Relief for Sinus Headaches
The sinuses are hollow spaces, in the skull. They are located between the
eyes and in the area of the facial cheek bones on both sides of the head.
The sinuses are lined with a mucous membrane that is much like the
membrane lining of the inside of each side of our nose. When bacteria or
viruses settle on this lining, it begins to become inflamed, swell, and
produce excess mucous. If the infection is not treated, the swelling and
inflammation continues.'Another medical term for swelling and
inflammation of the sinuses is acute sinusitis. The sinuses may become
clogged with excess mucous. This produces pain in face and forehead that
we commonly refer to as a sinus headache.
Sinus headache treatment is directed at unclogging the clogged sinuses
and treating the infection. Medicines commonly used to unclog swollen
sinuses are called nasal decongestants. They come as oral tablets and
nasal sprays. Antibiotics may be prescribed, if the infection is believed to
be caused by bacteria. Home remedies that are often effective include
alternating hot and cold compresses held across the sinuses for 20 to 30
seconds. Steam from a hot shower or from a vaporizer may help open
clogged sinuses. Over-the-counter pain reliever medicines such as
acetaminophen or ibuprofen may provide relief as well. 279003-F

Boyd: give the voters a voice
Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-FL) recently joined Con-
gressmen John Tanner (D-TN)
and Zach Wamp (R-TN) at a
press conference to highlight
the need for a fair redistricting
process in the wake of the re-
cent Supreme Court ruling. In
June, the Supreme Court re-
fused to denounce the current,
often politically-tainted, redis-
tricting practice and ruled that
it is allowable for states to
break with the once-a-decade
"Last month's Supreme
Court ruling was a step back
for the American people and
unfortunately did not get us
any closer to establishing a
fair redistricting process," said
Congressman Boyd. "Redraw-
ing congressional district
maps for political gain divides
communities of interest, polar-
izes Florida voters along parti-
san lines, and silences the con-
stituency. We need meaningful
changes in the way we elect
that will take redistricting
power away from politicians
and give it back to the people
of Florida where it belongs."
Congressman Boyd is a
cosponsor of the Fairness and
Independence in Redistricting
Act (HR 2642). This legisla-
tion calls for an independent,
bipartisan commission in each
state to redraw congressional
district maps every 10 years
and restricts redistricting ef-
forts from taking place be-
tween census cycles.
Re-districting is traditional-
ly conducted every 10 years,
following the decennial cen-
sus, to ensure equal population
in each congressional district.
Many have come to view the
process as a partisan opportu-
nity to strengthen some in-
cumbencies and weaken the
chances of their political op-
ponents. Due in part to the re-
districting system, 95 percent
of incumbents retained their
US House seats in the 2004
election, and only seven seats
out of 435 changed hands
from one major party to anoth-

dence in Redistricting Act has

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
A number of anti-environment members of
Congress are pushing hard to open our coasts
to oil and gas drilling. But have they consid-
ered the true price of drilling off our magnifi-
Their proposed "solution" to America's ener-
gy problems is ineffective, misguided and
short-sighted, not to mention that it will do
nothing to cure us of our "addiction" to oil.
Offshore drilling would only produce a few
months' worth of fuel that won't even be avail-
able for another seven years.
The meager benefits of drilling are far out-
weighed by the costs and risks:
1) Offshore drilling would produce huge,
amounts of mercury and other toxic pollution
that would threaten marine ecosystems and
endanger public health.
2) Drilling would threaten dolphins, mana-
tees, sea turtles and other sensitive marine
3) The risk is not just offshore-an oil spill
could contaminate Florida's beaches in as little
as 24 hours.
There are faster, cheaper, cleaner and longer-
term solutions to meeting our energy needs in-
cluding increasing fuel efficiency standards,
and expanding our investment in wind and so-
lar power. Unlike coastal drilling, these solu-
tions would start saving families and business-
es money today and protect our coastal waters,
beaches, marine wildlife and economies. Con-
gress must learn to take the long view and con-
sider the true costs of its energy proposals.
Drilling off our coasts is simply not an accept-
able solution to America's energy problems.

