Lynn Says

The world population is aging faster than we can care for the aged

By Lynn L. Martin (This is a release from the World Health Organization. It talks about many nations around the world, but the issue is affecting the USA also.) The world is aging so fast that most countries are not prepared to support their swelling numbers of elderly people, according to a global study going out Tuesday by the United Nations and an elder rights group. The report ranks the social and economic well-being of elders in 91 countries, with Sweden coming out on top and Afghanistan at the bottom. It reflects what advocates for the old have been warning, with increasing urgency, for years: Nations are simply not working quickly enough to cope with a population graying faster than ever before. By the year 2050, for the first time in history, seniors over the age of 60 will outnumber children under the age of 15. Truong Tien Thao, who runs a small tea shop on the sidewalk near his home in Hanoi, Vietnam, is 65 and acutely aware that he, like millions of others, is plunging into old age without a safety

net. He wishes he could retire, but he and his 61-year-old wife depend on the $50 a month they earn from the tea shop. And so every day, Thao rises early to open the stall at 6 a.m. and works until 2 p.m., when his wife takes over until closing. “People at my age should have a rest, but I still have to work to make our ends meet,” he says, while waiting for customers at the shop, which sells green tea, cigarettes and chewing gum. “My wife and I have no pension, no health insurance. I’m scared of thinking of being sick – I don’t know how I can pay for the medical care.” Thao’s story reflects a key point in the report, which was released early to The Associated Press: Aging is an issue across the world. Perhaps surprisingly, the report shows that the fastest aging countries are developing ones, such as Jordan, Laos, Mongolia, Nicaragua and Vietnam, where the number of older people will more than triple by 2050. All ranked in the bottom half of the index. “Unless you measure something, it doesn’t really exist in the minds of decision-makers,” said John Beard, director of aging and life course for the World Health Organization. “One of the challenges for population aging is that we don’t even collect the data, let alone

start to analyze it. For example, we’ve been talking about how people are living longer, but I can’t tell you people are living longer and sicker, or longer in good health.” The report fits into an increasingly complex picture of aging and what it means to the world. On the one hand, the fact that people are living longer is a testament to advances in health care and nutrition, and advocates emphasize that the elderly should be seen not as a burden but as a resource. On the other, many countries still lack a basic social protection floor that provides income, health care and housing for their senior citizens. Afghanistan, for example, offers no pension to those not in the government. Life expectancy is 59 years for men and 61 for women, compared to a global average of 68 for men and 72 for women, according to U.N. data. 80-year-old Marianne Blomberg works out at a gym in Stockholm. “There’s no evidence that an aging population is a population that is economically damaged,” she says. Prosperity in itself does not guarantee protection for the old. The world’s rising economic powers – the so-called BRICS nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – rank lower in the index than some poorer countries such as Uruguay and Panama. However, the report found, wealthy nations are in general better prepared for aging than poorer ones. Sweden, where the pension system is now 100 years old, makes the top of the list because of its social support, education and health coverage, followed by Norway, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada. The United States comes in eighth. Sweden’s health system earns praise from Marianne Blomberg, an 80-yearold Stockholm resident. “The health care system, for me, has worked extraordinarily well,” she says. “I suffer from atrial fibrillation and from the minute I call emergency until I am discharged, it is absolutely amazing. I can’t complain about anything – even the food is good.”

21, at the First United Methodist Church in Alva with the Rev. Terry Martindale officiating. Burial followed at Alva Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Marshall Funeral Home. The casket will be open at the funeral home until 9 a.m. Saturday and will remain closed at the church. Betty Jo Gallon Pangburn was born on Jan. 16, 1938, in Alva to Autmer A. and Pearl (Wright) Gallon. She entered into eternal life on Sept. 17, 2013 after, a two-year battle with cancer. She was raised by her parents on a farm north of Alva with her two sisters. The girls enjoyed their farm life and learned to cook and sew from their mother. The sisters had so much fun living in the upstairs of the farmhome and they played lots of games, had tea parties and played dress up. Betty Jo has been a life-long resident of Alva. After graduating from Alva High School in 1956, Betty Jo received her bachelors and masters degrees in education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. On Aug. 29, 1958, she was united in marriage to Dale Herman Ritter. Two children were born to this marriage. On May 21, 1982, she was married to Donald Lee Bellah in Alva. Together they enjoyed family gatherings and always had a large garden that they loved sharing with family and friends. He preceded her in death on Dec. 2, 2002. Betty Jo taught fourth grade in Cherokee for three years and then put her career on hold to be at home with her children. In 1972 she was hired at Alva High School and held that position for twenty-three years, teaching many students how to cook, sew, decorate cakes and survive in the home. Her greatest teaching reward was when students came years later and said the life skills they learned from her truly helped them. Many even called for cooking help years beyond school. She also served as chapter advisor of the Future Homemakers of America. On Nov. 21, 2008, she married Samuel Wesley Pangburn in Alva. After celebrating their 50th class reunion these

