One of the hallmarks of a nonprofit organization is the need to always be looking ahead, anticipating needs and making sound decisions. When October rolls around each year, I know that in the blink of an eye we will be making preparations to ensure that all our seniors feel loved and appreciated during the holidays. I love this time of year as I get to see the generosity of so many in our community and the way that it brings light to even more. I mention this because it is never too early to begin to think of ways to serve, to help, and to contribute. I truly believe that each of us has something to give in terms of time, kindness or material. Please resolve to do something for someone this year before the calendar closes and the time slips away. The annual Seniors Helping Seniors and Their Caregivers is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 13, 2017. This year’s event will be held at the new Brunswick Center at Supply at 101 Stone Chimney Road.

hink about your friends and family, how many people do you know have a history of heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure? Did you know that eating a high fat diet can put you at risk for these several health conditions? However, fat is actually needed by the body. But too much can be unhealthy for you. Reducing your fat intake can help you maintain weight and also lower your risk of diseases.

Fats actually promote good health and are part of a healthy diet. Fats also help with brain development, vision, and vitamin absorption in order for your body to function.

On the other hand, fats are high in calories, so if you eat more calories than you need, you may gain weight.

There are two types of fats that we all know are harmful to our bodies. Trans Fat: These are mostly made from oils and you can find these in many processed foods as well as fried foods. Saturated Fats: These are primarily found in meat such as red meat and poultry as well as dairy products. They are known to increase blood cholesterol.

These 2 types of fat are part of a healthy diet.

Monounsaturated Fats: These are found in olive oil, peanut oil, and canola oil. Polyunsaturated Fats: Found in some oils and fish – sardines, tuna, and salmon.

Eat low fat foods. Read food labels to find the fat content of foods. You want to aim for less than 5% for the Percent Daily Value in saturated and trans fats. Choose low fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, low fat milk, and whole grains. Bake, broil, steam, or grill foods instead of frying. Prepare lean meats when possible. Trim fat from cuts of meat and remove skin from poultry.

Brunswick County’s Best-Kept Secret By Terry Barlow

T

here are many ways that constructive competition is modeled in our communities. One of the most impressive ways is through volunteer organizations like the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). This civilian aviation group was founded in the 1941 with a courier and border patrol mission. In World War II, 64 CAP members lost their lives in the line of duty. Local CAP members sank two U-boats off the North Carolina coast and rescued a downed pilot. Today CAP is a service organization with some 58,000 members nationwide, with three congressionally mandated missions: emergency services (search and rescue and disaster relief), aerospace education, and cadet programs. And the Brunswick County Composite Squadron is bringing the mission to a new generation.

CAP cadets compete among themselves and with themselves in meeting physical fitness requirements, progressing in rank, and qualifying for various achievement awards. They compete as squadrons within their own regions and across regions in drill competitions. Many of these students go on to military academies or careers in aviation. CAP’s aerospace education efforts focus on volunteer CAP members and the general public. And CAP’s external aerospace programs are conducted

through our nation’s educational system. Each year, CAP reaches hundreds of educators and young people, teaching basic aerospace knowledge and focusing on advances in aerospace technology.

Commander of the Brunswick County Squadron.

CAP also provides emergency services including search and rescue and disaster relief. CAP members fly airborne photography missions in a Cessna airplane at Cape Fear Regional Jetport in Oak Island, and they supply these photos to FEMA to help them decide how to allocate services. These are often the photos you see of flooded areas after hurricanes.

“It’s all about private service,” Nicholas said. “People in CAP want to serve, to give back, to participate.”

“We were the first to go up when the towers went down on 9-11,” said Maj. Kathy Nicholas,

An auxiliary of the Air Force, CAP has an all-volunteer staff.

To that end, CAP trains cadets and senior (adult) members in many areas. For search and rescue operations, members may learn how to find someone, to look for clues as part of a ground team. Pilots and others are trained to search and how to take useful photos from the air. Volunteers are needed in many positions, such as logistics, finance,

maintaining aircraft, professional development, and fundraising. Although the Air Force pays for the CAP’s missions, the group must fundraise for projects such as field trips for cadets and encampments. One such project is Wreaths Across America, which distributes Christmas wreaths on veterans’ graves. To learn more about this program, contact Dick Hart at NC170WAA@gmail.com.

Meet the CAP crew and find out more about the program by attending a meeting. Meetings are the first four Tuesdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. at Beach Road Baptist Church, 4457 Flagship Ave., Southport. Read more on page 12. Terry Barlow is a retired educator, author, and current Civil Air Patrol chaplain. A world traveler in 35 nations, he has taught in Spain, Alaska, China, and Honduras. He has also been active in presenting basketball clinics for children and participating in mission projects in Africa and South America and counseling seminars in India and Sri Lanka. Barlow and Civil Air Patrol cadets map out a search route.

