Healthful Dieting

T

hinking of shedding some of those unwanted pounds? With so many diets to choose from how does one find the right regimen to follow? Which one will work for me and which one offers the fastest results? These are the questions dieters are asking. These are hard questions to answer since many factors affect the outcome. Lifestyle, type of work, activity level, likes and dislikes, are just a few of the factors that play a role in the effectiveness of a diet. In addition, older folks need to consider medical conditions and medication. Losing weight healthfully and keeping the weight off requires a long term commitment. Some changes are necessary in the foods eaten, portion sizes, activity level, and possibly the timing of meals. There are some key ingredients to safely losing weight and keeping it off. Ask yourself the following questions. • Have you checked with your doctor for a safe weight loss program? • Are you getting your daily nutrients? Many diet plans limit the amount of food too severely and do not allow for the minimum daily requirements. • Do you eat at all meal times or do you skip meals? Do you include snacks to keep from getting too hungry or missing out on certain nutrients?

• Do you eat a variety of foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, and fruits? Some diet plans eliminate whole groups of foods.

Day-To-Day

Life …by Kathy M. Bryant

• Have you reduced the number of calories you drink? Consider eating whole fruits instead of fruit drinks or juices. Your benefit from the added fiber and less sugar. Avoid soft drinks and alcoholic beverages that offer nothing more than sugar calories. • Are you choosing your calories wisely? Nutrient packed foods like fruits and vegetables, dairy, and whole grains will help you feel satisfied longer. • How is your activity level? Add activities that you enjoy like gardening or walking. Be physically active for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week. If that’s too long for you, break up the activity into three sessions of ten minutes each. ST Kathy M. Bryant is with the Volusia County Extension Office. For further information, call 386-822-5778.

Those Were The Days

H

aving always lived in Virginia, our first trip to Florida was quite surprising. We always heard of Daytona Beach as the World’s Most Famous Beach, so we thought nothing of stopping in Jacksonville to pick up a Daytona paper so we could get a head start on planning our vacation. Not possible. Unlike the New York Times, that newspaper was just available locally. We came to Florida for a visit, inspired by the fact that my parents had a “mom and pop” motel on the ocean. It was Christmastime and in their living room was a huge fireplace made of, what appeared to be, coquina rock. It was so beautiful. Though the weather was very nice, we had a fire in the fireplace and contentment reigned throughout our visit. The next time we visited Florida, we got together with family friends and came in the summertime. It was a wonderful vacation, spending time at the inlet watching the shrimp boats come in, checking out the lighthouse, hearing all about the whale that was washed up on the motel lawn through a break in the seawall during a hurricane… and, most of all, getting deep suntans. Eventually we came to Florida with General Electric and, like many others, we never left. The NASCAR races were still being run on the beach because of the hard packed sand but progress was being made to construct the track. Many people in town invested in the venture. A1A was still 2-lanes with the road peaking in the middle allowing sand to accumulate on both sides. To the west, Nova Road (also 2-lanes and the truck route) bore deep ruts from traveling vehicles. On a slightly rainy day, driving on Nova Road would send water flying to the top of the car. Even that was an adventure. We learned right away that there was an association called 2,000 Cottages. During busy seasons, days were assigned to motels as clearing houses. All the motel managers called in their vacancies to the one in charge that day and visitors were effectively given the address of an available motel vacancy. Across from the Seafoam Motel was a former drive-in theater that had been turned

into a church. People could go there in their cars, dressed however they wished. They would put speakers in their car windows for the church service. The church has stayed and grown from those early days and is still a place for residents and visitors to worship. When we moved here, there were no taxicabs. Everyone in town got where they were going by car or on a lovely trolley that ran on A1A.

You Name It …by Kitty Maiden

In the mid-60s and early 70s, some motel managers were reluctant to encourage motorcyclists to stay with them. It was a scary time when writers were telling you all about the worst of the lot. It wasn’t but a few years before the town came to know and appreciate the coming of the cyclists in March. Now we look forward to their coming in March and October. Many motorcycle clubs have begun having charitable runs to benefit some important local projects. One thing that surprised me a few years ago. We singers were in Daytona Beach Shores (DBS) during the holidays for engagements and the mayor arranged for a group of eight of us. Having first come to DBS when we arrived in Florida, I was familiar with the lifestyle of those days. Returning there, I learned that, though the town had grown; the highrisers had gone up where the vacant acreage used to be; the town was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the community was far more involved that when my dad was the first City Manager of the town, very little had changed. In other words, the town looked different, there were different people, etc. but I felt as though I had never left there. To feel as much at home, as if it was the 70s, was a surprise. Though a few miles from there, I’ve been your neighbor for quite some time and like an expression I once heard, “It’s been real!” ST Kitty Maiden is a staff writer for Seniors Today.

