ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? by Deborah Stumpf
ISSUE 516 • SEPTEMBER 19, 2011
“I’ve experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows. I think to really appreciate anything you have to be at both ends of the spectrum.” - John Elway
his summer, football season looked a bit iffy, as negotiations between players and owners failed several times during the National Football League lockout. However, the NFL and the players ﬁnally scored a win-win just weeks before pre-season began. So … are you ready for some football?

baseball as America’s most popular sport, but many polls have football on top.
Fall is the season when Aspens turn a glittery golden; when the first snow of the season is looming; and when diehard football fans come to life.
WOMEN MAKE A PASS And save a space on the couch or bar stool for the ardent female fan.
In the old days, football fans were predominantly male – their wives or girlfriends referred to as “football widows.” But into the 60s and 70s, women found themselves in the middle of the huddle, as their roles evolved from the sidelines to the grid iron.
Until Feb. 8, 2010, the last episode (1983) of the acclaimed television series “M-AS-H” was in the U.S. history books as the most-watched T.V. program of all time. But New Orleans’ 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the 2010 Super Bowl downed the “M-A-S-H” record, generating even more viewers – about 106.5 million.
More than 375,000 women attend professional football games each weekend; more than 45 million watch football games on television.
In 2011, Super Bowl XLV – pitting the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Green Bay Packers – raised the bar, with viewership at 111 million.
Women are not only watching football, they’re also playing. The Women’s Professional Football League is the original league for women’s professional football in the U.S. The WPFL sponsored its first game in 1999, with just two teams: the Lake Michigan Minx and the
In 2010, an average of 17.9 million people watched each game during the football season. It’s a coin toss between football and
Minnesota Vixens. Other pro football leagues followed, and just this year, the Women’s Football Alliance was formed to bring teams from coast to coast (and Mexico) under the same umbrella. The WFA now has 62 teams. The other prominent league is the Independent Women’s Football League, with more than 41 teams across the U.S. that include more than 1,600 players. From the Washington D.C. Divas (WFA) to the Southern California Breakers (IWFL), women have donned helmets and shoulder pads and have played much like their male counterparts – full-contact football with NFL rules, except most of their games are played in the spring. While women continue to touch down on the football field, men have been dominating the sport for years. From the greats like the Denver Broncos’ John Elway to the … well, who cares about the rest, right? From

YOUâ€™VE GOTTA LAUGH â€˘ During Super Bowl XXXVIII, Mark Roberts disrupted play when he streaked across the field (completely naked). He was â€œtackledâ€? by Matt Chatham of the New England Patriots. But Roberts didnâ€™t get the publicity the half-time show garnered. The infamous incident where Justin Timberlake ripped off part of Janet Jacksonâ€™s clothing and exposed her breast outscored the nude runner. It must have been the reason Roberts returned naked to streak the ďŹ eld in 2007 when the Miami Dolphins played the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium in England. â€˘ Superman quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning, hosted â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€? and outdid himself. He was so funny and well-received that he could have a future in comedy. And thatâ€™s a good thing since Manning is sidelined this season for an undetermined number of games because of neck surgery. â€˘ When he was playing with the Cincinnati Bengals, wide receiver Chad Johnson changed his name to match the number on his jersey. Johnson became Chad Ochocinco or Chad No. 85 in Spanish. When he was transferred to the New England Patriots, Ochocinco got lucky when another team member relinquished his No. 85 jersey to Ochocinco. Otherwise, he might have had to change his name again to something like TresTres.

• The NFL brings in about $1 billion in annual revenues and is the world’s richest professional sports league. • The Dallas Cowboys are worth $1.5 billion – the most valued sports franchise in the world. • The Carolina Panthers hold the record for the most consecutive games lost in one season (15 in 2001). • Monday Night Football went on air for the first time in 1970. Howard Cosell, Keith Jackson and Don Meredith were the hosts. • On Nov. 23, 1970, announcer Howard Cosell slurred his words during the entire first half of the Monday Night Football broadcast. At half-time, Cosell vomited on co-announcer Don Meredith’s cowboy boots. • It takes 3,000 cows to supply leather for a year’s worth of NFL footballs. • On the Monday following Super Bowl Sunday, antacid sales increase by 20 percent. • Other than Thanksgiving, Americans consume the most food on Super Bowl Sunday.
LOCKER ROOM TALK Sometimes, players and coaches put their “foot (ball)” in their mouth. • When asked if he preferred grass or Astroturf, New York Jets’ quarterback Joe Namath replied, “I don’t know, I’ve never smoked Astroturf.” • Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, announcing a game on ESPN, said, “Nobody in football should be called genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein!”

