r October 18, 2012 Page 7 ( Two of a kind This pair of scarecrows is one of the creative entries in the Pumpkin Festival in Beach on Oct. 7. (GVN Photo) V o prom "Thai apple tree is #mazing. Look at this apple!" my older daughter exclaimed as she held up a large, bright red apple. She had just come inside after using our apple picker to pluck some of the brightest red fruits high in tile tree in our backyard. "We can make lots of things with apples, can't we'?" I respond- ed. I noted the bags of apples wait- ing to be consumed or given away. Our family was making use of all sorts of devices to pick and process our apples. My daughter was turning the handle of our apple peeler-corer-slicer device, and rib- bons of apple peelings were falling into the sink. I was making apple crisp with my younger daughter using my older daughter's peeled apples. We were using a steam juice extractor to make juice for apple jelly. Apple slices were in the food dehydrator. My husband had start- ed a batch of apple wine in our fer- menting equipment. Later, l overheard my husband comment to my daughter, "Do you smell the apples cooking'? You'll remember this aroma all your life.'~ We have many apple choices in the U.S. Of the more than 7,500 varieties grown worldwide, 2,500 varieties are grown in the U.S. Apples often are used as the symbol of good nutrition. We've all heard the "'apple a day keeps the doctor away" rhyme, ls there any wdidity to it? Turns out, many studies have revealed health benefits of eating more,apples. Based on the research, however, we may want to 'put our apple peeler-corer-slicer devices aside at least sometimes and eat the skin as well as the rest of the apple. We probably want to drink apple juice more often, too. Many cancer-fighting phyto- chemicals (plant chemicals) are c0ncefltrated in apple skin. Cornell University researchers showed that about 3 ounces of an unpeeled fresh apple provides the antioxi- dant activity of 1,500 milligrams of vitamin C. Researchers have reported that regularly eating apples can help lower blood cholesterol, which in turn can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. University of California-Davis researchers reported that eating two apples or drinking 12 ounces of apple juice a day protected arteries from plaque b~ildup. Other studies have linked eating apples to improving lung health by lowering the risk of, developing asthma and lung cancer. Eating five apples per week was reported as the amount needed for the health benefits. Apples also may reduce the risk of prostate or colon cancer and diabetes. Apples are a nutritional bargain. A large apple has about 130 calo- ries, 34 grams of carbohydrate and 5 grams of dietary fiber. An apple also provides 8 percent of the daily recommendation for vitamin C. Fiber-rich apples may help "fill us up" and therefore help with weight maintenance. In a study conducted in Rio de Janeiro, over- weight women who ate the equiva- lent of three small apples or pears lost more weight on a low-calorie diet compared with those who did not include the fruit. Enjoy more apples in particular and more colorful fruits and veg- etables in gen.eral. Remember, adults should aim for about 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables per day.

Henry Gervmg, commander Harley Salzman Post No. 5, Beach Thanks to hunters and wildlife management To the editor: Seventy-live years ago, decades of dronght and poor wildlife man- agement had left populations of game animals like bighorn sheep at dangerously low levels in North Dakota. In response to pressure from hunters, Congress took action in 1937, passing the Pittman-- Robertson Act, an excise on the sale of hunting equipment - including guns. ammunition, archery supplies and other gear. In 2012, over $3.5 million was returned to North Dakota to fund wildlife manage- ment, hunter training courses and the conservation of wiktlifc habi- tats. The size of the apportionment is based on the state's land area and the number of licensed hunters, and spending phms are proposed by the North Dakota Game and Fish l)eparmtent to the secretary of the interior for approval. Over the years, programs under- taken because of this act have increased wildlife populations and preserved thousands of acres of habitat. And thanks to that, hunting today is better than ever. In 1975, North I)akota had its first modern day bighorn sheep season, which continues today. Thanks to the sup- port of hut~ters, North Dakota's Game and Fish Department has the resources to conserve wildlife habi- tats for years to come. Terri Thiel Executive Director I)ickinson Convention & Visitors Bureau Hunting Works for ND - mem- ber State urges everyone to get vaccinated BISMARCK - The North l)akota Department of Health is reminding all North Dakotans of the importance of getting vaccinated against the flu, according to Molly Howell, Immunization Program manager for the Department of Health. "There is plenty of flu vaccine this year, sd we are urging everyone to get vaccinated to avoid influenza, regardless of age or health status," Howell said. "Getting vaccinated is the easiest and most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu. Even if you don't feel the need to be vaccinated to pl'otect yourself, everyone is close to someone who is at high risk for complications due to influenza, so you still should be vaccinated." In North Dakota, influenza activ- ity begins in the fall and typically peaks in March or April. Health officials say that people can get vac- cinated anytime during the influen- za season, but the best, time to get vaccinated is now, when flu activity is low. During a news conference held today at the Golden Ages Senior Center in Mandan, Pat and Arvin Swanson of Minor talked about the importance of getting vaccinated and received their flu shots. Pat and Arvin are great-grandparents and talked about the importance of pro- tecting both themselves, and their Please support your local merchants WW-k- W W'k- W W W W W W W W W W W W W W W W W W Researcher~Statistician Dynamic individual to conduct research & policy evaluation which informs schools, ~. ~K ~ policy makers & the public on the outcomes ot ~K "--" educa#on & wo~ pattP.Apants in ND. ~jt~.~!tl ~rNetworkTechnician.ave Design& Management of Cabling Mfrasb~ucture :~ ~r, for Voice & Data Networks.

"Being healthy is important to us because we spend a lot of time with our grandchildren and great-grand- children," said Pat Swanson of Minor. "It's also important for peo- ple my age to get vaccinated, because we all are at risk of getting severely ill if we would catch the flu." The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recom- mends that everyone age 6 months and older be vaccinated against the flu, especially the fbllowing people at high risk for complications: All children ages 6 months through 4 years All adults 50 and older Residents of long-term care facilities People of any age who have long-term health problems, such as: o Heart disease. o Lung disease. o Kidney disease. o Diabetes. o Asthma. o Anemia. o Weakened immune systems due to HIV/AIDS and cancer treat- ments. o Breathing problems due to neuromuscular disorders. Pregnant women American Indians/Alaska Natives People who are morbidly obese The flu shot is awfilable to all people age 6 months and older. The nasal flu vaccine is approved for healthy people ages 2 to 49 that are not pregnant. The intradermal flu vaccine is approved for people ages 19 to 64. People who could spread the dis- ease to those at high risk - such as health-care workers, out-of-holne caregivers, parents and caregivers of infants younger than 6 months and household contacts - also should be vaccinated. "'Custer Health in Mandan is pre- pared to kick-off prevention efforts to control the influenza virus," said Heather Weaver with Custer Health. "'We have several walk-in flu vac- cine clinics planned throughout October and two clays available by appointment. Get vaccinated now so that you will be protected when- flu season begins."
