Your Kitchen Need A New Look?
â€˘Avoid the mid-day sun. The sunâ€™s rays are strongest between the hours of 10am and 4pm, so stay in the shade during these hours if possible. â€˘Sunscreen does expire. Most sunscreens are designed to have a shelf life of three years but, if in doubt, toss it out and buy a new bottle. â€˘Reflective surfaces reflect 85%-90% of the UV rays. Avoid surfaces such as water, sand, snow, and concrete. â€˘Cover your head and face with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you need to be out in the sun. â€˘SPF stands for â€œsun protection factorâ€?. Look for SPF of 15 or higher. â€˘You can sunburn even on a cloudy day, so protect yourself by applying sunscreen and covering up even when the sun is not visible.
â€˘Be generous. Use at least one ounce of sunscreen to cover all parts of the body that are exposed to sunlight. Overexposure to the sun can result in skin cancer at any stage in life. Consider your exposure risks to the sunâ€™s harmful rays. If you are a sun worshiper, think about the long-term effects and modify your habits. Enjoy your summer but protect yourself so you can have fun in the sun for years to come!

Be Sun Smart
Everyone desires to have fun in the sun, and some sun exposure is ok because itâ€™s our primary source of vitamin D. (Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium for stronger bones.) However, it doesnâ€™t take much time in the sun for most people to get the vitamin D they need, and unprotected exposure to the sunâ€™s ultraviolet rays can be harmful. Do what you can to protect yourself. Use the following tips to ensure you are guarding your body from the power of the elements.

Buchanan County Health Center partners with East Central Iowa Acute Care Emergency services are among the most critical offerings for any community hospital. Chest pains, fractures, lacerations, car accidents, head trauma, dizziness, vomiting, unresponsiveness or trouble breathing — real emergencies like these come into the Buchanan County Health Center (BCHC) Emergency Department every day. To best respond to these emergencies, BCHC recently formed a new partnership with East Central Iowa Acute Care (E.C.I.A.C.), which fully staffs the emergency services at St. Luke’s in Cedar Rapids, and provides partial staffing for Grundy County Memorial Hospital in Grundy Center, and Jones Regional Medical Center in Anamosa. Beginning June 1, ECIAC staff will officially begin to provide board certified physicians and experience emergency physicians assistants for the BCHC emergency department. “Our new providers have been rotating in, picking up shifts throughout May,” said Deb Chudzinski, RN, BSN, Emergency Room Nurse Manager. “They have been great --v ery knowledgeable and professional. The new group brings a huge amount of emergency care expertise, and we hope to see a larger number of local people stay in town and allow us to be their Hospital of Choice as a result.”
Dr. Nate Harmon of E.C.I.A.C., BCHC’s new Emergency Medical Director agrees. “Board certification in emergency services, gives our providers an edge in triaging, stabilizing, treating and dispositioning critically ill patients,” explained Harmon. “Combined, the 20 medical professionals coming to BCHC have 166 years of experience in the ER. We serve as directors of 30 local EMS services and businesses. We have multiple medical examiners, multiple adjunct professors, and national representatives serving on the American Academy of Emergency Medicine Board, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.” Dr. Harmon, a Waterloo native, articulates three goals as ECIAC begins working in Independence. 1. To provide rapid and high quality care to our patients in the Emergency Department. 2. Work with local primary care providers to increase the number of people who can stay in Independence for care. This can be done by providing a higher level of initial care and better identifying patient needs. Ultimately, fewer patients will need to be transferred making recovery and

follow-up care more convenient for them and their families. 3. Work with local EMS services to support and improve care provided by area’s first responders. E.C.I.A.C Board Certified physicians and highly experienced mid-levels will provide 80% of the staffing needs at BCHC. The remaining time will be staffed by Jeff Ashline, a physician assistant that has been working in the BCHC emergency department for several years. “Jeff proved himself to be a very good provider in terms of both clinical ability and how he treats people,” added Steve Slessor, CEO. “We are pleased to retain Jeff’s expertise and 18 years of emergency experience during this transition.” The BCHC Emergency Department is open 24/7/365 to be provide high quality and fast serviceFor more information about the BCHC Emergency Department go to www. bchealth.org . Pictured: Kelly Bose, RN, Bonnie Corkery, RN, and Kelly Clement, RN, are among the experienced care providers at BCHC. Emergency Department nurses are all extensively trained and have taken several advanced certifications such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum (TNCC). These advanced certificates are renewed every 2 and 4 years. (Photo Courtesy BCHC)

Both rooms provide technology for laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures which result in a smaller incision and quicker recovery time for patients.

