Hearing Loss or Just Earwax? Find Out Now Using A Tiny Video Camera. Dear Recipient: Modern technology is fascinating isn’t it? I’m writing to offer you an opportunity to take a look inside your ear using a tiny video camera called a Video Otoscope. This procedure is completely painless. The camera is actually placed just inside your ear canal. It will allow you to see all the way to your eardrum. The value of this procedure is that it may help you understand why you may be experiencing difficulties with your hearing like: • Hearing but not understanding certain words • Difficulty understanding conversation in noisy environments like restaurants • Frequently asking people to repeat themselves • Having to turn the TV up loud in order to understand what is being said Using the Video Otoscope, a hearing instrument specialist will be able to determine whether your hearing difficulties are being caused by simple ear wax. This exam may also reveal such common problems as: • Damage to the eardrum • Fluid accumulation in the middle ear • Other conditions which may make it difficult to hear clearly You will also receive a FREE hearing evaluation* to help further determine the type and cause of your hearing difficulties.

THERE IS NO CHARGE OR OBLIGATION FOR THESE SERVICES. Sincerely, Dan Allen Dan Allen, HAS Owner, Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist DAAH-1-0619-90171 *Hearing Evaluation & video otoscopic inspection are not intended to replace a physician's care.

You are invited to receive a FREE Video Otoscope inspection* of your ear canal and a FREE hearing evaluation*.

Living The Creative Lifestyle


y friend, Betty, stays home most of the time but lives an active and creative lifestyle. How does she do it? Well, during the time of the election of a president, she posted more political messages than we have ever seen on Facebook. The use of Facebook was a means of getting past the loss of a child. Since then (or perhaps during that time) Betty was making friends with women from the mid-west, the UK, and up north… where she is from. We kept wondering what took so much of her time on the computer, then learned that she has a group of online friends of all ages. She regularly corresponds with Kate and a dozen others whom she has never met. Betty is often heard laughing by herself with her computer friends. Some of them are now anxious to come to Florida and meet this interesting, outspoken lady. The Connecticut gals, born on common ground, have come to call themselves The Nutmeg Girls. I didn’t know that Connecticut was known as the nutmeg state! A couple of weeks ago, my grandson, Jesse, called from New York with good news. After a few years of teaching in the New York City public school system, he started a graphic arts business called Droppin’ Shorts. He worked independently as well as working for a company called And Now. Then he got an offer he couldn’t refuse. He was hired by FOX studios as the graphics designer for a new television talk show. The show, Bethenny premieres on September 9th. Here, again, the creative side of this man came to the surface and took over, though he has a Master’s Degree and was a teacher for several years. Two of my other grandsons, Hector and Robby, were in the original Casting Crowns Band, formed here in Daytona Beach. When the group left here to live in the Atlanta area, Robby was still in high school so his time as their drummer ended. Robby is happily employed by Apple Computers and Hector, after thirteen years with Casting Crowns, is now the Minister of Music at Sugar Hill Church in Atlanta.

You Name It

…by Kitty Maiden

Planning an event is another creative thing and my daughter, Terry, is especially good at it. For a dozen years, she set up a weight loss program at the dealership at the beginning of each new year and participants from all departments came each Friday to weigh in. They had a 4-page newsletter with the winning team of the week and their loss to date, plus some good hints. There were prizes for the greatest weight loss, etc. and this was long before the show of that kind was aired on TV. Always wondered if that’s how the network came to produce such a show. The creative juices flow now that we have so much technical support. More books are written by regular folks… videos are made and placed on computer’s YouTube and often find their place in national news … children are showing their talents earlier because of their little computers and there’s no end to the opportunities to express themselves as never before. It can be a great comfort to the stay-athome senior who has time to research and document your ancestry and leave it as a legacy for your children. You’ve got it in you… so enjoy living a creative lifestyle. It’s good for you. ST

Living a creative lifestyle has so many aspects. For example, I recently saw the most beautiful picture of my friend, Laura’s yard. Her gardening expertise shows in the array of flowers and shrubs she planted in her yard. Oh, how I envy her ability to keep plants growing so well. Some of us, creative or not, haven’t this same ability.

