Charles and Sherry T,
McNally renewing
Their wedding vows.,
- Photo: Submitted


Recently, Charles and
Sherry McNally decided to
renew their wedding vows
at Surrey Place Care Cen-
ter after being married for
over 50 years. When they
first got married, they paid
$2.00 for their marriage li-
cense. Charleys told Sherry/
that the first 50 year Kv-
ered half the cost of that li-
cense. Now that 50 years.
have past, he wanted to re-
new his vows with her in
order to get his money's
worth.
On March 16, in the
courtyard at Surrey Place
Care Center the Chaplain,
Lester Curry, performed
the renewal ceremony with
family, friends, staff and
resident/guests in atten-
dance. Chaplain Curry read
the Love Chapter (I Cor.
13) and told this "young at
heart" couple that they
were a testimony to others
on how a husband and wife
should love each other.
The familiar vows for
"better 'or worse", "richer
or poorer", "in sickness or
in health", ring true for this
couple. The McNally's can
attest that "love" can carry,
them through thick and
thin.
The McNally's children
and the staff at Surrey
Place Care Center hosted a
reception that followed the
renewal service. It was the
perfect day for all who at-
tended.

OPINION


The glass.


half full or


half empty

I often note that so much in life
is a matter of perspective and that
it's important in most cases to think
more than one-layer deep.
That said, some people will seek
minute particles, sometimes out of
context, to justify what they are do-
ing. And that'sInot'so much that the .
justification has much merit but be-
cause they really. like what they are,doing.
I've noticed, over the years that some folks will
pick scriptures from the Bible to justify their ac-
tion; And sometimes those scriptures may be taken
out of context.
Now I don't know where the snake handlers fit
into this. I just can't see anyone enjoying picking up
a rattlesnake and dancing about the chitrch with it.
These folks refer to Old Testament scripture about
"taking up the serpent," I'm more prone to those
verses that warn me not to tempt God. Besides,
when we went into the woods, mama always said,
"Now y4al watch for snakes." And she didn't mean
to catch'a few to bring to church on Sunday. But
when it comes to faith, to each his pwn,..,
I .am guilty, however, of taking justification to the
extremes in a few instances. For instance. I will cut
a slice of caramel cake and tell my wife that it's low
calorie. She asks me how I came to that conclusion.
And I tell her that normally I would eat two slices,
but tonight I'm only eating one, so I'm'only getting
half the calories. Then she looks at me the way I
look at some politicians.
Speaking of calories, a minor league baseball
team in Grand Rapids, Mich., wilfbe serving a "bo-
dacious burger" this summer. It weighs foar pounds,
cost $20 and contains 4,800 calories. It has five
beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of
chili, and it's served on an 8-inch bun.
Now the first thing that someone is likely to say
is,. "Wow! That's a heart attack by the fourth in-
nihg!" .
But as I suggested, think more than one. layer
deep. Perception is important. Very few individu is
will eat one by himself. This thing will feed five
'ople. 'u:]Lst slice it up and divide it by five ad
you've got 960 calories and that's about the going .
rate at a ballpark where yqu are.very unlikely to
find iofu. .
But the first person that.does eat the whole thiig
in one sitting will get a free T-shirt. They didn't say
what would be on the T-shirt aside from chili stains.
I would think that it shotild say, "I closed my left
*j ventricle at the Whitecaps game." l
So a bodacious burger is really a lot to say a out
nothing. It's just five little burgers under one rqof.
Perhaps the poster child for perception disc ssion
has to do with the glass being half full or half/emp-
ty. This was meant to be about optimism and pes-
simism, I think. I've found that this thought i most
applicable in two instances. One is when yo have a
,really smooth drink to pontificate upon. An the
other is wfien you're having to drink all th "Go-
lightly" right before your colonoscopy.

