here there are tourists with money, crooks and scam artists are sure to lurk. These traveling con artists flock to special events in the area and specialize in conning people out of their money with a scam known as the three-card monte. Two incidents that happened here in Volusia County recently are prime examples of this scam, and it is my hope that by telling you about them you will be able to spot the scam. Three-card monte is a classic scam in which the con artist shows the victim three playing cards, says that one of them is the target card, and then quickly places all three face down and convinces the victim to bet on whether he can pick out the target card. While the game seems simple enough, the con artists are very skillful at tricking the victims through sleight of hand and misdirection. Often, the con artists work in teams, with an accomplice acting as a player who’s actually winning to draw the victim in. The game is usually set up on a cardboard box, which allows the suspects to fold up the game and leave quickly. Sometimes, the con artists resort to violence. Three truckers were drawn into
a game of three-card monte in the parking lot of Love’s Travel Stop at U.S. 1 and I-95 near Ormond Beach. This unsuspecting group lost a total of $1,000 and a gold ring.
From The Sheriff
…Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson
Another incident occurred at the same location. One would-be victim said he saw the card game, realized it was a scam, and walked away. On that same day, another trucker was told that someone had hit it big at a casino and was matching other people’s money. The victim was told to show his money if he wanted to get in. Once the victim pulled out $450, the suspect snatched the cash out of the victim’s hands and walked away. The victim tried to follow the suspect, but four or five accomplices grabbed the victim from behind and held him. The suspects then quickly scattered. This scam certainly isn’t restricted to any one county or area. My investigators are working to identify the suspects with other jurisdictions that have had reports of this scam. ST

A Grand Reunion
here is the friend that is so much a part of you, that you feel alone just thinking about her not being there. There is the friendship that is based on so much that nothing could ever dissolve or even threaten it. There is the friend with whom you share so much history that a misunderstanding rolls off instantaneously, and could never come close to shattering the bond. There is the friendship that cannot always be explained, but only understood and cherished by the people who share it.” —Anonymous. If you have friends like that, they will always occupy a very precious part of your heart. Many weeks have passed since a talented friend and leader exited the scene to care for her ailing husband. Everyone tried to honor her lack of presence but she was sorely missed. Close friends were concerned that, at the loss of her husband, she might disappear from her myriad of friends. Time passed and one day, when she was alone, she called to set up a reunion with fifteen gals that shared her love of music, ukulele style. What a grand reunion! As she questioned each person as to their current status, all of them were amazed at the changes in their lives… and all were so grateful that she had come to manage her grief and be back in the middle of her life… for life goes on. Friends were just waiting around the corner to share with her. A couple of the women had adorable new house pets; one was honored by family with a champagne birthday party; a couple of women had new grandchildren (or was it great-grandchildren?). The eldest of the group was pleased to share her recent role as the star of a show; another was the ‘fairy godmother’ at the dance studio; one hard-working woman says she never anticipates a time of retire-

ment. Then the group telephoned a missing friend who was recovering from hip surgery and the singing began. Talk… sing… eat… that much hadn’t changed. “There is the friend that mean so much to you, that you would lend a shoulder to cry on, offer a hug, or spend three hours just sitting with her if that would make it at all better. There is the friendship that has lasted through many

There is the friend that knows you as well as you know yourself, (or even better). There is the friend who can make you smile through your tears, or cry out of happiness.

