And a program that rewards employees for meeting healthy living goals has already shown promise, according to city The city just launched a program that gives employees gift cards or even paid time off for working to ward a healthy lifestyle. Were not rewarding people if they just drop the weight or just lower cholesterol, human re sources analyst Erica Bereczki said. We want people to get active and involved in their health and wellness. To further that attitude, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 8 the city will give residents a look at cityCommunity Health Fair, with free screenings with doctors, dentists and dieticians and even a mas seuse. Its open to anyone, Bereczki said, and will help get visitors liv ing healthy. The signs and billboards plaster ing the area around U.S. High way 17-92 in Casselberry all bear the same message that local resi dents and business owners hope will reach City Hall: To that end, a meeting was held Monday evening at the JaiAlai fronton on 17-92 in hopes of building support for alternative plans that call for improvements to the clogged Seminole County artery rather than the proposed that some business owners fear cy. But they have another idea without the business falloff. The alternative plan, called the Boulevard Plan, organized and paid for by Jai-Alai owner bring jobs to Earth by strapping an asteroid to the back of a space ship and towing it to the moon. man said the space agency is hoping to turn it into science fact, and faster than most of the agencys projects. When you hear about it, it obviously sounds very auda cious, and it is, said Allard Beu tel, a spokesperson for NASA. But its also very possible. And the out-of-this-world asteroid initiative could bring new jobs and provide an eco nomic stimulus to the Central Florida area over the next few years. With a launch set for 2017, the asteroid initiative is currently in the planning stages, and in volves identifying an asteroid and using an unmanned space craft to tow the rock into a stable orbit around the moon for future study. And that unusual mission could lead to a boost in the lo cal economy that comes with the construction, training and research of launching space missions from the Kennedy Space Center, Beutel said. Were talking about jobs in the United States and launch ing from U.S. soil again, Beutel said. It helps the local economy, it helps the United States, the space coast and it helps Central Florida. University of Central Flori da economist Sean Snaith said this could provide an economic boost, on the condition that its actually carried out. Its good news and a needed boost if it happens, Snaith said. Im a little bit concerned that it may never come to fruition, but that being said, if it does happen, ter hole that was left in the space coast economy when the shuttle program came to an end.

With this action, West Germany was given the right to become a full-fledged member of the western alliance against the Soviet Union.

Farrell VICE PRESIDENTS: Patti Green & Jeff BabineauPeriodicals postage is paid at Oviedo, Fla. tral Florida continues to be a force in space technology and research, leaving the door open for continued economic opportunities. Any time you have a tech nology development corridor like we have in Seminole County with UCF and the Research Park, which is in Orange County, but directly below Seminole County, that provides an opportunity for dollars to come in to develop tech nology and apply it, said Oviedo councilmember Keith Britton, who works in NASAs project It does provide a little bit of an opportunity for us. One of the biggest power play Central Florida is UCF, who re cently received a $55 million grant from NASA to build and launch an instrument into space to cap ture images of Earths upper at mosphere. The launch of the instrument is also set for 2017, with the Ken nedy Space Center as a potential location. Beutel mentioned that the in creased involvement of business es and universities with NASAs research and operations is a sign of the times ahead, and that this will mean even more jobs down the road. Its a slow transformation from what had been traditionally a government-centric spaceport to a multi-user spaceport, which would allow a lot more diversity, more jobs and more technological development in the area, Beutel said. While there is great potential for an economic boost in Central Florida, Beutel urged the public not to forget the big picture when it comes to the asteroid initiative: protection from asteroids. This would help the potential of pulling together a mission that would be needed to steer a po tentially dangerous asteroid that could cause serious damage and even wipe out the planet, Beutel get hit be space rocks every day of different sizes. With the one that came over Russia in February, that hap pens every 50 to 100 years, but you saw the kind of damage that one caused. That one didnt even reach the ground. NASA has a follow-up mission to the asteroid initiative planned for 2021, where the new Orion spacecraft will be sent to gather samples and study the captured asteroid.NASA | Project could pave the way for business collaborationFLYOVER | Fears of business dropoff CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Richard Birdoff, calls for a widen ing of 17-92 at the critical juncture of State Road 436, with planted medians and pedestrian walk ways. Birdoff has a vested interest in the project as the owner of not only the Jai-Alai fronton, but also the shopping center and much of the property on the southeast cor ner of 17-92. The Boulevard Plan seemed popular with business owners like Rhonda Campbell-Summey whose family has owned Sir Vac, located south of the intersection, for more than 50 years. I like the new plan, but I was most disappointed to see that elected representatives of the city and county were not present, she said. I feel like they should have been there to hear what was proposed. In fact, two Casselberry com missioners were present and al ternative plans have been brought before the city on multiple occa sions, but according to Casselber ry Mayor Charlene Glancy, alter native plans have so far failed to address the key issue of capacity. The whole purpose is to reGlancy. We cant consider any al ternatives that fail to do that. The engineers [hired by Bird off] have not been able to come up commodates the capacity issues, she said. At this point, there is no reason to make a change because there is no alternative that solves the problems. Business owners and residents expressed strong feelings about during the Q & A session following the meeting. Outspoken former Casselberry mayoral candidate James Fraleigh heatedly called the project the citys Great Wall of China, saying it would be counterproduc tive to all of us. Bill Walker, owner of Bills Car Wash, spoke passionately about his business and its place in the community, expressing his con his business going forward. Many business owners who the unsightliness of the project, its view-blocking size and the changwhy they oppose it. They are concerned that poten tial customers will no longer be able to see them due to blocked sightlines and that access to their businesses will be severely ham Fern Park resident Carol Prescott is ready for change and looks forward to the new devel This area has always been a wasteland, with stores coming and going, she said. I hope this will clean things up and bring in new life. It seems like the owner of the Jai-Alai has a lot at stake in this, but Im not sure that his ideas are in the best interest of the com munity long term.

