Moving to Florida was an
We came so long ago that
the now wide, gloriously
inhabited A1A was only two lanes wide
and there was always a gathering of sand
on each side of the avenue in front of the
mom and pop motels. During that time, Daytona
Beach Shores was destined to become
a city and my dad the city manager.
Nova Road was also two-lane. There
were deep tire prints made by the truck
route traffic. If you happened to be driving
on Nova Road in the rain, the rain that accumulated
in the tire tracks would fly up on
each side of you—higher than the vehicle.
You would come home from work to
find a dozen bicycles parked at your driveway.
The kids loved to explore the woods
behind your home but time took care of
that. First a forest fire that nearly scared
people into moving—and then the burned
area was purchased and eventually filled
with mobile homes.
All of these things came to mind a few
weeks ago when everyone was preparing
for Father’s Day. Dad was city manager of
Daytona Beach Shores when it first became
an independent city and I got to thinking
about the day he arranged for the huge
American flag to be paraded down A1A.
It took dozens of men (on all four sides) to
carry it. What a beautiful sight! I seem to be
the only one who remembers it as the Mt.
Rushmore flag traveling around the country
in honor of their anniversary. It was a special
day in Daytona Beach Shores!
Some things never change and seem to
be exclusively Florida… I recently saw
something that brought to mind some rambling
thoughts concerning our uniquely
special part of the country. You are from
(or now live in) Florida if…
• The four seasons are hurricane, love bug,
tourist, and summer.
• You go to the beach on Christmas.
• Your vacation is in the Smoky Mountains.
• Dressing up can be knee length shorts.
• You search for a shady spot to park
• You close the top on your convertible
before exiting—in case of rain!
Only In Florida…
…by Kitty Maiden
• Speaking of rain, you never leave the
car with the windows down!
• Flip flops are worn year round.
• You greet strangers like old friends.
• When picking season is over, you get
• It could take a long time before you
ever meet a native of Florida
• Rain trees grow anywhere—even on the
roof of a home!
A young man visiting his family in
Florida saw a sign at the entrance to a community
called Forest Hills. He couldn’t stop
laughing. Why? Because he was from Richmond,
Virginia—a mountainous area. He
said that all he saw in Florida was flatland.
A motel owner said “Can you imagine
what would happen here if the place was
hit by a 15’ tidal wave?”
All in all, Florida is the place we now
call home and have for many years. The
history of our area is fascinating. One of
the first books I read after coming here was,
God Has A Long Face. I learned more
about the ‘old’ Florida from that book and
have enjoyed the ‘new’ Florida ever since!

What is Guardianship?
Guardianship is a process in
which the court removes
rights from an incapacitated
person and assigns them to
a guardian. This procedure is made necessary
when a person loses capacity and
has not previously created a durable
power of attorney and other documents
naming somebody to handle financial
and health care matters.
The proceeding commences upon filing
a Petition to Determine Incapacity
and a Petition to Appoint Guardian. The
Court appoints three people as an examining
committee, consisting of medical
professionals and a person who is familiar
with the type of incapacity. The
court also appoints an attorney for the
“Alleged Incapacitated Person.” These
safeguards are intended to protect the
The appointed attorney serves the
pleadings on the person, and represents
the person. The committee members individually
examine the Alleged Incapacitated
Person and submit a report
of their findings.
The Alleged Incapacitated Person is
permitted to attend the hearing. If the
Court finds the person to be incapacitated,
the Court appoints a guardian for
the “Ward.” The Court may appoint a
Plenary Guardian (where all rights are
Flowers were an important
part of the lives of Americans
from the 1880s to 1950s.
Technology had advanced
to a time when pottery could be made
in multiples in molds and large kilns.
New types of plants had been introduced
to the country, flower arrangements
were a sign of wealth and good
taste. Formal gardens were important.
Collectors can find many flower
vases by Rookwood, Weller, Roseville,
Grueby, Fulper, and many other important
factories. Urns, flower vases,
wall pockets, flower frogs, and even
chairs, benches, garden ornaments, and
fountains were popular. Life-sized frogs,
rabbits, turtles, squirrels, even deer, dogs,
elves, and large mushrooms were created
to display outdoors. Talented
artists made the expensive garden fountains.
Many were sculptures of groups
of children with birds, fish, plants,
shells, and large rocks. The Rookwood
Pottery started making architectural pottery
fountains in 1902 that were groups
about 3- to 5-feet high, with water
pouring from rock crevices or mouths
of large fish.
Today, a Rookwood fountain can
sell for $3,000 to $8,000, depending

