NEWS BRIEFS Area unemployment down TALLAHASSEE Recently the state and local unemployment figures for November 2013 were released. In November, the unemployment rate in the WORKFORCE plus region Gadsden, Leon, and Wakulla counties was 5.4 percent. This was 1.4 percentage points lower than the regions year-ago rate of 6.8 percent, and 0.8 percentage points below the state rate of 6.2 percent. Out of a labor force of 185,949, there were 10,031 unemployed residents in the region. Gadsden Countys unemployment rate (6.6 percent) was the highest in the WORKFORCE plus region, followed by Leon County (5.3 percent) and Wakulla County (5.1 percent). Nonagricultural employment in the Tallahassee metro area Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, and Wakulla counties was 172,500 in November 2013, up 5,000 jobs over the year. The Tallahassee metro area had higher growth rates than the state in seven industries: trade, transportation, and utilities (+6.6 percent); education and health services and leisure and hospitality (+4.5 percent each); information (+3.1 percent); other services (+2.9 percent); financial activities (+2.8 percent); and government (+1.0 percent).

INDEX Comics . . .A11 Crossword . .A11 Opinion . . .A4 Obituaries . .A7 Classifieds . .A12 Church News .A9 From staff reports State releases high school grades CHERI HARRISTimesAs the formula for school grades became more rigorous, East Gadsden High School maintained its C, according to preliminary information released Dec. 18 for the 2012-2013 school year by the Florida Department of Education. According to an FDOE press release, the grading formula became more stringent for the 2012-2013 school year because in earlier years, learning gain targets for the lowest-performing 25 percent of students were not counted. Going forward, as more Florida schools earn grades of A and B, the grading scale is adjusted upward to encourage continued improvement. Because more than 75 percent of high schools earned an A or B for this past school year, the grading scale for high schools will be adjusted upward for 2013-2014 school grades. Statewide, 240 high schools and combination schools earned As. These results are pending an appeal window that ends Jan. 22. Gadsden County School Superintendent Reginald James said he was pleased EGHS was able to maintain the C it earned the prior school year. While West Gadsden High School did not fare as well, sliding from a D to an F, James expressed confidence in the schools principal, Dr. Ida Walker. He described this past school year, Walkers first at WGHS, as transitional because she was in the process of putting together her team. Walker told theTimes that though her schools grade is released with high school grades, it is actually a combination school that includes both middleand high-school students. And the schools grade includes, for example, a score reflecting the performance of eighth-grade science students. Walker said the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores are also weighted differently for regular high schools and combination schools, and that if WGHS had been weighted as a regular high school, it would have earned a C and been just 18 points away from a B. Were graded totally differently than any school in the county, she said. Walker said statewide, the percentage of combination schools is small. To improve this years scores, Walker said students are already facing more academically rigorous exercises, such as providing written explanations to test questions rather than simply responding to multiple choice. Thats one of the big ones we did this year, she said. Some students are also studying complete novels rather than reading passages and writing essays about them, Walker said. For the 2013-2014 school year, Walker said seventh-graders will be tested on civics in the FCAT and high school students will see standardized testing on U.S. history. So were looking forward to everything we have now, she said, plus those two. The FCAT writing test is Feb. 25 and 26; FCAT reading is April 22. Common core testing is May 5 through 12. With students and staff members working hard and implementing more rigorous strategies, Walker said she looks forward to high scores for this school year. James shares her outlook. Dr. Walker has a track record of turning around schools, James said, so thats one of the reasons Im really optimistic. As more Florida schools earn As and Bs, the grading scale is adjusted upward. CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentThe Town of Havana is a real North Florida gem. Incorporated in 1906, Havana has evolved from a small tobacco farming community to a center for arts and antiques, overflowing with character and small town charm. Every year scores of visitors come to downtown Havana to shop, dine and attend unique events like the pumpkin festival or lawnmower parade. In an interview with the Times, Town Manager Howard McKinnon discussed the biggest challenge the town faces going into 2014 the drilling of a new well. Because of an increase in population, the Environmental Protection Agency has tightened the restrictions on water quality, prompting the need for the new well. There are certain parameters that deal with the health and safety of a water well, and Havana was given an exception for a parameter that deals with total dissolved solids, said McKinnon. Little more than a year ago, we crossed the magic number that made us no longer a small system. There are various options for improving water quality but McKinnon explained that drilling a new well would be the most affordable. The most economical option was to drill another well and abandon the current one, and thats what the council decided to do, he said. We have a piece of land thats close to the Lake Francis subdivision were well be drilling another well. In the end, its going to cost us approximately $2 million to drill the well because we are also going to do some upgrades to the entire system. Hopefully the project will be completed a year from Havana: 2013 IN REVIEW See YEAR/ Page A2 See JOBS/ Page A2

