Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Welcome

Make sure your wishes are followed!

Center Meals and Limited Activities have resumed on Fridays.

Effective Friday , March 2, 2012 the Klamath Basin Senior Center reopened for noon meal service and for other limited services and activities. Necessary transportation services also resumed on this Marc Kane, Center Director date. Many patrons and members had urged the resumption of these services, and I ordered them resumed with the understanding and trust that we all do our part to maintain these services. A donation is asked for both meal and transportation services. In order to sustain these services the number of participants making a donation must increase and/or those making donations are asked to increase, if possible, what they are able to give. In recent weeks the average revenue collected for meals has been just over $1.75 per meal. We cannot continue service at this rate, but we are reopening our service in trust that average donations will increase. It is our goal to raise the average donation to $2.50. I know that there are some that cannot pay and we are especially reopening Friday services for this group. I also know, however, that there are many who could increase their contribution, so please, let us work together to see what we can do to improve the support of these services. The center is currently struggling to reduce expenses and eliminate operating at a serious loss, which has been the case throughout the past seven months. Please assist us in any way that you can to keep our center open and operating. Also please welcome our new head cook for noon meals and meals on wheels, Donna Millburn. You may already know her as the Bingo Cook, but she stepped up to assume this new position. She comes with extensive experience in food services. We expect that you will see improvements in our meal services as Donna takes on her new responsibilities. And finally we have added two new regular features to this publication, Active Senior. They are a poetry and prose corner to be called Expressions of Heart and Mind, and the republishing each month of Nancie Carlson’s regular Herald and News column encouraging senior health and exercise. Thanks Nancie for your contribution. Looking for other improvements? Let us know what you like. Marc Kane, Executive Director

Poets Corner Expressions of Heart and Mind

Romancing Alone

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Expressions of Heart and Mind a new addition to our publication Active Senior that will provide for the publication of poetry and other brief written words. To initiate this regular feature I have invited my good friend Dotte Shaffer to summit two pieces of her work originally published in 2000 by Dungeon Press under the title The Heart Remembers, a book of 25 poems by Dotte that begins with a piece At Thirty Something, and ends with another, At Seventy Something. The later is printed here, Enjoy!! And please submit something for us to consider printing in our next issue. Submittals should be sent to the attention of Marc Kane, Executive Director, Klamath Basin Senior Citizens Center.

At Seventy Something I like loving and being loved. There’s a contentment, a feeling of security and trust that makes up for the loss of thrills and anticipation. Almost. Romance; thrills, anticipation, passion . . . is seventy too old? Is all this just for the young? I used to think it was. Until I became one, I never realized that despite gray hair and wrinkles, young girls live in the hearts of aged bodies; still yearning, hungering for the touch that makes us know we’re alive. Yet, as I wax nostalgic, I realize I no longer have the stamina, the energy for the highs and lows of being IN love. I accept, that like the seasons, there is a time for loving and being loved. This is my time.

How old does one have to be To not want romance Is it just a woman thing Or do men miss it, too . . . It’s not about sex, you know It’s about a touch, a look A secret smile Shared moments of ‘remember when’ . . . It’s about unexpected gifts And unexpected praise A phone call just to say hello A sentimental card . . . Seventeen or seventy Random acts of romance Bring a smile A quivering of the heart . . . Reaffirming, renewing The memory of what is past Or what’s to come Romancing the heart . . .

Gift Shop News

The Gift Shop at the Senior Center is now open under a different name, “Crafty Ladee’s Gift Shop”. A new sign is being made for the entrance. Try to come by and see the many changes that have been made, if you haven’t already. We have painted, cleaned and rearranged the entire Gift Shop. As the new manager, I would like to thank Treva Bruce, Cheryl and Larry Gibbs and the Senior Center for their help in making this happen. Many hours of volunteering and hard work were put into this venture. I also want to thank the many people who gave us moral support and encouragement during this time. The new hours for April, May & June will be from 10 am to 3 pm, Monday thru Thursday. We also will be staying open on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 4 pm to 6 pm at the request of the Bingo players. This will be on a trial basis to see how it works out.

Feature Cleaning out the flotsam and jetsam Housekeeping — not my favorite thing to do. How about you? But, let’s translate this into our bodies. Did you know that our cells are filled with flotsam and jetsam that exercise helps clear out? Bear with me on this as it gets slightly technical. We all have structures (or organelles) within our cells that produce energy. These are called mitochondria. Cells also contain strings of proteins, cellular membranes, invasive viruses and bacteria, among other components. Over time, cells accumulate flotsam and jetsam that require “house” cleaning to remain efficient. This process of cleaning out is called autophagy (or selfeating). Have I lost you yet? A cell’s life Scientists have begun to believe that if the process of autophagy isn’t efficient, cells become choked, malfunction or die. It is thought that this inefficiency might contribute to the rise of disease, including diabetes, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s and cancer. Inefficiencies in autophagy also can contribute to agerelated sluggishness within the cell structure. I don’t know about you, but I’m sure feeling outwardly sluggish at times — struggling to win back that high energy that used to be readily available. Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center recently reported on a study of mice that holds promise for humans. You guessed it. Their research

Nancie Carlson Everyday Fitness supports the idea that exercise produces a more efficient cleaning out of the flotsam and jetsam in the cells; and thus can slow the disease-producing bits, plus slow the aging process. Stressed cells Studying autophagy is a relatively new approach to research. Their hypothesis is that when cells are stressed, as in physical exercise, they round up and consume superfluous bits of themselves more efficiently to keep the rest of the cell alive. It was a bit of a stretch for me to imagine how researchers could measure autophagy, but this is what they did. They simply had the lab mice run for 30 minutes. The mice had been medically treated — a bit sad — so the membranes within the cell that accumulate flotsam and jetsam glowed. After running, evidence suggests the mice’s cells were undergoing accelerated autophagy — meaning the cells were getting cleaned out and rejuvenated. There were other tests performed which might explain why some of us have better reactions than others to, let’s say, an aerobic class. But, generally, the research supports the idea that exercise produces a housekeeping function. It even convinced one of the researchers to become a more consistent exerciser. She bought a treadmill. Commitment What’s next for you? I sincerely hope whatever you decide, that you commit to consistent exercise — not a

sporadic venture. As a senior with perhaps some physical challenges, you don’t need to do high-level aerobics, but you do need to move more. Weather permitting, start walking outdoors, and over time, increase your speed and distance. The Steen Sports Park soccer building offers an indoor track for walking, plus, the outdoor trail is almost 3 miles. On it, there are cut-offs if you can’t make it all the way around. That said, it’s pretty muddy (and slippery) at the moment. If you have limited funds, most gyms and clubs in the area have senior rates. And, if you are in a residential care center, join in the classes offered. Think of the process of autophagy. The more you sit, the more tired you will feel and the less efficient your entire cellular structure. How about a daily, or maybe three times per week bit of housekeeping?
