The week of
April 6
through April
12 has been
designated
"Wildfire
Awareness
Week," a time
to remember
the major fires
from the past
that have
gone through
the area and a


time to ensure that your property is
prepared should another wildfire
approach.
Florida experiences a twelve-
month wildfire season but is most
active from December through
June. Last year the Suwannee
Forestry Center, which encompass-
es Hamilton, Baker, Bradford, Co-
lumbia, Suwannee and Union
Counties, responded to 250 wild-
fires; 207 of those wildfires were in
the months of December through
June.
Wildfires are nothing new to
Florida. It is believed that fires have
burned across the landscape for at
least 12,000 years. The difference
between wildfires in the past com-
pared to today's wildfires is that
many people now live in the wild-
land urban interface and these areas
have excluded fire. This allows a
tremendous amount of vegetation
to build up in the area that sur-

A decision by Jasper City Manag-

Thursday, City Manager Kent Ci-

According to County Coordinator
Danny Johnson, Cichon said the
sheriff's office had not followed the


proper procedures for the donation

Donation of car by sheriff creates a stir at city hall


Continued From Page 1A

was funded through the
county's budget, it was
proper for the chairman
of the board to be in the
photo.
Last Thursday Cichon
told the Jasper News he
refused the car because
the sheriff's office did
not go through the
proper channels that
as city manager, the is-
sue should have been
discussed with him as
to whether the city had
the resources to assume
the liability and insur-
ance for the car.
Cichon also said the
city had received other
donations from sister
cities for "altruistic rea-
sons" with no "photo
op." According to Ci-
chon, when Chief
McGuire arrived at the
sheriff's office to pick
up the car, the others
were waiting to have
their photo taken with
the car. When asked
why he objected to the
photo of an event that
benefited the city and
the county, he repeated
that other cities had giv-
en donations for "altru-
istic reasons, not for
photo ops."
According to Cichon
he was conducting in-


eternal discussions about
the car within the city's
organization. Some of
these discussions in-
volved the city council
members at least three
of them told the Jasper
News that Cichon had
contacted them about
the car.
Thursday, City coun-
cil chairman Kathy
Avriett and member
Darnell Lumpkin said
that Cichon had made a
poor decision.
Said Avriett, "The
sheriff's office was good
enough to give us a car.
I am disappointed the
city manager chose to
have Chief McGuire re-
turn it. This was a move
toward mending fences
and we took a step
backwards. We have to
work together for the
good of the communi-
ty."
Lumpkin said he was
not satisfied with Ci-
chon's actions. "Mr. Ci-
chon should stay out of
police business and let
Chief McGuire run the
police department," he
said. "We should be
building relationships,
not tearing them down."
City council member
Elaine Rozier initially
agreed with Cichon's
decision on Thursday,


saying, "The sheriff's of-
fice should have ap-
proached the city man-
ager or the council and
there should have been
a determination of
need."
Later that day she
amended her statement
based on additional in-
formation she had re-
ceived. She said
McGuire had told Sher-
iff Harrell Reid he need-
ed another car, so she
saw no reason the city
should not have kept
the car.
Mayor Ann Lessman
would not comment
and Karen Bristol could
not be reached for com-
ment.
SThen, on Friday
morning, Cichon sent
McGuire to the sheriff's
office to pick up the car
again. When asked why
he had changed his
mind, Cichon said, "It
was not a matter of
changing my mind; it
was a matter of going
through the proper
channels." According to
Cichon it was an inter-
nal procedure and he
did not have any fur-
ther contact with the
sheriff's office.
Although three of the
council members stated
Cichon had called them


on Thursday about the
car and they had told
him he should not have
returned it, Cichon said
he was "completely un-
aware of any opposi-
tion" to his decision by
the council members.
When asked if he ob-
jected to Vaughn's be-
ing in the photo, Cichon
said, "I don't know any-
thing about a photo; I'm
not concerned about a
photo."
"We should have gra-
ciously accepted the car
from the sheriff," Avri-
ett said. "The city man-
ager is our employee
and the way he handled
it is an embarrassment
to our council."
Update
The Jasper City Coun-
cil held a special work-
shop on Tuesday, April
8, to develop a job de-
scription for the city
clerk's position. During
the meeting, Avriett
stated she had received
a number of phone calls
about the car. She said
was embarrassed for
the city that the car had
been returned because a
photo had been taken.
She noted there were
two other towns in the
county that could have
used the car, but that
the sheriff's office had


