"I've been kicking it around the last year," Smith told The Journal regarding his decision. He noted that he becomes eligible for his 25-year high risk retirement at the end of the month. He added that if he took another job after retiring, "it wouldn't be in law enforcement."

As the Washington D.C .crowd was engrossed in the Russian President Putin and President Obama dustup over the Syr ian chemical weapons, the rightwing Republicans, the Ebenezer Scrooge Party, was voting for the 41st time to defund ObamaCare. Not only were the House Re publicans exercising another vote to trash millions of Americans without healthcare, they also, once again, went after the poor in America who de pend on the government for something to eat. The Republicans refused to fund the national food program, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Pro gram (SNAP) as part of the Farm Bill. It doesnt matter that in helping real farmers, the Farm Bill is also a form of federal welfare for rich gentlemen farmers, including some congressional members, the self-righteous, self-serving hypocrites on the right who wont hesitate to take food from hungry kids and old people. About two-thirds of SNAP re cipients are children and the elderly. Ive heard all the right-wing claims that people on subsistence programs are nothing more than wel fare queens suckling on the government teat. These right-wingers must live in another universe because if they should venture out into the real America they would know that millions of Americans barely eke by. The work I do takes me into the hinterlands. I see and talk with real Americans. Poorly educated, no money, living from day-to-day and no chance in Hell that their lives will change for the better. All are good people, honest, hardworking, if there is any work to be had, but they and their kids will never achieve the American Dream. You can be a self-righteous scrooge and look down your nose at these poor people, but they are people with basic rights, one of which is not to starve in America. Republican Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader, has proposed a law that will cut $40 billion from about 6 million people. There are about 50 million hungry people in America, about 15% of the total American population. Most of the SNAP recipients are children, old people and the disabled. The aver age SNAP payment is $133 monthly which will buy beans and bacon, but not much more. Beginning in 2007, the poverty rate increased from 13% to 15%. The reasonthe Recession, but, as ex pected, Republicans blame the increase in poverty levels on President Obama. The poverty rate was 15% in Presi On average, SNAP money is spent by the 3rd week of the month. In spite of all the how we love our military talk, there are approximately 900,000 military people in the SNAP program. While the news media was en grossed in Russian President Pu tins claims that Americans arent exceptional, my local newspaper had an article on the hungry and homeless in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. (www. okaloosawaltonhomeless.com) As of January 2013, there were a total of 925 households with a total of 1,658 homeless people in these two counties. Flor ida has the third largest homeless population in the U.S. Right-wingers apparently believe that if a person is poor, on the government dole for food subsistence, then its that persons fault. In many instances, that is true. People make bad choices. They refuse to get an education or learn a trade that will make them a living. In my view, success or lack of success in life is also dependent on a major factoropportunityto a point. Children raised in poor conditions in the hinter lands do not normally have the same opportunity as the child from the ghetto may become successful life. Life is a gamble for most of us. poor people. The question for all of us is what we do about it. Right-wingers will say, Get a job. I agree, but children and the aged cant get a job. Its a mystery to me why the right-wingers have zero compassion for the less fortunate in society. Do they think that people want to live on the streets, eat out of garbage cans? Do they think that old people want to live their last days in poverty? Do they think that school kids want to tell their friends that they are homeless and spend their nights in a car, a van, a cheap motel room or on the streets? Many are on their high-horse because Putin ques tioned our claim that we as a society are excep tional. Exceptionalism is the belief that we, as Americans, are different from other societies. But what is exceptional about the right-wing belief that we should collectively punish Americas poor?

Health Talk by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN American Institute for Cancer Research Q: What exactly is a plant-based diet? I get confused about what people are specifically recommending when they talk about this? A: In general, theres a good chance when you hear the phrase plantbased diet it means that the majority of what you eat comes from plant foods vegetables, fruits, grain products, beans, nuts and seeds. Some people or groups really mean a vegetarian diet (with no meat or poultry), or even a vegan diet (with no animal products at all). A predominantly plantbased diet whether or not its vegetarian is at the heart of nutrition recommendations to pro mote overall health and reduce cancer risk. This allows us to get plenty of the plant foods that antioxidant nutrients and phytochemicals, while more easily managing on foods that are not very concentrated in calories. If someone chooses to products, these foods play a supporting, rather than starring, role. Although highly processed foods like chips, crackers and pastries may technically be plant-based, these foods wont provide the and minimally processed foods and can lead to eating more calories than you need. So, choose a balanced, predominantly whole-foods, plant-based diet to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) is the cancer charity that fosters research on the relationship of nutrition, physical activity and weight management to cancer erature and educates the public about the results.

Five plays later Jordan rumbled into the end punt just before it scooted out of bounds and raced 70 yards for a score. Blountstown led 21-0 at the half. Graceville received the second half kickoff and on their second play of the half hit a 50 yard reception down the sideline. That one of the night and over half of their total yards. The pass reception got Graceville down to the Blountstown 30, their closest sniff of the end zone, but two incompletions and two consecu tive tackles for a loss and Graceville gave the ball over on downs. Blountstown wasted no time and four plays yards away for his second score of the night and the 28-0 lead. Graceville gambled on their next possession going for it on line. A blitzing Jordan tackled the Graceville QB for a 2 yard loss and the gamble was lost. Graceville was 0-12 on third down conver sions and 0-5 on fourth down conversions on the night. Blountstown took advantage of later when Fabian Solomon ran the ball in from 5 yards out for the last score of the night with 50 and the 35-0 win. Offensively, Blountstown had 38 yards apiece. Jordan was 3-5 yards), B. Bozeman (5 yards) and Tripp Taylor (5 yards) had the 3 receptions for the Tigers. Anthony Wyrick led the Tiger 7 tackles each. Head coach Greg Jordan was pleased with the win but still sees areas that his team can improve. You see the score and look at the stats and you say that we dominated this game mistakes that must be corrected as we enter our district schedule. We need to stay healthy and continue to improve and become a little more balanced on offense and we can turn this good team into a great one. Blountstown opens up its new district schedule this week with a home game against the South Bowles Field in Blountstown this Friday night, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. (CT) to watch the Tigers begin ABOVE: Shontavious Peterson and Fabion Solomon work together to bring their man to the turf.
