home-remodelHome Remodeling Projects – A Huge Task with a Giant Payoff!

By Eileen Narozny
Today’s savvy homebuyers have been taking advantage of the
recent economic downtown and the housing market is finally gaining momentum. This surge in new home and resale purchases has created a niche for the remodeling market, especially the abandoned and neglected foreclosed homes. The bulk of these homes were left in a state of distress with a multitude of “big ticket” items in need of repair.



The “Other” Family Cancer GeneSwoboda

Many people have become aware of the BRCA I/II genes that can run in a family and predispose family members to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.  Angelina Jolie and others have helped to get the word out.  The BRCA I/II genes are only responsible for about 10% of breast cancer cases, usually those in younger women or male breast cancer.

Boy Scouts of America, Central Florida

Our youth today often find themselves at a crossroads, not sure which path to take.  As a community, it is critical that we encourage them down the Scouting Trail.  Scouting provides guidance in Character Education, Citizenship, Personal Fitness and Leadership Training.  As a community, we need to ensure Scouting’s success and growth because the Scouts of today are clearly the leaders of tomorrow.

In Osceola County, Scouting provides the values of Scouting to more than 2,000 youth & families! Scouting is alive and growing in your neighborhood and we need your support more than ever as we head into 2014.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s …. not Superman! The guy running next to you on the treadmill may not be a superhero, but he looks like one in his “Alter-Ego Compression Top” from Under Armour. If your goal is to “transform yourself,” as the retailer’s campaign slogan says, today’s wide range of fun and colorful active wear can help you do it. There’s nothing like a new outfit to rev up your workout.



dr-borgman-kissimmee-animal-clinicStopping the Itch

By Dr. Gary Borgman, Kissimmee Animal Hospital

Fleas are no longer the primary cause of itching and secondary infections for those dogs and cats who are flea free.  Still many dogs still itch.  Atopy is a defective skin barrier against environmental factors, including pollen, dust mites, plant juices, etc resulting in biochemical reactions leading to itching, inflammation, and secondary infections. Sometimes it is necessary to administer a corticosteroid for quick relief. Unfortunately, corticosteroids have undesirable side effects.  We now have a new product which is even more effective than injectable or oral
corticosteroids and it is safe with no side effects!
