Man i on email@example.com In her previous role, Carol Scheckler delivered warm greetings to people when they dropped in at the Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce. But she stepped away from her job as administrative assistant at the chamber in May, and has since become president of The Samaritan Project, based in Zephyrhills. The chamber job, she said, was her paycheck. The Samaritan job doesn't pay Scheckler a dime. "Now, I don't have a paycheck, just a passion and a mission," Scheckler told members of the East Pasco Networking Group at its July 8 breakfast meeting. In fact, there are no paid positions in The Samaritan Project organization, she said. "None of us get anything other than the reward of knowing we are helping some people," said Scheckler, who became acquainted with the charitable organization when she was working for the chamber.

Not too proud to beg for homeless See HELPING, page8 B y M i chael H i n m an firstname.lastname@example.org With a new owner and a new name, change has been a constant for Bayfront Health Dade City. But while some may say too much change is bad, Shauna McKinnon knows that what the Dade City hospital has experienced in recent months will only make it better. And that includes planned major changes coming up this winter. McKinnon, who has led the hospital as its chief executive since January 2013, has been making stops around the community sharing news of a $3 million expansion planned to start later this year that will expand the five existing operating rooms, and make some much-needed updates to the pre-operation area and recovery rooms as well. "We have five rooms there right now, but they are quite small," McKinnon said. "Everything in the medical field evolves over time, and it creates more of a demand for space. We're simply responding to that demand." The renovation and expansion could take close to a year to complete, but McKinnon is not anticipating any interruptions in service. Enough space will still be made available during construction to keep surgeries going, and the hope is that seeing contractors will build excitement instead of creating any inconvenience at the 13100 Fort King Road facility. Renovating the surgical areas was next on McKinnon's list once a $3.5 million expansion of the hospital's emergency room was completed in 2012. McKinnon, however, didn't lay out the plans with her parent company until after Community Health Systems Inc. completed its $7.6 billion buyout of previous hospital owner Health Management Associates last year. "When I talked to them about it, they See HOSPITAL, page8 Don Porter: A forward-thinker, with deep community roots COURTESY OF THE PORTER FAMILY Don Porter wa s de s cr i bed by s tate Rep. W i ll Weatherford a s a g i ant of a m an.' Porter d i ed July 1 at age 73. B y B .C. Man i on email@example.com When Don Porter was growing up in Wesley Chapel, he attended elementary school at a one-room schoolhouse and rode a bus to Dade City for high school. Much has changed in the Pasco County community where he grew up and Porter and his extended family have played a considerable role in creating that change. The memorial service to honor his life was July 12 in the conference center at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, a satellite campus of Pasco-Hernando State College, on land the Porters donated. That campus is just one tangible sign of the forward-thinking and big picture approach that the entire family has used in making decisions regarding the development of thousands of acres they have owned for decades, Porter's son, J.D. Porter, said in a recent interview. The Shops at Wiregrass, a regional shopping mall, and Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, an 83-bed facility, are two other projects built within the 5,100-acre development of regional impact approved in 2006 on the Porters' land. Porter, the eldest son of the late James and Martha Porter. He died on July 1, at age 73. The Porters moved into Wesley Chapel in the 1940s, long before development hit the area. They bought land from the Rockefeller Land Trust for Wiregrass Ranch after being forced to sell the land now occupied by Zephyrhills Municipal Airport. The Porters were forced to sell that land at the beginning of World War II, to make way for an Army Air Force training station. In personal interviews and during the memorial, family and friends described the kind of man Porter was. They characterized him as a passionate fighter for justice, but also a patient listener. They said he was a deep thinker, a loving father and a faithful friend. Porter enjoyed single malt scotch and Little Debbie snack cakes. He had musical tastes that ranged from Pavarotti to Dave Brubeck, and was a man with his own sense of style. State Rep. Will Weatherford said he was 26 and making his first run for state office when he met Porter. Over the years, Weatherford had numerous roundtable chats with Porter, his brothers, Tom and Bill, and his son, J.D. The men didn't talk about what Wiregrass would look like in the next five to 10 years, but took a longer view.