The holiday season didnt exactly get started with a bang for the Robert F. Munroe boys, as the team dropped consecutive road contests before the holiday break. On Thursday, Dec. 19, the Bobcats traveled to Panama City for their second meeting with North Bay Haven. The Bobcats struggled to score early on and found themselves behind 3524 at the half. The hosts would eventually lead by 24 at the end of the third quarter before the Bobcats closed to the final of 72-54. Looking for positives, we did win the fourth quarter, said Coach Joey Birdsong. We rebounded poorly, however, and had a hard time holding on to the ball. The Bobcats were led in scoring by Jalyn Lewis, as the senior tallied a season-high 43 that included seven threepointers. Sean Newton and Joey Sloan added four points each and Newton collected five rebounds. Friday evening found the Bobcats battling with district rival Tallavana at the Lions Den. The Lion quickly raced out to a 21-9 first quarter lead and never looked back. Senior Isiah Sutton scored 26 to pace Tallavana and the Bobcats struggled to contain the athletic senior. Sutton was the difference-maker, said Birdsong. Hes just a very strong player and finishes so well at the rim. A lot of his points came on put backs after offensive rebounds. We just didnt match up very well with him. Leading the Bobcat scoring was Jalyn Lewis with 26, Max Baroody with 10, and Will Harris with eight. Sean Newton grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Bobcat defenders. We actually did some good things with regard to the offense, said Birdsong. We did a better job of passing the ball to the open man. Rebounding is still an area that weve got improve upon, but Im pleased with Newton and Joey Sloans improvement just in the last couple of games. After a two week layoff, the Bobcats return to action Jan. 8 with a road game against Liberty County. The Bobcats return home Jan. 10 in a district match-up with FAMU high. Theyre favored to win the district, so well have our hands full, said Birdsong. Well see how much better we can get over the holiday break. 000GZOS For information about WORKFORCE plus and the programs it offers, go to www.wfplus.org or call 1-866WFP-JOB1.

McKinnon also listed economic development and improvements to the medical center as goals for 2014. Economic development is a big initiative, McKinnon said. If you look at our downtown area, we certainly have a very distinct character, and over the years it has been able to survive. Weve got a lot of very smart entrepreneurs that have been able to come up with marketing ideas and rise and meet the challenge of a bad economy. About four months ago the town council formed an economic development committee, made up of people that either live or have businesses in or near Havana. The idea is to sit down and develop a vision for economic development for this community. Health care is another area were looking at. Were trying to get some grants to make some renovations to the medical center, Mckinnon said. Wed like to make some improvements to the current facility, and wed also like to create some more space for storage.

