According to Sheriff
.Carson McCall, on Jan. 29,
the Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office continued
its "Crack Up" Drug Oper-
ation by using a. local
street dealer to purchase
crack cocaine in Suwan-
nee County. The deal
started on the streets of
Mayo and traveled to Live

in inventory.
-According to the report
from the LCSO, Sheriff
McCall contacted Suwan-
nee County Sheriff Tony
Cameron and advised him
of a controlled drug deal
crossing over into Suwan-
iee County. The two
agencies then joined
forces to take down a larg-
er. crack operation.-
: Information from the
Sheriff's Office revealed that.
after the controlled purchase
was completed, a search

SAbandoned Mercy
Mercy according to Webster is, ...compassion or forbear-
Sance shown especially to an offender... When Jonah com-
muned with God from the whale's belly he said, they thai
observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy (Jonah 2:8)
Today, as in Noah's day (Matthew 24:37) the Lord is ex-
b tending mercy to mankind. In Noah's time He bare with
" their folly 120 years before He sent the flood upon the
earth (Genesis 6:3 all that was in the dry land died Gen-
esis 7:22).
Idolaters (worshippers of false gods) in Jonah's day took
Jehovah's extension of mercy lightly. They worshipped
'the creations of their hands instead of the True and Living
God. Many today are, fin reality, doing the same thing. In-
stead of worshipping gods of man's choo-ing tlhe\ wor-
ship 'thing'! Things to be bought. thini~gT i Becheved
things to impress and the list could go on-and-on. Materi-
alism is the god of the U.S.! While many are bowing at the
a, ltar of this god they ...forsake their own mercy
God extended his mercy while he commissioned Noal
I-
to announce the impending judgment over a period of 12C
years before the flood. It has been approximately 2,00C
years since the New Testament revealed the Lord's 2nd
Coming and The Judgmentto come (Revelation 20:11-15)
The Bible states that no one knows when He will come
back except the Father (Matthew 24:36 Watch out for
charlatans who set dates/times) but it is about 2,000 years
closer then it was! You don't know how much longer God
will continue to extend His mercy to you. Are you ready
to meet Jesus?

Farmers can benefit

under new program

by providing

bird habitat
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is encouraging north Florida farmers to im-
prove quail habitat and providing compensation for those
farmers who do so, under a federal program initiated last
year.
The program, CP33 Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds,
pays farmers to not mow or harrow the native grasses and
brush that border their fields and instead allow it to re-
main natural. These bobwhitee buffers" provide much-
needed habitat for quail, songbirds and other small ani-
mals.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), working
through local Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices, will en-
roll up to 250,000 acres nationwide for the Northern Bob-
white Quail Habitat Initiative. Florida'has been designat-
ed for 2,800 acres.
The initiative is part of the USDA's Conservation Re-
serve Program, which compensates farmers who set aside
sensitive areas to protect water quality and other environ-
mental assets. Landowners may plant these buffers or
may allow natural vegetation to become established. In ei-
ther case, they must agree to manage the enrolled acres
periodically to prevent tree encroachment.
Bobwhite quail once prolific in the Southeast and Mid-
west have declined in the past several decades. Since
1980, quail populations have declined 70 percent nation-
wide, according-to federal data.
The cause appears to be loss of habitat the weeds,
shrubs, briers, goldenrod and wildflowers that spring up
after a natural or planned disturbance such as a prescribed
fire. These types of vegetation provide the necessary food,
cover and nesting habitat for quail and other birds, but
this habitat has declined due to modern farming tech-
niques, urbanization and lack of prescribed fire.
,If a landowner wants to enroll in the program and
meets basic land eligibility requirements, he may establish
a natural border from 30-120 feet in width around one or
more sides of an agricultural field. .Compensation in-
cludes a one-time signing bonus of up to $100 per acre en-
rolled. Landowners will receive annual payments for the
length of the 10-year term of the agreement based upon
soil fertility and local established rental rates plus.an an-
nual maintenance payment of $5 per acre.
The FWC is reaching out in particular to landowners in
21 counties in northern Florida, where this initiative has
the most potential to benefit bobwhite quail.
Interested landowners should contact their county FSA
office and ask for enrollment applications for Practice
CP33 Habitat for Upland Birds.