How Competition Can Heal Division By Terry Barlow

C

ompetition, when approached in a constructive manner, can help produce solutions and healing for society’s problems, rather than compound the divisions and resentments that already exist. What follows is a case in point: The desire to excel is constructive, but what one man witnessed at a neighborhood softball game was anything but constructive. A community leader had to be reminded who (or whose) he was so that, hopefully, he could get hold of himself. “But you don’t understand!’” the leader protested. “Yes, I do understand!” his critic assured him. “Just let me have my pity party!” the leader said. At least he was acknowledging that it was a pity party. But he was missing the point of the activity, which was to enjoy each other’s company and get some good exercise. Destructive competitiveness is driven by pride characterized by an intense desire to outdo, show up, or put down an opponent. Constructive competitiveness is characterized by a desire to do our best, to excel, or to please the One who gifted us with the ability and talents to engage in the activities in the first place. Constructive competitiveness carries with it no need to hate or dislike the opponents or sacrifice the relationships with them on the altar of winning a contest at any cost. In fact, the competition of the contest can serve to build a stronger, richer relationship between opponents. This is the kind of competition is demonstrated for us by Brunswick County’s Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (adult members and school age cadets, hence “composite”). Another example of that kind of competition is found in the friendship that existed and still exists between the fierce NBA opponents of yesteryear, Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics and Magic Johnson of the LA Lakers (1980s). Each brought out the best in the other, taking their respective skills to new and unprecedented levels. Their constructive competition also did wonders for the NBA League, popularizing professional basketball internationally as never before. Larry and Magic had no desire to harm each

other; they could shake hands before and after games regardless of who won. Throughout the ferocity of their matchups, they continued to care about each other and demonstrate good sportsmanship as an example to the rest of the league and the millions of fans, young and old, who watched. And they not only represented different teams but different races. Leo Durocher, a successful Giants baseball manager in the 1940s and 1950s, said “Nice guys finish last.” He meant that on-the-field niceness can often translate into softness or lack of determination on the part of athletes. But Magic and Larry were both winners but still nice to each other, even if primarily after the game in some very bittersweet moments. Bitter because losing is a bitter brew and it hurts. Sweet because it needn’t separate friends or prevent the making of friends no matter what color, and because winning is exhilarating. But if Durocher meant that one athlete or competitor should hate another in order to perform at a high level, he was dead wrong. If he meant that good sportsmanship or friendship was inconsistent with winning and growing into a better person, he was dead wrong again. But, then, Leo Durocher had possibly never heard of the Civil Air Patrol, still a fledgling organization in his day.

“Aging: Looking forward not backward” When I was in my twenties and thirties, I never thought that one day I would grow old. Now that I am approaching sixty five, aging means starting a new adventure, making new friends, and enjoying life. As seniors, we are more in tune to our own lives, therefore we are staying healthy, active, and productive. We are not afraid to embark on new experiences such as making jewelry, painting, chair aerobics and a nutritional health program. These are things we never had time for when we were working and raising our families. Sometimes we feel alone as seniors, I can assure you, we are not. We make up 20 percent of the world population. By mid-century we will be over two billion. I’ve always been told there’s strength in numbers. In that case WE Have the Power! We are still able to make a difference in the world. We must keep in mind that “Attitude” is every“I am comfortable in thing. I have embraced my my own skin as an new found silver lining. I can older adult. I have a no longer run a six minute peace of mind and a mile and I sometimes wake sense of fulfillment up feeling pain in my joints, that I didn’t know however I would not trade the could exist in my 20s wisdom I gained over the and 30s.” years. I am comfortable in my own skin as an older adult. I have a peace of mind and a sense of fulfillment that I didn’t know could exist in my 20s and 30s. Sure, there are some down sides to the aging process, but I’m convinced it is time to start focusing on the upside. When we point out the negatives without the positives, we tell those younger than we are, that the best part of life is over. This is far from the truth. At age 64 my life is in a wonderful place physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. And even if we have to give in to some aches and pains, the benefits of getting older with a sound mind outweighs the negatives. How we age is in our control. Know your own selfperception about aging, maintain a sense of humor, learn to laugh more and know a positive attitude is our key to a long and healthy life. The choice is yours!

Each year during October we collect “wishes” from seniors in need. We try to fill those wishes through the generosity of our members, supporters, and friends. If you’d like to fulfill a wish for one—or more—of our seniors, call the center for details.
