The Minnesota' pianist will be performing Sunday, May 16 at the Dawson/Boyd Memorial High School Auditorium. The concert begins at 3 p.m. Line will once again be bringing just five of her favorite musicians to accompany her, affectionately known as the "Fab Five". "My audience loves the intimacy and casualness of this show. Having just a few great players surround me allows for the piano to be the focal point. It's a beautifully elegant show, yet simple, and I think that's why my fans like this series so much," says Line. Line has been developing her "inti- mate series" tour for four years. Having now traveled to hundreds of smaller towns, the show has caught on and has become almost as popular and well attended as her holiday extrava- ganza that has been on the road tour- ing for over 20 years. This year's spring show will high- light Line's beloved original work as well as some favorite standards that she recorded over her long and suc- cessful career. She says fans always want to know what she will wear. Not to be disappointed, she will grace the stage with the latest and greatest in spring fashion from the top designers in the world.

Last week's trivia question: "What was the August 4, 1964 incident, in which the USS "Maddox" and USS "Turner Joy" were attacked by the North Vietnamese gunboats?" The answer is: "Gulf of Tonkin Incident." Until next week, .take care and ';Fair Winds and Following Seas!"- Wellness Solutions Chance Haugen, D.C. Butter vs. Margarine One of the healthiest whole foods you can include in your diet is butter. Despite unjustified warnings about saturated fat from well-meaning, but misinformed, nutritionists, the list of butter's benefits is indeed impressive. Butter is a rich source of easily absorbed vitamin A, which is needed for a wide range of functions in the body, ranging from maintaining good vision to keeping the endocrine system in top shape. Butter also contains all the other fat-soluble vitamins (E, K, and D). Butter is rich in trace minerals, especially selenium, a powerful antioxidant. Ounce for ounce, butter has more selenium per gram than whole wheat or garlic. Butter is also one of the rare foods that supplies an adequate amount of iodine which is needed by the thyroid gland. Butter has appreciable amounts of butyric acid, used by the colon as an energy source. This fatty acid is also a known anti-carcinogen. Lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid, is a potent antimicrobial and antifungal substance. Butter contains small but nearly equal amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. This excellent balance between omega 3 and omega 6 helps prevent the problems associated with excessive consumption of omega-6 fatty acids. 4 Despite all of the claims you may have heard, cholesterol is actually. needed to maintain intestinal health. Young people also need cholesterol for brain and nervous system development. Again, this emphasizes the need for cholesterol-rich foods for children. Human breast milk is extremely high in saturated fat and cholesterol. Standing in direct oiposition to all of these healthful qualities is margarine and assorted "vegetable oil spreads." While these may be cheaper, you'd never eat them again if you knew how they were made. All margarines are made from assorted vegetable oils that have been heated to extremely high temp- eratures. This causes the oils to become rancid. Next, a nickel catalyst is added, along with hydrogen atoms, to solidify it. Nickel is a toxic heavy metal and amounts always remain in the finished product. Finally, deodorants and colorings are added to remove margarine's horrible smell (from the rancid oils) and unappetizing grey color. If that is not enough, in the solidification process, harmful trans- fatty acids are created which are carcinogenic and mutagenic. Trans- fats are now known to cause heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and other degenerative diseases. In addition, trans-fats have been linked with lower birth weight of babies as well as declined fertility. Another common misconception propagated by modem industry is that the fat in butter is bad for us. Butter is comprised of mostly short and medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids can protect against cancer and boost immunity. They are also antifungal. Short and medium, chain fatty acids are also more easily broken down for energy, which means it is actually less likely that the fat in' butter will be stored in the body. I'm not saying that going out and eating a whole stick of butter is healthy, but in moderation it is ok. If you're trying to lower your cholesterol, it requires more than just cutting out saturated fat. It requires a " lifestyle change. All in all, you should '' not be eating margarine. Butter is by far the superior choice. [ PRINTING I 00Take advantageofthe available tax credits. I I At Its I I000000iiii Install a ground source heat pump!
