This then "new" entrance way at Orr park was completed in 1944, a gift of one of the town's most civic minded citizens, B.G. Cope. Made of Briar Hill sandstone, it was built by J.E. Crummel with Ralph Fetter as the stone mason.

Puddles are ready for splashing, and the pool will be too in about three weeks (on June 3rd). Here is what the main entrance on the west side of Orr park looks like today.

Local News May 4, 1944: DOYLESTOWN – A snake, 13 feet and six inches long, found by Bill Hummel, a marine home on furlough, while hunting mushrooms in Laugguth's woods, about 3-4 miles from town on the Church Street Road Monday, has proved to be a nine-days wonder for people in this community. Various conjectures as to the origin of the snake, which was dead when Hummel found it curled up like a horseshoe, have been offered. Among these, that it might have strayed from the vicinity of the Black Diamond Farm, a few miles from the spot the snake was round, as some of the old timers tell stories of having see snakes, while not much of such immense proportions, at least big ones, in that vicinity. At almost any hour of the day and night for the last two days, people could be seen swarming to the scene, not only from this community, but from surrounding towns as well. Perhaps the Axis planted it there as a bit of subversive strategy, as it caused a great deal of gasoline to be wasted. As many as 15 cars would be seen there at one time...Another explanation offered was that a traveling circus might have wanted to dispose of the sick or dead snake and chose Laugguth's woods for the job. The only thing, though, that particular spot is so far off the traveled highway that it seems unlikely that would be the answer. The snake has been called every kind possible, but the word Python seems to be the one

most generally used. Whatever the source of the snake, more snake stories have been recalled or imagined and the most excitement has prevailed in Doylestown since the time, about 20 or 30 years ago, when they found the murdered man in Rougues Hollow. May 7, 1945: It was a case of misplaced motherly love that occurred on the Menno Gerber farm, near Kidron, when a little Bantam hen took upon herself the task of sheltering seven tiny kittens. When the eggs on which the hen had been setting overhead in the barn entry failed to hatch, the little Banty came down from her perch a week ago to sit on a newly born litter of four kittens. Shortly afterwards a second cat gave birth to three kittens near the same spot, so that made a total of seven which the Banty literally took under her wings. For the past week the Banty has refused to give up her position and the two mother cats have had to lie on either side of her, or if they did happen to get on the nest first, she would simply perch herself on top of them. Then yesterday, the cats, having had just about enough of sharing their families with another, started to move them just around the corner. It's our guess though that this Banty's motherly instinct isn't going to be beaten out that easily and she will probably follow the feline family to their new quarters.

Joke Corner Animal Cracker Joke “Mom, can I have an animal cracker?” asked 3 year old Bob. “Sure Bob,” said his mom. “Open up the box, and take a few.” Forty five minutes later Bob’s mother walked into the kitchen. “Bob, why’d you spill out all of the animal crackers, and what are you looking for?” “It said on the box not to eat it if the seal is broken.” Bob replied “I spilled out the whole box, I looked through all of the animals but I can’t find any seals!” -www.greatcleanjokes.com

Are Still O-tay! By Me

Article by RANDY WILSON NOW & THEN CONTRIBUTOR

A

countless number of times I’ve been asked if “The Little Rascals” are available on home video. A countless number of times I had to say, currently no. Years ago, a company in Davenport, Iowa called Blackhawk Films did release several volumes of Spanky and The Gang on 8mm film and video. Those versions are no longer around. Over the years, several other companies have released various versions of the episodes to DVD which have come and gone. But now, the Rascals are back for a whole new generation to enjoy in a complete, uncut and authorized DVD set which you can purchase wherever DVDs are sold. I can remember watching “The Little Rascals” on “The Captain Penny Show” on Channel 5 when I was much younger. For those who don’t remember Captain Penny, he was my generation’s answer to Sesame Street. The show ran three times a day and always featured a Rascals episode or two. Of course they’ve played in numerous reruns since then but only to be chopped up for commercials. Today, one would rarely see a complete uncut episode of

