News from Judy Nance RN:

The optimal dose of aspirin to reduce the risk of heart disease:

81 milligrams, the amount in a “baby” aspirin, or one quarter of an adult aspirin can reduce the risk of heart attacks concluded a new review in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That's the standard dose, but many people take larger doses---half or even a whole aspirin a day. As many as 40% of doctors recommend higher doses. Taking more than a quarter aspirin does not protect more, the review found, but does increase the risk or gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers.

Honeywell Volunteers of Arizona needs a coordinator. This volunteer position requires about 1 to 2 hours per month of work, all of which is done at home. The job consists of receiving by mail the volunteer-hour forms submitted by retirees, logging the hours in a record book, filling out a check request form, and mailing the form to our Honeywell Corporation contact. Honeywell then sends out a donation check to the organization for which the retiree has volunteered work hours. Retirees can earn $2 per hour up to $100 per year for their organization.

If you are interested in this position, please contact Clint Langford at 602-996-3216.

We ask that retirees refrain from submitting their volunteer hours until the coordinator position is filled.

It is that time of year to have your family members that are attending one of the three state universities, to think about applying for one of the Honeywell Retiree Club scholarships These scholarships are for one thousand dollars ($1,000) and are awarded to one student at each university in their sophomore, junior or senior year. Since the first year of the program in 1999 we have awarded twenty scholarships. The awards for 2007 went to:

ASU: Jeffery J., grandson of Connie S., retired from Allied Aerospace Phoenix

NAU: Rebecca T., granddaughter of Jesse L., retired from Allied Signal Aerospace

U of A: Travis R., grandson of Barbara R., retired from Honeywell Product Support

The following note was received from Rebecca on her award:

I was recently awarded your Honeywell Retiree Scholarship, and would like to extend immense gratitude and honor at being the recipient for this generous award. All though I had intended to student teach this fall, I will instead be graduating in another three to five semesters with Secondary Education degrees in music and Spanish and a double minor in bilingual/multi-cultural education and English language learning.

 Once graduated I hope to teach in California, where I can utilize my Armenian language skills. I have also recently become interested in pursuing a Masters of Teaching Spanish and/or Educational Leadership in order to become an administrator and “mover and shaker” within my districts and at the university level. Somewhere along the way, I hope to attend Claremont Theological Seminary for a degree in Interfaith Urban Family Ministry with the United Methodist Church .

Once again, I would like to thank you sooo much for supporting students at NAU!

We thank Rebecca for her note of thanks and wish her and all of the awardees success in their studies and in life. We also encourage you to look into this most worthwhile program Full details on the HRC Scholarship program will appear in the January issue of The BRIDGE.

We can help Honeywell retirees or surviving spouses with fix-it jobs around the house that you are not good at or are unable to do and prevent these jobs from becoming budget busters.

Call us at this new number: (602) 765-4466 and leave a clear message containing job information, your name and telephone number. We probably can help and will get back to you as quickly as practical. We furnish the labor at no cost to you; you furnish the cost of the parts.

Our apologies go out to those that tried to call the Fix-It-Guys number this past month or so.  The answering system malfunctioned.  Everything is up and running once again.

The Fix-It Guys are: Bob, Dick, Gene, Sam, Perry, Matt, Paul, Ed and Clint.

Please contact the phone number above if you would like to volunteer as a Fix-It Guy or Gal.

At the next tournament [inthe Spring], we will again use established handicaps [AGA] and apply Calloway to only those that do not have handicaps. This should equalize play and give us more ways to be fair in scoring. By the way we gave out 38 [$596] awards, which enabled us to have 36% participation in award monies.

We hope to have 100+ players next time, at ????????? [don't know where as ownership of both the Tatum and Arrowhead courses are changing] as we will again offer invitations to play to Sperrywell and Signalwell and any of the other ..well's out there.

Have a safe and enjoyable winter, and we will look forward to seeing you all at the spring tournament.

We hope everyone enjoyed the get together. If you have any questions or suggestions, please call Dale W. at 480- 922-1402