by George & Peggy Goldtrap ag & I love serendipity trips… small excursions with no particular destination. We just drive and search. On a recent journey we found ourselves in Palatka where I noticed a sign… Railroad Museum. Stop, wake up, we need to take a look! (In a small town you can make a quick Uturn toward adventure.) The Museum was an old train depot. We fully expected to be peeping in the window, checking the schedule, but lo and behold, the station was open... right spot, right time. The recently renovated station was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The attractive waiting room interior is open Monday through Friday, 8-5. The Browning Railroad Museum, named after David Browning, the last railroad agent to work at the depot, houses exhibits, early photographs, documents, lanterns, tools, and ‘railroadiana’ about the golden days that made Palatka famous as a wood processing center. A well mannered and knowledgeable guide greeted us, inviting us to sign the guest book and asking if we were there to ride Amtrak. We were excited. We had stumbled back into history, (depot/museum), just as Amtrak was rolling down the tracks. That was just the beginning. Our serendipity had another surprise. The first Sunday and the third Saturday of each month, from 1-4 P.M., is open house for ‘kids of all ages’ to see the model train displays… running. The Palatka Railroad Preservation Society has an operating HO model train layout depicting Palatka and surrounding areas in the steam/diesel transition era. In addition there’s a room featuring Railrodeo, a 32 by 6 foot HO layout with 16 operating trains depicting the Pennsylvania countryside. Created by Irvin P. Saylor, the whole display toured the US in 1975. This amazingly detailed landscape and animation was promoted as The World’s Largest Mobile Scale Model Railroad. While I enjoyed the collections of history, memorabilia and photographs, GAG’s inner child enjoyed an afternoon playing with trains. Train guys never grow up. They live in perpetual Christmas morning. I briefly peeked at the large layout that was equally intricate, architecturally correct, precisely proportioned, and whimsical. For example, one train passed a rooming house with a pink Cadillac convertible parked in the back—beside the house, two boys had climbed to the top of a tree, hoping to catch a glimpse of the train. I was watching an historical, miniature world, in motion with trains headlining the show. GAG struck up a conversation with the train guys about wheels and numbers, none of which I understood, so I’ll leave the rest of the story to him. My (GAG) interest in model trains is in the accuracy with which they portray the real thing. The trains themselves are, for the most part, factory assembled. The scale is pretty accurate and attention to detail is usually well done. The artistry comes in building the layout—or the countryside in
which the RR is portrayed. In the Palatka layouts the work is excellent—both in the Saylor layout and that built by the local model RR society. You could stand for hours and not see all the detail and ‘life
Happy Talk …by George & Peggy Goldtrap
scenes’ on display. In one layout or the other, there was an urban environment, an Indian village, a hobo camp, a trailer park, bridges, tunnels, overpasses, playgrounds, schools, etc., etc., etc. The locals layout has a very unique system under construction for changing the elevation of an operating train… using a shallow grade corkscrew, under the layout, to bringing a full train to the layout surface. Likewise the Saylor layout has a unique ‘yard’ and repair area hidden behind the public viewing area. The tools look more like those of a dentist than a railroader. We give the Palatka RR Preservation Society 5 Stars… for its beautiful facility, for its forward thinking organization, for it interest in history, for its well built and displayed layouts, and for its accessibility to the public, especially the kids. Visit the Palatka RR soon. On another recent ‘RR trip’ we viewed the new layout of a friend who builds with the larger O gages. His layout is housed in its own barn, constructed to look like a caboose. It is a well designed layout built to honor his home town right down to the names many of the businesses and buildings—even the airport, funeral home, and a business his father built from the bottom up. One building in particular caught my eye—a 10 story building housing GAG International. How many folks have a building named for them? Makes me proud to be included. My hat’s off to my lifelong friend and his wife and to their beautiful trains. Model railroading started out as toys… but has grown into a hobbyist industry... and you know the old saying—the difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

Imploding Of Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial Special to Seniors Today
lorida Hospital Memorial Medical Center will implode Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial on Sunday, July 22 at approximately 7:30 A.M. The implosion is estimated to take less than 10 seconds. Access roads leading to Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial will be closed to traffic during the implosion and local traffic may be re-routed. Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center closed the main part of Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial in July 2009, but maintained operations of a
cancer center on-site until October 2010, when construction of the new Comprehensive Cancer Center (across from Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center in Daytona Beach) was completed. Maintaining the empty Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial facility cost approximately $800,000 per year, putting a drain on critical resources needed to provide quality care to the community. Orlando-based Central Environmental Services, Inc (CES) has conducted the demolition process and implosion and estimates that 75 to 85 percent of the materials generated from the demolition will be recycled.