chosen to give it to
Jasper.
Rozier said she was
told the city didn't need
the car. She later found
out the chief of police
had told the sheriff that
he needed another car.
She also said she was
upset and embarrassed,
but that the situation
should be used as a
learning experience for
the city manager and
council.
Avriett then brought
forward the fact that ac-
cording to the person-
nel manual, city em-
ployees are not allowed
to discuss city business
with council members.
She said if Chief
McGuire had been able
to talk to her about the
car, she could have in-
tervened and the con-
troversy would have
been avoided.
Rozier agreed that
communication be-
tween council members
and city employees
should be allowed. She
said if a person brought
a complaint before the
council, she wanted to
be able to contact the
appropriate employee
and make sure the mat-
ter was taken care of.
City Attorney Blair
Payne pointed out the


council members had
no authority to direct
city employees. Less-
man said her main con-
cern was the public and
she did not want to get
involved in personnel
matters. The rest of the
council members
agreed they did not
want to direct the em-
ployees, but they want-
ed to be able to follow
up on complaints.
Lessman said the
council needed to go
forward in a positive
way and if communicat-
ing with the employees
was a positive move,
then they should amend
the personnel manual.
Rozier agreed fhe clause
should be amended, but
said there were items in
the manual that also
needed changing. She
felt the manual should
be completely revised at
one time, not changed
one item at a time.
After further discus-
sion, a motion was
made and seconded
that Section 1.3.a.2 pro-
hibiting city employees
from discussing city
business with council
members be removed
from the personnel
manual. The motion
passed with one dis-
senting vote by Rozier.

rounds them.
The wildland urban
interface is defined as
the mixture of develop-
ments and forest. Peo-
ple's desires to be close
to nature often place
them in a high-risk area
for wildfires. Fortunate-
ly, people can have the
natural surroundings
and protection if they
prepare for wildfire.
The most important


element to a protected
home is an area of defen-
sible space. This is an
area around the home
where the vegetation
has been modified to re-
duce the wildfire threat.
It should extend 30 to
100 feet depending on
your property's level of
wildfire risk.
Other ways to protect
the home are as follows:
Clean debris from roofs
and gutters. Trim tree
limbs to six to 10 feet.

enough line so that the
bait is even with the
first guide. With the
bait in my off-hand and
about waist level, I
lower the rod tip to-
ward the water and put
some tension on the
line. In one smooth,
quick motion, I swing
the rod tip toward the
target and upward, let-
ting go of the bait in
my free hand. This is
all controlled with the

bait moves beneath the.


rod tip, release the line
and continue raising
the rod tip and control
the spool with your
thumb. The bait should
fly just above the wa-
ter's surface and
should land in its de-
sired location through
a combination of line
tension and rod move-
ment. Stopping the bait
just before it enters the
water almost always
ensures a smooth,
splash-free entry.
Pitching has been a
go-to technique for an-
glers for years. But it
takes practice. Set up
some drills in the back-
yard or anywhere else
you have room. Even if
you can't be on the wa-
ter, you can still be
sharpening your skills
to make the next trip a
success. Learn to make
accurate, quiet casts
and pitching will likely
become one of your fa-
vorite ways to target
big fish.

Metabolism


By Peggy Boston
Metabolism a com-
mon buzzword in the fit-
ness industry. The key to
dropping the pounds. A
secret weapon that over
the years fizzles into a
dud .grenade!
Following. advice can
be tricky, not everything
works for everyone.
What should you eat?
How much cardiovascu-
lar activity should you
engage in? Lift more? Lift
heavier?
First find the right de-
gree of cardio to bur fat
by working in different
heart rate zones. Get
yourself a cool gadget
like a Heart Rate Monitor
or use the good old fash-
ioned approach of per-
ceived exertion. How
hard are you really work-
ing? Can you chit chat,
speak in short sentences
or are you gasping for the
next breath?
Every athlete needs to
become familiar with
their body's ability to in-
crease and decrease heart
rate over a period of time.
And, yeah, that's you I'm
talking about you're the
athlete in training!
Adding strength train-
ing to your program
every other day will ben-
efit in several ways. Well


developed muscle burns
three times the calories as
a pound of fat, and to be
honest, looks a lot better
in that swimsuit. You
don't have to spend
hours on the track or in
the gym, just to make it
worth the effort. A 20-30
minute daily routine five
days a week will make an
enormous difference in
your health and fitness
goals.
This zigzag effect helps
your body burn more
calories and maintain a
higher calorie bum even
after you are through ex-
ercising for the day. Do-
ing longer, more steady-
paced workouts one day
and a shorter, high-inten-
sity interval session the
next will definitely help
you be the fittest you can
be.
The key is to challenge
yourself in every aspect.
Get that heart rate up just
a little more before it
comes back down. Try a
little heavier weight next
time, or add another rep-
etition until your.muscles
scream for mercy. Enjoy
your life it's the only
one you'll get.

