Exercise!

By Pete Peterson

You’ve heard the jokes: “Whenever I think about exercising, I lay down until the obsession passes.”

And: “I didn’t make it to the gym yesterday. That makes 5 years in a row.” How about this one:

Senior Citizen: “Doctor, I have to stop exercising.” Doctor: “Why so?”

Senior Citizen: “Because every time I do it, my face gets flushed, my heart beats faster, I sweat profusely and can hardly breathe.”

Funny, right? Lifestyle authorities say joke all you want, but it’s a fact that as we age, our muscle mass begins to decrease. In some of us, this deterioration begins in our thirties; for others it’s the early forties. The fact is, we lose 3-5% of vital muscle mass with each subsequent decade of living. Why is this a bad thing?

Simple. Strong muscles are essential to one’s ability to maintain balance. Plus, bone strength helps with mobility. It’s no surprise that injuries sustained in falls are a major hazard to senior citizens, a leading cause to compromised independence. Inability to remember dates, times and faces, also arise with lack of exercise. The good news is that scientists have found that brain neurons, those special cells that perform the necessary functions to keep us alive and help us think and remember, increase after just a few short weeks of reg-

ular exercise. In fact, some researchers found that when individuals walk at least five blocks three or more times a week, dementia was 35% lower than those seniors who performed no physical activity. Dr. Ben Kaiden of KaiserPermanente says, “The ‘Magic Bullet’ regarding longevity seems to be exercise. A minimum of two and a half hours – ninety minutes each week of moderate activity reduces high blood pressure, strengthens the heart and con-

tributes to a more positive outlook on life, among other desirable benefits.”

Dr. Phen Diep, of the Veteran’s Administration of Escondido office echoes this viewpoint. “As a physician I see a major difference in the quality of life in patients who exercise regularly – their vigor, their problem-solving ability, their overall health – is improved. They have better balance, a steadier gait, and are happier in general. I often ask those who have a regular exercise routine if they’d like to increase their life expectancy by 3 years. Almost invariably they answer yes. I tell them to add a five-minute jog to their routine, either on a tread mill or on grass. They look at me askance, but for those who try it, it works.” Okay, you say, I’m convinced. The question is how often should I exercise? And what should I do? Good questions. In this article we’ll share guidelines – gleaned from experts – and dispel myths and misinformation regarding the vital subject of senior exercise. We’ll also present some of the more important latest findings on this ever-changing topic. Let’s start with the basics. Basically there are 4 ways to exercise: endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility. Most people tend to focus on one activity or type of

exercise and think they’re doing enough. Each type is different, though. Doing them all will give you more benefits. Mixing it up also helps to reduce boredom and cut your risk of injury.

Some activities fit into more than one category. For example, many endurance activities also build strength. Strength exercises can also help improve balance. Endurance Endurance, or aerobic, activities increase your breathing and heart rate, keeping your heart, lungs, and circulatory system healthy while improving overall fitness. Building endurance makes it easier to carry out many of everyday activities. Endurance exercises include:  Brisk walking or jogging  Yard work (mowing, raking, digging)  Dancing

Strength Strength exercises make your muscles stronger. They help you carry out everyday activities, such as stair climbing and carrying in groceries. These exercises also are called “strength training” or “resistance training,” and include:  Lifting weights  Using resistance bands  Using your own body weight Balance Balance exercises help prevent falls, a common problem in older adults.

The bull started to service the cows within two days, all my cows. He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the vet gave him...but they kind of taste like peppermint. •••• A True Story. Honest!

A Jewish lady's grandson is playing in the water, she is standing on the beach not wanting to get her feet wet, when all of a sudden, a huge wave appears from nowhere and crashes directly over the spot where the boy is wading.

Being flexible gives you more freedom of movement for other exercises as well as for your everyday activities, including driving, bathing, showering or getting dressed. Flexibility exercises include: Shoulder and upper arm stretch Calf stretch Yoga

There are no standard exercise recommendations. Do what fits you and your lifestyle best. The next question is how often should you exercise? Let’s start with the American Heart Association’s recommendations. “To promote and maintain health, older adults should participate in moderate-intensity aerobic activity for at least thirty minutes, 5 days a week, or vigorous-intensity aerobic activity for at least twenty minutes 3 days of the week; this totals 150 minutes, or 2 ½ hours of moderate exercise, or 1 hour of vigorous training a week. Their website adds: The number of older Americans is expected to double from thirty-five to seventy million over the next twenty-five years. By the year 2030, twenty percent of the U.S. population will be sixty-

A few minutes later another huge wave appears out of nowhere and crashes on the beach. As the water recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling, splashing around as if nothing had ever happened. The loud voice booms again "I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?"

She responds, "He had a hat!" •••• Those wonderful Church Bulletins! Thank God for church ladies with typewriters.

five and older. Lack of physical activity contributes to many of the chronic diseases that occur in older adults, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes mellitus, lung disease, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure and cancer. Lack of physical activity, combined with poor dietary habits, also contributes to increased obesity in this population segment.