Osteoporosis...are you at risk??


Linda Smith
Katie Hadsock, program
specialist for Suwannee
River Area Health Educa-
tion Center gave a very en-
lightening look at the bone
disease, osteoporosis. This
disease is often known as
the silent disease, accord-
ing to Hadsock, because
often there are no symp-
toms or pain, and there-
fore the person is unaware
Sof it until a bone is broken.
Hadsock said that the-
purpose of this program
which is funded through
the department of health,
is to make folks aware of
What the disease is and
how it can be prevented.
She said it is much easier
and less costly to prevent
the disease than to deal
with the consequences of
it after a person is affected.
Hadsock shared a film
presentation that gave a
lot of informative and in-
teresting facts about this
disease and who may be at
risk. It was learned during
this presentation that os-
teo means "bone," and
porosis means "full of
holes," therefore osteo-
* pororis means "bones full
of holes." During the pre-
sentation Rotarians
learned that a person's
bones are porous, but
when affected by this dis-
ease, the bones have large
holes in them, and become
brittle. In the event of a
breakage, it is much more
difficult to heal since bone
must be next to bone to
heal.,
According to the'statis-
tics in the: film presenta-


tion, a person is building
strong bones during the
years of birth to age 30, so
it is very important to do
the things to ensure strong
bones, such as eating
foods high in calcium, like
milk and milk products,
green vegetable, etc. Had-
sock said it is possible to
get the amount of calcium
needed daily, from foods,
but very often, we do not
eat correctly and therefore
do not get the required
amount of calcium we
need.
Hadsock said that after
age 50 a woman's body
doesn't produce as much
estrogen which is needed
to'make strong bones, and
therefore a calcium sup-
plement is needed. All cal-
cium supplements should
include vitamin D, which
is needed for absorption
of the calcium.
Osteoporosis not only
affects women, but men
also. Osteoporosis is
hereditary, but can be pre-
vented and/or controlled.
if started in the early
years, by eating correctly,
exercise, maintaining a
healthy body weight, not
smoking, and limiting al-
cohol, etc. This is basical-
ly the purpose of this pro-
gram 'Families Building
Strong Bones." Hadsock
goes around to the differ-
ent counties in this area
Sand promotes bone health,
in the schools, health fairs,
and: other functions. An-
other thing that she offers
is a free bone density test.

Mayo Woman's Club meeting Feb. 14


The Mayo Woman's Club
met on Valentine's Day at
the Methodist Church An-
nex. The program for the
day was on murals. Dorothy
Neill showed a short video
on the murals of Lake
Placid. Lake Placid known
as the Caladium Capital of
the World is also home to a
beautiful outdoor mural
gallery.
Their mural program
won the honor of Florida's
Outstanding Rural Commu-
nity of the Year. Members of
the Woman's Club will be
investigating the possibility
of beginning a mural project
in Mayo as a means to beau-
tify the community and to
tell the story of the rich his-
tory of our community.
Each year the club com-
piles their hours of volun-
teer service and monies con-
tributed to their various pro-
jects. In 2005 club members
volunteered 3305 hours in
the community and con-
tributed $8,168 in money
and goods in addition to the
$2,963 raised by the club for
specific community projects.
The inspiration and guid-
ance for our hand made
Christmas cards project was


