Ebola Timeline 2014 Outbreak:
A break down of times and locations.Page 10


See what Rian wrote this week. Page 11
And the bridge building continues on into the night. It is impressive to see its structuring and how it will
be able to handle the amount of traffic on the Hwy.331 bridge. It is projected to take a couple years to
complete. But a vote No to a toll bridge has already been passed.


Well, Hello there. From the looks from all the E-mails and
letters I got recently, youd think I was running for office or
something. I was told by a few that I should. As if.
Im going to post a story news this week instead of my opinion so that
you can write in and tell me your thoughts on what was written. Deal? Good.
As the world continues to grapple with the Ebola epidemic raging in West Africa,
there's growing concern about another invasive disease whose origin is much closer to
home. Chagas along with its cousins Dengue Fever and the Chikungunya virus is a
disease found mainly in Latin America, but is starting to gain a foothold in the U.S.
Caused by a parasite inside triatomines, or "kissing bugs," Chagas causes fever, fatigue,
body aches, headache and other symptoms in its early stages, while more severe symp-
toms such as cardiac arrest and megacolon emerge in its chronic phase.
While the disease is found mainly in poor, rural parts of Latin America the U.S.s Center
for Disease Control estimates that 8 million people in the region live with the disease
isolated cases of Chagas have begun to crop up throughout the U.S. in places like Louisi-
ana, Texas and Virginia. The CDC believes that there are currently 300,000 people in-
fected with Chagas in the U.S., enough for a clinic devoted to diagnosing and treating the
disease to open at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles and doctors in New
York City and Georgia to start screening patients who have travelled to Latin America.
The disease is not classified by health officials as endemic, leaving many doctors to fail to
diagnose Chagas or not think that people could contract the disease in the U.S. Medical
research, however, suggests that 40,000 pregnant North American women may be infected
with the disease at any given time, resulting in 2,000 congenital cases through mother-to-
child transmission.
Its not something that we think of asking right away, Julie-Ann Crewalk, a pediatrician
who has handled Chagas cases, told The Atlantic. I wouldnt be surprised if the numbers
were higher and were just not seeing it.
The U.S. is not the only country seeing new cases. Spain is now grappling with a rise in
Changa cases because 80,000 migrants from Latin America are living with the illness,
according to the BBC.
Chagas was named after Brazilian doctor Carlos Chagas who first described the disease
also known as as American trypanosomiasis - in 1909, while combating a malaria out-
break in a small town called Lassance. The disease is spread by bites or fecal matter de-
posited on the skin of a human by the triatomines, or "kissing bugs," called so because
they tend to leave bites around the mouth.
The disease can also spread from congenital transmission - from a pregnant woman to her
baby - by blood transfusion, organ transplantation, consumption of uncooked food con-
taminated with feces from infected bugs or accidental laboratory exposure.
Treatment of the disease is done through antiparasitic drugs to kill the parasite, but that
can only be done if the Chagas is caught in its early stages. If it goes untreated past its
acute stage, the Chagas can only be managed by patients with chronic cardiac or intestinal
problems by devices like pacemakers and medications for irregular heartbeats.
Despite the 300,000 or so people living in the U.S. that have Chagas disease, the CDC and
health experts in the U.S. say that most of these people suffering from the disease have
immigrated to the country and the biggest risk of contracting this disease is traveling to
areas where Chagas is endemic.
So, on the store front the media tries to help downplay the Ebola crisis. All for votes?
Come on people, you must get out and vote. After I see all of the witnesses to fraud for
Obamas last election. People voting 10x or more? Sounds also like a 3rd world conspir-
acy for elections. Obama took that to us as an all-time low.
Our credibility is gone with amongst other countries. We are in debt to whom? By how
much? To think that the war on ISIS will be costly is an understatement. Do you think the
Saudis will run out of money? Ever? Who do you think is backing the terrorist?
Now Iran wants to have nuclear warhead bomb, didnt we try to keep them from having
access to such? Oh yes, like Obama once said, Ebola will not reach our lands and then it
did. He said it wont spread, it did and cases throughout the US have surfaced.
What will they do to stop the rioting in Ferguson? I dont see that going as they hope it
will, so more damage to the city. As if that makes any sense.
I do want to say one last thing. I am proud to have served this city in a way I never
dreamt of. I hope to enstill this newspaper into the archives of Freeport and its history.
Yea, me, the guy not from here who wants to lend a helping hand to those in need. If you
have a business, you will always have a need to advertise to some degree. Just give me a
call and I can fit you right in a spot comfortable to us both.
I cater to your advertising needs like no one else will. You can add or make changes
each edition with us..more work for us? We appreciate your business we will go that
extra mile that no other newspaper around will do for you. Come, let us help you too!

