Prescription,


over-the-counter


drug abuse among


teens escalating

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
Smoking cigarettes, using drugs such as marijuana
and consuming alcohol alone are no longer considered
"cool," "hip," and the "in-thing" to do by many teens
across the country, who are now turning to prescrip-
tion and over-the-counter medicines to get a new high.
According to recent studies by anti-drug organiza-
tions such as the Partnership for a Drug Free America
(PDFA), this trend is skyrocketing and out of control
like a runaway locomotive. "Alarming statistics from
the Partnership's national survey confirm that inten-
tionally abusing prescription (Rx) and over-the-
counter (OTC) medications to get high are now en-
trenched behaviors in today's teen population," says
PDFA.
Many of these drugs are easily accessible at the local
pharmacy, online, and even at home. The four types of
drugs commonly abused by teens are pain relievers,
stimulants, sedatives, ard tranquilizers, according to
the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Some of
the wide variety of drugs that teens are experimenting
with are Robutussin, Vicks Formula 44, and Vicks
NyQuill.
Teens as young as 12 years old are participating, ac-

Free Press Reporter
An accident involving a
car and tractor caused CR
425, between Mayo and
Branford, to be partially
blocked for several hours
on Thursday, Dec. 28. At
the scene of the crash were
the Lafayette County Sher-
iff's officials, Mayo Volun-


teer Fire Department,
Lafayette Emergency Ser-
vices, the Florida Highway
Patrol, and Donnie Land,
Lafayette County Emer-
gency Operations Manage-
ment Director. FHP Trooper
Richard Gill was the inves-
tigating officer.
According to the FHP re-
port, the collision occurred,
at 12:26 p.m., on CR 425,
one quarter of a mile south


of SR 27, near Mandarin
Road.
At the time of the acci-
dent, Eucario Martinez, of
Live Oak, was driving a
small 1993 Saturn car and
Jesus Cervantes, of Bran-
ford, was driving a large
farm tractor, the report indi-
cated.
As Martinez was travel-
ing south on CR 425, Cer-
vantes was traveling east on


Mandarin Road. According
to the report, the moment of
impact occurred when Cer-
vantes continued to enter
CR 425 after failing to make
a.complete stop, hitting
Martinez on the left side.
Lafayette EMS transported
one occuppant to Shands of
Live Oak.

Local resident remembers


President Ford


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
On the morning of Dec.
27, many Americans awak-
ened to learn that a
beloved president, Gerald
R. Ford, passed away on
Dec. 26, at the age of 93.
President George W.
Bush, after being notified
of his death, immediately
issued a statement to pro-
vide encouragement and
strength to the Ford family
as well as to the nation
during this time of mourn-
ing. "Our 38th president
will always have a special
place in our nation's mem-
ory. President Ford lived
93 years and his life was a
blessing for America. And
now this fine man will be
taken to his rest by a fami-
ly that loved him and by a
nation that will be grateful
to him forever," President


Bush said.
The last time America
mourned the passing of a
president was in 2004,
when Ronald Reagan died
after fighting a long battle
with Alzheimer's disease.
Ford's presidency was
unique in that he was the
first person to be appoint-
ed to the office, He re-
placed Vice President
Spiro Agnew and Presi-
dent Richard Nixon, who
resigned.
In a continuation of hon-
oring President Ford's
legacy, President Bush de-
clared Tuesday, Jan. 2, a
national day of mourning.
As President Ford's cas-
ket was in the Capital Ro-
tunda, many people came
to pay their final respects
and reflect on what they
remembered about him,
whether they were digni-
taries, co-workers, family-
members, or friends.

On a local level, Carlton
Black, who has been a full-
time resident of Lafayette
County for approximately
26 years, remembered Pres-
ident Ford and believed he
was well-suited for becom-
ing president despite the
difficult issues America
was facing at that time.
"His appointment tended
to have a calming effect
upon the nation because
the country was in an ap-
prehensive mood," Black
said.
At the end of a week-
long memorial, President
Ford was laid to rest at his
museum in Grand Rapids,
Mich.