Before audiences, theyre a beautiful, dramatic blur of waving, dancing, spin ning blue and purple. As the theatrical music of Florence and the Machine pumps, the team builds up an energetic ing like they mean it. And they win. Oviedos color guard recent ly won the state championships in Daytona in the AA division out of 16 teams in Flori da. The teams are judged on the overall vi sual effect of the show, and the complexity of movements, use of equipment, and show design. With a team larger than any other in their division at the competi tion, OHS makes a visual state ment that audiences and judges cant ignore. The more people you see do ing it, the more powerful it is, said Lyndsey Taylor, a sophomore on the team. When you look at 29 people spinning in unison thats pretty impressive, said Sharon StumpGustafson, director of the team. into the air, then spinning them gracefully around themselves with pointed toes and smooth bal let-like dance moves, entirely in sync. Thats not an easy feat, and its a vision that has to be seen to be believed, Gustafson said. Its a very precise sport, said Tinka Tucker, team captain. It requires the athlete to do or other piece of equipment while dancing, and doing it at the exact same pace as the other members of the team, Tucker said. And cre ating a show thats memorable, unique and technical, and wins the low end of 15 hours a week, to the more frequently 30 hours a week of practice. That can sometimes get intense with that many teenage girls, Gustafson said, but it also creates a family-like bond. The team is often heard using little secret phrases to encourage each other or build excitement during rough times at practice. Shouting to gether, Lets go pixie dust! and Off with her head! pump them up and blow off a little steam. It also shows that what the team has is something special, and reminds Gustafson of when she was on her own high school color guard team, surrounded by best friends. Its like having 30 sisters, Tucker said. Were always there for each other, said Piper Garick, a fresh man on the team. You just feel like you have a family. Their winning show, called The Stranger in the Mirror, was complicated, fast-paced, and re quired a family-like dedication to learn. The team used double-sided and in many points of the show they were performing facing each other, mirroring their teammates movements. That meant spinning from their left side an unnatu ral feeling for the mostly righthanded team. But thats what it takes to bring a team to the next level and do what color guard is all about sending a message through dance and music. My favorite thing about color guard is telling a story to the audi ence, said Shannon Sullivan, as sistant director. But the work put in was worth it, especially on competition day. While theyre all nervous as they formance, panic trickles into their chests as they think, This is it. Then when the music starts and the nerves all melt away. They draw you in, they make you want to watch them, Gus tafson said. And thats what brings a win.Oviedo color guard wins stateOviedo High Schools color guard worked as a team of sisters to beat top high school squadsBRITTNI JOHNSON The VoicePHOTOS BY SARAH WILSON THE VOICEShowing off the routines that won them the state color guard champion ship, Oviedos Lions move in synchronous at practice in the schools courtyard.

Page 6 The Knights have gotten their wins propelling them along their longest winning streak of the sea son after a 7-3 win over Houston on April 28. After a horrendous start to the season, pitcher Brian Adkins looks like hes made a 180 turn around with two straight wins without giving up an earned run. before handing the ball off to Zac Favre for his fourth save of the season. From the plate the Knights mastered small ball, with only one extra base hit among their 11 in the game, coming courtesy of a double by designated hitter Bret Gordon. The win gave the Knights (2519, 11-7) the series sweep over Houston (27-17, 7-8), their second series sweep in Conference USA play this year. At press time Wednesday the Knights were hosting Bethune-Cookman for a single non-conference respite be fore taking the bus to Tallahassee for a three-game series against Florida State this weekend. That could prove one of the toughest series the Knights have faced in team history. The Semi noles are 35-9 this season, having started the season with 16-straight wins, including a 23-5 slaughter house against Villanova. But the Seminoles have shown some weakness as of late, drop ping a three-game sweep at the hands of Virginia two weeks ago. The Knights and the Seminoles have a history, though that his tory has not been kind to UCF. Last season in a two-game series the Knights dropped both, though both came by a margin of just one run. The last time the Knights beat the Seminoles was May 7, 2011, when they won a 14-10 slugfest. Seminoles have taken four wins. The action starts at 6 p.m. Fri day. Theyll follow that with a 6 p.m. Saturday game, then 1 p.m. Sunday. All three games will be televised on ESPN3. THIS WEEK in sports history May 6, 1954 In a race in Oxford, England, 25-year-old medical student Roger Bannister becomes the first runner to crack the four-minute mile. Bannister ran the mile in a time of 3 minutes and 59.4 seconds. Oviedos playoff run continued Thursday at press time as the Li ons hoped to keep up their red hot regionals. Theyd already domi nated their Class 7A District 4 tournament with two wins that added up to a combined 31-1 scor ing differential. What that would mean for the Lions on the verge of hosting New Smyrna Beach was anyones guess, though the numbers fa vored the Lions. The two teams hadnt met this year, but against similar opponents the Barracudas (14-7) hadnt shown nearly the same dominant hitting as the Li ons (19-6). With the odds on their side, the Lions could end up facing Lake Howell again, just a week after the Lions crushed them 14-1 in the district championship. But set by Lake Howell to make that happen.