Who Is Will Rogers’ Papa? by George Goldtrap

Page A-6—Seniors Today—February 3, 2012

ecently in conversation with Peg about an unknown outcome, I made reference to the $64 question. A grandchild perked up and asked: ‘What's the $64 question Papa?’ ‘What is’… or ‘who is’… or ‘when was... Papa?’… is a frequent question around our house. The phrase comes up when one of us, in the presence of one of our grands, discusses something which is totally foreign to their reality or beyond their frame of reference. Our nostalgic departures are black holes in their experience. Our ‘remember when’ is pretty much total mystery to our grands. Because of our ties to the entertainment industry over the years, Peg and I will often quote or recall some famous performer in an effort to prove a point or revisit a special occasion. I might say for example, ‘As Will Rogers once said’… whereupon one of my grands would chime in…’Who is Will Rogers, Papa?’ Who indeed? Then I don’t have to tell you… do I? Rogers, (November 4, 1879–August 15, 1935), was an American cowboy, vaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator, and motion picture actor, beloved by most Americans. Rogers died in an air crash in Alaska. The $64 dollar Question was a popular radio show that sprang from its predecessor, Take It Or Leave It, (April 1940 to July 1947). Three names became household words from the show's run; Gary and Jack Paar (beginning is June 1950). As the contestant progressed, each question was more difficult and with each correct answer, the money doubled until it reached $64… a sizable sum in those days. The term “That's the $64 question” became a common phrase applied to anything that proved difficult. All that happened in the 40s and 50s—all ancient history. By 1955, and the advent of TV, the reworked show had become The $64,000 Question and was generating enormous audiences. Howie Mandel said, “This is the $64,000 question.” Other quiz successes followed during TV’s golden era: Twenty Questions, Tic-Tac-Dough, Deal Or No

Deal, (radio version), You Bet Your Life with Grocho Marks and a host of others.

Happy Talk …by George & Peggy Goldtrap Then along came hugely popular, TwentyOne, and The Charles Van Doren cheating scandal. That became Q&A television’s death knell which lasted for several years. The scandal became a successful movie. Ah… show biz. Q&A’s didn’t really come back ‘big’ until, Jeopardy, The Wheel, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Among the youth they are challenged by hand held electronic games requiring some hand skills but little learning. ‘What's the Wheel Papa? Another phrase that hangs in my old broadcast noggin is ‘Give that Man, 10 silver dollars’! (What’s a silver dollar, Papa?) Remember Dr. I.Q? Assistants roamed the audience looking for contestants and then reported to the host…’I have a lady in the balcony doctor! The lady, (or gentleman) would be asked general questions of Dr I.Q. and correct answers got them silver dollars and a box of Mars bars. I recently gave some old silver dollars to a couple of grandsons and they were the first such coins they had ever seen. They were startled to learn that they were worth much more than a dollar. Now imagine, with your greatest mental energies, when your great-grands will be asking, ‘'What’s a digital camera, Papa’? Or maybe, ‘What’s a space lab, Papa? Or, who is Ronald Reagan, Papa'? Use these precious fleeting moments to share a little history… before the grands grow up and discover they know everything and you know almost nothing. Tell ’em everything you read in the encyclopedia. 'What’s an encyclopedia Papa?' ST

