Each Year, 5000 Children Die As A Result Of Alcoholism

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Over three million teenagers are out and out alcoholics. Al-
cohol is the most used drug in the United States, and the most
abused drug among adolescents.
Children who begin drinking at age 14 or younger have a 47
percent risk of becoming an alcoholic however, children who
do begin drinking at such a young age typically have one alco-
holic parent, which in itself creates a 40 percent chance of alco-
The average age at which youth first try alcohol is 11 years
for boys and 13 years for girls, though the vast majority of chil-

dren do not start drinking at such a young age. Most Americans
begin drinking regularly around 15.9 years of age, but, once
again, these results are only an average.
Alcoholism plays a significant role in sexual behavior, in-
cluding unwanted, unplanned, and unprotected sexual activity and
sex with multiple partners. Unprotected sexual activity, as a result
of the loss of inhibition due to alcohol, increases the risk of preg-
nancy and sexually transmitted disease.
Depression, anxiety, oppositional defiant disorder, and antiso-
cial personality disorder in people who drink heavily can be di-
rectly attributed to the consumption of and dependence on alcohol.
Each day, 5,400 children under the age of 16 begin drinking

and 1,971,000 children a year under the age of 16 begin drinking.
Alcohol is involved in the deaths of 5,000 children each year with
1,900 dying from motor vehicle crashes and 1,600 dying from
homicides and violence, and another 300 committing suicide.
The bottom line is that being an alcoholic is unhealthy for the
person drinking, and for people in their environment. Certainly,
the underage consumption of alcohol is more damaging on the still
developing brain, as well as illegal under federal law. Drinking ca-
sually in persons of age is not the problem. Alcoholism, an addic-
tion to alcohol, is a serious health problem that must not go un-
treated. Without taking action against underage drinking, and al-
coholism, people are condoning the act.

be putting a huge strain on care providers. The Health Depart-
ment doesn't have the staff to handle an influx of new patients,
while other care providers don't have the staffing or the exper-
tise to deal with even more patients.
Madison County is stretched thin, especially in the realm of
health care. Many local physicians are pushed to their limits,
sometimes seeing more than 40 patients daily. That's an aver-
age of one patient every twelve minutes.
With Allaboun's current caseload, it takes a doctor approx-
imately twelve minutes to make a diagnosis on a patient.
With the closing of Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, more
patients are added to the caseload of other Madison physicians,
ever decreasing the amount of time each patient spends with the
doctor they trust to make important diagnoses.
Many patients don't have enough money to get transporta-
tion to another city to seek healthcare. Current patients will
have to seek healthcare at their clinics.

