JOIN MAKE-A-WISH AT THE 2nd ANNUAL WALK FOR WISHEs Walk the walk by joining Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire at the 2nd Annual Walk For Wishes presented by The Grainger Foundation on Saturday, April 21. The festivities take place the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Make-A-Wish Orange County’s goal is to raise over $200,000 at this year’s charity walk event. Last year, Orange County’s Walk For Wishes saw around 1,100 participants and raised approximately $115,000 – enough funds to help grant more than 17 wishes for local children. It was the most successful inaugural Walk For Wishes event to date for any Make-A-Wish chapter in the nation. This year, the goal for Orange County’s walk is to double participants, funds raised and wishes granted. The charity walk event includes a 2-mile walk for teams and individuals and a “World of Wishes” festival. The festival includes booths for each of the different kinds of wish experiences: I wish to have, I wish to be, I wish to go, and I wish to meet. The world of wishes festival will also give the public a chance to meet with wish kids and families to learn about their experiences. Participants can also enjoy free rides on the Great Park Balloon and soar 400 feet to see the surrounding landscape. The Great Park Balloon is the only tethered helium (not hot air) balloon in

yappy hour? a cocktail party for dogs? Follow Fido to Yappy Hour, a monthly cocktail party for canines and their companions at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. It’s the Ulti-Mutt Dog Party with pooches, hounds and pups of all sizes romping and playing on The Dana Lawn. Canines enjoy complimentary hand-made dog biscuits and lapping up refreshing libations, thanks to bacon, chicken, cheese, beef and liver flavored water, while their companions can purchase burgers, brews and wines, with proceeds going to support the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter. The Second Season of Yappy Hour is held Thursdays, May 3, June 7, July 5, August 2, and September 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. on The Dana Lawn. Yappy Hour is part of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel’s Community Footprints program. It is an event that brings the local community together, but also generates awareness and support for charitable causes. From the first Yappy Hour in April 2011, the event grew in popularity with more than 1,200 guests attending the October Howl-O-Ween Yappy Hour where a check for $7,500 was presented to Pet Project Foundation, whose mission is to enhance the quality of life of all companion animals in a pro-humane manner through compassion, responsibility, education and service. Through Community Footprints dedicated Ritz-Carlton Ladies and Gentlemen provide a wide range of support and services to their community, including fund-raising for local charities, reading to the blind, preparing and serving lunches at homeless shelters, donating books to schools and volunteering at food banks. The Laguna Beach Animal Shelter opened in

1975 by a group of volunteers. The Shelter serves the residents of Laguna by providing temporary care for lost, stray and sick or injured animals rescued by Animal Services Officers within the city limits. At any one time, the facility houses dogs, cats, and a small number of other animals. Every animal at the Shelter is held for seven days for reclaiming by its owner. Dogs and cats that remain unclaimed are seen by a veterinarian, bathed and groomed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered/spayed and then put up for adoption. The aim of adoption is to place the animal in the most compatible situations possible and ensure an appropriate match between pet and owner. While the Shelter’s basic upkeep and routine operations are funded by the City of Laguna Beach, it is dependent on private donations to cover all other expenses. The City of Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, located at 20612 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel premiered as the first luxury resort along coastal Orange County in August 1984. Twenty-six years later, the resort is a re-imagined surfside retreat that awakens guests’ senses with its unique ocean-front setting and remarkable service heritage. The resort is the premiere destination for travelers who desire a playful approach to Southern California luxury.

Specializing in music lessons for all ages. “I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music... are the keys to learning.” - Plato

The resort has been the recipient of many awards over the years, but is proud to boast earning AAA Five Diamond status for the 27th year, the longest in California. The resort offers many extraordinary luxury experiences including Raya, 180blũ, The Market Place, Eno, Bar Raya, The Spa and JeanMichel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment.

The views and opinions expressed are those of the publisher and not any organization. No reproduction, in whole or in part is permitted without the express written permission of Newport News.