• Former New Orleans Saints running back George Rogers told one interviewer, “I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first.” • As a former head coach for the former Houston Oilers (now the Tennessee Titans), Bill Peterson might have known a lot about football but he was in dire need of a language course. He once told his team to “line up alphabetically by height.” And trying to inspire them, he said, “Men, I want you to just think of one word all season. One word and one word only: Super Bowl.”

LIFE ENERGY FLOW TAI YI: LAUGHTER
ow often do people choose to become caught up in survival type issues instead of becoming caught up in laughter? Life is about many serious issues, but life can also be about choosing to live in laughter. There is no doubt that there are many serious issues all around. The continued recession, national debt, changing and restricting laws, flu viruses, poor quality education, increased cancer and other disease rates are just some of the concerns. However, people always have the option of looking at the world with a perceived sense of helplessness and victim mentality or with a proactive, passionate, and compassionate manner. It is always a matter of personal choice. Life Energy Flow Tai Yi offers a person, who is seeking balance, to find that balance. The point of life is to live in a balance of compassion, love, self-fulfillment, and selfintegrity. The true state of compassion is the ability to offer assistance without controlling the outcome. The true state of love is automatic acceptance and understanding. The true state of self-fulfillment and
month of September.
self-integrity is in knowing when to shift the main priority to one’s own healing pathway, or rather when a person chooses to heal the most important relationship; and that is with oneself.
WHAT’S OLD THAT’S NEW?
Everyone creates their own reality, and unfortunately, many choose to create a reality of pain and suffering. What does it take for a person to see his or her potential a little differently? That person first needs to examine false and limiting beliefs that keep him or herself in denial of what true creativity can create in the form of mental, emotional, and physical abundance.
Antiques & Collectables
Family Tradition Since 1943
After that person has examined false and limiting beliefs that, ultimately originated in childhood, he or she can determine what choices have been made based on those false beliefs. When that is understood the person can choose to make alternative choices…choices that create laughter and love.

That laughter becomes contagious. It grows with a sense of joy and purpose. When a person makes a choice to live in a state of laughter, purpose, and love, the result is the creation of laughter, purpose, and love. The intent or choice creates the outcome. The ultimate result is a life of joy, purpose, fulfillment, and self-integrity, which is another way to say ‘living in balance.’
NOW WOULD BE THE RIGHT TIME!

There are several treatments that address uncovering false beliefs and uncovering a person’s life purpose and blocks to feeling passion and joy. Tai Yi treatments assist in removing the blocks or the barriers to seeing the blocks so that the person can make new choices.

• On Sept. 22, 1598, English playwright Ben Jonson is indicted for manslaughter after a duel. He was very nearly hanged, but his ability to read and write saved him. He claimed “benefit of clergy,” which allowed him to be sentenced by the lenient ecclesiastical courts. Jonson was as famous in his time as Shakespeare.
• On Sept. 23, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt is forced to defend his dog’s honor and his own reputation. Critics had circulated a story claiming that Roosevelt had accidentally left Fala behind while visiting the Aleutian Islands earlier that year. They accused the president of sending a Navy destroyer, at taxpayer expense of up to $20 million, to go back and pick up the dog.
• On Sept. 21, 1866, H.G. Wells, pioneer of science fiction, is born in Bromley, England. In 1895, he published his classic novel “The Time Machine,” about a man who journeys to the future. The book was a success, as was “The War of the Worlds” (1898).
• On Sept. 19, 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel in Nevada. The test was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob.
• On Sept. 20, 1881, Chester Arthur becomes third president to serve in one year. The year began with Rutherford B. Hayes in ofﬁce. Hayes served out his term and turned over the reins to James A. Garfield. Four months later, Garfield was shot by an assassin but did not die until Sept. 19. Vice President Arthur was then sworn in as president.
• On Sept. 25, 1981, Sandra Day O’Connor becomes the first female U.S. Supreme Court justice in history when she is sworn in by Chief Justice Warren Burger. After graduating from Stanford law school in the early 1950s, no law firm in California would hire her because she was a woman.

hen it comes to saving a life, how far would you go?
We know what CPR is: CardioPulmonary Resuscitation. Itâ€™s used to restart a heart that has stopped. It involves lot of hard work pumping a patientâ€™s chest, alternating with another person to force air into the lungs and counting breaths. Of course, itâ€™s a worthwhile effort, and many of us have taken CPR classes to learn how to do it.

