$3.6 million. Two more teachers in the family life program also would lose their jobs. Two teachers in the family life program talked extensively about their positions and urged the School Board not to eliminate two of the six teachers in their department. “Eliminating two positions would mean each teacher would go from 1,666 students to over 2,500 per teacher,” said Karen Gambriel, a family life teacher. “Family life teachers are specially trained and cover material not covered elsewhere. Sexual assault, rape, child abuse are some areas covered.” “I teach in eight schools in the county,” said Wendy Ames,

another family life teacher. “We stay with students for seven years, and my students trust me and their parents trust me.” “Let me give you a few examples of students I’ve worked with,” she continued. “I had a student come to me and said she had been raped. She needed somebody to talk to and hadn’t told her mother. She needed help. Another girl came to me upset about her boyfriend coming to visit her. As it turned out, it was an Internet relationship with a grown man from Washington state. We were able to get her out of the situation and nothing happened.” Shellie Waldron, a member and past president of the Hanover Education Association, talked about teacher cuts and the proposed addition of one student to each class to make up

streamlining and modifying programs.” Some speakers supported the proposed budget. “You’re dealing with a very difficult budget, and I want to give my support to the superintendent’s proposed budget,” said Vern Inge, president of the Hanover Education Foundation. “Property taxes are down and money for education is down. Again, the superintendent and her staff have worked hard and I support this budget.” Matte Anderson, a Hanover businessman, also complimented the board. “I consider this administration to be first rate,” Anderson said. “Take a look at the budget. We can’t spend what you don’t have. As a member of the business community, I support this plan.”

He said he didn’t see any proposed cuts in the Central Office and eliminating staff there also should be considered. He said he would like to have a private meeting with superintendent Dr. Jamelle Wil-son to discuss the issue. Dale Taylor said she wondered how a school system can run without bus drivers and teachers. “If cuts need to be made, they should be bottom to top,” said Taylor. “I think we need to look at the administration,

chairman on Jan. 11, the vote was split 4-3. As the supervisors face budget numbers from within their own administration and those from Hanover County Public Schools, he said, “Board members are going to have to work closely together. And it’s going to take a concentrated effort by all of us.” “We’re all going to have to work together – no matter who’s chairman, because what really matters is the citizens of the county and that’s why we’re on the Board of Supervisors,” Via added. “We would certainly be remiss in our duties if we don’t work together collaboratively as a unified board as we find ourselves in tough economic times.” The Hanover County School Board has been crunching numbers, with Dr.

Jamelle Wilson, superintendent, proposing a budget of $191.6 million. No action has been taken on the proposal. Ultimately, the supervisors will determine the school district’s funding. From county government’s standpoint, Via said the administration team, under the leadership of county administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr., “has been in touch with the superintendent of schools and talked about some

things, but they’re still working on it, so we don’t know what the final outcome is going to be.” “Our county administrator and his department are working on the budget now and they haven’t mentioned any particulars about where cuts are going to made, but we do know that there are cuts going to be made,” Via said. “People are going to be shifted around.” “The economy has really stifled construction,” he

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Budget season: BOS may face tough decisions While there can be great satisfaction in public service, one aspect that probably is difficult falls within the boundaries of making tough — and often unpopular — decisions. That could be the case facing our newly seated Hanover County Board of Supervisors. The Hanover County School Board is again considering a budget proposal that eliminates jobs. How will the supervisors respond when they receive that presentation? A letter to the editor appeared in last week’s edition from Beaverdam resident Dale Taylor questioning how the school district can operate “without bus drivers to safely deliver the students, food and sanitation services, and classroom instructors?” The letter continued, “There was not one single recommendation to cut any Central Office position, reduce some of the mega-salaries, or eliminate county-provided vehicles.” This writer has lived and worked in six different areas throughout a 37year career. With each, the cry has been the same when school system positions were eliminated. The finger is pointed toward the Central Office staff and the salaries of those employed within those walls. Will this become an issue when Dr. Jamelle Wilson presents her first budget proposal to the supervisors? Since the November election, and the change in the makeup of the Board of Supervisors, many have speculated that we will see a more fiscally conservative group. Another issue Taylor addressed was an elected School Board. Do you agree with members being appointed by the supervisors? Do you think your district is being adequately represented on the School Board? Do you ever attend a School Board meeting? Are you involved in your child’s school? What about the timing in which members are reappointed or replaced? Should it come when new supervisors take office? The questions are many, but only time will tell about the answers. Melody Kinser

Presidential visit

A remarkable team helped a mother’s dream come true.

Melody Kinser/The Local

Hope Royer, president of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Virginia (GFWC of Virginia), addressed the Pamunkey Woman’s Club on Monday, Jan. 16, at the Enon United Methodist Church in Mechanicsville. A resident of ManakinSabot, she announced PWC president Virginia Darnell has advanced in the Jennie Award, which honors a clubwoman from each GFWC Region “for outstanding commitment to club, community and family.” Clubs select their representative, who then competes at the state, region and national levels. Darnell is the Virginia representative and also competed in the Southeastern Region. The Jennie Award, named for the GFWC’s founder, Jane Cunningham Croly, who wrote for national newspapers under the pseudonym, “Jennie June,” “is an occasion to highlight those extraordinary clubwomen who epitomize her spirit of independence, courage and persistence in purpose through their roles as volunteers within their clubs, elsewhere in the community, and as member of a family or extended family.” The GFWC Jennie Award is the only national honor that recognizes individual members for personal excellence. It is the highest honor bestowed by GFWC. Darnell said she learned of her finalist status on her birthday in December. The 121st GFWC Annual Convention, at which time the winner will be revealed, will be held June 1417 in Charlotte, N.C. Royer also talked about projects of the state organization, including domestic violence. Before the meeting, members enjoyed a soup and salad dinner.

On Monday, they were incarcerated at the Pamunkey Regional Jail in Hanover County. Wells was shot Saturday night in the 7300 block of Verdi Lane, where he resided. He was a sophomore at Atlee High School. BYARS Whitley said the preliminary investigation indicates a prior arrangement was made to purchase a quantity of marijuana from the victim. However, the intention of the suspects was never to purchase the marijuana. Rather, they intended to steal it. As a result, a physical

to aid county students By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com

t least four school counselors will be at Atlee High School this week to talk with students who are grieving over the weekend death of a classmate. Brett A. Wells, 16, of the 7300 block of Verdi Lane was shot and killed on Saturday, Jan. 21. Another male was wounded and is expected to recover. “We have four full-time counselors that are on staff at Atlee High School who are currently handling grief counseling for those seeking it,” Dr. Carole O’Brien, director of counseling for Hanover County Public Schools, said. “If we need additional help, we have school psychologists and social workers we can call in.” Grief counseling takes place in county schools on almost a daily basis. According to O’Brien, it doesn’t have to be a major event like a student’s death to bring counselors to a school.

