CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - One by one, Jared Faith picked up the paper cups and took a sip, swishing the liquid around in his mouth as if he were at a wine tasting. "That is 1 percent. ... That is skim," Faith said Monday after tasting the first two milk samples. After he had tasted all four samples of milk, Lola Rigas, a community health nurse with the Franklin County Health Center, gave him the bad news. "I didn't get any of them right," said Faith, a junior on the Chambersburg High School wrestling team.

Consuming milk and milk products provides health benefits. People who have a diet rich in milk and milk products can reduce the risk of low bone mass throughout the life cycle. Foods in the milk group, with the best sources being milk, yogurt and cheese, provide nutrients that are vital for health and maintenance of your body. These nutrients include calcium, potassium, vitamin D and protein. Diets rich in dairy products help build and maintain bone mass. This might reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

"Got milk?" may be a popular advertising slogan, but, unfortunately, for many teenagers it's also a pressing question. Current trends in soft-drink consumption among adolescents suggest that teens are drinking twice as much soda as milk. Twenty years ago, these statistics were just the opposite: teens were drinking two times as much milk as soda. What's worse is that the decline in milk consumption is not being made up by an increase in other calcium-rich dairy products. As a result, today's teens are consuming less calcium than their parents did as teens, which puts them at even higher risk for the bone-crippling disease osteoporosis later in life.

lizb@herald-mail.com After watching a dairy steer get clipped for his upcoming stint in the show ring, a group of about 20 children made it clear they were hungry. The Citicorp Daycare Center took the youngsters to the Ag Expo at around 10:45 a.m. to beat the heat and watch the animals wash off. Many of the youngsters didn't think it was cool enough. "I wouldn't clip here because he'd spit at me and poop," said Ciera Redfer, 7. "It's cool. " Shannon Raffaniello, 9 and Cierra Shaffer, 9, noticed the cow looked a little heavy.

- by Lynn F. Little Milk is a basic food that everyone in the family needs every day. Milk is called nature's perfect food, yet, despite the great taste and the fact that it's a good source of many vitamins and minerals, Americans are drinking less milk. Many believe that milk is high in fat and calories. Skim and 1 percent milk have little or no fat with all the calcium and other nutrients found in whole milk, and fewer calories. Milk is important for people of all ages - not just kids.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A $100 million milk factory is not in the future for the Eastern Panhandle, according to state and local officials. Robert T. Crawford, executive director of the Berkeley County Development Authority, said officials from the HP Hood dairy company had been looking at the Eastern Panhandle as a possible site for a new factory but decided late last month to look elsewhere. "My understanding is they had considered this area but changed their focus to farther west," said Crawford, adding he was not directly involved with the Hood search.

At some point or another, every parent should have the experience of going along on a school field trip. Watching your child interact with friends, seeing teachers in action and participating in the activity can create lasting memories. And so it was with great anticipation that I accompanied my daughter and her friends to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. This was the first field trip we've had together. It was quite an adventure. Through February 2008, Maryland students in preschool through 12th grade are admitted free to the aquarium for field trips scheduled by a school.

It's a lesson many learned early in life: Drink your milk to build strong, healthy bones. Moms and dads recognize the importance of milk, which is rich in calcium and other nutrients, in their growing kids' diet. Unfortunately, that message often is lost later in life.    Milk is one of the best-recognized foods for building strong bones. It is a food that has the greatest number of nutrients, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin D and protein, packaged together to promote bone health.    The U.S. Department of Agriculture publishes a “Healthy Eating Index” to measure the overall quality of Americans' diets.
