drug inventory dis-
crepancy at the EMS
station. This discrep-
ancy, according to the
minutes of the meet-

the Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office
(LCSO).
At another special
county commission
meeting on June 29,
John Bell, head of
Lafayette County
Emergency Medical

by commissioners that
he had the option of

Bell, who had served
as head of Lafayette

approximately 15
years, voluntarily ten-

After choosing to re-

McMillan that at the
end of the investiga-
tion he could reapply
for the position if the
investigation clears
him of wrongdoing.
Commissioners also

Stanley Romando
Sanders, the son of King
and Marian Sellers, and a
former Lafayette Elemen-


tary and Lafayette High
School student, graduated
from the Florida School for
the Deaf and Blind in St.
Augustine on May 18. His
family moved from Ocala
.to Mayo in August 1997
and from there to


Gainesville in Feb. 2005.
Stanley attended LES and
LHS from.1997 to 2000 and
transferred to FSDB when
he was in the sixth grade.
According to Sellers, the
reason for. the move was .
because with Stanley being


legally blind, the Lafayette
County School system did
not have the necessary
tools to help Stanley finish
his education.
Although his time at LES
and LHS was short, his
mother says that everyone

in their classroom. "Stanley
,can still remember his
teacher Monica Land, his
aid Mrs. Ann, and his bus
drivers Mrs. Reba and Mr.
Bell. Everyone loved Stan-
ley," Sellers said.
While he was at FSDB,
Stanley did very well in all
of his classes. According to
Sellers, he made the honor
roll every year. At gradua-
tion, he received several
awards for his outstanding
achievement. "He was an

'~:


A local veterans group wants to show its
support for our troops overseas. The Suwan-
nee River Valley Chapter of the Military Of-
ficers Association of America, or MOAA, is
sending care packages to local servicemen
and women serving in either Iraq or
Afghanistan.
MOAA believes it is most meaningful for
these gifts of support to come from a local


organization, but it needs the names, mili-
tary addresses and dates of rotation out (to
allow time for a package to be received) of
the military personnel.
The information MOAA receives will only
be used to send the care package and will be
kept confidential. The packages will include
such things as snacks, books, toiletries and
personal items.


To sign up a local military person in Iraq
or Afghanistan for a care package, call Steve
Castro at 386-497-2986, Dennis Tarkington
at 386-719-7092 or Vern Lloyd at 386-752-
4885.
It is the goal of MOAA to get a care pack-
age to every local person actively serving in
Iraq or Afghanistan. The Suwannee River
Valley chapter of MOAA is looking for new

members and would like to invite all present
or former members (including Reserve and

All-Natural Recipe for Beautiful Skin


* For your entire life your skin has been making a first impression for you. It can
reflect whether you re tired, excited, happy or under the weather. Skin can also be one
of the first places to hint toward your age.
Genetics play a key role in how your skin will evolve as you get older. It is common
for skin to lose some elasticity and many people experience sagging of the skin,
dimpling and pigment changes due to the gradual decline of hormones, such as
testosterone and estrogen. But environmental factors, perhaps, make up the largest
part of the equation, especially sun exposure and how you care for your skin.
People are living longer and want their skin to reflect just how vibrant they feel.
Just as a meal comes together by using the right ingredients, you can achieve a
healthy, more youthful appearance by practicing this recipe for vibrant skin, courtesy
of Be Fine Food Skin Care, a line of products essentially composed of vegan with
vegetarian proteins, which are paraben-free, preservatives-free and allergen-free.
1. Starter course: Begin with a fresh and clean surface. Use a gentle cleanser to
wash your face twice daily to clean out pores and remove surface skin buildup and
makeup residue. Cleansers are available to work in conjunction with your specific
skin type, whether oily, dry or combination. Use a toner to close pores and firm the
skin. Toners will also exfoliate the skin, allowing for fresh, dewy layers of skin to
show through. Be gentle when washing the face. Tugging or rubbing can exacerbate
conditions and promote more wrinkling or irritation.
2. Entree: Moisture is essential to your skin. Moisture should come from the inside
and out. Fuel your skin by drinking plenty of water and provide the nutrients skin
needs by eating a healthy balance of all-natural foods, including an assortment of
fresh fruits and vegetables. Facial moisturizers can plump the skin, revitalize its
appearance and make it look and feel more youthful.
The main course of skin care also involves sun protection. Over time, exposure to
ultraviolet (UV) radiation can lead to skin discoloration, wrinkling and even skin
cancer. In fact, 90 percent of skin aging symptoms, including wrinkles, lentigos
(brown freckles), acne, dry complexion, and dilated capillaries can be linked to sun
exposure, say experts. Use products that have at least an SPF of 15. If you spend
ample time outdoors, protect the face and body by wearing a wide-brimmed hat or
using an umbrella.
3. A la carte: Every person s skin is different and may have areas that need specific
treatment. Everything from warming masks, soothing eye treatments to lighten dark
circles, and lip exfoliators to minimize flaking and wrinkling can assist in bringing
out the healthy glow you desire.
4. Dessert: Makeup can camouflage areas of the skin, but many products are now
being created with anti-aging ingredients to assist in revitalizing skin. Look for
lighter, more translucent applications that won t cake on skin and settle into fine lines
and wrinkles.
When choosing products to supplement your healthy skin beauty regimen, look no
further than Be Find Food Skin Care, made up of ingredients so natural you could
actually eat them. Products range from gentle cleansers to toners to moisturizers and
specialty treatments all comprised of common foods ingredients.


