Tractor-pull

benefit

TO THE EDITOR: The Adirondack tractor pullers would like to acknowledge and thank the sponsors who helped to make our tractor pull for the food shelf a success this past September.

We were able to provide $4,125 and 400 pounds of non-perishable food to five food shelves in the Clinton County area.

We would like to thank J Hogan Refrigeration, Peru Farm Center, Jeffords Steel, Sample Lumber, Bee Line Logistics, Maggy Pharmacy, LaBombard’s Restoration Saranac, David’s Repair Service, Peru, Tedfords Inc. in Saranac, Pete’s Wood ‘n’ Stuff, Banker’s Orchards, Tracy Trombley Construction, Versatile Trailer Sales, X-PLO/EZ STO, National Vision Associates, Chauvin Insurance Agency, Giroux Poultry, Dragoons Farm Equipment, Remember Me Pet Cemetery, Champlain Peterbuilt, Riley Ford, Warren Tire Service and Olympic Auto in Keeseville.

Without their support and the help of all the volunteers who stepped forward and contributed their time, this would not have been possible.

Again, thanks to all that helped to make it a success, and we will hope to make a bigger event this fall.

Salty

soup

TO THE EDITOR: Jan. 2 found me at CVPH lab for necessary blood work. I decided to try the hospital cafeteria once again for a cup of soup.

Several times in the past, I’ve considered the soup, but all three kettles showed sodium content too salty for me. Constant awareness of heart problems, fluid retention and high blood pressure has led me to rid my pantry of canned foods loaded with sodium.

It has been suggested in the hospital not to exceed daily sodium intake of 2,000 mgs. For me, it’s more attention to the fresh vegetable bins and a personal target of 1,500 mgs of sodium daily limit.

Throwing the salt shaker away is not an answer to all problems. However, there is evidence that rapid breathing and excess fluid in heart, ankles and limbs is appearing as a reduced problem.