f you are looking for ways to entertain your grandchildren this summer that don’t include sedentary activities like watching television or playing video games, consider becoming a local tourist in your hometown. Vacations can be a time to explore all that your hometown has to offer. Participating in nearby activities or events can be a great way to get your grandkids off the couch, out of the house, and on the road to becoming more physically active. Many cities and towns host summer festivals, farmers’ markets, outdoor concerts (with dancing), museum exhibits, summer holiday celebrations and family-based activities, and best of all—many are free. When planning your family’s active tour, here are some suggestions that you may want to consider: Shop local. Use local, in-season ingredients to make healthy meals. A trip to a lively farmers’ market or local farm can be a wonderful way to find inexpensive and fresh ingredients, and you can even burn a few calories picking your own produce! Set a challenge. Provide your grandkids with inexpensive pedometers and spend the day at a nearby museum or local attraction. Challenge the kids to track their steps and provide a healthy incentive to the child who ends the day with the most.
A visit from the grandchildren can be a great time to explore all that your hometown has to offer. Enjoy healthy and refreshing sweet treats. Try your hand at fresh fruit Popsicles, or freeze their favorite fruits, such as grapes or blueberries. Plan a healthy and fun summer visit. Find a few days on the calendar when you can turn time at the grandparent’s house into an active vacation for all of you—a vacation that doesn’t involve travel. Let the kids add their favorite physical activity to the schedule and get everyone moving. Check with your local visitor center or the community section of your newspaper for events or activities happening in your neighborhood. ST

Elder Care Tips
Medicaid Applications— Buyer Beware by Scott Selis, Esq. Applying for Long-Term Care Medicaid is usually very challenging. Selecting the right advisor can make the difference between approval and denial. A denied Medicaid application might cost you thousands of dollars per month because you will have to pay the entire facility bill. Here are some questions to ask: • How much experience does your advisor and their staff have with Medicaid Applications? • How many applications does your advisor process per month? • Does your advisor understand how to use littleknown methods that might protect your assets?
We can assist you with the Long-Term Care Medicaid process. Look for more Medicaid application tips in the next issue. Offered By: Scott A.

Social Security And Women Special to Seniors Today
ugust 26 is now known as Women’s Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. There are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. Women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more
years depending on Social Security and other retirement or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefitamount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more? You may visit our Women’s page at www.socialsec urity.gov/women Follow the link on that page to our publication, What Every Woman Should Know. You can read it online, print a copy, or listen to it on audio. We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide the information the way you’d like to receive it.

Time To Explore The Universe
y now we should have flying cars and be exploring other galaxies. What happened, I wonder. One of my favorite television shows was about this family that got themselves Lost In Space. Of course, there was all the shows like Star Trek and My Favorite Martian that implied that we would be reaching out to other worlds, or vice versa. Maybe it was just simpler times and we were naive about the universe we now live in, and thought it was just the natural process of things that we would be meeting people from other planets. Now we know that even if there are other life forms in the universe the time it would take for us to visit would be many lifetimes unless, that is, someone can invent a way to travel through time or some other phenomenal way to move about the universe. I remember well watching the telecast of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. It was a start that most felt at the time would lead to space exploration like we had been accustomed to seeing in movies and TV. It never happened. Like I said, the reality of what it would take to go—even to mount a project to send a person to a planet—is way beyond our capability. I watched something recently that said our universe was just one of an infinite number of universes out there. Scientists will probably discover one day that our cluster
of universes is only one of another larger expanse of multi-universe clusters. Kind of makes you feel small, doesn’t it?
Winding Roads …by Byron Spires
Manned exploration hasn’t even gotten past the moon, let alone the solar system or the Milky Way. At this rate, our exploration of space, like the starship Enterprise, is probably hundreds if not thousands of years away. That’s provided we do not destroy ourselves and our societies in the mean time. So where does that leave us? Well, for those that think they are the center of the universe or that it revolves around them, they are certainly wrong at this point. For the rest of us, well, we have a lot of problems we need to fix to hold this small insignificant little planet together until the time we can “go where no man has gone before.” ST

