One commissioner vehemently opposed the move, however, asserting that, while the extra money bene ts the Tallahassee-based operators of the local healthcare campus, it isnt clear whether it helps the citizens of Gadsden County. During the regular meeting Sept. 2, the Gadsden County Commission voted 4-1 to redirect funds the county would otherwise pay directly to Capital Regional Medical Center (CRMC) the operators of the Gadsden County healthcare campus to the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) in order to take advantage of a Medicaid fund-matching program. This is a renewal of an agreement the county has had with AHCA for the past three years. Commissioner Brenda Holt, who represents District 4 commissioner, cast the sole nay vote this year, as she has over the past three. Under the agreement with AHCA, for Medicaid fund-matching program helps pay for indigent care Morris A. Young Breast Cancer Awareness Walk set for Oct. 24 Last year he was a man on a mission: To draw attention to male breast cancer. Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young did this by walking across Gadsden County via U.S. 90, from the bridge over the Apalachicola River in Chattahoochee to the Leon County line on the outskirts of Midway. Along the way that October day, some supporters joined in for part of the route, with very few completing the 34-mile trek. This year the sheriff invites more area groups and individuals to participate in the Gadsden County Sheriffs Of ce Relay for Life teams fundraiser. At a Sept. 3 planning meeting for those interested in supporting the walk, GCSO spokesman Maj. Shawn Wood said there was not a great deal of advance preparation or publicity for last years walk, but Young still drew a crowd. By the time he got to Gretna, ve to 10 grew to about 40, Wood said. This year, teams are asked to walk seven miles, if they are able, and Wood said transportation would be provided at sevenmile intervals. Seven miles is very doable, Wood said, but it is a major commitment. The walk will start at 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24, at the Leon County line at U.S. 90. This is a rain or shine event. There will be refreshment stations along the way serving water and light snacks. The walk is expected to conclude at about 6 p.m. at the Jackson County line. Its a solid 12 to 14 hours of walking, Wood said. Following the walk, there will be a celebration in downC HERI H ARRIS Editor/Manager Two men ended up in jail after law enforcement responded to reports of gun re Sept. 2 in a Quincy neighborhood. According to Gadsden County Sheriffs Of ce arrest reports, Montavious Terrell Perkins, 19, is accused of threatening a man on Pine Cone Street. The man told deputies he was walking on Pine Cone Street to pick up his daughter when Van Lucas McCloud Jr., 28, of Quincy, pointed a handgun in the mans face and then at his head, demanding that the man get on the ground or he would kill him. The man refused, and McCloud reportedly red the gun once on the ground next to the mans feet. McCloud demanded that the man get on his knees again, but the man refused again.

The Rams received the ball rst, but had their opening drive stalled by a clock malfunction with 10:54 left in the opening quarter. The brief stoppage of the game didnt affect the Rams offense, and with 10:29 left in the rst quarter, they reached the Jaguar 14-yard line. East Gadsdens defense bottled up Rutherfords offense inside the red zone, holding them pointless on their opening drive. The Jaguars opening drive was highlighted by two penalties, one of which put them in a 3rd and 11 passing down that resulted in a de ected pass, which was intercepted and returned to East Gadsdens 6 -yard line. Two plays later Rutherford powered the ball into the end zone on a short run play, but a bad snap on the extra point attempt held the lead at 6-0. The bottom half of the rst period was littered with penalties committed by both teams, which stagnated the productivity of both teams. The second quarter began with a Rutherford punt that pinned East Gadsdens offense inside their 10-yard line. The Jaguars rst offensive series of the second quarter ended badly; senior quarterback Jeremy Frison received an early snap on a third down play ,which led to a fumble recovered by a Ram defender for a score. A successful two-point conversion after the Rams second score pushed their lead to 14-0. In spite of several opportunities including a big strip and fumble recovery by Jeremiah Johnson, East Gadsden was unable to score during the rst few minutes of the second quarter. A number of offensive penalties and high throws by Frison led to several third and long plays for the Jaguars during the rst half of the second quarter. Frison scrambled on a 3rd and long play and threw a completion to receiver LaDarien Taylor on the left side of the eld near the 40yard line; Taylor made a swift move inside and outran the Ram defenders into the end zone. East Gadsden was penalized at the end of their score for excessive celebration, but they received their lost yardage back after Rutherford received a penalty for pass interference on the Jaguars two-point conversion attempt. After the penalty, Frison attempted to bolt around the right side of the eld, but the Rams did a good job of setting the edge, and prevented the quarterback from reaching the end zone. The second period ended with an unsuccessful eld goal attempt by the Rams, which left the Jaguars down by a score of 14-6 headed into halftime. The Jaguars were unable to get into an offensive rhythm during the third quarter as Rutherford continued to use their heavy running scheme to pound the ball on offense. East Gadsden turned the ball over again on their 29-yard line with 2:13 left in the third quarter. The Rams capitalized on the turnover with another rushing score on a delayed run with 39 seconds left in the period, which pushed their lead to 21-6 after the extra point attempt. East Gadsden continued to ght through their adversity during the nal period of the game and capped off a drive they carried over from the third period with a rushing score with 11:44 left in the quarter. The Jaguar defense held the Rams scoreless during the fourth quarter but the home team offense was unable to put together another scoring drive. This heavily penalized game came to a close as East Gadsdens offense worked its way into the red zone but was able to score before the time expired. The Jaguars fought hard, but were unable to overcome their mistakes as they lost to the Rams by a nal score of 21-12. East Gadsden will be in action at home again this Friday against the Godby Cougars.

