by its coordinators, with approxi-,

p.m., with many holding drawings
for door prizes.

'The event was organized ex-
tremely well," Imbrunone said.
"Everybody had a wonderful time
and we were able to spotlight just
our local businesses."
Participants enjoyed a great vari-
ety of different songs provided by
the band 19 South, while others got
a good laugh from the "dress your
pet'. contest.
The first-place winner in the pet
contest was Emma, dressed as a
clown and owned by Gaige Win-
Second place went to Brie,
dressed like a rock star and owned
by Misdra Franklin.
And third place went to Tawoda,
dressed in a Geisha robe and
owned by FranHunt ...
As the winners were announced,
Brie, the rock star, attracted much
attention, lying on her back in
Franklin's arms as if she had either
passed out due to winning, or had
partied too hard before hand.
Monetary donations for the event
were provided by Doug Wainright,
of Southern Biologics; Steve
Walker of Steve Walker Realty;
Dottie Miller of Bush Baby; Pam
and' Barry Kelly of Coldwell
Banker Kelly & Kelly Properties;

and Tommy Surles of State Farm
The donations went to pay for the

Imbrunone said the Hometown
Get Down will be a monthly event,
. with a different theme to used for
each month.
"The next one will be at either the,
* end of October or at the beginning
of November," Imbrunone said..
"We are making plans already." .
She added that some of the
themes to come will include the.
featuring of local artists and local
craft items.
Presently, the coordinators are
seeking volunteers for the next
event. They are also looking for lo-
cal musicians willing to play at the
get downs, as it's planned that the
band will change for every event.

Senior Staff Writer

Two county juveniles and a Talla-
hassee man have been charged with

Responding officers from the
MPD heard from witnesses that
three masked men had robbed the
store at gunpoint and with a wooden
tool handle, taking an undisclosed
amount of money.
I Investigators soon developed the
identity of the three suspects, based

on the descriptions provided by the
witnesses, and began looking for the-
individuals with the assistance of
deputies from the Sheriffs Depart-
Officers finally located the three
suspects, along with the cash taken
from the store, at one of the juve-
nile's residence in the north end of
the county.
Subsequently, officers also recov-
ered the masks and the weapons
used in the robbery. The gun, it
turns out, was a pellet rifle.

Her experience includes substi-

Setzer became interested in a
teaching career in her senior year at
Troy. "My mom became a substi-

with high school kids, so I figured
rather than getting into marketing, I
wanted to be a teacher," said
She added that when she retired
last year, she missed teaching and
heard about the job availability
here, was offered the job and took

She finds her biggest challenge in
teaching to be getting students to
realize that they can succeed at
anything that they want to try.
"A lot of them seem to hesitate
at things, ".said Setzer. "It's won-

Her biggest frustration, is "the

New Traffic Laws intended

To Promote Highway Safety

The Florida Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehicles and
the Florida Highway Patrol remind
drivers that several new and revised
traffic laws went into effect Oct. 1.
Among the new laws:
The base fine (not including
court costs, which vary from county
to county) for running a red light is
now increased to $125 (from $60),
and upon conviction will result in
four points being added on the
driver's record
If a driver has his or her license
revoked for a conviction of driving
under the influence and did not meet
the financial responsibility require-
ments at the time of the offense, the
r.river must purchase and maintain a


six-month noncancelable liability
Additionally, if the driver owns a
vehicle, he or she must obtain a six-
month registration as a condition of
Racing on Florida's' highways
will become a first-degree misde-
meanor. Vehicles used to race may
be impounded for a period of 10
business days. Vehicles in violation
with five years of a previous convic-
tion may be seized and forfeited.
The new laws are in addition to
the primary seat belt law for drivers
under 21 that went into effect July 1,
"These changes to the laws are de-

signed to promote highway safe
said Fred Dickinson, executive
rector of the Department of H
way Safety and Motor Vehic
"Tragically, too many persons c
tinue to die as a result of tra
crashes. We encourage drivers
obey all traffic laws, don't drink
drive, and buckle up."
Added Colonel Chris Knight,
rector, of the Florida High'
Patrol: "Safety on Florida's hi
ways is paramount in our mission
enforce all laws. Drivers must
aware of the laws."

Effort Gets Teens

Ready For Road

Parents hold the keys when it
comes to their teens' driving safety.
In fact, research shows that when
parents take an active role in their
teens' driving education and set
driving guidelines, they can reduce
their teens' chances of being in a
crash by up to one-third.,
According to government
statistics, traffic crashes remain the
No. I killer of teens.
In 2003, teen drivers were'in-
volved in more than 1.7 million ve-
Shicle crashes, injuring nearly
1'400,000 teens and killing nearly
5,000. And teen traffic deaths peak
;in the summer, when teens spend
more time on the road than they do
During the school year.
In addition, teens drive more at,
night and often travel with groups of
'teens further leading to
Chrysler Group has resources
i ,available to help. They've created
Road Ready Teens, a home-based
'program for both parents and teens.
The initiative helps parents ease
" their teens into driving, while gradu-
;ally exposing and educating them
about the risks they face on the road.
' "Chrysler Group is urging parents
to pay close attention to their teens'
driving safety, especially in these
high-risk summer months," said Deb
"Morrissett, Vice President Safety
'and Regulatory Affairs, Chrysler
"Road Ready Teens was designed

