The city is currently considering an ordinance that would prohibit the parking, stopping or standing of a bus, van or other motor vehicles for passenger embarking or disembarking in beach parking lots unless there exists a lawful and authorized parking space in such beach parking lot and the applicable parking fee is paid. The ordinance does not pertain to school buses. A presentation detailing public works parking scenarios along with reports on sightseeing/tour bus regulations and vehicles for hire had been scheduled to take place during the July 22 session. However, several additional informational items were received by the city and were unavailable for review by council members before the meeting. The second reading and public hearing on the ordinance will take place on August 5 after 9:15 a.m. Since Tuesdays top priority was to introduce a proposed operating millage rate for the 2014 tax year, Mayor Kevin Ruane asked both ordinances related to recreation center fees which may be impacted as budget discussions continue be postponed until next month. His fellow council members unanimously agreed. Although not scheduled to be discussed, resident Karen Storjohann asked during the public comment portion of the continued on page 10Council Sets Initial Millage Rate Of 2.0861by Jeff LysiakAlthough the city council is hoping to adopt a lower figure by the time they conduct the first budget hearing in six weeks, Sanibel leaders introduced a proposed operating millage rate of 2.0861 mills and a rolled-back rate of 1.9995 mills for the 2014 tax year. The proposed millage rate had been suggested by members of the citys finance department, following their annual analysis of revenues, expenses and property valuations. By law, the city must submit a proposed operating millage rate to the Lee County Property Appraisers office prior to holding public budget hearings. This is our first pass at the budget, said Mayor Kevin Ruane during Tuesdays council meeting. Im happy to see property values go up to the point they did I wish they had gone up even more. Prior to their discussions on the budget, the council approved delaying action on several agenda items including ordinances amending the fee structure for user fees at the Sanibel Recreation Center which were moved to the next session, on August 5. Ruane also suggested increasing the citys beach parking fee from $2 to $3 per hour. Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who noted that he agreed with the finance staffs suggested millage rate, added that he fully believes we can come back with the rolled-back rate. Fellow councilman Mick Denham said that the citys expected increase in revenues almost gets us to the rolled-back rate. In addition, the citys proposed aggregate taxes levied, exclusive of voted debt service levies, is $8,972,173. The millage levy for the sewer voted debt service is continued on page 10

3 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014Complicated Burn Completed, Called Successfulby Jeff LysiakLast Wednesday afternoon, the third and final prescribed burn on Sanibel for 2014, which fire officials deemed was complicated due to heavy rainfalls earlier in the week, was completed. On July 13 and 14, staff from the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, firefighters from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Southern Florida/Caribbean Fire District and other agency partners, including the National Park Service and Florida Forest Service, conducted prescribed burns of both the Bailey Tract and SanibelCaptiva Road units. However, burning the Legion Curve units, which refuge fire management specialist Paul Ryan called a high complexity burn, was delayed 24 hours due to heavy rainfall throughout the day on Tuesday. Supervisory Refuge Ranger and Public Information Officer Toni Westland, stationed at the Sanibel Recreation Center alongside Heather Ferrand, mitigation specialist for the Florida Forest Service, received the all-go signal at 12:06 p.m. on July 16. Fire officials had to perform a test burn of a small section of the Legion Curve area before beginning the large-scale operation. They just let me know that the test on LC4 went well, said Westland before she began calling her contacts across the city including the refuge, Tarpon Bay Explorers, the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce and others letting them know the final prescribed burn had begun. A helicopter was used to deploy hundreds of ping pong-like balls (filled with potassium permanganate and ignited by injecting ethylene glycol) to light a majority of the 150 acres throughout Legion Curve. The remaining acreage was lit by hand by ground personnel using drip torches, which helped ignite greener and moistened sections of the area along Sanibel-Captiva Road. The oil contained in the leaves of palmettos and wax myrtles helps those burn very quickly, said Ferrand, observing the prescribed burn via her vehicle. They burn fast, and then they go out. By 7:21 p.m. that evening, the City of Sanibel emailed an all clear notification for residents and businesses that the fire had been completed. The JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge successfully completed three prescribed burns this week with the invaluable assistance of over 20 fire professionals from Florida Panther NWR, Merritt Island NWR, the Prescribed Fire Training Center, continued on page 7 Fire Management Officer Cass Palmer uses a drip torch to set fire to several small portions of the Legion Curve unit last Wednesday afternoon, completing the final prescribed burn for 2014 photos by Jeff Lysiak Legion Curve prescribed burn in progress Units bordering the shared use path were burned in small portions using drip torches Several fire officials set the prescribed burn by hand after a helicopter was used to ignite the first fire


ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 20144 Sanibel Historical Museum And Village Closing For Off-SeasonThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will close after Saturday, August 2 for the remainder of the summer and into early fall. The museum will reopen on Wednesday, November 5 and resume a Wednesday through Saturday schedule from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The time when the museum is closed to the public affords staff an opportunity to work on projects that get postponed during the busy season, make any needed repairs, repaint and spruce up the grounds. Museum volunteers also use the break to prepare next seasons exhibits and plan special events. Administrative staff members are busy updating databases, refining procedures, marketing and improving existing exhibits. Hurricane shutters go up on all the windows until the week before reopening. The village may be quiet, but we keep working behind the scenes to improve the museum and to prepare for next season, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. We all have more goals for the summer than we can probably fulfill, but every goal is a labor of love and makes the village a more enriching, educational and fun experience for our visitors. Next seasons visitors to the village can look forward to the grand opening of Shore Haven, as well as a continuing array of exhibits in each of the 11 historic buildings and special docent-led tours of the village at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. In addition, Twilight Talks, which have been very popular in recent years, are being planned. Meanwhile, work continues on Shore Haven and its Caretakers Cottage. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is currently open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). There is handicap access to all buildings. Admission is $10 for adults 18 and over. Members and children under 18 are free. For more information, call 472-4648 during business hours.

Outreach Program Provides Field Trips For KidsNo Child Left On Shore is an experiential environmental education outreach initiative specifically designed to provide disadvantaged and economically challenged youth the opportunity to learn about and experience the wonders of the marine environment through water borne field trips. This outreach initiative is a cooperative endeavor of Captiva Cruises and The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). This past Friday, 30 middle and high school students enrolled in The Immokalee Foundations Career Development and Readiness program and took part in a No Child Left On Shore field trip to Cayo Costa State Park. The Immokalee Foundation, through education empowerment and hope, builds pathways to success for the children of Immokalee. For the majority of the kids who participated in the cruise, it was their first outing on the water. At one point, when a group of dolphins came very close to the boat, there was sheer delight in the eyes of the students, seeing dolphins in the wild for the first time. Sea stars and snails were gathered and observed, and students explored the beach and gulf waters.For more information, including sponsorship opportunities, contact Kristie Anders, SCCF education director, at 4722329.