HAPPINESS IS...
Everyone wants to be happy, to "2i;
have a joy filled life. Oh, how elu-
sive it appears to be! Some never
seem to find it. What is it that
makes you happy?
Some find it in a sports event but
the joy comes if your team is win-
ning. If not, you may experience a
lot of frustration, even taking it out
on the family. u
Have you ever listened to adults
at a Little League game (or T ball)? David H. Matier, DPC
They don't sound very happy un-
less it involves their child hitting a run in or scoring a
homerun when the bases are loaded. The poor child
that doesn't perform to his parent's satisfaction!
Some enjoy going to amusement parks to have fun as
a family. They do have fun like those attending a sport-
ing event. But, later, when Mom and Dad think about
the mounting credit card bills and late payments, as a
result of all the money spent, it is not fun. As a matter-
of-fact it becomes down right depressing! With the cost
of entertainment these days it is a miracle that any fami-
ly can afford it.
The list of things people do could go on and on. You
may feel neglected if your source of happiness wasn't
mentioned but you know it would be impossible to in-
clude all of the activities people do to pursue happiness.
Did you ever think of happiness being, not the goal,
but the byproduct? Many are seeking happiness while
not realizing it because it is not the object but the affect.
Joy comes as a job well done. Joy comes when you set
your heart and your soul to seek the Lord (I Chronicles
22:19). It may be hard work. It may take some sacrifice
on your part. It may take time spent on your face be-
fore God.
Often the result of suffering brings joy (Psalm 30:5).
That is hard for us to understand suffering and joy ap-
pear to be poles apart. The happiness comes after expe-
riencing the depth of human emotions. It causes you
not to take the pain (physical and/or emotional) free
period for granted. It causes joy when the hurting goes
away!
Doing right is the source of happiness, anything else .
is short lived. Doing right by your family brings joy,
not only to you but to the whole family. Attending
church (Hebrews 10:24, 25) is an activity, a responsibili-
ty when fulfilled brings joy. A hard days work; a pro-
ductive day, meeting your goals for that day, brings
happiness (meeting the goals wasn't necessarily fun -
but the result was joy/happiness). Joy is the result of,
not the goal. Those seeking happiness often miss it by
not realizing it is not the object but the byproduct of do-
ing' God's will.

Woman'
The LES children's art
displayed during Pioneer
Day was so well received
that the Woman's Club art
committee decided to in-
clude these pictures in the
People's Choice award for
next year. LES art teacher,
Karen Callis used different
techniques to depict this
year's theme which was
"Farming." The Kinder-
garten children learned
more about shapes by cut-
ting out shapes to make
farm animals. First grade
students cut out farm ani-
mals and then used differ-
ent patterns, like zig-zags,
in variety of colors to color
their animals.
The second grade stu-
dents drew their idea of the
portrait of a farmer, both
male and female. Third
graders cut out shapes to
form the farmer's barns.
Some even included straw
in the loft and doors to go.
inside. The fourth graders
used aluminum foil to
draw a relief picture of
their versions of farm ma-
chinery, past and present.
The Mayo Woman's Club
gave a $50 savings bond to
the best picture at each
grade level. Final judging
was done by two members
of the Live Oak Artist
Guild, Nancy Allen and
Laura Hodges. The pic-
tures remained on display
for some time at Lafayette
State Bank and at the
School Board office. This
year's awards were given
out in the classroom. Since
students only have art one
day a week, it took some
time to give them out and
try to get pictures of all the
winners.

The winners were:

NFCC nursing

students welcome

new recruits
North Florida Communi-
ty College's second year
registered nursing students
welcomed 24 new recruits
during a special R.N. orien-
tation Dec. 8. The new stu-
dents, scheduled to begin
classes Jan. 8, received valu-
able advice from those who
have completed ,a year in
the program. NFCC's first
R.N. class will graduate De-
cember 2007.
"This is exciting, yet over-
whelming," said one new
recruit. "Knowing there is
such a support group really
helps."
The new group was ush-
ered around campus and
received .assistance with
purchasing textbooks, pay-
ing tuition, getting student
JDs and uniforms. "Every-
one on campus was so nice,
"and" talking to the other
students helped us relax,"
were some of the com-
ments.
The orientation program
began with a welcome from
NFCC President Morris G.
Steen, Jr.; Cathy Simcox,
Dean of Career and Techni-
cal Education; Nita Fico, Di-
rector of Allied Health Pro-
grams; and RN Instructors
Angela Culpepper, Julie
Townsend and Marsha
Bass. Participants then en-
joyed a complimentary
breakfast provided by the
NFCC Nursing Department
before touring the campus.
NFCC initiated the Asso-
ciate Degree in Nursing
program in 2006. For infor-
mation about the program
or admission requirements,
contact Melody Foust,
A.D.N. program, at (850)
973-1662 or

Is losing weight your New Year's resolution?


