Be cool! Helping seniors to beat the heat By Donna Barker

PRINCETON — With high temperatures and heat indexes expected to be near 100 degrees for the next several days, the Bureau County Senior Center is opening its doors as a cooling site and is offering fans for senior citizens who need them. As an additional outreach, the senior center has also started a noon time meal program. On Tuesday, center Director Denise Ihrig said the center is serving once again as a cooling center for people who want to get out of the heat. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. People can just come in and sit in an easy chair and relax or they can join others in some an activity, like bingo, cards, watching a movie or just visiting with people. Also as in previous years, the senior center does have a limited number of fans available for senior citizens ages 69 years or older, Ihrig said. When the seniors are finished with the fans, they may return them to the center or they may keep them if needed. For the first time, the Bureau County Senior Center has become a congregate meal site for all of Bureau County, Ihrig added. Through a joint effort, the Voluntary Action Center, Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging, and the senior center have started a trial program for July and August to provide a noon meal for senior citizens ages 60 and older, as well as others. Meals will be served at noon Monday through Friday. There is a $3 suggested donation for seniors having the noon meal, but no senior will be denied service if they are unable or unwilling to provide a donation toward the cost of a meal. Non-senior citizens can also eat with the seniors for a $5 cost. However, there are no carry outs or home deliveries made.

Sewer line solutions Putting some $$$ down the drain By Donna Barker

PRINCETON — The Princeton City Council continues to address sanitary sewer issues facing the city and what can be done, and when, to correct those issues. At this week’s council meeting, Princeton City Manager Jeff Clawson said the Farnsworth Group expects to have its drainage

study report ready for the council’s Aug. 19 meeting. The council had hired the engineering firm in May to evaluate the city’s sanitary and storm sewer issues, as well as the flooding issues in the Dover Road/Euclid Avenue area and the Greencroft/Metro Center area. Commissioner Joel Quiram said he’s glad the city is moving forward with the study, but thought it should be expanded to other areas of town like South Church Street, which he

said is in terrible condition. Princeton has had nine sanitary sewer collapses since the first of the year, with seven of those collapses happening since the April heavy rains and flooding, he said. Quiram recommended the city start scoping all the sanitary sewers to identify and categorize them from worst to best and then put dollar amounts on fixing the worst problems first.

A tisket, a tasket ... a Girl Scout basket Mattie Michlig works on a basket project during Girl Scout Troop 4011’s day camp, held this week at Alexander Park in Princeton. Leader Jill Carrington said 47 girls are registered in addition to the 10 girls from the troop who are helping. All profits from this camp go toward the troop’s fund for their June 2014 trip to Savannah, Ga. Scouts are doing crafts, playing games and swimming for 3 days.

PRINCETON — The Princeton Park District will go ahead with a paving project at the Bureau County Metro Center which will require the Metro Center to be closed for two or three days in late August. At Monday’s meeting of the Princeton Park Board, Superintendent of Parks Keith Scherer said two bids were received for the parking lot project, which includes the removal and paving of the center island that designates parking spaces for patrons. The project also includes the resurfacing of a dumpster collection site on the east side of the building. The park board awarded the Phase 1 project to Advanced Asphalt with a low bid of $43,602. According to Elaine Russell, executive director, the park board hopes to have the project finished sometime during the last two weeks of August, as stated in the bid specifications. As soon as the dates are determined, the information will be posted at the Metro Center and also announced through area media. Bureau County Highway Engineer John Gross will oversee the project, she said. Phase 2 of the parking lot project includes the resurfacing of the remainder of the Metro Center parking lot and will come from the 2014-15 fiscal year budget. Bids for Phase 2 will not go out until this time next year. In other business at Monday’s meeting, Russell said the Metro Center is nearing the completion of a three-year lighting upgrade project. The entire lower level and main floor of the Metro Center, along with all outside and parking lot lighting, has been changed to save on utility bills. To fund the lighting upgrade, the park board budgeted about $12,000 a year toward the three-year project, plus the park district received $22,984 in grants for the project. Also at Monday’s meeting, the board accepted with regret the resignation of aquatics coordinator/interim recreation coordinator Beth Coleman, effective in two weeks.