provided by Cassie Selleck.
Cassie was chosen as the
Mayo Woman's Club Vol-
unteer of the Year and her
name submitted to district
competition. President, Pam
Ward announced that
Cassie has been chosen as
the District 3 nominee.
There are 12 clubs in this
district including Branford,
Crawfordville, Greenville,
Jasper, Live Oak (2), Madi-
son,. Monticello, Perry, and
Tallahassee (2). Cassie's
name will be entered into
the FFWC competition.
Congratulations to Cassie
for all of her hard work and
many, many volunteer
hours in club projects and in
the community.
The club will again be
working with the Rotary
Club on the sale of tickets for
the Beast Feast which will be
held April 14. We hope that
These efforts will provide
some funds to kick off the
mural project for the com-
munity.
A book club has been
formed by the members.
The members will meet
every three months to dis-
.cuss the selected book. The
first book will be Peter and

Nationwide ACT

test is April 8,

for college-

bound students
College-bound high
school students can take the
A.CT Assesspmenret oC.r April
8, the next nationwide test
date. The regtiatiron post-
mark deadline is March 3.
Late registration postmark
deadline is March 17. The
cost is $29 w-ithout and $43
-ith the Writing Test (an
additional $18 fee is re-
quired for late registration).
Students -can receive reg-
istration information from
their high school guidance
counselors or they can reg-
ister on ACT's website at
ww-w.actstudent.org. The
website also features test
tips, practice tests, online
test prep, and a database for
students to find out if a
prospective college requires
a writing score.
ACT scores are accepted
by virtually all colleges and
universities in the nation,
including all Ivy League
schools. Scores are used,
along with a student's high
school GPA; high school
courses taken, extracurricu-
lar activities and other in-
formation to help determine
if a student is academically
ready for' college-levet
coursework.
"In April, miaany juniors
take the ACT," ,said
spokesman Ken Gullette.
"'When they get their scores,
they should examine them
carefully, talk with parents
and counselors, then get ex-
tra help from tutors or peer
helpers and take courses
that will strengthen any
academic weaknesses. Stu-
dents can retest early :in
their senior year and then
report only the score they
want colleges to see."
The ACT .Assessment is
an achievement test that in-
cludes four exams; English,


reading, math, and science.
Students who take the op-
tional Writing Test will add
30 minutes to the 3-hour
normal testing time. Most
colleges and universities
don't require a writing
score, so students should
check the writing test re-
quirements of colleges
they're considering before
registering for the ACT.

you need some help?", I
asked. She replied, "I
knew I should have re-
placed the battery to this
remote door unlocker.
Now I can't get into my
car. Do you think they
(pointing to a distant con-
venience store) would
have a battery to fit this?"
"Hmmm, I dunno. Do you
have an alarm, too?" I
asked. "No, just this re-
mote thingy," she an-
swered, handing-it and the
car keys to me. As I took
the key and manually un-
locked the door, I replied,
"Why don't you drive over
there and check about the
batteries. It's a long walk."

Several years ago, we had
an Intern who was none too
swift. One day she was typ-
ing and turned to a secre-
tary and said, "I'm almost
out of typing paper. What
do I do?". "Just use copier
machine paper," the secre-
tary told her. With that, the


intern took her last remain-
ing blank piece of paper, put
it on the photocopier and
proceeded to make five
"blank" copies.

I was in a car dealership a
while ago, when a large mo-
tor home was towed into the
garage. The front of the ve-
hicle was in dire need of re-
pair and the whole thing
generally looked like an ex-
tra in "Twister." I -asked the
manager what had hap-
pened. He told me that the
driver had set the "cruise
control" and then went in
the back to make a sand-
wich.

My neighbor works in the

Land with another successful trip to the foul line. Land would deliver 13-16 from the stripe,in-
cluding 7-8 in the final quarter to keep the Lady Hornets in front.


