A n expanse of earthy green encompasses as far as the eye can see, splashed by incongruous areas of gray as you sit in a red mov ie theater chair angled slightly back, eyes toward the sky. You are here, says a boom by the curves of the surrounding circular walls. A red laser pointer distinguishable S-shaped grid amid the green landscape pro jected over your head. The view widens suddenly, as the dot stays put. The blues become more familiar from far ther up, forming the curvy ex panse of nearby Lake Jesup di vided in the middle by the thin gray line of State Road 417. But before you can blink, both are gone, replaced by the darkness of space, the Earth small enough from above. Travelling at a speed of 2 bil lion light years per second, the black before youre skipping over stars and skimming over the swirling molten surface of the sun. Soon youre outside our galaxy, and then our universe. The Milky Way is now, in the scheme of things, smaller than the size of the laser pointers original dot. body slightly reclined in your chair, your eyes still on Earth only now its from 30 billion light years away. The nearby S-shaped neighborhood that previously made your location at Seminole State College evident from above is no longer worthy of even the smallest increment of a pixel on the domed screen overhead. Now were able to give peo ple a different perspective of the universe, Seminole State Col lege Planetarium Director Derek Demeter said.

This is something weve been dreaming of for many years, and it It really transforms what we can do, Demeter said.

More than a year ago Mitch Silver saw an eye-opening segment on the news program Minutes about the homeless population in Semi nole County Public Schools. Silver, a Longwood attorney with the Sil ver Law Firm, thought about the children in the news story, many located just miles away, some sub sisting in transient hotels or in oth er temporary shelters. He couldnt help noting that the average home less child was 7 years old, the same age as his daughter, Laura, who at tends Sabal Point Elementary. Silver took the next step, reach ing out and calling Families in Transition (FIT) to see what could be done.

Environ mental science majors coming in to compare rising water tempera tures and falling snowfall levels, watching Earth rotate and change right in front of their eyes. We get to show off the world in a very unique way, McCon ville said. This is a global perspective, Demeter added. It allows you to show that one thing that happens in one part of the world it can dramatically impact another part of the world. Its a perspective thats now available to not only Seminole County Students, but all of the Central Florida community since the Planetarium opened after a month of renovations that ended in January. First up is The Story of the Universe, offering a look back at how the Universe came to be as it is today. After that, Demeter says, the Planetarium has countless ideas of how to utilize the new software in educational and entertaining ways in the works, including an all-encompassing simulated space cruise to Mars later this year. Its really all about getting people to think about things and see them in a different way, Demeter said. Thats the most exciting thing about this job is get ting to expand peoples minds. The Planetarium will also con tinue to hold weekly sessions of Central Florida Nights, which allows community members in sight into the sky that surrounds them at home every night, and ac cess to telescopes to view the stars and constellations up close. Demeter says theyve only been able to scratch the surface of the opportunities the recent reno vations provide, as they continue to map out the programming for this, the second semester of the Planetariums 25th year anniver sary season. But to celebrate the occasion, he said, there will be no cake or over the top party.

