    ed to a total of 823 calls. CFAS EMTs responded to diverse

    emergencies, including traumatic injuries, medical emergen-

    emergency fire personnel. For some emergency calls, CFAS

    partnered with advanced life support units, as well as AirOne,

    an Atlantic Health System helicopter, plus NorthSTAR oper-

    ated by NJ State Police. The helicopters were utilized on four

    occasions to transport critically injured patients to a trauma or

    Theater Dance Center in Flandersraised its largest amount yet at itsannual Dance For Cure fundraiser.

    Held 6 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 19, at Mt.

    Olive High School, the dance center raised$14,000 this year to benefit Stand Up ForCancer. About 1,000 dancers, families andmembers of the community attended thethree hour dance performance.

    Collaborative effort, dedication and hardwork have made the fundraiser a successduring its past four years since it has been

    held.All the hard work from parents and vol-

    unteers- it was community effort- and Iwanted to thank them, says MilleneMichel-Schetlick, co-owner and artistic

    director at TDC. They want to help andthey want to help raise money too. Parents,dancers and their families donate time andmoney to make this event abig success eachyear.

    As a survivor of breast cancer, Michel-Schetlick was instrumental in organizingthe fundraiser back in 2011, right after

    Local Dance Company Raises High Dollars For Cancerundergoing a double mastectomy andchemotherapy. She had been diagnosedwith breast cancer in 2010.

    One of her former dancers of the studio,Casey Markowitz, was diagnosed shortly

    after with Hodgkins Lymphoma. She spokeat the benefit this year, and in previousyears, about her research and her own battlewith cancer. Markowitz graduated MOHSin 2012 and currently attends MaristCollege as a freshman.

    To help raise money for Stand Up ToCancer this year, TDC invited several otherdance companies to perform dance num-bers. Performers included TDC ShootingStars Competitive team; Essex DanceAcademy in Fairfield; Perfect PointePerforming Arts Studio in Sparta; Epic

    Dance Company in Flemington; and someTDC dancers such as Hands Down TapProject, Iridescent Dance Company, andTDC Company B Dancers.

    Dancers and their families spoke aboutloved ones lost and surviving cancer.

    We have personally been touched hereat TDC by cancer, says Michel-Schetlick.Weve seen the effects on our families andour loved ones. We want to find a way tochange it and find a cure. The more researchthat is done, positive changes to patientsand possible cure, thats our goal.

    Since the benefit began four years ago,

    TDC has raised $38,000.We are now over our goal, says

    Michel-Schetlick. TDCs goal had been$35,000. Were ecstatic; its so exciting.

    Money is raised through ticket sales to

    attend TDCs Dance For a Cure 2014, aswell as t-shirts. The full 100 percent of pro-ceeds go to SUTC. Donations for thisfundraiser are continuous. Go to theater-dancecenter.com for more information orcall 973-584-5020 to donate.

    SUTC is an organization created toaccelerate groundbreaking cancer researchthat will get new therapies to patients quick-ly and save lives. Its purpose is to enablecutting-edge research to find a cure to alltypes of cancer such as breast, prostate, skinand brain.

    In its 24th year, TDC teaches dance to2.5 year olds to adults in ballet, tap, jazz,acrobat, lyrical and hip hop.

    We strive to train dancers who are seri-ous for professional careers, says Michel-Schetlick, as well as do it for love and funand expose them to the art. Our staff is high-ly trained and experienced in working withchildren. We strive to inspire our students.We offer a large variety of classes and lev-els including many professional opportuni-ties and we bring in outside professionalsfrom New York, California to expose our

    Are you in need of dental implants,

    and unsure of who you should see?

    Maybe you want your dentist to take

    care of them, but they are suggesting send-

    ing you to an oral surgeon or periodontist,

    and that makes you uncomfortable. Ormaybe your general dentist doesnt get

    involved with implants at all. Choosing the

    right dentist for dental implants can be con-

    fusing and nerve-wracking.

    Its important to understand dental

    implants are not a specialty; so technically,

    any dentist can perform the procedure.

    Dentist have many different levels of train-

    ing. Most dentists simply restore the

    implants with the prosthesis, meaning a

    crown, bridge, denture, or hybrid teeth.

    These dentists will work with an oral sur-geon or periodontist to place the implants;

    this is where a referral becomes necessary.