All-natural products are one step to achieving beautiful skin and looking younger.

Each and every ingredient serves a purpose, from the basic rice, which super
softens and has huge amounts of vitamins E and F, to pomegranate that regenerates
the skin and boosts the effect of SPF 15, says creator Florence Sender. Food
nourishes us when you eat it so it makes sense that certain ingredients would have a
positive effect when they are put on our skin.
Be Fine is available where beauty products are'sold, including CVS pharmacy.

Green is the new



color for tourism


Eco-hotels are springing up across the country, catering to the responsible tourist.


1


able energy.
Cooperative Hotels that encour-
age community involvement or edu-
cation, such as guests participating in
trail clearing or recycling efforts.
No matter the category, the rise in the
number of eco-hotels indicates the impor-
tance of environmental issues in the current
climate. Plus, by taking a green slant, eco-
hotels have one more trick up their sleeves in
distinguishing themselves from the other top-
quality resorts out there.
Some of the other ways hotels are protect-
ing the environment is through back opera-
tions, where guests may not be aware of the
efforts. Use of environmentally friendly
.cleaning products and furnishings, such as
carpets that are free of VOCs (volatile organ-
ic compounds) may be common. Others cater
to the type of clientele that find environmen-
tal issues important, using recycled water and
offering organic food items to guests.
'Hotels are beginning to see the benefits of
going green. While many guests do not typi-
cally choose resorts based on environmental
excellence, it has become more common for
responsible tourists to look for green certi-
fication or awards when selecting a property.
And more and more, travel agents and hotels
themselves are advertising eco-efforts.


How to create a home office


In recent years,, installing a home office
has become a popular renovation project.
Many homeowners are turning spare bed-
rooms or finished basements into home offices
to enjoy a more flexible work/life schedule.
Others are working full-time from home.
One might think that establishing a home
office is as simple as placing a desk in a room
and hooking up the PC. However, to work
comfortably and efficiently, other steps should
be taken.
1. Decide on the location Choosing
an area for your home office is an im-
portant first step. You may have limit-
ed options depending upon the size of your
residence. If you have multiple rooms, a home
office can be placed in a spare bedroom or
den. It should be away from the hustle of the
kitchen or where there is a lot of family traf-
fic. It s a good idea to locate the office in a
place that has a door that can be closed. This
will prevent housemates from wandering in
when you re busy. It will also allow you to
close the door if outside'noise becomes trou-
,blesome.
Let the outdoors in If you plan on
working from home full-time or will
be spending considerable hours in a
home office, it may be wise to ensure the loca-
tion has a window. This way you can let sun-
light and fresh air in. A finished baseinent can
be a great place that s detached from the house
action. But if it s without windows it could .
prove gloomy and depressing, compromising
productivity.
3. Verify technology needs Depend-
ing upon your business, you may need
a number of installations to get you up
and going with your home office. Everything