Grady's


is back


in business
.Staff

Last
.December, a
local
automobile, !
dealer was
forced to shut
its doors due
to increased
costs,
consumer Grady Cadle
uncertainty
and an
economic downturn. Despite the
recession, Grady's Automotive on
500 W. Howard Street in Live
Oak reopened its doors on
Monday.
"We are pleased to open our'
service doors to meet the
automotive service needs of our
communityy' "said owner Grady
Cadle. "Customers can expect the'
same great service on their
vehicles and more as we continue
to expand our offerings.
Formerly a General Motors
franchised dealer, Cadle made
several changes to the old
business identity, including the
introduction of the Wildfire
Motors brand in addition to the
automotive service offerings.
Wildfire Motors is a low priced
manufacturer and distributor of
ATVs, dirt bikes, UTVs, motor'
scooters and mopeds.
Wildfire products at Grady's
Automotive will eventually
include DOT approved three-
Wheeled vehicles and two-
wheeled motorcycles. Fully.
-electric vehicles intended f9r in-
town and neighborhood use will
also be available on a special
order basis as the product (
offerings at Grady's Automotive
expand. .
"In our current economy, a
business must be able to adapt to
meat and exceed consumer
demands," said Cadle. "And just
as before, our service center is
state of the art for diagnosing and
repairing all domestic cars and
trucks as well as most imports."


The first Florida Small Farms
and Alternative Enterprises
, Conference will be held August
1-2. The statewide event is be-
ing offered by the UF/IFAS and
FAMU Small Farms and Alter-
native Enterprises program.
The conference will be held
at Osceola County's Heritage
Park in Kissimmee. It will in-
clude a trade show of at least
100 exhibitors and six concur- .
rent educational sessions in-

Staying safe

during a flood
By Jeff atlers
During a flood it is important to be prepared. The
American Red Cross offers these tips.
- Make a kit: It should include three daNs' supply
of food and water. A first aid kit should be accessi-
ble as well. Include a battery -operated radio, batter-
ies. flashlight.'medicine, cash or other important
items and seal all in a watertight, easi to carrm, con-
tainer.
Make a plan: Have a contact in place that you
have to check in %with familN or someone w ho
, lives out of the area. Make sure pets and livestock
are taken care of ahead of time and if you plan on
staying in a shelter or lodging facility make sure
they take pets if you have them.
Be informed: Make sure you kno%\ which Web
sites to go to and %what phone numbers to call for in-
formation or emergency situauons Make law en-
forcement aware ahead of time of any special needs
you may have. Listen to yo.r local radio stations or
tune into to your local television stations to stay up-
dated Always follow advice of local law enforce-
ment. if you are told to evacuate do so immediately.
Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters.
Watch out for dow ned power lines and the smell
of gas when entering structures. Wildlife have a ten-
dency to occupy vacated dwellings so be careful
when re-entering structures.

Oscar was like a child to our
family; my parents even called
her their "granddogger." She
brought a smile to the faces of
everyone who came in contact
with her, from the people
passing by her in the car to
little children who always
wanted to pet her. We always
said she didn't know she was a
D-O-G and not to tell her
because she would require
therapy. Oscar came to us at
six weeks of age and left us 12
years later. We're better
humans'because of her. The
love and loyalty she brought us
was unconditional. If only "
people greeted each other the
way she did when we came
home each evening.

you're after plaque that y~utr toothbrush
couldn't reach, you want to slide the floss
gently under the gum line at each tooth.
Slide it in jintil you feel resistance. Press
the floss against the side of the tooth
and pull up .or down, depending on
whether you're working on, upper or
lower teeth. Don't saw back and forth.
If you're new to flossing, know that it's
not unusual for there to be a little gum
bleeding. It should ubt.a.de : ire gum,;O
get accustomed to flossing. You can help
cut down on the amount of plaque that
develops in, your mouth by cutting back
on the amount of sticky carbohydrates
you consume. Talk with your dentist
about flossing and other steps you can
take to rid your mouth of plaque.

Different Types of Therapy for Leukemia
Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the bone marrow and the
body's lymphatic system. Production of abnormal white blood cells
is increased in individuals affected by this condition. Leukemia is
classified based on how fast the condition progresses (acute or
chronic) and by the type of white blood cell affected (lyinphocytic or
myelogenous). The major types of leukemia include acute
lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), acute myelogenous leukemia (AML),
chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and chronic myelogenous
leukemia (CML). Acute forms are morelikely to occur in children,
while adults are more likely to be affected by chronic forms.
Common symptoms of leukemia include swollen lymph nodes,
excessive sweating at night, and/or bone pain.
Leukemia treatment is very complex. The therapy chosen depends
on many factors, including the individual's age and state of health.
Chemotherapy is a common type of treatment for leukemia.
Daunorubicin (Cerubidine) and idarubicin (Idamycin) may be used
to treat AML. Kinase inhibitor medications, such as imatinib
(Gleevec), may be used to treat CML. Dasatinib (Sprycel) and
nilotinib (Tasigna) are other approved kinase inhibitors. Radiation
therapy,'bone marrow transplant, and stem cell transplantation are
other possible treatment options. 517832-V

