Life Line Screening offers blood

test for heart and diabetes


Life Line Screening, the nation's leading
provider of mobile preventive health screenings,
is now offering two simple blood tests to detect
the risk of heart disease and diabetes in the state
of Florida.
"The complications of these diseases consti-
tute the number one cause of death in the Unit-
ed States in both genders," said Andrew Manga-
naro, M.D., medical director for Life Line
Screening. "In addition, the risk factors, includ-
ing diabetes, hypertension, obesity, lack of reg-
ular exercise, elevated cholesterol and tobacco
abuse, among others, are extremely common in
the continental United States,"
To make these important screenings more
convenient, Life Line Screening has added com-
plete lipid panel and blood glucose tests to its
existing screenings for stroke, vascular disease,
and osteoporosis.
Both tests are conducted with just a single fin-
ger-stick sample that uses only a few drops of
blood, and lab accurate results are provided im-
mediately. The same equipment is used through-
out physician offices, pharmacies and hospitals
nationwide.
The new screening tests include:
1. Complete Lipid Panel: This comprehensive
test measures four important levels-total choles-
terol, LDL or "bad cholesterol", HDL or "good
cholesterol" and triglycerides. High levels of
cholesterol, particularly LDL, contribute to the
formation of plaque on the artery walls. Plaque
is a major contributor to stroke risk and carotid
artery disease. It also can restrict the flow of
blood and oxygen to the heart, which can cause
a heart attack. HDL is the good kind of choles-
terol because it carries excess cholesterol away
from the arteries. A high HDL level is protective
against cardiovascular disease.
A 10 percent decrease in total blood choles-
terol levels can reduce the incidence of heart
disease by as much as 30 percent. Knowing your
cholesterol levels can help you and your physi-
cian develop a plan to prevent heart disease.
2. Glucose: Glucose is a measurement of the
blood sugar level and is used to determine a per-
son's risk of diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in
which the body does not produce or properly use
insulin-the hormone needed to convert food into
energy. Diabetes is strongly linked with stroke
and heart disease.
A glucose screening will indicate if a person
has "pre-diabetes." This occurs when a person's
blood glucose levels are higher than normal but
not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes.
People with pre-diabetes are at higher risk of
stroke and heart disease. but the\ can delay or
pireent the onset of type-2 diabetes through
lIfestyle changes that reduce the glucose levels.
Life Line Screening's stroke, and vascular
disease screenings involve the use of ultrasound
technology, and scan for potential health prob-
lems related to: blocked arteries which can lead
to a stroke, aortic aneurysms which can lead to
a ruptured aorta, and hardening of the arteries in
the legs, which is also a strong predictor of heart
disease.
A bone density screening is also available to
assess the risk for osteoporosis.


The cost for both of the new blood tests is
$60. When combined with the complete well-
ness package which includes screenings for
stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysms, peripheral
arterial disease and osteoporosis, participants
can receive all six tests for $179.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993,
and has since become the nation's leading
provider of vascular screenings. Over 75 ultra-
sound teams are on staff to travel to your local
community, bringing the screenings to you.
These screenings help people identify their risk
for stroke, vascular diseases, heart disease, dia-
betes, or osteoporosis early enough for their
physician to begin preventive procedures.
To locate a screening in your area, please con-
tact our customer service department toll-free at
877-237-1354.
Facts and stats
Complete Lipid Panel
Cholesterol is a waxy fat that is carried
through the blood streamby lipoproteins.
LDL= low-density lipoproteins (bad choles-
terol)
HDL= high-density lipoproteins (good cho-
lesterol)
A 10 percent decrease in total blood choles-
terol levels' can reduce the incidence of heart
disease by as much as 30 percent.
Total cholesterol less than 200 mg/dL, LDL
less than 130 mg/dL and HDL greater than 40
mg/dL are desirable levels.
LDL and triglycerides require an 8 hour fast-
ing period (no calorie intake).
Total cholesterol and HDL measurements do
not require fasting.
C-Reactive Protein
C-reactive protein is a non-specific marker for
inflammation in the body. It is released into the
bloodstream in response to an infection or injury
or if the blood vessels to the heart are weakened.
Since almost half of all heart attacks affect ap-
parently healthy adults with normal or even low
cholesterol levels, it is important to know your
CRP levels in addition to your cholesterol lev-
els.
A new test for high-sensitivity C-reactive pro-
tein (hs-CRP) can detect elevated levels of CRP
in healthy, asymptomatic adults.
In 2003, the American Heart Association and
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
published cardiovascular risk levels for the hs-
CRP test. A value less than 3 mg/L is desirable.
Fasting is not required for the hs-CRP test.
Glucose (Diabetes Risk)
More than. 20 million Americans have dia-
betes, but nearly 1 iii 3 does not kno\% it.
. Diabetes is strongly linked x ith cardioascu-
lar disease, including stroke and heart disease.
Strokes and heart attacks are 2-4 times more
common in diabetics, occur at a younger age,
and have a much greater death rate,
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in
adults 20-74 years of age and the leading cause
of kidney failure in the U.S.
Fasting glucose levels should be below 100
mg/dL.,
Non-fasting glucose levels should be below
200 mg/dL.

community content profile of the type of publica-
tions we have acquired in recent years,i said Don-
na Barrett, CNHI's president and chief operating

the downstairs part of one house when they
: were leveled.
"I was buried up to my armpits. The stones
were hot because of the friction from the shell
fire," he said.
Rogers' unit dug him out of the rubble 45
* minutes later. Fortunately, he suffered only a
cut knee and injured leg.
The next battle, in the Ardennes forest, troops
"r; fought in three feet of snow. It was about 11 de-
grees and the snow was heavy.
"It was so cold that 10 percent of the men got
frost bite or frozen feet," Rogers said, noting
', that the feet of his closest buddy were left com-
pletely black. .
,-.,. ... The unit slept ii baenents and bombed out
houses, as Well as out in the cold. ?
The fibeilt lfattle Rogers faced "asi at a
'minefield in Berstein, Germany. This incident
also resulted in the most casualties.
"We lost about 65 men in just a seven-eight
hour period there," Rogers said.
Everett Rice, a man Rogers described as his
',' good buddy, was the first killed in that battle.
"I was three feet from him when he was shot
by a machine gun," he said. "I gave him my
portion of morphine we were given by the
: medics, but he died right away."
,^. The Germans opened fire with mortars and
-. flares and almost completely wiped out the unit.
'..( Only four in the unit escaped, Rogers being one
of them.

