In many communities across
the country, volunteers busy
themselves gearing up for
Christmas and the preparing for
the anticipated needs of less
fortunate children.
Here at home, the task of
ensuring gifts will be on hand for
all our children has been the
driving force of Hamilton Count)y
resident Anne Hall. For her
fourth year, Anne coordinated a
"Christmas Love Tree" program
to do just that.

Refuse to be a


victim in 2009


By Ken Brookins
Chief of Police
White Springs

Well, 2009 is finally
here. I hope this report
finds everyone in good
spirits and looking
forward to a new year.
To start my report off I
would like to thank the
Special Events
Committee, The Stephen
Foster Park, Town Hall,
My fellow officers with
the police department
and all the volunteers that
made the Festival of
Lights and Breakfast with
Santa such a huge
success. The whole town
should pat itself on the .
back for a job well done.
You would not believe
the compliments and
gratitude I got this year
on both events. Again,
thank you all.
The town was pretty
quiet through the
holidays with nothing
serious to report except
for an incident one of our
part time officers got
involved in. Officer Kelly
attempted to check a
suspicious vehicle on
Christmas Eve only to
have it flee. After the
vehicle entered Suwannee
County the chase was
cancelled. The Live Oak
Police Department
discovered the vehicle
later on the next day and
found it had been stolen.
You can bet there was no
good reason for the
vehicle to be prowling
our streets in the middle
'of the night. I commend
our part time officers who
are a valuable part of our
team and obviously do a
good job for us.
While I'm in the
commending mood I


would like to mention
one of our previous crime
victims. This young lady
refuses to just lie down
and give up. Even after
several months have
pissed since she was
burglarized, she still
prowls the pawnshops
looking for her property -
and last week it paid off.
She recovered a ring
worth a considerable
.amount of money and
provided me with a new
suspect in the case.' This
is a prime example of the
"refuse to be a victim"
attitude we are going to
all need in order to
survive times to come.
Before closing I want to
pass on a new Internet
fraud that came to my
attention by one of our
citizens last week. You,
may receive an e-mail
from a, well-known
company asking for
online sales reps or
something similar. The
company will seem to
check you out and then
send you a check telling
you to keep ten percent
and send the rest to them
in order to check your
ability to understand
directions and follow
through with
assignments. Needless to
.say, the check is a fake
and by the time your
bank tells you this, you
have sent your money to
the scammer.
Well that's it for this
month. Please contact me
if you have any concerns
or suggestions.

The program, while it's been in
existence for many years, had been
abandoned some time back.
Realizing the great need in our
community, Anne revived it,
soliciting aid from volunteers in
Jasper; Jennings and White Springs.
"We helped around 130 children
this year and hope to see that
number grow for next year," she
said. "I wish I could've been at each
home to see their little faces on
Christmas morning. Hopefully we
can get an earlier start on the next
Holiday Season. with a 'Christmas
in July' fundraiser kick-off. That'll
allow us to help more children. We
are always looking for more
volunteers and financial backing."
Participants' names were
submitted by various members of
the community and after
verification of their need, the
children were placed on the list. -
Sponsors of the program,
including Jasper Foodway, GTE
Federal Credit Union of both Jasper
and White Springs, and Stormants
Grocery Store, placed trees,
covered in gift tags, in their
businesses. The tags identified a
gift and an identifying member
number. The numbers were held in
confidence and correlated to a
specific child. Those pulling the tag
and making the purchases never
knew the name of the recipient of
the gift. Each child had six gift tags
posted 'a pair of slacks, a shirt, a
Bible or story book, and three,
others gifts that a family member,
suggested based on the child's
personal requests.
"I'd like to express a special
thanks to Beth Burnham in
Jennings, for all her help," said
Hall. "We couldn't find a location
for our tree, so she took the tags
and was able to distribute them
throughout local churches and the
needs were met! I'd also like to
thank those in White Springs who
served, Mr. & Mrs. Timmy
Williams, Mr. & Mrs. Byron
Ogburn and Lori Stormant."
In addition to the program
receiving numerous personal
donations from
individuals,
"_. monetary
contributions were
also made by PCS,
Mainstreet Hamilton
County Inc., the
Kiwanis Club, H &
R Block, Hamilton
County Pink Ladies,
Hamilton County
Elected Officials,
County Judge Sonny
Scaff and Jasper
SAssembly of God.

