The accident happened around 10:30 a.m. as the driver Lynda Michelle Hise was driving northbound on U.S. 27 in her 1993 Ford pickup. According to a report from Florida Highway Patrol, Hise lost control of her car, for reasons unknown, and corrected. She was able to get back onto the highway but could not maintain before losing control. She crossed both northbound lanes and went onto the grassy shoulder of the highway. She lost control and her vehicle overturned several times before nally coming to a rest upright. She was own out to Lee Memorial Hospital where he condition is listed as being critical. The cause of the accident is yet to be determined. Hise was wearing her seat belt at the time of the accident. FHP is saying that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsNow that the rains have nally arrived, it's time to start thinking about mosquitoes. It's so important for you to protect yourself and your family from mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus infection, St. Louis Encephalitis, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Once a person is infected, they may have mild symptoms which include headache, fev er, dizziness, and fatigue, but other severe symptoms are also possible. Mosquito-borne diseases can cause serious illnesses and sometimes death in people of any age, but children and those over 50 are at greatest risk for severe reactions and disease. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best way to prevent disease. Please remember the ve D's: Dusk and Dawn Avoid being outdoors w hen mosquitoes are seeking blood. Dress Wear clothing that covers most of y our skin. DEET When the potential exists for exposure to mosquitoes, repellents containing up to 30 percent DEET are recommended. Oil of lemon eucalyptus can also be effective. Drainage Check around your home to rid the area of standing water, where mosquitoes lay eggs. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before applying a repellent. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is appropriate. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children less than three years old. Infants should be kept indoors or mosquito netting should be used over carriers and strollers when outside. Never apply repellents to a child's hands. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or onto clothing, but not under clothing. Do not apply repellent near the eyes or mouth, cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breeding Sites Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in playgrounds to drain. Turn over or remove any empty containers (cups, pots, buckets, etc.). Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Store boats upside down or with a cover Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal feeding dishes at least once a week. Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least once a week. Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that prevent the ow of water. For more information on mosquito-borne illnesses, visit the Florida Department of Health's Environmental Health web site at: http://www. doh.state. .us/Environment/medicine/arboviral/ index.html Please take action now so that you don't let mosquitoes take a bite out of your summer activities! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 TOMYMANYFRIENDSFORTHE FOOD,SUPPORTANMOSTOFALL THEPRAYERSDURINGTHELOSSOF MYYOUNGESTSON, EDDIEKEITH.

UF develops method to do so BY ROBERT WELLS Univ. of FloridaPlastic may compete with paper in the grocery line, but it doesn’t have to compete with the w orld’s food supply, according to University of Florida researchers. They’ve developed a way to produce plastic that doesn’t use valuable natural resources, such as food or fuel, for raw materials. The new method uses a strain of bacteria to create bioplastic from discarded plant material, such as yard waste. Bioplastic, or plastic from renewable resources, is produced when an organism such as a bacterium creates lactic acid while fermenting carbohydrates. The lactic acid can then be converted into long chains of molecules to form plastic. Current bioplastic production uses food carbohydrates, such as cane sugar or corn starch, as raw materials. Traditional plastic production requires petroleum. Keelnatham Shanmugam, a UF microbiology and cell science professor, Lonnie Ingram, a distinguished professor in microbiology and cell science, and their co-workers made the development. Their research is published in the May issue of the Journal of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology. “As we start using more and more bioplastics, w e are infringing upon the use of food material,” said Shanmugam. “We’d like to switch away from food-based carbohydrates to non-food-based carbohydrates for producing plastics.” Using discarded plant material to produce plastic helps keep commodity prices down. The plastic produced from the process is both biodegradable and recyclable, Shanmugam said. In the study, the researchers tested the bacterium — Bacillus coagulans strain 36D1 — for its ability to produce lactic acid in a variety of conditions typical of bioplastic production. The bacterium was collected from a geyser in Calistoga, Calif., which was one of the many places the researchers sampled for bacteria. Previous attempts to produce lactic acid from discarded plant materials using microorganisms have not yielded enough lactic acid and