competition season, teams are scored by their opponents on a scale of 1-5 based on the sportsmanship of their athletes, coaches and spectators during the game. At the end of the season, the team with the highest score receives the award. This year’s winners are: Varsity Football Coaches Craig Perrino, John Mattia and Anthony Marchetta Varsity Golf - Coach Joe Hetterich

Creative Expressions Everybody Is Special By: John Whitton, Bay Shore I have myself, everybody has themselves. To each his or her own, not for granted, but with skills that embody the spirit for a universal testament of worldly to divine value. How do we love it? Thru respect, be it intense, out of common ground or in a little way, in a gesture of favor and not spite. Do not erase God’s work among all. Embrace each one for gifts as perennial as the grass.

It’s that time of year again. Men and women from across Long Island will be getting all of their red outfits and accessories ready for the American Heart Association’s 13th Annual Long Island Go Red For Women Luncheon. Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 4 killers of Long Island women. For more than 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. More than 650,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. While 1-in-30 American

An innovative community health and planning initiative – one that is ground-breaking for the Long Island region – officially gets underway this Friday, January 10th, 2014, at 10 a.m. That is when the Long Island Health Collaborative (LIHC) – a bi-county effort to help Long Islanders improve their health – and the collaborative’s website debut at the offices of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council (NSHC) in Hauppauge. Dr. Howard Zucker, the First Deputy Commissioner of Health for the State of New York, will “flip the switch” and officially launch the LIHC and its website. NSHC is

the agency that represents Long Islands’ hospitals and is the coordinating entity for LIHC. The Long Island Health Collaborative (LIHC) is comprised of all Long Island’s hospitals, the Nassau and Suffolk County Health Departments, dozens of communitybased organizations, and academic institutions. These partners joined together in early 2013 to combine their expertise in a streamlined and cooperative effort to reach all Long Islanders and help them achieve improved health. The website is a component of their work. The user-friendly site provides Long Islanders with comprehensive health

to two million Americans annually. If the clot breaks loose, it can travel to the lungs, causing a

promotion and disease prevention information at their fingertips. It’s a portal connecting Long Islanders to clinical and social service supports that will get them well or keep them well. The LIHC is one of the few collaborative groups in the state of New York featuring a partnership between two neighboring counties and is the first time that Nassau and Suffolk counties are partnering in such a comprehensive way. Public health and public affairs experts from the region’s hospitals, as well as health department leaders and representatives from social service organizations and public health specialists

from colleges, comprise the collaborative. The group initially formed in February 2013 in response to enhanced state and federal government regulations that require all health care providers, local health departments, and community-based service organizations to work together to assure and improve health in communities they serve. It has now moved beyond these mandates and stands as a fully integrated model of health and social service for all of Long Island’s communities. More specifically, the state’s Prevention Agenda 2013 – 2017 mandate asked local county health departments, hospitals, community-

based organizations, schools and other regional partners to join together to address unmet health needs in communities. LIHC performed that task in early 2013 and uncovered unmet needs in the areas of chronic disease prevention and management, especially related to obesity, as well as a great need for more mental health/substance abuse prevention and treatment services. As a result, LIHC’s efforts will focus on these priorities. LIHC’s ultimate goal is the management of population health, which is really the steadfast coordination and integration of all clinical and social services that

Two weeks into the New Year, how are we all doing on those resolutions? Have we started the intense diet/ exercise regimens, cleaned our homes from top to bottom, blown through our many “To Do” lists and set out on our quest for the meaning of life? No? Too soon? Still easing into it? It’s okay, take your time. There are still eleven and a half months remaining to whip everything into shape – your body, home, mind and beyond – so no worries. Those resolutions will be there for as long

as you choose to pursue them. And, contrary to popular belief, they don’t even need to be set on January 1st. Any day, any time, no expiration needed to accomplish your everchanging goals. Imagine that. January, for me, has always been somewhat of a time for hibernation – of settling in, catching up on some reading (that pile of Rolling Stone Magazines just keeps on growing), TV viewing (there was a reason I subscribed to Netflix all those months ago, wasn’t there?), movies (because we all know what quality cinema is released in the