to give parents step-by-step guide-.
lines to help protect their teens be-
hind the wheel. If parents and teens
follow these steps, tens of thousands
of teen crashes could be prevented
each and every year."
The program offers a Parent's
Guide to encourage dialogue be-
tween the parent and teen, as well as
an innovative teen driving safety
video game, StreetWise. StreetWise
is designed to increase teens' aware-
ness and ,understanding of driving
risks in a fun and challenging way.
The Road Ready Teens Parent's
Guide includes simple tips and tools
that parents need to help keep their
teen drivers safe, such as:
Limit the number of passengers
with whom your teen drives.
Limit distractions while driving,
such as cell phone use and loud mu-
Remind your teen to take extra
care when driving at night; most
teen crashes occur after dark.
Create 'a Parent-Teen 'Road
Rules Contract based on recommen-
dations from leading safety experts.
Road Ready Teens' materials, in-
cluding StreetWise and the Parent's
Guide, are available in English and
Spanish free of charge at
The site also links parents to state
teen driving laws and licensing in-
formation and other safety

Opinion & Comment

Healthy Eating is Not Simple Matter

Alright, let's talk about the impor-
tant stuff like lycopene, capsaicin,
and flavanoids.
Whaddya mean you don't know
what they mean?
Truth is, I don't know much about
them either.
I read a column about healthy eat-
ing and learned these were phyto-
chemicals in fruits and vegetables
that are good for our bodies.
Frankly, I get so confused about
what it is we're supposed to eat.
About the time I think I've got it
figured out, another study comes out
and says something like "It's OK to
eat eggs now."
It wasn't too terribly long ago that
we were told eggs are loaded with
cholesterol' and we should eat them
I happen to like eggs. -AlwayS,
have. But, I grudgingly began using!
egg substitutes in the interest of
lower cholesterol.
So you can see why I was ripped
when the study came out and said
now eggs are OK. .




-Roll O'Cit/w

I'm more than a. little peeved
about olive oil too.
I read reports that said olive oil is
not good so I cut that out. The
health column I read recently said
some olive oil is good as it can
lower LDL cholesterol.
*' R'mi,-t1- L I ili. -'day' wlien .i i ate
what you wanted and that was it? I
remember them too.
Now' if I eat a pizza I'm guilt-
Cheese is a no no. Ice cream is a
memory. Steaks are terribly infre-

quent. And the list goes on.
Having a meal has become an ad-
Fruits and vegetables are the in
foods now.
I hate to be the one to disagree
with the fruits- ind egetable folks,
but a plate: of beans is not nearlyas'
tasty as a good stew, or fried
Oh, but it is more healthy you
say? Yeah, dam it.
My daughter Jamie studied fitness
in college and is a personal trainer.

She keeps me posted on what I'm
supposed to eat.
So far I've concluded the good
stuff is bad for me while the stuff
that tastes like paper is good for me.
To tell you the truth, I am growing
weary of all this "you can't eat this,
you can't eat that" business.
To make matters worse, I eat my
main meal of the day at noon at the
Table of Knowledge with people
who enjoy fried chicken and all the
good stuff.
Either they don't know about all
this healthy diet business or they
don't care.
What I'm waiting for now is the
next study that says all that business
that we scared you with for the past
several years is no longer operative.
-.. Eat what you 'want. Have a pizza.
Get yourself an ice cream cone.
Have some wine and cheese. Fried"
chicken is good for you.
This may never happen, but I can
hope, can't I?
Tell the truth, you'd like it too!

Girls With ADHD Overlooked

While attention deficit hyperactiy-
ity disorder (ADHD) affects about
three to seven percent of all school-
age children, many girls with
ADHD may never be diagnosed be-
cause their symptoms are often
missed by parents and teachers.
While boys tend to exhibit the
more commonly known and obvious
symptoms of ADHD, like hyperac-
tivity, girls may display other, less
outwardly visible symptoms such as
If left untreated, the symptoms of
ADHD can have a profound effect
on a 'child's life, both inside and out-
side of a classroom setting.
For Janice Lowder, a quiet, well-
behaved child, learning was always

"My husband and I hired a one-
on-one tutor to help Janice with her
studies. We also tried to help her,
and all dreaded the nightly battle of
completing a homework assignment.
Janice would get so frustrated with
her homework and the fact that she
didn't 'get it,' that she would cry,"
said her mother Beth Lowder.
"By the time Janice reached the
seventh grade, a nurse at her school
suggested we talk to a doctor. Janice
was diagnosed with ADHD and was
started on treatment,' Beth ex-
"I knew my daughter just needed
the right help," said Beth.
By the tenth grade, Janice had im-
proved from a C to a B student but

homework was still challenging.
. In. addition, she had low self-
esteem and was embarrassed to take
her medication at school. Her psy-
chiatrist prescribed an extended-
release formulation 'that enabled
Janice to take her medication once a
day at home.
With continued tutoring and medi-
cation, her grades improved.
"She came home from school one
day and said, "Mom, I'm smart."
said her mother.
A recent study presented at the
American Psychiatric Association
annual meeting showed that girls
with ADHD demonstrated signifi-
cant improvement in both behavior
and attention with medication.

