Tension headaches commonly occur in response to stress, depression or
anxiety. This type of headache is associated with pain or discomfort in
the head, scalp, or neck. Activities which require the head to be held in .
one position for a long period of time, such as typing, using a computer,
or using a microscope can cau;e pension headaches iOtheri rigge~r
include sleeping in a cold room or sleeping v'.tl' the ncck in an
abnormal position. Excessive-smoking, excessive us.e oft caffeine. .ind
alcohol use also may cause these headaches. Straining the eyes and
overexertion, as well as fatigue, sinus infection, nasal congestion. colds,
and influenza are other possible causes of tension headaches.
Tension headaches are characterized by a dull, pressure-like sensation
that is not one-sided. The diecomnfort is desI rihed .s a tight band on the
head. Tension headaches may be worsened by stress, fatigue, or noise. If
possible, prevention through avoidance is the best treatment. Stress
management and .relaxation exercises may help. minimize these
headaches. Pain relievers, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and

Q :How do I decide on a dark
o or light color for my house?

Light colors will make your house seen larget:
Dark siding or dark bands of trim will make
our house seem smaller, but will draw more
attention to details. Darker shades are best for
accenting recesses. while lighter tones will
highlight det.uls which project from the wall
surface. On traditional Victorian homes. the
darkest paint is often used-for the window
sashes.

initiates the idea reading can
be exciting.
"Our middle school kids
love to look up all the things
people do to get in the Guin-
ness Book of World Records.
Being from a small town, it's


exciting to have the opportu-
nity to break a record," said
Mapp.
"Along with the governor's
reading initiative, we want to
reinforce that reading is key
in school and life," said Reid.
"We also want to make read-
ing fun."
Reid said since the school
began implementing its Com-
prehensive Reading Plan last
year, reading scores have
gone up' and its FCAT grade
has been raised from a C to a
B.
Currently, the record is
held by the United Kingdom
for 155,528 students from
737 schools who read
William Wordsworth's poem

which became airborne and
skidded over a railroad cross-
ing, according to Live Oak Po-
lice Department reports. Taylor
was thrown from the machine
and struck a sign post-with his
head, according to the LOPD.
LOPD reports indicate he was
not wearing a helmet.
Taylor was taken to Shands
of Live Oak where he was pro-
nounced dead, according to
LOPD reports.
Speed appears to have been
a factor in the mid-aftemoon
crash, say police. No other ve-
hicles were involved.
Billy Malaxvell, who arrived
at the scene as the accident
was unfolding, "saw pieces of
debris flying everywhere," he
said. "I didn't know what hap-
pened."
Taylor was the son of Glen-
da Brim Taylor and the grand-
son of Arnold Brim, both of
Live Oak.
The accident is under inx es-
tigation by Det. Sgt. Ron Sha\\
of the LOPD.

her journey from her home in
McAlpin at the age of 95.
During her lifetime, Haas
set an example for other
women and men in her quiet,
steady service to others. But,
she said in an interview sev-
eral years ago, she felt she
never did anything in her life
to deserve an award and only
knew how to cook and sew.
But those humble words are
typical of this pioneer in ser-
vice to others through Florida
4-H, her church and her com-
munity.
Beginning her love for 4-H
as a child of 10, Haas joined
a Suwannee County 4-H club
and learned to sew and cook.
These talents served her well,
giving her the talents she
used to serve her family,
community and state
throughout her service-ori-
ented lifetime. Haas served
as a 4-H leader for more than
50 years, nurturing children,
teaching them how to do
things that would prepare
them for their future lives as
adults and community lead-
ers.
Haas taught Sunday school
for most of her life, served
on the executive committee
of the Suwannee Missionary
Baptist Association and faith-
fully attended services at her
home church, Pleasant Hill.
Baptist Church, started by,