Are you Ready to Re-
lay? Come to the Hamil-
ton County High School
Football Field Friday
evening, April 11, to cel-
ebrate those who have
won the battle, remem-
ber those who have lost
the battle, and fight back
to find a cure. As I men-
tion every year, and
whenever I get a chance
anytime, I do not think
there is anyone in this
community who has not
been affected in some
way, either a family
member, loved one,
friend or acquaintance
you have known, this is
a good time to celebrate
their life, either if they
have survived, or lost
the fight. It is always
such a touching evening,
mixed with memories
and also rejoicing, it is a
small way we can show
our care and concern.
We will see you there!
Our love and prayers
go out this week to the
family of Will Hiers, a
young man, 18 years of
age who died suddenly
on Sunday. He was a
special young man who
will be missed by all
who knew him, getting
ready to graduate from
high school, avid in
sports, baseball and
football. Visitation will


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


be on Wednesday
evening at Reid Funeral
Home, from 5 p.m. until
7 p.m. We understand
the service will be held
at the Court House Ex-
tension Building in the
auditorium of the "old
high school." Burial will
be at Sassers Landing
Cemetery.
During the downpour
Saturday afternoon a
friend, Grace Polk, (96)
was buried at the ceme-
tery here. Grace's hus-
band, Bill Polk, was
buried here several
years ago. Their sons,
Billy and Bobby, came
from Alabama with their
families to bring her
back here to be buried
next to her husband.
While living in Jasper;
the family members
were faithful land active
members of the Jasper
Presbyterian Church,
they lived in the house
now owned by Cecil and
Marla Rowe across from,
the Presbyterian Church
Manse. Grace served in
many capacities in the
Church; she was the City
Clerk of Jasper for a


number
of years and served
faithfully in whatever
she did. The family was
here for a short time on
Saturday, having to
leave immediately to get
back to their homes in
Alabama. Grace lived to
be 96, one of the sons
said she was able to be
"up and around" until
very recently.
Never fear! We are not
losing Mac's Place. They
want you to know they
sincerely appreciate
your business and will
continue to serve you.

They wish to thank all of
you for your continued
support.
Friends and family
members gathered on
Sunday afternoon,
March 30, at the home of
Karen and Rex Mitchell,
to honor the expected ar-
rival of a daughter to
Kyler and Elissa Hall.
There was much excite-
.ment and happiness as
Elisa opened the gifts, it
was a very special day. It
is amazing how many
new items are available
now for new babies,
lovely and useful. Elisa's
family lives in California
and they were not able
to be here, yet will be ar-
riving soon: The Hall
family has been busy
helping them get a nurs-
ery ready in their new
apartment in Tallahas-
see. Special guests in-
cluded Kyler's mother,
Conni Hall, his sister,
Casi Burette, and wife
of the head football
coach in Suwannee
County. Hostesses were
Karen Mitchell, Carol
Milton and Elizabeth
Mitchell.
Looking forward to
hearing from you!

Snoring in the pews


His snoring was loud,
guttural, and distinctive.
Lee, who I had brought
to church, was embar-
rassing me. Sitting two
rows from the front, I
wondered if the pastor
heard him.
The elder's wife
glanced back at me. She
smiled rather gracious-
ly. 6A teenager across the
aisle gave me a roll-
your-eyes smirk. I could
only guess what the peo-
ple behind me thought.
Then my wife gave me a
Look Poke him.
I did, once. Not liking
his sleepy-eyed glare, I
stopped. Lee nodded,
snored, and intermit-
tently jerked his head.
Then he would listen
briefly and continue the
irritating snoring.
I take my church expe-
rience seriously. I want
to experience God. I
want to worship God. I
want to have my life
changed . I want, I
want.
Yeah, I started hearing
from God right through
the snoring. The Bible


verse, "Humble yourself
before the Lord and He
will lift you up in due
time," whispered into
my mind.
While concerned if
other people were dis-
tracted by the snoring, I
humbled myself. I de-
cided not to care about
what people thought of
me.
Driving home, Lee
said, "I'm sorry I kept
falling asleep."
"That's OK." I was
glad he went with me
knowing he attends
church less than once a
month. I'm concerned
about Lee's spiritual life.
A couple of weeks lat-
er, my wife saw Lee.
Again he mentioned his
falling asleep, adding,
"Every time I woke up, it
was like the preacher
was talking right to me."
And then he told her he
was attending church
closer to home more reg-
ularly."
God showed me the
Sunday service was
about God and Lee ...
not me. I was lifted up.

