I More Good News!
S love to write good news. Tuesday morning w\e received a
press release (on front page) from Arizona Chemical
Company announcing that International Paper Company
had taken them off the "For Sale" block.
I believe this message to be more good news for our com-
munities. When' a company is sold ,you never know what
might happen. In this case 95 local employees of the com-
pan'y have been somewhat in limbo over the past few'months
as they wondered what the future might hold. '
While thereare no certainties, I think all of us can' rest a'
little easier knowing that current owners and' management
will likely stay in place and the local plant seems to be an
important part of this mix.'

be born before 'they had vacations.

And instead of pursuing a life,

trespassed onto macho territory.
"It's a man's world, no doubt

don't see it as a gender issue. If
I'm out there and not causing

shouldn't be a problem."

Gas Saving Tips
for Florida Drivers
Memorial Day weekend
kicked off the .season for driving
vacations and rising gas prices,
and Americans are expected to hit
the road in record numbers this
summer travel season.
A few pieces of advice are
offered to improve your gas
mileage, that fall into the car care
and driving habits categories.
Lighten the car's load by tak-'
ing unnecessary items from the
trunk, such as your winter sur-
vival kit. Every 200 pounds, of
weight reduces gas efficiency by
one mile per gallon. If you have to,
carn- .It of baggage. avoid using .,,
-a yroof-top container, which' will
increase the air drag If you drive
a pick-up truck, the open bed will
- 'have the same impact-so 'put a
cover on it. .
Oversized and under-inflated
tires decrease fuel efficiency.
Check vehicle and tire manufac-
turer for proper inflation.
SDon't turn on the air condi-
tioner as as a.first response to the
heat. Start your drnve off with win-
dows open tosexhaust. the hot' air
dut of the rear windows and then,
put on the A/C if needed. This will .
also enable the air conditioning to
work faster, and' more efficiently
when turned on.
Smooth out your driving style
*by avoiding "jack rabbit" starts
and sharp braking. Both ,expend
gas an canpresent a hazard for
others on the road.',
It's estimated that every mile
driven above '55. mph costs one
percent in fuel economy. So, keep-
iiag to the legal limit is both safe
and fuel-efficient. Maining a
constant speed also. maximizes
your, car's' performance. If road
conditions permit, use your cruise

Country Berry Cobbler, topped with buttery rich biscuits, is a
comforting dessert popular in trendy Southern restaurants.
A warm-from-the-oven home-
made fruit cobbler may evoke
more absolute appreciation than
just about any 'other dessert.
Once considered too .common to
serve to guests; cobbler has been
rediscovered for, its pure honesty
Although So'uthern ,cooks
make wonderful cobblers, no
country or region can claim cob-
bler as its own. In fact, Cooking A.
to Z says grunt, slump,, buckle,
roly'-poly, flummery, pandowdy
and cobbler are all old-fashioned
regional desserts of cooked fruit
with a biscuit. dough or bread
topping of some type.
No matter where cobbler orig-
inmated, the South has perfected
this homey fruit dessert, being
blessed with an abundance of
fruits and bemes in this area
And Southern cooks have tradi-
tionally been masters at paimng
pie crust and biscuits with native
ingredients to create all kinds of
regional specialties, including

Thunderstorms & Lightning n._a .. oi.J^i ..., n* t.*lo^

Thunderstorms are our most
common experience of severe
weather. The, typical thunder-
storm is 15 miles in diameter and
lasts an average of 30 minutes.
Despite their small size, thunder-
storms are dangerous. ., Every
thunderstorm produces lightning
which kills more people each year
than tornadoes. Heavy rain from
thunderstorms can lead to flash
flooding. Strong winds, hail, and
tornadoes are also dangers asso-
ciated with some thunderstorms.
Lightning occurs with all
thunderstorms. It averages 93
deaths and 300 injuries each
year. It also causes several hun-
dred million dollars in damage to
property and forests annually.
Flash floods/floods are the
number one 'thunderstorm
killer...nearly 140 fatalities each
year., Most flash flood deaths
occur at night and when people
become trapped in automobiles.
Straight. line winds 'are
responsible for' most thunder-
storm wind damage. Winds can
exceed 100 mph! 'One type of:
straight inme"wind that can cause
extreme damage is a downburst, a
small area of rapidly descending
air beneath a thunderstorm.
Downbursts, can reach speeds,
equal to that of a strong tornado
and can be extremely dangerous
Hail causes nearly $1 billion
in damage to property and crops
annually. Large hail stones can
fall at speeds faster than 100
mph. The costliest U.S. hailstorm
occurred in Denmer. CO in July
1990. Total damage was S625
Lightning is-perhaps the most
spectacular phenomenon associ-
ated with thunderstorms. Most
lightning deaths and injuries
occur when peple are caught
outdoors, most often in the sum-
mer months and dunng the after-
noon and early 'evening. In the
past decade. over 15,000 light-
ning-induced fires nationwide
have resulted in several hundred
million dollars a year in damage
and the loss of 2 million acres of
forest. Your chances of being
struck by lightning are estimated
to be I in, 600.000 but could be
reduced by, following safety rules.
When conditions are favor-
able for severe weather to develop.
a severe thunderstorm watch is
When severe weather has
-been reported by spotters or indi-
'cated by radar, a severe thunder-
storm warning is issued.
Warnings indicate imminent dan-
ger to life and property to those in
the path of the storm.
What you can do to be safe!
Before the storm: check
weather forecasts, before leaving
for extended, periods outdoors;
'Watch for signs of approaching
storms. Postpone outdoor activi-
ties if thunderstorms are immnu--
