 Notes
Review: The Suwannee Democrat LCCN: sn95026787 is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began publishing in 1884 in the city of Live Oak (FL). Noting the shifting demographics of Florida in the 20th century, in 1906, one observes that Live Oak was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in early 20th century Florida. For approximately two years, from 1906 through 1907, the weekly Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak (FL) Daily Democrat LCCN: sn95026788. The Suwannee Democrat has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association, both as in the weekly category and for the quality of its agricultural reporting. In its early days, the Suwannee Democrat reported a Democrat Party affiliation. The newspaper's first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack. Very little else, however, is known of F.R. McCormack. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left by railroad on the night that its offices burned to the ground. Arson again in October 1995, destroyed a historic block of Live Oak's downtown and the newspaper's office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were last-known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900. The issues had just been scheduled for preservation microfilming under the auspices of the U.S. Newspaper Program, when they were destroyed. The event was bitterly regretted and served to show the precariousness of local newspaper archives. Live Oak is the seat of Suwannee County (FL) government. Suwannee County is surrounded on three sides by the Suwannee River. And, its karst topography gives the area an abundance of natural springs and fresh water. Industries of the region, particularly during the early days of the Suwannee Democrat, were lumber, turpentine and cotton. Live Oak was known for its grist and lumber mills. The character of these industries and the regional economy survived through the 1920s, when economic down-turn resulted in change. Change was already being seen as early as 1910, when the poultry underwent industrialization in the county. Poultry took such a strong foothold in Suwannee County that even front yards were cultivated for the production of feed grains. Agriculture and other land-based industries, particularly forestry and related industries, were also seeing change with the establishment of nurseries supplying hybrid bulbs and plants to markets. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression brought change and growth to a halt. With recovery, the region became semi-rural. Florida's demographic shifts, both that following World War II and the completion of the Interstate Highway System initiated by Governor Bryant in the 1960s, have marked a trend of increasing urbanization in Suwannee County.--E.

cally. our stones were
somewhat t ure diverse.
Thel run the gamut from
overturned elections
(March 21) to mnaor
electoral upsets (Aug.
27): from the mystery of
an old newspaper clip-
ping I Feb. 22) to three
separate and unrelated
lottery wins by local resi-
dents (April 30) - surely
something of a statistical
nysterv. in our i'ewi. Inl
an\ case. here thei are -
the major local news sto-
ries of last year
(Note: Dates refer to
date of publication in the
print edition of the De-
mocrat.)

Amendment I fails
here, passes statewide
Feb. 1 - Amendment 1,
the property tax measure
on the Jan 29 presiden-
tial primary ballot, failed

the measure passed
statewide " ith 64.1 per-
cent of the voters saying

The mystery of the box
Feb. 22 - A small box

the Suwalnne Democrat.
The St. Petersburg Times

Type 1 Diabetes and Insulin
Type I diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, is a
chronic condition involving an inability of the pancreas to produce
adequate amounts of insulin. Insulin is necessary for the conversion
of glucose into energy. Type 1 diabetes typically first appears during
childhood or adolescence, although the condition may occur at any
age and may occur due to genetic factors or certain types of viruses.
In persons affected by type I diabetes, the immune system attacks
and destroys pancreatic cells where insulin is produced. Symptoms
of type 1 diabetes include increased thirst, frequent urination,
extreme hunger, and weight loss.
Persons affected by type 1 diabetes need to regularly and frequently
monitor blood sugar, as well as maintain a healthy weight and a
healthy diet. Insulin injections or use of an insulin pump are
treatment options for persons affected by this condition. Insulin is
available in many different forms. Lispro (Humalog) and insulin
apart (Novolog) are rapid-acting forms of insulin. Regular insulin
(Humulin R, Novolin R) is a short-acting form of insulin. Insulin
glargine (Lantus) is a long-acting form.of insulin. Pramlintide
(Symlin) is another medication that may be prescribed to stabilize
the sharp increase in blood sugar that occurs after meals. 492400F

