Ifs beginning to look
a lot like Christmas,
as more than 100
Christmas-themed
floats took to
Marion Avenue and U.S.
Highway 90 Monday'
evening in the annual
Christmas Parade.
For Lake'City's Kerri
Dahlgren, her first experi-
ence at Lake City's festive
event was enjoyable.
"It was great," she said.
"It had a lot of entries."
The theme for Monday
night's parade was
"Christmas Memories."
Winners for best inter--
pretation of the parade's
theme will be chosen in
two categories: nonprofit
and commercial. Parade,
officials said winners will
be announced today.
Dahlgren came to the .
parade because her son,
Kyle, 6, loves Christmas
lights, she said. He said he
also enjoyed the parade,
especially the Polar
Express with Santa.
"It's a nice fun holiday
tradition and a nice family
activity" Dahlgren said.
Community participation
was strong in the parade,
said Victoria Shaw of Lake
City. Most of the floats
showcased a reason to cel-
ebrate Christmas.
"Everyone did a great

Council debates

charter review,

district boundaries


Mandates include'
10 year review of
charter.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
The City of Lake City
Council could review its
charter and district bound-
aries next year.
City Manger Wendell
Johnson presented charter
mandates to council at. its
regular meeting Monday in
City Hall.
One requires a 10 year
review of the" charter, he
said.
A charter board has to be
appointed to carry out ,that
process.
A board was assembled
in 2000 and came up with
several amendments,
which were voted on in a
2002 referendum, Johnson
said. Another board was
appointed in 2007, but no
action was taken at that
time.
Also the council is sup-
posed to review district
boundaries every five years,
Johnson said.


"That's coming up next
year," he said.


The council

advised by
the super-
visor of
elections
to wait
until the
county,
c o m -
pletes its


redistricting . because
it is costly, said Mayor
Stephen Witt.
'The boundaries are out
of whack pretty good," he
said.
The city is required to
review the boundaries by
October 2010, Johnson
said.
Council was made
aware of both mandates on
Monday to make sure it
is in compliance with the
charter, Johnson said. If any
changes were needed to be
voted on for the charter or
boundaries, the next gener-
al election is in November
2010.
The next council meeting
is at 7 p.m. Dec. 21 at City
Hall.

TAMPA - Zikerria
Bellamdy, 17, a transgender
teen in Orlando has filed a
discrimination complaint
against a McDonald's res-
taurant whose managers
refused to interview her
for a job.
� Bellamy claims two
McDonald's managers
refused to interview her
after she applied for a job.
And she says one of them
later left a voicemail mes-
sage that included a gay
slur.
Bellamy is male but says
she has been living as a

JACKSONVILLE - A
Jacksonville pizza delivery

On Thursday a driver had
a gun thrust in his stom-
ach, but wasn't shot.
The driver killed Friday
night wasn't immediately
identified. Police were still
searching for the men who
lured her there and shot
her in the chest, just steps

Second annual

Blank-Fest heats

up on Dec. 19


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@iakecityreporter.com
-For many homeless,
lower temperatures have
to be endured without any
warmth. The second annu-
al Lake City Blank-Fest is
looking to help warm up
some nights.
Blank-Fest is scheduled
to take place at 3 p.m. Dec.
19 at RockStar Lounge, 723
E. Duval Street.
Blank-Fest is an annual
benefit concert, which rais-
es blankets for the home-
less. It began in Nyack, N.Y.
in 1997 and has spread to
Florida, other states and
even overseas.
The Blank-Fest's stated
theme is, "It's about the
homeless. Nothing more,
nothing less."
Local bands perform at
the event and admission is
only a new or gently used
blanket. This is the second
year for Blank-Fest in Lake
City.
"When people think of
Florida, they don't think it
gets very cold," said Jami
Kurtz, even organizer. "It's
sad."
Kurtz learned of the
event from a friend who
started the original Blank-
Fest, she said. She tossed
around the idea of starting
one here.


