October 7, 2009 The Julian News 11 • FISHING REPORT • News from Lake Cuyamaca Last Week's Results and This Week's Prognosis STOP AQUATIC HITCHHIKERS! " No Report From The Lake New Guidelines Include Medications For Treatment of Alcohol Dependence (NewsUSA) - Well-established ways to overcome alcoholism include counseling, 12- step recovery programs and addiction treatment centers. But government statistics show that 75 percent of people receiving conventional treatment for alcohol dependence relapse to heavy drinking within the first year of beginning treatment. A division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services .(HHS) has recently issued best-practice guidelines for the treatment of alcohol dependence. The guidelines, entitled "Incorporating Alcohol Pharmacotherapies Into Medical Practice," include for the first time the two most recent FDA- approved medications for alcohol dependence, naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension and acamprosate calcium. FDA-Approved Medications The FDA has approved medications for the treatment of alcohol dependence that offer treatment options in addition to traditional 12-step and counseling programs. Medications can act by blocking or interacting with certain receptors or biochemical effects in the brain of a person with alcohol dependence. Medications are used along with counseling to help a person stop drinking. One of the newly added medications in the HHS guidelines is an extended- release 'njection taken once a month. When medications are part of the treatment program along with counseling, a physician must consider whether the patient can reliably adhere to a daily pill regimen. A recent study analyzed the magnitude of challenges faced when prescribing oral pharmacotherapy for alcohol dependence.

But something is not quite right throughout the land. Take a look at a well-known symbol for this season and time. Where did the image of the cornucopia, the horn of plenty, come from? It seems traditionally American doesn't it? But.I must say its Greek to me. From that ancient land comes a most arresting myth which tells the tale of the struggle of Hercules to overcome a stubborn and dangerous bull whose form was assumed by a mighty river god as a test. The rampaging bull had been laying waste to the land and threatening its inhabitants who lived in fear. Something needed to be done. The daring Hercules accepted the challenge. He found the bull and met it head on, grabbing its horns, wrestling it to the ground, subduing it and tearing off one horn in the act. The bull was pacified and became a servant. The hero raised the broken horn in the air and from it flowed an abundant harvest of spectacular fruits for the people to receive. And so was born the horn of plenty. What does. the encounter between Hercules and the bull represent? Think of Hercules as the original archetype of the superhero. Within us each burns a little pilot light of caring awareness, a flickering flame of courage on the ready to ignite for a worthy cause our own version of coming to the rescue. All we need is a bigger vision and a challenging task with which to grapple. When conditions seem easy the hero within falls asleep in his armchair, letting the world go by. In perilous times he stirs and wakes. The ancient hero stands for that rising spirit in each of us which stirs to aid the world if given the necessary cause and condition. As for the bull this creature has long been associated with the human selfish acquisitive instinct in its unleashed state. "Worshi ping the golden calf" is one of its younger incarnations. Witness our current teetering system of muscular profit at the expense of helping people, of possessive wealth instead of conscious health, of, dirty oil instead of healthy soil, of traded military arms instead of thriving family farms. Look no further than the famous Wall Street statue of a massive bull, snorting and pawing the ground proudly from its location in front of the New York stock exchange. There you will see no statue of Hercules, the mighty servant of mankind. Where is he? Or rather where is the "he" that is "we?" Flying well beneath the radar of popular media, the urgent news is that a global food crisis is developing. Vast populations of the world are struggling as a result of a great imbalance in priorities. Out of an approaching population of seven billion people, one billion are under- nourished or chronically hungry while another one billion are over-nourished or chronically over-fed. Why is it that the under- nourished come from the major food producing nations? Why is it that the over-nourished reside in wealthier nations where fast food reigns supreme? Does this look like a serious imbalance? How can the scales be tipped aright? While the beast of acquisitive consumption has been rampaging the land there are signs that the hero of an awakening humanity is about to take the bull by the horns. InsTall towns and within big cities across the continent citizen co-ops are planting community gardens, forming alliances for helping those in need, initiating crop swapping systems, reintroducing the ,ancient concept of bartering, promoting farmer's markets and regionally grown food, educating the public about ecologically sound and sustainable food production. We are taking the bull by the horns, wrestling it down, tearing off the horn of aggressive materialism that our times may flow with something more benign and nourishing for all. This is the promise. There is a benevolence and generosity that runs beneath the appearance of things, like the flowing river god who for a time took the form of the bull of greed. We have had our fill of bull. We are opening out to the healing of the earth and the soul of humanity again. We have a beautiful place to begin--a small town where the benign heart of a community can be found beating strong. We are strong in heart and mind, strong in numbers united. We are an outpost of the world and also a world in the making. When money is tight and personal resources become scarce there is something we still have in plenty--a bountiful capacity for sharing, connection and mutual support, plus largesse of spirit for embracing buoyant possibilities with a call for transformative action. Let us be this flowing river of life, that benevolent spirit, this sharing generosity abounding with plentiful creativity. Let us raise our horn of plenty. Crop Swapping is coming to Julian. Broadly defined it is a way to get crops, products and services to those who can use them, with minimum waste in time and space. Our task is to establish connections of supply, i.e. who has what linked with those in need.
