(Submitted Photo) Zimmerman shares her life path BY NANCY SPENCER  DHI Media OTTOVILLE — Stu-dents at Ottoville Schools got a rather surprising message on Thursday from an alumnus, “It’s OK to not have your whole life planned out in high school!”Staff Sgt. Baily Zimmer-man of the U.S. Air Force and a 2007 Ottoville gradu-ate brought her message to her fellow Big Green as part of the school’s Veterans Day observance.“During my time at Ot-toville High School, I had several dreams, goals and ideas of what I wanted my life to be. There wasn’t one direct path that would take me to all the places I want-ed to go,” Zimmerman said. “That was when I decided to make my own path.” Ottoville alumni and Air Force Staff Sgt. Baily Zimmerman, left, reconnects with several students she had in a cheer camp during high school during her visit to Ottoville on Thursday.

(DHI Media/Nancy Spencer) New outreach program serves military families BY STEPHANIE GROVES DHI Media Staff LIMA - Veterans are all around us. They are family members, neighbors and friends who have diverse experiences in the Armed Forces and share a willingness to serve our country through military service.The Partnership for Violence Free Families (PVFF) in Lima is offering a free-of-charge community outreach program called “Family of Heroes” geared toward assisting West Cen-tral Ohio military family members to learn the essential skills to manage the challenges they may face when helping a veteran returning home to adjust to post-deployment life.Prevention Program Facilitator Tim Ulrick, who is an Army veteran, said the program is a six session avatar-based workshop in a sup-portive group setting and each session runs for one hour. Ulrick is teaming up with facilitator Katie Murphy, LISW who is the daughter of an Air Force veteran.Family of Heroes is an online role-playing training game designed to help families of re-turning veterans learn essential skills to man-age common challenges in adjusting to post-deployment life and connect more veterans experiencing post-deployment stress with VA services.In the game, players enter a virtual environ-ment and engage in three conversations with emotionally responsive avatars that exhibit signs of PTSD, TBI, depression, and thoughts of suicide. The avatars act and respond like real veterans experiencing post-deployment stress, thereby providing users with hands-on practice within a realistic and risk-free learn-ing environment.

Earlier this year she fi-nally let me color it red, which I have wanted for years. I went blond for my sister’s wedding, but I’m naturally blond and I don’t like it because it’s boring. A ton of people compliment me on my hair, but I don’t care what people think, I just want to be me and not anyone else.So, my mom is being too controlling. She says I have to stay blond until I can pay for it myself, and I don’t have a job. My parents are very strict and I would never be allowed to get a tattoo, but I want my red hair back. How do I go about convincing her that no mat-ter how much people love the blond, I don’t like it and I want a change? — NATURAL BLONDE IN PENNSYLVA-NIADEAR NATURAL BLONDE: When a person changes hair color more than twice in one year, it can seri-ously damage the hair. Also, red is the hardest color to keep up because it tends to oxi-dize and turn “brassy.” (I am speaking from experience.) It can also be expensive. If you want to “go red” once you’re working and can afford it, you can make your own decision. But in the meantime, listen to your mother — she’s looking out for your interests.** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a wom-an in my 20s and finishing up two degrees at university. I am an only child, and my mother is one of the youngest among 10 siblings, so I have many cousins.I have always been the “good one,” the one who is responsible, not addicted to drugs and who has a prom-ising future. Because of this, my childless aunts and un-cles and those with irrespon-sible children have looked to me for moral support and guidance during their golden years. Many of them are now in their 60s.Abby, I already have to take care of my parents as they grow older. This stress as an only child and the “re-sponsible cousin” weighs heavily on me. What would you advise? — THE GOOD ONEDEAR GOOD ONE: Rec-ognize what your limitations are and pace yourself accord-ingly. As you start your pro-fessional life and, eventually, your own family, it’s impor-tant that you not allow your-self to be spread so thin you make yourself sick. Your first responsibility must be to your-self, your immediate family and your parents. If looking out for your aunts and uncles becomes more time- and en-ergy-consuming than you can handle, consider enlisting the help of a social worker.** ** **DEAR ABBY: During meals, my girlfriend uses her fingers to push the food on her plate onto her fork. She does it not only when we’re at home — just the two of us — but also out in public at restaurants. This can’t be proper manners, can it? How can I get her to stop without upsetting her? Or am I better off not bringing up the subject? — UNCERTAIN IN SAN FRANCISCODEAR UNCERTAIN: What your girlfriend is doing is considered poor table man-ners. Because she’s having trouble maneuvering her food onto her fork, suggest to her that she should do what some Europeans do — push it onto the fork using the blade of her knife.** ** **Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Ange-les, CA 90069.** ** **COPYRIGHT 2014 UNI-VERSAL UCLICK1130 Walnut, Kansas City, MO 64106; 816-581-7500 Blonde sees red in  battle over hair color  Dear Readers: Here is a test of your HELOISE HINT IQ: Which cleaning product can be affected by heat, light and time?A) Hydrogen peroxideB) AmmoniaC) Bleach Do you know? The correct answer is A and B. Both chemicals lose much of the cleaning strength as well as the ability to kill germs after time, especially if exposed to light and heat. So when using them, remember to make up enough to use in only a day or so. — HeloisePET PALDear Readers: Annie in San Antonio sent in a photo of her cat, Semira, curled up on the bed and peering up at the cam-era with her big, green eyes. She is a crossbreed of a domestic cat and a serval (large-eared African cat), and has a beautiful, unique pattern to her coat. To see the photo, visit my website,, and click on “Pets.” — HeloiseSAFETY HINTDear Heloise: For your readers, especially those who live alone, keep this in mind: When new service people come to my house, I go through afterward and double-check window locks and entry doors. You never know when someone might have opened a window or gone in and out a door. — Lives Alone in Columbus, OhioMost repair people are honest, but it’s always a good idea to check doors and windows regardless. — HeloiseNEW KITTENDear Heloise: Regarding your recent column printed in the San Angelo (Texas) Standard-Times about litter-box training a kitten, here is an additional hint: Keep the kitten confined to a small area for a few days to let it get accustomed to its new fam-ily and surroundings. Gradually increase its surroundings so it can start exploring new territory. Leave the added rooms open to the kitten when it begins exploring adjoining rooms. This way, it can explore at its own pace and have its srcinal safe place to return to. Turning a tiny kitten loose in a new house is a scary thing for it. Even a small house will appear huge to a tiny kitten. — A Cat Lover, via emailMeow! Good advice, and say “Hi” to my friends in San An-gelo. I always have a lovely time when I visit for a speech. — Hugs, HeloiseSLIDING CHAIRDear Heloise: I have a large lounge chair that would not stay put. I remembered your hint about using a piece of mesh liner. I cut pieces to fit the bot-tom of the chair legs and used sticky tape to attach them. No more sliding around. — Ron B., San Bernardino, Calif.STAYING SAFEDear Heloise: When iron-ing, I set out my cookie cooling rack. When done or between garments, I put the iron on it as a precaution. We had a small “mishap” when I forgot to turn off the iron and unplug it. Nev-er again! — No Name, Kansas City, Kan.(c)2014 by King Features Syndicate Inc.

