VA CLINIC PLANNED

On Tuesday, February 20, three executives from the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa will outline the services to be offered at the new VA Clinic in Riverview at a public meeting at the Trinity Baptist Church on Del Webb Blvd West from 2 to 4 PM.
    The new 50,000 square foot South Hillsborough VA Clinic will be about six miles from Sun City Center; a shuttle bus will be in service from Sun City Center to the new clinic.  Primary care services, women’s primary care, home-based primary care, mental health, audiology, radiology (MRI, CT, ultrasound, x-ray), specialty care, physical therapy and a pharmacy lab will be described.
     There will be information about in-home and nursing care for Veterans and spouses, and about existing federal and state Veteran benefits. Mental health services and spouse benefits will be outlined at this meeting. It is all sponsored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the South County Coalition on Mental Health and Aging.
     There will be an open question/answer period.

SCIENCE AND PUBLIC OPINION:

A gap has developed in the past few years with overwhelming scientific evidence being dismissed as a mere “belief”.  A substantial fraction of the general public has begun to disregard carefully constructed scientific studies on matters such as Darwinian evolution, climate change, and vaccine-induced autism.
     On Monday, February 12 Professor Phillip Leto of Discovery University will take a look at this at a free lecture in the Caper Room of the Atrium Building at 7:30 PM.  Any resident of CA or Kings Point interested in science and technology is invited to attend this lecture. There is no cost for admission to this monthly meeting of the Science, Engineering and Technology Club.

And, In Closing,

  • I checked my Vial of Life in the door of my fridge; it was out of date.  I know the Emergency Squad goes to that first thing if there is an ambulance call to my home so please tell your readers to make sure it is up-to-date.
  • While checking out of Walgreen's front checkout counter, I noticed over the cashier a bunch of glasses, sun glasses, keys, garage opener, key chains hanging on her clear plastic wall.  She explained they had been left by shoppers.  (Thanks, Holli!)
  • I am hoping you will attend my free illustrated show a week from now on Saturday, February 17 on the History of Sun City Center; Community Hall, 1910 South Pebble Beach, 2:00 PM. Why was this community started here 57 years ago, and all about the key development highlights over the years.  Light refreshments will be offered.