Benefits Of Group Personal Training

W

illiam H. Danforth said, “Our most valuable possessions are those which can be shared without lessening those which, when shared, multiply.” There are many things in the world which if shared with others yield more fun and excitement. Watching movies, eating out, traveling, and sightseeing are experiences that are enhanced when you share them with people. The same truth holds for group personal training. Fitness professionals and researchers feel that group workouts can provide many advantages. One of the primary benefits is safety. There are many people who join a fitness facility but are unaware of how to use the equipment and need direction on how to workout. All this can be overwhelming in the beginning and act as a big deterrent. Also, if you do not have the right knowledge on how to use the equipment it can have undesirable effects like delayed results or injury. The second benefit that you reap from a group training class is that it enables you to save a lot of money. Hiring a trainer is quite an expensive affair and not everyone can afford hiring a personal trainer. Since a personal trainer works for the entire group the cost of hiring him would be borne by the group as a whole. Therefore it would cost you much, much less

in comparison to the cost of retaining a personal trainer on your own. Another benefit that you reap from group training is the constant motivation and encouragement from fellow classmates. When working out on their own many people tend to lose interest in their

fitness program. When you join group training, you’re getting a complete support system that is built in to motivate and encourage you to carry on with your exercises and fitness routines. This is extremely helpful for those dull days when you are just not in a mood of exercising. With group training you can invite whichever family members, friends, and colleagues you’d like to join you and hire an experienced trainer together. Once you start working out with others you’ll see that time shared really does multiply benefits.

ary and Charlie Mitchell had planned on celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary at the Outback Steakhouse, just as they had celebrated their 59th anniversary, but even the best laid plans don’t always work out. Mary, 77, is being treated at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center for a lung infection and the Ormond Beach couple couldn’t celebrate the way they had originally planned. However, the hospital staff still made sure Mary and Charlie had steak for their special day. The hospital café prepared a steak dinner for the happy couple, complete with asparagus and mashed potatoes, and, best of all, cake! The nursing staff clapped and congratulated the couple as they delivered the surprise meal. Mary and Charlie toasted one another with a glass of sparkling apple cider. “This is so amazing; words cannot express how I feel right now,” Mary said. “Doing something like this is unusual, but you can expect it from this hospital.” After 60 years the couple has four children, 10 grandchildren, and 10 greatgrandchildren.

Acupuncture And Weight Loss

A

ccording to the Center for Disease Control, healthcare costs associated with obesity are reaching $150 billion annually. In the United States, obesity is responsible for more than 300,000 deaths a year making it the leading killer of Americans because of its associations to diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol, sleep apnea, asthma, and heart disease. Many Americans get frustrated with dieting because they are unable to keep the weight off. They lose some weight only to gain it right back. As a result, these diets are not effective in achieving or maintaining an ideal weight in the long run. The addition of acupuncture treatments to a sensible regimen of healthy eating and exercise is a break-through in weight management. Gaining popularity in the United States, it enables an individual to lose weight gradually and keep it off. It is important to find a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) who also has a thorough knowledge of nutrition and specific exercises focused on burning abdominal fat, increasing metabolic rates, and enhancing energy level. Many Americans crave sweet, salty, and fried foods which are unhealthy and may lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack, and stroke. Acupuncture curbs food cravings. Acupuncture also helps with stress and mood, which are known to be triggers of overeating behaviors. The benefits include better digestion,

increased metabolism, a balanced central nervous system, a stronger immune system, and a deeper sense of relaxation and general well-being. These benefits are being validated through research all over the world.

Acupuncture & Skin Care …by Dr. Lorenzo Phan OMD, A.P. Individual nutrition counseling will focus on making healthier food choices. Foods with high water content are especially important because they have an impact on satiety. These foods have larger volume but relatively fewer calories. Foods naturally rich in water include fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, cooked grains, lean meats, poultry, fish, and beans. By staying on a plan with healthy food choices, individuals can lose weight. Exercise also delivers countless benefits to one’s general health. The different forms of exercises that we incorporate into our program are Tai Chi, Chi Gong, yoga, Pilates, cardiovascular, and strength and flexibility training. The wonderful things you can achieve from this unique program are a beautiful body, a relaxed mind, and optimal health. For information, contact the Acupuncture & Skin Care Clinic, 725 W.

