Once reassembled, the Capen House would be preserved as a historic location for events and of on raising at least $650,000 by the end of this year. A letter of intent regarding the relocation was sent off to the Po kornys earlier this month. Debbie Komanski, executive director of the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden, said the cou ple responded positively to the project, and she remains hopeful that the museum will succeed in saving the house.

A transportation bill signed by Gov.

Page 2 asked to approve an increase of that fee of $250 to pay for the ad ministrative costs of the new red nearly double the cost of the pre vious fee. When I saw we were going to charge a $250 fee to collect $158, I actually was very troubled by that, said Mayor Ken Bradley shortly after pulling the item from the consent agenda for discussion. The city was asked to set the fee before determining plans for its yet-to-be-drafted public hear ing system, which Mayor Bradley pointed out seemed like a back ward order of operations. But after debate, the City Com mission chose to keep the fee at $137, and requested a six-month evaluation of the process and its costs to see if the fee needed to increase. Commissioner Carolyn Cooper believed that a higher fee to con test a citation would create even further animosity toward the red introduced to the city in 2011. There was a lot of opposition to red light cameras and the leg islature, Cooper said. I dont more opposition. Winter Park Police records over the past three months show that in Winter Park theres be tween 1,400 and 1,600 red light violations each month. Records also show that between 15 and 20 percent of violators in Winter Park contest their citations. These numbers raise questions about how helpful the cameras are to begin with, Bradley said. Red light running, to me, is a safety issue, Bradley said. Are we safer because of these red light cameras? Thats one thing that we need to look at. People have accused me well youre just doing this to make money for the city. Not at all. This is not the process that were using to make money, this is the process that were trying to use to enforce our laws and to make it a safer driving environment. The new city hearing system raised concerns, but the change from court hearings to city hear ings could make it easier for resi dents to appeal a citation, Winter Park Police Chief Brett Railey said. I feel that the hearing process will be much less intimidating for a violator should they desire to contest a violation, Railey said. The hearing process is less formal than the process in place until July 1 of this year and as navigate through the system. Railey noted during the meet ing that a hearing system through the city would mean that citations would not go on the license of a violator, keeping insurance costs down in the long-term. As for the costs of the new hearing system, the six-month evaluation will have to wait until camera citation hearing takes place, Railey said. I think theres another princi ple at play, and that is our citizens have a right be heard in court, Bradley said. If we charge that price so much, I think that we havent just taxed without representation, tion, which frankly is even more problematic to me. City Commissioners will work to establish the hearing process for the red light camera appeals during the upcoming Commis sion meeting on July 22.

But in case FDOT cant move the project west, the Maitland City Council agreed on two alter native ideas in a special meeting July 15. FDOT has agreed to study and implement either of the ideas ies can be completed, analyzed and approved by FDOTs Sept. 1 deadline. Otherwise, the addi tional desired construction costs will fall back on Maitland. It seems like you and, con sequently, us are getting put be tween a rock and a hard place by DOT, Druid Isles resident Fred Sells said, encouraging the Coun cil to do whats best and right for Maitland. The Council unanimously and preferred option challenges FDOT to come up with a new traf ramp to stay open, possibly by extending it eastward to eliminate weaving issues. The second backup option proposes opening a one-way northbound connection from Sandspur Road to Maitland Boulevard from Concourse Park way, which borders Orangewood Christian School and Maitland Concourse South. A third option drafted by the citys Transportation Advisory Board, which proposed allow Parkway onto Sandspur Road, was thrown out after residents argued future development in the have longstanding impacts on the residential street. Its a deal breaker for us, for mer mayor Doug Kinson, a Mait land Woods resident, said. We members echoed resident senti ments that the city needs to push FDOT toward keeping existing keeping up the integrity of Mait lands neighborhoods. [FDOTs] job is to control borhoods, Councilman John Lowndes said, reiterating a resi dent who spoke earlier. That, he said, remains in the citys hands now and through the planning and construction processes.

But the Leesburg Lightning (17-11) wont let them get away so easily. As of the start of the week both teams were on their longest win ning streaks of the season at the same time, adding some drama to the Florida Collegiate Summer And in the fracas even the College Park Freedom (8-20) have begun to come around, win ning two straight and coming within two games of the DeLand Suns (10-17), who have rapidly dropped toward the bottom of the league. In their wild seven-win tear the Dawgs (19-9) have had some strange luck in their scheduling, putting them up against the for merly league-leading Orlando Monarchs (16-11) and longtime rival Sanford River Rats (13-15) in all of those games. In their most recent win against Orlando on July 15, it wasnt even close. Four Dawgs shared the RBI duties, though grabbed the spotlight, blasting two doubles in the game. But it wasnt all about extra bases from the batters box; three of the Dawgs took the small ball route and picked up bases on the run, with Daniel Sweet swiping his 15th bag of the season. Brett Nizamoff handled the Monarchs easily, with six strikeouts in six innings. The Dawgs played a pair at press time, but will return to the diamond at home at 7 p.m. July 18 against the Freedom. Sanford hosts DeLand at 7 p.m. the same night at Sanford Memorial Sta dium.

Duda to the Board. David serves as President and Chief Executive Ocer of A. Duda & Sons, Inc., an Oviedo-based company founded in 1926 by Slovakian immigrant Andrew Duda. Much like the bank itself, A. Duda & Sons, Inc. was founded with agricultural roots but has evolved over the years into a multi-faceted operation. Today, the company operates throughout the United States not only as a fresh vegetable grower but also as a diversied land company with a wide array of agribusiness and real estate operations. David Duda represents the fourth generation within his family to serve as its President, having joined the company in 1987 as a Business and Systems Analyst. In 2001, Duda was promoted to Chief Financial Ocer and, prior to being named President in 2009 and CEO in 2010, served as Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Ocer. A native of Oviedo, David earned his Master of Business Administration degree in Finance, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Food and Resource Economics, both from the University of Florida. He is a member of the Florida Council of 100 and a past member of the Central Florida Chapter of Financial Executives International. He has served as Chair of the External Advisory Committee for Food & Resource Economics at the University of Floridas College of Agriculture and also served on the Board of Supervisors of the Viera East Community Development District. He is a member of St. Lukes Lutheran Church, and has served as Congregational Vice President and President. In addition, David was a Board member of Orlando Lutheran Academy, including service as Chairman from 2008 until 2010. David and his wife, Carolyn, have three children: Steven, Natalie and Ellen. He counts among his hobbies hunting, shing, traveling and gardening. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to welcome David to our leadership team, Lee said. His long tenure as an Oviedo businessman and his understanding of this community and region are exceptional. Its dicult to miss the parallels between Citizens Bank of Florida and A. Duda & Sons, Inc., Lee continued. We both are proud to call Oviedo home and have our roots in agriculture. As the years have passed, we have evolved as a comprehensive, full-service community bank while A. Duda & Sons has diversied and grown across the nation. We hold both David and his company in very high regard, and our bank will be the beneciary of his experience and insights for years to come.

Send email to columnreply2@gmail.com Housing vouchers for vets without homes Keep your cool this summer with these tips Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

King Features Weekly ServiceMarch 2-8, 2009 RB DESIGN By Samantha MazzottaReusing Wood for FlooringQ:Ive been watching some home-improvement shows on television lately that advocate greenbuilding techniques, including reusing wood from other structures for a homes wood flooring,rather than buying new. What do you think about this trend,and how do I go about doing this? Larry in Tempe,Ariz.A:Recycled wood flooring is a good trend,in my opinion, because rather than chopping down live trees to supply the hardwood for your floor,wood from many types of disused structures or other sources of salvaged lumber can be remilled to give it a second life. There is some concern that the current stock of highquality salvaged wood will run out eventually,but no timetable has been given for that. Recycled hardwood is often of better quality than new hardwoods. Its been curing for many years,resulting in a tighter grain and more stability. Also, much of the current stock of recycled wood originally came from oldgrowth forests,most of which either no longer exist or are protected,and so youre getting high-quality denseness and stability that most new woods cant match. One thing it is not,however,is cheap. Recycled hardwood costs much more than new (Toolbase Services estimates that it runs about $5.75 to $11 per square foot,while new oak flooring runs about $3 per square foot). Recycled wood also must be installed by a professional. Despite the cost,recycled wood tends to be beautiful and durable and a nice conversation piece at parties. If youre interested in having it installed, many flooring contractors are able to procure and install recycled wood.

