Howseniorscanstayactiveandhealthyintheheat (NC) Extreme heat is a reality in many parts of the country throughout the summer. For everyone, but especially older adults, extreme heat can pose serious health risks if you?re not careful. At the same time, it?s vital for seniors to stay active to remain healthy as they age. Here are a few tips to help you exercise safely when temperatures rise. Know your risks Older adults may face additional factors that could increase risk during extreme heat, such as chronic conditions, social isolation or medications that interfere with the body?s cooling mechanisms. If you take medication, consult with your family doctor or pharmacist about your level of risk. Plan ahead Know what the temperature is before you start exercising. That way you can modify your physical activity accordingly, whether it?s moving your walk to a shaded area or an air- conditioned building or rescheduling to a cooler part of the day. Stay connected Try exercising with others and have someone pay special attention to how

you?re doing. Arrange for regular check- ins by family, friends and neighbours during very hot days in case you need assistance. Just remember to follow the public health advisories that are in place in your area. Drink more water By the time you feel thirsty, you?re already dehydrated. So, drink plenty of water before, during and after being physically active. Increase your comfort by splashing yourself with cold water. Be realistic and recover Try not to expect the usual performance from yourself during extreme heat, and allow your body to recover after heat exposure. Spend a few hours in a cooler shaded area or somewhere that?s air conditioned, such as your home, a shopping mall or public building. Look for symptoms Any time it?s hot out, watch for symptoms of heat illness. These include dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting, headache, or rapid breathing and heartbeat. If you have any of these symptoms during extreme heat, move to a cool place and drink water right away. Find more information at

Topoutdoor living trends

(NC) With more time being spent at home, people are reimagining how to maximize the comfort and function of their exterior spaces. In fact, outdoor living design has never been more inventive. Here are the top trends expected to shape backyards across the country this summer: Outdoor offices As working and learning from home continue, contractors report increased interest in outdoor spaces that can accommodate professionals and students. Requests for stylish sheds, cottages and pergolas are on the rise. A relatively easy addition, a pergola creates the look and feel of an outdoor room while adding a distinct architectural element. Of course, its main purpose is providing shade ? essential for enhancing visibility of laptops and devices, as well as offering relief on hot days. Take the plunge Between travel restrictions and closings of community pools, homeowners are taking the plunge and installing swimming pools, hot tubs and ponds in their own backyards. To give these additions a finished look, surround them with high- performance composite decking such as Trex. Unlike wood, this low- maintenance alternative won?t rot, warp, stain or fade and never needs sanding, staining or sealing. Luxury staycation Fueled by the drastic decline in travel, interest in replicating the sophisticated style and comforts of luxury hotels and resorts has grown. From plush towels and plumped pillows to outdoor accents like fire tables, water features and industrial- style railing, commercially inspired designs can give any outdoor space the essence of an extravagant staycation. Give it a try with DIY The DIY category has exploded, with more people rolling up their sleeves and tackling even the most challenging home improvements. Ambitious DIYers are turning to YouTube and sites like decks.com for inspiration, motivation and how- to tips, saving time and money in the process and earning some serious bragging rights. One popular and doable DIY project is building or resurfacing a deck with hassle- free composite material. In most cases, it can be completed over the course of a weekend with just a little know- how and the help of some friends. Find more outdoor living inspiration at trex.com.

ST.RAPHAEl's R U I N S What kids say...

I thought it was a pretty cool place, but also pretty scary at the same time. The bell was spooky because it was broken up and dusty.

" " -Ezekiel, age 10

I thought it was great how they kept the ruins so people can go see. The bell is really old and broken and there are holes in the walls showing how old it is. -Trinity, age 12
