02/26/2019 - Next in MTMC ‘A Plan 4 Me’ Series is ‘Focus on Heart Health’ Feb. 26 & Other Events on Heart
San Andreas, CA.... “Focus on Heart Health” is the timely topic for the latest in Mark Twain Medical Center’s “A Plan 4 Me” wellness workshop series. Those attending the Feb. 26 event will learn how to keep their heart healthy; how Mark Twain Medical Center supports local cardiac patients, and what types of minimally invasive surgical techniques are available. This event during American Heart Month will feature medical professionals from the Mark Twain Heart Center, along with General Surgeon Dr. Andrew McCoy, MD. Steve Shetzline, Executive Director of the Murphys Senior Center, who will give an overview of Stay Vertical Calaveras, a free exercise program for seniors sponsored by Mark Twain Health Care District.


Larry Philipp, Interim CEO at MTMC notes, “Heart health is a national focus every year during American Heart Month in February. We’ve planned this workshop to build public awareness on the local level. Every year during February we join forces with Soroptimist International of Calaveras County to provide Free Complete Cholesterol testing for local women. We are excited to see others also joining the effort to raise awareness about heart health in Calaveras County – like the ‘Love Your Heart’ wellness event planned on Feb. 16th at the Copperopolis Branch Library.” (See related story for details.)

“This outreach has had such an impact on the women in Calaveras County, noted Take Women to Heath (TWTH) chairperson and treasurer Billie Westernoff, “Soroptimist International of Calaveras County is very excited and humbled by the fact that our Sister Club in Pesaro Italy has asked us to mentor them so that they can replicate TWTH with a similar program, understanding the fact that women's health issues are worldwide.”

“Focus on Heart Health” begins at 11 a.m. in the MTMC Education Center, with a free lunch to follow. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Reserve now; contact Nicki Stevens, MTMC Manager of Marketing & Business Development, at 754-5919.

Ann Walton, RN, will discuss two topics -- “Be Heart Smart” and “We Are Here to Help” offering prevention tips and
insights into the many ways Heart Center experts can help guide you back to good health if an emergency or lingering condition calls for cardiac care.

Dr. McCoy will “Ease Surgery Fears” by sharing the latest updates on minimally invasive procedures
which improve outcomes and enhance recovery techniques that have improved outcomes for a quicker
recovery.

Shetzline will give an update on Stay Vertical Calaveras, the free exercise program for seniors which
began last fall and currently offers Tai Chi and Strength Building classes in Murphys, Arnold, Angels
Camp, Valley Springs and San Andreas.

“A Plan 4 Me” is an ongoing workshop series focusing on general health awareness and prevention
strategies. When attending their first session participants receive a free “A Plan 4 Me” binder in which to
organize reference materials distributed at each event.

Philipp adds, “We are excited to see such a positive response to these workshops. 50 people attended the
Jan. 11 session featuring Orthopaedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Roger Rogalski – a
positive reaction indicating the community is eager to learn more about the timely topics covered at these
events. By taking advantage of ‘A Plan 4 Me,’ you have access to information that can be key to
preventing and identifying health issues, as well as arming you with knowledge to better address
everyday situations.”

County Events Pump Up Awareness About Heart Health
Free Complete Cholesterol Tests for local women and a wellness challenge for Copperopolis residents
will help raise awareness about heart health during American Heart Month in February. In addition, Mark
Twain Medical Center will “Focus on Heart Health” at a Feb. 26 workshop which is the latest in the
ongoing “A Plan 4 Me” workshop series.

American Heart Month was first observed in February 1964, following a Congressional Resolution
signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on Dec. 30, 1963. It declared, “It is essential to the health and
well-being of our nation that our citizens be made aware of the medical, social, and economic aspects of
the problem of cardiovascular diseases, and the measures being taken to combat them.”
County Events Pump Up Awareness About Heart Health

Local Heart Month activities include --
Jan. 31 to Feb. 14 – Wellness Challenge sponsored by the Copperopolis Branch Library. Local
residents can pick up self-monitoring cards to log two weeks of exercise activity. The branch will hold
weekly check-ins and post results. Participants logging the most minutes of activity are eligible for
rewards at the “Love Your Heart” event on Feb. 16. For complete details, contact Shannon Jewel at 209-
785-0920.