It's that time of year
again. As the New Year be-
gins, many of us are start-
ing to make our resolu-
tions. Like millions of
Americans, most of us have
'lose weight' at the top of
our list. While many
blame too little exercise
and too much food for their
weight troubles, new re-
search shows that it isn't
the only factor causing our
expanding waistlines. The
International Journal of
Obesity recently published
a list of 10 other reasons
why people become obese.
High on that list sleep de-
privation.
So how can a good
night's rest impact the
scale? There's no doubt the
average adult doesn't get
the recommended eight
hours of sleep each night.
Now, researchers claim
that too few hours of sleep
can cause hormonal
changes that lead to weight
gain. These hormone'lev-
els can trigger hunger and


slow down your metabo-
lism. In fact, a recent study
shows that people who
sleep less than seven to
nine hours a night are up to
75 percent more likely to be
obese. That's why best-
selling author and nutri-
tionist Cherie Calbom has
developed a groundbreak-
ing program to help you
slim down and rest well.
"Sleep is the ingredient re-
searchers are pointing to as
the missing link in weight
loss plans," says Calbom.
"Many of us are tempted to
think if we stay up late,
we'll bur more calories.
But this is simply not true.
Getting more sleep, such as
seven to nine hours a night,
is the ticket to a lean body,"
Of course, in our hectic
lives, a good night's sleep
is a rarity for many Ameri-
cans. A poll sponsored by
the National Sleep Founda-
tion found'that 74 percent
of respondents experienced
at least one symptom of a
sleep disorder a few nights


a week and only 30 percent
of adults reported getting
eight or more hours of
sleep on weeknights.
That's why Calbom's new
book, Sleep Away the
Pounds, touts a compre-
hensive plan to improve
not just the duration but
also the quality of sleep.
"Lots of women are
short on sleep" says Cal-
bom. "Whether a woman
suffers from insomnia, too
much to do, work or rela-
tionship problems, dealing
with a new baby or carry-
ing baggage from the past-
these are all things that can
keep her from getting
enough sleep. And then
she'll battle carb cravings
and never know why."
In Sleep Away the
Pounds, Calbom outlines a
four step plan to improve
sleep and balance out the
hunger-causing hormones:
Step 1: Get a better
night's sleep. Calbom of-
fers 60 tips to help make
this happen.


Step 2: Reduce
Stress and calm your mind
to get a good night's sleep
and help reduce the stress
hormones that pack on the
pounds.
Step 3: Exercise
those pounds away!
Step 4: Learn how
diet can affect your sleep as
well as your waistline. Fol-
low the 21-Day Plan for
weight loss success and the
best sleep possible.
Sleep Away the Pounds
also reveals many little-
known secrets to optimiz-
ing your sleep quality and
weight loss such as:
Which foods can
help you sleep better
Which foods to
avoid
Which supple-
ments promote weight loss
and better sleep
Causes of insomnia
and how to overcome them
The pros and cons
of sleeping pills
Other hidden caus-
es of weight gain-and how


to fix them
The best time of
day to exercise
Anyone who's ever
struggled with cravings,
fatigue and weight gain
will be eager to find out
how snoozing can put
them on the path to losing
weight. Calbom's straight-
forward writing style
makes it easy to under-
stand the science behind
using sleep as a weight loss
aid. Simply stated, Cal-


bom's plan provides the
key to optimizing sleep, re-
setting metabolism and
shedding excess pounds
for good. Sleep Away the
Pounds could make 2007
the final year for adding
'lose weight' to that New
Year's Resolution list.

Grab your hip waders and let's go coon huntin'!


By Tony Young
The fish finally quit bitin'
on that pleasant April after-
noon on Lake Lafayette in
Tallahassee. After catching
about 20 bass within a half-
hour, including an 11.5-
pound lunker (my biggest
bass to date), I probably had
hooked every fish in that
hole and figured it was time
for me to go home. Willie
Williams, who I'd just be-
friended, had himself caught
enough specks for dinner, so
he too decided to call it a day.
But before we left the lake
that afternoon, we talked for
a spell and admired the
huge, trophy bass I had


caught. That's when Willie
mentioned to me his love for
coon huntin' and said he had
some sure-enough coon
dogs.
I remember Willie getting
excited and saying, "They
ain't nothing' like the feeling'
that comes over you when
you hear your dogs'open up
on a hot trail.
He also told me: "People
get crazy bout them dogs,
and then suddenly, his mood
shifted to melancholy. Willie
began to speak slower and
more deliberate, telling me
about the time his best coon
dog got stolen. As he reflect-
ed on that painful memory,


Bread of the Mighty Food Bank will be
in The Mayo Town Park on Tuesday.
Jan. 9, at 1 p.m. to distribute USDA com-
modities. This program will not interfere
with any other commodities you might
be recel\ing at the present time. If you
receive Food Stamps, Temporary Assis-
tance to Needy families, SSI, Medicaid or
Residence in Public housing funded by
municipal, county, state or federal gov-
ernment you are eligible to receive
USDA commodities.
You only need to meet one of the


he got a little teary eyed, and
his voice got choked-up'
when he told me: "I Ain't
never cried over any woman
like I done cried over that
dog."
That phrase would be-
come part of the chorus on a
slow-tempo, 12-bar blues
song I later wrdte and
recorded in memory of
Willie's beloved dog, Belle.
"Coonhound Blues" tells the
tale of a man's love for his
dog, their history together
and of a promise Willie
made to himself, if he ever
found the man who took his
dog.
As Willie and I trudged up


above requirements. However if you do
not receive any of the above assistance
you may still be eligible to receive these
commodities. This program will serve as
many people as pos.ible.
The food bank will try to be in
Lafayette County every 30 to 60 days to
give out these commodities. Once you
sign up they will notify, you when and
where they will be the next time they
come.
If you have any questions you can call
the Mayo Town Hall at 294-1551.