For some veterans,the answers lie in dogs. But not just any dogs. Specially trained dogs are being given to some veterans suffering from PTSD,and in many cases,its working. When out in public,the dogspresence invites social conversation,yet they will place themselves physically between someone approaching and the veteran,who is likely to still be leery of contact. With the dogs,veterans find that theyre able to leave home without fear and can slowly transition to a more normal life. Many of the dogs are trained in prisons in the Puppies Behind Bars program,where they spend a year with specially trained prisoners [www.puppiesbehindbars.com]. To turn the tables a bit,a group called Paws for Purple Hearts [www.assistancedog.org] allows veterans with PTSD to become trainers for dogs that will assist veterans with physical disabilities. Run by Bergin University in California,the Paws program gives a needed sense of purpose to veterans with PTSD,as well as the grounding and self-worth that come from knowing theyre working to help someone else. In this case its a veteran with physical disabilities. For more information,call PPH at 707545-3647 ext. 28. Steps also are being taken to head PTSD off at the pass,again using dogs. Combat Stress Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan are shipped over with therapy dogs that quickly become popular with service personnel. The dogs serve,among other things,as icebreakers and stress relievers,inviting conversations that might otherwise not take place. For a real treat,do an Internet search for Boe and Budge,two therapy dogs that were sent to Iraq with a stress team. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service,P.O.

Dull Chest Pain Disturbs SleepDEAR DR. DONOHUE: Im in my 60s and never had a major illness. I take no medicines. During the past three months, I have been wakened from sleep with a dull pain in the center of my chest. My husband told me to take Mylanta. I did, and got instant relief. What do you think of this pain? V.P. ANSWER: Pain that wakens a per son from sleep must be taken seriously and ought to be reported to the family doctor. However, the response you got from taking Mylanta (an antacid) makes me think of GERD gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as heartburn. Stomach acid and digestive juices spurt into the esophagus, a structure not equipped to deal with them like the stomach can. If this nighttime pain of yours keeps coming back, put 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed to keep stomach juices in the stomach when you lie down. My first statement about nighttime pain has to be observed. You need to see the family doctor to be certain this is heartburn and not one of the many other serious possibilities. The booklet on coronary artery disease, another cause of chest pain, details its signs and symptoms. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue No. 101, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE: I had two cousins, sisters who died of pancreatic cancer less than a year apart. One was two years older than the other. They grew up and lived in the same Midwestern town. I am concerned about their other sister. Could the disease run in the fam ily? Their mother died of cancer at the age of 40, but we dont know what type of cancer. Anon. ANSWER: Two sisters dying of pancreatic cancer makes you sit up and take notice. If a brother, sister or parent had pancreatic cancer, the risk of another family member coming down with it increases by 18 times the risk for a person without such a family history. Pancreatic cancer most often appears between the ages of 65 and 84. Aging, smoking and chronic inflammation of the gland are other factors involved in its genesis. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a very active 45-year-old female dance teacher with a surprising white blood count of 2,500. My weight and diet are excellent. I stay away from sugar. I do not feel sick. What can I take to raise my white blood count? S. ANSWER: Youre the second per son in the past three weeks who is concerned about a low white blood count. The normal count is 4,500 to 10,000. The chief role of white blood cells is to battle attacking viruses and bacteria. You have no symptoms from your lower-than-normal count. Your body defenses are in fine shape. Your count might be normal for you. It bears watching. Nothing you take can raise the count. In your case, it doesnt need to be raised. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

For Behers the journey to his position at Cornerstone began when he was age 10. My dad died and our family received zero care, says Behers. I was told brave boys dont cry and that process of how I had to work through the grief developed into a natural anity to help others who are facing the loss of a loved one or their own end-of-life. Behers is sharing his years of experience with his team by compiling a handbook, Toward Excellence in Spiritual Care, which focuses on techniques for providing compassionate spiritual care.

Ciullo said shes been visit ing the graves of her family and building an extensive family his tory and genealogy for years. I can gather all this informa tion and thats great for my fam ily, but unless there is someplace to put it, nobody is ever going to see it. Thats why this [app] is so important, Ciullo said. Currently, the app, which was developed by the city, is func tional in both Palm Cemetery and Pine Cemetery in Winter Park. Eventually self-guided tours of the cemetery will be available in both locations. Using the apps GPS feature, visitors will be able to go directly to the gravesites of Its not quite ready yet, said cemetery representative Janna Baumann. Were hoping to work out all the kinks soon. Baumann said the app allows history buffs and genealogists the opportunity to link names on headstones with photos and per sonal information that make his tory come alive. Using this app, a stroll through Palm Cemetery becomes a lesson in local history. A search for Clara Wards grave takes you down the very same dirt road that decades of Winter Park citizens have walked to bury their dead, under towering pines and oak trees that remind visitors what the area looked like in the pioneer days. With a modern device to guide them, using GPS linked to a sat ellite in outer space, users are led directly to the grave location and provided with a photo and life story of an ancestor or historical Suddenly the dead are alive again, if only long enough to share their story with the current generation.

Page 8 Free bikes, more parks and a web of walking paths will help some Central Florida cities get healthier in the next few months. Healthy Central Florida, a part nership between Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foun dation, recently awarded $25,000 in grants to community partners who are ready to move forward with projects aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles in Winter Park, Eatonville and Maitland. Ten projects were awarded the inaugural Health Innova tion grants of $2,500 each to use in promoting good health at the community level. Many of the projects receiving grants focus on walking or cycling and offer the opportunity for resi dents to feel more connected to their communities. Maitland is focusing on adding marked walking paths through out the city, including one at the that will serve 14,000 employees and local residents. All three communities will klets, mini parks designed to link the communities together and cre ate healthy destinations, headed by the Masters Program in Civic Urbanism at Rollins College. Faith groups are also stepping up to create a guidebook to be used by various churches and re ligious organizations, which out lines healthy practices congrega tions can implement. The City of Winter Park is choosing to focus on two separate increase cycling in the city. During popular community events, Winter Park will continue to host its bike valet program, with improvements such as new bike racks and banners made pos sible by the grant. The program works like a car valet; bike owners check in their cycles with an attendant, knowing that their bikes are secure while they enjoy the festivities at events like the heavily attended Spring and Fall art festivals. The Winter Park Public Library is adding a new bike check out service with its grant, which will enable the Library to purchase seven cruiser style bikes and one tandem bike that patrons will be able to check out for up to a day at a time. Each bike checkout will in clude a helmet, lock, basket and light everything needed to spend the day cruising the city in style healthy style. The library is partnering with Winter Park bike shop Breakaway Bicycles, which will provide the bikes at cost along with mainte order. New library programs on cy cling and bike safety will also roll out with the new service launch. We are very excited to get started on this, said Ruth Ed wards, director of the Lifelong Learning Institute. We are start ing small, but we would love to be able to expand it in the future. It will be a great way to help people stay healthy. Dommerich Elementary is us ing their grant to add Walking Safe to their Walk and Roll pro gram to encourage safe walking and biking habits to and from school. Eatonville will use the grant to review the town plans with a goal of increasing the walkability of the community. Also in Eatonville, the Macedo nia Missionary Baptist church will be promoting their bike program with helmet giveaways. One of the most exciting new projects that will result from the grants is an app that is being de veloped by the UCF Institute of Government that will tie many of these programs together by offer ing residents a way to keep track of their healthy new habits and choices. UCF doctoral candidate Mi chelle Gardner, whose studies focus on community engagement through technology, will be devel oping the app. It will be based on a nonmonetary reward system for mak ing healthy choices. If you can get [users] to engage through play, people are much more likely to have fun with it, Gardner said. All the projects are scheduled to launch sometime this fall. It is my goal that we will see a synergy between the grant proj ects, Gardner said. Soon you should be able to check out a bike at the Winter Park Library and use the app to register that healthy choice and get credit for it.