from high-speed Internet service to phone and
fax lines to computer software will need to be
arranged. Make sure all phone lines and Inter-
net connections work properly before moving
in heavy furniture and completely setting up
shop.
Think comfort Productivity and
comfort often go hand-in-hand. Shop
around for furniture that will house
your computer and phone setup and any filing
systems and storage needs you may have.
Think about what you need to complete your
work and bring along that list when you visit
the stores. You may find that some of the
chain stores will not have custom furniture
that fits the bill. Look into local businesses
that cater to small or medium-sized offices.
'Since office furniture is all they. 11 likely spe-.
cialize in, they may be able to provide helpful
suggestions. They may also include delivery
and setup in their costs, something the office
chain stores often don t do.
Additionally, you may end up with better-
quality furniture than the press-board counter-
parts from other stores. Plus, don t skimp on a
chair that is supportive. You 11 spend many
hours sitting, so you want to be sure it s com-
fortable.
Lighting and ergonomics You may
have unique lighting requirements de-.
pending upon your work. Chances are,
you 11 need a combination of illumination to
work comfortably. Overhead lighting and task
lighting are just a few options. A professional
should be able to make suggestions to improve
your work space. When choosing lighting,
also factor in ergonomics. Be sure to place
your computer monitor at least 18 inches away
from your face and at a comfortable elevation.


You should type on a keyboard without your
wrists resting on the desk. Tools and instru-
ments you need to function should be within
reaching distance.
Accessorize Make your home of-
fice uniquely you. Bring in fresh flow-
ers or plants if you can keep up with
the maintenance. Paint the walls with vibrant
colors or use fabric and artwork to make it ap-
pealing. Choose desk accessories that are both
functional and fun. You can also include items
to help you relax during stressful moments,
such as squeeze balls, dart boards or a mini
zen garden. Think about painting one of the
walls with chalkboard paint (it s not just for
kids you know) so you can jot notes and erase
as needed. It definitely saves on paper.


7. Avoid distractions Once your.
home office is established you may
need to enforce some ground rules to
limit distractions while you re hard at work.
Make sure those you live with are aware of the
hours you 11 be putting in and won t disturb
you while you re working. Distractions can
also be self-inflicted. Make sure personal time
and work time don t mingle too frequently.
There should be distinct times when you are
handling housework or personal chores and
times strictly devoted to work. It may be best
to leave the TV out of a home office so you re
not tempted to tune in while working. And re-
member, working from a home office is not a
substitute for child care. It can be difficult to
juggle full-time parenting with full-time work-
ing.

Lightning Season is here, and you need our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This
program is aimed at helping to protect members r '"
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
lightning strikes and other types of power surges
and spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful 0
increases in voltage which can damage or destroy
household appliances and electronics like computers,
televisions, telephones, and more. Power surges or spikes can be
caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and trees interfering- with
power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the
base of the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before
they enter the home. An additional level of protection is provided from
surge suppressors to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer
a basic level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific
needs will vary from family to family and members enrolled in this
program can lease additional surge protectors to suit their individual
requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

of the hotel industry meant you were proba-
bly interested in the cost of a vacation pack-
age. Today, however, eco-tourism is on the
rise and the mention of green in terms of a
hotel stay or vacation takes on an entirely
different meaning.
As many industries are revamping efforts
to be environmentally conscious, so too are
hotels around the world. Eco-hotels are be-
coming a popular attraction within the hotel
and hospitality industry. But don t let the
term frighten you off. Eco-hotels aren t nec-
essarily jungle retreats where you have to
hunt your own food and sleep in a hammock
(although they can be). Most are regular ho-
tels that are taking steps to be more environ-
h mentally friendly.
Eco-hotels tend to fall into four general
categories:.
S. Conservation Hotels and resorts
that conserve ecologically significant
Habitats.
2. Green Hotels that reduce, recy-
cle, minimize waste, and conserve
water.
3. Sustainable Hotels that harvest
food and other sustainable resources
from gardens on the hotel property or

Feed the lawn up to five months, with Sta-Green XMended Feed Lawn Fertilizer 35-5-5. This allows consumers to focus their time and energy on other hobbies while still maintaining an impressive lawn.


A re you often green with envy looking at your neigh-
bors luscious, healthy lawns? The secret to having
the greenest lawn on your street doesn t necessarily
ean spending the most time caring for it, but
rather lies in providing nutrients with lawn fertilizers. The aver-
age homeowner only fertilizes their lawn 1.9 times per year
when they should be fertilizing every two months.
One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make is not
providing enough food for their lawn s health, said Jennifer
Clark, marketing manager for Spectrum Brands, the maker of
Sta-Greena products. Traditional lawn maintenance can take
time, and many busy homeowners don t have the hours it takes
for monthly fertilizing and weeding.
Homes with attractive yards generally bring a premium price.
Real estate agents confirm that there s no bigger edge than a
home with top-notch curb appeal. It s the overall impression peo-
ple get when they first see the property from the street. They
must like the outside package before even considering opening
the front door.
Professional Landcare Network and realtor estimates say land-
scaping can add up to 15 percent to property value. An article
published in the January 21, 2007 issue of the Los Angeles
Times found that real estate listings in which the word landscap-
ing was highlighted sold 20 percent faster. Supporting this