Heartland Acres to host Fishing Day
Info/Photos submitted by Craig Johnson Executive Director Heartland Acres
Family Fishing Day will be Sunday, June 15 at Heartland Acres Agribition Center in Independence. The campus will allow guests to fish at Swan Lake as part of their regular paid museum admission. Annual or lifetime members of Heartland Acres will be allowed to fish at no extra charge. The popularity of the Family Fishing day has grown. Many have asked for expanded fishing opportunities to get the kids out to enjoy the sport of fishing. As a result, fishing will be available the second Sunday of each month starting June 15 through September from noon to 4 PM. Wristbands to fish Swan Lake will be available at the admission desk in the museum. Swan Lake is approximately four acres and holds a variety of fish including catfish, crappie, bluegill and bass. For these events, anglers will be allowed to â€œcatch and keepâ€? all crappie, large mouth bass, and bluegill. All other fish are to be catch and release. Fishing will be allowed from the shore only and anglers are to bring their own gear. Simple gear, such as poles, 1/8 ounce jigs, twister
tails, hooks and sinkers, will work fine. Worms make the best bait and will be supplied lakeside at no charge. Anglers are to follow Iowa fishing laws and regulations and are required to have a valid Iowa Fishing License and be good sportsmen. For information about Heartland Acres visit www.heartlandacresusa.com or call 319-3320123. Heartland Acres is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.

Reap preserves Iowaâ€™s historical resources
It feels like summer has finally arrived! We will attend many community celebrations and participate in parades in coming weeks. RAGBRAI will roll through our area this summer. On June 14, thereâ€™s a lot going on, with parades in Hazleton at 10 AM, Readlyn at 10 AM and Winthrop at 4 PM. We always look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying all the fun activities that our local community celebrations have to offer. In the Legislature, we worked this year to continue boosting Iowaâ€™s quality of life. A highlight was our approval of a record $25 million for REAP, Iowaâ€™s popular Resource Enhancement and Protection Program. In 1989, the Legislature created REAP to look after Iowaâ€™s natural resources and cultural history. REAP has supported 14,535 projects in all 99 counties. Investment of $264 million statewide has leveraged two to three times as much in private, local and federal money. Over the last 25 years, our area has seen more than $6 million for 257 projects in Black Hawk County, more than $2.8 million for 141 projects in Bremer County, close to $1.5 million for 159 projects in Buchanan County and close to $2 million for 166 projects in Fayette County. REAPâ€™s Historical Resources Development Program provides grants to preserve, conserve, interpret, enhance and educate Iowans about our stateâ€™s history. Historical resource devel-
opment projects receive 5 percent of REAP funds each year. The State Historical Society of Iowa makes grants to individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations and agencies that use the money for a wide variety of historic preservation projects, libraries, archives and museums. More than $15.5 million in grant funds have been awarded for more than 1,200 historical projects across the state. These projects encourage and support economic and cultural development by improving the quality of life for all Iowans through outdoor recreation opportunities and preservation of our cultural and historic treasures. Local historical projects funded for 2014 include $50,000 for restoration of the historic Frank Lloyd Wright designed Cedar Rock Boat House near Quasqueton and $3,505 for preservation quality microfilm and the digitization of the Upper Iowa University student newspaper. To see more of the good work REAP has done in our area over the last 25 years, go to www.iowadnr.gov/Environment/ REAP/ProjectsbyCounty.aspx.

Buccaneer pride overﬂows at EB commencement
The Iowa Board Iowa universities of Regents will discuss a proposal during its June meeting that could result in redistribution of Iowa funding for the three state universities. According to the Des Moines Register, the board has distributed funding along a 4040-20 split, with University of Iowa (UI) and Iowa State University (ISU) receiving the most and the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) receiving the least. The proposal came about in part because of a concept suggested last year called “Iowa dollars following Iowa kids.” Although UNI has a greater reliance on state funds than the other two universities, it was noted that UI has a lower percentage of in-state students than the others. UNI had 89% Iowa students enrolled in fall 2013 compared to 60% at ISU and 55% at UI. Funding already budgeted for the 201415 school year will be split with UI receiving 46% ($231 million), ISU getting 36% ($181 million) and UNI obtaining 18% ($89 million). Under the proposed model, nearly $60 million a year of future funding for UI will be redistributed to ISU and UNI. Regents President Bruce Rastetter told the UI Staff Council last Wednesday that, “Iowa typically comes in third as a choice for college of Iowans. We consistently hear from parents that they don’t feel as welcomed on the tour here as they do at ISU and UNI.”
