OUR FANTASTIC COLUMNISTS
By: Dan Roberts / Roberts Rules
Are you that totally useless?” my Rana
You know those people that can read
instructions or figure out any mechanical or technical issues? Those
individuals that can recognize where the problem lies and methodically
work their way to a successful conclusion?
I am not one of those guys.
In fact, if left on my own, I would probably still have a flip-phone and
need to get out of my recliner and change the TV channels manually.
I concede (without any shame or embarrassment) that I am a
“mechanical idiot.” To be labelled as “technology-challenged” would
be an understatement.
My “do-it-yourself” abilities consist solely of changing a light bulb,
or perhaps hanging a picture on a wall. My work tools consist of a
hammer and a screwdriver (and who the hell is Phillips?). That’s it.
Placing anything else in my hands is a danger to anyone near me - and
especially to yours truly.
Water or pipe issues? Call a plumber I tell Rana. Need to hang up
shelfs or hook up a television? Find a dependable handyman.
Have a problem with the computer? Smack it a few times and if that
does not work (it never does, by the way) find an IT (whatever that
But don’t rely on me I constantly warn Rana. And if (more like,
when) she does, the fault and consequences are all hers.
Thankfully for this publisher, I have an “Ace-in-the-Hole”, a “Mr.
Fix-It.” A guy who I bow down and thank every chance I get for keeping
my computer connected to the internet or making sure my big-screen
television can get ESPN.
He is our Vegas Voice Bill Blurb columnist, my “Bronx Brother” and
best buddy, Bill Caserta. No doubt about it, he is my savoir and hero.
How he has the patience to put up with my “life-threatening” issues
and my unconditional lack of
basic “manly” skills is a testament
as to what a great friend he is.
I cannot begin to tell you how
many times he saved me from
throwing stuff against the walls
or smashing equipment on the
floor (It’s definitely broken now
I “correctly” scream). And, luckily
for me, he understands that my
Bronx language is NOT directed at him.
“No need to get upset” Bill will calmly explain. It’s really quite
simple. Think logically, Dan. You just need to…”
“Fix it.” I scream. “Just fix the @$&*# thing before I heave it out
the damn window!”
“All you needed to do was plug it in… or double click…” Bill will
politely say as my temper tantrum goes on and on. No question, I (and
Rana) are very lucky to depend on him.
So, yes, I admit that if I ever appeared on the TV show “Survivor”
I’d be dead in 20 minutes. But I do disagree with Rana’s exasperated
claim that her PILL (partner in love & life) is “totally useless.” After all,
I know Bill’s phone number.

One Last Thought
By: Rana Goodman / On My Soapbox
Before we begin celebrating Father’s Day,
please allow me one final word about
Mother’s Day. It was another season of getting
past that day without the woman who was such an integral part of my
life - my mom who taught me so much.
A woman I wanted to emulate to the extent that I was constantly
in hot water each time I walked into my Home Economics class. I
couldn’t resist telling the teacher that “my mother said custom made
garments were not stitched that way.”
Or that, “I would prefer to cook dishes the way my mother
does.” Suffice to say, the teacher, Mrs. Schroeder, would have loved to
see me vanish from her sight each day.
My mother was a 4’10” power house. She was funny and smart;
smart enough to make my dad believe he was the head of our family
for the 50 years they were together.
However, when that one eyebrow of hers went higher than the other,
and when her jaw set firmly into a deadpan glare, my dad and I both
knew to shut up and give her whatever she wanted.
My mother was a dress maker to titled ladies in her younger days.
When she tired of that, she opened one small shop in the heart of
London. The shop grew over the years into a small chain of shops
She was an astute business woman with an uncanny knack for
picking the right location and making it work. I remember as a kid
watching her argue with my dad over a lease she signed for a shop in
the English town of Peckham without talking to him about it first.
I was with her the day she signed that lease. My mom kept raving
about the location being in front of a busy bus stop and how wonderful
I have a photograph of that shop in my bedroom. It turned out to
be a true money-maker because she created a window display that
revolved with one of her dress creations. Anyone waiting for the bus
couldn’t help but stare at what my mom made.
Inside the shop was a selection of affordable copies of “that gown”
that any working lady could purchase. My wonderful mom “knocked it
out of the ball park” with that shop.
Not much changed after they immigrated to the United States.
When my dad decided to open a Las Vegas shop in the late 50s, it
was my mother who picked the location - right across the street from
It was 4 th and Fremont Street. They opened the first credit jewelry
shop in this city, Gee’s Jewelers. It thrived until the late 1990’s when
they both retired.
Gosh, how I miss them!
If you want to know what prompted me to get so involved with
guardianship, look no further than my parents. If anyone had tried to
touch either of them - well, I would most likely be sitting in jail now.