Sadly, the basketball season
at Lafayette High School
has come to an erid after
the ladies fell to North
Florida Christian in the re-
gional championship game, and the
boys falling to Jefferson County in a
close one in the first round of regional
play.
The Lady Hornets faced University
Christian at the home gym in the region-
al semi-finals. Everybody said that
Mayo could not beat the 26-2 Christians,
although the Lady Hornets had won
e4 i!n the .ear. It was true that the
Hornet*IWh had dilffidsled~Voi- f W
what since that meeting, But never un-
derestimate the determination by the al-_
most certain player of the year, Natalie
Land.
Land would face two, sometimes three
players during the game which is com-
mon, but still managedto drain 33
points in the contest, including an amaz-
ing basket through four opponents with
four seconds remaining to advance with
a thrilling 52-50 win over University
Christian. Land would finish with 9 re-
bounds, 3 assists and 2 steals to go with


her point total.
The game was tight an

Mayo 59
The season came to an end for the
Hornets boys basketballteam after
falling to Jefferson County 68-59, but it
Certainly did not seem that was going to
Sbe the case ddwn the stretch as the Hor-
Snets made a valiant run after entering
the final period down by 11 points.
A strong first quarter on the boards by
S '. Joseph Edwardspulling down 4 re-
f bounds and scored 4 points along with 6


points by Jonathan Sellers left the Hor-
nets only down by four points.
The Hornets would manage to sta-
within the four point margin against a,.,:
very talented Jefferson County team at
the half, but would fall behind by 11 af-
ter three quarters despite a valiant effort
on the boards by Michael Wimberley
with four boards and four points.
Edwards and Cody Page would bring. ;
the Hornets back however. Page was
able to hand out 2 assists, steal the ball 3
times, grab a couple of rebounds and
score 6 points, while Edwards took the
,bail to the baket aggressiielv to getW6..
the foui line making 5-6 to totag nts
for the quarter with a couple of re-
bounds. Eric McIntyre hit a key three
pointer in the rally also along with a
couple of key steals, an assist and a
board to pull the Hornets within four
points in the final minute. Page would
force his opponent into a charging foul,
and it appeared the Hornets were well
on their way to making another incredi-
ble comeback. That comeback would be
halted by some untimely turnovers how-
ever bringing a close to a very exciting
season that brought home district gold.
Page would finish the game with 12
points, 5 assists, 4 steals and 3 rebounds
to finish his career at Mayo.
Thomas Parker would add 6 points
with a steal, an assist and a block with'
one 'rebound, while Wimberley would
'finish with 6 points, a steal and 5 re-
bounds.
Leading the team in scoring was Ed-
wards with 14 points, while pulling
down 9 rebounds.
Sellers turned in a nice effort himself
scoring 11 points with a steal, an assist
and a rebound. .
Eric McIntyre would score 7 points,
while grabbing 5 rebounds, handed out
3 assists and stole the ball three times. ,'
Great season guys.

Country Music legend who
has made several trips to the
Jam much to the pleasure of
his legions of fans; John
Berry, the Georgia sensation

erful and distinctive voices in
country music whose song
"Your Love Amazes Me," has
endeared him to fans; along
with Mel McDaniel of
"Louisiana Saturday Night"'
fame; Ray Scott of "Plowboy,"
fame; Lo Cash Cowboys and
Cledus T. Judd, one of the

Enjoy paradise at Steinhatchee


Steinhatchee is located in the "Big Bend" at
the mouth of the Steinhatchee River.
Steinhatchee's location places it in the very
heart of the Nature Coast.
Steinhatchee has always been a popular
spot for fishing and hunting.
The pristine shoreline and shallow grass
flats provide habitat for salt water fish.
Scalloping in the summer offers a lot of fun
for the entire family. Fall and winter provides
great fishing for speckled trout and red fish.
There are several outdoor parks for picnics
and swimming. Don't forget the upper river
for rafting and canoeing.
After a long day of fishing, hunting or just
relaxing, stop by one of the great restaurants
for water front dining at its best.


Steinhatchee's restaurants are the perfect
place, featuring good times and great food
enjoyed with family and friends
Steinhatchee is a great place to enjoy the
outdoors, slow down and relax. Well worth a
visit. An even better place to live.