A thought: Middle age is when your narrow waist and your broad mind change places. E. Joseph Cossman We are all students and learners and teachers. I write this in tribute to my greatest teacher from a students perspective. Maybe you will stop to think of a favorite teacher, mentor or role model, and perhaps even reach out and say hello to them. Dr. Elbert V. Bowden taught at Appala chian State University, and from a piercing gaze behind large, wired glasses, the wildhaired eccentric professor enthusiastically discussed his economics course assign the courses planned 84 essays in a totally unusual way. And he issued this challenge: If past performance indicates future performance, no student will earn a Bowden A. With no clue of what macroeconomics was, these declarations already waged war within me. Over time, the war became a voyage to take all of his courses and to earn a Bowden A.

With sex organs ap pearing as a lumpy pro tuberance a few segments behind their mouths, worms are asexual. After a pair mates, cocoons are released into the soil, eventually hatching into miniature adults. Immense populations will quickly build in a suitable terrain. Too bad our sandy soils and weather here in Central Florida are not conductive to the extremes of the rich soil creators of a Midwest prairie. Food scraps wasted to the trashcan or sink disposal destined for a garbage dump or sewage plant create very toxic byproducts, especially greenhouse gases of our homestead food scraps to our local ized worms, we save energy and money in numerous transport systems, pollution Cumulatively speaking, think of all the large and noisy trucks that pick up our trash that could be eliminated from our highways.

Collecting surface refugees after a heavy rain will not bring success to eager vermicomposters, but will provide a few braggart boys with the means to scare their little sisters (or visa-versa). Bins, boxes and tubs made of anything but metal are the most industrious for mats to take advantage of the marvelous recycling habits of earthworms. Puncture homemade enclosures with plenty of holes for air circulation and drainage and line the inside with window screen.

Sarullo had already been rescuing orphaned animals for the better part of two decades before an anonymous donor gave two empty buildings to her in 2010. But the combined 9,000 square Paw Park Place dog park was nowhere near the gleaming spay and neuter clinic and adoption center shed hoped for. More than two years of fundraising and ren ovation later, that vision is slowly materializing. Its a dream come true, she said. I always knew it would hap pen, I just didnt know it would take me 20 years, but here we are. Im so grateful to everyone. I cant of relief. While the current loca tion on Iroquois Avenue has met the needs of thousands of animals opted out last year the build ing comes with a monthly rent often struggled to meet. A location owned by the shelter also means less of a chance for legal battles, like in early 2006 when Pet Rescue by Judy was evicted from its Oviedo location because of code violations. Its just a home for my ani mals, Sarullo said. We dont have to worry about people complaining and telling us we have to move. Its just a phenomenal feelconstruction for the new shelter, Pet Rescue by Judy started a proj ect called Save the Tails, which accepts the donation of funds and construction services. Save the Tails Project Manager lo after adopting two kittens from her a few months ago. Now she runs Judys donation engine, as the little lady with the New York spunkiness works to give thou sands of orphaned animals per manent homes of their own. I dont think Ive ever met anyone more dedicated, ElliottRink said. Im doing this for her, that her legacy will live on. Shes like the Mother Teresa of furry ones in Central Florida. A slew of local businesses and companies have already stepped up to donate their services, including general contractors EDC Group, Speedy Concrete Cutting Inc. and Hickey Electric Inc. Were very happy to be here and be part of this for these pets and for Judy, because shes a wonderful person, said Alan Cohn, managing partner for EDC Group. Were looking forward these pets taken care of. Speedy Concrete Cutting Vice President John Gunther wanted to help the woman who has spent her life saving pets. At the end of the day, she stands up for those who have no options and cant stand up for themselves, Gunther said. She does that on behalf of the rest of with this and help any way I can. All of that effort is going to giving animals a good home, Sa still under the watch of the shel ter, and more coming in daily, its a struggle that will continue long after her dream comes true. Thats what Sarullo signed up for two decades ago, after a chance adoption turned into a mission to save lives. Its not a charity thing and its not for me, its for the animals, Sarullo said. The more animals homes, the happier I am. Sarullo said that the renovations and construction are set for completion in late October. Tens of thousands of adoptions later, itll be Sarullos turn to come home, Elliott-Rink said. Finally, Judy will have a forever home.JUDY | Pet Rescue hoping for builders to donate supplies, time CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

But if you plan ahead, youre more likely to get the kind of care you want. Here are some questions and answers to help you jump-start the process:If you need long-term care, what are your preferences? Once, long-term care meant staying in a nursing home. Not anymore. Today, there are assisted living facilities, retirement communities with many levels of care, and devices that can help you stay in your home longer. Think about what you want, and then do as much as you can in advance to plan for it. For stay in your home, make grab bars and accessible entryways.