With the ongoing drawdown of service members from Afghanistan, military families are preparing for the return of loved ones. The homecoming of a service member can be very exciting, but it is also a significant transition that affects the entire family — especially children. Fortunately, military families don’t have to face this transition alone. The Real Warriors Campaign (www. realwarriors.net) offers support for families throughout the deployment cycle. The campaign, an initiative of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE), promotes the processes of building resilience, facilitating recovery and supporting reintegration for returning service members, veterans and their families. With tips from the Real Warriors Campaign, families can prepare for the excitement and potential challenges of a parent’s return home. Communicate: Prior to a homecoming, it is important for parents or caregivers to communicate with their children and remind them that, just as they have grown and changed during the course of a deployment, it is likely that their parent has also had new experiences. By talking about some of these changes before the reunion, families can reduce the anxieties of a homecoming. Real Warriors Campaign volunteer Sheri Hall experienced the challenges of reintegration firsthand when her

husband, Army Maj. Jeff Hall, returned from his second deployment. She advises military families to communicate as openly as possible. “Encourage children to be vocal — to tell their families what’s bothering them,” Hall said. As children open up, be prepared for a range of emotions. It is important for parents to remain calm and understanding while listening to their children’s concerns. Be Patient: Military families experience a natural adjustment period after deployment, during which children may experience excitement, as well as nervousness and anxiety. Families can ease concerns by taking time to get to know each other and routines again. Maj. Hall advises returning service members to be open to change during this transition. “Returning from deployment can be challenging. It’s important to be patient and remember some things may have changed while you were gone. Take time to get to know your family again,” Maj. Hall says.

Anticipate Change: During the course of a deployment, new family schedules and routines may have developed. For returning parents, it is important to remain open and flexible and learn the family’s new dynamic. It is also important for the entire family to help the returning service member adjust to changes that have occurred. Homecomings are an important time for all military families, and communication, patience and flexibility help pave the way for a positive transition to reconnect with loved ones. For more tools, tips and resources for military families, visit the Real Warriors Campaign online at www. realwarriors.net or contact the DCoE Outreach Center to talk with trained health resource consultants for assistance 24/7 by calling 866-966-1020.

Five Spring Steps for a Beautiful Summer Yard Think ahead with a good yardcare routine this year so you’ll have a backyard oasis through the year for entertaining or simply relaxing and enjoying the hazy, lazy days of summer with family and friends. There’s simply nothing that compares to running barefoot through the lush green grass, here are some tips to get started: 1) Begin with a good spring clean up, which includes raking leaves and removing debris, tree guards and burlap. Just be careful not to remove mulch from perennials or shrubs too early, or to rake your flower garden too vigorously. Doing so could damage the soil, tendering new bulbs and emerging plants. 2) Clean, repair, sharpen, lubricate and tune all of your garden tools, mowers and trimmers, so they are ready to go when you are. 3) Testing your soil is the starting point of any lawn fertilization program. Consider testing your soil each time you plant new seed. State Extension services and private labs offer kits that let you mail in soil samples for analysis. The reports will give you an accurate reading of what your lawn needs and how

much of it should be applied. While tests don’t have to be done every year, they are a good idea every three or four years. 4) Control crabgrass, dandelions and clover, three of the most common weeds you’re likely to see trying to take hold in your lawn. Crabgrass is best tackled before it emerges from the ground and begins to grow leaves. Conversely, members of the broadleaf weed family – like dandelions, clover, plantain, chickweed, and spurge – require a treatment that comes into direct contact with the plant’s leaves, so they must be dealt with, once they’ve made their appearance known. Be sure to choose a product that is best suited for your region, especially if living in the south. For a simple spring lawn care r o u t i n e , t r y G r e e n Vi e w w i t h GreenSmart Crabgrass Control plus Lawn Food, and Broadleaf Weed Control plus Lawn Food in a zero-phosphate formulation. In addition to handling tough weeds, they also fertilize in one easy application. The broadleaf control kills over 250 of the toughest weeds,

as listed on the package label. Look for lawn fertilizers with a slow-release nitrogen ingredient for strong roots and long lasting results. Once you get it on the lawn – you’ll be done for the season because the slow-release nitrogen provides your lawn with controlled, steady nutrition – resulting in thicker, healthier grass. That means no excess growth, and less mowing. 5) Set your mowing height at 2 1/2 to 3 inches and mow at the same height all growing season. Try not to remove more than 3/4

inch of grass at any single mowing. Whenever possible, mow during the cooler morning or evening hours to avoid damage to the turf. For additional lawn care tips and more information about the complete GreenView with GreenSmart product line, visit www.greenviewfertilizer.com or call 1-800-233-1067.

