Approximately 5000 people gathered Oct. 21 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs Colosseum in Auriesville to celebrate Kateri Tekakwitha’s canonization.

Photo by Emily Enger

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Kateri was born near Auriesville in 1656, the daughter of a Mohawk warrior. She was four years old when her mother died of smallpox, a disease which also attacked Kateri, scarring and disfiguring her face and leaving her vision impaired. Following her mother’s death, she was adopted by two aunts and an uncle. Kateri converted to Christianity as a teenager and was baptized at the age of 20. Her newfound faith incurred great hostility from her tribe. Though she suffered ridicule for her faith, she remained firm in it. Kateri went to the new Christian colony of Indians in Canada, where she lived the remainder of her short life. Here she lived a life dedicated to prayer, penitential practices, and care for the sick and aged. Every morning, even in bitterest winter, she stood before the chapel door until it opened at four and remained there until after the last Mass. She was devoted to the Eucharist and to Jesus Crucified. She died on April 17, 1680 at the age of 24. Being sickly most of her life, the exposure to the harsh weather in the cold northern climate, is believed to have contributed to her early death. She is known as the "Lily of the Mohawks." Devotion to Kateri is responsible for establishing Native American ministries in Catholic Churches all over the United States and Canada. Kateri was declared venerable by the Catholic Church in 1943, Beatified in 1980 by Pope John Paul II and Canonized on Oct. 21, 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI. Hundreds of thousands have visited shrines to Kateri erected at both St. Francis Xavier and Caughnawaga and at her birth place at Auriesville. Pilgrimages at these sites continue today. St. Kateri Teckakwitha is the first Native American to be declared a Saint. Her feastday is July 14. She is the patroness of the environment and ecology, as is St. Francis of Assisi.

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • October 27, 2012

October 27, 2012 Hello Again, Well — if you feel the way I do — you must be ready to buy a new TV, mine has the same stuff on it everyday. My friend recommends a Japanese model but I don’t speak Japanese. I walked the dog early this morning hoping I would see or hear a large gaggle of geese, not a single goose. Is it too early in the season for their southern fly? Several extra large Longhorn and Ron Allen trucks passed by. It’s amazing how many of those giant beauties they have and every one shines like brand new. How fortunate this area is to have these two trucking businesses. They must employee 40-50 truck drivers plus mechanics and office help. Can you imagine what their weekly fuel bill must come to? Just think, they must have over 800 tires on the ground every trip. The trucking business is so very important to our area and all of New York State and the Thruway Authority is planning on sticking a knife into the heart of that great business by raising the toll on the Thruway for trucks by over 40 percent. I don’t believe the Thruway Authority needs the raise as much as it needs new management. You think you got problems? How about this? I read, “I have a son in college, and when he’s home there’s no food in the refrigerator and I can’t get food for the refrigerator because there’s no gas in the car. And, I can’t put gas in the car because there’s no money in the sugar bowl, and I can’t put money in the sugar bowl because I have a son in college. Yesterday as we drove off the Thruway exit near Rotterdam, two large yellow Thruway trucks were parked along the road facing the tollbooths. A group of men were standing smoking, some with their hands in their pockets talking — no one was working. That was in the morning. In the afternoon the same type of big yellow trucks were parked along the road facing away from the tollbooths. You guessed it — probably the same men were standing between the trucks — some smoking — all talking — non-working. And the Authority thinks it can solve its financial problems by bleeding the trucking industry. I suggest that some time in between coffee breaks and gab fests they institute a new program called “work break” it would be something new and it might work. The famous humorist, Will Rogers said, “I don’t make jokes — I just watch the government and report the facts”. While I do not think of myself as a humorist, I do see myself as a man, I feel a man should not cry, so while observing our government from the President, Congress, and Political parties on down I feel as though I could swear, but as a Christian I should not do that either. So I take my frustration out on you. I wonder, is the pen mightier then the sword? Until next Hello Again — Keep your faith in God and this country. Soon we will be given the opportunity to put our feelings into action. It will be election day and by voting we have the opportunity to prove we care. Have a wonderful week.