Policies usually pay up to a certain amount per day and have might not need care for decades after you buy the policy, so you need to make sure that the Most policies dont start paying until after you need care for a certain period of time, which is known as the elimination period. You need to know how long that is. Also ask how disabled youll need to be before coverage begins: Policies require different levels of disability before they start to pay.

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.

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.

Visit FLORIDASHINE.org for more information. 407.695.9739 kathyakrug@gmail.com Life is full of ups and downs and the finan cial markets are no different. As an investor, youre no doubt happy to see the ups but the downs can seem like a real downer. Isnt there any way to help smooth out the volatility in your investment portfolio? First of all, to cope with volatility, its helpful to know what causes it and there can be many causes. Computers that make trades in milliseconds, based on mathematical models, are sometimes blamed for intraday volatility, but large price swings can also occur follow ing the release of government economic re ports, such as those dealing with unemployment and housing starts. Global events, such as the European economic malaise, can also send the financial markets into a tizzy. By being aware of the impact of these events, you can see that the workings of the markets especially their volatility may not be as mysterious as you thought. Still, while know ing the causes of volatility can help you prepare for market swings, it wont blunt their impact on your portfolio. To do that, you need to create a diversified mix of investments be cause your portfolio can be more susceptible to negative price movements if you only own one type of asset. To illustrate: If you owned mostly bonds, and interest rates rose sharply, the value of your bonds would likely drop, and your portfolio could take a big hit. But if you owned stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs) and other investment vehicles, the rise in interest rates would probably affect your portfolio less significantly. Unfortunately, many investors think that if they own a few stocks and a bond, theyre diversified. But you can actually extend your diversification through many levels and you should. For the equity portion of your portfolio, try to own stocks representing many market sectors and industries. Also, consider international stocks. And rather than just owning U.S. Treasury bonds, consider corporate bonds and municipal bonds, and diversify your fixed-income holdings further by pur chasing short-term, intermediate-term and long-term bonds. Work with your financial advisor to determine the mix of asset classes and investments that are appropriate for your financial goals and objectives. How you ultimately diversify your portfolio depends on your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals theres no one cor rect asset mix for everyone. And over time, your diversification needs may change. To cite one example, as you enter your retire ment years, you may need to increase your percentage of income-producing investments while possibly reducing the amount of growth investments you own. These growth-oriented investments tend to be more volatile, and you may want less volatility during your re tirement. However, even during retirement, you will need to own a certain percentage of growth investments to provide you with the growth potential youll need to stay ahead of inflation. Keep in mind that diversification cant guar antee a profit or protect against loss. Nonethe less, building a diversified portfolio may help take some of the volatility out of investing so look for diversification opportunities when ever possible.Edward Jones, its employees and financial advisors cannot provide tax or legal advice.

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.

And a program that rewards employees for meeting healthy living goals has already shown promise, according to city The city just launched a program that gives employees gift cards or even paid time off for working to ward a healthy lifestyle. Were not rewarding people if they just drop the weight or just lower cholesterol, human re sources analyst Erica Bereczki said. We want people to get active and involved in their health and well ness. To further that attitude, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 8 the city will give residents a look at cityCommunity Health Fair, with free screenings with doctors, dentists and dieticians and even a mas seuse. Its open to anyone, Bereczki said, and will help get visitors liv ing healthy. The signs and billboards plaster ing the area around U.S. High way 17-92 in Casselberry all bear the same message that local resi dents and business owners hope will reach City Hall: To that end, a meeting was held Monday evening at the JaiAlai fronton on 17-92 in hopes of building support for alternative plans that call for improvements to the clogged Seminole County artery rather than the proposed that some business owners fear cy. But they have another idea without the business falloff. The alternative plan, called the Boulevard Plan, organized and paid for by Jai-Alai owner bring jobs to Earth by strapping an asteroid to the back of a space ship and towing it to the moon. man said the space agency is hoping to turn it into science fact, and faster than most of the agencys projects. When you hear about it, it obviously sounds very auda cious, and it is, said Allard Beu tel, a spokesperson for NASA. But its also very possible. And the out-of-this-world asteroid initiative could bring new jobs and provide an eco nomic stimulus to the Central Florida area over the next few years. With a launch set for 2017, the asteroid initiative is currently in the planning stages, and in volves identifying an asteroid and using an unmanned space craft to tow the rock into a stable orbit around the moon for future study. And that unusual mission could lead to a boost in the lo cal economy that comes with the construction, training and research of launching space mis sions from the Kennedy Space Center, Beutel said. Were talking about jobs in the United States and launch ing from U.S. soil again, Beutel said. It helps the local economy, it helps the United States, the space coast and it helps Central Florida. University of Central Flori da economist Sean Snaith said this could provide an economic boost, on the condition that its actually carried out. Its good news and a needed boost if it happens, Snaith said. Im a little bit concerned that it may never come to fruition, but that being said, if it does happen, ter hole that was left in the space coast economy when the shuttle program came to an end.