dead of winter) and, when all else fails, curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a batch of freshly baked (or burned, as the case may be) chocolate chip cookies on the couch. The To Do lists, they’ll eventually get done – either by crossing each task off one by one, or by erasing the less desirables, moving them to another, less urgent column… say, “To Do: Sometime Next Year” … Bundle up, hunker down and enjoy the winter while it’s here. It’s as good an excuse to vegetate as you’ll have for a while.

compete for additional awards in Washington, D.C. in March. A number of talented high school students participate annually in summer research programs at Stony Brook, including the Garcia Center: Polymers at Engineered Interfaces Research Scholar Program, and the Simons Summer Research Program. This year, on the 30th anniversary of the Simons program, 18 Simons Fellows were named Intel STS semifinalists. Ten of the 21 semifinalists who worked with Stony Brook mentors are from New York (Long Island had 50 semifinalists); other semifinalists working at Stony Brook included students from California (5), Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington and Wisconsin. The compelling numbers underscore Stony Brook’s

reputation in developing the research talents of exceptional high school students. Since 1997 Stony Brook faculty mentored 415 Intel semifinalists. A listing of Intel awardees who worked at Stony Brook, with their project titles and mentors, is available at http:// w w w. s t o n y b r o o k . e d u / commcms/simons/intel. html and includes:

On January 7th, the Town Board voted unanimously to approve an extension to waive all adoption fees at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter until June 30th. The action was taken by the Board to encourage residents to adopt a pet at the shelter, which currently houses approximately 110 dogs and 30 cats. The original resolution to waive the fees was adopted in June 2013 and extended to December 31st by the Town Board in October 2013. “Waiving the adoption fees has helped to reduce the number of animals at the shelter, so it made very good sense to extend it,” said Supervisor Romaine. “Overpopulation creates a severe hardship for the animals and a burden on the staff and volunteers. It also increases the cost of care and feeding. Extending the waiver is a ‘win-win’ for everyone. It makes adoptions free to all residents, saves the Town money and provides a more humane environment for the animals at the shelter.” Normal adoption fees range from $5.00 for a dog that has been neutered or spayed by the shelter;

$10.00 for a dog that has been previously neutered or spayed; $10.00 for a cat that has been previously neutered or spayed and $0 for a cat that has been neutered or spayed by the shelter. The cost to spay or neuter a cat is normally $35.00 and $40.00 for a dog. The Town will also continue to issue free licenses for adopted dogs. Those who are interested in adopting a pet should visit the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center

located at 300 Horseblock Road in Brookhaven. The center is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (closed Wednesdays), Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, please call the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center at 631.286.4940 or visit www.brookhaven.org/ animalshelter.

Scholarship Expansion Gershow Recycling has announced that it is expanding its scholarship program to Riverhead High School, providing more one-time, $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors from Long Island and the metropolitan New York area. The program is now available to all local school districts in which Gershow’s facilities are located. For the past 10 years, Gershow has offered a onetime, $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from Patchogue-Medford High School, Bellport High School and Longwood High School. Last year, the company extended that opportunity for graduating seniors from the following high schools: Bay Shore High School, Walt Whitman High School in South Huntington, Lindenhurst High School, Valley Stream Central High School, Freeport High

School, Herricks High School in New Hyde Park; and Frederick Douglass Academy in Brooklyn. Students must pursue a degree in engineering or environmental sciences when entering college in order to be eligible for the scholarship. Started in 1964 by Sam Gershowitz, Gershow Recycling began as a two-man operation with a tractor and trailer, a boom truck and the first portable car flattener. Now with its second generation carrying on its legacy, Gershow employs over 750 people on Long Island and the metropolitan New York area, contributing millions of dollars to the local economy, while helping to preserve the region’s environment. 2014 marks the tenth consecutive year that Gershow has offered the scholarship. “Since 1964, Gershow Recycling

