He works with Mississippi DEQ to check out com- plaints from this county as well as educating the pub- lic to curtail illegal dump- ing. He reminded us of the fine for illegal dumping on public and also on private land and prosecution of the same. Plastic and styrofoam do not deteriorate and so will be there for years. He pointed out that the public serves as his eyes and ears to report such activity. Our county is a beautiful coun- ty, but roadways are often marred by litter and trash. We are encouraged to find a waste receptacle to stow our trash in as we travel. A question and answer time followed.

USS Mississippi Fast Attack Submarine Back At Pearl Harbor Friends and families of the USS Mississippi (SSN 782) crew gathered pier- side to welcome back the Virginia-class fast attack submarine as it returned from a six-month Western Pacific deployment to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, on March 30. The successful comple- tion of its Western Pacific deployment was attributed to the performance of its crew, said Cmdr. Eric Rozek, a native of St. Paul, Minne- sota, and Mississippi's com- manding officer. "The men and women of Mississippi worked excep- tionally hard to prepare and deploy to the Western Pacific," said Rozek. "Ad- ditionally, the crew was outstanding ambassadors, representing themselves, Mississippi, the Navy, and our nation as they worked together with our maritime partners and allies." During the deployment, 31 Sailors earned their submarine warfare quali- fication and 19 Sailors ad- vanced in rank While deployed, Missis- sippi made the first ever port visit by a U.S. Navy submarine to the port of Jeju, South Korea.

De, by Leanne McCrate, RD, LD, CNSC Helpful information on health issues and healthy eating. Dear Readers: We Americans eat a lot of sugar. Why? Because it tastes good. The American Heart Association recom- mends 6 added teaspoons a day for women and 8 teaspoons per day for men. While most Americans' con- sumption of sugar comes from soda pop, there is also hidden sugar in many foods. To be clear, we are talk- ing about added sugar, not naturally occurring sugar found in fruit (fructose) and milk (lactose). Sugar is not inherently bad for you; it's the excessive amount that becomes a problem. Lots of sugar means lots of calories, which may lead to weight gain and put one at great- er risk for certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. The Food and Drug Ad- ministration (FDA) re- quires food manufacturers to list all the ingredients in their food products on the label. Food labels also must list the amount of sugars in grams per serving. While most of us recognize sugar, or sucrose, there are other ingredients that are very similar to sugar and should be noted: Any food with sugar in its name, for example, coconut sugar or date sugar; Cane juice, Caramel; Dextrin; Dextrose; Fruit juice; Fruit juice concentrate; Glucose; Glucose solids; High fruc- tose corn syrup; Honey; Maltose; Molasses; Nectar, for example, apricot or aga- ve nectar; Sweet sorghum; Syrup and any food with syrup in its name, such as rice syrup or maple syrup. Here are some practical tips for decreasing sugar in your diet: Focus on fresh foods. These will not have added sugars. Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. These foods will provide fi- ber, vitamins and minerals, which will help with crav- ings. The fruit will also help satisfy a sweet tooth. If you like to have sweets in your everyday diet, try to limit it to 100- 200 calories per day. You may also consider saving dessert for once or twice a week. Spring is here and so are extended daylight hours, floating butterflies and stinging bees, along with underground utility lines that your shovels can hit but your eyes can't see. Since April is National Safe Digging Month, En- tergy Mississippi is re- minding you to call 811 before digging into your spring-cleaning list. The focus of Safe Digging Month is on preventing se- rious consequences that could occur from digging without knowing what's below the surface. Regard- less of what you plan to do, how deep you plan to dig or even if you've called before for a similar project, every job requires a call first. "It's just as important to locate underground utili- ties as it is to keep your distance from overhead power lines," said Robbin Jeter, Entergy Mississippi vice president of customer service. "Whether you're a homeowner, business owner or contractor, don't chance it and assume there isn't a utility line below. Avoid even close calls by dialing 811 before you dig - it's the law." Mississippi has its own 811 call center and website that can help you stay safe while digging. Call center representatives and the website can tell you how to submit requests to learn what utilities may be bur- ied beneath the ground, such as natural gas pipe- lines, electric power lines and other services. All utilities must re- spond within two business days, starting at 7 a.m. the day after you make the request. Professional loca- tors mark the approximate locations of underground lines at the requested dig- ging site with flags, paint or both. Markings show the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences such as in- jury, service disruptions or costly fines and repair costs. If you suspect utility damage of any kind, leave the area immediately and call 1-800-ENTERGY (1- 800-368-3749) or call 911. A gas leak could be occur- ring if you smell the dis- tinctive natural gas odor, hear a hissing or whistling sound near a gas appli- ance or see dead vegeta- tion or bubbles near a gas: line.