STCI 151233 Fmc My Generation June VEGAS VOICE AD
By: Beverly Washburn / Hollywood Memories
thought I’d write this month about a dear
I friend of mine - Jeannie Russell.
I’m sure you will remember the popular TV
series “Dennis The Menace” which ran from 1959 - 1963 on CBS. The
TV show was based on the Hank Ketchum comic strip.
Jeannie played the role of “Margaret”, Dennis’s playmate. You’ll
remember her as the little girl with the horn-rimmed glasses and
Jeannie auditioned for the role and of course was hoping to get the
part. In the casting business, they have what is known as a “call back.”
These are the actors who are narrowed down as the producer’s
favorites. Often you will have a “call back” (more than once) and have
to “audition” again; sometimes reading with the main star of the show.
This was an important role and there were countless girls all vying
for the part. At her last call back, she (along with the others) had to read
with Jay North, who played the part of Dennis.
Jeannie always credits Jay with the reason she got picked because
after reading with her, he turned to the producers and said, “I like
Jeannie!” It was important that Dennis and Margaret had a connection
working together, so Jeannie got the part.
She probably would have anyway, as Jeannie was perfect in the role,
but having Jay on her side helped them make their final decision. To
this day and after all these years, she and Jay are good friends.
Jeannie and I didn’t know each other as children as I am 7 years
Dennis The Menace
older than she. We
never really ran in
the same circle.
Over the years
and I met at
party’s etc. I was impressed with her from the very beginning. She is
truly one of the nicest people in the business and I feel blessed to call
her my friend.
We now do radio re-enactments together and she too is an animal
lover like I am. Jeannie is also a very well-respected chiropractor.
I also met Jay at one of the autograph shows. He too was as warm as
he could be. Jay is retired from show business and wants nothing more
to do with being an actor, because for him, some of his memories were
not his favorite.
As for Jeannie and myself, we both LOVE the business and I am
grateful that I can now call her my friend.
Until next time, remember: A smile is an inexpensive way to improve

The Destination Isn’t Important - Just Enjoy the Trip
By: Vicki Wentz / Vicki’s Voice
To those of you who know me, it will come as
no surprise to hear that I fell down the steps
to my garage yesterday.
For some people, living in the physical world is
no problem. These are people with whom I have nothing in common.
Then, there are those of us who throw ourselves into life - or traffic
- without a second thought. We are the ones who can’t run or throw a
ball - and certainly not at the same time.
When I was just three, I wanted to see if any birds were in our
birdbath, but I was too short to see over the edge, so I reached up to feel
around, hoping I could catch one. Not only were there no birds, but the
heavy stone bowl of the birdbath fell on my head.
My mother rushed me to the emergency room, where I met doctors
and nurses I would come to know well over the years. Broken arms
and legs, broken or almost-severed fingers, falling out of trees, down
stairs, monkey bars, roller skating into folding chairs, dropping a pot
of boiling water, and gripping an exploding glass hurricane - my life
has been full.
Then, recently, I fell down the garage steps. I was trying to carry
a large box containing a new, semi-heavy juicer, which I’ve moved
around the house for weeks before realizing I have no room for a juicer
in my life. I’d rather just eat the carrot… I’m just saying.
I held the box
with one hand
because I intended
to hold the railing
with the other. So,
I stepped down
onto the first step,
reaching for the
railing, but the
box knocked me
off balance and I fell, watching the cement floor rise up to meet me.
When the crashing and cussing was over, I was on the floor of the
garage, having slammed my head so hard that I definitely saw birdies
The dogs came running, never wanting to be left out of sensational
home accidents and barked appreciatively at me as I laid there
inventorying body parts. Today I’m covered with so much gorgeous
bluish-purple that I’m thinking of dyeing a purse and shoes to match.
On the upside, this serves as a timely reminder to all that most
accidents occur in the home. That is, most accidents occur in MY home
- so if I were you, I wouldn’t visit.

The Star Spangled Banner
By: Yvonne Cloutier / Musical Moments
have been intrigued by the origin of the Star
I Spangled Banner and how it became our
national anthem. Who was Francis Scott Key, the
writer of this descriptive poetry?
Legend claims he was a young poet watching the 1814 battle at Fort
McHenry; a fort built on the Baltimore Harbor. In fact, Key watched
from a British ship, on which he was held for political reasons. He was
with his mulatto friend, Beverly Randolph Snow, and a 19 year old
slave, John Arthur Bowen.
To his surprise, despite the continual bombing, the next morning the
fort remained, with the American flag flowing above it. The British left.
Thus, his inspiration for the poem, which he excitedly, quickly wrote
on the back of an envelope, continuing his composition at an inn the
next day. He named it, Defense of Fort McHenry.
The popular poem was eventually renamed The Star Spangled
Banner (SSB). It was later set to music of a British men’s social club,
written by John Stafford Smith.
The SSB was officially used by the Navy in 1889. In 1910, President
Woodrow Wilson declared it should be played at official events. In 1931,
Congress made it the national anthem.
It took precedence over American the Beautiful and later, God
Bless America. And the 3 rd verse of the SSB is rarely sung due to its civil
Interestingly, Key was not a
poet and he never wrote another
published poem. He was a
conflicted and contradictory
lawyer; a product of the times.
Francis Scott Key was born
August 1, 1779 to a wealthy
plantation clan. He was home
educated until ten and then on to
public school and college, returning to practice law.
He married, had 11 children, and set up his legal practice in
Georgetown in 1802. Key later became District Attorney of Washington
He prided himself as a humanitarian and was often called “the
black’s” lawyer. Yet he was the scion of Maryland’s slave-holding
He believed in the abolition of slavery, saying that slavery was full of
sin and a “bed of torture” however, he advocated to protect the white
man’s right to own property in people. He claimed it was a constitutional
He died in 1843 never knowing his impact on American history.