Duck Duck Dewey

has been leading the way in preserving Long Island’s environment. This scholarship reflects our company’s goals of environmental conservation and the need to encourage the pursuit of advanced degrees to enhance our region’s and nation’s competitiveness,” said Kevin Gershowitz, President of Gershow Recycling. Students who are interested in applying for the scholarship may contact their respective high schools. Gershow has nine locations throughout Long Island and the metropolitan New York area: Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Freeport, Valley Stream, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call 631.289.6188 or visit www. gershow.com.

Edna Louise Spear Elementary School librarian Selinda Moore is inspiring students to learn about the Dewey Decimal System through the interactive program Duck, Duck, Dewey. The program’s various activities are helping second- and third-graders better learn the library classification system using 10 differently themed “Dewey ducks,” one for each category of

books. “One of my goals this year was to expose students to informational texts and works of nonfiction as suggested by the Common Core State Standards,” said Moore. “This program helps us to do just that. Through these activities, students are not only becoming familiar with the location in the library of texts that interest them, but also texts that will help

them succeed in school and give them the background to be better readers in all content areas.” Since the program’s inception at the school, there has been an increase in students checking out nonfiction titles. Classes will be working on a “Finding Winter in the Library” unit throughout the month of January.

Raising Funds & Awareness St. James resident Dan Turturro and Stony Brook resident Byron Lane will attempt to run 130 miles on treadmills at Energy Fitness in St. James on Saturday, January 18th from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. to raise money for Friends of Karen, a tri-state non-profit organization that helps children and their families cope with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. They will work beat their last year run of 127.55 miles at the same gym. While most people - even seasoned marathoners - could not conceive of running for more than one hour on a “dreadmill,” the pair will work together to meet the challenge. “Think of the way your life is going right now,” Lane offers. “Pretend that tomorrow, you found out that your precious child was diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening disease. Your life would change drastically and forever. Friends of Karen picks up the slack so that families in this situation don’t have to worry about all of the little things that can drain precious time and energy – so they can focus solely on their child and their family. Running on treadmills symbolizes their race to try to get everything done all at once. During our fundraiser, we will focus on running around for these families, just like

Friends of Karen does for their families.” Lane, one of the most decorated ultrarunners in the country, started his running career 38 years ago.

The two men met at Energy Fitness two years ago and Byron has served as a very encouraging mentor to Dan. The two brainstormed a fundraising idea to bring some attention to a deserving charity and were directed to Friends of Karen, which has a Long Island office in Port Jefferson. “We are pleased to be able to help support this important organization,” said 56 year-old Turturro. “No one is prepared for a life-threatening illness to strike their child. People going through this type of family crisis have enough to worry about. Friends of Karen provides the support that lets parents focus on what’s most important: their child.” Friends of Karen provides emotional, financial and advocacy support for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in order to keep them stable, functioning and able to cope.

Congressional Nominations

The Port Jefferson School District is proud to announce that Earl L. Vandermeulen High School students Paul Cavanagh and Nicholas Heide have received service academy congressional nominations from New York State Congressman Timothy Bishop. In order to attend a service academy, a candidate must

receive this nomination. In a congratulatory letter that both students received, Congressman Bishop wrote, “Your military leadership potential is evident, and you have consistently shown that you are a dedicated and responsible individual who is deeply committed to serving our country.”

