Volkswagen Tulsa’s new Service Xpress Center offers fast, friendly, high-quality service. By Duane Blankenship Volkswagen Tulsa officially opened its brand-new Service Xpress Center on August 1 and invites VW owners to come by for a quick look around. “Volkswagen Tulsa’s new Service Xpress Center offers really fast service,” says Fixed Operations Director Lloyd VanZant, “and most services can be performed within 30 minutes to an hour.” Service Xpress is convenient, and it’s run by the friendly staff you’ve come to trust. There’s never a need for an appointment, and the technicians performing the work really know your Volkswagen. Assistant Service Manager Danny Smiley says, “Fast is good. Fast and right is much better!” Service Xpress is fast just like the quick lube places, and they’re convenient too. What sets them apart is Volkswagen Tulsa’s VWcertified technicians who use only genuine Volkswagen OEM

Helping Families Stretch Budgets Just Between Friends consignment sales save families money on children’s clothes and equipment. By Paul Tackett

Preferred Customer Requested Delivery August 1, 2012 Dated Material

PRSRT-STD U.S. POSTAGE PAID PERMIT NO. 1000 TULSA, OK

Just Between Friends continues to help families stretch their budget by continuing to offer children's clothes and equipment at unbelievable savings. Just when the economy seems to be getting better, something else pops up, and it finds a way to contribute to inflation and the shrinkage of everyone's take home pay. For many families, the toll on the family's budget continues and with back to school around the corner, many parents know buying clothes for their children and the necessary equipment can be expensive. Just Between Friends, the nation's leading children's and

maternity consignment sales event, helps families find some stability and security by being able to purchase an entire season’s wardrobe, even school uniforms, on a reasonable budget. Marcy Leffingwell, one of the new owners of Just Between Friends Broken Arrow/Bixby, doesn't always know where to begin when she starts talking about her JBF sales event. "Families not only eat better, they live better because JBF helps put some expendable income back in the family budget because of the great savings that can be found at a JBF sales event," Leffingwell said. Typically shoppers can

experience 50 to 90 percent off clothes and equipment, compared to retail prices. "Moms, dads and grandparents can get quality items for their children at amazingly low prices and still be able to buy the groceries for that month," Leffingwell said. Amber Post, franchisee of Southwest Tulsa and Owasso, was a JBF shopper before she started organizing her own JBF events. "We were young college students, broke and on a tight budget," Post said. She had a six-month-old daughter the first time she shopped at a JBF and even then, she was a slave to (continued on page 28)

STRAIGHT-FORWARD, NO-NONSENSE TALK ABOUT YOUR MONEY

20 QUESTIONS: I DARE YOU. BY MELANIE HASTY-GRANT

Do you remember playing the 20 questions game in middle school and jr. high? I do. It was a game similar to Truth or Dare without the dare part. The objective of the game was to get participants to focus and answer questions that they may not want to admit. It was a game designed to get to know yourself and your friends (or potential girlfriend/boyfriend) better. The following are 20 financial questions I ask in my office every day. You would be surprised at how many truly don’t know the answers. Go ahead….See if you can answer them. I dare you!

17) Why haven’t you already done it? 18) When do you plan to retire? 19) What do you plan to do in retirement? Is that what your spouse wants to do too? 20) Will you have enough money? How do you know?

10) How much do you save each month? 11) Do you max out your 401k?

1) How much money do you bring home each month? Your spouse?

12) If not, why not? 2) How much money do you spend each month?

13) What is your strategy (or advisor’s strategy) for handling market volatility?

3) Where does it go? 4) Where do you want it to go? 5) How much debt do you have? 6) What are the interest rates on your mortgage, vehicle, credit cards? 7) What is important to you about money? 8) Are you rich? (hint: trick question) 9) What does rich mean to you?

www.ValueNews.com

14) If I had told you 6 months ago that the stock market would be undervalued, would you have invested more, less, or pulled your money out? 15) Who is in “control” of the money at your house? If you are not, do you know the answers to these questions? You should. 16) What’s the one thing you could do today to start getting rich? (not robbing a bank, LOL)

Hopefully these questions are food for thought. May they ruffle your feathers and get you off that bump on the log. Who you trust matters. Thank you for reading my article. I am much obliged. Financial challenges are rampant these days. Some of them are avoidable. I have helped thousands of readers navigate these situations and lead richer lives.

CCuts for Kids Clary Sage College and Oklahoma Technical College will provide area students free haircuts August 8-9 and 15-16. By Tara Waugh Backpacks – check. New clothes and uniforms – check. Paper and pencils – check. These are just a few items that parents think about on their looming back-toschool lists. Getting the kids ready to go back to school can be a costly time for parents and guardians. One thing they don’t have to worry about is shelling out cash for a new back-to-school haircut. Clary Sage College and Oklahoma Technical College, branches of Community Care College, are giving back to the community by holding their 4th annual Cuts for Kids event. This exciting event offers free haircuts to school age children in the Tulsa metro area. Cuts for Kids will be held on August 8 and 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Clary Sage College, located at 3131 S. Sheridan, and on August 15 and 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Oklahoma Technical College, located at 4444 S. Sheridan. Last year, this event made over 750 Tulsa students happy, and they are expecting an even bigger turnout this year. While being supervised by master educators, cosmetology students

of Clary Sage College (CSC) and barber students of Oklahoma Technical College (OTC) get real-world experience and get to practice their acquired skills while giving back to the Tulsa community. Teresa Knox, founder and CEO of Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College, mentions how alumni even come back to volunteer with this event since this is usually the college students’ favorite community event to participate in. Students of CSC and OTC are giving to the children of Tulsa the confidence and good looks to start the new school year off on the right foot. According to Teresa, “The atmosphere of Cuts for Kids is fun, energized, and professional. Our students are excited to practice their technical skills as well as their soft skills for customer service.” Both campuses are trendy in their appearance, promote health and wellness, and emulate the pure artistry that goes on behind their doors. Teresa says, “Our students do an incredible job.” Since this is a community-driven function that

focuses on the technical skills and the customer service skills of their superiorly trained students, parents and Tulsa metro students will be pleased with their experience and results. Appointments are not necessary, but parents are welcome to call to see about the wait time since it can get busy. No styling is done during this time. So if parents and children are looking for styling or flat ironing, it cannot be done at the same time as the free haircut. However, they are giving to parents a ten dollar voucher, Clary Cash, to be used towards the many services that Clary Sage offers, like hair care, skin care, nail care, or massage – another perfect back-to-school treat for the kids’ new looks. Or better yet, parents, use the voucher for the much needed massage after all the back-toschool frenzy. Parents, rest assured that your children will be put in the most capable hands. Clary Sage College and Oklahoma Technical College are licensed and accredited institutions offering various diploma and degree programs. CSC offers programs

in barista, cosmetology, esthetics, fashion design, interior design, makeup artistry, massage therapy, nail technology, and master instructor. Additionally, OTC offers programs in automotive and welding technology and barbering. “Our schools have an unwavering commitment to our students, employees, community, charities that we support, and our vendors,” Teresa proudly states. Driven by rock-solid core values, the colleges’ goals are to make the world a better place, starting with the Tulsa community, and what better way to help the Tulsa

community than by lessening the burden of back-to-school costs for parents and families and by infusing Tulsa’s youth with self confidence for the impending school year, no matter what the family’s income is.