Top Five Tips for Growing Beautiful Roses From June to Sept., roses add a special flourish to yards, gardens and public parks throughout the U.S. But for many gardeners, tending roses may seem intimidating. With 23 years of experience, Jamie Shiffer, head gardener at Hershey Gardens in Hershey, Pa., knows a thing or two about cultivating a beautiful rose, in all of its varieties. Here are Shiffer’s top five rose gardening tips for gardeners of all experience levels: Plant and fertilize early. Consider planting new rose bushes in early spring. “Both new and existing rose plantings will need to be fertilized at this time,” says Shiffer. He recommends applying a slow-release fertilizer surrounding the base, such as the GreenView with GreenSmart Rose Food, which is formulated with essential macro and micro nutrients that provide extended feeding for up to 12 weeks. Research reveals it helps to produce superior plant growth, improve plant health and vigor, and increase buds, blooms and plant yield. After fertilizing, thoroughly water your roses. If desired, you can apply two inches of mulch around the plant. Avoid over watering. “You should Page 6

water roses sparingly throughout the very hot season,” recommends Shiffer. “The biggest mistake people make when watering is to water from overhead with a hose, instead of at ground level,” says Shiffer. Watering from above, Shiffer explains, can cause black spots to appear on the petals and throughout the day. As the heat intensifies, the water on the petals promotes fungal growth. To avoid this, water at ground level first thing in the morning. Prevent black spot. While good watering techniques can prevent fungal growth, for some gardeners, a humid environment can still lead to the same problem. “Treat black spot using a fungicide spray application on the plants every two weeks,” says Shiffer. Prune for increased plant growth. To encourage rejuvenation and growth from your rose bushes, be sure to deadhead through Sept. Count from the blossom down to the fifth leaf and make an angled cut. Maintain throughout each season. Regardless of variety, roses require year round maintenance. Use this calendar as a guide to care for your rose bushes: March – Thin out the plantings;

The Newport News

cut them back to 8 or 12 inches in length. April – Beginning in late April or early May, fertilize roses with a slow-release fertilizer that will last for 3 months, such as GreenView with GreenSmart Rose Food. May to Oct. – Use spray application on roses every two weeks. From June to Sept., deadhead your plantings, so they will push new growth. S e p t . – Re mo v e rose petals without cutting the bulb off completely. Nov. – Cut all roses back for the winter to 32 inches in height. For novice gardeners, Shiffer recommends starting with star roses or knockout roses, as they are among the most disease and insect resistant. “They come in many different colors and produce blooms throughout the year,” says Shiffer.

St. Patrick’s Day in America and Ireland Before doing my recent research on St. Patrick’s Parades, I assumed, as I imagine that many people do, that the mother of all St. Patrick’s Day parades must be in Ireland. In studying the history of the celebrations I learned that my assumption was incorrect. In fact, the “original” St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held in New York, 16 years before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The tradition of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day parades began as a response to oppression. An English law forbid the Catholic’s parades, but allowed a religious procession after Mass. So, on this technicality, the Irish Catholics got a permit for a church procession. The St. Patrick’s procession would leave from the Cathedral after Mass. Therefore the original parades were actually an act of defiance. While the parades have become an accepted part of the mainstream in the United States, historically, that has not been the case. There are several cities that started having parades in the early years, only to suspend them during times of hardship. The times of hardship included anti Irish sentiment, two World Wars and the Great Depression. Up until the mid nineteenth century, the majority of Irish immigrants in

America were members of the Protestant middle class. The 1845, the Great Potato Famine hit Ireland and close to a million poor, uneducated Catholic Irish started pouring into the United States. The Irish immigrants were despised when they first immigrated, and had trouble finding even menial jobs. They soon began to realize that their great numbers gave them political power and they began to organize. Their voting block became known as the “green machine”. The St. Patrick’s’ Day parades became a show of strength for Irish Americans and a “must attend” event for politicians. As the parades became part of the mainstream society, Protestants celebrated alongside the Catholics and they all enjoyed the party. What started as a religious procession became a celebration with music, dancing and green beer. St. Patrick’s Day and green beer have become synonymous. It’s traditional in many cities for everyone to go on a pub crawl after the parade and drink copious quantities of green beer, which is simply regular beer with some green food dye added. While the St. Patrick’s Day party reigned in American, the Irish observed St Patrick’s Day as a holy day. St. Patrick’s Day had been a solemn