Mama, dont take my Kodachrome; Mama, dont take my Kodachrome; Mama, dont take my Kodachrome away, still sends me off to another world every time I hear Paul Simon sing that song. I believe those lyrics helped me to stop seeing things in black and white, or ordinary, taking me away from the doldrums of everyday life, and to drift lazily, dreamfully, into one of color, beauty and promise. Everything looks worse in black and white; makes you think all the worlds a sunny day, oh yeah... Did you have a camera and get to use Kodachrome in it? After the film was developed, one had the thrill of looking at the colorful world captured on that precious roll with a slide projector on a screen. If you didnt have a real screen to view your colorful slides, you hung a white sheet up and viewed them. Or, if you just didnt want to go to that extreme, perhaps you loaded Kodacolor into your camera and enjoyed pictures you could hold in your hand. Did you have a 35millimeter camera when they first came out and you had to do all the adjusting yourself? My old Coast Guard Radio Station supervisor, Tom Alburger, sold me my first 35mm camera, a Petri, at a price I could afford, in 1960. It wasnt easy taking good pictures. On those early cameras you adjusted your own shutter speeds, F-stop settings, and ASA or film speeds. When you did take good slides, you were ecstatic because you had made all of your own calculations. When I bought my first Petri camera I was stationed in Hawaii, a place everyone wanted to take beautiful colored pictures. I worked very hard and diligently at taking good slides. Most of my first developed Kodachrome rolls were too light or too dark. I remember going to the beach at Waikiki every night, armed with my Petri, bound and determined to take some prize-winning shots of Hawaiian sunsets. Finally I took some great photos. I submitted a few and received honorable mention in a local photography contest. Things dont seem to have changed a lot in 50 years. People still seem to enjoy looking at the world through cameras. Its just a lot easier today. Even a child can take wonderful colored shots using an iPhone or an up-todate cell phone. People still are concerned about capturing those Kodak moments on film for eternity whenever they take trips or vacations. Is the whole experience of trying to capture our world on sunny days a way of escaping from the doldrums of our everyday lives? Country singer John Conlees greatest hit was Rose-Colored Glasses, or another song dedicated to looking at our world in Technicolor or through tainted eye glasses. Up until a few years ago I still had my colored slides from Hawaii. One roll of Kodachrome I had developed was of a time when I was driving my good friends sports car around the island. The color had faded quite a bit, but it brought back some very pleasant moments from long ago. Ive owned many cameras since the time I purchased my first 35-mm Petri so long ago. Today, I even have a digital one so that I can upload my pictures to share, on occasion, with a good friend. How about you? Do you still take colorful pictures to remind you of the better times in your life? Do you listen extra hard if and when you hear Paul Simon sing, pleading with his mother to do anything but take his Kodachrome away? For Christians its more a matter of light and no light. If you believe, your world is one of light, or color. Light denotes optimism, the pleasure we obtain from the promise of an afterlife. We do all in our power to stay out of the darkness or Satans realm. Heres hoping that you are still viewing your world through rose-colored glasses or a camera capable of producing wonderful color. God bless you. As we launch into the new year, lets reflect for a few minutes on who we are and where we hope to go in the 12 months ahead. 2013 was a year of both daunting challenges and new responsibilities. Life is about transitions, and as an incurable optimist I believe the year ahead will open new doors and present promising opportunities for all of us. Traditionally, New Years resolutions are about making a commitment to do something different in our lives, perhaps going in a new direction from that of the past. In 2014 I resolve:To appreciate my family, friends, and colleagues for who they are, what they mean to me and others, and to gracefully overlook some things they do (or dont do!). None of us is perfect, and accepting that reality helps relationships flourish.To act upon wrongs that need righting, crass statements that require correction, and offenses that demand just responses. We set a positive example by not accepting negativity in others.To be a valuable teammate and to trust others to do their best. Each of us should know what position we play, and regularly practice our skills to be our personal best.To actively listen to the voices of children and elders. Accepting the wisdom of innocence and experience is both free and priceless.To accept that I dont know everything. By collaborating with others who know much more, together we can create a great brain trust and blend expertise.To pleasantly surprise someone every day with a genuine smile and unexpected kindness in word and deed. Lifes subtle gifts of compassion and concern are cherished.To respect and celebrate the diversity of faiths, feelings and fashions. Differences are natural and honoring each others perspectives creates mutual admiration.To exercise artistic expression for its intrinsic value. The vitality of the instrumental, literary, dance, visual or vocal arts fuels the soul and expands the mind to new possibilities. To invest a thoughtful minute before I speak or act. Regret is often preventable. Reversing harm is one of lifes most vexing challenges.To honor those who courageously sacrifice for us at home and abroad, care for our health, educate, protect us and perform the healing and helping arts so that our quality of life is improved.To share even if I think I dont have enough. Setting an example by giving to others in need is one of the best lessons for children to observe. To protect, defend and advocate for people who rely on me. Give special attention to the needs of others of every stage of life who may not know how to find their own voice. To preserve natural environments for their beauty and bounty. Natural settings are home to plant life and species, which are too often victims of our wants, FRANK CLEMENTEAmerican ForumWhen holiday shoppers make a bad choice, the worst result may be an ugly sweater. But Congress recently made a bad choice that will ruin the holidays for over a million families and will spoil the coming new year for millions more. That was the decision imposed by conservatives not to extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, while maintaining huge tax loopholes for wealthy Wall-Streeters and multinational corporations. Congress can reverse its choice in early January, but the clock is ticking. We are emerging from the worst employment crisis in three-quarters of a century. Job losses in the Great Recession were very deep. The unemployment rate hit 10 percent for only the second time since the 1930s, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Moreover, the ranks of the long-term unemployed those out of work for more than six months hit a post-World War II record. Even now, over a third of those out of work have been so long term. And little wonder: In November, there were almost three unemployed people for every job opening. The problem isnt that people dont want to work; its that there arent enough jobs. Faced with this cruel reality, in the recent budget deal members of Congress had the chance to extend unemployment benefits for 1.3 million Americans including 20,000 recent veterans whose benefits run out three days after Christmas. Instead, they turned their backs on those in need and headed home for the holidays. Whats more, without Congressional action, another 3.6 million longterm unemployed will lose their benefits in 2014. Extending unemployment benefits is not only a lifeline for the jobless; it also boosts our economy, as hard-pressed families immediately use the money to buy essentials. While playing Scrooge to constituents Congress played Santa Claus to campaign contributors by refusing in the budget deal to close any tax loopholes that benefit corporations and the wealthy. Closing just three tax loopholes would raise four times more revenue than the $25 billion it costs to extend expiring unemployment benefits for millions of Americans next year. A recent poll by Hart Research Associates shows that the American public strongly supports such measures. Congress could raise $60 billion if it closed one loophole that subsidizes the off-shoring of American jobs. Corporations are allowed to deduct from their federal income taxes all the costs of sending a U.S. plant or office offshore (shipping bills, building the new facility, interest costs on the loans to finance the move). Yet, companies dont have to pay U.S. taxes on the foreign operations profits until those earnings are brought home, which many companies never do. The American public supports closing this corporate tax loophole by a whopping 62 percent to 36 percent margin. If Wall Street billionaires were required to simply treat their salaries as salaries rather than more lightly taxed capital gains we could bring in $17.4 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Right now hedge fund chiefs and other money managers can cut their tax bill almost in half by claiming their huge earnings are eligible for a 23.8 percent rate, when they should be paying 39.6 percent. The American people strongly disapprove of this carried interest loophole, 68 percent to 28 percent. Corporations play lots of financial games with their stock options (the right to purchase shares, often at a big discount). When they award them to top executives, corporations write off on their taxes more than their own books say the options are worth. They also use them to get around a $1 million limit on the deductibility of salaries fueling excessive executive compensation. Facebook used stock options manipulation to create a $16 billion tax deduction, according to Senate investigators. Stopping this option abuse would raise $25 billion, the exact cost of the unemployment extension. So Congress has to reverse course. Its already spoiled the Christmas holiday for more than a million out-of-work Americans. Now it needs to make New Years resolution that the first order of business when it returns in January will be to renew benefits for the long-term unemployed. And if it wants to pay for it, close a tax loophole or two to make sure big corporations and wealthy money managers pay a fairer share of taxes.