"Last year I decided it
was the perfect opportunity
to start it, especially with
the homeless shelter clos-
ing,"
The event collected 156
blanks in its first year,
Kurtz said. The goal is to
collect as many as possible
this year. The blankets are
donated to United Way.
There were approximate-
ly 1,089 homeless people in
Columbia and surrounding
counties as of January 2009,
which is 300 more than last
year, Kurtz said. The num-
bers are based on census
data from United Way.
"I didn't realize until I got
involved just how big the
problem was," she said.
Six bands from Lake City,
Gainesville, Jacksonville will
perform at Blanket Fest:
Swamp Kat, Alabama Pie
Cookoff, Gainesville Bullet
Band, Krazy Horse, Margo
West and Sterling Silva.
Kurtz said most of the
bands are southern rock.
There also will be raffles
between performances for
gift certificates to Moe's,
Cedar River Seafood and
Brooklyn Boys.
Blank-Fest is about hav-
ing fun but also helping for
a good cause, Kurtz said. '
"A blanket is such a
simple thing," she said.
"Everybody has one."

office had mentioned the
drugs in a report.
"That has to lead to the
question as to how many
other times she has 'tossed
dope' that we don't know
about and what her reason
was for it then," Jarvis said.
"She destroyed the evi-
dence to prevent the pro-
bation office and the state
attorney from enhancing
the pending violation of
,probation with the new
.criminal charge. That is
not and has never been


within the authority of a
police officer. One could
label it as obstruction of
justice."
Although Brown deliv-
ered the suspect to jail on
the violation of probation
charge, reports indicate
there is no record of any
drug charge or what was
done with the drugs.
Brown worked as a Lake
City Police.Departmentoffi-
cer for more than a year,
from March 24, 2008, to
Aug. 31, 2009.

'Cash for

caulkers'

no seal for

joblessness

Despite Columbia

percent unemploy-
ment rate - a
number almost
doubled from a year ago -
there was a welcome if surpris-
ing drop in the jobless figures
released Friday. The national
unemployment rate fell from
10.2 percent to 10 percent last
month, achingly close to the
single-digit mark, as employers\
cut the fewest jobs since the
recession began.
As Bloomberg News noted,
Almost half of the 7.2 mil-
lion jobs lost have been since
Obama took office. The so-
called underemployment rate
- workers vwho can't get full-
-time jobs or have quit looking
-- is still bad, 17.2 percent, but
that, too, is down, from 17.5
percent. And the average time
out of work is more than 28
weeks, the longest since the
government started keeping
. those records in 1948.
The jobs summit mainly
-showed that high-level busi-
S-ness, labor and government
-leaders are worried about job
creation, but the likely outcome
is a grab bag of relatively small-
- bore proposals - tax credits
for new hires, weatherization
programs, so-called "cash for
caulkers" and small-business
investment incentives.
With Friday's figures, there
was cause for cautious opti-
mism - and hope that Florida,
with a staggering 11.2 percent
jobless rate, will begin to follow
the national trend.
The average work week and
average pay are up slightly
nationally, and revised figures
for September and October
found 159,000 fewer jobs lost
than first reported. And econo-
� mists say that after 23 straight
- months of job losses, the
- economy is close to the point,
probably in the next quarter,
where employers will have to
start hiring.
Regardless of what the other
economic indicators say, the
recession won't truly be over
until they do.

Bernanke will be approved anyway


Federal Reserve
Board Chairman
Ben Bernanke's
appearance before
the Senate Banking
Committee was a chance for
the senators to vent, and the
lawmakers did. In battling the
economic slump, the nation's
central banker was variously
accused of doing too little, doing
too much and, in any case,
doing the wrong thing.
Bernanke plausibly argued
that perhaps not everything he
did was right, but in sum his
actions prevented the Great
Recession from turning into
another Great Depression. And,
in the end, most of the commit-
tee agreed.
Bernanke's current term
ends Jan. 31. The committee
was holding a hearing on his
nomination to a second four-
year term leading the Fed.
Congress is also considering a
number of measures that would
curb the independent Fed's
power and, in the case of regu-
lating the banking system, strip


LETTERS TO

Reimbursements
harm health care
To the Editor:
I am a board-certified cardiol-
ogist who has been practicing in
Lake City for the past six years
and in Gainesville for the past
13 years. I am proud of the fact
that my profession has reduced
cardiovascular mortality (the
No. 1 killer. of Americans) by
more than 30 percent in the last
decade.
Unfortunately, the ability to
offer cardiovascular services to
Medicare patients will drasti-
cally change on Jan. 1 when
the Obama administration's
2010 Medicare Physician Fee
Schedule takes effect. This
fee schedule sets the payment
amounts to physicians for ser-
vices rendered to Medicare
patients.
The payments for many car-
diovascular procedures and
diagnostic tests are set to be
reduced by as much as 50 per-
cent. The American College of
Cardiology believes the meth-
odology used to determine the
new payment schedule was
based on faulty data. Despite
numerous requests, the data
has not been made public for
independent review further
decreasing the public transpar-
ency of the Obama administra-
tion.
These drastic cuts will result
in a reduction of services
that we currently provide to
Medicare patients in our office.
Many of these services will
have to be done in more expen-
sive hospital settings. This will
lead to additional expenses to


