How's your health, your wealth, your itinerary?

Special to mattmediafla.com

Nov. 6, 2009

For many of us, these are challenging times — physically, financially, emotionally, spiritually. Yet the challenges make us appreciate good news. And this is good news indeed.

You can help others and add income for yourself, your family, your friends and your community by joining proven network enterprises. After enduring tough times myself, I was fortunate to find these two. Or rather, I was fortunate that people cared enough to invite me in.

It was a big year, 2007. One of my AutoWay Ford customers introduced me to "Your Travel Biz," or YTB. A sales colleague introduced me to Saba, a regenerative drink a Russian scientist spent 45 years developing.

I was taken by the efficiency of the networks and the friendliness of the folks.

Ideal for fundraising

Members of your church, club or community group can make multilevel money merely by signing up fellow members. YTB starts paying bonuses, sub-commissions and residuals after only three sign-ups. Saba starts paying after eight. Individuals can earn disposable, donatable income any time by selling Saba/AMS health products directly or ushering others to their YTB travel and shopping websites.

Voting irregularities vex world from midsummer to Series


July 14, 2009

I no longer work in newspaper sports departments or the public-relations office of a Major League Baseball team, so I can say this. I write as a private citizen, a lifelong fan steeped in baseball history, so I can say this.

What games are you people watching?

And what event are you people promoting?

The starting 16

Okay, hands. Which 2,412,359 of you — or 96,494.36 of you voting 25 times each — cast 2009 All-Star ballots for

Josh Hamilton? His doctor, trainer and agent appreciate the starting spot in the American League outfield.

Hamilton, freed of his Devils and demons, reached Old Yankee Stadium's 2008 midsummer show with an RBI pace worthy of Lou Gehrig. Then he entrenched — or obscured — his reputation for all-around play by hitting 28 baseballs out in the BP carnival of that Monday's Home Run Derby qualifying round. He lost thereafter, turning Justin Morneau into a finals trivia answer, like Finland.

This year, Tampa Bay's 1999 overall No. 1 pick limps off the disabled list toward St. Louis as the Least Deserving All-Star. When fan voting closed July 2, he had 6 home runs, 24 RBI, a .240 average and a few highlight defensive plays in 35 games and 125 at-bats.