holy day for centuries. As a holy day, the saloons were closed, which was the opposite of the parties that occurred in America. St. Patrick lived over 1600 years ago. He had endured a turbulent life. He was captured and enslaved at the age of 16. He worked as a slave in Ireland, part of that time working as a shepherd. He escaped and became a man of God, entering the priesthood. He was educated in a monastery in France. He was made a Bishop and was returned to Ireland, this time to work as a missionary and convert the pagans to Christianity. He was successful in converting many people to Christianity. The legend of St. Patrick is that he led the snakes out of Ireland. However, as snakes are not indigenous to Ireland, it is believed that the legend is symbolic. Most believe that the snakes of legend were actually symbolic of the pagans that were converted. St. Patrick is credited with using a shamrock to explain the holy trinity to pagans. Thus the shamrock is symbolic of the holy day. In 1995, Ireland set up a St. Patrick’s Day Festival, with the goal of capitalizing on the popularity of the celebration and to encourage tourism to Ireland.

The First St. Patrick Festival was held on March 7, 1996. In 1997 the event was a 3 day festival. This year the five day festival will feature 4,000 performers, with one millions people celebrating. Events include music, street theater, family carnivals, comedy, street performances, dance, a treasure hunt, night spectacles, and many celebrants. In Ireland the St. Patrick’s Day Festival is an event that draws locals and tourists. The country, with it’s long history of honoring St. Patrick and his good works sounds like a great party. On the other hand, if you want to go to the original St. Patrick’s Day Parade, New York is the place.

the symbols of St. Patrick’s Day St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday known for parades, shamrocks and all things Irish. From leprechauns to the color green, find out how symbols we now associate with St. Patrick’s Day came to be, and learn about a few that are purely American invention. The Shamrock The shamrock, which was also called the “seamroy” by the Celts, was a sacred plant in ancient Ireland because it symbolized the rebirth of spring. By the seventeenth century, the shamrock had become a symbol of emerging Irish nationalism. As the English began to seize Irish land and make laws against the use of the Irish language and the practice of Catholicism, many Irish began to wear the shamrock as a symbol of their pride in their heritage and their displeasure with English rule. Irish Music Music is often associated with St. Patrick’s Day—and Irish culture in general. From ancient days of the Celts, music has always been an important part of Irish life. The Celts had an oral culture, where religion, legend and history were passed from one generation to the next by way of stories and songs. After being conquered by the English, and forbid-

den to speak their own language, the Irish, like other oppressed peoples, turned to music to help them remember important events and hold on to their heritage and history. As it often stirred emotion and helped to galvanize people, music was outlawed by the English. During her reign, Queen Elizabeth I even decreed that all artists and pipers were to be arrested and hanged on the spot. Today, traditional Irish bands like The Chieftains, the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem are gaining worldwide popularity. Their music is produced with instruments that have been used for centuries, including the fiddle, the uilleann pipes (a sort of elaborate bagpipe), the tin whistle (a sort of flute that is actually made of nickel-silver, brass or aluminum) and the bodhran (an ancient type of framedrum that was traditionally used in warfare rather than music). The Snake It has long been recounted that, during his mission in Ireland, St. Patrick once stood on a hilltop (which is now called Croagh Patrick), and with only a wooden staff by his side, banished all the snakes from Ireland. In fact, the island nation was never home to any snakes. The “banishing of

the snakes” was really a metaphor for the eradication of pagan ideology from Ireland and the triumph of Christianity. Within 200 years of Patrick’s arrival, Ireland was completely Christianized. Corned Beef Each year, thousands of Irish Americans gather with their loved ones on St. Patrick’s Day to share a “traditional” meal of corned beef and cabbage. Though cabbage has long been an Irish food, corned beef only began to be associated with St. Patrick’s Day at the turn of the century. Irish immigrants living on New York City’s Lower East Side substituted corned beef for their traditional dish of Irish bacon to save money. They learned about the cheaper alternative from their Jewish neighbors. The Leprechaun The original Irish name for these figures of folklore is “lobaircin,” meaning “small-bodied fellow.” Belief in leprechauns probably stems from Celtic belief in fairies, tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. In Celtic folktales, leprechauns were cranky souls, responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for

their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure. Leprechauns had nothing to do with St. Patrick or the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, a Catholic holy day. In 1959, Walt Disney released a film called Darby O’Gill & the Little People, which introduced America to a very different sort of leprechaun than the cantankerous little man of Irish folklore. This cheerful, friendly leprechaun is a purely American invention, but has quickly evolved into an easily recognizable symbol of both St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland in general.

