Brushfire sweeps



across Mallory Swamp

Billowing clouds of thick
Smoke rose high above Mallory
Swamp as a large brushfire
spread across the landscape on
Thursday, Jan. 3.


Lafayette County Sheriff's of-
fice personnel received word
early that afternoon that a brush-
fire was burning quickly and be-
ing pushed by strong winds.
LCSO then requested assistance
from the Department of Forestry
and also requested a plane to
survey the situation.


According to the Lafayette
County Division of Forestry, the
fire was successfully put out as
they worked until after dark and
took advantage of calm winds.
They mopped up the area to
make sure the affected area was

Arctic blast freezes Florida


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
Old man winter reached into
his bag of tricks again. Last
week, an arctic blast of bone-
chilling winter weather swept
through the entire state of Flori-
da.
As far south as Miami, tem-
peratures plummetted at or be-
low the freezing mark. Locally,
our area saw temperatures in
the teens for several days dur-
: ing the night time hours.
Throughout the day, tempera-
tures remained at or near 60 de-
grees.
The National Weather Service
reported last week the Daytona
area was the only section of
Florida that saw a few snow
flurries.
Many farmers across the state
worked hard day and night to
save their crops from being lost.
They used methods such as irri-
gating in order to create a tem-
porary protective layer of ice.
Others covered their plants with


a special type of covering to
keep temperatures underneath
from reaching 32 degrees.
Local officals remind residents
to practice safety while trying to
stay warm this winter. Mayo
Manna House continues to offer
warm food, shelter, clothing,
and other needs for those who


ate unable to afford them.
This week, the NWS continues
to forecast warm temperatures
between 70 and 80 degrees for
the high and low temperatures
in the 50s. Next week, the NWS
is predicting cooler tempera-
tures with highs in the 60s and
lows in the 30s and 40s.

ee of Springhill Publix in
Gainesville, and enjoyed
fishing and camping.
Further details regard-
ing this case could not

to Jan.l, the law ex-

enjoyed a brief recess
from being required to
have PIP.
The renewal legisla-

Gov. Charlie Crist on

the Florida Legislature
stepped in to provide
protections for Flori-

with this law carries
heavy consequences.
According to Alex
Sink, Chief Financial
Officer for the state of
Florida, any policy-
holder who does not
carry PIP, will have
their driver license and
auto registration sus-
pended. Sink further
says PIP protects you,
your family, and cov-
ers your vehicles in the
event you are involved
in an accident with an
uninsured driver.


For additional infor-
mation on PIP, contact
your local auto insur-
ance provider.

.qew Year's Eve is a
tire when revelers re-
pember all that has hap-
,ened during the year,
and look forward to a
fresh start in the one to
come. A part of the cele-
bration is making resolu-
tions for the new year.
The idea of resolutions
is thought to have come
from the ancient Babylo-
nians. These people be-
lieved that what a person
did on the first day of the
new year would affect
". ,him or her throughout the
entire year.
Resolutions range from
A many things, from quit-
ting smoking to getting
more organized. Al-
though the priorities and
hobbies of people change


throughout the genera-
tions, most resolutions re-
main the same through
the years.
The key to keeping res-
olutions is to think about
them in advance of New
Year's Eve festivities and
decide on one or two that
are really important to
you. If you need some in-
spiration, consider these
top 15 resolutions.
1. Exercise/weight loss
2. Reduce stress
3. Make time for yourself
4. Volunteer work
5. Save money
6. Eat more healthfully
7. Treat friends/fami-
ly/neighbors better
8. Spend more time with
family/kids
9. Get more sleep/relax-


ation
10. Get a new job or start a
new career
11. Pay off debt
12. Get organized
13. Watch less television;
14. Balance the checkbook
15. Quit smoking/drink-
ing/another bad habit


Resolutions rarely


change through the years

If there is a word that-
people are getting tired of
hearing it is probably the
word change.
One thing you can be
sure of is change! Maybe'
this is what they call .an
Oxy-moron, but the orly
.constant is cliange (I'ye
never seen that written
anywhere but I don't think
this preacher is the first to
come up with the saying).
No matter who is elected
as president, there will be
change.
SBut when comments are
made, like, "the only. con-
stant is change" we are
talking about transient
things. Not about the
Truths of God's Word.
God's Word never changes
anid can always be counted
on as a pivotal point for
your life. All the decisions


