Tami Randel, Community Relations DirectorFather’s Day is coming up fast, and there is no better way to honor and treat your special Dad than to take him to the Father’s Day Buffet at Country Meadows Village, located at 155 S. Evergreen Road in Woodburn.

On June 19, from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., Country Meadows Village ~ a prestigious independent and assisted retirement community for those 55 and up ~ will host a Father’s Day Brunch Buffet.

“We are known for our Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch, and this year we are going to have a Father’s Day Buffet that will rival even that,” said Tami Randel, community relations director at Country Meadows Village. Also on the menu ~ cold beer.

“Aside from the good food, we will be raffling off a variety of prizes and will also be having a table-to-table magician,” said Tami. “The magician will be visiting tables throughout our dining rooms, performing interactive magic tricks for our guests and residents. It will be a fun and memorable way to celebrate Father’s Day.”

All fathers over the age of 70 will be welcomed for free, with the price for everyone else at just $12. Early reservations are required, because the unique event is expected to fill up quickly. This will be an event people will talk about for years.

While the magician will be great, it won’t be magic that will make all the wonderful food disappear!

Richard Edmonds, Woodburn Automotive Repair Center’Tis the season for air conditioning service for your car. The most common symptom is that your AC system blows warm air only. Usually, that means it is out or low on Freon. If it blows cold sometimes ~ it is usually low on Freon. If it won’t turn on at all ~ usually it’s a blown fuse or the compressor itself.

The average AC system has one to two pounds of Freon, so if your AC is four ounces or more low, your AC compressor will not turn on ~ thus you get warm air only. After weighing the Freon, we pressurize your system for about 20 minutes to look for obvious leaks. Note: this test will not find the real small leaks that could take two hours, two days, or two months to leak down.

Once your AC system is full, your compressor will turn on and we can check your AC pressure. At this point, we turn on your AC, and if cold air comes out, everyone is happy. But here is the bad side: AC systems should never leak out, so if we didn’t find a noticeable leak in our 20-minute test, the problem is still there. So we’ll add dye to your Freon, and when it finally leaks down and it’s back to blowing warm air, we check the system with a special light and glasses to see where that slow leak is coming from. Then we can fully repair your AC problem.

Tom Staskiewicz, general manager at Woodburn Estates & GolfWhen I started with Woodburn Estates & Golf, I frequently heard people talk about our being a “501(c) (something)” organization. Upon hearing this, the first thing that came to mind was “we’re a political organization?” Of course, that’s not the case, but we are so used to hearing about political action committees, it was an easy jump to make.

The fact is, Woodburn Estates & Golf meets the IRS standards for “Social Clubs, 501(c)(7),” and as such is a non-profit organization for the benefit of its members. The IRS logic is that the activities provided can be purchased through fitness and health clubs, country club memberships, etc., all with after-tax dollars. So the conclusion reached by Congress was: Why can’t a community come together to create its own facility to provide these amenities?

By being a non-profit, we have the ability to spend more of the dues we receive from our members on making our facility bigger and better. Every year, we make significant investments to improve our facilities and grounds. These investments range from required maintenance to refurbishing or replacing structures and equipment.

You have probably heard of the renovated pool and spa, and this summer, new windows will be installed in the fitness center. Later this year, we are planning to double the size of our exercise room and add a rehabilitation center for pre- and post-operative exercise. Our goal is to continually be able to offer our members and associate members the amenities they need.

Koa Lyu, fitness director at Country Meadows VillageCountry Meadows Village, a prestigious retirement living facility, takes its approach to “Live Well, Be Well” to the next step with a new Wellness Program that focuses on providing residents and members of the community with the resources to enhance their well-being. The program is built on the principle of successful aging.

Research has found that 70 percent of physical aging is related to lifestyle choices that include a healthy diet, getting exercise, and keeping one’s mind active. Only 30 percent of physical aging is attributed to inherited genes. This program is designed not only to focus on general exercise and nutrition, but also to stimulate the mind and promote a healthy, stress-free lifestyle.

Country Meadows Village, located at 155 Evergreen Rd. in Woodburn, has built its Wellness Program on a combination of different activities that will challenge each individual’s strengths and weaknesses, while providing a fun and enjoyable experience. This program is geared towards the 50+ age group, and has everything from individual exercise to group fitness, as well as lectures and classes featuring mental and physical wellness.

To see a full schedule of what is included in the program, call or go to Country Meadows’ website: www.countrymeadowsvillage.com. You can also ask to be added to the monthly mailing list so you can take the right steps toward living and being well.

As Wellness Director Koa Lyu always says: “It doesn’t matter how slow you move, as long as you keep moving.”