Square. - Photo: Submitted

On Dec. 6, nine residents from Surrey Place
Care Center embarked on a mission to share
God's love with the community during the an-
nual Christmas on the Square celebration! In
preparation for this annual event, residents la-
beled over 250 bottled waters with scripture
verses of God's love and had two shifts: five
residents worked the booth from 9 a.m. to 11
a.m. and then the next four residents worked
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During the event, adults and children of all
ages visited the residents' booth to enjoy a
bottle of water, hot chocolate, and a bright
blue balloon. The booth was such a hit that
over 250 bottles of water were distributed, 350
balloons were handed out to children, and 10
gallons of Hot Chocolate were deliciously en-
joyed during the celebration! The interaction
between the young at age and the young at
heart was priceless. The children were drawn
to the blue balloons and they gave an abun-
adance of hugs to the residents in return. This
really brought smiles to the residents' faces.
Residents and employees believe that their
community was able to recognize how valu-
able their seniors truly are to God and others.
The residents have returned to Surrey Place
Care Center with a purpose of continuing this
ministry. Four of the residents are now partici-
pating in a ministry called "Heart to Heart."
These accommodations were provided by Sur-
rey Place Care Center's Chaplain Program,
which meets the spiritual heeds of its resi-
dents, employees and family members through
a non-denominational approach of respecting
all faiths. The program is founded on the emo-
tional and spiritual healing well of uncondi-
tional love. The Signature Chaplain offers
stress relief to the employee,
encouragement to the resident that reduces
anxiety and validates strong hope in their
physical, spiritual and emotional wellness, and
Sfor the family member, the Chaplain inspires
them with peace.
Signature HealthCARE, headquartered in
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is a family-
based organization that is revolutionizing the
long term care industry through a culture of
resident-certered healthcare services, person-
alized spirituality, quality of life initiatives,
and employee development and empowerment.
With 65 facilities operated and managed by its
Affiliates in 7 states, Signature HealthCARE is
redefining care by earning the trust of every
resident, family and community it serves.

Governor Crist praises Florida's

virtual education for leading the nation

Study ranks sunshine state as No. I for online learning


Governor Charlie Crist
and Education Commis-
sioner Dr. Eric J. Smith to-
day accepted a plaque
from the Center for Digital
Education and the Florida
Virtual School recognizing
Florida as the top provider
of virtual education in the
nation. The Center for
Digital Education recently
conducted a nationwide re-
view of state programs and
support for online learning.
Based on the study's find-
ings, Florida ranked first in
the nation for its policies,
programs and. strategies
implemented to promote
online learning.
"Online learning is a
bright star for our state's
future, and I applaud Flori-
da Virtual. School for years
of success in delivering
high quality educational
options to all students,"
said Governor Crist. "As
school leaders are asked to
do more with less, I am
encouraged. to know our
online learning policies are
moving schools in the
right direction to ensure
students gain the skills and
knowledge needed for life-
long success. And I ap-
plaud the legislative lead-


ers for their efforts in pro-
viding more options for
21st century learning for
more families in Florida."
Julie Young, president of
Florida Virtual School, and
Leilani Cauthen, Publisher
of Converge, joined Gov-
ernor Crist, Commissioner
Smith and members of the
Florida Legislature to cele-.
brate Florida's success.
"Florida continues to
lead the nation in provid-
ing students opportunities
to learn in new ways, and
I'm thrilled our state has
been recognized for its ef-
forts," said Commissioner
Smith. "Online learning is
another shining example of
a way to engage families
in the education process,
while preparing our next
generation of students."
In 2008, the Florida
Legislature created the
School District Virtual In-
struction Program, requir-
ing school districts to offer
full-time virtual instruction
programs for students in
kindergarten through
eighth grade. In August,
Florida Virtual School an-
nounced its new partner-
ship with Connections
Academy to extend online


learning options to ele-
mentary school students
"under the new District Vir-
tual School program.
Over the past 11 years,
Florida Virtual School has
delivered more than
530,000 courses to stu-
dents across the state and
has grown into an industry
leader. The fully accredited
school offers more than 90
middle and high school
courses that are taught by
the 530 Florida-certified
teachers who are also sub-
ject-certified.
"Our focus is giving all
students access to a high
quality education, com-
plete with the skills and
knowledge they need for
success for years to
come," said Florida Virtual

