Weekly Wellness Tip

Heart disease and stroke, two of the top five leading causes of death in America have at least one thing in common, high cholesterol. Preventing, detecting and treating high cholesterol are key steps to take to prevent the onset of these two deadly diseases. Cholesterol is actually needed by our bodies to carry out various functions, yet an excessive amount leads to a buildup of the waxy, fat-like substance on the walls of your arteries, leading to blockage. There are two types of cholesterol, the good and the bad cholesterol. The good cholesterol is called high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and the bad cholesterol is called low-density lipoprotein. To help you differentiate between the two, just think remember we want our good cholesterol to be HIGH (HDL) and our bad cholesterol to be LOW (LDL). The best way to battle high cholesterol is to prevent it before it starts. Increase your intake of fiber and foods that contain polyunsaturated fats while avoiding saturated and trans fats in your diet, add movement to your day (exercise), maintain a healthy weight (balancing diet and activity) and do not smoke.

I've Been Back To School - Oct. 7th


ABATE - Peace River Chapter rides again! 

For 18 years the ABATE Peace River Motorcycle Club has ridden into the Charlotte County School District to drop off school supplies for the Teacher Supply Depot. Sunday, August 24, found numerous bikers with backpacks filled with goodies traveling down Hwy 41 to Education Way to be greeted by Mary Fred Clemmons, Executive Director of Charlotte Local Education Foundation. Johnny Martin, President of the local ABATE Club, presented Mrs. Clemmons with a check as she presented him a Certificate of Thanks. Every year we look forward to the generosity of this wonderful group.