trend, a 2003 edition of Wall Street Journal s SmartMoney maga-
zine stated, If you spend five percent of the value of your home
on landscaping, and do it wisely, you might get 150 percent or
more of your money back.
Landscaping is one of the easiest ways for homeowners to
quickly increase their home s value with little cost. Even just
planting colorful flowers, grooming a lush lawn and adding
greenery and potted plants creates a drastic transformation and
higher perceived value.
A recent RealEstate.com survey of 500 sellers and 100 real es-
tate agents across the country found both groups agreed that en-
hancing a lawn or landscape was the top priority for getting a
house ready to sell. Half of buying decisions are based on curb
appeal, according to the National Association of Realtors, and it
is at curbside where your efforts need to start.
The makers of Sta-Green products have introduced a new fer-
tilizer that will keep your grass nourished and thriving for up to
five months. The new Sta-Green Xtended Feed Lawn Fertilizer
35-5-5 is designed to promote a thick, green lawn and long-last-
ing performance. This product is guaranteed not to bum your
lawn when used according to label specifications, so it works
perfectly for almost every species of grass. Extended Feed Lawn
Fertilizer lasts up to five months, which allows consumers to fo-
cus their time and energy on other hobbies while still maintain-


ing an impressive lawn.
Sta-Green lawn fertilizers give customers the necessary tools
to:
Y Grow thick, dense grass to prevent weeds and resist disease
or insects
Y Develop strong roots and dark green blades
Provide a beautiful green outdoor rug for family play that
traps dust, cools the environment and puts oxygen back into the
air
The natural supply of nutrients in most soils is not enough to
maintain an optimal level of grass growth. An adequate amount
of nutrients in the soil, as provided by lawn fertilizers, will help
your lawn to better compete against insects, diseases and weeds
not to mention it will also be greener.
Both warm and cool season grasses need attention during the
summer. Lawns can be stressed by extreme heat and excessively
wet or dry weather. Symptoms of lawn problems often start as
yellow, tan, or brown areas of varying sizes in the lawn.
Sta-Green fertilizers, growing media, weed controls and
grass seed help keep lawns looking beautiful year-round.
Available exclusively at Lowe s, these products cost substan-
tially less than other national brands and carry a satisfaction
guarantee making them the perfect solution for lawn care

Cindy's top picks for outfitting your home cleaning station.


By.Cynthia Inman,
a.k.a. ASK CINDY
It is my absolute pleasure to
help everyone set up a cleaning
station in their homes. A clean-
ing station will save you time
and eliminate aggravation. This
organized closet or open space
area will have a place for all of
your cleaning supplies. Cus-
tomized built-in cabinets are
great, but shelving or do-it-
yourself cabinets and wall
hooks dedicated to your clean-
ing supplies will work. Let s


identify the cleaning supplies
and tools I recommend.
Vacuum cleaner: Every
home needs one. The vacuum
should be stored in a dry place
it is an electrical appliance.
The attachment tools should be
stored within reach and kept
together for an easy grab. A
supply of vacuum bags for ap-
propriate changes and vacuum
belts and filters, if applicable,
should also be handy.
Brooms: I like an angle
broom. One small angle broom