War Stories
Here is a refrain I hear often: "Papa doesn't talk about the
war much." I have heard family members and friends say
something like this repeatedly. As the son of a war (WW II) vet-
eran, a war (Vietnam) veteran myself, and one who frequently
interviews veterans about their combat experience, I am partic-
ularly acute to this refrain.
I have my own theory as to why this is and want to take this
opportunity to explain it.
For most of us when we go off to war, we're rather young.
Both my Father and I were just 24 when bullets were whizzing
about our head. For many, this time comes even earlier in life.
Most of our days on earth, assuming we're fortunate enough to
survive the shooting, lie ahead. When young men return from
combat, they are ready to move on with their lives. Career and
family are uppermost in their minds. The past is past we are
better off or worse off as the case might be, but it is past. We
live in the now and prepare to face the future.
Even as a young military officer, I preferred not to dwell on
my war experience. Frankly, that experience was immaterial to
my current job or future promotion. There were two exceptions
to my general rule to not discuss my war stories. First if I was
with a group of veterans who had shared a similar experience, it
was appropriate to compare notes. Second if there was a par-
ticular lesson I had learned in combat which was appropriate to
the current situation, it might prove valuable to draw the paral-
lel. Except for those two situations, I preferred to put the past
behind me and move on.
Some people have interpreted my reluctance to talk about
combat in a negative light maybe I'm ashamed of something
or have repressed memories and nightmares. 'In my own-case,
nothing could be further from the truth. I'm very proud of my
service in the Vietnam War and suffer no flashbacks or mental
troubles as a result.
In fact for aviators like me, war is a relatively "clean" busi-
ness. As Earl Dennis said of his 31 B-17 combat missions in
1944, your introduction to a combat loss was usually an empty
bunk. It's different for a soldier or marine who must deal with
death in a personal, often gory way. Carroll Agner told me of
the death of his friend Robert Layne in July 1944: "We were
very close. I had to put him out of my mind and move on be-
cause there was too much fighting.stilL ahead, to,,dwell on the
past." Twenty years after the,waasCarroll,satt at his place at
the head of the dinner table, the memory of Robert crossed his
mind and he broke down for several minutes and sobbed like a
baby. For Carroll Agner, war and casualties were much more
personal than it was for me, I'm convinced.
As old warriors enter the twilight of their lives, the impor-
tance of their combat experience becomes more important to
them. It is extremely important to the veteran's family. The
grandchildren and subsequent generations will want to know ...
they need to know about granddad's contribution to the free-
doms we enjoy. Here is how I recommend you approach war
stories like this.
First, get granddad to roughly talk about the experience for
and hour or so. Once you know about the period of his service,
get into the books and research the war at that point so you
know what the historians have said. Then, go back to granddad
with your notepad and tape recorder and record the story. Based
on your research and notes from granddad's recollections, write
a story and include pictures if they are available. Make this sto-
ry part of your family history and make it a point to praise
granddad at the next family gathering.
Or you can call me and I'll
help you through the process
or take over myself if it is an
especially important war story.
I've interviewed three local
veterans -Earl Dennis, Lee
Cason, and Carroll Agner -
and enjoyed doing each of
those stories. Finding a veter-
an of Elsenborn Ridge during
the Battle of the Bulge like
Carroll was a real bonus.
Elsenborn is the equivalent of
Iwo Jima, Leyte Gulf, or Pork-
chop Hill epic battles in
American history. "
These stories deserve to be
told and recorded. The veter-
us type of an's family needs to under-
ir over stand and appreciate his con-
r in 2007. tribution to our nation's mili-
tary history. And our commu-
nity needs to read about these
exploits and appreciate them.
We have much to be proud of.
Above all, we don't need to
lose these stories to the grave.

However, if you make the right investment-related
moves, the loss of a job doesn't necessarily mean you
have lost the opportunity to achieve your important
financial goals.
Above all else, don't panic when you learn of an
impending termination. If you are going to get a sever-
ance package, you may not have to take the first offer
that comes your way; you might be able to negotiate for
more attractive terms. But even if there is no room for
negotiation, you need to make sure you get all the infor-
mation you need, such as whether the severance will be
paid at once or in stages. As severance packages may
have tax consequences, you should consult with your
tax advisor before making any decisions.
Here's another suggestion: Don't rush to collect the
money from your 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b) plan. Of
course, if your retirement plan is your main source of
savings, you may have no choice in the matter. But once
you cash out your plan, you'll no longer benefit from
tax-deferred earnings growth. Furthermore, your former
employer must withhold 20 percent from your distribu-
If you don't cash out your plan, what should you do
with it? You might be able to leave the money in your
former employer's plan. When you get your next job,
you could move the money from your old plan into a
new employer's plan, if the new plan allows such trans-
However, you can get much more flexibility by
rolling over your retirement assets into an IRA, which
provides an almost unlimited array of investment choic-
es. By making a direct rollover to an IRA, you'll avoid
the 20 percent withholding and current income taxes on
your retirement plan distribution, and you'll give your
earnings the potential to keep growing on a tax-deferred
basis. Keep in mind, though, that before you reach 59-
1/2; your IRA withdrawals will be subject to ordinary
income tax and a 10 percent penalty, unless you take
systematic distributions under Section 72(t) of. the
Internal Revenue Code. To make sure you're making the
right moves, consult with your tax and financial advi-
sors before tapping into your IRA.
After deciding what to do with your 401(k) or other
retirement plan, you might also want to adjust the other,
non-IRA investments in your portfolio. While you were
working full time, you may have established an invest-
ment mix that was based on a variety of factors, includ-
ing your goals, time horizon, risk tolerance, ability to
invest and your need for growth and income. But if you
are between jobs for an extended time period, you may
need to adjust your portfolio. A financial advisor can
help you select an appropriate investment mix. Once
you're employed again, you can readjust your portfolio
as needed.
A layoff can be difficult for you and your family.
But by thinking carefully about what to do with your
retirement plan and your investment portfolio, you can
survive this setback and stay on track toward the future
you've envisioned.