Thanksgiving Banquet
November 22, 2014

We are very close to putting the final
touches on the program. We are still very
much in need of additional help from
any and all who want to participate. Right now we
have six Churchs that have been part of the plan-
ning process and it has been wonderful.
The goal is to reach out to the community to
help families and individuals that are hurting. We
want to do the best job that we can as a community
of believers working together.
I believe in miracles; first because I read
about them in The Bible, second because I have per-
sonally seen miracles, and third because others
have told me about miracles. I think you believe as
well.
Plan on joining us on November 6, 2014 at 5pm
at the Community Center for another
meeting. Youre Pastor or any per-
sons designated to represent the
Church, please come on Thursday.

Think about this:
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments
COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing
that during the mad cow epidemic our government
could track a single cow, born in Canada almost
three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in
the state of Washington? And, they tracked her
calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate
11 million illegal aliens wandering around our
country. Maybe we should give each of them a
cow.
THE CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for
Iraq ....why don't we just give them ours?
It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has
worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it
anymore.
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Com-
mandments posted in a courthouse is this -- you
cannot post:
'Thou Shalt Not Steal'
'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and
'Thou Shall Not Lie'
in a building full of lawyers, judges and politi-
cians. It creates a hostile work environment.

Also, think about this ..... If you don't
want to share this for fear of offending
someone -- YOU ARE PART OF THE
PROBLEM!

The Walton County Board of County Commissioners
proposes to adopt the following by ordinance:
AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF
WALTON COUNTY, FLORIDA, GRANTING AN ECONOMIC DEVELOP-
MENT AD VALOREM TAX EXEMPTION TO EMPIRE TRUCK SALES, LLC,
PURSUANT TO SECTION 196.1995 OF THE FLORIDA STATUTES (2014);
PROVIDING A TERM FOR THE EXEMPTION AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE.
You are hereby notified that a Public Hearing on the ordi-
nance will be held on October 28, 2014, beginning at 4:00
p.m., or as soon as possible to that time, at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex located at 31 Coastal Centre Blvd., Santa
Rosa Beach, Florida.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
~Remember, Early Detection Saves Lives ~
WALTON COUNTY The Florida Department of Health in Walton County
(DOH-Walton) recognizes October as Breast Cancer Awareness month and
reminds women to take charge of their health by getting regular mammo-
grams. The best way to find breast cancer is with a mammogram. Getting
mammograms regularly can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading
cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that
breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about
3%). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with
larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be
the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well
as improved treatment.
Breast Cancer Prevention and Early Detection - Staying at a healthy weight,
being physically active, and limiting how much alcohol you drink can help re-
duce your risk of breast cancer. Regular screening can often find breast cancer
early when treatments are more likely to be successful. Early detection is the
key to successful diagnosis and treatment. Contact your health care provider
today.
There is a special program called the Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early
Detection Program (FBCCEDP) that provides a free breast exam by a health
care professional, a free pap test (which is a screening test for cervical cancer),
if needed, and a free mammogram to women who qualify. If you are aged 50-64
and have no health insurance, you can apply to participate in the FBCCEDP. To
see if you qualify, call the Florida Department of Health in Walton County at
(850) 892-8015, Ext. 1175. Remember, early detection saves lives!


You are hereby notified that a
Public Hearing on the ordinance
will be held on October 28, 2014,
beginning at 4:00 p.m., or as
soon as possible to that time, at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex located at 31
Coastal Centre Blvd.,
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.