Generally, the fees for creating the
guardianship are paid from the Ward’s
own funds, including the fees for the
attorney representing the guardian, the
attorney representing the Ward, and the
The guardian is required to file a care
plan and a report describing the financial,
medical, and personal aspects of
the case annually. The guardianship continues
until the Ward dies or regains
capacity. Thus the costs do not end when
the guardianship is implemented.
If you have not appointed somebody
to act for you with a durable power of
attorney, do it NOW. It does not cost
much, and certainly nowhere near the
cost of Guardianship.

on the artist, subject, and condition. It
is not unusual to have many chips,
stains, even firing cracks in a fountain
after years outside, but it still sells for
thousands of dollars. It also pays to
get expert repairs that will raise the
value and add to the life of the fountain.
A Rookwood fountain sold by
Brunk auctions a few years ago brought
$2,300 even though it was damaged.
Wear and tear on a garden piece adds
to the romance and aged look. Check
the backyards of house sales or even
houses for sale for overlooked fountains
and birdbaths or ornaments. You
might find a forgotten treasure.

Tiny Stuff... The Macro Challenge
by Peggy Goldtrap
George and I belong to the Casements
Camera Club. It is a fun
organization of folks who love
to take pictures. That’s the admission
requirement. Our very able President,
Ans van Beek Torkington, keeps all of
our egos satisfied by scheduling meetings
and competitive events throughout the year.
In between meetings and competitions,
Ans and Judy Speno have guided 10-day
Challenges to keep our skills and creativity
humming. We’ve had Challenges on
Reflections, the Color Yellow, Movement,
Hometown, Weather, and most recently
Macro. Participants submitted photos of
bugs, flowers, shells, sushi, mushrooms,
glass, jewelry, wood, etc. In case you’re
wondering, Macro is extreme close-up photography,
usually of very small subjects
and living organisms in which the size of
the subject in the photograph is greater
than life size.
I normally shoot landscapes, vistas, wideopen
spaces, things of curiosity. I was not
a Macro fan. After several trial and error
photos I discovered a joy in the tiny world.
Things like flowers, so exquisitely complex;
a lizard’s flamethrower throat intimidating
invaders; a bug as transparent as
glass. Macro world is survival of the fittest,
a world to which I was oblivious. What I
thought was boring became a magical
kingdom appealling my awareness.
It’s like seeing the potential in a
person or a child or an idea. It’s like
seeing an annoying habit as a strength
instead of an impediment. It’s like turning
‘I’ll never, I can’t,’ into maybe, I
can the next time I try. Keeping fresh is
a challenge for all of us called seniors.
It’s comfy to talk about old times where
we no longer live, and overlook the present
where everything significant is
decided. It’s easy to glamorize—then,
criticize. We can’t move forward into
George has always been a Macro fan.
While I’m shooting mountains, he’s hunting
molehills. Now I understand his joy.
Shared hobbies or interests are important
things to nurture a relationship, especially
as we grow older.
Everyone is a photographer in 2019.
Find me a crowd without cell cameras, or
video cameras, even drones flying around
recording every second of US. This generation
is more in touch than any in history.
No one lives or dies without having at least
one selfie shared across at least one kind of
media resource. In a way we’ve all become
historians recording every heartbeat from
the womb to the tomb, literally. Space is
philled with photos phloating phreely:
babies, graduations, concerts, toothless old
and young, pranks, embarrassing moments,
and cat pictures, of course.
For GAG and I, cameras have been
conversation and photography—a shared
interest. We fiercely compete for awards
and cheer madly when we win. Mostly we
compete to keep our brains working, to
stretch our ability, to formulate new goals,
and to refill our bucket lists. What’s the
biggest Challenge? Keep it fresh.
Using a camera takes thought; who,
when, where, why. Now what? A picture
must be shared and seen by someone so
there’s a definite social aspect to the effort.
The photographer wants a comment: awesome,
awful, funny, fabulous, exceptional,