Update On Power Of Attorney Law


hen the law changed regarding durable powers of attorney in October, 2011, we suggested replacing older powers of attorney, because some institutions might refuse to honor older ones as to certain powers. We have seen those problems lately, so we again make that suggestion to those who did not do so before. This is a summary of the issues: • A power of attorney signed after October 1, 2011, can only be effective when signed; it cannot become enforceable upon a certification of incapacity. Now, old springing powers of attorney (i.e. those that come into effect after being signed) are not being honored by some institutions. • The new power of attorney says that, unless the document says otherwise, if more than one agent is named, either can act alone. Some institutions refuse to honor powers of attorney naming more than one Agent acting together. • The statute provides that powers the grantor must sign or initial the power of the Agent to create an inter vivos trust, amend, revoke, or terminate a revocable trust, make certain gifts, create or change rights of survivorship, or create or change beneficiary

designations. If the Agent needs to perform those acts, such as for a Medicaid application, and the powers were not initialed, it may be rejected.

Elder Law

Three Great Doctors… With Over Three Decades Of Experience Helping Patients Feel Better! …Still Accepting New Patients

…by Michael A. Pyle

• The new law says a third party must follow procedures and time requirements to reject powers of attorney. If the third party improperly refuses to acknowledge a valid power, the third party can be liable for damages, attorneys’ fees, and costs. We are seeing institutions, especially those without out-of-Florida legal departments, that refuse to acknowledge powers of attorney that comply with the law, and not utilizing the procedures set forth in the statute to reject the power of attorney. It is still a good idea to sign a new durable power of attorney if one was not signed after the change. Attorney Michael A. Pyle, of Pyle & Dellinger, PL, 1655 N.

Three ‘P’s Priority Plan by Peggy Goldtrap


f a hurricane was bearing down on the coast and mandatory evacuation was ordered, what valuables would you load in your car? If your home was burning down, what would you rush to rescue? If a tornado was heading for your community, who would you gather around you? The three Ps Priority Plan—People, Pets, and Photos. “We can rebuild, we’ve still got each other.” “We made it out together.” “I was so afraid my cat was still inside, but the fireman brought her out.” “We’ll be alright.” “A lifetime of accumulation and hard work, gone, but we are not defeated.” Survivors can always be seen hugging, holding hands, clinging to pets and mementoes. In states of emergency the three P’s prioritize our time and attention. GAG and I have been engaged in a “one of these days” projects. We’re transferring old, chemical stained slides onto digitized computer files where they are saved and can be shared with others. It’s slow, tedious pace lets us amble down memory lane. Fading images of children, friends, and families are priceless pages of our story. They would be mandatory cargo in mandatory evacuation. What about you? What would you consider priority? What or whom would you gather under your wings? Who are the people you’d reach to save. What numbers would you call to sound the alarm? All of us prioritize our lives using the three Ps. Anything else is an illusion. Any agenda, any meeting, any appointment, any business transaction, any procedure can be changed in case of emergency. How many times have you “dropped everything and left immediately to handle things?” How many times have you cried, “We’re on our way to comfort.” Have you ever wondered what the world could be like if we focused on our sameness instead of our savagery? Stripped of stereotypes, we are all more alike than alien, sharing a belief in three P principles. It’s easy to believe the opposite, to buy into bad news peddlers selling woe and worry, booking rides on the doomsday express. Examples of ordinary people doing

extraordinary things abound. The man who risks his life for a stranger. The woman who jumps into a raging river to rescue a child. The teenagers who run into a burning building to save their neighbor.

Happy Talk …by George & Peggy Goldtrap The three P’s are practiced at every level of life, every day of the week. Doubt that? Think about driving. What would be more terrifying than an Interstate filled with people who do not care for other people? The whole essence of safe driving is managing your own well-being and having the capacity to care about the safety of others. What about pets? People patiently walk their dogs, sometimes picking them up, holding them closely in case they’re cold. These people would risk life and limb to protect their pet companion from harm. Grandparents keep a crinkled drawing on the refrigerator door, or a handmade birthday card from a great-grandchild. Dads show their newborn’s photo to anyone who would stop to look? Why? We love to show our treasures. Priorities? They’re universal, without boundaries, beyond governments or religions. Everyone loves someone other than themselves, if not they’re classified as mentally ill. Everyone needs to nurture something smaller, more vulnerable than themselves, even a virtual pet. Everyone has photos, personal items, or mementoes valuable by association. If the fire alarm sounded, where would your attention be directed? Hopefully, no hurricane, fire, and storm will appear in our future, but just in case, just for fun, make your own three P’s list. Think on these things. Take some time, and several pages, to list all of the people and pets you love and care-take of, and all the special items that you define as precious. Before you’re finished you will discover another P to add to your list—Peace. ST George & Peggy Goldtrap are both actors, speakers, and writers living in Ormond By The Sea.

