Officials voice concerns over budget


Continued From Page 1A


Will Kendrick, Rep. Debbie Boyd and
Sen. Charlie Dean to discuss how cur-
rent services will be affected by bud-
gets.
"It's good to see so many elected offi-
cials in Tallahassee," said Rep.
Kendrick. "We are grateful for their
support and keeping us abreast of
what's going on in the district especial-
ly as we are competing for critical dol-
lars in the rural counties." .
According, to Townsend, one of item
of discussion was House Bill 715 (TA-
BOR Taxpayer's Bill of Rights), a pro-
p6sal that requires local and state gov-
ernments to cap spending and revenue
at a defined base amount, with periodi-
cal adjustments for population growth
and inflation. Supporters argue the bill
will ensure government spending does
not exceed the pace of the economy,
thus causing the governments to be-
come more efficient. The League oppos-
es the bill, instead supporting a fair and
equitable tax structure that is competi-
tively neutral and allows municipalities
the flexibility to provide adequate ser-
vices in their communities.
The League also opposes House Bill
683/Senate Bill 2148 (Public
Works/Utilities/Transportation/Road
Activities), according to Townsend. Un-
der the current law, a municipality may
use their employees and equipment to
perform construction or public works
projects without having to go through a
competitive bid or award process.
These bills would require municipali-


ties to use a competitive bid or award
process, which will add substantial
costs and delays to completing con-
struction and public works projects.
Mayor McKire placed great emphasis
on home rule, the ability for local gov-
ernments to govern themselves.
Townsend said there appears to be a
strong push with Legislators in Talla-
hassee to erode local home rule and
place the legislators in control of how
government is run.
'The only source for change that a cit-
izen has is through their local elected of-
ficials," Townsend said. 'If you don't
believe me, try to get your voice heard
in Tallahassee just as a private citizen."
Mayor McKire and Vice Mayor Hard-
wick also requested support for the
Town of White Springs' requests for
funds for the Carver School multipur-
pose community center project, a new
police and fire emergency operations
center and the new town library spon-
sored by the Hamilton County Com-
mission.
"I really appreciate Mayor McKire's
and Vice-Mayor Hardwick's faithful-
ness during my time of service in the
House of Representatives," Rep.
Kendrick said. "They are both dedicated
public servants and have been available
anytime they have been contacted to as-
sist my office with local concerns."
The budget continues to be the issue
at the forefront of citizens' minds, as the
House and the Senate work to produce
a balanced budget that will be fair to all
agencies and programs and ultimately
the citizens of the State of Florida.

By Mayor Ann
Lessman
Even though the rain
came without ceasing,
city employees were
very successful with
their yard sale on Sat-
urday, April 5. Thank
you to all employees
that participated.
Council Members
and staff have been
busy this month. We
held a workshop on
Tuesday, April 8, our
monthly council meet-
ing on Monday, April
14 and a workshop on


Monday, April 21. An-
other workshop is
scheduled for Monday,
April 28.
Council members
Elaine Rozier, Kathy
Averitt, and I, and City
Clerk Jennifer Cone at-
tended the quarterly
meeting of the Suwan-
nee River League of
Cities in Branford on
Thursday, April 10.
Some very positive
things were discussed
in our April meeting.
We are presently sched-
uling a meeting with


Jasper business owners
for June 2, at 6:30 pm.
The planning and de-
sign for water and sew-
er improvements
through a $70,000 Com-
munity Development
Block Grant (CDBG) is
near completion. The
City will soon be apply-
ing for another CDBG
grant for construction
of these improvements
in the amount of
$650,000.
The product Aqua
Mag or its equivalent
was approved by the


council; this will be
used as a corrosion in-
hibitor and sequestrant
to reduce and hopefully
eliminate rust in our
water system.
City Manager Kent
Cichon and the Council
recognized members of
the Sesquicentennial
committee for a job
well done. Everyone
worked hard and put in
a lot of hours. It was ev-
ident; our 150th Birth-
day Celebration was a
success. Thank you
from the Jasper City

