The reason why the
newspapers are the best mediums for reaching the people
and securing business is that they come into closer touch
with the public than any other kind of publications. They
greet the readers eye 365 days in the year. It is
the persistency, if we may call it, of the newspaper that
gives it value. Every day it is new and must be read and
every day the merchant is making a direct appeal to the
reader for his patronage. It is the constant dropping of

Declared Disaster Area.
President Bush has
issued a major disaster declaration for Barry,
Jasper and Newton Counties in Missouri,
triggering the release of federal funds to help
individuals recover from the severe storms and
tornadoes that occurred May 10-11. The tornados
killed 16 people in Missouri, hospitalized more
than two dozen others and caused widespread
property damage in the three Missouri counties.
Neighboring Ottawa County, Oklahoma, where six
people were killed, was declared a federal
disaster area earlier.

start flowing immediately into the three
counties," Blunt said. "Federal
disaster teams now have authority to help
families with money and direct assistance to
begin the process of recovering from the damages
of the deadly storms."
victims who suffered loses in the May 10-11
storms should register with the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) by calling toll free
1-800-621-3362 or TTD 1-800-462-7585. The
disaster declaration (FEMA-1760-DR) covers only
individual and household loses not covered by
insurance, but anyone suffering a loss should
register so that their eligibility can be
determined. Additional designations may be made
at a later date after further evaluation of
extensive losses to utilities, public buildings
disaster assistance is money or direct assistance
to individuals, families and businesses in an
area where property has been damaged or destroyed
and losses are not covered by insurance. It is
meant to help with critical expenses that cannot
be covered in other ways. This assistance is not
intended to restore damaged property to its
condition before the disaster.

"I have a 42-inch
plasma television with only one wall I can
display it on. This wall receives two hours of
direct sunlight each morning, and it shines
directly onto the screen. I covered it with
towels, but that seemed like too much work, so I
purchased a mattress cover for a babys
crib. It fits perfectly -- the dimensions of the
cover are 42 inches by 27 1/2 inches. Being
fitted with elastic corners, it fits snugly in
place. -- D.J., via e-mail
"I sew a lot and do
alterations for many people. I have found that if
I use invisible thread for the top thread and
change bobbins for different colors, I save a lot
of time by not threading the needle every time I
do a different-colored garment." -- J.S.,

starting to gray, heres a great tip that
came from my hairdresser that has worked for me.
Instead of plucking those random grays (we all

color of mascara. Madam Hairdresser says that
when you pluck, you create shorter strands that
mix in with the longer hair, and that can give
your head a messy look. Mascara works for
