Beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Kings Point in the 2020 building. Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. A study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only.

TUE. OCT 10 - WARRIOR 2 WARRIOR - A VETERAN SUICIDE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT PRESENTATION
11:00 a.m. SCC Community Hall, 1910 S. Pebble Beach Blvd Sun City Center. Co-directors: Ms. Susan Ullman, the wife of an Army Green Beret who succumbed to suicide. Navy Seal CAPT Tom Chaby, USN (Ret). Former Commander of Seal Team 5. Catered by Banquet Masters. They operate with a nationwide network of volunteers overseen by only one paid staff member. Unlike most programs grown out of some bureaucracy or institution, W2W was designed and developed by Special Operations, their wives and families. It’s dif-ferent, it’s not run by bureaucrats, it’s run by warriors for warriors. The warrior ethos makes it nearly impossible for a teammate to ask for help. Fight through the injury, don’t admit weakness, keep it inside. Asking for help risks stigma, marginalization, loss of security clearances, or worse. The VA and DoD bureaucra-cies are ineffective and most importantly…..this is critical…..they have no mechanism to identify teammates early on the glide slope to trouble. What these Special Operations veterans and their families came up with is a personalized peer driven deinstitutionalized program that breaks down the barriers and stigma to getting emo-tional help. Instead of using mental health screenings, self referrals, or waiting for a crisis, Warrior 2 Warrior uses physical rehabilitation and physical therapy to gain ac-ceptance. These guys will readily go through the “Physical Therapy” door, they’re hesitant to go through the “Mental Health” door. It works because there is no stigma attached to physical rehabilitation. Reservations required. Point of contact for MOAA, MOWW, MFST Frank Kepley — 642-0801 dkepley@tampabay.rr.com. Others: contact your service organization to make a reservation. Lunch fee: $14.00 (payable at door). NON REFUNDABLE

Caring for those who care – VA Caregiver Support Program values your commitment 
Caregivers play an important role in the health and well-being of Veterans, and caring for a wounded, ill, or injured Veteran is not easy work. Without family caregivers, many of these Veterans could not remain close to family and in their communities.
VA knows that family caregivers who care for Veterans in their own homes have been putting Veterans first since the founding of our nation. That’s why VA’s Caregiver Support Program provides training and education to enhance the caregiver’s role. The program focus is to improve the care-giver’s understanding of the impact their work has on the health and well-being of the Veteran they care for and their families as well as how their work affects them, too.
Caregivers who participate in VA’s Caregiver Support Program tell us that the program has helped them feel more confident in their role, that it has made them even more proficient in supporting the Veteran they care for in treatment and rehabilitation.
To learn more about the VA Caregiver Support Program, visit the Caregiver Website or call the Caregiver Support Line at 1-855-260-3274. You can also contact your local Caregiver Support Coordinator located at every VA medi-cal center across the United States.

For our Veterans: Congressman Bilirakis Introduces Bill to Compensate Veterans Fairly - WASHINGTON, D.C.
U.S. Representative Gus Bilirakis (FL-12) has introduced the Retired Pay Restoration Act (H.R. 303), legislation allowing Veterans to receive both military retired pay and VA disability compensation. This is the first bill introduced by Bilirakis in the 115th Congress. “The men and women who dedicated their lives to serving our nation should be compensated fairly for their sacrifices,” said Bilirakis. “I introduced the Retired Pay Restoration Act to ensure that all Veterans who receive retirement payments following their military service can also receive disability payments from the VA. With this bill, we’re making sure Veterans are getting the benefits they have earned and deserve.” Under current law, many Veterans with service-connected injuries have their disability pay deducted from their retirement pay—even though they are completely different benefits. The Retired Pay Restoration Act would make sure these two benefits do not count against each other. The legislation will now head to the House Veterans Affairs Committee and the House Armed Services Committee for consideration. Introduced Jan 5, 2017. To follow this bill go to Congress.gov

EMERGING CRIME INFORMATION: DECEPTION BUGLARIES
Deception burglaries and home improvement scams occur year-round, but are known to increase when the weather gets warmer. These criminals are on the move and typically travel together in pairs.  They will pose as utility workers, contractors, landscapers, or any other profession that commonly deals with homes.   One suspect will distract the homeowner, while the other suspect secretly enters the home to search for valuables and cash.  You can stay ahead of the scam by following these simple tips:
Be aware of strangers coming to your door to offer home repairs or lawn maintenance
Avoid letting strangers inside your home to conduct security or utility inspections
Ask to see employment verification and credentials for anyone claiming to be with a local utility company
Be leery of maintenance visits that you did not previously schedule  