Golf Course Rating
By: Mike Landry / Golf Fore Ever
What does a “Golf Course Rating” mean
and how is it done? Let me provide a
quick overview of the system. Golf courses are
rated when new and not to exceed ten years.
What is a slope? The simple answer is that it
represents the difficulty of a golf course to a bogey golfer.
The number tells the golfer how difficult the golf course is for a
bogey player (17.5-22.4) relative to the difficulty of the course for the
scratch player. Courses in the US are rated from 55-155 with an average
slop of 120.
How is a course rated? People in every locale that have been trained
under the USGA course rating system volunteer in their respective area
to perform these tasks. I know one such person at MacDonald Ranch
who is such a volunteer.
What is taken into consideration for rating a golf course: the length
of the tees to the center of the green, dog legs, narrow fairways, hard
pan, deep roughs, gulley’s, speed of greens, trees, water hazards and so
Do Affirmations Really Work?
By: Ali Guggenheim / Psychic Phenomenon
There are many different approaches to using
affirmations. Some disciplines tell you to
stand in front of a mirror and repeat your positive
affirmation a hundred times a day, for a minimum of six months.
Others tell you to repeat them three times a day for five minutes each
time, or to journal them twice daily. Others tell you to hang post-it
notes all over as reminders.
It seems that the point that’s being missed here is that, although
every desire begins with a vision, it is not the parroting of them. Rather
it’s our core beliefs that run our lives.
You can state your desires until you are blue in the face, but they
will never come to fruition so long as your inner voice retorts negative
responses to the topics that you are desperately trying to affirm.
Nothing Yet, But...
By: Linda Bateman-Gomez / Timeless Beauty
So as promised in last month’s article, I
shelled out the money to try the new, gonnamake-me-look-20-again,
Hanacure mask. It
received a ton of hype after Drew Barrymore
posted her mid-mask treatment pictures.
I admit, I was drawn in by the claims. I gave it a whirl.
There are of course many face masks on the market, from the $2.00
drugstore treatments to those like the Hanacure which set me back
$110.00 for 4 treatments.
Before using the Hanacure however, I first wanted something to
compare it to. I was originally going to test the old egg white treatment
I used in the 70s, but with all the recent salmonella warnings, I
wondered if that was still a good idea. I opted instead for a peel off
mask I purchased at Walgreens for $2.25.
I did the treatments a week apart, starting with my drugstore mask.
It certainly made my skin feel nice, but I didn’t look any younger. I
eagerly moved onto the Hanacure with high hopes!
Drew swore it took 10 years off her face and at 43 years young I’m not
sure she needs such a miracle. But I was excited to try it in case it would
do it for me. I must report however, it did not.
I will admit it was easy and fun to use. I mixed and applied as
directed and did achieve the similar mid-mask, selfie worthy results I
see all over Instagram.
As it dries, it become
increasingly tighter on the skin,
resulting in a wrinkled, facial
distorting look. When I rinsed it
off however, while my skin did
look nice and smooth, it certainly
did not appear 10 years younger
- or much different from the
drugstore mask results.
The Hanacure reviews claim it improves with each use, so I continued
to use the remaining 3 treatments.
Oddly, I do like it every time I use it, but honestly, I’m not sure my
face looks any better or different. Based on their claims, I may buy
this one more time to see if the continued use really does result in any
If after a $220 investment I still look the same, I will go back to
my drugstore peel off mask. Admittedly, I am a sucker for trying new
things, but I’m also practical and realize I have yet to find anything
that was truly a miracle.
It doesn’t stop me from looking though - hope springs eternal!

Car Subscription: Is it for You?
By: BJ Killeen / Down the Road
The future is all about subscriptions. From
television channels to cell phones to vacations,
the trend is to reduce the shock of a large, onetime
charge for services and products by breaking them into monthly
For example, a cellphone that can cost $1,000 up front is a lot more
palatable when it’s only $39 a month. Automotive manufacturers are
catching on to this way of doing business.
Although it mostly applies to luxury automotive manufacturers
because car prices for high-end rides are steadily climbing, it may not be
long before you don’t own a car at all, but rather pay a monthly premium
to have a car available to you whenever and wherever you need it.
Book by Cadillac, Care by Volvo, Porsche Passport, Ford Canvas,
Lincoln, and more are offering options for those who don’t want to deal
with day-to-day car ownership. For example, Cadillac’s “Book” will pay
car insurance and maintenance and will also provide a vehicle for you if
you travel to another city.
Just think: No more rental cars. Just head to your hotel and a Cadillac
will be waiting for you. Cadillac’s program is $1,800 a month with a $500
deposit. Volvo’s program will allow you to subscribe to a new XC40 for
$600 a month, with no down payment. And you can change cars after a