Most of the funding for the research comes from the 2014 Farm Bill passed by Congress this past spring, with an additional $6.5 million coming from the USDA budget, officials said. It's spearheaded for research to combat huanglongbing, commonly known as citrus greening disease. HLB is a pathogen that is transmitted by insects that causes fruit to yellow and become bitter. Although it was first recognized in the 1920s, HLB wasn't found in Florida until the late 1990s, according to published reports. "USDA is committed to the fight against citrus greening, including making major research investments to counter this destructive disease," said USDA secretary Tom Vilsack, in a release. "The citrus industry and the thousands of jobs it supports are depending on groundbreaking research to neutralize this threat." Because there are wide differences in the occurrence and progression of HLB among the states, there are regional as well as national priorities for the Citrus Disease Research and Education Program, which will disperse research funds. Projects that are multistate, multi-institutional or trans-disciplinary will be considered first, officials said. Along with the research, the USDA's HLB Multi-Agency Coordination Group said it was funding three new projects to combat citrus greening. The first will commit $2 million to field test antimicrobials that have shown promise in combating HLB in laboratory and greenhouse studies. The second, also funded up to $2 million, will support the deployment of large-scale thermotherapy, since studies have shown heating a tree to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 48 hours can kill the HLB bacterium in the upper tree. That allows the tree to regain productivity, officials said. A third project will use $2.5 million to establish several model groves in cooperation with Florida Citrus Health Management Areas that would include systematic surveys, timely chemical treatments, new planting strategies, and the removal of dead and abandoned groves.

(3931) PUBLISHER'S COLUMN By D i ane Kortu s Publisher In the past few months I have used my column to boast about our recent industry audit, which reports that our newspapers have more readers than ever before. Today I want to tell you why that is. But first, a brief recap. According to this statistically valid research, The Laker/Lutz News is read by 79 percent of households in Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills or more than 64,000 people every week. This is a readership increase of 10 percentage points in the past five years an achievement we are quite proud of, especially when considering most newspapers are reporting fewer readers, reducing frequency, shrinking in size, or being discontinued altogether. So, what are we doing different here at The Laker/Lutz News to buck those downward trends? It comes down to three things. 1. In our audit, we added questions that asked readers what types of news and stories they wanted to read in their community paper. 2. We accepted the survey results as fact and began focusing more on topics readers ranked as most important. 3. We hired additional professional journalists who are experienced reporters, excellent writers and passionate about community journalism. It's this third element I want to write about today. After I became publisher in 2009, it took me a while to learn the importance of hiring the best reporters that I could find. I learned nothing is more important than experience and credibility when it comes to giving readers well-written, relevant stories that will engage them and keep them reading the paper. Good writing and fair reporting builds readership and loyalty because readers know they can trust what they read in our papers because our stories are accurate, balanced and relevant to their interests. Our journalists were accomplished writers and editors long before they joined The Laker/Lutz News. They know how to identify stories about interesting people and groups, how to pick through public meeting agendas to find stories buried between government hype, and perhaps most importantly, they know how to write well. Frankly, it is a bit unusual for a newspaper our size to have such accomplished journalists. So let me tell you a little about our team, beginning with Michael Hinman. Michael joined us last year as news editor. He has helped us add more serious hard and breaking news to our mix, and has brought daily news postings to our website. His background includes five years writing for community sections of The Tampa Tribune, including editor of the Temple Terrace News before it was shuttered. More recently, Michael was a real estate reporter at the Tampa Bay Business Journal. He first started covering Pasco County in 1997 when he was hired as a reporter for the Zephyrhills News, and later became its editor. The quality of his work received recognition over the weekend in Coral Gables, where Michael picked up two prestigious statewide journalism awards from the Florida Press Association. He received first place in best local government coverage for his outstanding coverage of the proposed elevated toll road along the State Road 54/56 corridor. He also took top honors in general news about a town hall last year hosted by U.S. Rep