MOMENTS IN TIME
The History Channel
On May 27, 1939, a ship carrying 937 Jewish refugees is turned away from Cuba. The ship sailed close to Florida, hoping to disembark there, but a State Department telegram stated that the asylum-seekers must ﬁrst “await their turns on the waiting list and qualify for and obtain immigration visas.” After appeals to Canada also were denied, the ship was forced to sail back to Europe.

“When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly inter-twined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?” - Seneca
CARE FOR TOOLS PROPERLY
Homeowners often choose to save money and learn valuable skills by doing their own home improvement projects. These minor or major renovations are made much more successful by having the right tools for the job. Investing in good tools can be smart, but those tools are only effective if they are accessible and in good repair. Homeowners who emphasize taking care of their tools can make DIY projects that much easier and more rewarding.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CONVERTING AN ATTIC
Climate control: Attics are converted to provide residents with more livable space. Converted space is only livable if the climate within the attic can be controlled so it’s cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An existing HVAC unit needs to efﬁciently heat and cool an extra room. If it can’t, bills might spike because the rest of the home likely won’t be as comfortable, forcing homeowners to adjust thermostats to offset that discomfort. That also could affect the unit’s life expectancy. Before going forward with an attic renovation, homeowners should contact HVAC professionals to determine if attic spaces can be serviced with the existing units and ductwork, or if an alternative arrangement must be worked out to make the spaces livable.

WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR MOBILE PHONE ETIQUETTE
Obey the rules. Movie theaters, airline cabins, libraries, and various other places have rules in place governing the use of mobile phones. These rules are designed to ensure everyone has a safe, enjoyable experience. Breaking these rules can be a safety risk in certain situations, but is more often merely inconsiderate of those around you. If you must use a mobile phone but you’re in a restricted area, excuse yourself and tend to the matter elsewhere.By Fiﬁ Rodriguez

GROWING TRENDS IN TODAY’S HOMES
Smaller homes: Home sizes in the United States steadily increased for decades, eventually leading to an average of 2,453 square feet in 2014, according to U.S. Census ﬁgures. However, Realtor.com reported in 2015 that new construction homes have already begun to shrink by 40 square feet. There seems to be a slight trend toward more modest homes as people consider affordability and maintenance on larger properties. The National Association of Home Builders states buyers are now looking for smaller, more livable homes with ﬂexible ﬂoor plans, energy-efﬁcient appliances and plenty of storage space.

What can I do to guarantee my perennials come back in the spring? For example, my lavender didn’t make it through this past winter. I planted last May and it had good blooms.
When it comes to gardening, guaranteeing anything can be risky business. There are just so many variables to consider. We can, however,doourresearchandincrease ourchancesof success.
When planting perennials, such as lavender, one of the ﬁrst things to check includes hardiness of the particular variety or cultivar you are planting. Lavender originated in the

