Shining Light In Sunnyside by Sue Baldock

A year ago local artist Mark Salinas volunteered an afternoon to clean up Sunnyside with the Boys & Girls Club. This simple act planted a seed and on June 9th it bloomed into reality. Looking for a creative way to solve the local graffiti problem, Mark launched the idea for a mural to symbolize a new era for our neighborhood, stating “Graffiti is done with a scowl; whereas street art is done with a smile. I wanted to do something for the neighborhood and involve kids so they can take pride as they pass by with their parents and friends.” Sponsored by Gleason Paint Place, Sunnyside Shines BID, Pre-

mier Pain Roller, Elusha Realty, Queens Council on the Arts, NYC Dept of Cultural Affairs and Papa John’s who supplied the painters with pizza; this was a true community event. Mohammed Eid, Manager at Papa John’s shared the reason for their participation is both a love of children and community, “it’s a great day and I wish this could be done all over Queens”. “Anything to deter graffiti and reflect well on our community is a good thing” commented Debbie and Gary Bush as they stopped by to watch. “It’s great to involve the kids and the design is really good” added George Burles. It was all about the kids. “It’s

just amazing! We have approximately 12 kids here from the Torch Club. It’s an incredible statement for them to take ownership of their neighborhood” said Vincent Rende, President of the Board of the Boys & Girls Club. “I feel like I’m part of something big. It’s an awesome mural.” said Gizelle of the Boys & Girls Club. “I love art and it’s great to be part of something for the community” added her friend Andrea. Kenny Medrano, Unit Leader for the club showed his passion for helping people by joining in today. He’s worked at the club for one and a half years and cherishes the ability to empower the kids to become great. (continued on page 5)

Calling For Restoration Of NYC Station Booths On June 6th, CM Van Bramer joined dozens of representatives from the Transport Workers Union Local 100 and elected officials at Steinway Street Station in Astoria for a citywide action to call for the restoration of station booths and station agents in New York City’s subway system.

AN EYE ON GUTHRIE BY DEBRA S. GUTHRIE, M.D.

Hi Dr. Guthrie, I have this bump on my eyelid and it doesn’t want to go away. It just started a few weeks ago. What should I do? Variable bumps on our lids-a real nuisance; sometimes quite painful and occasionally potentially dangerous seem to meander into my office this time of year in great frequency. What often starts as a tender lid often develops into a pea sized nontender bump that just won’t go away. Most of the time the culprit is a chalazion (pronounced kalayzion). We are loaded with oil producing glands along our upper and lower lid margins. These meibomian glands normally produce oils that form the outer layer of the tear film. Basically the oils slow down the evaporation of tears from the surface of our eyes-a good thing. When the glands get clogged a chalazion is born. It is very important to use warm compresses and massage at the start before the bump develops. Prescription drops help as well to cool down the inflammation. Most times it is not an infection, but merely severe inflammation as the backed up oils have nowhere to go so they cause havoc in the adjacent tissues of the eyelid. When the chalazion gets into the nontender “bump” phase the treatment may include a steroid injection, minor surgery or just leaving it be. The bump does sometimes cause blurry vision as it may induce some astigmatism by compression of the cornea. It’s these same glands that cause chronic blepharitis as well. It is important to get chalazia checked out for a few reasons. First, it may be a growth that is not a chalazion. Second, it is important to learn proper lid hygiene so that you may learn how to prevent a recurrence. And most importantly, when you are being examined for this so-called semi emergency other diseases such as glaucoma may be detected in the early phase.

Shining Light In Sunnyside

Mark Salinas joined by the Boys & Girls Club Torch Club members and his friends.

Young and old joined. From little 4 year old Logan with his dad, Mizelle to Gen-X’ers everyone was participating. Helped by his friends Yung-Li Chen, Taj Greenlee, Ben Dierckx, Lucy and step-dad Jeff; Mark set about obtaining donations, designing the wall and getting the building owner to agree to the mural. It was a long time coming, but it is already “shining a light on a common problem”. Instead of ignoring the tagging as most of us do, Mark dug in and set into motion something good. “I love that he sees a need and creates the opportunity to solve it in a positive and surprising way”, said Taj. “Rise and Shine” is a personal slogan for Mark; perhaps now it can be one for the whole community! Special thanks to all the Torch Club kids who came today: Seth, Andrea, Gizelle, Darryl, Stephanie, Michelle, Justin, Jakya, Tenzin and Erick. Great teamwork and painting!

Mizelle and son Logan helping out.

To see the mural, go to 42nd Street and 48th Avenue. To see more of Mark’s work visit www.arrowsup.com

Reginald Tiu (Physical Therapist, Restore Plus and new Chamber Member), Sanja Mylonas (CatsEye Webs, created the new Chamber Web Site), Lily Gavin (Dazies Restaurant), Guest Speaker Josh Springer (NorthSide Web Service) and Laura Helm (Sunnyside Architect).www.sunnyside-chamber.org

The luncheon special guest speaker was the founder of Northside Web Service, Josh Springer, who explained the importance of a business having a web site. Josh explained whether you have a startup company or a large corporation, developing an online presence is a vital component in the marketing process. A website will help you establish your company’s identity online and will give your business the opportunity to grow on a global scale. A wider audience has the potential to generate more sales and make your business more profitable. Josh explained there are billions of searches conducted online each month by consumers searching for products and services. If you don’t have a company website, you risk losing valuable business to your competitors who do. He also explained how having unique contact on both Facebook and Twitter can help your business. We were also delighted to meet Sanja Mylonas of CatsEye Webs who recently created the new Chamber Web Site. We invite all our friends to visit this brand new site!