Prevent later vision loss with lifestyle changes


As one ages, certain changes to the body are to be
expected. One of the more common side effects of aging
is vision loss.

While some degree of vision loss is common as we age,
it's not entirely inevitable. Though age-related macular
degeneration (AMD) causes blindness and affects nearly
2 million Americans over the age of 40, there are steps all
people, young and old, can take to preserve and protect
their vision.

Get in shape: As more and more research is conducted
on the effects of being overweight and obese, greater
evidence is being presented as to just how negative the
effects of extra pounds can be on the entire body. Vision
is no exception.

A recent study showed that a woman's body mass index
(BMI) can have a very negative impact on vision. Women
with a BMI over 30 were found to have a higher risk of
developing cataracts. In addition, excess weight is linked
to a host of other problems, such as hypertension and
high cholesterol. Each of those conditions negatively
effects vision by slowing the flow of blood to the eyes.

Getting in shape involves improving diet, which can
also help vision. Foods that are high in antioxidants, such
as many fruits and vegetables, absorb harmful UV rays in
the eye, almost acting as nature's sunglasses in the
process.

Shedding any excess weight and including exercise in
your daily routine pays great dividends across the board,
not the least of which is keeping your eyes healthy for the
long run.

Quit smoking: While all smokers are running the very
real risk of experiencing respiratory problems and
possibly getting lung cancer, they're putting themselves
in danger for other ailments. Much like some of the
misconceptions associated with being overweight, few
smokers realize the impact this lifestyle choice is having
on other parts of their bodies, including their eyes.

Smokers are four times as likely to develop AMD as
nonsmokers. That's because cigarette smoke contains
harmful toxins that can enter the bloodstream and damage
blood vessels in the eye. The longer a person smokes, the
more damaging.this can be to those blood vessels,
weakening them and robbing them of their ability to
function properly. While there's a host of reasons to quit
smoking, smokers may not be aware that losing their
vision is one of those reasons.

SFollow directions: Over the years, the popularity of
contact lenses has skyrocketed. Almost as popular is
leaving those lenses in for longer times than
recommended. Anyone who uses contact lenses should


follow the removal and cleaning guidelines that come with
those lenses. Some lenses are designed so users can sleep
with them still in. Others are the more traditional lenses and
should be removed each night. Regardless of which are used,
the directions need to be followed to avoid the dirt and
bacteria that inevitably collects on the lens from causing
infection or inflammation. This is one of the easiest ways to
ward off AMD, and contact lens users should pay close
attention to recommended guidelines. A few minutes of work
at night is certainly worth preserving your vision down the
road.

SMake a health statement: Sunglasses cannot only make
you look better, they can help you see better over the long
run as well. Sunglasses are essentially sunblock for your
eyes, reducing exposure to harmful UV rays. UV rays can
have a very negative impact on the eyes, from spreading
cataracts to increasing the risk of AMD. Be sure to buy
sunglasses that state their level of UV protection, and while
style might be important, choose substance over style to
ensure your vision is entirely protected.

Bring the garden to your dinner table


Learn how to grow a vegetable garden


Growing a garden is a rewarding experience
for someone looking to add color and wildlife to
the landscape. However, growing a fruit and
vegetable garden offers the same delight and
more a harvest of fresh produce you can enjoy
with every meal.
There are few things more satisfying than
nursing a seedling or young plant into maturity
and being able to harvest what it grows. Every-
thing seems more delicious when it's home-
grown. However, keep in mind that biting into
that juicy tomato or grilling up that fresh-
plucked zucchini is the last step in a successful
garden. It takes a little more than tossing down
seed and waiting for a bounty. There are steps to
ensure success.

Plan Your Garden

While you may want your garden a stone's
throw from the home for easy access, consider
the conditions of the soil and the light that area
gets before planting. A vegetable garden typical-
ly needs six or more hours of sunlight to thrive.
So watch how the sun strikes areas of your
landscape throughout the day and see what bar-
riers to the sunlight (trees, houses) present
themselves. Soil conditions include how well
the soil will drain, soil quality and obstacles that
show up while digging, including rocks or deep
roots. Determine if soil quality can be amended
with compost, peat moss and other nutrients.
While planning, consider the vegetables you'd
like to have in your garden. It may be cost ef-
fective to start plants from seeds indoors and
transplant to the outdoors at the right time of
year. But some plants do not like transplanting
and prefer to start and grow outside in the gar-
den. A gardening center can help you navigate
the different vegetable types and help you deter-
mine the proper planting methods and dates.
While keeping in mind location, think about


how you will fence in your garden to keep out
unwanted pests. Also think about plant height
and growth. You'll want taller plants in the back
so that they do not end up shading the shorter .
plants from the sun.