Tresa Jordan
Tresa Jordan is a singer strong enough to
wear her heart on her sleeve, even when it's
bruised and broken. That's because she
knows the transformative power of country
music. She knows the greatest songs
resonate because they tap into universal
themes of love and loss, joy and pain. She
knows because she's lived life. She's chased
dreams and dealt with heartache. Writers are
'told to write what they know. Tresa knows
real life.
She also knows music. It's been a part of
her life from the very beginning. She grew
up in a musical family in the small central
Florida town of Melrose.
"My dad was a drummer," she says.
"Wheni I was little I remember him going
out to play with his band on Friday and
Saturday nights. He had to wear these shirts
with cuff links. When I was really little, I
was asked if I could go sing with him.
When I was about 9 or 10, I actually got to
go sing with my dad. I've got a picture of
me sitting there waiting to go out on stage
to perform for the first time. It was the most
awesome thing."


Allbritton's Used Car Supercel


Tresa Jordan will be appearing at the Bluegrass
WinterFest 2006 this weekend at Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park
Thqse early experiences
enter solidified Tresa's desire to
pursue a creative career. She
spent the last two years of '
high school studying at the
Florida School of the
Performing Arts, which
required an audition for
admittance. She passed with
flying colors and was
accepted into the prestigious
arts school.
S"It was a great experience
for me. Growing up there
weren't that many people
who were into music and the
arts like I was. Going to a
school where that's what
everybody wanted to do was
wonderful."
The creative environment
helped the young singer
flourish and she began
writing her own songs.As her
skills developed, so did her
resolve to make a career as a
Country music singer. She
knew that for that to happen
she would have to make the ;
S move to Nashville. At 19, she.
and her best friend, also a.
musician, packed their bags
Sand made the move.
Fame and fortune soon
followed.
I odge Duran No, wait. That's the fairy
o--e D tale version. Like the songs
i ] she writes, Tresa's story is
grounded in reality. Once she
moved to Music City, she and
her friend got jobs waiting
5 C 2 tables to pay the bills while
car; 00 n they honed their craft. Tresa
met another struggling
musician and fell in love.
Theyiwere soon married and
began having children. Tresa
rowvdl put her career on hold to raise
a family.
s help you And they lived happily ever
ar, not push after.
Sa ...... No, wait. That's the fairy

tale version. And Tresa's life
has been a country song, not
a fairy tale. Less than seven
years later, she found .
herself in the same situation.
many women find
themselves in. She had three
children, a mortgage and a
marriage going south.
Despite all attempts for her
and her husband to work
things out, their efforts were
failing. She began writing to
deal .with complex emotions'
of what \\as ultimalel\ a
divorce and redisco\ er\y-of
herself and her music
'The songs poured out of
herand she began to heal.
She knew that music was.


integral to who she was and
had to be a part of her life.
She put her life back
together with a newfound
confidence.
Through it all she kept
writing. The songs kept
getting better and so did her
life. She fell in love again
and married a man who
fully supported her musical
career.
She began recording
Songs about her
experiences, songs about'
life. She recorded songs
about the.first flush, of love
: and how\ it can die. She
chronicled a marriage
falling apart. There were
, soiigs about pushing ..
through the pain and finding


true love. Songs about
mistakes. Songs
abouttriumphs.
The 10-song disc doesn't
have an electric
Instrumentation. That's by
Design.
"The sound of acoustic
instruments is so beautiful
and clear," says Tresa. "You
can muddy up songs with a
lot of electrics and a big
production. My songs lend
themselves.to an acoustic
arrangement. They're
organic, raw and natural.
The instruments match the
lyrics.' .,
The songs on Tresa's
debut range from the radio
ready contemporary country
hit "UnderneathThe


Wheels" to the old-school
bluegrass stomp of "Ain't
No Grave." She mixes in
the easy groove and catchy
melody of "Long Time
Comin' Round" with
thenostalgia of "Dancin' On
Daddy's Feet." Her lilting
voice soars on the
heartbreaking ballad
"Angels Cry" and "Hold On
To You," a poignant love
song. But the song that may
captureTresa's essence is "I
Turn To Country." This ode
to a simple, natural way of
life rings with a truth that's
undeniable.
That's because Tresa is
unwavering in her
commitment to write and
record songs about real life.


