Moving to Florida was an

unforgettable experience.

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

your car.

• You close the top on your convertible

before exiting—in case of rain!

Only In Florida…


Name It

…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

free oranges.

• 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

person’s rights.

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


Rookwood Fountain

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

delegated to the guardian) or a Limited

Guardian (where only certain rights

are delegated).

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

examining committee.

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

the past.

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

Ansel Adams.

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.

Director for the Halifax Humane Society.

National Army Museum

Takes Shape

Two historic helicopters, a WWI

—era Liberty Truck, and an antiaircraft

weapon were the latest

macro artifacts installed in the

National Museum of the United States

Army now under construction at Fort

Belvoir, Virginia.

Crews recently hoisted into place one

of the iconic Huey helicopters made

famous during the Vietnam War. The massive,

four-ton aircraft flown by the 129 th

Aviation Company, 10 th Combat Aviation

Battalion now hangs above the Museum’s

Cold War Gallery.

Also, installed was an R-4B helicopter,

more commonly known as The Sikorsky, in

the Army and Society Gallery. The Sikorsky

was the world’s first mass-produced

helicopter and used in World War II. Sikorsky

helicopters made history in 1944

conducting the first combat rescue mission

in the China-Burma-India Theater and

the first helicopter mercy mission when it

transported blood plasma to sailors who

survived the sinking of the USS Turner.

In April, a World War I Liberty Truck and

World War II Bofors Gun were placed into

position. The Liberty Truck, also in the

Army and Society Gallery, was the first

truck specifically developed for military use.

Experts say this truck was restored to nearoriginal


One of the iconic Hueys flown in the Vietnam

War is prepared for installation in the

National Museum of the United States Army.

The scene displaying the Bofors Gun, a

naval and land anti-aircraft weapon adopted

by the U.S. Army in 1941, will depict

African-American Soldiers of the 466 th

Anti-aircraft Artillery (AW) Battalion preparing

to fire on Japanese aircraft attacking an

Army airfield in New Guinea.

The Museum will open next year at Fort

Belvoir, Virginia and construction of the

building is largely funded by individual

donations made through The Army Historical

Foundation. The Foundation also raises

funds through the Army Brick Program

and Unit Tributes, which allow individuals

and Army Units to order personalized bricks

and plaques that will line the Museum’s

outdoor pathways. These permanent recognitions

can be ordered through the Foundation’s

website, armyhistory.org

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

provable facts.

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

block letters.

“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,

“Damn You.”

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

even more.

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

her tracks.

“What do you mean by that comment?”

Marci asked as the two stood staring at

each other.

2019 Herbert M. Davidson Award

Nancy & Lowell


Special to Seniors Today

The Community Foundation of

Volusia & Flagler will honor

community leaders and philanthropists

Nancy and Lowell

Lohman with its coveted Herbert M. Davidson

Memorial Award for Outstanding Community

Service. The dinner event is scheduled

for Thursday, Oct. 3, reception beginning at

6 P.M. at the Mori Hosseini Student Union at

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Also

being honored with the Community Foundation’s

Young Leader award is business

leader and community volunteer Nellie

Hosseini Lupoli.

“It is not possible to overstate the impact

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.

The Lohmans are best known as successful

developers and operators of funeral

homes and cemeteries throughout the region.

Lowell began career in the funeral and cemetery

profession in the 1970s transitioning

from owning water/sewer treatment facilities.

Lowell has owned businesses individually

and with his family including his wife,

Nancy, his sons Ty and Brian, and his

brothers Victor and Daryl over the course of

his 50-year career. Lowell has owned and

operated more than 60 individual business

properties. Their family was the largest private

owners of funeral homes and cemeteries

in Florida for more than 30 years.

Nancy Lohman has also been widely recognized

for her work in the funeral home

and cemetery profession and in the community.

She was honored as one of the five

most influential businesswomen in the region

and received the most charitable award.

She received the Halifax Humane Society

Humanitarian Award, the Embassy of Hope

Hall of Fame Award for Community Service,

and has been honored as an outstanding

alumna of her alma mater, the Ohio

State University.

Together, the Lohmans have been honored

by the City of Ormond Beach, the Volusia

County Sheriff’s Department, the City of

Daytona Beach, the Florida Police Chiefs

Association, and the City of Ormond Beach

for various community volunteer initiatives.

Recently they received the Daytona Regional

Chamber of Commerce Lou Fuchs (pronounced

Fox) Award.

Today, having sold their funeral homes

and cemeteries, the Lohmans are owners

and developers of more than 4,000 apartments

and have expanded their philanthropic


Most recently, they organized the Halifax

Humane Society Capital Fund Drive

and provided $1 million donations to both

the Halifax Humane Society and the Council

on Aging to support programs to care for

the community’s aging population. They

have donated more than $4 million to charitable


along with Nancy’s

alma mater.

The Herbert M.

Davidson Memorial

Award for Outstanding

Community Service

was created by the

Community Foundation

in 1992 to honor

individuals who have

offered exceptional levels

of service to the


Nellie Hosseini


Former United States Congressman John

Mica, the 2017 recipient of the award,

commented on the legacy of Herbert M.

Davidson. “It is named

for the late Herbert

M. Davidson, former

publisher of the Daytona

Beach News-Journal.

Davidson was a

community leader, a

business leader, a journalism

pioneer, a civil

rights leader, a patron

of the arts, and a philanthropist.

His legacy

and that of his family

continues to impact

the community. To say that it is an honor to

receive this award is an understatement.”

Following the Lohmans leadership example

is the recipient of the Community

Foundation’s Young Leader Award, Nellie

Hosseini Lupoli. Nellie is Vice President of

Human Capital & Strategic Initiatives for

ICI Homes and a former Senior Financial

Analyst for Amazon. She earned bachelor’s

and master’s degrees in business and accounting

Economic Development Corporation,

Tomoka Community Development District,

and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s

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

important decisions.

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

personal property.

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

should include:

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?

Protect What


…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

and dependents.

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

by Matilda Charles

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

exercise option.

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,

for example.

• 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.

Send your tips, questions, or comments

to ask@pawscorner.com

Senior Service Line

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

you're getting.

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.

Strange But True

First Telephone Book

by Samantha Weaver

the highest reward ever offered for the

capture of Henry McCarty—the infamous

Kid—was $500.

• In a recent survey of people who admitted

to drinking beer, wine, and spirits,

more than 40 percent of respondents

• If you have a flannel-backed vinyl

tablecloth that gets a tear, don't throw

it out. You can cut it into rectangles

to line a shelf. Use a thin bead of

glue at the edges to keep them down,

and it makes a nice liner. You can

even use squares between pans as a

scuff guard.

—T.A. in Ohio

• Washcloths with tags on them can

be hung from an S hook on a towel

a few stitches through. It will absorb

any excess oil that is on the machine's

surface or needle.

collect cat hair from areas where

Kitty likes to nap—the back of the

a politician the keys to the city, it

might be better to change the locks.”

—Doug Larson

This Is A Hammer

regularly rubbed up against. Make

sure you use a sheet that has already

gone through the laundry.

• Idea for an old, unpaired sock: Insert

a tennis ball and tie closed, then give

to a dog as a toy.

—R. in Oregon.

(Here's another: Fill with clean, uncooked

white rice, and knot closed.

Heat in the microwave for a hot pack

to use on aching muscles.)

your combs or small brushes. Spray

the comb with alcohol and then use

the toothbrush to scrub it clean.
