The Hamburg Journal is happy to provide the following business-related news from our area:

Trover Health System joins Baptist Health Baptist Health (formerly Baptist Healthcare System) has announced that Trover Health System is joining Baptist as its eighth hospital in the state. Effective Nov. 1, Trover Health System will become Baptist Health Madisonville. Trover – located in Madisonville – began exclusive discussions with Baptist nearly a year ago after selecting Baptist from proposals submitted by several healthcare organizations. LifePoint Hospitals and Owensboro Medical Health System were also considered as finalists in the process. Each finalist was selected based on its ability to assist Trover with the design and implementation of new models of care and payment reform, access to capital, experience with recruiting physicians and building solid physician relationships, and developing service line partnerships. After an extensive evaluation process, Baptist was chosen as the system of choice by the Trover Board of Directors. “We couldn’t have chosen a finer addition to our already strong, statewide network of hospitals,” said Baptist Health President and CEO Tommy J. Smith. “And we’re equally proud that Trover chose Baptist when looking for a partner. Through the combined resources of these longstanding healthcare institutions, we will both benefit from a shared focus on putting patient care first through strategic partnerships with our physicians.” “This is a monumental day in the history of healthcare in Hopkins County and the surrounding communities,” said E. Berton Whitaker, president and CEO of Baptist Health Madisonville. “By joining the Baptist Health family, we are positioning our health system to address the ever-changing needs of providing health care in the years to come. Both Trover and Baptist value our patients, our employees and our communities. We share common missions and our culture and tradition of community service are well aligned so that together, we can build upon and further strengthen the depth and breadth of the services provided by our organization.” Plans are already under way which demonstrate the benefits of the relationship. In response to the community’s growing need for primary care physicians, Baptist Health Madisonville is actively recruiting for internal medicine

and family practice physicians. Renovations also are planned for the mother/baby unit, emergency department and same day surgery, in addition to updates to other areas of the hospital. There will be an emphasis on updating health care technology and facilities at the Madisonville campus, while Baptist Health also offers access to a statewide network of hospitals, outpatient facilities and physicians ready to respond to patients’ needs. In addition to Baptist Health Madisonville, Baptist Health includes Baptist Hospital East (Louisville), Baptist Hospital Northeast (La Grange), Baptist Regional Medical Center (Corbin), Central Baptist Hospital (Lexington), Western Baptist Hospital (Paducah), Oak Tree Hospital at Baptist Regional Medical Center and its newest addition, Baptist Health Richmond. Baptist Health also manages Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown and Russell County Hospital in Russell Springs. Baptist Healthcare System, founded in 1924, announced its new name as Baptist Health on September 5. The new name unifies the family of hospitals and health-related entities and helps to better align medical expertise, services and resources to provide a continuum of care throughout the state.

To All Our Valued Customers, Readers & Friends, This year concludes with a time that we should all be thankful for —o ne that allows us to give to others and spend quality time with people we love the most.

For example, this month’s cover showcases some of the most popular gifts sold by Joli Salon and Day Spa in Hamburg. It should take a lot of the guesswork out of your gift list. They will be offering nature’s best gift ideas at their gifting event. See pages 10-11.

On Deck with Cody Decker A new column about Hamburg’s happenings received far fewer grey hairs than I did this time last year. Though it may seem intense and hectic at times, the crowds and traffic are nowhere near as bad as it is across town and the majority of the main stores the mall has to offer can be found here, maybe even a few that are Hamburg specific.

Alright, I’ll admit it, I’ve already pulled National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Home Alone 1 and Home Alone 2 off of the shelf and watched them a couple of times. I couldn’t help it. After Thanksgiving, the vibe of Christmas sets in and I always have the urge to watch, what I like to consider, the best and funniest Christmas movies out there. You can feel it everywhere though no matter what your stimulus. Black Friday has come and gone, ravaged stores in its path, and each store has reloaded and is ready for more. Never fret ... shopping ensues and does so in its strongest form. Each and every store you go in from here until at least Jan. 1 will likely be packed with shoppers and those post Christmas returners and exchangers.

Take The Sportsman’s Warehouse for example. It can’t be found anywhere else in town, parking is great and when I went in there the other day, I felt as if I had died and went to my dad’s version of heaven. I say that because he is an avid outdoorsman and loves to hunt, fish, camp, hike, etc., and this is a place that has anything and everything he could possibly wish for this holiday season. It’s definitely a place to keep in mind if you have a friend or relative you can classify in that same category. With the women, the possibilities are virtually endless, so there’s no need to go into great detail there. Also, for the light, casual or heavy drinker in the family, liquor barn is only a stoplight or two away from the heart of shopping, and it’s full of the easiest to wrap gifts around; just slap a bow on a bottle of bourbon or wine and say “merry Christmas.” Another plus Hamburg has on the mall is its food selection. When holiday shopping has got the best of you and you need to refuel, the high variety of restaurants available here strongly trumps that of a mere food court.

