Missy Owens of SES
continues to recover
from mystery illness
By DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Those who know Cypress resident
Missy Owens say she's always front
and center in line to help if she knows
someone in need.
Described by several as a talented
cook, she can be counted on to pre-
, pare delicious comfort food for ailing
friends, neighbors and members of
the larger community around her.
If food is needed, for a fundraiser in
the vicinity, it's a good bet that she'll

of her famous 21-layer chocolate
cakes, or her. special macaroni and
cheese dish that makes mouths water

illness that had her bedridden for

to get back in the kitchen, where she

treats for her loved ones. But she is
Husband Bryan Owens counted it as*

she was able to walk a total of 197 feet
in the course of a day with support.
For the better part of month, she was
unable to get out of bed. The first day
she was able to walk, she .only made
.it 17 feet.
Her current troubles began one
morning in August. The night before,
she'd baked some chocolate 6clairs

End the stalemate
T o most Americans, the budget impasse in Wash-
.ington may seem like nothing more than childish
L finger-pointing from a bunch of party loyalists
who would govern by brinksmanship if that's what's
necessary to get their way. *
It's difficult to argue with that assessment. But to
those directly affected by the failure of Congress to
approve a budget, forcing government services to shut
down, it's more than an annoyance. It's a calamity. .
We're not just talking about the people who arrive at
government landmarks to find them closed for busi-
ness, or even the countless people government
workers, civilian contractors and others who deperid on
the continued operation of government whose liveli-
hoods are in limbo until the stalemate ends.
It 6ould be worse. And for many people right here
in our community, it is: They're working, but they're
not getting paid. And there's no tellingwhen that will

tute here in Marianna are going to their jobs just as they

of work- the labor they'd putin just prior to the Oct. 1
According to officials with the prison workers' union,

onlyget as far as creating an account and a password

Of those who've used the system, only one in 10 suc-

according to an Associated'Press-GtK poll.
The administration assures us these glitches are being

to serve millions of expected applicants in 36 states. But
notoriously impatient Americans have gotten over their
earlier fear of computers and now expect the site to ,

Can good bacteria fight a growing medical threat?
From Consumer Reports
SA serious infection that
has been on the rise in hos-
pital. patients is now be-
ing increasingly reported
among people who work or
spend time in health care
settings, such as a doctor's
office or clinic, Consumer
Reports On Health warns.
Caused by the bacte-
rium Clostridium diffi-
cile, also known as C-diff,
the infection can cause
chronic diarrhea, ab-
dominal pain and intesti-
. nal inflammation, which
in severe cases can be
The problem often af-
fects hospitalized patients
treated with antibiotics,
which not only kill harm-
ful bacteria, but also can
destroy protective ones,
allowing C-diff to gain a
foothold. But new research
suggests that the bugs are
now also infecting peo-'
ple outside hospital set-
tings, including some who
haven't taken antibiotics.
In a study of 984 people
with C-diff published on-
line June 17 in JAMA In-
ternal Medicine, about 60
percent had taken antibi-
otics within the previous
12 weeks but more than
80 percent had been to
some type of health care
While the odds of con-
tracting a C-diff infection
are low overall (about 1 .in
100 for someone admitted
to a hospital, and much
lower for others), the con-
sequences can be serious.
That's especially true be-
cause the bacterium has
been evolving into increas-
ingly vinfrulent strains that
can resist drug treatment;
So how can you protect
yourself from this threat?
Research is finding that
the answer might lie in
probiotics -- helpful bacte-
ria that live in the human
gut. A growing body of evi-
dence suggests that those
trillions of microorgan-
isms play a critical role in
defending us from illness,
and that taking supple-
mental doses of probiotics
might help prevent infec-
tions like C-diff by restor-
ing the balance of "good
bugs" in the gut.
Found in pills, powders
and fermented foods such
as yogurt and kefir, probi-
otics are often said to help
"balance" our internal mi-
crobial- communities, or
microbiome, by providing
an infusion of health-pro-
moting bugs that support
the body's optimal func-
tioning. Boosts may be es-
pecially important at times
when our native bacteria
are under assault from
'Disruptions to our mi-
crobiome have been
linked to everything from
obesity to anxiety. But
while probiotics are some-
times touted for those and
other ailments, Consumer
Reports On Health notes
that there's little evidence
that they can help treat
them. The strongest stud-
ies of probiotics' have in-
stead focused on their
role in immunity.
Studies have shown there
are 10 times more bacterial
cells than there are human
cells living in our bodies,
concentrated mostly in the
intestines. Those bacteria
help digest food and syn-
thesize vitamins. They also
help fortify our defenses
against germs that can
Scientists speculate that
our increasingly sterile en-
vironment may be weak-
ening this microbial shield.
Our homes are more hy-
gienic and we have less
contact with bacteria-lad-
en soil and animals,than
our ancestors did. Our
food and water are' also