CHAIRMAN: Rance Crain PRESIDENT/CEO: Francis X. Farrell VICE PRESIDENTS: Patti Green & Jeff Babineau Periodicals postage is paid at Oviedo, Fla. tral Florida continues to be a force in space technology and research, leaving the door open for contin ued economic opportunities. Any time you have a tech nology development corridor like we have in Seminole County with UCF and the Research Park, which is in Orange County, but directly below Seminole County, that provides an opportunity for dollars to come in to develop tech nology and apply it, said Oviedo councilmember Keith Britton, who works in NASAs project It does provide a little bit of an opportunity for us. One of the biggest power play Central Florida is UCF, who re cently received a $55 million grant from NASA to build and launch an instrument into space to cap ture images of Earths upper at mosphere. The launch of the instrument is also set for 2017, with the Ken nedy Space Center as a potential location. Beutel mentioned that the in creased involvement of business es and universities with NASAs research and operations is a sign of the times ahead, and that this will mean even more jobs down the road. Its a slow transformation from what had been traditionally a government-centric spaceport to a multi-user spaceport, which would allow a lot more diversity, more jobs and more technological development in the area, Beutel said. While there is great potential for an economic boost in Central Florida, Beutel urged the public not to forget the big picture when it comes to the asteroid initiative: protection from asteroids. This would help the potential of pulling together a mission that would be needed to steer a po tentially dangerous asteroid that could cause serious damage and even wipe out the planet, Beutel get hit be space rocks every day of different sizes. With the one that came over Russia in February, that hap pens every 50 to 100 years, but you saw the kind of damage that one caused. That one didnt even reach the ground. NASA has a follow-up mission to the asteroid initiative planned for 2021, where the new Orion spacecraft will be sent to gather samples and study the captured asteroid. NASA | Project could pave the way for business collaboration FLYOVER | Fears of business dropoff C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Richard Birdoff, calls for a widen ing of 17-92 at the critical juncture of State Road 436, with planted medians and pedestrian walk ways. Birdoff has a vested interest in the project as the owner of not only the Jai-Alai fronton, but also the shopping center and much of the property on the southeast cor ner of 17-92. The Boulevard Plan seemed popular with business owners like Rhonda Campbell-Summey whose family has owned Sir Vac, located south of the intersection, for more than 50 years. I like the new plan, but I was most disappointed to see that elected representatives of the city and county were not present, she said. I feel like they should have been there to hear what was pro posed. In fact, two Casselberry com missioners were present and al ternative plans have been brought before the city on multiple occa sions, but according to Casselber ry Mayor Charlene Glancy, alter native plans have so far failed to address the key issue of capacity. The whole purpose is to re Glancy. We cant consider any al ternatives that fail to do that. The engineers [hired by Bird off] have not been able to come up commodates the capacity issues, she said. At this point, there is no reason to make a change because there is no alternative that solves the problems. Business owners and residents expressed strong feelings about during the Q & A session follow ing the meeting. Outspoken former Casselberry mayoral candidate James Fraleigh heatedly called the project the citys Great Wall of China, say ing it would be counterproduc tive to all of us. Bill Walker, owner of Bills Car Wash, spoke passionately about his business and its place in the community, expressing his con his business going forward. Many business owners who the unsightliness of the project, its view-blocking size and the chang why they oppose it. They are concerned that poten tial customers will no longer be able to see them due to blocked sightlines and that access to their businesses will be severely ham Fern Park resident Carol Prescott is ready for change and looks forward to the new devel This area has always been a wasteland, with stores coming and going, she said. I hope this will clean things up and bring in new life. It seems like the owner of the Jai-Alai has a lot at stake in this, but Im not sure that his ideas are in the best interest of the com munity long term.

