Gooding’s Guide to Fitness - A Water Carol
Dec 09 2010, 11:01 AM
Image-wise, water is the Ebenezer Scrooge of beverages. Without considering its health benefits, many people may view water as miserly,boring, plain, unromantic and bland. Among all the other more colorful, sweet, fruity, chocolatey, bubbly options, water simply is ... simple. However, the health benefits of drinking water (yes—plain, filtered water) are extraordinarily remarkable. Before you say, “Bah Humbug”, consider these facts about water:
• A recent study reported that the odds of developing breast cancer were reduced by 79 percent, on average, among water drinkers. One possible explanation is that maintaining a dilute solution within cells reduces the potency of estrogen and other carcinogens that cause long-term tissue damage.
• Water forms the makeup of synovial fluid (the lubricating fluid between joints) and cerebrospinal fluid (fluid in between vertebrae and around the brain). If your body is even slightly dehydrated, less fluid is available in these areas to protect your joints, spine and brain.

USS Nimitz set to homeport at Naval Station Everett, welcomed by elected officials
Dec 09 2010, 2:39 PM
EVERETT — The U.S. Navy's Dec. 9 announcement that the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Nimitz will be homeported at Naval Station Everett was met with praise from local, state and national-level elected officials.
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus decided to homeport the Nimitz in Everett upon the completion of its maintenance at Bremerton in December of 2011, following the departure of USS Abraham Lincoln for a four-year refueling complex overhaul in Hampton Roads, Va. The Abraham Lincoln is currently deployed and will not return to Everett.
Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon deemed this decision an example of how the Navy recognizes the importance of Naval Station Everett, which he described as "a top-rate facility befitting our national security," as well as its personnel. Reardon praised the Navy for homeporting the Nimitz at Everett while the Abraham Lincoln is away, by asserting that it maintains national security on both coasts on the country while saving millions in federal dollars.