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

: What are ionomers?
A: Ionomers are materials used for filling
cavities. Among their attributes is the
fact that they mimic the color of a tooth,
although they. do not have the
translucence of enamel. Glass and resin
are two different types of ionomers.
Glass ionomers are made of a mixture
of acrylic acids and fine glass powders
that are used to fill cavities, particularly
those that are on the roots of teeth.
Glass ionomers can be created to
release a tiny amount of fluoride in the
mouths of those people who are at high
risk for decay. The dentist, when using a
glass ionomer for a filling, may not need
to remove as much of the tooth structure
as he would if he was using an
amalgam. Glass ionomers are generally
used to fill small areas of decay and are
used usually in areas that don t need to
withstand heavy chewing pressure.
Resin ionomers are made from glass
fillers with acrylic acids and acrylic
resin. They also are used in areas that
are not overly stressed by chewing
pressure, generally between the teeth.
Talk with your dentist about whether
glass or resin ionomers are appropriate
to your treatment.

There are literally hundreds of
* with thousands of wallpapers availableW

randomly browse through them. Typical
wallpaper categories are Country, Traditional,
Kitchen & Bath, Textures, and Kids styles.
Give some thought to your project before you go
shopping and ask yourself these questions: Are
you wanting a stripe or a floral in bright or
neutral colors? 'Will the wallpaper cover every
wall surface or only one wall or under a chair rail,
for instance? What other colors need to be
matched (carpeting) or coordinated (bedding)?
Come to Live Oak.Paint & Flooring where we
can look up these motifs you are interested in and

OUR
Suwannee Democrat


Welcome

to a new

year - and

a new

world
You may not have noticed, but in
2008 the Suwannee Democrat be-
came a daily publication - on the
Internet. For months now we've
been posting new stories on our
Web site, suwanneedemocrat.com,
at least six days a week. Some of
those stories later appear in the
print edition; others are Web Ex-
tras.
The Internet is much discussed as
the future of journalism. Maybe.
But we're focused on the here-and-
now, and to a twice-weekly publi-
cation like ours, the Web is simply
a way to reach our readers right
away. Our goal is to keep you in-
formed around the clock, and we're
working hard toward that end.
In no way does any of this di-
minish our print edition. The paper
you get in the mail or buy at the
newsstand contains just as much
news it did before. As for stories
that appear only on the Web, con-
sider them just what they are -
Web Extras.
Lots of folks have noticed our
new approach. Traffic on our Web
site has risen more than 50 percent
since last fall, and we only expect
it to grow. In addition to expanding
our news coverage, we've got even
more in mind for 2009, including
expanded photo galleries and ways
to order prints online. We'll tell'
you all about these innovations as
we add them.
Meanwhile, you might as well
bookmark suwanneedemocrat.com
right now, if you haven't already. If
you want to stay current with
what's happening in Suwannee
County, you'll be going there a lot
in 2009.


OPINION


A program to put brain in high gear?


By Dwain Walden
Someone is always
coming up with new giz-
mos and new processes to
accentuate and accelerate
our activities.
Remember when
"speed reading" was a big thing? Read
a 300-page book in one hour. I don't
hear much about speed reading any-
more.
I think the speed reading thing was
summed up pretty well by Woody Allen
who said, "I took a speed-reading
course and read War and Peace in twen-
ty minutes. It involves Russia."
So today I got this question via e-
mail from a software company. It asks,
"How fast is your brain?"
Their program is called InSight, and
it's supposed to have a real-world im-
pact on everyday activities such as gro-
cery shopping, playing sports and im-
proving driving skills..
.I won't pooh pooh efforts to stimu-
late brain activity. I believe it has so-
cially redeeming value. But it's just a
theory of mine that quality of thought
might be just as important as speed of
thought. For instance, if I drop my jelly
sandwich in a fire ant bed, speed of
thought combined with reflex action
might cause me to grab it up as quickly
as I can. On the other hand, quality of
thought might suggest that I cut my
losses and make myself another sand-
wich.
When I was growing up, a lot of the


