Karate becomes a family pursuit can focus on my studies in school." Jennifer said karate has given her inner strength. She said she has gained flexibility, both mentally and physically, confidence, work ethics and the ability to achieve goals. In a shy manner, Lindsey indicated she is most impressed with sparring. Charmaine said the karate family may celebrate its 10th anniversary by competing in the Diamond Nationals in Minneapolis in October. "These are the longest active karate students I have ever had," Betlewski said. He noted that in his 19 years of teaching, Charmaine is only one of four students over the age of 40 that has received the black-belt ranking. "I've never seen a more physically fit person than Charmiane in all my years of teaching. Her black belt pre-test in July was one of the best I have ever seen," Betlewski said. "It is great to have such focused individuals and hard workers, because that is what the art is all about," he said. "People who are not focused will fail and drop out. This is a strong direction for the teens. It will lead to positive ' things into the college years."

Lawyers in marathon session to reach implant settlement BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) — Lawyers representing Dow Corning Corp. and women claiming silicone breast implants made them sick met for 21 hours before reaching agreement on a few more details of a $3.2 billion settlement, a company spokesman said today. The proposed settlement is not complete, however, Dow Corning spokesman Michael T. Jackson said shortly after the meeting at U.S. Bankruptcy Court here ended at 7:30 a.m. ^ The two sides began meeting about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to try to hammer out what Jackson called "stumbling blocks" in the tentative deal reached in July between Midland-based Dow Corning and lawyers for the 170,000 women. "It's frustrating when you're talking to so many women who are so sick and we don't seem to be getting anywhere," implant recipient Betty Buikema told the Midland Daily News for a story today. Ms. Buikema was one of three Chicago-area implant recipients who waited in the court lobby for news of progress. All three said they have had neurological problems, muscle aches and lupus- like symptoms. Company chairman and chief executive Richard Hazleton, who was at the federal building for much of the talks, said Dow Corning wants to see the matter resolved just as quickly as the women do. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur •Specter ordered the session, attended by federal mediator Francis McGovern. It resulted in a written agreement that resolved "some of the issues," Jackson said. He declined to discussthose > issues. ' . McGovern said late Wednesday that the two sides were working on four separate documents.

"I could see it was good exercise and I liked the way Dave ran his classes. I also wanted to do something with the kids." Jennifer followed. Charmaine said she broke away from karate for three months, "while I had Lindsey. Lindsey joined the Karate Institute in 1994, at age 3. "Part of the reason we joined as a family is because Dave Betlewski motivates and inspires. He makes you reach for goals and try to be the best that you can be. He teaches you not to give up; to put in that little extra effort." The foursome agrees they have learned a lot through karate. And, it is a lesson that will carry them through the rest of their lives. "The biggest thing I've noticed in the girls is growth. Karate has really increased their self-confidence. They now feel they are capable of taking care of themselves." Charmaine lauded the exercise segment of martial arts. "I know they will keep in shape. They keep working out." Nicole said she has gained self- discipline and the ability to concentrate on one thing. "You've got to be pretty focused on one thing when you're competing." Nicole said her ability to concentrate has carried over into her everyday life. "I can now focus on other things in my life, as I need to.-1 Feet Hurt? Give Foot Pain The Boot...