Dale Woodward Funeral Homes— Where reasonable price meets quality service

hen we first got married my husband, Geno, and I lived in a garage. You may be thinking that we lived in a garage that had been converted into an actual room with real walls and some proper insulation, but that wasn't the case. It was just a regular old garage—the only modification being a large gray carpet scrap on the ground to keep the concrete from feeling quite so cold. The room was furnished with a bed, topped by several colorful striped Mexican blankets, and a worn, dirty-looking, off-white sofa obtained at a yard sale. A very old, very ugly, solid darkwood dresser stood in one corner. Despite the lack of luxury accommodations, our lives there in the garage, huddled under the blankets, was completely smitten. In the mornings, we would wake up and enter the actual house. We'd go into the kitchen, where, with lavish attention to detail, Geno would make me coffee. In the early years—before the careers, before our two kids, and before illness ever touched our lives—back in the days when we both seemed to have a lot more time and energy, the act of Geno making my morning coffee was quite elaborate. First, Geno would grind the espresso beans fresh. Then he would carefully pack them into a European-style stovetop espresso maker, which was a complicated contraption of filters, seals, and various parts that I never could seem to put together properly. As we waited for the coffee to percolate, he would separately heat up two mugs of milk. When the coffee had bubbled and brewed, he added it to the steaming milk, creating delicious homemade lattes. Back then, Starbucks wasn't around, and finding a good latte wasn't as simple as driving to the nearest shopping center. Geno's lattes were the best in town, and I started my days feeling satiated by my coffee's warmness. While drinking our morning coffee, we would chat with our various roommates who lived in the house proper, eat some breakfast, and then go back to the garage. As time went on and our overall lives became more complicated, the coffee rou-

tine simplified. After we moved, my parents gave us a fancy Italian espresso machine. We loved it, but who had time to actually use it? So after a while, we bought a regular old Mr. Coffee coffeemaker. We replaced the glass pots when we broke them, which was frequently. Sometimes we even bought the beans preground. After 15 years of sharing our morning coffee and our daily lives, we temporarily uprooted our family and moved to Spain. This was a result of Geno having achieved a six-month sabbatical from his university position. When we arrived in Spain, we were charmed when we opened the kitchen cabinets of our furnished apartment. "Look at this!" Geno exclaimed, holding up a tarnished espresso maker. It was a stovetop European-style, the exact same type that Geno had used when he first started making me coffee 15 years earlier. While in Spain, on sabbatical from our normal lives, we lived in a state of constant escapism, and it was blissful. The external pressures of our typical day-to-day existences simply vanished, and we went back to the essence of our relationship. And each day, as he had throughout our lives together, Geno made my coffee. He once again made my coffee slowly and elaborately—just as he had when we were in our early 20s. There was no Starbucks in Granada, the city in which we were living, and while Spanish espresso is generally quite good, Geno's lattes were still the best. When we left Spain, we returned home —and we returned to reality. We also returned to our regular old Mr. Coffee coffeemaker —which these days boasts an unbreakable stainless-steel pot. Our lives have changed throughout our years together, but one thing has always remained constant. Every morning, as Geno makes my coffee, I am reminded of my husband's exceptional richness, warmth and love. ST

Section B February 3, 2012 Halifax Humane Society—Tails From The Front s we begin the month of February, we realized that we have not yet noted that January was National Walk Your Pet month. In many areas of the country, the weather is not very cooperative with this celebration, but here in Central Florida, it is a perfect time of the year to get in the habit of walking your dog more often. Several animal behaviorists believe that many of your dog’s problems can be helped by providing more structured exercise. As we have discussed previously, taking your

dog for a regular walk can actually help you improve your fitness level as well. Studies have shown that people who commit to regular dog walking are more consistent with their exercise than those who walk with another person, or those with other exercise plans. Some dogs may not like walking on a leash, and will pull on it, making for an uncomfortable walk for both you and them. In this case, a Weiss Walkie may be the solution. The Weiss Walkie is a special leash designed to eliminate leash-pulling without causing pain to the dog. It works by wrap-

ping around the dog’s chest, shifting the center of balance away from its neck. When a dog pulls on its Weiss Walkie, it feels a small amount of pressure against its chest, which naturally causes it to stop pulling and become calm. The Weiss Walkie is available at Halifax Humane Society for both small and large dogs. Donations needed. The Halifax Humane Society relies on donations of all kinds from our community in order to function. One of the ways we are able to meet the needs of homeless animals is through the generosity of people like your-

self donating items frequently used at our shelter. Please go to our website listed below for a list of needed items.