Get Back to a Pain-Free Life

The highly skilled doctors of Spinal Decompression of Oklahoma treat back and neck pain utilizing IDD® Therapy. By Sheryl Sowell Nearly everyone experiences back or neck pain at some point during their life; statistics show that this is true for 85 percent of the U.S. population. You may have heard about spinal decompression, or IDD® Therapy, as a treatment option, but are not sure exactly what it is. Spinal Decompression of Oklahoma (SDO), affiliated with Claremore Health Associates, Inc., is a board certified medical family practice headed by Dr. Dwight Korgan and his colleagues Dr. Gary Fortner and Dr. Steven Egleston. These physicians effectively treat back and neck pain with IDD Therapy using the Accu-Spina machine. IDD Therapy was developed by a team of neurologists, orthopedists and neurosurgeons to rehabilitate and heal damaged structures in the spine. “We administer treatment through intervertebral disc decompression, referred to as IDD Therapy,” says Dr. Korgan. “It is completely non-invasive and utilizes FDA-approved, highly advanced computer technology to deliver therapeutic distraction

forces to targeted spinal segments.” The treatment provides static, intermittent and cycling forces on structures that may be in pain due to distraction and positioning. The purpose of the treatment is to relieve the pressure between the vertebrae, causing water, oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the spine and re-hydrate the discs. Non-surgical spinal decompression provides a method for doctors to properly apply a decompression force and create a vacuum within the disc to allow blood and oxygen to flow to the damaged area, which is critical to disc health and repair. The process helps reduce pressure on the affected disc, relaxes and retrains muscles, and supplies muscles with blood and oxygen necessary for healing. IDD Therapy is used to treat patients who suffer from herniated discs, bulging discs, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and general low back and neck pain. Nearly anyone with back or neck pain can benefit from the treatment. “Our patients are

diverse. We see everyone from office workers to construction workers to retirees,” says Dr. Korgan. The advantages of IDD Therapy are numerous. The cost is minimal in comparison to the cost of surgery. It is also safe and less painful than many other options; in fact, most patients find the treatment process to be comfortable and relaxing. Perhaps the greatest benefit of undergoing IDD Therapy is the ability to continue working during the course of treatment. “Patients can continue daily activities during therapy but must avoid heavy labor and lifting, as tissues are in a weakened state,” explains Dr. Korgan. In addition, most insurance plans will cover treatment, and payment plans are available at SDO for those patients without health insurance. The course of therapy includes approximately 20 treatment sessions and is completed in about 35 days. The first ten visits occur in two weeks. Each session is performed by a qualified medical technician

The doctors at Spinal Decompression of Oklahoma effectively treat back and neck pain with IDD® Therapy. (L to R): Steven Egleston, M.D., Gary Fortner, M.D., and Dwight Korgan, M.D. and lasts for a total of about an hour and a half. Treatments are custom-designed, with pain relief occurring at varying times for each patient. Treatment begins with internal heat applied to the treatment area by ultrasound, relaxing the deeper muscles and tissues. A hot pack is then administered on the surface to help relax the patient and their muscles. Next, the Accu-Spina machine administers a 25-minute treatment. It generally takes all 20 treatment sessions for full hydration of the damaged disc. During each session, the Accu-Spina machine gently manipulates the offending spinal segment, while helping stretch and re-tone underlying musculature. The result is improved lumbar health and pain elimination in a significant portion of patients treated. “We

have about an 80 percent or higher success rate,” says Dr. Korgan. The diagnosis and treatment process at Spinal Decompression is medical physician directed, with a qualified doctor overseeing all procedures. “Quality patient care is paramount, and we assure that all patient concerns are addressed and thoroughly explained prior to beginning treatment,” says Dr. Korgan.

the RRide Mother Road The annual Bike MS Ride is scheduled for September 15-16. By Duane Blankenship Prior to 2003, Mary Benes was an avid runner and fitness buff. In January of that year, she noticed that she was occasionally tripping with her left foot. Initially she didn’t think much about it, but with time the condition worsened. Mary then started noticing that she had begun clipping her right ankle with her left foot. She knew something was causing the problem and consulted with doctors, who began a lengthy barrage of tests in an effort to pinpoint the cause of the problem. Mary was originally diagnosed with just about everything, from a bulging disc to a left knee abnormality, as it had begun buckling without rhyme or reason. In early November of 2003, her orthopedist performed a strength test on her left knee and found it to be weaker than normal. The doctor concluded that Mary’s issues could be related to a neurological disorder, and she underwent a head-to-toe MRI. She was finally diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Mary was placed on a daily

injection regimen of Copaxone, a prescription product developed for the reduction of relapses in patients with multiple sclerosis. She immediately saw favorable results and has had no relapses to date. Although she could no longer run, she still had a strong desire to remain fit. Mary has a vibrant personality, loves people, and loves to help them. She attended a “newly diagnosed” seminar in May, 2004. She was so impressed with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society that she began volunteering so that she could reach out and share her story. “In 2006, I volunteered to help with the Bike MS bicycle ride and found myself making a commitment to do the ride myself the following year,” said Mary. The rest is history. Mary was asked to join the American Airlines MS Bicycle Team in 2007 and has since participated in each yearly Bike MS ride. This year’s Bike MS guest celebrity is Kristin Dickerson, co-anchor of Tulsa’s Channel 8 evening news. She will be riding part of Bike MS with Mary. As a spokesperson for the

National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mary has spearheaded development of other programs that aid research and treatment to stop the progression of the disease, restore function, and end MS forever. The National MS Society supports and funds research activities spanning all research stages, including early discovery research, translational research that brings promising ideas forward into actual therapeutic solutions for testing, and clinical trials. Their unique approach drives the pursuit of all promising avenues that can impact those living with multiple sclerosis. Oklahoma’s 2012 Bike MS event (also known as “the Mother Road Ride”) is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16, and will begin at the Hyatt Regency Tulsa on Saturday morning. Riders will depart for Chandler, where they will camp overnight in a local park. Sunday morning, riders will mount their bikes and head for the Oklahoma State Capitol, where the ride will conclude.