mines were blowing their legs off. All I could

in action. This report reflected only the first
eight or nine days of February 1945. The ma-
jority of the casualties occurred Feb. 6, 7, and 8'
of that month. Rogers described this period as
his most difficult days in combat.
Rogers was mistakenly reported missing in
action. His parents didn't know he was alive un-
til five months later after he got a chance to call
home.
"My mother got the word in West Virginia. It
liked to have killed her, of course," he said.
"During that battle they were almost all killed,
so they thought I was killed, too."
Though Rogers was not badly wounded, he
has found the emotional effects of war can
leave painful scars as well. About five or six
years ago he began suffering from flash backs
of the battle at the mine field in Berstein.
"'FThey co~~iin during supper rime every
n"iight, and Ijusi rn." he said.
T1 ease the memories, Rogers is sketching
out and preparing o. paint some of his war ex-,
periences as a means of therapy.
Rogers received a purple heart in 1944 for his
service in the battle at Manhay. The most recent
recognition wasthis summer when he was fea-,
tured in the Thunderbolt magazine, a publica-
tion for his unit.
To this day Rogers doesn't know which mem-
bers of his unit mriade it out of the minefield.
"I have a lot of questions to ask about what
happened to my fellow-comrades," he said.
Rogers is planning to attend a reunion in Jan-
uary with those currently operating the 517th
unit and he is eager to seek answers to his ques-
tions. ,
When Rqgers returned home after the war he
left for West Virginia where he married his first
wife. Soon after lie re-enlisted for three more
years, from 1946-1949. After completing three
more years in the military, he became a fire
fighter for several, years. Later he became a
self-employed carpenter building homes.
He built condominiums in south Florida, in-
cluding a'three-story condominium in Delray
Beach. He moved to Suwannee County in
1979. Here he has built several homes, includ-
ing four at the Advent Christian Village.
He is currently married to his wife, Patricia,
who volunteers at the Pregnancy Crisis Center.

Cooper said.
Family, friends and local
leaders congratulated Cooper
for his win at the Suwannee
County Supervisor of Elec-

"I have more respect for
other politicians now," Coop-

As for Lowe, her spirits
were not dampened on elec-

and friends, especially from
Wellborn where she resides..
Called at her home No\ 7,
Lowe was celebrating with
many of her supporters
where about 75 gathered for
a party at her home.

Bekkers:


We're


committed


to Live Oak


Robert Bridges
Democrat Reporter

Gold Kist President and
Chief Executive Officer
John Bekkers, in Live Oak
Nov. 2 for the ribbon-cutting
on a $70 million expansion
of the poultry-processing
plant here, said the new fa-
cility was evidence of the
company's commitment to
Suwvannee County.
"We're committed to be-
ing part of this community
for man.\ ears to come."
Bekkers told the Democrat.
Gold Kist is currently the
target of a hostile takeover
bid by 'nval Pilgruu's Pride.
Pilgrim's Pride launched its
bid in September after nego-
tianons for a possible stock
buN out broke down. Pil-
grim's offered Gold Kist
stockholders $20 a share for
thetr holdings. The stock has
been trading at about that
price since the summer when
Pilgrim's announced interest
in acquinng its rival.
The offer \\as set to ex-
pure Oct. 27, but was extend-
ed last week until Nov 29.
Pilerim's said as of the origi-
nal expiration date. almost
17 nullion Gold Kist shares,
or about 33 percent of all
outstanding shares, had been
tendered and not m ithdiawn,
which is the equivalent of a
provisional sale.
Bekkers said the 33 per-
cent figure w\as not particu-
larly impressive. "We feel
that our shareholders have
voiced then opinions." he
said. "When only 33 percent
have tendered, it tells you
that most of them think the
stock is worth more than
that." He said he thought
thaimrpqs0o tsp ave
tendered are speculalo,
such as hedge fund man-
agers.
Bekkers would not specu-
late as to whether Pilgrim's
would raise its offer. "I have
no sense of what they're go-
ing to do." he said. "The
ball's in their court."
Pilgrim's claims the value
of Gold Kist stock, which
had been trading at about
$13 before buyout talks be-
gan, has been inflated by its
interest m acquiring the
company. Pilgrim's. which
currently trades at about U25
a share. clans its stock has
historically naded at about
r twice the pnce of Gold
Kist's. However, as Bekkers
pointed out. Gold Kist has
onl1 been a publicly-owned
company for two years, so
historical comparisons may
not be of great significance.

LETTER TO


THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
WHY?
I could hardly believe they killed 14 dogs and a lot
of cats on Oct. 17 in Suwannee County, claiming the
city just doesn't have enough money to build a ken-
nel, which as been promised for four years now.
How sad, and what about the animals?
They can go up on our taxes; like mine, from $800
to $4,000 in one year,. Somehow justify that.
They can build a $3 million water tower, to bring
in more business, which even brings more animals
to town.
We can build a by-pass road for $3 million, but we
can't build a simple dog kennel in the city limits to
house animals that otherwise would just roam, re-
produce or starve to death.
How shameful and sad is that?
Now, we have nothing.
I am upset and I believe that if people would have
known, it would have made a big difference in the
outcome.
We have to change this.
It is not fair and it is just not right.
Carla Peppers

Professors James Gwartney
(Florida State University),
Richard Stroup (Montana State
University) and Dwight Lee
(Georgia University), three long-
time colleagues of mine, have re-
cently published "Common Sense
Economics." It's a small book,
less than 200 pages, that address-
es a serious economist dereliction
of duty: making our subject un-
derstandable to the ordinary per-
son.
Public misunderstanding of ba-
sic economic principles leaves us
easy prey to political quacks, char-
latans and assorted hustlers. Part I
of "Common Sense" focuses on 10
key elements of economics that I'll
only briefly describe.
The first is incentives matter.
During the 1970s, gasoline prices
rose dramatically. Immediately,
people did more carpooling and
eliminated unimportant trips. Grad-
ually, they shifted to more fuel-ef-
ficient cars. During the 1980s and
1990s, gasoline prices fell. Again,
people altered their behavior by'
buying more SUVs- and more pow-
erful cars.
Incentives matter under social-
ism, too. In the former USSR,
managers anId employees were
compensated by the number of tons
of glass they produced. Factories
produced glass so thick one could
hardly,see through it. The rules
were changed so that compensation
was made according to square me-
ters of glass produced. Factories
produced glass so thin that it broke
easily.
The second element is there's.
nothing that's free. Politicians talk
about "free education," "free medi-
cine" or "free housing," but that's
nonsense. Resources are required
to produce each of them. Of
course, some people, received these

