Two peas in a cloud
Friday was a bittersweet day. A longtimefamily friend and co-worker of my father’swas laid to rest.This man had been a fixture in my life grow-ing up. I would often stop by the Marathonstation after school and hang out. There hewould be, dressed in his work clothes, anunfiltered Camel hanging from his lips and abig smile — always a big smile.Dave Kiggins was a mechanic, a husband,a father, a grandfather, a brother, a son. Heloved to camp and stayed busy with his fam-ily. He and my father had a lot in common.Dave had been in a car accident in hisyounger years and walked with a limp. Itnever slowed him down. He was alwaysupbeat, friendly and loved to help people. Thelimp was the only sign of his hardship.He was also dedicated to his job and hisfamily. You would be hard-pressed to findsuch loyalty today.When I got older, my favorite times at thestation were Saturday afternoons, the floor-scrubbing day. After the last car left the bay,the floor was swept and then hosed down. Thesoap came next and everyone within 10 feet of a broom was expected to grab it and get mov-ing. The grease and oil from the week’s workwould disappear.That was also the time we all let our hairdown and had a little fun. We’d slide aroundamong the bubbles and joke with each other.Dave always enjoyed a little ribbing and hegave as good as he got.As I visited with his family Friday, itbrought back a lot of memories; not just fromthe gas station. Dave and Delphia attendedmy high school graduation and my weddingreception. They were an extended family. Itwas a delight to see them out and about; tocatch up.They are good people. They care aboutothers and wish them well. They make themost of what they have and what they have ispriceless — each other.I was surprised at how much older his chil-dren were. How funny is that? I guess some-times we don’t realize that the whole time weare growing up, everyone else does, too.As I stood with his oldest son, we talkedabout how much his dad loved working oncars and how hard it was for him to slow downand take it easy.“I can tear apart a car and put it backtogether. He taught me that. I will miss him,”he turned as said to me.“You’ll always miss him,” I said. “Becausehe was a good dad.”As I left, I told him I hoped his father andmine were in heaven together, working oncars. Who knows; maybe the Big Guy needs atuneup now and then.CLEVELAND (AP) —These Ohio lotteries weredrawn Friday:

Want some taste with that ice cream?
By MAE ANDERSONThe Associated Press
NEW YORK — Nonfatcheese that tastes like plastic.Low-calorie soda that leavesa bitter aftertaste. Sugar-freebrownies that crumble likeStyrofoam.Dieters have learned animportant lesson: When youtake the fat and calories outof your favorite treats, yousometimes have to say good-bye to the taste too.But snack brands likeDreyer’s/Edy’s ice cream,Hershey’s chocolate andLay’s potato chips are tryingto solve this age-old dieter’sdilemma by rolling out so-mid-calorie goodies that havemore fat and calories than thesnacks of earlier diet craz-es but less than the originalversions. They’re followingthe lead of soda companieslike Pepsi and Dr Pepper thatintroduced mid-calorie drinkslast year.It’s hard to isolate sales of mid-calorie snacks since theyalso usually have reduced fat,or other healthy attributes likereduced sodium. But sales of all foods and drinks in whichthe amount of things like fat,sugar, salt, carbohydrateshave been actively reducedduring production have risen16 percent to $51.72 bil-lion since 2006, accordingto research firm EuromonitorInternational.The mid-calorie trend ishitting at a time when com-panies that make sugary andsalty treats are being blamedfor the country’s expand-ing waistlines. The problemis that the same things thatmake snacks taste good —sugar, salt, calories — alsomake them fattening. Andmany Americans don’t wantto sacrifice taste at snacktime. Shaving a few caloriesenables companies to mar-ket their cakes, cookies andchips as healthier withoutthe stigma of bad taste thatgoes along with some low-fatproducts.It’s just the kind of market-ing that might attract MonicaOlivas. She says she wantsto lead a healthy lifestyle,including curbing her fat andcaloric intake as much as pos-sible. But most low-fat foods just don’t appeal to her.“Sometimes companies gotoo far and take out all thefat — and all the flavor,” saysOlivas, a 29-year-old recruit-er from Pico Rivera, Calif.A NEW ‘LIGHT’The mid-calorie trend isa toned-down version of the“light” craze that started inthe 1990s. Back then, “lowfat” or “no fat” was all therage. But the products oftenfizzled.For instance, McDonald’srolled out the McLeanDeluxe, a low-fat burger, in1991. But the burger, whichwas in part made with sea-weed, had dismal sales. Itdisappeared from restaurantswithin five years.Similarly, Lay’s in 1998introduced Wow fat-freepotato chips that use fat sub-stitute Olestra. But the ickfactor trumped healthinesswhen the Food and DrugAdministration said the chipshad to come with a warn-ing that Olestra may causeabdominal cramping, loosestools, and that it inhibits theabsorption of some vitaminsand other nutrients.The FDA dropped therequirement for the label in2004 after studying the mat-ter. The chips were renamed“Light,” but sales have notrecovered.“Originally, a lot of the dietstuff just wasn’t good,” saysRichard George, chair of thedepartment of food marketingat Saint Joseph’s University inPhiladelphia. “People wouldsay you could throw awaycontents and eat the box. Butthey’ve gotten better.”The new era of diet foodstarted in the last decade.In 2007, companies beganoffering 100-calorie packsof popular snacks like Oreoscookies and Twinkies cakes.That’s when brands startedputting their focus on reduc-ing calories — without anyflavor change.Turns out, there’s somescience behind all this calorieslashing. Nutritionists say it’snot necessary to cut out allthe “junk” foods in your cup-board or to take all the fat orcalories out of them.Reducing a nominal num-ber of calories in your dieteach day — even from thatmorning coffee run or after-noon visit to the vendingmachine for chips — is aneffective way to battle obesi-ty, says David Levitsky, pro-fessor of nutritional sciencesat Cornell University.A girl was born Sept.27 at Blanchard ValleyHospital in Findlay to Brettand Alice Warnecke of NewWashington.Grandparents includeMark and Elaine Warnecke of Delphos and Jim and ElaineSmith of New Reigel.
