STORYPAGE 8
By Heather DeLong
 As much as many want this winterseason, full of freezing temperaturesand heavy snowfall, to turn into spring,the abundance of snowfall brings goodnews to the Great Lakes. 9 and 10 News recently reported that water levels are rising again in LakeMichigan and Lake Huron due to thegreat amounts of snow accumulationthis winter. They are increasing afterhitting an all-time low earlier in the year. According to the Michigan Sea Grantin Traverse City, both lakes went from27” below average to 17” below sinceJanuary. Precipitation, melting snow and evaporation all play a role in waterlevels.  When water levels are higher in theGreat Lakes, cargo ships can hold more weight and therefore carry more cargo. It is hard to predict what the waterlevels will be later on, due to theirdependency on varying weather factors.

By Heather DeLong More than 40 t-shirts designed by localsurvivors of domestic abuse and sexualassault will be exhibited at the North CentralMichigan College Library in Petoskey fromFebruary 10th, to February 21st. NCMC,partnered with the Women’s Resource Centerof Northern Michigan, will have the display available to the public as a part of OneBillion Rising, which is a global call to actionthat focuses attention on the fact that one inthree women will be beaten or raped in theirlifetime. The making of these shirts providesan outlet for survivors by breaking thecrimes’ silence, along with sharing personalstories in a unique and impactful way.The Clothesline Project is a program thatbegan on Cape Cod, MA in 1990. Its purpose was to address the issue of violence against women. The program is avehicle for women affectedby violence to express theiremotions by decorating ashirt, and then later hang theshirt on a clothesline to beviewed by others as a testi-mony to the problem of vio-lence against them. Withmuch support, the programhas spread world-wide. According to the Men’sRape Prevention Project in Washington DC, 58,000 sol-diers died in the Vietnam War. During that same peri-od of time, 51,000 women were killed, mostly by men who “loved” them. In 1990,that number became themotivation for women’sgroups on Cape Cod,Massachusetts to develop aprogram to seek a form of coping and prevention. That year, 31 shirts were displayedas a part of an annual “TakeBack the Night” March andRally. Since that time, theprogram has flourished. The Clothesline Projecthonors survivors as well asvictims of intimate violence. Any woman who has experi-enced this is encouraged todesign a shirt. Victim’s fami-lies and friends are alsoinvited to participate.Participating in this projectprovides a powerful step towards helping asurvivor break through the silence that hassurrounded her experience.Stop by NCMC to see the exhibit thismonth, and visit www.clotheslineproject.org for more information on the program.

Your heart willpump 5000 to 6000 quarts of blood per day. Over your lifetime, it will work harder than any othermuscle in your body. Cardiovascular disease is the number one causeof death for both men and women. About onemillion people in the United States die of heartdisease annually. Someone dies of cardiovasculardisease every 33 seconds. Cardiovascular diseaseaccounts for 1 in 4 of all deaths in the U.S. Attention to the issue of cardiovascular health hasmade a difference. Deaths from cardiovasculardiseases have dropped nearly 1 million per yearsince the 1960's, while the population has grownby more than 129 million. Women are less likely to believe cardiovasculardisease is a concern for them. It is important toknow your risks for cardiovascular disease.Cardiovascular disease is often preventable by changing the behaviors that can put you at risk. Adopting healthier habits - getting regular exer-cise, eating diets rich in fruits and vegetables, low in salt, saturated fat, and cholesterol - can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.  According to the American Heart Association, your risk for cardiovascular disease is greater if  you have diabetes, high blood pressure, high lev-els of bad cholesterol, are overweight or a smoker.Having diabetes as an adult doubles or evenquadruples the likelihood of heart disease or astroke. By controlling diabetes through lifestylechanges and/or medication, the risk of heart dis-ease is reduced. High blood pressure causes your heart to work harder with every beat. Women are more likely todevelop high blood pressure if they have a family history of heart disease, are 20 or more poundsoverweight, or have reached menopause. Highblood pressure can't be cured, but can be man-aged through lifestyle changes. High blood pres-sure can be controlled through maintaining ahealthy body weight and increasing physicalactivity and eating a diet low in saturated fat, sodi-um, cholesterol and alcohol. Cholesterol occurs naturally in the body. Overtime, the substance hardens, narrowing the artery  walls, reducing blood flow and causing blockagesresulting in blood clots. These clots can cause aheart attack or stroke. It is important to maintaincholesterol at healthy level for the health of yourheart. Strive to maintain overall cholesterol at 200mg/dl or below and LDL at 100 mg/dl or below. There is evidence that maintaining HDL, orhealthy cholesterol at 60 mg/dl or above can helpto remove plaque from the arteries. High levels of LDL or "bad cholesterol" can cause a build upalong the inside walls of the arteries. You mighthave a family history of high levels of LDL choles-terol, which can increase your risk as well. Lowerlevels of LDL can be achieved through eating adiet low in saturated fats, transfats and choles-terol. Being overweight, particularly carrying excess weight around the waist, increases the risk forheart disease. Excess weight makes the heart work harder, raises blood pressure, increases therisk of diabetes and increases levels of LDL (bad)cholesterol. Increase your activity levels and fol-low a healthy eating plan to lose weight.Exercising moderately for thirty minutes five daysper week can reduce the risk of heart disease by 30-40% and the risk of stroke by 25% over those who are not active. If you are a smoker, quitting is one of the bestthings you can do for your health. Smoking increases the risk of heart disease and stroke by 2to 4 times over non-smokers. Women who smokehave a 25 percent higher risk of developing heartdisease than male smokers. Overall, smoking willreduce your life expectancy by 13 or more years. Learn your risk factors for heart disease during  American Heart Month and commit to taking good care of your heart for years to come.
