Down Memory Lane

Writing is the forever 'project' I remember that some columns back I wrote there would be no more projects for me. That was after I volunteered to be an example of how to earn money for my Florida church the old fashioned way by having a cookie sale. I was swamped with cookies which Ray had to move seven times. That was when I swore off doing projects.  I doubted if you thought I would, for you have read about so many of them. Writing must be my forever project. When Over 50 accepted a writing I sent to them, we began what next month will be a 15-year relationship. I must say I like being on the front page.   My writing, humble as it might

be, keeps me tuned to life around me. It was back in 2007, I decided to put together all my Doris writings and narrate Butt each day as I was writing in a book, Where Hollyhocks Bloom.   I have a few copies around, but the press has about stopped on that project. I have put together several booklets of people’s lives in our Florida community. Writing about Vivian, a very prominent townsperson, brought the most emotional experience of all my writing. I delivered her book on her 94th birthday. That afternoon, she fell and died several weeks later.   I was told she had the open book

beside her recliner. Also, she mentioned the book on the way to the hospital. You all know hollyhocks were a continuous project all during my retirement years at the farmstead. I even set up a website and sold seed all over the United States and even sent some to England for a gentleman’s cottage.  It was sad to leave them. About the same time, Mr. McGregor’s little garden along Hogan Hill Road came into existence.  He first tended vegetables and then went strictly to flowers. Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy and Peter Cottontail moved on to another garden. Mr. McGregor, somewhat neglected, still looks about the farmstead.  I wonder if he misses us. Doris Butt is a retired teacher, and can be reached at raydoris53@aol. com.

Hospital auxiliary hosts American West picnic Many of the images you envision when thinking of the American West could be seen at the Greendale Cabin when Dearborn County Hospital hosted its annual summer picnic for the DCH Auxiliary. Volunteers came dressed in cowboy hats and boots, bandanas and bolo ties. The entire cabin was decorated with a bunkhouse theme complete with a saddle and other horse tack, lanterns, crocks, and even cast iron pots and frying pans. “The picnic is just one of several events the hospital hosts each year to show our appreciation for the Auxiliary,” stated Roger Howard, Dearborn County Hospital President/CEO. “Our volunteers are an important part of the DCH family. We are very grateful for both their hours of service and their financial contributions.” A highlight of the event was when Auxiliary President Sylvia Plashko pre-

sented Mr. Howard with an Auxiliary check for $10,000. The donation was made to assist the hospital in the purchase of a new commercial dishwasher. Including this donation, the Auxiliary has contributed approximately $1.9 million to the hospital since 1959. Auxiliary funds are primarily derived from the DCH Auxiliary Gift Shop and Snack Bar, and special projects such as the Dillard’s ministore.

Dearborn farmers receive Hoosier Homestead Awards Rep. Jud McMillin (RBrookville) congratulates the Hiltz and Probst farms for receiving the Hoosier Homestead Award at the Indiana State Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 8. Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman and Agriculture Director Joe Kelsay presented the awards. The Hoosier Homestead Award Program recognizes family farms that have been owned by the same family for 100 years or more.

Forty-six Centennial awards were given for 100 years of ownership and 29 Sesquicentennial awards recognized 150 years. The Hiltz Farm, located in Dearborn County, has been in operation since 1908. They received the Centennial Award for over 100 years of ownership. The Probst Farm has been in operation since 1855 and received the Sesquicentennial Award for over 150 years of owner-

ship. The Probst Farm is also located in Dearborn County. The program began in 1976 to acknowledge the contributions these families have made to Indiana’s agriculture industry. Over 5,000 farms have been recognized by the program since its inception. “Both the Hiltz farm and the Probst farm, are icons of Hoosier farming,” said Rep. McMillin. “These farms have built

a legacy spanning generations. Their dedication to Indiana and its agriculture deserves the highest praise.” Two award ceremonies are held each year - one at the Statehouse in February and one at the State Fair in August.

Senior Source Dear Senior Source,

Q. I am in my 60's and out of work for the first time that I can remember. While I am weighing my options of either continuing to look for full-time employment or to retire and find parttime work, I would like to volunteer in the community. Are there any organizations that can help me find volunteer opportunities? A. You have a good attitude about your current situation. Many people do not realize that time spent volunteering in the community can be a valuable asset on a resume. Volunteering can also productively fill time and keep you active. Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is an organization that helps older adults find local volunteer opportunities. (Editor's Note: See Page 6) These opportunities can include working in the local hospital, food pantry, school, or animal shelter. They also include opportunities that