Whether it’s for two days a week, for continuous twenty four hour care or end-of-life support, home care can allow patients to remain in their homes, protect their independence, and preserve their dignity.The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has chosen four different themes for this year’s cel-ebration to represent core home care and hospice services. For Home Health, the theme is “Home is the Center of Health Care.” The Hospice theme is: “Hospice = Love in Action.” The Private Duty theme is “Loving Care Tailored to Each Fam-ily’s Needs.” The Home Care Aide Week (November 9-15, 2014) theme is: “Caring in Action.”“It’s important for the public to under-stand the different services available in home care and the availability of agen-cies that provide those services,” said Amy Zalar, RN, supervisor of Commu-nity Health Professionals of Delphos.Non-medical home care and medical, skilled home health care are two very dif-ferent things. Non-medical home care is ideal for individuals, especially seniors, who would prefer to remain in their own home rather than move into a nursing fa-cility but need some assistance to do so comfortably and safely.This type of home care is usually re-ferred to as personal care or companion care, and services range from transpor-tation, errands, light housekeeping, meal preparation and assistance with activities of daily living.“For the most part, non-medical home care is a private pay service, meaning it is not covered by Medicare or Medicaid programs and must be paid for indepen-dently,” said Zalar. “However, there are some state government programs, like Passport that individuals may qualify for that will assist in payment for these ser-vices.” Diabetic support class offered INFORMATION SUBMITTED ST. MARYS — The Dia-betic Support Group will meet on Monday evening, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. in conference room 1 at Joint Township District Me-morial Hospital. The morning class will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. The pro-gram for November is titled Diabetes Medications with Krissy Mullenhour, RN, BSN, CDE. Did you know that there are many different classes of medications to help manage diabetes, not even including insulin? This month, we will explore the different classes of medications, including how they work and possible side effects. All diabetics, family members and interested per-sons are invited to attend. For more information concerning this program or any of Joint Township Hospital’s Diabetic Services, contact the hospital (419) 394-3335, ext. 2147.

Skilled home health services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, most private in-surances and veteran’s benefits.“Home health services include medi-cation management; wound care; physi-cal, occupational, and speech therapies; and other skilled services provided by licensed individuals,” said Zalar. “It re-quires a physician’s order, and that the patient is under the care of a physician.”In most cases, insurance providers stipulate that a patient must be home-bound and need intermittent, skilled services to qualify for visiting nurses services. Home bound doesn’t mean that a patient must be bedbound or confined to home, but it must be difficult for the patient to leave home unassisted.Hospice care provides a combination of care to help patients and families focus on living when a loved one is terminally ill.“The notion of the end of life being near can certainly be scary and lonely for the patient and their loved ones,” said Zalar. “Hospice sees this time as an im-portant time of living.”The hospice team relieves those feel-ings of loneliness and anxiety; helps pro-vide comfort and security with expert medical care and can even help attain last wishes. By helping patients live the last phase of their journey fully, hospice allows patients to feel a sense of much needed dignity and respect. At the same time, hospice recognizes and attends to the needs of family members providing care.“There’s an inaccurate perception that hospice means you’ve given up,” said Za-lar. “Those of us who have worked in the field have seen firsthand how hospice and palliative care can improve the quality of life and may even prolong the lives of some people who receive care.”Community Health Professionals of-fers a complete range of home health and hospice services throughout northwest and west central Ohio.