her mother and father when
she was a child.
A leader in the local orga-
nization for rural women,
Haas was a charter member
of the Suwannee County Ex-
tension Homemakers Council
in 1936. She chaired the
committee to commemorate
50 years in 1986, was chosen
Extension Homemaker of the
Year in 1968, 1972 and 1981.
Haas' club, the Pleasant Hill
Extension Homemakers Club
where she served as president
many times, was chosen as
the most outstanding club for
nine years. Through her ef-
forts, the first fair exhibit
committee was organized, as
well as the Curb Market
Committee that have evolved
through the years. In,1978, as
public information chairman,
she won the state award for
Suwannee County having the,
largest percentage increase in
the state for newsletter sub-
scriptions for the local exten-
sion homemaker's newsletter.
This quiet, enduring leader
among Women at a time
when women didn't necessar-
ily step out and take charge,
always handled her duties
with love and special atten-
tion. Whether it was l adding
a.meeting, gi\ ing a demon-.
stration or helping with the
annual Home and Communi-
ty,Education Christmas Tast-
ing Party that she participated
in.for decades, Haas could be


counted on to do her part.
And more.
She was a woman who
wasn't afraid of issues, wasn't
afraid to learn new ways, and
in her 70s and 80s was learn-
ing about computers, cell
phones, new ideas for women
leaders and enjoyed partici-
pating in leadership training
until her late 80s.-She attend-
ed state and local leader
training and shared her
knowledge with others readi-
ly.
Haas grew up on a farm,
married a farmer and lived on
a farm in McAlpin until her
death. She learned at a young
age how to cook for lots of
farm hands and her family.
When her mother got sick for
an extended period of time,
Haas'took care of the family.
Haas got her name, Willie
Henry Hillhouse, from her
grandmother Hillhouse. The
grandmother had a son
named William Henry who
died. Every time a grandchild
would come along, Grand-
mother Hillhouse wanted it
named William Henry. Be-
cause Haas was the oldest,
girl, Grandmother.Hillhouse
decided she would get the
William Henry name.
She \ as the beloved \\ id-
ow of the late Fred Haas and
the mother of six children, all
raised on the farm and
steeped in community ser-
vice.


Elvis


Continued From Page 1A

'Teddy Mac's fascination with
Elvis has its roots in his mu-
sician father's involvement in
the business. 'In the early
50s a friend of Teddy Mac's
father brought a song to him
to set to music. His dad was
paid $20 for the song brought
to him by Mae Borne Axton
(Hoyt Axton's mother) enti-
tled "Heartbreak Hotel" -
Elvis' first million seller!
Having been in the music'
business and portraying Elvis
for over 30 years, Teddy-
Mac's realistic version of
Elvis has women throwing
scarves (and other items!) all
over'stages at conventions,
festivals, corporate events,
benefits and more. Songs
like "Burnin' Love," "Are
You Lonesome Tonight,"
"You've Lost that Loving
Feeling," "Suspicious Minds"'
and more come alive as Ted-
dyMac Elvis, glittering jump-
suit and all, belts them out

"Breaking Up


The Fallow


Ground"
Sow to yourselves in

break up your fallow ground:
for it is time to seek the LORD,
till he come and rain
righteousness upon you.
Hosea 10:12

have come to this
country...from all over the
world," he said. "We can't
just say, 'let's bus everybody
home.'"
He said that if immigrant
workers weren't employed at
Gold Kist, the company
would process fewer chickens
and would need fewer pro-
ducers. The ripple effect
would harm the entire region-
al economy, he said.
Bekkers, himself an immi-
:grant, came to the U.S. from.
Holland at age 17 in 1962
and served in Vietnam from
1967-68.
Bekkers said all immigrant
workers at Gold Kist are
legally documented and re-
ceive the same pay and bene-
fits as other employees. He
said the problem, is a shortage
of labor in the U.S. "The fact


remains there aren't enough
people for the jobs that are
available in this country," he
said.
Bekkers said a guest work-
er program, such as that pro-
posed by President Bush,
might work, but other solu-
tions deserve consideration as
well.
"Whatever program they
[politicians] come up with,
they need to evaluate the eco-
nomic impact.on our coun-
try," he said. "We've got to
have a system that is orderly
and that allows people who
want to come to this country
to work to come here legal-
ly."
"There are a lot of emo-
tions" connected with this is-
sue, Bekkers said, "but you
still need to have a common-
sense approach. Economical-
ly, it doesn't make sense to
make a radical decision."