MEMORIAL DAY: REMEMBER THOSE WHO PAID THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICEBY SUZIE WELLS
Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor the brave menandwomenwhoservedintheUSmilitarytoprotect our freedoms but who lost their lives in that service.
Memorial Day serves as a solemn reminder of the sacri ces our servicemembers make each day.
Communities converge with school and local bands, honor guards, dignitaries, service groups, and other citizens and community organizations to celebrate and honor the fallen. But why do we celebrate as we do?
Memorial Day’s origins trace back to the years following the American Civil War, with its birthplace o cially designated as Waterloo, NY. e Seneca County town of 5,000, centrally located between Rochester, Syracuse, and Ithaca, became known for its role in the Women’s Rights movement because a lot of the planning for the famous 1848 Seneca Falls convention occurred in Waterloo at the Hunt and M’Clintock houses. However, in 1866, Waterloo held the nation’s rst formal remembrance of veterans who died in the Civil War, and the US government recognizes the town as the o cial birthplace of Memorial Day.
According to Waterloo history, in 1865, Henry C. Welles “watched as a lone widow walked to the cemetery to place owers on the grave of her deceased Civil War soldier husband. How soon they forget, Welles thought, resolving to do something to make sure that those who gave their lives in defense of their country would not be forgotten.” Welles suggested placing owers on the graves of the “patriotic dead” from the Civil War, but nothing happened that rst year. When Welles mentioned it the following year to General John B. Murray, a patriotic Civil War hero, the two began plans for a local citizens’ committee to celebrate the soldiers who gave the ultimate sacri ce for their country (waterloony.com).
On May 5, 1866, with ags half-sta , the Village of Waterloo was “draped with evergreen and mourning black,” and a parade of veterans, civic groups, and residents marched to the three village cemeteries, where ceremonies celebrated soldiers whose graves were then decorated. So began the annual tradition of recognizing soldiers who served and died for the US.
In 1868, General John A. Logan, a “political general” in the Union Army, declared the rst national Decoration Day, May 30th, time to decorate the graves of the fallen and honor their sacri ces through ceremonies.AccordingtotheUnitedServiceOrganizations(USO), on May 20, 1868, more than 5,000 people decorated the graves of the 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
In May 1966, the State of New York o cially declared Waterloo, NY as the birthplace of Memorial Day, celebrating the centennial of the patriotic tradition. In 1971, the US Congress declared the federal holiday of Memorial Day to be celebrated on the last Monday each May.
Communities across the area and nation celebrate Memorial Day, coming together for parades and traditions. Waterloo retains its historic traditions, hosting a special Celebrate Commemorate Memorial Day event the weekend of May 26-28th. is event hosts Civil War reenactors from across the Eastern US, including infantry, signal corps, artillery, and fraternal organizations. Encampments with reenactors present Living Histories of Civil War camp life. Reenactors serve as dignitaries, President Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Dr. Mary Walker, and spy Belly Boyd, a Northern sympathizer, and Reverend Scott.
Saturday, May 27th features a parade with wounded warriors from the Canandaigua VA Hospital, motorcycle riders from the Patriot Guard and American Legion, as well as bands, oats, and military groups.
On May 30th, which Waterloo always observes as Memorial DayinkeepingwithLogan’sOrders,childrenwilldecorateveterans’ graves,therewillbeprayerservicesinthevillagecemeteries,andthe village’s VFW and American Legion will conduct a military parade at 4 pm. Ceremonies in Lafayette Park will feature government o cials and special dignitaries.
Memorial Day 2023 marks Waterloo’s 157th consecutive Memorial Day observance. Last year’s commemoration included the dedication of the Purple Heart Wall of Honor in Lafayette Park. is Memorial Day, check out Waterloo’s Celebrate Commemorate event and/or pay respects in your own town.

NOW HERE’S A TIP! ByJoann Derson
* Use a mesh bag to hold owers in place in a vase. Just roll or wad it up and put it down in the bottom of the vase. When you are done with the owers, you can use a stick to swish the bag around and loosen any gunk inside the vase when cleaning. Launder the mesh or just toss.
* “To make a waterproof mattress protector in a pinch, slit a large garbage bag down the side and bottom, lay it at over the mattress and cover with a beach towel. en put the sheet over that. e garbage bag protects the mattress; the towel makes it comfortable. “ -- U.D. in Tennessee
* “Keep extra liner bags in the bottom of the garbage can. ey are handy, so you will be more likely to reline the can as soon as you take the garbage out.” -- K.P. in Massachusetts
* Keep a box of baking soda in the fridge. When it’s time to replace it, dump it down the drain and follow with a small bottle of vinegar and a hot water ush. Keep your kitchen smelling nice and use less chemicals to do it.
* “Here’s a fun invitation to make and receive: Blow up a balloon and pinch (don’t tie). Write the details of the party on the balloon in permanent marker. Let it dry fully before you de ate it. en send it!” -- R.A. in Washington

There are even some that are made to be water repellent and stain resistant with anti-odor properties for those in warmer climes. Since this is the layer that is in direct contact with your skin, you want something that will allow moisture to escape as you sweat.