STOP IN AT THE PRISSY HEN AND SEE WHATS NEW
Preparing for the unthinkable
By Ron Kelley
Ebola, the deadly virus that originated in West Africa, has found
its way to America. One person has died and two nurses have been
diagnosed with the virus.
The death toll for Ebola virus disease in West Africa since April
has now passed 4,000. The total number of cases exceeds 8,000.
Estimates for the current Ebola epidemic gave it a fatality rate of 55
70 percent.
Still, for most Americans, the odds of contracting Ebola are sig-
nificantly lower than the odds of having heart disease, cancer,
stroke, a motor vehicle accident, assault by firearm, or an air travel
accident to name a few. There has been only one Ebola-related
death in the United States and two nurses contracted the disease in
Texas. There have been no reported cases in Florida, so far.
However, while there is no cause for immediate alarm, in a state
whose economy relies on attracting huge numbers of visitors and
tourists from across the nation and around the world, many Florida
hospitals are taking steps to prepare for the unthinkable. Among
those is Healthmark Regional Medical Center in DeFuniak Springs.
Quality Assurance Director Violet Kennison, R.N., said Health-
mark is working with the Walton County Health Department, the
Florida Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control
(CDC) regarding protocols for the physicians and nursing staff.
We are already trained in basic patient isolation procedures. Given
the seriousness of the Ebola virus, we are re-familiarizing ourselves
with those procedures and precautions, she said. We have the
special clothing, gloves and masks needed to protect ourselves and
we have a portable haz-mat unit tent and trailer that could be util-
ized should there be a case here.
Generally, the highest risk of infection are for those people who
have recently traveled to West Africa, including Guinea, Liberia,
Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone or the Democratic Republic of the
Congo. The CDC is reporting that people cannot contract Ebola
through air, food or water. It can only be contracted through direct
contact with body fluids from an infected person or from exposure
to contaminated objects, such as needles.
Kennison noted that since there have been no cases reported in
Florida, the chances of having an incident in Walton County are
very low. However, we have to take it seriously and we have to be
prepared. We are reviewing isolation procedures and will be doing
some training and drills just to be sure that we are ready, no matter
what, she said.
Greetings from the Mayors Office, hope this finds you all doing well
in the Fall Season of the year.
Applications are now in for the new city clerk and the council is in the
process of reviewing and narrowing down the 23 applications to the top
4 for interview, this should take place at our meeting on October 23
rd
,

and the interviews to take place on November 6, 2014. The City Engi-
neering Department has been at work on a Water & Sewer Model to
present to the council and will also do this at a special workshop also
slated for October 23
rd
. We received notice that effective immediately
city employees are now eligible to receive their medical insurance after
60 days of employment instead the 90 days that was required and
The city engineers have applied for the Water Supply Community As-
sistance Initiative, requesting $331,238, for City of Freeport Business
331 and Hwy 20 Water Upgrades and $375,879 for City of Freeport
Water System Upgrades and Expansions, hopefully, we will be hearing
on these grants in the near future to be able to proceed with these pro-
jects. Discussing for changing the charter for the city from a voting to
non-voting mayor has been brought up, which would mean that if ap-
proved by the citizens of Freeport that the mayor would be able to have
discussions with the city council members and sit in on other discus-
sions related to city business with a council member, as it is now with
the Sunshine Law ,the city council and mayor cannot discuss anything
related to the city business that may in time become a matter that would
require a vote, currently the mayor only votes in case of a tie anyway,
further discussion and information will become available at future
meetings. We received two applications for an IT person and the coun-
cil is in the process of reviewing for a selection and this too should be
decided at the next regular meeting. A couple of reminders for the up-
coming month of November, the annual Veterans Day Ceremony is
scheduled for November 11,2014 , beginning at 2:00 PM ,at the Veter-
ans Memorial in front of city hall and the 2
nd
annual Mayors Charity
Ball will be held on November 15,2014, at The Lake Place at Ham-
mock Bay, tickets are available at City Hall, TJs Table, The Prissy Hen
and Emerald Coast Flowers, tickets are $30 per person or $50.00 per
couple, the proceeds help with the Freeport Christmas Fund for those
less fortunate in our area, it provides Thanksgiving Dinner and Christ-
mas Dinner along with gifts for the children of those families. Please
join us for a worthy cause. Further information on both of these events
can be obtained by calling Tim Ard at 585-3304. Looking forward to
the upcoming holiday season the plans are in the making for the annual
Christmas Parade and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting on December
5
th
. Please make plans to attend both as we begin the holiday season.