North Florida:
US Senator Martinez on the five year
anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001
A day of remembrance was held here
in America and around the globe on the
anniversary of 9/11 Monday, Sept. 11.
Five years ago, on a clear September
morning, serenity was broken by death
and destruction.
What happened in New York, in
Washington, and in Pennsylvania that
day-we will never forget. We will never
forget the nearly 3,000 people whose
lives were lost on that day; we will nev-
er forget their families; and we will con-
tinue to honor their lives by defending
our freedom and fighting against all-
those who wish our Nation harm.
Much has happened in the last five
years since Sept. 11, 2001. Our govern-
ment has responded in a variety of ways.
So that we could better "connect the
dots" in the future, the Department 'of
Homeland Security was established arid
later, a Director of National Intelligence.
was put into place so that our intelli-
gence community could work together.
more seamlessly. Numerous security up-
grades have been put into place across
our country, new technologies have been
developed and implemented to curb the
advances of terrorists, and we are safer
now than we were then.
Over the last five years, we have.
waged an unprecedented and global
campaign against terrorism. America is
safer because 'we have had the Patriot,
Act. Our families are $afer'because we
have had the surveillance necessary' to
make sure that' those.who are speaking
on telephones with al Qaida operatix es
overseas are being monitored. Our"Na-,
tion is safer because we have pursued,
captured and interrogated terrorists and
used that information to capture other,
high-ranking, al Qaida leaders. We are ,
safer because we've had the leadership,
tenacity and the opportunity to pursue.
terrorists wherever 'they may go.,.
Our campaign against terrorism has
been done, in a comprehensive way with.
cooperation from other countries. And it
has been done utilizing all the power
that the state has. not only militarily, but
through the surveillance of terrorist
training camps, a strong diplomatic front
working \ ith our allies, and through fi-
nancial means-watching and seizing the
bank accounts from where terrorists
draw their funding. ,
Our comprehensive efforts are about
keeping America safe. As we remember
those who died on 9/11, we also must
remember that we're not.safe yet. We're
safer. We've been kept safe, but we must
continue the vigilance, we must continue
our determined campaign against terror-
-ists and the states that sponsor terrorism.
Thanks to the f.ithfill leadership and
resohle of all those that serve to protect
Sus, especially our armed forces ,\ho gi\e
so much, no other attacks ha\ e occuned
S.q n American soil to date. We must con-
tinue to defend freedom here at bome
and abroad. As a member of the United
States Senate. I u ill continue to work
with mi\ colleagues on both sides of the
aisle and in both houses of Congress to


COMMENTARY

US Senator Mel
make sure that we continue to devote
the necessary resources 'to this continu-
ing mission.
As our President said on that mourn-
ful day five years ago, "A great people
have been moved to defend a great na-
tion. Terrorist attacks can shake the
foundations of our biggest build ng s,
but they cannot touch the foundationn of
America. These acts shattered steel, but-
they cannot dent the steel of American
resolve." Our Nation will never forget
those lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and we can
demonstrate our continued commitment
to their lives and memories through our
unending defense of Democracy and our
blessed and beloved United' States of
America..
Martinez introduces the RAISE Act
Martinez introduced the Raising
Achievement through Improving Sup-_
plemental Education (RAISE) Act, a bill
to help low-performing students, achieve
academic success. The RAISE Act (S.
38641 is modeled after "iieiments
occurring in Florida schools \ here af-
ter-school programs are helping students
improve their academic performance.
"A key component of No Child Left
Behind is going largely unused. Stu-
dents who need access to after school
tutoring should have,it and parents-
should knov. it's axalilable."N Martinez
said. "IThe RAISE Act \%ill help students
achieve academic success Aind help raise
the performance of lo\' -pei forming.
schools." '
The RAISEAct targets the Supple-'
mental Edticationjl Ser teces iSESi pio-
gram-a program implemented as pai 0of
No Child Left Behind and designed to
be an innovative, after-school tool to
help students increase their academic.
achievement.
Guantanamo transfer brings
terrorists closer to facing justice
Martinez made the follow ing state- .:
ment'in response to Presidenit Bush's
announcement that 14 al Qaeda de-
tainees have been transferred to the US
military prison at Guantanamo Bay,
Cuba. Martinez said, "No doubt that
these are people who have had the goals,
in mind of the Islamic tenorists fhich
is simplN' to kill Americans. destroy our.
way of life. and to thin art America in its
efforts to be a force in the world, a
force for good. These people have been
interrogated and it is appropriate that.
they now be put into some process by
which they will be brought to justice.
"They should .not be tried in the nor-
mal process' because these are combat-
ants, these are people who in a way
were militarily opposed to us, and so I
think the appropriate way to try them is
going to be in a way that Congress is
developing to prosecute and to provide
a measure of justice to these terrorists."
Alternative fuels critical component,
to meeting US energy needs
Martinez said Florida needs to suc-'
cessfuill\ dex elop the use of alternative'e..
fuels Martinez participated in the Uni-
\ersirt of Florida's Alternatx e Fuels
Forum. "Florida's Road'to Energy Inde-
pendence The Promise of Alternatiii e