Feb. 1-28 – Free Complete Cholesterol Tests for local women. MTMC joins forces with Soroptimist
International of Calaveras County every year on this project to raise awareness that heart disease is the
NO. 1 killer of women. Financial support from SICC and MTMC make it possible for local women to
have the test that could literally save their life. It measures good and bad cholesterol and triglycerides and
includes a risk evaluation for heart disease and stroke. Call 209-754-2968.

Feb. 16 – Copperopolis Branch Library “Love Your Heart” event, 10 a.m. to noon. Featuring

01/28/2019 - Arts-In-Corrections Art Show at Columbia College Through March 28, 2019
Jamestown, CA...Artworks by California inmates at Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) will be on display at Columbia College in Sonora through March 28, 2019. The show, “Artistic Realms,” features 100 acrylic paintings on display and for sale in the college’s Manzanita Building. The artworks were created by students in the William James Association’s Prison Arts Project class taught at SCC. The course is made possible by a contract through California Arts in Corrections, a partnership between the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Arts Council. Arts in Corrections programs are evidence-based courses that reduce recidivism through structured instruction of visual, performing and literary arts.


The free exhibit is available for public viewing from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Columbia College is located at 11600 Columbia College Drive.

Bids on artworks will be taken via silent auction through 4 p.m. on March 27. Proceeds from the sales of the artwork will go to two non-profit organizations — Columbia College Foundation Art Scholarship and Columbia College Student Food Bank.

Paintings include landscapes, birds, animals, underwater fish, planets and abstract works. Many of the wooden picture frames that adorn the paintings were made by the vocational carpentry program at SCC, supervised by instructor Randy Bland.

Stacy Hay, a retired correctional officer and local artist, leads the arts course. Hay said the classes are a valuable rehabilitative program.

“The process of creativity opens the mind and the human spirit. It teaches self-discipline and problem solving,” Hay said. “These arts programs are proven to decrease institutional tensions, and lower recidivism rates. Most of these students are getting out of prison and could be your neighbors. This art exhibition gives them a way to give back to our local community.”
02/02/2019 - Murphys School of Music Receives Calaveras Community Foundation Grant...Open House Feb 2nd
Murphys, CA...Murphys School of Music is happy and very grateful to have received a substantial grant from Calaveras Community Foundation. This funding allows the young non-profit to improve programs and services. It will include the purchase of marching band instruments and uniforms, recital and performance equipment, sound proofing, a student outreach program and some low-income student subsidies.


A new recital space and dance program is underway under the direction of Sarah Long. This will be a wonderful addition to MSM giving a larger area for group lessons, student recitals and a complete program of dance for people of all ages. The new program will also include theatre arts. The dance schedule will be available online at the beginning of February. Please give the school a call during office hours on Monday – Thursday from 10 am – 5 pm, or on Friday from 10 am – 4 pm for more information on the Winter Music Session and the Dance Program, or to make a donation or become a volunteer.

Gift Certificates are available for music and dance lessons. What a great idea for your aspiring loved one. Music is a joyful gift that keeps on giving over a lifetime. It’s proven that children who study music do better in school. It is a dedicated practice that increases focus and math skills. Yet, music is the first thing to be cut from the public school curriculum. MSM aims to keep music education alive and available in Calaveras County. Be sure to inquire about the MSM School Assembly Performance Program.

Dance provides a healthy practice for body, mind and spirit. It provides focus and joyful exercise to those who choose to allow themselves the pleasure of the process. It improves dexterity and strength, and offers a healthy pastime from young and old. MSM musicians will be coupled with dance students, allowing for unique performance opportunities.

Save the Date for the Murphys School of Music Open House on Saturday, February 2
from 10 am – 3 pm. Help us to celebrate our one-year anniversary and see what is on the agenda
for 2019. Enjoy refreshments, meet the teachers and hear some wonderful live music.

Catastrophic illness or injury is defined as an illness or injury that is expected to incapacitate an employee or a member of the employee’s family which incapacity requires the employee to take time off from work for an extended period of time to care for that family member, and taking extended time off work creates a financial hardship for the employee because he/she has exhausted all of his/her sick leave and other paid time off (Ed. Code 44043.5). The purpose of the Catastrophic Sick Leave Bank Program is to assist an employee who is suffering through a catastrophic illness through the use of paid leave days donated to the bank by CUSD employees.
The District is requesting Board approval for the use of catastrophic leave for Rhonda Merrill and may direct staff to seek donations of sick leave on her behalf.
