Im not sure what hill is being referred to but Im told its a big one. I think its rela tive to ones perspective. Nonetheless, times like these often cause (me) us to re-assess look where we are, maybe take a look back and certainly look forward. some of my patients say theres nothing golden about them. Such statements, I think, are de livered with tongue-in-cheek or maybe with a little bitter/sweet, because despite changes of appearance or the number of aches and pains they are usually said with a smile. are suppose to start but I know Im headed straight toward them. And, being a healthcare worker I cant help but observe a difference lar pain to those who do not. Indeed, there are many factors contributing to dysfunction: genetics, lifestyle, occupation, history of trau ma, accidents or disease, but the one thing I common scapegoat. Im told I guess Im just getting old or I guess Ill just have to accept the fact this comes with age. True, habits and lifestyle can take their toll as the years go by but age is just the timeframe, not the cause. FACT our bodies respond to the forces put on them, i.e. lifting weights increases muscle mass, aerobic activities challenge the cardiovascular system and thereby increas ing stamina or endurance, and stretching pro FACT A sedentary lifestyle is a life with out such forces and can result in atrophy of muscle, decreased endurance and general stiffness. Causes of the sedentary lifestyle or enced several if not all. For me they have in cluded injury, work schedule, family commit ment, discouragement and soreness after 1-2 just plain laziness or procrastination. If you have a heavy work schedule learn your desk, driving, or waiting for copies. Ive learned this myself and have helped many others who never realized how easy it can be. If you have night and day family com mitments get the family involved and make movement a family event. I too have resorted to this if only wrestling with my children, go ing for a walk with my wife or chasing the dog among other things. jury consult your physical therapist. It may your current condition, or you compensating due to an underlying problem such as muscle imbalance or a stiff joint. These things can be easily treated no matter your age. Regardless of why you stopped moving now is the time to start or start again. Our healthcare system is changing and people are living longer. Those I see living true golden years are those who are moving and when they cant move for some reason they are get help and keep going.

Young marrieds have to make sev eral adjustments when planning for two. They depend on each other for support havent considered before. In merging two households and perhaps two careers, couples need to consider how they will protect their assets. When you buy homeowners insur ance, dont be surprised when the insured value of the house is less than the market value. Theres no need to insure the land the house is on. The insured value needs home if there is a major disaster. Be sure the coverage keeps pace with additions or major improvements that increase the value of the home. Coverage will cost less if you set the deductible as high as you can afford. A standard homeowner policy in cludes a limit on personal possessions, so to cover high value items. Merging two households presents a good opportu nity to do a home inventory. This helps couples understand what their insurance coverage needs are, and provides have a record of what to claim if a real disaster strikes. When arranging homeowners insur ance, one important decision involves replacement cost versus actual cash value coverage. Replacement cost pays the dollar amount needed to replace a damaged item with one of similar kind and quality. Actual cash value covers the amount needed to replace the item, minus depreciation. When you start having children, youll likely acquire more belongings such as additional TVs, home comput ers, or other electronic equipment. Make sure your homeowners insurance keeps pace with your growing family and pos protection so that the homeowners insur ance automatically rises with property values in your region. Safety features, such as alarm systems, smoke detectors, strong doors and deadbolts, not only keep the family safe, they save money because they reduce the likelihood of insurance claims. If you plan to add a family dog, check with your insurer before bringing home an aggressive breed. If you have a backyard pool, trampoline or swing set, consider increasing your liability cover age through an umbrella policy in case someone is injured on your property. certain you have the absolute best rate A June Wedding & Homeowners Insurance The Department of Environmental Protections Anastasia State Park would like to invite everyone out to the park for Beach Bash 2013, the 20th Annual event.

A personalized plan of care teaches and educates you for continued improvement after returning home. seasoned one, there are a few tips that all buyers should consider. Before you begin your search you should. 1) Develop a Wish List The list should each item, mark whether it is a must have or a could live without. This list should include things like number of bedrooms and bathrooms, location, school zone, etc 2) How Much Can You Afford Determine how much money you can and/or are willing to spend on a home. Any good lender will be able to determine your borrowing power and debt-toincome ratio with ease. Additionally, there are some great websites which can do this for you as well (Google how much house can I afford). 3) Find a Realtor Share your wish list and your budget with your realtor. A realtor can help will also make sure you are progressing toward your goal of home ownership. 4) Get Pre-Approved A pre-approval letter is almost always required to accompany an offer. Having this letter helps assure the seller that you mean business. Furthermore, there are a number of loan programs available to home buyers. Make sure you understand the pros and cons to loan, or a more traditional conventional loan. Make sure you know the terms as well as your options. 5) Research the Homes/Areas You should be researching the homes, areas, schools, etc in which you are interested. If you dont know the answer, ask your realtor (e.g. What school is the home zoned for? Is there city water? Is there an HOA fee? How much are the CDD Fees?). home you want, make an offer. Start the process of negotiating. I have seen too many people (including me) miss out on a good deal because they waited too long. 7) Know your Contract Make sure you understand your contract and deadlines outlined within. If you have any questions, ask your realtor. 8) Always get an Inspection Have a professional inspect your home. He/she will be able to determine if the home has issues (e.g. roof leak, hot spots, wood rot, etc). Remember, if you are considering buying or selling a home or land, and would like to discuss your options, please contact me anytime at (904) Will Russell is a realtor with Endless Summer Realty.

The staff and students of The Dance Company are currently preparing for their 20th anniversary Established in 1993, The Dance Company was founded by Artistic Director Carole Dickens, who now leads the dance department at Murray Middle School Center for the Arts. Dickens recalls the early years of the studio saying, We started the school with Monika Macbeth as our master ballet instructor and were one taught by Ellie Potts Barrett. At the time, it was generally only offered in colleges. Barrett and the school, and they are currently still master instructors at The Dance Company today. It seems like just yesterday that we had a single studio in a strip plaza, Dickens recollects. Today, The Dance Company has grown to nearly 300 students and is now located at the Cultural Arts Center overlooking St. Augustine Beach. Current Artistic Director Stephanie Burkhardt was one of the original students at the studio and recalls the transformations the studio has seen. The common denominator throughout the years has been the quality of instructors at the studio and the passion they bring to the art of dance. I am very proud to now be working alongside the people who sparked this passion in me. Burkhardt is not the only alumnus to return to the studio where she trained. Every year, the studio continues to welcome back alumni, many of who return to teach classes as master instructors themselves. Others are now bringing their own children to take classes at the studio. After producing dozens of concerts for thousands of viewers, The Dance Company does not seem to be slowing down any time soon. With an original holiday production scheduled for later this year and multiple guest artists scheduled for the summer, 2013 is sure to be a memorable year at The Dance Company.