By: Rana Goodman Formerly the Nevada
Association to Stop Guardian
& Elder Abuse we found we had a bigger purpose and wanted to serve
on a wider scale. We wanted to be the Hub of information, provide
access to resources, advocate for seniors, and impact the quality of life
for every senior in the community.
Our Mission & Purpose is to:
1. Be the HUB and anchor of senior information and resources.
2. Stop guardian & elder abuse by providing information, resources
and awareness of any senior abuse – including financial exploitation.
3. Help every senior enjoy life to the fullest and to: Live, Laugh &
As for our guardianship efforts, last month, Project Director Bill
Caserta, Dan and I held our 15 th guardianship seminar – this time at
Solera. As the photo shows, over 50 seniors completed and submitted
their guardianship forms to us for filing with the Nevada Secretary of

and on both The Vegas Voice (www.thevegasvoice.net) and Elder Hub

Of course, please contact me if you need referrals or if you have one
that our senior community should know about. Word-of-mouth has
always been the best reference and I welcome yours.
As our volunteer force grows, so do our lists. Sharing is the whole
idea. Keep in mind the profound words of Dr. Margaret Mead: “Never
doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can
change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Also, please remember, neither Dan nor I are attorneys and we cannot
give legal advice. We can however recommend those on our “good list.”
And conversely, we have no hesitancy in naming those that “we would
not touch with a ten-foot pole.”
Yes, it is our opinion(s), but after getting involved in the legal process
concerning the guardianship scandal, we’ve seen first-hand what
attorneys (both good and evil) have done (or tried to do) to individuals
and families caught in the system.

Quality Healthcare for Seniors is Easy to Find
When was the last time you went to see your doctor? Did you have
to wait weeks to get an appointment?
Once you arrived, were you in the waiting room for what seemed like
an eternity? Did your provider know your name and history, did you
have to repeat your health history for the umpteenth time?
If you called with a question, would they be happy to hear from you
or did they make you feel like it was a bother? If you’ve had any of these
experiences, you’re not alone. Access to quality healthcare, especially
for seniors, has been declining.
“Rising costs of treatment, low quality healthcare and physician
burnout are the three main reasons why Nevada ranks at the bottom of
national rankings,” says Tracy Wakefield, M.D., president of P3 Health
Partners’ Nevada Medical Group.

River Boat Cruising
By: Stu Cooper / Happy Destinations
have often said the getting to and from your
I vacation can be challenging. It’s the price
you pay sometimes to see things you may never
have seen before. To have a once in a lifetime experience.
And I can tell you I have had “getting to and from” issues over the
years. However, I’m lucky. I can wipe those aspects of the total vacation
experience from my mind.
I don’t dwell on those “difficulties.” I choose to remember the
memorable first-time sights, sounds and wonders of this magnificent
world we live in.
Case in point. Even though I’ve been on over 100 ocean cruises,
I experienced my first river cruise last month. What’s the difference
between these two types of cruises?
Is there a difference? The short answer – YES. There is quite the
In fact, the only similarity is that you’re on a moving water vessel.
Ocean going ships hold thousands of passengers. Riverboat vessels hold
no more than 180 passengers.
Cruise ships can be a thousand feet long and two hundred feet wide.
Riverboats are typically 400 feet long and 38 feet wide. Intimate would
be the word to describe a river boat.
Service on a riverboat is more personal. The kitchen is only cooking
for 180 people, while on a cruise ship, it can be preparing for 3,000 to
6,000 people. There is no casino or nightly “Las Vegas” Style Revue”
on a riverboat.
L U X U RY &
FROM THE WORLD’S MOST AWARDED
LUXURY CRUISE LINE
River cruising is port
intensive, with the vessel
being able to stop at little
towns and villages along
the river. Shore excursions
are the highlight and a
leisurely dinner is the
primary evening activity.
But for me, the biggest
difference is what you see
from a riverboat. On ocean
cruises, you see a lot of ocean. The sights to see from the ship can be
few and far between.
Visiting ports like Venice or San Francisco or New York can be
inspiring. But most of the time, you see ocean.
On a river cruise, there is something to be seen around every turn.
The vessel is never more than 100 feet from shore. You can watch and
see the world go by.
Wave to folks walking along the river bank. Scan the shore and look
for mountain high castles. Or just watch the river run which has been
the theme for many great songs. Simply put, a river cruise can become
very personal and intimate.
Yes, I will ocean cruise on a big ship again - The PHAT PACK cruise
to the Mexican Riviera January 26, 2019 comes to mind. And we will
have a great time.
But I also can’t wait to go on my next river cruise.

Tucson Encompasses Diversity
By: Kathy Manney / Around Our World
Many refer to it as the “Old Pueblo.” Its
indigenous heritage brings a wonderful
richness to the culture. The scenery defines the
Southwest, though Tucson is more than an
historic Southwestern town.

mature plants reaching 40-feet.

