HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY r OCTOBER 22 2010 5 Here's to Health/// This article is Contributed by HIDALGO COUNTY HEALTH CONSOR- TIUM By MELVYN GELB RN, MPH, CDE Ever get confused in the su- permarket aisles? Staring at la- bels: wondering if they were tell- ing you the truth, wondering if this food or that food had some nutritional value, if it really did contain fiber or bad fats? Now I know that you don't always buy food based on good or bad nutrition: taste does mat- ter, as does price. Yet. even among tess nutritious food's there are choices to be made. Some choco- lates and cookies are better than others. The same is true of peanut butter and margarine. And. if the price of two types of chips or canned vegetables were the same, but one was better for your health End of the Rainbow Run Saturday The End of the Rainbow 5K Run/2-Mile Walk will take place this Saturday, October 23. 2010 at Maverick Stadium in Lordsburg. The Entry Fee is $12 and you will receive the official run t-shirt. The event will also include a 1-Mile Fun Run. Reg- istration begins at 9:00 a.m. For more information call Nick Ruiz at 575-313-3247. Proceed go to the Lordsburg Runners Scholar- ship Fund. 90% - then which do you choose? There are four basic things to look for on the nutrition label: l) The ingredient list: In- gredients are usually listed in or- der of amount used. Thus. if sugar is the first ingredient listed, then a lot of it was usedl On the other hand, if sugar is way down the ingredient list. then a lot less of it was used. Also consider other words for sugar or sugar type in- gredients. Some end in OSE. like sucrose or dextrose. Others end in OL. like mannitol or sorbital. Then there are; cam syrups, high fructose corn syrups, malt syrups, honey, etc. All of these sugar type ingredients cause a rapid increase in blood sugar and have little nutritious value, so you might want to consider choosing an- other product. Another ingredient to look for is hydrogenated oil or transfat. This s a man-made fat that can clog your arteries. While several foods, like peanut butter. may contain it: not all peanut butters do. Look for those foods that don't contain hydrogenated oil. 2) The serving size: The serving size is decided upon by the manufacturer. Whether you agree with the serving size or not. the rest of the label is based on this serving size. So, if you eat twice the serving size, everything in the nutrition facts is doubled, if you eat half the serving size, everything is halved. 3) For people with diabe- tes: Look for TOTAL CARBOHY- DRATE. and always read in grams. TOTAL CARBOHYDRATE in- cludes all the carbohydrates for Michael Smith and Michael Evans team up to take down a Mountainair Mustang. Panthers have tough game against Mountainair By ELIZABETH RICHINSlHidal9o County Herald The Panthers traveled to T or C on Monday, October 18, to finish the 2 "d half of their game against Mountainair. which was previously rained out at half time on Friday, October 15, Mountainair started the 3  quarter with the kickoff, and the Panthers scored on a 35 yard carry. Brennik Payne made the TD. but the Panthers' 2 point conversion was no good. The Mustangs answered right back. though, despite the Panthers tough defense. Mountainair scored the TD, but no conver- sion. The score was 6-6 at the end of the 3 rd quarter. In the beginning of the 4 th quarter. Mountainair scored a touch- down. and the 2 point conversion was good, making the score 6-14 in favor of the, Mustangs. Then. Gabriel Hernandez scored for the Pan- thers, and Erik Rome put in the 2 point conversion, once again tying up the.score. Mountainair scored another touchdown on a 20 yard run, and their conversion was good. The Panthers received the kickoff with 4 minutes left in the game. Animas drove the ball to the 30 yard line, but the Mustangs caught an interception to end the game. The final score was 14-22. The Panthers will travel to Reserve on Friday, October 22. Game time is at 3 PM. Good luck boys!