pseudo sick so you can watch
opening day on the TV. Nowadays no
need to get sick, unless you have a
night job. Too many games at night.
If it's baseball season it is time for
predictions.
I am thinking an all St. Louis
series like 1944, the Cards vs. the
Browns, What's that, no St. Louis
Browns? How about 1951, all New
'York, the'Giafts vs. the Yankees. Oh
the Giants moved to San Francisco. I
'guess I need to pick up a copy of the
World Journal Tribune and get
current.
Last year I was horrible, picking "
the Mets and the Tigers. Ron Paul
got closer to the White House then,
the Tigers got to a pennant. The Nlvets
choked worse thanithe 1964 Phillies.'
I did, however, say the Yankees
couldn't win without Torre and the
S,Rays would fold. I was half right (or
'half wrong). This year I.look for the,
Red Sox, White Sox and Angels to
win their divisions and the TWins to'
be a Wild Card. I believe Boston will.
win. In the National League I see the
Mets, Cubs and Dodgers wingnig
their divisions and Houston as a Wild
Card. The Red Sox and Mets in the i
World Series, with Boston winning.
No baseball prediction would be
j- right without picking MVPs and Cy
Young winners. The Mets' Jose
Reyes in the National and Jason Bay
in the American are players of the
-.year.
Johan Santana from the Mets and
Roy Halladay of the Blue Jays are
the pitchers of the year. These guys
win because Sandy Koufax and Yogi
Berra are retired. Spring is here, and
. as usual the season like the school
year will be 180 days long, beginning
[ with snow and theWorld Series
being played in a cold weather state
ending with snow. As Ernie Banks.
would say ... "let's play two."

Spring into April with a green home


DEP offers
environmentally
friendly tips for
thinking green
when spring cleaning

TALLAHASSEE- Spring is
here and it's time for spring
cleaning. The Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) encourages res-
idents to think green when
spring cleaning this year by
using eco friendly cleaning
products, finding new life for
unused items and properly
disposing unwanted medica-
tions.
"Spring cleaning is the per-
fect time to begin making.
choices that protect Florida's
natural environment," said
DEP Director of Sustainable
Initiatives Deas Bohn.
"Whether choosing to use
non-toxic green:cleaners, .
learning the proper methods
for prescription drug disposal
or implementing\ a household'
recycling plan, these choices
notonly protect and preserve
natural resources, but help to
save money and protect hu-
man health too."
Many common cleaning
products are hazardous to the
environment when poured
down the drain or thrown .
away. Consumers can use
recipes to make cleaners' at,
home that are equally as ef-
fective as traditional products,
and safer for people and the
Environment. DEP offers tips
and recipes for "green" clean-
ing at:,
www.dep.state.fl.us/pollution-
preventidn/green.cleaning.ht
m
For those who don't have
timevto make their own clean-
ers, there are now hundreds of
environmentally friendly
products widely available., .
through stores and the Inter-
net. Important safety and en-
vironmental features of these


products include being non-
toxic, biodegradable, made
from renewable resources and
petroleum-free. The Green
Seal, EcoLabel or other third
party certification assures en-
vironmentally friendly con-
tents. Old cleaners should be
properly disposed of at the
nearest city or county house-
hold hazardous Waste collec-
tion center rather than being
thrown in-the trash..
Another way to think green
this spring is to find new life
for unused or unwanted items.
DEP offers the following tips
to give unwanted items a sec-
ond life.

1. Non-profit thrift stores
accept gently used items and,
* usually gives donors a receipt
to use for tax purposes.

2. Give away old clothing,
household items or lawn care
items to a neighbor, friend, or
co-worker who may need
them.,

3. Freecycle Network is a!
web-based, nonprofit organi-
zation that helps people offer
up items that other people
will happily take .
(www.freecycle.com). Also,,
you can offer things for free
to people in your area on an,
online, bulletin board or news-
paper.