Buzzards

sion says this mystery can
easily be explained.
According to Karen Park-
er, spokesperson for FWC,
the buzzards, also known
as vultures, are in a migrat-
ing pattern. "The reason we
are seeing so many of them
is they are migrating. We
do have year-round resi-
dent vultures in Florida but
we also get migrants from
the northern states and
Canada. When the weather
gets bad up north, they
come down to Florida,"
Parker said.
Parker also says that
flocks of buzzards can be
seen migrating south from


Sept. to Dec., throughout
most of the sunshine state,
while other buzzards mi-
grate during spring from
March to May.
SAs people continue to en-
counter these huge birds,
Parker encourages every-
one to be safe when ap-
proaching them. She advis-
es that you slow your vehi-
cle down and be aware of
your surroundings. "If you
see vultures feasting on
roadkill, slow down and be
aware of the birds. Accord-
ing to one of my biologists,
the vultures are slower
than crows, who seem to be
more aware of what's going
around them. Vultures will
get out of the way, so just


slow down and give them a
chance to fly off," Parker
said.
Parker reminds us.that it
is still illegal to shoot or ha-
rass any buzzard without a
proper permit from FWC
because they are under
state protection.

The estimated amount of

port.


the hill, he offered to let me
park my truck at his place the
next time I went fishing. Do-
ing that would make for a
shorter walk, and I thanked
him for the kind gesture.
When we neared his house,
Willie said his prized female
treeing-Walker coonhound
had recently given birth to a
litter of pups and asked if I
wanted to have a look at em.
Sure, I said.
There were six puppies,
about a month-old -- "saddle-
backs" with lots of distinctive
black ticks on their under-
sides. They didn't have much
white on em, like a lot of
Walkers do, and had only a
touch of brown around their
faces and rears.
Willie said if my wife and I
wanted one, he'd give us pick
of the litter.
I took him up on his offer.

Prescription-

cording to PDFA. "Phar-
maceuticals are often more
available to 12 year olds
than illicit drugs because
they can be taken from the
medicine cabinet at home,
rather than marijuana
which necessitates know-
ing someone who uses or
sells the drug," PDFA said.
Local officials, as well as
anti-drug organizations,
advise parents and
guardians to continue to
teach their children about
the dangers and conse-
quences about drugs and
to keep prescription med-
ication out of the reach of
children and teens. "Par-
ents and family members
whose homes teens visit
should keep prescription
medications out of teens'
reach, rather than in the
medicine cabinet," PDFA
said.
Be sure to watch the
Mayo Free Press to see the
next installment to this sto-
ry and to see if our county
has been affected.


My wife, Elizabeth, picked
out a pretty female that took
a liking to her immediately.
Dakota, as we named her,
turned out to be a fine coon
dog, a great pet and a wel-
come addition to our family.
We now have two treeing-
Walkers, because we bred
Dakota and kept a female we
named Star.
I returned the favor by giv-
ing Willie a female puppy
out of the same litter. This
special "gift-of-giving" had
now come full-circle. Willie
has since bred that dog and
kept three of its offspring.
Between the two of us, we
plan to keep the bloodline
going, but what I didn't real-
ize back on the lake that day
was Willie had an ulterior
motive besides finding that
puppy a good home. He had
found himself a new huntin"
buddy and passed on the
coon-huntin" tradition.
I, on the other hand, made
a good friend, got a great dog
and, with that dog and
Willie's tutelage, was intro-
duced to the exciting world
of coon huntin".
If you'd like to try coon
huntin', you may do so with
dogs at night, while using a
flashlight or headlamp. On
private property, when in
possession of written
landowner permission, you
may hunt raccoons year-
round, but most of us prefer
to hunt them during the


colder months so as not to
get our dogs snake bit or at-
tacked by gators.
You're only allowed to har-
vest raccoons, and opossums
for that matter, using .22-cal-
iber firearms (other than .22-
magnums) or single-shot
.410-gauge shotguns with
shot no larger than No. 6.
But, all firearms must remain
unloaded except immediate-
ly prior to shooting treed or
bayed raccoons or opossums.
There are no daily or sea-
sonal bag limits on how
many raccoons or opossums
you may harvest.
All dogs used in pursuing
raccoons or opossums are re-
quired to wear collars or tags
which identify dog owners
and their addresses. Hunt-
ing either fur bearer by shin-
ing or using lights from mov-
ing vehicles, boats or animals
is against the law. S o
if you're looking for a new
and exciting hunting" oppor-
tunity, get a hold of a good
coon dog, grab your .22, a
flashlight and a pair of hip
waders and take to the
swamps!
Here's wishing you all a
happy New Year and good
huntin!"
Tony Young has a
mother/daughter pair of treeing-
Walker coonhounds and plans
to keep their bloodline going. He
enjoys hunting with them, and
the dogs make great petsfor his
two daughters.