Every school has counselors. It might be one counselor at an elementary school and three or four at a high school. Counselors see students for personal matters like parents getting a divorce. It also might be about a family illness, death or problem. Depending on the issue, sometimes parents join the student in meeting with the counselors. Counselors stay at a school as long as they are needed. There is no formula as to how long they might be available. If needed, counselors from other schools will come to meet with students. Counselors listen and offer help and advice when it’s appropriate. The investigation into Wells’ death is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office at 365-6140 or the Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “iTip” followed by your tip. Both methods are anonymous.

Spay/neuter services available Jessica Beath Clinic now open in old Farrington fire squad location By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com Dogs and cats in Central Virginia have some new friends in Hanover County dedicated to making life better for them. The Jessica Beath Clinic in the old Farrington Volunteer Fire Squad building is now a spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats. The clinic opened in October and is the only spay/neuter clinic between downtown Richmond and Fredericksburg. Surgical procedures are performed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On an average day, the clinic will perform 25 to 30 procedures, with a maximum potential of 50.

The clinic opened in October and is the only spay/neuter clinic between downtown Richmond and Fredericksburg.

Bandit’s Adoption and Rescue of K-9s (BARK) started the clinic to provide the area with accessible and affordable spay/ neuter services and to promote responsible pet ownership. A $60,000 grant from the estate of Jessica Beath provided the initial money to buy the building and establish the clinic. The clinic’s vet, Dr. Erin Barron, has been involved in high-volume spay/neuter

clinics for 12 years. “A clinic like this one helps minimize the risk to animals when they are operated on,” Barron said. “Any anesthesia or operation is a risk, but it’s very safe here. We do a wonderful job with pain relief.” At the clinic, the examination room and sterile surgical areas are behind glass walls, and the operating tables are heated stainless steel. In addition to pet owners, clients of the clinic include the animal shelters in Hanover, Henrico and Orange counties, several dog breeders and kennel operators and BARK. see SERVICES, pg. 17

Jail staff continues Christmas tradition of helping less fortunate Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The spirit of giving was alive and well this past holiday season at the Pamunkey Regional Jail, as jail staff collected gifts, including clothing, toys and a holiday meal, to deliver Christmas week to less fortunate families in Hanover and Caroline counties and the Town of Ashland. Gift ideas are based on the requests made by the adopted families. “I was concerned this year, because everyone’s personal budgets are so tight that we might have to scale back or cancel the program this year, but the officers and employees of the jail came through in a big way. Our staff still enjoys the

opportunity to give something back,” Col. James C. Willett, CJM, the jail’s superintendent, said. This year, the typical gifts donated by staff were supplemented by several generous contributions from local businesses, such as Martin’s, Kroger, Target, JC Penney, Great Clips and Walmart that contributed to the success of the program. The Adopt-A-Family Program is just one part of a continuing effort by the Pamunkey Regional Jail to reach out to the citizens and community that it serves, and help foster a positive perception of the jail and its staff.

R-MC targets preschool initiative Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The Education Department at Randolph-Macon College’s chapter of Student Virginia Education Association (SVEA) is working with Hanover Preschool Initiative to support fatherhood and health education through activities that promote health education and father involvement with a football theme. The project is funded by a grant CLASS (Community Learning Through America’s Schools) Grant from the NationalEducationAssociation’s Student Program. The CLASS grant manager is Heather Brazier, a senior who is preparing to become an elementary school teacher. “I am excited the SVEA has the opportunity to promote father initiative and health education while having fun at the

same time,� Brazier said. “This experience allows the chapter to become more involved locally.� Randolph-Macon College’s SVEA identified Hanover Preschool Initiative as its site for a community project because it is a program for young children with a family component. SVEA members spoke with Dawn Ault, Hanover Preschool Initiative director, about areas where the SVEA might be able to assist. Ault talked about the need for activities and assistance with their Fatherhood Initiative Program, along with the promotion of health education. Chapter members suggested activity stations for children and fathers, health and activity gift bags for all kids, and healthrelated door prizes for fathers. The director readily endorsed these ideas.

Senior Resource Fair to be held on Feb. 9 50% OFF All Dental Work

The Hanover County Council on Aging, in partnership with Mechanicsville Baptist Church, will be coordinating a Senior Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Feb. 9, at the church, located at 8016

Atlee Road in Mechanicsville. Resource information and brief presentations will be offered by a variety of human service organizations. The free event offers older adults and family members an

opportunity to meet with service providers to ask specific questions and gain information to enhance their quality of life and financial futures. For more information, or to inquire about hosting a

Senior Resource Fair, contact Lisa Adkins, Hanover County Department of Community Resources at 365-4302. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

In February!

A once yearly dental cleaning, much like the procedure performed by your dentist, can help prevent periodontal disease. A dental cleaning involves scaling of all teeth, checking for pockets of infection, loose teeth, and exposed nerve roots, as well as polishing.

The SKY’S THE LIMIT

While a yearly dental procedure does provide cosmetic advantages such as clean teeth and fresh breath, it can also improve your petʼs general health. Infection and inflammation in the mouth can affect your petʼs entire body and can lead to other more serious medical problems such as heart & kidney disease.

Keep your pet’s Teeth Happy & Healthy Call today! www.hanovergreenvet.com

Simon says ‘No’ to Hampden-Sydney rally

Randolph-Macon wins 9th straight by downing rival Tigers 86-80 By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Randolph-Macon forward Andre Simon normally shoots less than 60 percent from the foul line. Unfortunately for Old Dominion Athletic Conference rival Hampden-Sydney, the Tigers caught Simon while he was hot. Simon converted 12-of14 free throws en route to a game-high 18 points that led Randolph-Macon to an 86-80 victory over visiting Hampden-Sydney at Crenshaw Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon. The victory was the ninth straight for the Yellow Jackets (15-3, 8-2 ODAC) and moved

34

them just above the Tigers (134, 7-2) into second place in the ODAC standings to trail #2 ranked Virginia Wesleyan (132, 6-1) by a half game. The significance of the contest – against a big rival who is also battling for the top spot in the conference standings – inspired Simon to pick up his game on the line. “I was just extra focused on the big game,” Simon said. “We needed all of them – got to make them all.” Simon’s above average shooting paid off in the final minutes. After a close-fought first half, Randolph Macon built an 11-point lead, 51-40, with 14:54 left in the game. Hampden-Sydney’s Ru White – a former star at L.C. Bird – nailed two free throws to tie the game at 69-69 with 4:30 remaining, but the Yellow Jackets dominated the court the final two minutes to seal the victory.