two lifelong friends and classmates were married. They enjoyed traveling to Europe, Hawaii and the east and west coasts visiting friends and families. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church, United Methodist Women, We Are One Sunday school group and Mary Martha Circle. In 1964 Betty Jo was one of the founding members of PEO Chapter ET and was a 56year member of the Delta Zeta. She was also a member of 20th Century, Delta Kappa Gamma, Nescatunga Arts and Humanities Council, Holly Club, Household Executive Extension Club, Friends of the Alva Library and Republican Women. She walked almost every morning with the Walkie Talkies and played in a bridge group. She always enjoyed flowers in her garden. As a grandmother she tried to go to all the sports activities, piano and dance recitals, school programs and church events. She loved sewing dresses for her young daughter and later her granddaughters and their dolls. She also created beautiful handwork. Her dining room table was filled with family during holidays. Birthdays were celebrated with a cake and never-fail hot rolls. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Nadine Marie Sternberger and two infant brothers. Betty Jo is survived by her husband Sam of Alva; son Douglas Dale Ritter and his wife Westline of Alva and daughter Dana Kay Roark and her husband Dan of Kiowa, Kan.; grandchildren Rachel Nicole, Grant Douglas and Garrett Larson Ritter of Alva and Hailey Jo Roark of New York City, and Courtney Jean Roark of Kiowa; and sister Barbara Ann Bouziden of Alva. Also surviving are step-daughters Shelly Taylor and her friend Al Anderson of Pottsboro, Texas, and Andrea Koeber of Sacremento, Calif.; step-son Russell Pangburn and his wife Missy of Columbia, Md.; step-daughter Peggy Rathmell and her husband John of Houston, Texas; step-son Mark Bellah; twelve step grandchildren; two step great grandchildren; other relatives and many friends.

Alva man faces drug charge By Marione Martin An Alva man was stopped in Alfalfa County for not having visible lighting on his trailer. He was later charged with drug possession. According to court records, on Sept. 23 Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell noticed an orange Ford pickup pulling a trailer with another pickup on the trailer that was parked at a residence in Carmen. Trekell continued on patrol and later saw the vehicle leaving town with no lights on the trailer. The lights on the pickup pulling the trailer were not visible, and there was no reflective material on the trailer. Trekell activated his emergency lights and caught up with the vehicle about a mile south of Carmen on SH 45. The driver was identified as Chad William Johnson, 36, of Alva. Trekell asked for his driver’s license and insurance and asked him to have a seat in his patrol vehicle. While waiting for dispatch to return information on the driver’s license, Trekell looked up Johnson’s criminal history and saw he had previous CDS charges in Woods County in 2011. Johnson told Trekell he was traveling from Arkansas where he and his brother had been visiting his mother, and he was headed to Alva. Johnson seemed not to remember who he had been visiting in Carmen until Trekell asked him specifically. He then said he stopped at the home of a co-worker to get a Dr. Pepper. Trekell asked Johnson if there was anything in his vehicle a narcotics detection K-9 would alert on, and he sat silently. Trekell asked if there was anything illegal in his vehicle, and he said there was a pipe used to smoke marijuana in the armrest compartment in the center of the front seat. Trekell said he was going to retrieve the pipe and

asked if he would find anything else in the vehicle. Johnson said there was some marijuana with the pipe and they were in the compartment above the rear view mirror. Trekell found a small brass-colored pipe with the odor of marijuana as well as a lighter and a small container with a green leafy substance that later field tested positive for marijuana. He also found a small screen similar to one placed

inside a marijuana smoking device and a device commonly called a “one hitter” in a compartment on the driver’s side door. He also found two sockets taped together containing a burnt residue located in the glove compartment. Johnson was placed under arrest and taken to the Alfalfa County Jail. On Sept. 24 he was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, a misdemeanor.

Friends of the KHD Hospital and Manor Foundation organized the event, which included a steak dinner, silent auction and live auction. Hospital Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Janell Goodno said Jeans and Gems raised $32,093. The money will help in multiple ways, such as helping purchase equipment for Kiowa’s new hospital under construction on the south end of town. Hospital and foundation Public Relations Director Brenna May, who was a key organizer, said how successful the event was and added, “Thank you to everybody who contributed and supported the foundation.” The biggest ticket auction item was a Browning Citori 12-gauge shotgun donated by MW Builders, which is constructing the hospital. The gun sold for $5,100.