The terrible part of being out of shape is that it happens in such subtle ways. In January 2019, Foster Philby’s wife suggested they participate in the New York Times Physical Challenge. One exercise in this program was a pushup performed from a kneeling position. A former Marine who hit the gym 3 or 4 days a week, Philby laughed at this. He’d knock that exercise for a loop. To his dismay, he could barely do ten such pushups before collapsing. Embarrassed, he upped his game. Before the challenge ended, he could do twenty iterations at a time. Today, he regularly does forty such exercises 5 times a week. The persistent pain in his shoulders that bothered him for years has disappeared, proving again that the body responds when challenged. Not all of us can be like Nora Haefele that Ragan Chastain, a contributing writer for several fitness magazines, reports on.

says, “I'm fat and have physical limitations.” In December 2019, at age 62, Haefele completed her hundredth half-marathon finishing a quest she started at age 55.

This past summer she attempted her first 50k (31 miles) race and finished, though well back in the pack. No, she didn’t participate in sports growing up. “There was no emphasis on girls’ sports when I was in school,” she explains. “Girls were cheerleaders and that's about it. I wasn't the cheerleader type.”

Fitness Walking But Haefele always loved the outdoors, and she liked to set and achieve goals. In 1999, she started non-competitive fitness walking. In 2011 she moved to Pennsylvania and learned of the Schuylkill River Sojourn, a 7-day, 112-mile paddling trip. In June 2012, she rented a kayak and with no paddling experience, completed the course. She went on to paddle the Delaware and Susquehanna rivers – and even a glacial lake in Switzerland. The same year she moved to Pennsylvania, Haefele completed her first 5k and shortly after completed a half-marathon. Her accomplishments speak for themselves. In addition to her 100-plus halfmarathons, she’s completed two half-marathons in two consecutive days, and she has done four half-

Museum Alters Hours, Historic Tour Cancelled - The Valley Center History Museum, which has closed indefinitely due to the health crisis, continues to provide local historical data to researchers, students, and families seeking ancestral data who make inquiries via email or telephone. A volunteer is on site to monitor calls and messages and is prepared to research data and respond. In the meantime, an April tour of historic Rancho Guejito was cancelled. The tour, open to members of the Valley Center History Museum and Historical Society, may be

“When I decided to do my 75th half-marathon at a small race in Waterbury, CT, called ‘Oh Boy,’ I let the race director know. I was shocked and touched when she gave me bib #75 and presented me with a trophy commemorating my 75th half-marathon.” Another director presented her with the “Heart and Hustle” award at her 69th half-marathon and gave her a trophy at her 92nd race.

Key Benefits of Exercise for Seniors Haefele is a prime example of how seniors can compete, or at least participate, in exercise programs once considered too tough for them. And regardless of what regimen you decide on, you will gain certain key benefits from your routine, including: • Improved healing and function – Regular exercise may decrease the time it takes for a wound to heal by 25%. Also, a healthy, strong body can better fight off infection and make recovery from illness or injury easier. • Prevention of disease or chronic conditions – According to the National Institute of Aging, exercising as a senior may delay or even prevent diseases like diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart disease and osteoporosis from occurring. • Increased balance and stability – As noted falls are the number one cause of injury among seniors; regular exercise can help pre-

rescheduled this Fall. Members have been notified of the cancellation and told that they will receive updated information as available. Persons who are not members but may be interesting in a tour of the historic property can contact the museum for membership information.

Guejito is the last remaining original Mexican land grant rancho in California. A spokesman for the museum, which regularly offers bus tours of historic sites and visits to local historic properties, said the rancho was the most requested tour since the visits began in the 1980s. To contact the museum, an email can be sent to museum@vchistory.org and telephone inquiries are accepted at (760) 749-2993. Museum staff is also available by visiting vchistory.org and clicking the contact button.

Escondido Library Update - In an ongoing effort to protect the health and safety of our staff and community, the Escondido Public Library will be closed to the public through March 31, 2020. All materials with a due date during the closure period are now due April 1, and no overdue fees will be accrued during the closure. All active holds that are ready for pickup have been suspended until April 1. All materials including media items can be returned to the drive up book drops in the Library parking lot 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish the best for our patrons during this difficult time.

MainStreet Oceanside Events Update In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we have canceled our second Community Mosaic Building Workshop on April 4 and our returning spring tasting event, Mother’s Day Is Sweet, on May 9. We have also canceled our monthly MainStreet Oceanside committee meetings. The Oceanside Morning Farmers Market and Oceanside Sunset Market will remain closed until further notice. In the meantime, we hope you will continue supporting your Downtown Oceanside businesses in ways that eliminate or significantly

vent them. Falling often leads to injuries like broken hips or other bones, bruises and sprains. Exercise is a key component to improve functional reach and balance. Improved quality of life and • increased life expectancy – New studies have found that seniors who exercise regularly improve not only their physical fitness but experience psychological benefits as well. Exercise can alleviate depression and improve one’s mood in general. The increased mobility that comes from regular, moderate exercise can help a senior maintain his or her independence, if the program is long-term and consistent.