Heat From Page 1 So far this month, Ihrig said about 15-20 seniors have taken advantage of the noon time meal program. The important thing to know is that reservations must be made by 10 a.m. the day before by calling the senior center at 815-879-3981 or by stopping at the center at 16 W. Marion St., Princeton. People may

also stop by the center to see a menu for the next day. With the high temperatures and heat indexes to last for several days, Ihrig said it’s important for families and neighbors to check on senior citizens on a daily basis to make sure they are keeping as cool as possible and that they are staying hydrated. Comment on this story at

Summer suggestions • Take advantage of local cooling centers, such as public libraries, community facilities and other public buildings. In addition to the Bureau County Senior Center in Princeton, people may also go to the Prouty Community Center, 435 S. Main St. between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. • Slow down. Strenuous activities should be reduced, eliminated or rescheduled to the coolest time of the day. Individuals at risk should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors. • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. • Eat small meals and eat more often. Put less fuel on your inner fires. Foods (like proteins) that increase metabolic heat production also increase water loss. • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, lightcolored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays. • Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat. Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors. • Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. • Know those in your neighborhood who are elderly, young, sick or overweight. They are more likely to become victims of excessive heat and may need help. • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.

Council From Page 1 “Our sanitary sewer is this city’s far and away No. 1 challenge moving forward, especially for future growth,” Quiram said. Mayor Keith Cain agreed that more needs to be done with the city’s sanitary sewer system, but he said every council has tried to do some upgrades for the past 40 years — from sewer lines, to the new storage lagoon, to updating the wastewater treatment plant. Part of the problem has been state legislators, in the past, did not want to give money for underground services, but rather for projects that could be seen by the voters like street work, Cain said. That had nothing to do with previous councils’ efforts, he said.

Park District From Page 1 In her resignation letter, Coleman said the decision to leave was not an easy one for her to make.

As the city has grown, the sanitary sewer systems lines in those areas are new, but they are hooked to the old system which goes to the wastewater treatment plant, Cain said, adding some of the old systems just can’t handle what’s being dumped into them. He also said there can be some runoff and drainage concerns from neighboring farm fields. In his comments, Commissioner Bob Warren said he’s been on the council since 1999, and the city has spent $100,000 each year on its sewer collection system

and plant, which amounts to nearly $1.5 million. The city has spent a ton of money on the system, but he agrees that’s not enough. Commissioner Ray Mabry said the budget for the street and sanitation department is very lean with only $100,000 to $110,000 put back into the sanitary sewer system each year. That money doesn’t go very far, he said. The council has to find some way to come up with more dollars to go toward the problem and to see what work could be done in-house, Mabry

said, adding as the council works on next year’s budget, it will have to do some soul-searching to come up with more money. Clawson said the city is not waiting for the Farnsworth Group study to make a plan, but he has been putting together, on the direction of the council, ways to get more money for the needed work. He will have some proposals for the council at the July 29 public planning session for the council and department heads. In a related comment, Cain thanked the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for its assistance in helping residents get financial assistance for the expenses caused by the April rains and flooding. FEMA did a great job in addressing the situation, the mayor said. Comment on this story at

“The past six years have been rewarding, and I have grown professionally as a result of working for the Bureau County Metro Center,” Coleman said. “I have enjoyed working for you (the

board) and with all the part-time and full-time employees. Together we offered the community an array of opportunities and programs for individuals and families.” In looking for Cole-

man’s replacement, Russell said the park district will seek a recreation coordinator who would oversee all aspects of recreation. Comment on this story at

