Mother of four
prOVeS disability not

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
Seated on the cold leather
ottoman her living room, Phyl-
lis Burchell preps herself for her
close-up.
This 4l2-year-old mother of
four has an unexpected air of -
confidence.
"If I had to describe myself in
one word, it would be virtuous,"
boasts Burchell, a direct service
support representative for the
Sunrise Coinmunity of South
Florida. "Pardon the cliche but I
believe there is nothing I can't do
if I put my mind to it,"
Through her clear and confi-
dent speech, her next admission
is surprising to` most -- except
this author.
"I have been deaf for about
16 years flow."
She admits to facing chal-
lenges being deaf but takes them
in stride thanks to her kids.
"My kids give me the drive` I
need to keep pushing forward.
This thing can't incapacitate me
because then my babies will be
deprived and they are what's
most important to me," she says
nodding in affirmation.
Her cell phone croaks like a
frog.
"My daughter bought me
a cell phone as a present so
that we can 'talk' more often. I
chose frogs as my text message

Last year the event was tre
mendously successful, with ap-
proximately 300 residents and
helpers taking part. The effort
yielded several tons in trash that
was removed from the roads,
parks and public areas. .


Ms. McCorvey is hoping for
yet another strong presence
from concerned locals willing
to lend a helping hand.
"I'm expecting between
200 and 250 people," said the
deputy city clerk. !'That's how

Diesel prices are borderlining $4 a gallon here in our area while across the country they have topped $4. These prices and
other stimulants have become the cause of the Truckers Strike '08 that began Monady, April 1 and throughout the week.

toeanc rd ntto AAA\ the average
nationwide diesel price has set re-
cor~d highs in March and will con-
tnu r tol rte. Withsoil hitting galsi
line and diesel are soaring to com-
pensate. According to Tom Kolza,
publisher and chief oil analyst at
the Oil Price Information Service,
which compiles data for AAA, the
reports of diesel reaching $4 a gal-
lon and over in some states "really
is unprecedented."
Jim O'Neal, chairman of the
Truckload Carriers Association,
has stated that "now we're look-
ing at the dreaded stagflation: a
soft economy and increasing pnc-
es on everything, especially fuel."
Because many of the compa-
nies that are dependant on diesel
are discretionary companies, they
are forced to pay the higher pric-
es for fuel. Last year Americans
burned about 142 billion gallons
of gasoline and more than 65 bil-
lion gallons of diesel and heating
oil. This data from the Energy
Information Administration illus-
trates how dependant Americans
are on this commodity as well as
how freight businesses can't sur-
vive without it.
The rising cost of fuel not only
effects travel but will also be felt
in many other markets. With the
construction and real estate mar-
kets already feeling a slump,, Bob
Costello, chief economist of the
American Trucking Association
has said that "rising diesel costs
will almost certainly lead to higher
consumer prices and more bank-
rti~ptcies-
According to Dan Little with us-
cattlehaulers.com the news of the
strike has reached many govern-
ment offices and concerns have
formed. Mr. Little stated that "Sen-
ator Clinton's office has called.
They are on a fact finding mission,
Mr. Phil Spector was wanting to
know if we had any support for
Our shutdown on April 1."
Some have said that "we don't
really think this is gonna make
any changes overnight" and some


Trucking shutdown
WELS Io April 1. joke

By Tonya Harden
INI Flonida

Soaring prices from the gas
~pumps to the supermarket shelves
have many Americans fed up. On
April 1 a large group of Americans
planned to take a stand.
Nationwide Truckers Strike
'08, began in an effort to show
the government just how tired of
rising fuel prices the independent
owner/operators and several ma-
Jor companies are;
Beginning Apn!l 1, the strike
was tentatively scheduled to last
for one to four days. Some par-
ticipated in the form of refusing to
buy diesel, some refused to work
in any way throughout the strike
and some made their way to the
state and the nation's capitals to
protest.
"I lose money just cranking up
mny trucks," said an Okeechobee
owner/operator Roy Thomas. Die-
Sel fuel has reached an all time
high across the country. In some
Places, like California, the pnice
per gallon is more than four dol-
lars. Locally the average is $3.99
per gallon.
"It costs me about $1,160 to fill
up my tank in just one truck and
that only lasts about two to three
days," Mr. Thomas said-
Mr. Thomas, who has been in
the trucking business for more
than 30 years has felt the angst of
tising prices.
"There ain't no reason for i
to be this way, for these prices,