Dale McFeatters

it of that power altogether.
These are sensitive issues
because much of the foreign
confidence in the U.S. economic
system is because the central
bank is independent and, com-
pared to other independent
banks, relatively open, trans-
parent.and immune to political
pressure.
During his hearing, Bernanke
indicated that he had learned
from the economy's near-death
experience last year and prom-
ised that he would move faster
and more firmly to head off
financial bubbles. But not all
the senators were persuaded.
From the right, Republican Jim
Bunning of Kentucky called


THE EDITOR

the Medicare system, as well as
dramatically increase Medicare
patient out-of-pocket costs due
to higher co-pays.
Monday, I will be traveled to
Washington, D.C., with many
other members of the American
College of Cardiology to urge
Congress and the White House
to stop the implementation of
the new fee schedule. If you
value access to cardiovascular
services for you and your loved
ones, I urge you to contact the
Obama administration, your
representatives and senators.
Insist they stop this government
method of rationing health care.
If this approach to cardiovascu-
lar care represents President
Barack Obama's idea of reform,
we all have much to worry
about.

Climate change
timetable wont wait
To the Editor:
Seth Borenstein, AP Science
Writer, reports that a major
focus of the Copenhagen talks
will be adapting to climate
change. Realizing' that the
rate of change is rapidly accel-
erating, projects to protect
infrastructure are underway
in Boston, Chicago, New York
City, California and Alaska as
well as various European and
Asian countries.
"Some islands, such as the
Maldives, and some coastal cit-
ies will not be able to survive,"
according to a senior fellow at
the International Institute for
Environment and Development.


Bernanke "the definition of a
moral hazard," deemed his ten-
ure as chairman a failure and
pledged to "do everything I can
to stop your nomination and
drag out this process as long as
I can."
Independent Bernie Sanders
of Vermont, who is not on the
committee but is a fierce critic
of the Fed's bailouts, vowed to
use a tactic called a "hold" so
that Bernanke would need 60
votes for confirmation instead
of a simple majority of 51.
Bernanke's critics have made
their point and now should drop
it. It is generally agreed on
Capitol Hill that the chairman
will be easily confirmed to a sec-
ond term.
Delaying that vote will only
spread uncertainty in the finan-
cial sector here and abroad, and
uncertainty at this delicate junc-
ture is not something we really
need.

* Dale McFeatters is editorial
writer for Scripps Howard News
Service.


Cost estimates range as high
as $6 trillion a year worldwide
for the next 200 years. Adapting
now could save one third of
that.
This problem has its own
timetable and will not wait.
Added to our current economic
situation, I begin to realize the
complexity of the challenges
facing our nation. Our future
will be impacted as political,
economic and environmental
pressures combine across the
globe. Now I see how important
it is to control rising health care
costs, to educate our workforce
in the aftermath of lost manufac-
turing jobs and to end the fight-
ing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The recent economic growth,
stock market recovery, and
job loss declines are positive
signs. Now unemployment is
beginning to fall, and if hous-
ing prices continue to rise it's
a strong indication that the
administration's policies are
working. Deficits and debt will,
become a smaller percentage of
GDP as our economy recovers.
Although politically unpopu-
lar, I'm beginning to think our
president has the intelligence
and foresight to recognize the
threats to our nation and the
courage to do something about
them in the face of opposition.
As the puzzle pieces fall into
place, they picture security, not
socialism. Our grandparents
survived the Great Depression.
Down the road, our kids will
benefit from this difficult tran-
sition if we have the fortitude
they had back then.