"The study suggest that girls with
ADHD can benefit from medication
and that this treatment will help
them control symptoms all day
while they are in the classroom, dur-
ing after-school activities or during
homework with relatively few side
effects," said Joseph Biederman,
M.D., professor of psychiatry, Har-
vard Medical School and Chief of
Pediatric Psychopharmacology at
Massachusetts General Hospital.
"While ADHD in girls is becom-
ing more recognizable it is still often
over looked, and there is a need for
safe and effective treatments that
will allow girls to interact more ef-
fectively with other children and
adults, to concentrate in school and
to focus on finishing tasks." (NAPS)

The Howard Middle School foot--
ball team suffered a 32-12 disap-
pointing loss to the Wakulla
Riversprings Bears, last week.
Coach Willie Saffd said the rea-
son behind the loss was poor calls
made by officials. "The officiating
was terrible, the worst I've seen
since I've been coaching," said
Saffo. "Any other coach would
have said it was terrible. ,
"You can't win when you have
four touchdowns called back on
you. It's hard to play the opposing
team and the officials too," he
Saffo said the calls made calling
back the Bees touchdowns included
clipping, back blocking and others.
"One of the touchdowns that was
called back, was called by the refe-
ree in mid field who said he
stepped on the line and the referee
standing next to me at the line said
.that he didn'tsee it," said Saffo.
"If you beat me, you beat me, but
let it be a fair situation."
Saffo said the Bees played good
enough to win the game and they
were encouraged about coming out
with the win, after coming back

under the circumstances," said
Saffo. "So I don't want to single

He concluded that it was unfortu-

October is Breast Cancer Aware--
ness month and the County Health
Department joins the American
Cancer Society (ACA) stressing the
importance of early detection.
According to ACS statistics,
breast cancer is the most common
cancer diagnosed among women in
Florida ranks third in the nation
for the total number of new cases
and deaths from breast cancer.
ACS statistics say that approxi-
mately 215,990 new cases of eva-
sive breast cancer are expected to
be diagnosed in women in the US
in 2004 and about 1,450 new cases
will be diagnosed in men.
Gender and age are the most im-
portant risk factors for breast can-
cer. As a woman ages, her risk of
developing breast cancer increases.
In fact, 77 percent of women who
are diagnosed with breast cancer
are age 50 and older.
There are new breast cancer early
detection recommendations, they
include getting yearly mammo-
grams starting at the age of 40 and
continuing as long as the woman is
in good health.
Clinical breast exams should be
part of a periodic health exam,
about every three years for women
in their 20's and 30's and every
year for women 40 and older.

Women should be aware of how
their breasts, normally look and
feel, and should report any change
promptly to their health care pro-
-viders. Breast self-exam is an op-
tion for women starting in their
Women at increased risk, which
includes family history, genetic
tendency and past breast cancer,


should talk with their doctors about
the benefits and limitations of start-
ing mammography screefling ear-
lier and of having additional tests
such as ultrasound and MRI.
The Department of Health cele-
brates Oct. 21 as "National Mam-
mography Awareness Day" in
recognition of the importance of
timely detection and treatment of
breast cancer.

The Health Department will be-
offering free group diabetes classes
9-11 a.m. Oct. 22 and 29 and Nov.
5 at the public clinic on W. Wash-
ington St.
Spokesperson Bonnie Mathis said
attendance at these classes is very
important, given the Florida De-
partment of Health (FDOH) ranks
Jefferson County ranks number 13
in the state in age-adjusted deaths
related to diabetes.
The FDOH also reports that 12.4
percent of adults in the county have
diabetes, as compared with the state
average of 8.2 percent.
Mathis explained that complica-
tions from diabetes can include
blindness, amputations, nerve dam-
age, kidney disease, poor circula-
tion, and increased risk for heart
attack or stroke.
According to the American Dia-
betes Association, two out of every
three people with diabetes die from
heart disease and stroke. These
complications and increased health
risks make learning to control dia-
betes essential.

This is what it

feels like to

have asthma.

Try breathing through a
thin straw. With an asthma
attack it's a fight for every nV
breath you draw.

Asthma is a serious lung disease that can affect children
and adults at any time. An attack can be triggered by
such diverse causes as cold air, pets, tobacco smoke,
dust, and stress. The American Lung Association is
helping people control asthma so they can lead happy,
normal, active lives.