It is never too late for seniors to start engaging in a regular exercise routine. The key is to find something you enjoy doing and start at a level that is easy to maintain.

Exercise is also a key for cognitive function. Scientists have found that brain neurons- the special cells that perform all the necessary function to keep you alive, as well as help you think and improve your memory- all increase after a few weeks of regular exercise. In fact, some researchers found that when individuals walk three or more times a week, the occurrence of dementia was 35% lower than those seniors who were not involved in any type of physical activity.

The National Academy of Science lists several myth-breaking ideas about senior citizen exercise. First,

reduce your exposure risk, such as ordering delivery from downtown restaurants and coffee shops, ordering online from local shops, purchasing gift cards for future use and making donations to local museums and theaters, including donations in lieu of ticket refunds. As of March 17, under the Order of the Health Officer and Emergency Regulations, restaurants can remain open only for delivery or drive-thru. We have compiled a list of Downtown Oceanside restaurants open at oceansidetogo.com. If you would like to be included in the Oceanside To-Go restaurant list, please send your information to Kristin at kristin@mainstreetoceanside.com. All restaurants and other businesses that serve food have been required to close on-site dining. All bars and adult entertainment establishments that serve food without a full kitchen have been ordered to close. Restaurants with excess food can partner with the North County Food Bank and San Diego Food Bank to avoid food waste. To arrange a donation pick-up or drop off, contact Kimberly Castillo at kcastillo@sandiegofoodbank.org or call her at (858) 863-5133. San Diego Botanic Garden Closed - Due to the current public health emergency related to Coronavirus, the San Diego Botanic Garden is closed to all visitors, members and volunteers until further notice. At this time, the best way we can serve the community is by aiding our societal response to increase social distancing and slow the progression of the virus. In order to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our visitors, volunteers and staff, we are taking the following steps immediately: The Garden is closed until further notice. All events, classes and public gatherings are cancelled through April 30th. All volunteer activities will be suspended until further notice. As always, maintenance of our world-class plant collection remains a top priority. We will continue to care for our 5,000+

both male and female can benefit from regular physical activity; the activity need not be strenuous to achieve health benefits. Significant health benefits can be achieved with a moderate amount of physical activity, preferably daily. Slow or moderate walking is better than no activity; shorter sessions of more vigorous activities, fast walking or stair climbing will bring about greater benefits more quickly. Additional health benefits can be gained through greater amounts of physical activity, either by increasing the duration, intensity, or frequency. Because risk of injury increases at high levels of physical activity, care should be taken not to engage in excessive amounts of activity. Previously sedentary older adults who begin physical activity programs should start with short intervals of moderate physical activity usually 5 or 10 minutes in duration and gradually build up to the desired amount. Older adults should consult with a physician before beginning a new physical activity program. Cardio training (getting the heart pumping) and weight resistance activities should be combined in one session to gain the most benefits.

The statistics concerning senior fitness is not good; inactivity increas-

49 victims scammed over a fiveyear period, 31 victims were seniors

Former life insurance agent Christopher Dougherty, 47, pleaded guilty to three counts of securities fraud, three counts of grand theft, and a sentencing enhancement after running a $6 million Ponzi scheme that scammed 49 victims -- 31 of whom were 65 years or older at the time of the fraudulent investments. Dougherty agreed to a 12-year state prison sentence, and sentencing is set for April 24, 2020. Dougherty has been in custody with a $5 million bail since his arrest in April 2019.

“Dougherty ruthlessly took advantage of his clients’ trust in order to steal their life savings, causing unfathomable harm,” said Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara. “Thanks to the great work by Department of Insurance investigators and the San Diego District Attorney's Office, his conviction will bring some level of justice to victims and their families.” Dougherty offered private investments in various companies he owned. One of the investment opportunities Dougherty pitched was a 100-acre “organic” cattle ranch in Alpine. While the farm was real, it did not actually generate profits for investors. Dougherty

also promoted a marijuana growing project on the Alpine property.

Dougherty shuffled money around in classic Ponzi fashion, paying “profits” to investors with funds received from recent investors. In addition, Dougherty used investor funds for personal expenses, including home remodeling, travel, college tuition, and large cash withdrawals. The Ponzi scheme collapsed when investors began to demand their money and Dougherty could not pay it back.

Investigators identified many of the investors when Dougherty filed bankruptcy in federal court in October 2018, but found additional victims when investigators began looking more closely at Dougherty’s financial records. Some of the victims met Dougherty when various San Diego and Imperial County school districts designated him as an investment advisor for employees. Other victims met Dougherty through his current clients. Dougherty leveraged a reservoir of trust he had developed with long-standing clients, convincing them to cash out established, conventional investments and move their money to his fraudulent investments. This case was investigated by a task force comprised of members from the California Department of Insurance, the California Department of Business Oversight, and the San Diego Sheriff’s

World Record Holder Most senior citizens are not as motivated as former Carlsbad resident, George Hood, who recently set the Guinness world record for planking – 8 hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds. Planking is where the participant stretches out, with just their forearms and toes resting on the floor, with no other body part touching the surface.