Antiques Disney Cookie Jar by Larry Cox Q: I have a Lady And The Tramp Siamese cat cookie jar that was made in 2004. I understand it has increased in value and wonder if you can give me an idea of how much. I seem to remember paying about $25 for it originally. —Sue, Camden, Ohio A: Remember the names of the cats? Si and Am. Your cookie jar was in a limited issue of 250 and is worth $200, according to The Official Price Guide To Disney Collections by Ted Hake. *** Q: Is there someone near me who can help me appraise my mother's dishes. They are approximately 80 years old, clear glass with an etched pattern. Can you help me? —Nora, Albuquerque, New Mexico A: I think your dishes are probably pieces of a Depression glass pattern. There are several excellent guides you can use to see if you can find your particular pattern. One of my favorite references is Warman's Depression Glass: Identification And Price Guide by Ellen T. Schroy and published by Krause (www.krause.com). This guide has most of the patterns issued, is fully illustrated, and easy to navigate. I think the prices listed accurately reflect the market-
place. Keep in mind that values change from region to region. For example, Coors pottery brings a much higher price in Colorado than it does in Vermont. If you would rather hire the services of an appraiser, there are several in the Albuquerque area, including Phyllis Thunborg (502-898-0863) and Suzanne Staley (888758-1118). Check out Staley's Website at www.suzannestaley.com You should expect to pay for this service. *** Q: I bought a corner cast-iron table a number of years ago for $75. It has dragon feet, and I bought it because I thought it was unique. I am enclosing a picture and would like to know the age of this table. —Lela, Godfrey, Illinois A: Without actually being able to examine this table, I can only venture a guess. It appears to reflect the styles of the 1920s and ’30s. To find out, you need to contact a dealer or appraiser in your area. ST

Books If Only Reviewed by Rose M. Croke
e all face loss in our lives, some earlier than others. In If Only, 13year-old Corinna Burdette loses her mother to cancer in the summer before she enters eighth grade. An only child, Corinna must grapple with this monumental loss at a time in her life when she needs her mother the most. The story begins in the autumn after her mother's death and follows Corinna as she struggles with the different stages of grief for a year after. The title of this fictional, young-adult novel, written by debut novelist Carole Geithner, comes from the unending hypothetical scenarios that Corinna silently ponders: If only her mom had been diagnosed with cancer sooner, if only her medical treatment had been successful, if only it wasn't her own mother, and if only she could see her mother again to tell her she loves her. Geithner has more than 20 years of experience as a clinical social worker,
working with children, adolescents, and adults, many of whom had childhoods shaped by significant loss. Her professional experiences and losing her own mother at a young age authentically informs the story. Readers will empathize with Corinna's grief process and the gaping hole that her mother's death has torn in the fabric of her young life. Corinna asks, “How can I continue to put one foot in front of the other when I can barely breathe? How can I smile and talk to everyone like I'm the old me, like nothing has changed?” The book isn't dark. It offers glimpses of light and humor. For example, Corinna will never look at baked ziti the same way again, thanks to all her good-natured friends and neighbors. If Only is a sensitive and uplifting novel that offers readers a glimpse into the world of a grieving teen and rewards them with a beautiful and hopeful story about the enduring power of love.