Gus Bilirakis, bringing to light major problems with flood insurance in our county. Next is Community Editor B.C. Manion, whose byline has graced our pages for four years. She is our most experienced journalist, coming to us after 23 years with The Tampa Tribune, where she covered everything from city government to schools to regional planning. But her love is writing about interesting people, organizations and places, and that's mostly what she does for us. B.C. has been the leader of our editorial team as we've worked hard to improve the quality and depth of our stories. B.C has received 11 awards from Florida Press Association while on our staff, and is one of the most respected journalists in Tampa Bay. Michael Murillo joined us as a freelance writer last summer. We liked his work so much that he became an employee in the fall, writing most of our sports stories and also feature stories about people and things to do. Michael also wrote editorials for the Tribune and spent many years as a reporter for local community newspapers. His wacky sense of humor makes him fun to work with, and his love for community journalism is contagious. Mary Rathman is the reason our pages rarely have a grammatical mistake or typo. She scours our sentences, looking for any misplaced comma or misspelled word. She has a sign on her desk that says, "I am silently correcting your grammar," and indeed, she is. Besides proofing our work, Mary compiles three columns that provide useful information for our readers: What's Happening, Health Notes and Chalk Talk. Mary is a respected and well-liked employee, who started working here more than 10 years ago. She also has served the company in other roles before using her talents to assist our editorial team. While our editorial team is dedicated to delivering a newspaper and website that our readers can turn to for pertinent information and lively stories, we know that much of our best work begins with ideas we get from readers like you. If you have an idea you'd like to share, please call (813) 909-2800, or email us at email@example.com COURTESY OF KAREL ORTIZ-TAVAREZ Mi chael H i nman, new s ed i tor of The Laker/Lutz New s s how s the two troph i e s he won for f i r s t place f i n is he s at the Flor i da Pre ss A ss oc i at i on Better Weekly New s paper Conte s t i n Coral Gable s la s t week.

Accepting New Patients www.LakerLutzNews.com July 23, 2014 5 The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Laker/Lutz News has earned two top awards from the Florida Press Association. During its annual conference July 11 in Coral Gables, the association awarded The Laker news editor Michael Hinman with two first place prizes in local government reporting and general news. The local government award was based on a series of stories in 2013 about the now-cancelled elevated toll road project that had been planned over a 33-mile stretch between Zephyrhills and New Port Richey along the State Road 54/56 corridor. The general news award was based on coverage of a flood insurance town hall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis last December. The Laker competed in the top circulation category in the state, against similar weeklies with circulation of 15,000 or more "Community newspapers are more important than ever before, because many times they are the only place you will find the stories important to you," said Diane Kortus, publisher of The Laker. "Our reporters deliver those stories each week, and we're proud to get this recognition at a statewide level." Judges called Hinman's coverage of the elevated toll road a "well-researched series of articles" that "looked at pitfalls of similar projects, and presented the pros and cons of the road." In reporting about a town hall meeting hosted by Bilirakis about rising flood insurance rates, judges said Hinman had a "nice use of observation to capture the mood at the meeting, Groans, interruptions, occasional applause." Judges also noted Hinman's "concise explanation of the impact of the Reform Act." The Florida Press Association is a statewide organization that promotes weekly and daily newspapers. Its annual Better Weekly Newspaper Contest recognizes strong reporting, photography, online work and graphical artwork among all its member newspapers in Florida. Since 2011, The Laker/Lutz News has won 20 awards from the Florida Press Association, reflecting its continued dedication to community news. The Laker takes two awards at conference By B.C. Manion email@example.com If you've been outdoors lately, no doubt you've observed that Florida's steamy days of summer have arrived with a vengeance. You also may have noticed there are a lot more kids riding bicycles in the street, splashing around in pools, and hanging off equipment at the local playground. The roads are busier, too. Cars and trucks snake toward the beach, and families have packed up to hit the road for vacation. There are a lot more people firing up their backyard grills and having picnics at parks, too. Summer and its pastimes can offer a pleasant break, but is also can lead to illnesses or injuries, prompting unwanted trips to the local emergency room. There are ways, though, to lower your risk of getting sick or injured. Three physicians from Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel and St. Joseph's Hospital-North shared their observations about the types of summer injuries that typically arrive at their emergency departments, and they offered suggestions to help people avoid the need for medical care. On the road "We see increased motor vehicle accidents," said Dr. Javier Gonzalez, assistant medical director of the emergency department at the Zephyrhills hospital. Wear a seat belt, he added, because it reduces injuries and save lives. It's important to safeguard children, too. Be sure they have the appropriate type of protection, such as car seats or child-restraint chairs, he said. Head injuries tend to increase in the summer, too, because of greater use of bicycles, skateboards and in-line skates, Gonzalez said. Be sure to wear helmets and make sure they fit properly, he said. Also, be sure the chinstrap is strapped beneath your chin to help protect the side of your head. Use wrist guards to help prevent injuries, too. "A lot of these people wear helmets, but when they fall, they put their hands down first, so they get a lot of wrist injuries," Gonzalez said. In the water The importance of water safety cannot be overstated. "In Florida, a lot of people have pools. Make sure they have gates," Gonzalez said. Constant vigilance is required when children are in or around water, he added. "Don't take a break to get on the phone. I hear that all of the time, I just went out for a second to speak to somebody or to pick up the phone.' Before they know it, two minutes have passed by and the child is dead at the bottom of the pool." At public pools, be sure the child is within view of the lifeguard, Gonzalez said. Drownings at the beach often result from swimmers getting caught in riptides, so be sure to swim across the current, not against it. "Always wear a life vest, as well, if you are doing activities like jet skiing," he said. It's also wise to do so when you're cruising in a boat. Besides the potential for drowning accidents, there are other risks associated with the water, Cordero said. Diving accidents can cause serious neck injuries, she said. When someone gets hurt diving, it's important to get them out of the water to make sure they're breathing, said Dr. Katrina Cordero, associate medical director of the emergency room at St. Joseph's HospitalNorth. Then, make sure they keep their neck still until help arrives. E njoying the outdoors When you're having a cookout or picnic, pay attention to how long the food has been sitting out, Gonzalez said. Some foods must be refrigerated, and if they are left out too long, it can cause people to become ill. Store uncooked meats in separate coolers to avoid issues with cross contamination. Dr. Michael Longley Dr. Katrina Cordero Dr. Javier Gonzalez FILE PHOTO Going to the beach is a fun summer pastime, but three local doctors want to make sure that trip doesn't end up in the emergency room.

M an i on firstname.lastname@example.org Students across Florida, as well as in Pasco and Hillsborough counties posted gains on statewide end-of-course, or EOC, exams. Scores improved in all of the assessment areas in Florida, with the biggest gain being a 10 percent improvement in U.S. History. Pasco has one of 13 school districts in the state that posted gains in all four EOC assessments, with its biggest improvement being an 8-point increase on the U.S. History assessment, Florida Education commissioner Pam Stewart reported. The passing rate for Pasco students taking the test for the first time improved on all four assessments, improving by 2 percent in Algebra I; 2 percent in biology; 3 percent in geometry and 8 percent in U.S. History. Hillsborough's scores improved in two of the four assessment areas, with a 14 percent percentage gain in U.S. History and a 4 percent gain in Algebra I. Pasco students outperformed the state in the percentage of students achieving a passing score or higher in 2014, except for Algebra I. Some notable scores from Pasco schools include a 5-percent bump in the passing rate on the Algebra I assessment at Land O' Lakes High School, a 7-percent gain by Wiregrass Ranch High School students on the Biology I assessment, and an 8-percent improvement on the same assessment at Zephyrhills High School. Both Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass also posted big improvements in the passing rate on the geometry assessment. Wesley Chapel's passing rate improved by 22 percent. Wiregrass Ranch boosted its passing rate by 13 percent. Students at both Zephyrhills and Sunlake high schools improved their passing rate by 6 percent, with Sunlake achieving a 73 percent passing rate and Zephyrhills boosting its passing rate to 60 percent. Wesley Chapel principal Carin Nettles was delighted with her school's results. "I am thrilled about our scores," she said. "We are very proud of the work our math department has done." The principal credits collaboration among faculty members during professional learning community meetings. Teachers are sharing "the best common lessons and assessments for our students," she said. Teachers also have provided tutoring to help their students succeed. Superintendent Kurt Browning said in a release that because the scores "reflect what we are teaching in the classroom, end-ofcourse exams present a much more accurate picture of our students' learning during this time of transition than do highstakes tests" like the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