LETE o HEEITOR


Dear Editor:
I was proud and
pleased to see that
Cadet Lt. Col. Chad
Billington received a
Navy ROTC scholar-
ship. Once again the
High School JROTC
program has benefited
Hamilton County
youth. Not all get
JROTC members get
scholarships, but all get
a sense of worth, disci-
pline, and experience
working as a team,

Teachers,

Employees

of the

Year to be

honored

The reception to honor
Teachers and School-Re-
lated Employees of the
Year will be held at 4
p.m. on Tuesday, April
29, at the JRE Lee Com-
plex cafeteria, located on
4280 SW CR 152 in
Jasper.


which prepares them
for life.
When I was Juvenile
Court Judge I some-
times required juvenile
delinquent probation-
ers to participate in
JROTC, because I knew
and trusted the leader-
ship of the program.
The JROTC is too im-
portant a program to
our youth and our com-
munity and our Nation
to not fully fund and
support.


New Bethel AME
offers CNA class
New Bethel AME
Church is offering a Cer-
tified Nursing Assistant
(CNA) 40-hour exam
prep course. The fee will
include the exam, back-
ground check, books

and first aid training
will be available. Schol-
arships are also avail-
able.

po.com or call 386-209-
3327.


People who "think
outside the county" re-
alize there's a big world
outside Harpilton
County in which our
children and young
adults can make a dif-
ference. For many the
military is a way to ma-
ture, see the world, and
have an adventure. The
service to our nation is
important and as a con-
sequence one's college
education is paid for.
Being willing, able and


trained to stand in the
gap for other citizens is
worthy of high praise
and. financial benefit.
I look forward to the
day when perhaps an
Admiral Billington
comes home for a visit
and once again proves
that Hamilton County
young people are more
capable than most
when it comes to
achieving big things.

Bettye P.
Brown


i






Once upon a time in
the early morning of No-
vember 15, 1943, a little
bright-eyed baby girl
was born to Mary and
Nathan Peters in Port St.
Joe, Florida. They called
this beautiful fifth-born
child, Bettye. She re-
mained beautiful inside
and out throughout her
journey on earth. She
was accomplished in
many things but her
greatest 'asset was her
gift of love. She shared
this gift with the young,
old, rich and poor, and
she was most especially
a compassionate sister
and friend.
Mrs. Brown attended
public school in Port St.
Joe and continued her
education at Florida
A&M University where
she received her BS de-
gree in Elementary Edu-
cation. While attending
FAMU, she met the love
of her life, John W.
Brown, and they were
united in holy matrimo-
ny on January 9,1963.

From their love came
two beautiful girls,
Karen and Miriam. Mrs.
Brown was a wonderful
mother and she worked
closely with her hus-
band to instill strong
principles in them. She
encouraged them to ex-
cel in school and take
part in school activities.
She beamed when they
were cheerleaders, hon-
or roll students and
when they both graduat-
ed from college. Mrs.
Brown had completed
another chapter in her
story.
As a wife Mrs. Brown.
lived her own definition
of what it means to
"stand by your man."
She loved John Brown
with every ounce of
strength in her body and
we all knew this. "Don't
mess with my John," she
would often say and she
meant it. They enjoyed
the FAMU Alumni foot-
ball games and many ac-
tivities together. This
marriage was a story-
book romance that last-
ed for 45 years. She
loved him as much in
2008 as she did in 1963.
Theirs was a love story
that will be a testimony
to many for all times.
Mrs. Brown completes
yet another chapter in
her story.
For 34 years Mrs.
Brown stood as tall as
any giant in the class-
room. She was a teacher
who taught with her
heart every day. She'
motivated and inspired
her students to learn and
they wanted to get to
.Mrs. Brown's room. She
made exciting things
happen and the children
enjoyed the hugs, the
high fives and hand-
shakes. Many students
thought it was cool that
she was so knowledge-
able about sports, being
the wife of a coach. Even
when students left third
grade, they always went
by to check on Mrs.
Brown.
For the teachers, Mrs.
Brown was a role model


