McConnelt introduces Tobacco Buyout Bill U.S. Senator Mitch McCon- nell last week introduced a buy- out proposal for tobacco quota owners and growers. Mc- Connell led the effort to craft "The Tobacco Market Tran- sition Act of 2003," which is supported by every senator from the six leading tobacco- producing states. "This legislation represents months of hard work and nego- tiation," said McConnell. "It has been a long and difficult process, but one that was vital to the future livelihoods of our tobacco farmers and their fami- lies." Sen. McConnell"s bill pro- vides payments of $8 per pound to quota holders and $4 per pound to growers. The pay- ments, based on the 2002 quota level, would be distributed over a six-year period. The funds required will be obtained from manufacturers and importers of all tobacco products sold in the United States and will total $13 billion. "In Kentucky, tobacco has helped small communities con- struct schools and convention centers, it has supported local governments, and most impor- tantly, it has supported the small family farmer," said McConnell. "There is no simple solution to the problems facing tobacco farmers, but there are clear steps that we can and should take to correct the most egregious problems. This bill does just that." McConnell's bill also limits production to traditional tobac- co producing communities. Total acreage for each kind of tobacco will be limited to his- torical levels. Leasing, transfer- ring, or renting production acreage rights are specifically prohibited. The bill also elimi- nates the government backed price guarantees for all tobacco grown. "This legislation will not solve all the problems that face the small tobacco farms, but it does set in motion a system of reform and transition that will allow these individuals and communities a chance to sur- vive." Heart disease in women can be reduced These heart-rendering statis- tics might lead you or a friend to adopt some simple preven- tive measures that could save your lives. Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and strokes) is the number one killer of Kentucky women of all ethnic backgrounds and races. Kentucky's female death rate from cardiovascular disease is higher than the national aver- age. Heart disease claims the lives of nearly two times as many Kentucky women as can- cer, and 13 times as many as breast cancer.

However, heart disease is the number one cause of death, fol- lowed by cancer. Kentucky women, and men, too, have high incidences of cer- tain risk factors for cardiovascu- lar disease. While we can't con- trol some factors, such as age and family, we can change our lifestyles to lower the likelihood  of cardiovascul diseases from such risk factors as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, high choles- terol, excessive alcohol con- sumption and poor eating habits. Quitting smoking is the sin- gle most important lifestyle change you can make to reduce risks of cardiovascular diseases. It's also critical to reduce alco- hol use, because excessive con- sumption contributes to obesity, high triglycerides and high blood pressure--all cardiovas- cular disease risk factors. People with high blood pressure are three times more likely to have a heart attack. High cho- lesterol is another cardiovascu- lar disease risk factor. Thirty percent of Kentucky adults have known high cholesterol. You can often lower high blood pressure and cholesterol level by changing your lifestyle to include more physical activi- ty and healthier eating habits. These changes also may ulti- mately lead to weight loss. While some heart attacks are sudden and intense, many women have those that slowly start with mild pain or discom- fort. To prevent a serious heart attack, women should know the following symptoms: Chest pain (angina) starting as tightness in the chest that sometimes radiates down the left ann or into the jaw. It's often mistaken for indigestion. Chronic breathlessness, or waking at night with difficulty I [ Owingsville /r, " , eZdl?;00 L 10 n s %00ClUbe 1st and 3rd Thursday night of each month.

Chronic fatigue that often is overwhelming and unusual. Having unexplained light- headedness, or even blackouts. Other possible symptoms are a fluttering, or rapid, heart- beat and nausea. If you or someone in your presence, exhibit these symp- toms, immediately seek medical attention. Rapid recognition of a heart attack and immediate access to treatment is critical in reducing heart disease deaths.