WWW GADCOTIMES COM GADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 3A By MARTY COHEN So last week in a column for the website, I decided to tally up the numbers concerning the volume of games this writer has covered since coming to the University of Florida in 1978, along with how many times weve sat in the Florida Field press box. The total stands at 347 overall and 190 in The Swamp since my \300 rst game at old Tampa Stadium back in 1980, the glorious 41-13 s h e l l a c k i n g of Cal that e f f e c t i v e l y slapped the winless season out of the picture. The reason for bringing this back up is because of the events of last Saturday night, a night of frightful weather that wed never witnessed around these parts on a football Saturday. Weve had some weather delays in the midst of games, at the beginning of games and even at the end of games, mercifully dispensing with the \300 nal eight-plus minutes of the 2007 season opener against Western Kentucky, blunting the Hilltoppers chances for a rally out of a 49-3 de \300 cit. Wed been part of a weather delay on the road at Georgia Tech in 1980, when it rained so hard the water was coming through the numerous cracks in the press box at Grant Field, a creaking old stadium even back then. Wed sat through the 1992 Gator Bowl, where the fog rolled in so thick off the river that it engulfed the stadium to the point where literally, no lie, you could not see the \300 eld from the press box and sections of the stands. Were told Florida beat North Carolina on New Years Eve But wed never quite sat through a storm like the one which hovered over Florida Field last Saturday night, a lightning display that reportedly cited nearly 1,200 strikes in the eight-mile radius around the stadium between 5:00 and just past midnight. We know fans wanted to see more electricity on the \300 eld from the Gators this season, but we could have done without the seven hours of it above the stadium. And the nice little knee-deep mud quagmire my car sat in at Flavet Field wasnt all that necessary either (somehow stuck in the swamps of Gainesville isnt as romantic as being stuck in the mud in the swamps of Jersey). And in an earlier Express column a few weeks back, we offered the notion that after the misfortune of last season (which followed the good vibes of 2012), Gator head coach Will Muschamp and his team were due for some positive bounces from the football gods.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT Jesus Wilson traveled to Dallas as part of the team. He dressed out and warmed up as part of the team. But once Florida State kicked off its season against Oklahoma State last week, Wilson stayed glued to the sideline, punishment for his involvement with a stolen scooter earlier this summer. Having to sit and watch while his teammates competed, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said, can hurt worse than being home. Coach didnt sit me out for the worse, Wilson said. He sat me out for the better. He wants whats best for me and I learned from that. And it made Wilsons 2014 debut just a little bit sweeter. Chomping at the bit to get back into action, Wilson checked into the game later into the \300 rst quarter and immediately made an impact. Facing a second down at The Citadels 12-yard line, quarterback Jameis Winston receiver a shotgun snap, looked to his right and connected with Wilson on a short swing pass. Wilson, affectionately nicknamed Bobo, did the rest, sprinting past The Citadels defense and into the end zone for a touchdown. I couldnt believe it, Wilson said. I overcame a lot of adversity and it just felt great being back out there with my brothers and catching a touchdown pass from Jameis. He told me he was going to get me one. Wilson \300 nished the day with 35 yards on three catches and added an 18-yard punt return. (He fumbled on the return but a teammate recovered it.) Even though he didnt play, Wilson didnt miss any practice time during his suspension, which allowed his chemistry with Winston and his fellow receivers to \301 ourish. Thats good news for an FSU passing attack that looked a little uneven in its inaugural outing. The Seminoles were much more balanced against The Citadel. Winston completed 22 of 27 passes after starting 19 for 20 and, even better, no one caught more than \300 ve passes. Wilson might not have contributed to all of that. But his presence certainly didnt hurt. (Wilson is) such a dynamic player, Winston said. Its good to have a guy like him and Kermit (Whit \300 eld) out on the \300 eld. You can give them the ball, and they can make something happen. We were very glad to have him back. Wilson said he likes to play fast and aggressively, which he believes can open up both the passing and running attacks. And, he hopes, hell stand to bene \300 t when opposing defenses focus all their efforts on slowing down star senior Rashad Greene. For now, though, Wilson is just thankful to be back on the \300 eld. He says hes gained wisdom from his mistake. Its great to be back with the team, Wilson said. Im very blessed. I just want to thank God, my coaches, my family and my team for supporting me through everything. Im happy to be back out there. What I did was wrong and I learned from it. Ive just got to make better decisions.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, I was sitting in the publishers of ce at the Citrus County Chronicle prepared to talk about how to cover two community orchestras whose leaders really didnt like one another. As we started this discussion, we watched on TV as the second plane hit the Twin Towers, and the world changed. My boss had the sense to immediately send me back to the newsroom because all of a sudden it didnt matter that two community orchestras didnt really get along. After the Twin Towers fell, the assistant editor suggested the Chronicle do something it had never done before put out an early edition. After a short planning meeting, reporters were dispatched to get stories and le them in about an hour and a half, from walking out the doors to completing the last sentence by noon. At about 3 p.m. there were Chronicle employees at all the major intersections handing out the special edition of the paper to eager readers. I still cant really wrap my mind around the magnitude of the tragedy that day and the intentional evil behind it. But I remain inspired by the bravery of rstresponders, the sense of unity that persisted nationwide long after Sept. 11, and from my experience that day on the job, I learned we could accomplish tremendous things if we work together. Thirteen years later, I remain convinced we can either focus on what divides us or what unites us, building monuments to bad days and calling them insurmountable obstacles, or using them as stepping stones on the way to a better future. And they called it puppy love was being sung in the background as Judy and I were playing our early morning game of gin rummy. Oh, I guess theyll never know how a young heart really feels and why I love her so. Paul Anka sang so many songs that could take me back to my teenage years when puppy love was so prevalent. Whether he was singing Puppy Love or See You in September or Put Your Head on My Shoulder, he could send me into another world, a world of bliss and enchantment because my love life was going well at the time or a world of intense longing and pining because of a recent lost love. Like many other teenagers of the s, we held on dearly to our dreams and romantic experiences. There was a song for every occasion. Listening to Puppy Love as a teen made me aware that it didnt matter that adult or teachers made fun of the fact that so many of us going steady would outgrow our strong romantic feelings for one another or that we would meet someone else down the road and probably marry that person. Tears on My Pillow by Little Anthony and the Imperials was an enormous hit of that era. You dont remember me, but I remember you. Twas not so long ago, you broke my heart in two. Tears on my pillow, pain in my heart caused by you.... There were a few times I went to bed and cried onto my pillow. I know I wasnt alone. Why Do Fools Fall in Love? was another smash hit by Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers. Why do fools fall in love? Why do birds sing so gay and lovers await the break of day? Why do fools fall in love? How many times did my friends and me ask ourselves that very question? Ricky Nelson was so great at singing songs to soothe our romantic young souls. I hear him on the radio today more than any other singing star of the s. A Teen-agers Romance was so welcomed whenever it played over the air waves. Keep saying you love me and theyll look upon a teen-agers romance that goes on and on. The words reassured us that no matter what our romantic problems might be at the time, our love would go and on, words so many of us needed to hear when so young and insecure. I had been told by several of my classmates that I looked like Ricky. I spent much time in front of the mirror singing along with him to his songs. I had convinced myself I also sounded like him whenever I sang one of his songs. So many of our lives were vicarious in those days. My parents were very strict; I wasnt allowed to join my friends in their adventures outside of my home very often. I missed so many dances and record hops where I could have A4 G ADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 WWW GADCOTIMES COM Well, that might be the last time he wears a tan suit in public. President Barack Obama, who had called a news conference to discuss incredibly weighty questions about American military reaction to out-of-control Islamic State militants, wore a lightweight, tan summer suit. He sure regretted it. Of all the vital and controversial issues he discussed, it was the reaction to the tan suit that exploded across social media, not the debate over whether to bomb the murderous extremists sweeping Iraq from across the border in Syria and not his admission that the arduous process of forming a regional response is not complete. The only clamor he caused with that was his statement We dont have a strategy yet. Predictably, the opposition jumped all over that one. It just con rmed what weve been talking about really for almost two years, huffed the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Mike Rogers, There has been no real strategy. Granted, POTUS left himself wide open to that kind of snark with his plain talk, and he also might wish that hed used other words. The ill tting suitA picture of you standing in front of your dirty car doesnt mean that your car has always been and always will be dirty or that its dirty because of some personal failure of yours. Nor does it mean youre the only person around whose vehicle may become less than sparkling. But that is the impression many have of people living in poverty in the U.S. because of the oft-cited 15 percent gure: that the minority of people with no to little money who are captured in a yearly government income and poverty report are the same people who show up in that report every year they are Americas poor. As Columbia University Social Work Professor Irwin Gar nkel has said, One of the biggest myths about poverty in the United States is that a relatively small segment of the population is poor, and that this represents a more or less permanent underclass. Lets be clear poverty, especially if youre born into it, can be dif cult to escape, as a new lm, Rich Hill, documents. Stephen Pimpare, poverty expert, discusses the lm at TalkPoverty.org: Many viewers and critics will see much of what is portrayed in the lm as culture, but its actually structure: the product of decades of disinvestment from communities like (Rich Hill, Mo.), which leaves behind depressed, isolated, local economies with no jobs, a dwindling tax base, and nothing to attract business or new residents; aging, dilapidated housing stock; underfunded, inferior schools; little or no access to health care and other social services; and few people around who arent as poor as you are. In other words, poverty is less about particular people than about particular places. Which helps explain why the odds of escaping poverty in the U.S. (i.e. economic mobility) havent changed in 20 years. Pimpare says generational poverty the popular idea of a xed but small class of people who are born poor, die poor and pass on poverty to their children like a genetic trait is the exception, not the rule. If we stop thinking about poverty as linked to people but instead to the places and circumstances we live in, we can recognize a hard truth: The actual portion of Americans who experience poverty isnt 15 percent but more than 50 percent. Will the real poverty rate please stand up? The standard gure of 15 percent, based on an annual federal government census, is now being recognized as only a snapshot of a moment in time and not an accurate measure of the full extent of poverty in America. More than 40 percent of Americans between the ages of 25 and 60 will be poor for at least a year. Over the same period, more than half will be poor or nearly poor, with income at 150 percent of the poverty line, or about $27,000 annually for a family of three. So poverty in the U.S. is, in fact, a much larger problem than we think it is, and its one that most Americans will face. Poverty is seeping into more places in this country places it didnt exist before, as seen in the growing rate of child hunger in wealthy suburbs. Why? Income inequality. Its harder to kick a eld goal when you keep getting moved back up the eld. Its harder to move out of poverty into wealth when that distance is growing by leaps and bounds. Its basic math.