David H. Matier


you' make, whether you
are a politician running
for the presidency of this
great nation or a citizen
applying for a job at Mc-
Donalds, should be based
on the TRUTH of God's
Word; His Word, includ-
ing the Ten Command-
ment (Exodus 20:1-17, re-
peated in Deuteronomy
5:6-21 Deuteronomy
means second giving of
the Law).
Maybe this is what
President Bush meant-
when he said a person
running for the office of-
president must stand on
unchanging principles
and then asked the con-
tenders for the office of
the president to speak re-
garding the principles
they stand on. The Amer-
ican people have put them
in a position where they
are probably petrified of
saying, "I stand on the
principles of the Word of
God, the Holy Bible," be-
cause then they would
have to explain how their
belief in the Bible would
effect their position on for-
eign policy, etc.
If the American people
were familiar'with the
Bible they would have a
much better idea of how
the Bible would effect the
outlook of their leaders
when it comes to making
decisions. Wouldn't you

Does your information match up?


By: Paul D. Barnes
Social Security Regional
Commissioner, Atlanta, Ga
Tax time is right around
the comer. Soon you will
be receiving your W-2s
from your employer(s)
and tax information from
the IRS.
Carefully check your
name, Social Security
number and all of the data
on your W-2s and on your
Social Security card. A
mismatch could delay
your tax refund and cause
problems with your Social
Security benefits in the fu-
ture. Such errors are easy
to fix.
If you've legally
changed your name due
to marriage, divorce,
court order, or for any
other reason, make sure
you change your name
with Social Security by
applying for a new Social
Security card. Make sure
you change your name
with your employer as
well. If you don't, it
could cause your earn-


ings to be improperly
recorded.
If you are the parent of
a newborn, you want to
make sure that the newest
family member has a So-
cial Security number too.
Most people apply for
their baby's Social Securi-
ty card while they're still
in the hospital at the same
time they apply for the
birth certificate. But if
you didn't, you'll need to
apply for your child's So-
cial Security number in
order to claim the child as
a dependent on your tax
return. You'll also need it
if you ever need to apply
for government benefits
on behalf of the child or
your family.
To apply for a Social Se-
curity card, all you need
to do is complete a one-
page application and pro-
vide proof of identity, age,
and citizenship. In the
case of a child's first card,
you also need to prove
that you are the parent.
For a name change, you


Paul D. Barnes


will need to provide docu-
mentation with your old
and new names.
For more information
about getting a Social Se-
curity card and number
for your child, or to
change your name and get
a replacement card for
yourself with your updat-
ed information, visit Social
Security's website at
"http:/ /www.socialsecuri-
ty.gov/ ssnumber"

I was talking to a friend
sometime back about liv-
ing life on a budget.
"Budget!" she said, "Isn't
that where you rent a car
when you go on vaca-
tion?" Needless to say, we
were not on the same
page. Actually the word
budget has gotten a bum
rap. It is basically just
spending your money on
paper before you spend it
in life. Author John
Maxwell says, "A budget
is telling your money
where to go instead of
wondering where it
went."
Last week, Heart Mat-
ters addressed the stress
that financial struggles
can bring to our relation-
ships, and discovered that
contentment is a key fi-
nancial concept to put
into practice. While this
is true, it is difficult to put
into place when financial
problems are mounting
and we find ourselves in
over our heads. At this
point, we need some ba-
sic, practical help about
how to climb out of the
mess we are in.
A simple budget is a
great place to start be-
cause it allows us to
spend the money we have
on purpose and with in-
tention. The good news is
that we don't have to wait
for a perfect month, we
can start right where we
are. Overspend during
the holidays? Credit card
debt dragging you under?
Begin by writing down
what you have today: in-


