FROM THE PUBLISHER

Happy Spring! Y es, I know, it feels like summer, but that is OK. This Florida girl loves the heat. I think I am out numbered though. We had a great response to the two contests we are running. The cover photos were coming in fast. However, we had a computer crash here and most of the photos that were sent in were lost. Our hearts just sank and we ask that all residents that sent in the photos to PLEASE do so again. There was one of a baby with an Easter outfit on and I so regret it being lost. We will hold off on this month’s contest winner till everyone can resend their photos.

There were four correct entries for the hidden picture contest. We put the names in a bowl and drew out the winner, who is: Jenny Joo. Congratulations! Jenny wins a $25 gift card to Applebee’s. The hidden rainbow was in Dr. Duga’s ad. Everyone can try again each month, there is no limit. The hidden picture for April to hunt for is a solid blue easter egg.

GOLF TIP OF THE MONTH

The Ever Dreaded Bunker Shot

T

here are various techniques for getting out of sand, but using the same principle as the flop shot is very effective. The main difference is that you hit the sand first, not the ball. If you were to take a divot with a practice swing (which is not permitted during play) the ball would have been in the center of that divot. Just like the flop shot, let the club do the work and keep the arms and center moving to a follow through. If you want to get the ball up faster, hinge your wrists in the back swing.

A good rule of thumb for soft sand and good lies is to open your stance and your club face. For bad lies, wet or hard sand, square your stance and close your club face. Remember: hit the sand first and follow through keeping your arms and center moving. Keep in mind it is against the rules to ground the club in a hazard and test the depth of the sand. You are permitted to take a fair stance, so moving your feet to get a balanced position is permissible. - Orlando Rabeiro 1st Assistant Golf Professional Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club

Karate Classes The Pro Karate Center was established to promote good mental health, physical fitness, and self defense through the Okinawan style of karate, Isshinryu. Isshinryu’s main objective is the perfection of oneself through both physical and mental development. As students learn the art of self defense they acquire selfconfidence, humility, and the ability to concentrate. Isshinryu Karate combines a well-rounded exercise program with important advantages over other styles. At Pro Karate Center we understand the problems unique to youngsters, and concerns parents naturally have. This well organized, professionally planned children’s Isshinryu program is designed to help parents in the task of building a child’s self confidence, self discipline, positive outlook, and self esteem. They learn to take pride in themselves and their accomplishments. The Pro Karate Center offers a satellite program of classes right here at Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club. We feel our programs are the best the area has to offer featuring well– organized classes for children, teens, and adults. Wednesday: Beg. Youth (W,Y,O), 4:05 - 4:50 pm Adv. Youth (Blue +), 4:55 - 5:40 pm Adults (ages 16+), 5:45 - 6:45 pm Saturday: Beg. Youth (W,Y,O), 11:05 - 11:50 am Adv. Youth (Blue+) 11:55 - 12:40 am Individual Monthly Dues The program is progressive and classes are recommended for two days/week but the following option is available for those who cannot make the two day/week commitment. 2 days a wk: Members $70 1 day a wk: Members $40 Adult : Members $50

Aquatics Coach’s Corner

by Todd Timmons, Tampa Palms TBAY Head Coach

Taper/Training Point to Ponder Spring taper season has come and gone meaning most of the swimmers in this area have come full circle within what should be one of three to four tapers in one calendar year. Hopefully, all the athletes in this area met their goals for this micro season, however that is not always the case. Moving forward into the next phase of the season it is important to remember these objectives: • Meet with your coach to set individual goals that are attainable and realistic. The goals should not just be time drops; rather practice goals and technique improvements need to be articulated. • Train hard • Have fun • Have confidence not only in yourself, but also your training and your team. • Do not over analyze your races prior to competition. Yes, mental preparedness is critical, however when race time comes you have to have the autonomic response to “fire” at a relaxed rate. All the thought of swimming needs to happen at practice, so that one can react at competition.

Club News These features are especially good for people who tend to get heel pain, says Raiken, and not so good for people whose ankles twist easily, as shoes with extra cushioning tend to provide less traction. Some shoes allow you to pump up the tongue, which lets people with difficult-to-fit feet achieve a more customized fit.