First of all, the performances and production were stunningly good, and anybody that had anything to do with the show should be proud. But, more than that, the experience itself was transporting. Here, for an afternoon, was everything that is good about America. The audience was packed. It was young and old, black and white, an outpouring of a community supporting their young performers in their endeavors for greatness. This is what Americans do. Positive, productive, loving, kind, optimistic. As individual citizens, we can keep it that way. Ignore the negativity that seems to pour forth during every campaign season and on every airwave as the forces of power and privilege and greed unleash hundreds of millions of dollars to keep their power and privilege. Vote with your dollars. Support your local community. Go spend your money on local artists, musicians and playhouses. Eat at mom and pop restaurants and buy food from local farms. As the holidays get closer, buy local products for presents. Whatever your consumer needs, see if they cant be lled locally. It is an act of bravery to run your own business, because a lot of the deck is stacked against you. Support them. Support each other. A sense of community, where all men and women are created equal, no matter what they look like or how much they own, is a wonderful feeling and is all too absent in the world today. It is the promise of America. Create it daily. Support your neighbor. Buy local. Buy American.

socialized and been with my girlfriend. I was also overly possessive in my relationships with my girl friends. I wasnt aware of that at the time. I guess I was just so hungry for love and companionship I did drive most of my girlfriends away. Party Doll by Buddy Knox was a great favorite of mine at that time as it was at a party I met the teenage love of my life, Bonnie. We had attended a birthday party for her cousin and my friend, Butch Smith. Eighteen miles would separate us. My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean was almost a reality as we rarely saw one another. Ill never forget a night that the great king of rock and roll, Alan Freed of WINS 1010, New York City played How I Love You for us by Chuck Alaimo. One of Bonnies girlfriends had sent in a dedication request for us. Of course, Bonnie and I both were listening to WINS that night and heard it. We had just had a teenage quarrel; hearing the song helped keep our love secure for a few more months. How about you, readers, does hearing an old love song from the past bring back pleasant memories of loves from yesteryear? By the way, I thought youd be interested to know that I wrote this column on the back side of some ads while waiting for service at my local car dealership. Do you remember the rattle that wed been experiencing for a couple of years? A district troubleshooter for the car manufacturer was in town for a day. After much investigation he decided I needed that brake job I thought I might have needed. After a four-hour wait and a new brake job, the rattle is gone! I am really grateful to the owner of the dealership and the trouble-shooter from Atlanta. God bless you. 6A GADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 WWW GADCOTIMES COM TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Health recently announced the launch of the Florida Health Cleans Up! project in support of the Florida Department of Transportations (FDOT) roadside litter prevention media campaign released earlier this year, Drive it home Keep Our Paradise Litter Free. More than 1,000 Department of Health employees around the state have formed 71 teams to participate regularly in a variety of clean-up activities. At least twice a year, almost 120 miles will be swept by these teams, including more than 17 miles of state highway, 25 miles of city streets, 12 miles of trails, 178 acres of parks, and 34 miles of shoreline. Florida Health Cleans Up! emphasizes that clean spaces matter for healthy living, said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. As we restore some of Floridas wonderful highways, streets, trails, parks, and shorelines, this project will put the spotlight on the importance of healthy choices to prevent trash in the rst place. We are excited to partner with the Florida Department of Health for Florida Health Cleans Up!, said FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad. This outstanding initiative encourages healthy physical activity while assisting the FDOT with reducing litter and preserving the natural environment along Floridas roadsides. Florida Health Cleans Up! is a venture of Healthiest Weight Florida, a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not-forpro t organizations, businesses and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living. The departments goal is to encourage physical activity and walking while emphasizing how small choices people make can affect their health and environment. More information about Healthiest Weight Florida and Florida Health Cleans Up! is available at www.HealthiestWeightFL.com.