The Mechanicsville Local January 25, 2012

“Basketball is a game of runs,” said Randolph-Macon guard Adam Desgain. “Every team is going to make a run. It’s just a matter of how we go and respond to it. We talked about before – stay calm and just don’t let it happen again.” In those final minutes, Desgain contributed five points from the foul line himself. He finished with 14 points. Desgain’s fellow guard Calvin Croskey also scored 14 points – including two of his four 3-pointers in the final four minutes. Forward Lamar Giggetts scored 15 for the Yellow Jackets. One of the reasons

Randolph-Macon had such a hard time putting the Tigers away was Hampden-Sydney guard Ben Jessee. The former Cosby Titan scored 17 points – including four 3-pointers. “We were just running the offense, trying to get good shots,” Jessee said. “A couple of plays I just happened to get a good look at it, so I tried to knock it down for my team.” Randolph-Macon got a big boost in the second half from freshman Akeem Holmes. The King William graduate had to fill in for a Hanover graduate, starting center Dylan Cole, who was out sick. Holmes scored 10 points and blocked three shots

before picking up his fourth foul and leaving the game with 10:07 left. “I was thinking I had to really focus because one of our guys was out and I usually play behind him,” Holmes said. “It was my time to step up. I had to get focused really quick. I had to

focus up on defense. I had my mind on my offense. I was fine after that.” Randolph-Macon wasted no time getting back on top after the Tigers evened the score in the final minutes. After a see SIMON, pg. 35 `


Hawks maintain standard, down Atlee Hanover keeps pace of Capital’s best By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Hanover girls basketball team maintained their hold on third place in the Capital District race with a 50-31 win over visiting Atlee (4-11, 2-6 Capital) on Friday night. The Hawks’ pressure defense virtually shut down the Raider offense completely; keeping them scoreless in the first quarter then limiting the Atlee scoring to a single player until over a minute into the third period. “We came out, really played well defensively in the first quarter,” said Hanover head coach Kevin Brooks. “I thought we played well defensively for the most part the whole game.” The Hawks (10-6, 7-2) concentrated their efforts on shutting down Steff Staples, who is clearly Atlee’s biggest offensive threat. Brooks assigned April Langford to the task and she held Staples scoreless until 6:40 before halftime. “I thought April did a tremendous job on Steff Staples,” Brooks said. “It’s one of those things you put her in and she starts and you tell her what her assignment is and she still performs offensively.” Hanover created turnovers and came away with nearly 20 steals in the game, led by a game-high seven from senior Brook Throckmorton. Meanwhile the Hanover offense methodically went to work. Taylor Woolard scored on a put-back basket 15 seconds into the game then Erica Hess added to the lead less than a minute later. Four straight points from Rachel Fehl (10 points, 8 rebounds) were followed by a three from Erica Barrett and a pair of free throws by Sydni Carey (8 points, 8

their own. A Lynnse Caler free throw was followed by a jumper from Fehl, a three from Throckmorton and a basket by Carey. Barrett added a free throw and Woolard came away with a steal and layup. A free

succeeded. “Tip your hat to RandolphMacon, I thought they came out and played harder than we did,” Vick said. “I told our team I thought we did a nice job on the first-shot defense, but it was on the misses that they outscrapped us for second opportunities. Any 50-50 ball early in the game they got.” The Tigers nevertheless outrebounded the Yellow Jackets 37-32. Randolph-Macon’s edge was in field goal percentage: converting 52 percent (28-of54) of their attempts compared to 44 percent (28-of 64) shooting by Hampden-Sydney. The Yellow Jacket defense did its best not-to-help. RandolphMacon defenders blocked six Hampden-Sydney shots – three of those blocks were by Holmes in the first half including one

quick inbound, Croskey hit a 3pointer to put the Yellow Jackets back on top, 72-69. Randolph-Macon coach Nathan Davis immediately called a time out, but not because he was worried about what may happen. “We were getting the shots we wanted,” Davis said. “We just had to stick with what we were doing, stick with the plan at both ends. “[The Tigers] were doing a good job on offense getting the shots they wanted. I didn’t know there was a whole lot we could do about the way it was going, but we had to make it a little tougher.” Hampden-Sydney coach Dee Vick felt the Yellow Jackets

throw from Carey made the score Hanover 29, Staples 8 at the half. Atlee’s inability to score was clearly evident in the final stats. Staples finished with 19 points, the rest of the Raiders team had 12. Due to attrition, first year

head coach LaTanya Collins guides a Raider squad that is extremely young and inexperienced. But despite the lack of developed skills, Collins has utilized the one weapon that is available every night- defense. Though ball handling and shooting may have been lack-

ing against the Hawks, defensive effort was not. The scrappy Raiders proved to be a constant nuisance to Hanover, so much so that despite lack of scoring Atlee played the Hawks even in the second half. Foremost was the effort of Jamari Blackwell, see HANOVER, pg. 39 `

on former Hanover standout Greg Lewis, a freshman with the Tigers. “He’s been getting better and better,” Davis said. “He’s got a chance to be a special player if he keeps working at it. He’s doing great in school, so we’re really excited by what he’s capable of doing.” HAMPDEN-SYDNEY (13-4, 72 ODAC) — Jessee 17, White 9, Williamson 9, Hargrove 2, George 9, Lewis 5, Ward 3, Corrigan 3, Anderson 12, Obradovic 13, Lumpkin 0.

Hawks heat up for stretch run; beat Atlee Hanover cruises by Raiders 89-53 By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com A week after pulling out an incredible three-overtime win against Lee-Davis, Atlee appeared primed to take fellow county rival Hanover the distance as well. But a 17-point second quarter explosion by Hanover’s Justin Peebles broke open a close contest and the Hawks cruised to an 89-53 victory. “We knew we had to come into this game and play hard because of the rivalry,” Peebles said. “They’re a pretty good team and somehow we pulled it out.” The victory improved Hanover’s record to a less than impressive 5-11 (5-5 Capital), but recent play has shown the Hawks are arguably the best five-

win team in the Central Region. In the past two weeks the Hawks have fallen at #7 Highland Springs by five points, at #3 Henrico by 10 and at Varina by seven. With five of their final six games at home, Hanover is primed to go on a run. “We’ve been in all our games and like I said we’re just starting

to gel,” said Hanover head coach Darren Thornton. “Some of the guys we got a little late because of the football season. It takes a little time for everything to gelput in a new offense, so they’re really getting comfortable with that now and things are really see HAWKS, pg. 37 `

