Welcome Special Members Meeting May 15th We have been busy this past month participating in many budget hearings and making appeals wherever we can for additional help with our senior meals and transportation programs. Efforts with requests from the County have Marc Kane, Center Director been successful with the Budget Committee recommending a grant of $35,000. Our goal was to raise $90,000 from the County and City combined. Requests to the City are still in process with our next presentation to the Council coming on May 7th. It is clear that we will need to seek grants from additional sources as well if we expect to meet our goal. Demand for meals has increased by better than 50% over the last three years with the Center expected to provide over 90,000 meals this next year. Progress is being made on other fronts to expand and improve services available. Later this month we expect to reach an agreement with the County to establish a new branch library within the Klamath Falls center. Many of our patrons are looking forward to this new service and we are also eager to provide this service to the general public. It is expected that this will introduce many new people to the center and will provide for expanded opportunities for intergenerational experiences. Last month I reported on necessary organizational changes requested by the State to separate the Area Agency on Aging from the other activities of the Center. New bylaws have been prepared and reviewed by legal counsel that will provide two separate boards to oversee the AAA and the Center. The membership of the Center will be asked to approve the newly proposed bylaws on Tuesday, May 15th. The new bylaws will establish a new membership council to advise the board and to focus the attention of the membership on the many services offered and needed. Members are strongly encouraged to review the new bylaws and to support the many proposed organizational changes. These changes will be necessary in order to maintain the support of the State. I am encouraging all members to attend this very special meeting on the 15th.

A new Bingo Manager will be coming on board officially at the beginning of May. She is Peggy Sue Watson and I hope all will welcome her and give her your support. Our current manager, Linda Breeden, has provided years of valuable service with a high degree of dedication. Linda will continue with the Center managing Oregon Project Independence and many other duties she takes on as the need arises. Please take a moment if you have the opportunity to thank Linda for all that she has given to our Center and which I am sure she will continue to give. I have just completed three months in service as the Center’s Director. I am pleased to report that I have experienced a high degree of satisfaction in working with an excellent staff team, a group of people dedicated to serving seniors who all have great passion for what they do. I have also found my relationship with Center patrons to be rewarding. It is a wonderful group of people I have the pleasure to work with. Join us! We celebrate life!

Feature Bly Senior Lunch The six volunteers at Gearhart Elementary School in Bly served lunch to 48 seniors, 17 students, and three of school’s staff on Wednesday, April 25th. They work hard, laughing and smiling, cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the paper work. Every Wednesday there is hot lunch. Wednesdays are the only hot lunch days at the school where students have sack lunch brought in from Bonanza the other four days of the week by the Klamath County librarian. (The Bly branch of the library is also located at the school.) Years ago Senior lunches were served at the Fire Hall, moved to the former Senior Center, and then to the Assembly of God church. When the Bly junior high moved to Bonanza, there was some empty space in the school building. Doug Smith, the former principal of Gearhart Elementary, encouraged the library branch and the seniors to use the available space. The Senior lunch program has been at its current

location for about 4 years. May Maddock who helps to run the program, says they feel fortunate to have a rent free location. Lunch is served in the multipurpose room where people began arriving around 11:00, greeting one another, checking up on the week’s events and asking after one another’s health. At 11:30 the students arrive. As their line progresses through the kitchen they are greeted by the cooks who make positive connections with them. Most students take their trays of food back into the classrooms to eat. Just before noon Velma Stokes, one of the cooks, comes from the kitchen to greet the Seniors and to have them begin to line up for the meal. As they serve lunch, the cooks greet and chat with those moving through the line. Most of the diners are regulars with some coming from Beatty and Sprague River. “We’ve got a good community. They work very well together,” said Maddock. Lunch is served on real dishes, not paper or plastic. The aroma is appetizing and the portions are plentiful. “They’ve never run out of food yet,” commented Cindy Pollock who works at the sign up and raffle table along with Maddock. This is also a distribution point for the Klamath-Lake County Food Bank. Sterling Harris, a volunteer, picks

up bread, sweets and produce in Klamath Falls and delivers them to the multipurpose room in time for lunch. He says he is happy to do it, paying for his own gas, and getting a free lunch. One of the challenges for the cooks is the lack of a good cook stove. When their primary stove broke down about 6 months ago, they weren’t sure what they were going to do. Right now they make do with some slow cookers, and an “old fashioned” gas stove that has a temperamental oven. They have heard that a new stove will cost around $6000. This lunch arrangement seems to be a win-win for all involved. “The kitchen crew

loves seeing the kids and loves working with them,” Tracey Christensen, the head teacher, remarked. The students and staff enjoy having a hot lunch day. Overall, the students like the food they are served. “Some kids usually bring their lunches from home, but they don’t on Wednesdays”, she said. After lunch, as the seniors left, good byes and good wishes filled the air. Some checked the white board for next week’s menu on their way out.

Facts about Klamath Basin Senior Center Meals Programs The Klamath Senior Center provides senior meal sites in eight locations throughout Klamath County. In addition to congregate meal programs at each site two of the sites provides a Meals on Wheels Program delivering meals to homes as well. The Center in Klamath Falls is the principle site providing congregate meals 5 days a week and also providing Meals On Wheels including seven meals a week to home bound seniors. The other seven sites are satellite programs serving congregate meals once a week and one of the satellites also provides a Meals Wheels Programs as well. This issue of Active Senior the accompanying article features the satellite program in Bly. Demand for meals has increased dramatically as economic conditions have worsened. Once serving or delivering just over 60,000 meals County wide in 2010, the Klamath program expects to serve more than 90,000 meals next this next year. The Center is asking for additional assistance this next year from the City,County, United Way, and the community in general to meet increasing demand. Additional volunteers are also being sought.

