Improbable, but enjoyable BY ANDY MCKINNEY REVIEWER

I told one of my pals that if he wanted to see a movie where the bad guys get killed in large numbers without a lot of plot to get in the way of the action, Taken 2 is the movie of the week for you. I thought to steer him to more adult fare. Instead he said “Great, that’s just what I want to see.” He is not alone this week. Taken 2 massed a huge $50 million over the weekend and a worldwide total, which includes both domestic and overseas, of $117 million. This is on a modest budget of $45 million of which a goodly portion must have gone to star Liam Neeson. When the people speak with such a unified voice I stand out of the way to avoid the stampede. The bad guys are truly the absolute dregs of human existence, soul-less Albanians who make their living enslaving women into prostitution. The head bad guy tells Neeson that his beautiful daughter will “be sent to the worst brothel we can find and be abused by the lowest kind of men.” In essence, it is a re-play of Taken, the 2008 hit with exactly the same theme. The beautiful daughter is played by the beautiful Maggie Grace who played the daughter in Taken. Movie magic has Ms. Grace looking believably like a young collegian, which was easier four years ago than today at her advanced age of 29. I thought she was about 20. Famke Janssen is back as the mom. She gets kidnapped this time instead of the daughter and has an innovative horror committed upon her innocent self. Janssen had her first acting gig on Star Trek the Next Generation and has had plenty of screen time both on TV and the movies. She stared lately as Jean Grey in the X-Men films. Liam Neeson needs no explanation. Director Oliver Megaton (Colombiana, Transporter 3) re-joins his collaborators, writers Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. All three of them worked on Colombiana, a fierce little action piece with Zoe Saldana as the vengeful killer. Besson and Kamen also co-wrote The Fifth Element, one

of my favorite movies of all time. Besson also produced Taken 2. This three saw blade action flick is very well produced. The chase sequences are good and there are a couple of excellent side-lights. One sequence has the daughter setting off hand grenades in Istanbul so captive daddy can figure out where he is by the sound. In another clever sequence Neeson tracks the bad guys to their den by remembering the sounds he heard as a captive. But well done or not it is still rubbish, outlandish and violent with improbable plot twists that are plopped in from time to time to keep the body count up. Think of The Expendables 2 done by people who can act, write, direct and produce better than most and you have the idea. But I am embarrassed to say that I quite enjoyed it. I found the bloodletting cathartic, God help me. And so did a whale of a lot of other people. The PG-13 (violence, large body count, no undue gore) film is over in one hour and 31 minutes. James Bond is coming soon for those who appreciate their bloodletting done with a little more style.

But Meryl Streep is beyond compare. She surely is the leading lady of the silver screen and will remain so just as long as she wishes to continue working. She can do more with a look or by not moving a muscle than most actresses can do with a nude love scene. She is top notch. And she is a worker. She makes loads of movies and in between she appears on both the small TV screen and live theater. I loved her performances in Julie and Julia and The Devil Wears Prada. I thought It’s Complicated, her recent romantic comedy, was beneath her talent but the public ate it up, a caution against giving too much credit to critics. This two hour and one minute drama has a lot to recommend it to seasoned citizens, who have the wisdom and the mileage to appreciate the fine writing by first timer Vanessa Taylor. Director David Frankel also directed the successful Marley and Me and the Meryl Streep vehicle The Devil Wears Prada. With a smallish $30 million budget this extra fine film has brought in a purse fattening $80 million. If you get to see this movie you will be as pleased as the newly enriched producers. Do it.

Our National Parks should be seen at least once. You want to visit the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and Yosemite. I suggest this trip to be in the spring or fall when the parks are not so crowded. Some of these parks close for winter; so be sure to check with the park service to obtain the months the National Parks are open. If you have not visited Washington, D.C. and New York City at least once, you should plan to do so. You can do these visits by organized tour or on your own. In both New York and Washington, D.C. plan to take a tour of the city. They will not be that expensive and will show you the highlights and do the parking. It’s the only way you will enjoy the experience. FUN, FABULOUS FLORIDA