Salt And Pepper Shakers by Larry Cox

Q: Several weeks ago, I found a pair of salt and pepper shakers at a flea market. The set was made by the U.S. Glass Company, and the pattern, in dark amethyst, seems to be California. I paid $25, and the condition is good to excellent. —Robert, Lyons, NY A: Your set was made in about 1900 and probably would retail in the $135 to $150 range. The U.S. Glass Company was actually a consolidation of more than a dozen companies, all based in Pittsburgh. The rare amethyst color is one of the factors that makes your shakers particularly valuable. *** Q: My dad played in several big bands as a sideman in the 1930s. He appeared on numerous recordings, and he is missing at least a dozen cuts he is certain he did. I am scrambling to track down the original 78-rpm issues. Can you help me? —Steve, Binghamton, NY A: Tracking down older recordings can sometimes be difficult. It is becom-

ing hard to find 78s even in thrift shop. One of the better vintage music stores is Richard Gesner's The Music Connection, 1711 South Willow St., Manchester, NH 03103. This is one of New England's largest music stores and is a full-service business. It also maintains a customer want list. Another source is Record Finder, P.O. Box 23060, Glen Allen, VA 23060. *** Q: I have a friend who left me three postcard albums in her will. Some date back to 1903, and one is even made of leather. Who can I contact to find out what this collection is worth? —Lettie, Albuquerque, NM A: The New Mexico postcard club meets about every month in Albuquerque.

Peripheral Neuropathy What is Peripheral Neuropathy? Peripheral neuropathy is a common neurological disorder resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are the nerves connecting your spinal cord and brain to other parts of your body. It may be caused by diseases of the nerves or of a systemic illnesses. What are the common symptoms? Symptoms included weakness, numbness, paresthesia (abnormal sensations such as burning, pricking, or tingling) and pain in the arms, hands, legs, and/or feet. Usually symptoms occur on both sides (both feet or both hands). You may also experience loss of balance and coordination or shooting pain that may be worse at night and extremely sensitivite to touch. In some cases, you may even lose the ability to stand, walk, or hold objects in your hand. Peripheral neuropathy can also affect the nerves that control autonomic functions such as bladder and bowel function. The nerve damage can also make people prone to infections. Treatment Options: In entrapment or compression neuropathy, treatment may consist of splinting, surgical decompression of the ulnar or median nerves, or physical therapy combined with acupunture. Splints may be useful in preventing contractures.

Self Care & Preventions: Avoid illfitting shoes. Keep your feet and hand cool. Massage your hands or feet. Walk with a cane or other form of support to keep your balance. Therapeutic exercise can enhance your of life.

Acupuncture & Physical Therapy by Jack Verhees, P.T.

What is the prognosis? Recovery from peripheral neuropathy is usually slow. Depending on the type of peripheral neuropathy, the patient may fully recover without residual effects or may partially recover with some sensory, motor, or blood vessel deficits. Physical Therapy & Acupuncture: Most neuropathies can be helped with the use of physical therapy and acupuncture. Acupuncture is effective in safely increasing local circulation and reducing the pain associated with neuropathies. By combining acupuncture and therapy, pressure on a nerve can be relieved and patients experience a faster recovery and return to a pain-free lifestyle. If you have questions or need more information, please call 386-615-4800.

Stop Pain Now With Acupuncture and Physical Therapy Effective, Affordable….Amazing Results! by Clara Davis I had terrible neck and back pain for 30 years. To make matters worse, I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I tried steroid shots, laser therapy, chiropractic, massage, TENS unit, and Physical Therapy (PT) which were all effective for a short period of time. When my Rheumatologist advised me to go for another round of PT, I was hesitant because I didn’t see long-term benefits when I tried it before. As I started treatments with ARC, it didn’t take long for me to realize that the physical therapy I got was different since it incorporated the acupuncture. My pain started to wither away. I noticed that I was able to eat without pain and bend my elbows with ease. Even the simple task of opening bottles and grasping a fork were not terrible chores anymore. To top it all, treatments were affordable! Bring this Ad to your first visit to receive a 50% discount for the initial Acupuncture Treatment.

