BUENA PARK, CA- The American Diabetes Association (ADA) will host its annual ‘Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes’ on Saturday, October 5 at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park. The walk will be 2.5 miles through the scenic grounds of the theme park. Walkers will be able to get a behind the scenes look as they pass through the park grounds and Soak City. There will also be a shorter walk for participants who are not ready for the full walk. Check-in time for the event is at 6:30 a.m. and the walk will begin at 7:45 a.m. at Independence Hall.
Step Out is the signature fundraising walk of the ADA. Each year participants come together to walk and raise funds in order to aid the organization in its mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all those affected by diabetes. There is no cost to participate in this event, but participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of $125 to get the official 2013 Step Out t-shirt on the day of the event. All registered walkers will receive 50 percent off a regularly priced adult admission to Knott’s Berry Farm and free parking the day of the event. This event would not be possible without the generous support from sponsors, which include United Health Care, Knott’s Berry Farm, Hoag Mary & Dick Diabetes Center, Sweet Leaf, Walgreens, Sela, Stock Cross, Fountain Valley Regional Hospital & Medical Center, Jackson Hewitt, Orange County Breeze, and Corner Bakery.

Letter to the Editor

A friend of mine thought you’d be interested in my letter to the Editor. I’ve become aware of a book on the history of World War II written by Robert Welch who founded the John Birch Society in 1958. This book is based largely on the explosive allegations; it contains the alleged crimes of General Dwight Eisenhower in the war in Europe, which have never been properly investigated.
To stop the treason of today, which will continue unless we stop the modern-day traitors destroying our country now by economic and political means, we should read the book, “The Politician,” (see the Internet and JBS.org). We need to understand such critical history exposing the treason against the U.S., including the thousands of our prisoners of war that Eisenhower allowed Joseph Stalin to kidnap to the Soviet Union for forced labor.
Eisenhower stood on Lenin’s tomb and was given the highest honor of the Soviet Union, that reportedly came with an annual monetary payment. We must use historical understanding to stop the current treason now upon us, wake up people! Sincerely, Ed Nemecheck, Landers, CA