and mentor and she en-
joyed sharing what she
did. In the classroom
there was nothing too
hard for Bettye Brown.
Her philosophy was
"bring it own." For ad-
ministrators, one could
not ask for a better team
player. Mrs. Brown
went over and beyond
motivating, inspiring
and supporting the total
,program. She never re-
fused to help or fill in
wherever she was need-
ed to make things better.
For parents, she was
open-minded and took
the time to communicate
with them, becoming a
part of their families.
The educational family
notes that the definition
for teacher is Mrs. Bettye
P. Brown. Yet another
chapter is completed in
the story.
Sister Brown was a
servant at New Bethel
A.M.E. Church in Jasper
and she loved the Lord.
She enjoyed working as
a church steward, teach-
* ing Sunday School and
other duties given to
her. Her role as servant
became more apparent
when her ailments
would bother her. Sister
Brown did not complain
or leave her post. She
would stand up' and
usher, sitting only for a

Counselor's Corner


By Paula G. Williams
Congratulations to all
Sigma Delta Sweetheart
participants and cheer-
leaders for the 2008-2009
school year. All of you
are winners because you
took the time to try.
Good luck to our stu-
dents who will be partic-
ipating in the Teen Sum-
mit this week at Camp
Blanding. We know it
will be a great experi-
ence.
Parents of seventh
graders should have re-
ceived an information
flyer on Monday regard-
ing the upcoming class
trip to the Florida Muse-
um of Natural History
in Gainesville. It was
sent home on Monday; if
you did not receive it
contact the school. Per-
mission slips should be
returned by Thursday,
May 1.
On Tuesday, sixth
graders at Central,
North and South Hamil-
ton Elementary Schools
received information
flyers regarding the
HCHS Seventh Grade
Orientation set for
Thursday, May 1. If you
did not get this informa-
tion, contact your child's
school. Families are en-
couraged to review this
information with the
students.
We hope our senior
class will enjoy Grad
Night on Friday, April
25.
In the mentor spot-
light this week are Imo-
gene Bullock and her
partner, Brittany Bailey.


Brittney said, "I came
to this school from Jack-
sonville and I really did-
n't care if I passed or not.
It was a game and I
wanted to play. Mrs.
Bullock reached out to
me and told me I was a
pretty girl, and I had no
business carrying on like
I was. She talked to me
everyday and I started
listening to her. Ms.
Williams was getting on
to me each day too and I
decided I wanted to do
better. Now I am being a
good student and I like
having a mentor."
Mrs. Bullock said,
"The mentoring oppor-
tunity leads to a pur-
poseful and meaningful
relationship with stu-
dents. It is wonderful
having a sense of be-
longing and having a
student feel that he or
she can trust and con-
fide in you. My partner
knows she can talk to
me and I will always lis-
ten to her side and take
it from there. I am so
proud of Brittany's over-
all improvement and we
are going to make this a
successful year."
Come by room #127 at
Hamilton County High
School if I can be of as-
sistance to you or don't
hesitate to call me at' 792-'
6540 or email me at
Williams_p2@firn.edu.

children in an awesome
way every day!

Trustees vote to suspend intercollegiate athletics


By Submitted by NFCC
College Advancement
With obvious reluc-
tance, members of the
North Florida Commu-
nity College District
Board of Trustees voted
unanimously to discon-
tinue intercollegiate ath-
letic programs for the
2008-2009 school year
due to anticipated bud-
get reductions. The vote
came during the board
t meeting April 15.
"It was an agonizing
decision but the College
had no other option giv-
en the budget reductions
we are facing," Presi-
dent Morris G. Steen Jr.
said. "I was here in 1960
when the first athletic
teams were established,
so I, more than most,
have a deep appreciation
of athletics. It breaks my
heart to be here at the


closing of the programs.