7 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 From page 3Complicated BurnBig Cypress National Preserve, the Florida Forestry Service, Sanibel Fire Rescue District and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, noted Paul Tritaik, refuge manager. The City of Sanibel provided essential support in public notification, outreach and traffic control. This team effort resulted in over 230 acres of refuge land and 30 acres of SCCF land being safely burned to improve habitat for rare species and to reduce hazardous fuels and lessen the chance for wildfire. According to Tritaik, the response from the public was overwhelmingly positive despite the temporary inconveniences of closures at the Bailey Tract, portions of the Shared Use Path and Indigo Trail, as well as Wildlife Drive bicycle restrictions. In addition, Tritaik explained that the prescribed burns were overall successful in reducing fuels and opening up portions of the habitat. The Legion Curve prescribed burn was the most complicated due to the close proximity of homes, roads and powerlines as well as the remoteness of some of the compartments requiring the use of a helicopter, he added. The San-Cap compartment missed may be tried again, but it is relatively small and not as complicated. Otherwise, the prescribed burning at Ding Darling NWR this year is, for the most part, complete.

Murphy, loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away at her Sanibel home on Friday, July 11, surrounded by family. Mary was born in Mamaroneck, New York, raised her family in Staten Island, New York and found her way to the island she fell in love with in 1986. Mary had many passions, the foremost being family and friends as evidenced by the relationships she nourished for more than 70 years. She had a special love for her home and community in which she lived. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining, traveling, the theater and taking care of her familys needs. She enjoyed life to its fullest. She was a supporter of the arts and all things Sanibel. Mary is survived by her three children; Lorraine Margolis and husband Michael, Frank Tumminello and his wife Nancy, Marie Ogden, three grandchildren; Shannon Tumminello and wife Samantha, Jessica and Nicole Ogden, and three great grandchildren; Frank, Talia and Jack. Mary seemed to do everything in threes. There is a hole in our hearts and she will be forever missed. Private services have already been held.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201414 Mantis Shrimp Week At Sanibel Sea Schoolsubmitted by Elly RundqwistAt Sanibel Sea School, we see seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet (aka, the rainbow).But did you know thats only a tiny portion of the color spectrum? Last week, we studied the mantis shrimp, who helped us imagine the rainbow from an entirely new perspective. Humans only have three color receptors, but mantis shrimp have sixteen. By putting ourselves in these little shrimps shells, campers were able to see the ocean with kaleidoscope eyes. All week long, campers investigated the lives of mantis shrimp. During a beach obstacle course, we imitated our crustacean friends behaviors by crawling under tarps, hopping in and out of hula hoops, and spearing balloons with our claws to symbolize feeding. Mantis shrimp pack the most powerful punch in the animal kingdom by smashing or spearing their prey. They move their claws so quickly that a bubble of boiling water is created. Since mantis shrimp have eyes so different from our own, campers dove deeper into the eye to explore vision. We dissected cow eyes, played games to test our own vision and looked at different types of lightbulbs through a spectroscope. The grand finale of our week was a giant celebration of color on the beach. We put on our cleanest white T-shirts, then challenged our fellow campers to a color war, drenching each other in buckets of colored dye until we became a human rainbow. In true Sanibel Sea School style, the surf paddling competition took place on Friday morning and the green team was awarded the Golden Coconut. Campers left the week with an ocean of new friends and experiences, and many with a new favorite crustacean. For more information about Sanibel Sea Schools summer camp programs, call 472-8585 or visit online at Coral Reef Week At Sanibel Sea School submitted by Elly RundqwistLast week, Sanibel Sea Schools teen campers packed up their masks, snorkels and sleeping bags and traveled to the Florida Keys for the adventure of a lifetime Coral Reef Week. After we pitched our tents on the beach at the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge and Campground, it wasnt long before the bugs started biting, the sun started sizzling and the tiny key deer came out to play. We spent three days snorkeling at Looe Key Reef and among nearby beds of sponges and sea fans, observing and studying ecosystems that are much different from those we find near Sanibel. Located about five miles offshore, Looe Key is a spur and groove reef teeming with diverse corals and marine life queen conchs, spotted eagle rays, and huge goliath grouper, to name a few. The unique formation of the reef allows snorkelers to float over shallow sections of reef and also practice free-diving in the deeper crevices. When they werent busy snorkeling in the deep blue, campers explored nature trails and played in the mangrove mud. We also went diving for shells and other ocean treasures around nearby bridge pilings, and dissected sponges and algae. We ended each day with a campfire, complete with smores, sing-alongs, and even a nature-themed fashion show. On Saturday afternoon, campers returned to Sanibel with countless bug bites, fish tales and new friendships. It was declared the best Coral Reef Week ever! by all who attended.