Theres simply no way we can have conditions that allow the top 10 percent of Americans to pocket ever-increasing amounts now 77 percent of the nations income, leaving the other 90 percent of people with the 23 percent of income that remains without growing economic insecurity in the rest of the nation. The x? As one TalkPoverty Blog reader put it: We need more people who are facing poverty in America to stand up and express themselves, to put a real human face (yes, Im your neighbor) on this politically & socially abstract issue. Poverty is not a sickness that strikes an isolated minority of Americans but is evidence of a diseased nation whose symptoms a majority of Americans experience. Fostering awareness of this truth (and retiring the insuf cient 15 percent data point) would probably make it easier for those who are struggling to stand up and express themselves, and would likely lend some much-needed urgency and clarity to efforts to x the policies that create poverty and economic inequality, while giving our leaders a larger mandate to do so. We should never say the word poverty without the words inequality and injustice being far behind. People become poor not by personal failing but because the system is engineered to push them down and keep them down.

FRANKEN Continued from Page 4A WILLIS Continued from Page 4A But lets hope not. It was refreshing to hear such candor instead of the usual double-talk we get from all sides. The fact is that determining how all the pieces t is just the rst step. Next hell have to sweet talk skittish allies before there is any hope that the Islamic State forces can be beaten back as they roll over the entire region pursuing their fervent dream of a harsh caliphate ruled by their brutal fanatics. Hell need to start by dealing with the antagonisms of the other nations in the region, with their varying degrees of culpability. How can they be rallied around a single agenda, with a coordinated armed forces and intelligence response? What about Syria? Do we ignore the cruel pariah leader Bashar al-Assad, with his sophisticated defense system, who has warned against air attacks on his turf without permission? Do the United States and allies suddenly deal with the same man they have been trying to oust because of his vicious attacks against his citizens while trying to squash a rebellion, because we now have a common enemy? And what about dealing with a Congress thats been out of town? These are not easy questions, and a strategy takes time, much to the frustration of the do something even if its wrong crowd. That re exive approach is usually what gets us into these convoluted messes in the rst place. We live in a Twitterized environment that demands immediate answers even when there are none. Unfortunately, there is tremendous pressure on our leaders to deal with these tangled knots with one pull of a string. More often than not, that just tightens things up more. Waiting to sort things out has become agony to a society that expects instant grati cation. President Obama is constantly dealing with a perception that hes indecisive, even when rash action would be harmful. One decision he does need to make right away is to replace his wardrobe consultants, or if he doesnt have any, get some. Lets face it, that suit really didnt, uh, suit the occasion.

PEACE Continued from Page 4A Spinning a yarn Florida departments of health, transportation team up to clean up Environmentalists are concerned about the impact of tar sands oil development in Canadas Boreal forest and the impact it might have on wildlife, including many species of birds. Pictured the Canada Warbler, one of many birds that depend upon the region. Photo by Wiliam H. Maloros Dear EarthTalk: How is it that migrating birds are being negatively affected by oil extraction in Canadas Boreal forest? Jennifer Chase, Fort Lauderdale Each year tens of million of migratory birds overwinter in the Canadian Boreal forest, a vast tract of mostly uninhabited coniferous woodlands and wetlands stretching from Newfoundland to the Yukon. The area makes up some 60 percent of Canadas total land mass, and serves as the winter home for more than half of Americas avian population. But environmentalists are worried about the impact of increasing tar sands oil development there and the impact it might have on wildlife populations continent-wide. Tar sands are a mixture of sand, clay, water and a dense and viscous tar-like form of petroleum called bitumen. The bitumen is extracted from the tar sands mixture and eventually re ned into transportation fuel like gasoline. The extraction process is especially carbonintensive and generates some of the dirtiest fuel around, but its abundance makes it affordable as long as industry keeps turning up new sources. A recently released report by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) concluded that almost half of the 292 different migratory bird species that overwinter in Canadas Boreal forest as many as 75 million birds are threatened by future tar sands development. Further, they say, bird losses in the hundreds of thousands have already taken place as a result of overzealous and under-regulated oil development there to date. The direct and indirect impacts to birds from tar sands development are immense, states the report. Waterfowl and shorebirds land in tailings ponds that they mistake for natural water bodies and become oiled with waste bitumen and toxic elements. The result can be birds drowning, dying from hypothermia or otherwise suffering from the ingestion of toxins. Toxins from the tailings ponds and other pollutants from tar sands operations leak millions of gallons of toxic liquid waste into wetlands and forests each day, further contaminating habitat, the groups add. Tar sands development also contributes disproportionately to climate change. U.S. State Department analysis shows that tar sands oil is 20 percent more carbon pollution intensive than conventional oil on a well-to-wheel basis.

FAMILY FEATURES Q uite possibly the ultimate steak, the T-bone embodies the rich blend of varied beef flavors that steak lovers crave, from tender and mild to bold and beefy. On one side of the T-bone is the filet mignon. French for dainty fillet, the filet mignon is considered the most tender cut, with a mild beef flavor. On the other side of the T-bone is the strip loin or New York strip, a firm, robust steak that is naturally marbled and offers a bold taste. The bone itself also provides additional flavor in the cooking process. With this pairing of tastes, it is no surprise that the T-bone is considered to be the best of both worlds by steak connoisseurs. For more steak recipes, visit www.OmahaSteaks.com. Thick Steak, Bone-in Steak and Chop Cooking ChartCooking times are in minutes and based on fully-thawed steaks. Gas grill: Preheat grill to high, reduce to medium heat prior to cooking. Charcoal grill: Sear over red hot coals, finish over indirect heat. Ten Tips for Perfect Grilling 1.Clean and preheat your grill on high. 2.Lightly oil everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3.Season your food before grilling. 4.Sear the outside of steaks when grilling. This really helps with the flavor and juiciness. 5.Use tongs or a spatula to turn your meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat. 6.Cover your grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled flavor and will help prevent flare-ups. 7.Keep a spray bottle with water handy to douse any unexpected flare-ups. 8.Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked product. 9.Place your cooked product on a clean plate. Never place cooked product on the plate you used to transport the raw product to the grill without thoroughly washing it first. 10.Allow your foods to rest for 5 minutes between cooking and eating. This will help them retain moisture when you cut into them.