many have settled on the idea of

"This country is supplied by us

Thomas.
Many forums have been post-
ed on the internet discussing the
issues of the strike. Drivers are
concerned not only with the pric-
ts f Iulbtbaul nwt thp idea
for owner/operators and larger
companies to survive. However,
many felt that the strike has only

to draw some attention to what's
going on."
The strike has e~jery intention
of taking a stand against the per-
petually rising cost in diesel fuel
as well as other hardships that
have caused many drivers to park
their trucks, "go bust," or feel the
stress in other areas of their lives.
Other issues that truckers would
like addressed include excessive
regulations, fuel, federal and state
federal taxes, excessive DOT regu-
lations on non-safety related items
and insurance premiums.

Although the strike consists of
mostly independent owner/opera-
tors larger companies hearing of
this strike empathize. "Those are
the people this is hurting. They
have to pay out of pocket for their
fuel. And when they don't get bet-
ter pay rates they suffer. They can't
afford it," stated one corporate of-
ficial.
Keith Walpole of Walpole Inc.,
has commented that although his
company is not participating in
the strike he does think that "peo-
ple should pay attention and talk
to their legislature. It's important.


The cost of fuel is an extremely
volatile situation for everyone in
this country."
He added that everything we
use "is on a truck at one point."
He said of the shutodwn "it
wasn't overly organized and it was
mostly through the owner/opear-
tors, it has gained momentum."
The strike in many ways is consid-
ered a revoltt against brokers who
are taking a bit of advantage of the
owner/operators in reference to
fuel surcharges, so they're hurt-
ing," said Mr. Walpole.


would like a deal to be met that
allows "federal fuel taxes to be
suspended until the economy
bounces back."
Many drivers were expected
to take a stand on Pennsylvania
Avenue and in Tallahassee with
the hope of making law makers
understand the serverity the prob-
.lems the steady increases at the
pump are causing.
Mr. Little has also stated that
the strike will not include just
owner/operators but also unions.
The IWW Union has implied par-
ticipation. With 16,000 trucks in
their union that kind of action is
sure to be noticed. Taking those
16,000 trucks off the road for even
one day will save $5,066,400 in
fuel costs, estimated at low fuel
prices.
Mr. Little is also an owner/op-
erator out of Carlton, Mo., and is
feeling the pain the rising diesel
prices are causing. Mr. Little said
he has been contacted by many
owner/operators as well as major
companies stating they are pre-
pared to take part in this-
"There are four ports serviced
by the lWW Union who are ready
to shut down. They are in Texas,
California, Southern Florida and
New Jersey," he said. "We all
know if something doesn't change
these guys, the little guys, are on
their way out anyhow "
Mr. Little expected to see a
huge rally behind this cause with
"convoys to state capital, truckers
driving slowly and even a bobtail
outfit (group of semis without

that there would be some things
that we would just have to agree
to disagree on, but the one thing
we all held dear was.that Jesus
was Lord. We also agreed that ye
would listen with an open mind
to what each shared.
Even though we might not
have agreed with everything we
heard, it was an enlightening ex-
perieliced that challenged all of
us to look closer at what we be-
lieved and professed. We all grew
and were blessed. God glories
when His people come together
and share together,
This happened on7 Easter Sun-
day not only in each of the in-
dividual church locations but also


in thle Commnunity Su~nrise Service
held at Community Presbyterian
Church. Many churches came to-
gether for the One that is the One
for all of us. We had traditional
sharing and praise with guitars
and drums. We had Pentecostal
words along with denomination
and non-denominational sharing.
We had songs of faith and resur-
rection and a youth drama team
that shared the love and sacrifice
of our Lord. .
The styles of worship may

ship was there. God was glorified
and we were blessed. God glories
when His people come together
and share together. One of the


ministers even shared that we
were experiencing a miracle that
morning three ministers sharing -
a message and all of them keep-
ing it under ten minutes each!
Miracles still do happen today
when the people of God join to-
gether to worship the One who
is greater thari our differences. It
truly is all for the One because the
One is for us all!
Thursday, May 1, is the Nation-