PRINCETON — An Ottawa man has entered a guilty plea in Bureau County Court to the Class 4 felony of unlawful use of a credit card. Cory M. Katrein, 23, entered his guilty plea on July 9 before Circuit Judge Marc Bernabei. Katrein was placed on two years non-reporting probation, ordered to pay fines, fees and court costs totaling $972, to pay $250 in restitution and to serve 10 weekend in the Bureau County Jail. In October 2012, a Spring Valley business owner reported to the Spring Valley Police Department that a promotional Visa Card issued to him had been used fraudulently by another. Upon investigation by the Spring Valley Police Department, it was determined Katrein was the person who had used the credit card. Katrein was indicted on Dec. 11, 2012, and arrested on Dec. 24, 2012. Katrein was previously placed on probation in 2009 for a felony cannabis offense in LaSalle County.

Starting Monday on Sunday The toughest hours of the week for me usually come on Sunday evening. There’s something about ending a weekend and gearing up for the work week that can bring out the tension in me. I can feel it when it happens. About 6 p.m. Sunday, sometimes earlier, I tend to put aside the relaxation and fun of the weekend and begin my Monday morning by turning my thoughts to the work responsibilities I will face that next morning. After all, many of us know Mondays can be too jamCOMMENTARY packed to finish in one day, and it’s good to get a head start. It’s not that I don’t like my job. I do. There’s so much to like about it ... getting to meet interesting people around the county, having the privilege of informing the public about what’s going on in their communities, and enjoying the opportunity to experience a lot of events from an inside view. And, in my opinion, my BCR colleagues are the best in the county. But even with jobs that we like, there is a pace that picks up on Monday mornings and too often on Sunday evenings, at least for me. It’s a pace that can make me feel anxious and wondering if I will get everything accomplished and on time. On Monday morning, I know there can be phone calls to be made, interviews to be completed, emails and messages to be returned, and articles to be written. And right behind me, three desks away from mine, is the clock on the wall, reminding deadline time is approaching. I think that’s just the name of the work game for many of us, whatever our jobs are. In some ways, it’s good to get that work adrenaline going, to step up the pace a bit, to focus and to strive to get everything done just right and under deadline. I just don’t think we need to do it on Sundays. A couple Sunday evenings ago, I decided life is too short to live it in advance. For me, my work week begins on Monday, not Sunday evening. So this last Sunday evening, about 6 p.m., I made myself a glass of ice tea, grabbed my Sudoku book and headed to the living room to join my husband. I still had some relaxing to do before the work week began. Several years ago, I read a quote attributed to missionary Jim Elliott who said “Wherever you are, be all there.” I’ve thought about that quote a lot through the years. If I ever wanted to carry a message with me by getting a tattoo, that would be a good choice for me. But I’m not much for pain, so I don’t think I will get a tattoo any time soon. But still, Jim Elliott’s message is with me. I’ve tried to apply that message by giving people my undivided attention when I’m talking with them and by not worrying about possible, but unlikely, things that could happen in the future to me or my loved ones. And now, I’m going to do my best to apply that message to how I live my Sunday evenings. BCR Senior Staff Writer Donna Barker can be reached at

Headlines from the past By Todd Borsch OK folks. As my research progresses through the years, so do those headlines that graced past issues of our local newspapers. These entries are all from the Bureau County Record 1909. Here we go again with some more Headlines From The Past. • March 31, 1909: Miss Nina A. Pattee, a teacher in Marseilles, is arrested for sending obscene letters. Recipients of these letters include President William Howard Taft, former President Theodore Roosevelt, Gov. Charles Deneen and a number of high-ranking Chicago officials. Pattee was interviewed by a Record reporter while in a detention hospital and declared she was not insane. Then to prove her state of mind, she went into a trance and stated the reporter must seek a woman named Mary Brand at 22 Delaware Place. After returning from her trance, Pattee revealed she had been visited by God on St. Valentine’s Day 1903. It was later disclosed Pattee had been struck in the head with a baseball bat by a student and that surgery would correct her problem. June 30, 1909: Miss Dora Leddy filed suit against the Spring Valley Board of Education. The board had dismissed