She learned about it through Tim Mitchell, who was president of the Zephyrhills chamber at the time, and president of The Samaritan Project as well. "I met a lot of unique people, coming into the office, applying for assistance," Scheckler said. She felt compelled to get involved. "My dad is a minister. I was raised that we were to help those less fortunate," Scheckler said. "Not to turn our backs on them, not to stereotype them, but to help them." The Zephyrhills woman understands how it feels to struggle. "When my husband and I moved up in 1982, we did it for a reason. We were losing everything," she said. Her husband, a semitrailer driver had been through two major gas wars. "This was our fresh start," Scheckler said. "That's why this project is so important to me. I have been there. I know firsthand what it is to lose everything." The Samaritan Project has been helping people since 2008. It operates on donations and fundraisers. "We assist people with past due rent and utilities," Scheckler said. The organization keeps its operational costs low. "We do not pay rent. We have one overhead (cost), that is our Internet, because as you know in this day of technology, everything relies on the Internet." The project has spent more than two years in the St. Joseph's Catholic Church Education Building in Zephyrhills in 500 square feet of space, including the bathroom and air-conditioning room. "My private office is the bathroom," she said, noting whenever she has to make a private call to a landlord or utility company or somewhere else, she steps into the bathroom to do it. But the organization is moving to much larger quarters at 5722 Eighth St., in Zephyrhills. Last week, the Samaritan Project signed a two-year lease, rent-free lease for the 1,400-square-foot home, thanks to the generosity of a local couple. In addition to its own fundraising efforts, the organization received a $76,000 Emergency Solutions Grant earlier this year from the Florida Department of Children and Families and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. "With this grant, we are able to get them into housing," Scheckler said. "We can pay their first month's rent, we can pay their electric deposit, water deposit, the security deposit." There is a drawback, though. The organization must raise matching funds for the grant money it spends, Scheckler said. The grant also requires applicants to fill out a form that's about 20 pages long. "We don't make the rules. We strictly abide by the rules," she said. Still, the project is thrilled to be able to help more people, Scheckler said. The grant is aimed at preventing homelessness and getting people without housing back into homes. Sixty percent of the grant is earmarked for getting people back into housing, she said, and the need is great. "We had 151 homeless, registered students, just in Zephyrhills," Scheckler said. At any given time, there are 1,500 to 2,000 registered homeless students in Pasco County. One of the biggest challenges is finding a place for these people to live thanks to past evictions and credit issues, she said. "Landlords won't step up." "If you know landlords who own property, ask them to trust us," Scheckler said. "Our organization is backing these people. We follow them for six months. I do a case management every 30 days on everyone that we assist." Despite challenges, Scheckler said her volunteer work has moments of sheer joy. "The biggest thing is, when you walk up to this client and you go, Here's your lease,'" she said, with her voice breaking and tears in her eyes, "I do get real emotional." A couple of weeks ago, the organization moved a young woman and her father into an apartment. The woman has special needs and the pair had been living in a truck. "Habitat for Humanity stepped up and donated the furniture," Scheckler said. "When I walked them in the apartment, I told (them), This is yours. This is all yours. The furniture. The TV. Everything.' How do you put a price on something like that?" While many youths are couch-surfing to keep a roof over their heads, there also are elderly people who are in desperate need, Scheckler added. "We have an 87-year-old woman who couldn't pay her water bill. She was living off of pool water, drinking water out of a pool," she said. "Did we step up and help her? Absolutely." After telling the group about The Samaritan Project's mission, Scheckler went into her fundraising mode. "Any of you women in here wear jewelry?" she asked, to set up a pitch for a fundraiser planned for Aug. 10. She also urged them to get involved in the Harvest Festival, another fundraiser on Nov. 1, or to hit the links on Feb. 7, at its annual golf benefit. Scheckler frequently speaks at churches and civic organizations to drum up support for the cause. "What we really, really, really need is support of the community," she said. "Our motto is Working together to make a better community.' That's what we want to do." And Scheckler said she'll do whatever she can to make that happen. "I am not too proud to beg," she said.