SCAM ALERT:  If a nice young man comes to your door and asks you to come outside so he can show you something on your property that he can help you fix, be wary. We have an incident in town where our resident stepped out with the fellow around back but then, on coming in, found a female companion inside the house. She dropped a piece of jewelry as she was leaving; our resident quickly went into the bedroom and found all sorts of things missing in there. (Thanks John)

New e-publication “The SCC Curmudgeon Report”, providing insight into the goings on in Sun City Center and SouthShore. Produced by Bob Black. With a rich history in correspondence, Bob began writing in Korea when he got out of a combat infantry company in 1952 and took on the 2nd Infantry Division newspaper and then on to Stars & Stripes in Tokyo.  Totaling 65 years of covering the news, sometimes interrupted by 40 years of owning a public relations firm and retiring to Sun City Center in 2002 where he began as a columnist, writer and editor of The NEWS of Sun City Center.  After spending four years on the Community Association Board of directors, Bob went on to became a golf and sports writer for the SCC Sun when it was a weekly newspaper owned by the Tampa Tribune and then the SCC Observer as a columnist.  He is now a “correspondent” for the Tampa Bay (born as the St. Petersburg) Times. The “SCC Curmudgeon Report” will make space available for critical discussion from the general public with a few ground rules:  1.  Keep it to 200 words; 2. No name-calling, no libelous statements; 3.  Positive or negative, keep it on one subject; 4.  The will choose what gets printed and edit for length; 5. Sign your name and put your phone number with it so we can confirm it’s you writing the letter.  We won’t run the phone number, we will run your name. To receive the report or contribute, email Bob at (rgblack.scc@gmail.com)


SCC Lamplighters: There is a new group in town and I couldn’t be happier to wish them success in a project that epitomizes the spirit of the Sun City Center lifestyle. They call themselves the SCC Lamplighters and their goal is to make Sun City Center a safer and brighter place to live. If your street lamp at the foot of your driveway is burned out, they will come and replace it!  There is no charge for their labor; if the homeowner can pay for a replacement bulb, they will ask you to do so, but if you cannot pay for it, they will supply it at no cost. How wonderful it would be to look down a street in Sun City Center and see those quiet lights at every driveway.  Sound good?  Call 813-505-5927 and they will make an appointment to come to your home to replace the bulb.  


From John Bowker and worthy of sharing: There is a club in town I have never helped publicize.  Back some 5 years ago a group of people who love to fish found each other and organized a monthly schedule of meetings.  They often have guest speakers, fish fries twice a year (yes, their own fish!), along with trips out into the salt water and to the Skyway Fishing Pier and more. More information at:  castawayanglersFL@gmail.com   Their webpage is www.castawayanglersclubfl.org   or you can call Bob Preston at 813-404-5507.

Our Lady’s Pantry - Can you help feed our neighbors? By sharing your time? “It requires a considerable effort to run Our Lady's Pantry," says Anita Bullaro, co-director of Our Lady’s Pantry, along with her husband Tom. "We could never do this work without our many helpers. Volunteers come when they can, and leave whenever they wish. No formal commitment is required. If you would like some more information about helping out, just stop in some Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday morning.” You can find us immediately south of Sun City Center Blvd., on U.S. Highway 301, in Wimauma. We are in back of the classroom building on the far right-hand corner of the Mission Center. We welcome donations of unexpired, non-perishable, nutritious food. Kindly bring your donations to the Pantry whenever it is open. "Every little bit helps," says Anita. We purchase most of our food for $.18 a pound at Feeding America, a regional food bank in Tampa Bay. Feeding America, however, supports more than 100 other food pantries in Central Florida. Sometimes there's not enough food to go around. On those occasions, we must purchase food at current market prices, considerably draining our resources. If you can help, kindly send a check to Our Lady’s Pantry — Food, c/o Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission, 16650 U.S. Highway South; Wimauma, Fl. 33598. Thank you for your help. 3/30/17