    Other dentists are comfortable placing

    implants as long as they are straight-for-

    ward. If the amount of bone available is

    minimal, grafting may be necessary and

    referrals again become likely.

    Some dentists, such as Dr. Goldberg, are

    experts in implant dentistry with years of

    training and experience, and thoroughly

    enjoy implant dentistry. The advantage to

    this is one dentist is taking full responsibili-ty for the treatment and you only have to

    visit one office, rather than getting bounced

    from one dentist to another.

    One of the biggest challenges with dental

    implants is finding implants that are placed

    in poor positions, making them difficult to

    be restored correctly. This happens when

    the dentist who places the implants is notfocusing on the restorations. This does not

    happen all the time, but when it does hap-

    pen, it can be frustrating for all parties

    involved. It can also put the implants at risk

    of failure, which may not be apparent until a

    number of years have elapsed.

    When doing your homework on choosing

    an implant dentist, there are some important

    questions or topics you should consider ask-

    ing your dentist and / or surgeon:

    How long have you been placing /

    restoring implants? What kind of training do you have?

    What implant organizations are you

    involved with?

    If more than one office is involved, how

    in-sync are the two offices? How long have

    you been working together?

    Can you please show me other cases

    you have completed that are similar to mine?

    Who will I see for maintenance and fol-

    low-up care: the dentist who placed the

    implants or the dentist who restored the

    implants? Do I have to see both? Will therebe multiple charges for the maintenance vis-

    its?

    Who Should I See For My Dental Implants? What are my other options for treat-

    ment?

    If the dentist or surgeon answering those

    questions is fully capable and confident in

    their responses, you can be comforted they

    may be the right dentist to perform yourimplants.

    The office of Dr. Goldberg offers free consul-

    tations. If youd like to speak with Dr.

    Goldberg personally and determine the best

    course of action for your specific situation,

    please call his office.

    Dr. Goldberg is a general dentist located in

    the Roxbury Mall in Succasunna, NJ. He

    provides dentistry for the entire family,

    including: cleanings, check-ups, whitening,

    veneers, crowns, root canals, dentures, peri-

    odontal (gum) services, dental implants, and

    much more. He is a Diplomate of theAmerican Board of Implantology/Implant

    Dentistry, holds multiple degrees and is rec-

    ognized as an expert in dental implants. You

    site: www.morriscountydent ist.com. The

    Breakthrough Treatment Now Available In Long ValleyImagine thirty to forty years ago if you were told that lasers

    would replace scalpels in surgery or that robotic instruments

    would build cars; you may not have believed it. By the same token

    would you believe that chiropractic treatments could be performed

    using a special hand-held instrument developed by NASA scien-

    tists; all while you were sitting in an upright position without turn-

    ing or twisting movements?

    Advances in computers and engineering technologies have

    been able to uniquely blend with chiropractic in order to both ana-

    lyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before

    realized.

    According to Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, This new form of comput-

    erized treatment is so gentle and effective, that it amazes even the

    most skeptical patients. Its called the ProAdjuster and is the latest,

    state-of-the-art technology in existence today, and the only one in

    the Long Valley area

    The ProAdjuster can safely and gently analyze and treat the

    spine and other joints to remove the nerve impingement that isoften the cause of pains in the low back, neck, shoulder and else-

    where in the body. It also works on a variety of muscular condi-

    tions to loosen tight muscles with ease and comfort. Many patients

    say that its like getting a mini-massage.

    It can also help increase the amount of motion in almost any

    joint. Even patients with knee, hip and foot problems such as plan-

    tar fasciitis are being helped. It is also covered by most insurance

    companies including medicare.

    Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, the secret to the ProAdjuster lies in its

    advanced piezoelectric sensor that is able to detect the slightest

    amount of restriction in a joint and then deliver an extremely pre-

    cise adjustment. He says that Even though traditional forms ofadjusting also work, people are drawn to this new technique

    because of how gentle it is and does not involve

    any twisting, especially in the neck. Many peo-

    ple love getting adjusted with traditional manual

    techniques, all of which are safe and effective,

    but there are a large number of people who never

    get to experience the amazing benefits of chiro-practic because they are scared to have their

    spines adjusted in that way, says Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, Now,

    there is no longer a reason for anyone to be weary. The

    ProAdjuster is perfect for anyone who has been thinking about

    going to a chiropractor, but hasnt yet made that decision. Dr.