style preferences. Somel praise
the Lord with cymbal and dance,
and others do their praising in
quiet reflection. Some belong to
the same church that their fathers
and their fathers' fathers belonged
to. Others have found new places
of worship because of marriage
or because of happen stance. Is
one better than the other? Not
necessarily. What's most impor-
tant in my book is not where or
how the worship is done, but that
it is done. Wecall need to be in a
place where we can go and grow
in our relationship with our Lord.
Many roads lead to the Lord.
What might be a freeway for one
person might be a road with pot-


holes for another.
The problems with some of tle
religious leaders in Jesus' time
was that they saw it as either "my
way or the highway." Truth be
know, there are many wrong-way
paths that people go down. But, if
we are open to the possibility that
there might be other good paths
besides the one we are on, great
growth can occur.
One of the best long term
Bible studies I ever led involved
a four year Bible study I had with
students while I was a campus
minister at Stetson University .We
had everything from ultra con-
servatives to ultra liberals in the
study. At the beginning we agreed


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Some say "toe-may-toe". Oth-
ers say "toe-mah-toe". I say "poe-
tay-tah", you say "poe-tay-toe".
Man~y times what we say and
how we say it depends on our up-
bringing, our environment, and
personal experiences. The same
is true with our faith understand-
ing. How we were raised, who
we have encountered, and what
we have experienced all ties in
to what we believe and what we
hold dear.
The result is that we have
a number of different worship


we recognize our defeat. We see
our spiritual need. We recognize
and declare our spiritual bank-
ruptcy and throw ourselves upon
rthe mercy and grace of God. Like
Paul, in doing this we are "cruci-
fied with Christ." The "old man
of sin," self, is put to death. In
total surrender, we are "buried
with Christ" in baptism to arise to
"walk in newness of life." We are
"new creatures' in Christ Jesus.
In losing our lives, we have truly
found them. We have meaning
and purpose in living. Christ lives
within us as we un~selfishly and
victoriously live for Him. And in
genuinely putting ourselves last,
the Lord will put us first.
Yes, it is only in surrender that


we can gain the victory (surren-
der to God). But it must be a total
surrender. A good illustration of
surrender can be seen in the end-
ing of the World War 11. The 1st
World War ended in a stalemate
and ceasefire, called an Armi-
stice. There was no surrender. It
wasn't long until Germany under
H-itler was disposed toward war
again. World War 11 is history.
The Allies in the defeat of Germa-
ny agreed that there must be an
unconditional surrender, not an-
other Armistice. Germany would
be occupied. The same condi-
tions would be demanded of the
Japanese. There had to be an un-
conditional surrender. Likewise,
this is how we end all hostilities


with God. But in totally surren-
dering, there is victory in defeat
(from our perspective). We enter
the good life. And in being totally
surrendered to God we can get
the victory over Satan.
Let us always remember, "God
resisteth the proud, but giveth
grace unto the humble" (James
4:6b); "Strength is made perfect
in weakness" (2 Corinthians
12:9); "I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth. me"
(Philippians 4:13), and "If God be
for us, who can be against us?"
(Romans 8:31b)


By Jackie Miller, minister

Clewiston '.
This may sound ironical, con-
tradictory or even ridiculous, but
it is the way things ~are in Christi-
anity. You become victorious tho-
rugh defeat. You win through sur-
render. You begin to live through
dying. It is in losing your life you
find it. And by being last you are
in a position to become first. Con-
sequently, in our rebellion against
God, we must be dethroned. Self
must be gotten out of the way.
Then victory, salvation and bless-
ings will be otirs in many ways.
Look at.these very interesting
Scriptures that illustrate those


paradoxical and remarkable
truths as stated.
Matthew 5:3 "Blessed are the
poor in spirit, for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 10:39 "He that fin-
deth his life shall lose it; and: he
that loseth his life shall find it."
Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified
with Christ; nevertheless I live;
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me;
and the live I which I now live in
the flesh I live by the faith of the
Son of God, who loved me, and
gave himself for me."
Romans 6:4 "Therefore wye
are buried with him by baptism
into death; that like as Christ was
raised up from the dead by the
glory of the Father, even so we


also should walk in newness of
life."
2 Corinthians 5:17 "There-
fore if any man be in Christ, he
is a new creature; old things are
passed away; behold, all things
are become new."
John 12:24-25 "Verily, verily,
I say unto you, Except a corn of
wheat fall into the ground and
die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it
bringeth forth much fruit. He that
loveth his life shall lose it; and he
that hateth his life in this world
shall keep it unto life eternal."
Matthew 20:16 "So the last
shall be first, and the first last;
for many will be called, but few
chosen."
By becoming "poor in spirit,"


