Why is Learning CPR so Important?

Keeping You Safe  Chris Bowden Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, commonly called CPR, is one of the main elements to survival in cardiac arrest. To clear up a common misconception before going any further, the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest is very simple. A heart attack occurs when a blocked artery prevents oxygenated blood from reaching one or multiple sections of the heart. If the blocked artery is not medically evaluated and treated rather quickly, the part of the heart that is normally nourished by the affected artery begins to slowly die. The longer a person goes without treatment ... Read More »

Blessing the Fleet, Murder Mystery and More

DonnaFiala_FeatureNEW

COASTAL COMMENTS Donna Fiala Something I question is what is happening to our United States of America? We always stood proud and held our flag and pledge to the highest degree. How can anyone earning $14 million and getting perks we common people will never have, not even stand for the National Anthem? And…now he’s the person some young people want to emulate? With no prayer in our schools, no signs of respect for each other, how can we go on? Will we become like those other countries who kill each other, burn flags, etc.? And the ACLU encourages that! ...

Better Things to Come?

b8-cbn-09-16-16-2

ALL THAT GLITTERS Richard Alan I’ll start off by avoiding being branded with which political party I favor or which I do not. Any business minded person with half a brain on an island where irony came to die knows to avoid that potential minefield. Let’s just say I for one will be relieved when the whole election circus is over and done with, and the chips will fall where they may. It seems to be the only topic these past months (or has it been years?). I have endured many colored comments and heated words of political wisdom, but only ... Read More »

Living & Learning

ALL THAT GLITTERS Richard Alan Strong words, “I can do most anything,” not exactly like Nike’s catch phrase, which is “Just do it!” Problem with “Just do it,” is that you do it and fail or fall on your face, that can be a problem. Failure can cause you embarrassment, or worse, your money. But it is said: It’s better to try and fail than never try at all. (Or was that about the subject of love?) In my case, as a young learning goldsmith, I was instructed to “just do it,” the problem could be a tough repair or a ... Read More »

The Primary Care Physician and YOU

Submitted Photo

To Your Health Scott Lowe  It’s often been said that there is no “I” in team. That may be true, but when it comes to those who make up your health care team, the INDIVIDUAL reigns. The people who cater to your health care needs must do so with a teamwork mentality—yet maintain a solitary focus on Number One: Y-O-U. Many individuals falsely believe they only need a doctor when they are sick; however, having a primary care physician may be the very reason you remain healthy. Not only does he or she provide you with necessary preventative care—in staying ... Read More »

By Monte Lazarus In memory of Monte Lazarus and his contributions to Coastal Breeze News, we are publishing many of his humor columns again in coming editions. They will bring as many smiles now as they did when first printed. Enjoy!  There’s an old adage that, as people live and age together, they begin to look and act alike; there’s a newer one that people and their dogs begin to act and look alike. I believe that people and their cars begin to look alike. As time goes by it’s easy to recognize which person belongs to which car…yes, I ... Read More »