Tyre family land still a target

and maintained boat
ramp near Pott's Springs
by a private logging
company for the
removal of "dead-head"
logs. According to the
Clint Roberts, the logger
making the request, the
logs would not touch
the ramp but rather
would be tethered to a
boat and then set down
on a' trailer in the Wafeter""
rather than pulled onto
land. The commission
rejected the request
unanimously, noting
that public lands could
not be used for personal
gain.
In other business, the
board held discussion
on whether to appeal
Judge John Peach's
decision regarding the
Tyre family's fence on
65th Lane. In 2008, '
Peach ruled in favor of
the Tyre Family. In the
more than two-year
battle, according to


arged in
*


Clerk of Court Greg
Godwin, the county has
expended over $32,000
in studies and legal fees
in an attempt to force
the Tyre Family to move
their current fence and
extend the 20 plus foot
easement they have
already conceded for the
roadway. During the
course of the meeting
comments from the
public became heated at
times, as residents
voiced their objections
to the county spending
more money on an issue
that a judge had already
decided. The issue is
back before the
commissioners and the
county attorney has
requested a one-hour
private meeting with his
clients before the Jan. 20
regular board meeting
to discuss the feasibility
of continuing the fight
with an appeal. The
board will then make a
vote during the meeting
at 6 p.m.

Dog fighting on the rise


in Florida, say authorities


Continued From Page 1A

reports of dog fighting have been
received by the Jasper Police
Department, the location of the
events makes it hard for officers to
close in before being spotted.
Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum has announced that
Floridians can now report animal
fighting and be eligible for a reward
of up to $5,000 by calling The
Humane Society of the United
States' animal fighting tip line at
877-TIP-HSUS (847-4787), according
to a press release from Tallahassee.
"Animal fighting is a cruel and
criminal behavior often associated
with gang activity and other
violence," said McCollum in a press
release. "Now Floridians will have
an easy, anonymous way to help
make their neighborhoods safer and


perhaps receive a substantial
reward for their efforts."
Once tips are authenticated,
investigators work with law
enforcement agencies to inspect,
arrest and prosecute animal
fighters. Callers' identities are
protected, and if a caller's tip leads
to the arrest and prosecution of an
animal fighter, the caller becomes
eligible for a reward of up to $5,000
from The Humane Society of the
United States (HSUS).
The toll-free tip line was first
established in Georgia by The
HSUS and Atlanta-based corporate
security firm Norred & Associates
Inc. Because of its success, and with
the support of Florida's Attorney
General, the tip line has been
expanded to help combat dog
fighting and cockfighting in
Florida.

News from the County Agent's Desk... I --


By Allen B. Tyree

The 9th Annual Flori-
da Bull Test sale will be
on Saturday, January 10,
2009 in Marianna. There
are 65 bulls from Florida,
Alabama, Georgia, and
North Carolina to be
sold. Forty (40) Angus, 2
Charolais, 2 Limflex, 1
Santa Gertrudis, 7
SimAngus, and 12 Sim-
mental bulls born be-
tween August and De-
cember. of 2007 will be
sold. The group of bulls
averaged 3.40 pounds of
gain per day. The range
was from 1.86 to 4.87
pounds. The diet was
designed to ensure that
bulls consumed suffi-
cient, forage to reduce
any incidence of meta-
bolic problems, such as
bloat. The bulls should'
adjust well to forage-
based diets. ,
Only bulls meeting
specific benchmarks are
eligible for sale. Bulls are
inspected for structural
soundness and disposi-
tion, and must pass a
breeding soundness
exam to qualify for the
sale.
For more information
on the sale, visit the
website at http;'/ / flbull-
test.ifas.ufl.edu., or call
me at the Extension Of-
fice (ph:792-1276).
Domestic demand for
field corn is forecast to
be down in 2009. Some
ethanol plants have
closed and plans for
building new facilities
have been cancelled due
to overcapacity andlow-


er fuel prices. Field corn
acreage is expected to be
down due to lower mar-
ket prices and high input
costs in 2009. As far as I
know, the wood ethanol
plant near Savannah and
some other cellulosic
ethanol plants are "still
one line."
, Keep abreast of the
new Farm Bill. It has
many changes that have
not been in previous
year's 'Farm Bills.
Tom Visack, former
Iowa governor, has been
selected by President-
Elect Obama to be the
Secretary of Agriculture.
He appears to be getting
good reviews from agri-
cultural and environ-
mental groups. At this
point, it's expected that
he will be confirmed by
the Senate.
According to USDA,
farmer's share of retail
food prices still remains
at only 20%. It's not ex-
pected to go up any in
the future.
We have legume for-
age demonstration plots
at the Research Center
(Experiment Station )
near Live Oak. The uni-
versity is "looking" at
which legume produces
the 'most forage. We're
also looking at, which
legume the deer like
best, and which legume
produces the most nitro-
gen to be used on the fol-
lowing' season's corn
crop. I'll report on the re-
sults in the spring.