Page 4 D octors said shed never wake up from her coma. Elizabeth Restrepo, they said, would be in a vegetative state for the rest of her life. At only 2 years old, her life just supposed to be starting. Youre not sure if shes going to live or die, said mom Laura Restrepo. Your head is in a mil lion different directions. Twenty years ago, Elizabeth went outside on her own, climbed over an above-the-ground pools side and fell in the water. She was drowning until her brother found her and she was raced to the hos pital. She spent three months in a coma, and the prognosis was dis mal. But Laura wouldnt believe the doctors who said her daugh ter would never walk, talk, see or wake up again. She focused on what Elizabeth could do hear. They played the radio for her constantly, always talking to her, waiting for a reaction. I could not fathom that thats the reality, Laura said. I fought for her all the time. Laura was kicked out of meet ings with doctors, and described in their notes as a mother in deni al. But then Elizabeths eyesight came back, she started moving on her own, eating and getting stron ger. Soon, she was strong enough to move out of the hospital and enter a rehabilitation center. Then she worked her way back home and started her therapy at Win ter Parks Easter Seals of Florida that provides services and sup port to people with special needs and their caregivers, 18 years ago. Now, at 22, she works there. Elizabeth has heard many times that she wouldnt amount to much or that she couldnt do it, but she never listened. Im going to prove you all wrong, Elizabeth said. Im liv ing proof you can overcome it. Shes overcome many obsta cles throughout her life since the accident. She had to relearn ev were gone. She learned to walk, talk, socialize and even fall again. ESF helped her do that. They were the foundation, Laura said. Elizabeth still has tough times. Sometimes she cant remember what happened yesterday. Her and tasks like buttoning tiny but tons are impossible. She learns a little bit slower than average, but she works hard. There are times when these problems lead to little complications, especially when it comes to her memory. She and her mom normally just make a joke about it. Theyre powerfully posi tive. We laugh about it, Elizabeth said. Thats how we get through every day. Elizabeth worked hard to grad uate from high school and has be come a caregiver for the ESF cli ents with Alzheimers who attend their Day Break adult day center. She helps them with all their per sonal needs, and most impor tantly, is a friend. Before that, she was a volunteer there for 10 years. Shes the most experienced per ESF. Ventura has known Elizabeth for 18 years, and has loved watch ing her grow into a woman who contributes so much to society when the world said she wouldnt be able to do anything. Shes an example of our mis sion, Ventura said. Laura said Elizabeth relates to their clients like no one else, be cause of her own struggles. She doesnt judge, ever, Lau ra said. I felt very connected with them, Elizabeth said. Im doing my part for them. Next year she hopes to head to assistant license and eventually move out on her own. To think, the doctors never imagined her getting out of bed again. Never give up, Elizabeth said. When somebody tells you that you cant do something, prove them wrong because you can amount to anything you put your mind to.

Page 7 U.S. SAVINGS BOND OWNERS ALERT! America is changing. What will your Savings Bonds be worth tomorrow? When: Thursday, February 14 @ 10AM When: Wednesday, February 20 @ 10 AM At: At: Please call 407 -610-6100 And Much, Much More! : With 50,000 Baby Boomers celebrating their 60th to 65th birthdays every day, the genera tion that changed the world is poised to direct the future of re tirement investment strategies. In fact, the impact of their demands, enforced by their investment choices, is already being felt. Having kept close tabs on investment trends, Steve Jurich Right now, $9.43 trillion are sitting in cash vehicles as people are moving away from the stock market, he said. The demand for that risk, for the potential upside in the stock market, has shifted sideways. The smart investor is asking where they can go to ensure a stable retirement income. Thats now an area of demand. The new Hybrid Index Annui ties are the result of that demand. Jurich is a retirement coach and president of IQ Wealth Man agement in Scottsdale, Ariz. He is also a leading expert on Hybrid Index Annuities, as well as a licensed life and annuity agent authorized in multiple states, a registered investment advisor, the editor-in-chief of MyAnnuityGuy. com, and host of the Journey to Wealth show on Money Radio. In fact, hes a little like the Hybrid Annuities he favors a blend of effective virtues. He says that while retirees are in need of the pension-like vide, theyre rightly wary of the hard sell, hidden fees, penalties and surrender charges common to traditional annuities. In short, retirees refusal to settle for a lessthan-ideal solution to keeping their money secure has created a demand for an annuity that has risks and fees. What makes Hybrid Index Annuities a different breed is a blend of the potential for the up side of the market with the ability to have an insured income, but with the protection of principal value, says Jurich. They combine the best of what other annuities offer. You dont have to worry about losing money, and there are still competitive rates of payout, he promises. These products pay index interest without being tied to the market. Jurich explains, Think of a bank account that gets its inter est rate from the stock market your formula is that youll get more interest if the market rises, and if the market falls, you dont lose anything. You can never lose what youve already made. No risk, no fuss, no fees. Thats why youre seeing a rise in demand for these. Its a great combo. Builds like a pension, and you wont lose money in your retire ment. But what happens to your money if the worst should hap pen to you? While most annuities brid has multiple exit plans, and some wave surrender charges on death, allowing spouses and children to collect without paying to get the money out. A long-term care annuity can even provide extra income to pay for long-term health care costs. Jurich calls it a SWAN strategy, an acronym for Sleep Well At Night. Part of Jurichs work is to edu cate retirees on all their annuity options, with their strengths and weaknesses. Its been said that knowledge is power, and when that knowledge is applied wisely, Jurich believes it just might in herit a new moniker: wealth. Smart is the New Rich when it comes to building lasting income And its important to leave the age, depression and hopelessness at home when going into an inter view, no matter how hard that is, Gordon said. Zimmerman proved that to Christian HELP. When she went in, she was just desperate for any kind of work. They revamped her resume, spotlighting her nonstory. Not every place shed gone broke down in tears. that my life was going to change, she said.

