Dear Joe,

Happy New Year! I FINALLY got around to putting my thoughts on paper about the wonderful experience
I’m having with my new hearing aids. I hope that people who read my glowing testimony will want to give
you a call to see how you can help them get the maximum improvement in their ability to hear the way you

did for me.

Dear Friends,

“I’m in love” were the first words I said to Joe Mutter
when he asked me how I liked my new hearing aids. What
an improvement! The poor quality of sound I received
from previous hearing aids resulted in my avoidance of
going to the theater, the movies, and social events. Ev-
erything changed when I made an appointment to meet
with Joe Mutter. I have to admit I was very skeptical
-- little did I know that, despite my significant hearing
loss, I was about to have better hearing (with amazing
clarity) than I thought possible.

What impressed me about Joe was his JoaendMyuotut!er
extensive knowledge in his field, his state-of-the-art
equipment, and his patience in taking the time to explain

to me everything I needed to know about my new hearing aids.

Joe’s genuine concern for me as a patient and his desire to help me

achieve the very best hearing possible were evident from our first meeting.

I highly recommend Mutter’s Precision Hearing to anyone struggling with

hearing loss. It could very well be the first step toward a major FSJAIVTONMOOVEDAPTISHNOEIIAYNDUTSTY#AFB1OEWNEARDFHEROYNSR

improvement in your quality-of-life.”

Sincerely,
A. Myavec, St. Lucie West

And so it came to pass that a great sadness fell
upon the land. For the Great Lords who sat in
Washington had caused a snafu to be laid upon
the people, to cause them much hardship, pain
and suffering. roughout the Land, there was
much wailing and gnashing of teeth. For all
believed that all was lost, even unto their Rolls
and Mercedes.
“Times are Bad” cried the media “ye all
are going down the tubes” And Lo the people so
hearing did so believe. So they donned sackcloth
and ashes and spoke with lowered voices and much wringing of hands.

But there was amongst them one named Terry, e Idiot of Diamonds By Terry,

who was weak of mind, hard of hearing and dim of sight so that she was not able to see, hear
nor understand how bad the times were, so stupid was she.

So Terry made herself a shield and emblazoned on it “Business is Good” and bound
it to her mantle. that all might look upon it. And as she traveled throughout the land, the
people raised their heads and they mocked at her saying “Why do ye wear that sign upon

your breast “Business is good?” But Terry of Diamonds By Terry replied, saying “ I wear

this sign because Business Is Good!!”
“Wherefore is your business good, but we are in such distress??” ou knowest my

eyes fail me, there fore I cannot read the newspapers that proclaim misery in the land. ou
knowest I hear dimly, therefore cannot hear the mighty warnings of
McNeil and Lehrer. ou also knowest I am slow of mind and therefore
do not comprehend what the wise men say in Washington, New York
and Chicago. So my heart is not burdened and my work is joyful.”

Hearing this, the crowd raised their voices and cried aloud Terry!!
Terry!! Make one of your magic Buttons for us so we might be shed of
our despair too. And Terry spake humbly saying “Its not magic boys,

people will do just about anything to avoid
any kind of surgery. Just saying the word
“surgery,” says Domkowski with a smile,
“makes them want to run to the door.”

Fortunately, there are several new
non-invasive weight-loss options available,
including some relatively new FDA-ap-
proved drugs.

“Prior to a couple of years ago,” Dom-
kowski explains, “there hadn’t been a new
FDA-approved weight-loss medication in
over a decade. Now there are several new
ones. One is Osymia, another is Belviq and
a third is Contrave.”

That decade-long dearth of new anti-obe-
sity drugs can be blamed in part on the in-
famous “Fen-Phen” or Fenfluramine-Phen-
termine weight-loss drug. Introduced in the
1970s, it was later pulled from the market
amid much negative publicity when it was
shown to cause serious heart-valve and pul-
monary hypertension problems.

This new generation of medication, ac-
cording to Domkowski, has been proven in
clinical trials to be much safer.

“They’re actually medications that have
been used to treat migraines and depres-
sion,” Domkowski explains, “but when used

Fine Art and Craft Show
takes place this weekend in the
charming downtown of the one-
time fishing village. The show re-
quires that the works on display
are all made by the artists tending
the booths, so that visitors can
count on a little background to
the art they’re interested in buy-
ing. Of the 125 artists accepted
to the juried show, 21 are local.
The rest come from as far away
as Maine, Michigan and Wiscon-
sin. With the show now starting
its second decade, the word has
clearly gotten out: Jensen in Jan-
uary is not a bad gig.
The free fair runs from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Festival is taking place Sat-
urday in Fort Pierce along Second
