Those who have debilitating cataracts and are experiencing financial hardship can qualify for the Quigley Cares program, a program that pays for the entire cataract surgery.

Quigley Eye Specialists Founder and Cataract Surgeon Dr. Thomas Quigley said when he was in high school his sister Cathy, who was in her mid-20s, developed a rare eye disease called uveitus, an autoimmune disease that attacks the tissues of the eye.

“We could never find out why she got this disease” he said, adding that they had traveled the country and his sister had 16 different eye surgeries. “Still, she went blind.”

One of Cathy’s eyes had to be removed and the other was deemed blind. She now has a guide dog.

“When she had these 16 surgeries, no one gave her a financial break.” Quigley said what eventually led to his sister filing for bankruptcy.

Because of that experience, he was determined to change other people’s lives, which started the Quigley Cares Program.

?People are important to me. We all think about our lives at some point and say if we made a difference in this world. I want to make a difference, that’s important to me. We will always help people “, he said.

In 1988, Quigley started his practice and saw that there were a number of people who didn’t have insurance, so when Quigley Eye Specialist began opening, he started waiving the surgeon’s fee. Unfortunately, there was still a setup fee that he couldn’t do without if the operation was performed in a hospital, for example.

In 1994 Quigley thought that “That’s silly, these patients still can’t afford it” Surgery. The St. John’s Surgery Center was built on Conference Drive in Fort Myers, so Quigley could do without the operation entirely. The year-round program performed more than 3,000 free surgeries.

“It is important for people to know, free means free” said Quigley. ?These are people who don’t have insurance. We don’t charge them anything. “

Although it cost him tens of thousands of dollars to offer Quigley Cares, he said it was about giving back and serving the community.

“We want to contribute to the community to make it a better place” said Quigley. “It was a great program.”

Quigley Eye Specialist has partnered with the Fort Myers Lions Club to help people in need of cataract surgery during Cataract Awareness Month in June. Quigley Cares is offered to U.S. residents of Lee County who are in financial distress, not eligible for Medicare, and have debilitating cataracts.

Frances Wilhelm, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, said individuals must contact the Fort Myers Lions Club by June 30 at (239) 205-2166 or email chuck517@comcast.net or have funds to pay for the operation.

?You must be in the county where we operate, be it Charlotte, Collier, or Lee County. We have offices across the state, in Miami and Sarasota. “ said Wilhelm.

If the person qualifies for the program, Wilhelm said they’ll be referred to Quigley’s ophthalmologist for surgery and one of the surgeons will examine them to help plan the cataract surgery.

?I’ve worked with several surgeons. There has never been such an extraordinary surgeon and person. Dr. Quigley has the greatest heart and service to the community. “ She said.

Quigley said the surgery itself was pretty short, only taking seven to eight minutes. The patient is sedated so that he does not feel any discomfort. There are two different types of lasers that are used during surgery – one to assist the surgeon and the other to remove the cataract with ultrasound.

When someone has cataracts, their vision becomes cloudy, blurry, or cloudy. Quigley said that since the lens in her eye is cloudy, it must be removed.

?You can’t see anything without a lens. We have to put in a lens again. We insert an implant and it requires a prescription so that we can see well without glasses. “ he said.

Although the patient feels drowsy on the day of the surgery due to the sedation, they can resume normal activities the next day.

?It’s a quick recovery. The eye is completely healed within a week. “ said Quigley. “Implants are a big step forward.”

Quigley Eye Specialists is located at Lehigh Acres, 5220 Lee Blvd .; two offices in Cape Coral – 112 Del Prado North and 513 Cape Coral Pkwy. W., and a location in Fort Myers Beach, 11170 Summerlin Square Dr.

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – Lehigh head coach Tom Gilmore has announced the addition of 11 student-athletes who will join the Mountain Hawks program next fall when the early signing period begins on Wednesday. It was certainly another year for Gilmore and the Mountain Hawks’ coaching team, finding creative ways to recruit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are very excited about this group,” said Gilmore. ?There were many challenges with recruiting this year, but our challenges were no different from anyone else’s. We just had to master them and do our best.