    Michael S. Hyjek, wants everyone to be able to experience these

    same benefits and if you have any of the following conditions,

    the ProAdjuster may be the answer youve been looking for

    Low back discomfort Fibromyalgia

    Sciatic nerve pain * Planter Fascitis

    Neck and shoulder pain Knee or hip pain

    TMJ dysfunction Scoliosis

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Arthritis

    Headaches Sports injuries

    Treatment with the ProAdjuster is consistent, measurable and

    extremely gentle. There is no guesswork, and its safe for indi-

    viduals of all ages. Call our office today and mention this article

    Anglers, skaters and outdoor enthusiasts often take tothe great outdoors when lakes and other bodies ofwater freeze. But even after days of below-freezing

    temperatures, lakes may not be solid, increasing the risk thatrevelers will fall through the ice, possibly resulting in drown-

    ing or hypothermia. As a result, it is imperative that safetyprecautions be taken when spending time on frozen lakes.

    Though it can be fun to skate or fish on a frozen lake, iceis never safe and it's always in one's best interest to treat icewith caution. Ice strength depends on various factors, includ-ing daily temperature, water depth, water chemistry, currents,and distribution of the load on the ice. It is impossible to

    judge the thickness of the ice by appearance alone. Your bestbet is to proceed with caution and follow these tips for sur-vival.

    * Be prepared for any scenario. Prepare for the possibilityof a plunge. Carry a long metal or metal-tipped wood pole,called a spud bar, which can be used to test the strength ofareas of ice you are unsure about. The bar also can be used asa walking stick. Carry safety spikes to provide traction if youfall through and need to climb up onto the ice.

    * Avoid crossing frozen bodies of water in a single file, asit may stress the ice. Also, never venture out alone. Alwaysgo with a partner or alert someone to your whereabouts.

    * Always wear a life jacket. Life jackets act as flotation

    devices until you can get to safety.* Do not take a vehicle onto the ice. Sixty-eight percent of

    the 117 ice fatalities that occurred in Minnesota in the last 40years involved a vehicle. A car or light truck needs 8 to 12inches of clear ice to be safe.

    * Be aware of cracks or fissures in the ice. Be extremelycautious crossing ice near river mouths, points of land,islands, and springs. Currents can cause ice to be thinner inthese areas.

    * Carry a safety line. Such lines can be thrown to some-one who has fallen through the ice. This may be the bestmethod of pulling someone to safety.

    * Remain calm if you fall through the ice. Avoid thrash-ing, which can use up energy and body heat. Try to keep yourhead and face above the water. The body will react to theplunge by going into "cold shock," a condition characterizedby hyperventilation, involuntary gasping and internalresponses including hypertension (high blood pressure) and

    changes in pulse rate. You do have time to get out. Many peo-ple can last two to five minutes in cold water before strengthand coordination are compromised.

    Try to normalize your breathing to ensure you get enoughoxygen to react and get to safety. Concentrate on breathingslowly and steadily. Kick your feet and pull yourself out ofthe water at the strongest edge of the ice. Try to roll up onto

    the ice, staying flat to distribute your body weight. Roll your-self away from the hole into which you fell and remain onyour hands and knees until you crawl several feet away. Onlythen should you stand up and walk to safety to get dry andwarm.

    Spending time on a frozen lake can be fun, but it's alsorisky. Knowing how to react in an emergency situation may

    just save a life.

    Mitzvah, a beautiful Seal Point

    Siamese cat, was finally reunited

    with Shirley, her owner, after sev-

    eral months. Shirley had been ill and was in

    a nursing home for two months recovering

    from surgery. A neighbor of hers was com-ing in every other day to feed Mitzvah and

    clean the litter box. But after a few days,

    Mitzvah stopped eating and seemed

    depressed. Shirleys daughter was dis-

    traught about her mothers condition and

    now the cats behavior. It was more than she

    could bear.

    Realizing she had to do something,

    Shirleys daughter e-mailed the Cat Chalet

    in Randolph, New Jersey, to see if it could

    help. Susan Mohr, owner of the Cat Chalet,

    agreed to take the cat, however, she knewthat Mitzvah being united with her owner

    was not a guarantee. It was a risky propo-

    sition since the owner was elderly and ill,

    and anything could happen, but I felt I need-

    ed to help this cat and decided it was my

    obligation to see what I could do, said

    Mohr.

