This month’s newsletter will begin on a somber note. James Anthony Russell, more affectionately known to all of us as “Jim,” who served as the first CEO of Brunswick Senior Resources Inc. from 2002 to 2010, has passed away at the age of 74. Jim was born in Nobber, a village in Ireland’s County of Meath. He lived in service to the community and for the good of others. His work with the Catholic Church brought him to Florida in 1967, where he served the parish community of Jacksonville’s Assumption Catholic Church and was a teacher at Bishop Kenny High School. In 1973, he began a 25-year association with the United Way of America when he accepted a position in Tampa as their director of agency relations, later moving to Tallahassee and taking on the executive director role of the United Way of Big Bend. He moved to North Carolina in 1990, building the United Way of Greater Durham until it was merged with Raleigh and Chapel Hill branches into the Triangle United Way, where he was the Vice President of Community Initiatives. Following that, he spent several years as executive director of the Durham County Hospital

Corporation’s Foundation for Better Health of Durham. In 2002, he moved to Brunswick County where he was instrumental in the founding of Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc.

to find out more.

If you are concerned about your health and weight, Medicare can help you get started on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

Medicare covers a one-time “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam for individuals new to Medicare. This exam includes:

In the United States, over 69 percent of adults are considered to be overweight or obese. People find it hard to find time to exercise and do not always prepare balanced meals. Another contributing factor is the fact that we rely heavily on our vehicles rather than walking.

A review of your medical and social history including risk factors that you can change

A physical exam that includes measuring your height, weight, blood pressure, visual acuity, and body mass index

Education, counseling, and referrals based on the results of your physical exam

A brief written plan for getting appropriate screening and/or other Medicare Part B preventive services

A review of your potential risk factors for depression

An unhealthy body weight can increase your risk of having serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and even some types of cancer. Medicare covers obesity screening and counseling. These behavioral counseling sessions can help you lose weight if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. In order to have the counseling covered by Medicare, it would need to occur in a primary care setting (like a doctor’s office), you would need to have a BMI of 30 or greater, and you would need to have Medicare Part B. You can talk to your primary care doctor or practitioner

Once you’ve had Medicare Part B longer than 12 months, you are eligible for an annual wellness exam. This will help you to develop or update your prevention plan, based on your current health and risk factors. So, go out and enjoy our beautiful sunshine and get healthy today!

runswick County has many bridges. Some cross highways and waterways, but there is a bridge in Bolivia that crosses over land into luscious, abundant strawberry fields that lead to strawberry delight. It’s the bridge that leads to the strawberry field at Brunswick Berries and Produce, the newest location for the favorite fruit of spring. In 2012, John McGee moved to Bolivia from Wilmington and opened a successful Lawn Doctor franchise on 11 acres of land. This venture returned John to his agricultural roots; he grew up in rural Anson County. His newest venture is

Brunswick Berries and Produce, LLC.

Melissa Hight, retired educator and county director with NCSU's Extension Service, joined the team to help with marketing and setting up the retail sales area. Ivy Reid, also a retired county director, lends her expertise and creativity to berries and bee products exclusive to Brunswick Berries. The friendly staff, Jane Saunders, Wendy Cifetli, and Steve Davidson welcomes everyone with a smile. Visitors find Brunswick Berries

a place of beauty and tranquility. Adults and children enjoy shopping for handcrafted items, jams, jellies, honey, kitchen gadgets, and seasonal plants and herbs. There are ready-picked berries or you can pick your own. Crossing the bridge to pick the berries is a fun adventure. After berry picking, children receive a free helium balloon. “We strive to make our farm a fun place for family and friends to gather, not just a place to pick juicy, delicious strawberries,” McGee said. "Because we are local and our fruit is picked at its height of ripeness, you will notice the difference.”