Interstate system needs updating, money


By Matt Milner
CNHI News Service

Transportation experts
proudly describe the Inter-
state Highway System as
the greatest public works
project ever built in the
United States.
But in some respects, they
admit, it is also a study in
poor planning.
Fifty years after its birth,
the 46,876-mile network is
imperiled by crumbling
concrete, decaying steel, in-
sufficient lanes and over-
stuffed traffic and federal
and state gas tax receipts
can't keep up with the cost
of the needed improve-
ments.
The cause of the roadway
plight is easy enough to ex-
plain. Millions of more cars
and far heavier freight-haul-
ing trucks are pounding
away at the aging system
than engineers anticipated.
Consider these national
statistical changes since the
interstate system was
opened to traffic:
Four-fold increase in vehi-
cles to 237 million.


Three-fold increase in li-
censed drivers to 210 mil-
lion.
Three-fold increase in ve-
hicle miles of travel to 3 tril-
lion per year.
Two-fold increase in truck
loads to 40 tons for double-
trailers.
The U.S. Department of
Transportation reports
more than one-fourth of the
interstate highways, bridges
and beltways in America
are badly in need of imme-
diate repair, upgrade or ex-
pansion. The American So-
ciety of Civil Engineers
gives the system a "D" rat-
ing.
Jam-packed interstates
and traffic bottlenecks have
become common in most
urban areas, taking a grind-
ing toll on both the roads
and the drivers, and creat-
ing a national crisis of traffic
congestion.
Engineers and demogra-
phers acknowledge they did
not expect the interstate sys-
tem to remake the country
so rapidly into sprawling
suburbs and exurbs occu-
pied by big houses and big


cars.

~.: Graves, president and chief
executive officer of the


CNHI News Service Elite Reporting
Program takes a critical, in-depth
look at the history of the interstate
system on its golden anniversary,
how it fell into disrepair and what
the future might bring to the road
network that shaped a nation.


American Trucking Associ-
ations.
Graves and others argue
that interstate highways
need to be rebuilt and
repaved to carry more vol-
ume. In urban regions, they
need extra lanes or wider
shoulders to improve safety
and eliminate bumper-to-
bumper slowdowns during
peak traffic times.
Despite problems with
deteriorating interstate
highways throughout the
nation, 1-75 is in good shape
throughout North Central
Florida. Interstate 10 is also
in good condition, especial-
ly as far north as Madison
County. The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
(FDOT) just completed
resurfacing 1-10 from US 129
east to the Columbia Coun-
ty line, noted FDOT District
2 pavement management
engineer Bob Cummings.
"With the high Florida
traffic count, the govern-
ment has done a good job


keeping the interstates run-
ning through our area in
good shape," said Suwan-
nee County Commission
Chairman Randy Hatch.
Hatch said the commis-
sion has had discussion
about the issue, including
adding lighting near the in-
tersections around 1-10 in
Suwannee County.
A few years ago a sixth
lane was added to a portion
of 1-75, including where it
runs through Suwannee
County.
More changes may be in
the works for 1-75. The
FDOT has just begun work
on a master plan examining
long range needs of the
roadway. More lanes, in-
cluding separate truck
lanes, may be added in the
future, said Dennis Lord,
District 2.public involve-
ment coordinator.

ways and replace corroded

Take


Your


\i Health to Heart






This solution to eliminating digestive


problems is easy to swallow


Digestive problems account for millions of doctor visits each year. From food allergies to
heartburn to excessive bloating and stomach discomfort, the problems caused by impaired
digestion or poor eating habits are many. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services, 7 million people in the United States suffer from gastro-esophageal
reflux disease (GERD) or symptoms of what is commonly referred to as acid reflux. GERD
occurs when acid from the stomach backs up through the digestive system to the esophagus.
Initially, the symptoms are discomfort, though the
long-term effects can include erosion of the esophagus
and an increased risk for esophageal cancer. ',
Many times, digestive disorders are the result of an
imbalance of enzymes in the body in conjunction to '
what is eaten. Enzymes are necessary to break down -.:
fats, proteins, sugars, carbohydrates, fibers, starches,
and lactose into small particles that can be digested and
absorbed. When enzymes do not work effectively or
are in short supply, heartburn, bloating and other
symptoms can arise. In other cases, diseases such as
Celiac disease, where a person cannot digest gluten,
can result in similar symptoms or even compromised .:.'
absorption of nutrients.