If youâ€™re interested in learning this technique, there are three steps before you begin. Go online to www. heart.arizona.edu, and youâ€™ll ďŹ nd a link right on the front page. Watch the video. Step two is to ask your doctor if you should learn this technique to use on anyone in your family who might have a heart condition, or on anyone else. Step three is to find a class in your community. While the video is better than nothing, for something this serious, a class is the best way to learn it properly.

Now thereâ€™s an alternative to standard Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation. Itâ€™s called Continuous Chest
The new method focuses on keeping blood pumping through the heart and to the brain (notice the â€œcerebralâ€? part of the name), which is crucial for the survival of the victim. It doesnâ€™t do much good if you get the heart started but the brain has been without blood for too long.

immunized before your granddaughter gets her chickenpox vaccine, and then wait to hold her and care for her for two or three weeks after you have the shot.
QUESTIONS ABOUT SHINGLES VACCINE DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 59year-old female who had a severe case of chickenpox as a child. It has been recommended that I get a shingles vaccination after my 60th birthday. However, my husband never had chickenpox, and I have a 1-month-old granddaughter. Are my husband and granddaughter at risk for becoming infected when I get the vaccine? -- J.Z. ANSWER: The shingles vaccine Zostavax contains live but weakened virus. Transmission of the vaccine virus from someone who just received it is theoretically possible, but actually is a rare event. Your husband’s chances of catching the vaccine virus are close to zero. Although your husband says he never had chickenpox, 99 percent of adults bear evidence in their blood that they did have childhood chickenpox. Many of these people have no recollection of being sick. That might be because the infection was so mild that they never knew they were infected. Furthermore, all adults, whether they remember they had chickenpox or not, are urged to have the vaccine after their 60th birthday. Your husband can get the shot along with you. As far as your 1-month-old grandchild goes, her chance of catching the virus from a recently immunized person is small. However, you can eliminate the risk completely by waiting to have your immunization until your granddaughter gets her chickenpox immunization at 12 months; you don’t have to be immunized on the day you turn 60. Or you can be

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 78year-old woman with a torn rotator cuff and arthritis in my left shoulder. My doctor says nothing can be done short of a complete shoulder replacement. Is this true? Should I get a second opinion? -- E.W.
Affiliated with Tri-Lakes Center for Family Development
ANSWER: The rotator cuff is a “cuff” (much like shirt cuff) of four tendons that arise from four back muscles. Those tendons swing around the shoulder joint to hold it in place. Small rotator-cuff tears heal on their own. Large tears require surgical correction. Some tears call for shoulder joint replacement, especially when the joint itself is arthritic. More than 23,000 Americans will have their shoulder joints replaced this year. Almost all will have gratifying results. They’ll be able to move their shoulder without pain. The shoulder has an excellent blood supply, so healing this joint is much faster than healing a knee or hip replacement. Furthermore, the shoulder, unlike the knee or hip, doesn’t have to support body weight, another point in its favor.

Find the Folate Keep your blood pressure from climbing with a healthy helping of folate. Women who consumed ample amounts of folate every day had the lowest risk of hypertension in a recent study. Everyone should get about 700 micrograms daily to boost blood vessel health. Seek out folate-rich treats, such as asparagus spears, artichokes, and spinach, in your produce aisle. Fortiﬁed pasta, breads, and cereals also are a good source.
A second opinion is always worthwhile. If the second doctor agrees that you need a new joint, I say go for it.