“We ended up putting together a very good class,” continued Gilmore. “They’re good football players, good students and better people. We feel like we’ve put together a well-rounded class.

The initial results include these first 11 members of Lehigh’s football class by 2025. The group includes six offensive players and five defensive players. The most strongly represented position group is the secondary, to which Lehigh welcomed three signatories. Lehigh also signed two offensive linemen and one in each of the following positions: quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end defensive end, and linebacker.

Geographically, the Mountain Hawks have signed players from six states as well as tight end Scott Fulton from Ottawa, Canada, who was preparing at the Salisbury School in Connecticut. Three signatories are from Pennsylvania, including local product Matt Rauscher, quarterback for Allentown Central Catholic. Lehigh continued his recruiting success in North Carolina and Georgia and also signed athletes from Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.

The full list of early signatories follows:

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – After the season was abandoned almost a year ago, the Lehigh men’s tennis team will return to the pitches for the season opener on Sunday. The Mountain Hawks will leave for Baltimore and face Loyola, Md. The planned start of the Mountain Hawks last weekend against Lafayette has been canceled.

Lehigh comes from a season they ended up 5-5. The Mountain Hawks started the first year with dominant wins against Saint Francis, Siena and Duquesne, before losing wire-to-wire matches against Drexel and Villanova. Just before the season was canceled due to COVID-19, Lehigh traveled to Orlando and took solid wins against Bentley and Carnegie Melon.

This year’s team returns with a wealth of talent from a season as Lehigh returns four of his top five players with Zack Elliott, Harry Wang, Gary Fishkin and Jacob Edelchik. The Mountain Hawks will also look for jumps by college students Matt Kleiman and Jeremy Learner. Elliott, Wang and Fishkin all got a 6-3 mark in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the singles. Jacob Edelchik and Jeremy Learner took five singles wins a season ago, while Matt Kleiman took four.

The four best Lehigh players also form a strong duo in doubles. The pairs Elliott / Wang and Edelchik / Fishkin achieved six wins each in the first two places in doubles. Learner and Steven Nazaroff finished 3rd with 3-1.

Coach Wouter Hendrix brought two newcomers to this year’s team: David Missry and Jordan Paul. Missry is coming to Bethlehem from Taylor Allerdice High School, Pittsburgh, while Paul is coming from Marlboro High School, New Jersey.

The Greyhounds have yet to compete this season but will face Chestnut Hill in their first game of the season on Saturday before hosting the Mountain Hawks.

Look back on Sunday night to see how the Brown and Whites first game of the season went.

With the school year 2021 in retrospect and freedom within reach, that’s what experts call it “100 Deadliest Days” for young drivers is now in session.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, an average of seven people per day are killed in teenage car accidents, according to the AAA. Nationwide; more than 30% of deaths involving teenage drivers occur within 100 days.

With COVID-19 vaccines approved for teenagers and pandemic restrictions disappearing, teenagers will be right to want to reunite.

“After the CDC lifted many pandemic restrictions, young adults are eager to reconnect with friends, which means young inexperienced drivers will be spending more time on the roads.” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a press release. “This increases the likelihood that they will be involved in an accident and for every kilometer driven, the likelihood of new teenage drivers (aged 16-17) being involved in a fatal accident is three times higher than that of adults.”

According to the AAA, traffic accidents are the No. 1 killer of U.S. teenagers aged 16-19. Experts say six teenagers are killed every day “In accidents that can be completely avoided.”

In Florida, an average of 36 teenage drivers are involved in fatal accidents within 100 days. According to the AAA, an average of 158 people are killed in teenage car accidents each year; 40 of those who during the “100 deadliest days.” Over the past 10 summers, 400 people lost their lives in teenage car accidents.

?Young people lack the experience, skills and maturity of an experienced driver, which contributes to the fact that the probability of a fatal outcome increases not only for the young driver, but also for every passenger and for others on the road. ? Jenkins continued. “That’s why we all have a personal interest in making sure youngsters are safe behind the wheel.”

At Cape Coral High School, members of the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) program do their best to pass the dangers or driving disabilities on to their classmates, especially during the prom and graduation seasons.