Not Another California
By: Victoria Seaman / Victoria’s Corner
At least that blue state has a beach.
Like so many of us here, my family and I
escaped California. I loved the beauty of the state
- from Redwood forests of the North to the beautiful beaches in the
South. California had it all.
The only problem was the liberal dominated government of California
wanted it all, and by all I mean our income through endless and higher
taxes, and our freedoms through endless laws and regulations.
It got to the point where I realized as a small business owner, I was no
longer working to feed my family. I was working to feed the government
with whatever scraps they allowed me going to my family.
We made the decision to sell our business and move to Nevada.
And while the move was just across the border, it might as well have
been across the universe. Taxes were low, government was limited, and
freedom was high.
Which allowed my family and most Nevadans to prosper. We settled
down and got busy building an amazing life in Nevada.
Then slowly things started to change. Too many of the people coming
here from California were for voting for the same types of laws and
the same style of politician. That created the nightmare in California
which we escaped from.
I watched as taxes were raised, regulations were piled on businesses,
and freedoms slowly chipped away at. The place my family loved to call
home was turning in to the place we had just escaped from.
But this time I chose to stand up and fight. Running for office for the
first time and getting elected to the Assembly where I fought against
the liberal effort to turn us into California East. Now I need you to join
me in that fight.
The first battle is the June 12 primary. It isn’t enough to simply
elect Republicans in November. We need to elect true conservative
Republicans who will stand with us in stopping the liberals from
turning Nevada into a blue state without a beach.

aos, New Mexico is one of the most
historic art centers in the nation and it
was the home of Nicolai Fechin, one of
America’s adopted artists and most famous
impressionists. Plus Taos’ beauty and charm
was a driving force in my Dad’s development
as the artist, who signed his name Czerkas.
My Dad was a Californian, but his fascination with the Southwest
came from his private teacher, Nicolai Fechin, who loved
the area and insisted my Dad spend time there. Fechin (b. 1881
- d. 1955) had already established an extraordinary reputation
as an impressionistic artist before he fled from Russia to the US.
He traveled through many of the States, but only one area stole
his heart with its rural beauty and that was Taos, a village sixty
miles from Santa Fe. He along with several other well known
artists, including Georgia O’Keefe, settled in that region and
built a reputation for their community in the art world that has
lasted over a hundred years. Each of these artists had their own
style and interests but many of them like Fechin were especially
drawn to the Native Americans who resided nearby. The unique
customs, ceremonies, and habitats of the tribes really intrigued
Fechin and likewise my Dad, Victor Czerkas.
Call Ray at:
Taos is calling...
Pueblo Gathering Watercolor / 22” x 28”
The Mystical Pueblos series of paintings and giclees by Czerkas
focuses on the spirituality of our Native American populations.
Like Fechin, my Dad sought to preserve the heritage and beauty
of the Southwest. And the result is an ethereal quality in this art
collection that tells us these are scenes from bygone days, when
pueblos dominated tribal communities with an ageless, almost
surreal appearance. Original oils, watercolors and limited edition
giclees are available.
The paintings shown here are by Crystal’s Dad, the award
winning artist Victor Czerkas, the only known private student of
the great Russian impressionist, Nicolai Fechin. Want more info?

Myths - Part 2
By: Jim Valkenburg / Insurance Insight
Last month I presented some common
myths in the insurance industry. Below are
a few more which will hopefully enlighten and help you with insurance
My zip code does not affect my car insurance rates. FACT: Yes, it
does! Insurance companies evaluate their losses by many factors and a
prime factor is where you live and drive.
You can move across the street to another zip code and your rates
could go either up or down. In Las Vegas there is a gated guarded
country club in the middle of one of the higher rated zip codes! It may
not seem fair, but it is based solely on loss statistics in that zip code.
My jewelry is covered under my home insurance policy as part
of my contents. FACT: Only partially. Every preferred insurance policy
limits several categories for loss by THEFT and these categories include,
in part, jewelry, watches, furs, silver, firearms and money.
The companies vary by amount they allow, but it is typically $2,500
- $5,000 for “unscheduled” jewelry. If you have “high ticket” jewelry
items, you should get them appraised and “schedule” them specifically
on your policy. The premium is usually between $1 - $1.40 per $100
If my car is stolen, my insurance will also pay for the personal
items that were in my vehicle. FACT: NO. If your vehicle is stolen and
recovered, your auto insurance company will pay for any damage done
to your car (if you have appropriate coverage).
However, your personal items would be covered by your home or
renter’s policy. That usually means two different deductibles – bummer!
As my car gets older my rates should go down and conversely a
new car will cost more to insure than an old car. FACT: Maybe yes,
maybe no. Many people are under the impression that newer cars are
more expensive to insure because the parts are costlier.
However, new cars come with many safety features to prevent
collisions, protect occupants and prevent damage to the car. Certainly,
a brand new Mercedes will cost more than your 1978 Ford, however
many people lease, and when they trade in their 2-3 year old vehicle
for a new one, I’ve seen the rate decrease.
More next month.