guys were always talking about how
quickly their cars would go from zero
to 60 miles per hour. My question was,
what are you going to do when you get
there five seconds ahead of me?
I never owned a muscle car. I was
just proud that my old four-door
Oldsmobile would crank and get there
eventually. That probably has a lot to
do with why I'm not a big NASCAR
fan today. I can appreciate the prowess
of NASCAR drivers and the power of
their machines. But the fact is, they dri-
ve at speeds up to 180 miles per hour
for three hours and never get out of a
space that's no bigger than a cotton
patch.
On the fast brain thing, I think it's
very important that we understand the
difference between quick thinking and
clear thinking. There is a time for both,
Ecclesiastically speaking. And perhaps
someone might come up with a pro-
gram that facilitates the other part of
that tandem.
I could have speed read "The Last of
The Mohicans" and much like Woody
Allen, determined that it involved our
raw frontier and a fellow named Hawk-
eye. But I took my time up in the hay
loft on a Saturday afternoon, and I
imagined myself stalking a white tail
deer through a snow covered forest,
knowing that I only had the opportunity
of one kill shot from my flintlock mus-
ket. And of course, I was playing the
role of Hawkeye who two chapters ear-
lier had just escaped'a war party of


Hurons.
I can think of times when I had to
think quickly - like can I make it to the
fence before that sow gnaws my
jeans off or should I scranble up the
Chinaberry tree? And there were times
when I gave situations much fore-
thought and decided that if I lured the
sow away a great distance from her
pigs with some corn, I reduced those
variables that could diminish my
chances for longevity.
And to be honest, there were times
when I didn't think at all. That bully
didn't look all that big until I could
only see him with one good eye.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Remembering


Coach A

These are the
stories you hate to
write but someone
has to. A good young
man of our
community has
passed away. Coach
A wasa jock, he was
also a son, a father, a
brother, a teacher, a
friend. I knew
Tommy when he i
went by the
nickname "Scoop." '
He was a pretty darn
good high school Sp rtt
baseball player. He Sportabout
wasn't going to the
pros but he wasn't a Tom n
slouch. He married
the prettiest girl in high school and after a stint as a
sheriff's deputy became a mainstay at SMS.
When you entered his office it was like the Fred
Bear museum. He was an avid sportsman. From
hog hunting to girls volleyball coach, he ran the
.gambit. Tommy loved sports and just as importantly
he loved the kids who played. He tried to change
attitudes, he tried to change lives whether it was
through boys baseball or girls softball. Tommy was
a dean of students at SMS and kids genuinely liked
him. He was fair, and somehow still understood
what it was like to be in 6th or 7th or 8th grade. He
truly understood the "rites of passage" and attitudes.
of first time teenagers. You might could fool mom
and dad and grandma but you weren't fooling Mr.
A. He got down to your level or brought you up to
his. Whatever it took to improve the situation.
Tommy was a reasonable man whose decisions
were not etched in stone but based on common
sense. He handed down detentions and suspensions
and had no problem changing them if he was
wrong. Tommy's great asset was his empathy. He
never had a problem asking for advice or asking for
one of his athletic programs.
People may forget he put on dances, brought in a
magic show, had faculty student games and coached
whatever needed coaching. I won't forget what
Tommy did for this community. We have a bunch of
ball fields around town. Whether they be at a school
or in the recreation department I think it's about
time we name one. I have a suggestion.

News from the Department of Environmental Protection


DEP Provides Assistance to St. Marks Wildlife

Refuge in Whooping Crane Reintroduction Project


Innovative partnership protects endangered species


ST. MARKS - The Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) announced the anticipat-
ed arrival of a flock of endangered
whooping cranes to the region in
January. The cranes' arrival is a part
of the Whooping Crane Eastern Part-
nership's (WCEP) Whooping Crane
Reintroduction Project at the St.
Marks National Wildlife Refuge. An
international partnership of public
and private organizations, WCEP is
conducting the reintroduction project
in an effort to return this endangered
species to its historic range in eastern
North America:
To prepare for the cranes, the
wildlife refuge constructed a three-
acre pen with two ponds to provide
protective habitat. The permit for en-
closure construction was issued by
DEP in September and the enclo-
sures were constructed and complet-
ed in October with the assistance of
local volunteers and the Wakulla
High School Navy Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps.
The project, designed by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, also in-
cluded placing oyster shell in the
two ponds to provide a roosting area.
Within the ponds, reefs were built
with sandbags and oyster shells,
which will be used to teach the
cranes to sleep in the water to avoid
predators. To aid in the construction,
DEP's Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic
Preserve donated much of the oyster
shells for the project which was also
completed in October. To fully pro-
tect the birds, the final authorization
to close portions of Mensler Creek,
Cow Creek and the surrounding
marshes to the public has been grant-
ed by DEP
"To protect the whooping cranes
and enhance their chances of suc-
cess, a protected roosting environ-
ment and seasonal closure of two
creeks leading to the site w as ap-
proved," said j.~West.l'is?
trict Director Dick Fancher. "We are
honored to be part of this innovative
partnership to bring back a special
endangered species."