PAW’S CORNERBy Sam Mazzotta
Should I Withhold Water From My Puppy to Aid Housetraining?
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I purchased a puppy who is 2 months old from a breeder in another state. I’m having trouble housetraining her. She drinks water all day, but she can’t hold her pee and ends up wetting on the oor. I work from home, but I can’t catch her and correct her. Instead, I think I should just take the water bowl away for most of the day. Will that work? -Frustrated in Tallahassee
DEAR FRUSTRATED: Do not take away the water bowl. Pets should always have access to water, regardless of their housetraining status.
Puppies have really tiny bladders and cannot hold their water for very long. So they pee much more frequently than you realize. But they shouldn’t have to su er and be thirsty just because their accidents are inconvenient for you.
is link has detailed information and advice on managing puppy housetraining issues: iaabcjournal. org/housetraining-hang-ups/, including when to contact a veterinarian.
One great piece of advice here is to create a puppy playpen and line it with pee pads, as well as water-resistant chew toys. As your puppy grows and gets better at holding their bladder and understands your commands better, gradually take away pads until there is just one “target” in the pen.
Above all, be patient with your new puppy. She is starting out in a whole new world, in a tiny body that is constantly changing and growing. Set a routine with frequent outdoor potty breaks in the same spot. Reward her when she pees outside. She will get this -- eventually!

Nurse Claims Wound Must Heal From the Inside Over Time
DEAR DR. ROACH: Whenever I got a wound while I was young, my mother would take me to the hospital to get stitches. I am now 94. I went to get a wound seen, and the nurse said that it needed to heal from the inside. They treated it with gauze, wrapping and then a stocking. It took months to heal. Why the big change? Why couldn’t they have just put in stitches and saved me months of healing?-- D.J.
ANSWER: A wound can be sutured (stitched) closed when it is new, clean and regular. A wound cannot be closed if it is infected or irregular. Most chronic wounds cannot be closed by stitching. Also, if there is a lot of swelling around the wound, there may be so much pressure that the wound cannot be closed and must be allowed to heal over time. This is often the case with larger wounds. Basic principles of wound healing are to treat and prevent infection by bacteria or other germs, control pain and bleeding, and avoid treatments that are toxic to open wounds. I hear very frequently from people who have mistreated wounds. Strong agents like hydrogen peroxide, iodine, bleach and even soaps will kill more of your body’s healing cells than bacteria, and they should not be used in open wounds.
I also hear people say wounds “need air,” but wounds heal faster when they are moist. A barrier like petrolatum (Vaseline or many other proper wound-care agents) and a clean cover will accelerate wound healing. Most wounds do not need topical antibiotics, and these should only be used when recommended by an expert. The best experts for wound care are wound-care nurses and, in extreme cases, vascular or plastic surgeons. It takes time for a wound to heal. How much time depends on many factors, but a time span of months is not unusual, especially with a person in their 90s, who may not have the same blood supply they had when they were much younger.
Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual questions, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible. Readers may email questions to ToYourGoodHealth@med.cornell.edu.