THERE ARE GOOD FATS AND OILS
he media has done an excellent job of educating the public on the pitfalls of too much fat. Yet, good fats (including Omega 3s) are actually necessary for good health. Let’s tour the ‘fat’ world and identify what to avoid and what to include in your daily routine.
Low fat and high sugar. When reducing fat, companies often increase sugar to improve ‘taste.’ Read labels! In fact,
Cheryl Townlsey, ND 719-487-3171 www.lifestyleforhealth.com *Restrictions apply. For complete details, contact your ViSalus Independent Distributor.
INCREASE List Expeller pressed oils. Most vegetable oils are made with solvents. The light color of vegetable oils usually indicates they have been highly processed instead of ‘pressed.’ The ‘default’ is solvent – check the label. If it is expeller pressed, it will say so on the label.
Hydrogenated fats are just not good for you. These fats include margarine, shortening, and any food using them (shown on labels).
Fit Into Your Favorite Jeans Again
a lack of the good fats often increases sugar cravings and weight gain.
These essential fatty acids primarily come from flaxseed and fish. These oils are essential for the hormone system, brain function and reduction of inflammation. If you take capsules, it takes 10-15 capsules to equal 1 TBL of liquid and 1-2 TBL/day is needed for the average person. I recommend Barlean’s Swirl flax and fish oil products (found in
any health food store or at Lifestyle for Health) as it is very easily assimilated, is liquid and tastes amazingly good!
farm-raised) cold-water fish such as salmon, halibut and cod. If possible, consume ﬁsh 2-4 times/week.
The often-maligned coconut is actually a great source of good fats. Coconut oil is great topically for skin and hair as well as for baking and cooking. Coconut oil supports your immune system and cardiovascular health as well as your metabolism. And it imparts a great flavor in your favorite recipe. Again, Barleans is my brand of choice. LFH offers a special price to all Snippetz readers - - ask for the special when you call 719-488-5688.
This wonderful food is not only a great source of good fats, it is also a great source of fiber. Guacamole is easy to make - -- enjoy it with your favorite veggies. Jicama is a crunchy vegetable that goes really well with guacamole. You can find jicama in any grocery store - - pick one with smooth skin (which will be removed) over wrinkled skin.
Cold-water Fish Increase your consumption of wild (not

ave you ever found a fresh apple in a field of dried up timbers? Well of course not. That’s because the freshness of the apple depends on life, and if all surrounding stumps are brittle with death, then the situation finds itself nearly impossible; nearly. Some would say that the Tri-Lakes area has no music scene, or certainly not a living one. But if you look closely enough, somewhere in the baron land of frozen notes and dried up rhythms you’ll find a place with noise. Pitch and cadence live there, and they’ll invite you in to hear a jingle. Pinz Bowling Center is this place. Because in bi-monthly fashion, Pinz presents a series of shows called “Concerts in the Dark”. An eclectic blend of original music acts will perform at Pinz in what has always been previously referred to as – the dining room. The series takes place on Sundays from 7pm-9pm. Its greatest features are the following: Concerts in the Dark is FREE. Yes, the gift of music is without charge.
While you turn in your donation, pick up a copy of the APPR study/discussion guide and join us in our community read of the The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, one of the selections for this year’s All Pikes Peak Reads program. Please visit your local library to read and contribute!
Will you be a part of that song, by listening and observing? Will you support our artists in a statement that music matters and so do we? Will you take a stroll into the dark? There’s music there.

Colorado Springs, Colo. (September 13, 2011) – It’s a fight to the death … against hunger in the Pikes Peak region! Pikes Peak Library District is holding a food drive in conjunction with its All Pikes Peak Reads program at all 14 of its El Paso County locations to benefit Care and Share. The drive, called “Hunger is No Game,” runs from September 10 through October 8 and residents are encouraged to donate their non-perishable goods at donation barrels that will be located at Pikes Peak Library District locations and area Wal-Mart stores.
The Tri-Lakes area is a growing one, and with every inch it stretches it takes on new responsibilities. We have new restaurants spreading their dishes around, and bigger department stores imposing their will. We’ve seen new trails for our tires to tread, and local solutions to our health and hair. It’s time to be entertained. Concerts in the Dark is the beginning of the end. Our once truck stop is becoming an actual place on the map. And when a traveler looks onto this map, and traces his finger across our dot, it would be nice of him to stop one moment and listen. Because somewhere in the sounds of nature and the whistle of the lakes, he’ll hear a song, written by a local; and for a moment, his journey will feel at peace.

