Calling All Cars!
Community Parking Policy Reminders
• Vehicle washing or repair is prohibited in community parking areas. • Inoperable vehicles
are subject to towing at the owner’s expense. • Please park only in your assigned parking
space. • Visitors may park in designated spaces only. Thank you for your cooperation!
Remember Your Grandparents!
Many grandparents are forgotten. Did you know that 60 percent of nursing home
residents never have a visitor? The first Sunday after Labor Day is National Grandparents
Day. Celebrate by providing compassion and caring to Canada’s forgotten, frail
elderly...whether homebound or in convalescent-type care.
Preparing Kids for Their First Day of School
A young child‘s first few days of school can set the tone for a successful year and a lifetime
of education. The secret is talking to your child about what to expect so the first day doesn‘t
come as a shock. Here are a few tips:• Calm your children‘s fears. Encourage them to talk
about their feelings. Let them know that feeling nervous about the first day of school is
completely normal. • Focus on the positives. Talk about what they‘ll learn, the new friends
they‘ll make, and how their teachers will help them. Don‘t build up unrealistic expectations
about how great the school year will be, but be upbeat so they have something to look
forward to.• Visit the school before it opens. This helps young children feel comfortable when
the big day comes. If possible, try to arrange a meeting between your kids and their new
teachers so they can get familiar with each other.• Review safety rules. Go over safety
measures regarding traffic and strangers. If your neighbourhood has children who attend
the same school as your child, get them to travel together. On the first few days of school,
it might be a good idea to walk with your children to the bus stop or to school until they
feel comfortable on their own.

eginning as early as age 30, your muscle
mass begins to decline.
As years go by, you may begin to look soft
or flabby. These changes can start as early as
your 30s, but most people see more differences
in their 40s and 50s. Unless you do something
about it, you will lose about 1 percent of your
lean muscle mass per year after age 40.
It doesn’t have to happen. Only 30 percent
of muscle loss is due to aging. The other 70 percent is up to you to maintain. Even if loss has
begun, this percentage can be regained
through strength training.

At the start, take it slow. The goal is to
gradually and consistently improve over

of gentle exercise to warm up your muscles.
You can do strength training at home or
in the gym. Consider using:
• Your body weight to do exercises such
as push-ups, sit-ups, leg squats, or side and
back strengthening exercises.
• Resistance tubing, which can be found
at sporting goods stores and department
• Free weights, such as barbells or dumbbells. Start with light weights.
• Weight machines.
The Mayo Clinic studies show these to be
some of the benefits:
Stronger bones. Strength training increases
bone density and reduces your risk of osteoporosis.
Weight control and fat reduction. Muscle

body fat and control your weight.

especially at work. How you dress
makes a big impression on your boss, your
colleagues, and customers. Wherever you
work, here are some basic tips on dressing
for success:
• Look around your workplace. This is
especially useful when interviewing, but it’s
good advice throughout your career. Take
note of how your co-workers dress, as
well as what upper management wears.
Be ready for any

You never know when
you’ll need first aid.
Accidents happen, and
though you can’t predict
them, you can be ready.
Here’s what you should
keep in a well-stocked first
aid kit:
• Adhesive bandages
(at least 25, different
sizes and shapes)
• Antibiotic ointment
• Antiseptic wipes
• Aspirin, acetaminophen,
• Sterile gauze pads
(different sizes)
• Non-latex gloves
• Scissors
• Oral thermometer
• Burn ointment
• Eyewash solution
• Tweezers
• Safety pins
• Ice pack/heating pack
• First-aid instruction
Dress for the job you want, and emulate the
wardrobe of people you want to impress.
• Don’t get too “casual.” Even if your
workplace doesn’t expect full-fledged
business attire, be careful to dress neatly
and professionally. Khakis are generally
better than jeans, but if you do wear jeans,
be sure they don’t have any rips or holes. A
nice sweater or sport shirt is preferable to a

shoes polished and in good condition. Their
appearance is subtle but they can
contribute to your overall image.
• Keep a change of clothes handy. You

stash it in your desk, but hanging a sport
jacket in the closet or behind your door
means you can instantly improve your
appearance if you need to look a little more

Scene from Enough Said
ENOUGH SAID A divorced and single parent, Eva
(Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying
work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s
impending departure for college. She meets Albert
(James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and likeminded man also facing an empty nest. As their
romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends
Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage
client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems
“almost perfect” except for one prominent quality:
she rags on her ex-husband way too much.
Inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being
recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V to
join The Live Corp Company, where the best and
brightest inventors in the world create
technologies for the betterment of mankind.
AUSTENLAND Socially awkward Jane Hayes (Keri
Russell) is obsessed with the works of Jane Austen
and fantasizes about the character of Mr. Darcy.
She scrapes together as much money as she can
and takes off for Austenland, a British theme resort
where guests immerse themselves in a romantic
fantasy worthy of Austen herself. However,
because Jane’s limited funds do not allow as many
privileges as other guests, her chance at a fling with
her very own Mr. Darcy may be limited as well.
AS I LAY DYING The Bundren family of the rural
South tries to honor their late mother Addie’s wish
to be buried in her birthplace. They spend nine
days hauling her coffin in a mule-drawn wagon,
battling numerous obstacles and personal demons
along the way. James Franco directs and stars.
PRISONERS How far would you go to protect your
child? Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) is facing every
parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old
daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her
young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours,
panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that
had earlier been parked on their street. Heading
the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal)
arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a
lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release.
Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic
Dover decides to take matters into his own hands.
He’ll do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in
doing so, he may lose himself, begging the
question: When do you cross the line between
seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?

searching for the perfect guy. Djimon Hounsou,
Derek Luke, and Taye Diggs star.