Sincerely, Fred Lee and the Lee Family

Sargalis crowned Miss Mohawk Valley’s Outstanding Teen Kimberly Sargalis, 14, of Johnstown was crowned Miss Mohawk Valley’s Outstanding Teen during a showcase held Sunday, Oct. 14, at the St. Johnsville Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The show was hosted by Miss Mohawk Valley, Courtney Sheridan who entertained the audience and residents along with last year’s teen winner, Emily Stegeland of

Gloversville. Sargalis will represent the Mohawk Valley at Miss New York’s Outstanding Teen Pageant in Staten Island next June. During her year she will make appearances throughout the Mohawk Valley and promote a platform of prevention and awareness of bullying. For more information visit

518-568-2300 Plan for pet needs during a disaster by: • Identifying shelter. For public health reasons, many emergency shelters cannot accept pets. Find out which motels and hotels in the area you plan to evacuate to allow pets well in advance of needing them. There are also a number of guides that list hotels/ motels that permit pets and could serve as a starting point. Include your local animal shelter’s number in your list of emergency numbers. They might be able to provide information concerning pets during a disaster. • Take pet food, bottled water, medications, veterinary records, cat litter/pan, manual can opener,

food dishes, first aid kit and other supplies with you in case they’re not available later. Before you find yourself in an emergency situation, consider packing a “pet survival” kit which could be easily deployed if disaster hits. • Make sure identification tags are upto-date and securely fastened to your pet’s collar. If possible, attach the address and/or phone number of your evacuation site. If your pet gets lost, his tag is his ticket home. • Make sure you have a current photo of your pet for identification purposes. • Make sure you have a secure pet carrier, leash or harness for your pet so that if he panics, he can’t escape.

St. Johnsville’s Nifty Needles

by Katie Ranno On the first and third Wednesday of each month, a group called Nifty Needles gathers together at Margaret Reaney Memorial Library to sit, chat, and, as the name suggests, knit and engage in other hand crafts. The program was started six years ago after library director, Dawn Lamphere, had noticed that many local people had an interest in hand crafts. She has also watched many of the people in this program, and in other programs that the library has, come regularly and create friendships with people that, at the start, were total strangers. The library supports the coming together of people in the local area, and, as Dawn said, “It’s just good to be together.” When the regular members of the group were asked what makes them come to

Judy King Insurance holds Grand Opening at new location by Elizabeth A. Tomlin “A small business that’s big on customer service” is how Judy King Insurance is described. Owner Steve Stortecky, well known as an astute horseman with a farm of his own, is determined to retain the farmer friendly reputation of the business. Stortecky joined the business in 2005, purchasing it in 2009. The business has relocated to 2 East Main St. in St. Johnsville, where it is staffed by Office Manager Virginia Michalik, receptionist Julie Euler and newcomer Jewel Landers, who brings over 20 years of experience in the insurance field to the business. Judy King Insurance is an independent agency, which was established by Judy King, and built a reputation as an agricultural friendly agency. The business, which can be reached at 518-568-3147, offers farm, auto, home and commercial insurance. The Judy King Insurance ribbon cutting ceremony coincided with St. Johnsville’s October Fest and St. Johnsville’s Chamber of Commerce President Margaret DiGiacomo and Vice President Gail Murray were joined by Mayor Bernard Barnes to help with the celebration. “We are very pleased to welcome the business to our village,” said DiGiacomo. “We are

the village. “We are drawing more people into the community with the new businesses opening here.”

Maintaining and upgrading existing duct systems Aside from sealing your ducts, the simplest and most effective means of maintaining your air distribution system is to assure that furniture and other objects are not blocking the airflow through your registers, and to vacuum the registers to remove

any dust buildup. Existing duct systems often suffer from design deficiencies in the return air system, and modifications by the homeowner (or just a tendency to keep doors closed) may contribute to these problems. Any rooms with a lack of

sufficient return airflow may benefit from relatively simple upgrades, such as the installation of new return-air grilles, undercutting doors for return air, or installing a jumper duct. Some rooms may also be hard to heat

and cool because of inadequate supply ducts or grilles. If this is the case, you should first examine whether the problem is the room itself: fix any problems with insulation, air leakage, or inefficient windows first. Source:

Storage Guidelines For Fruits & Vegetables Cold storage of fruits and vegetables was used extensively by our ancestors to keep food after the harvest season. In modern times, the year round availability of fresh produce in the supermarket has reduced the use of home storage. However, even today there are benefits of home storage, which make it a good alternative to buying produce from the store. Most importantly, home gardeners often have excess fruits and vegetables that cannot

be consumed immediately but would store well. Even those without gardens can buy food ‘in season’ when it is fresh and inexpensive and then store it at home until a later date. Both these options are cheaper than buying food in the winter when it is often quite expensive. In addition, stored food harvested at peak maturity from the garden usually has better flavor and a higher nutritional value. Source:

Whatchamacallits This is a replica of Edison’s original incandescent lamp or incandescent light bulb. Contrary to popular belief, Edison didn’t exactly “invent” the light bulb. Despite years of working on the idea, another inventing team beat him to patenting an early model. This is not odd, for many inventors at the time (and before) had been attempting this feat. The idea of a consistent, electric light source was not a new one! Unfortunately, the gentlemen owning the patent ran out of funds and were unable to complete their idea to a successful standard. Edison purchased the rights to their patent and continued his experiments. It is estimated that between 1878 and 1880 Edison and his associates worked on at least 3,000 different theories to develop an efficient incandescent lamp. He once wrote: “The electric

This tool is from the collection of Willis “Skip” Barshied.

light has caused me the greatest amount of study and has required the most elaborate experiments. I was never myself discouraged, or inclined to be hopeless of success. I cannot say the same for all my associates.” Little has changed in the incandescent light bulb. It is still the typical 60 or 75 watt bulb placed in lamps around

many American homes. However, newer and more efficient bulbs — such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and LED lamps — have begun to phase out the incandescent light bulb, which emanates more heat than its competition does. In some countries, this original light bulb is banned altogether. In 2011, Congress went head-to-head on the U.S.’s stance to that issue, Democrats and Republicans arguing their age-old battle on the role of the government, this time in setting energy efficiency standards. The lightbulb was not banned then, but the country is currently in transition regarding energy efficiency, the new standards set to be completed in 2014. What happens to the incandescent light bulb, between legislation and the Free Market’s preference toward Greener models, remains to be seen.

Antiques & Auctions


Collecting by Larry Cox License plates Q: During the 1960s, I purchased a set of vanity license plates with the logo “Texaco.” I understand that my plates were one of a kind, and I would now like to sell them.— Tom, Holly Hill, FL A: License plates have become popular with collectors in recent years. Some of the earliest ones were made of porcelain and can now bring hundreds of dollars in the marketplace. Typical prices are a 1935 Colorado plate, $45; a 1915 Texas plate, $300; a 1939 New York plate, $35; and an Arizona solid-copper plate, $40. The Automobile License Plate Collectors Associa-tion is, perhaps, where you should begin your search for a buyer. The contact information is ALPCA, 118 Quaker Road, Hampton, VA 23669-2024; and Q: I have a Little Golden Book of Walt Disney’s Peter Pan. It was published in 1952, the same year I started school. Except for my name written in the front, it is in mint condition. I have been offered $50 for it. — Laura, St. Paul, MN A: Take the money and run. Your book is worth about half that amount, according to “Little Golden Books: A Collector’s Identification & Price Guide” by Steve Santi (Krause Books). Q: I have what

appears to be a painting of “The Lovers” by Pablo Picasso. A larger version is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Is it possible that Picasso painted this smaller painting, too? — Calvin, Chatham, VA A: I examined the

photo you sent me, and I am of the opinion that what you have is a print. To find out for certain, you need to hire the services of a good art appraiser. You can find one by contacting the American Society of Appraisers, P.O. Box 17265, Washington, D.C. 20071. Q: I have an egg cup with “Snow

White.” It was probably made about the same time the movie premiered. It is marked “Walt Disney Enterpri-ses.” — Ellen, Loveland, CO A: Your egg cup was probably manufactured in Japan in 1937. If it was and is in decent condition, it is worth about $250. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

to learn more about this type of glass. — Susan, Naperville, IL A: According to the 20th edition of Schroeder’s Antiques Price Guide, window glass and hollow ware were being produced in the Pittsburgh area as early as 1797. Coal was used instead of wood to fire the large glass furnaces. At one time, more than 150 glass companies

flourished in the region. During the Victorian era, dozens of free-blown, pattern-molded and flint glass were produced. I suspect your tumbler was probably made sometime during the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Q: I have six copies of Life magazine, including those depicting Martin Luther King’s assassination and funeral, the Marvels of Egypt, and the 1969 Year in Review issue. I also have an Esquire magazine and Harper’s Bazaar, both from 1937. — Pat, Conyngham, PA A: A quick check of several magazine dealers confirmed that most issues of Life magazine from the 1960s are worth an average of about a dollar per issue. Like all collectibles, there are always exceptions. Q: I recently inherited a teapot and several serving pieces in the Tea Leaf pattern. I like the simplicity of the design, and I would like to find more about it. — Betty, Naperville, IL A: Tea Leaf china was one of the most popular patterns to be carried west during the American expansion of the post-Civil War period. This durable stoneware was perfect for the rough and tumble West and has remained popular with collectors for more than 150 years. One of the best sources is the Tea Leaf Club International, 960 Bruden Road, Columbus, OH 43205. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

HEATING Energy audit: What does this mean for me? • A professional energy audit gives you a thorough picture of where your home is losing energy and what you can do to save money. • You can save 5-30 percent on your energy bill by making upgrades following a home energy assessment. • You may be eligible for state, local, or utility incentives to assist with your home energy audit. Source: energy. gov

Keep your home clean and comfortable — and save (NAPSA) — Heating, ventilating and air-conditioning your home is a big job that requires a lot of energy. In fact, it accounts for 30 percent of the energy used in an average home — the largest source of energy use by far. Ironically, these systems also tend to be poorly maintained. Because they’re used every day of the year, they can become heavily contaminated with dirt, dust, animal dander and more. Contaminated systems contribute to poor indoor air, increased airborne particulate and

reduced comfort. Dirty systems are also prone to failure and use more energy than clean systems. The importance of airflow For a productive, energy-efficient heating and cooling system, airflow is everything. When systems are dirty, airflow is reduced. Dirty filters, clogged coils, dirty blowers and other parts all impede airflow and increase energy costs. The solution is to have the heating and air-conditioning system professionally cleaned. This entails cleaning not only the ductwork but the vents, registers,

blower, coils and other components... any surface exposed to the airflow within the system. Cost study How much does running a dirty heating and cooling system cost? The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), a not-forprofit trade association, determined to find out. To do so, it enlisted researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Larson Building Systems Laboratory, one of the world’s most technologically advanced facilities for researching heating and cooling systems.

According to the study, cleaning even slightly dirty systems in accordance with NADCA’s standardswhich includes cleaning ductwork, coils, blower and other air-side system components and changing the filtercan produce substantial energy savings: on average, an 11 percent off the energy used for heating and airconditioning. The more clogged the system, the greater the savings cleaning it can bring. For further facts on having your heating, ventilation and cooling system cleaned, visit

Fun, formal and beyond: what the groom wears (ARA) — When you think of a wedding, you probably think of the bride’s dress, the flower arrangements, the food and the music. But what about the groom? More specifically, what about the groom’s attire? It’s his special day, too. So it’s time to devote some attention to him. Think back to all the weddings of decades past. What was the groom wearing as he watched his bride walk down the aisle? Most weddings were formal occasions and the tuxedo ruled the day. But times have changed. One of the reasons for this shift could be the economy says Jane Carlton

Hall, Fashion Design instructor at The Art Institute of Houston. “When it’s time to find a place to cut costs when planning your wedding in this economy, a formal tux is one place couples start,” she says. Hall points out that even if the groom springs for a new suit, it’ll be something he can wear again and again. But other factors also come into play. “Now people are much more creative, with destination weddings and dude ranch weddings, which are popular here in Arizona, and the attire matches the location,” says Elizabeth Heuisler, academic director for Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing at

The Art Institute of Tucson. She advises that grooms still lay out some cash for a new pair of jeans if they wind up saying their “I dos” at a dude ranch. Cyndy McCoy, a Fashion Retail Management instructor at The Art Institute of Fort Worth, a campus of South University adds, “A nice light colored shirt with linen pants and sandals or even barefoot works very well for the groom at a beach wedding.” And even if you are taking a more traditional route and planning a formal evening wedding, you don’t necessarily need a tux. “Nothing dictates that you have to wear a tux,” says McCoy. “A

nice black suit works quite well.” Hall advises that even if you don’t necessarily plan on wearing a tux, a formalwear store is a good place to go for ideas and advice about current trends. Hall says the recent royal wedding in Britain reminds us that classic looks are always in style. McCoy echoes, “You can never go wrong with the classics.” But according to Hall, when all is said and done, the special day is still about the bride. “In my opinion, the groom should dress in the same way that a museum frames a beautiful painting, so as not to detract from the bride.”

Record crowd attends Nelliston Activities Council annual Haunted House by Elizabeth A. Tomlin Nelliston Activities Council (NAC) members once more presented their annual Haunted House, giving a thrill to youngsters and oldsters alike Oct. 20 at the old Nelliston School house. The event has been in existence for nearly 20 years. “We began putting on the Haunted House about 18 years ago,” said NAC charter member L ynda Conrad. “At the time we used Dettmer’s greenhouse and we also had a Halloween parade where the children could dress up in costume and parade around the tennis courts.” Conrad said the cos-

tumes were judged and winners would receive $5. “Some years we gave $5 to all of the participants!” As time has marched on, the costume parade in Nelliston has been discontinued, while neighboring village Fort Plain provides a costume parade instead. In recent years the annual Haunted House has moved to the old Nelliston School on Stone Arabia St., where more room is available. Conrad said a crew of about 30 people were involved with putting the event together this year, including three Girl

Charter NAC member Lynda Conrad ‘clowns around’ at the annual event. Scouts from Fort Plain and NAC members who had grown up in the Nelliston

area coming back from out of state to join in the fun. “We had people come from Florida, Pennsylvania, New H a m p s h i r e , Massachusetts, and Connecticut,” Conrad said, adding that her daughter and family came up several weekends in a row from Pennsylvania to help set up for the event. “It took us about 3 weeks to get things ready.” Conrad credits Rick and Darlene Hemstreet from Massachusetts for providing a sound system that was used outside the building this year. “It was grand!” Conrad exclaimed. “We had a record crowd of 265 attending! It was wonderful!” Proceeds will benefit the Nelliston Activities Council upcoming events.

People are living longer than ever before, a phenomenon undoubtedly made necessary by the 30-year mortgage. ~Doug Larson

It’s said that in the 1600s, English women would sometimes wear carrot leaves in their hats in place of flowers or feathers.

Halloween health and safety tips For many people, autumn events like Halloween and Harvest Day are fun times to dress up in costumes, go trick-ortreating, attend parties, and eat yummy treats. These events are also opportunities to provide nutritious snacks, get physical activity, and focus on safety. Check out these tips to help make the festivities fun and safe for trick-ortreaters and party guests. Going trick-or-treating? Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible. Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. Fasten reflective tape

to costumes and bags to help drivers see you. Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat. Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation. Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible. Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses. Only walk on sidewalks

whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls. Eat only factorywrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers. Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes. Expecting trick-ortreaters or party guests? • Provide healthier treats for trick-ortreaters such as low-

calorie treats and drinks. For party guests, offer a variety of fruits, vegetables, and cheeses. • Use party games and trick-or-treat time as an opportunity for kids to get their daily dose of 60 minutes of physical activity. • Be sure walking areas

and stairs are well-lit and free of obstacles that could result in falls. • Keep candle-lit jack o’lanterns and luminaries away from doorsteps, walkways, landings, and curtains. Place them on sturdy tables, keep them out of the reach of pets and small children, and

never leave them unattended. • Remind drivers to watch out for trick-ortreaters and to drive safely. Follow these tips to help make the festivities fun and safe for everyone! Source:

DMV Offers online temporary vehicle registrations Customers can now print a 10-day proof of registration For motorists who have forgotten to renew their vehicle registrations on time, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles has introduced a new feature that will allow customers to print a temporary 10-day proof of registration when they renew their registration online. “I am pleased to announce that DMV has made yet another addition to our evergrowing, customer friendly list of online services,” said New York State DMV Commissioner Barbara J. Fiala. “We anticipate this new service will be a great convenience for our customers because they will now be able to print a temporary proof of registration from their own computers rather than rushing to a DMV office in a panic because they realize that their registration is about to expire or has already expired.” Although most registrations are renewed through the mail, at an office or online in time to receive a new registration sticker before the old one expired, many times customers either forget about or wait too long before renewing their registrations. In that case, their only option in the past has been to visit a DMV office to register the vehicle. This new service provides customers with a proof of registration that they can display while waiting for their new registration to arrive by mail. The temporary registration is available through the DMV Web site ( It is available for most vehicle registration classes including boats, trailers and ATVs. There is no additional charge for the temporary document. After printing the temporary document, customers must display the temporary registration on the driver’s side of the vehicle’s dashboard in addition to the expiring registration sticker until their new sticker arrives. The temporary registration is valid for 10 days from the date the renewal transaction is completed. After the temporary registration expires, the registrant can only operate the vehicle if it displays a valid registration sticker. For vehicles that do not have windshields and dashboards such as motorcycles and trailers, the motorist will be instructed to carry the temp when operating the vehicle. For additional information on online registration renewal and other online services, visit the DMV Web site at

Play it safe this Halloween with these simple trick-or-treating tips. G Never trick-or-treat alone, and always stay in familiar neighborhoods. G Carry a flashlight, and wear a watch you can read in the dark to obey your curfew. G Make sure your shoes fit properly, and that your costume doesn’t drag on the ground. G Make sure swords and other props are flexible, and avoid wearing a mask while walking. G Wear bright or reflective clothing, adding reflective tape if necessary. G Approach only houses that are lit, and don’t cut across yards or driveways. G Stay away from pets. Even pets you know may not recognize you in costume.

Novelty makeup Painting your face can be a big part of the fun on Halloween and lots of other special occasions. Most of the time people do this without a problem, but not always. Here are some pointers to help keep your fun from leaving you with a rash, swollen eyelids, or other grief. Painting your face: special effects without aftereffects Decorating your face with face paint or other makeup lets you see better than you can if you’re wearing a mask. A mask can make it hard to see where you’re going and watch out for cars. But make sure your painted-

on designs don’t cause problems of their own. • Follow all directions carefully. • Don’t decorate your face with things that aren’t intended for your skin. • If your face paint has a very bad smell, this could be a sign that it is contaminated. Throw it away and use another one. • Like soap, some things are okay on your skin, but not in your eyes. Some face paint or other makeup may say on the label that it is not for use near the eyes. Believe this, even if the label has a picture of people wear-

ing it near their eyes. Be careful to keep makeup from getting into your eyes. • Even products intended for use near your eyes can sometimes irritate your skin if you use too much. • If you’re decorating your skin with something you’ve never used before, you might try a dab of it on your arm for a couple of days to check for an allergic reaction BEFORE you put it on your face. This is an especially smart thing to do if you tend to have allergies. Color Additives: The “FDA OK” (Or, A Little Detective Work Won’t Hurt) A big part of Halloween makeup is color. But this is your skin we’re talking about. Think about what you’re putting on it. You might not want to put the same coloring on your skin that a car company uses in its paint. Luckily, you don’t have to. The law says that color additives have to be approved by FDA for use in cosmetics, including color additives in face paints and other cosmet-

ics that may be used around Halloween time. It also includes theatrical makeup. Plus, FDA has to decide how they may be used, based on safety information. A color that’s okay on your tough fingernails or your hair may not be okay on your skin. Colors that are okay for most of your skin may not be okay near your eyes. How do you know which ones are okay to use, and where? Do some detective work and check two places: 1. The list of ingredients on the label. Look for the names of the colors. THEN... 2. Check the Summary of Color Additives on FDA’s Web site. There’s a section especially on colors for cosmetics. If there’s a color in your makeup that isn’t on this list, the company that made it is not obeying the law. Don’t use it. Even if it’s on the list, check to see if it has FDA’s okay for use near the eyes. If it doesn’t, keep it away from your eyes. For that ghoulish glow There are two kinds of

“glow” effects you might get from Halloween-type makeup. Ready for some ten-dollar words? There are “fluorescent” (say “floor-ESS-ent”) and “luminescent” (say “loo-minESS-ent”) colors. Here’s the difference: Fluorescent colors: These are the make-youblink colors sometimes called “neon” or “dayglow.” There are eight fluorescent colors approved for cosmetics, and like other colors, there are limits on how they may be used. None of them are allowed for use near the eyes. (Check the Summary of Color Additives again.) These are their names: D&C Orange No. 5, No. 10, and No. 11; D&C Red No. 21, No. 22, No. 27 and No. 28; and D&C Yellow No. 7. Luminescent colors: These colors glow in the dark. In August 2000, FDA approved luminescent zinc sulfide for limited cosmetic use. It’s the only luminescent color approved for cosmetic

use, and it’s not for every day and not for near your eyes. You can recognize it by its whitish-yellowishgreenish glow. When the party’s over... Don’t go to bed with your makeup on. Wearing it too long might irritate your skin, and bits of makeup can flake off or smear and get into your eyes, not to mention mess up your pillow and annoy your parents. How you take the stuff off is as important as how you put it on. Remove it the way the label says. If it says to remove it with cold cream, use cold cream. If it says to remove it with soap and water, use soap and water. If it says to remove it with eye makeup remover, use eye makeup remover. You get the picture. The same goes for removing glue, like the stuff that holds on fake beards. And remember, the skin around your eyes is delicate. Remove makeup gently. Source:

infections caused by viruses like colds, most sore throats and bronchitis, and some ear infections. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can’t treat—like colds or other viral infections—they can stop working effectively against bacteria when you or your child really needs them. See your doctor or nurse to find out if your illness is bacterial or viral. Prevent injuries.

Every year, 9.2 million babies, children, and teens are injured severely enough to need treatment in emergency departments. These injuries are commonly from burns, drowning, falls, poisoning, and motor vehicle crashes. Check out Color Me Safe!

Halloween health and safety It’s the Halloween season and the ghosts and goblins are near. They come to steal healthy living habits, but have no fear! Learn tips for a safe and healthy Halloween. Make Halloween festivities fun, safe, and healthy for you, trick-or-treaters and party guests. Take steps to prevent the flu. It’s Halloween and the flu season is here! The best way to protect against flu is to get the vaccine every flu season. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine provides protection that lasts throughout the flu season. Get vaccinated now so that you will be protected all season long! Wash your hands. Keeping hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness. Keeping hands clean prevents illness at home, at school, and at work. It’s best to wash your hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds. If that’s not possible, use alcohol-based hand rubs.

Develop, maintain, and keep good sleep habits. Don’t look a fright this Halloween! Sufficient sleep is not a luxury — it is a necessity — and should be thought of as a “vital sign” of good health. Sufficient sleep is being recognized as an

important aspect to help prevent some chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart

conditions, obesity, and depression. Eat fruits and vegetables. Healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Fruits and vegetables also provide essential vitamins and miner-

als, fiber, and other substances that are important for good health. Most fruits and vegetables are

naturally low in fat and calories and are filling. Fruits and vegetables are a great healthy snack to serve for Halloween parties. Be smoke-free. Smoking is very harmful to the body, causing many diseases and affecting the health of smokers in general. Even brief exposure to secondhand smoke can be harmful to your health. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as longterm benefits for you and your loved ones. Make your Halloween activities smoke and tobacco-free events. Source: Be prepared for cold weather. Although winter comes as no surprise, many of us are not ready for its arrival. Be prepared this Halloween and make sure to dress for the weather. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall. Get smart about antibiotics. Antibiotics do not fight

Mulching and other November gardening tips by Charlie Nardozzi, Horticulturist and Leonard Perry, UVM Extension Horticulturist Mulching, protecting young trees, and wrapping evergreens are some of the gardening tips for this month. There’s a window of opportunity for mulching because you want to wait until the ground freezes so you don’t give rodents a hiding place too soon, but if you don’t mulch before the snow accumulates, it won’t get done. If we could rely on constant snow cover, winter mulching would be less necessary, but in the absence of that reliability, we need to provide a winter blanket. This is mainly done for young and unestablished, weak, or less hardy perennials. If a plant is rated for a zone warmer than the one shown for your site, you might consider mulching. An example is crocosmia — a tender summer bulb producing spikes of red (usually) flowers in early summer. Although usually listed as hardy to zone 6, these can be grown even in a

cold zone 3 with plenty of mulch or snow cover. You can find your hardiness zones online from the U S D A ( dzone/index.html). Some plants are better off without any mulch, especially in winter, when it can compact and encourage rotting of the crowns. These include coral bells, delphiniums, oriental poppies, iris, violas, and sedums. To prevent sunscald and frost cracking on young, thin-barked trees, such as maples, wrap the trunks with tree wrap or use white plastic protectors. These materials will reflect the warming rays of the sun so the tree bark doesn’t heat up on winter days, only to be suddenly cooled when the sun sets and the temperatures plummet. Protect young evergreens from winter sun and wind. Set four stakes around a plant close to the branches, then wrap burlap around the outside of the stakes and over the top, and secure it with twist ties poked through the burlap. Make

sure evergreens have a good deep watering before the ground freezes because they continue to respire, albeit slowly, during the winter. The most important help you can provide for your hand tools this fall is to wipe them clean after use and before storing them for winter. Any moist soil left on the blades can encourage rust, and dirt can dull pruner blades. Also wipe wooden handles with linseed oil to keep them from splitting due to dryness. Winterize other gardening equipment by draining water from hoses, storing nozzles inside (so frozen water doesn’t crack them), and adding preservative (from rental and hardware stores) to gas for mowers and other power equipment. Leftover bags of fertilizers and soil amendments will not only tempt mice over the winter, they also can collect moisture and turn lumpy, and paper bags can start disintegrating. Pick up some inexpensive large, sturdy plastic containers with

lids to store the bags in; they can also make it easier to dispense the material next time you need it. If you keep birds around by feeding them, you should also provide water for them. The only realistic way to do that in winter is to use an elec-

tric birdbath heater that plugs into an outdoor outlet. Or, you might buy a birdbath with heater built into it already. They keep the water just above freezing and don’t endanger the birds. Make sure to check the water every few days to make sure it

hasn’t evaporated, or to clean and replace it. Also make sure these heated units are plugged into a properly grounded and approved outdoor receptacle. Watch for sales on bird seed this month, and stock up for winter now.

Chow Line: Whole grains turn up in surprising places by Martha Filipic Q: A group of us were watching a football game last week, and someone claimed that the tortilla chips we were eating counted as a “whole-grain” food. I find that hard to believe. Is that right? A: It could be. To determine whether a food is “whole grain,” take a look at the ingredients on the food label. You’ll find that many types of tortilla chips and other corn-based snack chips list “whole-grain corn” as the primary ingredient. Whole-grain corn, like whole wheat or other whole grains, is indeed, well, a whole grain. While this could mean the chips are a better choice than a snack made entirely of refined grains, don’t take that as permission to down a family-size package. While the U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend that at least half the grains we eat should be whole grains, most Americans eat a lot more grain-based foods than we need, period — often more than double what’s recommended. So while it’s a good idea to replace the refined grains we eat with whole grains, it’s just as important to remember to keep total grain consumption in check in the first place. And it’s also important to take into consideration other factors that affect the overall healthfulness of a food: the amount of saturated fat, sodium and added sugars, for example, as well as the number of calories per serving. Whole grains are preferred over refined grains for a simple reason: Calorie for calorie, they offer more nutrition. Whole grains include the entire grain kernel, which provides nutrients including iron, magnesium, selenium, B vitamins and often dietary fiber. Refined grains, on the other hand, have been milled to remove the bran and germ from the grain — this increases their shelf-life and gives the grain a finer texture, but also strips them of most of their nutrients. Most refined grains are enriched with B vitamins and iron to replace some of what was lost in the refining process, but enrichment can’t replace everything. To eat more whole grains, choose: • Foods with the primary ingredient listed as a “whole” grain, such as wheat or corn. • Whole-wheat bread, or bread that contains a good portion of whole grain indicated by being at or near the top of the ingredients list. • Whole-wheat pasta. • Brown rice instead of white. • Oatmeal, rolled oats or whole oats. Terms such as “multigrain” or “stoneground” do not indicate whether the grain is whole or not. For more tips, see the Choose My Plate web page at