Martinez News
Fuels" where he highlighted the need
for the US to reduce reliance on f6reig4r
sources of oil while promoting Florida'S
iole in developing renewable energy
sources.
In August, Martinez secured a com-
promise in the US Senate that would
give Florida a 125-mile buffer from off-
shore oil drilling in Florida's Gulf until
the year 2022. Martinez has urged that
in the meantime, the.US needs to find
ways to decrease our dependence on
fossil fuels and harness the promise of
alternative fuels.
Martinez was joined by more than 90
stakeholders from around the state to
discuss the importance of developing al-,
ternati e fuels, the challenges to over-
come in distribution, and howincen-
tives can aid in the development of the
alternative energy market.
Senator Martinez: Additional
$100 million hurricane
assistance coming to Florida
Martinez elcomned the announce-
ment b) the US Department of Housing
anid Urban Development (HUD) that '
F16rida'will receive $100,066,518 in
supplemental Community Development'
Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds.
The funds are available for disaster re-
cc cier, related to'hurricanes \Vilma,
Rita, and Kaiirina.
"Florida's recovery is not yet coin-
plete. This $100 million provides anoth-
er critical layer of capital that \\ ill help'
families and entire communities with :
the most basic of needs," said. Martinez;
"As thei former housing secretarN,.I un-'
derstand the importance that the CDBG
programri plays in local communities. I
applaud HUD and Secretary Jackson for
directing these much-needed funds to
Florida."

Charm For Centennial

Ball


By Frank Dorman
Grace, elegance and charm filled the Suwannee county
Coliseum Saturday evening, as Live Oak residents gathered to
honer the occasion of their city's 100th birthday.
Jimmy C. Newman of Louislana provided the music and
citizens provided the fun as they tripped the light fantastic at the

and-listen music before getting down to some sure 'nuff hoe-down
tunes for another three hours. The gymnasium was ready for all
of those pounding feet; the Ball committee had taken care to see
that plenty of grits were spread out across the floor for
maneuverability.
The ladies were dressed in their long gowns befitting the oc-
casion, and the gents were outfitted to beat the band. There were
no top hats, but straw hats could be seen bobbing up and down


throughout the large crowd of dancers,
AFTER THE ibwEE OF ACTIVITIES and Saturday's show
and dance, everyone went home with plans to celebrate Live
Oak's Bicentennial in 2078; but the hard working Centennial
Committee members are hopeful that someone else will handle
that one.

cChillabration Cakes'


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
The Bulldogs' varsity cheerleading
squad is doing more than tossing pom
poms into the air these days. They can
now toss the girls, thanks to the guys.
SHS seniors Josh Jahnke and Dustin
Baker have brought a bit of strength
and gymnastics to the cheerleading
squad. And as a result the team can
tackle more complex stunts.
Both guy cheerleaders were asked to
jump on board when the squad caught
wind of their flipping abilities.
* Josh was cornered first by the team.'
"We saw how Josh could backflip and
thought it would be cool to have a boy,
on the squad," said Toi Herring, who
has been a cheerleader for several
years.
After enduring begging and pleading
from the girls, Josh finally gave in and
became the first guy cheerleader in
Suwannee Bulldog history.
"Josh is the first boy ever (to be on
the squad)," said Jillian Buchanan, who
has cheered all through high school. "It
helps with stunts and they are really
loud ... when they want to be."
"I've been in gymnastics for many
years," said Josh. "This is my third year
cheering."
Dustin, who has also been involved