Sugar is included. Read TOTAL CARBOHYDRATE rather than reading just "sugars" since all carbohydrates can effect your blood sugar, though some faster than others. Fifteen grams of carbohydrate is considered one portion. 4) For all the other parts of the nutrition food label we use what is called the 10% rule. Use the "% Daily Value" column of the nutrition label. If there is something you want in a prod- uct. like vitamin A or fiber, then. the product should contain 10% or more of that nutrient per serv- ing to be considered a good source of that nutrient. If you want a whole wheat bread that contains sufficient fiber; each servmg of that bread should con- tain 10% or more of fiber. a. The 10% rule is also used in reverse. For nutrients that you don't want, like sodium, saturated fat, or cholesterol, then 1 serving of the product you are choosing should contain less than 10% per serving Thus if one serving of your product contains only 5% of saturated fat, it is low in saturated fat. On the other hand if one serving contained 35% saturated fat, it is very high. Sometimes when you have to make a choice between two prod- ucts this 10% rule can be very useful. If, for example, you were choosing between two food prod- ucts and one contained 15% so- dium per serving, while the other one contained 25% sodium per serving; you can see that the 15% would be lower and better for you. This isn't everything you can learn from labels, but it is fast and easy. Give it a try the next time you go shopping Animas, Mountainair game called due to rain By ELIZABETH RICHINS/ Hidalgo County Herald The biggest game yet for the Animas football team got rained out on Friday night, October 15 . The Panthers took on Mountainair, the #1 ranked team in the state. The game started at 7 PM, but was canceled officially at 10 PM because of lightning. Things started out fine. with both teams battling back and forth for a touchdown. The teams were very evenly matched as the score was still 0-0 at the half. It started pouring right before the half, so, they finished the 2 " quarter and delayed the game. The lightning never quit, so they ended up hav- ing to cancel the game. The game will go on, though, and the Pan- thers are scheduled to finish the game on Monday, October 18. in TorC. However, the game wasn't a complete downer. It was full of Panther spirit as they Panthers had cheerleaders for the first time in years. A few of the Panthers' vol- leyball players dressed up in the old uniforms for good time sake, and cheered their hearts out for their boys. Even when the rain started pouring down, the cheer- leaders stood strong-cheering as loud as they possibly could. Ev- eryone in the bleachers and on the field was soaked, but the game turned out to be a very memorable one. Kenny Evans carrMs the ball towards the endzone with quality blocking. Lordsburg Mavericks kick of District with 45-6 win over Laguna Acoma By ALAN LANDEROSILHS If you're walking outside and you catch a whiff eta certain smell, it's District Football in the air. Last Friday, the Mavericks started it off with a bang, beating the Laguna Acoma Hawks 45-6. Right from the kickoff, the Mavericks had a mindset of win- ning and it showed. In the very first series the Black Magic De- fense didn't allow a single yard. forcing the Hawks to punt to the Mavericks offense. Lordsburg's offense easily handled the Hawks. pushing them around like a bully in a schoolyard scoring on their first drive on a 13-yard ground and pound run by senior fullback Ceaser Alvarez. The kick tailed making the score 6-0. Next. the Mavericks defense held. and again made the Hawks punt, re- sulting in the Maverick offense taking advantage and scoring on an 8-yard scamper by junior half- back Kenny Evans. The kick failed again, bringing the score to 12-0. The Maverick Defense fixed some things from the Ruidoso game and it showed, as Lordsburg forced a fumble and didn't stop there. Senior linebacker Be Martinez picked up the ball and ran 33 yards for another touch- down: The kick was good this time, making the score 19-0 at the end of the 1 st quarter. The 2 "a quar- ter was a lot of the same for the Mavericks as junior halfback Danie'fTalavea scored on a run. as did ePibr fialtbck Dominick Rodriguez. adding to the score taking it to 32-0. Coming out of halftime, the Mavericks wanted to keep the intensity up and keep pounding the nail into the ground. On the very first drive, the Mavericks had some backups playing, giving them a chance to get experience It seemed like the starters had never left, as junior halfback. Jo- seph Jackson. picked up a loose ball on a fumble by the Maver- icks and sprinted 74 yards into the end zone for six more points, bringing the score 39-0 at the end of the 3st. The @ quarter the Maver- icks put the nail in the Hawks' coffin with yet another score, this time by junior quarterback Tho- mas Chavez on a 60 yard keeper. The kick failed, making the score 45-0. As the game wound down. the J.V had their chance to shine, when they got some playing time, and the Hawks took advantage and scored on pass play. The De- fense stopped the 2-point conver- sion ending the game with the fi- nal score being Mhvericks 45 Hawks 6. Leading the high rolling Maverick offense in rushing was halfback Kenny Evans with nine carries for 77 yards followed by Joseph Jackson with three carries for 70 yards. Adding to the of- fense in receiving was tight end Alan Landeros with one catch for 42 Yards. The Maverick defense put on a show, not so much indi- vidually, but as a team. Leading in tackles was Cornerback Michael Delagarza with six tack- les followed by many more Mav- ericks with 4 each. It was truly a team effort. The Mavericks will continue district play as they travel to Estancia to face the Bears.