stration plots on the

clover did the best of all
the legumes I planted. It
tolerates drier and
sandier soils better than
other legumes. The plots
reseeded themselves for
many years. The stand
actually got better over
time.
The 14th Annual beef
cattle management cal-
endar will be available at
the Extension Office in
mid-January. Come by
and pick up one.
Home gardeners, re-
member to water cold
sensitive plants that are
in containers or in the
ground, during late
morning to noon time.
This will help insulate
the plant's roots. Mois-
ture retains heat. Air
pockets in the" soil do
not. This heat in the soil
that, is moist will help
keep the plant warmer at
night, and in the early
morning hours. Re-
member, wateiing dur-
ing the mid-day hours
during winter helps
your plants make it
through the winter sea-
son.
January to mid-Febiu-
ary is a good time to
plant woody plants
-trees, shrubs, and
woody vines. It is the
best time of year to plant
bare root plants.
A new disease has hit
our native and state tree,
the sabal or cabbage
palm. A disease from
"across the sea" has.en-
tered Florida and is tak-
ing a toll on them. An in-
sect is carrying the dis-
ease from tree to tree.
There is no good control
of the disease yet.
I have been asked
about cold hardy Sat-
suma cultivars (vari-
eties) we can grow in
our area. There are 3
cultivars recommended
'Oware', 'Brown Se-
lect', and 'Kimbrough.'
As most of you are
aware, state agencies
are expecting budget
cuts. UF-IFAS and
FAMU (both institu-
tions have state agricul-
tural programs), and
the State Extension Ser-
vice are expecting some
cuts in programs. We
will know more about
these cuts after the Leg-
islature meets in special
session in January.
There will be a
Woody Biomass Work-
shop on Wednesday,
Jan. 28, 9 a.m. to 11:55

Notes from SHE Principal Waylon Bush


Recently, South Hamilton Elemen-
tary School recognized Veterans
from the White Springs area. The
veterans were honored with a lun-
cheon at South Hamilton and later
with a parade. There are many peo-
ple to thank for this event. Mrs. De-
lores Howell is the sponsor of this
event and we are so proud that one
of our staff has her heart with the
Veterans. It reminds the students,
staff, and community, of the sacrifice
of these great men and women have
made to the liberty of this great na-
tion.
We also thank PCS and Stormant's
Grocery of White Springs, Mrs. Jan


Hunter, the SHE cafeteria staff, and
SHE students, parents, and staff for
their efforts in this event. Mr. Rob
Wolfe, PCS employee, was kind
enough to serve as photographer and
we thank him. The Town of White
Springs, the White Springs Police
and Fire Departments, and so many
others helped in so many ways.
Most of all, we want to thank the
brave men and women of the White
Springs community, of Hamilton
County, and those all across this
great country who have sacrificed so
much to preserve "one Nation under
God, indivisible, With Liberty and
Justice for all."

YMCA and Hamilton Health
Department hosting Get
Lean Challenge


Submitted by: Carolyn
Aired
While not in the worst
shape in the country,
Georgians and Floridi-
ans rank consistently in
the top 10 for having the
most overweight resi-
'dents, according to the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention.
In order to combat the
winter weight blues and
help prepare Hamilton
County for a healthier
lifestyle, the YMCA,
along with Hamilton
County Health Depart-
ment is introducing a
community-wide initia-
tive to lose unwanted
pounds after the first of
the year, the 2009 Team
Lean competition.
This program was ex-
tremely successful in
Thomasville and in Bain-
bridge over the last two
years, and we know
Hamilton County will
embrace the challenge as
well.
. The challenge will take,
place over 10 weeks,_be-
ginning Jan. 8, and is
open to all member-s ;6.
the 'community ages
and over. Participants do
not have to be members
of the Y; this, is a commu-
nity program, not just a
YMCA program. The Y,
as well as the Hamilton
County Health Depart-
ment is hosting weekly
weigh-ins each Thursday,
through the competition
that is mandatory for all
participants.
Weight loss will be
measured in percentages,
not pounds. For example,
if you have a 150-pound
person who loses 15
pounds, they've lost 10
percent of their weight.


