The Man Who Changed the Landscape of America The 26th President

Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. Thank you During his administration, 42 million acres were set aside as national forests, wildlife refuges, and areas of special interest, such as the Grand Canyon. After his presidency and following an African safari, Roosevelt took a grand tour of Europe, giving lectures at major universities and meeting with the monarchs of various countries. One such talk, “Citizenship in a Republic”was given at the Sorbonne in Paris on April 23rd, 1910. It contains one of Roosevelt’s best remembered quotes: February 17th is Presidents Day. As it happens, I LOVE presidential history, and I’m a big nerd when it comes to U.S. presidents. When I was in elementary school, we would line up outside the classroom to go to lunch or recess, and on the wall was a poster of all the presidents. As we stood in line, I would read the poster and the list of presidents. Eventually, I made a game out of it and tried to see how many I could remember. Soon, I was able to recite the order of the presidents from start to finish. Growing up, I wanted to be the president of the United States. When I graduated high school, my mom and stepdad gifted me with a trip to wherever I wanted to go in the U.S. Of course, I pickedWashington, D.C., much to the chagrin of my mom, who wanted somewhere warmer. Many of the books on my bookcase are about the presidents, and I have even named most of my pets after them or their wives — again to the chagrin of my parents. Recently, I was sworn in to the U.S. Supreme Court, and while I was in D.C., I went to the National Museum of American History. As you can see from the picture, I was finally able to live out my childhood dream. My favorite president is our nation’s 26th, Theodore Roosevelt. Prior to being president, he was a cattle rancher, deputy sheriff, historian, naturalist, explorer, author of 35 books, police commissioner, assistant secretary of the Navy, governor of New York, war hero, and lawyer. He spearheaded the creation of the U.S. Forest Service and established five national parks.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of

deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because

there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does

actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Roosevelt captured his life’s philosophy in just a few sentences. “The Man in the Arena” tells us that the man we should praise is the person who’s out there fighting the battles, even if those battles end in defeat. In our day, when cynicism and aloof detachment are considered hip and cool, his words remind us that glory and honor come to those “who spend themselves in a worthy cause.” Roosevelt believed that a person should not be judged by what he achieved, but by what he did. The process was what mattered. To Roosevelt, courage was the virtue that enabled people to try and struggle. We don’t practice this virtue anymore. Courage requires personal sacrifice. It demands that you take the risk of failing. It calls for skin in the game. It’s far simpler to sit on the sidelines — to criticize and sneer at those who have the audacity to take the leap across the chasm. But there’s no meaning or fulfilment in this. No statue has ever been erected in honor of a critic.

If you want to win, you must show up and be vulnerable. You must be the man in the arena.

Zantac Linked to Cancer What You Need to Know

Zantac, a popular prescription and over-the-counter medication used to treat heartburn, was recalled by its manufacturer, Sanofi, in October 2019. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) discovered trace amounts of an impurity in the medication that has been linked to the development of cancer. In response, Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin is now accepting Zantac cancer cases.

The drug, also known as ranitidine, was tested by the FDA last summer, and those tests discovered the presence of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). This substance is often created during the chlorination of water and is considered an“environmental contaminant.” Several versions of Zantac, as well as generic versions labeled ranitidine, have been recalled by manufacturers and distributors. Major drugstores, including CVS and Walgreens, pulled the drug from their store shelves after the FDA announcement.

Those who took Zantac or generic ranitidine for at least one year may be at higher risk for the following cancers:

• • • • •

Bladder Stomach Intestinal

• • •






If you or someone you know has taken Zantac or ranitidine and developed one of the above cancers, please contact us today. Please note that while Zantac can be prescribed, it has several over-the-counter varieties. Call Krista Duzan at (812) 231- 5128 today for a free consultation.

Time to Get Back Out There! Expert Advice to Beat the Stigma of Senior Dating

Getting back into dating can be hard when you’ve been out of the game for a few decades. In fact, some would-be romantics are so self-conscious about their age that they never even try! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’ve rounded up some expert advice on dating at any age. Don’t fear online dating. Online dating is a great way to meet people outside of your social circle, and there are many dating sites and apps specifically for singles over 50 who are ready to mingle.

exclusively with women over 50, recommends creating a list of 26 different places in your area, one for each letter of the alphabet, then going to those places. While you’re out, Copeland says, “You want to smile. Make eye contact. Ask a question. Give a compliment and put a question behind it.” Be present when meeting new people. Dating as a senior means coming to the table with a lot of baggage. Dating is when people get acquainted, so be careful about sharing that baggage right out of the gate. This doesn’t mean you should never talk about heavy topics, but

remember this advice from the popular dating site, eHarmony: “Early on, focus on enjoying each other’s company here and now.” It doesn’t matter if you’re 26 or 62, dating is always hard. You have to step outside your comfort zone and trudge through a series of terrible first dates. But in the end, it’s all worth it when you find that special someone with whom you can spend your golden years. Just remember, you’ll never meet that person if you don’t make the leap.

Julie Spira, a relationship expert with senior dating app OurTime, says that “Authentic dating profiles get the best results.” Basically, don’t lie on your profile. Use a picture of you from this year and be proud of your age. That’s the best way to find people who will love the real you.