her from her duties when she refused to take back a student, Nelly Walker, whom she had sent home from school. Leddy refused to take the student back until the student apologized. Details were not given why. Leddy eventually sued the board for back pay in which she was granted. She dropped her other suits when awarded the pay in the amount of $50 per month. June 30, 1909: “Reckless Motorcyclist.” The motorcycle craze hit Princeton and produced some reckless driving. According to the report, these drivers take little care on busy streets or sidewalks in the city as they race along at speeds up to 45 miles an hour. Complaints have been received from all over Princeton. More than one case has been recorded of children’s narrow escape due to these reckless drivers. Also included in this issue of the Record is an article about riding bikes on the sidewalks. It is against city ordinance to ride a bike on the sidewalks. Youths are the biggest offenders, and it has been reported these wheelmen even conduct races on city sidewalks. Parents are asked to remind their children of the laws and consequences of their actions. The article states, “Due warning has been given, and

the next step is likely to be the appearance of an officer with warrants for the offenders.” October 6, 1909: “Don’t Know He’s Married.” Glenn Wyatt of Wyanet was not present at his own wedding. Wyatt and Miss Frances Roose were married quietly in Ottawa on Oct. 4, but the groom was not there. When interviewed, Wyatt knew nothing about the marriage. Relatives of Miss Roose living in Princeton stated they weren’t certain if the marriage had occurred but were not surprised to hear of it. Wyatt was employed by the H.W. Cate Co. in Wyanet. The article concluded by saying “perhaps he is going to keep it a secret, so please do not say anything about it.” Sept. 1, 1909: “Spring Valley Under Ban.” No more prize fights are to be conducted in Spring Valley is the message from the Illinois Governor’s Office. Bureau County Sheriff O.H. Skoglund received a communications from acting governor Oglesby stating “take the necessary means to prevent any violations of the law.” So there you have it. Another entry into Headlines From The Past. Have a great day! Princeton resident Todd Borsch can be reached at borsch3@

American Legion Baseball: Princeton 10, Henry 2

Post 125 tops Henry

By Dixie Schroeder Shaw Media Service

HENNEPIN – The Princeton Post 125 American Legion baseball team opened the Senior American Legion Tournament at Massino Field in Hennepin Tuesday with a 10-2 win over Henry. Post 125 scored two runs in the second, one in the fourth and fifth innings, and three runs in the sixth to put the game away. In the top of the first inning, the game was started off by Princeton’s

Justin Pettit’s single. Pettit was moved to third when McKinley Kruger made a sacrifice bunt but was safe on an overthrow. Jack Click then made a groundout to second base that allowed Pettit to score and Princeton hit the score column first 1-0. Clean-up hitter Jonathon Witzman drew a walk. He then stole second and Kruger scored when the Henry catcher tried to throw Witzman out at second. Witzman then stole third but that was all the scoring for the inning as Ethan

Ringle flied out to deep center, Tyler Williams walked and stole second and Sam Schlesinger grounded out to the pitcher. Ringle was the starting pitcher for Princeton. The Princeton defense was shaky at times as well with the lead-off hitter, Luke Miller reaching on an error and taking second on a groundout by Patrick Perdew. But Ringle kept it together and hurled two strikeouts in the inning and got out of trouble. Henry’s single tallies

Bureau County taking care of its own You know what the best thing about Bureau County is? It’s the people, without a doubt, and how they take care of their own. There were three events over the weekend — the Jimmy D Golf Outing, the Nancy Olds-Bohm Memorial 5K Run/Walk and the fourth annual Jay Braida Golf Outing — that ring that statement most true. Each are simply remarkable events in their own special way, honoring the memory of


dearly departed with friends and family giving back to their community. The Jimmy D has been going 31-years strong, honoring the late Jimmy DeAngelo by contributing to the cancer unit at St. Margaret’s Hospital.