in gymnastics, came on board next. He
is in his second year of cheering.
"When he first got started, all Josh
could do was flip. We
had to teach him every-
thing else," said Toi with
a laugh. "Dustin was
easier to work with be-
cause he has born tal-
ent."
"The amount of stunts
they can do is amazing,"
said varsity cheerleading
sponsor Ashley Lundy. "The .
guys are much stronger and
physically more able to lift.
The squad could only handle
a few basic stunts before."
One such stunt is a bas-
ket toss, where cheerlead-
ers are tossed into the air.
The squad also does flicks,
where a guy throws a cheerleader
on up his shoulders.
Cheerleaders went to an en-
durance camp and a cheer camp this
summer. Jillian said the endurance
camp was very challenging this year.
In. the past couple of years the SHS
cheering squad has been competition-
oriented. They had the opportunity\ to
compete in Gainesville and Ocala. This
year, focusing on school spirit and
crowd involvement will be highlight-
ed.

Suwannee High varsity cheerleading
squad's new sponsor is no stranger to
cheerleading. Their sponsor, Ashley
Lundy, cheered for SHS all through
high school.
Lundy, a science teacher at SHS,
took the lead for the squad just more
than a week ago.
"So for me, it was a pretty easy deci-
sion to take this over," she said reflect-
ing on her cheerleading experience.
Lundy said the stunts have gotten
much more complex than in her cheer-
leading days. Chants have also replaced
many cheers to gain more crowd in-
volvement.
Lundy said one, key goal for the
squad this year is getting back to
school spirit rather than focusing on
cheerleading competition.
Lundy isn't the only cheerleader fan
in her family,
"When my 3-year-old sees the cheer-
leaders, she gets really.excited. She
loves going. to the games with me," she
said:. "They're acruall going to cheer at
her birthday party this month."

No change
There will be no change to
lobster fishing regulations in
Florida for at least a year
while the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (F\\C') conttinles ts
comprehensive evaluation of
the spiny lobster fisher, The
FWC agreed recently to e\-.
tend its study another year
and also approved a draft rule
to continue its current suspen-
sion of commercial trap re-
duction in the lobster fishery.
: The FWC began a three-
year evaluation of Florida's
spiny lobster fishery, includ-
ing biological, economic and
social issues, in early 2004
and was scheduled to com-
plete its work in 2006. During
the evaluation process, the an-


ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What, if any, impact does chewing
tobacco have on oral health?
A: At least one study conclude that chewing
tobacco users are four times more likely to
develop tooth decay that non-users. The
study, overseen by an epidemiologist and
dental officer at the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, compared men who
used chewing tobacco and compared them
with men who used other forms of tobacco
and those who used no tobacco products.
The study included roughly 14,000 males
aged 18 and above. Researches interviewed
them about tobacco use, dentists examined
them and then calculated the number of
decayed or filled teeth among them. They
found that men who used only chewing
tobacco had a higher adjusted average
number of decayed or filled permanent teeth
than did those who used only snuff. It was
also true when chewing tobacco users were
compared with those who used only
cigarettes or more than one form of tobacco
and with those who had never used tobacco.
The study also showed that men who use
chewing tobacco were four times more likely
to have a decayed or filled root surface than
those who never used tobacco. Talk with
your dentist abut the dangers of tobacco.

Mango


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
It was a day you wish you
could buy for a later time
when you just need "the" per-
fect day.
The sky was Carolina blue
with' high, wispy, brush
stroked clouds filling in very
little of the background. The
spring air was cool; that tem-
perature where you could slip
on a light jacket but choose
not to in defiance of memories
of the blast heat of July and
August. The Gulf was one foot
rolling glass so clear you
could pick out bottom features
on the fly. Except for the loud
knock of ,opportunity, the
mnoming was still with purring
Honda's swishing us away
from land into adventures.
Days like this don't happen of-
ten enough.