    Mitzvah came to the Cat Chalet extreme-

    ly scared and skinny. It looked like she

    stopped eating soon after Shirley became

    ill. For three days, she wouldnt eat. Her

    eyes were as big as baseballs. She didnttrust anyone. She would back away if you

    came close to her. The Cat Chalet staff

    made it their mission to get her eating again.

    They were patient and slowly let Mitzvah

    come to them. Soon, she started eating wet

    food and wanted to walk around the kennel.

    After a few weeks, Shirleys daughtersent another e-mail: her mother was return-

    ing home and after a few days of adjusting

    back to her house, she wanted Mitzvah

    home with her. However, Shirleys daughter

    had a full work schedule and family obliga-

    tions, and she couldnt bring the cat back to

    her mom.

    As it turned out, Shirley lived in

    Hackettstown where one of the Cat Chalet

    employees, Colleen, lived. Colleen offered

    to drop Mitzvah off at Shirleys house.

    When Mitzvah got home, she ran aroundthe house, excited to be back with her

    owner. Shirley was excited to have Mitzvah

    back too, but she was having problems get-

    ting around. Colleen was concerned that

    Shirley may have trouble taking care of

    Mitzvah. Colleen agreed to come over and

    check on both of them until Shirley was

    able to do more on her own.

    Ever since then, Colleen has been going

    over to Shirleys house once a week to

    check on Mitzvah and her owner. Shirley is

    slowly getting back on her feet. She has saidhow grateful she is for the staff at the Cat

    Reunited After Three Months

    Chalet for taking such great care of her pre-

    cious baby. Thank you for everything you

    have done for me and Mitzvah, Shirley has

    said multiple times to Colleen.

    At the Cat Chalet, the staff makes sure

    your cat is happy, safe, and sound. Whether

    it is ensuring a beautiful reunion or makinga cat more comfortable during its stay, the

    Cat Chalet will do everything it can to make

    every story have a happy ending. They are

    located in Randolph, NJ on Route 10. If

    you would like to see how the Cat Chalet

    can make a difference in your cats life, call

    ahead for a reservation, 973-989-6160, and

    And Miss Jerseys Outstanding Teen 2014

    is.Samantha Rizzuto of Long Valley.

    On January 11th at Millville High School in Millville,Rizzuto received that crown, which gets her one step closer

    to the national title. The national pageant, the teen version

    of Miss America, will be held on August 2nd at the Orange

    County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

    Recently, Rizzuto reflected on the Miss America organi-

    zation and on her new title and what it means to her.

    Formerly, Miss Libertys Outstanding Teen, Rizzuto is

    no stranger to the Miss America pageant system.

    I have been participating in the Miss America system

    since I was 13. My first year, 2011, I did not win a local

    [pageant], so I did not compete at the state pageant. In

    2012, I was 2nd runner up to the title. In 2013, I was firstrunner-up. I was very happy each year to place closer to my

    goal of being Miss New Jerseys Outstanding Teen, said

    Rizzuto.

    In the pageant, each contestant had to perform and share

    her platform; Rizzutos.showed her depth of interests. For

    her talent, she sang the English translation of Mein Herr

    Marquis, frequently referred to as Adeles Laughing Song

    from the Opera Die Fledermaus Conversely, her platform,

    Balancing the Equation, focused on the need to strength-

    en science, technology, engineering, and math programs for

    younger students in New Jersey and the United States

    Rizzuto, a junior at the Math, Science and Engineering

    Academy located at Morris Hills High in Rockaway, has

    created a program called STEM-CAM (Science,

    Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics through build-

    ing Confidence, changing Attitudes, and Mentoring). The

    program, held at various area libraries, introduces these

    subjects to younger students in fun ways. It received agrant from Dosomething.org in 2013.

    In other countries STEM subjects are introduced at a

    much younger age allowing students to develop skills and

    interest in these fields early in life. Strengthening our

    STEM Education Programs will allow our country to con-

    tinue to be competitive in the areas of invention, innovation

    and defense. It will also decrease our unemployment rate;

    which will improve our economy, since there will be quali-

    fied Americans capable of filling jobs currently being out-

    sourced., said Rizzuto.

