PLAINS TOWNSHIP -- It's not a stretch to call Stephen Motil an active guy. The 29-year-old firefighter with the Plains Township Fire Department is always on the move. He's probably not who comes to mind when you think high cholesterol. But Stephen says his father's side of the family has a troubling history when it comes to cardiac issues. His grandfather died of a heart attack at an early age and his father with an emergency when Stephen was young.