weren’t cost effective. However, Shanmugam and Ingram found that by adding calcium carbonate to the process, they achieved lactic acid yields as high as those achieved by organisms that fermented food carbohydrates. Additionally, the heat-tolerant bacterial strain also cut production costs signi cantly by allowing the process to run at a higher temperature, which reduced the amount of expensive, plant-digesting enzymes required by up to four times. Cost savings are also achieved by eliminating the need for food carbohydrates as raw materials since discarded plant waste is less expensive. For example, using straw as a raw material is 13 times less expensive than sugar and ve times less expensive than corn or wheat. Mark Ou, a UF biological scientist and the study’s lead author, said increases in oil prices over the last several years have led to more interest in petroleum alternatives for plastic production. “If we can save some of our oil and turn our plants into our plastic cups and packaging, then we can increase our national security by reducing our dependence on foreign oil,” Ou said. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Harris, Chairman Hendry County Board of County Commissioners 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 21, 2011 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonBirdwatching and developing wildlife habitat can be fun for youth and adults. Food, water, shelter, habitat, and safety are important considerations when attracting wildlife. Excellent resources to learn about “Landscaping for Wildlife” can be found on the University of Florida’s IFAS Living Green website: http://livinggreen.ifas.ufl. edu/ or at your local IFAS Extension Of ce. One interesting bird built for marsh life is the Tricolored Heron. The Tricolored Heron is fairly common, but with decreasing numbers they are designated a Species of Special Concern in Florida. This slim, medium sized heron was formerly known as the Louisiana Heron. Adults have a dark slate-blue head and upper body with a purplish chest and white belly. During breeding season, the Tricolored Heron sports a short white head plume, a buffy throat and fore-neck, a blue face and a blue bill, tipped w ith black. Non breeding adults have a yellow face, bill and legs; the throat and fore-neck are white. On juvenile Tricolored Herons, rusty red adorns the head, neck, upper back, and front parts of the wing. Long legs enable them to wade and see down through water while using long toes to churn up food and distribute its weight over soft mud. Foraging behavior is very active and it often runs after sh. A long neck and bill help this elegant bird reach prey which consists of sh, crustaceans, reptiles and insects. Its vocalization is a soft nasal moaning or croaking similar to other herons or egrets. Tricolored Herons usually nest in colonies with other heron and ibis species. A clutch may contain 3-4 blue-green eggs which hatch in about 22 days. Both parents feed the young. The young can swim well for short distances at 14 days of age and edge at about 16-21 days of age. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on the Aug. 20 birdwatching trip to STA5. Reservations are required.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsWith only a few weeks left of summer break, parents are probably thinking about getting their child ready to go back to school. Along with school clothes and school supplies, parents should make sure preventative health measures are included on their child’s back-to-school checklist. Success in school starts with keeping students healthy and safe. Parents should take their children to a healthcare provider for an annual “wellchild” check-up and to make sure all vaccinations and medical records are in order. Healthy eating, adequate physical activity and good sleep patterns are also instrumental to success in school. Parents should talk with their children about traveling safely to and from school. This includes planning safe routes for walking or riding a bike, reminding them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing the street only at designated crosswalks, and showing them how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if they are riding a bike to school. If your child is old enough to start driving a car to school, please remind them of some of the basic rules of the road. Don’t be afraid to talk to y our teen about safe driving. Allow them to take Driver’s Education if it’s offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle insurance company about programs available to teach teens about safe driving tips. Children in Florida should never have to be w ithout health care. Insurance can improve a child’s access to medications and treatment they may need to control childhood illnesses and decrease absences from school. The state of Florida offers KidCare, a health insurance program for children from birth through age 18. Children can be eligible even if one or both parents are working. Children covered by Florida KidCare are eligible for comprehensive health care, including sports physicals, doctor visits, check-ups, immunizations, surgery, prescriptions, vision and hearing screenings, mental health care, dental checkups and hospital stays. Students with access to these and other preventative health care services are likely to be healthier and perform better in school.

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate.

