Cuests of honor at a Baccalaureate service on
Wednesday, June I. at First Baptist Church
beginning at 6 p.m.
This service is being sponsored by the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which
cordially invites the community to attend.
The Baccalaureate service is traditionally
held the Sunday prior to graduation, but
because that date lands in the middle of
Memorial Day weekend, organizers feared low
turn-out. Instead, they encourage all graduates,
their families and friends to mark June 1 on
their calendars and make plans to attend.
Vacation Bible Schools begin...
The First Baptist Church of Jena will lead the
way for Vacation Bible Schools in the greater
community with classes slated June 13-17 from
6 until 8:30 p.m.
This year's theme is "Beach Blast" and the
motto is, "God is faithful." Pastor Vaughn
Famell notes that classes will stress that "God
keeps his promises, meets our needs, answers
our prayers and is always present." Times will
be set aside for crafts, play and supper.

Beck at 498-5766 or Farnell at 498-2190.

HI: LTIH NOTES
The Top 10 Screening Tests that Women
Can Do to Improve Their Health!
Getting the right screening tests at the right time is one of
the most important things women can do for their health.
1. Breast Cancer- Early detection of breast cancer greatly
improves odds for survival. Mammograms, self-breast
exam and physician breast exams are the best defenses for
identifying masses early
2. Cervical Cancer- Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the major
risk factor for cervical cancer. Pap tests can find abnormal
precancerous cells on the surface of the cervix so they can be
removed before they turn into cancer.
3. Osteoporosis Screening Tests- Dual Energy X-ray
Absorptiometry (DEXA) scans can measure bone mineral
density and detect osteoporosis before fractures occur and
help predict the risk of future bone fractures.
4. Skin Cancer- Early treatment of melanomas, basal cell and
squamous cell skin cancers is important. A skin exam by a
physician should be part of a routine cancer checkup.
5. High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)- The risk for
hypertension increasess with ape Ifleft untreated itcan lead-
to severe complications without any symptoms, including an
aneurysm. heart disease. stroke, and kidney failure.
6. Cholesterol Levels- High cholesterol increases the risk of
developing heart disease as well as hardening and narrowing
of the arteries. Over time it can lead to heart attack and stroke,
especially for diabetics, and people who smoke.
7. Type 2 Diabetes- One-third of the people in the U.S. with
diabetes don't know they have it It can lead to heart disease,
stroke, kidney disease, blindness and nerve damage.
8. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)- HIV spreads
through blood and some body secretions. There is still no cure
or vaccine. But. early treatment with anti-HIV medications may
help the body's immune system fight the virus.
9. Colorectal Cancer- Colorectal cancer ranks third for women
after lung and breast cancer. A colonoscopy is a common
screening test for colorectal cancer.
10. Glaucoma- Glaucoma is a condition that can result in
blindness due to damage to the optic nerve.
Learn more about the individualized screenings we
recommend for YOU based on your age and risk factors!

Florida Division of Forestry
The economic damage
caused by the southern pine
beetle in the Southeast over the
last few decades has prompted
the USDA Forest Service to
issue a series of grants to state
forestry agencies to reduce the
risk of pine stands owned by
Risk factors for a southern
pine beetle outbreak include
a dense understory, an
overstocked stand and
having loblolly or slash pine
The Florida Division of
Forestry (DOF) has received
a grant for 2011 to help
landowners with the costs
associated with reducing
these risk factors. In order to
accomplish this the Division
of Forestry has opened an
application period for this
program. The registration
period opened May 23 and will
continue until June 27.
The program includes
incentive payments for
landowners conducting a first
pulpwood thinning on their
property, and partial cost
sharing for prescribed burning,
thinning and planting of
longleaf pine. All practices
must cover 10 acres or more
and total reimbursement is
capped at $10,000.
For more information on
the program or to submit an
application, please contact
the DOF at (850) 838-2286.
