As of August 20,2014, residents of Villas at San Bernardino have been participating in a new on-site fitness program from Live 2 B Healthy® Senior Fitness of Minnetonka, MN.  The residents are able to attend a one-hour custom fitness class that supports The Villas at San Bernardino’s commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Classes are held every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday at 9:30am.

Each participant’s fitness is assessed every 4 months against a baseline test. Many studies have concluded that regular exercise allows senior citizens to improve balance and reduce falling; control weight and diabetes; lower risk of heart disease and stroke; improve sleeping and eating habits; improve cognitive skills and even reduce medication and agitation.

“I absolutely love the new fitness program! This program has improved how I feel. I have less cramping and stiffness in my legs. The deep breathing exercises have helped my bronchial problems immensely. The residents not participating don’t know what they are missing!” says Jim Krauser, Villas at San Bernardino Resident.

Live 2 B Healthy® Senior Fitness is an industry leader in senior fitness because of their age-specific exercises, nationally certified trainers, consistent on-site programs and class design that focuses on both results and enjoyable socialization.  As a SilverSneakers® Partner, we encourage outside area SilverSneakers® Members to participate in our classes.

The fitness program is offered at no charge to the residents of Villas at San Bernardino.

Congresswoman Gloria Negrete McLeod speaks with Dorothy Grant Elementary students as they contact the International Space Station using amateur radio.

MONTCLAIR, CA – This past week, Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod (D-Chino) visited Dorothy Grant Elementary School in the City of Fontana where seven students from Ms. Beverly Matheson’s 4th grade class made contact with astronauts aboard the International Space Station using amateur radio.

The Amateur Radio International Space Station Program (ARISS) is a joint venture by NASA and the Amateur Radio Satellite Corporation to facilitate communication between astronauts aboard International Space Station and schools around the world.  ARISS’s goal is to inspire interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.

“Promoting STEM education is very important because it opens many doors of opportunities for our students interested in pursuing these fields,” said Rep. Negrete McLeod.  “I applaud Ms. Matheson, Dorothy Grant Elementary School, and the Fontana Unified School District for facilitating this event because it helps motivate our next generation of scientists, engineers, and astronauts here in the Inland Empire.”

The event was a great success.  Dorothy Grant Elementary plans on contacting the International Space Station next year.


Ghostwriter Continues His Work in Assisting Black Authors Get Published

Ghostwriter Donald MacLarenTAMPA, FL- Donald MacLaren, Ghostwriter and Screenwriter, has helped more than 30 books get published and his screenplays are being introduced to producers. He is looking to help those who want to write a book about their experiences or ideas.

Mr. MacLaren has a Master’s Degree from a seminary, so he is comfortable talking about spiritual matters and beliefs. In talking about his clients’ backgrounds, Mr. MacLaren keeps an open mind: “I don’t judge people when I hear their stories. I let God do the judging. After all, we have all sinned in different ways, made mistakes, and made wrong choices. My goal is to provide an excellent book or screenplay so that others can learn something from what is shared.”

Mr. MacLaren has worked on many projects with many different people from all walks of life. Some of his book and movie clients have included a doctor, former state senator, retired corporate lawyer, postal worker, restaurant manager, psychologist, entrepreneur, insurance broker, retired banker, retired teacher, retired librarian, and New York City chemist. As he often says, “I’m glad I can come in and help get people’s stories told which they would never have been able to do on their own. I’m on a mission to help write all kinds of stories that can be of value to others.”Ghostwriter Donald MacLaren 3

The published books include all types of genres including memoirs, biographies, how-to stories; fiction, children’s books as well as inspirational self-help books. Mr. MacLaren, who prefers to be called Don, says, “I tell clients not to hold back, but just tell your stories or write about your ideas, and I can work to organize and structure what has to be done.”

Donald MacLaren has been able to help his clients in the following ways:

  • Works with a Ph.D. associate who reviews and rereads, adding insight and suggestions.
  • Helps with the design of the book covers.
  • Makes the books available as paperbacks and eBooks internationally on the Internet.