joy (1 haven't heard about many
of them lately); it certainly is
something we understand. The
woman in the parable doesn't
say "Well, I have nine coins left
to get me through the week" or
"I can borrow another one from
one of my friends" or "maybe
the merchant will give it to me
on my account." My debts are a
trust;a kind of faith in me. The
symbols of what I will use to
respect that trust are around us;


even in the street! When 1 make
a disconnect between what I
buy and what I owe, I betray
a trust and betray the faith of
those who make it possible for
me to make large purchases or
make emergency expenditures.
Robert Ferrar Capon, a former
seminary dean spoke of this
trust in Churches when he said
"A Church that lives ad-hoc will
die in hock." Careful scrutiny of
finances and budgets,and be


ing responsible in our adminis-
trations, leads to longevity and
keeping the trust laid down'
by those who have built the
Churches we inherit. Same goes
for families, governments, our
institutions and the legacies we
will leave our children. Ecology
is also a part of economy as well;
it's about a woman searching
her house and about our being
responsible to the trusts given to~
us, too.

I have heard that it now costs
more to make pennies than their
worth! Copper is now becoming
a very valued metal and sugges-
tions have been made to make
them using steel or less copper
in their mantifacture. The value
of pennies has decreased! They
are more likely to be found ly-
ing in the street, as if to say "I'm
not worth picking up." It was in
Colonial Times that Benjamin
$-Franklin proffer-ed his famous
dictum; "A -penny saved is a
penny earned." That, of course,
was when a penny was worth a
lot more than it is today. There
is more to it than that, though.

Surgeries are booming at Hendry Regional Medical Center, so much that the
hospital has recruited a second surgeon, Dr. Darayes Mobed, who
immediately formed a team with Dr. Leonard Carroll, the existing surgeon at
HRMC. Dr. Mobed began using his scalpel at Hendry Regional on March
14th. In the midst of the increased surgical volume, he and Dr. Carroll will
complement each other with their wealth of knowledge and combined
surgical skills.

SOCIALISM: You have two
cows. You keep one and give one
to your neighbor.
COMMUNISM: You have two
cows. The government takes
them both and provides you with
milk.
FASCISM: You have two cows.
The government takes them and
sells you the milk.
BUREAUCRACY: You have
two cows. The government takes
them both, shoots one, milks the
other, pays you for the milk, and
then pours it dotvn the drain.
CAPITALISM: You have two
cows. You sell one and buy a
bull.
CORPORATE: You have two
cows. You sell one, force the
other to produce the milk of four
cows, then act surprised when it
drops dead.
DEMOCRACY: You have two
cows. The government taxes you
to the point that you must sell
them both in order to pay the
taxes to support a man in a for-


eign country who has only one
cow which was a gift from your
government.
After reading this, and at the
risk of sounding intelligent, which
obviously would destroy any
semblance of my limited integrity,
I suddenly had an epiphany. Until
then, I had always beleived that
the "BULL" associated with poli-
tics was an acquired behavioral
character anomaly, not a known
congenital fallacy, totally propor-
tinate to the political purveyor's
length of exposure to the political
process, and the resultant prox-
imity and association with the in-
herent "BULL."
As is so often the case, if you
live long enough, there will most
often be something in yrour expe-
rience that allows for comparison.
In my case it was a statement that
I remember my Father saying on
the topic of politics. As. I remem-
ber it he said, "Doing the job right
the first time gets the job done,
but doing it wrong, over and over,


provides job security."
So, on that note, at the risk of
milking this subject dry, let's see
what, if anything, we are to make
out of the current herd of bovine
ballot contenders stampede,
called the campaign, to the White
House.
It occurs to me that someone
less diplomatically inclined than
me might be saying that the en-
tire herd has morphed into, as
in Obama's case, a "BARACKA-
BRAHMAN. In Clinton's case, a
"HILLERY-HEREFORD", and in
McCain's case, an "ANGUS-Mc-
CAIN", thereby proving, once and
now, that when it comes, to "real
change"', it's all in the "BULL' of
your choice. And just when you
thought it couldn't get worse,
I'll close by saying if your bet-
ting on who comes out on top,
put your money on the biggest
"BULLCHIPPER."
Respectfully,