On December 15th, the two students and their families attended a luncheon for nominees at the Coram Fire Department, hosted by Congressman Bishop and his staff. Paul received a nomination to the U.S Merchant Marine Academy and Nicholas received a nomination to the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Professional Pilot

To win appointment to the United States Air Force Academy (USAF), you must be of good moral character and meet high leadership, academic, physical, and medical standards. On December 15th, Nicholas Heide, Port Jefferson UFSD, was nominated by Congressman Timothy Bishop to attend the USAF

at Colorado Springs, CO. Nicholas said, “I proved to the Congressman’s service admissions board that I am a motivated and talented young individual seeking a career in aviation. I also expressed my deep appreciation for the benefits I have received from the Suffolk Aviation Academy of Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied

Technology. The Academy has readied me for my future career in aviation. It has been one of the most challenging and exciting educational experiences I have ever had.” Professional Pilot Teacher Lou Ballester said, “Nick is a second year student in the Professional Pilot Program at Eastern Suffolk BOCES. He has taken the challenge to become a private pilot very seriously. This course is comprised of subjects such as aerodynamics, history, navigation, meteorology, propulsion systems, and physiology.” Nicholas passed his FAA Private Pilot written exam and has flown solo in a Cessna 172 aircraft. At present, Nicholas is preparing for his cross country flights from Brookhaven to Hartford, CT, and Poughkeepsie, NY. Mr. Ballester added that Nick is in the top five percent of the class.

Shredding Events Supervisor Ed Romaine, Councilman Tim Mazzei and Councilwoman Bonner announced today that the Town will hold two special “post-holiday” residential shredding and e-waste drop-off events for residents to recycle their old paper documents and safely dispose of unused electronic devices. The events will be on Saturday, January 11th at Brookhaven Town Hall in Farmingville and Saturday, January 18th at Rose Caracappa Senior Center in Mt. Sinai. “Many residents will be getting new electronic items for Christmas and we can help them dispose of the old ones in a way that is not harmful to the environment,” said Supervisor Romaine. “These events will also give people a chance to clean out their closets, basements and garages to recycle their papers. It’s all part of the Town’s efforts to encourage residents to recycle more in the new year. Councilman Mazzei,

who serves as Town Board Liaison to the Department of Waste Management said, “After the holidays is the perfect time to hold a paper shredding and e-waste recycling event and I urge all residents to do their part for the environment by dropping off their old electronics and paper. By participating, they can help make Brookhaven a better place to live.” Councilwoman Jane Bonner, who represents Council District 2, where Rose Caracappa Senior Center is located said, “Our last e-waste event at Rose Caracappa, was a huge success with over 15,000 pounds collected. We should all make recycling our New Year’s resolution and this is a great way to get started.” Residents can also drop off old electronic devices all year round at the resident e-waste drop-off site at the Brookhaven Town Landfill, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12 noon. Starting January 6th,

residents can dispose of their e-waste at the Manorville Compost Facility, located on Papermill road in Manorville. Drop off Hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Documents brought to the shredding event will be dumped into a 65-gallon container and then into the shredder, enabling each participant to witness the secure destruction of sensitive papers. Paper can be brought in boxes or bags. Documents can remain stapled together, but paper clips and other metal must be removed along with any other contaminants such as rubber bands. Brookhaven Town Hall is located at One Independence Hill in Farmingville and the Rose Caracappa Senior Center is located at 739 Route 25A in Mount Sinai. For more information about recycling in the Town of Brookhaven, visit www. brookhaven.org or call 631.451.TOWN (8696).

Naturally Lowering Cholesterol

SUFFOLK ZONE 6 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY JANUARY 15, 2014 • www.southbaysneighbor.com

(NAPSI)—If living a healthier life is your cup of tea, you may be interested in an easy way to improve your health— using the natural antioxidant powers of tea. Almost half of all

Americans are overweight and have dangerously high levels of cholesterol. Heart attacks are still the No. 1 killer in the U.S. The problem is that high cholesterol and your risk may be greater than you

think. According to American Heart Association guidelines, the acceptable level of “bad cholesterol” is 30 percent lower than it used to be only a few years ago. This means that

Common Car Seat Mistakes Parents Should Avoid (NAPSI)—Parents of young children need to be better educated in order to avoid making potentially dangerous safety mistakes when they are on the go. The Problem Automobile crashes remain a leading cause of death for children and it’s important that parents consistently and correctly use the appropriate car seat to keep their child passengers safe. Many parents may be unknowingly endangering their children as three out of four car seats are not used correctly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some Answers Busy parents and caregivers may be tempted by safety shortcuts when transporting children. AAA offers simple reminders to protect parents’ most precious cargo.

