Manistee County Community Foundation celebrates silver anniversary


MANISTEE In October 1986 the Manistee County Community Foundation was established with a simple idea. If 1,000 people gave $1,000 each, the community would have a significant fund to carry out important projects. The Manistee County Community Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary on Wednesday evening at the Manistee Golf & Country Club. It reached the $1 million goal in 2004 and earlier this year its assets eclipsed $2 million. We are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years of building community by enhancing the quality of life in Manistee County for good and forever, said Rosalind Jaffee, chair of the foundations board of directors during her welcome and introductions. We thank everyone who is here tonight for your many roles in supporting the community foundation, Jaffe added Whether its as a donor, a grantee, a

past board member, staff, community partner or volunteer, or sometimes a mix of the above, your collective efforts have benefited our community in countless ways over the past 25 years thank you very much. Immediate past chair Beth McCarthy took several minutes to honor the founders of the organization. Back in 1986 a group of folks were struck by the progress that neighboring communities were making while Manistee seemed to be standing still, McCarthy said. Frustrated by the knowledge that significant community dollars were going elsewhere, being donated to causes outside Manistee County, a small group of people met to discuss a brighter future. In May of 1986, Bill Moore, Pat Kamaloski, Tom Kubanek, Bill Seng, Bill Anderson, Chris Laursen and John Della Pia sat down to talk about what could be done to help Manistee prosper and grow. Bill Moore laid out a concept. If 1,000 people gave $1,000, wed have a $1 million to work with. By October, almost exactly 25 years ago today, the vision of that small group of people became a reality, McCarthy said. The Manistee County Community Foundation was born, thereby creating a permanent vehicle through which anyone can give to support the quality of life in

Stroke: Time is of the essence


NORTH AMERICAN PRECIS SYNDICATE

Did you know that stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States? Each year, approximately 795,000 people suffer a stroke and more than 137,000 people will die from complications related to stroke. Nearly 85 percent of all strokes are acute ischemic strokes, which occur when a blood clot in an artery or vessel of the brain prevents brain cells from getting the oxygen-carrying blood they need to function. This blockage causes brain cells to start dying and results in a sudden loss of brain function. Stroke can result in permanent mental and physical impairments, such as trouble thinking, speaking or moving. It is estimated that approximately 1.9 million brain cells die each minute during a large-vessel stroke; therefore, time is of the essence when seeking medical attention. Do not hesitate if you or a loved one begins to experience the signs and symptoms of stroke, said Justin A. Zivin, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neurosciences at the University of California at San Diego. Call 9-1-1 immediately in order to seek medical attention. Signs and symptoms of stroke include speech impairment, arm numbness and weakness, severe headache, sudden confusion, trouble seeing out of one or both eyes, as well as uncontrollable drooping of the face. In the event that you or someone you know begins to show signs and symptoms of a stroke, the F.A.S.T. test can be used as a quick

Does one side of the face droop? n Arms Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? n Speech Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he or she repeat the sentence correctly? n Time If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important. Immediate medical attention may limit the effects of stroke. Therefore, call 9-1-1 or get to the hospital immediately. To learn more about stroke, see your doctor or visit www.stroke. org.

What teen drivers need to know


NORTH AMERICAN PRECIS SYNDICATE
By improving their driving skills, teen drivers can reduce their risk of spinal cord injuries. According to the experts at Shriners Hospitals for Children, motor vehicle crashes are the No. one cause of death for those between the ages of 16 and 24. Motor vehicle crashes are also the leading cause of spinal cord injuries in all age groups. Being aware of the risk factors and improving driving skills may help reduce this risk especially for young drivers. Factors that contribute to crashes include driver inexperience, distractions, speeding, peer pressure, driving with other teens in the car, and the use of alcohol and illegal drugs. Tips for Safe Driving: n Give driving your full attention. Driving is a privilege. n Follow the rules of the road and obey speed limits. n Always wear a seat belt. n If transporting younger passengers, properly restrain children under age 12 in the backseat, and place children in age- and height- and weight-appropriate safety or booster seats. n Avoid distractions unrelated to driving. Distractions include texting or reading, talking on the phone including using a headset, earpiece or speakerphone eating, fatigue, arguing, an animal that is loose in the car, disruptive passengers, alcohol or other drugs, and loud music. n Never get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. Even a single drink, whether you can feel it or not, can affect your judgment enough to cause a crash. n Be aware of the side effects of prescription medications before driving. n Use your side and rearview mirrors every five to seven seconds. n Never write, read or send text messages while driving. Thousands of fatal accidents have been linked to distractions like texting. n Always have a safety zone or safety hole: a space to your left or right to drive into during an emergency. For more information on safer driving, you can visit www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org.