Fitness Tip Tips from the Trainer Joanna Van der Laan

10 Tips for Choosing Athletic Shoes Proper-fitting shoes make all the difference whether you walk or run. Its knowing which shoes to buy that seems to require an advanced degree. Choose the wrong athletic shoes and you could end up lying on the couch nursing shin splints or aching heels instead of enjoying a brisk walk or run. While most specialty sport-shoe stores have knowledgeable staff to guide you, you’ll be a few steps ahead of the game armed with some basic knowledge about your feet and their specific needs. Here is some expert advice to heed before buying new footwear:

1.

Don’t make shoes multitask. Walking shoes are stiffer; running shoes are more flexible, with Page 10

9.

extra cushioning to handle greater impact. If you do both activities, get a pair for each one.

2.

* Know your foot. Sure, we’ve all got 10 toes and two heels, but beyond that, feet come in a variety of shapes -- and knowing your foot’s particular quirks is key to selecting the right pair of shoes. Most major brands now offer a model to suit every foot type.

3.

Feet change, measure your foot frequently. “It’s a myth that foot size doesn’t change in adults,” says Steven Raiken, MD. “It does change as we get older, so have your feet measured twice a year. Sizes also vary between brands, so go by what fits, not by what size the shoe is.” Raiken is director of the foot and ankle service at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

4.

Shop toward the end of the day. Feet swell over the course of the day; they also expand while you run or walk, so shoes should fit your feet when they’re at their largest.

5.

Bring your own socks -- the ones you wear while running or walking. If you wear orthotics, bring those, too. Shoes need to fit with the orthotic inside.

6.

Don’t believe in breaking in. Running and walking shoes should feel comfortable right away, Raiken tells WebMD. Walk or run around the store a bit to make sure they feel good in action.

7.

Use the rule of thumb. There should be about 3/8-1/2 inch between the front of your big toe and the end of the shoe -- about a thumb’s width. The heel should fit

relatively tightly; your heel should not slip out when you walk. The upper part of the shoe -- which goes over the top of your foot -- should be snug and secure, and not too tight anywhere. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons writes that when fitting in to an athletic shoe you should be able to freely wiggly all of your toes when the shoe is on.

8.

Understand the bells and whistles. Some models of running shoes look better suited to a space mission than a run in the park, but some of those groovy-looking features actually serve a purpose. Clear inserts, filled with gel, Freon, or air, provide extra shock absorption, as do those springy-looking things.

Don’t over- or underpay. Good-quality running and walking shoes are fairly pricey -- and usually worth it. “A $15-shoe will not be as good as an $80-shoe,” says Raiken. But you’ll pay a premium for super-fashionable styles or those associated with a celebrity -- and they won’t be any better for your feet.

10.

Know when to replace them. The average pair of running shoes should be replaced after about 350-400 miles of use, says Clifford Jeng, MD, a foot and ankle surgeon at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Md. Better yet, go by how your shoes look and feel. Once the back of the sole is worn out or the shoe feels uncomfortable or less supportive, it’s time to take those tootsies shopping again.

Tenn s Tip of the Month

Positive Attraction

Having a positive attitude isn’t something you simply tack onto your personality. Positivity isn’t external like a new suit or a new pair of shoes. It comes from deep within. It must, or it would be eliminated with the first sign of a counter negative force. Grand slam champion Martina Navratilova calls herself an optimist and says a positive attitude is a choice. “You have to have a positive attitude to be a champion, and you have to be in the moment. That’s what life’s about,” says Martina. “Because if you’re not with that ball

April 2012

right that split second, if you’re just a second late wondering, ‘Oh, did I hit that well?’ It’s too late. You have to be right in that moment. That translates into real life quite nicely.” Positivity is built on having your own positive life philosophy, on knowing your strengths and on surrounding yourself with other sources of positivity. Be positive and stay positive on the court and positive results will follow. Always remember that “Pressure is a privilege.”

FROM The EXPERTS

Essentials Massage & Facials

Why should I have a facial? Regardless of your age or gender, if you want your skin to look its best you have to take care of it. A facial does for your skin what a month of exercise and good nutrition does for your body – noticeably improve its look and feel. Through exfoliation, deep-cleaning of the pores, stimulating improved circulation, and use of professional-strength products, your esthetician can make a lot of progress towards improving your skin in a single session. Like the personal trainer, they have experience, techniques, products and equip­ment that cannot be replicated at home. Likewise, regular facials (especially with an active home-care regimen) will help prevent breakouts, keep your

Page 12

surface cells newer and healthier, and thereby ensure that your skin looks its very best. Your esthetician can recom­ mend the optimal frequency for your particular skin - it will vary from person to person.

