il I III I Bourbon / Leasburg Cuba Free Press -January 2..004 -.Page 2c ?'7" Mayor Mary's Minutes By Mary Heywood We have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have a suspect in the recent inci- dent of someone impersonating a city worker and stealing from a homeowner, and it is not anyone local. Within two days, Bourbon police had the name and description of a man who is wanted by several other communities for the same type of crime. The bad news is that they haven't caught him yet. Jefferson County almost had him, but he got away. I feel much better knowing it was no one local, but we have to stay cautious. Please insist on seeing picture identification from anyone at your door who claims to be from the city. The city council had a busy meeting last week. Several important topics were discussed. They hired Archer Engineering to start planning for the water system upgrade; and voted to let the bids on the water tank repair. They voted to hold a public hearing on the annexation of Lakewood Mobile Home Park and / heard the details of the subdivision planned for the southeast side of town. They also promoted Officer Mathenia to Assistant Chief and approved the hiring of Cody Robertson as a new police officer. Cody comes from Robertsville, and has a grandfather and two uncles who are police officers in St. Louis. We welcome him to the force. Our police explorer post is growing and hav- ing lots of fun. Officer Metcalf is doing a fine job of keeping them active and interested. Activities like this are so important to our youth, especial- ly those who are not involved in sports. If any- one else is interested in starting an explorer post, please let me know. We've got the kids, all we need are some adults who will be the advi- sors. The filing for the elections has closed. Alderman Roseman, Alderman Bowersox, and City Collector Wanda Davis are unopposed in their re-election bids. There are four candidates for mayor, which is good--this is a democracy, citizens should have a choice. Didja Know By Alice Bremer Didja Know we are almost "ice-bound" as Mother Nature took her turn for the worst--but maybe now our little great- grandsons will get a chance to use those pull-sleds we gave them for Christmas? We really can't complain too much though as it the first month of winter has not been bad at all here in Bourbon. We have watched some of the news about snow and ice storms across the upper states, and realize that we have been for- tunate, so far. Didja Know we want to say, "Congratulations," to Ted B.mmer of Bourbon who was lnored with a 50 year mem- bership pen from the Sullivan Masonic Lodge #69.

Here is some help for sailing through winter with flying colors. Some of these tips might seem trite, but don't knock it until you try it. 1. Smile. Even if you're hav- ing a bad day. Think of at least one thing to smile about and remember, it takes more ener- gy to frown. Just the act of smiling can boost your energy. 2. Breathe. Close your eyes, sit or stand up straight and slowly inhale through your nose. Relax your stomach and gradually expand the diaphragm. Hold for a count of five, then exhale through your mouth while contracting your diaphragn and stomach mus- cles. It may help to bend over a little to fully exhale. Repeat 10 times. 3. Affirm. Make up a self- It's a New Year and Second Grade has some goals for 2004. I plan to higher my level in reading to 2.9. I will read more. I want to read Junie B. Jones books.

Helen Ruwwe My plan for New Year is to behave for my morn because I'm usually bad. My goal is to be nice to my brothers because they are nice to me. Tiffany Montgomery This year I would like to be a better sister. I would not yelling at them and not telling them what to do. Ashley DeGonia This year I would like to make a lot of friends. I will have to be nice to them and help them out. And to make a friend you have to be a friend! affirmation like, "I will not worry, I am at peace, God loves me, or I can do anything I set my mind to." Repeat it to your self every day to keep a posi- tive outlook. 4. Sing. Singing draws more oxygen into your body, enhanc- ing mental clarity and banish- ing fatigue. 5. Use Aromatherapy. Light a scented candle or carry a mint to sniff, or keep a bottle of spearmint or geranium essen- tial oil handy. Place a few drops on a tissue and inhale deeply. 6. Spritz. Keep a spray bot- tle of cool water with you. A quick spritz on your face will instantly revive energy and hydrate your skin. 7. Lot in the light. Boost your energy is with natural light. Open the curtains, lift the shades, add a few lamps with full spectrum light bulbs, and let the sun shine in. 8. Drink cold water. Drink a large glass of cold water or tea. It will shock your system into alertness. BES Stories Daisy Tucker This year I would like to get my goals higher by reading more. I want my goals to be 100%.

"I was short of breath and had chestpains. 9 A stress test revealed that her heart was not pumping blood efficiently enough to meet her needs, so her physician referred her to the Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan cardiopulmonary rehab program. Experienced nurses and therapists mapped out an individualized program for Betty. She began a supervised cardiovascular workout at the hospital in April 2003. "The staff was wonderful," Betty says. "They encouraged me so much." Betty has finished her rehabilitation program, and she plans to continue her exercise regimen at the hospital. The results have surprised her. "I am amazed! This is the best thing that has ever happened to me!" she says. Shopping trips, climbing stairs or walking up the hill to retrieve her mail are no longer physical impossibilities. "I can do anything I want," Betty says. For more infonnation about the Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Cardiac Diagnostics program, please call $75-468-2995.