"To protect the whooping cranes and
enhance their chances of success, a
protected roosting environment and
seasonal closure of two creeks lead-
ing to the site was approved."
- Dick Fancher
DEP Northwest District Director

In 1950 there were estimated to be
only 16 birds remaining in the wild.
Presently there are approximately
525 birds in existence, 375 in the
wild. The only wild migratory popu-
lation winters in the Aransas Nation-
al Wildlife Refuge in Texas and sum-
mers in Wood Buffalo National Park
in Canada. Because the birds are
concentrated in one area of the coun-
try, the Whooping Crane Recovery
Team (WCRT), which is comprised
of ten members, plans actions to pro-
tect the Aransas/Wood Buffalo natur-
al flock and is charged with estab-
lishing two additional flocks in ef-
forts to safeguard the whooping
crane from possible extinction.
The team's efforts to establish a
non-migratory whooping crane flock
began in Florida in 1993, using
cranes hatched in captivity. In Sep-
tember, 1999, after searching for the
best possible location.to establish a
second migratory flock, the team
recommended that the flock be
taught a route with central Wisconsin
- as the summer location and the west
coast of Flon 6 the wintering lo-
cation. The WCRT sanctioned Oper-
ation Migration's ultralight-led mi-
gration technique as the main rein-
troduction method.


The most recent effort began on
Oct. 17, when 14 ultralight-led
cranes left from central Wisconsin's
Necedah National Wildlife Refuge
on their migration route. Upon arriv-
ing in Florida after traveling more
than 1,100-miles, the cranes will be
split into two groups. One group will
winter at Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge and one group will
spend the winter at St. Marks Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge to increase the
chances of success for the project.
Currently, the cranes are in
Franklin County, Tennessee and are
expected to resume their journey and
arrive at the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge after the first of the
year. The cranes will remain at the
refuge until they are ready to migrate
back to Wisconsin and it is anticipat-
ed that they will return sometime
around the end of March.
"The St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge is honored to have been des-
ignated one of only three whooping
crane sites in the program," said Ter-
ry Peacock, St. Marks Wildlife
Refuge Manager. "We are over-
whelmed with the community sup-
port there has been for bringing this
significant program to Wakulla
County."
The St. Marks National Wildlife
Refuge, established in 1931 to pro-
vide wintering habitat for migratory
birds, is one of the oldest refuges in
the National Wildlife Refuge Sys-
tem. The refuge encompasses 68,000
acres spread out between WakullA,
Jefferson, and Taylor counties along
the Gulf Coast of northwest Florida.

Project, go to WCEP's Web site at

TALLAHASSEE - In the spirit of
the holiday season, the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protec-
tion's (DEP) Office of Greenways &
Trails (OGT) wrapped up another
year of its ongoing efforts to pro-
mote trail use and safety with a sea-
sonal giftfor its youngest trail users.
Bike safety helmets, provided by
the DEP Office of Greenways &
Trails, were delivered Wednesday to
Cops for Kids Tallahassee, Inc, and
the Christmas Connection, two non-
profit organizations. Cops for Kids
Tallahassee provides bicycles for dis-
advantaged children each December
while Christmas Connection pro-
vides basic needs of underprivileged
families in Northwest Florida each
holiday season. Together they will
partner to deliver the helmets to Tal-
lahassee area families.
The DEP Office of Greenways &
Trails works throughout the year to
promote bike safety and educate trail
users about the Florida law that re-
quires children under the age of 16
to wear safety helmets when riding a
bicycle.
"Our efforts to ensure the safety of
those who enjoy Florida's trails is
one of the many reasons that the
state was recently named by Ameri-
can Trails as Best Trails State," said
Jena Brooks Director of the DEP Of-
fice of Greenways & Trails. "To the
extent that our resources permit, we
have reached out to young people
who might not otherwise have access
to protective gear and bike safety ed-
ucation. For many, a bicycle is rot
just a form of recreation but also a
source of mobility for purposes of
school and work."
For all of its managed trails and
special events, OGT maintains a sup-
ply of helmets to give to underage
cyclists who are found riding the
trails without a helmet. Kid-friendly