WALK Continued from Page 1A engineer a solution, Midway City Manager Dot Inman-Johnson said. According to Johnson, the city will ask the state for more money to solve the problem once they gure out the cause. Council members said citizens of Midway have complained of a foul smell coming from their yards and also mentioned the smell is present in the citys re station. Council Member Charles Willis of District 4 said the problem has existed for at least eight years and is a potential health hazard for Midway citizens. He also spoke of how the problem is nancially affecting Midway citizens because when the sewage system gets clogged up, some citizens have paid out of their own pockets to x the problem when it affects their homes. The meeting began with a medal presentation for Fire Chief Kent Pridemore, who was awarded the Courage Medal for entering a burning home and extinguishing the re on his own. Later in the meeting, Willis addressed rumors that he had pocketed money from a July 4 event he organized for the city. He proclaimed his innocence and, as evidence, detailed how he spent the money in question. In other business: Q The Springer family brought a complaint to the city about loud music. Mr. Springer said music rattles his home and is played at unbearable levels throughout the day and night, well past midnight. Midway Police Chief Jerome Turner said though those responsible for the music have been arrested in the past, there is no ordinance that can control the issue so there isnt much that the police can do to enforce the issue. Council members unanimously passed a motion to write and establish an ordinance. Q The city will have an auction for towed vehicles starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20.

The second man told deputies that McCloud and his relative were having a disagreement because the man told McCloud he was not going to pay for some drugs McCloud had allegedly given him. Also arrested in this incident was Montavious Terrell Perkins, 19, of Quincy. Perkins is accused of pulling a handgun on a woman and shooting toward her Pine Cone Street House. Perkins allegedly pointed the gun at the woman and threatened to kill her if she came into the road. Law enforcement recovered three .45 caliber spent shell casings from the Pine Cone Street scene. No witnesses would cooperate and give a written or verbal statement other than the woman, the man and his relative, according to the arrest report. McCloud is charged with crimes against a person that could cause death, a rst-degree felony; three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, a third-degree felony; ring a weapon in public or on residential property, a rst-degree misdemeanor; ring weapon/discharging a rearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony; and 52 counts of distribution of hallucinogens, a seconddegree felony. A criminal history check revealed that McCloud ias a convicted felon and he was released on bond in July from the Liberty County Jail in Bristol. Deputies located McCloud in his vehicle and arrested him without incident. Perkins is charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, a thirddegree felony; and ring a weapon in public or on residential property, a rst-degree misdemeanor. SHOTSContinued from Page 1A every dollar Gadsden County redirects to AHCA, Medicaid will pay CRMC $2.47, an increase from years past. This year, the county agreed to send the agency the maximum amount allowable by law, $407,349. Medicaid will in turn pay CRMC this amount plus its own matching contribution of $598,803 for a total of $1,006,152.03. Under the current lease, Gadsden County is obligated to pay CRMC $460,000 annually to help defray the cost of care to the countys poor. This money comes from half-cent sales tax revenue. Assistant Gadsden County Attorney Mike Glazer told commissioners Tuesday that, while the program increases the bene t to CRMC, it does so with zero scal impact on the county, as its contribution to CRMC stays the same regardless of its participation in the program. According to the agreement between Gadsden County and AHCA signed by commissioners Tuesday as part of the deal, funds paid to CRMC through the program will only be used to increase the provision of health services for the Medicaid, uninsured, and underinsured people of Gadsden County and the State of Florida at large. Holt told fellow commissioners Tuesday she is not convinced any of the additional funds paid to CRMC by Medicaid actually bene t Gadsden County. I keep saying this every year. They (CRMC) have not agreed to show where that money comes back to Gadsden County. To show as I said before, last year when this money comes back as a match, how much of those dollars are coming back to Gadsden County? Theres just no accountability in it, she said. District 1 Commissioner and Chairman Eric Hinson echoed Holts concerns, though he ultimately voted in favor of the agreement. We understand that the matching funds are going to be used for Tallahassee residents, too; not just Gadsden County residents, right? Its also going to be used a little for Jefferson County, Thomasville, Ga., whoever shows up at Capital Regional hospitals that funding is going to be used for that. Its not to bene t Gadsden County citizens; its just to bene t Capital Regional hospital. So, I guess, since were going to provide the funding anyway, is there any way where we can work out a deal where we can get some of that money (matching funds) back, Holt asked. Glazer responded the money can only be paid to the Medicaid provider CRMC in this case through the AHCA deal. For this particular program, Im afraid that these matching dollars, would just simply not get paid to anybody if this contract is not approved. Capital Regional will still get the money that its owed through the half-cent sales tax, but, unfortunately, under this particular program, the match cant go any place else, Glazer told commissioners, adding Gadsden County clearly bene ts, regardless of where speci c funds are allocated. Since we were here last year, you now have an outpatient clinic for the rst time in many, many years. Specialists are coming to Gadsden County, and that is part of the return that has come to the county as a result of working with Capital Regional. I cant tell you its precisely from these dollars, but I know (the money bene ts Gadsden County). District 3 Commissioner Gene Morgan said while the matching funds are not being paid directly to Gadsden County, that is no reason to deprive CRMC of them. Why would we not want the bene t of the matching funds to go to who were partnering with, so they have the opportunity to keep investing new dollars in Gadsden County to improve our services, he asked commissioners, adding the history of Gadsden Countys healthcare services has been full of nancial risk and bankruptcies for service providers. District 2 Commissioner Douglas Croley told commissioners he felt the issue was making sure the matching funds were reinvested in Gadsden County, rather than staying in CRMC coffers. On that note, Glazer invited CRMC Chief Financial Of cer Ronnie Midgett to address the commissioners. Last year, Capital Regional treated over 27,000 residents of Gadsden County; of that, 58 percent were either Medicaid or completely unfunded at a cost of over $4.5 million to Capital Regional. So to answer your question: This money does go back to Gadsden County to help offset the losses, Midgett told commissioners. My understanding is this program was authored during a time of severe cuts to Medicaid funding. This is an opportunity for counties such as yourself to help shore up some of the Medicaid funding. Before returning to his seat in the commission chamber audience, Midgett told commissioners the Gadsden ER has had 77,000 visits since opening a few years ago, and several specialists in podiatry, obstetrics/gynecology, general surgery and more now operate out of the Gadsden campus. Near the end of discussion on the matter, Hinson asserted the importance of asking the kinds of tough questions posed by commissioners Tuesday night.