fter a long winter’s hiatus, my friend, Lloyd, and I decided that we would go on our first fishing trip of the spring season. All of our trips start with a stop by Hardee’s for a couple of sausage biscuits to ward off the hunger pains of the hour or so drive. Little did we know that a series of events that morning would give us a story we would be telling for years to come. Now, if you have ever wondered where the end of the earth is, I believe we were at least close to it when we reached the Riversticks boat landing. That landing is as far west as you can go by vehicle. Once there we decided the water was low high to fish and opted to drive over to the Ochlockonee River. After driving a bit we came around a curve and something was lying in the road. “That’s a body,” Lloyd said as he slowed the truck down.We stopped in the middle of the road at that point. There in the middle of this wide graded road laid a person. We drove to within 60 or so feet and stopped again. I yelled out the window and couldn’t get a rise out this body in the road. The body was stretched across the road covering most of the east bound lane. There was a knapsack of sorts next to the body. The hands were crossed in the front with one hand under some clothing. It was dressed in clothes that you normally see on cyclists. It appeared to be very thin and lying on one side facing us. It had long hair. One conspicuous item that really stood the hair up on the back of my neck was a lone set of tracks that were very fresh and appeared to go by the body. Now, I don’t know what you would do, but here is what we did. We could not see any movement from the body. I searched the woods for someone who might be laying in wait for us if we approached the body. Every conceivable synopsis went through our minds: From this person actually being dead, which meant we did not want to disturb a possible crime scene, to the person laying in wait to rob or shoot us and steal our vehicle. We also thought that it might be a body from a recent hit-and-run or another half dozen possible weird and unusual scenarios that could have happened. Our cell phones would not work that far out—and so close to the end of the earth. Lloyd turned the truck around and we went back to the main highway. We then drove back to the a little store we passed earlier to call 911. The store owner thought that the person could possibly be a hitchhiker who he had

allowed to spend the night in a shed behind the store the night before. The owner described the hitchhiker was a long-haired young man that was headed to Wakulla County and asked how to get there. The store owner had sent the young man in the direction we had seen the body in.

Winding Roads …by Byron Spires

I then talked to 911, who sent a deputy to the scene. We drove back to the crossroads and waited about ten minutes for a deputy. Lloyd seemed to be concerned that the body would not be there when we returned, and we would look like a couple of fools. Personally it did not bother me, because we had both seen it at the same time and, even though fishermen have a tendency to tell tall tales, this did not quite fit the category of fish tales. The deputy came and we told him all about the body we had seen and followed him to the location. The deputy left us in a cloud of dust and as we approached the area where we had seen the body we could see his car stopped in the road and the body had moved about 50 feet down the road and was alive! Thankfully, it was not a dead body, as we found out, but some misguided soul on a long trip to nowhere who just happened to lay down in the middle of the road. As for Lloyd and me, we went on fishing and, except for the couple of fish we caught, nothing else unusual happened that day. Oh yeah, we did share our extra sausage biscuits with the fellow. He did look kind of hungry at the time. ST You can contact Byron Spires via email at windingroads@netzero.com or check out his blog at byronspires. wordpress.com

Exercise Your Back To Decrease Your Pain!

I

n the past, we were told to rest and to avoid exercise in order to nurture an injured back. The truth is that this approach actually contributes to greater harm and increased pain because the muscles that support the back become weak and de-conditioned. Today, chronic back sufferers are strongly encouraged to be as physically active as they can endure. Whether to decrease pain, strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, or to improve mobility and posture a wide range of preventative and therapeutic back exercises are available such as flexion (bending forward) or extension (bending backward) exercise which are the most widely recommended. Many different conditions can be the cause of your back pain, exercise routines are not a one size fits all concept. Exercises must be varied and the routine individualized, depending on your primary condition such as spinal stenosis, herniated disc, arthritis, or muscle sprain. For people with a herniated disc or with leg pain in a seated position, flexion type exercises are not recommended. However, for spinal stenosis, for lower back pain with prolonged standing that is relieved by sitting or with bending backward that is relieved by bending forward, flexion type exercises are very beneficial.

On the other hand, if you have lower back pain with prolonged sitting or driving, with bending forward, or with rising from a chair, or leg pain with prolonged sitting that is relieved by walking, extension type exercises are the right choice because they help strengthen the muscles along the spine and improve flexibility.

Where Does It Hurt? by Dr. Yong Tsai

Proper exercises that when performed on a regular basis can minimize back pain caused by degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, or disc herniation, that can also strengthen the muscles in your back, abdomen, hips and thighs, all while making them more flexible. Whether you decide to design an exercise routine on your own or to be evaluated by your physician or by a physical therapist it is imperative to avoid additional damage by choosing the wrong exercises. Whatever your approach, your goal is to find the exercises that suit your individual needs and to give your back the work out it needs. For more information, please call Dr. Tsai at 386-676-0307.

local alliance made up of community-based, not-forprofit organizations serving seniors is planning a free event aimed at letting caregivers know they are not alone. The event, Self Care For The Caregiver, will feature guest speaker Mark Spivey, a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in dealing with fatigue in the home and work environment. “Caregivers are an at risk and underserved population,” said PULSE board chairman Mark Tellier of the Council on Aging. “The stress placed on someone who cares for a disabled or elderly family member is tremendous,” he said, “and we want caregivers to know there are resources and help available in the community.” The event will take place February 10, 2012 from 10 A.M. until NOON at the Port Orange YMCA, 4701 City Center Parkway, Port Orange. Caregivers may make reservations by calling 386760-9622 or e-mailing bjohnson@vfy mca.org Seating is limited.