We don't want to embar-
rass anyone and. don't
want to emphasize
pounds. This competition
is all about becoming
healthier, and we want to
encourage participants,
not discourage them.
The challenge is open
to both teams and indi-
viduals. Teams will con-
sist of five members, and
team members are sub-
ject to being "voted off"
the team if they don't lose
at least half a pound each
week of the competition.
The entry fee is $50 per
person, and cash prizes
will be presented at the
end of the competition.
Larry Tobey, the
YMCA Director is hop-
ing to at least surpass
Thomasville and Bain-
bridge with the number
of participants, as both
cities' programs were ex-
tremely successful.
Tom Everett, branch di-
rector of the Everett-Mil-
ton YMCA in
Thomasville, said more
than 1,200 participated
last year, and they're de-
termined,to .increase,the
event even more this
year.
Teams are encouraged
to be creative with their
names to help make this a
fun competition, and or-
ganizers are hopeful that
area businesses and
community based organi-
zations will help sponsor
employee teams.
To register or for addi-
tional information con-
tact either Carolyn Alred
at Hamilton County
Health Department 792-
1414X233 or Health

ty Extension Office 792-

Creating safe learning environments for our children


FAMILY FEATURES


n 2003, a student's
discovery of 8.5 fluid
ounces of elemental
mercury in an unlocked
chemistry cabinet forced a high
school in Washington, D.C., to
close for 35 days. The cleanup
cost more than $1 million.
In August 2008, a school .
janitor spilled two gallons of. : :. -
hydrochloric acid at the Edison
Technical and Occupational J..
Education Center in Rochester, .'
N.Y. One employee inhaled the ,
fumes and had to be taken to ;.......--
the hospital for evaluation.
From elementary school
maintenance closets to .high
school chemistry labs, outdated,
unknown or unneeded amounts
of hazardous or inappropriate
chemicals are found in K-12
schools across the nation, poten-
tially putting students and staff
at risk.
Learning about the chemistry in the world around us is essen-
tial to a well-rounded education, yet many lab chemicals, if
mismanaged, can be hazardous to students and school staff.
Ceramics kilns are sometimes'vented.directly into schools,
releasing carbon'monoxide, metal, fumes and ozone. The use
of flammable and volatile products by maintenance staff can
pose fire safety issues and affect the indoor air quality.
Other potential hazards found in public schools have
included:
cyanide salts
water reactive metals such as sodium, lithium and
potassium
arsenic
flammable materials such as paint thinner
radioactive materials such as thorium nitrate and uranium
tetrachloride
In addition to the presence of hazardous materials, more risk
comes when school staff is not properly trained in the hazards
associated with them, and where there is a lack of protective
equipment or health and safety practices.
With over 97,000 public schools and more than 63 million
students and teachers, the potential for problems is becoming'
clearer.
That's why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and
the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Responsible Care
companies are working with local school districts to clean out
our schools and help them to properly manage their chemicals.


The Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign
The Schools Cheriical Cleanout Campaign, known as SC3, creates a safer learning
environment by helping schools remove improperly stored or outdated chemicals,
prevent unnecessary chemical accumulations and raise awareness of safety
precautions.
SC3 programs around the country are making a big impact. To date, SC3 programs
have:
cleaned out over 650 schools, affecting more than 685,000 students
removed more than 100,000 pounds of chemicals
trained over 1,800 teachers and administrators
"ACC is pleased to be a part of this important initiative," said Cal Dooley, ACC's
President and CEO. "ACC members and Responsible. Care Partners have the know-
ledge to help schools manage chemicals responsibly and are uniquely positioned to
work with federal and state partners to teach school staff how to implement effective
and efficient chemical management."
Working together, the government and experienced private industry partners of
SC3 are helping achievesustainable chemical management programs by working
with schools to:
provide training on planning and budgeting for chemical purchases, management
and disposal
n establish a chemical management plan
conduct periodic chemical inventories to identify hazards
train school representatives on how to establish environmentally preferable pur-
chasing policies
encourage schools to use the smallest amounts of the least hazardous chemicals
offer hazardous chemicals management
and safety training for school staff


