Q: Do these children pose a health risk?

When children come into the Department of Health and Human Services program, they are given a well-child exam and given all needed childhood vaccinations to protect against communicable diseases. They are also screened for tuberculosis, and receive a mental health exam. If children are determined to have any communicable disease or have been exposed to a communicable disease, they are placed in a program or facility that has the capacity to quarantine. If they have mental health problems, they are similarly placed in a specialized facility to meet their needs and not in a temporary shelter.

Tonight’s guest is Cindy Lane Ross

Websites:   www.bodiesbycindy.com,   www.fitpluswear.comwww.fattofitwithcindylaneross.com

Book:  Body Type Blueprint

Cindy motivates audiences from all age levels and genders by taking the discipline and determination she learned playing tennis at the Worlds’ most prestigious tennis academy and then on to turning pro, facing illness at an early age, gaining over 100 lbs, coping with death, and then regaining control of her life, all of this by self-MOTIVATION!

Questions (and answers!) for Radio Interview:

  • How did you get started into fitness?

My love of fitness came through years of playing tennis, moving to a tennis academy at a very young age, turning pro at 17 and then finished out my career in college.  I started having signs of what they thought was carpal tunnel syndrome and then 3 years later I was diagnosed as having Rheumatoid Arthritis.   After 22 surgeries over a 12 year span and a 110 pound weight gain in 2006, losing my mom to Scleroderma and my brother to Type 1 Diabetes,  I decided I wanted to help people change their life!

  • You are the owner of Bodies By Cindy, what is your clientele and what all programs do you offer?

My niche is training people with ailments- we have people with arthritis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, paraplegics, amputees.  My passion is to help people get a good quality of life back.

  • How do you manage your Rheumatoid Arthritis?

I manage my arthritis with the right medication Humira (adalimumab), a clean eating diet, and exercise.  I’m in remission on medication if that makes sense.

  • What made you want to design a clothing line?

My quality of life wasn’t so good for many years because my joints hurt.  So I felt there was a need for compression clothing, warms the joints and gives stability.  My partner and I also created a sweat proof water proof pocket for your smart phone made inside of workout wear.

www.fitpluswear.com

  • Tell me about the two TV shows that you do weekly?

I have been on air for 3 years now.   I do a In The Kitchen with Bodies By Cindy show and a Get Fit with Cindy Lane Ross.  Living in the south, education and health and nutrition is key.. we are one of the heaviest states in the country. I want to help make the change through educating people.

  • Tell me about your most recent website you launched, www.cindylaneross.com, what services will you be offering worldwide?

So excited we actually just went live! I travel around the world and people are always saying they wish they lived near me so I can train them.  I have developed a program called FAT TO FIT and it’s a one stop shop for all your fitness needs including a detailed meal plan, a personal workout plan, unlimited guidance and lots of motivation. My online training program is for all fitness levels and can be done in the convenience of your home, the gym, the office, and even on VACATION.

  • What is one piece of advice you would offer to our listeners that are looking to get healthier?

One of my favorite quotes is “Live a Purpose Driven Life” You have to figure out what motivates you and be the best possible version of yourself! Go out and live each day to the fullest!

  • You just recently opened a new fitness facility- Bodies By Cindy Health & Fitness Center

Our mission is to inspire you to have a better quality of life and to help you achieve enough energy to enjoy the rest of the days of your life.

  • You just published a new book, Fat to Fit with Cindy Lane Ross

This book will become your kitchen bible. Has lots of cooking tips, nutrition information and lots of clean eating.

  • What keeps you motivated to live a healthy life?
  • Are you able to help all fitness levels?
We cater to all fitness levels.
  • Tell us about your national blog www.fattofitwithcindylaneross.com and the kind of information you throw out to the public each week- Motivational Mondays, Total Body Tuesday.
  • What do you do to stay in shape?
  • You also have your own radio show? Fat to Fit Radio with Cindy Lane Ross & Co-Host Larisa Dixon. Each week we talk about life, fitness, and nutrition.

Additional information about Family Court in Louisville, KY

One Family, One Judge, One Court

Jefferson County Family Court is comprised of 10 divisions and 10 judges. Family Court is involved in the most intimate and complex aspects of human nature and social relations. For that reason, Family Court uses a case management process that distinguishes it from other trial courts. With the One Family, One Judge, One Court approach, cases are presented in a single court, allowing the same judge to hear all matters involving a particular family. This reduces the stress that can arise when individuals are shuttled between courts to resolve a variety of issues.

Because Family Court gives cases involving families and children the highest priority, these cases do not compete with criminal and other civil cases for judicial time. As a division of Circuit Court, which is the highest trial court in Kentucky, Family Court employs full-time judges with the same qualifications as those who serve the other divisions of Circuit Court.

Family Court jurisdiction includes the following:

  • Dissolution of marriage
  • Spousal support and equitable distribution
  • Child custody, support and visitation
  • Paternity, adoption
  • Domestic violence
  • Dependency, neglect and abuse
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Runaways, truancy, beyond control
