As far as I know, Carthage has been fortunate
over the last several years and has not had any
real problem with kids bein injured on
reason Im guessin is the police take
care to help keep the traffic aware and the kids
and parents take the time to be careful around
Course kids do get a
little focused on roundin up treats and
sometimes do stupid things.
Next to stayin off the
streets with a vehicle on Halloween, it might be
best to avoid congested areas and stay vigilant
of little monsters crawlin in the
neighborhood. Ta my way a thinkin,
Halloween is a great time for youngsters and
adults alike. Itd be a shame to spoil the
fun by bein a little careless.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
"If you have small
children, you might want to keep a red washcloth
in your first-aid kit. Sometimes the sight of
blood can upset a child out of proportion with
the injury. If you use a red washcloth, blood
wont show and you can spend your time
calming the hurt, not the emotion." --
School Nurse in Arizona
"To keep cats away
from plants in the veggie garden, lay out strips
of tin foil. You can tack them into the soil with
pins or even sharp sticks. This will also keep
birds away from low-growing plants, but the birds
have to be able to see the tin foil. Its no
good if they are buried under the foliage."
-- U.L. in Texas
"If you are a
disabled person who is flying, ask if you are
able to use the executive lounge for a layover.
Many airlines will allow this, even if you are
not a member. It has worked for my mother, who is
legally blind. She is able to stay out of the way
and listen to a little TV, and the
customer-service agent who is attending the
lounge can let her know where to go and
when." -- C.L. in Massachusetts
Halloween candy up into portions when we arrive
home from trick-or-treating. The first portion is
for the child to have on Halloween, the second is
kept out for small treats until Thanksgiving, and
another portion is frozen to share with family on
Thanksgiving Day. It helps them to part with it
if they know when to anticipate its return!"
-- Y.L.D. in Nevada
Looking for an easy way
to store flower bulbs? Add them to a leg of panty
hose, tie each one off separately and hang them
in a cool, dark place.