Recovering from a near-record breaking dry season and a damaging drought, the amount of rainfall that is needed is lacking. It nally looks as if the wet season is nally here in South Florida. For the Hendry County area, the average rainfall total so far is 4.65 in. What has helped had been the extreme downpours that have been occurring lately. The beginning of July did not post impressive rainfall totals. Around July 7, totals began to rise as storms were more frequent. If rainfall continues in the same pattern for the rest of the month, Hendry could have a monthly total of 6 8 inches. An interesting fact shown in the reports is that 4 in. of the rainfall total occurred during one storm period. For the Glades County area, the rainfall is very similar to what has been reported in Hendry County. Rainfall did increase in the past two weeks raise the current total to 4.66 in. Reports are also predicting that 6 8 inches will be the total for the Glades County are by the end of the month. The largest amount of rain that was dumped by a single storm period was 1.31 in. For Palm Beach County, they have reported the largest amount of rainfall of the tri-county area with a current total of 5.73 in. As with Hendry and Glades, the same spike in rainfall can be seen as beginning two weeks ago. The largest amount of rain that was reported from a storm period was 2.17 in. The forecasted amount of total rainfall for the month is expected to be from 7 9 inches of rain. July Sees Increase In Rainfall

Before you set out on the hike, be sure to check the map located on the interpretive kiosk (located in the middle of the parking lot) to nd w here key interpretive points are located. Carry plenty of water, about three or four pints are recommended per hiker, and a snack or a picnic for y our family. Also take your binoculars, a cell phone, and camera. Comfortable lightweight hiking boots are recommended. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and a suitable hat are also important. To enter the trail, continue to the swinging pedestrian gate, located next to the vehicle gate. You are now entering the Fort Center Trail. The rst mile is improved twotrack, open trail. A good hat and sunscreen are highly recommended for this section. You will pass three covered kiosks with interpretive boards along this section. A Florida rain shower might blow along at any time, so the covered kiosks will provide shelter from storms. You will see the Creek, pasture, cattle, and marsh along the open stretch of the trail. Watch for deer, turkey, birds, raccoons, armadillos, opossum, wild cats, and wild hogs. Especially keep an eye in the skies for graceful, gliding, swallow-tailed kites! In about another quarter-mile further, you'll reach the hammock area and a fence line. On the other side of the fence line begins a loop trail leading around the hammock to the south, but for today we are staying on the main trail. In the hammock area, you'll nd huge, ancient oak trees, sabal palms, palmetto, and wild citrus trees. The late afternoon sun gives the resurrection ferns and oak limbs an unforgettable glow. Next, look for two interpretive points located a short distance down the trail, once inside the hammock. On the right, a short trail leads to a view of Fisheating Creek, and an Indian mound. On the left, a short trail leads to one of the sacred, ancient ceremonial sites located in the hammock area. The entire hammock area has provided cover and protection for hundreds of years to protect this most important archaeological and historical zone. The two-track, sandy hammock trial leads to another fence line, then it curves to the right. At this point, the loop trail rejoins the main trail. Continue to hike a few hundred more feet until you see the Fort Center sign on the right. Walk to the sign for an unforgettable, breathtaking view of Fisheating Creek and the hammock. A few more hundred feet to the north marks the end of the of cial trail. You'll arrive at two picnic tables located under an oak tree. What a perfect place for a snack, picnic lunch, and maybe a short nap! You might walk just a bit further up the two-track trail to enjoy a view of the vast, open Fisheating Creek marsh. If you walk far enough to clear the hammock line, you'll see a rolling view of Cowbone Marsh to the west. With binoculars, a view of the edge of the Cypress balds located about 7 miles to the west should be visible. Fisheating Creek winds a total of 12 miles across this side of the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area, between Rt. 78 and the western edge of Cowbone Marsh. Allow plenty of time to return before darkness. Depending on your hiking speed, and stops along the way, your hike should take about an hour to two hours to reach Fort Center. You can hike, walk, run, and ride bicycles on the Fort Center Trail. Primitive camping is allowed anywhere on the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area. Make sure you park in the 2nd lot located next to the fence, and leave a note on your windshield with contact information and your camping location. No weapons or hunting allowed in this part of the WMA. Fishing is legal with a proper Florida freshwater license, so you might take a shing pole, and try your luck. Overall, including the return trip, the Fort Center hike is about 4.8 miles in length overall. Next time, we'll add the loop trail around the hammock area. Enjoy the Fort Center Trail!