10A GADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 WWW GADCOTIMES COM Photos courtesy of Getty ImagesStep1:VerifyYourHomeownersInsurance CoversStormDamageNearly all homeowners carry some form of insurance on their home, as required by their mortgage lender. But policies can vary, and the after math of a powerful storm is no time to find out youre underinsured. To ensure your homeowners policy adequately covers your needs, take time to review the policy every year at renewal time, and any time you make any significant improvements to your home. Check that the coverage amount for your main residence accurately reflects the finished square footage of your home, including any upgrades or changes such as a newly renovated bathroom or expanded deck struc ture. Also confirm that the replacement cost your homeowners insur ance agent has determined is consistent with what you would expect to pay to rebuild your home. In addition, take time to understand any exclusions, especially those for weather-related incidents. For example, many homeowners insur ance policies do not automatically include flood protection. Finally, take time to thoroughly document your personal possessions with video or still images and record their value. Store the documen tation in a safe place, such as a safety deposit box or remote-access electronic file, that you will be able to access in the event of an emer gency. Not only will this help expedite your claim if you need to replace items, but youll have a list ready when you face the daunting task of replacing your belongings. KeepUponHomeMaintenanceStepping outside after a significant storm is no time to remember that you forgot to trim the tree or secure a loose section of fencing. Making time to provide ongoing home maintenance for exterior features of your home, such as landscaping, decking, siding, roofing and shutters, will ensure they are in good function when bad weather strikes. While little can be done to prevent damage from high-impact storms, routinely checking that everything is in good repair will minimize the chances of preventable destruction. As you assess your home and yard, ask yourself: Are the trees and shrubs properly trimmed and set far enough away from structures that they are unlikely to topple in high winds? Are shutters affixed securely to the house? Are there any cracked or otherwise weakened windows that should be replaced to prevent shattering during a storm?PrepareforBackupPower DuringanOutageLoss of power is one of the most common occurrences in severe weather. And the financial impact of outage-related expenses (e.g. spoiled food replacement, supply purchases or home repair) can add up quickly. Storm-related power loss can be costly for a family, said Greg Inwood, vice president for Briggs & Stratton Standby Power. An unexpected power loss can result in a number of inconveniences if the outage requires special arrangements such as meals out and overnight hotel stays. The easiest way to prepare for a weather-related power outage is by installing a standby generator in advance of the storm season. Fortunately, attaining the safety and comfort provided by a standby generator during a storm event has become more reasonable thanks to emerging technology that has made generators smaller, smarter and, therefore, more affordable. In the past, having a generator was cost-prohibitive for many house holds, said Amanda Grandy, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Standby Power, which is the exclusive licensee of GE Generator Systems. Today, technology has advanced to make owning a standby generator far more affordable for the average family. Improved technology features such as GEs Symphony II power management system, which manages a homes power demands auto matically and electronically during an outage, allow more of a homes lights and appliances up to two AC units to be powered with a smaller standby generator. A home that would typically need a larger 20 kW home generator to power all of the homes power demands could now be powered with GEs 10 kW unit paired with Symphony II technology. The smaller, more affordable 10 kW home generators also boast the smallest footprint on the market, making it ideal for homes with tight lot lines. Learn more about the home standby generators available to home owners at www.gegenerators.com. Common Types of Backup Generators A power outage is a common result of weather-related emergencies, but its also one of the easiest to correct by using a generator. There are two common generator types: portable generators and standby generators. A portable generator is an immediate but temporary solution. Typically powered by gasoline, it is lower in cost and doesnt require installation time, but it can only power a few items for a few hours. A standby generator is an automatic, per manent backup power solution. It requires professional installation outside the home. It is powered by natural gas or liquid pro pane and turns on automatically during a utility power outage to keep a homes lights, furnace, AC units and other appliances on while the power is out. Having an emergency preparedness kit of items that your household may need in an emergency situation is critical. Basic utilities such as electricity, gas, water, sewage and phone service may be unavailable after a storm strikes, so the kit should contain food, water, any necessary medications, lighting and backup battery supplies. FAMILY FEATURES P reparing for an unexpected emergency, especially one brought on by severe weather, is one of the most important ways you can protect your home and family. Proactively addressing storm-related issues ranging from property damage to power outages can minimize a potentially disastrous situation.Emergency Preparedness Kit

After about three years on the job, Quincy Police Chief Walter McNeil has submitted his resignation and announced his intention to seek other opportunities. McNeil told the Times he is co-chair for Common Ground, the political action committee for George Sheltons bid for attorney general. McNeil said he is also a surrogate for Charlie Crist. As we move around the state, I will sometimes speak if he cant make an engagement, that sort of thing. After the campaigns, Mcneil said he would decide whether to pursue other opportunities in the greater Gadsden County/Leon County area, perhaps going into politics or politics and law enforcement. McNeil said his biggest accomplishments as Quincys chief of police center around enhancing QPDs focus on community policing and the way the departments application of community policing has grown more diverse. I dont think we had any neighborhood associations when I got there, McNeil said. We built those and worked on building better relationships with all segments in Quincy. Part of community policing is recognizing that not all social problems can be solved by making an arrest. McNeil said. Though circumstances and law often require an arrest, McNeil said police follow-up with both victims and perpetrators can help foster more positive outcomes. He said QPD also has a good focus on former inmates who are reentering the community, striving to keep in touch and nd ways to encourage them to stay out of trouble and out of jail. Another step forward for QPD under McNeils leadership was to move out of the old QPD headquarters and into the facility also occupied by the sheriffs of ce. Thats been a tremendous move and an asset for us to have those facilities, McNeil said. I think its one example for the entire state and perhaps even the country for us to have those facilities and a police department and sheriffs department co-located in the same building. He said sharing space with the sheriffs of ce was also a very effective way of sharing information and preventing crime. Overall, he said he believes QPD has done a good job of keeping the crime rate down, and enhancing the communitys respect for Quincys police force. I think thats one of the things Im excited about as the department goes forward in the future, McNeil said.