How is enzyme depletion caused?
There are two ways natural enzymes can be
impaired. One way is the underconsumption of foods
that are full of healthy enzymes. Another cause is
eating too many of the same foods or food groups. For
example, if you eat too much dairy, wheat or eggs in a
day or over the course of a week or more you can
create an enzyme deficiency for that particular food or
food group.


'.-


Improving digestive he
supplements.


r, '


can be as simple a


What are the results of too few natural enzymes?
As mentioned, digestive problems can occur. But the immune system may also be
compromised as a result. In order to make up for the ineffectiveness of the enzymes, the
pancreas secretes a greater amount of enzymes than normal to overcompensate, resulting in an
exhausted pancreas. To reduce the load on this organ, the immune system lends its white
blood cells, which have; stores of enzymes, to assist in the digestive process. The consequence
of this is white blood cells are pulled away from their primary role in protecting the body
against invaders.


What can be done without turning to prescription drugs?
Many doctors treat the symptoms of digestive problems rather than the causes themselves.
Therefore, prescription medication that either suppresses acid production or gas in the
stomach and intestines is often the first line of defense. Also, a special diet that'restricts the
consumption of certain foods, such as fatty or spicy meals, may also be recommended.
However, boosting the natural enzymes in the digestive system can be a better course of
action, and one beneficial to people who prefer not to
rely on prescription or over-the-counter medications.
Nu-ZymesTM is a dietary supplement that is taken
before, after or between meals. Each all-natural
capsule is fortified with a unique blend of maylase,
protease, lactase, lipase, cellulase, acidophilus and
CereCalaseTM a special blend of three enzymes.
These plant- and fungi-derived enzymes perform
specific functions to help the digestive system work
properly by breaking down fats, proteins, sugars and
'other nutrients into smaller particles for ease of
S :- 2 digestion.
"My 13-year-old son was diagnosed with irritable
S,: bowel syndrome when he was 5 years old," says
!.- Cynthia H. of Alto, Texas. "I have searched for
something to help him for years and finally gave up
until I watched a program on Nu-Zymes. I ordered
them and my son could tell a difference immediately.
S| My whole family takes them now."
In addition to supplementing with Nu-Zymes, there
are other steps to take that can improve digestion:
and replenishing natural enzymes through Vary your diet: Do not eat the same foods
excessively every day, which can cause enzyme


deficiency.
Eat less food in general: Overeating can cause weight gain and contribute to bloating and
acid reflux.
Eat more raw foods: Raw vegetables and fruits are full of nutrients and the natural
enzymes your body needs.
Remember that fat (in moderation) is needed: Fat is a vital nutrient essential to providing
energy, building cell membranes and protecting vital organs and nerve cells. Reduce foods
high in saturated fats, but still consume healthy fats such as canola oil, olive oil and fatty fish.

3562 and mention code VNZ1, or visit www.nuzymes.com.

bridges, creating a funding
dilemma for both the feder-
al government and the
states. A good example is
the longtime plan to ex-
pand Interstate 93 by two
lanes in each direction in
southern New Hampshire.
The price tag for the 20-mile
Project has grown from $35
million when first proposed
in 1986 to the current esti-
mate of $700 million due to
increased costs for land,
concrete and steel.
States and the federal
government pay for im-
provements to the interstate
system mostly from. fuel
taxes, but with the price of
gasoline and diesel at
record levels, there's little
political will in Washington
or state legislatures to in-
crease those fees.
Yet some highway ex-
perts say they may have no
other option.
Spending on interstate
system improvements in
: 2006 will amount to $17 bil-
lion, a sum the federal gov-
"' ernment estimates is $4 bil-
lion less than needed to just
keep up with normal wear
and tear.
"An annual investment of
approximately $35 billion
would result in significant
improvements in physical
conditions and in a reduc-
tion of traffic congestion
levels," according to The
Road Information Project -
TRIP a Washington re-
search organization.
Highway historian Lewis
recently urged a Congres-
sional committee to boost
the federal gas tax from 18.4
cents to $3.50 per gallon for
three years, with half. the
money going to rebuild the
interstate system and half to
the development of fuel-ef-
ficient vehicles.
He said motorists could
be convinced to "think of it
not as a tax but a freedom
fee, the sacrifice each of us
must make to maintain our
liberty and our way of life
That depends so much on
our efficient mobility."
Federal Highway Ad-
ministrator J. Richard Cap-
ka opposes higher federal
fuel taxes, preferring that'
the government explore
ways to give states more
options to fund the inter-
state system's future.
"The Department of
STransportation strongly
supports giving states as
many options as possible to
select the solutions that best
meet their local needs, fi-
nance projects and manage
congestion," said Capka.
One of those options is
leasing high-volume roads
to private companies that
then charge tolls to pay for
improvements and also
make a profit.
Indiana, Illinois, Virginia
and Texas have taken this
approach.
Indiana Gov. Mitchell
Daniels told a Congression-
al hearing last spring that
. his state was losing money
on Interstate 80, a toll road
that runs across the north-
ern edge of Indiana. So, he
said, the state signed a $3.8
billion, 75-year lease with
an Australian-Spanish


