SUNDAY, JUNE 25,2006 llfESTYUS THE HAYS DAILY NEWS D3 Conference participants help rebuild Gulf Coast area id library staff attendin ~~ da for members onl — it's ood chance Famil Nutrition rorams sonsor s da in the librar's mair Librarians and library staff attending the American Library Association Annual Conference that is under way in New Orleans are showing how "Libraries Build Communities" through daylong community service efforts to help rebuild New Orleans. Three members of the Hays Public Library staff are attending the conference. As part of ALA's ongoing efforts to help the libraries and communities in the Gulf Coast, many conference attendees will volunteer for a full-day community service project. Some of the attendees participated Friday, and others will have another opportunity again Tuesday. Conference attendees are choosing from activities to help the New Orleans Public Library, Orleans Parish School District or other community rebuilding efforts. There was confusion this week about the Louisiana National Guard's deployment to New Orleans. According to a statement from the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitor's Bureau, "the Guard was brought in to the city to provide assistance to the New Orleans Police Department in desolated areas of the city badly damaged by the hurricane, and where the majority of construction and restoration is now taking place. This will allow more police officers to patrol the tourism and historic core of the city, enhancing the already very good safety record these areas enjoy." Hays Public Library staff said they were happy to have the additional security available while attending this large national convention. Journalist and author Cokie Roberts will be the keynote speaker for Tuesday's closing session of the conference. Roberts currently is the chief con- You HAYS LIBRARY gressional analyst for ABC News and is a news analyst for National Public Radio. Along with her husband, Steven V. Roberts, she writes a weekly syndicated column. Roberts is the author of the national bestseller, "We Are Our Mothers' Daughters," which reveals the often-surprising stories of the women of the American Revolution. Drawing upon personal cor- . respondence, private journals and even favored recipes, Roberts brings to life the everyday trials and extraordinary triumphs of individuals such as Abigail Adams, Eliza Pinckney, Catherine Littlefield Green and Martha Washington, proving that without our exemplary women, the new country might have never survived. Along with her husband, she also is the author of the best-selling "From This Day Forward," an account of their more than 30-year marriage, as well as other marriages in American history. The Hays Public Library has all of Roberts' books available for you. Stop in today and check them out.

Fifty-five percent to 75 percent of the body's weight is water; the brain is 70 percent water; blood is 82 percent water; and the lungs are nearly 90 percent water. The refreshing liquid carries nutrients and oxygen, to cells; cush- 11 Ions organs, tissue, hones, and joints; removes wastes; and also regulates body temperature. Excessive water loss (dehydration) can impair body function and lead to heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke that can be life threatening, she said. Water is lost through perspiration and elimination, In high heat, humidity, or times of high activity (such as working outdoors or participating in athletic activities), perspiration, which cools the boHy through evaporation-of fluids, increases. Exposure to the sun or a sunburn can speed fluid loss; so can beverages with caffeine, which acts as a diuretic. Checking to see if your body is well hydrated is easy — just look at your urine. If urine is pale yellow in color, fluids would appear to be adequate. If urine is dark yellow or appears concentrated, more fluids are needed. Eight to 12 cups of fluid are recommended each day to replenish essential body fluids. Water is recommended as a majority of the fluid replacement because it is readily absorbed. Cool water is preferred because it is absorbed more readily than warm, hot or ice water. Here are some ways to in- Extension Connection crease your water (fluid) consumption: • Drink fluids with meals. • If you drink a lot of coffee or tea throughout the day, try water for every other cup of coffee or tea that you drink. • Carry a bottle of water with y°u. , ,-. • Add slices of lemon,:lime,.,. or orange to your water glass or bottle for a flavor burst. • Make frozen cubes from fruit juice and add one or more of the frozen fruit-juice cubes to your water • You're never too old to enjoy a popsicle! Turn fruit juice into frozen treats. If you don't have popsicle molds, use small paper cups and plastic spoons (as the stick). • Make spritzers. Fill your glass about half full of fruit juice; add seltzer, tonic, club soda, or flavored water. Check nutrition labels for "fizzy" products that have no or few calories and are low in sodium. • Drink 2 glasses of low-fat or non-fat milk. Use milk in soups, on cereals, and in puddings. • Enjoy "watery" fruits and vegetables every day. These include apples, melons, oranges, berries, greens, pears, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, and summer squash. • Add sherbet to fruit juice for a refreshing snack. Try orange sherbet and cranberry juice. Use your imagination for unusual tasty combinations. • Keep a glass or bottle of water next to your favorite chair. When you watch television, take a drink during the commercials. When reading, take a beverage break every few pages. • Mix unsweetened, decaffeinated iced tea with your favorite juice. • Add a dash of cinnamon or vanilla to iced decaf coffee. To keep your iced coffee from getting "watered" down with melting ice, make coffee ice cubes. Making decaf iced coffee and cubes is a good way to use leftover coffee. • Fill a bottle or pitcher that holds 8 cups (2 quarts) with water and put it;in the. refrigerator at night before going to bed. In the morning, you'll have cold water ready to drink. Try to drink all the water by bedtime and you will have achieved your goal of eight glasses of water for the day.