If you have concerns about the chemical
safety of your 'local school, there are things
you can do. Parents can help their school
create a healthy learning environment by:
working as part of a team with school
administrators, teachers, and others
to identify priority issues and address
environmental health issues.
identifying and recommending com-
munity partners who may be able to
lend expertise to address the issue of
chemicals in school.
evaluating the chemicals (i.e., art
supplies, cleaners, etc.) you contribute
to the school environment for risk and
necessity
Chemical cleanout and prevention programs
prevent fires and spills, protect the environ-
ment and save money. But most importantly,
they protect our children and the people who
work with them every day.

for college financial aid
for the upcoming school
year. Use the downtime.
during your holiday
break to prepare and
you'll be on your way
to financing your edu-
cation. Apply online at
the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid
(FAFSA) website as ear-
ly as possible beginning
Jan. 1. To save time,
FAFSA recommends
you first: Gather the
documents you need.
Print a FAFSA on the
Web Worksheet. Plan
how to sign your FAF-
SA. Apply for a PIN
(personal identification

igibility for federal stu-
dent aid. Note impor-
tant deadlines.
Federal financial aid
is available for students
attending four-year,
two-year, public or pri-
vate, career or trade
schools. The aid is in-
tended to cover school


expenses such as tu-
ition, room and board,
books and other sup-
plies, and transporta-
tion. Most students re-
ceive the aid because of
financial need.
Students can also re-
ceive financial aid in the
form of grants, loans or
work study. Grants in-
clude Pell Grants and
Federal Supplemental
Educational Opportuni-
ty Grants. Loans in-
clude Federal Stafford
Loans (made to stu-

(made to parents).
There are also direct
loans, Perkins Loans,
and the Federal Family
Education Loan. Work-
study programs provide
jobs, usually on cam-
pus, so students can
help pay for educational
expenses.

ding day.
In Holland a pine tree is planted out-
side of the newlyweds' home for good
luck and fertility.
A law in 1775 said a wedding was not
legal if the bride wore makeup during
the ceremony.
Wedding and engagement rings are
worn on the fourth finger of the left
hand because it was long believed a vein
ran from that finger directly to the heart.
Ancient Greek and Romans said a
wedding veil protected the bride from
evil spirits. It has been a tradition to
wear a veil ever since.
The term "tie the knot" comes from
Roman times when the bride wore a gir-
dle ties in knots that the groom was lat-
er able to untie. Some also believe it
refers to the knots of rope that were tied
to form the marriage bed.

Tough times force some to give up pets


1y Lisa Perkins
CNHI News Service

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. More and more pet
bwners-have been faced with a heartbreaking
dilemma during difficult economic times -
confronting the reality that losing a home or job may
also.meat having to give up a beloved cat or dog.
"There have been a few really sad cases," said
Mike Cherry, executive director of the Cherryland
Humane Society Whh related the story of a woman
who had boon living in a van with her catty and dogs,
until she came to the realization that she just couldn't
take care of them anymore.
"Some people have simply lost their jobs and don't
have the source of income to take care of their pets,"
said Cherry, noting that the local humane society has
seen a more than 50 percent increase in their pet
population over the past year.
"We would hear about people giving up their pets
for economic reasons sporadically in the past, but it
is now becoming more and more common," Cherry
said. .- .
Other animal rescue organizations have seen a rise
in surrendered pets as well.
. "We are getting tons of calls on a daily basis, from


people that are hurting so bad and can't feed or take
care of their pet," said Melissa Scott, director of
Petsafe Rescue Alliance %%here animals are placed in
foster homes until adoptive families can be found.
The organization that usually provides services to
sick, injured or at-risk animals is finding an
increased need for placement of healthy family pets.
"People are barely able to put food on the table for
themselves. It is hard enough to lose a house, but
having to give up your best friend is devastating,"
said Dee Sheldon. canine'coordinator for Petsafe.
"A wpman that was working two jobs had to give
up her 9-year-old cocker spaniel that she just
couldn't afford to keep anymore." Sheldon said.
. Ed Hickey, animal control manager for Grand
Traverse County, says they have also seen an
increase in stray and abandoned animals.
"For the first time we have experienced people that
are homeless and need to surrender their dog,"
Hickey said. I
Northern Michigan's increased need for pet
surrenders is not unique.
"It transcends any local boundaries; other Humane
organizations are going through the same thing.
These economic problems go out and touch e\ ery
aspect of our society," Cherry said.

populations as the country's economic condition has worsened.

