BY PA'I-rl CARPENTER The 2015 Lovell Health Fair will have a slightly dif- ferent structure this year, announced coordinator Nick Lewis. The biggest change is that patients will have five opportunities to pick up their test results at individ- ual "mini" health fairs held at the New Horizons Care Center. In the past, one big health fair has been held at the Lovell Community Cen- ter. The mini health fairs will be held from Sept. 21 - 25 from 7 to 10 a.m., in the multipurpose room at the Care Center. "The schedule spreads things out, so if someone can't make it one day, they have other opportunities to attend," explained Lew- is. "So actually we will dou- ble the amount of time from one eight hour event to five, three-hour events." Individuals who take advantage of the reduced price blood draw program can pick up the results of their preventative tests at the mini health fairs. Med- ness screenings ical staff from North Big Horn Hospital will be avail- able on those dates to dis- cuss lab results and answer questions patients may have. Another new feature added to this year's health fair is the opportunity for Cowley residents to have their blood drawn in the mo- bile unit, during a sched- uled visit to Cowley on Sat- urday, Aug. 29. "We're trying several different things this year; one thing we're planning to do is to utilize the mobile medical unit more," said Lewis. "We will be in Cowley for an outreach blood draw on Saturday the 29th, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. in front of the town hall building. If we can increase the number of people who take advantage of the health fair this year through the mobile unit, we will bring the unit to other communities next year." Last year 60 residents of Cowley participated in the health fair. Lewis hopes to double that number by making it more convenient for residents to get their blood drawn through the mobile unit. The reduced price blood draws will take place simul- taneously in Lovell in the multipurpose room at the New Horizons Care Cen- ter, starting on Aug. 29. They will continue in Lovell again on Monday, Aug. 31, through Saturday, Sept. 5. The hours of the blood draws will be from 7 to 10 a.m. Fasting for 12 hours pri- or to the blood draw is high- ly recommended for the most accurate test results. Patients should continue to drink water and are actu- ally encouraged to drink a lot of water during the fast. Patients should take their medications as usual. "One of the reasons peo- ple may want to do the well- ness screening is because they can discover health is- sues they may not be aware of," said Lewis. "It real- ly does help people. Some- times people believe they are healthy, but have hid- den problems. Taking the tests every year helps them to be sure that they really are healthy. A lot of times the sooner you get on a health issue, the better the outcome." The cost of the blood work is greatly reduced and is sometimes even cov- ered by health insurance. The cost of attending the follow-up mini health fair events is free and open to the general public. As al- ways, the events are expect- ed to be ripe with useful information. Lewis said he hopes to have a special health fair geared toward children next year that will provide infor- mation on water safety, bike safety, car seat informa- tion, home safety and other topics. "We think this new schedule will be more con- venient for people, because they can stop in before work or after their shift," said Lewis. "It just gives peo- ple more opportunities to participate." The Lovell Area Cham- ber of Commerce general membership meeting will take place at the Bran- din' Iron restaurant on Monday, Aug. 17, at noon. As always, these meet- ings are open to the public and interested communi- ty members are invited to attend. The speaker for the meeting will be David Bar- ton from North Big Horn Hospital to share his vi- sion for a community gar- den in Lovell 2016. This month's "Com- mercial" will be our new- est Chamber member, Troy Butler of Morrison Accounting, who will give a summary of his firm's services and history. Presidential candidate's father amon Tea Party picnic BY NATHAN aSTER The father of a Repub- lican presidential candi- date and a 27-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency with inside knowl- edge of what really hap- pened in Benghazi have been booked as two of the guest speakers for this year's Big Horn Basin Tea Party picnic in Emblem. The picnic is planned for Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Fallowfield Ranch owned by Rob DiLorenzo. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. Admission is free. Food and drink will be available for purchase. DiLorenzo, one of the leaders of the Tea Par- ty movement in the Big Horn Basin, said he's ex- cited about the lineup of guest speakers that have been booked. Last year, rocker Ted Nugent made an appearance, along with Gem Paul E. Vallely, a Fox News contributor. This year picnic at- tendees will hear from the following speakers: Pastor Rafael Cruz, the father of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who is a Republican candidate for president. Born and raised in Cuba, Rafael Cruz fought against the Commu- nists in Cuba, was arrested there and tortured, accord- ing to profiles of him that have appeared online and in print. He fled the island in 1957 at age 18. He even- tually settled in Texas and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2005. Today Rafael Cruz is a pastor at a church in Dal- las and servesas the Direc- tor of Purifying Fire Min- istries ministering in the U.S., Mexico, and Central America. He is also a pro- fessor of Bible and The- ology and the president of Kingdom Translation Services. Wayne Simmons, a former CIA officer. Recruit- ed in 1973 while in the U.S. Navy, Simmons spent 27 years in the intelligence business with the CIA.