DID YOU KNOW? When nurses go to work each day, many report to hospitals while others work at private practices. For others, a day at the ofﬁce takes place at research labs. According to the online nursing resource Nurse.org, research nurses develop and implement studies to investigate and provide information on new medications, vaccinations and medical procedures. Research nurses, sometimes referred to as clinical nurse researchers or nurse researchers, typically have advanced degrees, and many ﬁrst work as research assistants, clinical data collectors and/or clinical research monitors to gain some practical experience as they pursue or consider pursuing their degrees. Some research nurses even conduct independent research, though Nurse.org notes that such professionals need advanced degrees such as an MSN or Ph.D. to pursue such a path. More information about becoming a research nurse can be found at www.Nurse.org.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and with the current state of human a airs, social and emotional well-being seems at the forefront of a lot of people’s minds. We are o en reminded that “Self-care is not self-indulgence. It is selfpreservation” (Audre Lorde). Or that “Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s le of you” (Katie Reed). “When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the over ow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel” (Eleanor Brown)
It’s o en hard to remember to care for ourselves rst, to be sure our oxygen mask is securely fastened before we help another. As a mom, I took a very long time to fully realize the importance of this concept. I always put my kids’ needs and desires rst, last, always. Unfortunately at the sacri ce of my own mental health. Life is tough sometimes. It challenges us to be our best, to show compassion for others, to bravely face adversity, to keep our eyes on goals, to stay true to our convictions. It’s tough sometimes to keep our heads above water when the world seems so dark and draining.
Heather Newton, CEO of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Rochester, says, “ ere are ve vital, life-sustaining organs in the human body: heart, kidneys, lungs, liver, and brain. Of those ve organs, only one—your brain—is stigmatized when it is not functioning the way it should.” I for one am not ashamed to admit I su er as life hurls challenges my way. I wish I could say I stand strong every moment, even every day, but then I’d lie.
I love the idea that the mental health revolution shi s perspectives on one of our most crucial organs. e Dalai Lama says, “If you feel ‘burnout’ setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself.”
I withdraw and restore myself on hikes in the nearby park. Sometimes I go with a friend, sometimes I go with headphones to lose myself in the natural world and my tunes, and sometimes I just go as I am, seeking peace and quiet, away from human trials. Squirrels don’t care if I am out of tune as I sing so ly; birds don’t care if I skip and dance along the path. No one cares what I look like. As long as I’m peaceful and don’t intrude upon their business, they couldn’t care less.
A er my interludes, I almost always return to human life refreshed, ready to face the challenges de jour. O en, I have come to conclusions, some ideas about what weighs on me, so it’s a win-win. I’ve grown to nally realize I’m not actually taking away time from my motherly duties to adventure solo or with a friend in the woods. In fact, I am being a better parent by taking time to refresh myself. I can honestly say that this past year has been especially challenging for me, and I needed help beyond what hikes or conversations with close friends or hobbies could do to heal me. I feel no shame in sharing that I sought professional help. Many of us do or have done so at some points in our lives. e (hopefully) impartial listeners help us gain perspective on challenges.
is Mental Health Awareness Month and throughout the year, remember to take time for you. Reach out to friends, family, coworkers when you feel challenges weighing you down too much. And connect with professional resources when those don’t work. Perhaps you need a bit of oxygen before you proceed in your incredible existence. You are a perfectly imperfect human being. You deserve to be content with life. ere is always hope. You are
valued. You are loved. You matter. Reach out for help when you need it.

Mary Immaculate Parish Community
Shout out to the Mary Immaculate Parish Community in East Bethany for the delicious chicken BBQ Sunday, 5/21. The service from volunteers there is always so welcoming. It is great to see a supportive community come together. Thank you!
It’s the little things that brighten my day I love when I see people hold a door open for a stranger, pick up something a passerby dropped, or simply smile at each other. This life is hard enough without people ignoring each other and living in their own little worlds. I love seeing humanity shining on each other.
Thanks to the Avon Garden Club
Every year the members of this club do an amazing job planning, planting and weeding the gardens in and around our downtown and Circle Park. Much gratitude to those who give of their time and talents to make our town a more beautiful place.
I am a senior citizen with multiple health concerns and ﬁnd it difﬁcult to walk great distances. I rarely shop the big box stores because it is too difﬁcult. I purchased a patio chair online with the option for curbside pick up. I checked in upon notiﬁcation of readiness and was assigned a pick up slot. When I got to the store, the slot was not there and neither was a clerk. I do not text nor do I do apps so I was out of luck in getting help. I ended up having to walk into the store to get help which also was not available. PLEASE…could some consideration be given to us! Many of us still live in our homes and are consumers, but we choose not to text or to have smart phones. Yet we need help in accessing purchases. I told the kind clerk who did ﬁnally help me to pass on this message. Will it make a difference? I hope so but doubt it. - A senior who was quite frustrated!
Walking in the Woods
From one dog walker to another… I bet you love taking your dog for walks on trails around town as much as I do. Have you noticed all the lovely trillium, trout lilies, and may apple popping up this spring? Have you also noticed the brightly colored bags of dog poop dropped along our trails? Did you leave one, thinking you’d grab it on your way back? I hope you remember to do that, but even so, I’d rather not see it on my walk in the woods. Please carry it with you. I do and it’s no big deal. Thanks and see you on the trail!
Our water supply is being threatened, especially in the west. Recently traveling and going through airport security, as usual, I had a half used bottle of water and had to discard it in order to pass through security. What a waste. There must be some way to reclaim this precious resource and not just at airports.