Guest celebrity rider Kristin Dickerson, co-anchor of Tulsa’s Channel 8 evening news, and Mary Benes, spokesperson for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, have been training for the 2012 Bike MS Ride. Buses will bring Oklahoma City participants to Tulsa Friday evening and will transport Tulsa area cyclists back home Sunday afternoon following the ride and closing festivities. If you are a cyclist but have never participated in Bike MS, this is your opportunity to support the event and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Your involvement will aid in research and the finding of a cure for MS. “Whether you’re interested in cycling, volunteering to help with the Bike MS event, want to make a donation, or sponsor a team, everyone makes a

difference to those of us with MS,” says Mary. “Since I was diagnosed with MS in 2003, it’s been quite a ride!”

the Difference at SSee Precision Optical Your vision could be the best it’s been since you started wearing eyeglasses. By Duane Blankenship I’ve been wearing eyeglasses since I was in college. I have never been so impressed with an optician, his products and their features as I was when visiting with ABO Certified Optician George Dakil, owner of Precision Optical in Broken Arrow. George has been at Precision Optical for 21 years. He spent his first three years working there and has been the owner for the past 18 years. I recently purchased two new pairs of glasses from another store. Do I have buyer’s remorse? Yes, I do. George not only knows his stuff, but he takes the time to explain every feature and benefit to his customers and demonstrates exactly what each does. Your eyeglasses can not only fit and look great, but they can now be customized to the way you drive and live. I left Precision Optical with two words burned into my mind: progressive and polarized lenses. George clarified two terms that are often used interchangeably by mistake: no-line progressive lenses and Transition™ lenses. A noline progressive lens is one that has no lines in the lens for when you are viewing objects that

range from distant to intermediate to near. You can still get bifocal or trifocal lenses that have distinct lined segments needed for you to clearly see objects at varying distances, but in this day and age, progressive lenses are much more flexible and aesthetically appealing, free from the cluttered effects of lined segments. Transitions lenses are those that change from clear to dark as you go from indoors to the bright sunlight outdoors. This is hard to explain, but very easy for George to demonstrate to you. No-line progressive lenses offer a continual gradient progression of bifocal or trifocal power. It’s no longer a jump from distant to intermediate to near, but rather a smooth transition that offers a gradient progression that hits all the focal points between the three major focal points – distant, intermediate, and near. You now have the ability to see clearly at virtually any distance. Many people are currently wearing Transitions lenses and are unaware that there is a new development in Transitions options. A new version of

Transitions lenses called Vantage arrived in May that not only go from clear to dark like standard Transitions, but also have a function of variable polarization. This means that this type of lens will not only darken in sunlight, but it will polarize as it turns darker. Vantage lenses are not intended to replace full polarized sunglasses, but for folks who just won’t wear sunglasses, this type of lens may be their best option. The only drawback is that the Vantage lenses will not darken behind the wheel of a car. When you visit Precision Optical, George will visually show you the only polarized photochromic lens that darkens outside as well as behind the windshield of a car. This type of lens is called Drivewear. The lens reacts to different weather and light conditions from overcast to bright light by utilizing visible as well as UV light, while at the same time providing a high efficiency polarizer that blocks blinding glare. You simply won’t believe the difference they can make. George highly recommends the Prestige II lens by Seiko.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY YOUR NEXT PAIR OF EYE GLASSES Do you have a strong prescription? Are you walking around with an unfilled prescription in your pocket? Did you know it is best to get it filled ASAP? Do you realize that strong RX’s DEMAND greater precision with optical center, Bi-focal and MRP placement? Have you had problems with the vision and fit you may have received at shops that herd you through like cattle?

ABO Certified Optician George Dakil customizes eyeglasses to fit your style and activities. You’ll be glad you see him before you buy your next pair. “The Prestige II is a back surface progressive addition lens. These custom-made lenses use a revolutionary patented technology that three-dimensionally fuses your entire prescription onto the back surface of the lens, resulting in a visual experience that is simply unmatched by conventional progressive lenses that split your prescription between the front and back surfaces,” says George. When your prescription is on the back of the lens, closer to your eye, the visual zones are much wider. “It’s like looking through the keyhole of an old door lock. The closer your eye gets to the key hole, the more you can see in the next room,” said George. George demonstrated features and benefits that will definitely be in my next set of eyeglasses. Precision Optical is

not just another optical shop where everyone gets basically the same package. When you visit Precision Optical, talk with George, and let him demonstrate and make a recommendation for your optical satisfaction, you will clearly see the difference. Do yourself and your eyes a favor and stop by Precision Optical to learn about new leading-edge product technology and how it can make your vision the best it’s been since you started wearing eyeglasses.

Are you hard to fit? Large or small hat size with eyes set close over the nasal area combined with the lower ear syndrome means you need an experienced optician to fit you and keep your eyewear maintained.

Are you tired of feeling baited by unrealistic prices? Only to find out that the eyewear is stripped-down S.V. versions that are cheap, unattractive, fit improperly, scratch and break easily. Many won’t hold adjustments and just don’t have the features you need.

Have you tried conventional surfaced no-line progressives in the past and failed to adapt? Technological advances in “DIGITAL” lens manufacturing have radically improved the optics, fields of vision and dramatically reduced distortion so that almost anyone can wear them. Check out the Seiko Perfas Prestige II on the first two YouTube videos at the bottom of our homepage. These lenses could be extremely helpful to contact lens wearers, those who wear readers over contacts, and those who cannot or will not rely on corrective surgery for their visual correction needs.

NNeed a Quality Contractor? Cole’s Quality Construction offers remodeling, new construction, additions and much more for residential and commercial properties. By Joshua Danker-Dake Cole’s Quality Construction does jobs of all kinds and sizes, whether you’re looking into remodeling, new construction, or an addition for a residential or a commercial property. “Where a lot of contractors will only do parts of jobs, we do entire projects from start to finish,” says Doug Cole, co-owner of Cole’s Quality Construction along with his wife, Holly. “We do pretty much anything you can think of on a house – we build new homes from the ground up, as well as garages, patios, decks, pergolas and chimneys. We do remodeling, additions, windows, siding, bathrooms, kitchens, roofing, painting, flooring, carpentry, doors, small repairs, large repairs, vanities, brick work, trim work, and gutters.” Doug Cole has been in construction for 22 years, and has been in business for himself for 13. With the exception of plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work (for which he uses licensed and insured subcontractors), Cole is personally involved in all the work on every job. “I enjoy construction and being creative,” he says. “Sometimes customers aren’t exactly sure what they want when they get started on a job,

and I’m happy to sit down with them and draw up the job to give them the best fit for what they need, whether it’s color charts, stain charts, wood types, or whatever else.” Cole makes it a point to keep every customer in the loop throughout each job. “We work

with the customer through the entire process,” he says. “Communication is important, as is making sure the customer stays involved. I’m always available if a customer needs to reach me. And we always clean our job sites daily. It’s your home – you’re the one who lives there every day,

and we respect that.” Cole also emphasizes customer flexibility. “Some customers, including many in the military who get discounts at certain home improvement stores, like to buy the materials themselves and have us do the labor, and that’s fine with us – we’ll