A6THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY2, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM FAMILY FEATURES For the more than 25 million Americans living with diabetes, food choices are critical to maintaining their health. Chef Sam Talbot, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 12 years old, understands those challenges. But with his new cookbook he proves that diabetics dont have to sacrifice flavor in order to follow a healthy eating plan. Talbot earned national recognition as the runner-up in Season 2 of Bravos hit TV show Top Chef. In his new book, The Sweet Life: Diabetes without Boundaries, he shares how diabetes has affected but has not compromised his life and career, and offers 75 fresh, all-natural recipes that can be enjoyed by both diabetics and non-diabetics. Cooking to Manage DiabetesDoctors recommend that people with diabetes follow a healthy, well bal anced diet that includes plenty of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables and carbo hydrates that rank lower on the gl ycemic index (GI). (See sidebar for more on the glycemic index.) Pears are one of my favorite fruits to use in recipes, says Talbot. They are a low GI fruit, theyre high in fiber, and the flavor of a ripe pear is just out of this world. They are incredibly versatile in sweet and savory recipes in all types of world cuisines. They can be part of any meal of the day. The two recipes here are from Talbots book, and showcase the fresh, sweet flavor of pears. For more information, visit www.SamTalbot.com, and for additional pear recipes visit www.usapears.org. The Glycemic IndexThe glycemic index (GI) rates carbo hydrates on a scale of 1 to 100 based on how rapidly a food item raises blood sugar levels after eating. Foods that rank high on the glycemic index are digested rapidly, which produces marked fluctua tions in blood sugar and insulin levels. Foods with a low glycemic index are digested slowly and raise blood sugar and insulin levels gradually.

To judge a pears ripeness, USA Pear growers advise you to check the neck. Press the neck, or stem end, of the pear. If it yields to gentle pr essure, its ripe, sweet and juicy. If it feels firm, simply leave the pear at room temperature to ripen within a few days. Dont refrigerate your pears unless you want to slow their ripening. Chef Sam TalbotPhoto credit: Sarah Kehoe

Putting the spotlight on dark factories E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What are dark factories and are they good for the environment? Mitchell Pearson, Erie, PASo-called dark factories otherwise known as lights out or automatic factories are manufacturing facilities that do not depend on human labor to get work done. While they may have some benefits for the environment they are certainly not beneficial overall considering the impact widespread adoption would have on needed jobs. Without human line workers, such factories can operate without lights, heating and cooling and other amenities required by human workers. Of course, very few such facilities are completely automated, as human workers are usually required to set up equipment or remove completed parts. And some run lights-out between human labor shifts or as separate shifts to meet increasing demand or save money. And while the up-front costs of setting up automated work routines manned by robots and other machines may be Earth TALK See DARK/ Page A15 Milestones Foister Dunn To WedMr. and Mrs. Thomas Dunn cordially invite you to attend the marriage of their daughter, Mary Christine Dunn to James Curry Foister, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Foister, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, at Camilla Methodist Church, 39 S.