Before audienc es, theyre a beautiful, dramatic blur of waving, dancing, spin ning blue and purple. As the the atrical music of Florence and the Machine pumps, the team builds up an energetic ing like they mean it. And they win. Oviedos col or guard recent ly won the state championships in Daytona in the AA divi sion out of 16 teams in Flori da. The teams are judged on the overall vi sual effect of the show, and the complexity of movements, use of equipment, and show design. With a team larger than any other in their division at the competi tion, OHS makes a visual state ment that audiences and judges cant ignore. The more people you see do ing it, the more powerful it is, said Lyndsey Taylor, a sophomore on the team. When you look at 29 people spinning in unison thats pretty impressive, said Sharon StumpGustafson, director of the team. into the air, then spinning them gracefully around themselves with pointed toes and smooth bal let-like dance moves, entirely in sync. Thats not an easy feat, and its a vision that has to be seen to be believed, Gustafson said. Its a very precise sport, said Tinka Tucker, team captain. It requires the athlete to do or other piece of equipment while dancing, and doing it at the exact same pace as the other members of the team, Tucker said. And cre ating a show thats memorable, unique and technical, and wins the low end of 15 hours a week, to the more frequently 30 hours a week of practice. That can sometimes get intense with that many teenage girls, Gustafson said, but it also cre ates a family-like bond. The team is often heard using little secret phrases to encourage each other or build excitement during rough times at practice. Shouting to gether, Lets go pixie dust! and Off with her head! pump them up and blow off a little steam. It also shows that what the team has is something special, and reminds Gustafson of when she was on her own high school color guard team, surrounded by best friends. Its like having 30 sisters, Tucker said. Were always there for each other, said Piper Garick, a fresh man on the team. You just feel like you have a family. Their winning show, called The Stranger in the Mirror, was complicated, fast-paced, and re quired a family-like dedication to learn. The team used double-sided and in many points of the show they were performing facing each other, mirroring their teammates movements. That meant spinning from their left side an unnatu ral feeling for the mostly righthanded team. But thats what it takes to bring a team to the next level and do what color guard is all about sending a message through dance and music. My favorite thing about color guard is telling a story to the audi ence, said Shannon Sullivan, as sistant director. But the work put in was worth it, especially on competition day. While theyre all nervous as they formance, panic trickles into their chests as they think, This is it. Then when the music starts and the nerves all melt away. They draw you in, they make you want to watch them, Gus tafson said. And thats what brings a win.

Page 6 The Knights have gotten their wins propelling them along their longest winning streak of the sea son after a 7-3 win over Houston on April 28. After a horrendous start to the season, pitcher Brian Adkins looks like hes made a 180 turn around with two straight wins without giving up an earned run. before handing the ball off to Zac Favre for his fourth save of the season. From the plate the Knights mastered small ball, with only one extra base hit among their 11 in the game, coming courtesy of a double by designated hitter Bret Gordon. The win gave the Knights (2519, 11-7) the series sweep over Houston (27-17, 7-8), their sec ond series sweep in Conference USA play this year. At press time Wednesday the Knights were hosting Bethune-Cookman for a single non-conference respite be fore taking the bus to Tallahassee for a three-game series against Florida State this weekend. That could prove one of the toughest series the Knights have faced in team history. The Semi noles are 35-9 this season, having started the season with 16-straight wins, including a 23-5 slaughter house against Villanova. But the Seminoles have shown some weakness as of late, drop ping a three-game sweep at the hands of Virginia two weeks ago. The Knights and the Seminoles have a history, though that his tory has not been kind to UCF. Last season in a two-game series the Knights dropped both, though both came by a margin of just one run. The last time the Knights beat the Seminoles was May 7, 2011, when they won a 14-10 slugfest. Seminoles have taken four wins. The action starts at 6 p.m. Fri day. Theyll follow that with a 6 p.m. Saturday game, then 1 p.m. Sunday. All three games will be televised on ESPN3.

What that would mean for the Lions on the verge of hosting New Smyrna Beach was anyones guess, though the numbers fa vored the Lions. The two teams hadnt met this year, but against similar opponents the Barracudas (14-7) hadnt shown nearly the same dominant hitting as the Li ons (19-6). With the odds on their side, the Lions could end up facing Lake Howell again, just a week after the Lions crushed them 14-1 in the district championship. But set by Lake Howell to make that happen.