During the course of your life, youve probably sent your share of flowers and candy. But if your valentine is also your spouse and, in particular, your long-time spouse you may want to go beyond roses and chocolates this year to give a gift that can help lead to financial security. You can choose to make financial gifts in a number of ways, of course, and some of them could provide an immediate financial impact. But you may want to look even further down the road and consider what you can do for your spouse in the areas of insurance planning and estate considerations. For starters, do you have sufficient life insurance to help provide for your spouse and any children who may not yet be adults? Many people rely solely on their employers group insurance, which is often insufficient to adequately cover all the costs associated with maintaining their families lifestyles not to mention future costs, such as paying for college. How much life insurance do you need? Theres no one right answer for everyone, so you may wish to consult with your financial advisor. Life insurance isnt the only type of protection you need to consider because you dont have to die to lose your income. In fact, statistically speaking, you are more likely to become disabled during your working years than you are to die which is why you need adequate disability income insurance. Your employer may provide disability coverage, but, as was the case with life insurance, it may not be sufficient. So you may also need to consider adding a private policy. While its important to maintain adequate life and disability insurance, its still not enough to ensure your spouse will be taken care of if he or she outlives you. You also need to ensure that your estate plans are in order. Toward that goal, you will need to work with your legal advisor to create the necessary legal documents, such as a will, a living trust, a durable power of attorney or whatever other arrangements may be appropriate for your situation. In generating your estate plan, you must consider many factors: the amount of assets you have, how you want them divided, when you would like them distributed, and so on. In any case, estate planning can be complex, so you will need to work with your legal and tax advisors before putting any strategy into place. Life insurance, disability income insurance and an estate plan dont sound like particularly romantic gifts. And you cant really just give them on Valentines Day because it will take some time to assemble the insurance coverage and estate planning arrangements you need. But if you havent fully worked on these key parts of your financial strategy yet, perhaps Valentines Day will be a good time to start because once youve got all your protection needs and estate planning taken care of, youre really giving your valentine some gifts that are designed to last a lifetime. Edward Jones, its employees and financial advisors are not estate planners and cannot provide tax or legal advice. You should consult your estate-planning attorney or qualified tax advisor regarding your situation.Financial Gi Ideas For Long-time Valentines Brent Ramsey Financial Advisor Edward Jones 1875 W.CR 419 Ste. 300 Oviedo, FL 32765 PH: 407.359.8055 For more information, Call today!(407)-644-6646www.aSafeHarbor.com Member of Bob Adams President/CEO A SafeHarbor, LLC bob@asafeharbor.comWhen is 3 greater than 7?Many of the individuals I meet with are saving and investing, while hoping to get a 7 percent return. The reality is that the fees inside their accounts could erode their returns to the point that a 3 percent return could beat 7 percent. The Custom Annuity Review with A SafeHarbor can show you Exactly how fees impact your accounts. 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. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475,Orlando,FL 328536475.2009 North America Synd.,Inc. 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.