15 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014Shell Of The WeekThe Nutmegby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe elegant nutmeg, Cancellaria reticulata (Linnaeus, 1767), is one of the most coveted local species, always representing one of the best finds at the end of a successful shelling day. The species name evokes the reticulated shell sculpture and, although the nutmegs food and feeding mechanisms remain unknown, the arrangement of the alimentary system suggests a diet of soft tissue or fluid. The nutmeg belongs to the family Cancellariidae, a group of marine snails known to feed suctorially, sucking soft tissue, fluids or blood with the assistance of specialized feeding organs. Learn more about the nutmeg at shells/shelldetails.cfm?id=107. The nutmeg, Cancellaria reticulata; the photo of the live nutmeg was taken by Amy Tripp in Collier County.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201416 Plant SmartBract Factsby Gerri ReavesBracts are modified leaves or leaflike structures usually located at the base of a flower or inflorescence. Larger than the flower and usually more colorful too, they are often assumed to be the flower. Two common non-native plants illustrate the point. Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) flowers are not bright red, but tiny, yellow and enclosed in green cups. Bougainvilleas (Bougainvillea spectabilis and Bougainvillea glabra) vivid color comes from the papery bracts, not the small white tubular flowers at their center. The three native plants pictured have evolved this false flower effect to attract pollinators. Horsemints (Monarda punctata) soft lavender and yellow bracts attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The whorl of flowers, however, is yellow with purple spots, thus the other common name, spotted beebalm. This aromatic relative of the mint family is fast-growing and tolerant of salt, drought, pests and disease. Plant it in welldrained soil in sun to partial shade. What appear to be whitetop sedges (Rhynchospora colorata) drooping starlike flowers are actually green-tipped bracts. They surround the inconspicuous inflorescence, a cluster of cone-shaped spikelets of small white flowers. Also called painted sedge and starrush, this semi-aquatic wildflower is common along roadsides, in fields, marshes, wet pinelands, swales and ditches, and even in brackish sites. Its a good low-maintenance choice for a wet area or bog garden in full sun or partial shade. Wild poinsettias (Poinsettia cyathophora) bracts with red bases surround green berry-like flower clusters. A member of the spurge family, it blooms year round and is a butterfly nectar and larval plant. It will grow in almost any soil type in full sun to partial shade. This self-sowing and drought-tolerant wildflower is also called paintedleaf. Learn to recognize the flower within the flower. Are those colorful flowers or are they bracts? Plant Smart explores the plant life of South Florida and sustainable landscape practices.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201418 Mangrove Snapper Bite Just Getting Betterby Capt. Matt MitchellDodging and often getting wet in the rain was all in a normal day on the water again this week. Fishing was consistent, with the catch and release snook bite on the outgoing tides in and around the passes still the best bite in town. Along with the snook in the passes, there were some trout and a few upper slot and over the slot redfish. Other species that were in the game plan this week included mangrove snapper and gag grouper. While targeting trout out on the flats with small shiners this week, we got into a few good mangrove snapper bites. Having lots of small live shiners was the key to getting these snapper fired up and feeding. Look for these snapper to be out on the open flats with good tide movement in the four-foot range. Flats within close proximity to the passes were the best. Anchor up on the flat and chum with live shiners to get these snapper. Freeline or use a small float then a small circle hook rigged with light flouracarbon leader, either 15or 20-pound test. Lots of these snapper are between 12 to 14 inches and make great table fare. Other places to target these mangrove snapper are the passes and deeper mangrove points and docks. Small baits and light tackle make all the difference in the world when it comes to getting these leader shy fish to eat a bait. Inshore gag grouper fishing was still going on this week although the daytime strong outgoing tide pattern was less than perfect for targeting them in the deeper passes. I did catch gags up to 27 inches this week while fishing shallow structures in the sound. Big live baits including pinfish and grunts dropped to the bottom on heavy spinning gear is what it took to get them out of the structure. Often these grouper would hang up in the structure. After letting the line go slack for a while, we still managed to pull them free. This little trick of letting the hung up grouper relax for a while before reeling tight and pulling hard again often will let the fish swim free. Good early morning high tides all this week should have the mangrove redfish bite going off. Its been what seems like weeks since we had the right set up to target redfish under the bushes during the day. With our water temperatures hitting 90 degrees by the end of the day, getting out early while the water temperature is still somewhat cooler, anglers will hopefully find these fish more active than they have been. Live tail hooked pinfish will be my go-to bait along with cut mullet and ladyfish. While fishing one morning this week with Mike Bradley, his son Alex and friend George Hudson from Kentucky, we had a wide variety of species. We started our morning off in the passes, catching snook up to 30 inches and a few trout. Moving on, we made one stop for redfish and ended up catching a double header, one fish was only around 17 inches but the other was a quality model measuring in around 24 inches. As the morning outgoing tide began to slow, we switched it up to see if we could catch a gag grouper. Fishing one of my favorite channel markers in the southern sound, Hudson caught a quality 26-inch gag to take home for dinner. Despite getting rained on once, we had a quality morning on the water which included a Pine Island Slam.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.

Upon its arrival at CROW, Dr. Kristen Dub, DVM intern, discovered that the ibis had a six-prong hook embedded in its leg and wing, inhibiting the birds ability to walk or fly. The patient, now known as #1756, was rushed to emergency surgery. The medium-size white ibis is one of the most beloved wading birds in South Florida. So iconic is this elegant bird that in 1926, the University of Miami adopted the white ibis as its mascot. According to the official Hurricane student-athlete website, the ibis was chosen to represent the schools sports teams as A Bird of Courage. A Bird of Knowledge. A Bird of Strength and Speed. A leader of its species. During the grueling life-saving surgery, the large fishing hook was carefully removed: three-prongs were embedded in its wing and three in its leg. The damage to its wing was of greatest concern. That wound was very deep, explained Dr. Kristin. Both sites were thoroughly cleaned of debris and bandaged. As part of the patients recovery, Dr. Heather Barron prescribed antibiotics and pain medications. After three weeks of critical care, the white ibis made a remarkable recovery. He looks so good! Even the deep wound under the wing. He will go outside to exercise the wing in a few days then be released, said Dr. Kristin with a huge smile. Fish hook and line injuries are preventable. You can help keep our native and migratory wild birds safe by practicing responsible fishing techniques. If you are fishing off the shore, always pick up any monofilament line and dispose of it properly. Monofilament line can cut deeply when it becomes tangled around the legs, wings or necks of birds. Keep your days catch in a properly sealed container and dispose of cleaned fish carcasses in authorized areas. Avoid casting near trees. If you do accidentally hook a bird, do not cut the line. Many birds are easily captured with a large towel. Approach it slowly, holding the towel out in front of you. Once in range, throw the towel over the birds head or over its entire body. Restrain the head and wrap the towel around the bird, then quickly transfer it to a box before it escapes. Finally, contact a first responder at CROW (472-3644) immediately for further instructions. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit: www.

31 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show presents informative anecdotes about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, along with photos of patients admitted to the facility. In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, August 1 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center, located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road (across from The Sanibel School). Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 or under. The entry fee also includes access to the Visitor Education Center, which exhibits CROWs efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201432 Book Club Selectionsby Di SaggauUnbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is the story of an amazing journey taken by war hero Louis Zamperini, who died July 2 at the age of 97. It took Hillenbrand seven years to research and write the book. She never met Zamperini in person until after the book was published, however, they talked often by phone. Hillenbrand said she wanted to think of Zamperini as a young man while she wrote about his life, and what a life it was. Zamperini was an Olympic distance runner and World War II veteran who survived 47 days on a raft in the Pacific after his bomber crashed. He was captured by the Japanese and endured extremely harsh imprisonment for two years. Hillenbrand, who also wrote Seabiscuit, does an incredible job of describing the events that took place during Zamperinis extraordinary life. He was a bombardier in a B-24 named the Green Hornet that was on a rescue mission on May 27, 1943 when it malfunctioned and fell into the ocean. Only three of the 11 men on board survived the crash. Zamperini and two others shared a life raft fighting off hunger, thirst, heat, storms and sharks while trying to avoid being shot by Japanese planes. They existed on rainwater and the few fish and birds they caught. One man died of starvation. Zamperini and the co-pilot Second Lt. Russell Phillips were captured by a Japanese patrol boat. Zamperini was beaten almost daily by a sadistic guard, Corporal Mutsuhiro Watanabe. Prisoners called him the Bird. Watanabe took special pleasure in beating and humiliating Zamperini, who said the harshest punishment was losing his dignity. Zamperini became energized with the idea of killing Watanabe. After his liberation, he wrestled with depression and alcoholism until he attended a Billy Graham rally. It was a turning point in his life. He turned to Christianity and forgave all his tormentors. In 1998, he returned to Japan for the Winter Olympics torch relay, running past some of the camps where hed been a prisoner. In Unbroken, Hillenbrand brings to life the true story of a forgotten hero. She also reminds us how lucky we are to have her as one of our best writers of narrative history. Unbroken is storytelling at its finest. It will be out in paperback edition the end of this month. Top Ten Books On The Island1. Sanibel Flats by Randy Wayne White 2. Wonder by RJ Palacio 3.