HELPING from page 1 "I never knew a man who could speak less and say more than Don Porter," Weatherford said. "In my business, you get to meet a lot of families that have very large landholdings. It's not rare for a family to have thousands of acres there's a lot them in the state of Florida," Weatherford said. "But I've never met a family, I've never met a man until I met Don that was so keenly more focused on the future of his community than on how much money he would make off of it." While Porter was proud of the accomplishments in the development arena, he would resist being credited as the leader or the patriarch of the family, J.D. Porter said. That role belonged to Don's father, James Porter. J.D. Porter said his father, his uncles and the rest of the extended Porter family have shared a collective vision and a collective will for what has been done so far, and for the foundation that has been laid for future achievements. "Development was a very important part of his life," J.D. Porter said. "But if you had a top five list, I'm not sure it would make it. "At No. 1 was family. It wasn't just my mom, my sister and myself," he said, but his dad also cared tremendously for his parents, his brothers and their families. Porter's daughter, Quinn Miller, recalled a father who taught her how to ride a bicycle, accompanied her to father-daughter dances, and was her biggest fan during her softball days. Porter was quite the athlete himself. He held a baseball state record for years after striking out 20 of the 21 batters he faced during a championship. He attended Ole Miss on a baseball scholarship, and he used the signing bonus he received from the Houston Colt 45s to buy his family's home. Miller said her dad taught her to think for herself. She remembers being frustrated by him when she would want to commiserate over a problem or disappointment, and he wouldn't let her or offer her advice. Instead, he listened and then asked her questions. She now understands that he wanted her to arrive at her own solutions. "He had a way of offering perspective by forcing introspection, not (offering) his opinion," Miller said. Porter's cousin, Mike Gramling, and Porter's friends Will Roberts, Doug Manson and Tom Touchton, also spoke at the memorial. When the Porters arrived in Wesley Chapel, there was no electricity and the family lived in a moonshiner's cabin, Gramling said. Porter's mother prepared meals on a Coleman stove. Roberts said they used to joke that Porter was "sweater-rich." "He had more sweaters than Bill Cosby," Roberts said. He recalled a time when Porter took him, his brother and J.D. to a basketball game at the University of South Florida Sun Dome. Porter was wearing a beret, a sweater, brown leather pants and black Italian zippered ankle boots. "Nowadays, the sight of man dressed like that with three young boys might be cause for an Amber Alert. But that was Don in all of his glory," Roberts said, drawing a roar of laughter from the nearly 240 at the memorial. Manson was in his late 20s when he met Porter. It was obvious, he said, that Porter's life was centered on his family. The two men never had a conversation that didn't begin with an update on their families. Porter was a multi-dimensional man, with many interests, said Touchton, who knew Porter for about 60 years. One of his favorite poets was Lawrence Ferlinghetti, of the beat poet generation. Porter especially liked Ferlinghetti's "I am Waiting," which repeated this phrase, "I am perpetually awaiting the rebirth of wonder." "I suggest Don has to wait no longer," Touchton said, "because in leaving us, he has finally found his rebirth of wonder." PORTER from page 1 agreed that we need to be able to respond to the needs of our community and our patients," McKinnon said. "We had a huge expansion of our ER a couple years ago, and the OR was the next obvious step." For McKinnon, it's hard to believe sometimes how much has happened to the 120-bed hospital in just the past year, with the new name, new owners and expansion. But one thing she's been proud of is how the community has embraced those changes, especially putting "Dade City" back in the hospital's name for the first time since the 1990s. "One of the benefits that we have in going through a rebranding is to be able to retain the name which the hospital has been recognized for in the community," McKinnon said. "Lending ourselves to the Bayfront name in brand recognition has been wonderful. And to be able to retain the name Dade City was very welcomed by our community." Upgrades to the surgical units won't finish McKinnon's wish list for future improvements. There is still a lot more she's looking to do to help Bayfront Health Dade City keep up with the ever-changing medical environment. "We already have a lot of ongoing projects, like the redesign of our patient rooms, and the redesign of our orthopedic joint center," she said. "We need to be prepared for more growth and how we're going to respond to that. And because we care about our patients and the community, we're prepared." HOSPITAL from page 1

