RESIDENT PROFILE
Myrna and Terry Barnard
Terry and Myrna
have been married
51 years. Their life
together started in
North Dakota.
Soon after marriage they moved to San Jose, California. Terry was a chef in an Elks Club there and then
he met a gentlemen that changed his life by getting
him interested in car racing. That lead to racing all
over the west coast with a trip to Georgia for the
National Championships each year. Racing was the
start of an automotive machine shop, fabrication shop
and owning a retail racing store. Later, he strictly
focused on building engines for Mazda racers from all
over the country.
Besides helping with the racing business, Myrna had
her own career in the advertising industry in Silicon
Valley. She feels lucky to have been in the right place
at the right time to experience some of the most

exciting electronic developments and meeting some
of the most influential people in the Bay Area at that
time. She was production manager for an advertising
agency whose clients included Apple Computer and
Intel Corporation.
In the early years of their retirement, they RV’d
around the country and decided to settle in Arizona.
They currently split their time between their lake
cabin in Minnesota and their home here in Sun City
Festival.
At Festival, they were instrumental in starting the
Canadian American Club and are active within the golf
community. Terry served on the Men’s Golf Group and
the Canadian American Club Board Of Directors. Myrna has served on a Women’s Golf Group committee
and is currently on the Canadian American Club Board
Of Directors. One of the other attractions of living
in Sun City Festival is having the desert so accessible
for taking their Razor out for a ride with friends.

Bee Safety - Stay Alert
The best safety advice is to avoid an
encounter with unfriendly honey bees
and be alert. Honey bees sting to
defend their colony, so be on the look
out for honey bee swarms and colonies. Watch for bees coming in and out of an opening such
as a crack in a wall, or the hole in a water meter box. Listen
for the hum of an active bee colony. Look for bees in holes
in the ground, holes in trees or cacti, and in sheds. Be extra
careful when moving junk that has been lying around.
Bee Prepared! Wear light-colored clothing. Experience has
shown that bees tend to attack dark things. Dark clothing,
dark hair, any thing dark in color could draw the bees. A
USDA entomologist says that when he inspected apiaries he
could often tell that they were Africanized by the number of
stings he got in his black leather camera case.
Avoid wearing floral or citrus aftershaves or perfumes when
hiking. Bees are sensitive to odors, both pleasant and
unpleasant. The smell of newly cut grass has been shown to
rile honey bees.
Check around your house and yard at least once a month
to see if there are any signs of bees taking up residence. If
you do find a swarm or colony, leave it alone and keep your
family and pets away. Call a professional bee exterminator to
remove the swarm in a safe manner.
If a swarm of bees is seen in a common area of the community or on the golf course for more than a couple days,
please contact the Community Association main number at
928-252-2100 to report the exact location. Do not call 911
or the Fire Dept. unless a bee attack is in progress.

Keeping Your

by Chuck Eier, M.S. C.S.C.S.,
Fitness/Wellness Director

Now that HOT weather has arrived, odds of heat-related illness increase
substantially. Heat-related illness can be as minor as fatigue and muscle
cramps, or as major as death. The best treatment for heat-induced illness is
prevention. All heat-related problems are preventable. Prolonged exposure to
extreme heat begins a cascade of worsening problems in the body.

Pilates 8:45 am (ballroom)
Body Sculpting & Balance 10:00 am
Aqua Aerobics 10:00 am

Yoga 5:30 pm

Two of the body’s main methods of cooling are radiation and
evaporation. In radiation, the body’s heat production,
substantially increased during exercise, radiates into the
surrounding atmosphere. When the air is hot, less heat is
carried away from the body. During evaporation, sweat formed
on the skin evaporates into the air and cools the skin as it
dries. In high humidity and extreme heat, evaporation is less
effective. Higher sweat production leads to dehydration and to
less effective cooling.

Wednesdays

During exercise, radiation is accomplished via opening of blood vessels near
the surface of the skin and shunting of blood to the surface. During this shunting process, blood is moved from the internal organs possibly leading to organ
damage or failure. In some conditions of extreme heat, this can lead to the
body’s absorption of heat rather than radiation.

S.E.T. 8:00 am
Cardio Burn 9:15 am
Strength, Stretch, Balance 10:30 am
Equipment Orientation 3:00 pm
Yoga 5:30 pm

Medications such as diuretics and blood thinners magnify the effects of
heat on the body. With these medications, heat-related problems can
occur more easily and more quickly. Symptoms of heat-related illness
can be extreme thirst, headache, lightheadedness, nausea and vomiting,
involuntary muscle contraction and fainting.
A more important way to prevent heat-related illness is to drink plenty of nondiuretic fluids. Fluid consumption should be ongoing and not limited to times
of heat exposure. Most research recommends approximately
2.5 liters (about 2.6 quarts) of water per day for most adults, the
minimum requirement for daily living. Heat exposure and exercise increase a person’s need to a level far beyond the minimum
requirement. For each additional 1,000 calories burned beyond
the typical 2,000 per day, water needs increase by 35-40 ounces.
American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends 500
ml (17 ounces) of water consumption two hours prior to exercise.
During exercise, ACSM recommends 150 ml (about 5 oz) of water
every fifteen minutes. During exercise in very hot or very humid conditions, water demands for cooling the body are even greater. From a weight perspective,
16 ounces of water should be consumed for every pound of body weight lost
during exercise. A simple rule of thumb is to produce clear, frequent urine.
Great ways to avoid heat illness are to limit outdoor time to cooler periods of
the day and wear light-colored, loose-fitting, moisture-wicking clothing. Light
colors will reflect heat. Breathable fabric helps perspiration evaporate from the
skin more quickly and easily.
During this time of extreme temperatures, heat-related illness is easily
prevented through fluid consumption, proper dress, and timing of heat
exposure.
