Recreation Park Trails In The News Again!
Using a grant from the Chelsea Wellness Foundation the Grass Lake Community Sports & Trails Recreation Park has taken a major stride forward in the "trails" department. Utilizing this funding has resulted in having stoned and mowed walking trails, which has given our community yet another valuable recreational resource. We appreciate the work of Jim Stormont and the Township of Grass Lake toward directing this vision to its current status. The Citizen Patriot offers a story about the use of the trails at http://bit.ly/1Q9z62R Click here to see a slide show exhibiting the trail.
Kettlebell Exercises - What They Can Do For You
If you've eyed the cast-iron kettlebells at your gym and couldn't imagine a use for them beyond doorstop, keep reading. Researchers found that people who did a 20-minute kettlebell workout torched almost 300 calories—and that's just for starters. When you factor in the muscle-sculpting impact (the calories burned after you exercise as your body repairs its muscle fibers), the total expenditure could increase by up to 50 percent. Kettlebell workouts have become a popular way to tone your body and increase flexibility. Click here for a 10-minute instructional video.
Prescription drug misuse and abuse is cause for great concern.
As of 2008, teens cite prescription drugs as the second most accessible drugs available to them, after marijuana. Teens also view the drugs as 'safe' highs. Prescription drugs are medications that should only be used as prescribed. The addictive potential of prescription drugs is the same as that of illegal drugs -- such as cocaine or heroin -- and the consequences of use can be severe. Opioid (analgesic/narcotic pain relievers) drugs are the most commonly misused of prescription drugs. Click here to see more information about the dangers of misused and abused prescription drugs.