The sixty-two year who now lives in Naperville, Illinois, didn’t look at the clock or the time displayed on his phone as he performed his record setting feat. He had only periodic sips of water and ate only a few pieces of turkey jerky during his planking time. “A lot of my peers in my age group use the excuse, ‘Oh, I’m too old,’ he told the Washington Post. “I’m out to change that. I’m in the best shape of my life, and that’s how everybody should feel, regardless of age.” This comes from a former Marine and Drug Enforcement Administration officer who has long been used to intense physical activity. (He gave a demonstration of planking at the USS Midway in

As Minority Leader, I have been work-

ing with the Governor to coordinate the state’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. A number of important steps are underway. Last week we passed bi-partisan legislation to provide $500 million in initial emergency funding expandable to $1 billion, to activate closed hospitals, increase equipment capacity for existing hospitals, provide hotel beds for the homeless, clean up child care facilities, fund In-Home Supportive Services addressing senior isolation, backfill schools for lost Average Daily Attendance, finance expanded family leave, reimburse for the cost of COVID-19 testing, and much more.

Other steps include a DMV request that law enforcement use discretion for 60 days regarding driver’s license and vehicle registrations that expired on or after March 16. This will protect the health of individuals over 70 who are required to visit a DMV to take written or vision tests.

You can gain the many benefits of an exercise program without becoming a fanatic. Surely, you’ve heard the Letty Parsons story.

Letty was 67, a resident of a nursing home, suffering from painful arthritis. She spent most of her days in a wheelchair, longing to be outside. With the help of a staff member, one day Letty took a few tentative steps to a sunny bench near the facility’s fountain. Surprised at feeling less pain, the aide at her side, she walked to the length of the garden and back. Next, she walking around the block, and eventually recorded a mile. This achievement whetted her appetite for more. Within three months she was jogging, at first two blocks, then a half mile: competing in a half-marathon shortly. Her wheelchair?

cles is a major problem of most seniors,” says Brandon Bates, Personal Training Director of L A Fitness in 4-S Ranch. A 26-year veteran of the fitness industry, Bates has worked with literally thousands of seniors over the years, to design effective, safe exercise programs for older men and women.

“Most seniors limit their exercise programs because they limit their thinking – they feel they can’t do a particular exercise, hence they refuse to try. In truth most of us can do much more than we realize. We’ve learned to live with our limitations so long we start to believe in them. True, a senior citizen male is probably not going to run with the blazing speed of his youth, but he can still use the treadmill to gain greater mobility, lose weight and gain protection against falls and other injuries.” After you have your doctor’s approval of course, Bates emphasizes an integrated fitness program of strength training, balance, endurance and flexibility is best. “Bone strength is the key to better mobility; an integrated fitness program builds bone density and often limits or reduces the effects of diabetes, anxiety and depression. This can improve one’s feeling of wellbeing, and lead to less pain in the case of arthritis or bone calcification.” Bates points out the importance of a consistent program. “Most seniors should start slow – use a two-or

five-pound weight at first – do five repetitions instead of fifty – add a little weight and more reps each week. Begin with three gym visits of 45 minutes or an hour per week. If your routine makes you sore, tell a trainer. You may have over done it. Often a trainer may have a tip or two to help you recover more quickly after each session.” Bates acknowledges that soreness at the start of a program is the leading reason participants quit exercising. “That’s why recovery tips are so important. Still, one has to start somewhere.” He smiles, showing off beautiful white teeth. “It’s usually best to start at the beginning.” He laughs. “Once started on a project, most of us usually continue. I suggest newcomers try for 2 or 3 times a week for 3 weeks. If they don’t feel better, if they don’t move better, if they don’t look better, I’ll apologize and never bother them again.” Again he smiles. Somehow, I’ll bet he’s not so quick to stop a project.

Bates, with his positive attitude and deep knowledge of how the body moves and works, states recent research in senior fitness is changing the industry. “We are just now learning the value of lateral movement in exercise. New programs emphasize the use of stretch bands to give added resistance when moving to the right or left. Verbal responses, such as encouraging

We truly are living through a historic time. Usually, our weekly opeds are on the latest developments at the County of San Diego, or a helpful tip on solving a problem, but given this difficult time, none of that seemed appropriate.

Giving an update on the Coronavirus seems outdated the second I type the next word, however I wanted to speak generally on all that we are doing at the County of San Diego. The County of San Diego is the Health and Human Services provider for the entire region. The Board of Supervisors along with our medical experts are the ones making the calls for the over 3.3 million people in San Diego County. Along with working with our state and federal partners, it’s up to the County on how to attack the Coronavirus. While there have been some drastic measures over the last week, all of this was done out of abundance of caution. We’ve heard from many constituents, ‘Why close all of these institutions, when only a couple dozen people are sick?’ The answer is simple, we must overprepare. None of these decisions have been made lightly. We all understand the gravity of the situation and the effect it will have on businesses moving forward. These decisions were made in accordance with our medical experts who have studied

the viruses spread across the world.