A balanced approach to
By Jeffrey Lyash
Last month, Gov. Jeb Bush signed into law the
state's comprehensive plan for a diverse, reliable and
secure energy future for Florida. The Florida Renew-
able Energy Technologies and Energy Efficiency Act
aims to ensure that our state takes a balanced ap-
proach to meeting the energy needs of our residents
over the next generation.
Growth is part of our landscape in Florida. We see
its benefits and challenges every day. But while our
needs to expand roads and schools are often more vis-
ible, the need to plan and build electric facilities for
the future is just as critical fi even though it occurs
largely behind the scenes.
Our state adds 1,000 new residents every day. Small
communities and cities alike are getting larger. Our
homes are also increasing in size-by more than 50 per-
cent, on average, since 1970. With more living space to
cool and heat, more electronics in our daily lives, and
more of us living and working here, we know our sys-
tem of generating and distributing electricity must
grow to keep pace.
When our customers flip a light switch, they expect
the light to come on, with no "all circuits busy" mes-
sage or delay in response. Progress Energy is commit-
ted to ensuring that same level of electric system reli-
ability in the future. The solution is a balance of exist-
ing resources, strategic power purchases, evolving
technologies, increased energy efficiency and new
Energy efficiency remains critical
Recently, the State of Florida approved Progress En-
ergy's plan to increase financial incentives for several
energy-efficiency programs we offer to our customers.
The goal is to attract new participants to the pro-
grams, and to continue to educate contractors and
builders on energy-efficient construction, because do-
ing so helps to manage energy resources now and in
These-programs provide real benefits, not only in
reduced costs for our customers, but in delaying the
need for new power plants. Over the last 25 years, our
customers have saved more than $750 million in ener-
gy costs through participation in efficiency programs-
representing more than 10 billion kilowatt-hours of
electricity that did not have to be generated (roughly
equivalent to the city of Orlando's power use over two
years), and representing a significant reduction in en-
Investing in renewables and technologies to power the
our state's energy future
We continually seek cleaner, newer ways to pro-
duce energy for our customers. We have partnered
with the state and federal government and other com-
panies and agencies in investing in hydrogen fuel-cell
projects, as well as solar projects at schools, around
the state and in other areas, including Florida's first
hydrogen vehicle fueling station.
We've signed a contract to purchase the energy gen-
erated by a planned power plant in central Florida
that will use a bamboo-like grass as its fuel source. Re-
newable biomass generation projects such as this one
can help reduce the need to burn other fuels, and they
provide significant environmental benefits.
Making the most of existing resources .
Meanwhile, we continue to operate the most diverse
mix of power plants in Florida in meeting the needs of
1.6 million households and businesses. That diversity
helps ensure a reliable, affordably priced supply of
electricity even when fuel prices and supplies are
volatile and makes us less reliant on foreign energy
sources. And we're investing to ensure that the gener-
ation of electricity from that mix of resources is ac-
complished in an environmentally sound manner.
Developing new sources of electricity
We also know that even with an increased emphasis
on energy efficiency and more investment in alterna-
tive energy sources, we must plan and build new
sources of electricity generation to meet Florida's
As previously announced, we're evaluating sites for
new generation (including the possibility of both nu-
clear and clean-coal plants). We're undertaking a
comprehensive process fi one that will lead us to in-
vestments that make the most sense for our customers
and communities. Siting and building power plants,
and the associated transmission, takes many years
and involves many perspectives. Even though we
won't make a final decision to proceed for some time,
we need to act now to keep options viable for the fu-
ture. We expect to name a potential nuclear plant site
in the coming months.
Together, we're working to create an environmen-
tally responsible, balanced energy solution, so that the
reliable and efficient electric system,that brings op-
portunity, comfort and dependability today will con-
tinue to energize our lives, our communities and our
state in the future.

took Bill Torrey of St. Si-

for the first two hours of the

11 more trout, including two
for Bill over 24.5-inches
long! Not to be outdone,
Monty caught a 25.5-inch
long trout on a seven-inch
pigfish! We caught two reds,
one 24" and one 22" long,
while, we were trout fishing
in 5.5 to 6.5 feet of water!
The reds hit five and six-
inch-long pinfish like they
were starving to death.