Why Is Good Posture Important? by Jack Verhees, P.T.
hen it comes to posture, your mother did know best. Her frequent reminders to stand up straight and stop slouching were good advice. Correct posture is a simple but very important way to keep the many intricate structures in the back and spine healthy. It obviously goes beyond cosmetics, since maintaining a correct posture goes hand in hand with preventing back pain and neck pain. This is extra important for people who spend many hours sitting in an office chair or standing throughout the day. Good posture helps maintain your gentle natural spinal curves, while poor posture does the opposite. It will exaggerate these curves and will lead to a forward head posture, rounding of the shoulders and a sway back. Stay too long in this position and even if you wanted to, you would not be able to correct the posture anymore without some extensive help. Good standing posture When standing, keep these tips in mind: • Hold your chest high. • Slide your chin slightly back. • Keep your shoulders back and relaxed. • Pull in your abdomen and buttocks. • Keep your feet parallel. • Balance your weight evenly on both feet.
• Make sure your knees are relaxed, not locked.
Acupuncture & Physical Therapy If you notice that you have a hard time to accomplish this above described good posture, you probably tend to slouch or stoop frequently, forcing your muscles and ligaments to struggle to keep you balanced, which will lead to fatigue, back pain, headaches, and other problems. Slouching also compresses your diaphragm, which leads to improper breathing and insufficient oxygen intake. Correcting your posture, and as a result getting enough oxygen to your tissue, helps to relax muscles and prevents stress from building up in the muscles, especially the muscles of the neck and back. So if you recognize some of these problems, don’t despair, there is help available for you. Physical Therapists are very experienced in diagnosing your posture correction needs, as well as correcting it. If you have questions or need more information, please call 386-898-0908.

Aquatic Class: Water aerobic activity is not about just swimming. It is an ideal exercise regimen even for fitness beginners. Aerobic water activities allow you to burn calories and build on your strength and flexibility. The buoyancy offered by water causes less strain on your joints and muscles. Bishop’s Glen’s temperature-controlled swimming pool is the ideal location for a water exercise routine. Classes: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9-10 am at the Pool.
Vital Stim Therapy For Dysphagia Vital Stim is an FDA cleared method to promote swallowing through the application of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to the swallowing muscles in combination with conventional swallowing exercises.

Section B July 20, 2012 Tails From The Front by Tyler Stover ugs seem to be everywhere during these summer months, but humans are not the only ones being bitten. Our pets are under attack by ticks, which are especially prevalent in the summer. According to many experts, this year’s mild winter has contributed to an even larger than normal crop of the pests. Ticks can be very dangerous due to their ability to transmit many diseases through their bite. They are arachnids that share similarities to spiders and mites. Ticks typically live in tall grass or brush, where they tend to hang out 18 to 24 inches from the ground. These areas can be found nearly everywhere
in Florida, which makes it a popular breeding ground for ticks. Ticks attach themselves to animals that enter their territory, or move from one animal to another. They can be seen with the naked eye, and often stay near an animal’s head, neck, ears, or feet. There are many medications and treatments available to prevent tick bites on your pet in the first place. It is best to talk with your trusted veterinarian to choose the right treatment for your pet. Proper lawn care can also reduce the threat by eliminating the tick’s environment. Keep your lawn mowed regularly to keep grass short, and trim bushes and plants.
Dispose of grass clippings and other plant waste that can also attract ticks. Cedar chips can be used to form a natural barrier to ticks, and natural herbs like catnip, lemon grass, basil, and lavender can be effective as well. If you do find a tick on your pet, be very careful when removing it, as any contact with a tick’s blood can transmit infection to you or your pet. Treat the surrounding area with rubbing alcohol, and pluck the tick off your pet using tweezers. Because they can transmit disease so easily, take care to avoid smashing or squeezing the tick, and avoid touching it with your hands. Once removed, place the tick in a sealed container filled with alcohol (the alcohol can
be avoided if you want to keep the tick alive). This allows the tick to be identified in the case you or your pet show signs of illness. Do not smash the tick, as you will be spreading disease around your house, and do not flush the tick down the toilet while it is still alive, as this will not kill it and it may come back. If you or your pet show any signs of illness following a bite or other contact with a tick, contact your doctor or veterinarian immediately.