24-voice professional chamber choir presents a musical tribute to Joan of Arc on the 600th anniversary of her birth. On Sunday, April 29, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., Pacific Chorale’s 24-voice professional chamber choir, the John Alexander Singers, will perform a concert titled “Maiden and Martyr” in the Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano. Artistic Director John Alexander will conduct this program of works by Josquin des Prez, Gregorio Allegri, Leonard Bernstein and David Lang. The program pays tribute to the French national heroine and patron saint Jeanne d’Arc (Joan of Arc, c. 1412–1431). The music of Josquin represents the summit of the Franco-Flemish school of composers that originated during Jeanne’s life. The Bernstein selections were written for The Lark, a play by Jean Anouilh inspired by the martyr’s life and trial. David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion, an artistic highlight of the 2010–2011 season, returns for this program in a new semi-staged presentation that will travel to France in summer 2012 for the work’s Paris premiere.

“For The Love of A Child” Nets over $250k for ChildHelp OC The Orange County Chapter of Childhelp celebrated the twenty-sixth annual “For The Love of a Child” Fashion Show and Luncheon at the beautiful Marriot Hotel in Newport Beach; sponsored by South Coast Plaza, under the direction of Kathryn Glassmyer, Director of Community Relations at South Coast Plaza. The latest Spring designs were featured including Bally, Calypso St Barth, Canali, David Yurman, DKNY, Escada, Saks Fifth Avenue, St. John, Versace, Ted Baker and Tory Burch. Chairpersons Diana Miner and Kristen James indicated that the event netted over $250,000 with approximately 400 guests attending. The proceeds will benefit the hundreds of abused and neglected children cared for by Childhelp. The annual Children’s Friend Award was presented to Lauri Burns. She was victim to child abuse and spoke about her life growing up. Today Lauri is sure that her suffering was meant to prepare her for her life’s mission; to rescue children of a foster care system that is failing them. Who better to understand someone coming out of the foster care system than someone who lived it. Aware like herself, emancipated eighteen year old children are very often left to fend for themselves with nowhere to go and no money, Lauri was determined to provide hope for these children. In 2008 Teen Project was founded. A home in Lake Forest was purchased, and that home would provide the emotional, financial and career guidance needed to mentor independent adults. In addition to the Children’s Friend Award, the Orange County Chapter of Childhelp was thrilled to give the Children’s inspiration award to Casper Van Dien and Catherine Oxenberg, the dynamic Hollywood husband and wife team, were honored for all that they do for abused and neglected children. As a real life princess and award winning actress, Catherine met Casper on the set of the movie, The Collectors, and then worked with him again on the thriller The Omega Code. Casper’s breakout role was in the cult classic, Starship Troopers, and he has starred in over 60 film and television projects, including Sleepy Hollow, Tarzan and The Lost City. The striking couple produced and starred in the Lifetime Television series called I Married a Princess. Together they own Holy Cow Entertainment, a production company and are currently working on a film they wrote and produced titled Royal Exile about Catherine’s Grandfather, H.R.H. Prince Paul of Yugoslavia. Casper and Catherine have been Childhelp supporters and Celebrity Ambassadors for years and they currently live in Malibu with their 5 children. The event featured a Grand Prize drawing for a $2,500 shopping spree at South Coast Plaza and free valet parking for one year. It was won by Colleen Barnes. In appreciation of our major donors to the Fashion Show, a cocktail reception was held on March 1st at the spectacular waterfront home of Robert and Beverly Cohen, in Newport Beach. The Fashion Show committee includes Orange County Chapter President, Pam Pharris, members Nancy Cardin, Jacquie Casey, Patti Edwards, Joy Estrada, Kristin James, Jennifer Kite, Katherine Meredith, Dale San Filippo, Joyce Simon, Michele Terpstra, Gina Van Ocker, Nancy Whitlock, Shan Womack, Leah Carroll, Mary Allyn Dexter, Diana Miner, Debra Violette. Childhelp has brought the light of hope and healing into the lives of countless children for more than 50 years. CEO and Co-Founder Sara O’Meara and President and Co-Founder Yvonne Fedderson started Childhelp in 1959, establishing it as a leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect and at risk children. Childhelp’s approach focuses on advocacy, prevention, treatment and community outreach. For more information visit www.childhelpoc.com. Page 10