Page 9 Our Whole Community, the on community health initia tives, has received a $2,500 grant from Healthy Central Florida to help develop a health ministry manual. According to the Tennessee Department of Health, a health ministry is a recognized team of people who sponsor regular edu cational events and experiences that promote well-being. The health team may also provide opportunities for the congrega tion to have their health concerns answered through surveys and meetings, educate the congrega tion on health through speakers, maintain a community garden, host an annual health fair, pro vide opportunities for physical activity, include health messages in bulletins, have a community nurse, and more. These are just a few projects that a healthy minis try may initiate. Lavon Williams, Our Whole Community (OWC) president/ CEO, said the manual will help churches develop ministries focused on mental and physical health. OWC was one of 10 organiza tions that received monies from Healthy Central Floridas inau gural Health Innovation Grants. Healthy Central Florida (HCF) is a community-based initiative created and supported by Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foundation to help local communities embrace health and wellness. Jill Hamilton Buss, HCF execu tive director, says the programs that were chosen have the best chance to create lasting change and the ability to impact those who are not already actively inclined. We congratulate the winners for participating in the critically important work of making our community a healthier, happier place to live, work, learn, wor ship and play, Buss said.

Page 10 W hen I was 22 years -old a handsome young doctor with piercing blue eyes put his hand gently on my knee and uttered words which would change my life forever: Surely you knew this was more than a cyst. His frank statement was my first clue that the softball -sized tumor which had been visibly growing for months was a rare and lethal form of cancer. My story is one of destruction, because much that I believed about myself was destroyed in that moment. My sense of security, many of my relationships, and I d like to leave you with more than my words. Id like to leave you talking over your own thoughts with the One who knows and cares about you more than I do: What is it that gives you security and significance in this life? What would you struggle to give up? If destruction is the theme of my story, what is the theme of your story? Do you have problems or questions you would like to see addressed in this space? Send them to us by using the submission link at ww.dearchristiancounselor.com and we will do our best to answer them here or online. my hopes of achievement and significance crumbled into uncertainty. I want to tell you these things by way of introduction so that you will know I have a deep understanding of darkness and struggle in the human heart. I am no stranger to anxiety, depression, physical trauma, marital problems, infertility or spiritual wandering. After a grim regimen of cancer treatments, including an amputation, I spent almost ten years in an angry wilderness of depression, avoiding the God I professed to know, lost in my own disappointment. God used the loving intervention of a faithful friend to help me crawl out of that cave into the life and light I know today, and now Id like to be that faithful friend to others. Eventually, that became my motivation to study counseling from a Biblical perspective at seminary. My healing wasnt quick or easy in truth, it still continues. And yet, the whole journey has been a kind of gift that has given me far more than it took away. So as we walk a little distance together, I want you to know that I wont hand you someone elses truth or some artificial answer that I just made up. Id love to hear from you, to hear about your life, your troubles and your lessons learned. And if I have something to give you, it will be a gift that God first worked deeply into my spirit through pain. You see, my story is one of destruction, but it wasnt me who was destroyed. Im still here, Im still married with two grown children, Im still in relationship with God and His people, and Im more alive than I was when I was 22. I had a little god I kept in my pocket which was supposed to give me everything I wanted. It was that inadequate idol which was destroyed, setting the stage for the God of the Bible to build an eternal foundation for me based upon a solid Rock. If I were to summarize my story, I would say that I traded my left leg and a dead idol for an unshakeable, eternal identity in Christ and it was A Good Trade. G od is at work writing your story as well as mine. If you have questions that I might be able to help with, you can submit them anonymously through www.dearchristiancounselor.com. This is a free service, and I would count it a privilege to accompany you on your journey to become all that God Is Creating You To Be. Struggling in Lfe? It Happens to Everyone. God said that it shouldn't surprise us and that we are not alone in our struggles. In His name we'd also like to offer our help. We are a group of licensed Christian therapists who will answer your counseling questions online and provide free resources to encourage your faith and strengthen your relationships.

MY STORY of Destruction and Unending Love by Louise Holzhauer Meet the Author & Our Counselor OurLife Today Counseling A fter recovering from cancer, Louise raised two children with her husband, Greg, and then returned to school at Reformed Theological Seminary where she earned a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies and one in Counseling. While there she interned with VITAS Hospice, The Women's Refuge of Vero Beach and as a volunteer chaplain at a local nursing care center. Since 2009 she has served as Member Care Counselor at Orangewood Church in Maitland and maintains office hours at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Orlando. She also enjoys writing and speaking occasionally at women's events in the Central Florida area. She is the wife of a church elder and the proud mother of two adult children. Her other interests include mission work, prayer, good books and friends. Louise Holzhauer, M.A Licensed Mental Health Counselor OurLife Today July 2013 OurLife Today Did you know that the average American household spends about $5,000 each year at the grocery store? But according to a USDA Healthy Eating Index report, Americans on average are only getting 59 percent of the vegetable and fruit recommendations daily. So is it possible to eat healthy on a budget? On Wednesday, July 10, Winter Park Memorial Hospital and Work Well Winter Park hosted Sherri Flynt with Florida Hos pitals Center for Nutritional Excellence to participate in the Health Education Series. During the lunch and learn, Sherri shared that contrary to popular belief, it is possible to eat healthier and spend less on food. Healthy eating basics Its important to most. ChooseMyPlate.gov is a great resource to see what your meal plate should look like. Try to eat more vegetables, fruit, whole grains and low fat dairy. Reduce your consump sugars. Myth buster The USDA released a study that compared the average price of food as well as portion size. In the different food groups, it was found that contrary to what most people think, many healthy foods are no more expensive than junk food. Plan Planning meals for the week can save you time, and also money. Studies have found that the American family wastes about 25 percent of their food budget. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a strategy for leftover food so it wont end up in the trash. Try this instead: Plan meals for the week so you can make the most of the food you have. online. Dont forget to make a grocery list, check for sales and coupons, and ask about the reward card at your local grocery store. A few small steps can go a long way. Purchase Weve all had impulse buys here and there but when it comes to mak ing purchases, stick to your grocery list! Buy groceries when youre not hungry, shop the perimeter of the store, buy in bulk, purchase fruits and vegetables when in season, and dont forget to compare unit prices. Doing money! Prepare The preparation phase can take some extra time, but thats why its important to plan. Try to pre-cook on days when you have time. Make double batches and freeze in meal-sized containers or use leftovers in meals in the next day or so. You can even buy items in bulk and divide them into smaller containers. Combat convenience with a plan; your pocketbook will be happier (and larger!). For additional lifestyle tips to sup port a healthy mind, body and spirit, visit 303-DOCS (3627).

Page 11 In homes throughout Central sistants and home health aides tenderly care for those who need help. They are the lifelines for countless families. They provide the help that a sick, weak, recover ing or disabled person may need for any and all of those daily tasks that are part of daily living: getting out of bed, walking, brushing teeth, shower ing, getting dressed, combing hair, eating, using the restroom, managing medications, laundry, and more. These activities of daily living require physical and mental capabilities many of us take for granted. For people with limitations, daily living requires the help of another person. Overwhelmingly, Floridians say they want to stay at home, with help if needed, rather than live in a facility. Who are these quiet heroes of help and what preparation do they have for the challenges of the work? Certi typically take a course, such as the program offered by Winter Park Tech or several other local schools. They must pass a written a background check, and main tain continuing education credits. CNAs are regulated by the Florida Board of Nursing, and the state maintains a health license website for consumers to review the license status of a CNA and other health care providers. The state of Florida does not license or certify home health aides (HHAs), but it does license home health agencies that hire HHAs. HHAs have completed 40 hours of training or a com petency evaluation given by the home health agency that has hired them. The agencies verify and conduct background checks on their staff. A query of health care.gov/compare can show how local home health agencies that provide Medicare services mea sure up in quality. Nursing registries, licensed by the state, also connect caregivers with families needing care. Reg istries are more like brokers; the CNAs are independent contrac tors. Registries check credentials but do not provide other over sight. The agency does not pay workers compensation insurance or taxes. CNAs that contract with a registry are sometimes called 1099 employees, because the agency issues 1099 tax forms at the end of the year. The work can be hard. The needs of patients can be complex and can change over time. Jobs come and go as the patients health status changes. The best CNAs see giving such help as more than a job it is a calling, rewarding profession. They know they make a difference in the lives of others. Families depend on them for their caring. It is the best job in the world. I love what I do, says Rose Peart, CNA and owner of RoseWayne Health Services, which cares for seniors in our community. She adds, A good CNA is not only knowl edgeable and reliable, but also and medically inquisitive. Physicians, nurse practitio ners, physician associates and therapists are part of the interprofessional health team, but the CNAs are the health providers with the patient day after day. They are the ones that implement the treatment plans, observe daily changes, and provide for the patient. The need for CNAs will likely grow 20 percent in the next 10 years. Will we have enough caregivers? Maitland resident Nancy Rudner Lugo is a nurse practitioner and president of Health Action, offering workplace health consulting and nurse coaching.