transportation company.
Lease fees are earmarked
for highway maintenance
and building projects.
Less than 4,000 miles of
interstate highways carry a
toll. Most were four-lane
roads already in existence
when Congress passed the
Interstate Highway Act in
1956 and were added to it.
But there's no law to pre-


vent states from adding toll-
ways to the system.
There are other ways, of
course, to relieve the pres-
sure on the nation's inter-
state highways. They in-
clude car-pooling, more
commuter trains and greater
government spending on
mass transit.
But the reality is that
Americans love their auto-
mobiles, and won't give
them up even when there
are other, more convenient
ways to get around. The
price for that attitude is a
battered road system in
need of updating.
"We are at a crossroads in
our nation's transportation
story where we must decide
which path to take," Sen.
Jim Jeffords of Vermont, the
senior member of the Senate
Environment and Public
Works Committee, recently
observed.
"We can take the easy
path and maintain the status
quo ... or we can take the
more difficult path and
change the course of surface
infrastructure funding for
the future."
Jeffords, who retires from
Congress in January, said
standing still will surely cre-
ate a national traffic crisis


because the number of cars
and trucks on the interstate
system will only increase as
the population grows by
leaps and bounds.
And worsening conges-
tion, he and other experts
say, will cost the nation bil-
lions in wasted fuel, pollu-
tion to the atmosphere by
hydrocarbons from idling
engines, and lost productiv-
ity.
Jonathan Gifford, a pro-
fessor at George Mason Uni-
versity's school of pubic pol-
icy, put it this way:
"We're at the end of a 50-
year period where building
the interstate system was
the centerpiece of national
policy. We had the sense
that when we finished the
interstates, we were fin-
ished."
But, he added, the need
for new solutions has just
begun.

ing Program fellow. He

pinch. Simply combine pantry staples with seasonal
ingredients to create flavorful, colorful dips and
toppings that are perfectly pleasing and ready in

Grant Achatz of Alinea restaurant in Chicago
suggests a sweet; creamy combination of cinnamon,.
ginger, brown sugar, sweet potatoes and whipped

scrumptious starter that celebrates the best flavors
of the season.

Dear Classified Guys,
My wife and I recently found out
we're going to be first-time grandpar-
ents. That was enough to make us
finally clean out the spare room so
our new arrival could come visit. In
the process of cleaning, I came
across an old desk that I inherited
from my grandfather many years
ago. Now I've watched enough
episodes of Antique Road Show to
know that it is either destined to be a
great antique or just a pile of old fire-
wood. I want to take out an ad and
sell it to make room for our new
grandson and his toys, but I don't
know how to tell if this desk is valu-
able or not. Do I need to find an
expert who can tell me or can I do it
on my own? I need to figure this
out soon because my wife is
threatening to put it in the -
garage in place of my car. >

Cash: Sounds like time is run-
ning short, so pull up a chair and
we'll figure this out.
Carry: Determining whether or not a
piece of furniture has value can be diffi-
cult. In many cases, a reputable dealer
can be very helpful in appraising the
desk for you. However, by first looking
at the furniture's construction, you can


quickly evaluate if it is worth calling one.
Cash: You first want to determine if
the desk was handmade or machine cut.
Handmade desks tend to be much more
valuable.
Carry: Look for a manufacturer's
name or builder's signature on the under-
side of the desk or any drawers. Any
markings or information that you can
find will help you track down it's origin
and potential value.
Cash: You can also evaluate the con-
struction of the desk, giving particular
attention to the joints. A handmade desk
will typically have dovetail joints that are
very wide and uneven. Having made
them by hand, most craftsmen wanted to


12/24/06
@2006 The Classified Guyss

make as few as possible. You can also
look at any spindles or slats to see if
there is any variation in their construc-
tion that would indicate they were made
by hand.
Carry: Machine cut furniture came
around 1860, so you can imagine that a
handmade desk may be quite old. If you
determine the desk is handmade, then
consider calling a reputable antique deal-
er to appraise it further.
Cash: Although regardless of its
value, maybe it's something you want to
incorporate into the playroom since it is a
family heirloom. After all, your new
grandson will need a place to color with
his crayons.