    Now that she is the state titleholder, she will act as an

    advocate for that platform. In addition, she has other

    responsibilities:

    I am a role model for teens in New Jersey, promoting

    the four points of the crown: scholastics, style, success and

    service. I am an ambassador for the Childrens Miracle

    Network helping to raise awareness and funds for their pro-

    gram. . I represent where hard work, perseverance and

    a dream can take you, Rizzuto shared

    Looking at all shes accomplished and her new responsi-

    bilities, it may be surprising to hear that Rizzuto used to be

    shy when speaking to others. She feels that one of the ben-

    efits of participating in the pageants is that it has helped her

    become more confident, to find her voice. Now, she enjoysRecently crowned, Miss New Jersey's Outstanding Teen 2014is Samantha Rizzuto of Long Valley.

    I feel the Miss America organization

    has helped me to pursue my passions and

    discover who I am and what I stand for,

    she shared.Not only does the program help in that

    area, but Rizzuto noted that it is scholar-

    ship- based. There are many colleges which

    offer scholarships to state winners with cer-

    tain GPAs and SAT scores.

    As she looks forward to the national pag-

    eant, Rizzuto has lots of support behind her.

    The Miss New Jersey Scholarship

    Organization is like a family. It is run by

    volunteers who really give of themselves to

    the girls and the program. I have received

    cards, emails, gifts and messages frommembers of the organization showing their

    love, support and willingness to help me be

    successful at the next level., she said.

    The next level will start on July 25th

    when the state titleholders check in for

    rehearsals, appearances and social events in

    Miss New Jerseys Outstanding Teen 2014...Florida. There will be three preliminary

    nights, July 29th, 30ththand 31st, The final

    night is on Saturday, August 2nd when the

    new Miss Americas Outstanding Teen will

    be crowed.

    It is a huge honor to be selected to rep-

    resent New Jersey at the national pageant. I

    have big shoes to fill. In the past six years,

    five of the representatives from New Jersey

    have made it into the top 15. I feel deter-

    mined to shine and make New Jersey

    proud, Rizzuto said.

    Long time MorrisHabitat volunteer,

    Don Kuhn from

    Harding, NJ was honored at

    the recent annual meeting of

    the Morris County Chamber

    of Commerce. He received

    the 2013 William P. Huber

    Award, given to an individ-

    ual who has consistently

    shown outstanding commu-

    nity leadership. William P.

    Huber was President of St.

    Blair Schleicher Bravo

    describes Don as That rare

    volunteer; a renaissance

    man dabbling in many

    Leonard Lance claims he's

    endorsed by and represents con-

    servative, N.J. Tea Party organiza-

    tions. But why then, is Lance one of a

    handful of Republican congressman a

    member of, and taking donations from, a

    lobbyist group, the Main StreetPartnership, and corporations that raise

    millions of dollars to protect establish-

    ment Republicans from Tea Party chal-

    lengers?

    The Main Street Partnership's sole

    mission is to help Republican lawmakers

    who believe that only the government

    has the ability to solve problems with

    higher spending, and fight back against

    conservative groups that sponsor Tea

    Party candidates who challenge incum-

    bent Republicans in primariesThe Main Street Partnership, started

    by former Ohio Congressman Steven C.

    LaTourette, has positioned itself to take

    advantage of the current rift in the

    Republican party.

    Set to release millions of dollars in

    corporate funds and campaign donations,

    The Main Street Partnership will create a

    windfall for strategists and former office

    holders.

    By donating to the "The Main Street

    Partnership," corporations gain access tolawmakers by contributing money to

    their "political action committees," this

    in turn give them the right to participate

    in events with sitting members of

    Congress. The list of corporate donors is

    kept secret.

    So how does Leonard Lance vote, and

    does he really represent you? Lance

    votes more with Obama and Democrats

    than he does with Republicans.

    According to "Heritage Action for

    America" which keeps score on how

    congress vote on conservative issues,

    Leonard Lance only votes 49 per cent of

    the time for conservative causes. Lance

    also voted with Obama twice to raise the

    debt ceiling which funds Obama-care.

    Moreover, Lance voted to raise the

    price of home heating oil and to tax

    Christmas trees when he voted for

    Obama's Agricultural Act of 2014, also

    know as "The Farm Bill." It's proponents

    claim it will cut the deficit, but what it

    really is, is a mass spending bill and

    more corporate welfare, jam packed with

    new regulations that will decrease your

    bottom line.