any “Little Rascals” comedy short. Thusly, I decided this would be the perfect time to tell my story of the night I met my favorite Little Rascal…Spanky McFarland. He’s best remembered as the mischievous cherub with a beanie, the kid who led his band of “Little Rascals” into adventures that have charmed audiences for well over 50 years. He’s remembered by most for his comedy shorts we’ve repeatedly seen on television and by a fortunate few who saw those shorts on the big screen. Along with his cronies Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Butch, Darla, Porky and Stymie—and loveable Pete the Dog—George Spanky McFarland has become an American legend. Born George Robert Phillips McFarland in 1928 in Dallas, Texas, the nickname “Spanky” developed from his mother’s waning of “Mustn’t touch…spankee…spankee,” when McFarland was still an infant. At the age of two, he became a model for baby clothes and a baking company in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His aunt sent some of the baking company publicity photos to the Hal Roach Studios in Hollywood. McFarland was called out for a screen test and consequently signed to a contract with the Roach Studios, which at the time was responsible for producing


remembered his co-stars, the good times and the bad, of his childhood as everyone’s favorite “Little Rascal.” As he bade farewell to the crowd, he assured us that he would sign autographs for everyone and that he did. As well over 800 folks lined up, “Spanky” signed autographs, posed for pictures and chatted until after 1:30am! “Spanky” was everything I envisioned him to be and then some. If you looked real close you could almost see those signature short pants and beanie even though he wore a sport coat and tie. I’ll always remember that night at the Civic, not just from my treasured autographed copy of “The Kid from Borneo,” but for the person that “Spanky” was. Yes, he was a star but after listening to his story one could tell he wasn’t a wealthy star. He was just like you and I and his wealth came from the joy of his work and being able to share it with his fans. I’m only sorry that “Spanky” is no longer with us. From childhood star to vacuum sweeper salesman to lecturer, that “Spanky,” what a guy. He’s O-Tay by me. Here’s looking at you, kid.

Laurel & Hardy and Harold Lloyd comedies as well as the successful “Our Gang” series. With the “Our Gang” series, Roach intended to represent a typical American neighborhood and its children during the Great Depresion of the 1930s. Each film had a script, and the older children who could memorize, learned the lines and followed the director’s orders. The younger ones more or less “played” along with the older kids. In 1931 “Spanky” made his debut in a short film titles “Free Eats.” They placed the three year old in front of the camera and recorded his actions. The result was magical. For the next 13 years “Spanky” McFarland would work eight hours a day; five hours in front of the camera, one hour for lunch and three hours of school, becoming the focal point for the “Little Rascals” and “Our Gang” comedies. After making his last “Our Gang” short in 1944, McFarland found little work in Hollywood. No One wanted to hire a grown-up 16 year old “Spanky.” So he returned to the Dallas area and worked odd jobs until he settled in sales, retiring some 30 years later. Following his sales career, McFarland began touring the country with his lecture series. “Spanky” made a total of 95 short subject comedies at Hal Roach Studios and later at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios. (The shorts were known as “Our Gang” in the theatre and “Little Rascals” on television). His personal favorite was the 1933 “The Kid from Borneo,” in which his ne’er-do-well uncle comes to the Rascals hometown with a sideshow of a wild man from Borneo. When the kids go to visit they mistake the attraction for the uncle. And the rest, well, it was just Rascal history. “Spanky” autographed my film print of “The Kid from Borneo” which rests on the shelf next to the rest of my Rascals collection. McFarland also had several roles in full-length motion pictures including “Trail of the Lonesome Pine,” “O’Shaughnessy’s Boy,” “General Spanky,” “Peck’s Bad Boy With the Circus,” “Kentucky Kernals,” “miss Fane’s Baby is Stolen,” “Johnny Doughboy,” “Day of Reckoning,” “Woman in the Window,” “Pick a Star,” “ Varsity Show,” “Here Comes the Band” and “Aurora Encounter.” Several of his movies are now available on DVD. The night I met “Spanky” was nearly 25 years ago on a very snowy April night. He was to appear at Akron’s Civic Theatre and our area was blanketed with 16 inches of snow! As the old saying goes…the show must go on…and it did. “Spanky” arrived late and the 8pm show began at 9:45 (a surprisingly large number of fans did make it to the theatre despite the snow). As the short, rotund little man bounced onto the stage the audience went wild. For the next two hours, “Spanky” enthusiastically and nostalgically