Regardless of the type of facial you select, your esthetician will select the products used following complete skin analysis. Further, all products used in spa facials contain the most effective ingredients available. If you’ve gone into a spa for a facial, then you’re deluding yourself to say you’re 100% happy with your home skin care routine. A good facial therapist will prescribe the right products for your skin.

Why is exfoliation important?

Why should I go to a spa to have my facials? Your facial will be as effective as the training of your esthetician, and the quality of products and equip­ment at her disposal. Spas carefully hand-se­lect only the top licensed estheticians who are both clinically skilled and possess a nurturing, client-fo­cused approach to skin care. Every individual’s skin is unique, and therefore, each service is customized to the individual.

As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are both

Dr. Eskandari attended Howard University College of Dentistry and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1997. She completed a general residency program at Hillsborough County Dental Research Clinic and has been in practice since 1999. Dr. Shayes originally attended Shiraz University School of Dental Medicine and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1995. He later attended Nova Southeastern in Ft. Lauderdale and earned his DMD

Dr. Eskandari says that cosmetic dentistry, such as full crowns or Invisalign (clear braces), is one of her favorite parts of her job. “A total makeover, when you see patients smile who haven’t smiled in a while, is very rewarding. Many people cover their mouth with their hand or won’t open their mouth to smile because of the way their teeth look. Then after treatment they gain the confidence that they bring that into the workplace or even into their social life.”

A Briter Dental Care offers discounted in-house specials that are many times better than most conventional insurance plans, saving their patients money. Many times Dr. Eskandari and Dr. Shayes can save patients between 15 – 20 percent on their treatments. Dr. Shayes explains that many times insurance companies have limitations to their policies, and the dentists don’t want patients to go without having their dental health needs met. The two dentists offer flexible hours, which includes Saturday appointments and same day emergency visits.

I carry merchandise that is typically found in a boutique, but since I do not have a storefront, my prices tend to be less expensive. I refer to my business as a ‘boutique on wheels.’ Instead of customers coming to me, I bring the store to the customer. I definitely carry enough to fill a store! My merchandise is geared toward the missy customer who wants to look fabulous at a reasonable price. She also likes to travel and wants fashions that are versatile, that travel well, and that are easy to care for. Most of my merchandise can be

Community Spotlight Cat Crusaders, Inc.

J

Neighbors Making a Difference

ennifer Palanda and Tyler Alverez both live in Tampa Palms, but they didn’t know each other until they started volunteering with Cat Crusaders, Inc., an all-volunteer cat rescue in the New Tampa/Wesley Chapel area. It was their desire to help, a need for community service hours, and their love of cats that brought them together. When it comes to the rescue, there is always plenty for volunteers to do. Students earn community service hours by volunteering at Petsmart New Tampa by BJ’s, where Cat Crusaders shows cats 7 days a week. Students are trained to kennel, which includes cleaning food and water bowls, scooping litter boxes, and of course, giving the kitties plenty of love. While kennelers are used during

the week, it is the weekends that are always in short supply of adult and student volunteers. Volunteers sign up for the hours they want to volunteer, so they set their own schedule and can volunteer for as much or as little as they desire. A majority of the cats and kittens find their forever homes on the weekends, so Cat Crusaders works in shifts on the weekends, which include Sat from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adult volunteers learn how to screen individuals for adoption and oversee the high school student volunteers. There are always several volunteers at each shift, so no one is alone. Jennifer and Tyler are often in the store, helping with adoptions on the weekends.

Cat Crusaders is also always in need of foster homes for the furballs until they are adopted. Cat Crusaders supplies all the food, litter, and vet care while foster homes supply the love, and a clean, safe, indoor environment. Entire families can participate in fostering, and students earn community service hours for fostering, as long as their parents confirm that they helped care for their foster kitties. Kitten season has just started and Cat Crusaders as usual, is being hit from all sides. They try and help people in

the community, while also trying to save lives by taking kitties out of the two local kill shelters. Cat Crusaders is always looking for volunteers. There are many things to do from kenneling the adoption center, to helping with adoptions, to fostering a cat. There are even fundraising opportunities for those with allergies who want to help. For more information, visit them at PetSmart New Tampa on the weekends, or www. tampacatcrusaders.org, or call (813)472-9700. v