Household Cleaning Tips


ppliances are sometimes taken for granted as they perform their jobs but they need a little TLC from time to time so they work effectively and efficiently. Here are a few tips for cleaning and care of major appliances that will help them work better. Appliances usually come with an owner’s manual that fully explains how to use and care for it. There is normally a section for troubleshooting as well as a customer service number for you to call if needed. First and foremost, keep them clean, free from grease, food particles, and dust. Use a mild soapy solution to clean the surface of stoves and refrigerators. Some stove tops such as glass top, should be cleaned according to manufacturers’ recommendations. Be sure to check and clean the seals and gaskets to remove any debris that might prevent a proper seal. Check the drip pan under the refrigerator regularly to avoid odors from refrigerator condensation. Be sure to pull out kitchen appliances to clean behind and underneath. Coils can attract dust and can be cleaned using a long brush or vacuum cleaner. While pulled away from the wall, check water tubing and hook-up for any sign of leaking or wear and tear. This just may help prevent water damage to the appliance, floors, and walls. Should signs of moister be present, wipe up visible water and check for signs of mold. Clean appropriately. Dishwashers should be cleaned with a mild soapy solution to keep it looking good and

clean on the outside. Don’t forget to wipe the gasket on the door to keep food soil from preventing a good seal. Always use the appropriate detergent. Clean out the food trap too. Dryers and washing machines also require some attention. Washing machine water hoses should be inspected and replaced if showing wear. A good rule of thumb would be to replace the hose every 3 to 5 years, according to manufactures suggestions. A busted washing machine hose has flooded and damaged many a home and could be prevented with a little diligence.


Life …by Kathy M. Bryant Dryers could be a source of damage from fire. Clean behind the dyer occasionally or more often depending on how much it issued. Check the dryer exhaust vents for lint build-up and remove. Always clean the lint trap after each load. For heavy or bulky loads that take longer to dry, consider cleaning the lint trap in the middle of the cycle. Pay attention to the area around the lint trap as well, and remove all debris you can. Long, flexible brushes are available to make this chore easier. ST Kathy M. Bryant is with the Volusia County Extension Office. For further information, call 386-822-5778.

Special to Seniors Today


n 1970, a West Virginia housewife, Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, initiated a campaign to set aside a special day just for Grandparents. Through concerted efforts on the part of civic, business, church, and political leaders, this campaign expanded statewide. Senator Jennings Randolph (D-WV) was especially instrumental in the project. The first Grandparents Day was proclaimed in 1973 in West Virginia by Governor Arch Moore. Also in 1973, Senator Randolph introduced a Grandparents Day resolution in the United States Senate. The resolution languished in committee. Mrs. McQuade and her team turned to the media to garner support. They also began contacting governors, senators, congressmen in every state. Letters were sent to churches, businesses, and numerous national organizations interested in senior citizens. In 1978, five years after its West Virginia inception, the United States Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The proclamation was signed by President Jimmy Carter. (September was chosen for the holiday, to signify the autumn years of life.) Today this event, begun by only a few, is observed by millions throughout the United States. Grandparents Day is suppose to be a family day. Schools, churches, and senior organizations honor grandparents with special events. Some families enjoy small, private gatherings. Others celebrate by holding a family reunion. Board games which are easily played by young and old add enjoyment to family gatherings, enhancing intergenerational interaction. For those who entertain large groups, it can be fun to have a story-telling time, allowing grandparents to relate stories of their past, enlightening children about the old days. Also interesting is to take a census, such as oldest and newest grandchild, family with the most grandchildren, and families with five generation present. As Grandparents Day approaches, help Children and/or Grandchildren to identify and date all photos in old family albums.