This Is A Hammer Plan Now For Emergencies by Samantha Mazzotta
Q: I wanted to write and remind your readers to have a plan in place in case of natural disasters. I live in a hurricaneprone area, so I keep what I call a huricane kit ready at all times. It's stocked with first-aid supplies, food, water, and other items that I can grab and throw into the car in case my family needs to evacuate. I also know the location of important papers so I can grab those, too. I reserved a corner of my garage to store post-hurricane supplies like tarps, a generator, and basic tools. â€”Curtis F., Orlando A: Organization is key to surviving during and after a natural disaster, fire or other calamity. Here are a few tips to keep in mind: â€˘ Prepare your family for the most likely scenario depending on your geographic location: hurricane, tornado, blizzard, wildfire, flood, or other event. â€˘ Learn about and prepare for household emergencies, including fire, a gas leak, carbon monoxide leak, etc. â€˘ Create an escape plan and rehearse it with your family.
â€˘ Create an evacuation kit that includes important papers, food, water, first aid, blankets, and other items. â€˘ Include pets in your plans! Add pet food and medicines to your evacuation kit, along with a copy of their vaccination record and license. Keep their carry crate accessible. â€˘ If you must shelter in place during a disaster, designate your home's safe spot (basement, central room, closet, or bathtub, for example), and make sure everyone knows to get there quickly. â€˘ Create a post-disaster supply stash that includes several tarps (to cover damaged roof areas or create temporary shelter), a generator, canned foods, water and first aid, and store in a reinforced area if possible. Store gasoline away from the house at all times. ST

Finding Balance In The Battle Against Vertigo If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from spells of dizziness, you may now take a sigh of relief. A new procedure called Canalith Repositioning conducted at the Center for Dizziness, Balance & Motion Sickness will eliminate this problem in 85% of patients. The medical term for this condition is Benign Positional Vertigo; it can cause people to feel nausea, lose their balance, and prevent simple normal activities from being accomplished. A graduate of Georgetown University Medical School, Dr. Katz trained in Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. By far, the most common cause of vertigo in people over 65 is benign positional dizziness that occurs while the person is bending over, looking up, and lying down. It has been reported that balance related falls account for more than one-half of the accidental deaths among the elderly. The utricle is lined with nerve filaments, beneath a sticky pad of crystals. During the normal aging process the gravity-sensing crystals, called otoliths, are released from the utricle and work their way into the semicircular canal, where they float in fluid, head movements cause the otoliths to stimulate nerve endings, which results in vertigo. Once other causes of dizziness have been eliminated, he can proceed immediately with canalith repositioning. The condition is treated by a simple in-office maneuver where the patientâ€™s head is tilted in several positions in such a way as to remove this debris from the fluid in the inner ear. Canalith repositioning is a highly effective treatment and can be easily repeated if dizziness returns or is not completely eliminated the first time. Dr. Katz also treats people with balance problems. Way too often, people are told â€œyouâ€™re getting older, what do you expect?â€? But it is not a normal part of aging to lose your balance. Certain antibiotics or viral infections can damage the balance nerves leaving individuals with an insecure feeling when walking, especially when stepping off a curb, walking on an uneven surface like pebbles or lawns and walking in the dark. When balance problems arise, people have a tendency to restrict their activity and then the brain doesnâ€™t get enough stimulation to learn how to compensate for the injury. Vestibular Rehabilitation and Balance Retraining (which is performed in our office) is very effective in restoring balance by a process of adaptation and compensation. Dr. Katz also treats people with Meniereâ€™s disease that is characterized by episodes of vertigo that last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours and is also associated with hearing loss and ringing in the ears.