sandwich break, and I stood

Croquet challenges mind and body
WHITAKERS, N.C.- Michael O'Brien said anyone looking
to compete in a sport that will push their mind and body to the
limits, croquet may be just the game they are looking for.
"Croquet is a challenging game both mentally and physical-
ly," said O'Brien. "You have to possess a reasonable
amount of athletic skills and intellect.
"It's like chess on grass."
However, O'Brien's wife, Daphne, said the
game of croquet is definitely not for the timid. "The pr(

Croquet is a recreational game, and also, a
competitive sport that involves hitting wooden needle in a
or plastic balls with a mallet through hoops said O'Brif
embedded into the grass playing arena, called a every 1,0
The form of the game played by O'Brien, exposed to
Association Croquet, has a complex and exten- one will
sive set of rules that are agreed upon interna-
tionally and is played in numerous touina- jUSt hap[
ments in countries throughout the world. that |
Croquet was invented in Ireland during the
1830s and taken to England, quickly becoming
a favorite pastime of the aristocracy in the 1850s. It eventually
made its way to the United States, Canada, Australia, and
France and although never becoming hugely popular, it has con-
tinued to maintain a substantial following throughout the years.
Croquet was an event at the. 1900 Summer Olympics and
Roque, believed to be 'a variation of the game, was an event at
the 1904 Summer Olympics.
More unusual and easier xariatirns of the game-that have
been invented include Golf Croquet, eXtreme Cloquet and Bi-
However, O'Brien said that Association Croquet should not
be confused with these versions or the back-yard game many
.people associate with the game.
"It's a lot different than playing with a set you can buy at Wal-
Mart," said O'Brien. "That's more like checkers on grass."
In Association Croquet players can take multiple shots in one
turn provided they either hit the ball through the correct hoop
("run" a hoop), or hit another ball. Upon hitting another ball, the
player must play his next shot with the two balls touching. This
is called the "Croquet Stroke," from which the game takes its
The winner is the player who, with each of his balls, runs each
hoop twice in order and strikes the.center peg.
"When I try to explain the rules to people, I usually see a look
of confusion of their faces," said O'Brien. "I don't blame them
though, it took me two years to learn to play."
O'Brien first developed an interest in the sport after he and
Daphne moved to Edgecombe County, North Carolina in 1986.
A native of Wilmington, O'Brien was a professional freelance
photographer in Raleigh, working frequently with The News
and Observer and The Associated Press.
Daphne, originally Daphne Hamm of Tarboro, was an English
professor at North Carolina State Uniiver ''sit'! "'1 ''0."'". ', n,
Despite their successful careers in Raleigh, the O'Brien's
wanted to simplify their lives, deciding to move to Michael's
,grandfather's farm outside of Whitakers.
"This is a eighth-generation owned family farm," said
O'Brien. "I always knew that I wanted to eventually move out
here and live.
"So \\e went.the route of Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor (of the
popular 1960s television show "Green Acres")."
;The O'Briens now own and operate Fishing Creek Flower
Farm, a fresh-cut flower business that services florists as well as
customers, as well as leasing out farm land to area farmers.
Daphne is also a freelance writer and editor.
"More editing than writing lately," she said.
:Shortly after moving into their new home, O'Brien purchased
a croquet set for the yard.

own regulation size (84 feet wide and 105 feet long) croquet
lawn at his Whitakers home, dragging and leveling the lawn

Residents living in and
around the Live Oak com-
munity can be screened to

ing will be at the First Ad-
vent Christian Church on
Friday, Aug. 4. The site is

A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack," is -ranked as

related to: blocked arteries
which can lead to a stroke,
aortic aneurysms which
can lead to a ruptured aor-
ta, and hardening of the ar-
teries in the legs, which are
a strong predictor of heart
disease. Also offered for
men and women, is a bone
volve the use of ultrasound density screening to assess
technology, and scan for their risk for osteoporosis.

from having a major
stroke." William and Harri-
Each screening requires
10 minutes or less to com-
plete. A complete vascular
screening package, includ-
ing the stroke/carotid
artery, abdominal aortic
aneurysm and ankle
brachial index (hardening
of the arteries) screenings is
$109. Sign-up for a com-
plete vascular package; in-
clude the osteoporosis
screening and pay only

garding the screenings or to

Life Line Screening was es-
tablished in 1993, and has
since become the nation's
leading provider of vascular
screenings. Over 60 ultra-
sound teams are on staff to
travel to your local communi-
ty, bringing the screenings to
you. These non-invasive, inex-
pensive and painless, ultra-
sound tests help people identi-
fy their risk for stroke, vascu-