Many happy memories can be derived from this. Everyone is a grandchild and can be involved in the observance of this day—a time to discover one's roots and learn patience, understanding, and appreciation for the elderly. Grandparents Day is the perfect time to enhance communication between the generations. Many times, only grandparents have answers to questions about family histories. When this information is passed down to the grandchildren, everyone can be assured of his heritage being preserved. Most important, Grandparents Day can signify a loving spirit that lives within us throughout the year—a spirit of love and respect for our elders. Shut-Ins And Homebound Elderly Along with Grandparents Day, we should not forget shut-ins and those in nursing homes who are unable to be with their families or have no families. Every effort must be made to include these people in the mainstream through cards, community projects, and visitation at times other than just holidays. There are many, many elderly who are not fortunate enough to have family nearby. The need is increasing every day to fill the void of their loneliness. In every neighborhood, there are elderly who would love an opportunity to be a Foster Grandparent. Parents, churches, schools, and senior organizations, help children to adopt a grandparent! ST

Country Legend—Loretta Lynn Special to Seniors Today


true legend of country music is coming to the Peabody in Daytona Beach September 13 at 7:30 P.M. Loretta Lynn, known as one of the first ladies of country music, is on tour celebrating the re-release of her biography and, on Friday, September 13, she will grace the Peabody stage with a presence only she can portray. “To make it in this business, you either have to be first, great, or different,” says queen of country Loretta Lynn. “ I was the first to ever go into Nashville, singin’ it like the women lived it.” The touchstones in Lynn's life have been well covered, but in short: She was born a coal miner's daughter in Butcher Holler, Kentucky. She married at 13 and had four kids before she was 20. She and her husband loved hard and fought hard, and he nudged her into a new career at 24 by buying her a $17 Harmony guitar and encouraged her to write and sing. She proved to be quite skilled at both. By 1959, she was singing for audiences, by 1962 she'd hit the country charts, and by the middle of that decade she was a star. “I ain’t a star—a star is something up in the night sky,” said Lynn. “People say to me, ‘You’re a legend.’ I’m not a legend. I’m just a woman.” th The year 2010 marked the 50 anniversary of Lynn’s arrival on the country music

scene with her debut single, Honky Tonk Girl; other memorable hits by Lynn include Wine, Women, And Song, You Ain’t Woman Enough To Take My Man, Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind), and the 1970 song that inspired the biographical movie, Coal Miner’s Daughter. Lynn's songs were propelled by her powerhouse voice, but they were also marvelously constructed narratives. She wrote fairly frankly about sex and its aftermath, from children to fights—and she was unafraid to project the travails of her own marriage onto the radio. Lynn would occasionally dabble with songwriting that concerned itself with vaguely defined matters of the heart, but her work is notable for more often being driven by compact stories told with clarity. Loretta Lynn was inducted into the national Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York in 2008. She may have won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010, but Loretta Lynn’s life is still a work in progress. "I feel better now than I ever did," Lynn says. "I can outwork all the new artists today. Sometimes they have to make me get off the stage."

Quality Time Is Priceless


spent time with my granddaughter recently and as always it was special. She continues to amaze me with both her questions and comments. I’ve heard that a lot from other grandparents about their grandkids being the same way: so my conclusion is that we have a large number of very bright children on the way to being adults. Their world one day will be so different from the one we have now. I read recently that many of the jobs of which they will fill as adults have not even been invented or perfected yet. That is something when you think about it. Growing up we had no idea what computers were and now we cannot live without them. Technology even 10 years ago to now has changed unbelievably. Computers are so much faster and cell phones have changed dramatically even in the past five years. There are iPads, Nooks, and a host of other technological breakthroughs. There are schools that are using virtual teaching now with many more looking to do the same. Jane Claire will probably graduate from a high school in which the vast majority of her education will come from new techniques and technology. There is no way to stop this, nor would I want to do such a thing. I cannot even imagine what her children will see in their lifetimes. Right now, though, Jane Claire likes books and reading and so do I. So we spend time reading together. She also has a

good imagination, which is important when it comes to reading. She also likes the stories that I tell her. Most are made up stories about a giant shark or a tiny fish princess that is saved by the brave seahorse. The stories have characters like Bob The Fish, Eight Legs, Jam The Clam, Buddy the Barracuda, and a host of others. The fish stories started after we went to the Atlanta Aquarium, by the way.

Winding Roads …by Byron Spires

Although she has all of those new-fangled electronic games, I’m glad she still likes to hear those stories I tell her. If I have learned anything in my life it is that because we live in such a strange world in which children have to grow up so quickly, it is nice to sit on the couch and tell a story or read a book with a child. My biggest concern is that at the speed at which things are happening we soon forget about quality time. For now, Jane Claire and I will continue to save the tiny butterfly princess fish and stop Ol’ Bill The Eel from taking over the undersea kingdom... at least for a little while longer.

