I may squirm and From page 16 should have gone to cop, sales, gunsmithing classes with this guy! He learned something somewhere that I sure didn't. Actually, I think I'm glad of that. This may sound like sour grapes but ask some of the local loggers what they think of the log- ging shows on TV and how accu- rate they are. Or ask a police officer about TV cop shows. Ask a pawn shop owner about the programs depicting their profession. You'll their are numerous manufacturers or custom gun builders that have enough employees to keep a film crew busy and also put out real guns to real users for real appli- cations - not some dragon gun or three-ring-circus revolving shot- gun contraption. Go to Dillon Aero, Ed Brown, Wayne Novak, Springfield Armory, Bill Wilson, Smith & Wesson etc. etc. etc. There you will see how real craftsman produce custom firearms in significant volume. I always have to remember that roll my eyes a lot, but I'm sitting there in front of the magic box like everyone else. If you want me to come and buy your gun collection I'll be rolling up in a 20-year-old truck and I won't have a half-na- ked female with me. Sorry, reality and reality TV have little in com- mon.

License #1161 1202 Main Street I 541-408-1261 St )p by Our New Store! 2 doors down to the Fallon Building, 1027 Main Street 1027 MA+N ST 541 -367-66 I 4 By Dave Bauer Contest Director Twelve weeks ago, 64 contestants stepped on the scale for the first time with one common goal in mind - to lose unwanted pounds by using the Lose for Life weight loss contest as a motivation tool to make it happen! In the beginning it seemed like such a long time for a contest to go on, but here we are, just one week away from the Finale' and many of the contestants want to keep going. ] YOU may be wondering hy? Why would anyone continue to subject them- selves to plain lettuce salads, tuna outta the can, Iow-carb, fat-free, taste-free everything and flavored Styrofoam (rice) cakes for dessert? Well, the truth is, they're :NOT! They have learned ;that they can eat pretty darn good, eat five to six times a +day AND still lose weight. I know. It sounds like ,an infomercial. But it's true. Just- how successful have they been? To date, the total .contestant weight loss is over 850 pounds. That's about four whole adults and a kid. Hey, anytime you can count .your weight loss in people, that's success. Seriously, though, our .contestants learned that in order to lose for life they need to eatfor life instead of eating for comfort and pleasure. The hardest part is forgetting how good that "bad-for-you" food tastes and learning how good n n Scan to follow the contest! healthy cooking can taste. If you could just do that, the rest is a snap! Each week we draw a random incentive prize worth a minimum of $50 and we give a $20 prize for the best journal entry. Each of those prizes are donated by local businesses. This week our incentive winner is Shelly Ciullo. She wins a free l O-week fitness class donated by Linn-Benton Community College. Our journal of the week goes to Loretta Savri, who wins a $20 gift card donated by Linn Co Federal Credit Union. Just for fun, Lois Maudlin won a $5 gift card from Subway and Gall McCammon and Muffle McQuistion each won a $5 juice bar card from Steelhead Fitness. In the interest of making the final week more, well, interesting, we decided not to post any stats for this week. Instead, we want to remind all the contestants who have missed no more than three weigh-ins, that we are throwing you a bit of a party next week. Not only will we be writing some very large checks to the winners, but we will also provide some good food, give away some great prizes AND give a special announcement! Everyone is required to be there at 9 a,m. before we can start the final weigh in. We would also like to post a call to action. Lose for Life's first year was a good start, but in order for it to touch more lives and influence more people to live and enjoy a healthier lifestyle; we need a bigger team. Next year we plan to reach more young adults, more seniors and even reach our children. We want to see more businesses encourage their employees and we'd love to see more families especially as teams, pulling together and encouraging each other to lose for life. It would also be great to see our schools involved. If you would like to be part of the Lose for Life team either as a committee member or a volunteer, we would love to talk to you.
