Lifecycles Riders To Embark On Trans Am Challenge Ride By Chelsea Peifer

This summer, six young men from Lancaster County - ranging in age from 15 to 19 - will be flying to the West Coast to take on a 3,820-mile, 63-day bicycle ride from Oregon to Maine. The Trans Am Extreme Challenge Ride is a new undertaking for each of the riders and for Lifecycles, a nonprofit mentoring program committed to building young men and women of character through bicycling adventures. Retired United States Air Force Col. Lee DeRemer developed the vision for Lifecycles after seeing a transformation of sorts in his nephews after they had conquered a bicycle trip through Montana and Wyoming together. DeRemer had planned that adventure after his nephews lost their father to cancer as a way to spend time together and provide some of the male leadership they were

now missing in their lives. The joy and growth that trip yielded was something DeRemer believed could be replicated on a larger scale. Today, volunteers from Lifecycles lead weekly rides for teenage boys in Landisville, Marietta, and New Holland and for girls in Lititz. More than 80 riders participated in the 2019 season, and more than 160 riders have been a part of Lifecycles since the program began in 2015. A free meal is served, and bicycles, helmets, and shirts are supplied for all participants. Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up ahead of time at if they would like to join a ride. Walk-ins are welcome too. Additionally, Lifecycles organizes annual summer challenge rides for participants. The inaugural challenge ride consisted of nine teenagers and seven adult guides pedaling 290 miles See Lifecycles pg 3

The About Child Trauma (ACT) Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Mount Joy, offers trauma-informed training to organizations and professionals with the goal of helping children to heal from the effects of early trauma. Executive director Lark Eshleman, MLS, MS, Ph.D., who specializes in the field of trauma and attachment, wants people to know that they can all have a hand in fostering resilience - the antidote to child trauma. “What we know is that relationships are key, and one caring adult can change a person’s life,” stated Eshleman. “That person doesn’t need to live with them but needs to be consistent and safe. To be that person for a child in need is a gift beyond measure.” According to Eshleman, a 1998 study See ACT Foundation pg 2

Lark Eshleman serves as executive director of the About Child Trauma Foundation and is one of several professionals in the organization who is available to present Pennsylvania Department of Educationapproved Act 48 trauma-informed courses that cover topics including emotional trauma, complex trauma, trauma and sensory processing disorder, and mindfulness.

conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) demonstrated how traumatic childhood events can be the root cause of many social, emotional, and cognitive impairments that contribute to an increase in high-risk health behaviors, chronic health conditions, emotional and behavioral dysfunction, and early death. Examples of ACEs are physical, emotional, or sexual abuse; physical or emotional neglect; and forms of household dysfunction such as divorce, mental illness, substance abuse, a parent being treated violently, and having an incarcerated relative. “The more adverse childhood experiences you have, the more in danger of certain physical, psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues

(you are),” summarized Eshleman. In 2019, trauma-informed education became mandatory for staff at all Pennsylvania public schools with the passing of Senate Bill 144. The new legislation acknowledged that ACEs have a potentially long-term effect on a child’s functioning and wellbeing and implemented requisite training to help school board members, administrators, and faculty members to identify the signs and symptoms of trauma in students. Eshleman, who was named to the state’s Trauma Informed Practices in Schools Workgroup, and other professionals from the ACT Foundation lead workshops for educators, parents, representatives of professional agencies, and others who are interested.

The AARP Foundation TaxAide Program will again offer free tax service for taxpayers of all ages, especially adults age 50 and older. Volunteers will assist people with their 2019 taxes in the coming months. Last year in York County, nearly 100 volunteers filed more than 4,100 federal, state and local income tax returns at 16 different locations throughout York County. There is no fee, and AARP membership is not required. Taxpayers should bring their photo ID and proof of their Social Security or ITIN number for anyone on the tax return, including children or other claimed dependents. They are also encouraged

to bring the previous year’s tax return if it is available. AARP Tax-Aide volunteers can prepare most personal income tax returns, including those with basic self-employment income. They are not trained to complete business returns such as corporate, partnership, limited partnership, farm income, or rental income. These types of returns are beyond the scope of the Tax-Aide program. Beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 21, readers may call the Tax-Aide location nearest to them to make an appointment.