A8THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY2, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM TABITHA ALTERMANMother Earth LivingI was the last one to arrive at dinner. The three friends already seated had ordered a baguette with butter to tide them over as they waited to order their meals. I came hungry, too, but when I laid eyes on the crusty white bread before me, all I could see was a pile of sugar an image that made it easy for me to ignore the bread while I waited to order my dinner. Having been researching sugar for this article where it hides, how our bodies make use of it, which kinds are best and worst my brain was primed to see foods as a composition of smaller parts. In the case of white bread, I only saw glucose. And I was grateful. Like everyone, I have my vices and I enjoy them. I find great pleasure in cooking and eating. I love sweets. Still, I aim to consume food conscientiously. This means making some tradeoffs. For my portion of sugar, Id rather have a well-made chocolate dessert than a couple slices of white bread as an appetizer, an occasional whiskey instead of a daily soda, homemade pasta for dinner rather than biscuits and gravy (white flour bread smothered in white flour sauce) for breakfast. And Id rather have sugar I know about than stealthily sweetened processed food. Ill have my Caesar salad without the added sugar, thank you. Once you know what to look for (keep reading), youll be amazed at how prevalent sugar is in our food system. It shows up in shocking quantities in a wide range of surprising and not-so-surprising foods, from salad dressings to soda. Yes, refined sugar is bad for us. Yes, it is addictive and can be toxic. But we are human, and as such, we are evolutionarily drawn to the calorie-dense prize that is sweet stuff. Aside from those of us willing to drastically monitor our diets, most of us are going to consume sugar sometimes. A bit of education can help us be smarter about when and how to do so.Sugar in our bodiesSugar comes in many forms: Glucose is the fuel our bodies cells burn. While glucose is vital and necessary for us to survive, it disrupts blood sugar balance when we consume too much of it in the form of added sugars, leading to a range of health maladies. Table sugar (sucrose) is part glucose, part fructose. Fructose, the sugar in fruit and in high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is sweeter than glucose and presents an entirely different set of problems in our bodies. Maltose, the sugar in beer, is two parts glucose. Milk sugar, or lactose, is part glucose, part galactose. Dextrose is glucose that comes from plants like corn and grapes. Nearly all nonmeat foods including vegetables, legumes, breads and whole grains contain natural sugars, but our bodies process them differently. The carbohydrates in vegetables, legumes and whole grains are broken apart and used slowly and efficiently by the body. Starches such as bread, pasta, corn and potatoes are composed of chains of sugars that break down quickly, releasing their glucose particles into the bloodstream. Some do this faster than others. White bread becomes sugar in our blood almost as quickly as pure glucose. The speed with which our bodies turn different foods into glucose (blood sugar) is ranked according to the glycemic index (GI), with 100 being pure glucose and having the most rapid effect on blood sugar. Wonder bread has a GI of 73; whole wheat berries, 41; an apple, 39; peanuts, 14. Every molecule of energy that enters your body in the form of food is assigned to be either burned or stored, writes Mark Bittman in his recent book VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00. When you ingest more glucose than your body immediately needs, it is converted into fat to be stored. If you ingest more glucose before that fat is burned as fuel, that fat is stored indefinitely. The hormone that manages this process is insulin. When glucose is present in our bloodstream, insulin levels spike to help manage our use of it in various body tissues. Once the glucose has been used or stored as fat, our insulin levels dip, signaling us to eat again. If most of what we eat is quickly digestible carbohydrates, the roller coaster never ends. When we flood our bodies with a rush of glucose in the form of simple carbohydrates or pure sugar, our bodies release more and more insulin to help convert it into storable fat. Over time, our cells can become resistant to the insulin, which leads to a host of ills known collectively as metabolic syndrome. The consequences include everything from high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity to asthma, dementia and cancer. Gary Taubes, author of Why We Get Fat, says the process of getting fat is driven more by quality than by quantity. When insulin levels are elevated, we accumulate fat in our fat tissue; when these levels fall, we liberate fat from the fat tissue and burn it for fuel. Insulin levels are determined by the carbohydrates we eat. The more carbohydrates we eat, and the easier they are to digest and the sweeter they are, the more insulin we will ultimately secrete, meaning that the level of it in our bloodstream is greater and so is the fat we retain in our fat cells. Easily digestible carbohydraterich foods include highly refined flour and grains, starchy vegetables and sugars, and liquid carbs such as beer, fruit juice and soda, which are among the worst offenders for driving up insulin levels. These carbohydrates literally make us fat, and by driving us to accumulate fat, they make us hungrier and they make us sedentary, Taubes says. (For more about how a diet rich in easily digestible carbohydrates robs us of energy, check out chapter three of Why We Get Fat.)Added fructose: The worst offenderWhen it comes to processing sugars in our bodies, fructose appears to be especially problematic. Once glucose enters the bodys cells, hunger signals eventually turn off (the dip in the spike-anddip insulin roller coaster). Fructose doesnt work this way. It is transported directly to the liver to be metabolized. When large amounts are consumed, fructose is mostly turned into the notorious fats known as triglycerides, which raise the risk of fatal heart disease, among various other problems. All fruits contain fructose, but the fructose in fruit is likely not the problem. Nobody is or should be worried about the fructose in fruit, because fruits do not have all that much, and whatever fructose they do have is accompanied by fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other good things, writes nutrition expert Marion Nestle in Why Calories Count. Added fructose is another matter. Much fructose is consumed in sweetened beverages fruit juices, fruit drinks and sodas. These now account for more than 20 percent of daily calories among Americans, which is why advice to stop drinking your calories makes good sense. Liquid food does not seem to signal the end to hunger in the same way that solid food does, according to Nestle. Aviva Romm, herbalist and M.D., suggests replacing fruit juices with water, lemon water or herbal tea. Try peppermint, spearmint, chamomile, lemon balm, hibiscus, rose hips and ginger teas, all of which are perfectly safe for children, too.Sugar highConsuming sugar triggers a response in the brains so-called reward center in the same manner that cocaine, alcohol, nicotine and other addictive substances do. It is quite literally like a drug. The foods that cause the problems make us crave more of the foods that cause the problems. This cycle of addiction can be broken, but it requires an initial period of fighting cravings followed by a new way of healthier eating. In the typical American diet, about half or more calories are derived from carbs many of them the simple, quick-burning variety so its no less than revolutionary to attempt to eat a different way. The three major macronutrients that make up our diet are carbohydrates, proteins and fats. If we reduce simple carbohydrates from our diets, we must increase other components to make up for it. To limit quick-burning carbs, well need to eat proteins, fats and slowburning carbohydrates: meat, eggs and dairy; vegetables and legumes; minimally processed whole grains and plenty of high-quality fats. Fighting sugar cravings is no small feat, but with better-regulated blood sugar, you may eventually have a more sustainable level of energy and feel naturally more active. To help curb sugar addiction, try replacing fruit juices with lemon All about sugar All sugars are not created equally. Photos by Thomas Gibson ABOVE: Liquid sugars such as those in fruit juices and sodas are among the worst offenders for driving up insulin levels.