Doug Brown has a message for any-

"Take studying and academics very
seriously," he warns. "The bulk of your
life is spent outside of sports."
Brown speaks from experience. He

the tiny National Association of Inter-
collegiate Athletics (NAIA) school.
Brown's sterling career was topped
off with a trip to Kingdome in Seattle,
Wash. to play for the NAIA champi-
onship against Abilene Christian at the
end of his senior season. Unfortunately,
Southwestern Oklahoma State lost that
Before the game, Brown and his
teammates held their practices at the
Seattle Seahawks' practice facilities.
Brown said that the friendships that
were made during his time on the foot-
ball team were probably the most re-
warding aspect of his playing career,
along with the challenge of competition
to make himself a better player every

Before Brown moved to Madison,
he experienced the breakup of a mar-
"I was feeling low but I had a
friend from the team who was probably
a fourth or fifth team backup quarter-
back," he said. "My friend gave me
counsel and told me that I really need-
ed to lean on Jesus."
Brown began heeding his friend's
advice and turned his life over to
Christ. He moved to Madison to accept
a job at North Florida Community Col-

former Lynn Andrews. Lynn is the
daughter of Jenny Andrews and the late

Salmon Wellington
Puff pastry encloses flavorful salmon,
spinach and herbs in a main dish fit for
a special occasion. Wellington prepara-
tions are thought to take a great deal of
time and skill to make. However with
the time saver of purchased puff pastry,
it's a breeze. The bundles can be pre-
pared up to a week in advance and then
frozen. Just pop them in the oven when
Note: Puff pastry must be cold (but not
frozen) when placed into a hot oven in
order for the pastry to become light and
Makes: 4 servings
1 tablespoon sweet butter
1-1/2 tablespoons shallots or onion,
1/2 cup frozen spinach, defrosted
and well drained,
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon thyme or dill,
Kosher salt and cracked
black pepper
1-1/2 tablespoons crumbled feta
4 thick, skinless fillets of salmon
(about 6 ounces each)
2 packages puff pastry
(defrosted in refrigerator)
1 lightly beaten egg
1 teaspoon milk
1. Heat saut6 pan with butter over medi-
um heat. Add shallots and saute 3 to
4 minutes until softened. Reduce heat

from heat and stir in feta. Taste for
seasoning and let cool.
2. Lightly salt and pepper each piece of
salmon and top with 2 tablespoons
of spinach mixture.
3. Roll out pastry sheets on lightly
floured board. Cut 1 piece of pastry

1 inch larger than the salmon. Cut a
second piece large enough to drape
over fillet and touch counter, plus
1 inch to spare all the way around.
4. Brush edge of smaller sheet with
lightly beaten egg mixed with milk.
Place 1 piece of salmon in center of
pastry. Drape larger piece over
salmon and seal the two pieces of
dough together by folding and pleat-
ing like a pie crust. Repeat for each

Treatments Can Improve Troublesome Aches

When aches and pain need medical attention

For many older adults,
aching muscles and joints are
common. Muscles weaken with
age and become less flexible,
which can cause stiffness or
But in some cases, aches
are a symptom of a disease or
side effect from medication.
Adults should check with a doc-
tor when body aches have lasted
more than a month; when
aching is intense or interferes
with normal activities; when
morning stiffness lasts more
than an hour; or when aching
has come on suddenly with no
obvious cause.
The March issue of Mayo
Clinic Health Letter covers pos-
sible causes and treatments for
body aches.
Polymyalgia Rheumatic:
This causes Widespread, moder-
ate to severe joint stiffness and
muscle aching that often in-
volves the neck, shoulders and
hips. Symptoms are usually
worse in the morning. Relative-
ly low doses of the corticos-
teroid prednisone usually pro-
S vide remarkable relief.