And when they do, sometimes we’re the bug, and sometimes we’re the windshield. One night Taylor watched a huge female turtle heave herself up the beach to dig her nest and lay her eggs into the sand. The next day while trying to nd the nest, Taylor found tracks showing the female turtle had gotten confused and headed into the dunes away from the sea. Following the trail, Taylor found the turtle exhausted and all but baked. After pouring water on her, Taylor fetched a park ranger. The ranger ipped the turtle over on her back, wrapped tire chains around her front legs, and took off in his jeep, dragging the turtle over the dunes and down onto the beach. At the ocean’s edge, he unhooked her and turned her right side up again. The poor turtle lay motionless in the surf for a while. As waves broke over her, she lifted her head slightly, moving her back legs as she did, until one of the waves made her light enough to nd a foothold and push off, back into the water that w as her home. Watching her swim slowly away and remembering her nightmare ride through the dunes, Taylor noted that it’s sometimes hard to tell whether w e are being harmed or saved by the hands that turn our world upside down to help us. It reminds me of a story about a little bird w ho didn’t y south soon enough for the winter. It wound up on the ground, slowly freezing to death. When things looked really dim, a cow happened by and dropped a big warm cow pie on the little bird. The warmth of the cow pie revived the little bird, who felt so good he stuck his head out and began to sing. A fox coming by heard the singing and snatched the little bird up and swallowed him. The moral of the story is that everyone who dumps on us isn’t necessarily our enemy, and everyone who pulls us out of the manure we nd ourselves in isn’t necessarily our friend.Finding Faith in Strange Places; Like My DrivewayBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne lady mentioned being stuck one day on a freeway. Traf c was crawling and no headway w as being made. As she looked down, there was a blade of grass growing from between the cracks in the asphalt. She didn’t see it when traf c was moving at 60 miles per hour, but there it was! I recalled grass growing up from the cracks in my own driveway and re ected about what I was seeing too. The grass in my yard has all of the bene ts of growing; sunlight and water, soil that is nourished by the elements and opportunities to be fertilized. That grass under the driveway, though, has none of these bene ts conducive to life yet it grows anyway. That grass under my driveway has a lot of tenacity, a lot of drive, it has spirit! The will to live, even under the most dif cult conditions imaginable is a lesson that blade of grass shows me. We tear it out, spray it with chemicals but it comes back! God has implanted it with a faith to seek to move upward, to seek the light even if it is only a shadow through a crack, to be rooted even if the soil has been “treated” and is never watered, to grow under the poorest of circumstances. Eventually that grass will grow and crack the driveway even more; that’s a will power to be reckoned with! I begin to see what Jesus was saying about having faith like a mustard seed (Luke 17:6ff). If you have it, you can uproot trees or move mountains, or accomplish the impossible. When you have faith, you can do well under the most difcult of circumstances. Faith, though, is not being manipulative and saying “I believe – so let me get my way.” It has to do with the nature of who we are, whom God has made us and are intended to be. The grass is to cover the earth and in it’s own way knows of it’s reason for being created. When human beings do likewise, faith brings ful llment. We are here to help, to share, to love, to respect, to make peace, to do good when we can; and when we’re about why we’re made, faith will give us all sorts of power and abilities beyond what we imagined. Much of the created order seems to have this faith by instinct; we humans are blessed with memory, reason and skill and it seems we have more opportunities to miss the goals that fulll. The lessons to be learned from the creation around us is that faith wins when we do what we’re called to do. I’ve turned down requests for prayers over lottery tickets or performing pretend marriages! But when it comes to healing or nding ones way in life or protecting those in harm’s way; I’ll be there two hundred percent. It has to do with faith. Faith works, I’ve seen it in the strangest of places. Even in my cracked driveway!A Good HomeBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian Church It may be a one-room apartment, a trailer, or a twelve-room house, but it is a good home for a child: 1. If he is loved and wanted and knows it. 2. If he as a part of the family, has fun with the family, and belongs. 