This trend has been emerg- ing in our societ); and has been noticed in the past sev- eral years in the natural health field. "I'm excited to introduce it to my clientele," Martha commented. Jensen traveled to Montana for a one-on-one training and certification testing with Carolyn Nimmo-Webber, founder and teacher of the Geo Thermo Therapy. To pre- pare, she spent several months completing a home study and internship pro- gram to obtain the certifica- tion. She received valuable skills and was able to fine tune techniques from work- ing privately with the instructor. I cannot compare my experience with the stone therapy to other types of massage, because I had only dreamed of having a certi- fied massage therapist work out trouble spots in my mus- cles. As I lay on the table with my eyes closed and lis- tened to the relaxing music, I tried to focus on how my body responded to the treat- ment. My summary of the session is simple. Try it, you'll like it. Each experience is dif- ferent because each individ- ual has specific needs. "I tai- lor the massage to each per- son's individual needs," said Jensen. The length of a ses- sion depends on how many areas of the body she works on.

Diane Dick CLASSIFIED ADS SMALL PRICE BIG RESULTS Corvette license plates reveal owners feelings By Carolyn Van Loh Sentinel Tribune Finally, WERCRZN with NOWOROYS. LETRRIP because we're FLYNL02. I DESERVD IT. Why don't you DEW IT 2? CULA8R. BYE BYE. No, my computer didn't rebel and create its own language. Those strange words are personalized license plates on Corvettes seen in the area last weekend. Five of the dream cars cruised into the parking lot at the Rolling Hills Golf Course shortly after noon on Saturday. The owners were all members of the Sioux Falls Corvette Club. While the club boasts 100 members, about 15 of the cars and their owners were at Lake Shetek for the weekend. A few of the men took a side trip to golf nine holes at the Westbrook course before cruising Lake Shetek on the Why Knot. Their trip to Lake Shetek is an annual event begun several years ago by a couple Corvette owners from Sioux Falls. Participation con- tinues to grow each year. It was evident that the men enjoy talk- ing about their cars, but they were on a tight schedule Saturday afternoon. Consequently, there was no time for an in-depth interview. I did learn a couple of interesting facts about vettes, though. The first vette made its appearance in 1953. Unlike other cars that frequently come out with new designs, the Corvette has experienced just five changes in its 51-year history. A sixth change will be revealed on Corvettes scheduled to hit the market in August. The license plate FINALLY told me an interesting fact about Corvette owners. The majority of them are gray-headed and retired, or close to retirement age. I asked a couple men about that observation, and they agreed with me. They then went on to say they had a 25- and 35-year-old member in their club. The youngest of the men I met Saturday was a mere 44 years old. Corvette owners wait a long time before they pur- chase their dream car. As the saying goes, '"the difference between men and boys is the price of their toys." The license plate says It all. Saturday afternoon when five shiny corvettes drove Into the parklng lot of the local golf course, they created quite a stir among people at the course for a routine afternoon of golf.
