August 2, 2012 Weighing in y ' scant two pounds, I have slipped inadvertently into the "fat category as del'ined by the Body Mass Index. That makes me partly responsible for the 80 percent increase in the nulnber of fat and obese people in North Dakota over the past 15 years. Some folks are tat because they don't have the spunk to fight their ancestral genes; others are fat because they were raised on French flies and carbohydrates; still others are fat because they stopped working and kept eating. Regardless of the alibi, tat creates all kinds of public problems. Treating obese patients is terribly expensive. I heard tlt an obese per- son with aiipendicitis made it neces- sary for the Williston hospital to call a fracking engineer from the oil field to help find the inflamed organ. Do you have any idea what a fracking engineer costs? At the Fargo airport, an obese gentleman had to go through the body scanner twice to get total body coverage. In a fit of mindless courage, Mayor Mike Bloomberg announced that New York was taking charge of the fat problem by banning soda (pop) sales of over 16 ounces to kids. Of course, the guzzlers and their mothers protested. 'qt's nobody's business if we let Wilderness A trip into the geologic past will be the focus of the fourth Wilderness Hike of the stunlner season on Sunday, August 5 in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The hike will venture into the petrified forest area ot' the park's North Unit, traveling to a remote and seldom visited area of the park. "'Theodore Roosevelt National Park contains the third largest con- centration of petrified wood in the U.S.," said Superintendent Valerie on the obesi :y problem E H Ill Jl the°fC°ke' m°unt'tiu Dew'Pepsi andlike. The first rule of economics is that people respond to incentives so • "" s,', i!. "'i . ," ." " nlaybe we should start there. °u'ietl getltnottl]2'!:sted Folks wbo are now fattening up on ca,'bohydrates should be encour- aged to divert their tastes to fruits and vegetables. Since North Dakota's fruit-raising is limited, we should get back to gardening vegeta- bles. In World War I1, everyone was encouraged to raise a "victory" gar- den. We ran Hitler down a hole with carrots, beets and cabbage. If "'victo- ry" gardens could win the war against fascism, it could win the war against lat. As an incentive for reluctant gar- deners, we should include home- grown vegetables in the next farm bill. After all, farmers are being paid to raise tbod so why shouldn't town people be subsidized to raise vegeta- bles. We may have to offer larger subsidies for those vegetables with the fewest calories, e.g. kohlrabi, radishes and lettuce. Nothing for watermekm and potatoes. We should be forewarned that there are people nmking big money on obesity. These powerful interest groups will oppose change. They will I'ight back because they think their bottom lines are more important than all other bottoms around. petrified forest First of all. Gallup lbund that a disproportionate number of less-edu- cated, low-income folks are obese. Carbohydrates are the cheapest foxJ around so they eat what they can afford. Obesity makes them vulner- able to a variety of illnesses and chronic diseases. Unforttmately, these are the same folks who have no medical insurance. That means their obesity illnesses end up as charity cases in hospitals, or onthe welfare program called Medicaid. or left unpaid in emer- gency rooms. Since there is no obese fairy, health care providers have to ,jack up the charges on all of the other paying customers to cover the losses. So if one person's behavior imposes a cost on another person's wallet, it can't be said that obesity is nobody's business. It sure is the business of the person with the wallet. Mayor Bloomberg may think that soda (pop) should be restricted, espe- cially for kids, but he is not conver- sant with America's experience with prohibition. Within days of the ban, blind pigs nm by 12 year-olds would be operating behind Ben Franklin Elemehlary, pushing 32-ounce jugs hike to focus on J. Naylor. "'Exploring the area with a ranger is an excellent way to visit this special place and gain insight into the park's geologic past." In addition to seeing geologic features, visitors will also experi- ence the quiet and solitude ol' the wilderness. Depending on group size and weather, the outing will last tom 3 to 6 hours, and will cover 2 to 6 miles. Hiking may be strenuous at times; participants should weal" attire appropriate for wilderness travel, especially star- dy boots and dnrable clothes. Hikers should meet at the picnic area in the Juniper Calnpground at 9:00 a.m. CDT. Participants should bring plenty of drinking water, food, sunscreen, and insect repellent and be prepared for hot, dry weather. Binoculars, cameras and a favorite poem or quote are also encouraged. In the case of extreme weather, the hike may be cancelled: please call the North Unit Visitor Center at 701-842- 2333 for the latest information.

Kimberly Nunberg City Auditor (August 2 and 9) Cattle producers BISMARCK - Nort h Dakota's top agricultui'e and animal health offi- cials are remlnding catle producers who send their livestock to pastures in other states that those animals must meet state importation regula- tions on both departure and return. Dr. Susan Keller. the state veteri- narian, said producers should work with an accredited veterinm-im to ensure that cattle will meet all requirements. "Drought may cause a severe shortage of forage in this state and others this year," said Agriculture Colnlnissioner Doug Goehring.

Attest: Leah Zook, Business Manager Gene Weinreis, Golva School Board President (August 2) reminded of-state livestock must likewise be sure those animals meet North Dakota ilnportation requirements. "Once cattle cross a state border, they may be considered to be a resi- dent of the state they are in," Keller said. "The returning importation requirements will vary depending on the state from which they are return- ing; how long they have been there and the extent they were comingled with other cattle." Goehring said the best option for some producers will be moving feed to the animals, rather than transport- of import requirements ing animals to the feed sources.

Heartfelt thanks are sent to all of those who gave so freely of their time to prepare the fairgrounds and make plans for the Med- ical Benefit held July 21. The bison, salads, and desserts were delicious. All who worked diligently to set up, serve, and clean never went unnoticed. The large variety of food provided, the array of auction items donated, and the amazing generosity of buyers are overwhelming. We are appreciative of the loving community, as well as family and friends from outside the area. Every day we think of the many people who worked so hard on the benefit to assist us with the medical expenses we have incurred over the past six months. 'Fatso' surely looked down, smiling, with his cap sitting a little cock-eyed and his shirttail hanging half out, wishing he could have been there to see everyone and thank you himself.