RIR revs up for 60th year of NASCAR By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com NASCAR’s return to town may still be a few months away but Richmond International Raceway is revving up the celebration early. This year, RIR enters its 60th anniversary of NASCAR racing and the track wants to make it a season to remember. “Sixty years of NASCAR at RIR is a bid deal,” said track president Dennis Bickmeier. It’s a milestone year.” The anniversary gives RIR a chance to commemorate the past while looking towards the future. “I think it gives us some opportunities on a lot of fronts,” Bickmeier said. “One is toe really engage fans and interact Photos by Charlie Leffler/The Local with them, with their thoughts At left: As part of the 60th Anniversary celebration at RIR, track president Dennis Bickmeier and memories of RIR; the driv- entered a contest that involved changing tires the way they did in 1953- with a 4-way lug wrench. see ANNIVERSARY, pg. 37 `

starting to click for us. “We had to come in here and make a statement,” a confident Peebles said. “We’re one of the best teams in the county- One of the best teams in the region. We’ve got to start playing like it.” “I think we’re one of the better shooting teams in the district and really in the region,” Thornton said. “We’ve got a lot of guys that can put the ball in the basket and we’re really starting to feed off one another as a team.” Feeding off each other was a contributing factor that made the Hawks click on Friday night. Against Atlee a majority of Hanover’s baskets came off assists, with players passing up shots of their own to find the open man. “That’s one of the things we really want to focus on is teamwork,” Thornton said. “We feel like we’re a deep team that we can bring guys just like Justin Peebles. He might not start; he might come off the bench- the guys that can really light it up and score a lot of points. We think that we’re really deep and we want to use all the weapons that we have.”

ers, past performers here, past competitors here.” In many ways Bickmeier, in his first full season at RIR, is looking upon the celebration from the perspective of the fans. “I look at it from my perspective of being new to this market, new to this raceway and I’m going to get an education,” he said. “Hearing all the stories about the history of the place. “The flipside of it is we’ve got a lot of fans that have been coming here for a long time,” Bickmeier said. “For them, they get to share that knowledge. I think you put the two of those together it’s going to be cool.”

Atlee’s Kevin Drayton, right, drives into paint to put up a shot over Hanover’s Sam Rogers (10). Drayton and teammate Ruben Rucker carried Atlee early but the Hawks’ defense took control to cruise to a rivalry win.

Atlee raced out of the gate, taking a 12-5 lead three minutes in as Kevin Drayton (13 points) and Ruben Rucker (10 points) pressed the tempo. But Hanover answered with a 12-0 run, thanks largely to the efforts of junior guards Nick Douglas (10 points) and Sam Rogers. Douglas and Rogers connect-

ed on jumpers. Douglas then drilled a three from the right wing, Rogers a free throw and Douglas again. Douglas then found Chris Childress under the basket and the Hawks led 17-12. Bryan Ratchford (9 points) momentarily stopped the bleeding for Atlee but from the final minute of the first it was Hanover

in control. Leading 20-16 in the opening seconds of the second, Peebles came into the game and immediately went to work. After splitting a pair of free throws, Peebles (21 points) connected on a three from the left baseline; then another three off a feed from Trayvonte Brown (15

When it comes to knowing the past at RIR, local race historian Joe Kelly was there at the very beginning and recalls the first race well. “It’s kind of amazing to me really,” Kelly said. “When it started, we thought it was the biggest thing in the world.” Richmond was the sixth of a 37 race NASCAR Grand Nationals slate; 33 of which took place on dirt tracks. It rained the morning of April 19, 1953 when the first NASCAR race was scheduled to run at what was then called the Atlantic Rural Exposition Fairgrounds. The Sunday morning sprinkle only worsened the damage done to the ½ mile dirt track by rains on Friday and

Saturday. With a hopeful city planning for the event, organizers did their best to improve track conditions. “I mean it was a real mess,” Kelly said. “They took cars out on the track from guys in the grandstand to try to work the track in. Flipped a guy in a ‘40 Ford, a beautiful car, well at the end of the day he was crying.” Time trials that day were also memorable for all the wrong reasons. The surface that normally allowed speeds of up to 75 mph could on produce 48 mph runs during trials. The pole was won with a time of 48.465 mph. Two of NASCAR’s most prominent racers, defending national champion Tim Flock

and Fonty Flock who had won at Darlington the previous year were scheduled to run the event but they decided the track was too rough. Yet, after time trials were completed they changed their mind and NASCAR rep Pat Purcell offered them a deal. The pair could race but they would have to start at the back of the pack. “They said ‘No way’,” Kelly explained. “They said, ‘No we want to run time trials the track’s nice now’.” When Purcell refused, the pair said they would not race in Richmond so he had them, along with their cars escorted from the track by Henrico policemen. “They didn’t want the people

points); then a plus-one goal off a feed from Brown to score 10 points in a 2:07 minute span that put the Hawks up 32-19. Peebles added two more threes before the period had finished; the best of which came off a Rogers assist from his knees that gave Hanover a 47-26 lead heading into the locker room. Peebles only scored four points over the remainder of the contest but Thornton pointed out that was just an example of his players sharing the ball. “He’s just starting to take what the defense is giving him,” Thornton said. “They just start doubling him a whole lot and he just starts to get other guys involved. He’s got other parts of his game that he’s really been working on and getting better at. So he just starting to play that and show that a whole lot more.” Atlee’s Jacob Hurd scored the first basket out of the locker room but Hanover quickly answered with back-to-back threes by Brown and Childress, two jumpers from Tyler Shannon (14 points) and one from Childress for a 59-32 lead. Hanover rode a 70-38 lead into the fourth quarter and immediately widened it further. Peebles scored the first four points of the period then

Douglas put back a Peebles miss and Jordan Wade drilled a wideopen three from the right wing. When Shannon connected on a jumper with 4:46 to play the Hawks led 81-40. Even with the outstanding offensive display, Thornton attributes the win to the Hawks’ effort on the other side of the ball. “I think our guys rallied together and we really turned it up on defense,” he said. “We keep preaching defense is the key and I think our guys really embraced that so we really put our focus on the defense. “It was great to win, especially against a rival like Atlee,” Thornton said. “We knew they were going to come in and play hard against us. These guys see each other all the time and the guys wanted to have a good showing tonight.”

in the stands looking down and seeing the National Champion and the Southern 500 winner not racing,” Kelly said. “They’d figure something was wrong with the track. They said, ‘Yeah, there was, it was junk’.” With a total purse of $3625, 27 cars took to the track for a race that was truly a battle to the finish. Lee Petty, in his 1953 Dodge, fought it out with Dick Rathman, in a 1953 Hudson Hornet, at an average speed of 45.535 mph. “They battled each other,” Kelly said. “At the end of the day, the Dodge looked like a crushed beetle and the Hudson looked like a turtle that had lost everything but its chance.” It was Petty that emerged

victorious to claim the $1000 first place prize money and started history in Richmond. “It established the name Petty in this particular area,” Kelly said. “Richard came along after his dad. A lot people don’t know that his dad won here four times. Then Richard won another 13. This track established what the epitome was for racing.” Sixty years has not clouded the memory for Kelly or his fondness for the track. “Looking back on this place, it was automatic. It was the big track to us,” he said. “Had a little track across town. It as a ¼ mile but this was the big track. And as far as 60 years. Another 60 years I think it will be bigger.”