goods at a zero price, but that does-
n't mean they didn't cost someone,
usually a taxpayer, something.
Their third element is we don't
make all-or-nothing decisions such
as choosing between eating or
wearing clothes, that is, dining in
the nude so we can afford food. In-
stead, we choose between having a
little more food at the cost of a lit-
tle less clothing.
Their fourth element is that trade
promotes economic progress
through encouraging specialization.
That's true whether the trade is be-
tween individuals, regions or coun-
tries. Specialization and trade make
us dependent upon one another, but
not to worry. The world's poorest
people are far more independent
than we. Check out Darfur. You
might see families building their
own shelter, gathering their own
food and heating supplies and mak-
ing their own clothing. The flip
side of the idea that trade promotes
progress, and their fifth element, is
the idea that obstacles to trade
stymie progress. Among these po-
litical obstacles are taxes, licenses,
regulations, price controls, tariffs
and quotas.
Elements six and seven are relat-
ed. Profits direct resources to their
highest value uses. Losses free
misused resources for higher value
uses. People earn income by serv-
ing their fellow man. This link be-
tween serving others and income


gives us incentive to develop tal-
ents and skills and become high-
ly valued.
Elements eight and nine ad-
dress the other keys to progress:
Investment, better ways of doing
things, souind economic institu-
tions and Adam Smith's idea that
market prices direct buyers and
sellers toward activities that pro-
mote the general welfare.
Their 10th element is crucial.
We shouldn't ignore the secondary
and long-term effects of an action.
For example, trade restrictions on
foreign sugar that result in higher
prices for domestically produced
sugar save jobs in. our sugar indus-
try. Because of those higher prices,
major candy manufacturers such as
Wrigley and Brach's moved to
Canada and Mexico to take advan-
tage of lower sugar prices. That re-
sulted in more U.S.,jobs lost than
were saved by the sugar trade re-.
strictions.
"Common Sense," subtitled
"What Everyone Should Know
About Wealth and Prosperity," con-
tains a wealth of information about
the major sources of economic
progress, economic progress and
the role of government, and impor-
tant elements of practical personal
finance. The latter contains finance
principles on how to invest your
money, using the principles of
compound interest and how to get
more out of your money. There's
nothing in the book that goes be-
yond common sense, something
rare these days.

Private Property Rights:


"Slamming the door on Kelo"


By J. Robert McClure
It all began the day before
Thanksgiving 2000. In a land grab
that was to reverberate across the
nation, Connecticut's New London
Development Corporation an-
nounced that an entire neighbor-
hood was to be condemned
through the use of eminent domain
and given to a private company for
"economic development."
Susette Kelo and other area resi-
dents unwilling to sell fought this
land grab all the way to the U.S.
Supreme Court. Arguing that the
City of New London was violating
the "takings clause" of the U.S.
Constitution's Fifth Amendment,
Ms. Kelo and her attorneys were
confident that the High Court
would uphold the rights of the
area's property owners.
After all, under the Fifth Amend-
ment, governments' use of their
power of eminent domain histori-
cally had been allowed only for a
"public use" i.e. utility rights of
way, roads, parks, schools, etc. It
had not been allowed for vague
"public purposes," a term em-
* played as a kind of fig leaf to con-
ceal private gain for politically
connected special interests.
Unfortunately, The U.S. Supreme
Court ruled against Ms. Kelo and
her neighbors. The Court's 5-4 de-
cision held that the city could seize
these residents' homes and convey
the property to private developers.
This controversial ruling not
only displaced Ms. Kelo and her
neighbors from homes where many
had lived all their life, but it also
jeopardized the property rights of
every American. How? By holding
that there is no Constitutional im-


pediment to prevent governments
from taking private property and
conveying it to other private par-
ties simply because the govern-
ments wished to boost their tax
base. In the eyes of the Court's
misguided majority, boosting the
tax base served a "public purpose."
SWhat was once a slow erosion of
private property rights had now be-
come a potential avalanche as
many municipalities across the
country hastened to plow full
speed ahead in the name of en-
hancing their tax base through eco-
nomic development that entailed
the use of eminent domain to seize
private property. Judges, including
several in Florida, cited the Kelo
decision in opinions asserting
cities' right to condemn private
property for this kind of dubious
purpose.
Property owners were stunned as
this trend accelerated. In Riviera
Beach, where the city government
was set to displace 6,000 residents
for the purpose of letting a private
developer build a yacht club, .
pricey shops, and upscale condo-
miniums, the homeowners' efforts
to save their modest homes from
the wrecking ball gained national
media attention. .
The Florida Legislature also took
notice, and in the spring of this
year passed House Bill 1567 that
was signed into law by Gov. Jeb
Bush. The new law, codified in
Florida Statute 73.014, restricts a
municipality from taking private
property from Citizen A to give it
to Citizen B for the purpose of
merely enhancing the tax base.
Moreover, policymakers also
raised the threshold of what consti-


tuted "blight" -previously a fre-
quent rationale for eminent domain
takings. Ultimately, however, a
constitutional amendment would
provide the greatest degree of
long-term protection against the
abuse of eminent domain.
J.B. Ruhl, Matthews & Hawkins
Professor of Property at the Florida
State University College of Law,
eloquently summed up the situa-
tion in the Fall 2006 Journal of the
James Madison Institute. "The
combined effect of House Bill
1567 and adoption of Amendment
8 would be to slam the door on any
attempt at Kelo-style use of emi-
nent domain in Florida ... For any-
one concerned that Kelo-style uses
of eminent domain are inappropri-
ate, House Bill 1567 provides
comfort, but Amendment 8 pro-
vides even more."

and CEO of The James Madison
Institute, a non-partisan policy
center based in Tallahassee and
devoted to advocating the free-
market principles of limited gov-
ernment, individual liberty, and
personal responsibility.

tional organization engaged in the

Suwannee County School


Board employees


contribute to United Way


It's often said teachers and support staff
make a big difference in the lives of children.
This is certainly true in the Suwannee County
School System. In addition to what they do in
the classrooms, teachers and support staff are
making a significant difference by contribut-
ing to United Way.
For nearly a decade, school board employ-
ees have generously contributed to the United
Way through payroll deduction. According to
the district's records, over the last nine years,
employees have contributed over $41,000 to
United Way.
These funds are returned by United Way
directly to the community to support organi-
zations like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts,
Vivid Visions, Guardian Ad Litem, Police
Athletic League (PAL), Comprehensive Com-
munity Services (CCS) and Food Bank of
Suwannee Valley, a program of Catholic
Charities.
Suwannee County School District Superin-
tendent Walter Boatright Jr. and United Way
Executive Director Rita Dopp recently visited
Suwannee Primary School (SPS) and Suwan-
nee High School (SHS) to express their ap-
preciation to United Way contributors. Dopp
shared about the many ways the school
board's employees' contributions benefit the
community. She and Boatright appealed to
new teachers, urging them to consider pledg-


ing: their support to United Way through pay-
roll deduction. Dopp reported the United Way
raised $640,000 last year. Additionally, she
explained the agencies receiving these funds
used the funds as matching dollars for grants,
which resulted in more than $4.4 million in
services for Suwannee County residents.
Vivid Visions, Inc. Executive Director Jen-
nie Lyons expressed her appreciation to the
teachers and staff at SPS and SHS. She
shared about the work Vivid Visions has been
able to do as a result of the funding provided
through United Way due to the generosity of
'those who contribute. She stated the funds re-
ceived by Vivid Visions were used to apply
for matching grants. As a result, Vivid Vi-
sions received approximately $300,000 to
serve battered women and children in the
Suwannee County area.
Over the next couple of months Boatright,
Dopp and representatives from local organi-
zations funded by United Way will visit each
of the district's schools to express their ap-
preciation to employees for their continued
support of United Way and to promote pay-
roll deduction to new teachers and support
staff.