I think you would find Orlando, Fla. interesting, after visiting there, rent a car and drive south to visit Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, doing an Everglades tour and heading up the West Coast of the state to Tampa, visiting the many fine towns along the way. It’s a different part of the U.S.A. there and fun to explore. Some time ago I joined the AAA Auto Club and use their maps and travel books to plan driving trips. You might look into joining yourself if you plan to do a lot of driving in the next couple of years. THE NORTHEAST AND BEYOND

The Northeast of the United States is colorful and interesting especially with its fall colors. New England is full of early American history, interesting towns and cities. October is a good month to see the blaze of gold, browns, reds and greens throughout the area. A tour might be the best way of seeing this part of our world. Alaska and Hawaii are always interesting; Hawaii for its wonderful tropical scenery and climate and fine hotels as well as fantastic beaches to sun and relax on. You can see mountains and volcanoes in one day’s drive. Alaska is best seen in the spring, summer and fall of the year. A cruise on the inside passage for seven days is a good starter visiting interesting towns along the way and perhaps Glacier Bay. OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

Recently we drove through the Canadian

Rockies to visit Jasper National Park along with Lake Louise and Banff. Everyone, if they possibly can, should visit this part of the world before cashing in. The mighty mountains, valleys and rivers are almost beyond belief. It’s expensive, but worth the time and money. New Zealand is special with its 1,100 miles of coast, beautiful farms, cities and villages. The North and South Island have their treats for the eye and belly and you should try and make this trip if at all possible. It’s a special place. While in the Pacific, try also to stop off on your way to New Zealand in the Islands of Tahiti. Visit Moorea and Bora Bora at least. These are some of the most beautiful tropical spots on earth. The Norwegian Fjords should be seen from the deck of a cruise ship. Select a cruise that visits several fjords and spends a little time in Norway, which is a wonderful and scenic country and worth the time to visit. Many cruises that visit the Norwegian Fjords also stop at St. Petersburg, Russia. This city is special because of its heritage of palaces and museums containing some of the most treasured art and craft collections in the world. Visiting the palaces is awe-inspiring. They are well kept and you can see how the royal families of Russia lived. Some of these palaces have more than 1,000 rooms. This is probably one of the most interesting cities in the world. Western Europe should be seen because of its history and because so many American families originated from there. We’re talking about the British Isles, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Holland and more. These countries have become modern while retaining some of the Old World trappings. Many travelers choose one country at a time to fully explore each. If you are thinking of one big shot, take a tour that will take you to the important locations in each country. Travel is one of the pleasures in life. Get the most out of it and have fun!

Be the ghostess with the mostess this Halloween, and throw a wickedly wonderful celebration. The entertaining experts from the Wilton Test Kitchen know all the tricks and offer plenty of treats for hosting a bone-chilling blast that will have friends and family shrieking with delight. Start by scaring up some fun with an array of graveyard goodies. Tombstone and monster-shaped sandwich cookies paired with ghostly graveyard cookies set an eerie scene. Add fang-tastic monster-faced popcorn balls, and a parade of monster pretzels - a breeze to make using a Halloween Candy Kit. Pour melted candy into monster molds, insert pretzel rods and refrigerate until set. They are the perfect hand-held treats for kids and look great on display. There’s no bones about it, a spooktacular skeleton cake will make for a boo-tiful Halloween centerpiece. Using a skeleton casket pan makes this impressive dessert - filled with fall flavors like cinnamon and apples - easy to achieve. Simply decorate with icing and watch as your skeleton comes back from the grave. For added fright, surround the coffin with Spooky Pop Cupcakes - swirled with brightly-colored icing and things that go bump in the night. Just be sure to pair sweets with a be”witch”ing beverage and you’ll be caught in a web of friends all evening long. All of these and other terrifyingly-terrific project ideas, supplies and more are available at