But that’s all right. Shopping for the ones we love is what brings the Christmas joy to the hearts of the givers and receivers alike. For that, it’s worth standing in line for 20 minutes to check out in each store.

This column is supposed to be about new things and businesses making their way into Hamburg, but given the time of year and the feeling in the air I felt that it would only be right to throw my insight into the holiday shopping scene.

I’ve almost completed my shopping this year and compared to last year’s adventures in the Christmas shopping world, this has been a cakewalk. The majority of my shopping last year was at Fayette Mall and 20 minutes there in a line would seem like a blessing. This year, however, I stuck around the Hamburg area and most definitely

Christmas is in full swing, and we are all poised and focused on making it the best we can for the ones we care most about. I wish you all the best of luck this December as the time for good old Saint Nick draws nearer, and to all a merry Christmas.

Perry receives American Diabetes Association’s award Stewart Perry, of Lexington, has received the American Diabetes Association’s prestigious Wendell Mayes Jr. Award for Lifetime Service in the Cause of Diabetes. This award recognizes outstanding lifetime achievement in the cause of diabetes. He was presented with the award at the association’s Community Volunteer Leadership Conference that took place in New Orleans. Perry is known as a passionate and tenacious advocate of diabetes-related issues on both the state and federal levels. He was diagnosed with diabetes in 1990 and immediately became a volunteer for the association. He was appointed to the Kentucky Affiliate Board of Directors and chair of the bluegrass chapter. He served as a member and was chair-elect when the affiliate board became a part of the national organization.

Perry went on to serve as a regional chair and chair of the national advocacy committee. He has served on many local, regional and national association task forces and committees. He was elected and served three years as a member of the association’s board of directors and then served as vice-chair of the board, chair-elect and then chair of the board. He is currently serving his second year as chair of the bluegrass chapter for his third time in 20 years. Perry resides in Lexington and is the co-owner of Perry & Perry State Farm Insurance. The American Diabetes Association is the largest voluntary health organization committed to the fight to stop diabetes. Each year, the association honors volunteers who have made a significant contribution to this fight.

Larry Cordle, Red Barn Radio team up for UK Hospital show On December 5 at 7:30 p.m., Red Barn Radio will present an Appalachian Christmas IV in Pavilion A of the new UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital. The free show will be headlined by Grammy Winning singer/songwriter, Larry Cordle, simulcast live by WUKY. Red Barn Radio will also produce a television version of the night’s performances to air on KET during the Christmas Season [DTB]. The performance is free and open to staff, patients, family and the public. “We are thrilled to be working with UK HealthCare, its Arts in HealthCare initiative, KET and WUKY to bring the Christmas show to all those family members, staff and community who may need a small window of joy during in what can be an overwhelming time of year,” said Ed Commons, executive producer of Red Barn Radio. “And with the addition of KET set to broadcast the TV portion allows for more of Kentucky to experience

an evening, of and for the community, featuring some of the region’s best talent.” The UK Albert B. Chandler and the Arts in HealthCare program use the arts to create a healing environment. The concept is to make people feel more comfortable in a time of need and to invite people to visit the hospital when they are well. UK HealthCare continues its ongoing commitment to providing the best medicine has to offer within a healing environment that conveys the unique spirit of Kentucky. “With the opening of Pavilion A, the first phase of the visual arts program is almost complete; our efforts at this time will be focused on bringing more programmatic and performance art into the space – music, dance, poetry, theatre – with an eye forward to interactive art making for patients, families and staff,” said Jackie Hamilton, director for UK Arts in HealthCare.