Scalloping in Taylor County Coastal Waters
Taylor County is one of the
few places in Florida where
you can harvest your own
scallops. You'll .find scallop-,
ing opportunities along .our
entire coastline, including
Keaton Beach, Hagen's Cove
and Steinhatchee. This
unique activity is fun for the
whole family and requires
minimal resources to get

Scallop season runs July 1
through Sept. '10. Basically,
the only materials you need
for scalloping are a snorkel
mask, fins (or water shoes)
and a mesh bag
O n c e
dil her's flag to
snorkel in the water and a
recreational saltwater fishing
license to keep things legal
(the license is relatively inex-
pensive and easy to acquire).
Whether you jump on a
boat with a friend or rent your
own', steer the watercraft out
of the river, away from fresh
water and into the grass flats.
Scallops congregate in shal-
low water hidden in manatee
and turtle grass. If you see a
large group of boats in a cer-
tain area, chances are they've
found a "sweet spot" with lots
of scallops. You should have
some luck around the same
vicinity. If you see one scal-
lop shell, there's bound to be
more around. (Hint: Before
you head out, ask around to
find out where the hot spots
are for the season. Word trav-
els fast in a small town, so
most of the locals who hang
out around the docks and the'
marina employees should be
in the know.)
Of course, not everyone an-

After you've pulled in your
fair -share (the limit is two
gallons of whole scallops or
one pint of meat per person;
10 gallons of whole scallops
or 1/2 gallon of meat per
boat), head back to shore to
get them cleaned. Before you
begin the task of cleaning
your catch, be sure to get
some instruction. to help
move things along. You might
have thought it easy enough
to get them out of the water,
but it's not so simple getting
scallops to come out of their
shells. What you'll need: a
place to set up shop (most
marinas have ample facili-
ties), a knife or other sharp
flat object to open the shell, a
spoon to scoop out the scal-
lop and a container to hold
the meat. Although it caii tke
up to three hours to cleat! a
boat's linit of scallops, most
folks find that the time passes
much faster with, a little mu-
sic, a few cool drinks and lots

By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
Is it me or is it just hot! I'm
drinking a gallon and a half of
water each day on the water
and still feel like cotton when
I arrive back at the dock. If
you are going out, bring am-
ple water and then some, just
in case the trip is longer than
expected due to a break down
or more hopefully, a bounty of
fish. Dehydration is a serious
consideration this time of
year. I have a heat gun on-
board, and I measured deck
temperatures of over 115 de-
grees. It is hot, so do bring a
couple of extra gallons of
fresh. water for insurance.
Well enough about the weath-.
er, let's talk fishing... Water
temps are at 88 degrees! It's
hot for the fish, too. Neverthe-
less, kingfish are still hanging
around. I'm not talking about
the 10-12 lb 'snake' kings; I'm
referring to a good king of 30
pounds or more! How do you
catch them you ask? Find an
area 6-12 miles offshore
where the bait fish are flutter-
ing on the slick seas ofsum-
mer and start chumming. I use
left-over bait and chop it up
but you can buy the frozen
blocks as well. Keep the slick
steady but light. I set one live
bait back on a float rig and an-
other free-lined; both on the
stem. Then I put out two bot-
tom rigs on the forward rod
holders (one port the other
starboard), loaded with a
frisky livey. One cannot beat a
live blue runner by the way.
Now you can sit and wait for
the action, but. an excellent
'time killer' is to drop down
some squid and catch some
grunts, sea bass and porgies in
the mean time. Not only does
this put some delightful fillets
in the fish box, but activates
the area making it far more at-
tractive to the big game fish,
cobia,. kings, as well as,
grouper. Catching reef fish is
a-win-' in situation, even if it
is just catch and. release. Fish

pen within an hour or so, try
another spot and do the same
thing. Sooner or later your re-

in 70' but folks have be catch-

Drifting allows one to cover
more bottom. At times the
fishing may seem tedious, but
the next moment all rods are
double over. In the middle of
all that mayhem, either toss a
marker jug or punch mark on
the GPS and anchor up on the
spot once things settle down.
Remember, one hot spot (not