Welcome to the grand buffet For the past several years on Thanksgiving and Christmas, my husband and I have gone to an out-of-the-way place here in Florida for their Grand Holiday Buffet and they aint lying. Thats one honking spread they put on. Heres just a fraction of this years Christmas menu: roasted pears with herb goat cheese, roasted sweet potato soup with duck cracklings, grilled zucchini with tamarind balsamic reduction, peel-and-eat shrimp with cocktail sauce, made-to-order waffles and omelets, slow-roasted prime rib with Au Jus, roast pork loin with black cherry glaze, traditional sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, Yukon Gold garlic mashed potatoes, Bananas Foster, orange creamsicle cake, pecan pie and I cant forget the charcuterie station with cheeses and nuts, fresh fruit, liver pts, antipasto meats and assorted breads and butter. Plus, bottomless glasses of champagne. Weeks before we go, we print out the menu and read it out loud, oohing and ahhing and sighing. Drooling and moaning may or may not have taken place on occasion. We look forward to these meals with eager anticipation. However, I must confess that my eagerness is mixed with angst. It seems that although outwardly my stomach may be big and flabby, when it comes to my actual stomach, all you can eat for me is not much. I fill up easily and fast. So every year I strategize over how to approach this annual eating event of Olympic Games scope, such as studying the training tips of championship-winning competitive eaters like Joey Chestnut who can scarf down 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Ive tried drinking a gallon of water the day before, hoping to stretch my stomach a bit so I can fit in more food, but so far that hasnt helped. Ive tried wearing loose pants, not eating anything after bedtime the night before, pacing myself as I eat, yet I still cant eat as much as I want. Ive even toyed with the idea of bringing a plastic-lined tote bag with me and stuffing it with shrimp scampi and red velvet cake, but thats just wrong. Besides, I havent figured out how to do it without getting caught. It doesnt seem fair. As I carefully fill my plate with teeny taste-size portions of yummy deliciousness, I watch in envy as everyone around me piles their plates with mountainsize servings, eats it all and then goes back for more. Thats what I want! All I want is more. More baby artichokes, more green beans almandine. More bread pudding with bourbon sauce, more linguini, more pie. Alas, its not to be. (One year I did try to go beyond my limit. Lets just say I overflowed. On my shoes.) Recently, I was thinking about our annual buffet pilgrimages and how bountiful and Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES See GRACE/ Page A16 First Community P.B. Church is at 7049 Salem Road, Quincy.