Volley for Serve
There's no doubt that furniture can be
expensive, but imagine paying over 36
million dollars for a single piece. That is
the current record for the most expensive
non-pictorial work of art ever sold at auc-
tion. With the tap of a gavel at a London
Christie's auction in 2004, a badminton
cabinet, built around 1720, broke it's pre-
vious sales record of 15 million dollars.
Made by the Henry Somerset, third Duke
of Beaufort, the cabinet is considered
more a work of art than a piece of furni-
ture. Today it is on display at the
Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna.
Sitting in Style
When it comes to furniture, many of us
have our favorite chair in the house and
most of us recognize the brand name
La-Z-Boy. Designers of the first reclin-
ing chair, Edward Knabusch and Edwin
Shoemaker created their invention in the
late 1920's. Originally designed as a
wooden slatted chair, they began cover-
ing it with upholstery at the request of
their customers. However, the final
name for their invention was the result of
a contest. Although entries like "The Sit
and Snooze" and "The Slack Back" made
the list, "La-Z-Boy" ultimately won out.

Speed Limit
Like many boys his age, my six-
year-old son forgets to use the
bathroom during the night and
occasionally wets the bed.
Hoping to motivate him to get up,
my husband and I bought him one
of those beds molded like a racecar.
He was so excited when we brought
it home that he even went to bed
early.
The first few nights he was good
about getting up and using the bath-
room. However, then one night he
forgot again. When I noticed it in
the morning, I asked him, "Why is
your bed all wet?"
Obviously still excited about his
racecar bed, he innocently replied,
"I don't know, Mommy. Maybe I
drove through a puddle."

What's behind that wall?


(Family Features) For
most of us, our home is
more than just four walls.
It's our most valuable
asset; a structure that
shelters those we love as
well as our precious
belongings. And while
homeowners desire a
structure that is safe,
hidden behind those
walls could be an
unhealthy presence -
mold.
Mold remediation can
cost homeowners
thousands of dollars.
Additionally, the high
influx of mold-related
claims has prompted
some insurance
companies to stop
covering mold in their
home policies.* The best
way to avoid a hefty bill
and skyrocketing.
insurance payments is to
help prevent mold before
it starts.
Homeowners should be
aware that mold thrives
in moist, warm areas. In
fact, mold can develop in
as little as 24 hours after
being exposed to water. **
A simple untreated water
leak or an unvented
shower can harbor a mold
infestation.
To prevent mold,
follow these guidelines:
Fix the Leak: If there is
a leak in your home, fix it
immediately. Leaks from
water heaters, air
conditioners, broken
shower tiles, and washing
machines can cause
serious water damage. Be
sure to check these and
other water sources on a
regular basis.

Let Some Air In: One
easy way to prevent mold
growth is to reduce
indoor humidity to less
than 50 percent by using
air conditioners and
increasing ventilation in
moisture-prone areas
around the house. (Note:
If unsure about the
home's humidity level,
consider purchasing a
hygrometer, which is an
instrument that measures
the water vapor content
in the air.)
Build Smarter: When


building or remodeling a
home, consider using
DensArmor, paperless
drywall. This mold-
resistant drywall
incorporates glass mats
on the surfaces of the
drywall panel instead of
paper facings found on
traditional drywall.
Typically, 70 percent of
the interior surfaces in a
home are comprised of
drywall, so building or
remodeling with
paperless drywall is a
sound decision that can


help protect a home's
interior wall surfaces
from the potential for
mold development.
Build a Barrier: The
Insurance Information
Institute recommends
painting the home's
exterior to help reduce
the chance of moisture
penetrating the home.
If you find mold in
your home, here's what
to do. For small mold
patches, you can use a
combination of water
and detergent to remove


it.** However, if the
patch returns, that can
be a sign of an internal
leak. For larger mold
growths, consult a
trained health and safety
professional who has
experience in mold
remediation procedures.
Depending on the
severity of the
infestation, certified
mold inspectors can
safely search and treat
the home.

Prevent Mold. Did you
know that more than 70
percent of homes have
mold, and most of the
time, it's in the wall
cavity? Paper, a food
source for mold, is found
on traditional paper-faced
drywall. DensArmor,
paperless drywall by
Georgia-Pacific
incorporates glass mats on
the surfaces of the drywall
panel instead of paper
facings found on
traditional drywall.
Building or remodeling
with DensArmor, can help


protect a home's interior
wall surfaces from the
potential for mold
development.
Protect "Wet Areas."
Areas throughout the
home such as bathrooms
and kitchens are most
prone to mold growth.
Simply installing a tile
backer with glass-mat
facings and an acrylic
coating can block moisture
from entering the wall
cavity. This innovative
design protects tile
installations and the wall
cavity from the effects of
moisture in damp areas.