Antiques Citrus Labels by Larry Cox

Q: I have collected citrus labels for at least 30 years. Most are from California. The artwork and bright, splashy colors first attracted me to this field of collecting. Since I have some duplicates, can you recommend a collector or group I can contact? —Jim, Cedar City, UT A: Your labels were originally used to identify the contents of wooden crates being shipped to market. The colorful lithographs, especially those printed before 1950, have become extremely collectible. Most seem to be selling for less than $10 each, but as I often have said about collectibles, there are always exceptions. Noel Gilbert is secretary/ treasurer of the Citrus Label Society, 131 Miramonte Drive, Fullerton, CA 92835; and *** Q: I have a glass plate that has been passed down through my family for several generations. It has an image of U.S. Grant with the text, Let Us Have Peace. It is yellowish-green in color. —Wilmer, Rio Rancho, NM

A: Commemorative and politically themed plates were especially popular during the Victorian era. One of my favorite references is Political Collectibles: Identification And Price Guide by Dr. Enoch L. Nappen. In addition to a U.S. Grant plate, I also found ones with images of Benjamin Harrison and James Garfield. These plates are valued in the $75 to $100 range. *** Q: I have four magazines from the 1950s: Playmate: The Favorite Magazine Of Boys And Girls. The issues contain puzzles, games, stories, color by number, and even paper dolls. Incidentally, you could order this magazine at that time for $1.50 per year. What do you think they are worth? —Beverly, Woodriver, IL A: Your magazines are valued in the $7.50-$10 each range, depending, of course on condition and if they are intact.

unday’s Parade magazine cover story featured a football tailgatefood theme which spot-lights America’s favorite brown food group. Simple to prepare, snack foods are high in calories but low in nutrients. The emphasis is more on the sweet/sour velvety tongue texture than whether the chili ravioli was deep fried in corn oil. With the kids going back to school or college, working parents are looking for a way to boost the days most important meal: breakfast. How can you get the protein value associated with eggs without cooking? Get out the blender and simply drink a morning meal or snack. Natural Factors has developed a new whey protein powder derived from the milk of grass fed cows. For growing children and adults, whey protein is the gold standard for having the highest biological value: the measurement of how well a protein retains nitrogen and how useable it is to the body. Simply put, high nitrogen absorption enhances much gain. Compared to other proteins, whey contains the highest concentration of branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) which serve as a critical fuel source for skeletal muscles. During periods of metabolic stress (school, work, and exercise), BCAA’s help maintain or increase muscle mass and help prevent fat storage. It also stabilizes blood sugar, which is why it is so effective with hyperactive children or adults to stay on task or focus. Read Dr. Michael Lyon’s, MD, book, Is Your Brain Starving? It is a great read for parents and is available at both our stores. Called Whey Factors, this new protein powder supplies the muscle enhancing BCAA’s: L-leucine, L-isoleusine and Lvaline along with several building block amino acids. Dr. Oz is promoting several of these amino acids. Valine, for example, is one of those that supports optimal body shaping and muscle definition. Natural Factors proprietary formulation retains the natural goodness of whey using only milk from Canadian cows. Canada, unlike the US, does not allow the genetically modified hormones rBGH and BSE to be injected into their cattle. This also supports Love Whole Foods whole milk standard: No GMO/hormones. These contaminants are dangerous and pose a health risk, especially for children. So why whey? The most researched aspect of whey protein is its benefit to our immune system. High in the amino acid cysteine, whey factors raise the critical anti-oxidant called glutathione which is essential to proper immune system health. Glutathione stimulates anti-body production as well as triggering enzyme actions which vanquish foreign invaders. Mom, that helps your child fight infections they may be exposed to at school. For the rest of us, this means fighting the flu or even cancer. Go online and download the April 1, 2013, issue of Time Magazines cancer cover story. It is dedicated to the whole new interdisciplinary approach to fighting a scourge that