Opal -
I have been of this earth for 2 years and I
am still for my looking for my forever
home. Currently I am living in a lovely
foster home and hope to find a forever
home that is just as nice. I am super sweet,
have a great personality, and I interact well
with my pasture mates. My foster humans
tell me I am very smart too.
I have been an Alaqua horse for a year. I
haven't fully grown, so I am almost ready
for my ground work in preparation for rid-
ing. I just know I am going to love learning
to ride because I am such a people pleaser.
I am a quick learner and I stand readily for
the farrier and the vet. I just had my dental
and I am in excellent health. I am not
scared to load in the trailer and I am very
trusting. I am around 14 hands now and
probably won't be over 15 hands when
grown.
When I dream about my forever home, I
feel as though I would be a perfect lap
horse. They tell me that there is no such
thing, but I am pretty sure if there were, I
would be the perfect one! I just love atten-
tion and being close to humans brings me
such pleasure. I will be so
happy to be part of a family.
In the meantime, I will con-
tinue to grow and love and
dream. Please help me find
the perfect home. I am oh so

DISTRICT 1 COMMISSIONER AND CHAIRMAN BILL
CHAPMAN TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING REGARDING
CAMPING IN THE CHOCTAWHATCHEE RIVER
WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA
On Thursday, October 30 at 6:00 p.m., District 1 Commissioner and Chair-
man Bill Chapmans office will be hosting a public meeting at the Red Bay
Community Center. This meeting will be in regard to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) proposed camping rule
changes on the Choctawhatchee River Wildlife Management Area (WMA),
in partnership with the Northwest Florida Water Management District
(District).
In order to provide information to the public, representatives from the
FWC and Northwest Florida Water Management District will be on hand to
discuss a proposed change to camping rules in the WMA.
While there are no changes to the camping rules for most of the WMA,
camping in specially designated campsites will be allowed by District per-
mit only under the proposed rule change. This means that camping on a
first-come, first-served basis will still be allowed throughout the WMA
along the river banks, sandbars, and all other areas that are not within the
designated campsites, unless the area is marked as no camping.
Designated campsites include popular improved recreation sites that can
be easily accessed by vehicles, such as Dead River Landing and Lost Lake
along the Choctawhatchee River WMA.
Campers can easily obtain a free permit to use a designated campsite by
making a reservation with the District. The District recently launched an
online camping reservation system that makes it easier and more conven-
ient for users to find campsites, check availability, view alternative dates
and make reservations to ensure that their desired site will be available
when they arrive. Users can make a reservation online at
www.nwfwater.com or by contacting the District at (850) 539-5999.
If approved by the FWC, the proposed rule change requiring reservations
at the designated campsites would take effect July 1, 2015. The rules for
camping at non-designated sites will remain as currently written, and in-
clude:
In the remainder of the area (meaning non-designated campsites),
camping is limited to 14 consecutive days and prohibited where posted as
no camping.
Camping is limited to tents, trailers, or self-propelled camping vehi-
cles only. Kitchen stoves, refrigerators and freezers are prohibited, unless
contained in mobile campers. Lumber, sheet metal or other building materi-
als are prohibited.
*****If you should have any questions about the meeting, please