Prep the Soil


The best soil for a successful garden is fertile
and well-drained. Hard shale, rock ledges, grav-
el beds, deep sand, and other types can make
gardening difficult to impossible. If this is all
you have to work with, consider container gar-
dening instead, where you can better control the
soil condition. Most soil just needs a simple .
tune up with organic matter to make it hos-
pitable for a vegetable garden.


Get Planting


If you are sowing seeds, create shallow
grooves into which you will deposit the seeds.
Cover the seeds with a fine soil and lightly wa-
ter to set. The most important thing to remem-
ber concerning seeds is that they require ade-
quate moisture to germinate. Keep seeds moist
until they form strong seedlings.
. When transplanting from vegetables you
started indoors, or if planting items you bought
at a garden center, dig a hole slightly larger than
the root ball of the existing plant. Water the
plants before removing them from their contain-
er to lessen the shock. Then tap the container to
loosen and remove the plant. Separate tightly
woven roots gently and place the plant in the
hole. Cover with soil and water thoroughly.
Depending upon your choice of vegetables,
you could enjoy fresh vegetables from May
through October. Don't forget to include some
herb plants in your garden so you'll have savory
seasonings to add to your fresh vegetable
recipes.

Genetic modification through

transgeniccrops is changing the way

the agricultural industry operates

Pros and Cons of Transgenic Crops


' -

.. _.


--'t .

-.- '-


Genetic modification through transgenic crops is changing the way the agricultural in-
dustry operates.


Many people are continually looking to
improve on the real thing, whether it's de-
signer foods that are lower in fat, cars that
travel faster and more efficiently, medi-
cines that work faster and better, or even
modifying themselves to appear more at-
tractive.
In the area of agriculture, scientists also
look to make improvements to crops
through genetic engineering. While there
are many benefits to improving upon na-
ture, some feel that one shouldn't meddle
in what Mother Nature has designed for
fear of an environmental backlash. Each
side has some warranted points for the
other to consider.

What are transgenic crops?
Transgenic crops are those into which
genetic material from another organism
has been experimentally transferred.
These plants contain a gene or genes
which have been artificially inserted in-
stead of the plant acquiring them through
pollenation. The inserted gene sequence
(known as the transgene) may come from
another unrelated plant or from a com-
pletely different species, according to the
Department of Soil and Crop Sciences at
Colorado State University. For example, a
specific trait inherent to the soybean plant
may be transferred to a corn crop through
transgenic science to improve upon the
corn yields. As science continues to
evolve, so do the possibilities in this area
of application.
There are many reasons behind this ex-
perimentation, including promoting faster
growth and disease- and drought-resis-
tance. Transgenic crops are often referred
to as genetically modified (GM) because
of the scientific "interference."

Advantages to GM plants
Just like many things in life, genetic
modification has its advantages and disad-
vantages. There are many benefits to GM
that inspire genetic engineers to keep up
their efforts. These include:
Crop protection GM can allow for
greater protection of plants through inher-
ent pest protection, limiting the amount of
pesticides needed and improving on crop
yields. For example, through transgenes,
many plants are transformed by the addi-
tion of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) protein,
a substance that has long been used as a
natural pesticide. When bred with this
protein in place, crops such as corn, cot-
ton and potatoes become pest-resistant
upon growth.


Bigger yields Studies into the ideal
growing conditions and advantages of
other crops can help grow plants where
the conditions may not be as favorable. A
plant can be modified with a drought-re-
sistance gene so that it is more tolerant of
arid conditions when it would naturally
prefer a wetter climate.
Improved nutrition There is a
greater emphasis of late on foods that of-
fer maximum nutritional value. GM crops
can be grown to produce more protein,
starch or nutrient content than their "aver-
age" varieties.
Better environment Natural pest and
environmental deterrents lead to a de-
creased reliance on chemical fertilizers,
pest control, etc. This also has a trickle-
down effect to the environment where
chemical runoff may find its way into
ground and drinking water.