35 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThis week, the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club was honored to host our new Rotary 6960 District Governor 2014-15 Pete Doragh and District Governor Elect 2015-16 Cyndi Doragh to our Friday morning meeting. Just to clear things up, yes, Pete and Cyndi are married but that just so happens to be. Each will steer their own course as governor and apply their own distinctive leadership style and abilities during their term. One of the first responsibilities as District Governor is to make a visit to each of the 50 Rotary clubs within their district. These visits set up groundwork for relationship building between district administration and club members. Part of Rotarys success is due to relationship building between our members and communicating ideas toward providing a way of approaching projects that will help build a more positive future for many worldwide: help prevent disease, provide clean water, support maternal and child health, encourage literacy, grow local economies and build peace. Governor Pete did emphasize that the districts main job is providing guidance when clubs are contemplating service projects based on the values of Rotary; many of these guidelines are directly related to match-grant funding from both the district and Rotary International. Each year, the Rotary International president announces his/her Rotary motto for the year. Rotary International President 2014-15 Gary C.K. Huangs motto is Light Up Rotary. As Pete told us, Light Up Rotary can be understood in a variety of ways. We are called to illuminate Rotary, we are called to ignite Rotary, and through Rotary, we brighten the world. Ignite that spark, create a presence in the community, build bonds, make sure our work is meaningful and valuable, and create opportunities to work together. Rotary Magazine this month states, The top two reasons people join Rotary are to give back to their communities and to connect with like-minded leaders and friends. Rotary connects leaders from all cultures and occupations who want to use their distinct expertise for good, people whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. Who step forward to tackle the toughest challenges and persevere to create lasting change in communities around the world. Rotarians have found ways of working together and with other like-mined organization on projects that have enormous impact on quality of life. Twenty-five years ago, Rotary International made the eradication of polio worldwide its top priority. We are on the verge of succeeding at that goal. It has been a long fight and we have had to overcome difficulties due to political interference, cultural and religious beliefs. Records from the 1980s state that 1,000 people each day were contracting polio worldwide; in the 1990s, only one person per day contracted polio. Today, Pakistan is the only country that has one reported case of polio in the last three years. Success is on the horizon. Pete used India as the poster child of overcoming obstacles such as language, culture, vast population, sanitation and doubt. Success will come soon, but the fight is not finished. Vaccines are still necessary to keep this virus from returning and Rotarians are leading the way with their financial and personal backing of Rotarys EndPolioNow campaign. We are in it for the long run; now is our chance to make sure no child is disabled by polio ever again. Each year, the District Governor gets to select projects that he encourages all clubs within the district to support. In 2014-15, it will support: The Cure Alzheimers Fund Funding new research focusing on curing/preventing Alzheimers disease. Gift Of Life Florida Providing hope to children from developing countries who suffer from heart disease. The program coordinates sustainable pediatric cardiac surgery and aftercare programs. RLYA The formation of a Rotary Leadership Youth Awards program. Our district will hold a weekend retreat/camp geared toward freshman and sophomore Rotary Club-sponsored candidates to focus on leadership potential and qualities. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201438 Nearly 40 Years Older Than McIlroy, Watson Shows Talents At British Openby Ed FrankWhile we marvel at the athletic prowess of the youngsters who have taken over the leader boards of professional golf Rory McIIroy, 25, winner of last weekends British Open, and Martin Kaymer, 29, the current U.S. Open Champion the accomplishment of 64-year-old Tom Watson was of equal amazement. Not to detract from the wire-to-wire championship of McIlroy, who is the third youngest player to win the cherished Claret Jug, we must, however, be astonished at five-time Open winner Watson who almost shot his age in the closing round by recording a four-under par 68. Playing in his 37th thats right his 37th British Open, Watson, who turns 65 in September, said modestly afterwards, I played a really solid round of golf a very good day from tee to green, but it would be nice to have shot 67 and end at even par. His four-day total of 289, one over par, was five strokes better than Tiger Woods. Watson claimed his first of five British Open titles in 1975, his initial appearance. He went on to win four more times on those brutal links courses; 1977, 1980, 1982 and 1983. He has played in every British Open in the last 39 years except 2004 and 2007. In his 37 British Opens, he has made the cut 31 times, and when he made the cut two years ago at Royal Lytham, he became the oldest to ever make the cut, breaking the record of Bob Charles who was 60 in 1996. He nearly won his sixth Open championship in 2009 at age 59, a near feat that few will forget. He held a one-stroke lead going into the last hole. A sudden gust of wind took his eight iron approach through the back of the green and three putts later he was tied for the title with Stewart Cink. The younger Cink finished the four-hole playoff with two birdies for the win over Watson in golfs oldest tournament. Watsons inspirational golf is what makes the game promising for old and young alike. In addition to his five Open titles, he has two Masters wins and a U.S. Open championship. He won 39 times on the PGA Tour and 13 times on the Champions Tour where he still competes. Just a few weeks ago, he was runnerup in the Senior PGA Championship to Colin Montgomerie, 14 years younger. Watson also will captain this years U.S. Ryder Cup team. The personable Watson has played frequently at the local ACE Group Classic, a tournament he has never won but has several second-place finishes. He played here in the 2014 event. The youthful McIIroy deservedly captured the headlines this past week for his marvelous victory at Royal Liverpool Golf Club. But if youre 25 or 85, you have to applaud the aging Tom Watson. And this year will not be his last British Open. Past champions usually cannot play in the tournament past 60. He was given a special exemption to play his grand finale next year at St. Andrews. The world will be watching. Miracle Win Nine of 10 Games; Half-A-Game Out of First The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team is on a tear, winning nine of 10 games through Monday of this week and climbing within half-a-game of first place in the Florida State League South Division. Winners of the South Division in the seasons first-half, the Miracle had recorded a 20-9 mark for the second-half. Byron Buxton, considered the top Minor League prospect in baseball, returned to the Miracle recently after suffering left wrist injuries in both spring training and early in the season. He was batting .325 in his last 10 games and was named the Florida State League Player of the Week. However, he was struck by a pitch on the same wrist last Friday and sidelined again. The Miracle will return home to Hammond Stadium Monday to begin a four-game series against Clearwater.