now touches 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in their lifetime. Read the section on the gene link and you will understand why you want to be cognizant of GMO tainted food. We will be promoting GMO awareness the entire month of October at both our stores. The science is definitive. A 2010 human clinical study published in Jama showed the results of a long term European trial called: The Diet, Obesity and Genes Project (google Diogenes Project) which confirms what earlier articles on diabetes has stated. Eating higher quality proteins with to no saturated fat along with a low-glycemic index foods resulted in the following: balanced blood sugar (no spikes), increased satiety (no need for dessert or snacks), and as overall decreased daily caloric intake. Get more nutrients, fewer calories which results in weight loss that stays lost. Folks, if you are struggling with “waist management” or are dreading the coming football season, or you are a boomer flirting with metformin then read on. If you are a senior citizen trying to get muscle back after joining the zipper club, then there is a simple lifestyle change you can employ and it even tastes great! Just mix a scoop of Whey Factors in 8 ounces of water, almond, rice, or low fat organic milk. You pick from three flavors. Then add the life changing benefits of essential fatty acids. Barleans organic flax oil with organic coconut oil is the best. Throw in some ice cubes and turn on the blender. You now have a brain busting/heart boosting power shake! Wow, a meal replacement that can build muscle, balance blood sugar, promote satiety, boost our immune systems and fight Alzheimer’s… all that for $1.80/ serving…just under $2 if you add the omega oils. To help you make that goal happen, Love Whole Foods has partnered with Natural Factors to offer their entire product line at a 25 percent savings for the entire month of September. If you would like to get more information, tune in to my radio program every Friday at 9 A.M. on 1150AM. We are also excited to have my friend Dr. Michael Murray give a one night presentation on October 3. This nationally recognized author and researcher for Natural Factors will be speaking at 7 P.M. at the Calvary Church.

Section B August 30, 2013 Tails From The Front early 70 percent of households in the U.S. currently have at least one pet. While we often think about how we provide for our pets, any pet owner can attest to the wealth of benefits our pets offer us as well. These benefits can be emotional, physical, social, or mental. Pets affect each person differently, but in nearly every case, it is a very positive relationship for all involved. Playing with a pet is a proven mood booster. Petting your dog or cat, or even watching a fish is shown to have a calming and relaxing effect. Our bodies actually show lower stress hormone levels after these

activities, along with higher levels of serotonin, a natural chemical linked with happiness and well-being. Pets are even prescribed by therapists in some cases to help people fight depression. There are physical benefits to owning a pet as well. Pet owners tend to have lower blood pressure, heart rates, and cholesterol rates than those without pets. They are at a significantly lower risk of cardiac disease. Children that grow up in a home with a cat or dog are less susceptible to allergies and asthma, and often have stronger immune systems. Pet owners also get more exercise and are less likely to be obese. Dog owners, for example, often meet the minimum rec-

ommendations for physical fitness just by taking their pup on daily walks. Pets often increase social interaction for their owners. Children that grow up with a pet tend to have stronger social skills. They can also learn the importance of responsibilities if put in charge of feeding or exercising the family pet. Adult pet owners benefit as well. Pets are natural conversation starters. Nearly all pet owners love to share their favorite pet stories, opening an easy avenue for conversations. Dog owners also take advantage of the opportunity to meet and socialize with others while taking the dog for a walk or visiting the dog park. It’s a win-win for pets and their owners.

Books Crime Of Privilege Reviewed by Rose McAllister Croke


emingway wrote: “Don't we pay for the things we do?” No one knows this better than George Becket, the notso-innocent main character in Walter Walker's book Crime Of Privilege. While he wasn't born to privilege, George understands how it works and has benefited from it through the influence of his connections. A lawyer by trade, George works in the office of the Cape and Islands district-attorney's office—a job he acquired after he witnessed the rape of a drunken young woman by members of the Gregory family, one of Cape Cod's most revered and influential political families. Haunted by the fact that he did little to stop the craven attack and his subsequent testimony that exonerated the perpetrators, George spends years in denial while also seeking redemption and absolution. Approached by another man whose daughter was brutally slain nine years prior at a golf club, George decides to launch an investigation and opens the dusty cold case file.

Again, all leads point in the direction of a single family and reveal a massive cover up by local police and key members of his very office. Despite threats to his life and revelations that threaten to destroy his world, George is driven to reconstruct the victim's final hours and find out who killed her. George's investigation takes him from Idaho to Hawaii, Costa Rica to France, and New York City. Everywhere he goes, he meets people like himself —people who have more to gain by remaining silent than by speaking up, people haunted by past decisions and admissions never told, and all of whom were handsomely rewarded to protect the reputation of one family. Riddled with a cast of deeply flawed and selfishly motivated characters, Crime Of Privilege is a carefully crafted legal thriller that makes interesting observations about class, privilege, power, corruption, and the uneven scales of justice.

