2---HOGANSVILLE HERALD--THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1999 John M No Fish, But Canadian Honkers My cousin's cousin, who I claim as a cousin, (all us Southerners are probably related to each other some way anyhow) recently moved from my version of paradise to his. In short, he retired from a job and life in West Palm Beach to restful Lavonia. Where's Lavonia? Well, for starters it's in Georgia, so that isn't so bad; and it's located on Lake Hartwell where Mike's retirement house hap- pens to be. Instead of the canal in his former backyard and huge bass begging to be caught, Mike now has to board his pontoon boat to go after whatever he can find in Gumlog Creek, which happens to feed into the lake, near his house. Since he has more time avail- Able for ftshing now than in Florida, he makes little forays into Gumlog Creek frequently. It also helps if his wife accompanies him on these expe- ditions, which she refers to as sight- seeing tours. You see, Mike hasn't had much luck in Georgia waters. Being a native Georgian hasn't ap- peased the fishing gods enough yet to permit.him a good catch since he pulled a record bass out of Gumlog too many years ago now to Contem- plate. That's the same one mounted on his office wall, and it is beginning I to look like it's his limit Now Lavonia is a beautiful little town, but you have to remember Mike hasn't lived in Georgia since he left college. So, it is taking some getting-used-to all over again for him. When he and Freddy, our mu- tual cousin, used to fish they found that those critters tended to get very cooperative if explosives were used as a means to get their attention. The boys used "cherry bombs". Now that Mike has grown up, he doesn't use this method to fish anymore, besides the neighbors in West Palm would never understand and it probably would bring out the Coast Guard anyway. Mellowing out over the years, Mike simply casts his line one more time. He gives his wife a pleas- ant smile and after a few more casts begins to quote Melville's "Moby Dick" I won't do that here, but this is intended to show his stern will to persevere in spite of overwhelming odds against getting that fish. At this point he would settle for anything, large or not, and preferably some- thing at least that he could throw back if he didn't want to keep it. As late evening draws near, Mike prob- ably loses his mellowness to thoughts of using his old tried and true child- hood methods, wishing he had a "cherry bomb". Fortunately, remembering Geor- gia law, he decided spending retire- ment in the Lavonia city slammer isn't a good plan. Besides, he has his mother-in-law's reputation to think about; she's a long standing citizen of Lavonia. The evening is fading at this point, so Mike and his wife forget about fishing and just watch a truly spectacular sun set, and a "V" of geese flying right over their boat. A pic- ture-perfect end to a day on the lake, I mean the creek. So what if Mike doesn't catch any fish, he is already catching some- thing few of us have the time to catch these days: a sunset on the water and sights of nature that developers deny us inhabitants of Atlanta. If that's what retirement is all about, then my fly rod and its owner, neither of which have ever caught anything, just can't wait. I won't need a boat in the moun- tains, I can just stand on my deck and toss a line a few hundred feet down the side to the lake below. Like Mike, I can get to be an expert sunset watcher, that is if developers don't build a shopping center on my moun- tain and drain Mike:s lake for a park. ing lot.

Seed for Thought: A wise knows his ignorance, a fool thinks COUNTY EXTENSION NEws By Susan Wetherington Cut Back On Fat Intake To Lose Weight Many people make a New Year's resolution to lose weight. Cutting back on the amount of fat you eat can help you do that. Fat may be hiding in unexpected places in family meals. Check out the vegetables in your meals, especially those southern-style vegetables, sea- soned the way Grandma used to make them. In a recent study, seasoning vegetables using alternatives to fat and fatty meats, had a greater impact on fat content of the meal than any of the other commonly recommended techniques for reducing fat content. Another way to reduce fat in meals is to choose low-fat versions of tradi- tional products. Take a close look at your food preparation methods. Grill, broil or bake rather than fry, for ex- ample. Here are some ways to cut the fat in vegetables while maintaining the flavor. Mix butter substitutes and pow- ders with chicken or vegetable stock before incorporating into a sauce or dish; the butter flavor will be more evenly distributed and the stock will S enhance the flavor. Commercially canned stocks are available - choose the low-fat version. Top dark leafy green vegetables with chutneys, relishes or salsas; or try the new flavored vinegars. Capi- talize on these old soulhern favorites, available today with a new twist. Add extra-virgin olive oil at the end of cooking; less is needed be- cause the strong flavor is not lost during cooking., Other strong-fla- vored oils, like sesame and walnut, may be substituted for the olive oil for a different taste. Try replacing the ham hocks with liquid smoke and herbs. Thyme works particularly well in dried bean dishes and squash dishes. When topping with cheese, try using a strong or sharp-flavored cheese rather than a mild or medium- flavored cheese; these cheeses often heat (and mel0 better than their no- fat counterparts, and less sharp cheese Nil is needed than the mild cheeses for the same flavor" Need more cheese to maintain texture of the dish? Try the sharp-flavored cheese with fat mozzarella. Finally, as cold weather a preaches, thicken creamy soups withk_ aP tm.dce gwehitbl:r:oCre2uthx .st th all;t oD  Last but not least, remember thal healthy vegetables still have to appeal to the senses -- think about how they look and taste, but don't forget howI.Jr they smell! And be adventuresome. KIJ II I CLARK-HOL DER CLINIC announcds that Andy Wilkerson, MD will be relocating to Gainesville, GA effective January 14, 1999. Leroy K. Hubbert, MD Tanios J.