No room


to wiggle

T- he London Times

published a. photo
of celebrity actor
turned environ-
mentalist John Travolta wav-
ing a flag emblazoned with
the words "going green," as
he leaned out of the window
of one his five private jets.
Megastar Tom Cruise, another

has five planes.
After former vice president
Al Gore began his campaign
against global warming, urging
Americans to cut their electric-
ity use, the independent, non-
profit, nonpartisan Tennessee
Center for Policy Research cal-
culated that Gore's Tennessee
mansion in one year used 20
times the electricity of the
average U.S. house, topping
18,000 kilowatt hours a month.
The group said that even after
the release of Gore's movie,
"An Inconvenient Truth," for
which he won an Oscar, his
electric and natural gas bills
were almost $2,500 a month.
At the United Nations
Copenhagen conference on cli-
mate change that starts today,
16,500 people are expected
to fly to Denmark from 192
countries. President Obama,
with his huge entourage, is
expected. to attend. Many lead-
ers and celebrities will arrive
in private jets, spewing tons of
carbon into the atmosphere, as
they prepare to tout the dangdr
of adding more carbon to the
atmosphere.
We are still reeling from the
"climategate" scandal, involv-
ing purloined e-mails from
British scientists convinced
climate change is a serious
world disaster in the making.
Nonetheless, they were plot-
ting to "hide" inconvenient
data indicating anomalies in
their scenario of a warming
earth.
All this maddening do-as-I-
say, not-as-I-do hypocrisy on
both sides comes as we non-
scientists who will bear the
brunt of curbs on carbon are
trying to figure out where the
truth lies in the fight between
two scientific camps.
The outlook for a signed,
sealed, delivered agreement
setting specific actions out of
Copenhagen seems dismal,
no matter how much hot air is
expended.
But what would be troubling
is if the Copenhagen conclave
concludes with the world still
deeply divided over what the '
facts are. And despite the
good science that has been
done showing that humans
are, in fact, contributing to
climate change that will cer-
tainly have dramatic and dire
results for millions of people,
there is a good possibility that
Copenhagen will result in no
more clarification at all.
In other words, if after
Copenhagen, the naysayers
are just as adamant that there
is no need to be alarmed and
the advocates just as persis-
tent in arguing there must be
no delay in putting in place
costly curbs on carbon dioxide
regardless of the economic
pain, the Denmark meeting
will be a failure.
Despite the desire by mil-
lions that we do the right
thing for the planet and our
great-grandchildren, it seems
as though the excessive pas-
sions of both groups will come
together to impede the move
to a universal understanding
of how much damage we have
done to our fragile world and
what we have to do to stop it.

Flight


.into


space,


$200K
By ALICIA CHANG
� AP Science Writer

MOJAVE, Calif. - The
sleek, bullet-shaped space-
craft is about the size of a,
large business jet - with
wide windows and seats for
six well-heeled passengers
to take a ride into space.
It's billed as the world's
first commercial spaceship,
designed to be carried aloft
by an exotic jet before firing
its rocket engine to climb
beyond the Earth's atmo-
sphere.
On Monday, Virgin
Galactic took the cloak off
SpaceShipTwo, which had
been under secret develop-
ment for two years. The com-
pany plans to sell suborbital
space rides for $200,000 a
ticket, offering passengers 2
1/2-hour flights that include
about five minutes of weight-
lessness.
"We want this program
to be a whole new begin-
ning in a commercial
era of space travel," said
Virgin Galactic founder Sir
Richard Branson, who part-
nered with famed aviation
designer Burt Rutan on the
venture,
The' British billion-
aire hopes to begin pas-
senger flights out of New
Mexico sometime in 2011
after a series of .rigorous
safety tests. Branson said
he, his family and Rutan
will be the first to fly on
SpaceShipTwo.
SpaceShipTwo's debut
marks the first public
appearance of a commercial
passenger spacecraft. The
white, stubby-winged space-
ship sat in a Mojave Desert
hangar, where it had been
attached to the jet that will
-carry it to 'launch altitude. '

FORT WHITE -
Columbia High basketball
began to take command in
the second quarter and went
on to a 68-41 win at Fort

Alex Gilmer hit a trey
from the corner at. the .end
of the first quarter to cut
Columbia's lead to 14-13.
The Tigers started the
second quarter on an 8-2

gled to six points.
Dexter Dye scored nine
of his game-high 16 points
in the third quarter, as
Columbia pushed the lead
to 56-30 by the end of the
period.
"We played well in spurts
and we did a much better
job on defense in the second
half," CHS head coach Trey
Hosford said. "We executed
a lot better iL the second