WIt is time to take steps to protect our
landscaping from insect infestation.
My defensive approach is two-pronged:
Mechanical and Chemical.
The mechanical approach utilizes your “eyes.” You should make a
daily visual inspection to ascertain what “invaders” are lurking in your
Look at the leaves, stems, flowers and branches. If you see infestation,
the quickest and environmentally friendly method of removal is to
spray the plants with a stream of water from your hose.
This method works well in removing spittle bugs and cochineal scale
that invade rosemary bushes and cactus as well as thrips on flowers.
Many unwanted visitors will be washed off.
If a more stubborn situation exists, take an empty spray bottle and
fill it with water. Add a ¼ teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and mix
Spray the entire plant with the solution. Insects that feast on flowers
and tender plants will fall off like a “one-way water slide for insects!”
This solution can be used as much as needed with no fear of hurting
the plants. Larger insects can be safely removed by using a pair of
tweezers and dropping them into a bag for quick disposal.
Some flowers can act as deterrents to insects. Marigolds can ward
off the horned tomato caterpillars and root-eating nematodes.
Chrysanthemums contain Pyrethrum which repeal insects.
With serious insect infestation, you want to use a chemical approach.
Note: There are two categories of chemicals: Contact and Systemic.
Contacts are sprayed directly onto plants for immediate results.
Systemics are mixed into the soil where the root system absorbs these
chemical and act as a “vaccine.”
When insects try to eat the plant, they are killed off by the insecticide
which is part of the plant makeup. Systemics, however, should not be
used on edible plants or fruiting plants since these chemicals will be
present in the food itself.
Using a combination of mechanical and chemical approaches will
help to protect your landscape and keep away unwarranted insect

Dental Insurance? An oxymoron if ever there

for not seeking dental care.
What a flimsy excuse. If one is concerned about keeping and/or

There are issues with insurance that patients often think are the fault
of the dental office. For example, very often when an office submits for
payment for a covered expense, the office and the patient, will receive
an EOB (estimate of benefits) by mail that denies the claim.
The decision to approve or to deny, either the payment or the

WHITE SMILES ARE FOR EVERYONE!
A consultation is complementary
There are very few supervisors with whom one can intelligently
communicate on the patient’s behalf. And there are only so many hours
in a day to do so.
The fact that the EOB is returned to the patient as denied carries the
implication that the proposed dental procedure was not needed. In fact,
we have found that at the first submission, there is denial of benefit
80% of the time.
Naturally the patient’s perception is that the office is trying to do
something unnecessary. Denying the claim works in the favor of the
insurance company in two ways: (1) It achieves the desired perception
of unnecessary work so that the patient often puts off having the needed
dental work done, and/or (2) At the very least, there will be more time
taken up in going back and forth with the insurance company which
helps to delay their financial output.
I have found that the initial denial of an office’s submission is a
common business strategy of the insurance industry. The longer that
the insurance company holds onto its money, the more they make prior
to finally having to tender the payment.
Until next month, keep smiling.

It’s taking me awhile to get used to this
homeowners’ association thing.
Granted, I’ve spent a good deal of time in China,
where the walled community is a traditional fixture – courtyards,
housing compounds, villages, and entire towns and cities have long
been surrounded by walls. But the U.S. brand of enclosed community
that emerged in the latter half of the 20 th century and became a familiar
fixture of residential living in Las Vegas is new to this newcomer.
By some estimates, half of Vegas residents live in HOA-governed
enclaves. I once associated such configurations with wealth and status,
but now know they run the gamut, from modest apartment complexes
to cozy houses, condos and mansions.
HOAs unfolded from the rapid growth of suburbs after World War
II, as developers and municipalities sought to reduce construction and
infrastructure costs. Planning experts offer numerous rationales for the
model’s success, most obviously the ability to fund collective services
HOAs have assumed many expenses previously borne by governments
and taxpayers, and fancier ones go further - providing for club houses,
golf courses, swimming pools and the like. Other identified functions
include separation and privacy, surveillance and social control, status
and identity, and safety and security.
Although the police announce daily notices of home break-ins, carjackings
and lurking strangers, I don’t feel the least scared in my Vegas
neighborhood. Yet safety and security seem to loom foremost in the
minds of our HOA board members and management company. A recent
letter announced that three of the four pedestrian gates in the perimeter
fence will be welded shut to deter non-residents from strolling through.
Many of the strollers are high school students taking a shortcut.
Neighbors complain about kids huddling to smoke dope, and some
have experienced vandalism or theft.
Yet overall the teen presence seems innocuous. Be they sullen or
boisterous, these young interlopers belong to the landscape of mundane
human activity – along with dogs walking and children playing that
drew me to this neighborhood in the first place.
The HOA letter bemoaned that when the pedestrian gates had locks,
people jammed or broke them, and when the locks were removed, the
poor gates still got body-slammed. The letter laments that intruders
climb over walls or tag along at the auto entry.
Won’t welding the walking gates shut (including the one my
dogs and I pass through on our daily jaunts) merely exacerbate the
problems? I’ve no objection to privacy barriers, but what’s wrong with
When we wall the world out, after all, we are walling ourselves in.