MMill Creek Customers Wood Be Impressed Mill Creek now offers on-site sand-and-finish hardwood floors for residential and business projects. By Duane Blankenship Mill Creek has long been known for quality, highly fashionable floor coverings. For years they have been a leader in the Tulsa market, providing carpet, tile and stone, wood and laminate vinyl, granite, kitchens, and windows. The company has recently added a new division to its arsenal that provides the ultimate in custom hardwood flooring to Mill Creek customers. Mill Creek Hardwood Floors is headed by General Manager Jamie Fixico. Jamie and his four-man team of project managers will ensure that the high service standards of Mill Creek will be front and center of the new division. Project Managers Jason Owen, Rob Driscoll and James Dixon are already advising and educating customers on the woods, styles and finishes available at the new show area at the company’s 41st Street location. They also provide on-the-job inspections and supervision as each hardwood flooring project gets underway. “Our new hardwood floors division provides on-site sand-and-finish hardwood flooring to homebuilders, commercial builders, their customers, and our existing customers,” said Jamie. “We are

hardwood flooring specialists who provide custom hardwood floors designed to exceed customer expectations.” The team installs raw woods that may then be hand scraped, distressed or beveled to your specifications. They work in wood species native to Oklahoma including hickory, oak, walnut, American cherry, pine and knotty alder. Woods are available in a variety of widths, from 2 ¼ inches up to 12 inches, and all can be laid in patterns, including herringbone and basket weaves. “You dream

it and we can make it happen,” said Jamie. Mill Creek Hardwood Floors also specializes in repairing and replacing wood floors damaged by water. When a wood flooring job is started, the floors are thoroughly cleaned before the tar is laid. Six mill plastic is then put in place, followed by 5/8-inch plywood and 15-pound felt paper. The raw wood selected is laid in the pattern you have chosen, sanded, filled, sanded again, stained, and covered with a finish coat of

polyurethane. Dust containment systems are used during the process of installing your new custom hardwood floor, and the rest of your home or business is shielded by plastic barriers taped in place around the perimeter of the work area. “We offer a variety of old world finishes and patterns that are great for busy families with kids or pets,” said Jamie. Mill Creek is a full-service floor covering store. They provide customers the ability to shop in one place for any

flooring material desired. According to Jamie, wood floors have grown increasingly popular over the past several years and are commonly used in custom-built homes today. “Some residential builder customers have used wood floors throughout many of the custom homes they have built,” said Jamie. “And because we buy directly from the mills, our prices are very competitive in today’s market.” When you’re ready for an enchanting hardwood flooring that will add a warm, fashionable surface that is both functional and beautiful to your home or business, be sure to visit the hardwood floors showroom at Mill Creek on 41st Street between Sheridan and Memorial. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the variety of woods and finishes available.

VValuable Lessons Outside the Schoolroom

Wolfe Pack Taekwondo offers before and after school programs for students, in addition to a variety of other programs for all ages and skill levels.

By Duane Blankenship Wolfe Pack Taekwondo was founded in 2007 by the husband and wife team of Mike and Lisa Wolfe, both fourth degree black belts in taekwondo. The pair has been practicing taekwondo for 18 years and firmly believes in teaching life skills to students through the taekwondo tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit. Wolfe Pack currently operates locations in Tulsa and Jenks, and the Tulsa location is gearing up for before and after school classes. According to Lisa, “Classes improve fitness, coordination, power, and stamina through traditional taekwondo methods and techniques, and our students learn to defend themselves in real-life situations.” Wolfe Pack also provides sport competition training in Olympic style fighting and karate style fighting. Wolfe Pack promotes leadership and community spirit through demonstrations for local charities and events. After school martial arts classes at the Tulsa location begin August 1 for pre-K through 6th grade. The Wolfe Pack bus will pick students up at Key, Grissom, and Discovery schools immediately after school,

and classes will be conducted from 4 to 5 p.m. Students may attend from one to five days each week. Parental pick up is no later than 6 p.m. each evening. Students will be afforded a quiet time to read or do homework,

They will be encouraged to complete homework assignments prior to parental pick up and to be ready to spend evenings with family members. Early morning Cage Fitness workouts are new and also begin

Lisa Wolfe and members of the Wolfe Pack Taekwondo “Fight Like a Girl” team.

and a healthy snack will be provided to each. The goal of the classes is for students to learn full taekwondo skills, plus the five tenets of character building.

August 1 at both Wolfe Pack locations. Cage Fitness sessions will commence at 6:30 a.m., with the programs targeting men and women between the ages of

18 and 45. Wolfe Pack Taekwondo is a licensed training center for this program, developed by Mr. Matt Hughes, nine-time UFC welter weight champion. Each workout will feature five 5-minute rounds stressing cardio, stretching and flexibility, and strength. Students will do a lot of pounding on 25 to 40 pound dummy bags while wearing UFC training gloves. “It’s a great way to get fit without getting hit,” says Lisa. The program is great for all fitness levels, with each student striving for a personal best each time they do a workout. Mike Wolfe will lead the Cage Fitness classes. Only females are eligible to participate in Wolfe Pack’s Fight Like a Girl (FLAG) training program taught by Lisa Wolfe. Lisa says she is the only female in Oklahoma certified to teach FLAG. The program focuses on personal violence prevention including awareness, trusting your senses, and personal fitness. Her youngest student is 10, her oldest is 68. You must be at least 10 years old to participate in this program. Lisa offers demonstrations at schools, churches, and to other groups, and hosts field day events for

schools each year. World champion board breaker Cassandra Long trains at Wolfe Pack Taekwondo, and the Wolfes are extremely proud of her accomplishments. Cassandra has been a Wolfe Pack student for four years and will attend the University of Oklahoma this fall. Lisa and Mike were organizers of the AWPBA (All World Power Breaking Association) and each year host an Olympic-style tournament. “Everyone has a good time and earns what they deserve,” says Lisa. Please contact Lisa or Mike Wolfe for complete details on Wolfe Pack’s before and after school programs, Cage Fitness training, FLAG, and martial arts classes. Both Wolfe Pack Taekwondo locations are open Monday through Saturday.