educational material about bike safe-
ty and how to wear a helmet correct-
'ly is also supplied with the helmets.
Cops For Kids-Tallahassee, Inc. is
-a non-profit organization (501C)
comprised of law enforcement offi-
cers in the Big Bend Area. Since
1999, this organization has provided
more than 4,000 bicycles, helmets,
as well as school clothes and sup-
plies to disadvantaged children in the
area.
"Thanks to the helmets contributed
by the DEP Office of Greenways &
Trails, we can direct our funds to the
purchase of additional bicycles," said
David Pate, co-founder and secre-
tary-treasurer of Cops for Kids-Talla-
hassee. "This allows us to reach
more of the community and the edu-
cational materials support our com-
mon goal of providing a safe,
healthy means of recreation and
transportation for children in need."
The DEP's Office of Greenways &
Trails, which was recently named
America's Best Trails State by
American Trails, manages eight state
trails, in addition to the Marjorie
Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.
The Greenway is Florida's longest
green corridor stretching 110 miles
from the St. Johns River near Palatka
to the Gulf of Mexico near Inglis. Of
the eight state trails, six are rail-
trails, which are railroad corridors
Converted to recreational trails for
hiking, biking, skating, equestrian
activities and alternative transporta-
tion. Through Florida Forever, the
state's premier land acquisition pro-
gram, $4.5 million is allocated annu-
ally to purchase and preserve land
for Florida's greenways and trails.

ca's Best Trails State, see

enforcement agents were able to quickly solve this en-
vironmental crime,"' said DEP Division of Law En-
forcement Director Henry Barnet. "We encourage all
citizens to utilize tools like dialing #DEP from a cellu-
lar phone or calling the State Warning Point (1-877-2-
SAVE-FL) to help us enforce Florida's laws and to
better protect our environment."
The illegal dump site was discovered Dec. 4 by Of-
ficer John Morrison of the Vero Beach Police Depart-
ment, who notified DEP by calling the State Warning
Point. Officer Morrison was aware of the procedure of
reporting environmental crimes after attending DEP's
Environmental Crimes outreach training earlier this
year.
After an inspection of the taxidermy business locat-
ed at 4675 US Highway 1 in Vero Beach, DEP agents
discovered the illegal disposal of business-generated
waste in an undeveloped privately-owned piece of
property several miles away from Frank's Taxidermy.
Approximately 350 pounds of solid waste was. discov-
ered. including animal remains, taxidermy waste,
househotf waste and resins. ......,
When investigators interviewed Cox, he revealed he
had illegally dumped material at this site at least once
before during the nearly one-year period he worked
part-time for Frank's Taxidermy. He also told authori-
ties that he dumped the material in this location be-
cause the Indian River County Convenience Center
for waste was closed on the day he needed to drop it
off.