“Unfortunately, the students don’t have this fear, they consider themselves invincible.” said SADD sponsor of Cape Coral High School, Dianna Quay. “I hope our children (graduating on Saturday) make wise choices.”

Quay said Cape seniors had a chat about making the right decisions ahead of graduation night that Saturday and hope the message sticks.

“If we help a child think before they get into a car to drive, or even get into a car with someone under the influence of drugs, it’s worth it.” She said.

There are also concerns that the summer months are approaching and teenagers may want to be out and about more often.

“I think everyone was so pent up that it will be a release and I’m not sure everyone will make the smartest decisions.” Kai said. “Uber is available, there is no excuse for no alternative but to get in the car or get behind the wheel when alcohol or drugs have been involved.”

AAA officials said understanding the risks and knowing the facts will help prepare both parents and teens for what can happen on the street.

Safety tips for teenage drivers from AAA include:

? Driving with passengers: The accident risks of young drivers multiply when they have young passengers. Set limits and enforce them.

? Driving at night: Night driving is more dangerous due to limited visibility, fatigue and impaired drivers on the road. This is a risky time, especially for young people. Limit the amount of time your novice driver spends behind the wheel at night.

? Do not wear a seat belt: Wearing a seat belt greatly reduces the risk of injury or death in an accident. Make a rule: everyone buckles up for every trip.

? Over speeding: Speed ??is a major factor in accidents for adolescents and adults. Teens must adhere to the speed limit and parents should lead by example and apply strict rules.

? Distracted driving: Teenage passengers are the biggest distraction for teenage drivers, but cell phones come second. Many teenagers admit to interacting with their phone and infotainment systems in the car while they are behind the wheel, despite the obvious dangers. Make a family rule that covers these and other distractions that everyone adheres to.

? Sleepy driving: Teenagers have difficulty getting enough sleep and often struggle with drowsiness. Sleepy driving is just as dangerous as driving drunk, and teenagers are at the highest risk. Make sure everyone behind the wheel has had enough sleep.

? Restricted driving: Driving impaired by alcohol and other drugs puts everyone at risk. Implement strict zero-tolerance rules with your teen and be a good role model.

Parents talk to their ready-to-drive teenagers about the “Behaviour rules” can play an important role in how your child behaves at the wheel. AAA experts said teach by example and minimize “Risky behavior” while driving can lay the foundation for a safe driver.

AAA also recommends enrolling teenagers for driving courses. AAAs “How to drive online” is a 25-hour supplementary course that teaches the rules and essential elements of safe driving in an interactive and innovative way. This online program is designed to ensure that safe driving habits are developed and maintained for a lifetime.

Freshpet looking for "Fresh in Show" in honor of Shelter Dogs

SECAUCUS, New Jersey, June 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – During a week when the world is focused on perfect standards for dogs at the country’s largest dog show, Freshpet (FRPT) aims to spotlight those pets who don’t have a pedigree, but rather those who have emergency shelters get into our homes. Freshpet’s ?Fresh in Show? program encourages pet parents to share their fresh-faced shelter and rescue dogs and cats to highlight the love these pets have for their families. A grand prize winner will be featured on Freshpet’s social channels as part of the competition and will receive an annual supply of Freshpet food. The ten runners-up also receive a three-month supply of Freshpet food.

The new campaign is part of Freshpet’s long history of supporting animal shelters across the country, including the Fresh Start initiative.

The winners will be selected at random. Multiple answers are welcome, but not required to win. The competition runs from now until the end of June. Freshpet will notify the winners via direct message in July. No purchase is required to participate.

The program follows the recent activation of Freshpet in new Yorkto demonstrate the long-term shelf life of dry dog ??food and highlight the value of fresh dog food over dry dog ??food. The brand hires new York Artist Will Kurtz to create a larger than life bulldog sculpture entirely from dry food with the title A Sad Kibble Dog “.

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – The Men of Lehigh’s # 9 lacrosse team is ready for its second season as the Mountain Hawks host Colgate in the Patriot League semi-finals at 4pm on Friday at the Ulrich Sports Complex. With a perfect 8-0 league record, the Mountain Hawks will host the league semi-finals and the championship game for the first time since 2013. Army West Point and Loyola meet at 7 p.m. after Lehigh’s showdown with Colgate. Both games can be seen live nationwide on CBS Sports Network.