    This bill will ad nearly $1-trillion to

    the debt, will set policy for the next five

    years on crop subsidies, nutrition pro-

    grams, conservation and food stamps. It

    also includes new stricter regulations onbio-fuels, climate change and farmers

    markets.

    Lance agreed with Obama when he

    said "the debate over climate change is

    settled," during his State of the Union

    speech. Climate laws that Obama can't

    enforce through legislation will be done

    by executive order. In other words,

    Lance supports Obama's recent decree

    that he will rule by "pen and phone"

    when it comes to implementing climate

    change laws. Lance, a champion of envi-ronmental causes, voted with Obama on

    restricting the use of coal for generating

    electricity, which will also put coal min-

    ers out of work.

    Furthermore, Lance, a member of the

    House Energy and Finance Committee,

    also votes with environmental groups

    that believe private enterprise drives

    innovation, but it's your tax dollars

    invested invested in private companies

    like Solyndra (Obama's solar panel com-

    pany that went bankrupt) drives theeconomy. (nothing could be further from

    the truth)

    So, what's really going on here and

    why should you be concerned? 57 per-

    cent of all electricity in New Jersey is

    generated by coal. Any new restrictions

    on the use of coal will raise your electric-

    ity rates. This is Cap and Trade through

    the back door, which Lance still supports

    and voted for back in 2010.

    Lance's voting record shows that he's

    in favor of it costing you more to heatyour home and power your house in

    order to stop global warming and at the

    same time he's

    saddling future generations with

    crushing debt. With the primary election

    on June 3rd, it's time to start thinking

    about who Congressman Lance repre-

    sents, crony capitalism or you, the peo-

    ple of the 7th District?"

    The more I know people, the more Ilove my dog. Or, in my case, mydogs. Ive taken Mark Twains obser-

    vation to heart for many years now. Yet thesedays, when it comes to one group of Americans,its more true than ever.

    Passionately and fundamentally dividedwere the people in the United States in the

    decades leading up to the Civil War. I am com-ing to genuinely fear that todays wing nuts onthe right, overwhelmingly white, super reli-gious, ideologically rigid, and not all that welleducated, are whipping themselves up into areal lather as they continue their march, theirown war really, against the rest of us. Clearlytheyre passionate and just as clearly their viewsabout our country, our Constitution, and ourdemocratic form of government are fundamen-tally different than the rest of America.Apparently we are usurpers of their America.They are, as their hero Sarah Palin tells them,the real Americans. What they are is fright-ened and, more ominously, theyre angry. Weare all paying a high price for their blindobstructionism and truculence as they stampedeto impose their narrow, ill considered policieson all of us.

    Id like to content myself with a belief that,while these people are garnering a lot of pressthese days, they will soon return to the fringe ofour cultural and political discourse. But whoknows? Their fifteen minutes are certainly notup yet.

    Over the past several years the wing nutshave stormed the Republican Party headquar-ters. It seems that many old timers have runout the back door. The infighting hasnt beenpretty. No. Nothing gentlemanly about this.Beyond question, the damage has already beenextensive. And it isnt over yet.

    Even once respected Republican think tanks,like the Heritage Foundation, have fallen to theheathens. There was a time when many peopleacross the political spectrum, even Liberals,once respected the work product of the HeritageFoundation even while disagreeing with its pol-

    icy prescriptions. At least there was some gen-uine academic rigor to their work. Today, aca-demics on both the left and the right agree thatthe Heritage Foundation is finished, its reputa-tion in tatters.

    These days the voices on the right seem to beliving in a world of their own design. Theyvebeen caught in so many factual errors andhypocrisies theres no need to recount any ofthem here. Glen Beck. Sean Hannity. AnnCoulter. Bill OReilly. Michael Savage. One ofthe most disheartening things about this era isnot only that these people are talking, its that so

    many people are listening and shaking theirheads in agreement. Sad, sad, sad.

    And as for Fox News. I suggest thatnobody should watch it. It isnt news. It is ascourge upon our country and one that will,eventually, fade away. But not yet. WatchingFox may not make you stupid, as some claim,but it sure doesnt make you smart.

