Football team members honor own at banquet By Lizzie Spier Warrior football team members wrapped-up their season on Monday at the annual end-ofyear banquet in the commons. Despite a disappointing 3-5 regular season and a first-round loss in the playoffs, first-year head coach Chad Stadem said he and the team have learned some valuable lessons that will help them in upcoming seasons. “What I have learned is that winning or losing doesn’t determine success,” Stadem said. “Success is overcoming adversity and giving your best effort at all times. I was very proud of our guys this season, especially in the last game. We were very successful this season in carrying on the Warrior tradition of total effort.” At the banquet, many Warriors were credited for their hard work, including senior Dan Marlette who was selected by coaches as AllState, All-Metro Conference, Academic All-State and Co-Captain of the All-City team. Others selected for the All-City Team included seniors Zac Freese, Ethan Lynn, Austin Heins, Alex

Kennedy assassinated 50 years ago today By Maria Recio McClatchy Bureau (MCT) Fifty years after the slaying of the nation’s 35th president, John F. Kennedy, in Dallas, the question of who killed JFK is still a provocative question for many. Conspiracy theories began swirling almost immediately after Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, and have never really stopped. A spate of new books re-examining that moment in anticipation of the 50th

anniversary has revived some theories, tried to squelch others and found intriguing new details of botched investigations or deliberate concealment by authorities. There’s a ready audience: Sixty-one percent of the American people believe that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone in killing the president, according to the most recent Gallup poll, released last week. While the percentage of those who believe in a conspiracy is the lowest since the late 1960s, it confirms

the public’s ongoing doubts about the “lone gunman” theory. The likely conspirators? The poll found that 13 percent believe the Mafia and 13 percent think the federal government was involved; 7 percent named the CIA; 5 percent each believe Cuban leader Fidel Castro, “special interests” and political groups were responsible; the Ku Klux Klan, then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson and the Soviet Union each drew 3 percent. The random-sample

poll of 1,039 people 18 and older was conducted Nov. 7-10. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. The belief in a conspiracy hasn’t diminished in nearly 50 years of polling. Doubts also persist about the findings of the Warren Commission, which was created by Johnson, after he became president, to investigate the assassination and was led by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. Kennedy will be remembered in a special ceremony today in Dallas.

Sugar, salt may be next on FDA’s list By Melissa Healy Los Angeles Times (MCT) Now that the Food and Drug Administration has moved to banish most trans fats from the nation’s diet, some public health advocates are hopeful that two other beloved ingredients— sugar and salt—will be subject to similar scrutiny.

Science Friday “Sodium is next,” said Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, a Harvard University epidemiologist and cardiologist at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In acting to remove artificial trans fats from the food supply, Mozaffarian said, the FDA has acknowledged a scientific consensus that they are hazardous to the public’s health. The same case could be said about excess dietary sodium, and that should be an equally powerful prod to FDA action, he said. Tom Neltner, an analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council in Washington, D.C., said that sugar, too, may become a target in the wake of Thursday’s FDA action. In regulating food additives, the FDA has historically focused on removing chemicals that cause death and acute injury, Neltner said. Now the agency has demonstrated that it’s ready to step in when a food additive contributes to chronic diseases that kill many people slowly. “I hope this presages a new willingness to regulate with an eye to these chronic illnesses,” Neltner said. Even compared with saturated fat — a frequent fellow traveler — trans fatty acid is a bad actor, knocking the blood’s lipid levels into dangerous territory on two fronts. Not only does it raise levels of LDL cholesterol, the bad kind; trans fat consumption depresses levels of HDL cholesterol, which is considered protective against heart disease.