Oklahoma optometric physicians promote complimentary Infantsee vision examinations

Infantsee is a public health program designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness to improve a child’s quality of

life. Intfantsee week, Oct. 21-25, will bring heightened awareness of the program to the public and help motivate parents to take advantage of the free exams to better ensure eye wellness in infants. An Infantsee assessment is recommended between six and 12 months of age and determines if an infant is at risk for eye or vision disorders. This is a critical service Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians and members are proud to offer at no cost year-round to Oklahomans all over the state. Clinical experience and research shows that at six months the average child has reached

a number of critical developmental milestones, making this the appropriate age for the first eye and vision examination. Successful treatment for certain ocular conditions detected in infants is more likely with early intervention, avoiding lifelong effects on vision. Undetected vision problems can affect every stage of a child’s development and cause major hardships as children progress to school years. Local optometry physicians participating in this program are: Alva: Dr. Troy L. Smith and Dr. Trina Piper-Hughbanks Cherokee: Dr. Carl Wade Newton. Fairview: Dr. Max L. Carlisle

Odell, Lori Schrock, Jim Parker, Robert Stark and Dan Lukins. Representing SCTelcom, Steve Allen spoke as a salesperson and consultant. He presented a variety of networking options for the new facility, including the phone system and both wired and wireless infrastructure. Allen said the information technology support contract the hospital has with SCTelcom is for 42 hours and the hospital exceeds it – on track to be over some $19,000. Allen proposed a 75-hour contract at a rate of $18,000/ year. Allen and the board spoke at length about SCTelcom’s options, including an overhead paging system. Board members want to insure it is a speaker-only system. Details about a security camera system were discussed at length as were numerous nursing items, including a nurse call system, beds, surgical lighting, scrub sinks and Omnicell. Following an executive session that lasted from 9:46 p.m. to 11:37 p.m., the board approved capital requests totaling about $135,000, according to Odell. Some of those are DRE surgical lights not to exceed $34,000 and a nurse call system from Westrock not to exceed $30,000, overbed tables and video surveillance. Odell abstained from the votes involving SCTelcom as he is employed with that telecommunications company. SCTelcom items approved include a two-year contract, wired and

wireless infrastructure, phone system and security system. The overhead paging system wiring is approved only pending further discussion. The board also approved the hospital bad debt and monthly risk management/quality assurance report. CEO Report by Odell Includes Personnel Changes In the absence of a hospital chief executive officer (CEO) since the departure of Vandeveer earlier in September, Board President Odell presented the CEO report. Odell said the board is actively searching for “the right person to advance health care in our communities.” The board considers two candidates to further interview and screen, he said. When asked by the Newsgram about the departure of former manor Director of Nursing Nicole Tronsgard and assistant Jan Smith, Odell said, “We (the board) felt as though it was time to make a change at the leadership position at the manor. Beyond that, it is our policy not to discuss personnel issues.” Carla Dunigan is the interim manor administrator. Melissa Stroh, a physician assistant who worked at the hospital/clinic previously, has reportedly passed all her required tests, and is now working full-time at the clinic/hospital. Odell said, “We have started to have frequent managers meetings. The meetings are designed to identify issues, discuss potential solutions, and are intended to elevate cooperation and communication between departments and facilities. In addition, managers have been asked to create timelines, inventories, etc., needed to move into the new building.” April is the target date for completion and opening of the new hospital. Hospital and Manor Financials and Statistics Hospital CFO Goodno presented August financials and statistics for the hospital. The hospital’s finances ended in the red by $157,214. Goodno explained the loss. She said the hospital received $733,000 in Medicare reimbursement and later discovered in August that the hospital had been overpaid by $124,000. So the hospital had total contractual adjustments of a negative $77,306. Goodno said gross patient revenue was also down in August at the hospital with only 31 days of acute and swingbed care. Outpatient visits were 429, which is steady. Total clinic visits were 340. Professional fees increased due to summer vacations. The hospital had a loss from operations of $235,338. The addition of $78,124 mainly tax money curbed the loss to $157,214. Accounts receivable at the hospital totalled $794,491. Less allowances of $434,000, the total net patient accounts receivable was $360,491. Total cash on hand for both the manor and hospital at the end of August was $909,903. The manor resident census in August was 22. The manor had positive contractual adjustments (from Medicaid) of $27,504. This resulted in the manor showing a net from operations of $3,882. The addition of $5,031 mainly tax money made the manor’s monthly figures $8,913 in the black.

Named Outstanding Site Manager of the Year for Western Property Management.

Newsgram Results

“When I started my job 18 months ago as site manager of the Chaparral Village Apartments in Cherokee, only ten of the 24 units had tenants. For the first year, there was very little advertising for the property and most of the empty units remained empty. Then we starting running a regular weekly ad in the Newsgram and I noticed a difference in the amount of activity in my office. Our occupancy is up to twenty-one filled units and there are several people on a waiting list. I believe the Newsgram was a great help in filling our empty units because it covers such a wide area.”