Shortcut: “I’m only driving a mile from home, so my son doesn’t need to be secured in his car seat since it’s a short trip.” Reminder: You should buckle up properly on every trip—no matter the distance—especially since most crashes occur close to home. Shortcut: “I’m picking up several kids after soccer practice and I’m going to put my 8-year-old daughter in the front seat so all the children can fit into the car.” Reminder: All children under age 13 are safest when riding in the backseat and properly restrained in a car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Shortcut: “We will be driving more people in our car than we have seat belts. Since it’s a short trip, it’s not a big deal for someone to ride on another person’s lap.”

Reminder: It’s never safe to ride on another person’s lap. Each passenger should be properly restrained on every trip. Shortcut: “My son is 10 years old and 4’6” tall. He’s big enough to use a seat belt now.” Reminder: The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends children continue to use beltpositioning booster seats until they are 4’9” and the seat belt fits properly. Help For Parents Fortunately, AAA experts are available to help parents with car seat installation. Visit an AAA club, go to www.seatcheck.org or call (866) SEATCHECK [(866) 732-8243]. Learn More For additional information on AAA’s child passenger safety resources for parents and caregivers, visit www.AAA.com/ carseat.

millions of Americans, including those who never dreamed they were at risk, now are. Fortunately, there are natural, nonprescription alternatives for lowering cholesterol. For example,

For more information heart-healthy products such as TeaFlavin, an on TeaFlavin, visit www. all-natural, caffeine-free teaflavin.com or call capsule made from tea (800) 876-4332. extract, contain as much cholesterol-fighting power as 35 cups of green tea.

Teens And The Internet: Tips For Playing It Safe

(NAPSI)-It’s easy for teens to pretend they’re older than they are online, but it doesn’t mean they’re ready for anything the Internet can tharow at them. By monitoring and engaging teens about their online activity, parents can help them exercise selfcontrol, report problems— and make smarter, safer decisions. Even the best kids from the most loving families take risks and get carried away when socializing or gossiping with friends— and they don’t want you to know about it. Did You Know? • 65 percent of high school students admit to unsafe or illegal activities online. • 30 percent of teens have talked with a cyberstranger about meeting in

person. • 32 percent clear the browser history to hide online activity from their parents. • 64 percent post photos or videos of themselves online. • 73 percent use social networking websites. Tips for Reducing Risky Behaviors Be proactive. Don’t wait for a crisis to happen before addressing online safety. Remind your teen about rules and consequences, and stay engaged in the process. Other tips include: • Explore the Internet together. • Enforce ground rules and time limits. • Become their friend on social networking sites. • Learn about privacy settings and set them appropriately. • Trust but verify by

installing monitoring software on their computer. Trust, Monitor, Educate, Protect Knowing what they’re doing online is as easy as checking your own e-mail, with remote monitoring software such as eBlaster from SpectorSoft. It can inform you of searches for topics such as “depression” or “drugs.” It can also warn you if others are teasing them or daring your child to GNOC (get naked on camera). Whether you’re at home or at work, you receive e-mail reports and instant notification if they’re visiting inappropriate websites, spending too much time on Facebook or taking risks.