Oh No - Summer’s Here!
By: Mary Richard / Health Fitness
OK it’s summer already! OUCH! For those
who have not exercised or felt that we
certainly have “plenty of time” to get into that
“bathing suit” physique – here it is!
You can change into your slimmer summer physique very quickly
if you follow a few simple rules and do it consistently for 4-6 weeks.
During my ride to work each morning, I see many of my neighbors
They have developed camaraderie with other neighbors and pass the
time on their walks. This is also barbeque season and you know how
tempting all those hamburgers, hotdogs, beer and other goodies can
add on pounds!
Start by walking for 20 minutes at a moderate pace, increasing your
speed every five minutes or so. Gradually increase it to a little more
each day (or by the end of each week).
Walk early in the morning or later in the evening now that the
warmer weather is upon us. Keep a steady, moderate-to-strong pace for
the entire walk.
Start off by walking in a safe area – perhaps a park or if your
neighborhood is safe, just around a few blocks. I’m fortunate to
have not only a safe neighborhood, but also a walking track at my
Put on sun block lotion (no matter what time of day it is). Carry a
bottle of water, wear sunglasses, a hat, comfortable shoes and ID.
Remember to eat a little something before you begin your walk.
Dehydration can set in very quickly and lack of some “fuel” in your
body can add to dizziness and lack of energy to finish your walk.
If you have an iPod or MP3 – load in some of your favorite music. It
helps to pass the time away and before you know it, you have completed
your walk without even thinking about it.
Walking will burn off plenty of calories so that you can have that
hamburger, hotdog or nice cold beer without feeling guilty. Isn’t
summer food just yummy?
With all this said – walk to your heart’s desire! You’ll feel better, burn
off calories, meet new friends and enjoy some fresh air!

Headaches are one of the most common
reasons people seek medical help. A 2017
survey reported that 17% of adults suffer from
multiple headaches per month. The problem with treating persistent
headaches is that there are many potential causes for the headache.
Your brain has no pain receptors which is one of the reasons a
patient can be awake during brain surgery. Pain cannot come from
brain tissue. The blood vessels that feed your brain tissue however, are
a completely different story.
These blood vessels are many times the cause of the headache. As an
example, migraine headaches are believed to be due to irritation of the
Migraines have multiple causes, including hormone imbalances,
food sensitivities, and stress. These headaches differ from other types
of headaches in that the person is unusually sensitive to light, sound
and even smells. Nausea and vomiting can also accompany migraines.
Sinus headaches are found on the forehead or at the cheekbones.
In this instance, there is local inflammation of the sinuses. The
inflammation plus increased mucous production puts pressure on the
walls of the sinuses, eventually resulting in a sinus headache
Tension headaches are usually felt as pain in the neck and the head.
The head feels like there is a tight band around it.
Tension headaches are due to stress. The stress causes the neck and
scalp muscles to chronically contract and become painful.
Another form or headache is called a cervicogenic headache. Here
the headache is a non-throbbing pain in the neck and back of the skull.
It can be felt around and behind the eyes.
A cervicogenic headache is due to a problem in the bones or soft
tissue in your neck that is irritating the local nerves. The pain is felt
along the trajectory of these nerves.
Differentiating the cause of the headache helps doctors understand
their underlying pathophysiology so that treatment is specific to the

Let’s Clarify Numbers
By: Dr. Victoria Boyd / Hempworx
What does potency really mean? What is
bioavailability? We get questions related
to these terms so hopefully I can shed some light
on understanding CBD lingo.
Potency refers to the levels of CBD and/or THC in a product.
Cannabinoid potency data quantifies levels of plant cannabinoids
present in hemp/cannabis products.
Producers are required to obtain potency data for THC and CBD,
the two most common cannabinoids. It’s important for consumers to
know THC and CBD levels because these will have a strong influence
on the effects of the product.
For example, some medical patients may want a strain with a
high CBD-THC ratio, while other consumers may request the opposite.
The best companies use a third party testing lab that conducts an
analysis verifying the stated levels, concentration of, or presence of
Potency can also refer to whether the CBD product is full spectrum
or an isolate. A full spectrum product produced from the entire plant
with no modifications will have minute traces of THC (at -.03% FDA
ranks a product as zero, but not FREE). However, some desire a totally
THC free product which means the other CBD compounds have been
Bioavailability is a complex subject, but simply put, it is the
measure of how much of any substance (whether ingested or inhaled)

For nearly four decades, Sal Parisi and his
bass guitar danced across stages with gusto
to the beat of the jazz, Latin and dance music he
loved before the wear and tear took its toll. He was particularly fond of
“romantic Latin jazz, the kind you could dance to.”
In bygone days, he created the high energy group Dance Vegas who
counted Las Vegas treasure Mark Giovi (pictured with Parisi in the
background) as the lone male among their trio of vocalists. Hitting
sevens and eights on the pain scale, Sal traded his music for a walking
cane and his steady income for disability checks.
At its worst, with prospects of a return to the stage bleak, the pain
caused the Detroit native to sell his collection musical instruments
fearing a return to the stage was impossible. “My spine is so far gone
they can’t operate,” he said of his six herniated discs, three bone-onbone
vertebrae and advanced arthritis.