Lehigh has advanced to 10 consecutive Patriot League tournaments, the longest active streak in the league. The Mountain Hawks have advanced in five of the last eight championship games this season, winning titles in 2012 and 2013 before losing in the championship game in 2014, 2018 and 2019. Lehigh and Colgate competed in the 2013 and 2018 league tournaments – in semi-finals and quarter-finals – both Mountain Hawk victories.

The Raiders reached the semifinals on Tuesday with an 11-8 win at Boston University. Colgate was 7-4 back but scored six goals in a row in the second half. The Raiders are now 3-6, but all of their losses were competitive, including a 13-11 loss at No. 11 Army West Point in the regular season finals.

Lehigh goes into the postseason with 16: 8 in Villanova after his first defeat of the season. The Wildcats jumped 9-2 at halftime and didn’t want to look back. Two bright spots for the Mountain Hawks were graduate student Conor Gaffney and senior Teddy Leggett, who dwarfed 400 and 200 groundballs, respectively, in their careers. Junior Mike Sisselberger won 20 of 22 faceoffs with eight ground balls, becoming Patriot League Faceoff Specialist of the Week for the fifth time in a row and for the sixth time this season – a new league record. Sisselberger was named the league’s Faceoff Specialist of the Year on Tuesday – Lehigh’s second consecutive award winner (after Gaffney in 2019).

Head coach Kevin Cassese was also named Patriot League Coach of the Year for a second time (along with 2013, the last time the Mountain Hawks were # 1 overall). A total of seven Mountain Hawks All-Patriot League were named, with Junior Tommy Schelling, John Sidorski in the second year and Junior Anthony Tangredi were appointed to the first team.

Lehigh and Colgate met in the regular season, with the Mountain Hawks winning 15-10. After Lehigh took a 4-0 lead, the Raiders even pulled out with five, but Lehigh responded with 10 of the next 12 goals to take a 15-7 lead. The Mountain Hawks have won a total of six straight times and 10 of the last 11 against the Raiders.

Colgate participated in a number of competitive competitions this year. The Raiders were 2-6 in the regular season, but three of the losses were four goals or less, two goals to five, and one to six. Second-team All Patriot League winner Brian Minicus leads Colgate with assists (21) and points (36), while Mike Hawkins is right behind with 18 goals and 11 assists for 29 points. Thomas Colucci won 16 of 22 faceoffs on Tuesday, helping the Raiders to victory.

Colgate leads the all-time series 28-20, but the Mountain Hawks have won 10 of the last 11, starting with winning the 2012 Patriot League Championship in Colgate. The teams have played three times in the postseason since 2012 (also in 2013 in the semi-finals and in 2018 in the quarter-finals). Lehigh’s 15-10 win over the Raiders on March 28 was the Mountain Hawks’ sixth straight win. The last time the two teams played in Lehigh was more than three years ago in the aforementioned semi-finals. Colgate won the first ever meeting between the two schools in 1956. Lehigh’s first win came in 1960 with an 8-6 final.

If the Mountain Hawks win on Friday, they would advance to their third consecutive Patriot League Championship game, facing the winner from Loyola and Army West Point on Sunday at 12 noon

Border Patrol Arrests Over 100 in a Stash House

The evenings?s note-worthy report.

 In a joint law enforcement effort, Laredo Sector Border Patrol, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and Laredo Police Department (LPD) worked together to shut down an alleged stash house that contained a large group of individuals being guarded by smugglers in south Laredo.

The incident occurred during the morning of June 10 when over 100 undocumented individuals were found inside the alleged stash house.  The individuals were identified as nationals of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.

All the undocumented individuals were taken into custody for further investigation.  None of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE) and all were medically screened.

The smuggling and housing of large groups of individuals in stash houses has not been deterred by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Stash house incidents such as this pose a threat not only to the people exploited by human smuggling but also to the people and safety of our Nation.

Take a stand against these criminal organizations and other potentially dangerous acts by reporting suspicious activity in our neighborhoods