41 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 A couple of weekends ago, I was in New York City with my wife and youngest daughter. In addition to enjoying Central Park, SoHo, a couple of Broadway musicals (Kinky Boots is fantastic!), I had planned a visit to the 9-11 Memorial and Museum. It was as emotional an experience as you might imagine. In fact, I would go so far to say that every American school-age child should spend a few hours there, learning what happened. You may say that everyone in America is well aware of the tragedy. But thats really not the case. My eldest daughter, who will be 20 years old this year, was only in first grade when Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four planes, slamming two into the World Trade Center towers, one into the Pentagon and one bound for Washington, DC that crashed into Pennsylvania countryside as passengers bravely foiled the terrorists plans for that aircraft. A whole generation has reached adulthood since the events of September 11, 2001. Outside the museum are two memorial pools/waterfalls that exist in the footprint of the original twin towers. The names of all of the victims of both the 1993 parking garage blast below the towers and the 2001 attack are inscribed in bronze around the memorial. Once inside the museum, however, the true gravity of what happened hit me. The museum sits underground. One of the first things that you see is the retaining wall constructed with the towers to keep the Hudson River from flooding lower Manhattan. I didnt know this, but the towers and surrounding buildings were built on fill. When the towers collapsed, authorities worried that the retaining wall would give, which could have caused much greater loss of life. Twisted metal, artifacts and melted fire engines can be found in the vast spaces that one walks through. Meticulous explanation of what one is looking at can be found on didactic panels, and you can even download an app on your Smartphone to listen to audio explanations.One of the most moving exhibits is a giant room/gallery filled with pictures of the victims like a giant yearbook on huge walls. Interactive computer-like glass panels allow one to look up the details of the victims lives. My wife grew up with a man who was only 36 when the towers collapsed. We brought up his biography. He worked at Morgan Stanley. Pictures of him with his wife and two young daughters, along with his parents appeared, along with a written life biography written by his wife and parents. There was also a graphic detailing where he was when the towers collapsed. Needless to say, it was extremely emotional. I looked up a few colleagues with whom I had common clients including two who worked at Fiduciary Trust International who were trapped in the towers. I cant describe what its like to read their life stories as told by those that miss them dearly. One room warns you not to bring young children inside and where photographs are prohibited. Inside one finds the video images of the planes hitting the towers; in another exhibit, you see the flight patterns of all four planes, and while you watch the graphics unfold, you hear audio recordings of the terrorists of the plane that went down in Pennsylvania, as well as audio recordings that victims left on their families answering machines expressing their love in the final moments of life. There are images of people jumping from the towers rather than dying in the fires consuming their floors. If you didnt truly appreciate the heroism of the first responders, you do after walking through this museum. Many firefighters, policeman and EMTs lost their lives saving others. The last steel beam removed from the site, including the graffiti their units later inscribed on that beam in memoriam, is prominently displayed. A 20-minute video featuring commentary by our political leaders of the time, including New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and President George W. Bush, is worth the wait. Speaking of waits, expect large crowds, and reserve your tickets online before you go; see http:// They let crowds in according to the time stamp on your ticket you wait in a Disneyesque queue before entering.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201442 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My sons summer school teacher has been writing great work on his papers this summer. When I ask him why his work was great, he doesnt know why. I often say the same thing to him and Im guessing that there is a better way to tell him that I like what he has done. How can I say good work to a child to make it more meaningful? Jennifer S., Fort Myers Jennifer, You have asked an excellent question. Giving effective praise is important for increasing positive behaviors and there are certainly ways to make praise more effective for parents and teachers. Effective praise also encourages good behaviors and improves self-esteem in children. The more descriptive your praise is, the better. So instead of saying, Great work! parents and teachers should specify what was the great work. For example, Great work finishing your homework on time or sharing the video game controller with your brother specifies exactly which behavior was great. When youre specific about what a child did well, youre more likely to bring attention to the childs effort as opposed to the result of the effort. Another important distinction in giving praise is to recognize that praising effort is not the same as praising success. So praising your child for being smart doesnt teach what behavior was so smart. More value comes from identifying and labeling the smart behavior. Instead of saying you are so smart when your child does something wonderful, it would be better to say It was so smart how you completed your pre-writing work before writing your essay. Giving effective praise will help a child learn and maintain a new behavior. So when a child is learning a new behavior, its important to give praise whenever the behavior happens. Then once the child has learned the behavior, continue to give praise, but less frequently, and that will help the child maintain the behavior learned. Learning a behavior requires more frequent praise than maintaining a behavior. Parents and teachers should always be looking for opportunities to praise kids positive behaviors even the behaviors they think kids should already know and be doing regularly. Ultimately, praise should be genuine. Kids are smart and they intuitively know when something is communicated that is forced or fake. Changing how you deliver praise may take a bit of practice but it will be worth it as you see new positive behaviors develop in your children.