The Olds-Bohm event, now in its fifth year, promises to have a continued success gaining a record 286 competitors this year. The Jay Braida means a lot to me personally, because I knew its namesake well. Jay was a good friend, a good ballplayer and a fellow Cardinal fan. This year’s event especially struck a nerve, held for Princeton native Danny Gelsomino, a father of two who was diagnosed with incurable Stage 4

Adenocarcinoma (lung cancer) with bone and brain metastasis on Feb. 6, 2012. Danny was in the first senior class I covered at PHS back in 1987 and I got to know him and his family very well. I know Danny’s family was overwhelmed by the generosity shown by everyone who contributed to the event. His mother, Jeannie, said it was great to show his friends in the Chicago area as well as his sister’s friends in Peoria, who attended the golf outing, how

great of a community their hometown is. Danny told me it meant the world to him. “The committee worked countless hours to make the day a success,” he said. “I was overwhelmed by the support from classmates, colleagues, friends and family. It really represented why Princeton is such a great place to live. My only regret was not getting to speak personally to everyone

It was a hot day to play two, but Princeton Bible Church made it worth their effort. PBC swept a Tuesday make-up doubleheader, defeating the People Church 13-3 and Methodist 14-10. Garey Driscoll hit a walk-off grand slam to evoke the 10-run rule as PBC topped TPC in the opener behind winning pitcher Gwen Holmes. PBC brought out its big bats to top UMC in the nightcap with Rob Jensen in the circle. The loss was the first for league-leader Methodist (4-1) while the Bible moved into a second-pace tie with St. Matthew’s at 4-2.

Sprint Cup Race: Samuel Deeds 400 at The Brickyard Where: Indianapolis Motor Speedway When: July 28, 1 p.m. (ET) TV: ESPN 2012 Winner: Jimmie Johnson

Vickers makes major Sprint Cup comeback with New Hampshire win To get an idea of the significance of Brian Vickers’ victory on Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, one need look no further than the official Sprint Cup Series media guide. To find information about the part-time driver of the No. 55 Toyota at Michael Waltrip Racing, one has to look in the “Other Drivers” section. While most of the top stars have their own page or two, Vickers is lumped into a catch-all category that includes drivers such as Robert Richardson, Stephen Leicht, Scott Speed, Cole Whitt and Josh Wise, none of whom regularly compete for race victories. At one point in his career, Vickers, now 29, was considered a rising NASCAR star. Driving for Hendrick Motorsports, he won the 2003 championship of the series now known as Nationwide at age 20 to become the youngest driver to win a major NASCAR championship. He moved on to the Cup series, driving for Hendrick, and got his first win at Talladega in 2006. When Toyota joined NASCAR in 2007, Vickers moved to the Red Bull team, where he struggled initially, failing to qualify for several races, before he finally won at Michigan in 2009. Then midway through 2010, he developed blood clots and missed the remainder of

the season. In 2011, his season was marred by run-ins on the track with numerous drivers, including championship contender Matt Kenseth, and by the announcement that his team was ceasing its NASCAR operations. He started the 2012 season without a ride, but was picked up for a six-race stint by Michael Waltrip Racing, which later extended it to eight races. His career comeback was underway as he posted three top-five and five top-10 finishes and led 158 laps in those eight races. For this season, he’s sharing the No. 55 with Mark Martin and Michael Waltrip and running the full Nationwide Series schedule in a Toyota fielded by Joe Gibbs Racing. He also ran three Cup races as a substitute for the injured Denny Hamlin. On Sunday at New Hampshire, Vickers and his Rodney Childers-led crew used pit strategy to overcome an early setback due to a penalty on pit road and join the lead pack late in the race. Then Vickers outdueled Tony Stewart, who wound up running out of fuel, and Kyle Busch, who finished second, down the stretch. The battle for the win including a critical final green-whitecheckered-flag run that saw Vickers power to the front after a three-wide battle for the lead.