An Evening Of Hope And Healing Special to Seniors Today

O

ver 600 individuals attend a special seminar and received an evening of hope and healing from world-renowned speaker Dr. Alan Wolfelt, Ph.D., C.T. in December. Sponsored by Lohman Funeral Homes, in cooperation with Prince of Peace Catholic Church and area hospice organizations, the two free community programs took place at Prince of Peace in Ormond Beach. Dr. Wolfelt is committed to helping people mourn well, so they can live well and love well. The evening program—Healing Your Grieving Heart When Someone You Love Has Died—focused on recognizing unique aspects of personal grief, defining special needs in five domains of loss, understanding the importance of self-care, exploring the transformative nature of grief, and having hope for healing. Dr. Wolfelt also led a morning seminar—Exploring The Dimensions Of Adult Grief: The Caregiver's Role—for area hospice volunteers, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other care providers. The workshop gave an in-depth look at the dimensions of adult grief and the helping role. Participants also explored a model of grief care anchored in “companioning” versus “treating” the mourner. With so much positive feedback from those who attended the programs, Lohman

Be Cautious At The ATM

S

topping by an ATM to quickly pick up some cash is something people do on a regular basis. Unfortunately, it has become such a commonplace task that many people aren’t aware of some possible dangers. One such danger is illustrated by a case involving a 79-year-old man and his 77-year-old wife who withdrew money from an ATM at a DeLand bank. It was about 6:30 on a Saturday night when they finished their transaction and walked away. Before getting to the relative safety of their car, though, two men confronted them at knifepoint, demanding their money. The robbers snatched cash along with the male victim’s wallet and ran away. Fortunately, no one was hurt during the incident. It was a frightening experience for the victims, but they did the right thing by obeying the robbers’ demands, remembering what the men looked like, and reporting it immediately to 911. They were wise to keep in mind that money is not worth getting hurt over. Here are some tips to keep in mind when using ATMs: Be aware of your surroundings, especially at night. If anything or anyone looks suspicious, come back later or use another machine. For example, watch for two or more people in a nearby vehicle hanging around for no apparent purpose, especially if the ATM is unattended. If someone else is using the ATM when you arrive, give the person space. If during your turn someone seems to be crowding you, ask the person to step back. If he doesn’t respect your request, cancel your transaction, then leave or wait in your locked car for the person to leave. Also, you should decline any offers from someone else to “go ahead” of him. Trust your instincts. It’s better to leave and look silly than to become another statistic. Stay alert the whole time you are using the ATM. Look up and around

every so often. Have your ATM card ready and in your hand as you approach the ATM. You are easy prey for a thief

while you are fumbling with a wallet or purse at the machine. It’s also advisable to keep a supply of deposit envelopes at home or in your car so that you can prepare all of your paperwork ahead of time. This will minimize the time spent standing at the machine. Be careful that no one can see you enter your PIN at the ATM. Use your body to block others’ view. To keep your account information confidential, always take your receipts or transaction records with you when you are done, even if you usually just throw them away. It’s not safe to leave your receipt behind if it shows how much you withdrew or what your account balance is. Also, memorize your PIN. Don’t write it on your ATM card or on anything in your wallet. Immediately put your money in your pocket or purse and count it later. If you are using a drive-up ATM, keep your engine running, be sure the passenger windows are rolled up and all your doors are locked. If you leave your car and walk to the ATM, park close to the machine in a well-lit area and lock your car. Take another person with you, if at all possible. Try to use the ATM during daylight hours. It’s safer. If you have to use the ATM at night, and the lights aren’t working or if there is overgrown shrubbery or trees blocking your view of the surroundings, use a different ATM. Then notify your bank about the danger so they can correct the problem. ST
