Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 SA Sign-ups underway for ski team The Central Plumas Recre- ation and Park District has announced that sign-ups are underway for its Johnsville Junior Ski Team. The ski team is open to students from second through eighth grades, countywide. "This is one of those great winter sports where boys and girls can develop and apply ski rac- ing skills in a very supportive team environment-we wel- come all age-appropriate youth at just about all skill levels,', said recreation and park district general manager Jim Boland. The, Johnsville Jr. Ski Team was formed in the late 1980s as part of the statewide Buddy Werner Ski Racing program. During those early years the junior ski team both trained and raced at the Johnsville Ski Hill. Volun- teer parents, local sponsors, teachers and civic-minded residents all joined together to make the JJST one of the most successful programs in the state, according to Boland. The ski program director, Mike Wood, and coaches, af- ter evaluating skills of new skiers will draft each of them to one of the six teams, striv- ing to ensure a fair age and skill balance between the groups. During the regular ski season, the teams that race against each other in friendly competition over se- lect weekends in January, February and March. The ski racing season culminates in late March with the Buddy Werner Championships. With the Johnsville Ski Hill operations experiencing a temporary hiatus due to the need for upgraded equipment and improved access, the ju- nior ski team currently prac- tices and races at ski resorts near Lake Tahoe. "We remain hopeful that sufficient grant and other funds can be se- cured to restore the Johnsville Ski Hill for future operations," Boland added. To participate in the junior ski program, youth must own or have access to skis, boots and poles, warm winter jack- et, gloves, goggles, sun glass- es, safety helmet and warm hat, according to Wood. In ad- dition, skiers must be able to demonstrate the capacity to put on and take off their skis, as well as the ability to make basic turns and stop within a reasonable distance. For youth that have the de- sire but not quite sufficient skills, the ski team offers the opportunity to participate on the Development Team. While on the Development Team, skiers will acquire the neces- sary skills at their own pace eventually graduating to a rac- ing team, when they are ready. There currently are volun- teer positions open on both the racing teams (coach or as- sistant coach) and the Devel- opment Team. Limited regis- tration or race scholarships may be available. Registrations for the Johnsville Junior Ski Team will continue to be accepted by the Central Plumas Recre- ation and Park District through Dec. 17. For more in- formation regarding partici- pation on the Johnsville Jr. Ski Team or to discuss a pos- sible coaching position, con- tact Jim Boland at the district office, 283-3278. "B Cancer survivors invited to join group Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Isatchwell@plumasnews.com Cancer survivors who have had cancer more than once are invited to participate in an online education and sup- port group that is part of a Stanford University study, "Cancer: Thriving and Sur- viving." The online community of cancer survivors is especially useful to Plumas County resi- dents as it offers opportuni- ties that do not exist locally. The online group will en- roll participants from across the United States who have had cancer at least twice and have completed treatment in the past five years. Partici- pants'will need access to a computer, Internet and e- mail. Participants who meet the study qualifications and are interested in participating may get more information and sign up online at cancer- survivors.stanford.edu or by e-mailing cancersur- vivors@stanford.edu. Cancer survivors lead the workshop and study. It offers "a community in which to share problems, hopes, fears and inspirations" with other people who have had a simi- lar experience and are likely to understand it. The workshop can help can- cer survivors with the physi- cal, emotional and mental as- pects of surviving cancer. They will learn ways to man- age stress and fear, as well as techniques for managing fa- tigue, pain and the effects of treatment. During the course of the workshop, participants also set goals and work toward them, exploring better ways to talk to your friends and family about your cancer and connected health issues. Perhaps most important, they can share, give and re- ceive support from people who have gone through what they've gone through, people who understand Without ex- planation. Participants will be as- signed to begin the workshop right away or in six months. Each workshop will include approximately 25 group mem- bers, facilitated by two mod- erators, at least one of whom is a cancer survivor. There will be two follow-up questionnaires about partici- pants' health over a six- month period. Participants may log on anytime during the week, and it takes approximately 2-3 hours per week to com- plete an easy-to-follow online session. One of the moderators said members come away with an increased sense of power over their lives and practical skills to help them live a full life. Hunter safety classes to begin next week M.

'" The Wellness Column  Presented by Christopher W. Anderson, DC WHEN When should I go? When shouldn't !? These are common questions. They are difficult and easy to answer, To go or not to go, that is usually a dilemma. What should be asked is why am I going? If you had a leaky oil pan on your car and noticed drops of oil on your driveway, you might suspecl that something is wrong Ignoring the drops could lead to your engine running out ofoil and being severely damaged. This would cost yon lots of money. Taking your car to have the oil changed every three thousand miles would catch this problem and hopefully you would act on it and have it repaired preventing the high cost of engine repair and the inconvenience it would cause. Consulting with a chiropractor is similar, We all seem to have these day-to-day symptoms that we "live" with. (This is especially true if you are over 30.) These day-to- day aches can be analogous to the drops of oil. Consulting with a chiropractor and having an exam to see what is actually causing these symptoms can prevent a major flare up and inconvenience. The doctor will detemfine if: a) They can help you: b) They cannot help you and you need to see another doctor. Some obvious times not to consult with a chiropractor would be: a) You are bleeding and bones are sticking out; b) You are having an emergency of such magnitude that the paramedics are being su'mmoned: c) You are dead. This may seem funny but it is not. I've had many people call me with complaints that needed emergency room service, I'm glad they called and I was able to direct them to the proper services. Many times people seek chiropractic care for those chronic problems or non-life- threatening acute disorders (sprain/strains, whiplash, moved wrong). According to the federal government who studied a common problem -- low back pain -- a consultation and treatment with a chiropractor is one of the safest and most effective treatments available for low back pain. And today, more and more people are calling a Chiropractor when they aren't in pain. This is the new model of health that is now emerging. They seek consultation about exercise, nutrition, sleep, posture, attitude, the condition of their spine and their nervous system. They can't afford to be sick or injured so they are practicing PREVENTATIVE or WELLNESS care. The old model of'fix it when it breaks' has proved to be very costly and has not improved the health of the citizens. It is sad to say that the US health index of its citizens ranks 19th to 21st compared to the rest of the world. So when is it time to see a chiropractor? TODAY Get checked and prevent problems. Improve your health. Don't be headed down the road of risk-taking and sickness. By all means if you are severely injured go to the emergency room. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, call us at Anderson Chiropractic. at (530) 832-4442. Now seeing patients in Quincy and Ponola.