Above, Brian Vickers celebrates his first Sprint Cup victory of the 2013 season. In his winner’s interview, Vickers said the win was special for many reasons, including his relationship with Childers, who built Vickers’ first go-kart back in the day and has been a friend and supporter since. “Rodney and I have been trying to work together for a long time,” he said. “It’s taken us 20 years to do it, and nothing could be more special for me than for both of us to have this win. “For me, personally, I think the biggest thing is just the support of family and friends, my parents, my grandmother, my fiancee and so many

believed in him through all his troubles, including the people at his race team and at his sponsor, Aaron’s. “When your back is against the wall and things are not looking so good, you find out quickly who is willing to vouch

for you or not,” he said. “I learned a lot through that experience personally and I grew a lot as a person. I’ll never forget those learning curves. All of that, coming here, sitting in Victory Lane, just makes it one of the most special events of my life.”

Round 2 opens for business Neponset woman operates consignment shop By Lyle Ganther

PRINCETON — Helping people to be able to buy affordable clothing and other items is the goal of a Neponset woman who recently opened a consignment store in Princeton. Maggie Juarez of Neponset sells men’s, women’s and children’s clothing plus household items at the store located in the former Dunbar’s building on the Bureau County Courthouse Square where the Princeton Chamber of Commerce’s operates Opportunity Knocks, designed to allow entrepreneurs to start their businesses. In the first month of Round 2 being open, Juarez has 59 consignors bring in items to sell in her shop. Fifty percent of the sale price of any item is given to the consignor. There is no fee to sign up. Juarez worked in Ali’s Closet in Kewanee for

Maggie Juarez of Neponset has opened Round 2, a consignment store selling clothing and household items in Princeton in the former Dunbar’s on the Courthouse Square. about two years before it closed and another similar store in Kewanee for a short time. After Ali’s Closet closed, Juarez looked to find a place to open her own store in that town but was unable to do so. She then found the Opportunity Knocks building in Princeton. “I always liked doing this and decided to go on my own,” she said. “People can

come in and drop off their items as long as they are wearable and clean. I like to price items affordable to get them out of here.” Juarez promises to have a decent price on all of the clothing even if it is brand new or is a brand name. People wanting to contact Juarez can call her at the store at 815-915-8238 or use her cell phone number of 309-540-8231.

She hopes to have enough business to move into a larger location because she already is running out of space for the items people have brought in to sell in the first month of the doors being open. “I would like to expand to another building,” she said. “I already have too much for this space already.” Comment on this story at

Health department releases scores The Bureau/Putnam County Health Department makes routine and unannounced visits each month to various food service establishments in Bureau and Putnam counties to inspect the operation. Health inspectors use an identical scorecard at each facility, where they check for health code

compliance in 45 areas. Each area carries a rating from one to five, with five being the most critical. Inspectors check the entire operations of the facility in 14 different categories, such as food protection, personnel and garbage and refuse disposal. Beginning with a score of 100 points, the health

inspector deducts one to five points for every violation. The final total is the facility’s inspection report score. A passing food inspection score is 65 or above. At 65, the Bureau/Putnam County ordinance allows the health department to close an establishment, but a score doesn’t have to be that

low for the department to close it. It depends on the number of critical and non-critical violations and the type of violations. Certain combinations can create a domino effect for food borne outbreaks. All inspection reports are a matter of public record and can be seen at the Bureau County Health Department in Princeton.

Tostovarsnik included on federal medical examiners’ list PERU — A new federal directory of medical examiners certified to perform physical examinations for interstate truck drivers now includes Deb Tostovarsnik, an advanced practice nurse who works in the occupational health department at Illinois Valley Community Hos-

pital. The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program. It requires all medical examiners who wish to perform physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to

be trained and certified in FMCSA physical qualification standards. Tostovarsnik successfully passed the test after recently completing training and is now included in the online directory on the national registry website. An IVCH employee since 2004, Tostovarsnik

earned her bachelor’s degree from the Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University and her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Illinois at Chicago. The IVCH occupational health department is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays.