OCTOBER 10, 2012 • RIM REVIEW | 7



It was spring, 1963, and we were hiking up the canyon along the east Verde River from our cabin, which is at the end of the private land. The canyon slopes gently upward until the last 1,500-foot ascent rises sharply to the top of the Mogollon Rim. We had been irresistibly STAN BROWN called by the wilderness, and decided to sit in silence. We listened as birds darted about and watched a water ouzel do its dance. The tassel eared squirrels scurried up and down waving their long, full tails, and we whispered to each other about the awesome beauty of this place. Our meditation was interrupted by the roar of a diesel engine. Rousing ourselves, we followed a deer trail to an opening where we beheld a giant Caterpillar tractor widening the old pioneer’s trail, pushing giant boulders into a wash. We were hypnotized by this intrusion into our sanctuary. Suddenly a sharp “crack” echoed against the canyon walls, and an ancient Douglas fir tree snapped wildly into a severe lean. The “Cat” had clipped the mighty tree with its deadly blade. An eerie look of power crossed the face of the driver as he prepared to finish his mistake. One push of a gear and the great tree came down, torn up at the roots and felling two lesser trees in its descent. I felt I had witnessed an execution. This operation was a small part of the Phelps-Dodge Mining Company’s plan to bring water over the Rim from its newly created Blue Ridge Reservoir. They were required to replace water used from high up in the Salt River drainage for the growing mine operation at Clifton-Morenci. This was the third such project since World War II when increased copper supplies were critical. The first diverted water from the Black River was in exchange for the company building the Horseshoe Dam on the Verde River to store the extra flow. In 1952 the company replaced yet more water by building the Show Low, or Jaques Dam, pumping water over the Rim into the Salt River for storage at Roosevelt. Now the third exchange agreement between Phelps-Dodge and the Salt River Project resulted in building the Blue Ridge Dam on East Clear Creek, bringing water from the Little Colorado River drainage into the East Verde River. From there it would eventually end up in the Salt River at Phoenix. The plan was unique. The reservoir at Blue Ridge would have a tunnel-aqueduct bored into the mountain at a 7,000-foot altitude, and the water, carried by gravity, would empty into the East Verde at about the 6,000-foot level. All summer and fall the

mighty Caterpillars plowed their way through the forest and along the river to make a viable road for equipment needed to drill the nine-mile aqueduct through the Rim. For the next year we watched with mixed emotions as the drilling took place far upriver, and a narrow gauge railroad for hauling rock was installed. However, the Rim fought back just as it had for the pipedreamers in 1883 who attempted a tunnel in the Rim. That time they planned for a railroad to connect Flagstaff with southern Arizona. Then they ran out of money. This time the ground was too unstable, the fault lines too numerous, and the springs of water ever-present. A unique alternative was planned. A ten-mile, 33-inch pipeline was laid over the Rim, causing much more disruption of the forested canyon. Water flowed out of the reservoir through a 3,500foot tunnel that had been bored below the surface of the rising Blue Ridge Lake. Then eight electric pumps drew the water up a 435-foot shaft to where it was deposited in the pipeline. Gravity carried the water down the mountain to a small hydroelectric generating plant before being discharged into the river. These turbines produced enough electricity to operate the pumps on top of the Rim. By the summer of 1965 a gushing flow of water from East Clear Creek was racing past our cabin, at least quadrupling its normal year-around flow. We loved it, and felt ready to forgive the damage to the forest. The increased water acted as a giant evaporative cooler in summer; Game and Fish rangers paid weekly visits to our cabin neighborhood to plant more than 200 rainbow trout, a boon for all the grandchildren to catch their limit. Included in the agreement with Phelps Dodge was an option for the Salt River Project to buy the project when the mining company no longer needed it. This happened in 2005. Immediately Payson and other communities located near the pipeline vied to buy water rights from SRP. Years of red tape and many hoops to jump through have been negotiated since then, and a 16-inch pipeline is planned to transfer the water from the large pipeline on the upper East Verde to Payson. Obviously this requires yet more uprooting of the forest under the Rim, but every step of the entire project, from start to finish, has meant compromising the values many people hold dear. At the time the SRP purchased the project from Phelps-Dodge the name of the dam and reservoir was changed to C. C. Cragin, in honor of SRP’s General Superintendent in the 1920s and 1930s. He was a visionary for the various dam sites on the Salt River and for the importance of using SRP’s water management to generate electricity. The Cragin Reservoir has a surface of 100 acres with an average depth to 40 feet. It is stocked with trout and the fishing is good. However, the shoreline is very steep, and a boat or other floating device is

needed. There are restrooms and camping areas at the lake. It is with nostalgia that we recall lazy days at the cabin, when the gentle flow of the upper East Verde made it easy to call to our neighbors across the river, planning a potluck with leftovers after a weekend of company, or a get-together around a campfire. In those days the children could safely play in the river, building little dams, fishing by hand, or just enjoying a splash under the nearby waterfall. The “big water”

changed that, but again the joy of rushing mountain water and the weekly stocking of trout make it easy to adjust. The “big water” will continue to run its course down to the East Verde until enough water has been drawn and the system shuts down. However with each return of a large flow many up and down the river will rejoice – except when it floods. NEXT: Bray Creek