"We are getting

daily basis, from
people that are
hurting so bad and

care of their pet,"

Exercise Tips for Seniors Starting Anew


Babies today have it better than those that came .before them. That's
because, according to a 2007 report from the U.S. Census Bureau, a baby
born today has a lot more life to look forward to than one born 50 years
ago. A child born today can expect to be around for the next 78 years,
whereas one born half a century ago had a projected life span of nine
fewer years.
While some might suggest this longer life expectancy is a product of
people taking better care of themselves, others might say it's due in large
part to advances in medicine.
Whatever the reason, it's obvious more and more seniors are living longer
lives, and many are hoping to add even more miles to their odometers.
One way to do just that is through exercise. But for seniors who haven't
hit the gym in a while, starting an exercise regimen can be an intimidating,
if not confusing, experience. Seniors looking to make exercise a regular
part of their lives should consider the following tips along the way.
* Seek medical advice: The first thing you should do, even before lacing
up your first sneaker, is visit a doctor. Each individual is different, and a
doctor will let you know what you, personally, should and should not be
doing as you begin a newexercise regimen. In addition, a checkup could
reveal problems you might not be aware of.
* Recognize limitations: If you have not lifted a weight or run a step in 20
years, you're not going to be able to simply pick up where you left off.
Recognizing your physical limitations is paramount to the success of your
new program. For seniors, the point of exercise is not to become a pinup
guy or girl, but to get healthy or maintain existing health. Set realistic
goals and acknowledge what you can and cannot do.
Choose an enjoyable program: Choose an exercise program you know
you will enjoy. An enjoyable program will encourage participation and
increase the likelihood that you'll stick with it. Whether it's a daily walk
with friends or a structured workout at the local gym with a trainer, the
program you choose should be one you look forward to, an-dnot one you
see as a necessary evil.
* Take it easy: Whenever a new program is started, be it by a teenager,
professional athlete or senior citizen, the temptation to overdo it is '
omnipresent. However, flying out of the gates is a great way to get hurt,
particularly f you do'ot yet know your physical limitations. Take it slow
as you begin workout,i and miia a daily journal of what you dd"dt'& .."..
beginning. That way, should you encounter any aches or pains, you can
always look at the journal or share it with your physician or trainer to
determine what might be the root of the problem. As you grow
accustomed to physical activity, you can then make adjustments to your
routine accordingly.
* Do your'homework on facilities: You may, especially if you are retired,
prefer to workout during the mid-morning hours when kids are in school
and working professionals are at the office. That can make choosing a gym
easier for you than it is for students or professionals.
However, when looking for the right facility, do your homework and find a
gym that has all that you want. Some gyms, for example, heavily
emphasize weight training, and don't offer other amenities such as
racquetball courts or a swimming pool. Find a gym that best fits your
needs. Many gyms offer free passes for up to a week so prospective
customers can get a better grasp of
what the gym has to offer. Take -- .-
advantage of this common practice Bll hil IlU-Ipj
when choosing a facility. H U
* Make stretching a regular part of diId
your regimen: Young or old, REHABILITATION SERVICES
stretching is an integral part of any, Sandy Laxton, PTA

is happy to announce the addition of the

Dr. ConnieSteele BioMeridian Unit
This new stale-of-the art assessment tool is used for overall health and wellness. The BioMeridian Unit uses
bioelectrical impedance measurements (BIM) to measure the electrical conductivity between specific points
on the body by creating a "circuit" and then measuring the flow of electricity between those points. This type of
testing has been used for many years in the medical field Examples would be EKG's and EEG's used to
measure heart and brain function. There,is substantial scientific information supporting BIM testing.
This unit is designed to measure 58 different electrical "circuits" in the-body related to specific organs and
systems. It uses points on the hands and feet. It is npn-invasive, safe and painless. Your measurements'are
then compared against a database of over 1.5 million tests to identify areas of your body that have moved
away from the norm. With that powerful information the BIM assessment software will assist Dr. Steele in
effectively formulating a comprehensive support program that includes detailed recommendations for an
optimal supplementation regimen customized to your specific needs. Our goals is to get you feeling well and
functioning well using chiropractic adjustments, nutritional support, and teaching you how to eat well.