Eshleman explained that implementing a trauma-informed approach as an educator or other person who works with children and youths involves asking questions about the root cause of an individual’s behavior. Depending on the answer, more questions must be asked to determine how the adult can best work with the

Conquering the Trans Am Extreme Challenge Ride will be Micah Clark, 17, of Lancaster; Austin Hillegass, 16, of Lancaster; Zander Malanchuk, 15, of Columbia; Monny Smith, 19, of Mount Joy; Jaerrid Strawser, 16, of Columbia; and AJ Vega, 15, of New Holland. The ride will provide ample opportunity for each of the boys to apply Lifecycles’ motto: “Do hard things.” The riders will set out from Sunset Beach, Ore., in June and finish out in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Four adult riders will accompany the youths, and a support and gear (SAG) van driven by two adults will follow

SAG volunteers, and dinners at restaurants will fuel the riders as they tackle approximately 150,000 feet of climbing - a total equivalent to more than five times the height of Mount Everest. So it is with good reason that when Monny was asked what he believes the most challenging part of the trip will be, he responded, “The hills. I’m not looking forward to the hills.” Training for the Trans Am ride will not only include lots of bicycling for the boys but weekly gym nights led by a personal trainer to cover cross-training.

Eastern York Pins Their Way Past Columbia by Eric Pyles

against seven losses to the Bulldogs with Garner pointing to Buser’s comeback win over Logan Aldinger at 195 as a big win for his squad. Baker (220) and Dandridge (285) followed with pinfall wins of their own to give the Golden Knights a short lived 18-6 lead. Six straight West York victories made it a 37-18 match with four weight classes remaining. Eastern claimed three of those four, all with bonus points but a forfeit at 170 sealed the win for the Bulldogs. Dice nabbed the first of those three with a quick forfeit win at 145. Kaleb Crean followed with an injury time victory over Peter Perez at 152 while Brock Bolton finished off the run with a 64 second pinfall of Austin Hoffman at 160. GIRLS’ BASKETBALL A fairly big litmus test for a basketball team, especially a high school version, is how they bounce back from a loss. The Eastern York girls’ basketball team aced their test, posting a 40-38 victory over Manheim Central roughly 15 hours after a 62-50 loss to West York. The Lady Golden Knights’ first action of the new year was the West York loss on January 3rd where shaky first and fourth quarters proved too much to overcome. Breana Grim’s solid work in the middle frames, where she scored eight of her team high 17 points, allowed the Lady Golden Knights to hang with West York but a 39-27 Lady Bulldog advantage in the opening and closing frames was all that was needed. “I felt like we were right there with them,” said head coach Brad Weaver. “A couple missed layups here, a couple turnovers there.” Mara Weaver chipped in 13 points and Victoria Zerbe 10 in the loss.

The Golden Knights had little time to worry about the loss with their next game taking place on Saturday January 4th as part of the War of Roses. That sent Eastern York to Hempfield where they battled Lancaster Mennonite and came home with a 65-64 victory. “Very proud of our guys,” said Seitz. “To be able come back, basically 12 hours later, and get off to a hot start which was really key for us to get that West York game out of the way, out of our minds and focus on our opponent in Mennonite.” The hot start led to a 25-12 lead after the opening frame but the Golden Knights cooled off from there which led to a 16-15 edge for Mennonite in the second quarter. Eastern York was able to stretch that 12point, 40-28 halftime lead, to 14 points with a slim edge in the third but the Blazers staged a furious fourth quarter rally that led to a 24-11 run and shrank Eastern’s 14point lead all the way down to a single point which was enough to secure the win. Trevor Seitz dropped a team high 20 points while Cunningham added 14 and Micah Myers 12 points. Cole Fisher led all scorers with 26 points for Lancaster Mennonite.

Making A Difference Every Day In The Field of Senior Care The field of senior care offers employment opportunities for people with a variety of skills and talents. The senior care industry includes many different positions that are vital to ensuring that senior living communities provide the best possible care for residents as they age. Representatives from the industry note that working in the field of senior care can be a rewarding career choice for individuals with a passion for helping the senior population. “One of the many perks (of working in senior care) is having the opportunity to be part of something bigger and having the opportunity each and every day to affect people’s lives in a positive way,” explained Kim Focht, director of human resources at Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community (QPRC), 625 Robert Fulton Highway, Quarryville. “Our residents are our primary focus,” noted Kelly Miller, director of sales and marketing at Heatherwood Senior Living Community, 3180 Horseshoe Pike,