CELEBRATE EARTH DAY WITH JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU Guests and local residents are invited to join the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, along with special guest Jean-Michel Cousteau, for an Earth Day Celebration and Beach Clean-Up Saturday, April 21. The Beach Clean Up takes place from 10 a.m. to noon at Salt Creek Beach, located directly in front of the resort. Guests will gather on the resort’s Eco-Quest Game Board where Jean-Michel Cousteau will welcome all participants. California’s beaches accumulate trash and other debris. If these items are not removed, it can be harmful and even fatal to wildlife and become a health hazard. The Earth Day Beach Clean Up will be a fantastic day for neighbors and friends of the resort to come together and take care of the fragile marine environment, while also learning from Jean-Michel Cousteau about just how fragile our beaches and oceans are and how we can become an Ambassador of the Environment. The Earth Day Celebration will bring you in touch with your ocean, your planet and yourself. Jean-Michel Cousteau is an explorer, environmentalist, educator, and film producer. For more than four decades, he has dedicated himself and his vast experience to

communicate to people of all nations and generations his love and concern for our water planet. Since first being “thrown overboard” by his father at the age of seven with newly invented SCUBA gear on his back, he has been exploring the ocean realm. The son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel has investigated the world’s oceans aboard Calypso and Alcyone for much of his life. Honoring his heritage, he founded Ocean Futures Society in 1999 to carry on this pioneering work. The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and Jean-Michel Cousteau partnered to bring eco-adventures through Ambassadors of the Environment that promise to open guest’s eyes to Southern California’s unique ecosystems, and open their heart to their connection to the larger global systems. Led by expert naturalists, choose from 15 different excursions, dedicated to showcasing Southern California’s natural wonders. Throughout these unique eco-tours, the Southern California surroundings become a natural classroom and living laboratory in which adults, families and kids learn while having fun. Through exploration and active study, Ambassadors have meaningful experiences that imbue them with

Jean-Michel Cousteau a deep appreciation and respect for nature, as well as an understanding of how to live more environmentally responsibly. At the heart of these Southern California adventures are four principles: everything is connected; there is no waste in nature; everything

runs on energy; and biodiversity is good. Kids, youth and adult adventures are a discovery experience that transforms the way guests appreciate and value the planet that sustains us.

Bald Eagles Seen In Local Mountains On Saturday March 11th, the fourth bald eagle count of the winter was conducted by local Federal and State biologists and volunteers around lakes in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains. Volunteers enjoyed clear skies and warm temperatures while looking for our magnificent national bird. The count was successful in tallying the bald eagles spending their winter vacations at local lakes. A grand total of 15 eagles (9 adults and 5 juveniles, 1 eaglet) were observed at the lake areas during the 1- hour count. Six eagles (3 adults, 2 juveniles, and 1 eaglet) were observed in the Big Bear/Baldwin Lake area; five eagles (2 adults and 3 juveniles) at Lake Arrowhead/Lake Gregory; 1 adult eagle at Silverwood Lake; and 1 adult eagle was observed at Lake Hemet. While no eagles were observed during the count at Lake Perris, State Park Ecologist Ken Keitzer stated “ the volunteers had a really good time and saw lots of other cool birds.” Volunteers at Diamond Valley Lake, a new census location, observed two adult bald eagles. Juvenile eagles are distinguished by a brown head

and tail; adults are recognized by the famous white head and tail - it takes 4-5 years to acquire full adult coloration. Juvenile eagles are the same size as the adults. Approximately 222 volunteers participated in the 1-hour eagle census (~54 at Big Bear area, 21 at Lake Arrowhead/Lake Gregory, 32 at Lake Hemet, 45 at Silverwood Lake, 60 at Lake Perris, and 10 volunteers at Diamond Valley Lake). The Forest Service and State Recreation Area biologists would like to thank those volunteers for their dedication in getting up early and participating in the eagle census. The success of the eagle counts are entirely dependent on the volunteers! While this was the last census for this season, the Forest Service and California Department of Fish and Game need more volunteers to monitor the nest site at Big Bear Lake and provide the public with opportunities to view the eaglet from a safe distance. The volunteers will be stationed with spotting scopes at Dana Point Park in Fawnskin. “We are working on getting volunteers scheduled to be there at least on the weekends and hopefully on a lot of

weekdays,” said NFA volunteer coordinator Meredith Brandon. People interested in helping monitor the bald eagle nest may contact Meredith Brandon at (909) 382-2842 or mbrandon@nationalforestassociation. org. Finally, District Biologist Robin Eliason will be presenting a talk on bald eagles at 11:00 on March 17th and March 24th at the San Bernardino National Forest Big Bear