Page 13 Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives Louis Roney Play On! Which lies to consider Something for nothing Its becoming clearer that our job as American citizens is to track which lies to pay attention to. This is particularly challenging as the deceptions multiply at every level of American governance. One of the biggest lies perpetrated in American politics today combines Republicans have in my lifetime claimed proud ownership of both. They babble on about how they keep America strong and our many enemies at bay. They evoke the At the same time Republicans claim that, probity, that they care about the future of recklessness are strictly the purview of those feckless Democrats. Lets examine one issue that clearly illustrates Republican hypocrisy (and tragedy for America): our recent war in Iraq. First, recall the outraged Republican response to the 2012 Benghazi attack. Re publicans immediately attacked Obama for mishandling the violence. They launched numerous congressional in vestigations, so outraged and indignant were Republicans over the loss of four Americans. Republicans still rail and wail over that treacherous Benghazi deception perpetrated by the Obama administration. Really? Republicans are so outraged Compared to what? is all I ask. Remem ber, my fellow citizen, keep your eye on which lie(s) to pay attention to. Where are the House of Representa tives investigations into the profound tragedy of Iraq and Afghanistan? Seri ously, Republicans will invest time and treasure investigating the Benghazi incident where four Americans unfor tunately died serving America? Where is the Republican outrage over the 4,488 American military casualties in Iraq? Where? Lets review the numbers so we un derstand the scope of this tragedy for our nation. Everyone concedes today (even some Republicans, really) that we went to war in Iraq on fabricated evidence. We engaged in war for no legitimate reason. The parents and relatives of the 4,488 servicemen and women lost their loved for mistakes in judgment. Investigations anyone? Demotions? Firings? Prison? Three thousand four hundred and twenty four more servicemen died in combat after President Bush childishly announced Mission Accomplished on May 1, 2003. You recall that patriotic mo USS Abraham Lincoln and stood cowboylike, proudly beaming under that ridicu lous banner that this was the end of major combat operations. Another 3,424 service men died after that absurd assessment. Approximately 35,000 servicemen were wounded. This does not include the estimated hundreds of thousands of treat ment claims anticipated over the next 40 years for PTSD, depression and disability. According to Alan Zarembo reporting in the March 29, 2013 edition of the Los Angeles Times, The wars in Iraq and Af ghanistan will ultimately cost between $4 trillion and $6 trillion, with medical care for decades to come, according to a new analysis. The bill to taxpayers so far has been $2 trillion, plus $260 billion in inter est on the resulting debt. By comparison, the current federal budget is $3.8 trillion. Republicans (with spineless Democrat acceptance) engaged America in an im moral war, killing and wounding tens of thousands. Republicans put the war on the national credit card. Republicans, by some estimates, put every American fam ily on the hook for $75,000 of that bill. Republicans lose sleep over Benghazi but sweep Iraq under the rug. Repub licans, today, cut food stamp programs ahead, retch now. Follow the deception, folks. Simply follow the hypocrisy. Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.US When I was a kid, I was expected to be a Southern Gentleman. I stood when elders entered the room. I helped ladies with their chairs at the dinner table and I helped them in and out of automobiles. When addressing my elders I always said Yes maam, or Yes sir and I always told the truth. Most of my friends were raised the same way. old southern customs, and I notice a smile of surprise on faces of those who recog nize such an archaic upbringing. Astute savants of American history must often be surprised when they consider the actual origins of Ameri can Liberalism and Conservatism. My God!, it was nobody else but original Republican, Lincoln, who freed the slaves, wasnt it? And yet how many of the descendants of those freed slaves are today Republicans? They seem to follow standards in the Democratic line as though Democrats were, in truth, their pied pipers of Hamlin who piped them to freedom. They seem to have rejected their sacred antecedents. How would Lincoln get along with Obama-would they both be feeding from the same politi to hold the Union together, and he might be a little chagrined at whats left of that Union today. I think that those Southerners who ma tured into Southern Conservative Demo crats embodied the spirit of Lincolnism more than did the Liberals that FDRs later Democrats espoused. The dole and the give-away were not demanded in the old Dixie Conservative grab-bag. Change may be the way of life as the French say but change surely does not always follow a logical order. In 1933, at age 12, I did not like FDR, principles that I had been taught to dis trust as a child. I understood even then that nothing worthwhile is supposed to be parceled out to those who do not put in a full measure of effort in return. Pretty soon FDR had established unemployment, and people were be ing paid for doing nothing. This idea caught on merrily, and soon we had an Army of unemployed who stood in line to collect money from Uncle Sam. A big family on unemployment could collect enough so that working could seem a stupid alternative indeed, and, in some cases, salaries needed to rise in order to get the well-paid unemployed to take a job at all. Getting something for nothing became for attraction of American political philosophy, and candidates assured themselves of millions of votes simply by offering pay for no work a ploy which is so productive it is not likely to be overthrown when dealing with future problems. FDRs give-away New Deal disas can national character. We were headed nowhere but downward when one of those terrible things happened which brings simultaneous good with it: On December 7, 1941, the Japanese mounted a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. We soon had 10 million in uniform and were fully employed in factories to beat the Japa nese, and later, the Germans. After the war, American ex-GIs wel the GI Bill for additional education, VA housing, and off we went Presently, many of us think that our rights still include government assis tance with: education, health care, child care, housing, mortgages, food, jobs, etc. Lets be fair cradle to grave help what a grand idea! Dont work, dont think, just exist the government will take care of you just vote the right way What a wonderful life! About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) FDRs give-away New Deal disastrously attenuated the fiber of the American national character. Every year, thousands of Americans get sick with recre ational water illnesses (RWIs), which are caused by germs found in places where we swim. The Department of Health in Orange and Seminole Counties are highlighting the importance of preventing these illnesses by emphasizing healthy swimming behaviors. These RWIs are caused by germs spread by swallowing, breathing in mists or aerosols, or having contact with contami nated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers or oceans. RWIs can also be caused by chemicals in the water or chemicals that evaporate from the water and cause indoor air quality problems. Diarrhea is the most common route of infection for RWI, and it is often caused by germs like Crypto (short for Cryptosporidium), Giardia, norovirus, Shigella, and E. coli O157:H7. Other routes of infec tion for common RWIs include skin, ear, respiratory, eye, neuro logic, and wound infections. Children, pregnant women, and people with weakened im mune systems are most at risk for RWIs, said Dr. Kevin Sherin, Director of the Department of Health in Orange County. Any one who is ill should also avoid swimming until their symptoms have passed. Chlorine and other pool wa ter treatments dont kill germs in stantly, and just one diarrheal in cident can release enough germs into the water that swallowing a mouthful can cause diarrhea lasting up to 2 weeks, said for the Department of Health in Seminole County. We all share the water we swim in, and we each need to do our part to keep ourselves, our families, and our friends healthy. To help protect yourself and other swimmers from germs, here are a few simple and effective steps all swimmers can take each time we swim: Dont swim when you have diarrhea. Shower with soap before you start swimming. Take a rinse shower before you get back into the water. Take bathroom breaks every 60 minutes. Wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Check the chlorine and pH levels before getting into the wa ter. Proper chlorine (1 mg/L or parts per million [ppm]) and pH (7.2.8) levels maximize germkilling power. Most superstores, hardware stores, and pool supply stores sell pool test strips. Dont swallow the water you swim in. Parents of young children should take a few extra steps: Take children on bathroom breaks every 60 minutes or check diapers every 30 minutes. Change diapers in the bath room or diaper-changing area and not at poolside where germs can rinse into the water. Remember Think Healthy. Swim Healthy. Be Healthy!