-AR


come and expenses. This
is your game plan, where
you tell your money what
you want it to do, give
every dollar a name on
paper. It won't be perfect
the first time, but stay
motivated and don't give
up, after a few months
you will have a much
clearer picture of your fi-
nances and a better han-
dle on your spending.
If you have trouble
sticking to your budget,
try to stay away from
places that tempt you to
spend. Just like it's not
smart for an alcoholic to
hang out at a bar, if you
don't have extra money to
spend, don't go to the
mall, Home Depot or Bass
Pro...you get the idea.
The goal of a budget is
to manage your money
and over time, reduce
your total debt. The mes-
sage of our world today is
"Enjoy now and pay for it
later." However, the Bible
says in Proverbs 22:7 that
"the borrower is slave to
the lender." When we are
in debt, we are slaves to
what and whom we owe.
The Bible goes on to say
in Matthew 6:24 that "No
one can serve two mas-
ters...you cannot serve
both God and money."
Debt means our money
belongs to someone else
and we are not free to use
the money we have to
help those in crisis, those
in need, or support God's
work throughout our
world. Bottom line: we
cannot serve God with


our money when we are
slaves to our lenders.
Motivational expert Zig
Ziglar was quoted as say-
ing, "If you aim at noth-
ing, you will hit it every
time! Let's begin 2008 by
living with purpose to-
ward our financial health
and easing the stress in
our relationships, because
your heart matters.

Cell phone safety program


Programming emer-
gency contact information
into your cell phone un-
der the listing "Ice" (in
case of emergency) can as-
sist first responders in
contacting family or
friends in the event that
you are involved in an
emergency situation.
Just program your cell
phone with the code word
"ICE" (In case of emer-
gency).
1. Open your cell
phone's telephone book or
contact list to create a new


entry. Instead of entering
the name of a person, en-
ter the word "ICE."
2. Enter the phone num-
ber of the person you
want contacted in an
emergency. To list multi-
ple contacts, name the en-
tries "ICE 1", "ICE 2", etc.
First responders could
then look for the code
word "ICE" when they
check your cell phone and
contact someone who
could provide important
information that may just
save your life.

FWC "eyes in the skies" locate lawbreakers


If you're going to break
the law, be careful. You
never know who might be
watching.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Avi-
ation Section at Lake City
has a new weapon in its
arsenal to protect the
state's valuable natural re-
sources.
The Bell 206 L4 Long
Ranger helicopter will en-
hance search-and-rescue
and other law enforce-
ment operations in the
FWC's North Central Re-
gion.
"We fast-forwarded
about 35 years in technolo-
gy," said Lt. Joe Johnston,
a pilot who has been with
the commission for nearly
30 years. "We replaced
our 1970s-era military sur-
plus OH-58 helicopter
with this one."
It's basically a .newer,
larger version of the previ-
ous helicopter with some
impressive upgrades,
Johnston said. The new
Long Ranger can carry
seven people, as opposed
to four that the OH-58 car-
ried. The new helicopter
weighs about 1,000
pounds more, with a top
airspeed of about 150
mph, as opposed to the
QH-58's top speed of 138
mph.
"The Long Ranger is
equipped with a thermal-
imaging system, the FLIR
8000, which detects ex-
tremely subtle tempera-
ture changes, critical for
warm-weather search-
and-rescues or for locating
a suspect who. has at-
tempted to elude cap-
ture," Johnston said.
"The FLIR doesn't care if
it's midday or midnight. It
creates an image based on


heat."
The FLIR also is able to
downlink to officers on the
ground, who can view
everything the pilot is see-
ing by watching a laptop
display unit. The display
unit also records all im-
ages for use in court and in
training.
"If you're lost, we will
find you. If you're on the
run, we will find you,"
Johnston said. "With the
technology we have on
this helicopter, we can fly
at night with im'punity."
In addition to the FLIR,
the Long Ranger is
equipped with SX16 Night
Sun, a 30-million-candle-
power searchlight, and
night-vision equipment.
"The search-and-rescue
and law enforcement ca-
pabilities the Long Ranger
brings to the region are
tremendous," said FWC
Lt. Bruce Cooper in Taylor
County. "Especially in a
rural county like Taylor,
the helicopter will en-
hance our search-and-res-
cue capabilities not only
on the water, but also in
thick cover, looking for
lost hunters or hikers. The
Long Ranger also can de-
ploy up to six FWC Special
Operations Group officers
during critical events,
such as natural disaster re-
sponse and law enforce-
ment tactical response."
The FWC purchased
two Bell helicopters in
2006. One went to Fort
Lauderddle and the other
originally went to Panama
City.
"It was transferred to
Lake City in October, and
I've been flying it ever
since," Johnston said. "Es-
sentially, I can cover the
Panhandle down to Cen-
tral Florida while (pilot)