Physical Therapy Essential to Sports Injury Recovery


Sports injuries happen to the best ofus. For proof of that, one need look r
further than professional sports leagues, where injuries have derailed
seasons, careers, and become as much a part of the game as bats, balls,
cleats, and spikes.
As proof that injuries are a big part of athletics, consider the case of the
2008 New York Yankees. Boasting the highest payroll ($209 million) in t
history of Major League Baseball, they could also likely claim the dubious
distinction of paying the most money to injured players. Less than two
months into the season, the Yankees had already seen the game's highest
paid player, Alex Rodriguez (making $28 million in 2008) spend two wee
on the disabled list, while catcher Jorge Posada (earning $13.1 million in
2008), spent significantly more time on the sidelines unable to perform.
What's more, pitcher Carl Pavano, making $11 million in 2008, was not
expected to throw a single pitch for the team during the 2008 season.
What professional sports injuries illustrate is that no one, not even the bes
and brightest athletes in the world, is immune to injury. But avoiding inju
isn't necessarily as hard as it seems. Knowing what sports injuries are anc
how to react to them should one occur is a big part of recovering and
avoiding further injury in the future.
What Are Sports Injuries?
You don't have to be a professional or even amateur athlete to suffer a
sports injury. In fact, many times those most susceptible to sports injury a
people who simply don't know what they are and how they're caused. Fo
the sake of brevity, sports injuries in this article will be defined as injuries
to the musculoskeletal system, including muscles, bones, and tissues sucl
as cartilage. The most common sports injuries include:
* Sprains: A sprain occurs when the connective tissue that joins the end o
one bone with another is stretched or torn. Those connective tissues are
known as ligaments. Sprains are caused by trauma such as a fall or blow
the body that knocks a joint out of position. Ankles, knees and wrists are
most vulnerable to sprains.
* Strains: A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is pulled, torn or twist
Strains are noncontact injuries, such as those that occur from
overstretching. A common example of a strain is a muscle spasm.
* Knee injuries: According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services, the knee is the most commonly injured joint. Orthopedic surge
see more than 5.5 million people
annually for knee injuries, which can Physical Therapl
include runner's knee (pain or
tenderness close to the knee cap at the , .
front side of the knee), tendinitis and /7 a '2o ,

io How Are Sports Injuries Treated?
For severe sports injuries that require a doctor's care and supervision,
athletes will need to discuss a plan of rehabilitation. For less severe injuries
that don't require surgery, physical therapy might be enough. Physical
therapists are trained health care professionals'who are skilled in developing
he rehabilitation programs to facilitate your recovery. These programs can
is range from relatively easy to highly difficult. While this isn't the case with
all sports injuries, many require a two-pronged approach to physical therapy.
eks * Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation is often rooted in a gradual exercise
program that is designed to return the injured body part back to normal.
Each injury is different, but an early part of most rehabilitation will focus on
getting the injured body part moving as soon as possible. This is meant to
speed up the healing process. This movement does not involve aggressively
moving the injured part. Instead, it's more likely going to be range-of-
At motion exercises where you then move to stretching and strengthening the
iry injured part.
d
These beginning stages are often dull, but discipline is required. Physical
therapists aim for you to progress through rehabilitation, and that's not
going to be done overnight. Your program is likely to involve exercises for
flexibility, endurance and strength, none of which are completely recovered
in a moment's time. Patience and perseverance will be essential factors as to
how successful your rehabilitation goes, and those are entirely up to you.
ire
)r * Rest: The other important element of physical therapy is rest. You'll need
s a proper balance between rest and rehabilitation, and adhering to the rest


portion of your physical therapy is
just as important as sticking to the
rehabilitation schedule.

Chiropractic

is happy to announce the addition of the

. Conieteele BioMeridian Unit
This new state-of-the-art assessment tool is used for overall health and wellness. The BloMenrdan Unil uses
bioelectrical impedance measurements (BIM) to measure the electrical conductivity between specific points
on the body by creating a "circuit" and then measuring the flow of electricity between those points. This type of
testing has been used for many years.in the medical field. Examples would be EKG's and EEG's used to
measure heart and brain function. There is substantial scientific information supporting BIM testing.
This unit is designed to measure 58 different electrical "circuits" in the body related to specific organs and
systems. It uses points on the hands and feet. It is non-invasive, safe and painless. Your measurements are
then compared against a database of over 1.5 million tests to identify areas of your body that have moved
away from the norm. With that powerful information the BIM assessment software will assist Dr. Steele in
effectively formulating a comprehensive support program that includes detailed recommendations for an
optimal supplementation regimen customized to your specific needs. Our goals is to get you feeling well and
functioning well using chiropractic adjustments, nutritional support, and teaching you how to eat well.
As overall wellness is becoming more and more important. Dr. Steele is working diligently to find more ways
to bring more tools into the practice to assist our patients achieve greater wellness with less cost and more
efficiency.-Our goals is to coach people into wellness. We offer Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, Massage
Therapy and nutritional evaluations.
Please call our office for more information and scheduling an appointment.