The museums proposed re location plan awaits approval from Capen House property own ers John and Betsy Pokorny, and would involve splitting the home barge to the museum grounds. Once reassembled, the Capen House would be preserved as a historic location for events and ofon raising at least $650,000 by the end of this year. A letter of intent regarding the relocation was sent off to the Po kornys earlier this month. Debbie Komanski, executive director of the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden, said the cou ple responded positively to the project, and she remains hopeful that the museum will succeed in saving the house.

A transportation bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott last month has left municipalities in charge of hearing appeals for red light camera citations as of July 1, leaving cities on their own to de termine a city hearing process. Up until that date, anyone who wanted to appeal their citation went to court and paid a fee of $137.

Page 2 asked to approve an increase of that fee of $250 to pay for the ad ministrative costs of the new red nearly double the cost of the pre vious fee. When I saw we were going to charge a $250 fee to collect $158, I actually was very troubled by that, said Mayor Ken Bradley shortly after pulling the item from the consent agenda for discussion. The city was asked to set the fee before determining plans for its yet-to-be-drafted public hear ing system, which Mayor Bradley pointed out seemed like a back ward order of operations. But after debate, the City Commission chose to keep the fee at $137, and requested a six-month evaluation of the process and its costs to see if the fee needed to increase. Commissioner Carolyn Cooper believed that a higher fee to con test a citation would create even further animosity toward the red introduced to the city in 2011. There was a lot of opposition to red light cameras and the leg islature, Cooper said. I dont more opposition. Winter Park Police records over the past three months show that in Winter Park theres between 1,400 and 1,600 red light violations each month. Records also show that between 15 and 20 percent of violators in Winter Park contest their citations. These numbers raise questions about how helpful the cameras are to begin with, Bradley said. Red light running, to me, is a safety issue, Bradley said. Are we safer because of these red light cameras? Thats one thing that we need to look at. People have accused me well youre just doing this to make money for the city. Not at all. This is not the process that were using to make money, this is the process that were trying to use to enforce our laws and to make it a safer driving environment. The new city hearing system raised concerns, but the change from court hearings to city hear ings could make it easier for resi dents to appeal a citation, Winter Park Police Chief Brett Railey said. I feel that the hearing process will be much less intimidating for a violator should they desire to contest a violation, Railey said. The hearing process is less formal than the process in place until July 1 of this year and as navigate through the system. Railey noted during the meet ing that a hearing system through the city would mean that citations would not go on the license of a violator, keeping insurance costs down in the long-term. As for the costs of the new hearing system, the six-month evaluation will have to wait until camera citation hearing takes place, Railey said. I think theres another princi ple at play, and that is our citizens have a right be heard in court, Bradley said. If we charge that price so much, I think that we havent just taxed without representation, tion, which frankly is even more problematic to me. City Commissioners will work to establish the hearing process for the red light camera appeals during the upcoming Commis sion meeting on July 22.

But in case FDOT cant move the project west, the Maitland City Council agreed on two alter native ideas in a special meeting July 15. FDOT has agreed to study and implement either of the ideas ies can be completed, analyzed and approved by FDOTs Sept. 1 deadline. Otherwise, the addi tional desired construction costs will fall back on Maitland. It seems like you and, con sequently, us are getting put be tween a rock and a hard place by DOT, Druid Isles resident Fred Sells said, encouraging the Council to do whats best and right for Maitland. The Council unanimously and preferred option challenges FDOT to come up with a new traf ramp to stay open, possibly by extending it eastward to eliminate weaving issues. The second backup option proposes opening a one-way northbound connection from Sandspur Road to Maitland Boulevard from Concourse Park way, which borders Orangewood Christian School and Maitland Concourse South. A third option drafted by the citys Transportation Advisory Board, which proposed allow Parkway onto Sandspur Road, was thrown out after residents argued future development in the have longstanding impacts on the residential street. Its a deal breaker for us, for mer mayor Doug Kinson, a Mait land Woods resident, said. We members echoed resident senti ments that the city needs to push FDOT toward keeping existing keeping up the integrity of Mait lands neighborhoods. [FDOTs] job is to control borhoods, Councilman John Lowndes said, reiterating a resi dent who spoke earlier. That, he said, remains in the citys hands now and through the planning and construction processes.RED LIGHT | Mayor objects to doubling fee for fighting fines CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGEI-4 | Project may worsen Maitland traffic CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERCAPEN | Press conference set for Aug. 8 CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGEhonor and a privilege to receive this home thats part of the Winter Park past and allow it to become a permanent historical location, Komanski said.

But the Leesburg Lightning (17-11) wont let them get away so easily. As of the start of the week both teams were on their longest winning streaks of the season at the same time, adding some drama to the Florida Collegiate Summer And in the fracas even the College Park Freedom (8-20) have begun to come around, win ning two straight and coming within two games of the DeLand Suns (10-17), who have rapidly dropped toward the bottom of the league. In their wild seven-win tear the Dawgs (19-9) have had some strange luck in their scheduling, putting them up against the for merly league-leading Orlando Monarchs (16-11) and longtime rival Sanford River Rats (13-15) in all of those games. In their most recent win against Orlando on July 15, it wasnt even close. Four Dawgs shared the RBI duties, though grabbed the spotlight, blasting two doubles in the game. But it wasnt all about extra bases from the batters box; three of the Dawgs took the small ball route and picked up bases on the run, with Daniel Sweet swiping his 15th bag of the season. Brett Nizamoff handled the Monarchs easily, with six strikeouts in six innings. The Dawgs played a pair at press time, but will return to the diamond at home at 7 p.m. July 18 against the Freedom. Sanford hosts DeLand at 7 p.m. the same night at Sanford Memorial Sta dium.

Duda to the Board. David serves as President and Chief Executive Ocer of A. Duda & Sons, Inc., an Oviedo-based company founded in 1926 by Slovakian immigrant Andrew Duda. Much like the bank itself, A. Duda & Sons, Inc. was founded with agricultural roots but has evolved over the years into a multi-faceted operation. Today, the company operates throughout the United States not only as a fresh vegetable grower but also as a diversied land company with a wide array of agribusiness and real estate operations. David Duda represents the fourth generation within his family to serve as its President, having joined the company in 1987 as a Business and Systems Analyst. In 2001, Duda was promoted to Chief Financial Ocer and, prior to being named President in 2009 and CEO in 2010, served as Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Ocer. A native of Oviedo, David earned his Master of Business Administration degree in Finance, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Food and Resource Economics, both from the University of Florida. He is a member of the Florida Council of 100 and a past member of the Central Florida Chapter of Financial Executives International. He has served as Chair of the External Advisory Committee for Food & Resource Economics at the University of Floridas College of Agriculture and also served on the Board of Supervisors of the Viera East Community Development District. He is a member of St. Lukes Lutheran Church, and has served as Congregational Vice President and President. In addition, David was a Board member of Orlando Lutheran Academy, including service as Chairman from 2008 until 2010. David and his wife, Carolyn, have three children: Steven, Natalie and Ellen. He counts among his hobbies hunting, shing, traveling and gardening. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to welcome David to our leadership team, Lee said. His long tenure as an Oviedo businessman and his understanding of this community and region are exceptional. Its dicult to miss the parallels between Citizens Bank of Florida and A. Duda & Sons, Inc., Lee continued. We both are proud to call Oviedo home and have our roots in agriculture. As the years have passed, we have evolved as a comprehensive, full-service community bank while A. Duda & Sons has diversied and grown across the nation. We hold both David and his company in very high regard, and our bank will be the beneciary of his experience and insights for years to come.

DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

King Features Weekly ServiceMarch 2-8, 2009 RB DESIGN By Samantha MazzottaReusing Wood for FlooringQ:Ive been watching some home-improvement shows on television lately that advocate greenbuilding techniques, including reusing wood from other structures for a homes wood flooring,rather than buying new. What do you think about this trend,and how do I go about doing this? Larry in Tempe,Ariz.A:Recycled wood flooring is a good trend,in my opinion, because rather than chopping down live trees to supply the hardwood for your floor,wood from many types of disused structures or other sources of salvaged lumber can be remilled to give it a second life. There is some concern that the current stock of highquality salvaged wood will run out eventually,but no timetable has been given for that. Recycled hardwood is often of better quality than new hardwoods. Its been curing for many years,resulting in a tighter grain and more stability. Also, much of the current stock of recycled wood originally came from oldgrowth forests,most of which either no longer exist or are protected,and so youre getting high-quality denseness and stability that most new woods cant match. One thing it is not,however,is cheap. Recycled hardwood costs much more than new (Toolbase Services estimates that it runs about $5.75 to $11 per square foot,while new oak flooring runs about $3 per square foot). Recycled wood also must be installed by a professional. Despite the cost,recycled wood tends to be beautiful and durable and a nice conversation piece at parties. If youre interested in having it installed, many flooring contractors are able to procure and install recycled wood. You should check with more than one contractor,though,get estimates,and ideally work with someone who specializes in recycled wood-flooring installation.

Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.2009 King Features Synd.,Inc.All types of wood floors need the same type of care: Wipe up liquid spills immediately, dont use harsh cleaners or oil soaps,and sweep,dust mop or vacuum regularly to prevent grit from dulling the finish.Dogs Help Vets Cope With PTSDTheres new ammo in the hunt for a fix for post-traumatic stress disorder. For some veterans,the answers lie in dogs. But not just any dogs. Specially trained dogs are being given to some veterans suffering from PTSD,and in many cases,its working. When out in public,the dogspresence invites social conversation,yet they will place themselves physically between someone approaching and the veteran,who is likely to still be leery of contact. With the dogs,veterans find that theyre able to leave home without fear and can slowly transition to a more normal life. Many of the dogs are trained in prisons in the Puppies Behind Bars program,where they spend a year with specially trained prisoners [www.puppiesbehindbars.com]. To turn the tables a bit,a group called Paws for Purple Hearts [www.assistancedog.org] allows veterans with PTSD to become trainers for dogs that will assist veterans with physical disabilities. Run by Bergin University in California,the Paws program gives a needed sense of purpose to veterans with PTSD,as well as the grounding and self-worth that come from knowing theyre working to help someone else. In this case its a veteran with physical disabilities. For more information,call PPH at 707545-3647 ext. 28. Steps also are being taken to head PTSD off at the pass,again using dogs. Combat Stress Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan are shipped over with therapy dogs that quickly become popular with service personnel. The dogs serve,among other things,as icebreakers and stress relievers,inviting conversations that might otherwise not take place. For a real treat,do an Internet search for Boe and Budge,two therapy dogs that were sent to Iraq with a stress team. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service,P.O.

Dull Chest Pain Disturbs SleepDEAR DR. DONOHUE: Im in my 60s and never had a major illness. I take no medicines. During the past three months, I have been wakened from sleep with a dull pain in the center of my chest. My husband told me to take Mylanta. I did, and got instant relief. What do you think of this pain? V.P. ANSWER: Pain that wakens a per son from sleep must be taken seriously and ought to be reported to the family doctor. However, the response you got from taking Mylanta (an antacid) makes me think of GERD gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as heartburn. Stomach acid and digestive juices spurt into the esophagus, a structure not equipped to deal with them like the stomach can. If this nighttime pain of yours keeps coming back, put 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed to keep stomach juices in the stomach when you lie down. My first statement about nighttime pain has to be observed. You need to see the family doctor to be certain this is heartburn and not one of the many other serious possibilities. The booklet on coronary artery disease, another cause of chest pain, details its signs and symptoms. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue No. 101, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE: I had two cousins, sisters who died of pancreatic cancer less than a year apart. One was two years older than the other. They grew up and lived in the same Midwestern town. I am concerned about their other sister. Could the disease run in the fam ily? Their mother died of cancer at the age of 40, but we dont know what type of cancer. Anon. ANSWER: Two sisters dying of pancreatic cancer makes you sit up and take notice. If a brother, sister or parent had pancreatic cancer, the risk of another family member coming down with it increases by 18 times the risk for a person without such a family history. Pancreatic cancer most often appears between the ages of 65 and 84. Aging, smoking and chronic inflammation of the gland are other factors involved in its genesis. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a very active 45-year-old female dance teacher with a surprising white blood count of 2,500. My weight and diet are excellent. I stay away from sugar. I do not feel sick. What can I take to raise my white blood count? S. ANSWER: Youre the second per son in the past three weeks who is concerned about a low white blood count. The normal count is 4,500 to 10,000. The chief role of white blood cells is to battle attacking viruses and bacteria. You have no symptoms from your lower-than-normal count. Your body defenses are in fine shape. Your count might be normal for you. It bears watching. Nothing you take can raise the count. In your case, it doesnt need to be raised. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

For Behers the journey to his position at Cornerstone began when he was age 10. My dad died and our family received zero care, says Behers. I was told brave boys dont cry and that process of how I had to work through the grief developed into a natural anity to help others who are facing the loss of a loved one or their own end-of-life. Behers is sharing his years of experience with his team by compiling a handbook, Toward Excellence in Spiritual Care, which focuses on techniques for providing compassionate spiritual care.

Page 8 Free bikes, more parks and a web of walking paths will help some Central Florida cities get healthier in the next few months. Healthy Central Florida, a part nership between Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foun dation, recently awarded $25,000 in grants to community partners who are ready to move forward with projects aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles in Winter Park, Eatonville and Maitland. Ten projects were awarded the inaugural Health Innova tion grants of $2,500 each to use in promoting good health at the community level. Many of the projects receiving grants focus on walking or cycling and offer the opportunity for resi dents to feel more connected to their communities. Maitland is focusing on adding marked walking paths through out the city, including one at the that will serve 14,000 employees and local residents. All three communities will klets, mini parks designed to link the communities together and cre ate healthy destinations, headed by the Masters Program in Civic Urbanism at Rollins College. Faith groups are also stepping up to create a guidebook to be used by various churches and re ligious organizations, which out lines healthy practices congrega tions can implement. The City of Winter Park is choosing to focus on two separate increase cycling in the city. During popular community events, Winter Park will continue to host its bike valet program, with improvements such as new bike racks and banners made pos sible by the grant. The program works like a car valet; bike owners check in their cycles with an attendant, knowing that their bikes are secure while they enjoy the festivities at events like the heavily attended Spring and Fall art festivals. The Winter Park Public Library is adding a new bike check out service with its grant, which will enable the Library to purchase seven cruiser style bikes and one tandem bike that patrons will be able to check out for up to a day at a time. Each bike checkout will in clude a helmet, lock, basket and light everything needed to spend the day cruising the city in style healthy style. The library is partnering with Winter Park bike shop Breakaway Bicycles, which will provide the bikes at cost along with mainte order. New library programs on cycling and bike safety will also roll out with the new service launch. We are very excited to get started on this, said Ruth Ed wards, director of the Lifelong Learning Institute. We are start ing small, but we would love to be able to expand it in the future. It will be a great way to help people stay healthy. Dommerich Elementary is using their grant to add Walking Safe to their Walk and Roll pro gram to encourage safe walking and biking habits to and from school. Eatonville will use the grant to review the town plans with a goal of increasing the walkability of the community. Also in Eatonville, the Macedo nia Missionary Baptist church will be promoting their bike program with helmet giveaways. One of the most exciting new projects that will result from the grants is an app that is being de veloped by the UCF Institute of Government that will tie many of these programs together by offer ing residents a way to keep track of their healthy new habits and choices. UCF doctoral candidate Mi chelle Gardner, whose studies focus on community engagement through technology, will be developing the app. It will be based on a nonmonetary reward system for mak ing healthy choices. If you can get [users] to engage through play, people are much more likely to have fun with it, Gardner said. All the projects are scheduled to launch sometime this fall. It is my goal that we will see a synergy between the grant proj ects, Gardner said. Soon you should be able to check out a bike at the Winter Park Library and use the app to register that healthy choice and get credit for it.PHOTO COURTESY OF BUTCH MARGRAF, CITY OF WINTER PARKThe Winter Park bike valet program encourages visitors to ride bikes to city events.