Administrators antici-
pate a revenue reduction
of more than $590,000
next year. The athletic
budget was $473,773 of
NFCC's $8.9 million to-
tal budget for 2007-2008.
Vice President of Acade-
mic Affairs John
Grosskopf said that the
move protected the core
mission of the college -
teaching and learning -
in tight financial times.
NFCC has three inter-
collegiate teams -
women's fastpitch soft-
ball, women's basket-
ball, and men's baseball.
Sixty-two athletes com-
prised the teams this
year, six from the NFCC
service district. The Sen-
tinel baseball team is
currently among the top
ten in state polls.


Grosskopf said that
the college would offset
the loss of enrollment
due to athletics, approxi-
mately 5.7 percent of to-
tal full-time equivalent
(FTE) College enroll-
ment, with "FTE Regen-
eration Strategies."
These include increasing
scholarships for the ad-
ministrative assistant,
arts and music pro-
grams, broader outreach
to non-traditional stu-
dents and new initia-
tives to generate addi-
tional enrollment such as
an African-American
leadership program, fit-
ness and wellness center,
a summer dual enroll-
ment institute and a
"highly-developed re-
cruitment plan."
The focus is on in-
creasing enrollment
from within the six-


county NFCC district of
Hamilton, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor
counties.
Management also
identified an additional
$201,473 in necessary ex-
penditures for 2008-
2009, for expansion of.
,developmental.., educa-
tion programs, a GED
prep program, fit-
ness/wellness instruc-
tion, public safety func-
tions and faculty pay in-
creases.
NFCC administration
will present its final
2008-2009 budget pro-
posal for board approval
at the June 21 regular
meeting. For informa-
tion contact the NFCC
Office of College Ad-
vancement, 850-973-1606

Ida Daniels, Erma
Fields, Renelda McMil-
lian, and Phyllis Sim-
mons were our team

exercise bags filled with
prizes that included


weights, exercise balls,
exercise videos, stretch
bands, a free meal at the
Telford Hotel in White
Springs, and a free one

Blue or Green?


By Peggy Boston
Have you ever heard
the saying "If you al-
ways do what you've al-
ways done, then you'll
always get what you've
always gotten?"
I thought about that
long and hard when I
woke up this morning
with cuts, scrapes, bruis-
es and soreness literally,
from head to toe. Yes-
terday, I had planned a
simple 30 minute bicycle
ride along one of our
many trails in Hamilton
County.
Several years ago I
took an unknown trail -
not smart; with two
eight-year-olds even
less smart; and my then
two-year-old in the seat
attached to my bike the
least smart thing of all.
Adventurous I thought,
so did the kids. It turned
out more difficult than I
imagined and we were
lost in the woods, kind
of. All the trails are
marked, but to a novice
with no map or com-
pass, it truly could have
been dangerous. We
made it through, and at
the time I vowed never
to do that again. Never
say never.
I had a map this time
and a compass, no two-
year-old and a much
better bike for my 10-
year-old. We set out
with no water or sup-
plies on our bikes be-
cause we wouldn't be
gone very long. Two
hours later, remember, I
always say, it's the little
things that ,ount! Just a
small veer, in direction
can make a huge differ-.


ence in the outcome.
It was so fun, for a
while anyway. Thinking
the color blue (the trails
are all marked by color
coding) was soothing,
we took that trail (would
have been a good time to
study the map). It turns
out the color blue is not
soothing, but challeng-
ing.
The color green, yes, it
means go, and it also
means easy. Easy green
is a double track, flat,
padded with leaves, no
tree or palmetto root,
straight trail. Blue, not
so much, should have
been a clue when the
double track turned seri-
ously single and when I
say single, I mean trees
brushing either side, the
trail made for the fat tire
alone.
I do have to commend
the Florida Trail Associ-
ation (www.florida-
trail.org) for not only
clearly marking the
trails, having free maps
available online, but also
for keeping the' trails
clear of debris. Once
you're on a trail, you ei-
ther ride it to the end or
turn around.
If you don't know me,
let this statement be our
meeting turning
around is not an option!
You know the outcome,
but I won't spoil your
ride; find yourself, or
lose yourself, but don't
keep doing what you've
always done. Take to the
blue!
Signing off for now -