My mind was exploding as
to where to start. An epiphany
came to me. "Ya'll relax, we've
got good road so we're taking
a long ride," I said to the crew
of four young men Matthew,
Mark, Luke and John.
No kidding, I had the apos-
tles on board. That could ex-
plain the perfect day ... they
were the sons of a preacher
with a good sense of humor.
They told me they invited
Thomas but doubted he'd
show up. Just kidding.
The ride was like taking an
hour and a half bus ride down
the interstate. All I had to do
was keep da light hand on the
wheel and watch for turtles
which were popping up with
regularity. When we'd pass
them by, I'd push mark on the
GPS and label the waypoint

get the idea.
Turtles hang around good
bottom and I was using them
like fish informants. Matthew,
Mark and John with Little B
did the bean bag flop for most
of the ride out. I was jealous
watching them cat nap. Luke
kept me company on the cap-
tains' bench. We chatted about
everything.
It can be so interesting sim-
ply listening to others. I'm
finding that most people are
more similar than different; it
doesn't matter black, white or
somewhere in between. We
should take more time to listen
to one another and less time
listening about one another.
The long ride out didn't
seem much time after all. A
10th of mile before my way-
point I eased the throttles back
to just a mild idle.
Little B,' our mate, got the
marker jug ready, setting it, at
eighty five feet.
The GPS zeroed out and the
sonar sparkled with life below
us.
"OK" I said to Little B.
He tossed the jug off the
boat. The squared kitty litter
jug roll flopped until the four
pound a.indo%% %eight hit the
bottom. .
I swung the boat,: around
pulling back up to the jug to'
watch for the tell tale flow of
\\ ater aroutid the jug to help
me guess the anchor heading.
Splashing the anchor out south
west of the jug, I powered
back. The boat came to rest
forty feet up current and ever'
so slightly right of the jug.
Little B had pre-rigged four
big spinning rods, having a
pair in. the rod holders on ei-,
ther side of the boat. The rig-
ging wasn't complicated. He
simply tied a short shank 5/0
9174 Mustad hook onf the end
of the 30 pound test main line.'
I was getting ready'to ex-
plain to the guys what we.
were going io do as Little B,
pulled a bag of ,esterda 's
bait from the bait cooler. He
set the bag of bait on top of
the cooler, slid a five gallon
bucket in front of the cooler to
Nit on and played the role of a
rough Sushi chef dicing the
leftover sardines into small
chuink-s Most chunks were put
in a plastic tra}, some chunks
he slung off each side of the
bojt. "Here's the deal,"I start-
ed "\\e're going to free line
bait chunks out to mangrove..
snapper: we call them man-
gos." .
"Where is the sinker?"
asked Matthew.
"Free line, free line,'it's
French for no sinker" I joked
back.


"How will we know when
we get a bite?" asked Mark.
"'You'll see them eat it."
They all smirked at me.
"You know that feeling you
get when you stub your toe on.

see more fish coming up for
the chum. "Let's go, we're not
going to catch a thing here.
Do you think?" I said being a
comedian. They didn't pay me'
any attention.
Little B hooked a chunk of
bait on each of their hooks.
."Gently under hand cast the
bait towards the front of the

stops eating until ya'll figure
out where the flying potato
came from., But'if a bowl of
potatoes w\as brought to the
table and sat in the middle, no
one would become startled or
stop eating. Right? It is the
same thing w ith the fish. Lit-
tle B has got dinner started,
the chum. No%\ all you have
to do is gently, so the bait
sta\s on the hook. toss your.
bait towards the front of the
boat and let the current serve
your "potato." "I'll show you,"
I said. 1, flipped the sardine
chunk forward and aw ay from.
the boat. I and the apostles
watched the bait drift back in
the sluggish current. The
more it drifted back the deep-'
er it got. "Pull line from your
reel by hand so the bait drops
back..naturally. 'i without the'
jerking motion you would get
if you x\hipped line from the
rod tip. Mangos' can be skit-
tish," I told them.
When the bait was behind
the motors and 10 to 12 feet
down, a horde of mangos'
swarmed around it until one
darted in and snatched it up. I
flipped the bail on the spin-
ning rod closed just before the
line became taunt. The rod tip
bowed down due to the fish
and me setting the hook. The
drag chirped a bit. I handed
the rod back to Luke. "I told
ya'll )ou'd see the fish eat the
bait," I said smiling. .
Luke landed a. fine four
pound mango. The race was
on from there. Two brothers
on one side of the boat and
two on the other side all ab-,
solutely absorbed in fishing.
Little B and I "were either
pulling a fish over the gunnel
or keeping the chum linlego-
ing during the mango melee.
Tw elv'e mangos' from two
to eight pounds were iced and
just as many were lost in an
hour of fast fishing. '
It ended when the mangos'
wised up and stopped feeding.
I had prolonged the bite ,a bit
by tying on a 20 pound leader,