"I have to write songs
about things I've
experienced," she says. "I
know sonie writers can just
come up with an idea and
write it out of thin air. I
can't do that. It has to be
something that I've been
through or an emotion that
I've dealt with. There has to
be some kind of truthfulness
to a song or it won't
resonate \ ith people."
Her music Wiill resonate
x ith country\ fans, because,
she's singing their life back
to them. She's found the
words s and the music to :
communicate the trials and
triumphs of ordinary people.
She doesn't sing about
fairs tales, she sings about


real life.
And Tresa Jordan knows
real life.

s the upright bass-hard
fast, sensitive and
oth, while singing lead
'a "rough around the


edges" old countiy.style. His
talent as an arranger has been
important in preserving the
band's traditional style. Jere
was featured in the October
issue of Bluegrass Now.
Sandy Lee (Mom) plays a
hard-hitting mandolin style
and driving rhythm that keep
the band's momentum going.
'For special numbers, she
switches to the clawhammer
banjo. She is the most
versatile singer in the band.
From hard hitting bluegrass
gospel to old-time mountain
and country tunes, she does it
all. Her yodeling is a real
crowd pleaser. Sandy is also a
great harmony singer and
song writer.
Cia Leigh began the band
on the guitar in 1999 at age
15. In October of 2000,
however, she switched to the
banjo. Influenced by the
styles of J.D. Crowe, Don


Reno and Jim Mills, she has
developed a fast, powerful
style of her own. Her banjo
plays a major role in the
band's hard driving style.
Receiving the award for
SPBGMA Banjo Player of
the Year for 2005 evidences
her abilities as a musician..
Cia is, quickly moving to the
top as a vocalist as well.
Singing harmony, she shines
on tenor and high baritone.
Her voice has been featured
on several projects with
artists such as Doyle Lawson,
J.D. Crowe, Paul Williams,
Ben Isaacs, and Alecia
Nugent.
B.J. began playing fiddle in
1999 at age 11 and has
amazed all of those who have
watched him over the years.
His fiddling adds an
excitement to the music not
possible by most young
musicians. He has been


compared to such stellar
fiddlers as Stuart Duncan and
Aubrey Haney, and has
performed with some of
bluegrass's finest. He is also
featured on Rhonda Vincent's
new live concert DVD and
CD, "Ragin' Live." B.J. is
also coming into his own as a
fine young vocalist adding,
lead and harmony vocals for
the group.
Skip began playing
mandolin in the band in 1999..
at age 9. But in November of
2000, he was asked to take
over on the guitar. In only a
few months he was playing
rhythm and flat-picking.
Nicknamed "Smiling Skip,"
This six foot tall Hank
Williams look-a-like charms
the audience with his guitar
picking, singing, and
showmanship. Skip is an
excellent picker, but it is his
aggressive rhythm style that


characterizes the'
Cherryholmes drive and
energy. Skip's feature article
for Flat-Picking Guitar
Magazine can be found in the
June/July issue.
Molly Kate began playing
in 1999 at age 6.This yding,
-left-handed fiddler's
aggressive; soulful style
earned her an IBMA
nomination for Fiddler of the
Year, 2004, and a SPBGMA
nomination for Fiddler of the
Year, 2005. She has
performed with Rhonda many
times and appears on
Rhonda's new concert DVD
and CD "Ragin' Live,"
performing "Frankie Belle"
and other selected tunes.
Molly has a beautiful voice'
and adds her lead and
harmony vocals to the

'Fake Baking' is a

cancer threat
Vacations to tropical locales are all the rage during winter months. Residents of snow-covered areas seek the
relief and refuge of sandy beaches and warm ocean waters. High school and college students frequent Caribbean
resorts during school recesses or family trips.
When packing for warm-weather destinations, most remember the requisite bathing suit, beach towel and sandals,
577-F among other necessities. However, many are now bringing along something else on their winter getaways that has a
potential health threat a golden hue, courtesy of the local tanning salon.