All three doctors said drinking water is important to avoid dehydration. "There's a misconception that you can actually keep up with your hydration once you're outside, or once you're doing the activity," said Dr. Michael Longley, medical director of the emergency department at the Wesley Chapel hospital. "The reality is you really need to pre-hydrate. Drink a lot either the night before or a couple of hours before you're going to be outside. "You're losing water with every breath you take, you're losing water with the heat itself. You're losing water with sweating and you're losing water with the activity that you're doing. It's compounded and there's just no way to keep up if the tank isn't full to begin with," Longley said. How much you need to drink varies based on your size. An adult should drink a liter or two before they go out. A child should drink about half of that, Longley said. To help people drink enough water, Longley offers this piece of advice: "I tend to tell kids and adults, alike, to add a little extra salt to their meal. It drives the thirst. It helps the muscle function and it helps you to hold in a little of the water, as well." People who suffer from heat cramps, heat stroke and heat exhaustion haven't hydrated before they go outside, Longley said. Often, people don't realize how hot they are because they've been out in the sun for hours, take a dip and feel a cool breeze. Sunburn is a problem, too, St. Joe's Cordero said. People often underestimate the intensity of the sun here. "They fall asleep on the beach," she said, and when they wake up, they have painful sunburn. The same thing can happen when people are out working in the yard and haven't applied sunscreen, she said. They get busy and forget how much sun exposure they've had. Cordero also offered this tip to avoid becoming dehydrated: Carry a bottle of water or Gatorade around with you, to remind yourself to drink. Some people like to quench their thirst with a beer or another alcoholic drink. "Beer is OK," Cordero said. But "don't let it be your only means of hydration." Rockets' red glare The increased amount of recreation during summer months tends to result in more people visiting the ER with injuries, Longley said. "We see a lot more broken bones." It's also a time of year when there's an uptick in fireworks injuries, which are typically unique injuries that require expert medical attention. "Explosions can cause all sorts of tissue damage locally," Longley said. "Particles can be inhaled. They can be embedded in the eye." The injuries can get complicated quickly. "Something that seems simple can be way more complex a few hours later," Longley said. Sometimes the steps taken immediately after a fireworks injury can make a big difference, Cordero said. If a fingertip is blown off, for example, it's important to try to find the fingertip, she said. It should be placed in a cloth that has been dampened with water, placed in a plastic bag, and then all put into a larger bag that has some ice in it. "You don't want any direct contact with ice," Cordero said. "That could cause some tissue damage." SUMMER from page 5 Tips for a safer summer Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Start drinking water before you head out for the day, and keep drinking it throughout the day to stay hydrated. If you're grilling, be sure to cook your meats thoroughly. Also, do not allow children to be near hot grills. If you're having a gathering, be sure to keep foods that need refrigeration in coolers until shortly before you need them. Keep them away from direct sunlight and don't leave them out for more than an hour. Wear helmets while riding bikes, skateboarding or rollerblading. Wear wrist guards, too. Be vigilant when there are children around water. A happy gathering can turn tragic within minutes. Wear sunscreen to avoid sunburn. Be sure to reapply it if you decided to take a dip in a pool or at the beach. Wear life jackets on boats and seat belts in cars.

It's a step back in time with the sound of the horses and buggies trotting down the road. The beautiful Amish flower and vegetable gardens, the outstanding Amish craftsmanship, bike paths, home cooking, the largest flea market in the area, watching the baby Clydesdale ponies romp and play, and just the peacefulness of being here, is beyond words. Ernie and I are working as camp hosts here at the Shipshewana South Park Campground for the entire summer. Duties are not bad with mowing, plumbing, some electrical work, greeting campers, helping them park their rigs, and answering questions like where to go and what to do. We work 24 hours a week in return for full hookup of our motorhome. It's such a pleasure meeting people from all over the United States. Shipshewana is famous for the huge flea market, the cleanliness of the area, and that wonderful Amish food. At nighttime when laying in bed, you can hear the clip clop of the horse and buggy trotting down the road. There are two big event centers that host all kinds of musicals and celebrities such as singers like The Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Greenwood, Crystal Gayle, The Texas Tenors, Sawyer Brown, and many others. Entertainment goes through Dec. 31. The flea market is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Wednesday also is a huge auction day at the flea market. A couple of things that made us smile were an Amish buggy pulling a boat down the road, the tiny ponies, and the little Amish children learning how to steer the buggy getting them ready for school next fall. Another beautiful sight is watching the farmers in the fields with the team of horses plowing and planting for the season. While Ernie has been hard at work, I planted a garden. There is watermelon, cantaloupe, yellow and green onions, lettuce, cabbage, green beans, tomatoes, radishes, zucchini, eggplant, and some flowers. I've found out already that the rabbits like the lettuce, too, so I guess I will have to share it with them. There are three other camp hosts here in the park, and we share the responsibility of keeping the park in top shape.