APPR is a community-wide reading program that seeks to strengthen the power of literacy across social, cultural, and generational boundaries. In 2011, Pikes Peak Library District is exploring books that delve into film, photography, and the influence of the media on our lives: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Shallows by Nicholas Carr, The Pioneer Photographer by William Henry Jackson and Howard Driggs, and The Landry News by Andrew Clements (elementary school). APPR receives aid from 30 community organizations, 13 public school districts, and private schools, and partners with The Gazette, Colorado Springs Independent, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Colorado College, UCCS, iT’Z Family Food & Fun, Fox21/CW57, and Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado to achieve a program that stimulates minds through community interaction.

DORM ROOM DINING
any students are headed off to college for the first time. One of the downsides of college life is the dreaded “freshman 15” -- extra pounds that many students gain from poor eating habits. Forming good eating habits as a college student can help lay the foundation for how and what you eat later in life. Eating fruits and vegetables boosts your immune system and helps ward off illness; calcium helps you build bones to avoid problems later in life; and eating breakfast contributes to academic performance. But don’t forget that food is to be enjoyed! Eating and preparing foods with others builds community and can help alleviate some of the stress of college life. There are quick, easy and healthy eating options for you if you’re faced with dining in your dorm room. Don’t have a stove or oven? Don’t despair! Here are some quick, easy and healthy ideas for dorm rooms with only a small refrigerator and a microwave. --Combine mashed fresh or frozen fruit, yogurt and fruit juice for a breakfast smoothie. You don’t need a blender -- just put the ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously. --Make a fresh salad with pre-packaged salad greens, canned beans, nuts and a low-fat dressing. For a complete meal, add tuna or salmon in one-serving pouches, whole-wheat crackers, canned or fresh fruit and milk to the menu. --Top a fresh salad with grilled or oven-roasted chicken strips. Include fruits and milk to make this a quick meal. --A quick and ﬁlling meal could include low-sodium canned soup, whole-wheat crackers with a single serving of hummus and milk. --Another meal option is a mozzarella stick, canned threebean salad and milk. --Tasty options include canned chili. Add a fresh salad or baby carrots with hummus, fruit and milk for a complete meal. If you don’t have time to make a fresh salad, add
GLUTEN FREE - Pizza, Pasta, Sauces canned or frozen and thawed vegetables to the chili. --Wrap it up! Spread a whole-wheat tortilla with drained and mashed canned beans, salad greens, chopped red pepper and salsa. Serve with canned fruit and yogurt to make a complete meal. If you have access to a microwave, stove or oven, here are some more quick, easy and good-for-you meal ideas. --For breakfast, try a whole-wheat frozen wafﬂe topped with yogurt or fruit, or have oatmeal topped with fruit. --Baked potatoes are filling and a good base for healthy toppings. Choose sweet potatoes for the vitamin A, add salsa and frozen vegetables. Add fruit and milk to make it a full meal. --Boil hot water and pour it over whole-wheat couscous. Couscous is very small pasta and only takes a few minutes to cook when combined with hot water and covered to steam. Add chopped red pepper, chopped onions and other vegetables or canned beans. You also can add dried fruit or nuts for a different flavor. Choose milk or juice for a beverage. --Leftovers from last night’s supper are quick and easy. Add fresh vegetables to leftover pizza and heat. Serve with a salad, fresh fruit and milk for a complete meal. --Stir-fry meals are quick and easy -- and you control what goes in the dish.

choosing a frozen entree is about 300 to 400 calories per meal. Frozen meals are processed and have high amounts of sodium. When looking for frozen meals, try to choose ones that are low in sodium -- 800 mg or less is best. Try to ﬁnd frozen meals that have a lot of vegetables and whole grains, which contribute fiber and other nutrients. Add a salad, additional vegetables and whole grains if the portion sizes are too small. Frozen meals are notoriously low in ﬁber, so try to find meals that have at least 3 to 5 grams. Stay away from foods that have been dipped in batter or are covered in sauce -- they have more fat and calories. Bowl meals might contain more vegetables, but they also probably have more pasta or sauce. Have a great school year and remember to
eat healthy! (Additional information provided by Ellen Schuster, M.S., R.D., Associate State Specialist, Nutritional Sciences, University of Missouri Extension) ***

