Sue Simon and Beth Jones from Third Eye Associates (Aired on April 7 and April 8th, 2018)

Eye for Financial Planning (Aired on April 7 and 8, 2018)

RadioRotary interviews Red Hook Rotarian Susan Simon and Beth Jones, both of Third Eye Associates, Ltd, a fee-only registered investment advisory firm that provides financial life planning, financial transition planning, and wealth management services, with offices in Red Hook, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Their model is based on an hour-long initial interview in which Third Eye Associates determines the life goals of the client, which can be followed with five to seven sessions leading to specific recommendations for financial and life planning. One of their specialties is transitional planning, which deals with helping clients through significant life changes such as divorce or the death or serious illness of a spouse. Often this includes putting the client into a “no decision zone,” recognizing which steps are time sensitive and which are not.

Dr. Bobbie Davey On Pain Management (Aired On February 24 and February 25, 2018)

Pain Management with Physical Therapy (Aired on February 24 & 25, 2018) RadioRotary interviews Dr. Bobbie Davey
of MOST (Millbrook Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy), which not only has facilities in Millbrook, NY, but also
in nearby Rhinebeck and Hopewell.

Dr. Davey deals mainly with pain management from accidents, operations, and chronic conditions such as arthritis.  Pain is nature’s way of telling you that something is not right with your body. Pain is now recognized as partly psychological and partly physical, so relief of stress is an important part of treatment. Although opioids and other medicines can relieve pain, they are at best a short-term solution to a pain event, while physical therapy is a non-addictive long-term approach to relief. Strength and flexibility training will relieve many pains in joints or the back or even headaches caused by tense muscles. Improvements in balance through physical therapy help avoid falls that can be a source of pain. Although home or gym exercise can help, the specialized work of trained physical therapists is more effective in diagnosis and treatment.

Rtn, Ellen Haggarty on Hearing Loss (Aired on January 6 and January 7th 2018)

Ellen Haggerty, Rotary’s Hearing Hero (Aired on January 6 and 7, 2018)

Pleasant Valley Rotarian Ellen Haggerty returns to the RadioRotary microphone to tell about her latest efforts to improve hearing and communication around the world. Ms. Haggerty, who lost her own hearing at age 4, but has compensated with hearing aids and excellent lip reading, is the chair of the Rotarians for Hearing Rotary Action Group (RAG). In past projects she has helped provide solar hearing aids for impoverished Brazilians, spread the use of hearing loopsthat improve sound for hearing aids at gatherings, and persuaded the Rotary Annual Convention to have captioning for its main talks. Her newest project in based on the idea that speech for those with hearing loss is impaired unless very young children hear others speak. Tests exist that can detect hearing loss in infants before they learn to speak. These tests are being introduced in Guatemala through a Rotary Foundation Global Grant sponsored by Pleasant Valley and Folsom, California, Rotary clubs in the United States partnered with two clubs in Guatemala. Listen to the program and learn about the project and about you can help.

Rhinebeck Rotary Club talks about Senior Assistance (Aired on December 23 and December 24th 2017)


Rhinebeck Rotarians Mike Frazier and Mike Mazzarella tell RadioRotary producer Kathy Kruger about the program Rhinebeck Rotary has instituted to help senior citizens age in place. Many older Americans prefer to stay in their existing homes instead of moving into assisted-living communities or nursing homes. Sometimes the physical infirmities of aging mean that homes need to be modified for safer living; in other instances, simple tasks such as mounting storm windows in the fall have become too difficult for an aging homeowner. In Rhinebeck, NY, the Rhinebeck Community Committee on Aging recognized this problem and committee members who were also Rotarians asked their club to help. Today Rhinebeck Rotarians who are skilled in carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work volunteer to solve these problems for senior citizens at no cost for materials or labor. Grab bars are installed in bathrooms and railings on stairs as needed. Plumbing and electrical problems are solved. Necessary tasks such as cleaning gutters are handled as well. Seniors in need only need to contact Mike Frazier at Rhinebeck Rotary to get the help scheduled.