ANSWERS ANSWERS Is it or is it not the new millennium? Well, according to NASA scientists, the new millennium actually starts January 1, 2001. Thats because there is no year. Instead, the first millennium started January 1, 1. The first millennium ended 1,000 years later on December 31, 1000. The second millennium started January 1, 1001, and will end 1,000 years later on December 31, 2000. These dates are based on the calendar that is used around the world. It is called the Gregorian calendar. In the 500s or sixth century, a scholar named Dionysius Exiguus organized a table of dates of Easter, and he set up the Gregorian calendar. The beginning of this year will bring about many changes. For instance, ask an adult you know if you can look at his/her checkbook. If the date area in the upper right-hand corner of the check has 19_, that person is going to have to get new checks. However, more people are concerned about the Y2KYear Two 1000computer problems that may come. Many computer systems have only two digits when it comes to showing a year, like for 1948. Because of this, people are concerned that the for the year 2000 will be read as the year 1900 instead. Encouraged by her dad to be useful, Lucretia Coffin Mott worked hard so women could have rights, including the right to vote. Born in January 1793 in Nantucket, Massachusetts, Mott worked against slavery and alcohol, and she played a role in starting the womens suffrage right to votemovement. Along with rearing six children, Mott was a teacher. It was during her time as a teacher that Mott realized how unfair it was that women only made about half of what men made as teachers. At an 1840 meeting of the World Anti-Slavery Conference, Mott met Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Because they were women, they were not allowed to be involved in the conference. That led to the two women starting the womens rights movement in 1848. They wanted basic civil rights, like being able to vote and own property, for women, too. By 1880, the year Mott died, women could hold property in many states and could attend some colleges. However, Mott did not get to see her hard work in the suffrage movement pay off. Women were not allowed to vote until 1920. WORKING FORWOMENS RIGHTS A10THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY2, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM

Eat high-protein meals throughout the day, especially at breakfast. Stock your kitchen, office and purse with high-protein snacks for sustaining energy. Also eat plenty of high-quality fats such as those found in avocados, coconuts, nuts, olives and sustainably raised meats. Fats are good for you, and they help you feel full. If youre craving fruit, enjoy it whole. Bananas, berries, strawberries, kiwi and citrus contain less than half their calories in fructose, and are especially good choices. Bananas, kiwi, pineapples and plums also contain serotonin, which can help the brain fight cravings. To avoid loading your shopping cart with sugar, carefully read labels. Sugar is almost never listed as sugar on processed food packaging. Here are your other watch words, courtesy of the Harvard School of Public Health: agave nectar, brown sugar, cane crystals, cane sugar, corn sweetener, corn syrup, crystalline fructose, dextrose, evaporated cane juice, fructose, fruit juice concentrate, glucose, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, invert sugar, lactose, maltose, malt syrup, molasses, raw sugar, sucrose and syrup. If you are trying to cut out refined carbs while eating in restaurants, its easiest to ask for salad or vegetables in place of white bread and to think carefully about where sugar and white flour might be hiding: soup (as a thickener), gravy, sweet sauces and dressings. When you retrain your palate, you will eventually be able to taste sweetness where you may not have noticed it before in ranch dressing, crackers and the like. Lightly sweetened foods will begin to taste great. The natural sweetness in fruit may become immensely satisfying. And youll enjoy the desserts you do grant yourself like never before.Excerpted from Mother Earth Living.

Our bad habits usually came about in small increments over a long period of time. That usually means changing them will also take time and probably will happen in small units. Youre not going to lose that 35 pounds next week, but you might lose 4 or 5 pounds next month. In some ways, changing habits or behaviors is similar to undertaking a home remodeling project. You need to start by accepting three basic things:Its going to take longer than you hoped.Its going to be more difficult than you expected.It may even take more than one try to reach your goal. Accepting these concepts can give you a solid, realistic foundation from which to plan and take actions that will bring success. A good first step is to forget rigid time deadlines and instead set achievable minigoals that will eventually lead to your final goal. You probably cant stop smoking tomorrow, but today you can make an appointment to talk to your doctor or check out the local hospitals smoking cessation program. For weight loss, its easy to feel depressed and like a failure when you dont drop that five pounds in week one, or when you slip up and eat that big dessert. So instead, set smaller, easier-toachieve goals. Maybe its just skipping that morning donut this week. Next week, perhaps its adding a daily walk after dinner. Most important is not giving up. Yes, you will make mistakes. Yes, you might even fail one or more times. Studies report losing weight often takes several tries, and quitting smoking as many as eight attempts. Just accept that youre human and fallible, but also capable of giving it another go. Try again, and you just might have one less resolution to make next New Years.Counseling Corner is provided by the American Counseling Association.

