Weight loss, physical activity and a low- sodium or salt-restricted diet is most commonly prescribed. However, new research shows that diets rich in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products give additional benefit. Low-fat milk products fortified with vitamin D are best because vitamin D also may help protect against prostate cancer. Our best sources of vitamin D are sunlight, fatty fish and fortified milk. Although questions have been raised about dairy products and risk for prostate cancer, the American Institute for Cancer Research believes that at this point, "We can neither prove nor dismiss the possible link between (760) 765-2100 As Heard On The Streets Of Julian by Eric Stamets Row Boat Hijacked By Pirates On Cuyamaca Lake We've all read about the reports of all kinds of boats being captured by pirates as they go through certain waters off of East Africa and the fantastic amounts of money that are being paid as ransom to free them and their crews. It turns out that with all that money evidently, some of th.Q pirates decided to take a vacation in the San Diego area, staying in the finest suite at one of the finest hotels. Authorities don't know who most of the pirates are and they don't appear on the no-fly list and there is not a no-float list that could have been cross referenced. Naturally they had plenty of money to rent a luxury car and decided to explore the surrounding area. They had a wonderful lunch at the Cuyamaca Lake Restaurant and looking out at the view of the lake from the overlooking restaurant decided that they saw some easy pickings. They rented a motor boat and set after a man teaching his son to fish in a row boat. They were intent on towing the boat to a remote part of the Lake but since they drove up through the State Park, didn't realize that the lake ended at the jetty. They tied up there and called in the pretty excessive ransom on a cell phone. Since they had to go through airline security to get here, they had no weapons. A lake ranger was dispatched immediately and upon quickly reaching the tied up boats, easily took the pirates into custody until the sheriff's deputy arrived. It's amazing how a little event at Cuyamaca can affect happenings across the world. Because of quick and decisive work by the ranger, there are a few less pirates to hijack oil tankers and other critical shipments. If you work at Cuyamaca Lake or are a sheriff's deputy and don't know anything about this excitement, it was your day off. L My Day The old lady has left for the day, I'm all alone; what will I do? I'll take a nap or maybe two. Then I'll sit by the window, And watch the birds. Have you ever watched birds? They flit and hop and peck, They fly, flutter and tweet. They never sit still Like I like to do. They come in all colors. Red, blue and yellow Are my favorite hues, by Trixie the Cat But there are lots of brown and gray, black and tan. Almost like us cats, We come in all colors too. Guess I'll go eat a snack Wish it were one of those birds, But the old lady wouldn't like that. Oh look, here come the turkeys. They strut through the yard twice a day. I'd be afraid to chase One of those big birds. by Bill Fink Volunteers of America There have been times in the past when rve sat down to write this column and have come up blank, so I just made things up. I'm blank today, mostly because I never realized the energy expended in putting on "The Dance" and how the Sons throw their hat right back in the riing with another breakfast for the 4th of July parade. There is a core group of men at SAL, like any organization that lead, perform and get things done all in the name of giving back to the community they love. What is it that causes men and women t) volunteer? Why is it that American, more than any nation on earth always seems to rise above all obstacles with a force of zealous volunteers trying to accomplish great feats? My experience with the Sons has been a lesson in Volunteerism at its finest (Voluntarism) (the policy or practice of volunteering one's time or services, as for charitable or community work). Volunteerism is a long tradition in America. It was Volunteers that threw the yoke of the British Empire from the backs of a fledgling nation. Americans volunteer forces fought in all our wars. They were the decisive factor in defeating the Kaiser during WWI. Without America (defeating Nazism and Japanese Ilmperialism during the 1940's lthe world would not be, as we know it. Still today, America; leads the fight against terror through Volunteers. American Volunteers have paid the ultimate price with their lives and blood on the battlefields throughout our rfistory. The early years of America saw colonies of people band together for the common good. Those of us who have Grandparents from the great migrations to the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th century tell of processing at Ellis Island and walking around New York City until they heard their native tongue or something close to it and were taken in or helped by others. There was no welfare, unemployment or safety net other than the charity of others. Throughout my life I have seen great examples of Americans helping each other and others throughout the world. Americans are the most generous people the world has ever known. U.S. financial contributions in the form of foreign aid to the world, pales in comparison to the private dollars that are generously expended every year by Americans. When there is a disaster due to fire, flood, "tornado, earthquake or hurricane there are always people or some group in this country that will pick up and go to help. rm not talking about the Red Cross or FEMA, milk and prostate cancer. More research needs to be done before any changes are made to dietary recommendations for dairy products." Fat and total calorie intake also affect prostate cancer risk. Because of milk's excellent nutrient content and known health benefits, the cancer institute advises men to include small amounts of dairy foods in the diet, but not to go over 2,000 mg of calcium per day.. Fish ' Certain varieties of fish, including salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines, are rich in"omega-3 fatty acids." This particular kind of fat offers protection against death from heart attack. There also is evidence that these fatty acids could help reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Try to eat two fish meals per week. Vegetables Men who eat lots of vegetables, especially those in the cruciferous family --broccoli, cauliflower, cabffage and kale -- have significantly lower rates of prostate cancer Vegetables and other plant-based foods including whole grains and beans or legumes also offer protection against heart disease and colon cancer. Eat a variety of vegetables to ensure the best range of protective components, including powerful antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Remember, food is just one component of a healthy lifestyle. Physical activity also is. key in preventing a wide range of illnesses. Be aware of your family's history of specific diseases, and schedule regular check-ups and health screenings ' accordingly. Let your kids catch you setting a good example. Children need their fathers, so celebrate your health and take care of your body.

When there is disaster in the world the Stars and Stripes are there "fustest with the mustest" (Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest) While American volunteerism may seem to be waning at home due in part to government entitlements, it is alive, well and strong in this small town. rve talked to scores of locals over the years about the fire disaster in Julian in '03 and listened to angry accounts of trying to recover and rebuild and the frustration of dealing with public agencies. But I have heard glowing reports of how neighbors, friends, volunteer organizations and churches provided food, lodging and comfort to a devastated community. One of the things that strikes me in this small town, is how many local organizations and clubs that are listed in the phone book. While all are not charitable groups, a lot are. Groups like the Merchants and Chamber might not be charitable in nature, but in my experience, their members June 22, 2011 have been great.benefactors of local causes. On the stage at the JHS scholarship assembly, local groups and foundations gave thousands of dollars to local kids who wanted to further their education. None of the groups there are in it for profit, just the pure unadulterated act of giving to their community. Quite frankly most of the organizations there, don't have a bigmouth trumpeting their events and accomplishments like SAL does, but they're all doing good things in a quiet way. So if you see a bake sale, play, Melodrama, Fiddle Contest, or Oktoberfest or other events going On in town that might cost a few bucks, chances are that some Volunteers are working pretty hard for the benefit of others. Maybe you have some time to contribute to a favorite cause, but if you don't, a few dollars go a long way in helping out. One of the things that I love about living in a small community like Julian is that even the simplest act of kindness or charity goes a long way. I don't really make things up, at least in this column anyway. e [ AMERICAN LEGION I i LINCOLN DEMING POST 468 I OtElV To T,= I'00|LIC BAKED BREADED CHICKEN Mashed Potatoes, Country Gravy, Veggies, Tossed Green Salad, -+ Friday, June 24, 2011 5:30 until 8:00 or until sold out www.j ulian Non Profit Donation 2nd and Washington Julian Ca.