A

business partnership that began 25 years ago between Tammy Brooks and Traci HangerHoffman has been nurtured over time by a great deal of mutual respect and a willingness to grow. Commitment to their community has always been a bonding, core value for Tammy and Traci – from the day they decided to start The Summit Therapy Center of Wooster together. Tammy says of herself and Traci, “We are really good at real life.” Their personalities and ability to understand one another have given them a strong foundation for their professional relationship, and over the years they have completely supported each other in their personal lives as well. “We have always been there for each others' family needs, covering when we need to,” added Traci. “There is a very close connection because both of us had kids in school at the same time.” Traci says her greatest insights into Tammy's personality have come from watching her with Traci Hanger-Hoffman picutred here in 1990 (and her family, as she and her at left above). husband raised their three

kids. She knows Tammy brings this same dedication into the therapist role, valuing the individual relationship. In working with Traci, Tammy has seen someone who is persistent and committed to her dream. “With her it's all about what we can do – she doesn't let go of that,” Tammy says of Traci. “Many times there has been a wall and I appreciate that she won't let go. She holds us to a standard and that has tremendous value.” The two women enjoy sharing the things their amazing kids are doing with each other and they have always been family centered. This thinking went into the decision to start their therapy center in a house, because they knew it would be a more home-like and comfortable environment. Both Traci and Tammy have their own core group of solid friends outside of work. They appreciate their business partnership and they recognize that when they aren't in the office it's important to their own mental health to keep that balance between business and social life.

and communicate, building on the respect they have for each other. “Anything Traci brings to me, I want to hear and understand,” added Tammy. The only issues that have been a true challenge at times for the dynamic duo are normally related to insurance. Navigating the ever changing and often Tammy in 1992 when the complicated (sometimes office first opened. confining) aspects of the insurance industry can be frustrating. The way insurance relates to individual therapy needs is very different from the way insurance relates to other medical needs. It is important for the staff to keep up with the common practices in their field. Working with people through e-therapy (online) is just one of the ways they have begun to adapt and transform when a barrier comes up along the way. “We want our community to be a place where it's safe and supportive and we appreciate all the support we get from our local medical community and the local schools,” said Traci.“Without the amazing staff in our office we would have become busier than we could manage and we're grateful to work with such a diverse and dedicated group of people.” Understanding that when much is given, much is expected, there is always time for volunteering and for giving back. They believe clients and the community as a whole are the best evaluators of their work and they will continue to build on this basis. “Our thinking is, let's do this together,” added Tammy. “By bringing on the additional therapists it has allowed us to grow as the community's needs grow.” “Time is crucial,” added Traci. “I appreciate that about the group we have as we are able to listen to each other, support each other and when there is something we can collaborate on Tammy and Traci, shown here we are able to do so. in 1990, knew they wanted their Knowing that each business to be part of a safe and therapist has certain

She in 1992, exemplifying had succeeded in Traci persistence and commitment, accomplishing most ready to do some digging at their of the goals she had new office. set for the agency when she first took the job. Traci had completed her Master’s Degree in Psychology and was working several part-time counseling jobs. Both women were very successful in their careers and were looking for new ways to be of value to their community. As they shared their interests and their dreams, it became clear that they could collaborate to create a counseling center that would address the mental health needs of individuals and families looking for creative, compassionate, individualized care. Both women have served on community boards and volunteered hundreds of hours in their local schools, churches, and other civic organizations. Today the additional staff at The Summit Therapy Center of Wooster includes therapists Leslie Feder, LISW-S, Heidi Ross, LPCC, Angela Anderson, LPCC, Doug Princehorn, MSW, LISW-S. Their office support team also includes Lyn Emerson and Kathy Princehorn. “Being supportive in our personal lives and realizing that we do real life well, has allowed all of us to lean on each other professionally,” said Tammy.

More information is available through SummitTherapyCenter.com and their office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with Saturdays by appointment, at 4419 Cleveland Road in Wooster. Starting their own business was all about collaborative genius for Tammy and Traci. They knew where their strengths were, understood their value and decided to bring the two forces together. While the nature of their business means that it is never “easy”, there is an ease with which they understand their role and work to bring this same understanding and value to each person who walks through their doors.