4. Host a yard sale' or sell
your older items on an online
bulletin board.

5. Recycle everything that
you can, such as small pieces
of unfinished wood, glass jars
and boxes gathering dust in
your garage. Also, recycle
household hazardous wastes
such as oil, batteries, fluores-
cent lamps. paint, and pesti- ,,
p: ides : ,,. ,, ,...,: , t
(www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/cat
egories/bazardous/pages/hous
ehold.htm).


6. Recycle unwanted televi-
sions and electronics. Recy-
cling your television, instead
of throwing it away keeps,
waste out of landfills, and, al-
lows the recovery of electron-
ic components that contain
lead and other toxic materials.
(www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/cat
egories/electronics/pages/tele-
visions.htm).

7. Convert scrap paper into
telephone answering pads, or
scratch pads. Print drafts on
the blank side of used paper.
Reuse file folders and ring
binders.

8. Many office product.sup-
pliers will take back empty
ink/toner cartridges, recycle
them for you, and allow store
credit towards future pUrchas-
es. (www.Tecycleplace.com)
will pay up to $1 for returned
ink/toner cartridges.

9. Reuse packing cartons
and shipping.papers.

10. Save and reuse gift jbox-
es, ribbons and larger pieces
of wrapping and tissuepaper.
In addition, when disposing
of expired or unwanted pre-
scriptions, and over-the-,
counter medications this,
spring, it is important to ,
choose a method of disposal *
that won't compromise th .
environment. The preferred
method of disposal is with the
household garbage rather than
flushing medication down the
toilet or drain. This method
helps protect Florida's water
bodies and drinking water by
reducing pharmaceutical',
traces.
"The proper disposaliof ex-
pired or unwanted, medica-
tions helps protect Florida's ,
residents and visitors as well

Late Model Champion
Johnny Collins took the
wheel for the night in the
#54B Modified as Tiny
Greene came back to racing
in his #54 Modified. All
these guys just added more
talent to the field for the
fans.
Jamie Carter had the pole
for the feature race and
quickly took the point on
the green over Rob Under-
wood, Dale Murray, Tiny
Greene, and Nick Kirkus.
But before the race had a
chance to really get heated
up, the caution comes out
on lap 1 for Jimmy.Carter
who has stopped in turn 2.
Carter is pushed into the
pits, done for the night be-
fore it even really got start-
ed. On the restart, Under-
wood quickly takes the
point over Carter, Murray,
Grehn, and Charlie MacNi-
chol. But just as fast as Un-
derwood took the point on
the restart, Carter takes the
point back as Underwood
goes to second. Murray
puts the heat on Underwood
and takes over second as
Underwood goes to third
with Ranidy Hecker coming
into the top five as he takes
over fifth from MacNichol.
Greene puts the heat on Un-
derwood and takes over
third as Underwood goes to
fourth.
Blair, experiencing his
first ride in his new dirt
modified, is quietly moving
up from the rear and.is run-
ning eighth. Not a bad job
since it is his first time in
his new machine.
Carter, who looks like he
is on rails and flying around
the track, maintains the
point with no one even .near
enough to touch him. On
lap 14, Barry Sheffield re-
tires his ride to the pits, .
done for the night. On lap.
16, Rick Scott retires his
ride to the pits. With only
two laps to go, Carter leads
the way over Murray,'
Greene, Underwood and
Hecker.
Carter takes the check-
ered flag over Dale Murray,
Tiny Greene, Rob Under-
wood and Randy Hecker.
Joining Carter on the stage
was also Rob Underwood
who also gladly accepted,
his fourth place trophy for
the night. Heat winners
were Dale Murray and Jim-
my Carter.
Next up were the al\] ays
action packed Street Stocks.
Seventeen cars were in the
field for their feature race
with Tim Hughes on the
pole. But as the green
dropped, it was Charlie
MacNichol who quickly
jumped out front followed
by Bubba Christian, Grandy
Christian, Tim Hughes, and
Pat Buckley.' Buckley
Sastes no time passing
Hughes as he takes over
fourth followed by Steve
Mooers in fifth. Mooers