Treating The Osteoarthritic Knee
resently, because there is no known cure for osteoarthritis, the focus is symptom relief. With conventional treatment, osteoarthritis associated joint pain and stiffness can be diminished, and joint function and mobility preserved. The normal aging process or genetic predisposition are the source of cartilage decay. Cartilage, which is a living tissue, can maintain a decay and repair process at an equal rate with the help a cell called the chondrocyte and a surrounding substance of water, collagen, and proteoglycans. Excessive biomechanical stress, such as obesity or overuse, can cause an imbalance in the decay and repair process. Because of this imbalance, the cartilage becomes damaged and cracked, develops tiny fissures, and loses its elasticity, starting osteoarthritis of the hands, neck, back, hips, or knees. The first steps in managing osteoarthritis of the knees are to lose weight and to exercise. Walking, swimming, or cycling regularly can not only help increase muscle strength, but also improve joint flexibility and decrease pain.
Drug therapy such as topical or oral pain relievers and non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are usually prescribed to reduce joint pain and stiffness.
Where Does It Hurt? by Dr. Yong Tsai
For patients who respond poorly to drug therapy, particularly if the knee is inflamed and swollen, intra-articular corticosteroid injections, given no more than every three months, are quite helpful. Viscosupplementation therapy, known as Synvisc, Hyalgan, or Orthovisc works well by injecting a hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate the protective, lubricating, and shock absorbing effects of the synovial fluid. Maintaining an ideal weight, exercising regularly, and receiving the right treatment, can help minimize your pain and preserve joint function. For more information, please call 386-676-0307.

Here’s An Idea by JoAnn Derson
Got lots of fresh herbs from your summer garden? Hang bunches upside down in a cool, dry place for a week or so, and then crumble the leaves into small jars. Voila: your own dried herbs.
If you want to cool your canned drinks quickly, add water to the cooler with a lot of ice, submerge all drinks below the ice line, and wait about 20 minutes. Without the water, it takes much longer. The water extends the surface contact of the ice. To keep your ladder from sinking into soft sand or dirt, put each leg into a can or bucket. It creates a much larger surface area, thereby stabilizing the legs.
If you run out of bleach, add four tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide to a small load of whites.
“Want super-crunchy fries at home? Soak potato pieces in very cold water for an hour (fridge is best, or add ice often); dry and fry. Drain well, dust LIGHTLY with flour and quick-fry one more time for only a minute or so.” —T.C. in Idaho
“Be certain to use only distilled water in your iron. The water from the tap can leave mineral stains on clothing, and will destroy your iron if you use it all the time.” ST —R.E. in Louisiana Send your tips to Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

What’s In The Stars
For The Week Of July 23
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A heads-up alert to all free-spirited Ewes and Rams: Be wary of a deal that could result in compromising your independence. Check every detail. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New facts emerge that help put an irksome workplace situation in perspective. Pay more attention to a family member who needs your wisdom and strength. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A slight setback in plans is nothing to worry about. Use this delay to deal with a number of matters you might have ignored for too long. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You're entering a period of stability. Use it to straighten out any outstanding problems related to a very personal situation. Pay closer attention to financial matters. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming decisions. VIRGO (August 23 to Sept. 22) A difficult family situation improves, thanks to your timely intervention. You can now focus more of your attention on preparing for a career change.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An onthe-job change works to your benefit by offering new opportunities. It's up to you to check them out. Meanwhile, a stalled romantic situation starts up again. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That flare-up of Scorpian temperament cools down, leaving you more receptive to suggestions about changes that might need to be made in your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unusual period of indecisiveness is a mite frustrating. Things soon clear up, allowing the sage Sagittarian to make those wise pronouncements again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that you know best, but it's not a good idea at this time to try to force your opinions on others. Best advice: Inspire change by example. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Some setbacks could affect your plans to fortify your financial situation. Things start moving again by early next week. Enjoy your resurgent social life. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Show that often-hidden steely spine of yours as you once again stand up to an emotional bully. You've got the strength to do it, especially as friends rally. ST