OVER FIFTY utilize individual skills and interests such as sewing, crocheting, and baking. One local office for RSVP is in Lawrenceburg and serves Dearborn and Ohio Counties. They can be reached by calling 812-539-4005 or by visiting Another local RSVP office is in New Albany, Ind., that serves Jefferson County. They can be reached at 812-9481815, or visit for more information. The local United Way can also be helpful to find volunteer opportunities. The United Way helps raise funds for not-for profit organizations. Residents of Dearborn and Ohio Counties can visit to view volunteer opportunities or dial 2-1-1. The Jefferson County United Way can be reached by calling 812-2652036 or by visiting If there is a favorite charity or organization that you have donated to in the past, give their office a call to see


if they could use a hand. Individual non-profit organizations sometimes need help with basic office duties and fundraising events. LifeTime Resources is just one local organization seeking volunteers for a wide range of duties such as, friendly visitor, home maintenance, and meal delivery. Please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center, ADRC, at 812-4326200 or 800-742-5001. I hope this information has been helpful to you, and as always "May the Source be With You!"

Did you know? Lemon balm may be able to help individuals relieve stress or feelings of nervousness that stem from managing a disease. Research indicates that a tea made from lemon balm may help people sleep soundly at night and help keep them calm and focused during the day, as was published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology. In addition, a 2002 study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that four weeks of lemon balm aroma therapy reduced agitation in patients with severe dementia. Before resorting to powerful and potentially addictive sedatives, individuals may be able to alleviate their symptoms of nervousness with all-natural lemon balm. It can be purchased in liquid tincture form at many health food stores.

Over Fifty Magazine Supplement A publication of LifeTime Resources Inc., where our mission is, “Working together to provide services that help people maintain their independence.”

A Letter from the Executive Director Dear Friends, You’ve probably all heard the commercial phrase, “We all go; why not enjoy the go?”. In my opinion, that is a very clever way to discuss a personal topic. Unfortunately, I’m not nearly as clever, but I do want to discuss a personal subject, bathrooms. The bathroom may be the most cruel room in a home. It is a room that we all need; unlike a den, a study, or a formal dining room, however, its small size and feature designs makes it difficult for many older Sally Beckley adults to maneuver as they age. The bathroom can Executive Director become one of the most dangerous rooms in the house. What many people do not realize is that the inability to utilize the features of the bathroom can be a direct threat to independence. If a person has lost their toileting abilities, it can lead to infections that can leave one

hospitalized. If someone is unable to lift their foot high enough to clear the tub wall, that person can trip and fall into the tub causing life-threatening injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 81 percent of injuries in the bathroom are caused by falls. An unaccommodating bathroom should not be the reason a person has to leave their home. Modifications, either minor or major, can help someone stay in their home longer and make the bathroom a safer place. Financial assistance may be available for those needing more elaborate modifications. Please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center at 812432-6200 for more information regarding home modifications, and read the article on page 9 about common Bathroom Modifications.

Sincerely, Sally

The Importance of Getting Some ZZzzz’s Do you get enough sleep every night? If you don't then you may have a higher risk of having a stroke, even if you don't have other risk factors such as obesity or sleep apnea, according to a recent study from the University of Alabama Birmingham. Everyone seems to be in a hurry these days. We have so many tasks to do and only 24 hours a day to do them. Many people think sleep time is expendable, so they cut back on it to complete everything. Even though adults should be getting between seven and eight hours of sleep, most of us only get five to six hours, which can cause problems. Cutting back on sleep is not the only reason people do not get enough of it. Stress and anxiety with work or money issues can make you lose sleep. Sometimes a medication can inhibit sleep or cause insomnia, leaving people groggy. Recently, an article emerged implicating statins, or cholesterol-lowering drugs, as a culprit in sleepiness. This is alarming because so many people use them. According to, drowsiness and insomnia are both potential side effects of statins. If you use a statin and are sleepy, talk to your doctor about different treatments to reduce your cholesterol, such as diet

and exercise. In addition to strokes, lack of sleep: • Can cause accidents…vehicular or otherwise. • Can cause your I.Q. to drop. • Can cause life-threatening illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes. • Reduces sex drive. • Can lead to depression. • Can age your skin. • Makes you forgetful. • May inhibit your attempts to shed a few pounds. • Doubles the risk of death in all causes. • Impairs judgment. If you want to increase your sleep inventory and reduce the risks that are listed above, follow these steps from the Mayo Clinic: • Stick to a regular sleep schedule, don't sleep in on the weekends. • Pay attention to the amount of caffeine in food and drink, and monitor what times of day you consume caffeine. • Create a bed time ritual that excludes televisions and electronic devices such as smartphones. • Make your room and bed as comfortable as

possible. Limit daytime naps to 10-30 minutes. Get some physical activity in your daily routine. Manage your stress levels throughout the day. Sleep is so important to one's well-being. Be sure to get enough of it in order to live a full and active life. It may help ward off illness and maintain independence in the long run. • • •