is used by the body or makes it into the bloodstream. If you’re trying
to figure out which method of taking CBD is the best “bang for your
buck,” there’s honestly no real clear option or “winner.”
The decision should come down to what benefits you’re trying to
achieve. If you take CBD every day for chronic symptoms, and want
long-lasting effects, taking it sublingual (oil drops under the tongue)
may suit you well.
If you’re looking for a heavy-hitting, fast-acting benefit that you
might not need every day (such as for a migraine or a bout of high
anxiety) then vaping CBD may be the better option because of its
quick entry into bloodstream, however its impact has a much shorter

After picking up the
bass guitar as an 8-year
old, Parisi began touring
nine years later playing
in Top 40 bands. The
meager paying night
gigs in small towns gave
him an opportunity to
“door knock” during
the days, carpet cleaning
machine in tow. “I
could pick up an extra
hundred bucks a day
cleaning carpets,” he
remembers. That hard
driving mindset sustains
Parisi found relief when a friend recommended CBD, a hemp derived
product available in health food stores. And more encouraging is that
he’s reconnected with some former musician buddies with dreams of
returning to a local stage.

Paying for Toxic Duty
By: Chuck Dean / Vet 2 Vet
The enemy is not always who, what, and
where we think it is. All that stuff falling like
rain on us in Vietnam was not mist or insecticide,
it was deadly dioxin (Agent Orange) that our government used.
Dioxin is one the most toxic substances known to man, and many of
us were exposed to it during our tours of duty. Short-term exposure of
humans to high levels of this stuff may result in skin lesions, such as
chloracne and patchy darkening of the skin, altered liver function, and
cancer…just to name a few.
Long-term exposure is linked to impairment of the immune system,
the developing nervous system, and the endocrine system. That was
the unseen and unsuspected enemy that has taken down many good
warriors since coming home.
Even at home, our troops have been toxically exposed. The
contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, is one of the few instances in
which former military personnel who weren’t deployed could become
eligible for cash payouts.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has published regulations
to establish presumptions for the service connection of eight diseases
associated with exposure to contaminants in the water supply at Camp
Lejeune. The presumption of service connection applies to active duty,
reserve and National Guard members who served at Camp Lejeune for
a minimum of 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987.
If they are
diagnosed with any
of the following
anemia and other
syndromes, bladder, kidney & liver cancer, multiple myeloma, Non-
Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and Parkinson’s disease, they need to begin the
process for benefits designed for them.
For a long time, it was thought that Agent Orange only effected
ground troops. However the VA has produced a list of all the ships and
aircraft used by the Navy and Coast Guard that was associated with
spraying the toxins in and around all the inland waterways, and off the
coasts of Vietnam. If one’s military record can verify duty in these areas,
they are eligible to submit a claim for damages to their health.
The good news (if there is any) is that the Department of Veterans
Affairs is now confessing and divulging the truth. After recognizing and
owning up to the use of deadly chemicals in Vietnam, it has named and
declared many presumptive diseases and conditions in ailing veterans.
Many eligible and suffering veterans are filing claims, getting rated,
and receiving the needed treatment. I encourage all veterans to get
boned up on what those presumptive conditions are, and if any apply,
then take action and begin the process. You will be amazed at how fast
that process can go now.
Chuck Dean served as an Army paratrooper in Vietnam and
through that experience was led to address the many transitional
issues veterans struggle with. He is the author of several important
books for veterans. All can be found on Amazon at: http://www.

Smart Buyers Look Below the Surface!
A good stager can minimize a multitude of flaws in a home, from an awkward traffic flow
and cave-like bedrooms to family rooms without a wall long enough for a full-size
couch. As home sellers increasingly use "staging" to get their homes ready to sell,
buyers must learn to look beyond staging’s "sparkle" to see a home’s bones and
The natural assumption is that a well-presented home is also a well-maintained
home. That is exactly the impression that the home seller is trying to make! It's a fact
that most potential buyers are distracted by the effects of staging. So, when you are in
the market to purchase a home, the first time you walk through a house you should
concentrate on fundamental issues such as the floor plan and the home’s location rather
than on how the home is decorated or the furniture is arranged.
Common items to watch for:
Don’t be dazzled by the light. Halogen lights, for instance, can make a room seem
larger, as can torchiere-style lamps that reflect light up to ceilings.
Don’t let shimmer hide the reality of the space. Items such as mirrors and glass
tabletops can make rooms appear larger. Measure each room to see how big it
Beware of tight spaces. Think about whether or not the furniture in a room is
appropriate for the room’s use. A bedroom without night stands might prove to be
cramped with a full-size bedroom set in it. Also look out for love seats that are in
place instead of couches, which can make a room seem larger. Measure
your furniture so that you know how much room you actually need (if you plan to
keep the same furniture).
Staging puts a house’s best face forward (so I do recommend that if you are selling your
home that you do consider employing these methods as they do work), but savvy buyers
need to look below the surface and think about what really will be important to them in a
new home when home shopping.
Whether you are buying a home or selling a home (or maybe both!) - you need an
experienced professional to guide you through the process. Your success is important to
me, so please call me today to assist you with your next real estate transaction. I'm here
to help, and have your best interest at heart. I am looking forward to working with you!