Chenault edges Valasek by .025 for All-Around title

www.mechlocal.com See slideshow & video highlights online!

Atlee takes gymnastics Quad crown By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com In their last major tune-up before the Feb. 4 regional meet, all four county high school gymnastic teams faced off in their annual Quad at Hanover High School last Wednesday. Atlee took the team title with a score of 139.975 while Lee-Davis narrowly edged out Hanover for second, 133.05 to 132.09. With only five gymnasts in most events, Patrick Henry scored a solid 129.75 for fourth place. The battle for the All-Around title was equally as close. LeeDavis senior Hannah Chenault beat out Patrick Henry’s Kristen Valasek by .025 for the crown; 36.7 to 36.675. The equality among the teams was evident as the four squads split first place finishes evenly. Atlee’s Allie Lewis took first with a 9.25 in the vault. Chenault claimed the floor routine title with a nearly flawless 9.55 performance. Hanover’s Hannah Burress took first on the beam with a 9.275 and Patrick Henry’s Valasek turned in impressive 9.475 on the uneven parallel bars. The Raiders claimed the team title on the strength of 11 ribbon winning performances.

Chelsea Clark turned in outstanding routine on the floor to claim second with 9.125. “Chelsea Clark had the best floor routine of her life,” said Atlee coach Donna Kohler. Likewise, Brianna MacKay claimed second on the beam with a 9.075 routine. Atlee dominated the vault, taking first (Lewis), fourth (MacKay) and fifth (Kate Lewis) while Samantha Thompson and Derika Banks tied for sixth. On the bars Abby Holmes took fourth, MacKay sixth and Allie Lewis was third. Lewis was also sixth on the beam. “I felt like we had a good strong performance,” Kohler said. “Our seniors led the way, Brianna MacKay, Abby Holmes, Chelsea Clark and Allie Lewis had good meets.” Chenault carried Lee-Davis to the second place finish by taking third or better in every event. The senior placed second on the bars with a 9.225, third on the vault (8.95) and third on the beam (8.975) to go along with her winning floor routine. “Hannah Chenault had a real good night,” said Lee-Davis coach Cy Witherow. Teammate Alex Armbrecht placed fifth on the beam. The Confederates were down a team member due to a late injury but the team did a good job of filling the void. “We

had a couple of kids step up and perform well,” Witherow said, speaking of Armbrecht, Becca Fields and Shelby Wingold. A pair of Hannahs were the driving force behind Hanover’s third place finish. Hannah Burruss claimed fourth on the floor and fifth on the bars to go with her top beam routine. Hannah Andrzejewski was fifth on the floor as well as fifth on the vault. “They both had a great night,” said Hanover coach Jessica Moore. “Hannah Andrzejewski’s been battling injuries, which is what gymnastics does to the body and Hannah Burruss has done really well this season.” Moore emphasized a relaxed approach to the competition. “Our goal tonight was to have a good time,” she said. “A lot of people appeared to be stressing in warm ups and the whole point is if they’re in their heads they’re going to mess up so I just try to keep the mental game out of it and let them have a good time.” Patrick Henry’s Valasek scored 8.9 or better on every routine. The senior was second on the vault (9.2), third on the floor (9.1) and fourth on the beam (8.9) to go along with her first place bars routine. “She’s just feeling really comfortable throwing in all of

her tricks,” said first year Patrick Henry coach Austin Beazley. “There’s a lot of competition this year so we have to throw in everything we have and that’s why we’re here to compete. The more you go out there and do it the more comfortable you get with it.” Beazley was pleased with how her team has come together of late. “I was so excited,” she said. “We’ve had a few- one just getting her tonsils out, one’s been hurt, so we’re just kind of getting everybody back and we have improved out score by about 10 points since our first meet so I’m really excited about that.” With the regionals rapidly approaching, each coach emphasized a need for fine tuning over the final weeks of the regular season. “We need to clean up a little bit everywhere,” Witherow said. “We’re losing some points in every event with little starts and stops; not being a fluid as we need to be. We lost probably a point and half on just bars by just pausing or not connecting like we need to.” Kohler concurred for her Raiders. “I feel like we can do better at regionals but I felt really good about their performances,” she said. “Still a few falls on beam and that’s going to be the key. Everybody tells you the key is to stick the beam and

that’s all we can hope for.” “Just cleaning it up; cleaning up their routines,” Moore said. “Every little stub will cost you on the floor. Extra swings will cost you on bars. Obviously falls on beam but you’re either going to stay on it or you’re going to fall off.” On the other hand the Patriots need to work on their confidence. “We still get a little shaky on the balance beam, a little unsure of ourselves on the bars,” Beazley said. “Bars and beam we need to get the falls out of there.” With every meet producing tight results, Beazley indicated this would be one of the best regional competitions in recent years. “It’s going to be a close

regionals this year,” she said. “It will definitely be fun to watch.” The regional meet takes place at Deep Run High School on Feb. 4.

The win was Hanover’s third over a four day stretch. The Hawks handled Henrico on Tuesday then came back to edge host J.R. Tucker on Wednesday. With a 7-2 Capital District record, Hanover now trails second place Varina by a game. For Brooks, nothing has changed with his team near the top of the league this season. “I think we come to practice every day and prepare for the next one and take each day for what it is,” he said. “One of the things we talked about is establishing our standards and playing to our standards. The standard is the standards so to speak.” The coach is most proud of the team’s resiliency. “We’ve battle some injuries and battled some adversity and people have found a way to step up and perform at various times and when their numbers been called they’ve really taken too,” he said. “They’ve believed in each other and helped each other to get wins.

Chris Pace steps down as Hawk softball coach Contributed report Hanover’s Chris Pace has stepped down as head coach of the Hawks softball team for the 2012 season. The only head coach at Hanover since the school opened in 2003, Pace’s teams compiled a 143-49 record in eight seasons, winning 12 different titles, including the Central Region in 2006 and 2007, as well as Hanover High School’s only team state title in 2006. Hanover reached the state playoffs every year from 2004-2007 and has only missed the regional playoffs once (2009) during Pace’s tenure. “There are several reasons for my decision,” Pace said. “First and most importantly, my three kids are growing up fast and I want to spend more time with my family. My daughter Katie played T-Ball last fall at Atlee Little League and loved it, so I will be coaching there this spring. “Helping to build the softball program here at Hanover was a tremendous experience,” Pace

said. “I want to thank each and every player I have had for their hard work, dedication, discipline and intensity. My administrators and many parents have been great as well. I enjoyed it all.” Brian Letourneau, Pace’s assistant of seven seasons, takes over as head coach. Stephanie Acors, a former player at ECU, will be the varsity assistant. After four seasons, pitching coach Tom Brummell is also leaving the program. Pace will remain the varsity golf coach at Hanover.