Page 9 Our Whole Community, the on community health initiatives, has received a $2,500 grant from Healthy Central Florida to help develop a health ministry manual. According to the Tennessee Department of Health, a health ministry is a recognized team of people who sponsor regular educational events and experiences that promote well-being. The health team may also provide opportunities for the congrega tion to have their health concerns answered through surveys and meetings, educate the congrega tion on health through speakers, maintain a community garden, host an annual health fair, pro vide opportunities for physical activity, include health messages in bulletins, have a community nurse, and more. These are just a few projects that a healthy minis try may initiate. Lavon Williams, Our Whole Community (OWC) president/ CEO, said the manual will help churches develop ministries focused on mental and physical health. OWC was one of 10 organizations that received monies from Healthy Central Floridas inaugural Health Innovation Grants. Healthy Central Florida (HCF) is a community-based initiative created and supported by Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foundation to help local communities embrace health and wellness. Jill Hamilton Buss, HCF executive director, says the programs that were chosen have the best chance to create lasting change and the ability to impact those who are not already actively inclined. We congratulate the winners for participating in the critically important work of making our community a healthier, happier place to live, work, learn, wor ship and play, Buss said.

Page 10 W hen I was 22 years -old a handsome young doctor with piercing blue eyes put his hand gently on my knee and uttered words which would change my life forever: Surely you knew this was more than a cyst. His frank statement was my first clue that the softball -sized tumor which had been visibly growing for months was a rare and lethal form of cancer. My story is one of destruction, because much that I believed about myself was destroyed in that moment. My sense of security, many of my relationships, and I d like to leave you with more than my words. Id like to leave you talking over your own thoughts with the One who knows and cares about you more than I do: What is it that gives you security and significance in this life? What would you struggle to give up? If destruction is the theme of my story, what is the theme of your story? Do you have problems or questions you would like to see addressed in this space? Send them to us by using the submission link at ww.dearchristiancounselor.com and we will do our best to answer them here or online. my hopes of achievement and significance crumbled into uncertainty. I want to tell you these things by way of introduction so that you will know I have a deep understanding of darkness and struggle in the human heart. I am no stranger to anxiety, depression, physical trauma, marital problems, infertility or spiritual wandering. After a grim regimen of cancer treatments, including an amputation, I spent almost ten years in an angry wilderness of depression, avoiding the God I professed to know, lost in my own disappointment. God used the loving intervention of a faithful friend to help me crawl out of that cave into the life and light I know today, and now Id like to be that faithful friend to others. Eventually, that became my motivation to study counseling from a Biblical perspective at seminary. My healing wasnt quick or easy in truth, it still continues. And yet, the whole journey has been a kind of gift that has given me far more than it took away. So as we walk a little distance together, I want you to know that I wont hand you someone elses truth or some artificial answer that I just made up. Id love to hear from you, to hear about your life, your troubles and your lessons learned. And if I have something to give you, it will be a gift that God first worked deeply into my spirit through pain. You see, my story is one of destruction, but it wasnt me who was destroyed. Im still here, Im still married with two grown children, Im still in relationship with God and His people, and Im more alive than I was when I was 22. I had a little god I kept in my pocket which was supposed to give me everything I wanted. It was that inadequate idol which was destroyed, setting the stage for the God of the Bible to build an eternal foundation for me based upon a solid Rock. If I were to summarize my story, I would say that I traded my left leg and a dead idol for an unshakeable, eternal identity in Christ and it was A Good Trade. G od is at work writing your story as well as mine. If you have questions that I might be able to help with, you can submit them anonymously through www.dearchristiancounselor.com. This is a free service, and I would count it a privilege to accompany you on your journey to become all that God Is Creating You To Be. Struggling in Lfe? It Happens to Everyone. God said that it shouldn't surprise us and that we are not alone in our struggles. In His name we'd also like to offer our help. We are a group of licensed Christian therapists who will answer your counseling questions online and provide free resources to encourage your faith and strengthen your relationships.

MY STORY of Destruction and Unending Love by Louise Holzhauer Meet the Author & Our Counselor OurLife Today Counseling A fter recovering from cancer, Louise raised two children with her husband, Greg, and then returned to school at Reformed Theological Seminary where she earned a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies and one in Counseling. While there she interned with VITAS Hospice, The Women's Refuge of Vero Beach and as a volunteer chaplain at a local nursing care center. Since 2009 she has served as Member Care Counselor at Orangewood Church in Maitland and maintains office hours at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Orlando. She also enjoys writing and speaking occasionally at women's events in the Central Florida area. She is the wife of a church elder and the proud mother of two adult children. Her other interests include mission work, prayer, good books and friends. Louise Holzhauer, M.A Licensed Mental Health Counselor OurLife Today July 2013 OurLife Today Did you know that the average American household spends about $5,000 each year at the grocery store? But according to a USDA Healthy Eating Index report, Americans on average are only getting 59 percent of the vegetable and fruit recommendations daily. So is it possible to eat healthy on a budget? On Wednesday, July 10, Winter Park Memorial Hospital and Work Well Winter Park hosted Sherri Flynt with Florida Hospitals Center for Nutritional Excellence to participate in the Health Education Series. During the lunch and learn, Sherri shared that contrary to popular belief, it is possible to eat healthier and spend less on food. Healthy eating basics Its important to most. ChooseMyPlate.gov is a great resource to see what your meal plate should look like. Try to eat more vegetables, fruit, whole grains and low fat dairy. Reduce your consump sugars. Myth buster The USDA released a study that compared the average price of food as well as portion size. In the different food groups, it was found that contrary to what most people think, many healthy foods are no more expensive than junk food. Plan Planning meals for the week can save you time, and also money. Studies have found that the American family wastes about 25 percent of their food budget. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a strategy for leftover food so it wont end up in the trash. Try this instead: Plan meals for the week so you can make the most of the food you have. online. Dont forget to make a grocery list, check for sales and coupons, and ask about the reward card at your local grocery store. A few small steps can go a long way. Purchase Weve all had impulse buys here and there but when it comes to mak ing purchases, stick to your grocery list! Buy groceries when youre not hungry, shop the perimeter of the store, buy in bulk, purchase fruits and vegetables when in season, and dont forget to compare unit prices. Doing money! Prepare The preparation phase can take some extra time, but thats why its important to plan. Try to pre-cook on days when you have time. Make double batches and freeze in meal-sized containers or use leftovers in meals in the next day or so. You can even buy items in bulk and divide them into smaller containers. Combat convenience with a plan; your pocketbook will be happier (and larger!).

Page 11 In homes throughout Central sistants and home health aides tenderly care for those who need help. They are the lifelines for countless families. They provide the help that a sick, weak, recover ing or disabled person may need for any and all of those daily tasks that are part of daily living: getting out of bed, walking, brushing teeth, shower ing, getting dressed, combing hair, eating, using the restroom, managing medications, laundry, and more. These activities of daily living require physical and mental capabilities many of us take for granted. For people with limitations, daily living requires the help of another person. Overwhelmingly, Floridians say they want to stay at home, with help if needed, rather than live in a facility. Who are these quiet heroes of help and what preparation do they have for the challenges of the work? Certitypically take a course, such as the program offered by Winter Park Tech or several other local schools. They must pass a written a background check, and maintain continuing education credits. CNAs are regulated by the Florida Board of Nursing, and the state maintains a health license website for consumers to review the license status of a CNA and other health care providers. The state of Florida does not license or certify home health aides (HHAs), but it does license home health agencies that hire HHAs. HHAs have completed 40 hours of training or a competency evaluation given by the home health agency that has hired them. The agencies verify and conduct background checks on their staff. A query of health care.gov/compare can show how local home health agencies that provide Medicare services mea sure up in quality. Nursing registries, licensed by the state, also connect caregivers with families needing care. Registries are more like brokers; the CNAs are independent contractors. Registries check credentials but do not provide other over sight. The agency does not pay workers compensation insurance or taxes. CNAs that contract with a registry are sometimes called 1099 employees, because the agency issues 1099 tax forms at the end of the year. The work can be hard. The needs of patients can be complex and can change over time. Jobs come and go as the patients health status changes. The best CNAs see giving such help as more than a job it is a calling, rewarding profession. They know they make a difference in the lives of others. Families depend on them for their caring. It is the best job in the world. I love what I do, says Rose Peart, CNA and owner of RoseWayne Health Services, which cares for seniors in our community. She adds, A good CNA is not only knowledgeable and reliable, but also and medically inquisitive. Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician associates and therapists are part of the interprofessional health team, but the CNAs are the health providers with the patient day after day. They are the ones that implement the treatment plans, observe daily changes, and provide for the patient. The need for CNAs will likely grow 20 percent in the next 10 years.

