Look to fresh whole food to fulfill your folate required recommendations. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch

Many of us today are consuming multivitamin supplements in an effort to improve and boost the function of a healthy body or to repair and rebuild the dysfunction of an unhealthy body. Are your vitamin supplements made from whole food or artificial chemicals? You may have never considered this question. Let’s consider it, now. Folic acid — friend or foe?

In 1998, the United States implemented a new practice of enriching (adding) folic acid to cereal grains in an effort to build up the health of pregnant women to decrease the...

Okay, okay, my jokes are better than my tips. So to please all of you here are some more golf jokes. Some new — some old. As any golfer will tell you, it is imperative to keep a sense of humor — especially when it comes to golf and your golf game.

Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.

Golf — You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins, on top of that, the winner buys the drinks.

Golf is...

When you play a new course, always find out what the shoe requirements are. Some allow spikes, while most do not. It could be very expensive to buy new shoes when you get there.

There are basically 4 types of golf course you will play on. Muni – Public – Private and Country Club. Muni and Public courses generally have the same dress code. You can wear a tank top, but you must have a shirt on. Private and Country Clubs have strict dress codes. For men, no tank tops. You must have a golf shirt and pants or shorts. The ladies are a...

Pine Grove 2 wins its final two matches to become ACRA’s 2015 Dodgeball Champions. Amador Ledger Dispatch photo by John Williamson

“If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball.” That is a popular quote from the movie Dodgeball and you will hear it a lot if you spend time around ACRA’s Dodgeball League that just ended last Saturday, December 12.

Each team played everyone one time during the regular season to determine their ranks for the playoffs last Saturday.

The dodgeballs ACRA uses are soft foam dodgeballs that do not hurt even if you get hit in the face. It is a very safe sport that has produced zero injury’s (besides a sore arm) during the four leagues...

A little casual water can make for some interesting play and interesting shot choices on a golf course. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch

Tall grass is another common fairway hazard. It seems to be everywhere your ball lands. When you are in tall grass, pick your club up quickly on the back swing and come down in a chop manner. Hit the ball and the ground about the same time. Again, do not go for distance, just get the darn ball out of there in any direction you can. Most novice golfers do not have the power the pros do and can not get the club head through the grass.

Another hazard is mud either in the fairway or in the rough. With this shot, you always want to hit...

A brisk walk will help you stay fit and emotionally balanced. Photo courtesy to the ALD
The holiday season can be lots of fun with family gatherings, wonderful community events, and lots of love and laughter. It can also be a time of weight gain and stress. It’s easy to overeat at Christmas dinner when you sit next to your father-in-law, and he asks how the job search is going. How can we manage the demands of the “season” in a way that keeps us healthy? Walking just might be the answer. A brisk daily walk will get you out in nature and help you stay fit and emotionally balanced. Here are 10 good reasons to start... [Read more]

Dream Killers win it all and stay undefeated in a quick, but fantastic ACRA volleyball tournament. Amador Ledger Dispatch photo by John Williamson

On Saturday, December 5 the Amador County Recreation Agency (ACRA) hosted its first 5 on 5 Volleyball Tournament. It was double elimination, and with only four teams, it was a quick day, but it consisted of good volleyball.

The first matchups were between the Throwbacks and Last Minute. The Throwbacks won in two games. Next was the Dream Killers versus the Osteoclasts. This was the first battle of the day. It went to three games, but the Dream Killers dominated the third game and won the match.

The next matchups were between the...

Last Sunday was Championship Week for ACRA’s Men’s Basketball League. This League has an A League and a B League with all the teams playing a total of eight regular season games and two playoff games.

The first Championship game of the night was the A League game between the Hammerheads and AmadorCountyRealEstate.com. AmadorCountyRealEstate.com got off to a great start.