What women need to HAVE A STORY IDEA? know to reduce their risk
NORTH AMERICAN PRECIS SYNDICATE
Last year, 280,000 women in the U.S. were diagnosed with breast and gynecological cancers. As a group, these are the most often diagnosed cancers in women. Joanne Mortimer, M.D., director of Womens Cancers Program of City of Hope, says that there are three ways women can reduce their risk of the cancers that primarily affect them. First, they can learn more about breast and gynecological cancer so they can recognize the symptoms. Second, they should get regular screenings, because all cancers can most effectively be treated at an early stage. And, third, women should learn about preventive measures, says Mortimer. Here are some facts from the City of Hope cancer center:

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are the main risk factor. A weakened immune system, having many sexual partners, smoking, having other sexually transmitted diseases and longterm birth control use all add to risk. Symptoms include abnormal vaginal bleeding, increased vaginal discharge, pelvic pain and pain during intercourse. A new vaccine provides protection from HPV and is recommended for girls aged 926. Risk factors include age, family history, hormonal factors, alcohol use and obesity. Symptoms include changes in the way the breast or nipple feels or looks and nipple discharge.

CerviCal CanCer

Regular screening is an important way for women to protect themselves from cancer. An ovarian cyst can develop on the surface of an ovary or inside it. Most are benign but if the cyst is cancerous, it can spread to other organs. Risk factors include family and reproductive history, age, hormonal factors and obesity. Symptoms include pressure or pain in the abdomen, pelvis, back or legs, nausea, indigestion and feeling tired. Less common symptoms include vaginal bleeding and a frequent need to urinate. If you experience any of these symptoms, discuss them with your doctor. If needed, seek help at a qualified cancer center such as City of

To help you stay on the safe side of such statistics, Targets chief medical director and father of three, Dr. Joshua Riff, tackles five flu myths. Myth: The flu shot can give you the flu. Truth: A flu shot contains dead or inactive viruses needed to prime your body to fight an infection but these viruses are not contagious. Some people may experience side effects or coincidentally catch a cold after being vaccinated but you cannot get influenza from the flu shot. Myth: Only the young or the elderly need to get vaccinated for the flu. Truth: Everyone can benefit from the flu vaccine. Those in high-risk categories are more susceptible to serious consequences from the flu but everyone plays a role in protecting the community by getting vaccinated. Myth: You must be vaccinated before November for the flu shot to be effective. Truth: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting the flu shot as soon as its available. While its best to get vaccinated early, its never too late. Myth: I dont need the vaccine because Ive already had the flu. Truth: Each year,

there are at least two strains of influenza that circulate. You can be infected with one type and subsequently get the other. In other cases, you might think you had influenza but you really just had a cold. Myth: Eating oranges will protect me from the flu. Truth: Many studies have evaluated the role vitamin C has on the immune system. Most concluded that taking vitamin C does not decrease your risk of getting sick. The bottom line: Vitamin C cant hurt but getting vaccinated is key to preventing the flu. If you think the flu is something to sneeze at, think again. The CDC reports that 36,000 people die annually from the flu and it causes more than 200,000 hospitalizations. Dr. Riffs Top 10 Flu Essentials 1. A flu shot 2. Hand sanitizer 3.