labeled for inside use only
can be used to sweep up the
kitchen and the bathroom floors
prior to any cleaning in those
areas. The angle part of the
broom will allow you to sweep
the edges and comers thor-
oughly. A second angle broom
labeled for outdoor use
should be a larger/commercial
angle broom to be used to
sweep the entrance walkway,
patio/balcony and the garage
floor. This prevents tracking of
dirt into the home.
Looped string mop: This is
my personal preference, always
(you will never have loose
strings left behind). If your
floor is a large area, edges and
comers should be cleaned by
hand and the rest with the mop.
When you have separate floor
surfaces, i.e. tile and wood, use
a dedicated mop for each. This
prevents cross contamination of
detergents.
Cleaning cloths: Terry cloth
towels with sewed edges are
durable and great dirt grabbers.
The softer cloth baby diapers
are great polishing cloths. All
cloths should be solid white
and laundered after each use.
Cleaning bucket: A dedicated
cleaning bucket for interior
cleaning is, a must.Use this
bucket for household detergents
only.
Hold-all cleaning caddy:
This protective carrier will hold
all of your cleaning products
and prevent leakage as you
travel around the house. Spills
can stain your counters, rugs or
floor surfaces. The caddy
should be kept clean and orga-
nized at all times.
Large, heavy duty plastic
garbage bags: These will allow
you to collect garbage from
throughout the house. The
kitchen garbage should be your
last pickup since it will be the
messiest. Keep the roll or box
of garbage bags at the cleaning
station with the other items for
organizational purposes.
Bathroom tile scrub brush
with handle: This will allow
you to scrub clean the wall
tiles. Marble bathroom surfaces
should be washed down well
by hand with a cloth and neu-
tral soap.
Toothbrushes: These extend-
ed fingers will work wonders
around light switches, sink
drains and other tight spots.
Knee pad: This pad serves as
a cushion for your knees when
you re tackling low-to-the-
ground cleaning tasks. Find one
in the gardening section of a
store.
Extending hi duster: An ex-
tending wand duster can reach
ceiling comers, wall borders
and fans. The dust head should
be removable for sanitation
purposes.
Step stool:.This necessity
should be lightweight. Ideally, a
two-step stool will give a good
average reach. Carry the stool
in front of you with both hands
to avoid bumping into walls,
comers or doors.
Cleaning detergents: I like
these items to be stored inside
of a cabinet. Remove the items
from your caddy and place
them back into a cabinet or on
a shelf after use. The exception
is ifyour caddy fits into a cabi-
net for storage. Safety first: All
items should be locked away
from children. And remember
to use care and follow the la-
. beled instructions for safe use.
Rubber gloves: These are a
must to protect hands from dif-
ferent detergents. There are
many sizes and styles to choose
from.
The efficient way to do
housework is to have an orga-
nized mindset. To start from the,
point of your organized clean-
ing station allows you the

Dear Classified Guys,
While I was at college, most of the
guys loved reading your column
each week. Now that I am home for
the summer, I find myself working a
minimum wage job flipping burgers
in the 90-degree weather. This job
got me thinking about a senior I met
at college. The interesting part about
him was that he paid most of his
tuition by buying and selling stuff
over the summer in the classified.
Sometimes it was things he found
that someone was tossing out.
Other times he found a good deal on
a car or dirt bike and would buy and
resell it for more. Apparently those
experiences of knowing how to
negotiate helped him land a
sweet and high paying job ,'"\
after school. Since I don't
think this deep fat fryer job -
is going to last, I'm wondering
if I should try the same thing.
Do you think his job is right for me?

Cash: It's great to hear of people using
the classified, especially when it can
pay for college tuition. However,
before you rush off to follow in his
footsteps, make sure you are up for the
challenge.
Carry: It's one thing to use the classi-

Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze

fieds recreationally to buy your first car
or some of the items you need for col-
lege. In those cases you can save a lot
of money on the items you need. It's a
different story when you want to turn
buying and selling into a profitable
business.
Cash: Your friend probably had the
right personality to fit the job. He like-
ly enjoyed negotiating with people to
buy or sell items. It also sounds like he
had an eye for spotting the value of,
things, even when people were throw-
ing them away.
Carry: Improving your skills of work-
ing with people and negotiating can


definitely be an asset. In your friend's
case, he not only paid for his college
tuition, but his skills also seemed to play
a role in finding his "high paying" job.
Cash: If doing that type of work sounds
like fun to you, then you should sit down
with your friend and ask him more
specifics about what he did. Maybe you
could invite him for a burger!
Carry: However, remember that trying
to make a summer's wage from buying
and selling can take a lot of work. So if
you're simply looking for a way to
make more money for school, you may
want to first turn to the employment
section.

Study Break
Getting a good education can be
expensive. Today the average college
senior graduates owing around $19,000
in student loans. Yet despite the escalat-
ing rates of college tuition, many stu-
dents can find ways to get an affordable
education. About 65% of students enroll
in four-year colleges or universities that
charge less than $9,000 a year, the aver-
age being around $5,800. Fortunately, it
is money well spent. People with a bach-
elor's degree earn nearly twice as much
as those with a high school diploma.
Earn Your Keep
At some point in our lives, most of us
need to get a job regardless of the pay
scale. Today about 1.5% of the work
force earns minimum wage with about
67% of them working part time. And
since most of us started our working
careers in jobs like these, it's no wonder
that nearly half of all minimum wage
workers are between the ages of 16 and
24. Statistics also show that the average
family income of these young workers is
about $64,000/year.

