LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Speak up for dogs
Animal Friends of Port Aransas would like for supporters of the proposed “dog park” to attend the city council meeting tonight, Thursday, March 15, at 5 p.m.
We would like to have as many supporters as possible.
As an organization, our first priority is the care and well being of our beloved four legged friends. As a growing city, with many pet-owning tourists enjoying our many amenities, this will be one more incentive to come to Port Aransas! We also have many locals with dogs who need a place to exercise their dog(s). Studies show a dog that has been exercised, barks less!
So, let’s join together in making the “dog park” a reality. Happy tails!
I want to acknowledge the volunteer spirit of our community and mention a couple of nice, hardworking guys: Paul Snow and Mike Cobb.
Paul machined the letters on the new Farley Boat Works sign. Mike put in a lot of hours helping make the rosewood presentation box for The Mercer Logs book that was a feature item at the recent Port Aransas Museum fundraiser.
Cure or preventative?
This information is from a recently circulated e-mail originating from Dallas in January, containing information that perhaps we all should take seriously. In short, it states that health professionals are now saying that there is value in trying lemon. Precisely, one tablespoon of real lemon juice in a glass of water each morning. What can it hurt?
As you know, the lemon tree is known for its variety and fresh flavor and is credited with many virtues, the most interesting, the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is said to be a remedy against cancer of all types, containing amazing healing properties as well with its anti-microbial spectrum working against bacterial infections and fungi. It is also effective in regulating high blood pressure, depression, stress and nervous disorders.
Twenty lab tests since 1970 have confi rmed that the extract in lemonoids destroyed militant cells in 12 cancers including colon, breast, prostate, lung and in the pancreas. It showed results that were reported to be better than drugs normally used in chemotherapy, slowing the growth of cancer cells. This type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and does not appear to affect normal healthy cells.

I am making no claim and have no further knowledge.
Sylvia Cortez, Rosa Sanpos and Martha Ugorji (those girls who work for the city) – all we can say is, “Wow!”
This was our first year to be on the decorating committee for the Garden Club’s Style Show, and those ladies went above and beyond to help us out.
They know what to do and they get it done!
They are pleasant, happy and fun to be around.