Discovery Center. For additional information about the bald eagle nest viewing opportunities, contact the Big Bear Discovery Center (909) 382-2789. For additional information about the San Bernardino National Forest, please visit: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ sbnf

Irish Quotes for St. Patrick’s Day By Kathryn E. Darden Ireland is known for the Blarney Stone and Irish quotes and sayings. Here are some of my favorite quotes from and about the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day. “What’s the use of being Irish if the world doesn’t break your heart?” John Fitzgerald Kennedy

St Patrick - recognized as the patron saint of Ireland St Patrick was a Christian missionary. Two authentic letters from him survive, the only universally accepted details of his life. When he was 16, he was captured in Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland. He escaped, returned home and became a bishop. He later returned to Ireland, but little else is known. By the seventh century, he was credited as the patron saint of Ireland. (flourished 5th century, Britain and Ireland; feast day March 17) patron saint and national apostle of Ireland, credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland and probably responsible in part for the Christianization of the Picts and AngloSaxons. He is known only from two short works, the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Letter to Coroticus, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish Christians. Patrick was born in Britain of a Romanized family. At age 16 he was torn by Irish raiders from the villa of his father, Calpurnius, a deacon and minor local official, and carried into slavery in Ireland, where, during six bleak years spent as a herdsman, he turned with fervour to his faith. Hearing at last in a dream that the ship in which he was to escape was ready, he fled his master and found passage to Britain. There he came near to

starvation and suffered a second brief captivity before he was reunited with his family. Thereafter, he may have paid a short visit to the Continent. The best known passage in the Confessio, his spiritual autobiography, tells of a dream, after his return to Britain, in which one Victoricus delivered him a letter headed “The Voice of the Irish.” As he read it, he seemed to hear a certain company of Irish beseeching him to walk once more among them. “Deeply moved,” he says, “I could read no more.” Nevertheless, because of the shortcomings of his education, he was reluctant for a long time to respond to the call. Even on the eve of reembarkation for Ireland he was beset by doubts of his fitness for the task. Once in the field, however, his hesitations vanished. Utterly confident in the Lord, he journeyed far and wide, baptizing and confirming with untiring zeal. In diplomatic fashion he brought gifts to a kinglet here and a lawgiver there but accepted none from any. On at least one occasion, he was cast into chains. On another, he addressed with lyrical pathos a last farewell to his converts who had been slain or kidnapped by the soldiers of Coroticus. Careful to deal fairly with the nonChristian Irish, he nevertheless lived in constant danger of martyrdom. The evo-

cation of such incidents of what he called his “laborious episcopate” was his reply to a charge, to his great grief endorsed by his ecclesiastical superiors in Britain, that he had originally sought office for the sake of office. In point of fact, he was a most humble-minded man, pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker for having chosen him as the instrument whereby multitudes who had worshipped “idols and unclean things” had become “the people of God.” The phenomenal success of Patrick’s mission is not, however, the full measure of his personality. Since his writings have come to be better understood, it is increasingly recognized that, despite their occasional incoherence, they mirror a truth and a simplicity of the rarest quality. It is not possible to say with any assurance when Patrick was born. There are, however, a number of pointers to his missionary career having lain within the second half of the 5th century. In the Coroticus letter, his mention of the Franks as still “heathen” indicates that the letter must have been written between 451, the date generally accepted as that of the Franks’ irruption into Gaul as far as the Somme River, and 496, when they were baptized en masse. Patrick, who speaks of himself as having evangelized heathen Ireland, is not to be

confused with Palladius, sent by Pope Celestine in 431 as “first bishop to the Irish believers in Christ.” Before the end of the 7th century, Patrick had become a legendary figure, and the legends have continued to grow. One of these would have it that he drove the snakes of Ireland into the sea to their destruction. Another, probably the most popular, is that of the shamrock, which has him explain the concept of the Holy Trinity, three persons in one God, to an unbeliever by showing him the threeleaved plant with one stalk. Today Irishmen wear shamrocks, the national flower of Ireland, in their lapels on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.