The difference between Santa and Mrs. Claus’s New Year Resolutions

fter visions of sugar-plums, frosting covered cookies, egg nog, and candy canes dance in their heads and then bellies for two months, it is most likely that the Claus’ will find their belts a little snug come January first. So the question arises, if they endeavor into a biggest loser competition of weight loss by restricting food intake to the same quantities and then racing the reindeers the same distance, who will end up losing more? Will the simple fact of man vs women make a difference? Is it true that men lose faster then women? If so, then why? First, we need to make a few assumptions. As Santa and Mrs. Claus are celebrities, they do not publish their weights, but we can assume from children’s drawings that Santa is about 5’10” and 220 lbs while Mrs. Claus (leaked to the public by elves) is 5’5” and 185lbs. This happens to be same as the 75th percentile for American’s height & weight chart making them both obese. Thus, as Santa is starting at a heavier weight to begin with, he will likely lose more pounds. To play fairly in these reindeer games, you should always compare percentage of initial body weight lost. Santa does however start with numerous physiological advantages. First, he has higher levels of testosterone. Testosterone builds muscles which is why men on average tend to have more muscle mass. Muscle burns calories stored in fat. This allows them to burn more calories throughout the day, even when at rest. Mrs. Claus, however, has more estrogen. Estrogen is designed to keep fat on a women’s body as it is necessary for the extra caloric requirements during pregnancy and breastfeeding. As women are designed by nature to carry this higher percentage of body fat, they are more likely to have their metabolism slowed during weight loss to hang onto extra fat longer. That often can mean that she will have to work harder to lose weight than her husband. Another advantage for Santa is that men’s bodies respond more quickly to exercise by building muscle. Women often have a lower tolerance for exercise with smaller lung capacities. This means, even if Santa and Mrs. Claus are doing the same activity, women can physiologically feel like they are working harder, but the men will

still end up burning more calories from an increase in muscle mass. Recent data also shows us that on average physical activity by women tends to be 37% lower than that of men. This definitely holds true for this loving couple. Santa must exercise more throughout the year to be able to run through every household on Christmas Eve, but Mrs. Claus seems to enjoy staying home and making the cookies. This combined effect of men burning more calories throughout the day causing a higher metabolism along with a higher level of physical activity, means Santa physiologically should be able to lose weight faster. Mrs. Claus has another physiologic factor occurring that is both good and bad with weight loss. We can assume she is menopausal. While this does often mean a decrease in estrogen and increase in testosterone, the reason why we don’t see Mrs. Claus bench pressing elves is because muscle mass decreases throughout life and occurs at a faster rate at her age. If she didn’t have much muscle to begin with, a further loss can be dangerous. So whether she is losing weight or not, it is actually more important for her to maintain and build muscle mass than have a few less cookies. So, if Santa is male and relatively active, why is he still chubby and plump with a round belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly? It still comes back to calories in versus calories out. Even if Santa was running two miles a day, he would only burn about 200 calories, but if he consumed a full glass of egg nog, he would consume almost twice that amount of calories. This is where Mrs. Claus has an advantage over Santa. Typically, men often are more confident in their ability to exercise than make wise food choices, so turn to physical activity as their main pathway to weight loss. Women, however, tend to be more confident in their knowledge of food and which choices to make during weight loss. So, if Mrs. Claus does mainly focus on nutrition and Santa only focuses on exercise, Mrs. Claus may actually do better.

first and corrects it, will likely win the game. For example, many women attribute their excess weight to eating when they are emotional, stressed, or bored. Feeding hundreds of elves, having your husband always away and getting all the fame certainly can play its toll, so if Mrs. Claus gained her initial weight from cookie munching away her emotions, then correcting this behavior will have profound effects. Men, however, are most calorically vulnerable in times of happiness and joy such as parties, ball games, sports bar, or holiday snacking. And who is more happy and filled with joy than jolly old St. Nick himself. Since Santa has always been active, it’s likely the cookies and milk caught up through the years so if he is only trying to increase physical activity, he’ll likely lose the race in the end. Thus, nutritional, exercise, psychology, and behaviors all play a role in weight loss, but what we don’t know are both of their medical histories as the elves were constrained by HIPAA laws. If Santa’s increased abdominal girth and high carbohydrate consumption has led him to have insulin resistance or diabetes, weight loss will biochemically be harder for him. But if Lois and Chuck Mistletoe (Mrs. Claus’s siblings) all have slow working thyroids and she hasn’t been tested in a while, she may be at a chemical disadvantage. Who will win? Santa may seem to have better odds, but Mrs. Claus may have better health and more determination. The point is this. Whether you are male or female, tall or short, Santa or Joe the Plumber, weight loss will be different for everyone. The best predictor of success will actually be getting evaluated by a weight loss specialist, having a plan, and then sticking to it. To start your race towards better health, reserve your spot with Lexington’s top non surgical bariatric physicians through Medical Bariatrics of Lexington at (859) 263-SLIM. They are found not at the North Pole, but right in the Hamburg region of Lexington. It will be the best step you make.

The reason for their initial weight gain is also likely to be different; so whoever figures this out