    Lately the wing nuts on the right have been

    making it exceedingly clear that they are notlike us. A recent poll reported that more thanhalf of the people in our country who identifythemselves as Republican, let alone as conser-vative, reject the theories, reject the truth, ofevolution. More than half believe in creation-ism as reality. Think about that. Its one thing tohave religious faith. Its quite another, in thisday and age, to reject science and embrace, astruth, the idea that the world was formed prettymuch as it is a mere 6 thousand or so years ago.And whats worse is that in many states, includ-ing Tennessee, Kentucky and Texas, these folkshave found their way onto the school boards andhave been pushing, very hard, to shove aside thesound and proper teaching of evolution in pub-lic schools and to have textbooks and classroominstruction give at least equal weight to cre-ationism. Is it any wonder that Americanschoolchildren lag behind other first worldcountries, and even some developing countries,in science? But wait, theres more.

    These same people, many of whom also self-identify as Tea Party members, show even morecontempt for science. What global climate

    changes? That shining light from Texas,Senator Ted Cruz, commenting on this coldwinter weather has repeatedly told audiencesthat Al Gore told me this wouldnt happen.Apparently his audiences go wild. Actual scien-tists around the world arent laughing, though.Im groaning. You should be too.

    Reject science. Reject reasonable compro-mise in government. Reject the rights of fellowAmericans who dont agree with your religiousviews. Reject your political opponents as theyare not patriotic. Reject, reject, reject.

    So how will this play out for our precious

    country? I dont know. I do know that allowingpeople on the fringe right, the Tea Party farright, to have a veritable veto on reasonablelaws and reasonable policies, such as weveseen happen over the past several years, is thewrong recipe for those of us who treasure ourConstitutional form of government, where weknow we must have a consensus of the gov-erned, by the governed and for the governed. Ifthe fringe right wing keeps going as it has been,maybe we should keep an eye on Fort Sumter.Nothing would surprise me.

    Everyone can benefit from Acupuncture whether

    seeking help for an existing health issue or just to

    promote overall wellness and to help prevent future

    issues. Acupuncture is an evidence-based modality and

    research from the National Institute of Health proves that

    Acupuncture is effective for use in pain management,

    osteoarthritis, postoperative or chemotherapy-related nau-

    sea, addiction, stroke rehabilitation, infertility and asthma,

    among others. In addition, The World Health Organization

    declares Acupunctures efficacy in relieving anxiety, panic

    disorders, insomnia and forty-two other medical conditions.

    What is Acupuncture?Acupuncture is a modality of Traditional Chinese

    Medicine that requires the insertion of tiny filiform needles

    into various points on the body. Acupuncture and Chinese

    Medicine originated in Ancient China thousands of years

    ago. The Ancient Chinese discovered that every living

    being has energy that flows through invisible meridians

    (energy lines) throughout the body. This energy, known as

    "Qi" is the motive life force. In healthy individuals the Qi

    flows smoothly through the channels/ meridians. Imbalance

    in the flow of Qi results in illness and/or disease.

    Think of a garden hose. Water flows smoothly throughthe hose as long as there are no kinks. When a kink occurs,

    the water builds up on one side of the kink preventing the

    water from flowing through. Now envision 14 garden hoses

    attached to one another and arranged within the body. Each

    hose is connected to an organ in the body. You can see how

    a kink in just one of the hoses can affect all the other

    hoses/organs throughout the body. The kink or blockage

    results in illness and/or disease.

    Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is used to res tore the

    smooth flow of Qi (i.e. remove all the kinks) and bring

    the body back to balance.

    If you are still following then you are probably wonder-ing how the kinks originate in the first place. Our Qi or

    energy can become kinked or blocked from

    physical/emotional trauma, stress, poor lifestyle and eating

    habits, seasonal changes, over-exertion, and exposure to the

    elements (wind, cold, dampness, heat). But have no

    fearAcupuncture is here!

    How does Acupuncture Work?

    There are several theories regarding the Acupuncture

    mechanism. Acupuncture helps the body to do what it was

    meant to do- heal itself. Some of the most common theories

    include:

    - Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins,

    which relieve pain

    - Acupuncture stimulates the release of neurotransmitters

    (substances that that transmit nerve impulses to the brain

    -Acupuncture has a profound effect on the Autonomic

    Nervous System- Acupuncture stimulates circulation

    - Acupuncture enhances the bodys immune response

    - Acupuncture influences the electrical currents of the

    body

    The most common question of all Does Acupuncture

    Hurt?