Out and About Knowledge, expertise and hard work are required to turn nostalgia into reality. To start Brunswick Berries, McGee cleared land, solved drainage, and installed irrigation. Next came construction of the bridge and customer service areas, then parking and electricity. McGee prepared soil during 2016 and planted strawberries in October. In spring 2017, Brunswick Berries and Produce opened for business. Brunswick Berries uses an annual “plasticulture” system of growing that was developed in California in the 1970s. Rows are formed each fall and covered in black plastic to warm the soil. Planting begins in October. Brunswick Berries plant varieties are Camarosa, common to southeastern N.C., and Camino

Real, a newer variety ̶ ̶ both noted for flavor, quality and size. The main strawberry harvest depends on the weather, but usually happens between March and early June. Strawberry fields, like other farming, has many challenges. Deer, rabbits, pests, and fungus are not strangers. Plants had to be covered in March to protect the plants from freezing. April sent high winds and lots of rain which damaged berries, resulting in a quick sellout of the berries that survived. John relies on the experience of an old friend and horticulturist, Al Hight, to meet these challenges. Brunswick Berries & Produce is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 1726 Southport-Supply Road in Bolivia. For more information, call (910) 622-4363 or go to Brunswick Berries on Facebook.

Kids cross the bridge to do some strawberry picking at Brunswick Berries. Front row, left to right: Oliva Jessup, Cooper Jessup, and Meric Barber. Second Row: Kellan Barber, Kaylie Shelor, Tina Jessup, and Gage Shelor. Third row: Megan Barber, Gennie Shelor.

Senior Spotlight

By Barbara Sammons

jet-set crowd of the 60s.

hat do you do on a lazy Sunday afternoon? When I was growing up in Southern California, my father would take us to the Los Angeles International Airport to watch the airplanes land and take off. He had a passion for aviation.

In 1965 Franklin was drafted into the Air Force. In 1974, he began a 20-year career aboard Air Force One as a flight steward. He is the only flight steward who has worked consecutively for five U.S. presidents: Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton.

As I walked into the Cape Fear Regional Jetport for my meeting with director Howie Franklin, I could sense the vibe in the office: a sense of pride and passion for the world of aviation.

In 1994, Franklin was named Director of the Cape Fear Regional Jetport. His wife Linda is originally from Southport and also worked as an administrative assistant on Air Force One during the Carter and Reagan administrations.

W

“People are your most important resources,” Franklin says. “As a leader, show your employees you are concerned about their happiness.” The jetport employs three full-time and four fill-in staff.

Franklin grew up on Long Island in Bayport, New York. He spent summers on Fire Island transporting luggage from ferry docks to rented beach villas. At age 16, he worked at the Talisman Yacht Club, popular with the

Yes Sir! Mr. President is Franklin’s memoir of his time in the Air Force and life aboard Air Force One, captured on the pages by co-author Mark Grady. In this book, Franklin shares his many stories about working around presidents, first ladies, vice presidents, cabinet secretaries, VIP guests, and the U.S. press corps.

Cape Fear Regional Jetport sits on 197 acres of land


Senior Spotlight just off Long Beach Road. The runway is 5,505 feet long and 100 feet wide with a parallel taxiway. As a general aviation airport, the Cape Fear Regional Jetport generates economic activity, commerce, and tourism. In 2016, a NC DOT economic impact study estimated the airport had an annual economic impact of $215 million, of which the county government received $5.9 million. The jetport attracts diverse aircraft including Global Express, Gulfstream, ultralights, and helicopters both military and civilian. The Coast Guard, law enforcement, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife use it and it provides helicopter support for Frying Pan Tower. Retired individuals in the area take comfort in knowing about the jetport’s Aerovac operations. “In any given week, there may be up to 12 Aerovac operations which involve medical transportation of an ill, disabled, or injured person,” Franklin says. “This service is available 24 hours a day to anyone in need.” “If we ever have a catastrophic event, the jetport can be set up with tents to serve as hospitals and supply depots,” Franklin says. “Our runway will accommodate a C-17 cargo jet to bring in supplies.”

Cape Fear Regional Jetport director Howie Franklin and his friend Daphne monitor aviation at the Oak Island airport.

There are 19 businesses located at the jetport, including a car rental, helicopter flight instruction and air tours, fixed wing aircraft rentals, and a flight school. There are two full aircraft maintenance shops and a full avionics shop.

Franklin says. The N.C. Department of Transportation is funding the majority of the project which is expected to cost around $3 million.

The Brunswick County Airport Commission has approved plans for a 5,000-square-foot terminal to be located on the northwest side of the property just off Airport Road.

Franklin’s dream is to build an air traffic controller school that would be operated by the Brunswick Community College. At an estimated cost of $2 million, it may be some time before this dream is realized, but Franklin will continue his quest to fulfill that dream because he has a passion for aviation—and it shows.

“Once the bid for sewer and water are secure, then we will bid out for the construction of the terminal,”

Featured Events . . . Items of Interest NEW! Line Dancing Class starts Tuesday, May 3rd at 2:30pm. This popular activity is so much fun, we’ve added another class! The great things about line dancing are you don’t need a partner, you don’t need special clothing or equipment, you don’t need to be an athlete or dancer—you don’t need anything but YOU! And, while you’re movin’ and groovin’ you’re burning calories and getting fit without even noticing. Same great instructors and, as always, a variety of awesome music—not just “country.” May is Older Americans Month! Celebrate with us at the center on Tuesday, May 16th. This year’s theme, Age Out Loud, is intended to give aging a new voice—one that reflects what today’s older adults have to say about aging. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They expect to continue to live their lives to the fullest, and they’re insisting on changes that make that possible. What it means to age has changed, and this month is a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today. (Source: acl.gov) Memorial Day Celebration, Friday, May 26th. Please drop by any time during the day and bring pictures and stories to share of loved ones who served (or are serving) our country. If you can’t stop by, please pause to give thanks for the vets who secured our freedom and to remember the families of the fallen who live with the impact of lost loved ones every day. As the poignant saying goes, “All Gave Some. Some Gave All.” If you fly the US flag, here’s the proper way: fly at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raise briskly to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation's battle heroes. (Source: US Dept. of Veterans Affairs) Congratulations, graduates of our March Matter of Balance class! Thank you for taking time to learn how to create a safer environment to prevent falls and what to do if a fall is unavoidable.

Caregiver’s Support Group meets every Tuesday at 10am. Jennifer Sherman, B.S., M.A., Dir. of Case Mgmt. will moderate. The group offers a safe place to discuss resources, the stresses, challenges, and rewards of providing care for a loved one. Cinco de Mayo Party, Friday, May 5th. Cinco de Mayo was once a celebration of a military victory over France. Today, in the US, it is a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture! Mother’s Day Party Friday, May 12th. We’ll celebrate motherhood (and “grandmotherhood”). Bring your “brag book” and share stories about raising children and all that motherhood encompasses. Begin the Conversation! Wednesday, May 10th, 10:30am - Noon. Haylie Long of Lower Cape Fear Hospice will talk about your Living Will and Health Care Directives and Power of Attorney. Make sure your wishes are carried out if you are hospitalized or incapacitated. Notary available.

Ongoing Events Weekly Update/ Sip ‘n Chat Share your questions, suggestions, or comments every Monday at 10:30am and every third Thursday at 11am. Coffee’s hot and free!

Blood Pressure Check RN Rebecca Green of Amedisys Hospice will be here every 1st and 3rd Friday at 10:30am. No appointment needed.

Celebrate Birthdays

Celebrate these special days with us on the last Friday of every month. We’ll sing, eat cake, and have fun. Party hat and dancing optional.

Loose Change Challenge Thanks very much to everyone who puts a little “jingle” in our donation bottle! Your loose change adds up and helps support senior programs here at the Shallotte center.

Movie Day LAST SHOWING of “Brooklyn,” Friday, May 19th at 11am! Free admission, popcorn and candy. Soft drinks and water available for purchase.

—An NC Certified Senior Center of Excellence— Anne Gass, Center Director Kathy Gehlhardt, Assistant Director Tai Chi instructor Dean Sutzer proudly holds a porcelain “Samurai Warrior” replica which was presented to him for his recent birthday by Shallotte center member and award-winning doll artist, Julia Wheeler (below, far left, standing). Julia worked for about a year crafting the doll and costume to get them “just right.” The doll acknowledges Dean’s talents in the arena of martial arts which includes the art of the Samurai Sword. He currently teaches a Silver Samurai class designed for seniors at the Southport center and soon hopes to offer the class through BSRI in the Shallotte/Supply area.