Lt. Joe Martyna (in Fort
Lauderdale) can cover the
southern part of the state
up to Central Florida."
The new helicopter isn't
the only tool Johnston
uses. Last month, John-
ston took to the skies in a
Cessna fixed-wing aircraft
and directed FWC law en-
forcement officers to law-
breakers in four North
Florida counties.
The officers worked
three night flights over
Columbia, Alachua, Baker
and Union counties Nov.
2, 3 and 4, Johnston said.
The detail netted 15 cases,
resulting in three arrests
and a variety of citations
and warnings written by
law enforcement officers.
"I can't overemphasize
that during all our patrols,
our main focus is resource
protection and boating
safety," Johnston said.
"But during these patrols,
FWC officers do run into a
wide variety of violations,
and they act upon them."
One night, as Johnston
flew over Alachua County
at about 7,500 feet, wear-
ing night-vision goggles,
he saw a tiny light flicker-
ing on and off in the
Grove Park Wildlife Man-
agement Area (WMA).
"Because the light
flicked on and off so
quickly, I wasn't sure
what I was seeing," John-
ston said. "I circled
around again, concentrat-
ing on where I saw the
light. I directed Officer
Sam Dishman to the area
to check it out."
Dishman noticed a vehi-
cle parked in the WMA.
He went to the vehicle and
observed the driver smok-
ing what appeared to be
crack cocaine. The light
Johnston had seen was the
man's lighter flicking on
and off while he smoked
the illegal substance. Dish-
man arrested the man for
possession of cocaine, pos-
session of drug parapher-
nalia and for not purchas-
ing a recreational use per-
mit for the area.
The next night, Johnston
and crew worked Union
County and discovered a


man trespassing. They
charged him and found
the man also had an active
warrant.
On yet another night,
while flying over Colum-
bia County, Johnston no-
ticed a vehicle driving er-
ratically. He directed an
officer to the vehicle,
which had ended up in a
ditch after the driver at-
tempted to execute a
three-point turn. The offi-
cer determined the man
had been driving under
the influence, registering
.165 on the breathalyzer
test. He charged the man
with DUI and with pos-
sessing an open container
of alcohol.
These flights require a
team effort. The officers
rely on Johnston to direct
them to the suspicious ac-
tivity, while Johnston re-
lies on the officers to make
the cases.
"The officers on the
ground are the ones who
walk up to the vehicles in
remote areas and confront
a potential violator. With-
out the officers, I'm not ef-
fective at all. We have
plenty of enthusiastic offi-
cers in this area who are
willing to check things out
and make the cases when
they find them," Johnston
said.
Johnston described the
feeling of being able to see
"forever" on a clear, fall
night.
"I was flying at about
7,500 feet, and I could see
80 miles in all directions. It
was incredible. With the
aircraft and the night-vi-
sion goggles, if someone is
doing something in the
area we're working, it
doesn't go unnoticed,"
Johnston said. "People of-
ten forget to look up to see
who's watching."
"I'm proud to have
both of these aircraft in
the North Central Region.
They are tremendous
tools to law enr6rcement,
and I intend on using
both to accomplish our
mission of protecting the
resources of the state and
serving our residents,"
Johnston said.