Page 13 Opinions Chris Jepson PerspectivesLouis Roney Play On!Which lies to consider Something for nothingIts becoming clearer that our job as American citizens is to track which lies to pay attention to. This is particularly challenging as the deceptions multiply at every level of American governance. One of the biggest lies perpetrated in American politics today combines Republicans have in my lifetime claimed proud ownership of both. They babble on about how they keep America strong and our many enemies at bay. They evoke the At the same time Republicans claim that, probity, that they care about the future of recklessness are strictly the purview of those feckless Democrats. Lets examine one issue that clearly illustrates Republican hypocrisy (and tragedy for America): our recent war in Iraq. First, recall the outraged Republican response to the 2012 Benghazi attack. Re publicans immediately attacked Obama for mishandling the violence. They launched numerous congressional investigations, so outraged and indignant were Republicans over the loss of four Americans. Republicans still rail and wail over that treacherous Benghazi deception perpetrated by the Obama administration. Really? Republicans are so outraged Compared to what? is all I ask. Remem ber, my fellow citizen, keep your eye on which lie(s) to pay attention to. Where are the House of Representa tives investigations into the profound tragedy of Iraq and Afghanistan? Seriously, Republicans will invest time and treasure investigating the Benghazi incident where four Americans unfor tunately died serving America? Where is the Republican outrage over the 4,488 American military casualties in Iraq? Where? Lets review the numbers so we understand the scope of this tragedy for our nation. Everyone concedes today (even some Republicans, really) that we went to war in Iraq on fabricated evidence. We engaged in war for no legitimate reason. The parents and relatives of the 4,488 servicemen and women lost their loved for mistakes in judgment. Investigations anyone? Demotions? Firings? Prison? Three thousand four hundred and twenty four more servicemen died in combat after President Bush childishly announced Mission Accomplished on May 1, 2003. You recall that patriotic mo USS Abraham Lincoln and stood cowboylike, proudly beaming under that ridicu lous banner that this was the end of major combat operations. Another 3,424 servicemen died after that absurd assessment. Approximately 35,000 servicemen were wounded. This does not include the estimated hundreds of thousands of treatment claims anticipated over the next 40 years for PTSD, depression and disability. According to Alan Zarembo reporting in the March 29, 2013 edition of the Los Angeles Times, The wars in Iraq and Af ghanistan will ultimately cost between $4 trillion and $6 trillion, with medical care for decades to come, according to a new analysis. The bill to taxpayers so far has been $2 trillion, plus $260 billion in inter est on the resulting debt. By comparison, the current federal budget is $3.8 trillion. Republicans (with spineless Democrat acceptance) engaged America in an immoral war, killing and wounding tens of thousands. Republicans put the war on the national credit card. Republicans, by some estimates, put every American fam ily on the hook for $75,000 of that bill. Republicans lose sleep over Benghazi but sweep Iraq under the rug. Repub licans, today, cut food stamp programs ahead, retch now. Follow the deception, folks. Simply follow the hypocrisy.Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.USWhen I was a kid, I was expected to be a Southern Gentleman. I stood when elders entered the room. I helped ladies with their chairs at the dinner table and I helped them in and out of automobiles. When addressing my elders I always said Yes maam, or Yes sir and I always told the truth. Most of my friends were raised the same way. old southern customs, and I notice a smile of surprise on faces of those who recog nize such an archaic upbringing. Astute savants of American history must often be surprised when they consider the actual origins of American Liberalism and Conservatism. My God!, it was nobody else but original Republican, Lincoln, who freed the slaves, wasnt it? And yet how many of the descendants of those freed slaves are today Republicans? They seem to follow standards in the Democratic line as though Democrats were, in truth, their pied pipers of Hamlin who piped them to freedom. They seem to have rejected their sacred antecedents. How would Lincoln get along with Obama-would they both be feeding from the same politi to hold the Union together, and he might be a little chagrined at whats left of that Union today. I think that those Southerners who matured into Southern Conservative Democrats embodied the spirit of Lincolnism more than did the Liberals that FDRs later Democrats espoused. The dole and the give-away were not demanded in the old Dixie Conservative grab-bag. Change may be the way of life as the French say but change surely does not always follow a logical order. In 1933, at age 12, I did not like FDR, principles that I had been taught to dis trust as a child. I understood even then that nothing worthwhile is supposed to be parceled out to those who do not put in a full measure of effort in return. Pretty soon FDR had established unemployment, and people were be ing paid for doing nothing. This idea caught on merrily, and soon we had an Army of unemployed who stood in line to collect money from Uncle Sam. A big family on unemployment could collect enough so that working could seem a stupid alternative indeed, and, in some cases, salaries needed to rise in order to get the well-paid unemployed to take a job at all. Getting something for nothing became for attraction of American political philosophy, and candidates assured themselves of millions of votes simply by offering pay for no work a ploy which is so productive it is not likely to be overthrown when dealing with future problems. FDRs give-away New Deal disas can national character. We were headed nowhere but downward when one of those terrible things happened which brings simultaneous good with it: On December 7, 1941, the Japanese mounted a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. We soon had 10 million in uniform and were fully employed in factories to beat the Japanese, and later, the Germans. After the war, American ex-GIs welthe GI Bill for additional education, VA housing, and off we went Presently, many of us think that our rights still include government assistance with: education, health care, child care, housing, mortgages, food, jobs, etc. Lets be fair cradle to grave help what a grand idea! Dont work, dont think, just exist the government will take care of you just vote the right way What a wonderful life! About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney)FDRs give-away New Deal disastrously attenuated the fiber of the American national character. Every year, thousands of Americans get sick with recreational water illnesses (RWIs), which are caused by germs found in places where we swim. The Department of Health in Orange and Seminole Counties are highlighting the importance of preventing these illnesses by emphasizing healthy swimming behaviors. These RWIs are caused by germs spread by swallowing, breathing in mists or aerosols, or having contact with contaminated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers or oceans. RWIs can also be caused by chemicals in the water or chemicals that evaporate from the water and cause indoor air quality problems. Diarrhea is the most common route of infection for RWI, and it is often caused by germs like Crypto (short for Cryptosporidium), Giardia, norovirus, Shigella, and E. coli O157:H7. Other routes of infec tion for common RWIs include skin, ear, respiratory, eye, neuro logic, and wound infections. Children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk for RWIs, said Dr. Kevin Sherin, Director of the Department of Health in Orange County. Any one who is ill should also avoid swimming until their symptoms have passed. Chlorine and other pool water treatments dont kill germs in stantly, and just one diarrheal in cident can release enough germs into the water that swallowing a mouthful can cause diarrhea lasting up to 2 weeks, said for the Department of Health in Seminole County. We all share the water we swim in, and we each need to do our part to keep ourselves, our families, and our friends healthy. To help protect yourself and other swimmers from germs, here are a few simple and effective steps all swimmers can take each time we swim:en Dont swim when you have diarrhea.en Shower with soap before you start swimming.en Take a rinse shower before you get back into the water.en Take bathroom breaks every 60 minutes.en Wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers.en Check the chlorine and pH levels before getting into the wa ter. Proper chlorine (1 mg/L or parts per million [ppm]) and pH (7.2.8) levels maximize germkilling power. Most superstores, hardware stores, and pool supply stores sell pool test strips.en Dont swallow the water you swim in. Parents of young children should take a few extra steps:en Take children on bathroom breaks every 60 minutes or check diapers every 30 minutes.en Change diapers in the bath room or diaper-changing area and not at poolside where germs can rinse into the water. Remember Think Healthy. Swim Healthy. Be Healthy!