This Is A Hammer Avoid Common Painting Mistakes by Samantha Mazzotta Q: I just started doing some repainting around the house, and I am finding that my first efforts don't look great. The paint seems thick in some spots; old paint is still faintly visible in others, and I can see brush marks everywhere. I'm going to need to start over, I guess. Any advice on how to improve my painting skills? —Susan in Kansas City, MO A: First, I'm glad you stopped with the first room as soon as you saw the problems. That way you can fix the mistakes there and learn enough to not repeat them in other rooms, which saves time and money. Experience will help improve many of these common painting problems. There are some basic steps to take that will minimize the issues. • Paint showing through the new coat: Put a coat of primer between the old paint and the new when the old paint is a darker color or if it is a different type of paint (oilbased vs. latex-based, for example). • Thick-looking spots: These can be caused by painting a second coat before the first one is dry, or by painting over fresh spackling that isn't dry. Thick spots on the old coat of paint also will show through the new one; try to sand those down beforehand. • Brush marks: Always stir the paint when you open the can, even if the paint

store pre-stirred it for you. Make sure not to overload your brush with paint: dip only about one-third of the brush. Finally, make your brush strokes smooth and long, and lift the brush away so the paint feathers out. • Uneven roller strokes: Apply paint to the roller evenly by using a paint tray or screen. Dip one side of the roller into the paint reservoir and then roll it back and forth on the tray or screen so it spreads evenly. Also, don't let the roller slide across the wall surface; it should roll freely. If it doesn't, disassemble and clean it. • Paint drips: Again, don't overload your brush or roller. If paint drips down the wall, finish the brush stroke and then brush the drip in the same direction that you're painting the rest of the wall, feathering it out. If paint drips on the floor or baseboards, wipe it up immediately with a damp cloth. • Paint splatters: This happens often when using rollers, so always start your roll by angling upward, and roll smoothly and evenly. Don't hurry. ST

Cataract Surgery


ataract surgery is one of the most successful procedures in modern medicine—improving vision and quality of life for millions of people each year. Before cataract surgery, it is important to have a thorough eye exam. If you have a condition affecting another part of the eye—such as the retina, optic nerve, or cornea—your vision may be limited after surgery. The cornea is the clear window into the front of the eye—the part of the eye where a contact lens is placed. Because light enters the eye through the cornea, it must be clear and healthy to have good vision. Several corneal conditions can limit vision after cataract surgery and may require treatment. Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy is a genetic condition which affects the surface of the cornea. In this condition the surface cells (epithelium) do not attach firmly to their underlying membrane. As a result, affected patients experience blurred vision from an irregular ocular surface. Patients can also develop painful abrasions if the epithelium loosens. It is important to identify this condition before cataract surgery because affected patients may want to avoid premium multifocal lens implants due to the risk of glare and halos. Fuchs dystrophy is another common genetic condition which affects the back layer of the cornea—the endothelium. This layer of the cornea pumps fluid out of the cornea and back into the eye. Everyone

needs a certain number of these cells to keep the cornea thin and clear. Patients with Fuchs dystrophy have fewer endothelial cells than normal.

All About Vision by Dr. Rory A Myer After routine cataract surgery a certain number of these cells stop working. Most normal patients retain enough working cells to see well. Some patients—most often patients with Fuchs dystrophy—lose enough cells that their corneas become swollen and hazy. This will limit vision after cataract surgery, and a partial cornea transplant may become necessary. Some patients have Fuchs dystrophy severe enough that they need a cornea transplant done at the same time as the cataract surgery. A careful examination will identify these and other corneal conditions which might affect the outcome of cataract surgery. If necessary, a referral can be made to a cornea subspecialist. Patients should feel comfortable asking their surgeon if—other than the cataract—the rest of the eye looks healthy, so they know what to expect from their cataract surgery. Dr. Myer is one of the Ophthalmologists at Tomoka Eye Associates.

Senior Service Line Medicare Change Is Hush-Hush by Matilda Charles

t used to be that if seniors received physical therapy, they had to get better or Medicare wouldn't pay for it. If their condition later got worse, Medicare would jump back in and pay for more treatment. It was the same for coverage of other types of skilled care: rehabilitation, nursing (care that can't be given by a nonmedical person), speech therapy, and more. No improvement meant that it wouldn't be paid for. Some seniors won't get better. Their improvement reaches a plateau and stops. Or perhaps they have a chronic disability. They do, however, need care to maintain the levels they currently have. With home health or outpatient care, they could continue to live at home. There was a lawsuit, and the judge agreed: Getting better isn't required to keep coverage. This change takes place immediately, and per a Kaiser Health News bulletin, it applies to “all care by skilled professionals in outpatient therapy, home health care, and nursing homes.”