instead of staying with the 30
pound main line, when a fish
broke off. The thinner leader
line ,vas a smidgen less visible
to the mangos that were be-
coming more and more -skit-
tish. \\ hen the mangos
stopped, we simply added a
two ounce bank sinker to our
rigs via a loop- knot in the
main line. The sinker took the
baits to the bottom where we
picked up a few keeper red
snappers. They added more
color to the fish box.
.We spent the rest of our day
working back to Steinhatchee
trolling from one bottom fish-
ing spot ,to the next. Several
grouper and one fine king fish
joined the snappers in the fish
box: It was a great day on the
water. On the ride in I told the
four brothers about lmarinating
the king fish steaks in a half
and half mixture of butter and
soy sauce for fifteen minutes
then putting them on a hot
grill for a couple of minutes
per side. It is a simple wa: to
cook a king The onl\ thing
else to do is sa\ 'BAM' aj xou
sprinkle coarse ground pepper
over the steaks % when you pull
them off the grill No salt is
needed. the soy sauce has that
part covered
At the dock, I told the gm s
to take the king and pick out
'two more fish to- take with
them. They gave me an inqluis-
itive look. "I heard you knew
some ut\ who can do a trick
with three fish and some
loaves of bread."' They
laughed Matthew said, "He
left for awhile, but said He
was coining back some time
later: so we need all the fish
for now."
Thanks for taking your time
to read this. Take care of your-
self and the tackle. Capt. B

"I.want fish from fishing, but
I want a great deal more than

Health to


Your



Heart


Battling weight? Internal


cleansing could be the answer


The human body is w611 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 beunder a constant onslaught, particularly
the colon, those channels can gradually begin to break down and malfunction,
causing a host of digestive problems.
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 not a reality. In
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 ableto be
absorbed through the intestinal wall. Problems including ache, 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.
How 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 toxic substances.
WEIGHT-LOSS BENEFITS
An improperly functioning digestive system can also result in weight gain,
making colon-cleansing a viable option to jump-start weight loss, especially for
those where traditional dieting hasn't worked.
When in peak condition, the intestines will transfer nutrients from foods to the
cells that need them. A blocked colon doesn't allow nutrients to be absorbed in an
efficient manner and poor health can result. Proper nutrition normally satiates the
body and lends a feeling of fullness. Therefore, diets can fail and a person may
overeat when nutrients are not being absorbed effectively by the body.


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 of
compacted 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 Wayne's colon weighed 25 pounds.
GETTING CLEANSED
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 arms, as its 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.
Regulux \\as designed specifically for those skeptical oftraditional 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
walls, 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:
Promotes proper digestion and elimination.
Relieves constipation, gas, bloating and symptoms from lactose intolerance
and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Optimizes the absorption of essential nutrients and vitamins from your food
and dietary supplements.
Promotes softer hair, clear skin and stronger nails.
SCleanses the blood of toxins, yeast and bacteria.
SEliminates discomfort and let you eat dairy products, pizza, burritos, broccoli,
beans without worrying.,

simultaneously cleanse your body, call 1-800-591-3036 for a risk-free trial.

Not many of us have the time or facts we need to analyze local
real estate prices.

A REALTOR, on the other hand, is a professional who takes the
time each day to evaluate trends and compare asking-selling prices
in specific neighborhoods. That can prove invaluable in helping
you determine a realistic, fair market price'for a property.

So whether you're buying, selling or leasing real estate, it makes
perfect sense to look for -the sign of the REALTOR.