Don’t Wait to Schedule Non-Emergency Surgery

Roberta Wagle at the Lap-Band® Center of Oklahoma at Pinnacle Specialty Hospital advises patients to begin the process of scheduling surgery now, rather than waiting for the end of the year. By Sheryl Sowell Roberta Wagle, bariatric coordinator at the Lap-Band® Center of Oklahoma at Pinnacle Specialty Hospital, sees it all the time: patients waiting until the end of the year to move forward with their non-emergency or elective surgery. “Many people meet their insurance deductible in October and think they can wait until then to schedule their non-emergency surgery,” says Roberta. “What most don’t realize is how long the insurance process actually takes – it’s often two to three months. If someone decides they would like to have the Lap-Band® procedure done or need to schedule gall bladder surgery, they really need to begin the process in August.” The insurance process is lengthy for any non-emergency procedure, especially the Lap-Band® surgery, as insurance companies require that the surgery is proven to be a medical necessity. “Patients often think they can simply meet with the surgeon and set the surgery date. For some non-emergency surgeries, and the Lap-Band® procedure in particular, several steps must be taken,” Roberta

explains. “Patients first attend an educational seminar. Then they have a personal consultation with the surgeon. Next, the patient must meet with their primary care physician, undergo a dietary consultation as well as a psychological evaluation, and complete any other preliminary work that must be taken care of in order for the insurance company to have a complete letter of medical predetermination for the surgery.” When you think about it, it makes sense that the process takes so long. It can take a week or two to schedule an appointment with the surgeon, another week or two to get in to see your primary care physician, an additional week to have the psychological evaluation scheduled – and so on. “In addition, the surgery itself has to work with your own schedule and the surgeon’s schedule,” says Roberta. After the predetermination letter has been mailed, it often takes the insurance company 30 to 45 days to reply. “If you’re interested in Lap-Band® surgery, or if you have any other non-emergency medical situation

you want to take care of, such as gall bladder, cataract, breast reduction, or joint surgery, we strongly advise beginning the process now.” If you initially visit with the surgeon in August, the surgery itself can still be scheduled for November or December. “Basically, the insurance process takes a lot longer than people realize. If you know you are going to meet your deductible in October, the month of August is when you need to start the process of proving medical necessity to your insurance company,” adds Roberta. Dr. Ladd Adkins of the Lap-Band® Center of Oklahoma offers exclusively the Lap-Band® by Allergan to people who are medically classified as morbidly obese. The Lap-Band® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is the only FDA-approved gastric banding system for patients who are at least 30 pounds overweight, with a BMI of at least 30 and one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions, including coronary artery disease, type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and

Those with the greatest success pay close attention to the foods they eat and exercise regularly, and typical weight loss is one to two pounds a week. Some foods are more difficult to digest than others, such as breads and starches. As Dr. Adkins explains, “The system actually forces people to make healthier food choices. But that’s what they need to turn their lives around.” The next free Lap-Band® educational seminars will be held at 7 p.m. August 9 and September 13 and 27. Call (918) 392-2806 to reserve your spot.

AAcademy of Risk Seminar The Holmes Organisation will present its annual client appreciation seminar August 30 at the Renaissance Hotel in Tulsa. By Lorrie Ward With the cost of providing benefits to employees on a continual rise, CEOs, risk managers, business owners and HR personnel need to keep abreast of the latest changes, developments and ideas in order to balance their budgets. That’s why The Holmes Organisation in Tulsa will present its Academy of Risk 2012 Client Appreciation Seminar on August 30, 2012 at the Renaissance Hotel in Tulsa. “We provide ongoing education for our clients,” says Dee Sink, lead consultant at The Holmes Organisation. “The Academy of Risk Seminar is part of that.” One of the main topics covered at the seminar is OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) with speaker Danny Edwards, risk architect, who will cover subtopics including “What To Do If OSHA Comes Knocking at Your Door,” “Surviving an OSHA Audit,” and “OSHA Compliance Obligations.” “Danny has actually had clients who have been through OSHA audits,” says Cindy Davidson, account executive at

The Holmes Organisation. “He’s helped his clients and wants to show others how to survive these audits.” Tanya Curry, director of claims for The Holmes Organisation who has been called upon to teach classes to state organizations on her

seminar topic, will cover workers’ compensation issues: “Workers’ Compensation Basics: Who, What, When and Where It Applies”; “Best Claim Practices”; and “Return to Work and Light Duty: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” Felix Jones, retirement

Dee Sink, lead consultant, and Cindy Davidson, account executive.

specialist for The Holmes Organisation, will speak on 401(k) disclosures, covering subtopics such as “Fee Disclosure Regulations,” “Retirement Plans,” “Impact of the Department of Labor’s 408(b)(2),” and “How to Survive a 401(k) Audit.” Eric Moon, dubbed “Wellness Dude and Coach” by the staff at The Holmes Organisation, where he serves as corporate programming consultant, will speak on “Crafting a Culture of Wellness” and “Incentives and Barriers for Wellness.” The seminar will wrap up with keynote speaker Kim Holland, who will cover topics relating to health care reform legislative updates, shedding light on the status of healthcare reform implementation across the United States and the impact of the Supreme Court’s latest decision on healthcare reform. “Kim Holland is a former insurance commissioner and currently serves as a lobbyist in Washington D.C.,” says Sink. “She is highly qualified to bring us all up to date with what’s

happening on the hill.” Bringing clients up to date with information and education is what The Holmes Organisation is all about. “We value our customers, and we want to make sure they are continually educated on current legislative and regulative updates,” says Davidson. “That’s why we do all of this.” “The basis of this seminar is education and serves as a ‘thank you’ to our clients, but you don’t necessarily have to be a client to attend this seminar,” Sink adds. “However, seating is limited, so it is best to contact us as quickly as possible if you are interested. We welcome anyone who deals with and wants to learn more about these issues.”

EExperience Native American Culture The Pow Wow of Champions will be held August 17-19 at the Mabee Center in Tulsa. By Lorrie Ward On August 17-19, 2012, the ORU Mabee Center (7777 S. Lewis in Tulsa) will burst to life with a colorful and vibrant display of Native

American culture as the Intertribal Indian Club of Tulsa (IICOT) presents the 35th annual Pow Wow of Champions. The IICOT invites everyone to come

and experience dance, drum music and song as tribes from across the nation congregate to strengthen their traditions by sharing them with the world through ceremonies, dances and dance competitions. The event kicks off with the Grand Entries, a bright and exciting procession of dignitaries and dancers led by the Eagle Staff and the Native American Color Guard, marching to an engaging and energetic drum beat. Soon the competitive sessions begin, and dancers will enthrall the audience and judges with bright hues and skillful footwork and rhythm. Visitors will want to visit the Arts and Crafts Mart and peruse a large selection of jewelry, artwork, beadwork, paintings, and handcrafted items. Traditional foods including fry bread, corn soup and Indian tacos will tempt the taste buds and help to round out this one-of-a-kind experience of true Native American heritage. For those interested in being a vendor at this event, vendor fees will be accepted until the Saturday of the event, until all spaces are filled. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the IICOT

Don’t miss the brightly adorned dancers at the Pow Wow of Champions.