The agreement from the lawsuit, however, doesn't require that Medicare tell us about the change. Apparently we're supposed to find out by ourselves. From now on, claims filed, even if there hasn't been any improvement in a senior's condition, won't be turned down automatically. At this point, it appears that some doctors and therapists don't know about this change: If continued treatment is required, even past the standard dollar limit, they can put a code on the claim that states further treatment is medically necessary. According to the lawsuit, Medicare has until next January to notify employees who staff the 800MEDICARE information line, doctors, and other health-care providers. If your providers say your coverage will come to an end, be sure to tell them about this important change. ST Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible. Send e-mail to

Chicken Soup For The S oul When Husbands Help With Dinner


utting boards, jars, knives, and a colorful mix of veggies cluttered the kitchen island. Minced onion, garlic, and ginger swam in hot, golden olive oil in a pan. Following a sniff trail, my husband approached and gently brushed my hair aside to kiss my neck. “Smells great. Tell me what I can do to help, hon.” “Would you mind going to the deck and getting the seasoning I left out there?” He nodded and headed outside, only to return in under 90 seconds. “I'm sorry. Can't find it. Where exactly is it?” Concentrating on my prep work at the sink, I pressed the mute button on my right -in-plain-sight-did-you-even-look-ormove-anything thoughts and responded, “It's on the shelf in the corner. Thanks.” With a cheery “Okay,” he headed back to the deck. Four minutes later, he reappeared. Hearing him enter, I automatically stretched out my hand for the seasoning. “Tell me again... where exactly?” Did I have to be so precise? Our deck isn't a football field. I stopped myself from saying what I wanted to say, in the howcould-you-miss-it-do-I-need-to-drawyou-a-map vein. I must wrestle this com-

munication snafu to the ground. After all, I am a marriage counselor! “Look on the second shelf... the threetiered glass and metal thing... next to the barbecue pit... where we keep the bug candles.” I separated my directions into chunk -size bits of detail. By this time, I could have crawled sideways there and back three times and been done with it. He made his third trip, but returned empty-handed. I could sense he was frustrated, so I sweetly asked, “Would you like me to show you where it is, dear?” “Sure, but it's not there.” I hooked my arm in his—by now we were each grinning in anticipation. I took him to the window overlooking the deck and pointed. “Can you see it now?” “Well, duh. Why didn't you just say it was to the right of the outlet? I would've found it immediately.” We hugged and laughed over a humorous ending to a threatened mini-crisis of annoyance and bickering. I suppose a woman's clearly perfect directions can also be clearly muddy to her husband. We can move on with humor and grace, or spoil the moment with nitpicking words.

Flashback Do You Remember? by Mick Harper

1. Which group released Going Underground, what's the song about, and what year was it released?

2. Who released Hot Pants in 1971?

3. Kisses Of Fire was the B-side single for a 1979 ABBA hit. What was on the A-side?

4. Who recorded Gimme Shelter, and when?

5. Name the song that contains this lyric? “Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack, He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch, I'm going to throw you on the railroad tracks!”

Answers 1. The Jam, in 1980. The lyrics comment on the British arms policy and the spending of public dollars on weapons instead of social programs. 2. James Brown. The song's full title was Hot Pants (She Got to Use What She Got to Get What She Wants). It was a three-part single. 3. Does Your Mother Know, an older man's responses to the flirting of a younger girl. 4. The Rolling Stones, in 1969. The opening track on their Let It Bleed album, it was never released as a single. 5. Along Came Jones, by The Coasters in 1959. The joke song is about damsels in distress on television shows, all rescued by “Jones.” Salty Sam was the villain in each case.

Practice Exclusively Dedicated To Vein Treatment

Here’s An Idea by JoAnn Derson • Speaking of washing machines, this is from E.W. in Indiana: “To keep your washing machine smelling great, dump a gallon jug of white vinegar into the machine and set to wash and rinse on hot. I use just water and vinegar once every few months, and my clothes never have an old water smell!” • Swimmer's ear remedy: “Equal parts vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Put a few drops in either ear, and it'll dry them out.” —O.I. in Texas • Get hard-water deposits off of showerheads by filling a zipper-style bag with vinegar and securing it to the showerhead using a rubber band. Let it soak overnight, then run hot water through it to clear. Amazing! • Pet or smoke odors in your home? Fill a few bowls with plain vinegar. Set them out for several hours to eliminate the smells.
