RIDING DOWN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FOURTH ANNUAL RIDE AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TAKING PLACE ON JULY 31 By Brad Klosner Pioneer Staff Writer MOUNT PLEASANT — In an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence as well as honor one of its victims, the fourth Annual Ride Against Domestic Violence will take place at the end of the month. “(Domestic violence) is prevalent in our society,” said organizer Shel Fox. “One in four women are victims of domestic violence.” Motorcyclists can begin registering at 10 a.m., with the run starting at 11 a.m. on July 31 in the Morning Sun parking lot, located at 711 W. Pickard St. in Mount Pleasant. Although the route is yet to be finalized, riders will cruise through Mount Pleasant then up U.S 127 to Clare and will end at the Evart Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge No. 2452, located just east of Evart on U.S. 10. The ride should end around noon. “When those guys start their motorcycles and head out of the parking lot, it brings tears to our eyes every time,” said organizer Beth Mills. “We get more riders every year.” The ride is held in honor of Mary Babb, an Evart native who was murdered by her husband on Jan. 9, 2007, in the parking lot of the Morning Sun, where she was employed. Thomas Babb was sentenced to 50 to 70 years in prison for the murder of his wife. “We loved her like she was our own,” Mills said. “We thought starting (in Mount Pleasant) and going ‘home’ was appropriate.” Originally, the motorcycle run was designed to raise money for the education of Sam Babb, 7, Mary’s son. However, Sam Babb’s family said that over the past three years, the motorcycle run has raised more than enough money for his future and insisted the money go to help area women’s shelters and organizations. “Were all about bringing awareness to domestic violence,” Mills said. “It’s one of those things that have been swept under the rug for too many years.” Last year, the ride brought out nearly 90 motorcyclists, who raised more than $3,000, which was donated to Sam Babb. This year, organizers hope to bring in more riders and raise more money, which will be donated to women’s shelters and organizations in Mecosta, Isabella and Newaygo. “This year we’re looking to triple the amount of people,” said social quarters and bar manager of the Moose Lodge Ed Siniarski. “It’s really important to us up here. People come and help us out (every year).” Fox said that over the past three years, the benefit ride has raised more than $10,000. “It’s a testament to the people who come out and ride an have dinner,” he said. “It’s just an amazing amount of support.” In addition, riders will be escorted by the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department during the entire ride. “We are so appreciative of that,” Fox said. “It’s just so outstanding.” After the ride, there will be a pulled pork and chicken meal with all the trimmings at the Moose Lodge. There also will be door prizes and a silent auction featuring a handmade graphite fishing rod with a Mary’s Dream inscription on it, two sets of Goldwing motorcycle pipes from TorqMaster of California, an autographed football signed by the Detroit Lions and autographed photographs of Detroit Red Wings. Anyone who does not wish to join the ride is encouraged to come to the Moose Lodge and enjoy the dinner. “Just come down to the Evart Moose Lodge and

break bread with us,” Siniarski said. “We want to get the word out (about domestic violence).” Registration fee for riders is $25 per bike and can be pre-registered by sending a check to Mary’s Dream C/O Beth Mills, 3434 North Sherman Road, Weidman, MI, 48893. Payments also can be made the day of the ride. Dinner costs $8 a person. Organizers are asking for attendees to pre-purchase dinner tickets for a head count. All proceeds will be donated to area women’s shelters and organizations. The motorcycle run is hosted by Mary’s Dream, a non-profit domestic violence organization, and The Grey Dragons Motorcycle Organization, and is sponsored by many area businesses. For more information or to register, contact Mills at (989) 644-3257 or Siniarski at (231) 734-5299. Additional information can be found at www. marysdream2008.com. CAMP 9-1-1 COMING IN JULY BIG RAPIDS — For seniors who want to be prepared for worst case scenarios, there is a day-camp available in July to train them for bad situations. The Retired Senior Volunteer Program is pleased to introduce Camp 9-1-1 (Safe Senior Day) in Mecosta County. The camp will go start at 9 a.m. on July 21 at the Big Rapids Department of Public Safety, located at 435 N Michigan Ave in Big Rapids. Camp 9-1-1 is a a one-day, hands–on learning and safety experience for older citizens free of charge. Adapted from a similar program for youth, Camp 9-1-1 for senior citizens will provide seniors with readiness training for a variety of incidents and emergencies. The camp is a collaborative effort among local law enforcement, fire departments, emergency medical services, the American Red Cross, emergency management, senior service providers, senior citizens who work to implement effective crime prevention and education programs for older community members. The workshops at the camp will include mock accident scenario, hazmat demo, ID theft/ scams/senior protection, first aid for shock treatment, a blood pressure clinic, crime scene processing and Fire Safety in the homes. In addition, to the scheduled workshops, emergency vehicles and simulators will be on site for seniors to tour. It is recommended that participants wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Pre-registration is required for the camp. For more information or to register, please contact RSVP at (231) 796-4848. OVERCOME YOUR EXERCISE BARRIERS (NewsUSA) - As sunny weather beckons, many Americans dust off their jump ropes, soccer balls and sports equipment. Some prepare for the beach. On the other hand, many others are inactive. If you are one of those who struggle to fit in exercise, know that you can find ways to overcome your barriers to better health. The Weight-control Information Network (WIN), an information service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), offers tips for overcoming the following barriers: “I am too busy.” No matter how busy you are, you can find ways to fit activity into your daily life. For example, designate one part of each day for physical activity. You can also schedule exercise in short bouts, such as taking 15-minute walks in the morning, at lunch, in the