October 24
th
is FOOD DAY!
~Healthy, Affordable and Sustainable Food for All ~
WALTON COUNTY The Florida
Department of Health in Walton County
(DOH-Walton) recognizes October 24, as Food Day. Food Day is a nation-
wide celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food that promotes healthier diets and food education. Food
Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. The typical American diet contributes to obesity, diabetes,
heart disease, and other health problems. The costs of care for chronic diseases from obesity alone are expected to be $34
billion over the next 17 years.
Food Day is not just a day-long event, but an opportunity to make a permanent change that supports a more sustainable and
healthy future, stated Holly Holt, DOH-Walton Administrator.
Locally, DOH-Walton has joined with
community partners to promote healthy
eating habits. The Walton County
School District supports school gardens
that help supply students with an interac-
tive learning experience to teach students
the importance of growing, harvesting,
and eating fruits and vegetables.
During the 2013-2014 school year,
Freeport Elementary School fourth grade
students and teachers created five class-
room gardens that contained vegetables
and fruits. The students harvested over
39 laundry baskets of red potatoes. The
students and teachers then prepared and
tasted the fruits and vegetables they
produced. This helped the students
understand the value and importance of
growing fresh produce.

The process most likely began around this time last year but could now accelerate. Though at the start of
what should be a busy week you may be unclear as to what you're doing (or even why?!), in the coming
weeks a fresh way of working might appeal to you greatly. It might not all be smooth sailing: around the
eclipse itself a power struggle of some kind may be apparent. One possibility is that the conclusion of a
relationship or way of working will require you to be ultra-detached as decisions are made.
It wouldn't be so surprising if you rediscovered faith in humanity and even, maybe, the sense that luck is just
around the corner. True, there's a real difference between 'sense' and things actually happening.
The discovery that certain people (whom you feel may have been blocking your path) are finally moving on
should be encouraging. It's possible too that the restructuring of a debt or contract will bring some relief.
Everyone has star quality: but most people need about four others to assist in setting their 'star' to sparkle.
This week one of those people could turn the spotlight on you in a big way. It's likely to be someone you've
worked with and have seen as an equal but who now encourages you to take a step forward. If you have any
untapped ambition, then it's likely to surface soon.
It seems likely that a new partnership will be formed. Of course this could have romantic over-tones: it's as
likely that this will involve someone with whom you share financial aspirations. It may be that this person
recognizes you have unexplored assets that they feel you could explore. True, documentation (contract)
might not be forthcoming until early November.
Is it possible that you have too much going on that could be listed under 'research and development'? Enter-
taining though this may be it's possible that it's having negative effect on your nervous system. It may be
time for a detox - and at many different levels. For a start, the antics and affairs of younger people may have
been draining. It's perhaps time to think about you and an older generation.
Yet you might not be ready to start anew until early next week. It may be that you really need breathing
space just to assess and, maybe, tidy up loose ends. It might also suit you to renew contact with someone
who seems to have mastered a schedule and who, maybe, could now share some tasks with you. Job-sharing
of one kind or another might be much discussed.
If you've been thinking about starting your own business (between now and your birthday next year), the
cosmos could give you a thumbs up signal. News reaching you ahead of the eclipse could bring just the lift
that's needed to get you where you need to be, not just there for others to stare at.
Don't doubt your instincts. You may be right that certain facts have been kept hidden (could be tax or pen-
sion-related). Another possibility is that someone you want to do business with is not in as secure a position
as they've implied: in short, you may be asked to provide more. A shift within a partnership that puts you on
more equal terms is possible.
As of the end of this month it should be clear that you are on a new commercial path. At the very least, the way in
which you operate seems set to change. Of course you may have been planning this for some considerable time. It's
likely too that a substantial investment will soon be required. True, all this could be related to home improvement. Yet
perhaps that can't happen until a flow of funds is assured and yes, you may need to wait.
The very real possibilities presented will surely require you to stop and give pause for thought as to what it is that
would really improve your life journey and yes, you might well to choose to stall on signing a contract or agreeing
final terms until you're clear as to the best way forward. A partnership of some kind may well be involved - but one
where you're required to take more responsibility. Whereas a year or so ago you might have baulked at this, you might
now agree that you really are well placed to accept this role or not.
It might also require you to pay close attention to administrative matters and to sort through paper-work that at
times feels over-whelming and incomprehensible. Yet by midweek there's a strong possibility of you experiencing
a 'light bulb' moment where you know exactly what needs to be done. It might even be that you can then pass on a
muddle to someone whom you feel is better qualified to move things to the next stage.
Eclipses tend to shake things up and it may be that someone decides to move on - leaving an opening that, at first
glance anyway, seems perfect for you. The only difficulty may be extricating yourself from a promise or contract -
or, alternatively, negotiating so that you too can move on when the time is right (probably closer to your birthday).
What's especially interesting in all this is your position within an organization (not necessarily to do with work)
where you're asked to accept a place on a committee.
Dear Editor,
I wanted to take a moment to say Thank you.
You were very helpful to us when we called.
Thanks to your skills of fixing the loose
ends on our home was such a big help to us.
Thanks again.
Carol & Elmer Whitenn