College (NFCC) Educator
Preparation Institute Director
Dr. Phillip Mantzanas was
recently a featured presenter
at the Florida Association of
Colleges of Teacher Educa-
tion Conference held at Cen-
tral Florida Community Col-
lege in Ocala. The work-
shop, .entitled, "Alternative

gram Evaluation Toolkit,"
examines the potential suc-
cess of EPI candidates.
The session highlighted
evaluation methods EPI. co-
ordinators, candidates and
local school officials may
use to measure the perfor-
mance and eventual impact
of the EPI program. The
evaluation model uses both
quantitative and qualitative
measures to help determine
whether EPI candidates are
prepared to have. an impact
on student learning in the K-
12 setting.
Much of the evaluation
framework is being designed
as a joint effort between the

Angela Beveridge, McAlpin;
one son, Levi Beveridge,
McAlpin; one sister, Mary
Elizabeth Moore, West Vir-
ginia; his Uncle Bernard and
Aunt Elizabeth Weaver, Live

LICENSED AGENT SPEAKS TO FUTURE AGENTS: Pictured, I to r, North Florida
Community College student Hope Cooper, guest agent Terri Floyd and student
Matthew Browning. Floyd was a guest speaker at an on-going realestate course
class at NFCC. Photo: Submitted


"I've recommended that students
take advantage of Ms. Floyd's offer,"
said Stalvey, a licensed real estate bro-
ker, "I can remember how nervous I
was during my first listing. It was all
new to me, and I would have felt more
at ease had I been able shadow an
agent prior." Stalvey also said, "It was
also interesting to hear Terri explain
that new agents should actually inter-
view a broker before accepting a job
with them."
The 63-hour course covers theoreti-
cal, practical and legal aspects of real
estate. It prepares students for Florida's
licensing exam required of real estate
agents.

Treatments for Heartburn
Heartburn is a common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux, also
called acid reflux. This may occur when acid contents from the
stomach move back or reflux into the esophagus. Other symptoms of
gastroesophageal reflux include a chronic cough, persistently sore
throat, and hoarseness. Heartburn is a sensation of burning pain
behind the lower breastbone. Regurgitation, or the feeling of stomach
contents coming back up into the throat, may also occur. Regurgitation
may also be accompanied by a bitter taste in the mouth, and is also
more common when bending over or lying down.
Antacids are one type of over-the-counter medication used to treat
heartburn. These provide quick, short-term relief by neutralizing acid
in the stomach. Another type of medication, called the H2 blocker,
works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
These may take longer to take effect, however the relief from
heartburn may last longer than with an antacid alone. Pepcid Complete
contains the H2 blocker famotidine and the antacids calcium
carbonate and magnesium hydroxide. Proton pump inhibitors such as
Prilosec OTC stop the production of stomach acid. H2 blockers and
proton pump inhibitors are also available in prescription strength if
needed. 0 309692.F

EIGHT YEAR OLD -"
DALE CARTER tries
one of the more modern
pieces of machinery ex-
hibited at the agricultural
display held at the coli-
seum, Thursday, April
20. The Suwannee High
Chapter of FFA spon-
sored the centennial ex-
hibit in celebration of
their community's 100th r;

exhibit with his father,
Leon Carter of Live Oak.

Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, along with rancher Ro-
bert Putnam, was on hand throughout the day de-
monstrating the almost forgotten technique.


COUNTY AGENT ED JOWERS stands beside one of
the oldest pieces of farm machinery displayed at the
exhibit. Manufactured in 1926, the all metal tractor
was quite a contrast with the modern machinery also

The Bulldogs got their third win in 'l
four weeks Friday at Langford, dump-
ing Hamilton 29-15 and securing a
winning record at home despite a sea-
son. of disappointments. The Dogs fin-
ish 4-6 overall, 4-2 at Langford Stadi-
um. The 2B Trojans, once an area
powerhouse, fall to 3-7.
"It was a real physical game," said Johnny Herring
Head Coach Bobby Bennett. "Hamil-
ton played real hard."
So did the Dogs, especially on defense. Suwannee gave up
125 yards to Hamilton's standout running back, Lathaniel Sow-
ell, but held the rest of the Trojans to a total of 124 yards. Two
Johnny Herring interceptions helped keep the Trojans out of
the end zone. The leading tacklers for the Dogs were Justin
Starling with 13 stops and Lee Laxton and Stephen Cherry
with 10 each.
On offense, quarterback Taj Roundtree rushed for 98 yards
and a score on 10 carries and completed six of 10 passes for 49
yards and another touchdown. Brandon Alien gained 68 yards-,.
on 13 carries and Jarrett Yulee, stymied most of the night,
broke loose late in the game, scoring twice on three fourth-quar-
ter carries for 76 yards. Yulee's total for the night was 89 yards
on 13 carries.
Kenny Clayton had four catches for 41 yards and Gabe Gal-
loway two for eight yards and a score.

'Big cars' come

Submitted
The 'big cars' -- open-wheel racers which resemble
oversize sprint cars -- came to South Georgia Motor-
sports Park Oct. 25. Many NASCAR stars got their
start in big cars and still compete in them from time to
time. Ryan Newman won the 100-lap feature at South
Georgia. NASCAR regulars Ken Schrader and Dave
Blaney also competed. Live Oak's Dennis Nixon, of
the Southern Speed Racing Report, was there and
snapped a few pictures for the Democrat.

Once again, con-
ditioning played a
role in the Bulldogs'
win. The Trojans
held their own with
Suwannee until late
in the fourth quarter
when Jarrett Yulee's
punishing attacks
on the center of the
Hamilton line began
to take their toll.