While the situation is very fluid, this much is clear. Those 65 and over, or with a compromised immune system are strongly urged to self-quarantine for the time being. In the meantime, follow my pages on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest news regarding the Coronavirus. Together, with everyone on board we can get through this!

Palomar Health Foundation, COVID-19 Update - There’s no getting around the fact that these are challenging times. In the week since you last heard from us, the coronavirus has impacted nearly every person in our country and millions more around the world, in terms of the way we live, work and care for ourselves and loved ones. Despite the many changes we are all facing, at Palomar Health our commitment to you is constant. We are closely monitoring COVID19 in our community and taking every step possible to minimize its spread. We are also carefully evaluating the readiness of our facilities, equipment and personnel. Here are some of the steps we are taking as we remain focused on our #1 priority: the health and safety of our patients, visitors, employees, and the public. Central Command Center - A new command center has been established to give leaders a central place to receive accurate and current information during this rapidly changing situation. Representatives from our Employee Health and Human Resources departments are monitoring the situation and providing quick response to support our staff and patients. Visitation - Our visitation policy has changed. To minimize exposure to coronavirus, we are only allowing visits to endof-life patients and obstetrics patients. Visits to end-of-life patients will be handled on a case-by-case basis. For obstetrics patients, only partners may visit at this time. The visitor must be feeling well, exhibit no signs of sickness and be at least 18 years of age. All other visitors must wait outside the hospital.

Non-Essential Surgeries Since Wednesday, March 18, Palomar Health has been deferring non-essential surgeries at both Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway. Classification as an essential or non-essential surgery will be determined on a caseby-case basis by the physician and patient. Rescheduling non-essential surgeries to a later date frees up hospital rooms and resources that can be reserved for emergency use. Telecommuting - Palomar Health has asked many non-clinical team members, including our Foundation staff, to work remotely during this time. This policy will not impact patient care. No matter where our employees are located, they are hard at work and available to help you. Sanitation - High-touch surfaces in all public areas are being sanitized continually throughout the day. That includes door handles, elevator buttons, handrails, vending machines and other areas.

COVID19 Testing - Test kits for the public are not currently available for sale at the hospital, online or any other known place in the community. To be tested for coronavirus, you must have symptoms: a fever, cough and/or respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath. If you do not have symptoms, you will not be tested. Help us spread the word: unless it is an emergency, those who suspect they have been exposed to coronavirus should contact their primary care physician rather than report to an emergency room. Our community is responding with the strength and discipline that it will take to overcome this crisis. On behalf of our dedicated staff, we pledge to be uncompromising partners in our commitment to your best health. We value your opinion. Please call us at (760) 739-2787 or email us at giving@palomarhealth.org with any comments or questions.

responses, such as encouraging yells also seem to produce desired results more quickly.” Billy Blanks, creator of the Taebo exercise routine and his studio, recently introduced a program where participants do side steps while performing one arm lifts with a kittle bell and shouting out the answers to a simple math or logic problems. Incorporating mental aspects physical components seems to produce long-lasting results more quickly.

Bates says, “Most seniors need to break the pattern of inactivity, the negative thinking and inertia that many often slip into without realizing it. A balanced, integrated program offsets this by producing benefits quickly, so the participant looks forward to each session and thus makes exercise part of their lifestyle.” Financial planner, former Marine jet pilot and Escondido resident, Dale Cors, is a strong believer in exercise as a lifestyle. A much in demand knuckle ball pitcher in his youth, he’s at the gym regularly. His routine highlights flexibility, endurance, strength training and mobility. Why does he exercise so regularly? “To feel better and to do better.”

Blanche Avery is a recent convert to exercise. “I started because I heard exercise would help me sleep better. Two weeks, I realized that was the case. I come 4 or 5 times a week now, usually doing cardiac and resistance training.”

John Estes is a gym regular, but he hesitates to call himself a gym rat. “I’m just someone who works out regularly. Does it help me sleep better? I think so. Do I feel better? I guess. I just know I enjoy exercising and like the people I meet.” Why does Ramon Sanchez hit the gym 4 or 5 times a week? “I was 63 and going up one flight of steps caused me to pant and my knees to hurt. I want to go fish in Mexico one more time. Wading in the river and walking the bank searching for the “Big One’ takes energy, so I started exercising.”

He rides the stationary bike and does weight lifting 3 times a week. All this sounds great, so how do I start?

A cursory reading of two local newspapers had ads for nine exercise programs. A thirty second on line search revealed Zumba, Pilates, Body Pump. Spin, Taekwondo, Disc golf, Basketball golf, Pickle Ball, and coed softball. Want more options? There are two senior baseball leagues in the county, both looking for great players like you. Hikes at Daley Ranch range from moderate to strenuous, dancing classes abound, the YMCA offers swimming and aerobics, and Silver Sneakers enrollment is often

paid for by your insurance company and is highly successful.

As in most cases, it is up to you. The important thing is to get off your fatty acids and get active. Do one push up today. (I double dog dare you!) Tomorrow do two. Before you know it, you’ll feel better, look better, sleep better and act younger. Worth a try, correct?