trite, absurd, LOL! Crickets… blah, no
reaction, the deepest wounds to our inner
After shooting, the challenge is to tweak
and alter without looking like a cheap sofa
painting. Editing programs are adult toy
boxes. The average person with basic
Photo Editing apps can create the works of
DaVinci. It’s almost too easy. You can literally
build a beautiful photo with objects
that were never in the original. Don’t like
the color of the girl’s dress? Change it.
Don’t like the texture on the pear? Give the
grain a deeper, richer enhancement. What
if a ballplayer wears a flower instead of a
cap and wants wrinkle-free skin without a
facelift? No problemo! EezPeez!
Macro has been a totally WOW discovery
for me and discovery is the essence
of life. It’s so easy to fall in a rut, feel too
exhausted to dig out, and then accept
boredom as your new norm. Anything that
stimulates the imagination to act outside
the box is good. When doors close, don’t
just sit there in the dark! There are always
new ways to do old things, and vice versa.
The Casements Camera Club has been
a great outlet for us as a couple and individually
by forcing creativity. The subject
of the next Challenge has yet to be
announced, but we promise our participation.
We’d love for you to join us?
Humane Society Update
How Dogs Enrich Seniors' Lives
by Barry KuKes
Pet ownership among older
adults brings much more than
just joy and sociability to senior
lives. Studies from Harvard
Medical School have found physical and
mental health benefits such as lowered blood
pressure and stress and alleviation of depression
and anxiety. Feeding, taking walks, and
simply cuddling with a pup or cat can provide
a sense of purpose and companionship.
Adult pet owners who volunteer with
their animals get an extra dose of good,
with a University of Calgary study relating
volunteering to cognitive health benefits.
There are several organizations including
Halifax Humane Society that offer dog
visits to assisted living facilities (and we can
always use more volunteers!) The residents
are always so happy to see the dogs when
they visit. Some of these facilities allow their
residents to have pets of their own. There
might be a restriction as to size/ weight and
breed, or type of pet, but for the most part
small dogs and cats are usually acceptable.
Many times, the pets that belong to a resident
end up becoming a therapy dog and visits
other residents in the facility.
People come to HHS and other shelters
to adopt a pet to keep them company and
to give them, and the animal a purpose. A
pet keeps people moving and gets them out
of bed each morning because the pet needs
to go out or they are hungry. Seniors with
a purpose live longer and happier lives.
Many seniors worry about what will happen
to their pet should they become unable
to care for the pet or if they were to pass
away. As to caring for the pet, there are
many pet sitting services that offer reduced
rates for assisted living residents based on
how many residents utilize their services. One
trip to service 10 customers is very efficient
for the pet care service, so rates can be as
low as $5 a pet stop. A pet care person can
clean litter boxes, feed the pets, walk the
dog, etc. If you are a senior and live on
your own versus in a facility, pet care services
will come to you as well. Many offer
seniors discounted rates.
As to what will happen to the pet if the
owner was to pass away, this is up to the
owner to decide. Many pet owners have
included their pets in their living wills and
estate planning. They have provided for
their pet either financially or by planning
with a friend or relative to take over the
care of the pet for the rest of the pets’ life.
Not having a pet because you are worried
what might happen to it 10-years from now
when you pass away should not be a consideration.
There are always options available
and depriving yourself and the animal
from many years of joy, happiness, and purpose
based on the unknown future is not
prudent. Live for today and enjoy your life.
A pet can be your very best friend. Many
seniors give in to getting a small dog or cat
and comment weeks later, “I don’t know
what I would do without my cat; I didn’t
rescue her, she rescued me!”
Please remember to adopt, don’t shop.
There are many animals waiting for you
are your local shelters. Come meet your
new best friend today.