Citizens on Patrol volunteers are on the back row in white shirts and ties. Keeping Independent Seniors Safe volunteers are mostly in purple shirts. Photo by Cheri Harris Somehow the idea of having Gadsden County Sheriffs Office volunteers phone elderly residents to check on their wellbeing morphed from being part of preparations for Tropical Storm Faye in 2006 into a regular program serving Gadsdens seniors. Now the Keeping Independent Seniors Safe Program serves more than 80 senior citizens. The only requirement for the free program is that they be older than 60 years old. During an event last week highlighting the K.I.S.S. program and the Citizens on Patrol who do well-being checks when needed, volunteer Geraldine Holt said the seniors they call look forward to hearing from the volunteers, sometimes re-arranging appointments and errands to be sure to be by the phone. They look forward to it, and we do too, she said. Sheriff Morris Young said, We do a good job of checking on our seniors. Because many seniors are also victims of crime, Young said the program encouraged some seniors to seek help when they need it. The program wouldnt be what it is without our volunteers, Young said. The program offers volunteer opportunities for K.I.S.S. volunteers staffing the phones to make the wellbeing check calls on Mondays and Thursdays. To build rapport with participants, the sheriffs office makes home visits once a month. Citizens on Patrol wear uniforms and drive designated vehicles. Young told the volunteers and others gathered Sept. 4 for the event, Gadsden County is fortunate to have people like this to come in and give their time and take care of those people, he said. It means a lot to me. For information about becoming a volunteer or participating in the programm, call 627-9233 or 875-8833. All volunteers are subject to a crimial background check.

Environmentalists would like to see U.S. lawmakers deny permits for the transport of Canadian Boreal tar sands oilmost of which is extracted in land-locked regionsthrough the U.S. in hopes of making future tar sands projects there too expensive to be worthwhile. Saying no to tar sands is a critical pillar in an effective strategy to protect wildlife from carbon pollution, says NWF. Furthermore, given Americans growing desire to get away from costly and polluting foreign oil, it makes sense to pass on adding dirty tar sands oil to the mix. But it remains to be seen if the Obama administration will allow construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline to transport the oil from Canada through the U.S. The welfare of millions of birdsand, indeed, our energy futureis at stake.

Hattie Harper, Pastor.CHURCH Continued from Page 13A I remember the rst time one of my children got lost. She was maybe two and we were in a department store when I blinked or sneezed, and in that nanosecond when my eyes were closed, she disappeared. She was only gone for a few minutes, which was long enough for me to imagine the worst. So, I did what all mothers who think their kids are lost do, I panicked. But she wasnt lost. She had ducked underneath a rack of clothes to hide from me. Im sure I scared her when I nally found her, crying and squishing her in a huge, tight hug, so relieved to have her safely in my arms. I may have even vowed right then and there that I would hold her hand until the day I died, never let her out of my sight, never let her cross the street alone or do anything ever without my guidance and assistance. Because, as every mother knows, no one can keep a child safer than a mom can. Its been rumored that God can, but the jury is still out on that. I jest, but not really. The hardest thing for a parent is to stand by helplessly while a child is hurt or lost. I remember when my granddaughter was sliding on pillows on the hardwood oor with her friends at her rst-ever sleepover party and she hit the oor mouth rst and broke her front teeth. The party ended abruptly as my daughter rushed her daughter to the emergency dentist, my granddaughter crying harder because the party was over than because her mouth hurt. My daughter hurt for her daughter as I hurt for mine. No matter how old they are, your babies are still your babies. Its true what they say, A mother is only as happy as her saddest child. Their pain is your pain. The gospel writer Mark tells of a desperate mother who sought out Jesus on behalf of her demon-possessed child. The woman was a Canaanite, an enemy of Israel, but she Nancy Kennedy GRACE NOTES Bringing lost lambs home See GRACE /Page 16A

Determination and desperation drove her to seek Jesus as she made her way through the crowds that pressed in around him. Through the dust and through her tears, ignoring the scorn from the people, she cried out, Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly! (Mark 7:25). Like the Canaanite woman, at times I, too, have cried out for mercy on behalf of my children. Even now that they are adults, especially now that they are adults and I cant carry them on my hip to keep them from heartache and danger, I still beg God for mercy when they hurt or are in trouble. The thing Im learning about God is this: He doesnt always take away our pain or our childrens pain right when we ask him to, and that makes it hard to trust him. Ive had many conversations with the Almighty when I have at-out told him he was mean and that if he would step aside I would make my kids boo-boos go away. (He hasnt stepped aside yet.) But then I remember that Jesus calls himself the Good Shepherd who leaves his ock of 99 sheep grazing in the pasture just to go and rescue the one little lamb that wandered off and is stuck somewhere in the brambles and stickers, bleating in pain. That little lamb, some mother sheeps offspring, lost and alone, crying to be rescued, scared and not fully realizing how it wandered so far and now cant nd its way back, that little lamb is precious enough to the shepherd for him to go and rescue it. However, as the shepherd is on his way, bringing mercy and grace, hope and healing, joy and wholeness with him, ready and willing and oh so able to bind up the little lambs wounds even the ones that are selfin icted and give her a song to sing, the little lamb still cries, because hes not there yet. Sometimes it looks like the shepherd doesnt care and might not come, but the shepherd always comes for one of his own. The shepherd sacri ces his life for his lambs. He always comes for his own. His own never stay lost. That is our great hope. Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