More Americans looking to food as a source for everyday wellness (ARA)

I

t was about 60 years ago that processed foods and fast-food outlets started to become mainstays of the American lifestyle. The fast-food culture that developed tended to view eating as an inconvenience, providing basic fuel for the day and not much else. More than half a century later, many Americans are more particular about the foods they choose for themselves and their families. In fact, people are seeking out the added health benefits that can be provided by functional or “super” foods. According to the 2011 IFIC Functional Foods Survey, as many as 90 percent of Americans can match at least one food with its associated health benefit. Popular functional foods like fruits and vegetables, fish and fish oil, whole grains, tea and green tea were among the foods Americans look to the most to maintain or improve their health. This apparent increase in the awareness of good nutrition bodes well for the future, and may partly explain the recent uptick in discussions about healthrelated concerns. However, while knowledge of functional foods is increasing, health care costs and astronomical obesity rates seem to demonstrate that knowledge doesn’t always reflect action. “The good news is that nutrition education is working to raise awareness of the health benefits of nature’s ingredients, but the ongoing challenge is to translate awareness into behavior modification,” says registered dietician Ashley Koff, whose nonprofit tool, “Ashley Koff Approved”, helps people identify products that meet a high standard of nutrition and marketing integrity. “A major impediment to making change continues to be the perception that it will require an expensive and complicated total diet overhaul. I strive to communicate that dietary improvements are very simple, affordable and enjoyable. For example, add a cup of tea to your day - all you need is

Tips for improving wellness through dietary habits: water and a tea bag.”

MINIMIZE THE ADDED SUGAR Many products that you may not expect like tomato sauce and breads have added sugars, so make sure to check the label before you make a purchase.

START YOUR DAY OFF RIGHT Eat a complete, well-balanced breakfast and try adding a cup of tea - white, green, black, oolong or herbal - for antioxidants (nature’s clean-up crew) and other health benefits. Celestial Seasonings offers a variety of green teas and wellness teas that are delicious, natural and healthful.

FOCUS ON A BALANCED DIET The best bet for optimal energy is a nutrition plan comprised of four pillars: quantity, quality, frequency and balance. continued on page B2 `

THINK EVOLUTION, NOT REVOLUTION It will seem less stressful to think about making exchanges rather than omissions to your diet (and stress reduction puts another check on your health report). You get the biggest health benefits by improving the quality of the items you consume most frequently, so focus on upgrading your daily staples. For instance, select items that do not use potentially harmful pesticides, choose to eat raw, whole (versus processed) vegetables, drink water with lemon or eat a piece of fruit instead and limit fruit juices.

INCORPORATE COLOR Count the colors you consume and challenge yourself to see how many colors you can include in a single meal. Of course, it’s important to remember that the good colors are those found naturally in fruits and vegetables.

It’s safe to say that Americans will occasionally indulge in nutrient poor meals this year. But perhaps we’ll be enjoying more healthful foods, too, as many of us strive to achieve a more optimal wellness level.

Popular health myths

Myth: Swallowed chewing gum stays in the stomach for seven years.

debunked Well-meaning parents or grandparents often tell children not to do something with the warning that a serious health implication could result. Kids often take their elders at their word. But some of these warnings bear more truth than others. Here’s the scoop on some of the more common misconceptions. Although many health myths prevail, knowing the truth can help parents educate their children better about which behaviors are safe and which are risky. —Metro Creative

Choose Henrico Health & Rehab and get back to life!

While chewing gum cannot be digested and is meant to be chewed and not swallowed, accidentally swallowing a piece here and there won’t cause major issues. That’s because the gum will simply pass through the digestive system whole and come out with stool. If a large amount of gum is swallowed in a short period of time, then there could be issues, including constipation and intestinal blockage in children.

Myth: If you keep your eyes crossed too long, they will get stuck that way. The muscles in the eye are just like any muscles elsewhere in the body. Although they may tire and get sore, they are relatively resilient and can take a lot of wear and tear. Crossing your eyes may tax these muscles, but you won’t do any permanent harm. Rest assured that crossing the eyes will not leave them stuck that way.

Myth: Going outside with wet hair will make you sick. Although you will feel colder stepping outside with a part of your body wet, it won’t make you more susceptible to catching a cold. Researchers at the Common Cold Research Unit in England once tested a group of volunteers who were given the cold virus. One half of the group stayed in a warm room, while the others took a bath and stood wet in a hallway for a half hour. The wet group didn’t catch more colds than the dry.

Myth: Covering your head is most important because you lose 75 percent of your body heat through it.

This calculation is more for an infant whose head makes up a greater percentage of his or her body. In an adult, the figure is closer to 10 percent. Heat can escape from any exposed area of the body. Therefore, it is helpful to bundle up all areas of the body when spending time outdoors in the cold weather.

Myth: Don’t swim right after eating. The basis of this mantra is that when digesting food, the digestive system pulls blood away from the muscles and the idea is that you could cramp up and drown. While you may have less energy to swim vigorously, chances are you won’t be so weak as to drown. January 25, 2012

Zumba Gold For Seniors 55 and Up! ways to eat better now

D

octors, fitness professionals and nutritionists all have ideas on what men and women should and should not eat. Choosing the right foods can help save waistlines and lives. The country is growing larger, and that has nothing to do with the population. Individuals are heavier than ever before. About one-third of Americans are considered obese. No state in the U.S. has an obesity level less than 20 percent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 36 states had a prevalence of 25 percent or more; 12 of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) had a prevalence

of 30 percent or more. The obesity story is much the same in Canada, although residents of that country are slightly less obese than Americans. Statistics Canada states that from 2007 to 2009, 24.1 percent of adults in Canada were obese. Women have higher levels of obesity than men in both countries. Although it is widely known that eating a healthy diet and exercising frequently are the key ways to maintain a healthy weight, it’s easy to fall into bad habits. Some men and women find it difficult to avoid temptation and stay on track with diet. But balance and portion control are great ways to enjoy food without gaining weight. Here are some tips to live by. continued on page B4 `

Nine ways to eat better now

Ask Dr. Mei Q. Can I have braces that are not noticeable? A. Yes, with today’s modern technology there are many ff options besides metal braces. Clear braces, different Invisalign, or I-braces (braces on the inside of the teeth) are all options that are less noticeable or virtually invisible. You may have friends or colleagues at work or school that have braces and you don’t even know it.

Dr. Mei Dr. Meihas hasbeen beennominatnomied by her Virginia nated bypeers her inpeers in Living Magazine as one of Virginia Living Magazine Virginia’s Dentists for as one of top Virginia’s ’ Top 2010 andfor2011. was Dentists 2010.She She was also selected by ConsumalsoselectedbyConsumer er ResearchCouncil Council for for Research America’s Dentist list America’s Top Top Dentist for 2010 and 2011. list for 2010.

