Contestants were eval- uated by a panel of judges who con- sidered both speech content and delivery. the Beach Legion Post.

Paige is eligible to compete in the Eighth District contest to be held in Belfield on Dec. 7 at 1 p.m., where the winners of Post contests will vie for prizes of the same magnitude. All about heartburn, acid reflux, GERD When does heartburn become a medical concern? Three out of 10 people experience heartbum occasionally. But if you begin to regularly notice heartburn, stomach upset and a feeling of tasting foods again as you regurgitate them, your heartburn likely has advanced to a state known as acid reflux or GERD (gas- troesophageal reflux disease). Acid made by your stomach cells may be flowing backwards into the esophagus, causing these symptoms. What is the difference between acid reflux and GERD? GERD is a more advanced form of acid reflux. In addition to heartburn, symptoms include hoarseness, diffi- culty swallowing and chest pain. The constant irritation of the esophagus can also cause inflammation and other complications such as bleeding or prob- lems breathing. GERD is chronic and progressive. What can I do to decrease heart- burn? Avoid foods and drinks in general that trigger heartburn: fatty or fried foods, tomato based foods, alcohol, chocolate, mint, garlic, onion and caf- feine. Eat small meals more frequently rather than large meals in one sitting. Avoid eating at least three hours before going to bed. Don't take naps or lie down after eating. Don't wear tight clothes that pressure your waist and ab- domen. Maintain a healthy weight. Brook Nelson, MD Avoid all tobacco products. Is there an effective medicine I can use? Over-the-counter treatments pur- chased at a local drug store can be help- ful. Antacids such as Maalox, Mylanta, Rolaids and Tums neutralize stomach acid. Medications that reduce acid pro- duction don't work as quickly, but they provide longer relief from discomfort. Examples of these include Zantac, Pro- tonix, Tagamet and Prilosec. When should I see a doctor? If heartburn and acid reflux occur at least twice each week or symptoms be- come unmanageable, make an appoint- Judges this year were Ruth John- Ind., next spring when 55 winners of The West Region contest will again son of Belfield, and Richard all LegionDepartmentcontestsvie be held in Watford City at l p.m. Belfield School's Honor Rnll Kukowski and Harvey Peterson of for the top scholarship of $18,000, CST on Jan. 11.. ,v Belfield School's Honor Roll for Maggie Fulton, Alexa Hanna, Lil- d  the first quarter: lianna Hanson, McKenna Haverluk, Concerne varents can schedule screening STRAIGHT A: Colton Boltz, Chandler Hushka, Jordan Hutzen- Seth Obritsch, Rachael Solberg biler, Ty Janda, Liegha Johnson, The West River Student Services to help identify infants and children Parents who are concerned that A HONORS: ChristianAnheluk, Phoenix Johnson, Chantel Kessel, with delays in growth and develop- ment who may need supports and/or services.

State: Hepatitis C investigation progressing BISMARCK The North Dakota Department of Health re- cently received laboratory test re- suits for additional hepatitis C tests performed in the Minot area in Oc- tober. . The results:onfizmthat, eight additional people have the related strain of the virus, bringing the total number of hepatitis C cases in this outbreak to 35. The department emphasized that these cases do not represent recent infections, but are part of the original outbreak inves- tigation. The Department of Health re- minds residents they cannot catch hepatitis C the same way you can catch a common cold or other virus. Hepatitis C is usually spread when blood from a person infected with the hepatitis C virus enters the body of someone who is not infected. The hepatitis C virus is not spread by sharing eating utensils, hugging, kissing, holding hands, coughing, or sneezing, and it is not spread through food or water. You cannot catch hepatitis C from visiting with someone or being around someone who has the virus unless the blood of that person comes in contact with your blood. That does not hap- !pen under normal, everyday cir- ,cumstaces .......... -,, . . .... The invetigati, gn in ,Minqt ,corl- tinues. According to Tracy Miller, state epidemiologist for the Depart- ment of Health, "At this time, we have made progress in analyzing data, which has helped narrow the focus of the investigation. How- ever, we have not conclusively identified the source; as soon as we have clearer information concern- ing the outbreak, we will share that with the health community and the public." As part of the investigation, the Department of Health has tested approximately 500 people who may have had exposure to the virus that is the focus of this outbreak. Those blood tests have been sent to labo- ratories for further analysis. The department continues to contact HOW TO SHARE YOUR VIEWS We welcome letters to the editor concerning issues of area interest or regarding stories and editorials that have been published.

A doctrf can diaghose the extent of your problem and prescribe stronger prescription medications or a combina- tion of medications. An EGD (esopha- gogastroduoi]dnoscopy) may be recommended for more accurate diag- nosis or, in some cases, to treat symp- toms. EGD is a minimally invasive proce- dure that makes it possible to view the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum using a telescopic instrument with a tiny camera mounted on it. It's important to diagnose GERD correctly and take steps to control it because GERD can lead to esophageal cancer. If surgical re- pair is a consideration, you will need an EGD first. Does surgery cure GERD? There are surgical options for the treatment of GERD. Surgery may be recommended if other non-surgical treatment isn't effective or if other com- plications begin to accompany GERD. Laparoscopic fundoplication is one of the most common operations per- formed for refractory GERD symp- toms. (Brook Nelson, M.D., is a board cer- tiffed general surgeon at Sanford Health Dickinson Clinic. She com- pleted a medical degree and residency in general surgery at the University oJ Missouri-Kansas City School of Medi- cine. Nelson performs EGD procedures and laparoscopic operations for the treatment of GERD.) . Did you know?