In fighting obesity, arm kids with an appetite for change


(ARA) Study after study
confirms that children who
are obese at a young age are
more likely to remain obese
into adolescence and
adulthood, putting them at
risk for numerous
preventable diseases. Yet,
when it comes to finding a
solution to this mounting
problem, we seem to be
spinning our wheels.
For more than a half
century, national initiatives
geared to youth physical
fitness have received
considerable federal and
corporate support. More
recently, concerned groups
have stepped up efforts to
encourage good.childhood
eating habits. Ironically,
though, programs
'combining both sound
nutrition AND physical
activity fundamental
elements of good health --
have generally been
lacking.
"A whole lifestyle
approach is needed if we're


going to conquer childhood
obesity," said Veronica
Atkins, chair of the Dr.
Robert C. and Veronica
Atkins Foundation, which
funds independent,
scientific research in
nutrition and metabolism.
"Just as a race car .cannot
perform well if it uses crude
oil for fuel, the best
physical fitness programs in
the world are not going. to
prevent childhood obesity
as long as young people are
eating junk."
What's more, even some
of the more comprehensive
children's health programs
few have produced little if
any qualitative or
quantitative data. Case in
point: A recent report from
an expert panel on
childhood obesity,
commissioned by the
Institute of Medicine, noted
,that "there is a proliferation
of activity taking place
across the country in
schools, in the community


and states, but precious
little of it has been subject
to evaluation."
This disconnect between
integration and evaluation
is beginning to change,
however, thanks to a
growing number of clinical
researchers who are making
their way into the
classroom. Collaborating
with educators to design
and conduct studies that
apply scientific, methods to
school-based programs,
these researchers are
becoming better equipped
to assess which approaches
work best.
One example of this
collaboration is a lifestyle
intervention lab at the
University of Southern
California (USC),
combining exercise
facilities, cooking
instruction and counseling
in its work to understand
the link between lifestyle,
changes and. adolescents'
risk of obesity and diabetes.


Measurable results, ranging
from weight loss to lower
blood sugar levels,
encouraged the young
participants' continued
commitment to the
program, which many
credit with changing their
lives.
"Research is vitally
important in finding
effective methods for the
prevention of obesity and
other diseases. What we're
finding is that, if given the
resources and options to
make healthy nutritional
choices, kids respond.
positively," said Abby
Bloch, Ph.D., executive
director of programs and
research for the Atkins
Foundation, which helps
foster cooperation among
diverse organizations
seeking solutions to
childhood obesity.
Indeed, getting young
people to "buy-in" to health
programs is a key element
to success. "Life in

Action." an educational
program of the Canada-
based Free the Children
organization, which
provides nutritional and
physical activity education
curriculum to help teach
: oung people how.to make
health\ choices, is one
example. This dynamic
program empowers youth to
positive ely influence each
other through daily food
and acti\ ity choices, by
incorporating workshops,
speeches and training for
students to become
Leadership Ambassadors.
They then initiate their own
school-based actions with,
fellow students to promote
healthy living. No\\ being
implemented at select
schools in the United
States. "Life inAction" has
already resulted in several'
youth-initiated peer
programs.
While research a continue
to investigate what
practices are most effective
in reversing the childhood
obesity epidemic, how do
parents complement these
efforts by fostering lifelong,
sustained healthy eating
habits in their children?
Mrs. Atkins and Dr. Bloch
offer the following
guidelines:
Be aware of and
monitor your children's
health numbers. Ultimately
different approaches work
differently for different
children. but if you know
w hat your child's baseline
cholesterol or body mass
index (BMNI is, you will be
better prepared to detect
changes. Some states have
implemented policies of
measuring and monitoring
students' weight and BMI to
help identify at-risk youth.
Get involved with
community -based health
initiatives. Research has
shown that an integrated
approach to healthy .
li festy les is more effective.
Parents' influence is
important. Buit so is the
influence of peer groups
and other role models.
Look for empowerment
opportunities. Rather than
simple. imposing healthy
food on your children, find
ways to offer incentives and
opportunities for your
children to make the
healthy food selections for
themselk es as well.
Be a voice in your
children's schools and
organizations. Get involved
with the PTA, your child's
sports teams and other extra
curricular activities to
positive ely influence healthy
snack choices and
alternative es to food-related
fundraisers and incentives.