Hodges, Florida SouthWestern Add PartnershipHodges University and Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) have signed an agreement that creates a continuous educational path for students who want to earn Bachelor degrees in such workforce fields as software development, computer networking, digital design and graphics, and applied psychology. By broadening and deepening our longstanding partnership, Hodges and FSW have created a powerful incentive for students to continue their education and earn a college degree, said Dr. Kim Spiezio, executive vice president and provost, Hodges University. This initiative ultimately will help to prepare students for an amazing variety of exciting career opportunities in the fields of information technology and human services while also addressing urgent workforce needs throughout Southwest Florida. By bringing the strengths of both institutions together, we can provide students a seamless path to a career that is in demand, said Dr. Denis Wright, provost, vice president of academic affairs, FSW. This articulation agreement ultimately benefits the students we serve. It makes perfect sense for students who earn specific technical associate in science degrees from FSW to continue at Hodges for their bachelors degrees. The agreement enables students earning an associate degree at FSW in the following areas to seamlessly transfer into the corresponding bachelors degree program offered at Hodges University: AS in computer programming at FSW and a BS in software development at Hodges University AS in networking services technology at FSW and a BS in networking at Hodges University AS in architectural design and construction technology at FSW and a BS in digital design and graphics at Hodges University AS in human services at FSW and a BS in applied psychology at Hodges University Additionally, the agreement provides students a tuition scholarship from Hodges University of $100 per credit hour. Read us online at Scholarship For Children With Special NeedsParents of Florida children with significant special needs including autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy may now apply for a new type of K-12 scholarship that will allow them to individualize their childs education. The Florida Personal Learning Scholarship Account (PLSA) is for students in kindergarten through 12th grade with one of eight specific learning disabilities. It allows a parent to use the money to choose from a variety of education options. Those options include private schools, therapists, specialists, curricula and materials even contributions to a prepaid college fund. For 2014-15, the scholarships are worth an average of about $10,000. This scholarship will make all the difference in the world, said Dorothy Famiano of Brooksville, who has two children who are eligible for the scholarship accounts Nicholas, who has Spina bifida, and Danielle, 11, who has been diagnosed with autism. The new program was the brainchild of Sen. Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, who is in line to become Senate president and has a son with Down syndrome. Gardiner modeled it after Arizona, making Florida only the second state to offer this unique educational option. Under the PLSA, students can receive scholarship payments until they graduate from high school or reach age 22. Funds can roll over from one year to the next. The account remains in place until a student graduates from a postsecondary institution, or he or she graduates from high school and attends no postsecondary education for four consecutive years. Personal Learning Scholarship Accounts are an enormous vote in favor of truly providing an individualized education for children who have unique abilities in the state of Florida, said Christine Bancalari, co-founder of the Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida. Allowing parents to customize their childrens education to their individual needs is a win-win for all. The impact that this has on a childs educational success will translate into more opportunities for their future success as an adult in the community. The Home Education Foundation is very excited about the new Personal Learning Scholarship Accounts for special needs children, said Brenda Dickinson, the foundations president. This scholarship will help provide the much-needed therapies and services that most home educating parents cannot afford. We are so grateful that the state has given parents a choice and a helping hand to ensure that all special needs children can reach their full potential. To be eligible, a student must be diagnosed with either autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Intellectual Disability (severe cognitive impairment), PraderWilli syndrome, Spina bifida, Williams syndrome or entering kindergarten with development delays that cause them to be deemed high risk. The state set aside $18.4 million to seed the first year of the program, an amount that is estimated to serve roughly 1,800 students. Applications officially open on Friday through a nonprofit scholarship organization, Step Up For Students, which also helps administer the Tax Credit Scholarship for low-income students. Students will need either an Individual Education Plan from a school district or a formal diagnosis from a licensed physician or psychologist. The scholarship is also available for students who participate in home education.Parents can apply online at www. More details about the program are also available at the site.

43 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 Shell Point Expands Dining Space At The Springs Assisted Living FacilityShell Point Retirement Community more than doubled the dining space at The Springs, their month-to-month private pay assisted living facility, adding an additional 1,881 square feet to the original 1,131-square-foot area. Were responding to our growing resident population and needs, said Director of Assisted Living and Resident Support Services Rita Southern. While our Any-time Dining program is popular with residents, we found that many prefer to eat together, in groups, as part of their daily social activity. Mealtimes with others can help foster friendships and enhance a residents sense of belonging and community. The expanded space will also serve as the primary gathering location for entertainers and social gatherings within the building and features a private dining room wellsuited to family gatherings. Bob Southern, assistant to the president for project development, said Wright Construction Group was a natural choice for this project since they supplied Construction Management Services for the conversion of the Country Inn and Suites to The Springs in 2012. The desire was to have this addition not look like an addition, but rather to look as if it were always a part of the original building. I believe we have achieved that, he added. Wright Constructions familiarity with the building, along with their understanding of the quality Shell Point expects, makes them a great partner, said Southern. They also kept the project on schedule, which is important in minimizing any impact on our residents. Most importantly, they share our pride in the improvements we are bringing to the residents of The Springs. New to the Shell Point lifecare tradition, The Springs offers flexible assisted living services to the public on an economical month-to-month private pay basis while maintaining the high quality care for which Shell Point is known. Located at the entrance to Shell Point, The Springs is less than two miles from the Sanibel Causeway.

The carefully plotted race, which draws hundreds of runners each year, supports FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. in its mission of neighbors helping neighbors. The FISH 10K is such an important sponsorship for us for so many reasons, said Bank of the Islands president Robbie Roepstorff. The 10K is a great community wellness event that gives islanders a chance to participate in a safe and wellorganized fitness activity.

FISH supplied children with weekend food supplies through its backpack program and sponsored $10,456 in island youth scholarships. FISH does great work and our bank is honored to support their efforts, Roepstorff added. Bank of the Islands is the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva. It has been dedicated to providing genuine personal service and on-site decision making with an undeniable interest in the community it serves. Bank of the Islands philanthropic support touches many worthy organizations like FISH, said John Pryor, vice president of FISH and 10K committee co-chairman.

Taking that extra step to make sure your calculations are just right can mean the difference between excitement and disappointment on the day of new furniture delivery. Floor plans to scale are a great first measure. But the best way to make sure youve checked twice is achieved with the use of a little painters tape. Taking the dimensions of a piece of furniture and taping them out on the floor where youre thinking about placing your new furniture is a great way to bring your floor plan to life. This is also a great way for you to actually see the space you will need to accommodate your new furniture pieces. Painters tape is designed to be inexpensive and easy to remove without harming carpet, tile or hardwood. In addition, remember to check the size and clearance of doorways and turns especially on staircases, hallways and landings to be sure you can access the room and final area of placement of your new furniture pieces. So the next time youre not quite sure how a new piece will look, or how much space you will need, take a moment and tape it out. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 201446 deaRPharmacistEnergy And Focus In A Tea Bagby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Reader: I didnt like tea growing up, but now it is a passion. I often want a caffeinated drink that isnt coffee. I used to drink a lot of yerba mate tea, because it lights me and increases my mental focus and energy. Ive discovered Guayusa now. Guayusa is pronounced gwhy-yousuh and its been enjoyed for centuries in other parts of the world. Local growers who live in the Amazon rainforest grow this on small farms, and I feel good about supporting them. Guayusa isnt technically a tea, its an herb that comes from the holly tree (Ilex guayusa), which has nothing to do with the tea plant Camellia sinensis that gives us black and green tea. Drink Guayusa early in the day because it gives you a lift, similar to coffee but less jolt and jitters. It is not black tea, and its not green tea. This is an herbal tea, so that should be OK for people with stones. However, make sure you its right for you especially if you have hypertension, heart disease or kidney stones. Im an avid tea maker, and I have noticed that guayusa is a more forgiving of the cook time. By that I mean if I let the yerba mate boil too long, it gets very bitter. With guayusa, its still good if you overcook it. Its less grassy than yerba mate and sweeter, so I dont need to add too much honey, which is nice for my insulin and glucose levels. It tastes more like green tea than anything else if I have to compare it to something. Guayusa is very healthy because it contains natural antioxidants and polyphenols. These ingredients are known to improve metabolism and blood sugar, and protect your cells from oxidation (cellular rusting). If youre on a budget, youll love guayusa because you can re-steep the herb numerous times. So one tablespoon can be re-steeped six times. After that, the flavor (and healing goodies) are all gone. The amount of focus and energy you get will also start to wane the more frequently you steep the same herb. My hope is that some of you addicted to caffeine and coffee might be able to break your addiction little by little by adding guayusa (or yerba mate). The potential for allergies with this herb exists, just like it does with any herb or drug. You can drink guayusa hot or cold. You can also add other herbals while brewing it, like a leaf of peppermint, or some ginger or cinnamon. If youre too busy to brew your own, just buy commercially prepared drinks. Look in the refrigerator section because some health food stores sell this bottled and chilled. You can buy prepared tea bags, instead of bulk herb. Ive tried Runa brand and appreciate all the flavors, and the fact that its non-GMO. I travel and find myself in different time zones, or on redeye flights so theres always a teabag in my purse.

Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I lost my father recently and ever since, my mother seems to be more and more anxious about everything. How can I help her?A: Your mother has experienced a major loss and may be faced with a lot of unknowns as she faces her life without your father. It is typical to experience anxiety, being focused on the future and worrying, fretting, stressing about what may or may not happen. All of these emotions are a result from living outside present moment awareness. Your mom, with assistance, needs to stay more in the moment, taking on one task at a time, moment by moment, day by day. She most likely feels a sense of overwhelm with all of the burdens on her plate. It is OK for her to reach out to her children, friends, clergy, even seek some counseling to help her get back into balance. She is also experiencing grief over your fathers passing. This is a very individual process and there is no set time she will feel healing. Make sure she has all the support she needs and ask her what you can do to help her with the tasks that are overwhelming. Remember to take one step at time. It all does not have to be done immediately. In time, and what she does with that time will help with the healing process. From page 419-11 Memorial And Museumtimes sell out weeks in advance. Ive visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC as well as Yad Vashem (the Holocaust memorial) in Jerusalem. While I would never compare tragedies how can you? I would say that the experience at the 9-11 Memorial is as impactful as those others. This one left me both saddened over the tragedy, and angry that a group of zealots halfway across the world is so hell-bent on destructing our ideals and way of life. It clarifies for me at least how important the struggle against militant Islamists is for our future and those of our children. If you find yourself in New York City dont miss the 9-11 Memorial and Museum. Craig R. Hersch.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I try to visit my very elderly aunt at least once a week at her retirement home. She has been confined to her bed after many strokes and she enjoys seeing me. Across the hall, I noticed a woman who regularly visits a woman similar to my aunt for a very short time. One day, we stopped to talk in the hall. I asked her how her mother was, and she said, No, I am not family. I am from Companions Who Visit. Later, I found she is paid by this womans daughter to check in and visit because the daughter doesnt have the time because she is too busy with her own commitments. The ladys fee is $1 per minute, and she stays 15 minutes twice a week. It seems very sad to me that the daughter is so busy that she just pays up rather than visit. Is this the place where modern times are taking us? Virginia Dear Virginia, Modern medical advances have extended our longevity, but as a result it has created many unmet social problems. I once heard of a man who had four very successful sons who were all too busy to attend his funeral. His wife buried him and worked for three months before the caring sons could get together for a memorial service. I think it is sad that family life seems to be so disintegrated, people so stressed, and successful businesses making so many demands. Who knows where it will go? People are meeting these needs, and very unusual services are now available. Lizzie Dear Virginia, I have never found it worthwhile to judge others based on limited, surface information. You have no idea what stressors, difficulties, challenges that family faces. You hardly know anything about this family, yet you are quick to pass judgment based on your own standards. A perfectly legitimate choice for families that have multiple, equally important priorities is to hire extra help. The intent is to provide care, reduce stress and prevent caregiver burnout and resentment. The daughter chose to have someone assist her in her care of her mother. She could just as easily have chosen not to hire anyone and not be able to visit herself. I am sure you would have something to say about that as well.

47 ISLAND SUN JULY 25, 2014 Beauty Inside OutInvest In Yourselfby Kay CaspersonWe all know the importance of making good investments, whether its our home and other real estate, the car we drive, our household electronics and appliances, the food we eat, the clothes we wear or the products we use. Sometimes we opt to save a few dollars by purchasing cheaper alternatives to get us by, but it can leave us feeling less satisfied and more disappointed than if we had splurged on the more expensive, high-quality item instead. Thats not always the case, and its good to be frugal when youre running a household on a budget, but that doesnt mean you cant or shouldnt invest in yourself. Quality doesnt always mean expensive, and its important to note you dont have to be financially wealthy to live a happy, high-quality lifestyle, especially if youre investing your valuable time and energy in cultivating Beauty Inside Out in every aspect of your life emotionally, spiritually, physically, environmentally and socially. I created my personal lifestyle philosophy of Beauty Inside Out to enhance the quality of my own life, and it ended up inspiring all of the high-quality skincare products and cosmetics I create and sell in my boutiques and online. Beauty Inside Out is an all-encompassing concept that encourages establishing and maintaining the delicate balance between inner and outer beauty, and overall health and wellness in order to live a happy, beautiful, balanced life. I dont just sell face wash and lotion each of my skincare products features a lifestyle affirmation that helps people improve the quality of their lives as they improve the quality of their skin. So, how can you invest in yourself without breaking the bank? Here are some ideas to get you started: Donate volunteer hours, however many, whenever you can, to a cause or organization thats important to you. Youll be helping others in your community, but youre also investing in your own emotional and spiritual growth. Schedule time for yourself in advance, even if its just 15 minutes to relax and find your center. Every once in a while, spring for fresh ingredients instead of buying bagged salad or frozen entrees. Find your favorite quality products such as groceries, beauty items, clothing and accessories, and other everyday products and keep an eye out for in-store and online sales and coupons. Avoid the urge to make impulsive, low-quality purchases simply because the price is slashed. Allow yourself the occasional treat or indulgence, as long as it improves the quality of your life. Spend a little extra on high-quality shampoo or a wellmade, durable (yet still stylish) work bag or purse. Sleep in an hour longer on Saturday. Take a notebook to the beach or another peaceful, secluded spot, and spend some time drawing, writing or just relaxing. Whether youre investing your money, time or energy, making smart investments in yourself is essential to discovering Beauty Inside Out. How can you invest in yourself? Kay Casperson lives on Sanibel. She produces her own inspirational collections of skincare, cosmetics, apparel and accessories. She can be reached at Eden Energy MedicineCare For Your Eyes With The Tibetan Eye Chartby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)Over the last several weeks, you have learned daily exercises to improve your vision. The last exercise is to use the eye chart, which I keep in our bathroom so when I am seated on the toilet (dealing with the reality of life), I can just pick it up and use it. Plus, by having it there, it reminds me to use it. The Tibetan Eye Chart is specifically designed to strengthen the muscles that control your eyes and activating the energies associated with vision. The chart is shown here and is provided courtesy of Innersource, the non-profit foundation for Donna Edens Energy Medicine (it is copyrighted). I have found that sometimes, clients or students get headaches from doing this exercise if they do the entire chart the first time. If your eyes are tired or you have eye issues, go slowly, as suggested below. 1. Hold the chart 4 to 6 inches from your nose. (As an aside, if you post the chart on the wall, you will be able to stand in front of it and then move back about 3 feet and repeat the same pattern. However, I have found it easier to use by holding it in my hand and then holding it at arms length and repeating the process.) Begin in a clockwise direction. Start at the red dot in the middle, and with your eyes trace around the edges of the irregularly shaped spokes (the ones with blocks off each side), then circle the black dot at the top of the spoke, continuing to the next spoke until you have traced the entire chart. Now, reverse and go counter-clockwise. If this is too much for you, start with the straight spokes only (and ignore the spokes with the 6 divots on the side). As the muscles become comfortable, increase to include all the spokes. 2. Stand 3 feet from the chart and repeat. 3. If you wear glasses, do each sequence with the glasses and the next sequence without them. This means you will be doing a total of 4 sequences each day. You may want to keep a journal of changes you observe in your eyes as you try these exercises. Give them time to change the habits of many years. Have fun with your energy!