NEW YORK - Tim
Tebow added another
Heisman first to his long
list of accomplishments just
by being selected a finalist
for this year's trophy.
Tebow became the first
player to be invited to the
Heisman Trophy presenta-
tion ceremony three times
when the Florida quarter-
back - along with Colt
McCoy, Mark Ingram, Toby
Gerhart and Ndamukong


take


Suh - was named a final-
ist Monday for college
football's most prestigious
player of the year award.
"Having the chance
to go back to New York
means a lot to me," Tebow
said in a statement. "It is a
special honor but it wouldn't
be possible for me to have
this opportunity without my
teammates aqd coaches."
The Heisman Trophy
will be awarded Saturday
in Manhattan. The presen-
tation ceremony has been
televised since 1981 and
since 1982 at least three
players have been invited
to attend.
The last time as many as
five players ,were invited, to


New York was 2004, when
USC quarterback Matt-
Leinart won the award.
Tebow, who was the
'first sophomore to Win:
the Heisman in 2007, is:.
trying to become the,
second two-time Heisman
winner, joining Ohio State's
Archie Griffin. Tebow
finished third in the voting
last year, while getting the
most first-place votes.
He's also the first player
to finish in the top five of
the Heisman voting three
times since Georgia tail-
back Herschel Walker did
it in the early.1980s.

Herzog, Harvey elected

to Baseball Hall of Fame ,

Veterans select
St. Louis manager,
long-time umpire.
By BEN WALKER
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS -
Manager Whitey Herzog
and umpire Doug Harvey
got the call Monday,
elected to the baseball Hall
of Fame by the Veterans
Committee.
Herzog and Harvey
missed by one vote in
their previous tries. This
time, they easily drew
enough support to reach
Cooperstown.
"I don't think I would've
had my heart broken if I'd
missed by another vote or
two. But I'm damn happy
it's over," Herzog said at
Busch Stadium.
"It was just in the last
few years when I was only
missing by a few votes
that I thought, maybe I do
deserve it," he said.
Among those who came
close this year was former


"(Herzog) gave
his entire life to
the game."
-Tom Lasorda,
Veterans committee member

players' union head Marvin
Miller. He was on a sepa-
rate slate for executives and
officials, and fell two votes
short.
Herzog was a fixture in
major league dugouts for
two decades. He won the
1982 World Series and three
NL pennants with the St.
Louis Cardinals and three
division titles with Kansas
City. He became the 19th
manager to make the hall.
"I think he was one of the
guys who started manag-
ers looking at doing more
creative things," said Hall
of Fame shortstop Ozzie
,Smith, one of Herzog's star
players. "You'd see him take
a relief pitcher and put him
in right field."
Candidates needed 12
votes (75 percent) to make
it, and Herzog got 14 in


voting Sunday at the base-
ball winter meetings.
Results were announced
Monday.
Herzog started manag-
ing in 1973 with Texas and
compiled a .532 career win-
ning percentage.
"He gave his entire life
to the, game," said Hall
of Fame manager Tom
Lasorda, another Veterans
panel member. "When he
didn't make it last year, I
was very, very down. This
year, everyone understood
he belonged there."
Harvey umpired in the
National League for 31
seasons before retiring in
199L. He worked five World
Series and six All-Star
games, and handled more
than 4,600 games overall.
The 79-year-old Harvey
also came close two years
ago. He was picked on 15
of 16 ballots this time, and
became the ninth umpire in
the Hall.

I woke up this morning and

the first time exactly what
that means," Harvey said in
a statement.
"I accept this election
... on behalf of all umpires
from the minor leagues to
the major leagues and for
those who umpire at every
level," he said.
Harvey has been in frail
health since being diagnosed
with oral cancer in 1997.
Harvey was distinguished
by his shock of silver hair,
and players often called him
"God" in tribute to his work.
He helped bring a new style
to umpiring, too. Rather
than make emphatic, instant
calls, as was the norm when
he began in 1962, he would
take a split-second to get a
snapshot of the play in his
mind.
"He. had the players'
respect. He had the pitch-
ers' respect - most of the
time," Lasorda said.
"Sometime you see
umpires and you say that
guy's. not giving his best,
he's getting lackadaisical.
Not him," he said.

the national championship
race.
The loss likelydamaged
Tebow's chances at a sec-
ond Heisman, too. He has
passed for 2,413 yards and
rushed for 859 yards this
year.
Like Tebow, McCoy also
returned for his senior sea-
son to make a champion-
ship run. He has Texas a
victory away from its first
national title since 2005,
but his numbers also have
fallen off compared to '08.
McCoy, has passed for
3,512 yards with 27 touch-
downs and 12 intercep-
tions. He also nearly threw
away the Longhorns'
national championship
hopes on the second-to-last
play of the Nebraska game,
coming within a second of
letting the clock run out
before Texas could attempt
the winning field goal in a
13-12 victory.
McCoy could become
the first player to win the
Heisman the season after
finishing second since
Walker did it In 1982.

seems to be Ingram.