Heat can take a toll on seniors

Family caregivers should keep a close eye on elderly during heat wave Nobody likes extreme and prolonged heat, but such conditions can be deadly for seniors. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer in the United States. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and lightning combined. “The elderly are often the most vulnerable to severe heat,” said Jeff Huber, president of Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network. “Their bodies do not adjust as well as young people to sudden changes in temperature; they are more likely to have a chronic medical condition that changes normal body responses to heat; and they are often on a prescription medicine that impairs the body’s ability to regulate its temperature or that inhibits perspiration.” If you are a senior or caring for an elderly individual, the following tips, from Home Instead Senior Care office will

help them combat the heat: • Keep a glass of water in every room to quickly and easily access fluids. Drink plenty of fluids, even if you don’t feel thirsty. • Go through the closet and remove all heavy materials, long sleeves and dark colors. Store them until fall. • Set fashion trends. If you’re in need of new clothes, check out the latest fashion magazines. Look for short sleeves, lightweight rayons or cottons, and light-colored clothing that reflect the heat. • Stay out of the sun during the hottest times of the day. Fill up your bird feeder in the morning, and water the lawn at night. Sunburn makes the job of heat dissipation that much more difficult. • Put down that broom! Save household chores, particularly washing and drying clothes and operating the dishwasher, for evenings, when the weather is cooler. • Take a nap during high heat times – between 3 and 5 p.m. in the afternoon, for instance – or find a good television program or movie to watch. • While you’re napping or enjoying a movie, keep shades down and blinds pulled. Keeping a house tightly closed is more energy efficient.

• Invite your friends over for an iced tea break. Replace coffee breaks with iced tea or lemonade breaks in an air-conditioned spot – not the patio. Staying in an air-conditioned dwelling during hot days is safer. • Go on a shopping spree. If you don’t have an air conditioner, or if yours is broken, spend the afternoon at the mall. You can shop or just enjoy cool drinks and a good book. • Put away that meat loaf recipe for the summer and track down new recipes for fruit and vegetable salads. Foods like proteins that increase metabolic heat production also increase water loss. • If increased use of a central air conditioning system causes higher utility bills that are a problem for your budget, consider purchasing a fan or small window unit that can cool down a home at a lower cost. In fact, window fans provide an effective way to exhaust the day’s hot air during the night.

Healthy living Have great looking skin at any age Avoid injuries while gardening

Eat right Avoid eating too many highly processed carbohydrates and unhealthy fats, as research suggests that these foods can promote skin aging, according to the Mayo Clinic. Your skin, which is a reflection of your wellness, benefits from a healthful diet. Opt for fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy and protein from lean meat. These choices will provide you with a variety of nutrients for your skin and overall health. Rejuvenate Does your skin bruise easily? Unfortunately, this is a common problem that can cause you to feel insecure about exposing your skin. With the use

of certain topical treatments, you can help repair and maintain elasticity that may have been lost due to medication, UV damage, genetics or simply getting older. Protect yourself Too much exposure to the sun and the ultraviolet radiation that comes with it, are contributing factors to sunburn, premature aging and even skin cancer, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Their SunWise health education program advises everyone to wear sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days, and to protect skin with hats, long sleeves and sunglasses. Don’t let time reflect itself poorly in your skin. With vigilance, you can protect your skin and improve its appearance.

Happiness could be key to good health (StatePoint) Everyone knows that proper diet, regular exercise and avoidance of bad habits like smoking are crucial to great health. But some experts say that a truly positive outlook on life can be just as powerful a factor in improving overall wellness. In fact, possessing “emotional vitality” and a sense of hopefulness, was found in a Harvard School of Public Health study to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. And many other studies have yielded results with similar implications. “An internal dialogue that is filled with negative, judgmental or selfdefeating thoughts can be a self-fulfilling prophecy,” says Sean Meshorer, a spiritual teacher and author of the new book, “The Bliss Experiment: 28 Days to Personal Transformation.” “Bringing bliss into your work, relationships, family and service, no matter what your personal struggles may be, can help you live a more focused, stressfree, fulfilling life.” Meshorer, who sustained an injury seven years ago that left him with severe, disabling and incurable chronic pain, believes your circumstances in life don’t need to define your happiness. In his new book, he offers readers sciencebased spiritual solutions to changing the way one thinks. With that in mind, Meshorer shared a few ways to get started: • Have compassion: You can’t be genuinely happy while you’re indifferent to the pain of oth-