In recent years, tanning salons have experienced a boom in business, particularly among adolescents. According
to Dr. Joshua Fox, dermatologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology, frequenting tanning
salons has become a new trend for the younger generation. He reports that at least 10 percent of teenagers used a
tanning salon in 2004. Most visit the salon before weddings, school photos, and vacations, all in an effort to have
what is perceived to be a healthy glow. Many teens fail to realize that tanning beds are as if not more dangerous
than tanning in the traditional sense.
TANNING BEDTHREATS
Just like the sun, tanning beds give off UV radiation. Components of UV radiation include UVA, UVB and UVC.
UVB is considered the most harmful and is the culprit most recognized for causing cancer. Melanin, a pigment made
by the skin, protects the skin by absorbing UV radiation. Darker-skinned people are less likely to suffer the cancerous
effects of tanning beds than light-skinned individuals. Yet either way, there is the risk.
Tanning beds are especially dangerous to teenagers, as their skin is experiencing rapid cellular activity. The
powerful UV rays from the tanning beds can affect the skin, causing it to thin and be less likely to heal properly.
Tanning beds can also compound the effects of prior sun damage, leading to a greater risk for various types of skin
cancer, including malignant melanoma. It can take 10 to 30 years for melanoma to develop, so many don't realize the
health risks until it is too late and years of skin damage have been experienced,
Other risks with tanning beds involve teens who are using acne medications such as Tetracycline. The UV rays
can react with the medications, causing photosensitive conditions like skin blisters.
LAWMAKERS TAKE ACTION
Many states are now mandating that adolescents have parental permission before visiting a tanning salon. Such is
the case in California, where Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed such a bill into law. In Suffolk County, New-
York, anyone under 14 is banned from using tanning beds, and teens ages 14 to 18 must be accompanied by a
parent. In Nassau County, New Ydrk, lawmakers want signed parental approval or an accompanying'parent before'
teens can frequent tanning salons. Other states have similar proposals awaiting approval. These laws make parents
personally responsible for the welfare of their children. The idea is to make guardians realize that tanning presents a
health or even death threat, and it should be taken just as seriously as the topics of promiscuous sex, drug use or
drinking.
Dermatologists and others want people to' be more familiar with the risks associated with tanning bed use. Right
now, there are warning statements posted on most beds, but.they are long and involved, and most tanning bed users
don't even read them over. W. Howard Cyr, Ph.D., of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, wants to
change these warning statements to bulleted text, which is easier to read, so more tanners will be in the know.
GOLDEN ALTERNATIVES
Avoiding the sun and tanning beds-does not mean the paler members of society need to spend their lives with
pasty white skin. There are other, safer alternatives. Many salons and spas offer spray-tan services, where an FDA-
approved colorant is sprayed on the skin to mimic the glow of a natural tan. The color will last anywhere from a few
days to a week. Do-it-yourself lotions, creams and sprays are also available at retail stores. Tanning pills, which
contain color additives, are also available. But these pills may cause side effects, like impaired vision, so their use is
discouraged. Cosmetic companies also sell a variety of bronzers and other powders, which can be dusted onto the
face and body.
For more information on the risks of tanning, visit the National Cancer Institute's Web site atwww.cancer.gov.

Mrs. Collins, Spirituaist
Hea ery cader, Advisor
\II u ho are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman whb knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
*She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
just a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you
have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.