Take Out
M'y son has never been the neatest
child. In fact, my wife spent her days
cleaning up after him while he was in
high school. So when summer came
and he got a job as a bus boy at a
nearby restaurant, we were quite
proud of his initiative.
Since he was no longer around
much for dinner, we took to eating
out most nights and often dined at
my son's restaurant. Although on the
second week, he stopped by our
table. Obviously embarrassed that
we frequented the establishment, he
asked, "Why do you guys insist on
eating here so much?"
Smiling back, my wife replied,
"We just like seeing you clean up
after us for a change!"
(Thanks to SanfordN) N



That should probably
be "picked" up.









These local businesses are here to take good care of you.

Once school has let out
for the year, many kids
find themselves with a lot
of free time. But why
settle for the same old
summertime activities?
Kids can transform the
lazy days of summer into
a world of imagination
and fun with video games,
such as
TRANSFORMERS: The
Game. Video games are a
pastime that entertains no
matter the weather or
location.
Today's video games
enhance summer fun
because they can be
enjoyed with friends from
the comfort of home, as
well as taken on vacations
and car trips. The realistic
graphics, in-depth
gameplay and many other
exciting extras draw
legions of fans. Plus,
many games tie into hit
movies or shows so
players can extend their
experience with their
favorite characters even
after the credits roll.
For example, in
conjunction with this
summer's release of the
much-anticipated
"TRANSFORMERS" film
from Dreamworks
Pictures and Paramount
Pictures, video game
publisher Activision is
releasing
TRANSFORMERS: The
Game, which lets fans
take on the role of larger-
than-life robots. Players
will be able to control the
outcome in their battle for
Earth as they choose to
join the AUTOBOTS in
protecting our planet or
the DECEPTICONS in
destroying it. With dual
campaigns, the fate of the.
world is in gamers' hands.
TRANSFORMERS:
The Game brings to life
robots that can instantly
change into high-powered
vehicles, such as fighter
jets, sports cars or
helicopters. Their
amazing shape-shifting
capabilities continue-from
the big screen into the
game and enable players
to leave enemies in the
dust or enhance combat
strategy with a range of
options in both vehicle
and robot modes. Also
part of the fun is the
ability to crush, topple
and wreck objects in their
path. Garners will engage
in a variety of gameplay,


sform spare time into

including head-to-head
and ranoc d ecmhat.


Players can also take
their favorite Robots in
Disguise with them on the
road with two different
Nintendo DS versions,
TRANSFORMERS:
AUTOBOTS and
TRANSFORMERS:
DECEPTICONS. The
games feature 20 unique
challenge missions,
allowing gainers to take
the action even further
than the film itself.


TRANSFORMERS: The
Game is also available on
the PSP (PlayStation
Portable) system and
features more than 20
characters from the film
as well as those from
previous generations.
TRANSFORMERS:


The Game is available for
the PLAYSTATION3
and PlayStation2
computer entertainment
systems, the Xbox 360TM
video game system from
Microsoft, WiiTM home
video game system, PSP
system, PC and Nintendo


DSTM. The console and
PC versions are rated "T"
("Teen" -Violence) by the
ESRB. The Nintendo DS
and PSP system versions
are rated "E 10+"
("Everyone 10 and older"
-Violence) by the ESRB.

Outdoor alcohol ads boost kidc


Submitted by
April Frawley Birdwell
In the world depicted in an
alcohol billboard, bikini-clad
babes clutch icy bottles,
frothy beer flows over frosty
mugs and the slogan reads,
"Life is good." Ads like these
may target adults, but
children are getting the
message too, a University of
Florida and University of


interested in drinking
alcohol, the findings show.
Most of the ads researchers
found were beer signs in
storefronts, although they
also counted billboards, bus
stop signs and other types of
ads. In total, there were about
931 ads for alcohol around
the schools. On average,
there were about 28 ads in
each neighborhood, after


" think results from this study
and studies like this study
clearly indicate t,_- there should
be policies to bal alcohol
advertising near the schools."
UF ,,,ii .-,'.g ? K.i A. Komro, Ph.D.