ers. Compassion reinforces our feeling to the world around us and breaks down barriers of loneliness. Make a conscious decision to act compassionately toward others — including strangers and enemies — without the expectation of receiving anything in return. • Dispute negative thoughts: Don’t suppress your negative thoughts or paint them over with pretty colors. Running from reality can be counterproductive. Instead, recognize that not all your negative thoughts are rational or justified. Analyze your thoughts for how they began and why they may not be entirely accurate. Attempt to think about the people or things that are making you unhappy in the most objective light possible. • Be optimistic: Optimism is a practical and effective life strategy. Let go of your fears that being positive leads to disappointment. • Don’t place material conditions on happiness: To place your happiness at the whim of complex economic conditions out of your control is like playing Russian roulette with your soul. Don’t let your bank account define your happiness. • Practice affirmations: Our words are extremely powerful. What we say to ourselves and how we say it are vitally important, impacting our bodily health and mental wellbeing. While often viewed as dubious New Age musings, there is scientific evidence that doing affirmations can avert depres-

sion, according to a study by the American Psychological Association. Other studies have found affirmations can substantially improve body image, bolster business success and reduce stress. Sit somewhere quiet and repeat your affirmation out loud. More tips about personal transformation, along with information about Meshorer’s new book, can be found at By pursuing your happiness, you can live a more functional, fulfilled life.

(StatePoint) For many people, gardening is one of life’s greatest joys. But exercising your green thumb carries some risk. In 2012, more than 41,200 people nationwide were injured while gardening, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Don’t let a day of digging, weeding and watering get the best of you. Take steps to prevent and treat common gardening injuries. Protect Yourself • Safety goggles and gloves shield your eyes and skin from chemicals and pesticides and protect you from sharp or motorized equipment. • Spending hours in the sun each day can lead to sunburn and can increase your chance of skin cancer. Sport a widebrimmed hat, sunglasses and sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher. Take frequent shady breaks, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun is at its highest. • While watering your plants, don’t forget to water yourself. Drink plenty of liquids, but avoid alcohol or sugary beverages that will dehydrate you. • Use lightweight hand tools with rubber handles and ergonomic designs. Tools with offset handles make digging and weeding easier. Or cover your current handles in foam tubing. Sharp, clean tools work better and require less effort, so maintain or replace your equipment often. Handle extenders and reachers can help you

reduce the need for bending, reaching and stretching. • Stretch and get ready. “Prepare your knees and low back for all that bending and lifting. Before you get out of bed in the morning, lie on your back and pull your knees to your chest. Then drop your legs from side to side five to 10 times. If you begin this now, you’ll be rewarded with greater flexibility and a reduced chance of sprains and strains later in the season,” says Dr. Lauri Grossman, a New York chiropractor who has been practicing homeopathy for over 25 years.

(StatePoint) One of the customary perks of getting older is growing a little wiser along the way. You’ve most likely come to appreciate your “thicker skin” when dealing with life’s sticky situations. However, when you look in the mirror, all you seem to see is thinning skin — your epidermis that is, not your ego. The good news is there are steps you can take to help maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity and improve its appearance.

minor injuries with clove oil or aloe. Aloe also helps relieve sunburn and blisters. • “Before pain gets in your way, treat it at the first sign with a homeopathic medicine that works with your body to relieve pain rather than mask symptoms,” says Dr. Grossman. She recommends a natural pain reliever like Arnicare Gel. Try it for neck, back, shoulder and leg muscle pain and stiffness, swelling from injuries, and bruising. • For stings and bug bites, apply honey, baking soda, toothpaste or ice. By following a few precautions, you can make this gardening season a safe and pleasant one.