These developments have
no doubt reduced our
exposure to potentially

Lady Indians impress
in first preseason action
The Chipola Lady Indians women
basketball team went 3-0 at Darton
(Ga.) College over the weekend, taking
big wins over Darton, Georgia Perim-
eter, and Central Georgia Tech in its first
scrimmage of the preseason.
Chipola won by 18 points over Darton,
20 over Georgia Perimeter, and 32 over
Central Georgia Tech. '
It was enough to.earn the approval of
second-year coach Greg Franklin; who
said he was happy to finally.see his squad
face live competition after two weeks of
"I'm just glad the first run is over. The
first couple of (preseason) games are
always the sloppiest," he said. "We did
some good'things.' I thought our pres-
sure in terms of effort was pretty relent-
less. As far as the cognizant part of the
game, we still have a long ways to go, but
it's just the first two and a half weeks."
The Lady Indians brought in one of the
top recruiting classes .in the nation to
join a talented returning core of players
led by redshirt sophomore guard Khade-
jah Ellison, 3-poirit specialist Rahni Bell,
and sophomore post player Treyvonna
Franklin said it was a good weekend-
for the newcomers, mentioning the play
of post players Evelyn Akhator and Bri-
anna Wright as well as guards Tiffany
Lewis and Diamonisha Sophns as espe-
cially noteworthy. -
With the added depth, Chipola should'
be able to play at least 10 players on a
regular basis after' often being reduced
to just a six-, oi seven-player rotation last
It's a luxury that Franklin said he is al-
"I love the big numbers because when
I get mad at five (players), I can go put
five new ones in," he said. "I've told them
that you won't get on the floor very much
if you make' the same mistakes twice.
You have to learn from mistakes quicker
this year. The biggest thing is you have
to fight for playing time. You might not
get on the floor if you have a bad week of
practice because there is someone right
beside you who is just as good as you
are. We didn't have that last year."
However, it wasn't all clean for Chipold
in its first preseason outing and Frankldin
said there is still much he wants to see
the Lady Indians do better when they go
to Tallahassee for another scrimmage
' "I'd like to see, us executing better of-
fensively with our early offense and fast-
break stuff. I really wanted to see us do a
16t more of that and-flow better (in Dar-
ton)," he said. "'Right now we're ,kind of
rigid. We played two games against zone
and a whole game against 2-3 zone. I
came away fromthat thinking, 'yeah,-I'im
going to see a lot of zone this year.'" '

not held runners well this

We are in our mid-20s. Both of us are

When we started dating, we just
wanted to have fun. I have since gradu-
ated and am currently working. He is also
,a graduate, but has yet to find a job. The
problem is, I have begun to really care
for him and want to change our status
from "just dating" to "in a relationship."
However, he still doesn't want to take
that step. He says it's because he hasn't
started his career yet. He also thinks,
we are too young to be thinking about
marriage, and I agree with that. I'm not
,. interested in marrying in the ne-t few
years, but I do want to be in a relation-
ship with someone for a few years before
Jim Boren was a humorist and writer on "bureau-
cratese," in which he "poked fun at what he called,
"the vacuumental thinking and idiotomdcities of '
Washington." He said, "I got the bill for my sur-
gery. Now I know why those doctors were wearing'
masks." : ,
SSome bridge players would benefit from being al-
lowed access to a bridge doctor, who would explain
how to keep a contract alive.
In this deal, South is in three no-trumrnp. West
leads a low club and East puts up his jack. How,
should South plan the play? What would the doctor
In the auction, South considered rebidding three
diamonds to show his six-card suit and game-in-
vitational values. But he had two solid club stop-
pers and knewthat usually nine tricks'are easier to
win than 11. (Note that five diamonds goes down,
declarer losing one spade and two hearts.)
South seems to have nine top tricks: one spade,
six diamonds and two clubs. However, that lead is
annoying because it has cut declarer's communica-
tion with the dummy. If he takes the first trick and
cashes dummy's diamonds, he cannot .get back to
his hand. What would a doctor do?
The only chance is to duck the first trick, letting
East win with.his jack. If he does what most players.
would do, he will lead back a club. This allows South
to win with his king and cash the ace, discarding
both of dummy's annoying diamonds. Afterthat,
South takes, his six diamond tricks and dummy's
spade ace to cruise home.
Then West might,suggest that East's brain could
do with some medical attention.

This has left me wondering whether I
should take it down a notch and enjoy

to continue and use the time to "start