New DVD Releases for Week of Sept. 19, 2011 PICKS OF THE WEEK
“Bridesmaids” (R) -- This movie represents a true breakthrough in the realm of chick flicks: it’s a raunchy, heartfelt movie that is actually funny to members of both sexes. Annie and Lily (“Saturday Night Live” alums Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph) have been best friends since childhood. As Annie’s life hits a low point after her bakery closes down and her boyfriend leaves her, Lily asks her to be the maid of honor in her upcoming wedding. This movie has rightfully defeated “Sex and
the City” as the top-grossing female comedy, and it’s easy to understand why. The cast is made of ascending stars and truly funny individuals, most notably Kristen Wiig, who makes the most of her first big-screen leading role. “Bridesmaids” is funny, unexpected and, hopefully, a sign of things to come. “Today’s Special” (R) -- Samir (Aasif Mandvi of “The Daily Show”) is a sous chef with big plans to further his career in Paris. All of that goes down the drain when his father has a heart attack, leaving the future of the family’s failing Indian restaurant in Samir’s hands. What follows is a fresh comedy about family, heritage and learning about life through the lens of Indian cooking. Aasif Mandvi adapts his own sarcastic-butinsightful style into an earnest protagonist who has to swallow his pride -- as well as a great deal of very potent spices. The story trods familiar territory at times, but the charm is undeniable. “Adam” (PG-13) -- This startlingly sweet
romantic comedy has a catch: The protagonist isn’t just quirky or inept, he’s diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a disorder characterized by difﬁculty communicating with and relating to other people. Adam (Hugh Dancy) understands astronomy far better than he understands the simple ritual of everyday conversation. When the gorgeous Beth (Rose Byrne) moves into the apartment one floor up, Adam is determined to have actual human contact with this person. Underneath his tone-deaf comments and awkward tics, Adam seems like a great guy, which only makes his condition as an outsider more endearing. Hugh Dancy wins praise for his portrayal of the complicated character, which is compounded by his chemistry with the lovely Rose Byrne -- a fellow rising star.
“Modern Family: Season 2” -- This endear-
ing family sitcom deserves credit for shaking up what a family sitcom can be. It’s more clever than cute, comfortable but not coddling, and even at times edgy -- without alienating. A boatload of awards and nominations have been heaped on the show since its first season. “Modern Family” deserves the praise, because for many viewers, it’s proof that network sitcoms can stay fresh, relevant and funny to a wide audience.

It took vision, cooperation and determination. Today, as a member of an electric co-op, itâ€™s your turn to influence the future by saving energy. Learn how at TogetherWeSave.com.
In this economic time we all need to save money. And it is just smart businesses to check around to make sure we are getting the best deal for our money. This definitely applies to shopping for the best Homeowner's Insurance. Loyalty to the people you do business with is very important in my book, but making sure they are giving you the best deal for the coverage is something you should expect. There is no shortage of home insurance commercials on television screaming the virtues of switching insurance policies to a new company to save on your insurance premiums. However, it may not be as easy as the commercial spokesman makes it out to be and there are a few hidden pitfalls that you need to be careful to avoid. The following are ways that switching homeowner's insurance can end up costing you more than you save: Comparing Apples to Apples The biggest trick in the book for many insurance agencies is to simply quote less coverage and a higher deductible and then compare it with what you have now to show you a savings with their company. Because insurance details can be confusing, they are counting on the fact that you only look at the bottom line and don't realize you are getting way less for your money. Be sure you are comparing the
exact amounts of coverage and deductible. Losing Your Discounts One of the biggest discounts that policy holders enjoy is a discount for having multiple policies with the same insurance company (home, auto, umbrella, health, life, etc.). If you find a cheaper rate on one insurance plan and decide to switch it to another company, be sure to subtract from your savings the amount of multi-policy discount you are losing. You may not be actually saving by switching. If you are switching all of your policies, be sure to compare every detail of coverage and cost so you don't find yourself saving on one policy and paying way more on the other three policies. Research, research, research! If you find a better rate, don't be embarrassed to sit down with your current insurer and say, "I have to save money right now. I found a better rate. Tell me why I shouldn't switch." And then really listen to their reasoning. They may or may not be able to beat your new price or coverage. But they may also give you a lot more facts that you can consider before making this very important decision. Switching insurance companies is not something you want to do without considering all the facts. (See next week for Part 2)