Grandparents’ Rights Grandparents should play an important role in a child's life. All too often, though, their right to be a part of their grandchildren's lives get lost in the shuffle. There are plenty of reasons for this: divorce, death, birth out of wedlock, and adoption. So what is a grandparent to do if they want to be part of their grandchild's life but circumstances make it difficult? Indiana state law recognizes that grandparents having access to their grandchildren is generally beneficial for both parties. However, there are certain restrictions, rules and procedures that must be followed to ensure visitation rights. Grandparents in Indiana have the right to seek visitation if the child's parent has died. For example, if the child's mother dies and the father doesn't allow visitation, then the maternal

grandparents may file a petition for visitation rights. They can also seek visitation if the child's parent's have gotten a divorce in the state of Indiana. Paternal grandparents who have grandchildren born out of wedlock may seek visitation, but only if paternity has been established. Those seeking visitation rights with their grandchildren must prove that a relationship is in the best interest of the child. In order to do this a grandparent needs to prove that they have had previous meaningful contact with their grandchild. A child may be interviewed in private by a representative of the court to determine if visitation rights should be granted. The interview may be recorded and used for future appeals. If a child is placed for adoption, it nullifies grandparent's rights for visitation, but there are

certain exceptions. If a child is adopted by a stepparent or by another blood relative, such as an aunt or uncle, then a grandparent can still petition for visitation rights.

Bathroom Modifications Let's face it, most household bathrooms are not designed for aging older adults. Bathtubs are hard to get in and out of for those with mobility issues and the toilets are too low for people with back, leg and knee issues. Don't forget the area rugs and the slippery tile on the floor. With all of these hazards, its no wonder that bathrooms are often considered the most dangerous room in the home. Many builders don't consider how a person will age while living in the home. A standard design may cut their costs, and it is up to the owner to make the changes that they need to survive in their home. Also, it is not always apparent what a person will need until it is too late. Fortunately, companies are starting to realize that people will have changing needs as they age and are designing products and services to accommodate. Functional assistive devices and home modifications are often the difference between remaining at home and living in a nursing facility. Modifications and assistive devices don't have to be elaborate or expensive. One common and simple home bathroom modification is installing grab bars any where that a person may need help getting to their feet. This may be near the toilet or in the shower or tub. Grab bars are either fastened with screws or with heavy duty adhesive to the surface. Other simple modifications can be stationary or removable depending on need. A raised toilet seat or a toilet stand can be placed on top of or around the existing commode. Both of these devices can help those with arthritis in the back or legs gain stability while using the toilet. A walk-in shower is another common

modification. Many older adults can no longer lift their legs high enough to step into a tub. A tub to shower conversion can help alleviate some of the hazard. Another option is to cut a portion of the tub wall out to form a walk-in shower. For those who use a wheel chair, a roll in shower is an option. These are just a few of the numerous options now available. Many of these bathroom modifications are covered by Medicare or Medicaid. While most people in our area may not think about it, a bidet or bidet toilet seat can be a real lifesaver. According to the New Old Age Blog on, bidets are becoming more popular in other parts of the country. A bidet toilet can clean private areas of the body without the assistance of an aid. It has been credited for reducing the amount of urinary tract infections, which is a leading cause of hospitalization for older adults. Bidet toilets aren't cheap, though. Most cost between $1,000 -$2,000. However there are some attachments that can be placed on an existing toilet for considerably less. Despite some possible health benefits, these bidet toilets and modification items are not covered by Medicare or Medicaid. However, if more people find a need to use them in the future, maybe that policy will change. While our homes may not have been built to age as we age, there are many options that can help us remain independent. If you think you may need a modification to your home, whether it is a bathroom modification or a ramp outside your home, give LifeTime Resources a call at 812-4326200. After an assessment, you may qualify for some financial assistance to help make these changes possible.

Once only found in upscale hotels in the U.S. and Europe, the bidet or bidet toilet may be finding a niche in mainstream homes of older adults promoting both good hygiene and safety. Photo:;;;

All of these items can help make activities of daily living safer and more manageable for older adults and those with disabilities.

Richard Adams: New Advisory Council Member Richard Adams of Switzerland County thinks that communication barriers on who provides assistance and how to receive assistance is an important issue facing older adults and those with disabilities these days. It is one issue that he hopes to address while serving on the Advisory Council for LifeTime Resources. Adams is one of the newest members of the Advisory Council, joining this past May. He also feels lack of family, caregivers, and equipment to maintain lifestyle is an issue facing older adults today. "We need to provide information, visitation and follow-ups to help solve these issues," says Adams, a retired U.S. Air Force member.