6 OPINION


COW PoliticS
How strongly do you beleive
in coincidences? It was just a
few weeks back that we were all
informed that one of our County
rnm istoners Bwasd dresitoin g

press of other issues involving his
church and his cattle business.

fe awsojtdr Iurcivel anta itcla
in which a person went to great
len ths to explain political y-
ten s by way of comparisons wtsh
cow owrnerships.
Well, to say the least, my first
reaction was that this would have
to be a real stretch of the imagina-
tion, but I went ahead and read it
anyway. And strangely enough it
made sense in a convoluted way,
if you don't take it too seriously.
Here is how the author arrived
at the conclusions that politics
can be explained as t'elevant to
cow ownership and manage-
ment, by comparing it to different
political systems.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Thursday, April 3, 2008


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
Deanna Everett made some
big catches and some even more
impressive throws as she led the
Glades Central Raiders to their.
first victory of the season Thurs
day, 23-7, over Okeechobee High
School.
Raiders Coach Sheldon
Washington knows something
about winning. He played foot-
ball with the likes of Johnny Rut-
ledge, Riedel Anthony and Fred
Taylor during his playing days at
Glades Central.
Washington repeatedly took
risks, going for it on fourth
down, and then relying on his
defense to keep Okeechobee off
the scoreboard.
Everett said that shows their
coach has a lot of confidence in
his team, "It was a great game, a
great win. It was our first win. I
can catch real well. I'm an awe-
some athlete."


B3ille Joe Freeman scored the
only touchdown of the night for
Okeechobee in the thiird quarter
on a sh-ort run. T'he touchdown
was set up by a 45 yard pass
from QB Amelia Moros to Tay-
lor Woods. Freeman ran in the
extra point to account for all of
Okeeehobee points.
Kylie Eckhardt had an ex-
cellent game on defense for
Okeechobee (1-2). She repeat-
edly put pressure on the Raiders
QB's and had three sacks on the
night. She almost had an early
interception due to her pass
rush. She added three tackles on
running plays. .
"I feel we did well. We could
have done better. We have our
nights and our off nights, it hap-
pens," she noted. "The coach
was confident in me and told
me to rush the passer. It worked
out pretty good. A couple of oth-
er girls also got to rush and got
some good experience."


rit appeared Okteechobee
wb~uld be off to the races against
Gla es Central in the early go-
ing. Freshman Macin Raulerson
ran up the sideline for 25 yards
and barely missed scoring a
touchdown on the opening play
of the game. However Moros
was intercepted one play later
to halt the drive and stop any
momentum the Lady Brahmans
could muster.
Glades Central drove to the
Brahman 35 but faced a fourth
down and long. That's when
Everett got open in the second-
ary and out fought the defense
to catch a 35 yard touchdown
pass. That play set the tone for.
the aggressive Raiders.
"I had to step up, play big,
and make a big play," Everett
noted afterward. She alternat-
ed between wide receiver and
quarterback and was equally
effective in both positions. She
noted she has played tackle foot-


ball with boys and isn't afraid of
contact.
A second interception by
Glades Central set them up at
the Brahmans 19 later in the
quarter but the defense was
able to make a stand and pre-
vent a touchdown. However
any momentum from the defen-
sive stand was lost when the of-
fense mishandled a handoff and
it landed in the end zone for a
safety and a 9-0 Glades Central
lead.
QB Rodkeisha Joiner rushed
for two touchdowns in the sec-
ond half for Glades Central as
they built their lead to 16 points.
Lori Nicolas scored a late rush-
ing touchdown for the Raiders.
"There quarterbacks were
very elusive," Eckhardt noted,
"They had good arms. She read
me just like I read her. If she saw
me coming she tried to run, just
like anyone would."
Okeechobee's offense was

seniors John Melton, David Pope,
Terrence Thomas, Sim Putman
and others, it seems like a rebuild-
ing year for the program.
There may be only four se-
niors and 17 boys overall on this
year's tearn. But Coach Summers
believes that many of them are
headed in the right direction with
their attitudes intact, of course.
"I want to see the kids grow,
mature and learn how to work
hard," Coach Summers said.
There are at least four athletes
that have the potential to repre-
sent the Tigers in the Class 2A re-
gional meet at Astronaut on April
1 7. Some of them might: even have
a shot at making it to the Class 2A
state championship meet, to be
held on April 26 in Winter Park.
But, first, they must have at least
an above-average performance at
the district meet, held on Friday,
April 11 in immokalee.
Here's a look at this year's
standouts:
Senior Zach Waddell, who is