Pow Wow, and Lynnetta Seward is proud to note that she has been a part of this event all of her life. “I was born into IICOT—my uncle Terry Adams and my grandfather Harry Adams started this organization with a few other gentlemen,” says Lynnetta. “Our organization is our legacy to our children. One day, it will be my son, my nieces and nephews, my grandchildren and so on that carry this family tradition of IICOT through to the next century, and our culture will continue to live.” Education is also very important to IICOT, as evidenced by their Terry Adams Memorial Education Award, which is awarded to Native American students who have completed 60 college hours. Lynnetta’s love for this event is obvious in her description: “At the Grand Entry, you feel the drumbeat in your heart, a beautiful song is being sung. The vivid colors on sparkling beadwork take your breath away. As I stand on the speaker stand stage with my sister by my side, my heart swells. I see proud parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles. I see their smiles.

Dancers are showcasing their style; the fact that they love to dance emits from them like a sparkler in every step. I take in every moment, every sight, every smell, every sleepless night—it’s all worth it. I just thank our Creator that we have the opportunity to hold our Pow Wow of Champions.” The Pow Wow of Champions is a family event, alcohol and drug free. The Pow Wow opens at 5 p.m. Friday, August 17, and dancing starts at 6 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, doors open at 11 a.m., and dancing begins at noon. A Souvenir Program will be available for purchase, and parking is free. To advertise in the IICOT Souvenir Program or for more information on the Pow Wow of Champions, please call (918) 378-4494.

Your Best Face PPut Forward This Fall Advanced Cosmetic Medicine provides cosmetic procedures that will have you looking great this season. By Sheryl Sowell The summer will soon be winding down, and as hard to believe as it is, fall will arrive soon after. This year has gone by so fast it’s hard to keep up. Did you start the year planning to do something for yourself? Now it’s already August and you haven’t done anything? Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine has just what you’re looking for. She offers cosmetic procedures to make you feel beautiful and refreshed, just in time for the upcoming fall season. According to Dr. SpoorBaker, Botox is still, without a doubt, the fastest fix for aging expression lines on your face. Deep lines between the eyes make you look tired or angry even when your face is still. It certainly gets worse with age. Within three days, Botox will make that area look flatter and smoother. People will think you look relaxed, and you will even feel more relaxed. With repeat Botox treatments in the first year, those lines can be gone. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse and Juvederm can make the area around your mouth and your entire face appear 10 years

younger. This is as close to immediate as you can get. Dr. SpoorBaker principally uses Juvederm in the lips to restore fullness and soften those unsightly, aging vertical lip lines. These form from pursing your lips with speech and activity, and also from loss of lip volume. Restoring lip volume takes years off your face and

creates youthful visual balance between the eyes and the mouth. This can last four to six months. For those “parentheses” lines around the mouth – nasolabial folds – Dr. Spoor-Baker recommends Radiesse for her patients. Radiesse is a firm, well-tolerated, calcium-based filler that provides structural support for the skin

around the mouth. This area sags over time. She explains to her patients that fillers are for the topography of the face. If you have hills and deep valleys, then fillers go under the valleys to soften the transitions of the hills. The overall effect is a plumper, firmer, more youthful appearance. Radiesse in the nasolabial folds can last up to 12 months. IPL/limelight laser treatments can improve a wide range of issues on aging faces. Most people over 35 have sun damage – unfortunate, but true. Sun damage can mean brown spots, red pigment or veins, dilated pores, and uneven texture. IPL/limelight treatments reduce red and brown pigments, and help to even out texture and pores as well. “It usually takes more than one treatment, but if you have substantial pigment issues, even one treatment can be dramatic. I usually recommend a minimum of three treatments,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. The Pearl laser is a serious approach to aging skin. This is a type of “fractional” resurfacing laser which removes a layer of surface skin to promote smoothness and generate a high degree of collagen remodeling. Pearl treatments can truly turn back the age clock. Pearl resurfacing gives you the dramatic change of highgrade chemical peels with the photo-rejuvenating effects of a laser, with a greater degree of specificity and safety. Any one of these procedures can make a significant, dramatic and fast improvement to aging and sun-damaged skin. Combining two or more

procedures can fix multiple problems. If you need more information, Advanced Cosmetic Medicine offers a complimentary consultation that allows Dr. Spoor-Baker to evaluate your concerns and pick the right treatment for you. It’s really not necessary to wait to the New Year to see a new you. It simply takes getting started and moving forward, fast or slow. It’s all about where you want to go and how fast you want to get there. Don’t let another three months go by before you do something – you might wake up and two years have gone by! Don’t forget that small steps done over a period of time can make a big difference, too. Babyfresh skin may be a long way away, but if you strive daily to slow down sun exposure, wear sunscreen and eat better, your skin will improve. “My daily consumption of a whole food concentrate of fruits and vegetables for the past 10+ years has made my skin at 49 much better. I know that keeping my skin covered while doing yard work or outside activities has saved me from huge amounts of sun damage,” adds Dr. Spoor-Baker.

Does Your VW Need Service? vehicle when you bought it. You’ll never be fooled by aftermarket providers or products at Volkswagen Tulsa. “In addition to getting fast, convenient service performed by VW-certified techs using genuine Volkswagen OEM parts,” said Lloyd, “we are competitively priced.” Service Xpress is there when you need it, with hours of operation being 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. In addition to convenience, you’ll receive the peace of mind that comes with knowing the job was done right the first time and every time. And each time you

visit the Service Xpress Center, your vehicle will get an “all-over” checkup that includes the interior, windshield, wiper blades, battery terminals and cables, engine drive belts, hoses, headlights, hazards, and side and tail lamps. They will also check the shocks and struts, engine air filter, fluid levels, pollen filter, exhaust system, brakes CV boots and joints, and tread depth of each tire. You’ll leave confident that any immediate or pending issue with your car has been pointed out to you with a recommendation and time for getting it repaired. If you’re a VW owner, here’s something that should interest

continued from page 1 you. How well do you know your used VW? There are many owners who are unaware that their Volkswagen may have free scheduled maintenance and service available, whether they are the first, second or third owner of the car. Lloyd says that if you will go to the website and send Volkswagen Tulsa your car’s model and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), within two business days they will check it out and advise you if your car has been identified for a recall update, if any of the original warranty still remains, or if an extended maintenance warranty is available for it. It costs nothing

to find out, and it could save you some money. “Half of VW owners don’t know that they have a maintenance policy on their vehicle,” says Lloyd. “Most competitors offer two-year warranties as long as you own the car. Volkswagen Tulsa offers free scheduled maintenance for up to three years or 36,000 miles, whether you are the first or the current owner.” Volkswagen Tulsa also sells tires, batteries, and accessories for your VW.