Minnesota study shows.
Adolescents attending
schools in neighborhoods
where alcohol ads litter the
landscape tend to want to
drink more and, compared
with other children, have
more positive views of
alcohol, researchers report in
this montli's issue of the
Journal of Studies on
Alcohol and Drugs.
UF and UM researchers
counted the number of
alcohol ads within a two-.
block radius of 63 Chicago
schools and compared
students' opinions on
drinking when they were in
sixth grade and again two
years later. The result? The
more ads for alcohol there
were in a neighborhood, the
more students were

'Real' savings
After a couple years of
cutting my o\% n hair. I thought
about all the money I'd
"saved." Then it dawned on
me that it wasn't "saved" at
all. It just wasn't spent on a
hair cut. Starting the first of
this year, I decided I did such
a good job of cutting my own
hair, I budgeted and paid
myself $20 a month. The $20
then gets put in the savings
account. Now, it is saved.

Just a bit
When you need just a
portion of a cabbage or lettuce
head, remove the undesirable
outside leaves/skin but keep
the root end intact. Cut off
from the top as you need it
and wash well for use. Keep
root end portion stored in
refrigerator as usual. This
works for onions as well.
Gladys

Camping cooler
Every summer my husband
and I attend a big camping
event for eight or nine days.
Before we leave, I buy bottled
water and freeze enough to fill
our cooler and we take these
bottles with us. This provides
two benefits. We don't have to
buy ice until four or five days
into the event (when everyone
else we know is making
almost daily ice runs), and we
have ice cold water for several
days of camping.
Tammy

Dent removal
How many of us have
moved heavy furniture and
saw those dreaded indents in
the carpet where the furniture
sat? Just take a steam iron,
place a cloth under it on the
indent, and let it sit a second.
The steam will swell the
padding back to its original
level.

excluding 22 schools where
there were no ads. One
school had more than 100.
"The majority of the ads
were just brand information
only," said UF
epidemiologist Kelli A.
Komro, Ph.D., who studied
these more subtle logo-only
signs as well as more
elaborate, image-laden .
billboards. "Sometimes we
think that those as are not so,
powerful, but the majority of
the ads we found were those
kinds of ads and still we
found the association with
increased intentions to use
alcohol."
About half of all teens
sample their first alcoholic
drink by the time they are
15, according to the U.S.
Surgeon General, which


released a report on teen
drinking earlier this year.
Teens who start drinking this
early are more likely to have
trouble in school, become
addicted to alcohol, smoke
. cigarettes and use drugs than
, adolescents who don't drink,
the report states.
Prior research has shown
that adolescents' intentions
and attitudes about alcohol
generally predict their later
behavior, said Komro, an
associate professor of ,
epidemiology and child
health policy in the UF
College of Medicine. To
gauge students' thoughts on
drinking, the researchers
asked them a series of
questions, such as whether
they planned on drinking in
high school or if they
thought drinking made teens
popular.
By eighth grade, the
students who attended
schools with more alcohol
advertising in the
surrounding neighborhood
had more intentions to drink
alcohol and gave fewer
reasons for not drinking
when researchers surveyed
them, the study shows.
The ads also seemed to
have the same effect on
teens who were already
drinking insixth grade and
those who had not yet
imbibed, Komro said.
"A lot of times advertisers
say ads are targeted to
people who are already
drinking, so we looked at
kids who were already
drinking in sixth grade and

kids who were not," she said.
"Among those kids who
were not drinking, we still
found the association
between exposure to the
outdoor ads and increased
intentions to use alcohol.
The ads are working even
for the kids who are not
drinking."
Ads like these influence
children by changing their
perceptions of what is
normal, said Steven
Thomsen, Ph.D., a professor
of communication at


' ".


s' urge
Brigham Young University
who studies the effects of
advertising on children. If
kids believe that most people
drink and all their peers
drink, the chances are greater
they will also drink,
Thomsen said.
"The importance of this
(study) is they determined
that these messages have an
impact on normative beliefs,
which are the assumptions
we make about how the
world works," Thomsen
said. "It doesn't have to be a


to drink
(TV) commercial (to be
effective)."
Restrictions that limit or
eliminate alcohol advertising
around schools could help
students stay alcohol-free,
Komro said.
"I think results from this
study and studies like this
study clearly indicate that
there should be policies to
ban alcohol advertising near
the schools," Komro said. "It
clearly shows that exposure
is dangerous for our
,children."