Disadvantages to GM plants
On the flip side of the argument, sever-
al disadvantages surface on the topic of
transgenic plants.
Superweeds Some feel that where
unnatural interference has occurred there
is the chance that GM plants can eventu-
ally cross-pollinate with neighboring
plants to form a "superweed" that is more
difficult to control. The concern results
from speculation that genetic engineering
could improve a plant's ability to "escape"
into the wild and produce ecological im-
balances or disasters.
Lack of biodiversity Many worry
that conventional crops knock out the nat-
ural biodiversity of the planet's plants to a
certain effect. There is also fear that GM
crops could further monopolize the envi-
ronment.
Potential allergens There are millions
of people who suffer from allergies. In
typical cases, it is easy to identify the of-
fender and avoid that allergen. For exam-
ple, if a person is allergic to peanuts, he
or she simply does not consume products
that contain peanuts. However, with trans-
genic technology, allergens may end up in
other normally unoffending foods through
gene transfer. So for argument's sake, a
peanut gene could turn up in a potato
plant and provide the same allergic reac-
tion.
While there are opposing sides to the
conversation about transgenic crops, it
seems the consensus lies in the positive
attributes of this science. It is likely the
agricultural market will continue to be
transformed through genetic engineering.


Beneficial bugs good


for ag industry

Biological control, or the use of beneficial bugs to eat other bugs that typically
damage cops is an area of study that continues to grow. The science is not new. An-
cient Chinese records describe the construction of bamboo runways to help predato-
ry ants move through citrus groves. Today there are hundreds of mail-order compa-
nies that sell predator or parasitic beneficial insects. And researchers all across the
country are investigating how some rarely studied predator bugs react with common
pests and the eggs they Ian.
For example, the Uinversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmen-
tal Sciences experiments with tiger beetles showed that the beetle was a voracious
eater when it came to devouring worms and grubs that feed on Georgia turfgrass
and ornamental plants.
In Southern Texas. farmers are finding out that the cockroach, often considered
the bane of society, feasts on insects harmful to crops. The Asian cockroach. a fly-
ing variety, which looks almost identical to it's German cockroach cousin (the cock-
roach most commonly found scavenging in homes) feeds on bollworm eggs that
threaten cotton, soybean, corn, and tomato crops. These Asian cockroaches also dine
on other insects that damage crops.
Using natural insect predadors to reduce the numbers of pests that destroy crops
can be very beneficial in terms of reducing dependency on chemical pesticides.
More research needs to be conducted into the cost-effectiveness of beneficial bugs to
the agriculture industry.


'Green' packaging helping to

reshape agriculture industry


Millions of pounds of
trash end up in landfills
around the world each year.
That's because, in today's
society, one is more apt to
rely heavily on disposable
products that offer time sav-
ings and convenience than
reusable materials.
Did you know it can take
anywhere from 50 to 100
years or more for products
to decompose in landfills?
Some items such as alu-
minum cans, glass bottles
and plastic packaging may
survive for 300 years or in-
definitely in the ground. As
the rate of trash produced
continues to escalate, the
race is on to find alternatives
to packaging and products
that are more eco-friendly.
Otherwise, the Earth may
become saturated with
garbage in years to come.
In the last few years,
North America has begun to
catch up with Europe and
Asia in the exploration of
biodegradable polyesters
and plant-based products in
rigid and flexible packaging.
As such, the potential of
widespread use of these
"green" materials could
have a large impact on the
agriculture industry. Prelim-
inary research indicates that
demand for biodegradable
polyesters is growing about
30 percent every year.
What are biodegrad-
able polyesters?
Polyesters come in two
main categories: synthetic
and plant-derived. Synthetic
polyesters are made from
petrochemical-based poly-
mers. But unlike traditional
polymers, these have been
specially designed to break
down rapidly to water and
carbon dioxide (C02) in
certain conditions when wa-
ter and appropriate microbes
are applied. Therefore, in-
stead of centuries for de-
composition, these poly-
mers can break down in as
soon as 12 weeks. Other
plant-based items that fall
loosely under the term of


polyesters include polylactic
acid and others that are
biopolymers, or those poly-
mers derived from renew-
able plant resources such as
starch.
Why isn't 'green'
used more?
Cost is one of the major
deterrents to biodegradable
packaging. Simply put, pa-
per and traditionally pro-
duced plastics are more
cost-effective to produce
and purchase. The benefit of
low-cost disposal has yet to
overwhelm the initial cost
factor of synthetic
biodegradable polyesters
and some plant-derived ones
as well.
Blending Occurs
Factoring in cost and cer-
tain pros and cons inherent
to biodegradable polyesters,
major researchers are col-
laborating to create blends
that complement one anoth-
er's properties to produce the
desired product results. For
example, one polyester may
be brittle and have poor ad-
hesion while another may be
sticky and malleable. By
combining the two, one gets
the best of both worlds.
Impact on Agriculture
There is a two-folded im-
pact on the farming commu-
nity in regard to green pack-
aging. Initially, there is a
greater reliance on plant-