MCCF: Community

foundation Celebrates
County Community Foundation administers over 55 different funds that meet a diverse array of community needs. Foundation board member Ted Arens spoke on how local residents can use the foundation to leave significant legacies. For a number of years, the Manistee County Community Foundation has been aware that very generous people in and outside of our community have made arrangements to leave a future gift to the community foundation through a bequest, in their will or another type of planned gift, Arens said. They have recognized that the community foundation is ideally suited to administer these type of gifts and that over time they will have far greater impact than an outright gift. We know that 70 percent of people make annual contributions to charity during their lifetime, but only 10 percent make arrangements for a planned gift for our future. We also know that planned gifts allow

to a community and country you love, the community foundation is a perfect vehicle for you to channel your passion. To close the celebration, Jaffe said, Thanks to all of you for the trust, confidence, and effort as weve worked together over the past 25 years to build community through the Manistee County Community Foundation. While we are exceedingly proud of our collective accomplishments, we are focusing on the work ahead of us and there is a lot to achieve in the coming years. The needs of Manistee County are great, so our work is important and challenging. Please join with your community foundation over the next 25 years and beyond to help Manistee County to reach its full potential.

McCarthy read the names of the founding members William Moore, chair; Tom Kubanek, vice chair; John Berlin, secretary; Pat Kamoloski, treasurer; Judy Atwood, Walter Fischer, Dr. James Olney, Kurt Schindler, William Seng and Robert Matthews. She also asked other past board members of the foundation to stand, as well as former staff members. Current executive director Laura Heintzelman talked about some of the work

the foundation has done in the past 25 years. We help people do good things for our community that last forever, Heintzelman said. She noted that several years ago the foundation became an affiliate of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, and by doing so the local assets became part of a combined pool of over $100 million that allows for a more diversified portfolio and lower fees. According to Heintzelman, the Manistee

Arens discussed one foundation fund that he helped start. Many of you know that I am involved with supporting veterans, he said. The American soldier has shaped my entire life. They liberated the Netherlands in World War II, they freed two of my uncles from Nazi concentration camps, their kindness caused my father to immigrate to America, they transferred me from a boy into a man in the Marine Corps, I served with them in Vietnam and I was educated with them through the G.I.

If you take preventative steps before the bad weather hits, you shouldnt get stranded on the road this winter.

Ready your ride for rough weather


NORTH AMERICAN PRECIS SYNDICATE
By taking a few preventative maintenance steps, you can keep your car on the road to safety and savings when temperatures drop. n Check the air pressure in your tires regularly and make sure your spare tire is also inflated properly. Contrary to the popular belief that you should reduce your tire pressure in cold weather, the fact is, tire pressure usually lowers itself in winter and raises itself in summer. All you need to do is maintain the pressure at the level recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Dont inflate your tires based on the maximum pressure listed on the sidewall of the tire you do have to make sure you dont over inflate. n Cold temperatures can be hard on a battery. Check the condition of the battery cable, posts and fasteners for rust and corrosion. Have your battery checked by a professional who will check for corrosion and check the electrical system. n Try using a synthetic oil, which generally contains fewer impurities and has much more consistent molecular structure compared to a comparable quality mineral oil. These differences result in better frictional characteristics (less friction), better natural cold flow and a more consistent viscosity across a wide temperature range. The better cold flow is especially beneficial at a cold start. The engine will start easier and the oil gets to where it needs to be quicker. Viscosity is a liquids thickness and resistance to flow and all engine oils thicken with decreasing temperature and thin with increasing temperature. With a high-quality synthetic engine oil, such as Royal Purple, the viscosity changes less with changing temperature, so the oil stays closer to the optimal thickness for engine operation. High-quality synthetic engine oils also typically have a better pour point than nonsynthetic oils. The pour point is the lowest temperature at which the oil can be poured out of a container. Conventional oils can become so thick at low temperatures they wont pour out of the bottle. Synthetics will generally retain pourability at much lower temperatures for a given viscosity grade. n Protect your vehicles fluid lines from freezing. Flush and refill your cooling system with a 50/50 mixture. You should have a minimum of 20 percent antifreeze concentration in a street-driven vehicle.