GRACE Continued from Page 15 GAINESVILLE With the start of another school year, a University of Florida expert warns of a head-scratching problem lice. September is Head Lice Prevention Month, and Rebecca Baldwin, a University of Florida entomology assistant professor, says opportunities abound for head lice to spread from person to person, but parents and children can do plenty to prevent or get rid of the bugs. Schools check for head lice check when students return in the fall, said Baldwin, a faculty member with UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Over the summer, many children attend camp, where they share equipment or have sleepovers at which there is head-to-head contact. Children who have picked up lice at summer camp or from sleepovers will begin exhibiting symptoms of an infestation, which include headand neckscratching, nits on the hair shafts and seeing live lice. Head lice are speci c to humans, so they cannot be picked up from, or transmitted, to pets. They dont jump or y, but can crawl. In fact, their legs are equipped with small claws that grasp onto hair shafts, Baldwin said. They can release their grip and fall to grasp another hair. This is why girls with long hair are more susceptible. They can also hitch a ride on caps, headphones or batting helmets, but they most commonly are transmitted through head-to-head contact, she said. The rst sign of head lice is usually noticing the eggs that are glued to the hair shaft. We call those eggs nits. That is where the term nitpicker comes from. Parents should inspect scalps and hair regularly to identify a head lice infestation before it spreads, she said. Hair should be inspected in sections and can be twisted and pinned out of the way once a section is complete. If one member of a family has head lice, all immediate family members and close friends should be inspected. To inspect, nd an area with a bright or natural light. When you part the hair, the live lice will crawl away from the light, so you can look for that movement and comb out the louse. Lice can only live about 24 hours without a human host, so there is no need to make a pesticide application to the home, classroom, or environment.

WWW GADCOTIMES COM GADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 19AARIES (March 21 to April 19) Changing your mind doesnt come easily for Lambs, who place a high value on commitment. But new facts could emerge that might persuade you to rethink your situation. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time to put that fine Bovines eye for beauty to work in redecorating your home or workplace. And dont forget to indulge yourself in some personal time as well. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your sense of loyalty to someone who asks for your help is commendable. But make sure there are no information gaps that should be filled in before you move too far too quickly. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont let difficult people raise the Crabs ire levels this week. Avoid them if you can. If not, resist telling them off, even if you think they deserve it. Things improve by weeks end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your suspicions about a colleague might be on the mark. But you also could be misreading the signals you believe youre getting. Do some discreet checking before jumping to conclusions. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Take some time out from your many tasks and see if someone might be trying to reach out to you. You could be surprised to learn who it is and why you might want to reciprocate. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You still might want to do more investigating before taking on a new commitment. Later would not be the time to try to fill in any crucial gaps in what you need to know about it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A new opportunity should be carefully studied. It might offer some of the things youve been looking for. Or it could contain new possibilities you never considered. Check it out. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might have to work harder this week to get people to listen to what you have to say. But if you stay with it, you could start to get your message out to many by the weeks end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although family matters again take up a big chunk of the Goats time, the week also offers a chance to explore a new career move youd been contemplating for a while. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Applying your practicality (what does it offer me?) and your creativity (how can I improve on it?) could provide sound reasons for seriously considering that new offer. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The single set will find that keeping their romantic aspirations on high gives Cupid a better target to aim at. Paired Pisces will find that this week helps reinforce their relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in encouraging others to demand the best from themselves. You would be a fine sports coach, as well as an enlightened teacher. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. 1. ASTRONOMY: Which planet in our solar system is closest in size to Earth? 2.

WWW GADCOTIMES COM GADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES THURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 11, 2014 21A FAMILY FEATURES A s many busy women know, a daily beauty regimen requires effort and time, but it also has a significant payoff. Keep ing your outward appearance healthy and youthful inspires confidence a glow everyone around you can see. With convenience and ease in mind, here are a few tips that will keep you looking beautiful this season, without all the fuss or having to break the bank:Glowing, Vibrant SkinPoor diet, sun exposure and smoking are just a few of the factors that can lead to the fine lines and wrinkles many women work hard to prevent. While everyone would love a quick fix to erase years of skin abuse, there are some tricks to slow down the process. Covering your skin from the suns harmful rays and keeping its damaging ultraviolet rays at bay helps ward off premature aging and helps to preserve the skin. Whether its cloudy or sunny, your best defense is to apply sun screen that contains an SPF of 30 or higher. You can further decrease your exposure by use of wide brim hats, baseball caps and other skin-covering clothing. Invest in a quality night cream that works deeply to restore the skins appearance as you sleep. Some products offer multiple benefits that firm, improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The Perfect PoutLike any other part of your skin, lips can become dry and flaky, parti cularly when exposed to harsh weather conditions or extreme settings. Give them proper nourishment and care to keep them smooth, supple and free of cracks and irritation. To exfoliate rough patches and remove dead skin, use natural ingredients right from your kitchen. Simply place a small dab of honey and sugar on your lips and gently rub them together. This proce dure is best before bed time and followed with a thick coating of lip balm. This will penetrate and renew as you sleep and youll wake up to plump, smooth and beautiful lips. To maintain lip moisture, invest in a quality lip balm, especially those that pull doubleduty and also offer sun protection.Healthy, Strong NailsUsed throughout the day for arduous tasks, nails experi ence a great deal of wear and tear and are often easy to neglect. Give nails the attention they deserve with a fun spring hue, like mint green or vibrant yellow. When its time to refresh your nails or experi ment with new colors, be sure to always have the proper tools on hand, such as Studio 35 Nail Polish Remover Liquid. Boost your beauty regimen by adding a few of these simple tips into your day, every day. Remember, when you feel good about yourself the whole world can see it. For thousands of great products to help enhance your beauty regimen, visit your local Walgreens or visit www.walgreens.com/beauty. Photo courtesy of Getty Images GoAhead andGlowThis season, the best skin coverage products provide a natural, fresh glow. To give your skin a gentle, sun-kissed vibe, try Rimmel Natural Bronzer, which uses natural minerals for a tanned look any time of the year. Make sure your beauty bag is stocked with the essentials needed for proper application, like the Walgreens Studio 35 Mineral Makeup Brush Set, to help you apply like a pro. An Orange Pout Give your lips a citrusy glow with the many shades of orange that are sweeping the runways. To add the juicy allure of orange to your lips, try Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Rendezvous or Matte Lip Balm in Audacious. Get the BluesDramatic eyes are all the rage with vivid tones of brilliant blue, such as CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Sapphire Flare. The Perfect Cat EyeWith 60s mod inspiration, boldly-lined lids are gracing the covers of fashion maga zines worldwide. Choose a dark gray or black for the best statement, such as the LOreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Lashes Make a Big Statement Complete your extreme eye look with the new lash plumping innovations in mascara. Try LOreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Waterproof Mascara in Black for gorgeous results.

The group unloaded a truck load of food. They packed boxes and got the boxes ready for distribution.
