songs that Stewart is looking
forward to playing, according
to long time bandmate and
writing collaborator, Dave
Nachmanoff.
“Because I have learned all
of Al’s songs, we had an
opportunity to revisit some of
the tunes that hadn’t been fea-
tured in more recent years,”
Nachmanoff said. “I think at
this point we can actually do
three or four full shows and
never play the same song
twice. And while Al usually
comes into the gig with a set
list in mind, often times we’ll
just throw it out and go with
the flow.”

Gospel Gumbo Gathering —

The WMF also features a
two-day Artisan Fair on Jan.

The Florence Regional Arts
Alliance (FRAA) will have a
wide array of artistic styles
and genres represented at the
fair. Artisans will have work
available for purchase from 1
to 7 p.m. on Friday and from
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
“When you support the
local artist community, you
are supporting and respecting
all of our creative freedom,”
said Florence artist Gigi
Lassan, who will be showing
some of her work at the fair.

Are There Signs Of The Last Days?
Does the Bible give events and signs of Jesus’ return? Are the
signs that are mentioned in Matthew 24 an indication of the
approaching end of this age and the second coming of Christ?
Does Matthew 24 really forecast the events leading up to the
second coming of Christ? What does the Bible really teach?

impressions the man made on
the many students he touched
over the years.
“In my time with the dis-

other than to relate the highest
praise and respect for Richard
Whitmore,”
Grzeskowiak

and integrity that valued edu-
cation and deeply cared about
the students and community of

Lane County Cultural
Coalition recently awarded a
$1,700 grant to the Siuslaw
Pioneer Museum to assist in
producing a Rhododendron
Festival Booklet.
The booklet is the idea of
several of the museum’s
research library volunteers
and will document the annual
festival’s history. Volunteers
have gathered photographs
and written copy, worked on
layout and are using the
museum’s pioneer publication
format.
The booklet, set to be avail-
able at this year’s Rhododen-
dron Festival, will enhance
the visibility of this long-run-
ning event and give people an
understanding of how and
why this tradition got started.
For more information, call
the museum’s research library
at 541-997-7884.

Emergency Room Visits
E
mergency room visits are on the rise in the United States, but
not all such visits are necessary. The National Center for Health
Statistics estimates that ER visits rose more than 28 percent
between 1995 and 2008 and are continuing to increase.
Many argue that a large portion of these visits can be avoided and
are caused by lack of access to other providers. One study by the
American Action Forum estimates that waste in the healthcare sys-
tem attributed to unnecessary ER visits totals $14 billion annually.
WORK SAFE AND SMART
Emergency rooms report 18 percent more traffic in May through
August than any other times during the year, according to Blue Cross
Blue Shield. More people are participating in outdoor activities
during this time period, leading to more injuries and medical emer-
gencies. Some of the most common issues related to working outside
are related to dealing with the summer heat. Overdoing it in hot,
humid conditions can quickly lead to heat stroke or dehydration, so
it is imperative to take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water
while you’re working outside. Doing so can help keep emergency
rooms a little less busy during their peak time of activity.
MORE EMERGENCY ROOM NUMBERS
The following statistics come from the 2010 Medical Care Survey
by National Hospital Ambulatory:
• Number of visits: 129.8 million.
• Number of injury-related visits: 37.9 million.
• Number of visits per 100 people: 42.8.
• Percent of visits with patient seen in fewer than 15 minutes: 25.1
percent.
• Percent of visits resulting in hospital admission: 13.3 percent.
• Percent of visits resulting in transfer to a different (psychiatric or
other) hospital: 2.1 percent.
LEARN FIRST AID
If you’re interested in being better equipped to deal with emergen-
cy situations involving those around you, then taking up an
American Red Cross training is a great option. The Red Cross offers
first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated exter-
nal defibrillator (AED) certification courses that could make a big dif-
ference in your ability to save someone’s life in a crisis. The training
could come in handy in many different environments, including the
workplace, school, home and wilderness. Visit www.redcross.org/