    Extremely fine needles are used in the treatment of

    Acupuncture, making the experience almost painless. Most

    patients don't even feel the needles being inserted. The

    Acupuncture needles used are as fine as a few hairs on your

    head. All of my patients find their Acupuncture treatments

    to be very relaxing. In fact, most people fall asleep during

    their treatment.

    What is a typical Acupuncture treatment like?

    Upon arrival the patient is asked to fill out a detailed

    health history questionnaire. Then, the acupuncturist will

    review the health history with the patient and go over the

    patients primary health concern and lifestyle. The acupunc-

    turist will take the patient's pulses and look at his/her tongue

    (In Chinese medicine the tongue and pulses are representa-

    tive of the various organ/meridian systems and help in the

    diagnostic process). After the interview, the practitioner

    will come up with a diagnosis and treatment plan for thepatient. The treatment plan is specific to the individual- not

    their disease. Then, the sterile needles will be inserted into

    various acupuncture points. The patient may feel a heavi-

    ness or tingling sensation around the needle insertion site.

    The needles are typically retained for 20-30 minutes.

    Sticking to the Facts - Learn How Everyone Can Benefit!How many Acupuncture treatments are needed?

    The number of Acupuncture treatments needed is based

    on the severity and chronicity of the condition. However,

    most patients experience some relief after the very first

    treatment.

    What does Acupuncture treat?

    Acupuncture is effective in treating various disorders

    and symptoms including, but not limited to the following:

    Addiction, Anxiety, Arthritis, Tendonitis & Joint Pain,

    Asthma, Auto Injuries, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,

    Common Cold & Influenza, Constipation, Degenerative

    Disk Disorders, Depression, Facial Rejuvenation,Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Indigestion, Gas, Bloating,

    Infertility, Insomnia, Menopause symptoms, Migraines,

    Morning Sickness, Musculoskeletal pain, Nausea,

    Orthopedic Conditions, Pain, PMS & Menstrual

    Irregularities, Reproductive Issues, Sports Injuries, Stress,

    Tendonitis, Smoking Cessation and Weight management.

    What does it take to become an Acupuncturist?

    In addition to obtaining a Bachelors degree,

    Acupuncturists are required to undergo 3-4 years of school-

    ing at an accredited Acupuncture school. Acupuncture pro-

    grams consist of various classes in the areas of Acupuncture

    and Biomedicine as well as a full year of a clinical intern-

    ship to obtain the experience of treating patients.

    Did You Know?

    Genetically modified foods, or GMOs, have been a

    topic of heated conversation for the last several

    months. People have strong opinions on both sides

    of the GMO debate. In January 2014, retail giant General

    Mills decided to produce GMO-Free Cheerios, one of its

    most popular and well-known cereals. This move now makes

    shopping for a GMO-free cereal that much easier. However,

    finding other products that do not contain GMOs may not be

    so simple, and consumers may have to do some research.Food companies in the United States are not required to label

    foods to indicate use of GMOs. It is safe to assume that corn

    and soybeans produced in the United States are genetically

    modified. Papayas are often modified as well. Produce that

    has been genetically modified will have a bar code that starts

    with the digit "8." One way to avoid GMOs is to buy only

    organic foods, which, in many instances, are GMO-free

    thanks to stringent regulations. In terms of other foods, it

    very well may be aguessing game. Speaking with a brand's

    customer service department may be the best way to learn if

    they offer any GMO-free products.

    talent to burn with Neville, who recently

    garnered hree national blues awards,Allman, the son of Gregg Allman, Mike

    Zito, bassist Charlie Wooten and drummer

    Yonrico Scott, who also plays with the

    Derek Trucks Band, and has also played the

    sticks for Gregg Allman and the Allman

    Brothers themselves.

    Last year Samantha Fish rocked the

    Blues Bash, prompting calls for her return!

    She literally blew away the crowd last year,

    and you can expect more of the same this

    year as she breaks out tunes from her

    newest CD, Black Wind Howlin'. TheKansas City-based Fish has been on a major

    roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie

    Taylor and Dani Wilde on the 2011 release,

    Girls with Guitars. It is for sure that this tal-

    ented woman is destined for worldwide big-

    time attention in the very near future!