Aging healthily
Whether it's fruitful or not, people tend
to worry more about their health as they
age. For some, the worrying can be pro-
ductive, forcing them to overhaul a
lifestyle that might not be healthy. For oth-
ers, the worrying might only compound
existing problems.
While it's understandable and neces-
sary to focus more on health as the aging
process progresses, taking care of oneself
and aging healthily doesn't have to be as
hard as it seems. Instead, having an un-
derstanding of the human body and what
happens to it as it ages can go a long way
toward maintaining a healthy lifestyle
well into one's golden years.
Shifting energy levels: One of the fore-
most reasons diet changes are needed as
we age is the loss of energy that comes
with age. Because the body's energy levels
decrease over time, fewer calories are
needed to function on a daily basis. If
caloric intake is not reduced as we age,
weight gain and other negative physical
consequences can result.
Weakening bones: Dietary changes
are also necessary to defend oneself
against injuries that can result from bones
weakening as the body ages. As we get
older, bones begin to lose mineral content,
making them more susceptible to breaks
and other injuries. In addition, the body is
more susceptible to osteoporosis, a condi-
tion in which bones become brittle and
fragile, as it ages. Calcium can help pre-
vent injuries to bones and osteoporosis,

not a mystery
emphasizing the importance of making
calcium a part of your daily diet.
Shift in production: Ever wonder why
a middle-aged man can eat the same diet
as a young man but the physical evidence
(namely the difference in body type) will
not indicate this to be true? This is because
as a body ages it begins producing more
body fat and less muscle. This means re-
ducing the amount of fat in your diet as
you age. and exercising more to combat
the reduction in muscle tissue production
is necessary. It's best to consult a physi-
cian for any specific dietary changes, but
in general reducing fat intake while in-
cluding more protein in your diet is a
good start toward combating the produc-
tion shift that takes place as the body ages.
Another thing to expect as you age is
changes to your cardiovascular system.
The most noticeable change is the heart
loses some of its efficiency with respect to
pumping blood. Part of that loss of effi-
ciency is due to blood vessels losing some
of their elasticity, making it harder for
blood to be pumped. With the heart now
working harder to do the same job it's
been doing for years, certain changes must
be made to reduce stress on the heart. One
is reducing fat intake. Someone who has a
diet high in fat runs the very dangerous
risk of having fatty deposits form on
their artery walls, stiffening those walls
as a result while increasing blood pres-
sure and making it even harder for the
heart to pump blood. This is another rea-
son to reduce fat intake as
you age.
Whilemuch of the dis-
cussion thus far has fo-
cused on ways to lose
3334-600
334-600 weight and maintain a
294-2666 healthy weight, many peo-
ple, particularly the elder-
ly, find themselves under-
weight as they get older.
Unbeknownst to many,
being underweight can be
just as damaging as being
Mikell overweight.
porter For those who are un-
derweight, be sure to eat
three meals a day. Under-
Sida weight people can find
es to: that finishing a meal is
tough, If you're in that
boat, this is okay, but
make sure you eat the
ford, FL highest calorie foods on
ler to write let- the plate first. If you need

right to accept to leave anything on the
must be signed plate, don't leave the items

Land leads rout



at Bronson


,by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
It was not the usual
high scoring affair for
S the Lafayette Lady Hor-
nets basketballteam but
they were good enough
to knock off hbst Bron-
son 55-12 in district bas-
ketball at Bronson last
Friday night. Coach Jim-
my Blankenship said he
takes responsibility for
his team's unspirited
play. "We did not prac-
tice after we went and
played in Gainesville
over the holidays," he
said. "We should have
been on the floor but I
wanted to give the girls
some time off."
Lafayette still domi-
nated the game from the
opening tip in picking
Pp the victory. The Lady
Hornets remain unbeat-
en in district play and
improved to 14-2 over-
all. Lafayette is ranked


number one in the state
in girls 1A basketball.
Senior Natalie Land
scored a game high 20
points to lead the Lady
Hornets. Sunshine Reid
and Carthesa Macklin
tossed in 11 points each.
Reid pulled down 10 re-
bounds and dished off
six assists (unofficial) to
go with her 11 points.
Land hauled in eight
boards and dished off
seven assists.
The two teams played
earlier in the year at
Lafayette and the Lady
Hornets posted a 81-21
victory. However, it was
apparent the Lady Bull-
dogs had improved
since then and came into
the" game with an 8-5
mark. The game was
tied once and that came
at 4-4. Lafayette then
went on a 19-2 lead in
leading 23-6 at the first
stop. The quickness of


the Lady Hornets was
apparent as Bronson
had problems -with the
pressure defense. Un-
characteristic of
Lafayette, they missed

