The reason for that after-lunch slump at work has more to do with poor nutrition and late-night television than with natural biological rhythms, said Dr. Ray Wunderlich Jr., a preventive nutritionist in St. Petersburg, Fla. "In addition to bad sleeping and eating habits like too much caffeine and sugar," he said, "another cause is simply boredom. If we sleep a good six to eight hours, we shouldn't be tired during the day. "A certain amount of positive tension or what we call 'eustress' is necessary to feel stimulated, and if our jobs don't provide it, we'll be listless during the day and restless at night." There are other reasons why the office couch looks good around 2 p.m. "Our work and social schedules don't follow natural patterns — the sun rising and setting," Wunderlich said. A heavy lunch makes us sleepy in the afternoon because the blood rushes away from our heads to our stomachs. A problem working women must overcome is PMS, or premenstrual syndrone. "There's no doubt in my mind that women work harder, and handle stress and pain better than men do," said Dr. Anthony Labrum, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. "How else could many women deal with the monthly headaches, dizzy spells, cystitis, sudden depression and total physical exhaustion that comes with pre-menstrual syndrome and still get to work on time?" Although some people do not take this syndrome seriously, it can be a physical and emotional nightmare for sufferers. Al Gore — Master Chef He may not be our next president, but he can barbecue The Democrat Al Gore staked his bid for the presidential nomination on how well he did in the Deep South Super Tuesday primaries. But, the skeptics have been asking, is this man really a Southerner? Tennessee is his home, of course, but the facts are he is a Harvard man, he doesn't exactly sound like Corner Pyle when he speaks and there is some doubt as to whether or not he has ever even ridden in a pickup truck, sang "Rocky Top," or had his picture taken at Rock City. Garry Trudeau's Doonesbury has taken to calling him "Prince Albert," and other cartoonists have characterized him as a three-piece-suiter trying to woo the overalls crowd. I consider myself an expert on what is Southern. Here's some examples that are pure: — Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, Mississippi. — George Jones. — Randy Travis. — The Darlington 500 automobile race. Lewis Grizzard — The Luckie Street Grill, Atlanta. — Using the word "tacky," to describe people from the North and their odd ways. — Saying "fixing" as a substitute for "preparing." — Anything that's got to do with the Baptist Church. — Hand-held funeral-home fans. — Gnats. — Run-over possums. — Shooting holes in road signs. — The sixteenth hole on the last day of the Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National. — Pork pig barbecue. I put pork pig barbecue on my list because it is, of course, a Southern thing and it can, in fact, define a Southerner. Somebody who thinks barbecue is beef is not a Southerner. Texans think barbecue is beef. Somebody who thinks that barbecue in terms of ribs only is not a Southerner, either. This person is probably from the Midwest and wears rubbers on his or her shoes. But somebody who knows damn well barbecue is pork and the best way to eat it is sliced or chopped and put inside two pieces of bread is damn well a Southerner. The point here: It was two summers ago in Memphis: I was attending the International Barbecue Cookoff — the second biggest event in town. Elvis's birthday is number 1. There were hundreds of people cooking barbecue on the banks of the Mississippi, and one of those people, believe it or not, was Al Gore. I saw the man cooking his pig. I saw him wearing a stained apron. I saw the sweat dripping from his face. I also met him, chatted with him (about barbecue) and ate some of his pig. Al Gore's barbecue didn't win any prizes that I know of, but it certainly was passable. Al Gore probably isn't going to win the Democratic nomination either, but I would like to come to his defense and say: Yes, he has been Easternized to a degree, but the man does know how to barbecue a pig, and that's proof enough to me, suh, that he's blood. Schools Across The Nation Tackle Alcoholism WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) Teachers and school administrators across America are at last grappling openly with the big problem of teen-age alcohol and drug abuse, according to TARGET, an alcohol and drug education program created by the National Federation of State High School Associations. Nearly 5 milion adolescents, or three in 10, have a drinking problem, says Otis R. Bowen, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services. The National Council on Alcoholism (NCA) reports that nearly a third of all high school seniors say that most or all of their friends get drunk once a week. As the youth crisis continues, more schools are working directly with treatment experts such as The Mediplex Group Inc., one of the first to offer schools an early detection program for substance abusers. "Less than a decade ago, almost every school said this was another school's problem," says Barbara Ball, White Plains-based director of adolescent program development for Mediplex. "Finally, they're openly admitting that chemical dependency is a major problem everywhere." Substance abuse counselors say that trained teachers and Wa Wo Ki Ye Cachet Conclave Set This Sunday The Tribal Trails Girl Scout Council will hold its annual Wa Wo Ki Ye Cachet Conclave Sunday at the Dunbar Service Center, Logansport.

PHAROS-TRIBUNE 722-5000 Warning Signs For Teen Alcoholism These are the warning signs that may indicate a youthful drinking problem, according to treatment professionals: •Uses home like a motel — a place to just eat and sleep. •Neglects hygiene suddenly. •Displays frequent mood swings and personality changes. •Loses interest in grades, which begin to drop. •Skips class or school for days at a time. •Changes to a different crowd of friends. •Withdraws from family, becoming secretive. •Sneaks money or liquor out of the house. other school personnel are in a good position to affect change because of their daily contact with teens. To help their students before it's too late, more and more educators are learning how to recognize the warning signs of teen-age alcohol abuse, they say. The Mediplex early-detection program, offered to schools at no charge, is designed to help build alcohol awareness among staff. The health care company operates residential alcohol and drug treatment centers with teen programs in Shawnee, Kan.; Charlottesville, Va., and Spofford, N.H. It also has adolescent programs in the facilities it manages in Carmel and Scotia, N.Y. Lake of the Ozark, Mo., will have a teen program later this year. "We spend about three hours teaching the entire school staff about alcoholism," Ball says. "We want to take away the stigma of alcoholism and show that kids who get caught up in it aren't 'bad' or from bad homes." After the presentation, from five to seven faculty volunteers form a key team that receives more in-depth alcohol education and training. If a student is behaving in a way that may signal alcohol abuse, the key team distributes confidential "behavior checklists" to all staff members — including the school bus driver — who see the teen daily. "The staff isn't putting a label on the child, but simply identifying specific, troublesome behavior," says Art Sullivan, program director for adolescents at Mountain Wood, the Mediplex facility in Charlot- tesville. "By looking closely at all these checklists, the key team can get a broad picture of what's going on with an individual teen-ager." If alcohol abuse is suspected, administrators contact the student's parents, suggesting where the teen can get a professional evaluation. The goal is to get teens who are problem drinkers — or already alcoholic — into appropriate treatment. "If a teen is having a problem, it's important to find out if alcoholism is behind it," Ball says. "In the past, many kids were labeled emotionally disturbed or learning disabled when their real problem was alcoholism. As schools are becoming more educated, this is happening less." The early detection program is most commonly used in high schools, where alcohol problems tend to be most visible. But middle and junior high schools are also using the program successfully. The NCA reports that most young people today try alcohol at age 12, compared to 13 or 14 years of age just, a few decades ago. Ball notes that it's sometimes difficult to separate the real symptoms of a drinking problem from typical adolescent behavior. -I5T" ItytheG of Diet We Taste soy \s»w ^SfHE SOf^ When you purchase any multipack, 2-llter or 3-llter bottle of Diet Pepsi or Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi. - rt Wit ei SO* The new taste of Diet Pepsi and Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi is unbeatable!
