Step up your pace gradually. especially in your shins once you start doing that rolling step, ending drink some extra water. your walk into a workout, but dont push so hard you forget its supposed a book or your favorite band; challenge yourself with occasional sprints; focus on your breath. take a minute to soak up all the good feelings youve just generated.

36 Gabber July 4 July 10, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com A Government Out of Controlt is July 4, or at least the week of July 4, the day we celebrate our declaration of breaking away from an oppressive British government in may have been more than slightly exaggerated, the basic premises were solid: no consent of the governed, taxation without representation, coercion by the government, and this telling declaration: "He has harass our people, and eat out their substance." the states adopted a Bill of Rights Constitution), a mix of guarantees of individual freedoms and, most important, a limit on the powers of a government over its citizens. later, we are increasingly dependent upon a central government and slowly but surely surrendering our independence with it. Growth and power of government, as the founders warned in the Federalist Papers, are not only corrupting but dangerous. Not only has our federal government grown to an excessive and powerful size, some, including President Barack not manageable, its bureaucracy swollen and its powers unchecked. simple fact: power is corrupting. tax collectors can and have exercised their powers to suppress actions and views that differ from those of the controlling government; we now have a government whose combination of power and technology permits them to eavesdrop on our private comings and goings and when they feel like it our private conversations, writing, and feeling; we now have a government that has coordinated not only the power of its tax collectors, but its myriad regulators to harass, threaten, and prosecute persons of differing political ideology; we now have a government whose justice department can and has intimidated the media and threatens to monitor free speech of U.S. citizens; we now have a government that will use those same agencies to coerce and rummage through our individual health care; we now have a government seeking the power to disarm its citizens; we now have a government seeking to trade and commerce; we now have a government whose bureaucracy feeds itself by advocating dependence have a government that produces laws that it has not read; we now have a government that passes laws are so mammoth and complex that they become enforceable only selectively; and we have a citizenry increasingly dependent upon government and personal freedoms for security. These are dangerous combinations that should be viewed in the perspective of the Declaration of and the Bill of Rights and other amendments. These are really short reads. Only a handful of pages, instead of multiple thousands, to express enduring principles that by identifying the corrupting ambitions of men seek to secure the freedom of Mankind. Whats on your mind?

The breed can be any color the coat may be long or short. These sassy little dogs are well known as purse dogs like the famous Bruiser in the movie Legally Blonde starring The fact that Chihuahuas and other toy dogs end up in shelters in high numbers has nothing to do with the breed and everything to do with this fully unsupported idea that the smaller the dog the less in need of training he is. into his bedroom, feed him breakfast in bed, put little ribbons in his mane and wait for the horse to tell him he needs to relieve himself. housebreaking. He is tired of cleaning up the messes his dog leaves in the house and is disgusted by the smell of his own designated his hallway and kitchen, both tiled, the dogs bathroom. He not only allowed his dog to urinate and defecate in those areas, he encouraged the dog. The damage created by this kind of negligence on the part of toy dog owners extends far beyond soiled grout, stained tile and ruined carpet. The unfettered yapping of an untrained dog creates tension among neighbors. The unchecked dominance of a family dog can lead to aggression toward family members, the effects of which range one of the easiest behavioral problems to solve most often land a dog in the shelter. in the boarding area across from me was a woman who was traveling with her Cavalier King Charles spaniel. The dog was elegant, smart, energetic, agile and small in stature also extremely well behaved, which behavior has nothing to do with his breed or size and everything to do and never lost sight of the fact that he is, indeed, a dog.

Answer: During the summer many people are in the woods and they often encounter poison ivy, poison oak or poison sumac, but many people are gardens. Birds often carry the seeds from these plants and deposit them in hedges, under trees and even in urban areas. Brush Killer Plus systemic herbicide. The nice thing about it is that it soaks into the plant and kills the root weeks to work, but that beats having to wade through the poison ivy to repeatedly spray. Read the label of any herbicide you use to make sure poison ivy is listed on the label. For the poison ivy growing on the tree trunks, cut the vine trunk off down low and then again on a ladder above where people might contact it in the future and remove the middle section. The rest of the upper vine will die and remain in place out of reach until someone cuts the tree down. Coat the end of the remaining stump with the herbicide. that an old mature vine with a large next to the tree trunk, the roots can sprout new stems up where ever they are growing, which can be many feet away from the tree, so look for new sprouts all over the area. the leaves of the poison ivy with as much care as possible to not get spring will allow you to spray the poison ivy as it begins to sprout in the spring, before many other plants start to grow. ivy plant that causes skin irritation and it is found in all parts of the in the future could transfer the oil skin with soap and water, the oil will go away, but the appearance of the irritated skin may become that bonds to urushiol and removes much easier to carry in the woods than soap and water. Scientists are working on a spray that will indicate where the oil is when lit up by ultraviolet light. Until then, you will need to wash all clothes that may have contact with poison ivy. Throw the cuttings away in a sealed bag. Never burn these plants or logs with the vine wrapped on it. The sap can evaporate into the smoke and coat other things (like lawn furniture) that will give you a rash. Even worse, you could get the oily smoke on your skin or even breathe it in to your throat and lungs.

Thats not to say no locals all, it takes a lot of people to plant 10,000 sea oats, and not all of them could have been volunteers from J.P. Morgan.

48 Gabber July 4 July 10, 2013 From the Desk of Sheriff Bob GualtieriPrevent Child Drownings Summer has arrived, temperatures are rising and what better way to keep the kids entertained and cool than an afternoon by the swimming pool, a trip to the beach or even a in the sun is that a sparkling pool or the inviting ocean waters can also be a summer hazard. Unfortunately, when the temperature goes up, so can the number of accidental drownings involving children. can have tragic results. Of all law enforcement calls for service, a call to a home where a child has drowned is one of the most heartbreaking. The loss of a childs life to drowning can be prevented with extra caution, common sense and inexpensive equipment. To begin with, never leave your child alone in or near a pool or other body of water, not even for a moment. Teaching a child to swim for sport, safety and survival is a must. Remember, however, that even if they have mastered their swimming skills, nothing can replace proper supervision as the most important step to water safety. The same common sense approach applies while at the beach or water park, even when lifeguards are present. especially if you are responsible for watching children around the pool can prevent a serious poolside incident from becoming fatal. Keep rescue equipment on hand and a phone nearby for emergencies. to properly install and secure fences, screened enclosures and lock sliding glass doors to ensure that young children cannot wander into the water unsupervised. Remember a torn screen or doggie door can be an invitation to a curious toddler who will not always recognize the danger that may be waiting outside. pool access is another option. Keep furniture away from safety fences to prevent children from from the pool when not in use so there is no temptation for a child to retrieve them and accidentally fall in. For more information, access the Pinellas County Health Departments Summer Safety video To learn more about swimming pool safety, swimming lessons and CPR contact the following providers: Chapter) at www.redcross.org Poolsafetycouncil.org This summer, protect yourself, your loved ones and even your friends and neighbors by taking the time to prepare and plan in order to enjoy a safe summer pool season.