Bellamy's trey




sinks Bronson


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

Coach Daryl Fletcher's Lafayette
Hornet basketball team showed why
they are a serious contender for a dis-
trict championship this basketball sea-
son by rallying from a 17 point deficit
and pulling out a thrilling 52-50 win
over a very good Bronson Bulldog
team last Friday night.
The heroics went to junior reserve
Devin Bellamy who drilled a three-
point basket off the right side of the
key that gave the Hornets the two
point lead with just 11 seconds left to
play. The three-point basket was the
only three points Bellamy collected for
the game but it was a big one for the
Hornets who improved to 5-2 inr dis-


trict play. Coach Fletcher said he told
Bellamy he owed him two treys a
game. "He is good for one a game. That
was a big, big three-point for Devin,"
said the Hornet mentor. "He showed a
lot of character in coming through for
us."
Trailing 49-26 in the fourth quarter,
the Hornets found themselves looking
defeat in the eyes. However, as this
team has proven all season long, they
are not to be counted out. The
Lafayette defense picked up and forced
the Bulldogs into some costly mistakes
and poor shot selection over the final
five plus minutes of the game. Sergio
Perez got the Hornets rolling when he
started a 9-0 Hornet run. Perez com-

Smith leads girls JV in 55-38 win

Sports Correspondent


The Lafayette Lady Hornets junior
varsity basketball team vaulted out to
a sizable early lead but had to fight off
a determined Bronson junior varsity
team enroute to a 55-38 win for coach
Jerry Hill's ball club last week at Bron-
son. Lakentrice Smith scored a game
high 20 points to lead the Lady Hornets
but she got help for Rho-
da Reid who finished
with 18 points.
Lafayette roared out of
the gate at the onset of the
game in mounting a 20-2
first quarter lead. Howev-
er, Bronson was not
ready to display any
white flag as they roared
back in the third and
fourth quarter to cut the
deficit to a single point,
37-36 on consecutive bas-
kets by Marrero.
The Lady Hornets
righted themselves and
got an old-fashion three-
point play from Danielle
Templin with 5:38 to play
to go in front 42-36. A
Freeman basket for Bron-
son kept the game close at
42-38 until Lafayette ran
off 13 consecutive points
to open post the 55-38 vic-
tory.
In the second period,
Lafayette did everything
opposite of what they ac-
complished in the first
quarter in taking an 18
point lead. Bronson
outscored the visitors 20- LAKENTRICE
6 in the period to close to ers for two p

pleted a three-point play
and Jonathan Sellers fol-
lowed with consecutive
baskets just before Perez
scored on an easy two un-
derneath with 4:59 to
play.
On eight possessions
for Bronson in the closing
minutes, the Hornets
forced five turnovers with
Lafayette scoring on four
of the five mistakes. With
57 seconds remaining on
the clock and the Hornets
trailing 50-46, Sellers
drained a three-point bas-
ket to pull his team to
within one point, 50-49, of


the Bulldogs. Coming out
of a timeout, Bronson
turned the ball over on
two straight possessions
with 26 seconds to play.
On the ensuing play, the
Hornets got the ball in
Bellamy's hands when he
buried the three-point
basket.
Bronson still had life as
they had possession with
nine seconds remaining.
However, the Bulldogs
missed a wide open lay
up that would have tied
the game. The ball went
out of bounds giving the
ball back over to Lafayette
on the right side near the
Bulldog basket. On the in-


bound pass, Terrance
Dukes intercepted the
toss in and made one last
attempt 'to tie the game.
He missed underneath
the basket as time expired
securing the two point
win for the Hornets.
Coach Fletcher said he
was glad his team was not
the only ones missing lay
ups. "We missed a bunch
of shots tonight. They
were great looks. The
guys were shooting like
they were suppose to but
they were just not falling,"
he said. "We were happy
in getting that rebound
and getting back."
Coach Fletcher said he