3. If his early mistakes are understood as a normal part of growing up, he is corrected without being hurt or confused. 4. If his growing skills walking, talking, reading, making things are enjoyed and respected. 5. If he has freedom that ts his age and his needs and has responsibilities that t his age, abilities and freedom. 6. If he can say what he feels and talk things out without being afraid or ashamed. 7. If he can learn through mistakes as well as successes, and if his parents appreciate his successes rather than dwell on his failures. 8. If as he grows older he knows his parents are doing the best they can, and they know the same about him. 9. If the family sticks together and the members help each other. 10. If he is moderately and consistently disciplined from infancy, has limits set for his behavior, and is helped to take increasing responsibility for his own actions. 11. If he is taught to believe in truth and lives by it because his parents have lived their ideals and Christian faith. RELIGION COLUMNS

Use of Impact Fees in Glades County (Taylor) Board approved Road Sup’t Avant Brown’s recommendation to utilize $127,232 West District Road Impact Fees to pave Thatcher Blvd and North Avenue in the City of Moore Haven. Commissioner Storter inquired why the City of Moore Haven has not requested these roads to be paved with their unused $221,769 in the Transportation Trust fund that can only be used for city streets. She also commented that of the impact fees collected in the West District, 19 were for units west of SR29 in the Muse area and 7 units in the City of Moore Haven. Board approved R/S Brown’s recommendation to use $158,578 East District Road Impact Fees to enhance the Harney Pond Bridge, coordinating with FDOT to create a safe pedestrian crossing. Board approved R/S Brown’s recommendation to use $16,734 Parks Impact Fees to enhance Indian Mound Park. Board acknowledged Public Safety Director Bob Jones recommendation to withhold disbursement of $8,166 EMS Impact Fees until the determination is made for the construction of a new EMS station between Lakeport and Buckhead Ridge, thus no action was taken at this time. The impact fees must be expended by October 1, 2012. Board at this time also approved expending $6000 from the Boat Ramp Improvement budget to annex a concrete slab ramp next to the existing one at the Buckhead Ridge Community Park. County Attorney Pringle stated that at the July night meeting, we will have the option to rescind the current burn ban. He said he is continuing to work on the Curry Island lease with DEP. County Manager & Department Heads Public Safety Director Bob Jones stated we have recently had plenty of rain and can safel y relax the burn ban. Commissioners Items And Comments Commissioner Storter inquired of the time frame for the auditors as they take up much o f the Finance Clerk’s time and the budget noteboo k was not available until last week. Mrs. Choban stated new auditors do take more time their rst time auditing county records. Commissioner Storter commented that Commissioner Beck had mentioned last October the possibility of reconstructing the old restroom facility at Harney Pond into a pavilion. Commissioner Beck stated it should not take much to do, and should qualify for use of one-cent discretionary funds for recreation and asked Communit y Development Director Larry Hilton to examine the facility to determine if corner posts would be suitable to reuse. Commissioner Giesler thanked Bob Jones, Avant Brown and the Volunteer remen for their assistance in the park enhancement project at Buckhead Ridge Community Center. Commissioner Beck thanked Commissioner Jones for willingness to serve on the Value Adjustment Board. Mr. Jones had pointed out (item 3 above) that he has served 12 times in the last 19 years.

