Pass the spinach, skip heart disease
SANTA FE, NM—Scientists have offered still more evidence that your mother was on to something when she told you to eat your vegetables.
A stuffy shows women who ate plenty of spinach, carrots and other fruits and vegetables high in certain vitamins cut their stroke risk by 54 percent
Another study reported Thursday found that men with similar diets were 30 percent less likely to die of heart disease.
Hie findings—outlined at an American Heart Association epidemiology meeting— are the latest in a growing body of statistical evidence that has dwwn the benefits of the so-called antioxidant vitamins: vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene, a relative of vitamin A
Researchers now plan to see if vitamin tablets can provide similar benefits.
“The evidence is really mounting that antioxidants really protect against cardiovascular events," such as heart attacks and strokes, said Dr. Joann Manson of Harvard und especially strong benefits of spinach and carrots, both potent sources of antioxidants.
Inman: Water events to have minimal impact on area
By ROSE MARIE EASH Herald-Zeltung
The Olympic Festival events to be held in Comal County will have a minimal impact on the community with virtually no costs to the county, Water Oriented Recreation District Officials said Thursday.
"Most of this festival is taking
place in San Antonio,” WORD manager James H. Inman said during a commissioners court workshop.
"The events out here are ... more modestly sized. They're trying to create as low an impact on the area as|>088ible,” he said.
“They're being very considerate of the outfitters and the local businesses both on the lake and
at the river so as not to interrupt their businesses,” Inman said.
The festival is scheduled to begin July 23 and the events at Canyon Lake are scheduled for July 25-28 and July 30-31.
The Guadalupe River Whitewater events will be held July 29.
During the workshop, Judge Carter Casteel said that the first
Canyon Lake water study group meeting will be held at 9 a.m. March 20 at the Canyon Lake Action Center.
In regular session, Comal County Commissioners appointed James Hanley of Bulvivde'to replace Constable Bo Boff who resigned last week.
The court also approved a resolution opposing the fourth
degree felony proposal being considered by state legislators.
In other business the court:
* Accepted $1,941.74 from Bexar Metro 9-1-1 for computer hardware and software purchase for the Emergency Management Plan.
• Approved a proclamation naming March 21-27 Inhalant Awareness Week.
Prominent women endorse Krueger for Senate
‘AUSTIN — Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Krueger’s wife, Kathleen, and other supporters have formed a women's steering committee for his election campaign.
Mrs. Krueger said Thursday that Texas women have a ‘strong advocate” in her husband.
"Not only is Bob committed to Texas women and their families, he's already proved himself a leader in the U.S. Senate for us,” she said, citing anti-stalking legislation filed fay her husband since his appointment to the Senate by .Gov. Ann Richards.
Krueger is sponsoring the federal measure after his family was stalked for years by a former employee. The Kruegers also have supported similar legislation at the state level.
Krueger, who took the Senate spot left when Lloyd Bentsen became U.S. Treasury secretary, faces a tough fight to keep the post in the May I special election.
About a dozen other candidates
already have said they're running.
Women supporting him plan to take out newspaper advertisements, host campaign events and speak out about the candidates* records.
Among those listed on the 200-member steering committee are former first lady Lady Bird Johnson; Sarah Weddington, who argued the Roe vs. Wade case establishing the right to abortion; Lis Carpenter, former press secretary to Mrs. Johnson; Peggy Romberg, a longtime advocate for reproductive health care and for the right to choose abortion; former Tues secretary of state Ntyra McDaniel; and several state lawmakers.
The campaign also released a list of such "women's issues” as the right to abortion; lifting the "gag rule” prohibiting doctors in federally fonded clinics from giving abortion information; Head Start and child immunization programs; child care; and a measure to provide unpaid leave in cases of seriously ill family members or
Krueger supports all the issues, and his campaign contrasted his record with three top GOP candidates: U.S. Reps. Joe Barton of Ennis and Jack Fields of Humble, and Texas state treasurer Kay Bailey Hutchison.
The Krueger campaign said Fields and Barton opposed all the issues, and Mrs. Hutchison opposed most.
It put question marks beside the gag nile and Head Start-child-hood immunisation categories for Mrs. Hutchison.
"A woman who does not support women's issues is no friend to women,” said Rep. Debra Dan-burg; D-Houston, a Krueger supporter.