The wreaths will honor all soldiers, as well as placed in the memory of his father, Captain Bruce MacFar lane, who died in Afghanistan in July 2012. Happy Mothers Day on May 12! A thought: Middle age is when your narrow waist and your broad mind change places. E. Joseph Cossman We are all students and learners and teach ers. I write this in tribute to my greatest teacher from a students perspective. Maybe you will stop to think of a favorite teacher, mentor or role model, and perhaps even reach out and say hello to them. Dr. Elbert V. Bowden taught at Appala chian State University, and from a piercing gaze behind large, wired glasses, the wildhaired eccentric professor enthusiastically discussed his economics course assign the courses planned 84 essays in a totally unusual way. And he issued this challenge: If past performance indicates future performance, no student will earn a Bowden A. With no clue of what macroeconom ics was, these declarations already waged war within me. Over time, the war became a voyage to take all of his courses and to earn a Bowden A. He continued energetically: I never answer a phone but return answers to machine messages daily starting at 2 a.m., a dull time for me for which I perform routine tasks. Turn on your answering machine if you dont wish to speak. By this point in his life he had authored dozens of publications and his book, Eco nomics, The Science of Common Sense, traveled the globe as a merchant marine during World War II, recorded country songs, earned a Ph.D. from Duke Univer sity, and changed the lives of thousands, challenging them to reach their potential. Appalachian States student-managed investment fund was named in his honor in 2001. We had to study hard, write continu ously and prepare for examinations. Tight pencil gripping brought perspi ration that dropped onto the quiz sheets like dew drops on the morning grass. The water made the typical left-handed pencil smudges into puffy, irregularly bordered cloud-like rings of graphite. A soft knot bleed small droplets of blood on the paper. One week as Bowden handed out quiz zes, he blasted: Good news, there was a Bowden A on quiz 7. Is it the student with clutter behind his desk, with dreadful handwriting, who wrote a note apologiz I was purple-faced as he handed me the paper and said: Keep it up and Keep the clutter to a minimum. I will never forget that moment. Six courses, several Bowden As, and a few years after graduation, I requested a letter of recommendation. He wrote: Denver may not know his true potential, is too worried about success to see his potential, is a hard worker, earned Bowden As, never missed class. effect, and so much more in these longlasting lessons he left us with: while waiting for the dream. Yes, to one thing means saying no, to everything else at that moment. the tenacity of earning it. teaching and grading. Generating agreement is not vital. on the brow of realized potential activated During my time with Bowden, I was challenged as never before and learned that I also had a desire to teach and inspire others. Heres to the spirit of lifelong teaching ity and beyond. UCF Forum columnist Denver Severt is an associate professor with the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida. He can be reached at Denver.Severt@ucf.edu Bowdens hard lessons DENVER SEVERT Guest Writer Red wiggler earthworms (Eisenia fetidae) and their numerous cousins create more of what we recognize as black topsoil than most other natural systems. Their voracious appetite and sex drive lead to a worldwide distribution in almost every environment. Drawing from an instinct dawned most of us recognize the for our gardens. With sex organs ap pearing as a lumpy pro tuberance a few segments behind their mouths, worms are asexual. After a pair mates, cocoons are released into the soil, eventually hatching into miniature adults. Immense populations will quickly build in a suitable terrain. Too bad our sandy soils and weather here in Central Florida are not conductive to the extremes of the rich soil creators of a Midwest prairie. Food scraps wasted to the trashcan or sink disposal destined for a garbage dump or sewage plant create very toxic byproducts, especially greenhouse gases of our homestead food scraps to our local ized worms, we save energy and money in numerous transport systems, pollution Cumulatively speaking, think of all the large and noisy trucks that pick up our trash that could be eliminated from our highways. Only a few species of earthworms tion, and temperature tolerance traits are needed to build a family-scaled worm operation. Collecting surface refugees after a heavy rain will not bring success to eager vermicomposters, but will provide a few braggart boys with the means to scare their little sisters (or visa-versa). Bins, boxes and tubs made of anything but metal are the most industrious for mats to take advantage of the marvelous recycling habits of earthworms. Puncture homemade enclosures with plenty of holes for air circulation and drainage and line the inside with window screen. Manufac tured worm farms and starter populations are available locally in Apopka at Our Vital Earth (1-800-237-4780). Worm farms are much more compact food scraps, sans meat and dairy, into the top few inches of the bins medium. An optional surface mulch of shredded news paper helps to loosen the tilth and absorbs excess moisture. Irrigate the operation a few times a week preferably with rainwa ter. The collected lumpy castings are the worlds best fertilizer. Tannin colored tea that drains from a bottom spout can be applied directly to plants (I chide guests to my garden that I prefer my earthworm tea projects I tread, worm farming is the one I stress beyond a mere suggestion!

Sarullo had already been res cuing orphaned animals for the better part of two decades before an anonymous donor gave two empty buildings to her in 2010. But the combined 9,000 square Paw Park Place dog park was nowhere near the gleaming spay and neuter clinic and adoption center shed hoped for. More than two years of fundraising and ren ovation later, that vision is slowly materializing. Its a dream come true, she said. I always knew it would hap pen, I just didnt know it would take me 20 years, but here we are. Im so grateful to everyone. I cant of relief. While the current loca tion on Iroquois Avenue has met the needs of thousands of animals opted out last year the build ing comes with a monthly rent often struggled to meet. A location owned by the shel ter also means less of a chance for legal battles, like in early 2006 when Pet Rescue by Judy was evicted from its Oviedo location because of code violations. Its just a home for my ani mals, Sarullo said. We dont have to worry about people com plaining and telling us we have to move. Its just a phenomenal feel construction for the new shelter, Pet Rescue by Judy started a proj ect called Save the Tails, which accepts the donation of funds and construction services.