Mason-Dixon meltdown to have halfway breaks


PASS South super late models and tour-type

modifieds to have 10-minute break


Submitted
In an effort to look out for all race teams
with all types of budgets, Mason-Dixon
Meltdown co-promoters Tom Mayberry and
Bob Dillner announced Nov. 3 that both the
PASS South Super Late Model 250-lap event
and the Tour-Type Modified 250-lap event at
the Mason-Dixon Meltdown will include a
10-minute halfway break.
The lap 125 break will allow teams to
make adjustments on their cars, which will
include changing tires, without having to
bring a full pit crew to the event. Both May-
berry and Dillner believe this will help bring
in some of the "smaller" teams that might not
have had a full over-the-wall crew available
for the Meltdown, which runs Thanksgiving
weekend, Nov. 24-25 at South Boston Speed-
way.
"We are really trying to look out for
everyone by instituting this aspect of the
event," said Mayberry. "We know that there
are a lot of teams out there that can't get a
full crew the later in the year it gets and this
will help those teams. Teams will still be
able to make green-flag and yellow-flag
stops where they might need a full over-the-
wall team, but this will help those who don't
have that ability.
"Now, someone can come in at lap 125
and make all of the adjustments they want to
the cars, including changing tires and not
have the pressure of having to beat out teams
that have a more experienced pit crew. We
think this is a great idea and will help bring
in a few more teams to compete that might
have been on the fence before, thus giving


the fans even more to look forward to."
Tire rules for the event have recently been
announced and more will be added to the ma-
sondixonmeltdown.com website soon.
Teams will be permitted a total of 12 tires for
the event (the four on the car that they quali-
fy and run their heat race with, along with an
additional eight tires they can have in their
pits). There is no tire rule for practice. For
more information on tires for the Super Late
Model event, call Northern Tire at (603) 539-
1566. For Modified tires, contact Hoosier
South at (336) 731-6100.
It was recently announced that the Leg-
ends Semi-Pro and Pro/Masters events will
also have a halfway break in their 50-lap
features on Friday night. At lap 30 (just
past halfway), the cars will come to a stop
on the frontstretch. All of the adjustments
that will be made have to be done on the
frontstretch with the equipment the crews
can take over the wall, right in front of the
stands. The drivers will also be allowed to
get out of their cars and are encouraged to
walk to the fence and sign autographs and
talk with the fans.
The tour-type modified portion of the sMa-
son-Dixon Meltdown features a 250-lap main
event on Saturday, Nov. 25. The PASS South
Super Late Models also have a 250-lap event
that day and both premier divisions will be
racing for a $12,500 paycheck for the winner,
plus lap money and other bonuses to be an-
nounced soon. Also competing during the
Mason-Dixon Meltdown weekend are the
Legends Cars (Friday only) and the Pro
Challenge Series (Saturday only).


Due to an error in mate-
rial submitted to the De-
mocrat, Shannon Croft
was incorrectly identified
in a photo on page 9A of
the Oct. 18, 2006 edition.
Shannon Croft is the
mother of Kara Croft,
pictured in that issue at
the Open Youth Goat


Show Sept. 30 at the
Suwannee Covered Arena.
Also due to an error in
material submitted to the
Democrat, the name of
Theanna Bailes was
omitted from a list of
2006 rec center Pee-Wee
league tackle football
cheerleading coaches on


page:6B of the Nov. 1,
2006 edition. Bailes is a
cheerleading coach for the
Gators.
Finally, in the same arti-
cle, the Democrat mis-
spelled the name of Kait-
lyn Day.
The Democrat regrets
the errors.

Bulldogs
Continued From Page 1B

The Sports Connection/
WQHL players of the game, as
selected by WQHL radio, were
Gramby Croft, Jarrett Yulee,
Johnny Herring and Stephen
Cherry.
It was all defense for the first
three quarters, followed by an
offensive explosion in the
fourth. The teams combined
for 30 points in the final 11
minutes of the game.
The Bulldogs got. their first
break early in the first, when a
high snap on a Hamilton punt
gave the Dogs the ball at the
Trojan 30, Su\\ annee drove to
the 21, where 38-yard Cullen
Boggus field goal try was
blocked. '
On the next play, though,
Stephen Cherry disrupted an
Anthony Stevens pitchout and
Gramby Croft recovered for
Suwannee at the Hamilton six.
On third and goal, Roundtree
rolled left and went in un-
touched. The Boggus kick
made it 7-0 at 5:01 of the first.


Hamilton answered almost
instantly. Starting from the
Suwannee 49, the Trojans tied
the game seven plays later on a
23-yard Stevens pass to Josh
Jones at the 1:29 mark.
Suwannee came back
strong, moving the ball 50
yards to the Hamilton 30 in
eight plays before -Roundtree
was picked off by Chad
Billington at the Hamilton 15.
The Trojans got tricky on the
ensuing drive. A fake punt
from their own 46 gave Hamil-
ton a first down at the Suwan-
nee 27. The Suwannee defense
held, though, and a 39-yard
Rafael Balleza field goal at-
tempt fell short.
After a Suwannee drive
stalled at the Hamilton 31, the
Trojans drove to the Bulldog
nine, where Herring intercept-
ed a Stevens pass in the end
zone.
Suwannee took over at the
20 and took the lead 11 plays
later on a three-yard
Roundtree toss to Galloway.
The key plays on the drive


were a 26-yard run by Allen
and two Clayton receptions.
Clayton couldn't handle the
snap on the extra point try, but
ran it in for a 15-7 Suwannee
lead With 11:09 left in the
game.
Again, Hamilton answered
immediately. The Trojans cov-
ered 80 yards in seven plays,
scoring on a remarkable 37-
yard run by Sowell. Headed for
the right sideline, Sowell sud-
denly cut upfield and sprinted
past three Suwannee defend-
ers.
Hamilton tied it on the two-
point conversion, a Stevens
pass to Kirk Mitchell in the end
zone.
Suwannee dominated the fi-
nal seven minutes.
The Bulldogs drove to their
own 44 on their next posses-
sion. Facing third and 17,
Clayton made a nice 20-yard
catch to give the Dogs new life
at the.Hamilton 36. On the next
play, Yulee, held to 13 yards on
10 carries to that point,
smashed through the Hamilton

Dogs led 22-15 with 5:22 re-

The Bulldogs .got the ball at

six-yard Trojan punt with 3:36

first down but was stopped for
one yard. Then he came back
and hit it harder. The 39-yard
run iced it at 29-15.
On fourth and 12 from the
Hamilton 33, Herring made a
great leaping interception with
two minutes left to kill Hamil-
ton's remaining hopes.
Bennett was glad to have the
win, but wasn't elated _t. his:
team's performance. "We made
a few plays in the second half,"
he said, "but there were a few
plays we didn't make."
It was a disappointing season
by any measure, but the Dogs
ended it on a high note, going
3-1 in the closing weeks. We'll
see if they can pick up from
there in 2007.