could not explain the turn
around by his team in the
last six minutes. "I don't
know what happened to
us, but this team has
played that way all sea-
son," he said. "We have
been down but for the
whole season we have
been a comeback team.
This team showed great
character in coming
back."
The Lafayette coach
said it was a huge win for
his ballclub. "We are 5-2 in
the district. I have been
telling these guys we can
be a number one or num-


ber two seed in the tour-
nament this year," said
Coach Fletcher. "I told
them it was up to them.
They have really stepped
up and shown great char-
acter and leadership on
the floor."
Credit for the comeback
went to the team's de-
fense. "We switched up on
defense. We put a new de-
fense in the first half that
we never even got to
play," said Fletcher.
"When we put that press
in Jamal (Reid) and Joseph
Edwards were big time on
getting steals. Devin al-


most had a steal. They re-
ally came through."
Sellers finished with 15
points to lead the Hornets
scoring. Eric McIntyre
added 12 and Joseph Ed-
wards netted 11. Reid
scored four while Perez
finished with five points.
Bellamy had the three
points and Kevin Waters
scored two. Dukes led
Bronson with 11 points
and James Rivers tossed
in 10.
The Hornets improved
to 8-6 overall and will re-
turn to the hardwood Fri-
day night hosting Bell.

around the basket to al-
low Bronson to stay in
contention. Macklin took
charge late in the first
quarter scoring nine
points.
The shot of the game
(make that of the night)
was a half-court despera-
tion heave by Reid that
found the bottom of the
basket just before the
horn sounded to end the

basket gave Lafayette a

Understanding




heart failure


According to the Ameri-
can Heart Association
(AHA), nearly five million
Americans are living with
heart failure, and more than
half a million new cases are
reported each year.
While that's certainly a
large number, it may also be
comforting to people with a"
family history of heart dis-


ease or those recently diag-
nosed with heart failure to
know that they're not alone
and that there's no reason
they cannot enjoy a full life.
Of course, knowing about
heart failure and its symp-
toms and risk factors can
only help make the battle
that much easier.
What is heart failure?


Contrary to what its name
might imply, heart failure
does not mean the heart has
stopped ivorking. Instead,
heart failure occurs when
the heart stops pumping the
amount of blood necessary
for the body to function
properly. As this happens,
the body then tries to make
up for it in a handful of


Janar 12lm
8:30.- 00,


ways, such as the heart be-
ginning to beat faster and
the heart actually expand-
ing. As the heart chamber
expands, it stretches more
and contracts more strongly,
enabling it to pump more
blood.
Another thing the body
does is hold onto salt and
water, which increases the
amount of blood in your
bloodstream. This leads to
congestion, hence the
moniker "congestive heart
failure" used by some in the
medical profession.
How does heart failure
manifest itself?
Because the body does
things to make up for the
heart not pumping blood as
well as it should, heart fail-
ure is often difficult to recog-
nize. Oftentimes, the afore-
mentioned steps the body
takesare so effective that it's
common to not even know
the heart is suffering from a
disease.
However, as the AHA
notes, heart failure is typical-
ly a chronic disease, mean-
ing it's a long-term condition
that will continue to get
worse. As hard as the body
works to make up for the
heart not pumping blood at
full capacity, eventually the
body will begin to lose
ground and certain symp-
toms will arise. Some of the
early symptoms include feel-
ing tired easily, being short
of breath upon physical ex-
ertion, feelings of weakness
and dizziness, and heart pal-
pitations, where the heart
feels as if it's racing or
pounding.
Eventually, the fluid
buildup that occurs becomes
too much for the body as
well, and several symptoms
can manifest themselves as a
result.
Swelling in the lower
half of the body, such as the
legs, ankles or feet
Coughing or wheezing,
particularly when lying
down
Increased need to uri-
nate at night
Shortness of breath,
even when restiig
What causes heart failure?
Many health conditions
arise as a result of lifestyle
choices such as poor diet or
negative behaviors such as
smoking or excessive drink-
ing. Others are the result of
genetics, such as being born
with a defect. Heart failure
can result from both person-
al behaviors and genetics.
Controllable factors that
are associated with heart
failure include smoking,
poor diet (particularly eating
foods that are high in choles-
terol), lack of exercise, and
being overweight. In other
words, any of those condi-
tions only increase a per-
son's risk of heart failure.
They can also manifest
themselves in several differ-
ent ways.
Coronary Artery Dis-
ease: this happens when
cholesterol and fatty de-
posits build up in the heart's
arteries, lessening the
amount of blood that reach-
es the heart, forcing the heart
to work harder as a result. A
high-cholesterol diet is a big
risk factor for coronary,
artery disease.
Hypertension: also
known as high blood pres-
sure, hypertension increases
a person's risk of developing
heart failure by two to three
times according to the AHA.
Hypertension can occur
from too much stress, be it
work- or family-related. A
great way to relieve stress is
through regular physical ex-