Reg McCormick’s gourd art, at left, is called carving, but in many cases appears more like sculpting. Ron and Linda Harkins work with a variety of media in their jewelry designs (above). This Native American-inspired piece combines a choker and breast plate featuring turquoise, metal, feathers and more.

Three new artists in PAL fall show Extraordinary works in watercolors, acrylics, oils, jewelry, sculpture and more will give the Mazatzal Casino Event Center a golden glow this month. The annual Payson Art League ARToberFEST on Oct. 19, 20 and 21 features 22 artists, including three new members: Linda and Ron Harkins, Payson; Reg McCormick, Surprise; and Joseph Prow, Payson. To see their works in glorious color, find this story on our Web site and click on the picture gallery. Ron and Linda design and create jewelry for all tastes and ages. McCormick carves breathtaking sculptures from gourds. Prow handcrafts both decorative and functional pieces with wood. RON AND LINDA HARKINS

Not only are Ron and Linda Harkins new to the PAL ARToberFEST, they’re new to the Rim Country. The couple moved here a year ago — as of Nov. 1 — from the Valley. Before that they’d lived in Prescott. “We wanted to go back to a town where we grew up and Payson is it,” Linda said, adding Prescott has changed too much over the years and is no longer the hometown they remember. Before Ron and Linda became jewelry artists, they were rockhounds, Linda said. Both have been collecting rocks and gemstones for years. “There was a time when you could even find pottery shards around Prescott,” she said. Eventually the rocks, gemstones and pottery shards inspired her to conceptualize jewelry. She comes up with the ideas and Ron crafts them into reality.

They work with gold, silver and brass, along with the gemstones, beads, leather, feathers, Swarovski Crystals, stones, shells and much more. Linda said their designs include everything from whimsical to elegant, with everything from business accessorizing to pieces kids would love. Ron and Linda plan to have around 300 pieces at the ARToberFEST event, so guests can see the scope of their work. The time it takes to craft the jewelry varies from a couple of hours for the children’s bracelets to a month or more for the works in gold and silver. Linda and Ron have seriously pursued their jewelrymaking enterprise since about 2006. “I started doing it for myself and then started selling it online,” Linda said. The selling didn’t start until just about every room in their home had their work everywhere. In addition to their online sales, the couple has participated in about seven arts and crafts fairs over the years, primarily in Apache Junction, plus a few in Prescott. To see and learn more go online to REG MCCORMICK

When most people hear someone does “gourd art” they probably think of painted pieces. Reg McCormick might add paint to his gourd art, but what he creates is far beyond painted work. He calls it carving. When you see McCormick’s work you see sculpture — magnificent sculpture. At first glance, it is hard to tell his medium is

gourds. He came into his gift in a roundabout way. Originally from Michigan, he and his wife, Dorothy, spent 10 years traveling the country in a motor home. Dorothy said it was on the road that Reg started carving. “Starting with woodcarving, pottery, stained glass and carving ostrich eggs, the adventure has led me to where my true joy is — creating art with gourds. I feel such passion in my heart and soul during the entire design process. Having always created with my hands, I find each piece to have its own unique individuality and character, with the final result being a one-of-a-kind creation,” Reg says on his Web site. McCormick said he has only taken a couple of classes over the years. He is mostly self-taught. Fellow artist Pat Stacy, a member of PAL and another participant in the show, convinced McCormick to try the exhibit and sale. “We met with the PAL people and they were very nice,” he said. He plans to bring about 35 pieces to the show. Prices range from $65 to $1,600. Both Reg and Dorothy are cancer survivors, he said. They belong to West Valley Cancer Connection, a notfor-profit 501-3c organization that brings resources to the area, and is partnered with Cancer Treatment Centers of America. As members of the group, a portion of the sales of McCormick’s work is donated to help it in its mission. CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