While bopping around off-
shore this week, schools of
dolphin fish have run by the
boat. Be prepared with light
tackle spinning rods. Ready is
this...the main line tagged
with a 15 lb leader line at-
tached to a single 1/0 hook
and a small bucket of chopped
up squid or fish in the cooler.
Once you see the school,
throw out a couple handfuls
of chum to keep the fish
around the boat. Then break
out the light tackle with the
same chunks. When.the fish
stop biting the chunks of
meat, switch to small jigs,
small live bait (if.you have it),
or small spoons or plugs. The
dolphin aren't very big but
they are a tasty rendition to
'the cooler. Trout are still hold-
ing in' the deep grass beds.
Jigs and strips of pinfish or
mullet are a good bet worked
low and slow through the bed.
Always drift a live bait behind
the boat; one never knows
what will hit the live bait. It
may be a trophy trout or
something that loves to eat the
trout. Use' a steel leader if you
care to land a shark, if not use
mono-filament and you might
pick up a beautiful tarpon or a
cobia may make your day.
Redfish are always around. I
would drift silently up the
creeks on an incoming tide
and work the banks with gold
spoons or spinner baits like a
bass fishermen. The waters
are gin clear so accurate and
long cast lend to better suc-
cess. Don't spend your time
fetching lures off the bank
due to poor casting. Anyway,
things are still bending poles
and the scallops are abundant

Seafood cooking made easy
Do you know'that one to
two servings of fish per week
can have measurable health
benefits, according to many
doctors and dieticians? This is
due in large part to the omega
3 oils found in many types of
seafood, including salmon,
tuna and other heartier fish.,
Omega 3 oils are valuable in
the fight against coronary dis-
ease, high blood pressure,
arthritis, asthma and depres-
sion. What's more, seafood is
one of the only types of food
that contains these oils in high
Despite its many health ad-
vantages, people oftentimes
do not consistently add
seafood to their list of home-
cooked foods. One reason may
be that the'. believe seafood is
difficult'to prepare. On the
contrary; cooking seafood can
be as easy as some of your
standard menu items, particu-
larly if you rely on products
and recipes, that l ill nmake cre-
ating inningig dishes that
much easier. In fact, it can be
as simple as removing a fillet
from an individual vacuumed
package and placing it on the
grill, in the oven or in the mi-
SAlways choose seafood
that is bright -and shiny, with
most of its scales intact and
adhering tightly to the skin.
Each species has characteristic
markings and colors which
fade and become less pro-
nounced as the fish loses
freshness. If you do not have a
seafood merchant in your area,
consider seafood that has been
prepared and packaged to
maintain freshness and flavor.