Now she runs Judys donation engine, as the little lady with the New York spunkiness works to give thou sands of orphaned animals per manent homes of their own. I dont think Ive ever met anyone more dedicated, ElliottRink said. Im doing this for her, that her legacy will live on. Shes like the Mother Teresa of furry ones in Central Florida. A slew of local businesses and companies have already stepped up to donate their services, in cluding general contractors EDC Group, Speedy Concrete Cutting Inc. and Hickey Electric Inc. Were very happy to be here and be part of this for these pets and for Judy, because shes a wonderful person, said Alan Cohn, managing partner for EDC Group. Were looking forward these pets taken care of. Speedy Concrete Cutting Vice President John Gunther wanted to help the woman who has spent her life saving pets. At the end of the day, she stands up for those who have no options and cant stand up for themselves, Gunther said. She does that on behalf of the rest of with this and help any way I can. All of that effort is going to giving animals a good home, Sa still under the watch of the shel ter, and more coming in daily, its a struggle that will continue long after her dream comes true. Thats what Sarullo signed up for two decades ago, after a chance adop tion turned into a mission to save lives. Its not a charity thing and its not for me, its for the animals, Sarullo said. The more animals homes, the happier I am. Sarullo said that the renova tions and construction are set for completion in late October. Tens of thousands of adoptions later, itll be Sarullos turn to come home, Elliott-Rink said. Finally, Judy will have a forever home.

But if you plan ahead, youre more likely to get the kind of care you want. Here are some questions and an swers to help you jump-start the process: If you need long-term care, what are your preferences? Once, long-term care meant staying in a nursing home. Not anymore. Today, there are assisted living facilities, retirement communities with many levels of care, and devices that can help you stay in your home longer. Think about what you want, and then do as much as you can in advance to plan for it. For stay in your home, make grab bars and accessible entryways. Should you consider buying longterm care insurance? Planning is a good idea, but you may end up needing more care than you anticipated. Thats where long-term care insurance may help.

Financial advisors suggest that it is best to purchase long-term care insurance a policy if you are older, but the longer you wait, the more a policy will cost. What should you look for in a longterm care insurance policy? Policies vary a lot. Here are some things youll need to understand before you sign up. First, make sure the protection. Policies usu ally pay up to a certain amount per day and have might not need care for decades after you buy the policy, so you need to make sure that the Most policies dont start paying until after you need care for a certain period of time, which is known as the elimination period. You need to know how long that is. Also ask how disabled youll need to be before coverage begins: Policies require different levels of disability before they start to pay.

Some long-term care insurance. What if you cant afford long-term care insurance and end up needing expensive long-term care? If you dont have insurance and need care, you generally have to pay for it yourself, which can eat up your assets. But if that happens, there is a safety net: Every states Medicaid program pays for long-term care. While its best to not have to qualify for Medicaid, its there if you need it. Its the only reliable long-term care insurance we have right now. Are there other options or resources? Some states have whats called longterm care partnership programs. If you buy an approved insurance policy through such a program, you can qualify for Medicaid when you run out of insur ance coverage, instead of when you use up your assets. Check if your state has a program. Also visit longtermcare.gov, a resource clearinghouse for senior services that includes information on long-term care options. Are there any policy changes on the horizon that might help? Unfortunately, we dont have anything like Medicare for long-term care a national insurance program for everyone.

VA home loans are great deal 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.

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.

As an investor, youre no doubt happy to see the ups but the downs can seem like a real downer. Isnt there any way to help smooth out the volatility in your investment portfolio? First of all, to cope with volatility, its helpful to know what causes it and there can be many causes. Computers that make trades in milliseconds, based on mathematical models, are sometimes blamed for intraday volatility, but large price swings can also occur follow ing the release of government economic re ports, such as those dealing with unemployment and housing starts. Global events, such as the European economic malaise, can also send the financial markets into a tizzy. By being aware of the impact of these events, you can see that the workings of the markets especially their volatility may not be as mysterious as you thought. Still, while know ing the causes of volatility can help you prepare for market swings, it wont blunt their impact on your portfolio. To do that, you need to create a diversified mix of investments be cause your portfolio can be more susceptible to negative price movements if you only own one type of asset. To illustrate: If you owned mostly bonds, and interest rates rose sharply, the value of your bonds would likely drop, and your portfolio could take a big hit. But if you owned stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs) and other investment vehicles, the rise in interest rates would probably affect your portfolio less significantly. Unfortunately, many investors think that if they own a few stocks and a bond, theyre diversified. But you can actually extend your diversification through many levels and you should. For the equity portion of your portfolio, try to own stocks representing many market sectors and industries. Also, consider international stocks. And rather than just owning U.S. Treasury bonds, consider corporate bonds and municipal bonds, and diversify your fixed-income holdings further by pur chasing short-term, intermediate-term and long-term bonds. Work with your financial advisor to determine the mix of asset classes and investments that are appropriate for your financial goals and objectives. How you ultimately diversify your portfolio depends on your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals theres no one cor rect asset mix for everyone. And over time, your diversification needs may change. To cite one example, as you enter your retire ment years, you may need to increase your percentage of income-producing investments while possibly reducing the amount of growth investments you own. These growth-oriented investments tend to be more volatile, and you may want less volatility during your re tirement. However, even during retirement, you will need to own a certain percentage of growth investments to provide you with the growth potential youll need to stay ahead of inflation. Keep in mind that diversification cant guar antee a profit or protect against loss. Nonethe less, building a diversified portfolio may help take some of the volatility out of investing so look for diversification opportunities when ever possible.Edward Jones, its employees and financial advisors cannot provide tax or legal advice.

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.