Q. I have a 9 year old child. Is it too early to see an orthodontist? A. It is actually recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists that your child have their first visit to an orthodontist by the age of 7. There are several advantages of early treatment for certain problems before all the permanent teeth have erupted. There are some simple treatments done at an early age that may prevent or eliminate more serious problems that could arise in the future if left uncorrected. Q. I am 60 years young. Is it too late for me to have braces? A. No. It is never too late for orthodontics as long as you have a healthy mouth. Orthodontics may be recommended to improve your tooth alignment and/or an improper bite. Having a well aligned bite and nice smile not only looks better, but also improves the health of your teeth. This year I treated a patient who is 79 years young, and he was very excited to begin his treatment. He is a great patient, and he is very pleased with the service he is receiving at my office and the improvement in his tooth alignment. Q. I don’t want my child to miss school. How much time does it take to place braces? A. Although your child may have to miss a minimal amount of time of school to place the braces, many families plan for this on school holidays or the summer time. After your braces are placed, most visits to my office are only 15-30 minutes every four to eight weeks for the duration of your treatment. These appointments may be scheduled in the early mornings before school or late afternoons after school.

Use a smaller plate. This will trick the eye and brain into thinking you are eating a lot. A large plate seems empty with smaller portions, prompting many men and women to eat more than is necessary. Using a smaller dish can give the impression of eating from an overflowing dish.

Make vegetables a priority, not an afterthought. Fill up on vegetables and make meat and other higher-calorie foods the afterthought, instead of vice-versa. In fact, two-thirds of your dish should be consumed by vegetables, with the remaining portion for a protein or starch.

3

Avoid family style meals. That means placing large serving dishes full of food directly on the table. It encourages going in for seconds when you really may not be hungry. It takes the brain at least 20 minutes to register feeling full. So serve yourself from the stove and wait to see if you’re still hungry before going back for more.

4

Switch to skim products. It is widely known that dairy products are an important component of healthy living. However, whole-milk varieties tend to be heavy on calories and saturated fat. Opt for skim milk whenever possible. Today, there are ultra-pasteurized varieties of skim milk that are creamy and filling.

5

Rely on seafood protein. Eating fish once or twice a week is an excellent way to cut calories and enjoy a food that is rich in essential fatty acids.

January 25, 2012

Continued from pg. B3

Experiment with herbs, not salt. A lot of sodium in a diet may not be good for blood pressure and it can lead to water retention. Instead, reach for herbs to add flavor to foods. Keep a fresh selection of parsley, chives, cilantro, basil, and other herbs at the ready and chances are you won’t even miss the salt.

Go sparingly on dressings and sauces. You can quickly turn a healthy salad into an unhealthy meal if you drizzle on too much creamy salad dressing. Studies show that some fast food salads have more fat than other fast food fare, including hamburgers. Opt for the dressing on the side, or select among fat-free alternatives. Use only about 1 to 2 teaspoons for flavor.

8

Indulge once in a while. Depriving yourself of everything that is tasty can lead to binge eating or overeating. Just remember to keep the portions of sweets or fattening foods modest and try not to over-do it the rest of the day.

9

Don’t forget the exercise. The American College of Sports Medicine offers benefits of exercise beyond simply helping you to lose weight: • Lowers risk of heart disease by 40 percent. • Lowers risk of breast cancer by 20 percent. • Lowers risk of depression by 30 percent. • Lowers risk of hypertension by 40 percent. • Lowers risk of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. —Metro Creative


Little-known dietary contributors to heart

R

ed meats, hydrogenized oils – these are the foods we associate with heart disease and high cholesterol. But a few other things many people eat rather frequently could be contributing to future heart problems.

disease

Nutritionists advise that, when choosing grain products, it is important to select those made from whole grains. Not only do these products provide the nutritional benefits of whole grains, including fiber, they also help reduce cholesterol and the risk for heart disease.

White pasta and breads Researchers have found that eating a diet high in refined grains, including those in most store-bought pastas and white breads, can double the risk of heart disease. These foods are those that have a high glycemic index, or GI. Foods with a high GI quickly release sugar into the bloodstream. Doctors have found a correlation between high GI and heart disease, mainly in women, according to research at the University of Milan. The study questioned 32,578 women and 15,171 men. Those who consumed the largest concentration of high GI foods were 2.24 times more likely to develop heart disease than those with the lowest.

Sugary items While many people associate sugary snacks, beverages and sugar itself with dental decay or unnecessary calories, these items also impact cholesterol levels.

The average American eats the equivalent of 21 teaspoons of added sugar a day, which is two to three times the amount they should, according to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found that individuals who consumed the most sugary products had the lowest HDL, or good cholesterol,

Paid Advertisement

and the highest blood triglyceride levels. Eating large amounts of sugar can then be a major risk factor for high cholesterol and heart disease. In its 2010 guidelines, the American Heart Association recommended limiting added sugar in the diet to no more than 100 calories a day for most women and 150 calories for most men. That’s 6 teaspoons for women and 9 for men. To put those guidelines in perspective, consider that a 12-ounce can of soda has between 8 and 10 teaspoons. In addition, many processed foods contain sugar even if sugar’s inclusion seems foolish. Some restaurants and food manufacturers have admitted to adding sugar to foods – especially those geared to children – to make them taste better and be more appealing. Therefore, sauces, ready-made dinners and other items may have sugar, and the consumer may not know it without reading the nutrition label. —Metro Creative

Also, it’s important to note that beverages are the leading supplier of added sugar for many people. Simply reducing the amount of juices, sports drinks and sodas in your diet can greatly reduce sugar consumption.

“We Wanted to Be Healthy, Don’t You?”

2541926-01

Dear friends, When we meet people around town, they usually say, “Oh, yeah, I know you, you’re Drs. Mike and Melissa. I’ve seen your picture in your ads. We wanted to write this letter to let you know why we are partying like it’s 1895. First, Dr. Melissa, “When I was 13 I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. My fatigue was so severe that it was all I could do to make it home at the end of the day and crawl into bed. Feeling frustrated and concerned about my health and life, for years I tried all kinds of different approaches, none of them worked! A friend of mine convinced me to give chiropractic a try. I was reluctant at first thinking that chiropractic was only for people with bad backs, but soon discovered that it was so much more… The Chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then took the time to explain to me that when the spine is not properly aligned it can interfere with the proper function of the nervous system resulting in all types of health problems because the nerve system controls all function of the body. Thatwasthecauseofmysymptoms,imbalances in my spine, which interfered with my nerves. The chiropractor then gently “adjusted” my spine using her hands. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. It made so much sense to me and worked so well that I decided to become a Chiropractor so that I could help people overcome their health challenges naturally, just as chiropractic helped with mine.” Now for Dr. Mike, “I was in a car accident in 1988 that resulted in severe leg pain (sciatica) and low back pain and had also been a migraine headache