Spanish flu: Pandemic of 1918-20

The 1918-20 influenza pandemic, more commonly known as the “Spanish Flu,” lasted from January 1918 to December 1920, greatly exacerbated by World War I. The pandemic infected as many as 500 million people around the world, or about 27 percent of the then world population of between 1.8 and 1.9 billion. It knew no boundaries. The infection even spread to relatively isolated people on Pacific islands and in the Arctic.

Camp Funston, Kansas

The world death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million, making it one of the deadliest epidemics in human history.

The strain that caused the Spanish Flu, officially known as H1N1, caused two pandemics: the Spanish Flu in 191820, and the second in 2009. That was known as the “Swine Flu.”

The “Spanish Flu” was believed to have been started early 1918, in one of three locations: northern China, England, but most likely in Kansas. Symptoms were misdiagnosed as dengue, cholera, or typhoid.

The disease was first observed in Haskell County, Kansas by a local doctor who warned the U.S. Public Health Service. On March 4, 1918, an army cook reported sick at Fort Riley, Kansas making him the first “recorded” U.S. victim of the flu. Within days, 522 soldiers had reported sick. By March 11, 1918, the virus had reached as far as Queens, New York. Failure to take preventive measures likely added to the problem.

To maintain morale during the waning days of World War I, military censors minimized early reports of illness and mortality in the four primary nations, Britain, France, the U.S., and Germany. The severity of the influenza was suppressed in those four nations, but news reports outside were free to report the epidemic's effects, particularly in neutral Spain. The Spanish news reports created a false impression it was there where the disease began, hence the moniker “Spanish Flu.” A 2007 analysis of the 1918-20 period

found the viral infection was no more aggressive than previous influenza strains. However, WWI conditions included malnourish, overcrowded medical camps and hospitals, along with poor hygiene promoted bacterial “superinfections.” The Conclusion: a superinfection killed most of the victims because of those above conditions. The same H1N1strain of the 2009 “Swine Flu” pandemic killed approximately 17,000, far less number because those unsanitary conditions of WWI had been eliminated.

When one considers the toll a pandemic such as the current Coronavirus threatens to be, the fears are well understood. Estimates of those dying during the Spanish Flu pandemic vary. An estimate from a 1991 study says the Spanish Flu killed 25 to 39 million people. However, a 2005 estimate put the death toll at probably 50 million, less than 3 percent of the 1918-20 global population and possibly as high as 100 million, more than 5 percent of the population. With the Spanish Flu, about 28 percent of the U.S. population of 105 million became infected, and 500,000 to 675,000 died, possibly more than all the wars the U.S. has participated in since 1776. Native American tribes were particularly hard hit. In the Four Corners area (New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah), there were 3,293 registered deaths among Native Americans. Entire Inuit and Alaskan Native village communities died in Alaska. In Canada, 50,000 died.

To put it in perspective, the Spanish Flu killed more people in 24 weeks than HIV/AIDS killed in 24 years. It killed in every area of the globe. As many as 17 million people died in India alone - about 5 percent of that nation’s population at that time. The Spanish Flu mostly killed young adults. In 1918 and 1919, some 99 percent of pandemic influenza deaths in the U.S., occurred in people under 65, and nearly half of that number in young adults 20 to 40 years old. After the lethal second wave struck in late 1918, between October and November for example, 4,597 people died in Philadelphia during the weeks between October and November. Influenza had almost disappeared from that city. One explanation for the rapid decline of the lethality is that doctors got better at preventing and treating the pneumonia that developed after the victims had contracted the virus.

Regarding global economic effects in 1918-20, many businesses in the entertainment and service industries suffered losses in revenue, while the healthcare industry reported profit gains. Present-day events of the Coronavirus (CONVID-19) appear to be having the same effect on today’s society. The current administration is proposing billions of dollars to help stem the tide for both industry and the population. At this time, however, no monetary amount has been settled upon. It brings to mind what the late U.S. Senator Everett Dirksen, (R-Ill) once observed, “… you take a billion here … a billion there and pretty soon you’re talking about some serious money.” 0 Hunker down in your foxholes and stay healthy!

Damn right we’re still here!

Why are we still coming in to work every day instead of staying home like good septuagenarians? Because most of you are staying home and many of you need our help to stay connected. Whether what we do is considered an “essential service” might be debatable at some level but as Nome points out, as an independent computer store, we should at least qualify for Federal protection under the “Endangered Species Act.” Whatever the technical reason for staying open we are doing it because we’re the only local source of help for

To combat the spread of Covid19, governments at all levels have reacted with regulations and advisories. Some of us are being required to work from home. Others are forced to stay home as our jobs and schools have been shuttered. Smart phones, TV sets and computers have become our lifelines to the outside world. The sudden demand for Windows10 notebook desktop and All-in-one PCs emptied retail stores even before they were forced to close. With continuing demand for all types of Windows PCs, we (The Computer Factory) have become one of the only sources for PCs as well as for upgrade and repair service. To accommodate the high demand we have built our inventory of new, refurbs and used PCs to over 50 units. Our supply chains are still open so we see no immediate problem with being able to service local demand. We still design and build high-end, special applications custom desktop PCs for gaming, design video editing etc, but the “enterprise refurbs” that we stock cover the entire range from basic workstations under $300, to power systems with high end i7 CPUs, large SSDs and up to 64GB of RAM.