On July 19, 1799, during Napoleon Bonaparte's Egyptian campaign, a French soldier discovers a black basalt slab inscribed with ancient writing near the town of Rosetta, about 35 miles north of Alexandria. Called the Rosetta Stone, the artifact held the key to solving the riddle of hieroglyphics, a written language that had been dead for nearly 2,000 years. On July 18, 1925, Volume One of Adolf Hitler's philosophical autobiography, Mein Kampf, is published. It was a blueprint of his agenda for a Third Reich and a clear exposition of the nightmare that will envelope Europe from 1939 to 1945.
On July 16, 1935, the world's first parking meter, known as Park-O-Meter No. 1, is installed on the southeast corner of what was then First Street and Robinson Avenue in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Parking cost a nickel an hour. By the early 1940s, there were more than 140,000 parking meters operating in the United States. On July 17, 1955, Disneyland—Walt Disney's metropolis of nostalgia, fantasy and futurism—opens. The $17 million theme park was built on 160 acres of former orange groves in Anaheim, California. Today, Disneyland hosts more than 14 million visitors a year, who spend close to $3 billion. On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 P.M. EDT, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, 240,000 miles from Earth, speaks these words to more than a billion people listening at home: “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Stepping off the lunar landing module Eagle, Armstrong became the first human to walk on the surface of the moon.

Acupuncture For Neck Pain
ommon symptoms of neck pain often include blurred vision, night sweats, shoulder blade pain, stiffness, and/or numbness in arm and headaches. Common causes of neck pain can be related to stress and emotional tensions, age-related disorders such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease, accidents resulting in whiplash, and common injury to the supporting tissues of the head and neck. Daily activities such as sleeping, sitting, poor posture, or obesity can result in excessive stress on the muscles of the neck causing tension that result in pain. Research studies have proven that Eastern holistic treatments such as acupuncture and herbal therapies provide a much healthier alternative for pain relief than the commonly prescribed, often addictive pain medications of the West. Acupuncture treatments provide a safe, natural way to alleviate neck pain. The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sees the human body as an integrated being. It works with vital energies inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is a vital energy that flows through meridians, pathways that run throughout the entire body. Qi protects the body from illness and provides nourishment to cells, tissues, muscles, and organs. During acupuncture treatments, fine, sterile needles are inserted at specific acupoints along these meridians to release Qi, unblock obstructions and correct imbalance.
Acupuncture has the ability to clear pinched nerves, increase blood circulation to the injured area, relax stiffened muscles, reduce inflammation, promote tissue healing, provide natural pain relief, improve range of movement and flexibility, and increase amounts of brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine responsible for activating the body’s sense of well being.
Acupuncture & Skin Care …by Dr. Lorenzo Phan DOM, A.P. Acupuncture practitioners commonly recommend a holistic health approach inclusive of herbal remedies, massage, and stretching addition to their treatments. According to Eastern holistic medicine, treatment of neck pain requires lifestyle changes with overall health as its goal. With the success of acupuncture growing each day with each new patient, chronic neck pain is now a condition that can be treated without the invasive and often dangerous options of surgery and medications.

Chicken Soup For The S oul Running Made Her Alive
was born with very poor eyesight. Retinitis pigmentosa limited what I could do to a certain degree. Night blindness prevented me from doing a lot of things after dark. I had to sit close to the TV to see what was going on. At school it was hard to see the chalkboard, and I usually sat in the front row. Close activities, like reading, writing, and sketching, were things at which I excelled at the best. And running. Running was something that didn't require fine visual acuity. If I knew where the finish line was, I was there. Speed is a gift. I didn't know why I was blessed with speed when I was a young girl, but I was. My dad said I could run like a deer, and I did. It felt good to run. To be faster than everyone. To win. Running kept my self-esteem going. With it came a keen sense of the physicality of my own body. I had trouble with the stairs, but on the gym floor or in the field, or in a yard, it was a different story.
My vision continued to deteriorate through the years, but my runner's high didn't. The strength and self-esteem it generated carried me through some challenging times—single parenthood, college, grad school, the loss of a man, the loss of one career due to my eyesight, the start of another. Were it not for running, I might not have met life's challenges or pursued all of my dreams. For me, the runner's high has lasted a lifetime. It reached far beyond the moment when my legs were pumping and my muscles were thrumming and my brain was soaring. It even reaches into my sleep at night, because sometimes I still have dreams where I'm running fast and free. My heart pounds, my breath quickens, my muscles thrive. I guess not everyone understands this—but a runner will. ST