Gerhart.
Ingram could become
Alabama's first Heisman
Trophy winner. He gave his
Heisman campaign a late
boost by running for, 113
yards and scoring three
touchdowns in the SEC title
game against Florida.
"I'm looking forward
to the experience and
appreciate the opportunity~
,to represent our team at
the Heisman cereniony,"
Ingram said in a statement
Gerhart also ended his
season with a flourish, run-
ning for 205 yards and three
touchdowns and throwing
a touchdown pass in a vic-
tory against Notre Dame.
"I am most pleased that
my efforts along with those
of so many others this year
have put Stanford football
back on the national map,"
Gerhart said.
Nobody finished stron-
ger than Suh, who put
together one of the most
dominant defensive games
in recent college football
history in Nebraska's near-
upset of Texas.
"It is good to see that
the Heisman voters have
recognized the true impact
a dominant defensive line-
man like Suh can have on
a football game," Nebraska
coach Bo Pelini said.

The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls.
Team percentages are derived by dividing a team's actual voting points by a maximum 2850 possible points in the Harris Interactive
Poll and 1475 possible points in the USAToday Coaches Poll.
Six computer rankings calculated in inverse points order (25 for No. I, 24 for No. 2, etc.) are used to. determine the overall
computer component.The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided by 100
(the maximum possible points) to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage.The six computer ranking providers are Anderson &
Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule
strength in its formula.

Prestigious Medical Journal Reveals Brain Oxygen-Boosting Nutrient Breakthrough




Regain 10-15 Years of



Lost Memory Power


New pill can help sharpen focus, clear away "brain


fog" erase up to 15 years of lost memory power!


If you're one of the millions
concerned or even embar-
rassed by your fading focus or
memory...forgetting names,
important dates or to-do
items, getting words stuck on
the tip of your tongue or per-
haps having one too many se-
nior moments - then here's
some great news!

Dramatic Reversal of

Memory Loss

The peer reviewed Medical
Journal, JANA, recently an-
nounced astounding results af-
ter the testing of a new "Memo-
ry Pill" called Procera AVH that
can help restore as much as 10
to 15 years of mental decline,
ost memory recall speed and
even improve your mood in just
30 days or less.

Medical Journal states: "The
data provides evidence that this
compound improves a range of
cognitive variables... and appears
to improve mental clarity and
mental energy and repair mood
disturbances... [with] speed of
memory retrieval [improvement]
that suggests functioning at ap-
proximately 10 or more years
younger." Stough, C., Phd,
JANA 2009

It has been shown to
literally "Wake Up" a

tired, sluggish brain.
"This Landmark Clinical Trial
scientifically validated over 30
years of research completed on
the formula's ingredients" says
U.S. clinical brain research sci-
entist and best-selling author
of "20/20 Brainpower", Joshua
Reynolds.
Joshua
Reynolds,
Clinical
Researcher
and Author
featured on
the TV Program
The Mental
Edge.

Over the course of many years
of testing and refining his natu-
ral fast-acting formula, Reynolds
narrowed his search down to
three of Mother Nature's most
effective brain energy nutri-
ents in precise, clinical doses.
He calls these three ingredients
the "three Miracle Memory
Molecules"!

Is YOUR Brain Starved of

Precious Oxygen?

After analyzing over a
MILLION brains, Reynolds
identified the main reasons our
brains seem to age faster than
our bodies.

His research concludes "It's a
simple concept; your aging brain
can't quite catch its breath. Once
you reach 50, you may have
already lost up to HALF your
brain . power as your brain
cells are virtually gasping for
oxygen."


How Procera AVH Works
1. Oxygenates your brain
cells - for increased
mental energy.
2. Restores your depleted
neurotransmitters -
essential for better focus,
learning & recall.
3. Protects against damag-
ing environmental toxins
- fighting free radicals
that can ravage your brain.