While you may know
that the Florida Folk
Festival is held at the
Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
tural Center State Park
on the last weekend in
May every year, did you
know that one of Fos-
ter's songs is played at
the opening of the Ken-
tucky Derby in
Louisville, Ken., on the
first Saturday in May
each year?
Foster's song, "My
Old Kentucky Home,"
has been played at the
track since the. early


1920's and later it be-
came a tradition for the
song to be played as the
horses make their way
to the starting gate. The
University of Louisville
band has played the
song almost every year
since 1936.
In 1982, Churchill
Downs created the
Stephen Foster Handi-
cap to honor the com-
poser. The race now has
a $750,000 purse, the
richest stakes at the,
Downs outside of the
Derby.

Sun often the culprit

in skin cancer cases


As many people are
well aware, overexpo-
sure to the sun can be
very harmful, even caus-
ing death in some in-
stances. Though it is not
the most common form
of cancer, melanoma, ac-
cording to Skin Cancer
Foundation, causes the
most deaths.
Fortunately, if detect-
ed early enough
melanoma is nearly 100
percent curable. Even
better, several steps can
be taken to lessen one's
risk of developing
melanoma.
Among' the most effec-
tive and easy steps is to
minimize one's expo-
sure to the sun. UVA
and UVB rays can both
be dangerous to the


skin, possibly even caus-
ing melanoma.
It's no coincidence that
skin cancer is more com-
mon among people who
live in areas where the
sun shines most, such as
Florida, Hawaii, or over-
seas in places such as
Australia. Fair-skinned
people should not just
avoid sun exposure, but
tanning beds as well.
Such beds increase a
person's exposure to the
same potentially harm-
ful UV rays that come
from overexposure to
the sun.
To learn your skin
type and sun risk, visit
the Skin Cancer Founda-
tion Web site at
www.skincancer.org.

Drive the

fight

against

child

abuse

with a

specialty

license

plate

All funds raised
through the sale of the
"Stop Child Abuse" spe-
cialty license plate in
Florida benefit children
and families through
child abuse prevention
programs that work to
end the cycle of abuse
for Florida's children.
Yet this plate ranks just
51st in sales and re-
newals of the state's
specialty license plate
sales.
"In the time it takes to
get in your car, fasten
your seatbelt and pull
out of your driveway,
the state child abuse
hotline receives another
call," said David Bundy,
President and CEO of
Children's Home Soci-
ety (CHS) of Florida, a
105-year-old organiza-
tion dedicated to break-
ing the generational cy-
cle of child abuse. "The
'Stop Child Abuse' plate
will help end the night-
mares of many children
by raising funds for
abuse prevention."
Monies raised
through the sale of the
"Stop Child Abuse" li-
cense plates benefit pre-
vention programs deliv-
ered by two statewide
organizations, CHS and
The Florida Network of
Children's Advocacy
Centers. CHS is a multi-
service not-for-profit
organization committed
to strengthening fami-
lies at risk for abuse and
neglect while promot-
ing safe, loving and sta-
ble homes for children.

Ten Ways to Help Prevent Child Abuse
* Be a nurturing parent.
Children need to know that they are special, loved and capable of fol-
lowing their dreams.
* Help a friend, neighbor or relative.
Being a parent isn't easy. Offer a helping hand to take care of the chil-
dren, so the parents) can rest or spend time together.
* Help yourself.
When the big and little problems of your everyday life pile up to the
point you feel overwhelmed and out of control take time out. Don't
take it out on your kid.
* If your baby cries...
It can be frustrating to hear your baby cry. Learn what to do if your baby
won't stop crying. Never shake a baby shaking a child may result in se-
vere injury or death.
* Get involved.
Ask your community leaders, clergy, library and schools to develop ser-
vices to meet the needs of healthy children and families.
* Help to develop parenting resources at your local library.
* Promote programs in school.
Teaching children, parents and teachers prevention strategies can help to
keep children safe.
* Monitor your child's television and video viewing.
Watching violent films and TV programs can harm young children.
* Volunteer at a local child abuse prevention program.
For information about volunteer opportunities, call 1.800.CHILDREN.
* Report suspected abuse or neglect.
If you have reason to believe a child has been or may be harmed, call
your local department of children and family services or you local police
department.