Honey Brook. “This is their home, and they should be made to feel important and well cared for. Patience and understanding are key. Caring about how well our residents are treated is our main focus.” For Alicia Erdman, sales director for Legend Senior Living of Lititz, 80 W. Millport Road, something she enjoys about working in the senior care industry is the “satisfaction of knowing you were able to help a family and they no longer have to worry about their loved one’s overall safety.” Nurses are in high demand to fill various roles within senior care. Retirement communities offer positions for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), and Registered Nursing Assessment Coordinators. A license is required to work as an RN or LPN. A certification is needed to serve as a CNA, but some senior care employers will help staff members obtain the certification.

“We (at QPRC) do provide this education as well as pay our staff to get the education,” noted Focht. Personal care aides and medication technicians are also needed. A certification is required to serve as a med tech, with some employers providing and paying for the necessary training to staff members. “If you are serious, after 90 days (at Heatherwood), we will train and pay for the med tech certification, with the promise of a one-year employee commitment,” noted Miller. Other positions offered in the field of senior care include several roles within dining services for servers, cooks, dishwashers, prep cooks, dietary aides, and managers. Also needed are housekeepers, laundry aides and assistants, maintenance and renovations team members, activities aides, and receptionists. The field of senior care also includes home care professionals, who serve as caregivers, companions, and transportation providers to help seniors continue to live independently in their homes. Full-time, part-time, temporary, and PRN (as needed) employment opportunities are offered in the field of senior care. As facilities care for residents around the clock, employees are needed for all shifts. Nursing jobs offer a variety of options and flexibility, allowing for people craft a work schedule that fits with their current season of life

No matter which position they are interested in, one key attribute for senior care jobseekers to exhibit is dependability. “We’re looking for someone who is reliable and shares a passion for seniors,” explained Erdman. Other representatives from the senior care industry noted that displaying some longevity on a resume, without a lot of job hopping, is also a plus for those looking to get hired. Focht added that employers also look for individuals who have the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Experience in the industry is preferred, but not required. “Bring a positive, team-like attitude, and we will train you,” noted Miller. “These careers require a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. They are both physically and emotionally demanding, and - at the same time - endlessly rewarding,” said Focht.

The Lancaster School of Psychodrama and Experiential Psychotherapies will offer a four-part series on trauma-informed care with experiential and creative arts methods. This quarterly series focuses on best practices for traumainformed care, particularly the safe application of experiential therapies, including psychodrama, sociometry, Family Constellations, art making, and meditation. “Creating Safety and Connection: The Basics of Trauma-Informed Care” will be offered on Friday, Jan. 31 (with a snow date of Friday, Feb. 7). “Creating Body Awareness: The Body Remembers What the Mind Forgets” will be presented on Friday, April 17. “Creating the Bigger Picture: Addressing and Healing Ancestral Trauma” will be offered on Friday, July 17, and “Creating Possibilities: Post-Traumatic Growth as a Reality” will be presented on Friday, Oct. 23. According to Karen Carnabucci, the school’s founder and one of the instructors of the series, traumainformed care is an approach that acknowledges the effects of trauma, recognizes the impact of trauma on behavior, and responds in a manner that is supportive, encouraging, and empowering. Participants will learn how trauma-informed care is different than trauma treatment; a strength-based action-oriented model, adapted for a high level of safety and containment on multiple levels; how to

deal with the reluctant or resistant client; how trauma-informed care supports relapse prevention with addictions and eating disorders; how to safely incorporate experiential activities and creative arts therapies in trauma-informed care; and self-care as a route to nourish the professional and provide deeper care of client or patient. The series is intended for mental health professionals, educators, physicians, nurses, health care administrators, first responders, creative arts therapists, alternative health practitioners, midwives, youth leaders, school counselors, human resources specialists, addictions professionals, and others interested in trauma-informed care. The instructors will be Carnabucci and Sharon Czabafy, both of whom have experience with trauma care and treatment, substance abuse and addictions, and experiential and expressive therapies. Classes are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, offering up to 24 CE credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists, and licensed counselors, plus psychodrama hours. Psychology and Act 48 credits are pending. An early bird discount will be available until Monday, Jan. 20. The fee includes handouts and healthy snacks. Readers may visit for additional information and registration links or call or text 717-466-0788.
