Hundreds of people
are killed on Missouri roadways each year because
they do not take the time to buckle up. The usage
rate among Missouri motorists is at a 77% usage
rate compared to the National use rate of 81%. In
an effort to reduce fatalities and encourage
motorists to buckle up, the Highway Safety
Division will be implementing this program.
Among those least
likely to buckle up: young males, pickup truck
drivers and their passengers, people who live in
rural areas and nighttime drivers. For more

If you are repotting a plant,
try this neat trick to discourage soil loss and
bug infiltration through the drainage hole.
Instead of using broken pieces of pots or small
rocks, cut a piece of screen to fit the bottom of
your pot. Or you can use a small section of
pantyhose. Fill with dirt and your plant. The
holes are too small for bugs to get in or for
soil to drain out.
"If you accidentally
overfill the coffeemaker, you can use a baster to
remove the extra water. It works, and you
dont have to try to tip over the
maker." -- I.D. in New Mexico
"When my curly, curly hair
gets the frizz, I use a sheet of fabric softener
to take the static electricity out of it. This
works so well that in the winter, I keep several
in my purse." -- P.M. in Michigan
"My garden gloves were not
helping when I was pruning my citrus trees, as
they all have spiky thorns. I used a pair of oven
mitts, which were much more padded, and it worked
well." -- D.C. in Florida
"If you slip a baby sock
over a doorknob, then secure it with a heavy-duty
rubber band, it will keep toddlers out!" --

"To organize sets of
buttons, I use twist ties, the kind provided in
some boxes of garbage bags or on bread bags. I
thread all the buttons on together, and then I
twist it up. I can keep up to six or seven big
buttons together, but if I need more room, I just
twist two ties together to make a longer tie.
This works great for me." -- J.L.W. in