My Mom Told Me To!! My mom told me, when I was a little girl, that growing up should be fun. Oh, she said I would stumble and fall many times, But then I should just get up and run! My mom told me school time would be a time of learning new things So study hard and do the best you can! Knowledge would come in due time, she was sure.. But memory will fade again and again! My mom told me growing up would be the hardest thing to do. But she wanted to impress upon my heart, Some of the most important things to learn, she said Was to be honest, love others, be true.., and that is only smart. My mom told me, if I became a mother.. My life would be filled with joy and some tears, B ut raising your children she said, would be easier – When you have Jesus to calm your fears! My Mom was smart, as you can see.. She taught me things that were good for me. She showed by example of her life each day, How to behave, and what I should say. And even now, I try very hard all these things to do. . Because you see . . my Mom was right . . . AND SHE TOLD ME TOO!!! Audrey E. Davis “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOMS, GRANDMOTHERS AND GREAT GRANNY’S!!”

The Magic Hand by Robert R. Sherman Well, we’ve traveled many roads And camped by many streams, We’ve seen countless river canyons In the journey of our dreams. In the grandeur of the Rockies And the silence of the North, We’ve explored the mighty artistry The hand of God sets forth. For the vastness and the beauty Of a wild and untamed land Reflects the artful sculpting Of a patient, Magic Hand. And near a lonely, peaceful river Riffling over rock and sand We seek the peace and quiet Offered by a Magic Hand. And if there be a single wish We’re all allowed to make, It would be our final resting place Be near a pristine lake. Where the coolness of the evening and the stillness of the land Be guarded by the Power Of a giant, Magic Hand.

Homecoming There’s nothing at the quiet end of every busy day That gives the soul more peace than heading on the homeward way. The beauty of the landscape always says you’re getting near To doorways lit with laughter and to hearts alight with cheer.

And as you reach the threshold of that home where love abounds, You’re greeted by familiar faces, love, and welcome sounds. So then give thanks that home’s a place where someone waits for you, For in this world of pain and strife, good homes are far too few. Robert G. Black, May 1, 1984

Nancie Carlson

Get the benefit of more exercise in less time Want a shorter workout? After years of hearing from the American Heart Association and other well-regarded health organizations that we need at least 30 to 60 minutes of moderate exercise daily — preferably on the high side of that number — a recent study indicates we might be able to get away with far less. But, of course, there’s a catch to lowering the time to work out. It’s called interval training, which consists of short bursts of intense activity interspersed with recovery periods. So, you have a choice — and believe me, interval training requires effort. Many of us don’t engage in any physical activity, even though we know its importance. Most say they don’t have time to perform 30 to 60 minutes of exercise each day. Whether that’s true or a rationalization, that’s for you to figure out. Maybe what we’d really like to know is, how little can we get away with and still receive health benefits? The six-week study,

published in January, was conducted by researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Participants in the study included both sedentary people who were healthy and middle-aged to older patients who had been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. Speed, endurance High intensity interval training has long been employed by competitive athletes to increase their speed and endurance, but not traditionally encouraged, or for that matter studied, in older, cardiovascular patients. That said, in the Canadian study the subjects were given a gentler form of interval training. Participants were asked to work out on a stationary bicycle at about 90 percent of their maximum heart rate (roughly estimated by subtracting our age from 220) for one minute followed by a one minute of easy recovery. The effort and recovery are repeated 10 times for a total of 20 minutes. If you are 75 years old, approximately 90 percent of your maximum heart rate would be around 130-plus beats per minute — a doable range.

The result? Both groups experienced improvement in their health and fitness with the cardiac group experiencing significant improvement in the functioning of their blood vessels and heart. The researchers think the heart may be insulated from intensity of the intervals because the effort is so brief. Should you start a program such as this for yourself? My cautionary advice: you must see a physician before starting any exercise program if you have a heart, respiratory or any other serious medical condition. Under no circumstances should you begin a high intensity interval training program on your own if there’s any question about your health. My latest change in regimen is a combination of both distance and interval training primarily to boost my stamina which has waned as I age. It seems to take more energy these days to do the same things I’ve always done. I’m combining short bursts in my outdoor walking regimen, extending the distance and have gone back to an old Kathy Smith (remember her?) videotape

High Desert hospice llc

that includes 2-minute intervals within the 25-minute aerobic portion of a 40-minute tape. Instead of shortening my time, I’m attempting to increase endurance. Your workout depends upon a lot of factors. But if time is short and you are in good health or your doctor gives the goahead, try high intensity interval training by using machines at your local fitness center. It’s easy to speed up the treadmill, bicycle, rowing, elliptical or stair machines for a minute and then return to your regular pace. Take a quick pulse rate after your first attempts to see if you are close to 90 percent of your maximum heart rate and then go for it. It is your choice. Stay with a moderate routine of 30 to 60 minutes daily, or give high intensity interval training a try to see if it fits better in your schedule. The American Heart Association recommended guidelines of 30 to 60 minutes a day are good ones. But, if you don’t have time, 20 minutes of a harder workout might do the trick.