But you might want to be more tactful in discussing a sensitive issue with a family member. Remember: You can give advice without giving offense. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unexpected workplace snag should be handled quickly and efficiently so that it leaves you time for family get-togethers. Also, you might soon get that long-sought apology. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor family matters, especially where children might be involved. Spending time with loved ones helps restore some much-needed balance to your typically busy schedule. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That seemingly clear-cut agreement might not be quite so straightforward after all. Recheck for language that could make you liable for hidden costs and other unpleasant surprises. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Careful, Kitty. Better to deal with someone with proven reliability than with a big talker who promises much but cant confirm that he or she will deliver. Your social life really zings this weekend. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your matchmaking skills are at peak performance levels both in helping to staff workplace teams for upcoming projects and for bringing people together on a more personal basis. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youre finally seeing some progress with your new venture. But be prepared for it to continue at a slower pace than youre used to. Meanwhile, a loved one could be preparing a surprise. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A family members success pulls you into the spotlight as well. Enjoy it, but dont let it overshadow or otherwise obstruct what youre doing with your own creative projects. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Using what you already know might not be quite enough to get a proposed project off the ground. Look for any new information that might help tilt the scales in your favor. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: While a changing workplace environment can be daunting for some, it could be the challenge youve been hoping for. If so, confront it with confidence and move on. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Its a good time to recheck travel arrangements for any changes that could work to your advantage. Aspects also favor strengthening and restoring old, fraying relationships. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Using your intuitive reasoning helps you cut right through the double-talk and go straight to whats really going on around you. Stay the course until all your questions are answered. BORN THIS WEEK: You radiate light and warmth, and others love being close to you. On Aug. 1, 1498, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sets foot on the American mainland for the first time, in present-day Venezuela. Thinking it was an island, he christened it Isla Santa and claimed it for Spain. Columbus, a deeply religious man, decided that Venezuela was the outer regions of the Garden of Eden. On July 29, 1862, Confederate spy Marie Isabella Belle Boyd is arrested by Union troops and detained for providing crucial information to the Confederates during the war. It was the first of three arrests. Boyd was just 18 years old. On Aug. 2, 1876, Wild Bill Hickok, one of the greatest gunfighters of the American West, is murdered in Deadwood, South Dakota. Hickok was playing cards with his back to the saloon door when a young gunslinger named Jack McCall shot him in the back of the head. On July 31, 1937, Charles Martine, an Apache scout who played an important role in the surrender of Geronimo in 1886, dies on the Mescalero Reservation in New Mexico. After being found, Geronimo agreed to a meeting with Gen. Nelson Miles, during which he gave his unconditional surrender. Martine and Geronimo were exiled, and Martine never did receive his promised reward. On July 28, 1945, a United States military plane crashes into the Empire State Building, killing 14 people. Upon impact, the planes jet fuel exploded. One engine from the plane went straight through the building and landed in a penthouse apartment across the street. On July 30, 1956, two years after pushing to have the phrase under God inserted into the pledge of allegiance, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs a law officially declaring In God We Trust to be the nations official motto and be printed on all U.S. paper currency. On Aug. 3, 1965, CBS-TV news shows pictures of men from the First Battalion, Ninth Marines setting fire to huts in the village of Cam Na, Vietnam, despite reports that the Viet Cong had already fled the area. The film report sparked indignation and condemnation of the U.S. policy. It was novelist Ayn Rand who made the following sage observation: You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. Those who study such things say that penguins are ticklish. On the whole, Texas is a good bit hotter than Ohio, wouldnt you think? You might be surprised to learn, then, that on a per capita basis, Cleveland has 42 times as many swimming pools as Fort Worth. The 21 Club is a posh New York restaurant that has been in operation since 1922, though it has undergone some changes since its early days. The eaterys policy prohibiting women from wearing pants to dine didnt change until 1969. That was the year when Laugh-In actress Judy Carne entered wearing what has been described as a tunic-topped pants suit. When she was told she wouldnt be allowed to dine, she took off her pants and left them in the coat-check room. The tunic by itself just barely qualified as a micro-mini, but it was enough. The 21 Club changed its policy the next day. Smiling is a natural human instinct. Even people who have been blind since birth smile when theyre happy. Ireland has the distinction of being the first nation in the world that had one woman succeed another woman as head of state, when, in 1997, Mary MacAleese was elected president after Mary Robinson served in that position. During World War I, the opposing armies called a truce to celebrate Christmas 1914. During the truce, a group of German soldiers and a group of British soldiers met in the no-mans land between the opposing trenches to play a soccer match. Forever is composed of nows. -Emily Dickinson THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE
