ay is Older Americans Month, and we love this year’s theme: Connect, Create, Contribute (see next page). At BSRI, our goals include bringing Brunswick County seniors together to do just these things. The Brunswick Senior Buzz is part of that, and we’d like you to consider us your own magazine— a place to connect, create, and contribute. Connect by sharing your knowledge of people, places, and events with us. Create by writing or photographing some of our stories. Contribute to the Buzz! It’s easy— all the cool kids are doing it. We have volunteer meetings where we share ideas for creating upcoming stories. Some people like to connect by sharing what they know about our Thrift Store Throwback stories. The Coastal Carolina Camera Club and other area amateur photographers contribute many of our covers and inside photos, making the Buzz a much more attractive publication. Want to join us, or do you have other ideas for connecting, creating, or contributing? Celebrate Older Americans month by letting us know. Drop us a note at buzz@bsrinc.org.

Thoughts from a Director

Older Americans Month

S

pring has sprung! So much is bursting with new life and new energy. That’s why I think it’s fitting that May is Older Americans Month (OAM).

Photo by Kermit Cox

“My wife takes great pride and effort to see that we have a verdant and colorful park-like atmosphere in our back yard,” says Kermit Cox, this month’s cover photographer. “Suzanne is responsible for all of our yard design, front and back, including perennials, annuals, exotics, and tropical additions. The butterflies and other friends seem to like it.” This Gulf fritillary was a visitor to the Coxs’ colorful back yard.

Retirement and later life can be a time of reinvention and renewal as individuals create new communities, explore new interests, and find new purpose. This year’s OAM theme is Connect, Create, Contribute. We hope you’ll use this month as an opportunity to renew your approach to how you interact with BSRI and the larger Brunswick County community. The Administration for Community Living encourages the following for this year’s OAM: 

Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.

Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

Veronica Lett-McGee, Director The Brunswick Center at Leland 

Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

All of these can be accomplished at your nearest senior center. CONNECT by taking a class, chatting with friends over congregate lunch, or just grabbing a cup of coffee with someone new. CREATE a OAM, continued on page 6

T

he North Carolina Senior Tar Heel Legislature (STHL) convened its first session of 2019 at the Rural Center in Raleigh in March. The theme of advocating for seniors was apparent with each speaker. Seniors are an increasing part of our population and there is an obvious decline in services and supports, including caregivers.

Joyce Massey-Smith, Director, Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) gave an update. She recognized Dorothy Crawford, a member of the STHL who was 101 in April. The Dorothy R. Crawford Award, given this year in Ms. Crawford’s honor, will be the first award named after a woman. Massey-Smith also shared information about Adult Protective Services (APS). County departments of social services received 30,000 complaints this past year, a significant increase since last year, she said.

Audie Lowrimore, Brunswick County’s delegate to the N.C. Senior Tar Heel Legislature, attended the group’s first 2019 session in March.

Later in the program, Charmaine Fuller-Cooper, Associate State Director, N.C. AARP, presented the Andrus award to the STHL’s Past Speaker, Althea Taylor-Jones. “One person can make a difference,” Fuller-Cooper said. There are 1.3 million unpaid caregivers in North Carolina. AARP is supporting them with the North Carolina Caregivers Act (House Bill 269/ Senate Bill 161), known as the three I’s:

On the second day of the meeting, STHL members met their legislators at the General Assembly and advocated for the STHL’s top five priorities, including:

IDENTIFY caregivers on hospital admissions.

INFORM caregivers.

Increase funding for North Carolina Home and Community Care Block Grant.

INCLUDE and INSTRUCT caregivers upon discharge.

Maintain and increase funding for senior centers.

Increase funding for Project CARE (Caregiver Alternatives to Running on Empty).

Strengthen and fund North Carolina’s Adult Protective Services program.

Increase staff-to-patient ratios in nursing homes.

AARP has also partnered with the United Way to provide a means of helping people find healthcare in rural areas by establishing “DIAL 211.”

Roger Manus, chair of the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging, gave a presentation on advocacy. “The advocate must recognize that they are a part of something bigger than themselves. We are resources of the Older Americans Act (OAA), a part of a larger movement that will continue long after we are gone. We devote ourselves to something we will never see the conclusion of this

lifetime,” Manus said.

The STHL promotes citizen involvement and advocacy concerning aging issues and the needs of older adults before the General Assembly by convening a forum modeled after the North Carolina General Assembly. For more information, please visit STHL on Facebook or go to www.ncsthl.org. —Norma Duncan, STHL

Volunteers’ Night Out 2019 Great Music Our annual volunteer appreciation night wouldn't be complete without fantastic, live music! This year we invited Rick and Lesa with the Rick and Lesa Duo. They gave everyone at the event a good show, with their original music and beachy vibe its was hard not to get out on the dance floor.

Good Company Volunteers’ Night Out had the best turnout in 4 years. Over 260 volunteers and their guests attended! This is proof that our volunteer base is growing and our organization and its reach is expanding.

Amazing Support This appreciation event wouldn't be possible without the help of many BSRI staff members and a few dedicated event planning volunteers. Administrative/event planning volunteers made this night a success. BSRI Volunteers Linda, Eunice, and Cathi donated their time multiple days a week for months to collect door prizes, secure table decorations, and assist with putting everything together before the event. It was so inspiring to see the dedication and professionalism these volunteers put into making the night wonderful!

Community Involvement We had over 60 donated door prizes from local businesses all over Brunswick County. We are so happy to be able to connect our volunteers to local businesses! It was so refreshing to have community support. We hope to continue to work with the community and gain even more support for next year.

The Future The future of this event is exciting. We hope to have more volunteers in attendance each year. If event planning is your niche, please let us know! As this event grows we will need volunteers to assist in making it a success.


Senior Spotlight

A Book for Nana A Conversation with Kathe Mueller Slonim By Holly Tate

K

athe Slonim smiles with her eyes, which are a pretty blue. On being introduced to a visitor at the Brunswick Center at Southport, she offers a hand with a firm grip. “My pleasure,” she says, in response to a greeting. Kathe is a mother of three, grandmother of seven, greatgrandmother of three, and the recipient of a book created by her family as both a personal history and a tribute to their nana. We received permission to share some of Kathe’s

story this month, which is Jewish American Heritage Month.

I was born on July 1, 1927, in Stuttgart, Germany, (where I) went to public school. One day, when I was in second grade, I was called to the principal’s office and told that I could no longer stay at the school because I was Jewish. My parents, Adolf and Betty Mueller, took me to the Jewish school at their synagogue. Kathe’s father was a dry goods merchant in Stuttgart. The family worshipped at the Stuttgartner

Synagogue, where Kathe attended school, with friends and family nearby. Adolf Mueller was a patriotic German who had fought in World War I and believed his military experience would exempt him from the increasing danger posed by the Nazis. He did not want to leave his country, but the regime made Jewish survival in Germany impossible.

The Nazis systematically removed Jews from all political and economic life, seizing Jewish assets and properties (including Mr. Mueller’s business and car). The Nazis demanded that all Jews turn in their jewelry and silverware. My mother bought new silverware, candlesticks, bowls, etc., and substituted them for hers so she did not have to give up (what) had been my grandmother’s. She hid the items in soapboxes, which she carefully sealed up so they looked new and unopened. After Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass, November 9-10, 1938), when mobs attacked Jewish persons and property, the Nazis set a goal to completely eliminate the Jewish people.

Kathe Mueller Slonim’s family created a book to memorialize her experience with the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. The book recalls her family’s troubles in Germany and journey to the U.S.

On the morning of November 10, 1938, I was on my way to school when (I was told) my synagogue


Senior Spotlight and school had been burned down. I was very frightened and ran all the way home. I found my mother screaming and crying. The Gestapo had taken my father away to a concentration camp … Dachau. Kathe’s mother was scared, but she found a way to protect her daughter as the Nazis continued to gain power. She sent her to a Catholic girls’ summer camp. No one knew Kathe was Jewish.

Mrs. Mueller’s cousin, Max Rosenfeld, lost his government job, as Jews were no longer permitted to hold these positions or possess property, businesses, jewelry, or money. As more and more Jews were taken to concentration camps, he knew he must find a different way. Max Rosenfeld had his Jewish nationality annulled by the Nazis and became Max Immanuel. It was late at night. Max Immanuel used his old identification as a government official to get through every Nazi checkpoint. At the gates of Dachau, he (had) the prisoner Adolf Mueller brought to him. The guards saw official documents and brought out my father. (Cousin Max and my father) quickly returned to Stuttgart and the Catholic church to retrieve me and, with my mother, my family was reunited.

More than 115,000 Jews emigrated from the Reich in the 10 months following Kristallnacht. The Muellers were among them. Their destination was the United States, where Kathe’s family in America

Photos by Holly Tate

was making arrangements for their arrival. The Muellers left Germany for Luxembourg in March 1939. They were permitted to leave the country with just $10 each. Supported by one of Kathe’s uncles, the family waited in Luxembourg more than seven months before their travel documents were finalized. Kathe attended a convent school in Grevenmacher and learned to speak French. Finally, she and her parents sailed from Antwerp, Belgium,

aboard the Pennland, arriving in America via Ellis Island on December 24, 1939. Kathe was 12 years old.

Sponsored by family members, Kathe and her parents settled in Albany, New York, and began their new lives. In the late 1940s they became American citizens. Kathe attended Albany public schools and Albany Business NEW LIVES, continued on page 15

M

ay is Older Americans Month, a time to reflect on our time of life and how we spend our time. These books, available at Brunswick County libraries, make for perfect reading this month. Are you finding fulfillment in this stage of your life? Fresh encouragement comes from Hyrum W. Smith’s 2017 Purposeful Retirement: How to Bring Happiness and Meaning to Your Retirement. Whether you’re still working, transitioning from the workplace to the “next place,” or living well as a retiree, the wit and wisdom from others who traveled this road illuminate the possibilities ahead. Rather than “drifting” in retirement, the author stresses being proactive and investing your time in alignment with your purpose and values. Nutshell review: A blueprint for enjoying your second act. Most of our daily activities are unthinking, but nobody has to be locked into mindless behavior. James Clear’s Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones (2018)

draws ideas from biology, psychology, and philosophy to present scientifically-proven methods where small (atomic) steps lead to reallife changes. Imagine altering or adding to your everyday routines to better yourself and your life. My own first application? Instead of standing, waiting for my K-cup to brew—now, I do steps! This book is a gem for reference while appreciating the author’s friendly style. Nutshell review: A system for positive transformation. Identity thieves or financial scammers may see a mature person with a nice nest egg as the perfect mark for exploitation. Factors in aging that could leave us vulnerable— poor health, isolation, and physical or cognitive decline—

are addressed in Safe and Secure: 10 Essential Steps for Seniors to Protect Against Financial Abuse (2018). NFL Hall of Fame quarterback and successful entrepreneur Fran Tarkenton partnered with financial executive Rick Gossett to offer practical steps to mitigate risk in our golden years. This book offers common-sense advice to help us protect ourselves from fraud. Nutshell review: Avoid being a victim—take charge of your own security.

Brunswick County’s five branch libraries are supported by Friends of the Library groups that raise funds, primarily by selling used books at $1 or less. Seniors: you can save money at continuous in-the-library book sales n Leland, Shallotte, and Ocean Isle. In Southport, visit the permanent used bookstore in Southport Realty at 727 N. Howe Street, or shop the monthly sale. On Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the theme is Colorize Your Bookshelf Spring Green, where all green jacketed or covered books are half price.


In the Garden

By Pat Naughton

“W

e really appreciate what you are doing,” shouted three ladies from a car in the parking lot of the Supply Senior Center.

“That’s where the initiative for the six raised gardening beds came from,” said Melissa Starr, Director of the Brunswick Center at Supply. A patron of the center asked for a garden bed to could work in, and she set to work to make that happen.

The community garden project is a partnership between the Brunswick County Center of the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Lindsay Maher of the Brunswick Wellness Coalition, and Melissa Starr of Brunswick Senior Resources Inc. The Wellness Coalition tries to reduce diabetes and obesity in Brunswick County. One way they do this through educating the public on food nutrition and how to shop. Growing healthy fruits and vegetables is another source of nutritious food. Melissa Star reached out to the Cooperative Extension for help with this project.

The raised beds were designed by Extension Master Gardener Vic Stephens. Horticulture Technician Shawn Lennon assisted Stephens in building and delivering the material. The raised beds are made of pressure-treated 2x10 boards with 4x4 posts. The side boards are three high, which brings the top of the bed to 29″, a perfect height for someone to work in from a chair. To prevent water damage to

boards and keep any chemicals in the boards from migrating to the soil, Stephens lined the inside with polypropylene roof underlayment. The roof underlayment is lighter than plastic and has a 30-year life for roofs. Filling a raised bed that high can cause the sides to bow out. To counter this, Stephens installed an electrical conduit across the middle of the raised bed. The end of the conduit is covered by a board and is secured by a screw through the board and conduit.

The raised bed will be filled halfway with mulch then topped off with turkey compost. This compost is made from turkey manure, loam, and bark. Turkey manure is very similar to chicken manure but has a higher content of nitrogen. The high nitrogen content makes it well-suited

for green leafy vegetables. Turkey compost is available in bulk at several garden centers in the area. Raised bed soil mixed with chicken manure or cow manure is a good alternative and are readily available at home improvement stores. Stephens has been building and repairing raised beds in Brunswick County for several years. He is active at New Beginnings Community Church Pantry Garden and works with the Shallotte Middle School greenhouse project. Next on Stephens’ job list is four raised beds for the Calabash Senior Center. N.C. Cooperative Extension is working with the Leland site as well for raised beds. It won’t be long till many of the patrons of the county’s senior centers will be showing up with dirt under their fingernails.

A FAMILIAR FACE AT CALABASH

By Barbara L. Weber As a youngster in Ecuador, Walter Puga always enjoyed playing his favorite game of soccer with friends and his three siblings. After graduating from college in 1960, his wish to visit the U.S. came true. He stayed on to learn English, became a United States citizen in 1964, and serve with the United States Air Force. A loving father of five children, five grandchildren and three greatgrandchildren, Puga loves it when family visit his Ocean Isle Beach home. Most of them live in Virginia. He tells me, “They love the beach.” Walter's two girls wed professional men. One son is a Doctor of Child Psychology, and two sons are Master Electricians. Living with Puga is his beloved shih tzu, “Baby,” that truly lives up to her name. She loves to be pampered and walked each day. Before retirement, Puga worked as an electrician at government buildings and at a plant that was 70% involved with nuclear power. Each day, he and everyone else wore special clothing for protection. At quitting time, all of the workers needed to be checked for contamination. Currently, Walter is champion of corn hole at the Brunswick Center at Calabash. He enjoys playing a game or two after lunch. Any challengers?

The Reviews Are In! The Leland Larks Presented the Musical:

“No Biz Like Show Biz”

All of the Larks’ hard work paid off. They had the audience raving for more! ! !

Senior Spotlight “We try to get closer to the Lord every day and to be kind.” Meet Alton & Annie Ruth Fairfax! Alton, a native to Southeastern N.C., was born in Whiteville in May of 1939. He moved to New Jersey as a young man to work on a dredge boat but was forced to return to Whiteville after a bout of appendicitis. Upon his return, Alton ran into a beautiful woman (Annie) who was having some car trouble. Annie, born in Bolton in April of 1930, fell head over heels for Alton. The two returned to N.J., married, and will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this year! Having grown up twenty minutes apart without ever knowing it, Alton and Annie say they now try to live their lives to the fullest. Alton worked for several years in the auto industry and Annie worked at Eckerd’s Pharmacy. Both are proud to report having children that followed in their footsteps, with their son following into auto sales and their daughter growing up to be a pharmacist. As a tight-knit family with four grandchildren, the Fairfaxes love to go to church, go out to eat, and enjoy each other's company. Alton still enjoys working on cars as a hobby. One of their favorite pastimes was going to the now closed historic Chic-Chic Drive-In movie theater in Wilmington. Together, they have seen Leland grow from when it had only a half dozen houses into what it is today. To use Annie’s favorite phrase, we are beyond ‘blessed’ to have you, Alton and Annie!

I

n 2015, the Congress passed, and the president signed into law, a measure that makes changes to the sale of Medigap Plans C, F, and F High Deductible after January 1, 2020. The law is the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). There is a lot of misinformation being circulated about these MACRA changes.

For the “newly eligible,” Plans D, G, and G High Deductible substitute for Plans C, F and F High deductible. A person who reaches the age of 65 or is eligible for Medicare BEFORE January 1, 2020 IS NOT a “newly eligible” individual.

Plans C, F, or High F will not be discontinued for those individuals who became eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020. Those individuals who were Medicare eligible before January 1, 2020 will still be able to keep their policies or can purchase and can still be sold Plans C or F on or after January 1, 2020.

Medigap coverage is guaranteed renewable and, so long as the policyholder pays the premium, the coverage cannot be cancelled. Some policyholders are being told that Plans C and F will no longer be available after December 31, 2019 and must therefore purchase new coverage in order to not lose their Medigap coverage -- THAT IS NOT TRUE.

Some policyholders are being told that premiums for coverage under Plans C or F will be increasing to such an extent that they should purchase other coverage. These would be considered FALSE or MISLEADING statements to induce policyholders to improperly switch coverage and are in clear violation of Medigap insurance laws. For more detailed information do not hesitate to contact your state department of insurance, state health assistance insurance program (SHIP) or the company that issued your policy.

The purpose of this bulletin is to make clear what MACRA does and does not do and clarify and correct the false and misleading information provided by some groups and individuals.

If you are currently age 65 or will be age 65 before January 1, 2020, MACRA DOES NOT affect you.

If you first become eligible for Medicare due to age, disability or end-stage renal disease before January 1, 2020, MACRA DOES NOT affect you.

MACRA states that, as of January 1, 2020, those who are “newly eligible” cannot buy or be sold Plans C, F or F High Deductible after January 1, 2020.

“Newly eligible” means those persons who a) attain the age of 65 on or after January 1, 2020 or b) first become eligible for Medicare due to age, disability or end-stage renal disease, on or after January 1, 2020.

All other Medigap plans will remain unchanged EXCEPT for Medigap Plans D, G and G High Deductible replacing Plans C, F, and F High Deductible for “newly eligible” beneficiaries.