Imagine Living Life
Sharp & Focused!
Satisfied Procera AVH
customers across the country
report what Clinical Studies
have shown:

* Better Memory and
Faster Recall

* Improved Concentration
and Mental Clarity

* Less Mental Fatigue and
Confusion

* Better Mood

Reynolds further reveals in
his medically acclaimed book,
"20/20 Brainpower", that our
brains are experiencing an


Improve Memory and
Focus - Without A
Prescription

Customer service centers and
Internet sites are flooded with
stories of life-changing results.
Less mental "fog" and more
clarity means names, dates and
important matters are more
quickly remembered... conver-
sations are' easier to follow...
and concentration improves...
just like when we were young.

"Since taking Procera I've noticed
a huge difference in my mental
clarity and focus... my short term
memory is better and my recall of
facts is quicker."
says Eric L, CA


Memory pill ingredient "...lights up aging brains like a
Christmas tree! 100% Energizing!"


Increased oxygen from one of Procera AVH's natural ingredients - Vinpocetine.


energy crisis, "and with each
passing birthday less and less
oxygen and fewer brain nutri-
ents called neurotransmitters
get to your energy starved brain
cells which can cause memory
loss, mental fatigue, mental fog
and low energy".

Medical research confirms
that severely depleted sup-
plies of neurotransmitters and
oxygen can dull your cognitive
powers, sabotaging your abil-
ity to concentrate, remember
things and even make the sim-
plest decisions.

Reynolds confirms,
"Procera AVH may fix all of
that by helping your brain get
the oxygen and vital nutrients
it needs to be sharp and clear -
throughout the day."

Many people who have strug-
gled with forgetfulness and poor
concentration say they notice
an "almost immediate" effect.

Refuel and Recharge

Your Brain Quickly!

Ingredients in Procera AVH
were shown to wake up your
brain by increasing circulation
in the brain, flooding energy-
starved cells with fresh supplies
of invigorating oxygen and
vital neurotransmitters. And,
"just like after a good exercise
session, it gets you feeling su-
per refreshed and reenergized.
Procera AVH gets those
neurons fired up again!" says
Reynolds.

"It's Like Putting On A
Pair of Reading Glasses
and Seeing Clearly
Again !"

"My brain was able to find words
in a flash... "
commented Barbara D, FL

"Idefinitely have more energy and
focus, and process things at an in-
creased speed than before Procera

"I felt solid, bright, alive, and
energetic, clear and focused... "j

her own agenda and opin-
ions. Your originality and
determination will win the
approval of a potential part-
ner. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Someone at work

est in you. Be careful not to

ey to be made. ****
SAGHITARIUS (Nov.

cision you .make that will
alter your personal life. A
partnership is apparent and
can help you gain respect
in your community as well

A skill you have can make
extra cash and boost your
confidence. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-

of knowledge may be what
stands between you and a
big opportunity. Don't cut
corners when it comes to

CLASSIC PEANUTS


DEAR ABBY: I have
a good friend whose hus-
band is isolating her from
family and friends. He's
a counselor, and he uses
his training as a psycholo-
gist to convince her that
none of her friends are to
be trusted. He twists any-
thing we do or say to keep
her at a distance from us.
He tells her she's a hor-
rible mother and a terrible
person in general, and she
believes him. I think she
has been brainwashed.
He also hits on other
women regularly, myself
included. When I tried to
tell my friend what he did,
she refused to believe me
because he already told
her his version of the sto-
ry and made it look like it
was my fault.
Is there any way to
help a woman who is be-
ing held mentally captive
by her husband? - DIS-
TRAUGHT FRIEND
DEAR DIS-
TRAUGHT: One way
to begin would be to ap-
proach her as a group and
tell her you are all con-
cerned and that you care
about her. Tell her often
that you are there for her
and always will be, and


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorabby.com
that you know she's a ter-
rific person and a wonder-
ful,' caring parent. Point
out that only two people in
the world think otherwise,
and that's her husband
and her. And repeat that
you're afraid she's being,
verbally and emotionally
abused until she finally
hears you.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a 43-
year-old woman who has
never been married. My
boyfriend, "Phil" - with
whom I share a wonder-
ful relationship - has been
divorced three times and
has made it clear he does
not want to marry again.
We're in the process of
buying a home together,
and I cannot let go of the
hope that one day we'll
live in it as husband and
wife. It has always been
my dream to find that one
"right" person and settle
down. In my eyes, Phil is
that special person. I feel