"I could only afford to buy her the basics and shop the clearance racks, but once I discovered JBF, it was like a dream come true," she said. Suddenly Post could buy everything she wanted for her and not jeopardize her family's budget.   After shopping once, she decided to consign and received a check for $75 from items she sold, and she was hooked. It was

so easy to do, and a sales event has so much to offer in terms of clothes, shoes, toys, books and more for the upcoming season. Daven Tackett, owner of Just Between Friends Tulsa and co-founder of JBF, is most pleased that the sale is a dignified way for a parent to buy children's clothes at great savings. Moms and dads can feel good about letting their children wear and play with the items purchased.

Prepare to Be Impressed You may or may not know that once you stain a concrete project, it is stained, and you will not be able to re-stain it once the lime in the concrete is burnt by the staining. Attempting to re-stain an existing stain project can have disastrous effects on your concrete project. Many people attempt to reseal their faded stain project, and it only compounds the problem and shortens the lifespan of the stain itself, creating a milky, dull finish. Impressive Design Concepts has a proven and professional solution to your stain problem. They focus on restoring your stain project with a new and superior finished product that will last for many years to come, and the attractive cost makes this process a must have. Impressive Design Concepts was born in August of 2006 and sprouted out of the owners’ desire to beautify their home.

She did many creative things to make ends meet, including buying some of our clothes from resale and going to garage sales," Tackett said.

New Goodwill Opens in Glenpool A new Goodwill store and donation center on Highway 75 now serves customers in Glenpool and surrounding communities.

By Duane Blankenship Goodwill Industries of Tulsa’s store number 10 celebrated its ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremonies on July 12 at 8:45 a.m. The parking lot was overflowing as local dignitaries and eager customers attended the ribbon cutting ceremony and then proceeded inside the beautiful new store, filling its aisles with shoppers. The first 50 customers received a Goodwill 85th anniversary shopping bag. The new Goodwill store is located on Highway 75 and 125th Place, just south of Walmart, where it will

conveniently serve customers from Glenpool, Jenks, Bixby, Kiefer, Beggs, Okmulgee, Liberty Mounds, Sapulpa and surrounding areas. Goodwill Store Manager Debbie Timmons said, “We have had wonderful support from Goodwill and the Glenpool community. And I have the most incredible associates in this store. I really appreciate them and all the hard work they did to make the grand opening such a tremendous success.” The new facility is both a

Goodwill donation center and retail store. As Goodwill President David Oliver said during the grand opening ceremony, “We accept and sell any of the items you will see in the store when you shop here.” The bright new shopping area is stocked full of wonderful fashions for ladies, men, juniors and children, and offers clothing, shoes, purses, housewares, books, small household appliances, wall decorations, collectibles and more. The donation center does not accept large appliances, mattresses, tires,

furniture or building materials. Furniture, however, can be donated 24 hours a day, seven days a week at the Goodwill Donation Center at 2800 Southwest Blvd. in Tulsa. The Glenpool Goodwill store has scheduled several promotions to accommodate shoppers. The first and third Tuesdays of each month are designated as Senior Day Sales. Oklahoma’s tax-free weekend on clothing and shoes is August 3-5. Saturday, August 11 highlights Goodwill’s Back-toSchool Sale. August 16 is Goodwill Day. August 25, the last Friday of the month, is designated as Goodwill’s Customer Appreciation Sale. Debbie Timmons encourages shoppers to come to the store soon to find some really great deals on back-to-school and school uniform items. Supplies will be limited, so don’t put it off. “It’s always fun to shop Goodwill as seasons change,” says Debbie, “and as we approach the holiday season.” Hours for both the Goodwill store and donation center are 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday

Goodwill Industries of Tulsa’s mission is simple: to provide job training, employment opportunities, and support services for people with disabilities or other employment barriers. “We envision a community where all people have the training and opportunities they need to be successful in the workplace, regardless of the employment barriers they must overcome,” said Goodwill President David Oliver. At Goodwill, people are treated with dignity and respect. And it’s all made possible by people like you who donate your goods to Goodwill and shop their retail stores. Debbie and each of her associates look forward to seeing you soon at the new Goodwill store in Glenpool. For more information, contact

VVendors Wanted Vendor space is available for two big September events – the Gold Rush Mercantile and the Rogers County Fair. By Lorrie Ward With school starting early this year, the month of August is sure to race by with September at its finish line –which is why Tanya Andrews, executive director of Claremore Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), and Lisa Dennis, marketing coordinator, want to be sure and remind local craftspeople, merchants and vendors of upcoming opportunities for booth space at the Gold Rush Mercantile on September 1-3 and the Rogers County Fair on September 13-15. The Gold Rush Mercantile is held in conjunction with the Oklahoma Palomino Go for the Gold Futurity, a horse show and competition in which 250 Palomino horses and their owners, riders and families join to display their talents at the Claremore Expo Center September 1-3 (show hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the 1st and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the 2nd and 3rd). In keeping with the spirit of this event, the Gold Rush Mercantile is accepting exhibitor registrations to those selling western wear and jewelry, western décor and home furnishings,

as well as horse care related items such as equestrian supplies, accessories and equipment – even items as large as horse trailers and pickups. Exhibitor

applications will be accepted through August 24 and can be obtained by calling the Claremore Convention & Visitors Bureau at

(918) 341-8688. Admission is free to the public. “This is a chance for local entrepreneurs and businesses to showcase their merchandise,” says Tanya. “The event will also have great food and activities for the children.” After a short two-week interval, it will be time for the 98th annual Rogers County Fair, and vendor sign-ups are open for this event as well. As marketing coordinator of the CVB, Lisa Dennis broadened the scope of the fair last year and will do so even

more so this year. “This year will be the first year in a long time that we’ve added a true old-fashioned fair carnival,” she says. “We will have fair food and rides for the kids.” This larger arena provides even more opportunities for potential vendors. Lisa reports that last year’s vendor booths hosted a wide variety, everything from food to insurance to jewelry to handmade items to western tack to the local marina. Lisa, who graduated from Western Illinois University and came to work for the visitors bureau in January of 2011, enjoys living and working in Rogers County, and her commitment to her new home is evident by her desire to make the Rogers County Fair better than it has ever been before. She hopes that vendor sign-ups will reflect an even broader spectrum of what Rogers County has to offer. Fair book and entry forms for potential Rogers County Fair vendors are available at www.rogerscountyfair.com, with an August 24 deadline. Information can also be obtained by contacting Tanya or Lisa.