plays baseball this time of year
but couldn't compete due to a
shoulder injury. However, it hasn't
stopped him from competing
in events such as the 100 meter
dash, along with the 4Xl00 and
4X400 relay races. His best 100
meter dash time so far is 11.39
second s.
Senior DeAngelo Huston is
described as someone that team-
mates want to practice with. His
positive attitude may have attrib-
uted to his stellar performances in
the discus event this year, placing
second at the LaBelle track meet
with a throw of 121-10. Hope-
fully, DeAngelo will improve his
distance throws and represent the
Tigers at the state meet later this
month. ,
cons drd romhe e at's Ibeatn al
around athlete, might have the
best shot at making it to the state
championship meet. Ricky partici-
pates in the 400 meter race and is
on the 4X400 relay team. His best
400 meter race time so far is an


impressive 51 seconds, but Coach
Summers said that if Ricky could
get the time down to about 49
seconds, then he might qualify for
the state meet.
Over on the girls end, with
third-year coach Aaron Bach at
the helm, he has a very young
team on his han s as we l.
The girls team consists of only
one senior and 17 overall. Not sur-
prisingly, their best athlete is that
one senior in Mary Hegley, who
has the capability of represent-
ing the girls at this month's state
meet.
Mary participates in the long
jump and in the 400 meter race.
But, particularly, with her best
long jump so far at 16-9, Mary has
a good chance of representing
Cle istorn th to r il that ent

could catch people by surprise
this month.
Junior Shaniqua Pass com-
petes in the 100 and 200 meter
races, while participating on the
4X100 and 4X400 relay teams.
Shaniqua's best 200 meter race
time so far was at 27.13 seconds,
but hopefully she could improve
her 200 meter time and qualify for
the Class 2A regional meet in As-
tronaut.

compromise the chemistry of a

In addition, Coach Bach likes
the girls' chances of qualifying for

The girls coach keeps the sea-


son in perspective.
"Right now, they're getting
better and improving themselves

ated, clean, sound shelled, fresh,
grade AA or A eggs.
*Buy eggs from refrigerated
cases. Always refrigerate eggs at
home.
*Store eggs in the carton on
a shelf (not in the door) in the re-
frigerator to ensure freshness.
*Egg shell and yolk color
may vary, but color has nothing to
do with egg quality, flavor, nutri-
tive value, cooking characteristics
or shell thickness.
*Poach eggs instead of fry-
ing to cut back on fat, or use non
stick pans or non-stick vegetable
pan spray to reduce fat when pre-


paring eggs.
*Prepare and serve eggs with
low-fat foods such as vegetables,
fruits, whole grain breads, and
low fat or skim-milk cheeses.
Serve egg dses promptly
or keep them refrigerated,
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription drugs. Some drugs
interact badl with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."


egg changes the shell, removing
som-e of the egg's natural protec-
tive cover. This allows bacteria to
get through the egg shell and con-
tamninate the egg. (This is why it is
not a good idea to use real eggs
for Easter Egg hunts in warm cli-
mates.)
Eggs are an inexpensive and
low-calorie source of protein. A
medium egg only has about 70
calories, with 6 grams of protein.
Eggs contain potassium, vitamin
A, calcium, iron, Vitamin B-12,
Riboflavin, phosphorus and zinc.
They are a "brain food" -- source
of omega-3 fatty acids, which are


important for good brain func-
tion.
Years ago, eggs were unfairly
blamed for high cholesterol. Re-
searchers later found that choles-
terol is affected by many lifestyle
factors. Diet alone does not de-
termine cholesterol levels. For ex
ample, smoking increases "bad"
cholesterol levels; regular exer-
cise decreases cholesterol levels,
Even heart patients are now al-
lowed to include eggs in their diet
a few times a week.
Some tips from the American
Egg Board:
*Use only properly refriger-