What’s In The Stars
For The Week Of July 29
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Get
your facts together before you have to
face up to that interview. The better
prepared you are, the easier it will be
to make an impression.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New
information might warrant changing
your mind about a recent decision.
Never mind the temporary confusion.
Acting on the truth is always preferable.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating
a loving atmosphere for those you
care for could pay off. Expect to hear
some unexpected but welcome news
that can make difference in your life.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stepping
away from an old problem might
be helpful. Use the time to take a new
look at the situation and perhaps work
out a new method of dealing with it.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You're still
in a favorable mode. However, you
might need to be a little more realistic
about some of your aims. Best to reach
for what is doable. The rest will follow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A setback
is never easy. Recheck your proposal
and strengthen the weak spots.
Seek advice from someone who has
been there and done that.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Coming
up with a new way of handling a tedious
job-regulated chore could lead to more
than just a congratulatory memo once
the word reaches the right people.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) What
you might call determination, someone
else might call stubbornness. Look for
ways to reach a compromise that won't
require a shift of views on your part.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
You're still in a vulnerable mode. So
continue to be skeptical about anything
that can't be backed up with
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Thrift is still dominant now. What you
don't spend on what you don't need will
be available for you to draw on should
a possible money crunch hit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Staying
close to home early allows for some
introspection about your social life. Sort
out your feelings before rejoining your
fun-time fellows on the weekend.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It can
be a bit daunting as well as exciting to
find yourself finally taking action on a
long-delayed move for a change. It helps
to stay with it when others support you.

