'22 Thursday, August 14, 1997 Pabrump Valley Gazette Senior News I I I TONOPAH SENIOR N00-g , , (702) 482-6450 by Irene Cessna We are having a heat wave in our area. Temperatures reaching 95-100 degrees. And believe me, when it gets that hot in Tonopah, we really feel it. Time to pack up the car and head for the hills. Phyllis Sorhouet from the Nye County Sheriff's Depart- ment presented a video on the workings of con artists on the senior population. Beware of these people. They are profes- sionals and have no concern about who might get hurt from their manipulations.

Report anything suspicious to your local Sheriff's Department. Remember, the life you save may be your own. Phyllis plans to return soon with more information on how to cope with these problems. The Diabetic Support Group will hold it's monthly meet- ing on Wednesday, August 13, at 1 p.m. This months topic will be "Read the Labels" when doing your shopping. Diet is so important and the labels will help to determine what food you should purchase. According to the Aging Research and Training News publication, health care practitioners need to do more to educate the senior population about medication side effects and drug interactions. Many take medication to control chronic pain. A large percentage say the medication is effective, but one-fourth suffer from drug side effects. It is so important to discuss possible side effects with your doctor and be aware of drug reactions in your body. Over medicating could turn into a serious health problem. We thank Preston Causey for the garden fresh veggies and Dick and Maggie Trueba for the veggies they gave us. There is nothing more tasty than fresh produce right from the garden. We appreciate your kindness and support.

Uclet, BC on Vancouver Island, to be specific. The men fished for salmon, caught some, not trophy size, but nice Lorayne said. Meanwhile the girls checked out the local shops, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery while taking leisurely walks around the island. While there, there was the event called "Hot August Nights," a classic car showing from the 50s and 60s, and the foursome cruised around in Bobby's Ford Galaxy convertible which was great fun. Also, they attended a Lion's Club meeting, loyal Lions that they are, and were warmly greeted. We're glad that they had a wonderful vacation, and are safely back home, we missed them. Things are progressing nicely at the new senior center. Our big walk-in refrigerator and freezer units have been moved over there and installed, and should be ready for use any day now. It shouldn't be too much longer now before we get the green light to move in. We'll keep you posted.
