As a urologist practicing in northwest Ohio, I am gravely concerned by the new recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing. These recommendations do a great disservice to men around the country, particularly those with a higher risk of the disease (i.e., African American men, those with a family history of the disease, those who are underinsured and those who live in rural areas with limited healthcare access).
On Friday afternoon, June 15th of this year the Bluffton Lions Club put on its annual car show the 45th Festival of Wheels and Cruise-in. We strive to make it a better show each year. It takes a lot of volunteers to make it a success. The weather has a lot to do with it, but the volunteers are the main factor. The Bluffton Lions are very grateful to all the following people who helped with our car show. Some are not members of the Bluffton Lions, but help because they are also interested in cars and to support the community. We thank you all and are very grateful for your participation.
It has been wonderful this past week to learn that the Motorcoach Safety bill was passed by Congress and will take full effect in the next four years. This means that all of us will be able to take our trips in much safer buses.
The S.H.A.N.N.O.N. Service Club of Bluffton, in conjunction with the Village of Bluffton, the Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Bluffton American Legion, says THANK YOU to the many businesses and individuals who helped to sponsor the MAIN STREET FLAG PROJECT. The cooperation among so many people who helped this project in so many ways is truly inspiring. And the stories behind the people who are HONORED and MEMORIALIZED are heartwarming.