GLUE GUN IS LATEST “HIGH-TECH” SCAM
n this high-tech world, who would have thought that a scammer could steal from people with a glue gun. Here’s how it works:
At your neighborhood bank’s ATM, where you’ve gone many times to withdraw cash, you might find one day that the machine seems to be defective. Some of the keys aren’t working correctly. Specifically, after you’ve entered all your numbers, including your PIN, the “enter” button appears to be stuck. Same for the “cancel” button. They’ve been glued in place. Meanwhile, your card is stuck in the machine mid-transaction. When you go into the bank for help, the thieves appear from around the corner and either hammer the keys loose and complete your transaction, grabbing the money, or they use the touch-screen feature, which you probably didn’t even know about. If this happens to you: --Try pressing the screen. Many locations have installed touch screens. You might be able to complete or cancel your transaction and get your card back. --If you’re carrying a metal nail file or a pocketknife with gadgets on it, try to loosen the “cancel” key.
ILLUMINATING THE WORD OF GOD SAINT JOHN’S BIBLE EXHIBIT COMING TO BENET HILL MONASTERY AND COLORADO COLLEGE
he Bible is the most reproduced book in the world. There’s a copy in every hotel room nightstand. The Saint John’s Bible, however , is one of a kind. Rather than just printed text it unfurls the Scriptures by reaching out to the senses through calligraphy and artwork. From September 25 through October 11 the Benedictine Sisters of Benet Hill Monastery will host the exhibit of seventeen print illuminations from this tenyear undertaking. The exhibition will feature several guest speakers, along with workshops on related topics. As co-sponsors of this exhibit, Colorado College will host the same exhibit, October 19th through November 8th. This exhibit is being sponsored by the : Paul Frederick Sheffer Memorial Fund for Roman Catholic Studies and Colorado College Department of Religion. The Saint John’s Bible is being called the Sistine Chapel of calligraphy. It is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible penned with ancient methods since the invention of the printing press, according to its creators.

--Use your cell phone to call the bank to tell them you’re standing outside at the ATM. When you tell them the keys are stuck, they’ll surely be right out because they’ll suspect what has happened. Whatever you do, don’t leave your card there. --In a pinch, call the police and ask for assistance. The older scams are still in play, however, so don’t let down your guard. These include:
pense literature, it also might have a camera that records every number you punch in. The thieves, likely sitting not far away, not only grab your card number, but the PIN too. --Even the keypad could be fake. Be vigilant. Remember that ATM machines that have been tampered with can be anywhere: the bank, retail stores, gas pumps and fast-food places with checkouts that have you swipe the card yourself.
--A false front with a sleeve or skimming device installed on the machine. When you insert your card, either your card number is read by a remote device, or the machine won’t let go of your card. As in the previous scenario, when you go for assistance, the scammer takes your card.

Benet Hill Community, comments that having the Saint John’s Bible displayed in our Monastic home is perfect. “There is a long and great tradition between Monasticism and art; the St. John’s Bible is working out of that tradition. As Benedictine women, we offer our Monastery as a place for contemplative prayer, beauty and art, and hosting this exhibit gives us an opportunity to do that. The exhibit officially opens at Benet Hill Monastery Sunday, Sept. 25 with Monastic Prayer at 1:30 p.m. followed by a presentation by Sister Irene Nowell, OSB titled “Visio Dvina”. Sister Irene, from Mount St. Scholastica Monastery in Atchison, Kan., has personal experience on the Saint John’s project as she serves on the committee on the illuminations and text. (Her talk will be followed by a reception and tours of the exhibit). “My area of expertise is the Old Testament; art is not my area”, Sister Irene said. “But for me to explain what a text means and see how the artist could interpret that was really an eye opening experience of both of what the biblical text means and also how it relates to us in the 21st century.” In Sister Irene’s exhibit-opening talk, she will discuss how looking at the illuminations in conjunction with the text can open up for viewers the ways God is working in our world today. “You might think you know what these texts say from the daily reading or the Gospels, but this work opens up new insights, “ she said.