based components for the
plant-derived polymers.
Secondly, it is beneficial for
agricultural businesses to
use green products in their
applications.
For example, seedling
bags made from biodegrad-
able polyesters are absorbed
into the soil, eliminating the
need for collection and dis-
posal. Other biodegradable
films are used to prolong the
life of fresh produce, replac-
ing flexible PVC wraps. Ad-
ditionally, in the food indus-
try, meat and produce trays
are being formed out of
starch in lieu of polystyrene
or other petroleum-based
materials. And for home-
owners and farmers who
collect and dispose of lawn
clippings, leaves and tilled
soil, biodegradable films in
lawn and garden bags im-
prove biodegradation rates
and reduce disposal costs.
There are a number of
companies investigating and
revolutionizing the
biodegradable polyester in-
dustry. These include some
domestic and international"
organizations such as East-
man Eastar Bio, BASF, SK
Chemicals, DuPont and
Showa Denko group. As the
increased awareness and in-
terest in green packaging
continues, the list is certain
to grow.

LEGAL SERVICES
DIRECTORY

lid *oa Ko More than 70 countries across the globe now have some form of freedom
of information legislation. Such laws vary by country, but typically
provide public access to government information or records. In the United
States, the Freedom of Information Act became law in 1966 under then-
President Lyndon Johnson. The Act was then updated with the Electronic
Freedom of Information Act amendments under President Bill Clinton in
1996. While the act only applied to federal agencies, all of the states and
territories have statutes requiring the disclosure of information by state and
local governments. The United Kingdom enacted their own Freedom of
Information Act in 2000, while Canada's Access to Information Act in
1983 allowed citizens access to government-controlled information. The
trailblazer for freedom of information legislation is believed to be Sweden,
who enacted their Freedom of the Press Act in 1766, though the act at that
time was far more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 14-F

Good for You, Good for Your Dog!