QQuality Surgeon Worth the Drive Marilyn Antell of Fort Smith, Arkansas received a life-changing total knee replacement from Tulsa orthopedic surgeon Dr. LaButti. By Sheryl Sowell Marilyn Antell lives in Fort Smith, Arkansas, but she travelled to Tulsa for her total knee replacement surgery. Why? Because this is where Dr. Ronald LaButti practices. Marilyn had been in pain for 10 years – at some point she had taken a fall, and the discomfort became increasingly worse over the years. She couldn’t walk for long distances, stand for more than about five minutes, or sleep through the night. “I waited so long to do something about it because I’m afraid of hospitals. But the pain got so bad, I had to do something. Any kind of physical activity was nearly impossible, work was difficult, and I could hardly ever sleep. People told me all the time that I needed to get a wheelchair,” she explains. Marilyn’s brother was the one to put a bug in her ear about resolving her pain problems. He had received a partial hip replacement in Cincinnati and was extremely happy with the results. “He advised me not to settle for just any surgeon. I visited three doctors in Fort Smith and wasn’t comfortable with any of them.”

Marilyn’s daughter worked at a publishing company in Fort Smith and knew a few people that had received hip or knee replacements from Dr. LaButti

the process was painful, but definitely worth it.” Marilyn scheduled an appointment with Dr. LaButti and made the drive to

doctors try to ‘play’ you for their own benefit. I liked that Dr. LaButti was honest and highly professional,” she says. Dr. LaButti performed Marilyn’s total knee replacement on her left knee in February of this year. “He told me that my knee was in the worse shape he had ever seen! But he was very reassuring that I’d be ok, and I trusted him. I had many friends praying for me, and I trusted that God had led me to the right decision. Four months after the operation, the pain was completely gone,” says Marilyn. “It’s amazing. Now I have a knee that works.” This summer, Marilyn dug a hole in her yard and planted a crepe myrtle tree. She was overcome with emotion when she realized she hadn’t done that in 10 years. “It was a very big moment for me. If I had planted a tree before the operation, I would have paid for it big time, with extreme pain and lack of sleep.” Marilyn’s quality of life is drastically better than it’s been in years. “Walking feels like what walking is supposed to feel like. I can depend on my knee now.”

She works as a church secretary, and her job is now easier to perform and much more enjoyable. “My job description is ‘go-fer’ – I’m constantly on the go, running errands, cleaning and scrubbing, making bank deposits, grocery shopping for food that the church donates to locals in need. I can get in and out of the car without pain, unlike before. Recently we held an event at the church, and I was even able to set up tables and pick up chairs to move.” Marilyn will soon return to Dr. LaButti for a replacement of her right knee. She says her experience with Dr. LaButti and his kind, caring staff makes the drive to Tulsa well worth it. For more information about Dr. LaButti, visit www.hipandkneedoc.com.

SEEKING PARENTS!

Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement Available exclusively with Dr. Ronald LaButti

This brand-new technology produces a 3-D image of the knee which allows for superior surgical accuracy and alignment. When compared to more traditional forms of navigation, the iBlock cutting guide provides a significant advantage not only for the surgeon, but for the patient as well. When a joint is replaced, even a miniscule misalignment between the implant and the bones can harm joint performance and longevity. This innovative technique allows for precise measurements made dynamically in real time. There are only five “iBlock” units in the United States, and this technology is available in Tulsa only with Dr. LaButti.

Labor Day Lakeside Extravaganza

A full weekend of activities is planned for the entire family at one of Oklahoma’s most pristine lakes. By Sheryl Sowell Beginning on Saturday, September 1, Cross Timbers Marina at Skiatook Lake is hosting three days of activities that will feature live music, boat tours, raft races, Backyard BBQ Cook-off, Vintage Car Show, Golf Competition, a Kids Zone, cardboard boat races and more. “Clean, Clear and Close,” with over 160 miles of naturally

beautiful shoreline, Skiatook Lake is located just 25 minutes from downtown Tulsa. According to Ron Howell, Cross Timbers Marina developer, “This area has not had a traditional Labor Day lake event for many years, and it was our feeling that Labor Day should have an event attached to the water. Skiatook Lake is a

wonderful ‘play’ lake – we have the cleanest, clearest water in northeast Oklahoma. We anticipate our inaugural Labor Day event to be a wonderful, fun celebration that families will return to participate in year after year.” Starting off the weekend on Saturday, September 1, lakegoers will enjoy music from local

TTwo Days of Doggone Fun The 3rd annual Claremore Dog Expo will be held August 25-26 at the Claremore Expo Center to benefit the local animal shelter. By Lorrie Ward If you love animals and are passionate about the issues concerning them, you will want to mark your calendar for one of the area’s premier events hosted to promote pet health and safety: the 3rd annual Claremore Dog Expo, held August 25-26 at the Claremore Expo Center and benefitting the Claremore Animal Shelter. “We want this to be a loving, caring and positive experience,” says Debbie Kara, owner of Karalot Pet Care and active volunteer at the shelter. To facilitate this goal, two days of fun activities have been planned. The feature event will be Dog Docks, a water competition in which dogs jump in water and compete for height, distance, speed and retrieving, open to anyone over the age of seven and their dog (any type of dog is welcome). “Last year we had competitors from six states compete,” says Jean Hurst, supervising animal control officer at Claremore Animal Shelter. “And we look forward to seeing them again this year.” Other competition categories include Herding, Agility, Schutzen, Rallying and

Dog Drill Team. Fun contests will be held as well, including Best Costume, Ugliest and Cutest Dog, People/Dog Lookalike, and Best Trick. For a small fee (donated to the shelter), attendees may also enter their dogs in an agility course. Admission to the event is $6 for adults, $3 for youth ages 6 to 12, and free for children under 6. The youth entry fee is half price with a donation of dog or cat food or cat litter for the shelter pantry. Weekend passes will also be available. Since one of the primary aims of the Claremore Animal Shelter is to adopt out pets to loving homes, it is no surprise that animals will be available for adoption at this event. “We will be featuring dog adoptions from local shelters and rescue groups like Lab Rescue, Corgi Rescue, Boxer Rescue, Zois Rescue and others,” says Rocky Ambrister, animal control officer at Claremore Animal Shelter. “This event got started not only because we wanted something for people in the community to come and participate in with their dogs, but so we could showcase shelter and rescue dogs

that need homes.” The event is also designed to be educational. The Tulsa Zoo will have a representative on hand to teach about native reptiles of Oklahoma, as well as to educate people on proper pet ownership. Jean reports that there will be veterinarians present at the event also. “We encourage people to bring a list of questions about pet health, grooming and training.” Jean and Rocky hope this event will educate people about pets and pet ownership, as well as the goals of the shelter. “All of our volunteers are from the community, and we have received a wealth of support from Petco as a corporate sponsor for this event,” Jean says. “We are a family of animal lovers with the same goal in mind – to save abandoned animals.”