Life Of Marci Part 3 Chapter 6
…by Byron Spires
Alone, Marci walked back toward
the house. She was
devastated that her son had
paid very little attention to
her as she stood and watch him fishing
with his grandfather.
The realization that she was losing her
son’s affection began to weigh heavily on
her as she stopped by the barn to rest. Standing
there she remembered something she
and Isaiah, Sr. had done one afternoon to
the other side of the barn.
They had started to fall in love and Isaiah,
Sr. had brought her out to the barn to
show her what he had done.
“Okay close your eyes and don’t look
until I tell you to,” he had told her. She
could feel him as he lead her around the
barn and stopped.
He turned her slightly and told her that
she could uncover her eyes.
On the barn wall in front of her Isaiah,
Sr. had carved M.B. Loves I.C. in big
“Isn’t that what folks do that are in
love, carve their initials in the side of a
barn,” Isaiah, Sr. said to her.
“I believe it is in a tree trunk, but I like
it on the barn better,” Marci said.
A smile came over her face as she walked
around the corner of the barn to look at
the spot Isaiah, Sr. had carved their initials.
She went directly to the spot where the
carvings should be, but they were not there.
“Maybe I remembered the spot wrong,”
she said out loud.
Stepping back to the wall she ran her
hand over where she knew the carving
must have been. They were not there.
Like a cold chisel being driven in her
back she realized that the boards with her
and Isaiah, Sr.’s initials had been replaced
with new boards.
To her dismay she realized that the Dalton’s
had removed the carvings.
Now it was starting to make sense the
way she was being treated and the way Isaiah,
Jr. was acting. Anger began to replace
the sorrow she felt and the more she thought
about the carvings being destroyed, the
angrier she became.
Her face began to feel warm. Clinching
her fist in tight balls she threw them into
the air and yelled at the top of her voice,
Nearly running she headed to the Clifford
house growing more upset with each
step. At the steps of the front porch she
yelled out, “Cora Mae.”
“I’m in the kitchen,” Cora Mae responded.
Pushing a chair out of the way in the
dining room with a loud thud, Marci headed
to the kitchen.
By the time Marci reached the kitchen
Cora Mae could tell from the noise she
made as she came through the house and the
tone of her voice that something was wrong.
“Yes, dear, is something wrong?” Cora
Mae asked her.
“You better believe there is something
wrong,” Marci replied raising her voice
and starting to yell at Cora Mae.
“I cannot believe you have taken down
the carving Isaiah, Sr. made for the two of
us on the side of the barn. It looks like you
are trying to erase anything about me from
this farm,” Marci said raising her voice
Marci’s face was now red as beet and
her voice was starting to crack with the anger
she was spouting at Cora Mae.
“It is obvious to me that you are driving
a wedge between me and my child. I
will not have it and you need to know that
I plan to take Isaiah, Jr. back with me to
Mobile when I leave,” Marci yelled.
Cora Mae had been caught off guard
with Marci’s outburst and was speechless
as Marci yelled at her.
Marci continued her rampage accusing
Cora Mae and Frank of undermining her
relationship with her son and trying to
replace her as his mother.
“I can’t believe I have been this stupid to
let you push me out of this family,” Marci
said, now losing her voice because of all
of the yelling.
Marci grew quite for a few seconds.
Her silence gave Cora Mae a few seconds
to gather her thoughts. She knew not to
lose her temper and to try and take advantage
of Marci’s anger.
“Young lady let’s get this straight. You
are Isaiah, Jr.’s mother, no one is trying to
take your place,” she said, then waited for
Marci to calm down.
Still upset, Marci gave Cora Mae a stern
look and blurted out, “You are lying. I’ve
heard you and Frank talking and I know
what you are up too.”
Cora Mae was speechless and just stood
there staring at Marci unable to speak.
Marci was still upset. She was so angry
she could feel her heart pounding in her chest.
Finally Cora Mae spoke, at first what she
was saying was almost inaudible to Marci.
“The truth is Isiah, Jr. needs to be here
on this farm where he can grow up like his
father. He needs to be with us. I hoped it
wouldn’t come to this, but you will never
leave here with our grandson,” Cora Mae
said in a calm and stern voice.
Marci could feel her heart start to beat
faster and all she wanted to do at that moment
was to grab Cora Mae and strangle her.
“We have a lawyer. He has told us we
can have you declared unfit as a mother
and take custody of Isaiah, Jr.” Cora Mae
said looking straight into Marci’s eyes.
Again there was silence between the two
as Marci stepped toward Cora Mae.
“If it is necessary we can have you
institutionalized as well and fix it where
you can never see him again,” Cora Mae
said squaring herself off to what she thought
would be an attack from Marci.
Cora Mae’s comment stopped Marci in
“What do you mean by that comment?”
Marci asked as the two stood staring at

the Lohmans have had in business and
throughout the community,” said Tom Upchurch,
a business and community leader
who chairs the Community Foundation.
“While the Lohmans have been extraordinarily
generous throughout their careers with
Lohman Funeral Homes, their community
involvement and philanthropic support has
only grown since they sold their enterprise.

profession in the 1970s transitioning
from owning water/sewer treatment facilities.