The Switzerland County resident knows a bit about helping people in need. As the Veterans Service Officer for Switzerland County, he directs local veterans to where they can find assistance within the Veteran's Administration. The position was one of the reasons why he was recommended to LifeTime by a former Advisory Council Member. Adams hopes as an Advisory Council Member that he will gain valuable information and assistance that he will be able to distribute to the community. Mr. Adams lives in Florence with his wife, Leona. He enjoys golf, water aerobics, reading, and being part of the Veterans Honor Guard. Along with his time in the Air Force, he has served as a county sheriff and a nursing home administrator.

Douglas Rump: New Advisory Council Member Doug Rump is very active in his community. The Versailles resident has been involved with 4-H, YES Home, Dearborn County Park Board, Ripley County Extension office, and St. Paul Lutheran Church. His newest venture is with the Advisory Council at LifeTime Resources.

Rump believes that housing, transportation, and medical needs are the most important issues facing older adults and those with disabilities. He thinks that LifeTime should address these issues by "assisting all individuals in receiving services that are available to make their

Continued from Page 8 Grandparents Any time spent with a grandchild should be cherished. Grandparents can often serve as a buffer for children and their parents. Sometimes a child may feel more comfortable confiding in a grandparent than a parent. If a child does not have access to their grandparents, they may miss out on some of the greatest friendships a person can have in life.

If you are a grandparent seeking information about grandparents’ rights or even resources regarding grandparents being caregivers for their grandchildren, please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) at LifeTime Resources at 812-432-6200.;

former employee July 4, 2012. Katie was the Director of the Moores Hill Senior Nutrition Activity Center (SNAC) for 11 years. She retired from the SNAC in December 2011.

Did you know? Researchers have predicted that global cancer rates could increase by as much as 75 percent by 2030. Researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the American Cancer Society have estimated that the number of people affected by cancer in some of the world's poorest countries could grow by as much as 90 percent. That estimation is based largely on the growing rate of current health initiatives in third world countries to save people from diseases such as malaria and AIDS. Those people are now expected to live longer, increasing their risk of developing cancer, a disease for which aging is considered a risk factor. Rising smoking rates in countries like China also influenced the projections by researchers, though experts not affiliated with the study noted that making certain healthy lifestyle choices, including exercising, adhering to a healthy diet and choosing not to smoke, could reduce cancer rates in the future. The study, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, estimated that there will be more than 22 million new cases of cancer by 2030. By comparison, 2008 saw fewer than 13 million new cancer diagnoses.

Vegetable Paella

■3 ■ tablespoons olive oil ■1 ■ onion, diced ■1 ■ large fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces ■4 ■ cloves garlic, chopped ■2 ■ cups short- or medium-grain white rice ■2 ■ cups warm water ■11/2 ■ cups dry white wine ■1/2 ■ teaspoon paprika ■3/4 ■ teaspoon saffron threads or

ground turmeric ■1 ■ teaspoon salt ■1 ■ 14-ounce can artichoke hearts in water, drained ■3/4 ■ cup sliced drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes ■8 ■ ounces thin asparagus or green beans, trimmed and halved ■1/3 ■ cup green olives ■3 ■ tablespoons chopped Italian flatleaf parsley

Serves 6 to 8 1. Place paella pan over medium heat and let pan get hot. Add oil and tip pan to coat. Add onion and fennel and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onions and fennel are lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in rice, lightly coating all grains with oil. Stir in water, paprika, wine, salt, saffron, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. Gently shake pan to distribute rice evenly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. 2. Remove pan from heat and scatter asparagus and green olives over rice.

Cover pan and bake in preheated oven until rice is tender with a slightly crusted bottom, about 30 minutes. 3. Scatter chopped parsley over top and serve hot. Chef's tip: When garlic is browned too quickly, it will become bitter. If sauteing with other vegetables, add garlic toward the end of the browning process. To ensure time with your guests, make the paella up to 1 day in advance. Refrigerate cooled paella in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Spread in paella pan, cover and reheat in a 350 F oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

Rehab is work. But it can also be fun.

Did you know?

Recent surveys show there are fewer young people and more senior citizens behind the wheel in the United States. According to the National Household Travel Survey, members of Generation Y, who are between the ages of 16 to 34, are driving less. From 2001 to 2009, the average annual number of vehicle miles traveled by Gen-Y-ers dropped by 23 percent. Some find the process to be a hassle, others are frightened by the prospect of controlling a vehicle, and others are merely taking a green approach to transportation, choosing bicycles or public transportation. There is also the high cost of owning and fueling-up a vehicle today. On the flip side, researchers at the University of Michigan have found that people age 70 and older make up the largest group of drivers on the road -- even higher than those in their 40s and 50s.

The Dearborn-Ohio County Child Advocate program is looking for volunteers to be the “Voice of A Child”. All neglected or abused children deserves a voice - someone to speak up for their best interest.