sufferer since early childhood. After being told that I may need surgery, I got serious about seeing a chiropractor. My leg pain went away quickly and the back pain all but disappeared. And with regular chiropractic adjustments I haven’t had a migraine headache in years! Melissa and I decided to go back to school together so that we could help families live happier, healthier and more productive lives without having to depend on potentially harmful drugs or surgery for their health concerns.” “What if we had just taken medicine to cover up our symptoms? What would our health be like today? You see, we weren’t content with just eliminating symptoms, we wanted to be healthy and knew that there had to be a natural and safe way to get and stay healthy naturally.” And there is! Our three children also benefit from a wellness lifestyle. They enjoy being checked regularly and “tuned-up” when needed. And they have enjoyed incrediblyvibranthealth,thankstogoodnutrition, lots of love and regular chiropractic care. It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see us with their fatigue, arthritis, sciatica and migraines. They also come to see us for help with

back and neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, asthma/ allergies, ear infections, and poor posture, just to name a few. Some visit our office regularly to naturally promote and enhance the overall Godgiven health and wellness potential of their entire family and to stay drug-free. Here’s what some of our practice members have had to say: “I am calmer, more patient, in much less pain and my headaches are gone!” –A. Moore “Chiropractic is the best thing I have ever done for myself and my family” -S. Bylowski The body was created to self-heal and selfregulate and it does this through the nervous system. That’s why chiropractic care helps people get tremendous results. It’s as simple as that! The studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed that 99% of patients who saw a chiropractorweresatisfiedwiththeirresults.Another recent study published in the January 3, 2012 issue of the Wall Street Journal showed that chiropractic care and exercise were almost twice as effective as OTC and prescription medications for neck pain. That’s just incredible!

Many Americans are finding that their insurance benefits are being reduced. That’s where we come in. We have cost effective fee plans so that more people are able to afford the corrective care they need with or without insurance. Another way to save…studies show that chiropractic can enhance your immune capacity, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, flues, and other sicknesses. Studies also show that people actually pay less for their long-term overall health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor regularly. You Benefit from an Amazing Offer- Look, it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to find out if you might benefit from chiropractic care. *When you make an appointment before February 9th, you will receive our entire new patient exam for only $29! That’s with x-rays (if indicated), computerized spinal analysis and functional testing and a report of your findings…. the whole ball of wax. This exam could normally cost you over $200. We simply want you and your family to get checked to discover if chiropractic can help—and we don’t want price to be the reason you don’t. We provide specific and measurable results!

We are MATHES FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC “Health by Choice!” Call us at 746-5700 for your appointment. Sincerely, Drs. Mike and Melissa Mathes and the Mathes Family Chiropractic Team *Due to Federal regulations we are unable to extend this offer to recipients of any Federal Health program, such as Medicare.

Whether as their own dietary preference or for a specific health reason, many people are eschewing gluten products and leaving other people wondering if they should, too. Gluten is a type of protein that is found in grain products, including wheat, barley and rye, among other carbohydrates. Not all cereals and grains contain gluten, so it’s important to note that gluten and grain are not synonymous. Gluten is not the grain itself, but a component that gives certain grain products their chewy, bending tex-

cases, many more people are unaware that they even have celiac disease. Many other people do not suffer from celiac disease but do experience sensitivity to gluten-containing products -- everything from gastrointestinal discomfort to migraines and fatigue. According to experts from the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, much still remains unknown about gluten sensitivity, but it is clear that gluten sometimes triggers an immune response like an enemy invader in some people today. As a result, many find that avoiding gluten helps mitigate symptoms. continued on page B7 `


GLUTEN-FREE Continued from pg. 6 b

Although there are people who have legitimate reasons to avoid gluten, many are jumping on the gluten-free bandwagon simply because they believe gluten could be something evil lurking in their foods. A paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine may be at the root of this newfound fear of gluten. The paper advised that several diseases may have a root cause with gluten. Some of these diseases include: • irritable bowel syndrome • cancer • rheumatoid arthritis • anxiety and depression • dementia • epilepsy • canker sores • anemia The trouble with healthy people removing gluten from their diets is that it can cause some deficiencies. The body actually requires grains to receive the daily recommended value of certain vitamins and nutrients. These include calcium, riboflavin, folate, thiamin, iron, and fiber. Gluten, being a protein, is also a viable protein source for the body. Individuals who are vegetarians often get protein through legumes and grains. Adopting a gluten-free diet in addition to being vegetarian removes another protein source.

While there is no actual danger to eating gluten-free, doctors advise ensuring you’re getting the adequate vitamins and nutrients through other sources to compensate for the lack of nutritional value from grains. Those adopting a gluten-free diet should be careful to read product ingredients to determine if gluten is present. While key words like wheat, oats, barley, and rye indicate gluten, malt and hydrolyzed vegetable protein are also indicators that gluten is in the food. Although most traditional breads are off-limits to those with gluten sensitivity, there are many products being marketed mainstream that are made with rice or potato flour instead. Cereals made from corn and rice are good alternatives to those made with gluten-containing grains. Traditional pastas are also off-limits. People can try substituting rice noodles for wheat noodles in recipes. Gluten is not exclusive to foods, either. Beer contains wheat, so it will also have gluten. Choose wines or other liquors instead. Also, some products, like lip balm, also contain gluten. Therefore, it’s best to be aware of all gluten sources and not assume it is only relegated to foods. Although many people are adopting glutenfree lifestyles, removing the protein from your diet is only medically necessary at this point if you suffer from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. —Metro Creative

Healthier ways to cook comfort foods W

ith the arrival of the colder weather, people often turn to hearty foods to fill up and keep the body warm. Too often, however, so-called comfort foods tend to be big on fat and calories as much as they are big on flavor. With a few small ingredient changes, comfort foods can be both delicious and healthy. Just think of all those hearty and filling foods you enjoy when winter arrives. The stews, casseroles, pastas, and soups that make cold days bearable are often not the healthiest choices a person can make. The average twocup bowl of beef chili, for example, comes in

at 595 calories and 25.9 grams of fat, according to Calorie King. That’s before the addition of sour cream, cheese or bread is included. One entree of Lasagna Classico from the popular chain eatery Olive Garden weighs in at 850 calories and 47 grams of fat. Unlike the salads and sandwiches of warmer weather, comfort foods tend to be built on meats, cheeses and carbohydrate-rich ingredients. Indulging too often can mean quick weight gain and extra fat the body simply does not need. However, you do not have to give up on your favorite comfort foods; simply find ways to make them healthier.

Choose leaner meats Substitute lean cuts of meat or alternatives to reduce the fat and calories. For example, ground turkey can be substituted for ground beef in many cases.

Reduce the cheese Cut down on the amount of cheese in a recipe. In a dish like lasagna, add vegetables to the recipe to beef it up instead of extra cheese. When using cheese, opt for low- or no-fat varieties.

Use stocks for flavor