Hankster is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 1 year old, 41 pound, male, German Shepherd / Hound mix.

Hankster was very shy when he was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS) program. Now he has lots of interaction with the care providers and volunteers and he’s more outgoing every day.

The $145 adoption fee for Hankster includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and registered microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

Princess is a gorgeous 9-years-young Abyssinian-mix kitty who is as sweet as she is striking! Princess needs a new home as her previous owners could no longer care for her. Shy and scared at first, she has become more comfortable now that she’s feeling better and we’ve seen her open up to show a gentle, affectionate nature! Princess loves to lounge in her cat tree and “make muffins” for all the kingdom to see, all while delighting your ears with a most regal purr. Princess has history of living well with a male cat companion, and was also around dogs which she adjusted to over time. Her (waived) adoption fee includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst. Princess is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus at 572 Airport Road. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.

AIO to have the Win10 upgrade done now, before Microsoft starts charging for the license. Today the upgrade to Win10 can often be done for simply a $120 labor charge.

Life brings abrupt changes (you may have a list), but seldom on such a large scale. Usually there is someone to jump on a plane full of supplies to go and help. Now, as one pastor said, “This is something completely new.”

Another wrote, “Today, I officially closed the church.” A colleague responded, “We lock up the building, we do not lock up the church.” \ The writer of Hebrews told the church not to forsake “assembling together” so that we may encourage each other. Right now your pastor is struggling with what those statements mean. Because we are “people persons” and, by nature, helpers and problem solvers. With the buildings locked, or at least closed, pastors are scrambling to find ways to preserve, in one form or another, “assembling

I’m confident that the author of Hebrews didn’t imagine all the ways we can “assemble together” in 2020. He did know that it was important to be together and that the church is, in its purest form, the people.

This morning I listened to the Chamber Singers from Chino Hills High School sing one song from their cancelled concert. Each of the 19 singers sang their part from their home and, through technology, the voices were blended into a beautiful acapella version of “Someday over the Rainbow.” They found a way to “assemble together.” All over town and on social media, I’m seeing the motto, “We are in this together.” Indeed, we are. More than ever.

But we are not alone. Emmanuel, God is with us. As pastors continue to serve their congregations by telephone, mail or text message, live stream or video postings, however, let us give ourselves to “assembling” and to encouraging. We are in this together.

COVID-19; Update to Shelter Operations - Dear Friends of the Animals, on Thursday night Governor Newsom issued a statewide Stay at Home order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This has led to questions about what will happen to the animals in our care, as well as what you can still do with your pets. Rest assured that San Diego Humane Society will continue to be here for both companion and wild animals throughout San Diego County. As for your pets, you can still take your dogs for a walk, you’ll have access to veterinary care and pet supply stores can remain open. For many, it’s a great time to appreciate the joy and unconditional love that animals bring to our lives. Due to the Governor’s order, and to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and guests, we’ve temporarily suspended the following services: Community Spay/Neuter, public vaccine and microchip clinics, and in-person licensing (licensing is still available online). Other than that, we’re available for any emergency need you have with your pets as well as the following essential services — just call us at 619-299-7012:

Adoptions: We’ve moved our adoptions process to appointment only. This will help ensure we can limit the number of visitors in the shelter, but still provide opportunities for pets to find new homes. If you have an existing appointment, it will be honored. If you would like to schedule an appointment to adopt an animal, please call us. The flow of animals into shelters will not slow due to COVID-19, so we'll continue providing adoption services in this way.

March 26, 2020

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones

Food To Go or Delivered - Still Available!

Restaurants are now closed but food to go or delivered is still available.

These are unprecedented times, wash your hands and please stay home if you aren’t feeling well, but call on a neighbor or friend if you need help.

These are the times that we come together and thrive, remember we are Americans and Community is who we are. If you are healthy and not a high risk population (have underlying health issues or are over 60) use caution but make choices for your family that fit your life best. I’m going to continue, for the time being, to frequent local businesses by eating out and trying to maintain sense of community, this may not be right for you but make these decisions based on facts you find on the county website, not rumor.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,

During this time of uncertainty. I would ask you to remember three things.

First, the city website is the best source of information. We have a great staff working this crisis for you. While I know people want to be helpful, there is some misinformation going around. Please check with the City of Escondido website for the latest guidance or send me an email. I will answer it. Second, I realize that uncertainty can cause fear. And fear brings panic. We need to remember we are not the first generation to go through something like this and we will survive. During my Marine Corps days, I was engaged in numerous disaster operations. The worst thing one can do is overreact or panic. As the old sign says, stay calm and carry on.