A Total Knee Replacement "Just For You"

Article by DR. RODNEY MILLER, MD NOW & THEN CONTRIBUTOR

K

nee replacement surgery was first performed in 1968. Originally, joint replacement surgery was reserved for patients typically over 70 years old. Due to concerns of implant failure, replacement surgery on younger patients was avoided. Although these procedures typically significantly improved arthritic knee pain, some residual pain, stiffness, and a feeling that the knee was never quite normal was not uncommon. Since then, there have been advancements in surgical materials and techniques which have greatly increased the effectiveness and longevity of the replacement. Knee replacement surgeries are commonly performed at the hospitals of Wayne and Holmes County as well as the Wooster Ambulatory Surgery Center by local orthopaedic surgeons. Standard off-the-shelf, noncustomized knee joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain, correct deformity, and help you resume normal activities. Despite this, some patients are still hesitant to consider total knee replacement surgery. When asked why patients with a painful arthritic knee are postponing surgery, many patients admit to waiting for a "new or better" procedure. Customized knee replacement surgery with patient specific cutting guides and a customized implant may likely be their answer. In simple terms, the implant is the metal and plastic

Now & Then • 10

that is used by the surgeon to replace the patient's removed arthritic knee bone. For the first time in this area, customized knee implants are now available for patients who need partial or total knee replacement surgery. These fully customized knee implants are uniquely designed for each patient and are manufactured using proprietary, advanced "image to implant" technology developed by ConforMIS. With the use of a standard computerized tomography (CT) scan of the patient's arthritic leg, an individual patient specific total knee replacement or partial knee replacement, with associated custom cutting blocks to be used by the surgeon, can be performed. Using 3-D printing technology, the knee joint is created one thin layer at the time with the same materials used for a traditional noncustom replacement. In essence, they are designing the implant to fit the bone rather than the bone to fit the implant, which better replicates the patient's natural anatomy. This process results in the implant that is the precise size and shape of the patient's individual joint. This technology may represent a significant advantage over the current off-the-shelf knee implants. Off-the-shelf implants are available in only a limited range of sizes and shapes. As a result, when using off-the-shelf implants, surgeons need to make more extensive cuts to the patient's bone to accommodate the implant. This may be a major factor that causes approximately 1 out of every 5 knee


replacement patients to suffer residual pain caused by illfitting implants. This also may result in a mismatch between the size and shape of the patient's bone and noncustom implant which may result in functional limitations for the patient. With customized implants, the size and shape of the implant is knee and patient specific, which may lead to a more normal feeling knee with better range of motion and higher patient satisfaction. During the custom procedure, the surgeon cuts less bone to accommodate the implant, therefore patients can experience less trauma and postoperative pain. Patients with customized implants may have faster recoveries and be more satisfied with the results. The greater preservation of bone also helps to position patients for successful future surgeries if necessary. Another benefit of customized knee implants is that they are developed with complete single use, customized cutting guides for the orthopaedic surgeon to use only on that patient. Because the implants are single use and disposable, there is reduced sterilization required compared with reusable instruments. There is less potential for contamination

Celebrating 40 Years 1977 - 2017

compared to reusable instruments. The cutting guides are also manufactured via 3-D printing and calibrated based on the patient's unique CT scan so they can fit the implant with maximum precision. This allows the orthopaedic surgeon to align the implant more exactly. Proper placement and alignment has been found to help reduce implant wear and help ensure that the prosthesis lasts as long as possible. While many patients do fine with non-customized knee replacement surgery, it is hoped that customized total knee replacement surgery will increase the number of more satisfied patients, giving them a more normal feeling, long lasting knee replacement with less postoperative pain and an easier recovery. If you or a loved one are experiencing arthritic knee pain and have been told you may need a knee replacement, the best way to find out if you are candidate is to be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon.

Car Tips

Ridesharing Keeps Seniors on the Move

L

osing the ability to drive and get around is one of the most challenging aspects of growing older for seniors. This loss of independence can result in loneliness, depression and isolation. Often seniors have to rely on family to take them places, leaving them at the mercy of a friend or relative’s schedule. Ridesharing services such as Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, and many others can fill the transportation void for older adults and help them regain their lost independence. Many traditional paratransit services (door-to-door transit, often limited to those over 65 and disabled) may be less convenient than ridesharing services, and it may be challenging to find a company that services rural areas. Plus, reservations may need to be made a day in advance, with limited drop-off locations available. That makes it hard for seniors to make spontaneous plans, again taking away some of their independence. But flexible ridesharing services may provide the flexibility seniors are hoping for. Connecting with ridesharing services requires only a cursory education in mobile technology. According to a recent report from the Consumer Electronics Association, 46 percent of senior households have smartphones and 40 percent have tablets. Many seniors are becoming more tech-savvy, meaning they have the wherewithal to navigate apps and websites that can connect them with a ride. And if they aren’t, a quick primer from a young friend or relative can stoke their confidence. Before engaging a ridesharing service, seniors should familiarize themselves with how such services work and take steps to ensure their safety.