Waterfowl habitat enhancement complete at Hickory Mound


Submitted
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FFWCC) can now
better manage water and
salinity levels in the Hickory
Mound Impoundment on Big
Bend Wildlife Management
Area. The impoundment will
provide 1,834 acres of essen-
tial habitat for migrating and
wintering waterfowl, shore-
birds, wading birds and a va-
riety of other wildlife.
"This impoundment was
originally constructed in 1968
and over time storm surges
degraded the levee and water
control structures which lim-
ited our ability to maintain
quality wildlife habitat," said
FFWCC District Biologist
David Nicholson. "Erosion of
the levee and the continuous
need for repairs were con-,
stant problems."
Ducks Unlimited (DU) en-
gineers implemented a design
recommended by independent


consulting agencies and over-
saw the construction manage-
ment to improve the infra-
structure on the Hickory
Mound Impoundment.
Restoration included con-
struction of two 1,000,-foot
spillways, replacement of
four water control structures,
installation of one new struc-
ture, installation of more than
3,500 linear feet of rip-rap for
bank stabilization at those
sites historically damaged by
storms and refurbishment of
the existing levee between
the impoundment and adja-
cent marshes associated with
the Gulf of Mexico.
The FFWCC will manage
the impoundment and con-
duct periodic drawdowns that
will maintain diversity of
emergent vegetation and pro-
mote growth of submersed
aquatic vegetation. The new
spillways were constructed to
allow the equalization of wa-
ter levels between the Gulf of


Mexico and the impoundment
during storm surges. The
spillways also serve as an
outlet for excess water as a
storm surge subsides or after
a heavy rain, which also aids
in water level control.
"The ability to control wa-
ter and salinity levels in an
impoundment like Hickory
Mound is necessary to main-
tain the value of the habitat
for waterfowl, fish and other
wildlife," said DU Director of
Conservation Programs for
Florida Craig LeSchack. "The
restored marsh and improved
plant community will provide
winter habitat for green-
winged and blue-winged teal,
wigeon, northern pintails,
greater and lesser scaup, ring-
necked ducks and redheads."
In addition to contributions
from DU and the FFWCC, the
Taylor County Board of
County Commissioners, An-
derson Columbia and grants
received from the National,


Fish and Wildlife Foundation'
and the North American Wet-
land Conservation Act (NAW-
CA) provided funding for this
project. Overall NAWCA has
helped create hundreds of
partnerships throughput North
America to deliver on-the-
ground conservation projects
with multiple benefits for both
wildlife and people.

the public and the FFWCC

FDACS launches new forestry initiative


Submitted
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (FDACS) re-
cently announced the launch of
a new public awareness initia-
tive: Your Forest.
Managed. This initiative teams
landowners across the state
with their county forester to en-
sure the future health of Flori-
da's forests. This is the most
comprehensive outreach in the
Department's Division of
Forestry's 79 year history and
will significantly influence the
shaping of Florida's privately
owned forests for decades to
come.
With Florida's population ex-
pected to exceed 18 million by
2020, preparing privately
owned forest lands to accom-
modate an upcoming record
growth rate is at the core of the
initiative. Currently the state
loses 1,200 acres of forest land
per week with development ex-
pected to grow by 40 percent
during this time. Inaddition;'"',
large acreages of land formerly
owned by one individual are
being broken up into smaller
parcels and sold to multiple
owners. This changing of
hands is introducing new forest
land owners who may not have
the information necessary to
properly manage their property.
The increase in number and va-
riety of landowners has re-
- quired foresters to develop in-
novative ways to communicate
with a changing and diverse
group of people-the overall
effort: to promote healthy land
management.
Your Forest. Managed. is de-
signed to help Florida's county
foresters connect with the
landowners in the districts they
serve. The centerpiece of the
campaign has been named,
which stands for Outreach Ac-
tion Kit (OAK). OAK consists
of a comprehensive landown-
ers' manual, brochures, promo-
tional items, displays and an
interactive website, all of
which are available in both
English and Spanish. These
tools are expected to help for-
est landowners make sound de-
cisions when it comes to their
property.
"At the heart of this initiative
is a desire to assist Florida's
forest land owners by provid-
ing sound counsel on how they
can best manage their land to
meet their individual needs,"
FDACS Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson said. "New
landowners need to know that
the beautiful land they just
bought won't stay that way on
its own we can help."
Forests cover almost half of

Florida's total land area more
than 16 million acres and are
an important economic engine
in this state. Private landowners
own more than half of that total
land and produce over half of
Florida's raw timber supply. As
the state's top agribusiness, the
forest industry has a total eco-
nomic impact of $16.5 billion.
Impacts on tourism and recre-
ation generate about six billion
dollars and exports outside the
sate represent 50 percent of to-
tal industry sales.
The Division of Forestry has
45 county foresters in 15 dis-


tricts whose job it is to help
private non-industrial landown-
ers with 10 acres or more de-
velop land management plans
and execute proper manage-
ment practices. To locate a
forester in your county please
visit
www.yourforestmanaged.com.
Florida's forests provide the
environment with clean air and
help reduce air pollution and
provide habitat for wildlife and
a diverse plant population. In
addition, forestlands are critical
to purifying our state's water
supply, providing a water filter-


ing system that affects the
drinking water of 90 percent of
Florida's population. Proper'
forest land management is criti-
cal to maintaining this lifeline
to'the state.
The Department's Division
of Forestry is committed to
protecting Florida and its peo-
ple from the dangers of wild-
land fire and manage the forest
resources through a steward-
ship ethic to assure they are
available for future generations.

take the point on the green but
George Spears took little time
to pass Bass and take over the
point with Bass second, John-
ny Brown, Jeff Colburn and
Ed Barber in the top five. As
these guys raced hard and
heavy, the first caution came
out on lap 7 for Mike Hendrix
who had spun in turns three
and four against the wall.
Hendrix was fine but was
done for the night.
In the meantime, Bass had
problems with his car and was
forced behind the pit wall,
done for the night. On the
restart Spears found a hard-
charging Johnny Brown right
on his door as Brown powered
around Spears and took over
the point followed by Spears,
Barber, Colburn, and James
Frisbie.
On lap 18, while leading the
race, Brown slowed and was
also forced to retire for the
night in the pits. It was begin-
ning to look like being on the
point is bad luck for some.
With Brown behind the pit
wall, once again Spears took
the lead followed by Barber,
Colburn, Frisbie and Jason
Foster. Foster found his hands
full with hard-charging Bobby
Holley behind him. Foster
tried to protect his position but
Holley was too strong and
took over fifth with Foster
sliding into sixth.
Mike Amato brought out the
caution as he spun at the bot-
tom of turn four. Cars were re-
aligned for the restart as
Spears led the way over Bar-
ber, Colbum, Holley and Fris-
bie. But before the cars were
going good, Amato spun in