in Florida for more than 30 years.
Nancy Lohman has also been widely recognized

The First 24 Hours After Your Loved One Dies
Although the first twenty-four
hours after a person’s death
can be the most emotionally
difficult for those closest to
that person, they are often expected to make
Obviously, estate planning can alleviate
some pressure, but following a task list of
“what to do when” can be helpful.
1. Obtain a legal pronouncement of death. If
the person dies at home in hospice, hospice
can provide this. If the person passes
at a hospital, the hospital will provide it.
2. Consider ordering an autopsy from the
medical examiner if the person died under
suspicious circumstances. The spouse
has the ability to deny an autopsy unless
the medical examiner orders it.
3. Call the person’s family, friends, and
clergy and notify them of their loved
one’s death. Avoid discussions regarding
the disposition of the decedent’s
4. Arrange for the transportation of the
body. Knowing a few things prior to a person’s
death about their wishes can relieve
a family member, spouse, or personal representative
of concerns that they are not
doing what their loved one would want.
If possible, prior to a person’s death,
discuss end of life arrangements. The talk
Is the person an organ donor? If so,
where do they want their organs donated?
Do they want to be buried or cremated?
Do they have a prepaid funeral plan?
…by Linda Carley
Do they want a funeral service?
Do they want their ashes scattered
or placed in an urn?
5. Call a funeral home or a crematory for
the transportation of the body. They can
also arrange for either a burial or cremation.
A direct cremation through a crematory
can be a third of the cost of a direct
cremation through a funeral home.
6. Notify the person’s employer, if any.
7. Secure the home and car.
8. Arrange for the immediate care of pets
9. Make a list of action items to take in the
next five days including: ordering death
certificates, arranging for the funeral and
burial or cremation, preparing an obituary,
locating estate planning documents such
as the will or trust, contacting the personal
representative named under the will, if
any, and scheduling an appointment with
a home watch company such as East
Coast Home Watch if the residence will
be vacant during the probate of the estate.

Safely Show Off Your New Puppy
by Sam Mazzotta
Dear Paw's Corner: Our puppy
Clyde is about four months old, and
we can't wait to show him off this
summer. We have several outings to
the park planned, as well as a group
camping trip. Is there anything we
should be wary of when taking him
out to meet his adoring public?
—Jesse and Tom
White Plains, New York
Dear Jesse And Tom: Congratulations
on your new puppy! Taking Clyde
out to meet people is a fine idea, and
it sounds like you're planning ahead to
cover any contingencies. He's at just
the right age to do so: older than four
months, so that he's developed enough
to interact with other dogs and people,
and his immune system is strong enough
to fight off most threats (as long as he's
had his shots on schedule). He's following
commands and learning to walk
on a leash.
Here's a few more things to do:
• Give Clyde some early socialization
by scheduling play dates with
dogs you already know well. These

Remember when we were
kids and summers were
spent riding our bicycles
around the neighborhood?
We'd screech around corners, never
worrying about balance or falls. Now,
as seniors, most of us don't have that
That doesn't mean we have to stay
off bikes altogether. We only need to
add a wheel.
Three-wheel bicycles, known as
trikes, are becoming more popular as
the boomer generation ages. These bikes
have one wheel in the front and two in
the back, and most often come with a
big basket between the back wheels to
hold groceries or a small dog.
Most of the trikes are single speed,
but some come with three or seven speeds
to make starting and slight inclines
easier. Some trikes come with an electric
motor, and you'll need that if you
live in a hilly area.
One warning about the trikes, however:
If you rode a regular two-wheel
bike when you were young, you no
doubt learned about balance and leaning.
don't have to be very long; meeting
for a few minutes during a walk,
• Plan a few trial runs to the dog park
and the people park; schedule them
during off-peak hours in the early
morning so you have more control
over Clyde's interactions.
• Avoid taking him out on very hot
or humid days; aim for early morning
or late evening at the height of
summer. Bring plenty of cold water
just for Clyde to drink.
• Watch Clyde for signs of being overwhelmed
if he's around crowds of
people or dogs. Take him to a less
crowded area if he seems stressed out.

Our Biking Days Aren't Over
Trikes don't work that way. To ride one
of these safely, you need to sit upright.
If your doctor says yes to a bicycle
of any kind, do lots of research before
you buy. Especially look at YouTube
videos. Check out trikes at a legitimate
bicycle shop. Don't order one
online unless you know exactly what
For many of us, though, the idea of
riding any kind of outdoor bicycle is
out of the question, either because of
health, or busy streets, or lack of storage
space. There's something to be said
for indoor exercise cycles. They come in
either upright (like a regular bicycle) or
recumbent, which leans slightly back.
Recumbents are closer to the floor, so
the likelihood of falling is reduced.
The best thing about indoor cycles:
It doesn't matter what the weather is.