The human body is well equipped to neutralize'and dispose of
toxins through the liver, spleen and an assortment of eliminative
channels (i.e., the kidneys, skin and lungs). However, as doctors,
nurses and patients alike can all attest, the human body is rarely
in the ideal condition. Daily contact with toxins, which can be
Consumed through foods or water or even through the air, make
this even more of a reality. A regular exposure can do great
damage to even the most physically fit human body.
As eliminative channels continue to be under a constant
onslaught, particularly the colon, those channels can gradually
begin to break down and malfunction, causing a'host of
COLON FUNCTION AFFECTS THE ENTIRE BODY
Colon health should be taken seriously. Doctors say a healthy
colon will produce 2 to 3 bowel movements per day. But for
many this is riot a reality. Inr many ,cases, all waste is not
expelled from the body for.days, weeks, months or even years
later. The resulting toxic buildup can lead to a self-poisoning
known as auto-intoxication, which happens when the bowel
walls become encrusted with stagnant fecal matter. As more
toxins build up, vital nutrients are not able to .be absorbed
through the intestinal wall. Problems including acne, weight
gain, poor circulation, depression, body odor, bad breath and an
overall loss of energy, vitality, and health may be attributed to a
improperly functioning colon.
A colon thick with plaque is likely to become even more so
depending on a person's diet. Refined preprocessed foods with
preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors traditionally\
contain extraordinary amounts of toxic substances. Ho\\ foods
are cooked also plays a role, as deep frying in oil or grilling over
an open fire can leave food increasingly susceptible to harmful
lends a feelingof fullness. Therefore, diets can fail and a person may
overeat when nutrients are not being absorbed .effectively by the
Additionally, a colon that is clogged with waste contributes to
excess weight on it's own. A proper detoxification typically flushes
out between 5 to 15 pounds ofcompacted fecal matter -',which
makes a big difference on the scale and greatly improves absorption
of necessary nutrients. Perhaps the most well-known case of a
clogged colon is with'the famed Western star John Wayne. Upon his
death, doctors discovered Wan new's colon weighed 25 pounds.
One of the problems in combatting toxin buildup in the colon is
the misconception that cleansing procedures are both invasive and
embarrassing. Much of that stigma can be blamed on colonies, a'.
cleansing procedure where the large intestine is irrigated with water
.under gentle pressure as a mean of detoxification. Such a procedure
is rarely met with open ann-S.as is reputation often precedes it.
Fortunately, colon cleansing might now grow more common
thanks to a new, less invasive and more individual option that can be
done right at home. Reguluxv' was designed specifically for those
skeptical of traditional colon- cleansing procedures. It is available in
convenient pill form, making it both easy-to-take and discreet.
Scientifically formulated to flush out the digestive tract, Regulux
removes the same energy-draining toxins that build up on the bowel
\\alls. maintaining healthy colon function, while promoting a
healthier intestinal lining.
As an added bonus, Regulux is made of all-natural ingredients
traditionally used to detoxify the liver, skin, lungs kidneys, and
heart, meaning you won't be ingesting the same toxins your body is
hoping to expeL Such ingredients play a large role in the ability of
Regulux to deliver the following benefits as well:

Survival tips for parents of college-bound kids
(ARA) You once
savored that wonderful
time of the year when
your youngsters went
back'to school. Ah, the
free time ... at last some
emotional and. financial
relief from keeping the
throughout the summer!
But now your bundle of.
joy is college-bound aiid
you both face new,
In a recent study by
Resources, 66 percent of
parents are surprised by
the cost of ancillary
expenses like books,
and.travel. If it/s
starting to look like
your only hope of
continued solvency is to
disown your offspring,
don't despair. With
planning and creativity,
you can both survive
back-to-school days at
the college level.
Here are five tips to
take you through that
first, most challenging
1. Buy all your child's
needed books at the
beginning of the
semester. Buying books
immediately will help
your student stay on
top of reading
assignments and avoid
the stress of hunting for
out of stock books. If
the cost of buying new
on campus leaves you
gasping for air, consider
buying used or discount
2. If your family tells
you how proud they are
that Tommy or Susie is
college bound, smile
sweetly and ask them to
get involved. Encourage
everyone to gather up
throughout their homes
- the average American
household has about
$99 in spare change -
and donate it to the
cause. Equip your
youngster's dorm room
with a coin jar where
your new freshman can
also save spare change.

and even Starbucks. To
find a Coinstar location
near you, visit
3. Forego the cost of
putting a telephone in
apartment, or dorm
room, since he or she
probably already has a
cell phone. Parents can
pre-load minutes on
pay-as-you go plans to
.huge cell phone bills.
Plan regular calls home
times like evenings and
4. Set up a prepaid
VISA or MasterCard as
their primary money
source and limit their
credit card for
emergency use. Prepaid
cash cards teach
budgeting and can be
set up for rapid money
transfer from home.
Coinstar machines offer
a pay-as-you-go card
where you can set up a
dual account. Parents
load at the machine or
online, and the students
can immediately use the
card. Encourage and
help him or her to stay
within budget, rather
than building debt
through the emergency,
credit card. Make sure
he or she is aware that
credit card companies
may come on campus to
solicit business. No
matter how good the
introductory deal may
seem, irresponsible use
of a credit card will
have them (or you)
paying for their largess
for years to come.
5. Reduce student
stress levels by
encouraging your child
to establish good study
habits such as planning
a routine time to study,
showing up for every
class, using on-campus
study.resources and not
with a heavy schedule.
Promote better listening
in class by arming your
child with a tape
recorder. The recorder
will help ensure he or
she doesn't try to write
down every word the
professor says, but
rather listens to the
whole lesson and
focuses on key points
for later review.