If you have any hard boiled
Easter Eggs left inl the refrigerator,
it's time to throw then out.
According to the USDA, after a
week, cooked eggs are no longer
safe to eat, even if they have been
refriglerated. (H-ard boiled eggs
that have not been refrigerated
ar~e no longer safe to eat after. two
hours.)
Raw eggs can be stored in the
refrigerator a lot longer. Accord-
ing to the USDA, eggs may be
kept for up to five weeks in the
refrigerator
Hard boiling an egg reduces
its "self life" because cooking the


prescribed by a trained health
care professional. Doctors spend
many years in school to learn
when antibiotics are necessary,
and what antibiotic is most useful
for a specific infection. It is a very
bad idea to get antibiotics from a
friend, relative, or local store. In
the United States, it is illegal to
sell antibiotics without a prescrip-
tion. However, in other countries
like Mexico, many medicines
are available over-the-counter.
Sometimes these medicines are
brought into the United States and
sold at small shops. Not only can
this contribute to antibiotic resis-
tance, but it could be dangerous
to your health, as many antibiot-
ics have serious side effects.
2. Antibiotics should only be
prescribed for definite bacte-
rial infections. Antibiotics do not
help viral infections, such as the
common cold or the flu. These
illnesses will generally get better
by themselves within a fewr days
to~a week. Your doctor may rec-
ommend medicines to treat the
symptoms of these viruses, such
as pain relievers, cough syrups,
and decongestants, although
over-the-counter and prescrip-
tion cold medicines are no Ilonger
recommended for children idue to
the risk of adverse reactions. The
best treatment for viral infections
is plenty of rest, fluids, and avoid-


ance of cigarette smoke.
3. If antibiotics are prescribed,
take every pill until the bottle
is empty. It is difficult for many
people to finish their dose of an-
tibiotics, because they usually feel
better before the, antibiotics are
completed. However, not finish-
ing the medicine can allow any
remaining bacteria to become
Stronger and develop resistance
in the future. In some cases, not
completing a course of antibiotics
can lead to serious personal health
consequences. For example, anti-
biotics are given to people with
strep throat to prevent a heart
condition called rheumatic heart
disease. Not finishing the course
of antibiotics may increase the
chance of developing this danger-
ous condition.
4. Try not to pressure your
doctor into prescribing antibiot-
ics. Doctors are human too, an~d
although we try to do our best
to provide evidence-based care
for our patients, we sometimes
feel pressure to give unnecessary
treatments. It can be hard for doc-
tors to face the disappointment of
their patients, who generally ex-
pect to leave the office with some
kind of prescription, and may
become upset when no medica-
tions are advised. The truth is that
for many viral infections the best
treatment is simply time to let your


body's immune system clear the
illness. Of course, in some cases,
what seems to be a simple viral
infection may deteriorate into a
more serious bacterial infection.
Because of this risk, your doctor
will explain to you the warning.
signs of severe infection, and may
ask you to return in a few days or
sooner if you are worsening for a
recheck. We don't do this to try to
get more money from ypu, or tO
inconvenience you, but because
this technique has been found
to be the best way of avoiding
unnecessary antibiotics without
compromising patient care and
safety.
5. Prevent infections before
they start. One of the best ways
to prevent infection is by frequent
hand washing or the use of hand
sanitizers. Cover your mouth
when you cough or sneeze, and
avoid work or school when you
are very ill to prevent spreading
infection. Vaccines are very use-
ful in preventing infections such
as pneumonia and the flu. Also,
don't smoke, as smokers are
much more prone to developing
viral and bacterial infections.
Doctors and patients can help
prevent antibiotic resistance by
working together against this very
serious problem. Talk to your
health care provider if you have
questions about antibiotics.


By Rebekah Bernard,
M.D.
"I started getting a scratchy
throat this morning a patient
told me this morning. "Last time
this happened my doctor gave me
an antibiotic that knocked it right
out." Later on that day, another
patient told me, "I've been taking
my mother's leftover penicillin
for a sinus infection." Still another
patient told me that she was tak-
ing an antibiotic from Mexico that
she got at a local store Although
they don't realize it, these three
patients are contributing to a very
serious crisis in medicine: the de-
velopment of super-strong bacte-
ria that are resistant to available
antibiotics. *
Antibiotics were introduced
during the 1940's, and have
helped to save the lives of many
people with serious bacterial in-
fections. Unfortunately, many
bacteria have learned to mutate
or change in order to prevent be-
ing destroyed by antibiotics. This
mutation is known as "antibiotic
resistance." If we do not stop
this problem,- our society faces
a future of increased illness and
death from these powerful mu-
tated liacteria.
To prevent antibiotic resis-
tance, follow these recommenda-
tions:
