The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts continues the Saturday Morning Children’s Series with the Mad Cap Puppets presentation of “The Cinderella Files.” The play is at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the theater, 4990 Glenway Ave. Ever wonder what would happen if Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother went on vacation? In Madcap’s twisted take on the classic fairy tale, it’s up to her husband Ralph, the Fairy Godfather, to get Cinderella to the ball. With help from the audience, giant puppets, and the “big wand,” Ralph might have a chance. In this hilarious production, Madcap also explores Cinderella as it is told by the Scandinavians in “Diamonds and Toads,” and the Indone-

Beware when buying a used car warranty When shopping for a used car, the salesman may encourage you to buy a warranty. But that warranty may turn out to be little more than a waste of money unless you’re careful. Matthew Terlau, of Lawrenceburg, Ind., bought a vehicle from a used car dealer nearly two years ago. He says the salesman convinced him to buy the warranty at a cost of about $1,500. “They recommended it. They went through that warranty. They talked it up like it was a big company and they did real good work. I was under the impression it was a big company,” Terlau said. The company, Majestic Warranty of Franklin, Ind., had a contract that claimed to cover a lot of items. But when Terlau called to get repair work approved, he says he was given the runaround. “I’ve tried calling them. At first they would answer the phone and they would refer you to different mechanics and then, the past year, it was really hard to con-

tact them,” Terlau said. Terlau said he wanted to take the vehicle to a dealerHoward ship for Ain repairs, HEY HOWARD! but the warranty company wouldn’t let him. Instead, he was told to go to small, independent auto mechanics. The first mechanic, he said, was unable to find the problem. The second mechanic was helpful but, Terlau said, “He did all the estimates and turned them into them. But then I could never get ahold of the mechanic again.” If you think Majestic Warranty would then allow him to go to another repair shop, think again. Terlau discovered Majestic had gone out of business and filed bankruptcy late last year – taking his $1,500 with it. “I thought it was a good deal. I was getting a warranty that says it covers what it’s supposed to and now, two years later, I’ve never

got nothing,” Terlau said. Unfortunately, hearing that an extended auto warranty company has gone out of business is not unusual. So, if you’re considering buying such a warranty there are certain steps you need to take to protect yourself. First, find out where you can take your vehicle for repairs. Ideally, you should be able to take it anywhere. Second, make sure the contract is backed by a licensed, regulated insurance company. That way you can still file a claim even if the warranty company goes out of business. Third, check out the company with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB has no record of Majestic Warranty. Finally, after you pay for the warranty, get written confirmation of the policy, just to be sure your money was really sent to the company and not kept by the dealer.

Prom dress exchange benefits FORCE A prom dress exchange will take place 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, in O’Connor Hall at St. Dominic Church, 4551 Delhi Road. This fundraiser will benefit FORCE, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, the only national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. FORCE’s mission includes education, awareness, advocacy, research, and support. For more information, go to www.facingourrisk.org. Hana Goubeaux, a

sophomore at the College of Mount St. Joseph and coordinator of the exchange says she hopes the event is a success “I have participated in a similar event in my hometown. Dedicated women in the community all come together with one goal in mind: to fight cancer. The dresses ranged from $10-$250; however, many of these dresses were brand-name and the price was a bargain.” For those hoping to earn money for a gently worn dresses, drop-off will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at O’Connor Hall on Feb. 2. There is a $7 cash dona-

tion to FORCE for every dress brought in to sell. Everything is nonrefundable. However, you get to price your own dresses to sell. Dressing rooms will be provided during the sale. From 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., sellers can return to pick up money that they earned, or the actual dress if it did not sell. Any cash not picked up will be donated to FORCE, and dresses not claimed will be donated to charity. For more information please contact Hana Goubeaux at Hana_Goubeaux@mail.msj.edu or Mary Orloff at maryo@facingourrisk.org.

Missing teeth? Mini Dental Implants; a lower cost option Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? After your dentist told you to replace the tooth/teeth with either an uncomfortable partial, a bridge that would grind down your healthy teeth or an expensive traditional implant were you left feeling frustrated? A newer excellent alternative is the Mini Dental Implant, or MDI. The procedure, which is offered by Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko, can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire row of teeth. “The advantages of a single MDI over traditional options are numerous,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “At 1.8 millimeters in diameter they can be placed without surgically opening the gums, so recovery is quick and most patients don’t even need pain medicine.” He adds, “MDIs are not connected to adjacent teeth so common problems, such as difficulty cleaning between teeth and food entrapments are eliminated. And at about the same price as a partial and about half the price of a bridge or traditional implant, they are extremely affordable as well.” MDIs are functional on the same day they are put in, enabling patients who have a MDI placed in the morning to enjoy eating lunch without difficulty in the afternoon. Christopher Omeltschenko, D.D.S. Call (513) 245-2200 today for your free, 6560 Colerain Avenue no-obligation consultation (a $150 value). Cincinnati, Ohio 45239 Dr. Omeltschenko will work with you and your existing dentist to give you what you’ve always wanted, a beautiful, www.TotalDentistryOnline.com confident smile.