To learn and see more about McCormick and his work, go online to JOSEPH PROW

Prow first learned to work with wood in high school. Later he had the opportunity to install Amish cabinetry and learned from the perfection of their cabinetry and wood crafting. The wood Prow uses in his work has been collected from the many places he and his wife Ann have visited. “I can tell you the story of where each piece of wood I have collected comes from,” Prow says on his Web site Visit the site to learn and see more. THE VETERANS

The 2012 PAL ARToberFEST will feature many familiar Rim Country artists. They are the veterans of both the art league and its big fall show and the spring event that invites guests into the studios of area artists. Among the veterans in this year’s show are Angie Cockle, Don Harmon, Rock Newcomb, C.M. Okerwall, Glenda Roark, Georgianne Smolenski and Jim Strong. Roark’s work will be showcased as the show’s featured artist. She started doing oils landscapes and still life, but for the past decade or so has turned her talent to abstracts. Roark has also worked in ceramics, glass fusing, and teaming up with her husband, Bob, does sterling silver jewelry.

Morris, Matalyn Gardner, Solveig “Sally” Myers, Melanie Capps, Sharon Kennedy, George Lewis and Ann Christensen. The Payson Art League is a nonprofit organization that strives to broaden the awareness and appreciation of arts in the Rim Country. In support of this program, a piece of art created by each artist is donated to the PAL Education Fund and displayed for raffle. Raffle tickets are available at the ARToberFEST event and the spring studio tour. The proceeds benefit the arts in area schools and books for local elementary libraries. Payson Art League meetings are open to all. For more information, call Edna Harmon at (928) 474-5554.

Boo-tiful Halloween carvings lines, cut the features into the watermelon and remove excess rind. To create a 3D effect with the features after you have cut them, push gently on the flaps of rind from inside the watermelon. (You can use toothpicks to prop the rind, if you want.) A safe, battery-operated lamp can be firmly placed inside the watermelon to provide a haunting glow. Place the circular piece of rind that you reserved back on top of the watermelon and your Jack O’Melon is ready to be displayed.

This Halloween, why not put a fun twist on pumpkin carving by making some Jack O’Melons? Watermelons carve up boo-tifully, and you can eat the fruit right away, making it easy to scare up some delicious Halloween fun. This Bat Jack O’Melon, Tiki Mask, and Jack O’Melon man can add a frightfully fun touch to a Halloween party - and the whole family can help carve them.

• Have the watermelon at room temperature when you carve. The cuts will be easier to make. You can chill the watermelon in the refrigerator after cutting and before serving. • After you’ve drawn the design on the rind, insert toothpicks in key places to use as guides for your cuts. • Use a sharp knife with a pointed tip - the sharper the knife, the easier and cleaner the cuts will be. • When attaching cut pieces on the watermelon to make your design, use round toothpicks or skewers. Flat toothpicks will often break due to the weight of the piece or the thickness of the rind. BAT JACK O’MELON

2 round watermelons, preferably yellow, for the body Kitchen and paring knives Cutting board Green dry-erase marker (preferably washable) Large bowl and spoon Candy corns 4 to 6-inch wooden skewers Toothpicks Candle or light Wash watermelons under cool running water and pat dry. On a cutting board, place the roundest watermelon on its side and cut off a ?- to ?(half)-inch of the stem end, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. This will provide a sturdy base. Using dry-erase marker, draw two eyes, an oval for a nose and a smiling mouth that would resemble a bat. Draw two ears and an outline of a forehead, continuing the line around to make the top for the bat that will be removed. Use a knife to carefully cut away inside of the eyes, nose and mouth and also around the top of watermelon. Remove top and hollow out watermelon with spoon, reserving fruit to use in a fruit salad or punch. On the second watermelon, use dry-erase marker to draw 2 bat wings (the top of the wings will have 2 points and the bottom of the wings will have 2 points.) Use knife to carefully cut wings out, reserving inside of watermelon to make fruit salad or punch. Attach wings to side of watermelon bat with wooden skewers, and use toothpicks to attach candy-corn as fangs. Insert a candle to light up your bat.