ercise. People who do not ex-
ercise regularly increase
their risk of hypertension,
and in doing so, their risk of
heart failure as well.
Lung disease: when the
lungs are not functioning
properly, it causes the heart
to work that much more to
get oxygen to the rest of the
body. Smoking increases the
risk of lung disease, which
then increases the risk of
heart failure.

failure, visit the American
Heart Association Web site

Have you made a resolution to drop a few pounds
only to find that no matter what diet you follow, you
don't see much of a change when you get on the scale?
You may be able to blame intestinal bacteria, say
researchers.
There are trillions of bacteria living on the skin, in the
nose, mouth, stomach, and intestines of the human
body. Most of these bacteria are microscopic helpers,
doing the cleaning and breakdown tasks necessary for
healthy living. They digest food particles that people
simply cannot digest on their own.
In recent years, emphasis into the study of intestinal
bacteria has increased. Up until now, the depths of the
digestive tract have gone largely unexplored. Scientists
are now discovering connections between bacteria and
the way food is used and produced for the body. An
offshoot of this research is probiotics.
Probiotics are dietary supplements containing
potentially beneficial bacteria to help with digestion.
Probiotic supplementation is popping up in yogurt and
other food sources. These helpful bacteria are
purported to fend off stomach discomfort and diarrhea.

Too much of a good thing...
In regard to obesity, researchers have discovered that
some of the bacteria residing in the gastrointestinal
system are just too good at their jobs; call them the
overachievers of the intestines. Research has indicated
that bacteria in the guts of obese mice are better at
extracting energy from food than the gut bacteria in
leanmice. Basically, the obese mice take away more
energy (calories) from their food than the lean mice.
What's more, when the lean mice were injected with


the bacteria from fat mice, they gained weight, too.
When human subjects were introduced, most of the
same conclusions were found. Bacteria called Firmicutes
seem to be the bacteria responsible for high energy
consumption, while Bacteroidetes are the bacteria that
use the energy and bur off excess calories. More
Frimicutes were found in obese individuals. The theory is
the Firmicutes are like a fuel-efficient car, taking more
energy from the fuel (food) and passing it on to the
vehicle (body). While the Bacteroidetes are gas guzzlers,
quickly depleting the fuel stores.
More Firmicutes are present in obese mice and humans.
And in studies, regardless of what the obese test subjects
ate whether low-fat food or high-caloric junk -
Firmicutes simply extracted a higher level of calories.
This means depending upon the bacteria present in the
gut, a person may extract different amounts of calories
from foods. So if a person with more Firmicutes and one
with less ate the same food containing 100 calories in a
serving, the Firmicutes-rich gut may absorb more calories
than the Bacteroidetes-rich gut. A difference of even 10 to
20 calories a day could add up to significant weight
differences.

Not a free for all
This research doesn't indicate that a person should go to
extremes with consuming high-fat foods and blame
weight gain simply on microbiotics. These bacteria are
just one factor into the reasons why some people seems to
process food differently than others. A balanced diet and
exercise are still the best means to keeping a healthy .~