and D.J. Nobles give the
crowd quite a show as they
battle for fifth going side-
by-side with Mooers keep-
ing his fifth place position.
Lap 6 sees Grady Christian
take over the point as Mac-
Nichols settles into second.
By lap 8, it is Grady Christ-
ian, MacNichol, Bubba
Christian, Buckley, Mooers;
Nobles, Phillip Brown,'
Kenny Sowers, Michael
Tovet, and John Ward lead-
ing the way.
On lap 10, Tim Hughes
slows on the backstretch
and is off the track. On lap
12, Rodney Wright has
problems and he is also off
the track, dorie for the night.
Lap 13 sees Bubba Christ-
.ian charge MacNichol for
second but MacNichpol
holds but only one lap later,
Christian is able to make
the pass and takes over sec-
ond as MacNichol goes to
third. Once again, it is
nephew chasing uncle for
the lead.
Grady Christian takes his
fourth win of the year over
nephew Bubba Christian,i
Charlie MacNichol, Pat
Buckley and Steve Mooers.,
Both Christians stop on the
frontsiretch' along with
Buckley who is your fourth
place finisher. For those of
you who are wondering
why the name Pat Buckley
sounds familiar, it is be-
cause he raced for quite a
few years at New Smyrna
Speedway in the Super
Stock division but has now
found more fun on dirt.
Rodney Wright and Pat
Buckley took the Street
Stock heat wins.
Twenty five Late Models
were on hand for their fea-

Biologists rescue tiny manatee calf in Levy County


Biologists with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research In-
stitute rescued a small female manatee
calf from the Withlacoochee River in
Yankeetown on' Thursday, April 2.
The tiny calf is one of the smallest
manatees ever rescued by the FWC
Marine Mammal Stranding Team,


measuring just over 3 feet in length
and weighing only 50 pounds. Biolo-
gists rescued the manatee calf because
there was no sign of her mother in the
area. Since the calf is so young, she
would not be able to survive on her
own. She was taken to Tampa's
Lowry Park Zoo, where she is receiv-
ing 24-hour care from the zoo's mana-


tee rehabilitation team.
The FWC Wildlife Alert hotline re-
ceived the original report of the
orphaned calf Thursday afternoon
from a resident who lives on the river
where the calf was rescued.
The United States Coast Guard as-
sisted FWC biologists with the rescue.
According to biologists, spring is


the beginning of the manatee calving
season. During this time, the potential
for orphaned calves increases.
To report a dead or distressed mana-
tee, call the FWC Wildlife Alert
hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).
For more information on manatee
research, visit
http://research.MyFWC.cornm/manatee.


FWC: "Take extra care on waterways as


manatees migrate after a rough winter"


The FWC urges boaters to follow the posted speed
zones and watch for manatees as temperatures warm.
Manatees are once again moving from warm water sites
to coastal areas where they forage for food, rest aind

care for their young.
The number of documented manatee deaths resulting
from watercraft strikes was higher than average
statewide from December to March 27. It was particu-
larly high in the southeastern region of Florida
where necropsy results show that at least 17 man-
.. atees died from boat strikes. The FWC has been
carefully following the mortality numbers, and re-
S searchers have provided regular updates to man-
S'I agement and law enforcement, regarding the loca-
tion and movement of manatees. FWC's Division
,' of Law Enforcement used the information to di-
rect patrols in the areas of concern.
,'1.q The public is encouraged to call FWC's
Wildlife Al6rt hotline, 1-888-404-FWCC (3922)
to report any dead or injured manatees.
Now with the warmer temperatures, manatees
will be vulnerable as they migrate and forage in
the same waterways shared by many boaters
along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
"Boaters can help manatees have a safe migra-
tion by staying in marked channels, wearing po-
larized sunglasses to improve vision, obeying
posted boat speed zones and having someone help
.scan the water when under way," said Kipp
Frohlich, leader of the FWC's Imperiled Species
Management Section.
During warm weather, some waterways will
have more restrictive waterway speed zones.
Boaters in Citrus, Hillsbbrough, Lee, Pinellas and
Volusia counties should be aware of speed zone ,
changes in a few manatee habitat locations.

MyFWC.corn/manatee.