. turn two, bringing out the yel-
low once again. There was
just enough time on the restart
for Barber to pass Spears and
take over the lead.
The race went back again to
another caution for Mike Wof-
ford, who spun in turn four
with Amato spinning but man-
.aging to avoid Wofford. With
Barber now at the head of the
pack, it was Barber, Spears,
Colburn, Holley and Frisbie in
the top five followed by Fos-
ter, Vince Keeler, Robert
Ward, and Bobby Simcox.
But the yellow was shown
again for debris on the track.
With three more cautions be-
fore the .checkered flag was
thrown, Ed Barber hung on to
take the checkered flag for his
first 50-lap feature win. Fol-
lowing Barber to the check-
ered was Jeff Colbum, James
Frisbie, George Spears, and
Jason Foster.
The rain-out Modified race
saw Gary Fountain Jr. on the
pole but it was point leader
Alan Bruns who took the lead
and never looked back. With
only one caution in the 15 lap
event, Bruns led the way over
Matt Wheeler, Jimmy Winks,
Art Kunzeman and Bobby
Blake.
Joe Gerard had the pole for
the Mini Stock feature but it
was Jared Allison leading the
most laps. Allison was passed
for the point by Jonathan
Camp who took the checkered
only to be disqualified in tech,
giving Allison the win over
Dick Laszlo, Jamie Dixson,
Joe Gerard and Steven Simp-
son.
Mike Pletka had the pole for
the Sportsman feature but it
was Donny Williams who was


on a mission for the win.
Williams slowly worked his
way up, taking over the top
spot in spite of a very hard-
changing Travis Towell on his
tail. Williams was followed by
Travis Towell, Timmy Todd
Jr., Mike Pletka and John Nus-
baum. In Victory Circle,
Williams dedicated his win to
his lost friend Sheriff Chris
Daniel.
Late Model action saw
David Gibbs on the pole but it
was Alan Bruns who slowly
took the lead away from
Gibbs for the checkered. With
only one caution for Johnny
Brown, driving his brand new
Late Model, it was the "Catch
Alan" show. Crossing the
checkered behind Bruns were
Darren Brown, Rich Clouser,
David Gibbs and John Ridley.
It was young Chad Akins
who took the Pro Truck win
after a few cautions arid
restarts. Akins was on the ball
as he crossed the checkered
followed by Dennis Gardner,
Bill Stacy, A.J. Factor and Tim
Bagnall.
It was Matt Wheeler who
took the feature win for the
modified feature for Oct. 28.
Wheeler took no time taking
over the point from Art Kun-
zeman. A, number of modi-
fieds were in the field for Sat-
urday night's Ed Meridith
.Memorial 100 lap event at
New Smyrna. Orlando racer
Shain Held did a great job
working his way through the
field to take second behind
Wheeler. Completing the top
five were Jim "Hoot" Flynn,
Bobby Blake and Jimmy
Winks. If you love modified
racing, you will love Saturday
night.


After quite a while in tech,
Paul Kitner was found legal in
the Strictly Stock class and
declared the winner. Kitner
was protested after the race
and was torn completely
down. Other results for the
class were still unofficial as of
press time.

with a seven-yard touchdown
run in the opening quarter by
J.R. Bass. The Cowboys
went up by two scores on a
70-yard break-away by Kiree

ever, missed the extra point

touchdown and that proved to
be the difference in the game.

Legendary Live Oak native begins work on memoirs


By Robin Chapman
Charles Winston Clayton
Jr., one of the most successful
native sons of Suwannee
County, has begun work on
his memoirs and is using the
archives of the Suwannee De-
mocrat to aid in his research.
Clayton, 85, now lives in
Winter-Park; yet through the
years his adventures have
continued to make news in his
hometown paper.
Born in Live Oak on May
24, 1921, Charles was the sec-
ond child of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles W. Clayton, Sr. His
mother was Vonnie Mickler
Clayton and was a descendant '
of Suwannee County pioneers
Mary Frances loil\" Creek-
more and Jacob G(.'odbrcad
Mickler. In the 20s, his father,
bom and raised in Falmouth
in western Suwannee County,
moved the family to Madison
and then Mayo for his work
as a bookkeeper before finally
settling permanently in Live
Oak in the 30s..
The young man began

was 8 years old, and those
jobs, plus a federal program,
helped him attend the Univer-
sity of Florida, from which he
graduated with high honors in
1943 after graduating from
Suwannee High School. With
World War II raging, he and
his cousin Malcolm Cla.orn.


CLAYTON FAMILY CIRCA 1926: Pictured are Charles Clayion at
about age 5, taken in Live Oak. His mother Vonnie is standing
behind him, his oldest sister Evelyn (now deceased) is standing
next to her, His sister Rowena is sitting (looking cross) and
Charles, of course, is the only boy. Taken about 1926. S- inm,


also of Live Oak, joined the
Army Air Corps.
Overseas, 2nd Lt. Charles
W. Clayton flew 89 missions
in his Piper Cub L-4
Grasshopper, piloting the tiny
plane on dangerous flights
over enemy territory for the
84th Division 325th Artillery
Battalion. His bravery earned;
him a battlefield promotion to
1st Lieutenant, as well as the
Air Medal and the Oak Leaf
Cluster.
But even in tihe midst of
danger, there was humor. On
Friday, April 6, 1945, the
Suwannee Democrat reported:
"Lt. Charles Winston Clayton
and another lieutenant, James
Ford of Chicago, were flying
peacefully along the Rhine in
their Cubs when they fell in
formation with a group of
fighter planes. The radio op-
erator being a sergeant asked
'What kind of planes are
those?' They found qut that
they were [German] Messer-
schmitt 109s. The sergeant ex-
amined the markings of the
planes and they "got the hell
'out of there.'"
On Friday, May 25, 1945
the Suwannee Democrat re-
ported: "Lt. Charles W. Clay-
ton, Jr., piloted the artillery
observation plane which
helped clear the road of Ger-
man civilians for an armored
spearhead through Bielefeld,
Germany. [His] plane flew


100 feet above the ground
while a Railsplitter sergeant,
Thomas J. Johnson, Dayton,
Ohio, leaned out the plane to
wave congregating civilians to
a central control point in the
city."
Before he mustered out as a
captain, Clayton was assigned
to occupation duty in Berlin.
When he had free time, he
took curious GIs up in his
plane to view the devastation
of the German capitol from
the air. It was then that he got
his first glimpse of Germany's
super highway, the Autobahn.
There was nothing like it any-
where, and the image of that
highway, with its adjacent de-
velopment, stuck in his mind.
Back in the states, Clayton
and his cousin Malcolm
moved to Central Florida and
founded Claytons' Realty.
Eventually, they began build-
ing entire subdivisions.
But it was the advent of In-

al Clayton's vision. He had been
ed buying rural land between
Lake Mary and Orlando for
future development, and when
none of the cities in Central
Florida wanted the new free-
way to slice, through their
downtown, Clayton sold his
land to the government for the
new interstate. Remembering
the Autobahn, he held on to
the acreage adjacent to the
freeway and watched its value
skyrocket.
Married for 49 years to his
wife, Joan, Clayton is the fa-
J their of five successful chil-
dren. His sisters live in North
Florida;'Mrs. J. G. (Lauranell)
Tidwell of Live Oak, and Mrs.
Orton (Ro\\ ena) Bryan of
ve Oak, Jasper.
hy he's In 1989, Clayton suffered a
at 112 massive heart attack that al-
;e been most killed him. But he sur-
vived, and now, as he looks
forward to his 86th birthday,
he can still be found daily at
his Winter Park office. "When
the train of opportunity
stopped at my station, I just
got on," he says. "And when I
reached a goal, I set a higher
one. I-wouldn't change a
thing. It has been quite a ride
for an old Live Oak boy!"