Next use paring knife to cut out the inside mouth area, leaving room for the teeth. Next cut individual teeth, using the same small paring knife, and use a spoon to dig out a large area of flesh for the mouth cavity. Next carve out eyes, digging a deep cavity in each, for drama.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’re eager to Ram headfirst into that new project. But before you do, find out why some of your colleagues might not appear to be as gung-ho about it as you are. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) All that dedicated hard work you’ve been putting in pays off better than you expected. So go ahead, reward yourself with something befitting a beauty-loving Bovine. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It’s a good time to take on that new challenge. And if your selfconfidence is sagging, instead of telling yourself why you can’t do it, list all the reasons why you can. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is one time when you might want to put some distance between you and the job at hand. It will give you a better perspective on what you’ve done and still need to do. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Resist that occasional lapse into Leonine laziness that sometimes overtakes the Big Cat. Don’t cut corners. Do the job right at this time, or you might have to redo it later. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You know how you like to do things. And that’s fine. But watch that you don’t impose your methods on others. A current financial crunch soon eases. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone might try to take advantage of your generosity. But before your sensitivity toward others overwhelms your good sense, check his or her story out carefully. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your strong Scorpian sense of fairness lets you see all sides of a dispute. Continue to remain impartial as you help each person work through his or her particular grievance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Trust your keen Sagittarian insight to help you see through an offer that might not be all it claims. A closer look could reveal disturbing elements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) With the Goat exhibiting a more dominant aspect these days, you could find it easier to make your case in front of even the most skeptical audience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Take things nice and easy as you continue to build up your energy reserves for a big change that’s coming with the full Hunter’s Moon on Oct. 29. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Recent news from someone you trust could help you make an important decision. Also, be prepared to confront an upcoming change in a personal situation. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be firm in your own views, but also flexible enough to welcome the views of others. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Gout diet not too restrictive BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. 2012 NORTH AMERICA SYND., INC.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you give me information on the low-purine diet for gout? — C.J. ANSWER: Years ago, before effective gout medicines were available, diet was the major treatment for gout. Now, with modern medicines, diet doesn’t play such a big role. Elevated blood uric acid sets the stage for a gout attack. Uric acid infiltrates joints as needle-shaped crystals. Most uric acid comes from the recycling of body cells, a daily process. Only a small amount comes from food. It’s still wise for gout patients to take it easy on foods that are high in purines, but they don’t have to be as strict about diet as former patients had to be. Purines are the substances that produce uric acid. Gout patients ought to scale back a bit on meat and fish. Anchovies, organ meats like liver and sweetbreads, and gravies have lots of purines in them, and should be taken only once in a while, if at all. Patients need to watch the amount of alcohol they drink. Beer, in particular, often triggers a gout attack. High-fructose corn syrup and table sugar ought to be used in moderation. Soft drinks have a large amount of high-fructose corn syrup in them. These are the only foods that bear some watching. Milk and other dairy products lessen the chance of gout attacks. All fruits and vegetables can be eaten without any restriction. Weight loss is important for overweight gout patients. That’s about all you need to know about the low-purine diet for gout. The gout pamphlet explains this quite common and often misunderstood illness. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 302W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the printed name and address of the recipient. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have gotten my weight to a point where I am happy with it. I still have fat bulging at my sides. I think these are called love handles. I don’t love them. I don’t think that losing more weight will rid me of them. What do you think of liposuction? Is it risky? — A.S. ANSWER: Liposuction removes fat from fat deposits beneath the skin. It doesn’t remove deep deposits of fat, the fat that surrounds organs in the abdomen, the fat that creates most metabolic troubles. It’s the deep fat that’s associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Your dieting should have taken care of that fat. Liposuction surgery is cosmetic surgery, so you’d better check with your insurance if you need it to cover the procedure. All surgical procedures, including liposuction, carry a risk. Complications from it, however, are not frequent. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: As I understand it, drinking coffee makes a person’s blood sugar rise, and then insulin has to be released by the body. Does drinking coffee overstimulate insulin production and contribute to diabetes, especially if a person is prone to diabetes? — T.F. ANSWER: Coffee has turned into a health drink. It’s believed to prevent diabetes. It’s also said to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