Our craft room is a busy part of Woodburn Estates. Whether your passion is quilt-making, woodcarving, ukulele or Bible study; there’s always some group having fun and sharing activities.

In our West Building, we have the Country Cottage Restaurant, where Renee always has a great selection of wonderful foods at reasonable prices. This building includes the Blue Room, where card players gather to play pinochle, bridge, and other games or to simply relax and chat with friends.

Richard Edmonds, Woodburn Automotive Repair CenterOf all the maintenance requirements recommended on your vehicle by the manufacturer, the timing belt is probably the most important. Different manufacturers require the timing belts to be changed at different times ~ some as low as 60,000 miles and some as high as 120,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual to see exactly when yours should be changed.

Most newer vehicles have what’s known as “interference motor” or “non-interference motor.” With a non-interference motor, this means that if you are driving down the road and your timing belt breaks due to age and wear, the internal parts (valves and pistons) stop moving and your motor shuts off. But with an interference motor, the internal parts keep moving and bend and break ~ and more than likely ruin your motor.

The timing belt is not the one you see when you open your hood. It is hidden, and like the other belts on your vehicle, when they wear down they get brittle and crack. If your owner’s manual says to replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles, that does not mean 91,000 or more, it means replace it before your odometer reaches 90,000, and preferably about 5,000 miles before. When you have the timing belt changed, make sure you change all the component parts, i.e., water pump, tensioner, pulleys, and guides.

Timing belt services are one of the most expensive maintenance repairs, but they are still cheaper than a new or used motor.

Richard Edmonds, Woodburn Automotive Repair CenterWhen your “check engine” light on your dashboard is illuminated, it means the on-board computer is reading the electrical side of the vehicle ~ not the mechanical side. For example, if your fuel pump goes out, it won’t trigger a check engine light, but as the fuel pump is slowly dying the fuel pressure starts to drop ~ and when it drops enough it will trigger electrical relays and sensors that monitor your fuel/air.

This is why when parts stores read your check engine light, they are not supposed to recommend parts to replace, just tell you what the code is. The codes are always a starting point. There are more than 1,800 codes your computer can read, and out of them fewer than 300 tell exactly what the problem is.

So many people panic when the check engine light comes on and will pull over immediately and check the oil dip stick, the transmission dip stick, and the coolant level. But these are all mechanical, not electrical. So don’t panic, relax and continue driving your vehicle until you can get it to your auto repair shop and have them diagnose it.

When your check engine light comes on, just consider it like an alarm system in your house with all the sensors on the windows and doors. Perhaps someone left a window not closed all the way, but no one broke in, none of your stuff is missing, the alarm system is just continually monitoring all areas.

TODD BARTH

Research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., indicates that as the number of prescription medications a senior takes increases, so do that senior’s potential health risks.

Nearly 20 percent of seniors surveyed taking five or more prescription medications have reportedly experienced challenges in managing their medication regimen ~ including keeping track of which medications they have taken and when. Making a mistake when taking medications can have devastating effects. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reports that 100,000 older adults end up in the hospital each year because of an adverse drug event.

“We take medication administration very seriously. Our goal at Home Instead is to give the community and our clients resources and educational opportunities to remain safe in their homes,” said Todd Barth, owner of Hillsboro’s Home Instead franchise. “Sometimes seniors think they are being diligent in consistently taking their medication, but in reality they get sidetracked and forget. Depending on the medication, this could seriously cause a health challenge or death.”

To provide families with resources to help identify potential pitfalls regarding medications for seniors, the Home Instead Senior Care network has introduced “Let’s Talk about Rx.”

Tom Staskiewicz, general manager at Woodburn Estates & GolfI love taking prospective or new members for a tour of our facility. As these new members or prospects go through, they are always surprised at what we have to offer, and hearing from our active members simply reinforces the experience.

The other day, as I was taking a couple through, one of our members enjoying the hot tub started telling the couple about how things have improved. She pointed out her favorite feature of the completely renovated hot tub: different bench levels which can be adjusted for people of differing heights, but also for those wanting the jets to hit them at a particular spot.

Next, this couple heard from members in the pool. Their doctors had prescribed low impact exercise, and walking in the pool was just the answer.

Then they looked in on the new locker rooms, and were impressed with how clean, bright, and inviting they are.

When we went to the adjoining exercise room, they were surprised by the selection of equipment, and our goal is to have a second room that will allow us to dedicate the existing room to equipment suitable for rehabilitation after knee, hip, or other surgeries.

Woodburn Estates & Golf offers everything our members need to stay healthy. Our pool, Jacuzzi, and exercise room provide physical therapy to exercise at your own pace, in your own way, in your own time.

Next month: The tour continues with dining, auditorium, golf, and craft facilities.