Dear Editor,
I was thrilled to see you show up in such a
short time to install my ceiling fan and replace
those pesky doors I had.
I dont know how you do it but your work at
my house was perfect for what we needed, and
your price was perfect too.
Keep up the good work with your newspa-
per. Many of us who live it here really like it a
lot. God Bless you.
Slyvia Ternham

Dear Editor,
I really enjoyed your past few columns of
the Wolfs Den. You can tell that you are
smart and can attack almost any topic with
precise energy.
That is a skilled talent well known by many.
Id like to see anyone else do what you have
consistently for over 6yrs now. This will be-
come a big part of the growth of Freeport. You
deserve better recognition from your Mayor
too. Your devotion is impeccable.
For this town to be so lucky to even have a
newspaper is one thing but yours has a flair to
it like no other. Maybe more businesses will
read this and realize that we love this newspa-
per and want them to help support this ven-
ture. It is one of a kind!
Tillman Peteres
Thank you for all your kind words, they help
inspire me to continue to grow as we do.

Wear Pink
By Rian Lyday

October is Breast Cancer
Awareness month, a fact I am sure all of you know. You
cant turn on the TV without seeing celebrities, athletes,
and newscasters wearing pink. Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women worldwide and the second-
most common cancer overall. In the United States, an esti-
mated 232,030 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diag-
nosed this year. Women, take advantage of the many op-
portunities available to us and check routine check-ups.
Even without insurance, there are clinics and doctors who offer free breast exams during
October. My family has had its share of cancer over the past two years, enough to make
me realize that I am not invincible.
But where how did the color pink become such a huge symbol for breast cancer? Pink
is the quintessential female color, says Margaret Welch, director of the Color Associa-
tion of the United States. The profile on pink is playful, life-affirming. We have studies
as to its calming effect, its quieting effect, its lessening of stress. [Pastel pink] is a shade
known to be health-giving; thats why we have expressions like in the pink. You cant
say a bad thing about it. Pink is, in other words, everything cancer notably is
not. (http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/?page_id=26) So wear your pink this month and
show your support! I even had my husband add a streak of pink to my hair so that each
day I am reminded of the people we have lost and those still fighting so hard.
Here are some risk factors that contribute to breast cancer beyond your genetic makeup
and family history:
Having children
Women who have had no children or who had their first child after age 30 have a
slightly higher breast cancer risk overall.
Birth control
Oral contraceptives: Studies have found that women using oral contraceptives (birth
control pills) have a slightly greater risk of breast cancer than women who have never
used them.
Depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA; Depo-Provera

) is an injectable form of
progesterone that is given once every 3 months as birth control. A few studies have
looked at the effect of DMPA on breast cancer risk. Women currently using DMPA
seem to have an increase in risk, but the risk doesnt seem to be increased if this drug
was used more than 5 years ago.
Hormone therapy after menopause
Hormone therapy with estrogen (often combined with progesterone) has been used for
many years to help relieve symptoms of menopause and to help prevent osteoporosis
(thinning of the bones). Earlier studies suggested it might have other health benefits as
well, but these benefits have not been found in more recent, better designed studies. This
treatment goes by many names, such as post-menopausal hormone ther-
apy (PHT), hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and menopausal hormone
therapy (MHT).
