The Midwest Center for Law & Justice is not your average law firm. People come in as clients and stay with us as life-long friends. We are dedicated to our clients and the community and our contributions have been recognized by the American Heart Association and, most recently, were given our second consecutive award by the Missouri Bar for service to the community. We are a full service firm because life does happen in a vacuum and handing just one of your legal issues could have adverse consequences on other areas of your life. We do not specialize in one area of the law, we specialize in you and your family. Both attorneys, Marsha I. Stiles and Holly L. Faust, are educators

and have headed various college programs and teach on different aspects of the law. We take that ability to teach and extend it to our clients so they can understand their rights and options under the law without talking over their heads. More importantly, we care. We are diligent, easily accessible, and aggressive litigators. We staunchly advocate for religious freedom and willingly offer to speak at various events on multiple topics from faith and freedom, estate planning, parent’s rights, and business planning.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment May be Right for You! Feeling great about your smile and having a good bite is important at any age. Even well into your adult years it’s not too late to look into receiving orthodontic treatment to get that beautifully straight smile and healthy bite you have always wanted. There are many reasons to choose to start orthodontic treatment as an adult. Maybe your teeth are crooked, making it difficult to bite together correctly. You may simply want a straighter smile for aesthetic reasons, or possibly because you have experienced continued pain due to misaligned jaws. If you are an adult who has difficulty chewing, experience speech difficulty, have teeth that are crowded, or notice incorrect shifting of the jaw when you open or close your mouth you may be a candidate for orthodontic care.

The great news for many people experiencing any issues with aesthetics or bite is that there are a variety of excellent orthodontic treatment options available today, making it easier than ever for adults to achieve great results for their smiles. Some options include: traditional metal braces, ceramic (clear) braces, and even nearly “invisible” options. Having a consultation with a board certified orthodontist can provide you with the best information about treatment fees up front, and help you determine what type of treatment is right for you and your budget. If you have questions about adult orthodontic treatment, please call us today at 417-887-1220 to schedule your free orthodontic consultation. We believe in treating every patient with customized, quality care to help you get the amazing smile you have always wanted! Find out more at: www.parkcrestdental.com

The Truth About House Bill 1550 I have heard many people say the same thing recently, “That new bill Missouri just passed gives me more rights, doesn’t it?” I hate to break it to you but the truth is that it does not. When you divorce and children are involved or you have a child out of wedlock and gain rights through a paternity action, the Court orders a visitation schedule to be used in the event Mom and Dad cannot get along. What the new bill does add language to existing law that urges courts not to base child custody on the sex of the parent, encourages 50/50 custody plans, and requires that there be mandatory language in the parenting plan that says if you withhold visitation from the other parent, the other parent can file a Family Access Motion.

stated that only 50/50 custody is joint physical custody and all other custody grants sole custody to the custodial parent.

The Eastern District Court of Appeals applied the new law in Morgan v Morgan, ED103426 (Mo. App. 2016). In that decision, the Court upheld a change in custody from Mom to Dad but, even though visitation was essentially flipped with Mom now getting alternating weekends, Dad would be considered to have sole legal custody. The Court

This column is designed to give general information and should not be construed as legal advice on any specific fact or circumstance & does not create an attorney/client relationship. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.

The bottom line is that if you really want what is best for you and your children then do not keep them from the other parent unless that parent is an ax murderer. Do not speak poorly of the other parent even he/she has been a jerk to you. The kids will figure things out in the long run and do not need your help in doing so. What they need is you to love them more than you hate the other parent.

The Truth About Sugar in Your Diet It’s sugar, not fat, that causes heart attacks. And it turns out that the sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960’s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead. Fifty years of doctors’ advice and government eating guidelines have been wrong. We’ve been told to swap eggs for cereal. But that recommendation is dead wrong. In fact, it’s very likely that this bad advice has killed millions of Americans. A rigorously done study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30 percent. For years, we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that fat causes heart attacks and raises cholesterol, and that sugar is harmless except as a source of empty calories. They are not empty calories. As it turns out, sugar calories are deadly calories. Sugar causes heart attacks, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cancer and dementia, and is the leading cause of liver failure in America.

This new research syncs with decades of data on how sugar causes insulin resistance, high triglycerides, lower HDL (good) cholesterol and dangerous small LDL (bad) cholesterol. It also triggers the inflammation we now know is at the root of heart disease. And fats, including saturated fats, have been unfairly blamed. With the exception of trans fats, fats are actually protective. This includes omega-3 fats, nuts and olive oil, which was proven to reduce heart attack risk by more than 30 percent in a recent large randomized controlled study. Here’s the simple fact: Sugar calories are worse than other calories. All calories are not created equal. A recent study of more than 175 countries found that increasing overall calories didn’t increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes, but increasing sugar calories did — dramatically. So if you really want to follow the most healthy diet plans, don’t worry as much about how much fat you eat. Focus more on kicking sugar to the curb.