Photo submitted See SCHOOL/ Page A15 Tips to spend less on gas from www.fueleconomy.gov: Drive sensibly Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas. It can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town. Sensible driving is also safer for you and others, so you may save more than gas money. Observe the speed limit While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.30 per gallon for gas. Observing the speed limit is also safer. Remove excess weight Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially heavy ones. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your MPG by up to 2 percent. The reduction is based on the percentage of extra weight relative to the vehicles weight and affects smaller vehicles more than larger ones. Combine errands Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much fuel as one trip covering the same distance when the engine is warm. Avoid excessive idling Idling can use a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour, depending on engine size and air conditioner (AC) use. Turn off your engine when your vehicle is parked. It only takes a few seconds worth of fuel to restart your vehicle. Turning your engine on and off excessively, however, may increase starter wear.Gas-saving tips A12THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY2, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM

higher than setting up a traditional factory, on-going expenses can be significantly less given the lack of human payroll and other human-centric outlays. The first dark factories started appearing in Japan in the 1980s as companies there started to take advantage of improvements in the technology of robotics and automation to get around the high costs of human labor. At that time, business analysts predicted then that as technology improved and qualified workers became harder to find and more expensive to support, dark factories would become more prevalent around the world. But in the interim the spread of manufacturing to developing nations with cheap human labor may have temporarily forestalled the rise of dark factories. Also, General Motors unsuccessful implementation of automated manufacturing in the 1980s quality declined and sales fell accordingly soured many big companies on the concept back then. That said, there are many thriving examples of dark factories around the world. Many machine shops in the U.S. run unattended all or part of the time. Robots are commonplace now in the auto industry despite GMs faltering early on. Amazon.com makes extensive use of robotic systems in its distribution centers and last year even acquired the company behind the technology, Kiva Systems, for $775 million in cash. In Japan, FANUC Robotics operates a lightsout factory employing robots to make other robots. Japanese camera giant Canon recently announced that it is phasing out human workers at several camera factories by 2015. And in the Netherlands, Philips produces electric razors in a facility with 128 robots and nine human quality assurance workers. While widespread adoption, lights-out manufacturing could deliver substantial energy savings and thus be environmentally beneficial, but analysts wonder whether replacing human laborers with computers, machines and robots is a good thing for humanity overall. According to NaturalNews.com editor Mike Adams, the rise of automation is more likely to sharply divide the economic classes and cause widespread strife. Those who are replaced by robots will become jobless and homeless, he explains. Those whose lives are enriched by the benefit of the robots will become abundantly wealthy in the material quality of their lives.

000H09T beautiful they always are. I thought about how full I always feel and my intense longing to be able to contain more and what that really meant. I mean other than the obvious triviality, misguided pettiness and sinful gluttony. I remembered what the psalmist wrote: O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him (Psalm 34:8). Another translation says it like this: Oh, put God to the test and see how kind he is! See for yourself the way his mercies shower down on all who trust in him. At the buffet, my husband especially likes the seafood salad, and I like the smoked salmon thats always served whenever we go, and throughout the year we remember how good they taste and how we cant wait to taste them again. Someone once said that all of life illustrates biblical truth, and the truth is that, just as Ive tasted roast turkey with giblet gravy and spirited cranberry orange sauce and delighted in its goodness, Ive also tasted the goodness of God and the sweetness of his mercy and grace. He has been kind to me, patient with my foolishness, faithful despite my unfaithfulness, loving me consistently in all of my unloveliness. God has graciously set a table before me (and you, too), that we may feast, not on seafood salad and smoked salmon, as good as that may be, but on himself, never being full because theres always room for more of him, yet always being satisfied. Being satisfied thats all anyone wants anyway. Maybe Ive just been seeking it at the wrong table.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

GRACEContinued from Page A9 A16THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY2, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM TALLAHASSEE Average retail gasoline prices in Tallahassee have risen 2.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.30/gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddys daily survey of 201 gas outlets in Tallahassee. This compares with the national average that has increased 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.29/gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Tallahassee during the past week, prices yesterday were 2.2 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 5.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 4.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 2.2 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. The sub $3/gallon gas was great while it lasted, but unfortunately it has nearly completely dried up, said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. As of late Sunday night, zero states were seeing their averages under $3/gallon. As the New Year rolls in, this is a type of trend that were used to seeing. The bottom is behind us and prices generally begin the New Year on a higher note, like they will again this year. The trend wont last forever though, as January and February feature generally weak demand that should limit increases and keep prices relatively moderate for the next month or two. GasBuddy operates TallahasseeGasPrices.com and more than 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. are able to reach out to a banker for answers and advice when their schedules permit.