Now & Then • 14

• Many ridesharing services are linked directly to a credit card account. Passengers should not have to pay in cash. If the driver requests it, this should raise a red flag. Report the driver to the service. • Confirm that the driver matches the profile and the vehicle that was indicated on the ride app. Never get in the car unless there is verification. • Ask for an estimate regarding the cost of the trip and if those costs can increase considerably during the ride. Budget-conscious seniors should avoid services whose rates can fluctuate dramatically after riders get in the vehicle. • Look into Uber ASSIST as another option. Seniors who require a little help to get in and out of the car or those who need wheelchairs or other devices can choose the Uber ASSIST option on their apps. This ensures their driver will be specially trained and is capable of helping with the transfer. New senior ridesharing services, such as Lift Hero in California, are now hitting the market as well. Ridesharing services are changing the way people get around. While ridesharing might have been designed with millennials in mind, it has become the new go-to for seniors who are not ready to give up their independence.


Car Tips

How Waxing Benefits a Vehicle

C

ar and truck owners recognize that a certain measure of upkeep is necessary to maintain safe, efficient and goodlooking vehicles. Making sure what’s under the hood — and under the chassis — is in excellent condition is important. So, too, is safeguarding against damage to the exterior of a car or truck. One of the ways to protect against environmental damage is to wax the vehicle. Bird droppings, rain, salt, and sun can take their toll on a vehicle, and waxing can help combat these often inevitable environmental factors. The experts at Popular Mechanics say that, even though modern paint jobs have improved considerably in recent years, wax formulations have improved as well. Both can work wonders with regard to defending against color erosion, scratches and dullness. Furthermore, waxing increases resale value at trade-in time and can make it easier to clean vehicles. The consumer advocates at Angie’s List recommend that vehicles be waxed not less than twice a year. However, many detailers advise drivers to have their vehicles waxed once every three months, or one time per season. In addition to protecting a vehicle from the elements, waxing provides the following benefits.

• Deep shine: Wax is the easiest way to make a vehicle look brand new again. While a carnauba-based wax may be recommended, many synthetic waxes are now available, and such products provide excellent shine capabilities as well. • Fills in scratches: While wax will not remove scratches, it can fill in shallow scratches to make them less visible. • Reduces friction: Car wax smooths the surface of the paint and will reduce the friction between debris and the car’s exterior. This means debris will be more likely to slide right off than cause paint to chip. • Catches contaminants: Airborne contaminants will be trapped in the wax rather than settle into paint and etch the car or truck. A number of tests can indicate when a car needs a new coat of wax. The water-beading test is one such test. If the water beads up nicely while washing or during a light rain, the wax is still performing. If the water runs in large “sheets,” it’s time for a new coat of wax. Drivers can conduct the towel test as well after the car is washed and completely dried. The resource How To Auto offers guidance on how to perform this test: Fold a 100-percent cotton terry cloth towel until it’s

hand-sized and thick. Apply firm pressure to the car’s surface and twist the cloth back and forth in a clockwise and counter-clockwise direction. If you hear a squealing noise, then it’s time for a wax job. Before waxing, the vehicle should be clean, dry and free of contaminants. Afterward, work in a shady area. Work carefully, but do not go so slowly that the wax dries too quickly. Do not apply the wax too heavily; a little goes a long way. Try to keep it even during application. Buff the wax with a microfiber towel when done. Waxing remains an important part of vehicle maintenance, safeguarding a vehicle from the elements while also keeping the car or truck looking new.