Dieting tips for those making lifestyle changes


Dieters often make three mistakes: they deprive themselves of the foods
they love, chip away their meals until there are too few calories and, not to
mention, they're on a "diet" in the first place.
Take such moves in overhauling your eating patterns and you're bound to
fail because your brain will sabotage your diet, says Mary Boggiano, a
University of Alabama at Birmingham psychologist who studies abnormal
eating patterns.
"A lot of Americans want a quick fix so they are lured by crash diets,"
Boggiano says. These diets are often too low in calories, cut out favorite foods
and are monotonous in favoring only certain type of foods, such as all-carb or
protein diets.
However, the brain responds to extreme, low-calorie diets by triggering the
metabolic appetite the body's need for more energy and calories that can
leave you hungry and vulnerable to overeating. Boggiano says. In turn, when
dieters deprive themselves of the foods they enjoy or rely on bland foods, their
hedonic appetite the brain's craving for yummy tasting foods kicks in.
Hedonic appetites can especially be triggered when a person is stressed and
seeks out a reward food, such as potato chips or. chocolate.
Eventually, dieters succumb to fighting the two appetites and end up unable
to stay on their diet, which results in old eating habits.
So if going on a "diet" is wrong, what can you do? Instead, consider it a
lifestyle change, not a short-term diet, nutritionists say. And along with some
physical activity to boost your metabolism, satisfy a healthy mixture of
metabolic and hedonic appetites to meet a 1,200- or 1,500-calorie diet.
Experts also offer the following tips:
Eat balanced meals: Boggiano recommends three meals a day, and no
skipping breakfast. Research has shown eating breakfast and low-fat meals are
two common characteristics of people who keep weight off long-term. Meet
national dietary guidelines of fruits
Ophthalmology and vegetables, dairy, carbohydrates
__- a^^.and protein.

For an individual meal plan of what


foods you need for your age, activity level and gender, refer to the United
States Department ofAgriculture MyPyramid Plan at www.mypyramid.gov.
Go low fat and count calories: Maintain a low-fat diet, which can help you
feel more full, and limit how much saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol you
eat. To reduce trans fat, cut back on foods containing partially hydrogenated
vegetable oils, such as commercially baked and fried foods. The 2006
American Heart Association Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations call for a
goal of less than 7 percent of saturated fat and trans fatty acids of less than 1
percent of total calories.
Boggiano says that adults who eat no less than 1,200 calories a day should
be able to maintain steady weight loss of up to two pounds a week. If you have
trouble keeping track, some nutritionists recommend maintaining a food
journal to record what you eat and the calories and fat content.
S-Watch portion size: Dinner plates have gotten larger and meals have gone
super-size. For example, a suitable portion size at a fast-food restaurant is
actually a children's meal. For quick portion-size judgments, remember that
three ounces of meat or protein is about the size of the palm of your hand, one
ounce of cheese is about the equivalent of your thumb size; and one cup of
milk, yogurt and fresh vegetables is about the size of a tennis ball, according
to the American Diabetes Association.
Drink healthy: What you drink such as soft drinks, alcohol and whole
milk can also be adding calories to your diet. On the flip side, drinking water
may actually help you lose weight and feel more energetic throughout the day.
That's because research has shown that being dehydrated makes you feel
hungry and may cause you to overeat.
Can't stand water? Try flavored water, without any added sugar, or
unsweetened fruit juice, vegetable juices and fat-free milk instead of whole
milk, which can save you about 80 calories or eight grams of fat.
Making such lifestyle changes can be easier said than done. That's why
Boggiano recommends taking it "one meal at a time."
Eat a healthy breakfast and then focus on a healthy lunch and dinner. "Then
you've had a really healthy day," Boggiano says. "Next thing you know
you're eating healthy weekly, monthly and yearly."

Having a wide support network can be an advantage in any job.
A Florida REALTOR, however, is especially fortunate to be part of
the state's largest professional trade association.

This relationship gives your REALTOR access to a vast assortment
of services from financing to inspections that can help your trans-
action move more quickly and more smoothly.

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

New program makes


"playing" pay
Jump rope, hopscotch, kickball and tag'are
activities most parents remember fondly as a
fun and active part of their school days.
However, recess is becoming less of a priority
in today's schools. According to a recent
survey, many schools have eliminated this
fundamental form of fitness with only 4
percent of states requiring that schools
incorporate recess into students' school days.
To encourage schools to make physical
activity a priority, Campbell's Labels for
Education (LFE) has teamed up with National
Parent Teachers Association (PTA) to
announce a new program called Campbell's
Recess Rewards.
"For more than 30 years, Labels for
Education has provided schools and
communities with a simple way to obtain the
tools and resources they need to advance
childhood development," said Anne Pizarro,
program director for Campbell's Labels for
Education. "Because physical play is such a
critical part of that development process, we
are proud to partner with PTA to launch our
new Recess Rewards program as part of
Campbell's longstanding commitment to
nourish kids' minds and bodies."
Labels for Education has given schools and
communities the opportunity to collect proofs
from eligible Campbell brands to earn points
toward redeeming free merchandise including
physical fitness equipment. In fact, more
points are redeemed for fitness equipment than
any other category. More than $105 million in
educational tools and resources have been
redeemed by schools nationwide and now the
program offers schools a new recess-related
incentive.
Campbell's Recess Rewards is part of LFE's
Labels for America program, a community-


off for schools
focused extension that offers bonus points for
volunteer projects, fitness activities or
education programs that promote learning,
caring, sharing or student nutrition and
wellness. Each school that participates also
has the chance to win one of 1,500 bonus point
prizes including a grand prize of one million
bonus points.
In addition, LFE now promises even more
opportunities for schools to earn points faster,
with over 150 products now worth five bonus
points each., Campbell has also simplified the
redemption process allowing participants to
simply submit UPC codes or lids, making it
easier than ever to redeem for free
merchandise. Visit
www.labelsforeducation.com for more
information.

Get into the Game!
It's eas) to participate in Campbell's
Recess Rewards from Sept. I8 through
March 31. 2007-