For some people, the first
step in the morning sends pain
shooting, as if they were stepping
on a sharp rock.
According to the March issue
of Mayo Clinic Health Letter, the
most likely cause of heel pain is
plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-
I-tis). This inflammation of the
plantar fascia, the fibrous tissue
that runs along the bottom of the
foot, may limit one's regular range
of motion.
The pain is usually worst in
the morning and can be excruciat-
ing. Typically, as the foot limbers
up, the pain lessens. Plantar fasci-
itis can affect people of all ages.
Contributing factors can include
wearing high heels or shoes with
poor arch support; lifting heavy
objects or making sudden increas-
es in weight-bearing activities.
Excess body weight also can be a

Infections: *Short-lived
body aches can accompany a
bacteria or viral infection.
Symptoms usually go away
once the infection is gone.
Rheumatoid Arthritis:
This and other forms of inflam-
matory arthritis are considered
autoimmune diseases. The im-
mune system attacks parts of
the body, causing inflammation
and tissue damage, particularly
in the joints. A wide variety of
medications, including corti-
costeroids or drugs that affect
the immune system, are used to
reduce pain and inflammation.
Inflammatory My-
opathies: These autoimmune
diseases, where the immune
system attacks muscles, cause
progressive muscle weakness
over time. Treatments are corti-
costeroids or drugs that affect
the immune system.
Depression: Aches and
pains can be symptoms of de-
pression. And people coping
with chronic pain often can be-
come depressed, 'worsening
sensations of pain and aching.
Combining antidepressant

Giving the plantar fascia a
chance to heal will take patience
and persistence. With self-care
treatments, the condition usually
clears up within 24 months. Con-
sider these self-care tips to help
reduce pain:
Daily stretches; Stretching
increases the flexibility of the
plantar fascia, Achilles tendon and
calf muscles. Stretches before get-
ting out of bed can reduce pain.
Cooling the heel: Soaking
only the heel in cold water may
help. Applying a cloth-covered
ice or gel pack for 15 minutes, es-
pecially after an activity, may re-
duce pain. A bag of unpopped
popcorn, cooled in the freezer and
used as an ice pack, also can be
Wearing Appropriate Shoes:
Low-to medium-heel shoes (no

medication with psychotherapy
can help ease pain.
Medications: A possible side
effect of station drugs, commonly
prescribed to reduce cholesterol,
is muscle pain and weakness.
Occasionally, stations may cause
myopathy, characterized by se-
vere muscle aching and weak-
ness. To reduce pain, the patient
may need to learn other ways to
manage cholesterol levels.
Underactive Thyroid Dis-
ease: Most common in women
over 60, this occurs when the
thyroid gland isn't producing
enough of the hormone thyrox-
ine. Symptoms include constant
fatigue, muscle aches and an in-
ability to stay warm in cooler
environments. Treatment in-
volves a synthetic version of
thyroxine, usually taken in pill
Vitamin D Deficiency: Vi-
tamin D is produced by the skin.
when it's exposed to sunlight. A
deficiency can cause muscle
weakness, aches and pains. Vit-
amin D supplements can ease

more thari 1- to 2-inch heels) with
good support and shock absorp-
tion are best. A variety of shoe in-
serts such as heel cups, special-
ized over- the-counter insoles and
arch supports can be beneficial,
Pain Relievers: Nonprescrip-
tion pain relievers such as ibupro-
fen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and
naproxen (Aleve, others) can ease
pain and inflammation.
When self-care options
aren't enough, a physician can
recommend other options such as
orthotics, night splints, physical
therapy, cortisone injections and
other treatments.

Fibromyalgia: Symptoms
often include fatigue and wide-

spread pain and aching in joints
and muscles. Treatment in-

volves a variety of pain manage-
ment techniques.