afternoon and after dinner. Try performing active chores. Examples include gardening, washing cars, mowing grass and vacuuming. You can also get your family involved by taking family walks around your neighborhood and visiting community parks and recreation centers on weekends. “I am too tired.” At the end of a long day, doing anything but vegging in front of the television might seem downright Herculean. But here’s a secret: exercise gives you more energy. Going for a jog or brisk walk might help you feel less tired. Exercise also reduces stress, so a gentle walk can help you unwind after work. Finally, make exercise fun! If jogging on a treadmill sounds like torture, turn on your radio or portable music device and dance to your favorite song. “I don’t like physical activity.” How many times have you said that you just don’t like exercise? To bring more joy to physical activity, ask a friend to be your exercise buddy -- you can motivate each other and socialize at the same time. Also, choose an activity that you like, such as walking. You are more likely to stick with it. You can visit with a friend or take in the scenery as you walk. For more information, call WIN at 1-877-9464627 or visit www.win.niddk.nih.gov and read the free brochure, “Tips to Help You Get Active.” NEW TAX PERKS COULD HELP BUSINESSES SAVE THOUSANDS (NewsUSA) - New tax laws could save businesses thousands on their 2010 taxes. The tax breaks are meant to encourage businesses to add employees, purchase equipment and provide employee healthcare. The Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act included a payroll tax exemption for hiring and keeping new workers. Under the new law, businesses can exempt the 6.2 percent Social Security payroll tax for wages paid between March 18, 2010 and December 31, 2010, for each new employee meeting all the following criteria: * Hired after February 3, 2010, and before January 1, 2011 * Either unemployed during the 60 days before being hired or worked less than 40 hours in total during that 60-day period * Not a family member or other relative The exemption does not apply to wages paid to an employee hired to replace an existing worker, unless the existing worker left voluntarily or was terminated for cause. Employers are required to keep either Form W-11 or an affidavit signed by the employee (as proof they meet the criteria) in their records. The exemption is claimed on quarterly Form 941. Businesses retaining the employees for 52 consecutive weeks without significantly decreasing wages in the second half of the year can claim a new hire retention credit of up to $1,000 per worker on 2011 returns. The HIRE Act also extended the Section 179 first-year expensing cap on depreciable business property for 2010. The limit remains at $250,000 instead of decreasing to $125,000.

The $800,000 cost-of-equipment limit was also extended for 2010. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into law on March 23, 2010, allows businesses and tax-exempt organizations to earn a tax credit for providing or maintaining employee health insurance. Jessi Dolmage, spokeswoman for 2nd Story Software, makers of TaxACT, explained that businesses with 10 or fewer full-time equivalent employees with an average annual salary of $25,000 or less can earn the maximum credit of 35 percent, while tax-exempt organizations can receive 25 percent. Employers must pay at least half the cost of single coverage for employees. The credit decreases as the number of qualifying employees and average salary increase, phasing out at 25 full-time equivalent employees with an average salary of $50,000 or more. Family members do not qualify. In 2014, the maximum credit amount will increase to 50 percent of the premiums paid for businesses and 35 percent for tax-exempt organizations. Businesses can claim the credit under the general business credit, and the IRS will send instructions to tax-exempt organizations. More information about the HIRE Act, health care credit and other tax breaks for businesses can be found at www.irs.gov.

HOW TO BE A PREPARED PATIENT (NewsUSA) - Aches and pains aren’t always readily attributable to a particular disease, and receiving a medical diagnosis often takes more than one doctor’s visit. Doctor-patient teamwork can help facilitate an efficient and proper diagnosis. Becoming an advocate for your own health and knowing the right questions to ask your doctor can help. How can you take a more active role in helping your doctor understand your health condition? One simple solution provided by the Arthritis Foundation is to “Take P.A.R.T.” P - Prepare a list of questions, concerns and symptoms to discuss. Keep a detailed journal of your symptoms, including the times they occurred and associated environmental factors. For example, was a particular pain triggered by a certain food or activity? A - Ask questions during your appointment. It’s a good idea to bring a list of questions with you, as well as a friend or family member to ask questions you may not have identified. R - Repeat what your doctor recommends so you can be sure you understand. Ask for written instructions. T - Take action. Inform your doctor of your lifestyle and habits, as well as any concerns and preferences, so a treatment plan can be customized to your specific needs. “Patients who track their symptoms are better prepared to communicate effectively with their