DEP Employee Honored for Restoration Work

State environmental employee earns first place
in the Future of the Region Awards


I MANATEE COUNTY Recently, a Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection (DEP) employee was
recognized by the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Coun-
cil (TBRPC) w ith the First Place honor in its Future of
the Region Awards. DEP Southwest District restoration
expert Judy Ashton was honored for her work in the'
restoration efforts of the 482-acre Robinson Preserve
:project located in Manatee County.
: Ashton, an eight-year employee with DEP, worked
closely with Manatee County's' Conservation Lands
Management Program to securing nearly one-million
dollars in funding for the project from the United States
Environmental Protection Agency anid DEP's Bureau of
Emergency Response (BER). BER allocated funding
collected for natural resource damages which occurred
as a result of oil spills.
"'This is -a great example of how the federal, state, and
county governments can act as partners to secure fund-
ing and share environmental expertise to ensure success
for such a massive restoration effort," said. DEP, South-
west District Director Deborah Getzoff. "Beyond fund-
ing efforts, Judy lent her technical expertise to bring im-
' :'i ' ,.' ' ' ' ; ,


proved water quality to lower Tampa Bay."
Robinson Preserve is a coastal strand community lo-
cated at the mouth of the Manatee River. It is comprised
of tidal swamp, marsh, salt barrens and pine flatwoods.
Historically, it.was severely impacted by agricultural
activities which resulted in significant habitat loss, wa-
ter quality degradation, and mosquito breeding. The
restoration efforts were the result of a successful part-
n. ership of stakeholders.that includes local volunteers,
county, state, and federal agencies who invested a total
of $6.8 million in funding.
One of the innovative aspects of the project utilized
uprooted Aiustralian Pine tree-trunks that were inverted
and driven into the ground in old borrow pits to create
high-tide havens for juvenile marine species, and low-
tide feeding areas for native birds.
To learn more about the importance of DEP's.
restoration efforts, visit the DEP website at

Stayhysically Fit in an Unfit Economy

ese tough economic times when every penny counts, costly gym, ,
|ndiemierships are a common, casualty. But that doesn't mean you should
neeglect Your health.
"More than ever, it's important to make exercise part of your daily
routine,": says Don Brown, fitness expert and developer of the Ab 5
Roller(R) and Ab Coaster(R). "You cdn maintain health, lead an
energetic lifestyle and reduce stress by getting regular exercise."
The longtime fitness guru notes that physical health should not be
sacrificed to cost-cutting measures. Rather, Brown offers the following
tis fo6rthose looking to stay, or get, physically fit during tough
economic times.
Get.outdoors: Walking and jogging are great cardiovascular activities I
especially for those new, to regular exercise and they are free. What's I
mote, getting ,out in the sunlight encourages healthy circulation,
strengthens the',bdy's immune system by increasing white blood cell
count.,and hglps improve mood.'
On days when the weather isn't cooperative, take your cardio workout .
indoors. Jumping rope afd running on a treadmill are great traditional '.
iridQor exercises. Other fitness products, such as the Air ClimberTM,
cofmbine'cardio with twvist exercises that help tighten core muscles in the "
abdomen. "Focusing on core training can help ward off stress-induced
belly fat," says'Brown.
Purchase at-home fitness equipment: Fitness fanatics are likely to want
more from a workout than walking and jogging. At-home fitness
equiphidet, such as the Ab Coaster(R), provides core-strengthening
benefits similar to those you'-d get from a gym plus the convenience of ".
home.'.
,Easily assembled and taking up less space than a typical treadmill, the
,b Coaster is essentially a hybrid of two popular abdominal exercises:
te-hanging leg raise and crunches. The machine's curved track guides
"you tlbough a perfect lower abdominal lift while eliminating strain to
your neck, back and shoulders. By engaging the abs from start-to-finish,
the Ab Coaster strengthens the core with a constant contraction on every
repetition, while the multi-angle seat adjusts to target oblique muscles for ,
a complete' abdominal workout. Users have even found the unique design
to strengthen additional core-affected areas, most notably the lower back.
"I got this whole new midsection with the Ab Coaster," says Melissa V.
"You feel it working everything -- the middle, the obliques. It bums, but
it feels good because.you know you're working on that waist!"
Maintain a healthy diet: Brown emphasized the importance of a' .
healthy diet for everyone, from ardent fitness buffs to those with a more '
casual approach to exercise. Those who like to dine out or frequently
order in pan save substantial amounts of money in the current economy
simpl'./by,eating healthier and often far less expensive foods at home and
, byetihg less. hi conjunction with daily exercise, a balanced diet that
includes ultiple;servings'of fruits and vegetables is a great way to
acivii6&v i maintain optimal health, whether or not you ever enter a gym .