As the new school year gears up and to-do lists get longer, make sure to put your child’s health on the list. Updating vaccinations, scheduling annual physicals and alerting your child’s school about allergies and illnesses are crucial steps to ensure their academic success, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “Children need to feel their best in order to learn, and schools need to be able to provide for students’ daily health issues as well as special needs, accidents and emergencies,” says O. Marion Burton, MD, of the AAP. You can ensure a safe and happy year for both parent and child with a little planning. V accinations Thanks to immunizations, most children in the United States today lead much healthier lives than generations past. And while vaccines have reduced many infectious diseases to low levels in the United States, vacationers can bring old and new diseases back into the country. Measles, for example, is still prevalent in other parts of the w orld and has been linked to recent outbreaks in the U.S. Unvaccinated children are at risk. That’s why routine, up-to-date vaccinations are as important today as they have ever been. There may be tears, but the pain associated with most immunizations is minor. Consult your pediatrician about keeping your child’s vaccination schedule up to date. Food Allergies and Illnesses If your child suffers from food allergies or other health issues that require management during the school day, be sure to contact the school nurse and update your child’s health plan at school. This will ensure that proper steps are taken if the child develops symptoms while at school, and that his or her activities are not restricted unnecessarily. A child’s health can change from year to year or even month to month, so make sure the school is well aware of how to handle new conditions or restrictions. Parents should also check that you have provided the school with any special medications your child needs. A nnual Physicals Along with your child’s regular annual physical, aspiring athletes should get a sports physical before the start of the season. Children’s bodies are vulnerable to injury, and as youngsters move through middle childhood -becoming bigger, stronger, faster, and more aggressive -the incidence of injuries rises. Make sure your athlete wears a welltted helmet, mouthpiece, face guard, padding, eye gear, protective cup, or other equipment appropriate for the sport. Of course, regardless of whether your child is on a competitive team or not, parents should promote physical activity for all kids.

Discussing health issues with your pediatrician before the start of the year helps children, parents and school staff ensure students’ health and safety all year long. Tips For Packing Healthful School LunchesThe rush of getting the kids out the door in the morning can make packing a healthful lunch seem like an impossible burden. The typical parent will pack around 200 school lunches yearly, and planning them all requires some serious nutritional skills. Not only do parents need to know how to choose healthful fare, but they need to know how to pick foods their kids will actually eat. “When you plan your child’s lunches, be sure to choose items that are both healthful and fun,” says Edmond Sanctis, co-founder of Sahale Snacks, a producer of all-natural nuts and nut blends. “You want to select foods that are colorful and appealing and that provide energy and nutrients to get them through the day.” Get creative with protein. Nuts and beans provide more ber and less saturated fat than traditional proteins, like meat, cheese, and eggs. Try making a bean dip from chickpeas or pinto beans and pairing it with crunchy vegetables, like carrots, celery, bell peppers, or whole-wheat pita triangles. Or add texture and sweetness to low-fat yogurt with a handful of nuts or granola. Pack edible ABCs. Fresh fruits and nuts are a fun way for kids to get much-needed vitamins, from A to zinc. For example, oranges pack a wallop of vitamin C, blueberries are full of antioxidants, and almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and iron.  Portion control matters. Little bellies require smaller portions. While kids love opening crinkly bags of chips, the serving size may be too large and unhealthful. Instead, look for small portion packs, like .75-ounce bags of healthful nut blends, such as Sahale Snacks Cashews with Pomegranate or Almonds with Cranberries. Choose packaged foods made with natural sweeteners and avors, like vanilla, honey and sea salt, instead of arti cial avors or high fructose corn syrup.  Drinks are as important as foods. Once you’ve gone to all that trouble to choose nutritious foods, don’t ruin your efforts by tossing soda into your child’s lunchbox. Opt for un avored low-fat milk, water or 100 percent fruit juice. Many juice products only have small amounts of real fruit juice, so read labels carefully.  Make veggies special. Add extra avor and crunch to salads with apple slices, nuts and dried cranberries. Or mix in pre-packaged nut blends or seasoned nuts. For young children, consider blends combining tree nuts with dried fruit, like pomegranate. Older kids might like salads topped with more avorful choices, such as Sahale Snacks Barbecued Almonds with Mild Chipotle and Ranch. For more healthful, kid-friendly food ideas, visit www.sahalesnacks.com. “While you needn’t be a seasoned chef to pack great school lunches, it helps to know a few tricks of the lunchbox trade to get your kids eating more healthfully,” says Sanctis.