/ April is Child Abuse Prevention Month


History of National Child

Abuse Prevention Month


Increasing public
awareness of the need
to ensure the safety and
welfare of children led
to the passage of the
first Federal child pro-
tection legislation, the
Child Abuse Preven-
tion and Treatment Act
(CAPTA), in 1974. Con-
gress made a further
commitment in 1982 to
identifying and imple-
menting solutions to
child abuse and re-
solved that the week of
June 6-12, should be
designated as the first

National Child Abuse
Prevention Week.
The following year,
April was proclaimed
the first National Child
Abuse Prevention
Month. Since then,
child abuse and neglect
awareness activities
have been promoted
across the country dur-
ing April of each year.
The Office on Child
Abuse and Neglect
(OCAN) within the
Children's Bureau coor-
dinates Child Abuse
Prevention Month, pro-
viding information and
releasing updated na-
tional statistics about
child abuse and neglect
each April.
In 1989, the Blue Rib-
bon Campaign to Pre-
vent Child Abuse had
its early beginnings
when a Virginia grand-
mother tied a blue rib-
bon to the antenna of
her car as a way to re-


member her grandson
who had died as the re-
sult of child abuse. The
campaign has expand-
ed across the country,
and many wear blue
ribbons each April in
memory of those who
have died as a result of
child abuse.
In some communi-
ties, fundraisers are
held to support preven-
tion activities and treat-
ment facilities for vic-
tims, candlelight vigils
are held as a remem-
brance or pinwheels are
placed in a prominent
area to represent each
abused child. Child
Abuse Prevention
Month is a time for
communities across the
country to keep chil-
dren safe, provide the
support families need
to stay together, and
raise children and
youth to be happy, se-
cure and stable adults.

Every five minutes, a
child in Florida is abused
or neglected. More than
206,000 innocent children
in Florida suffered abuse
or neglect in 2006 the
consequences killed 171.
To raise awareness of and
fight this horrific, ongoing
problem, April has been
celebrated as National
Child Abuse Prevention
Month for more than 20
years. Child abuse and
neglect not only has a
lifelong impact on its
victims, but it also has a
staggering impact on the
entire community. Each
year, child abuse and
neglect costs the United
States $94 billion in direct
and indirect expenses. The-
horrific problem extends
beyond Florida. -
nationwide, four children
die each day from abuse
or neglect.

Creating 'portrait art' as family heirlooms has been an
ongoing passion for Richard and Sunshine Wright,
owners of Colonial Photography in Live Oak. Recently,
as part of their commitment to continual education in
art and business, the Wrights spent four days in Paris,
France, followed by an intensive two-day seminar.in
North Carolina with master photographers, Reg and
Jacqueline Mess of British Columbia, Canada.
The choice to travel to art museums in Paris was not
only to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary, but to
also continue the tradition of their mentor, World-
renown master photographer Jay Stock, who they
accompanied on visits to art and photography museums
during their five-year study course with him. "For years
I've studied the art of master painters in books," said
Sunshine. "Yet details, like the second umbrella in
Claude Monet's painting of 'The Luncheon,' are often!
lost within the small prints of a book. Viewing their life-
sized paintings in person has increased my appreciation
of their skill in preserving everyday life as works of art.
They are my inspiration when I'm digitally painting the
portraits of our clients."
The two-day seminar in North Carolina focused on
the art of serving the needs of clients while creating
custom portrait art. This seminar was unique because it
provided hands-on training and role-playing. "By sitting
in the client's chair and experiencing our services from
their perspective, we better understand how they feel
and are empowered to create a superior portrait while
serving them from our heart," said Sunshine.
During their tour of Versailles, Richard Wright was
impressed by how the king's palace was decorated with
life-sized paintings of his personal family rather than
landscapes. "When you think about it, 'The Luncheon'
is Monet's painting of his family playing in their yard,"
he remarked. "The works of art now hanging in
museums were originally personal portrait art gracing
the walls of family homes. That's why Colonial's line of
Signature Portrait Art is designed as personal custom
'wall d6cor.' Because your family is your masterpiece
and deserves to be preserved as a work of art."
Richard and Sunshine Wright are the owners of
Colonial Photography of Live Oak,