Third, think about what we want to say about ourselves at the end of this crisis. Did we act as a community of faith and values as I think we are. Let’s make sure we are proud of how we conducted ourselves when this is all over. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Social Butterfly Cont. from Page 9

great time to foster one! We’re now working through our current foster list but will surely need more soon. You can sign up to be added to the foster list here. Lost & Found: We’re still taking in and caring for stray animals, but if you’ve found a pet you can temporarily care for, we’ll help reunite the animal and owner without you having to come to the shelter. If you’ve lost an animal, rest assured that we’re here to help you find your pet.

Owner Surrenders: We never turn an animal away. However, if it’s possible, we’re asking anyone who can delay relinquishing their pet to consider doing so. Here’s helpful information about how to rehome your pet. If you need to relinquish your pet immediately, you can do so by appointment.

Humane Law Enforcement: Our officers are still working every day to protect animals and our community by responding to emergency calls. If you need us, we’ll be there. PAWS Services: We’re here for anyone who needs help for their pets, including rescue groups. We’ve begun distributing 70,000 pounds of pet food to those in need. Anyone can visit any of our locations

between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to pick up a bag of dog or cat food, as well as other supplies, such as cat litter, pet treats and pet beds while supplies last. Additionally, we’re out on the streets providing pet food to homeless families and will continue to provide veterinary vouchers to ensure pet owners have access to care. We’ve also partnered with the San Diego Food Bank and other organizations so they can distribute pet food to their clients. We know there are incredible needs for both people and animals at this time, and we’re pleased to collaborate with such incredible partners to help meet them.

This is a whole new world and we’re in this together! In addition to the help we’re providing our community, we’re looking for ways to bring you joy in these difficult times through our Instagram and Facebook platforms. If you haven’t tuned into our Humane at Home series or entered your pet in March Meowness, I encourage you to do so and hope these bring a smile to your face. These are hard times for sure, but it’s because of friends like you that we’re here for animals in both good times and bad. Thank you for sharing our passion for animals and for partnering with us to Inspire Compassion.

Honor Flight San Diego - Honor Flight San Diego and the Honor Flight Network have been closely following the CDC guidance and the rapidly changing coronavirus

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Top Priority is Health & Well-Be ing During COVID -19 Crisis The top priority for the City of Vista is the health and well-being of our community. The City is closely monitoring the COVID-19 spread and is working with County health officials while following restrictions placed by the Federal, State, and County officials put in place to reduce the spread of the virus. This means we have cancelled all of our events and recreation, preschool, and senior classes, programs, and activities. We will continue to update our City website, ealerts and social media on what the City is doing to protect our community. To provide maximum flexibility and resources to respond to COVID-19, the City proclaimed a State of Emergency. This follows the State and County’s declarations. In this time of uncertainty, it is important that we remember our community’s values of providing a welcoming, safe and inclusive community. We are all in this together and we have a role to play. The most important thing community members can do right now is to heed public health recommendations and take specific actions to reduce the spread of the virus. Get the facts from the federal, state and local official health experts. Links to these sites are on our City website at CityofVista.com. Stay informed and stay healthy. Oceanside - Mayor Peter Weiss

The City of Oceanside broke ground on Pure Water Oceanside, a project that will purify recycled water to create a new local source of high-quality drinking water that is clean, safe, drought-proof, and environmentally sound. Scheduled to be completed before the end of 2021, Pure Water Oceanside will be the first operating advanced water purification facility in San Diego County.

Pure Water Oceanside will address a variety of challenges currently faced by the City. Today, Oceanside imports most of its water from the Sacramento Bay Delta and the Colorado River, which are hundreds of miles away. This imported water is subject to rising costs out of the City’s control, requires an enormous amount of energy to transport, and is vulnerable to natural disasters and earthquakes. Pure Water Oceanside will address these challenges by diversifying the City’s water supply and reducing its reliance on imported water by over 30%.

situation. Due to coronavirus concerns, we made the decision to postpone our upcoming flight to Washington, D.C. Even though the trip was scheduled for May 2020, we could not allow our precious elderly veterans to go on the three-day trip. The decision was not made lightly. Our #1 priority is the health and safety of our veterans, their guardians, and everyone who supports Honor Flight San Diego. While we feel the urgency to get our veterans on their Honor Flight, our WWII and Korean War veterans are over the age of 80 and their demographic makes them more susceptible to infectious disease. We are working with the airlines and hotels to find another weekend later this summer to reschedule our May flight. Our previously scheduled trip for October 2-4, 2020 remains unchanged. Additionally, we are very concerned about the 1,400 San Diego County veterans who have already flown with us, and those on our waiting list who had hoped to go on the May trip. I encourage each of our former guardians to reach out to their veteran with a phone call to check on them. We have healthy prior guardians willing to once again "guard" our veterans during this evolving time if necessary. Please check on your veterans and your elderly neighbors, and if you are able, offer assistance by delivering grocery or pharmacy needs. Even a phone call can help ease the social isolation necessitated by the current coronavirus spread. If you find during your calls that a veteran needs help, or if you (the veteran) are reading this and need help, please contact us directly at (800) 655-

6997. You may also contact your trip team leader who will put you in touch with us. Please stay healthy and know that our Honor Flight San Diego Board of Directors is always thinking of our entire Honor Flight family.