CANINE COMPANIONS


Enjoy Some ofLife's


Best Pleasures

FAMILY FEATURES
he expression "It's a dog's life" certainly holds true for the millions of four-
legged friends who are now enjoying some of life's best little pleasures, a
privilege their owners have appreciated for years. In fact, more than 75 percent
of pet owners consider their dogs to be members of the family, according to the
American Pet Products Manufacturers Association 2005 to 2006 National Pet Owners
Survey. This means America's canine companions are now enjoying creature comforts
that include sleeping in bed with their owners, traveling on vacations and meeting
with their doggie pals for organized play dates. In addition, recent trends in pet
ownership are changing the way dogs eat, with the emergence of dog food that
is inspired by entrees more commonly found on the dinner table.
Feed Your Dog Like Part of the Family
More and more dog owners want to feed their dogs like they feed themselves -
choosing foods made with gourmet flavors and real, wholesome ingredients that
offer a balance of high-quality nutrition and great taste. According to a Purina
survey of 1,000 adult pet owners living in the U.S.*, 91 percent rank high-quality
protein as the most important nutrient to consider when purchasing food for their
dogs and cats. This is followed closely by 90 percent who say they want to serve
their pets foods rich in antioxidants. Mealtime has never been more exciting for
man's best friend as dog owners place great emphasis on the quality of the food
going into their dogs' bowls.
"Over the past several years, we have seen the emergence of a growing food
trend that we call 'affordable indulgence,'" said Lucien Vendome, executive
chef for Nestl6. "Gourmet foods and flavors once considered upscale and limited
only to fine-dining establishments are now appearing in mass channels such as
grocery stores and even in commercial dog food."
According to Vendome, "Four-legged friends can now enjoy a gourmet meal
with the Filet Mignon, Prime Rib and New York Strip Flavors found in the
ALPO' Chop House Originals* brand dog food line, which also includes
products made with Angus beef."
In addition to enjoying real meat flavors, dogs can also dine on food featuring
unique ingredients in the form of wholesome fruits, vegetables and a wide
selection of good-for-you grains. For example, some dog foods are now formu-
lated with accents of antioxidant-rich cranberries and sweet potatoes. Others
deliver excellent nutrition and great taste through whole grains like oatmeal
and brown rice.
As more and more pet owners feed their four-legged friends like they feed
themselves, they are helping to ensure that mealtime is the highlight of every-
one's day! For more information on the gourmet flavors found inALPO brand
dog food, visit www.alpo.com.
*Phone interviews were conducted of 1000 adults, ages 18 and over living in the United -
States during a one-weekperiod in April 2007. Most results have a margin of error of+/- 5%
at the 95% confidence level for comparable data between the populations ofpet owners.
Indulge Your Dog's Desires
Sometimes, dogs just want to be dogs, and it's up to their owners to find creative
ways for their canine companions to enjoy some dog-gone, good old-fashioned
fun. It may require dog owners to go back to the basics, but it makes all the dif-
ference in making their canine friends feel like a special part of the family. Dogs
desire the simple things in life daily exercise, delicious meaty meals and lots
of bonding time with the humans they love most!
Fun
'Dogs need a positive outlet for energy, and nothing helps them release it more
than a walk around the block, a fun game of fetch or a trip to the dog park.
Not only does exercise help dogs maintain a healthy weight and ideal body
condition, but it also helps keep them out of trouble and resting quietly at the
end of the day. A walk provides dogs with a chance to enjoy the fresh air as
well as check out all the great sights and smells of the neighborhood. For
more active pups that prefer to run, a fun game of fetch with a tennis ball or
Sa flying disc is just the trick. And for social dogs who prefer the company of
other dogs, a play date with a small group of their beloved canine companions
can be the perfect activity for exercise and bonding.
Food
Now, for the highlight of a dog's day mealtime! Don't forget that the deli-
Scious aromas and tastes of a gourmet meal can now be shared with the whole
family, including the dog. Mealtime is a great time to remind dogs just how
much they are loved each and everyday. So, while the family gathers around
the table to enjoy a mouthwatering dinner, make sure the dog bellies up to his
bowl to find an equally appetizing meal, such as one of the many tasty beef
flavors of ALPO Chop House Originals brand dog food, which is made with
Angus beef. As the old adage goes, a way to a loved one's heart is through
his stomach, and dogs are no exception.
Friendship
In addition to their daily walk and a great meaty meal, dogs like nothing
better than some one-on-one bonding time with their owners. It only takes a
belly rub and some snuggle time to get tails wagging. In fact, spending quality
time together can benefit the owner as much as it does the dog, and it may
even result in fewer doctor visits for the owner, especially for non-serious
medical conditions.

DINNER IS SERVED: Top Dog Food Trends
The humanization of pets trend is significantly impacting the dog food industry. As a result, owners are finding
more specialized product offerings that allow them to feed their dogs like they feed themselves, choosing food
that is mspired by selections more commonly found on the dinner table.
Here are some of the hottest trends changing the way America's dogs are eating:
Natural/Organic
As more people are embracing a healthy lifestyle and eating organic and natural foods, they are also choosing
natural foods for their pets. Industry research shows that naturallorganic pet food is expected to grow at more
than three times the rate of total pet food through 2007 (Packaged Facts, Market Trends: Natural Pet Products,
February 2005). Among the ingredients included in natural pet food are whole grains such as oatmeal and
brown rice and accents of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables like cranberries and sweet potatoes.
Gourmet Flavors
"Only the best" has long been the standard for fine-dinng establishments that cater to people who desire a
high-quality, gourmet meal. Now dogs can also enjoy the fine tastes in life with dog food products hke ALPO
Chop House Originals brand dog food that features restaurant-inspired flavors including.Filet Mignon Flavor,
Top Sirloin Flavor and Ribeve Flavor made with Angus beef. :
SHealthy Enhancements
Dog owners are taking an active role in not only trying to promote their own health, but also the health of
Stheir.canine companions. For example. dog food is now available vith specialized ingredients that support
healthy joints, an important benefit for large breed dogs. In addition, omega fatty acids are now added to
some pet foods to help promote a healthy skin andcoat (Pet Foods Get Functional, "Functional Ingredients
Magazine," July 2006, pages 10 to 15). Advanced veterinary formulas are also available for purchase through
veterinarians for pets with certain health condinons.
Convenience-Oriented
In this time-siarved society, people are continuously looking for products that help them get things done faster
and easier, so the\ can enjoy more time \wih their families Convenience is also finding its a\ to the dog
food bovl, with dog food products that are now available in special user-fnendly packaging that helps make
feeding time e\en more enjoyable. For instance, certain dog food products come in cans % ith easy open lids,
vhich eliminate the need for a can opener. Other dog food products come m re-usable plastic containers that
make t1 possible for the oi\ner to save the unused portion in die refrigerator until their dog's next meal