A Long Life Starts With a Healthy Lifestyle


As the aging process progresses, most men begin making
health a priority. But many of the health problems both
men and women encounter as they age are the result of
lifestyle choices they made when they were younger and
continued to practice as they got older. Simply put, what's
done to a body today will affect how it behaves tomorrow.
Fortunately, the human body has an amazing capacity to
recuperate, meaning it's never too late to make lifestyle
changes that can make a person's golden years more
healthy and enjoyable. While the term "lifestyle change"
can seem overwhelming, many of these changes are far
easier to put into practice than it might seem.
Watch your weight. Obesity levels have exceeded,
reached or are approaching all-time highs in many
developed nations. Obesity can be especially harmful to
adults approaching their senior years, as obesity increases
a person's risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke,
and heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things a
person can do to avoid the series of problems that men and
women can encounter as they get older. The Centers foi
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points out that
defining a healthy weight depends on a number of
individual factors. For example, age is a determining
factor, as a healthy weight for an individual at 45 might
not be considered healthy when that individual turns 60.
Because each person is unique, defining a healthy weight
is something that should be discussed on a case-by-case
basis with a physician. Even if a friend of the same age
and similar body type has been given a healthy weight, for
instance, this doesn't mean that's a healthy weight for all
people of that age and body type. Past health history and
physical activity level are significant factors in
determining a healthy weight, too.
Make dietary changes. To some, the thought of
changing their diet is an unwelcome one. Because food is
such a big part of most people's lives, this is often seen as
-the most difficult lifestyle change to make. However, a
series of subtle changes as opposed to a massive dietary
overhaul can do the trick.
While many people eat healthily during their three meals
per day, it's the in-between meals hours where diet often
suffers the most. Snacks high in saturated fat, such as
potato chips, can be very unhealthy. By switching snacks
to a serving of fruit, or vegetables, men and women can
ensure they're getting their recommended servings each
day, and may be reducing the risk of cancer and other
chronic diseases as a result. The majority of fruits and
vegetables are low in fat and calories, and also provide
essential vitamins and minerals. For those unsure of how
much fruit or vegetables they should be eating each day,
the CDC offers a fruits and vegetables calculator on its
Web site at www.cdc.gov.
Be more active. Becoming more physically active is
something many adults need to do..The CDC estimates
that 50 percent of American men and women do not get
enough physical activity to provide health benefits.
Physicians recommend 30 minutes of daily, moderate
physical exercise. While finding the time each day can be
a commitment, 30 minutes, the length of a typical .
television sitcom, really is not much time at all.


Daily exercise is a valuable tool for men and women looking to get
and stay healthier.

Those who haven't been active in a while need to ease back into being
physically active, perhaps starting with a daily walk on flat ground and
then gradually tailoring a routine that is more challenging and beneficial
as the body acclimates itself to daily activity. Again, because every
person is unique, it's best to consult a physician before beginning any
new exercise routine.
Recognize and deal. with stress. Stress can be very harmful to all
men and women. The negative side effects of stress are. both physical
and mental. Stress can lead to excess weight gain, which, as previously
mentioned, can increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, high
blood pressure, and diabetes. Mentally, excess stress affects mood,
which can negatively impact relationships with friends, family and
coworkers.
While stress is a fact of life for most, both in their professional and
private lives, it's important to recognize that stress can be very
detrimental. Though there are no guaranteed and foolproof ways to
reduce and manage stress, research has shown that exercise has proven
a reliable source of stress relief for many, people.

.^bid fOa Kn tw?
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 fai more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 436148-F