Slather all the grilled sides of the ciabatta with the Romesco. Place the chicken breasts on the bottom half of the bread, shave some Manchego cheese over the chicken, then top with baby greens and the top half of the bread. If you’re using a loaf of ciabatta, you’ll have 2 chicken breasts on each loaf, so cut each loaf in half horizontally. If you’re using ciabattini, you’ll use 1 breast for each roll. Serve immediately. Romesco Sauce Makes 2 cups 1⁄2 cup toasted slivered almonds 2 jarred roasted red bell peppers, roughly chopped

Wiggam Visits

Cleartone Hearing For

Pat Strnad of Cleartone Hearing takes a look inside State Representative Scott Wiggam's ears, using a video otoscope during his free screening.

I

n support of Better Hearing & Speech Month, State Representative Scott Wiggam (R-Wooster) stepped into the exam room at Cleartone Hearing, to promote a better understanding of hearing and communication disorders, and also to show that having a clear picture of your hearing health is important no matter what your age. Recently, Wiggam introduced a communication disabilities bill, that, if enacted, will alert law enforcement that a gap in communications might exist. This is Wiggam’s first bill, and it has drawn no opposition. Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) is a co-sponsor. Wiggam became aware of the issue when a Wayne County mother called him with concerns about her son. The intent is to de-escalate a situation by letting law enforcement know a person might have difficulty communicating. Cleartone Audiologist Pat Strnad went through the steps of a hearing test with Wiggam and Audioprosthologist Steve Strnad was on hand to discuss and affirm the importance of having the test done. Pat first used a video otoscope to make sure there was no wax build up or obstructions in the ear canal

or around the eardrum. After making sure that everything looked clear and healthy inside the ear, Pat then explained what they would be looking for in the screening itself. Wiggam stepped into a booth and put on a set of headphones as the screening began. Using a series of tones ranging from the base tones and vowel sounds on the lower side, to the higher treble sounds and consonants, Pat checked Wiggam's ears for clarity and measured the four main frequencies that form the heart of our conversations.

“I remember having a hearing test done when I was a young child, but I really haven't had it done since then.” -Scott Wiggam Steve recommended that hearing should be checked every 4-5 years in order to establish a benchmark. When there is a small amount of hearing loss or a person

is using hearing aids, it is recommended that hearing be checked every year. For people over the age of 50 it is also good to have the test done once a year, and Cleartone Hearing offers this test free of charge. One important piece of advice that not many people are aware of is how important it is to see an ear, nose and throat specialist within 48 hours of noticing a sudden loss of hearing. Both Pat and Steve have had experience in seeing patients with this issue. When a sudden hearing loss occurs and the patient is not able to see an ENT within the crucial first 48 hours, there may be significant, permanent hearing loss as a result. Permanent hearing loss impacts every aspect of a person's life, it can make it difficult to find work and change the way you communicate with others. The reality of hearing health should help people realize that having your hearing checked is nothing to be embarrassed about. “I'm so glad I did this,” said Wiggam. “If someone is going through life not able to hear, they may be suffering. I want to make sure I'm not missing anything and having your hearing checked only takes a few minutes to do.” On this day, Wiggam's auditory system was determined to be in good health. Were it not, Pat and Steve may have recommended the use of a hearing aid. They discussed with Wiggam the different types of hearing aids, relating how everything is now digital, most hearing aids are almost impossible to see and the features are automatic, eliminating the need for constant adjustments. When there is an adjustment that needs to be made, some hearing aids offer the option of a remote or an app on your phone that will allow you to tweak your auditory preferences. Anyone experiencing hearing loss, or knows someone Happy to hear that his auditory system a f f e c t e d is in good health, Wiggam's screening by hearing took just a few minutes to complete.

Did You Know? S

tudies have shown that music can have a beneficial impact on both mental and physical health. In a meta-analysis of 400 studies, researchers at McGill University in Montreal found that music can reduce stress and boost the immune system. That’s because listening to music increases the body’s production of immunoglobin A, an antibody that plays an critical role in the function of the immune system and cells that attack viruses. A 2013 study even found that music can help children during visits to the emergency room. Researchers at the University of Alberta studied 42 children between the ages of 3 and 11, discovering that those who listened to relaxing music while having an IV inserted reported less pain than children who did not listen to music. In addition, children who listened to music during the adminstration of the IV exhibited less anguish than the children who did not listen to music. Healthcare workers even noted the ease of administering IVs to children who were listening to music compared to patients who were not listening to music.