doctors,” said Dr. John Klippel, CEO of the Arthritis Foundation. “Accurate information helps both parties work together to determine the best possible treatment options.” Fostering open communication with one’s doctor is particularly important for patients with hard-to-diagnose diseases like the autoimmune disorder rheumatoid arthritis (RA), as symptoms can be attributed to other medical conditions. Furthermore, there is no single diagnostic test for RA. There are programs that help patients and doctors work together to manage health conditions by communicating openly. The Arthritis Foundation’s Let’s Talk RA program, sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb, offers national meetings, educational podcasts and a communication kit that includes step-bystep discussion tips, as well as a symptom tracker that RA patients can use with their rheumatologists -; all at no cost. The Let’s Talk RA communication kit can be ordered at no charge through the Arthritis Foundation’s Web site, www.arthritis.org/ letstalkra or by calling 1-800-283-7800. PROGRAM HELPS KIDS SEE MORE CLEARLY (NewsUSA) - There’s nothing quite like seeing the world through a baby’s eyes, when everything from patterned carpet to the family cat becomes new and wondrous. And there’s a reason for all that fascination. Early in life, the brain and its visual pathways mature rapidly, developing the child’s ability to process visual feedback.

Those born with eye problems need quick intervention if they are ever to experience normal vision. For example, doctors often recommend that babies born with pediatric cataracts, or opaque areas on the eye lens, receive corrective surgery before they are six weeks old. Pediatric cataracts are rare in developed nations, affecting one to four children in every 100,000 births. Most babies born with cataracts end up with normal vision, thanks to a surgery that removes the affected lens. But children in developing nations may be 10 times as likely to be born with cataracts, and most don’t have easy access to surgeons. Left untreated, cataracts lead to blindness, which impacts future educational opportunities and the ability to earn income. One study found that, over 10 years, the global economic loss stemming from pediatric cataracts is somewhere between $1 billion and $6 billion. Luckily, some charitable organizations are working to help children escape lifelong impairment. For example, Lions Clubs International Foundation partnered with the Bausch + Lomb Early Vision Institute to create a new program, the Pediatric Cataract Initiative. The Pediatric Cataract Initiative will identify, fund and promote methods that will help treat pediatric cataracts in undeveloped areas. Most cataracts are preventable or treatable. When successfully treated with surgery and proper follow-up care, most children with pediatric cataracts will need little, if any, visual correction as adults.

“Too many newborns afflicted with pediatric cataract have a lifetime of vision loss and blindness ahead of them -- an untenable prospect in today’s world,” said Paul Sartori, corporate vice president, Bausch + Lomb. “With more funding and attention placed on research, prevention and treatment, we’ll be making an impact on the lives of children worldwide.” To learn how you can help, visit www. PediatricCataract.org. PROTECT YOURSELF: PLAN IN CASE OF DISABILITY (NewsUSA) - Monica, a 37-year-old professional and mother, shattered her elbow when she slipped on her porch. In most cases, the story would have ended there, but Monica wasn’t that lucky. After her elbow surgery, Monica developed a condition called osteonecrosis, which caused her bones to crumble. Once a successful worker in the financial sector, Monica became confined to a wheelchair and required a hired caretaker to bathe, eat and dress. Monica was awarded Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI), but it took two-and-ahalf years to start seeing payments -- years in which Monica couldn’t work and couldn’t afford rent. Monica used up her retirement savings to pay for her care. By the time she received SSDI, it was too late to save her finances. Unfortunately, Monica is not alone in neglecting to plan for disability. According to a 2009 Harvard study, over half of all personal bankruptcies are caused by illness or injury. Yet, many people fail to consider that disability can happen to them. According to the Council

for Disability Awareness (CDA), 60 percent of people feel that their chances of becoming disabled are 2 percent or less during their working years. The real number, according to the Social Security Administration, is 30 percent. But you can take steps to protect yourself. First, visit www.whatsmypdq.com to learn your Personal Disability Quotient (PDQ), or your chance of an injury or illness that will keep you out of the workplace for an extended amount of time. Then, evaluate your lifestyle and see if there are any changes you can make to reduce your chances of disability. The CDA recommends cultivating healthy behaviors, such as eating well and exercising to maintain a healthy weight. Regular check-ups and cancer screenings can catch problems before they lead to disability. Simply staying aware and using activityappropriate safety equipment, like seat belts, safety goggles and helmets, can help you avoid disabling injuries. “Through planning and prevention, people can minimize their chances of becoming disabled -- or at least minimize the financial impact a disability can have on their income and lifestyle,” said Barry Lundquist, president of the CDA. “For most people, their income is by far their most valuable asset, and their ability to earn that income cannot be taken for granted.”