School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI) has announced that the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Tech Challenge (FTC) Qualifying Tournament will be held on Sunday, January 19th at Hewlett High School from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The school is located on 60 Everit Avenue in Hewlett. This year’s challenge is FTC® BLOCK PARTY!SM, in which robots must place plastic blocks onto pendulum goals. Students will program their robots to operate in both autonomous and driver-controlled modes on a specially designed field. Each match will last

two-and-a-half minutes, beginning with a 30-second autonomous period. Each team will be required to raise their team flag up a flagpole, elevate their robots off the ground using a platform pull-up bar, and finish the match with a balanced pendulum to earn extra points. The event is affiliated with New York City FIRST, with support from SBPLI. FIRST Tech Challenge was created for students in grades seven through 12 to build similar robots, utilize a smaller playing field, and costs less to participate in than the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Just like in FRC, students apply the concepts of math and science they learned at school to design, build

Gas-Saving Tips (NAPSI)—Conserving gasoline saves motorists money and lessens America’s dependence on foreign oil. These gas-saving tips are from the experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the group that tests and certifies automotive technicians. • Keep tires properly inflated and wheels in alignment. • Clean out clutter and unnecessary items to lessen the burden on the engine. • Consolidate trips and errands; try to travel when traffic is light to avoid stopand-go conditions. • Go easy on sudden, hard accelerations; don’t speed; anticipate traffic patterns ahead and adjust your speed

gradually. • Keep the engine running at its peak by replacing filters and fluids as recommended in the owner’s manual and having engine performance problems such as rough idling corrected. • Use windows and airconditioning wisely. At

highway speeds, it’s better to keep windows up (and airconditioning on, if wanted) to reduce air drag. But turn off the A/C in stop-and-go traffic to save fuel. Visit www.ase.com for car care tips, advice on finding an auto technician and more.

Don’t Text And Drive

Big, Colorful Ideas For Small Spaces ( N A P S I ) — T h e C(NAPSI)—Making a small room appear larger can be as simple as using color creatively. To add some breathing room to a compact space, all you need are some colorful ideas. “Color is one of the easiest, most affordable ways to transform the look and feel of a room,” says David Bromstad, HGTV® star and celebrity interior designer. “When used in a few well-chosen places, such as a feature wall or statement piece of furniture, color can have a big impact in a small space.” Bromstad offers these color tips for transforming a space from tiny to airy: Create a focal point with paint. Paint a statement wall that draws attention away from the size of your space and toward something beautiful and vibrant. Bright or bold colors work well, as the

wall can appear to recede, creating the illusion of space. Go big with lighter and softer colors. In areas beyond the feature wall, use lighter and softer colors to make the space seem larger. Light blues and greens add significant light subtly to a room. Coordinate your colors. Stretch your space and maximize impact by using color to coordinate your rooms and decor. HGTV® HOME by SherwinWilliams offers precoordinated collections of color, paint and wallpaper. The color palettes can be used to ensure that your walls, furniture and accessories help create a cohesive look. Reflect upon something. Placed opposite a window or side by side, mirrors can spread light throughout the room to make spaces feel larger. A tall mirror draws the eye up, making ceilings look taller. When

angled toward your room’s focal wall, a mirror can also create the illusion of depth. Paint something unexpected. Think beyond your walls and consider painting your mailbox or address numbers on your home, a stairway banister or a piece of furniture. Add a colorful punctuation point by transforming a bedroom nightstand bright blue or a desk chair in an unexpected orange. Everything else in the room will appear larger. “Clever use of color adds the illusion of space and injects personality into it as well. That’s what’s great about color; you can dramatically alter the look of a room while expressing yourself in a fun way,” Bromstad adds. For additional inspiration and information on HGTV HOME by SherwinWilliams, visit www. sherwin-williams.com/ hgtv.

(NAPSI)—There are steps parents and others can take to drive down the dreadful rate of traffic injuries and fatalities. An estimated 6,000 people are killed and 500,000 people are injured annually because someone was texting, e-mailing or talking on a mobile phone while driving. The Facts Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and LG Text Ed council member, explains that for teens, texting and driving is an even bigger problem than it is for adults. First, kids text more. Texting is their preferred mode of communication. According to a recent LG Text Ed survey conducted by LG Mobile phones, while half of all teens admit to texting while driving, only 4 percent of parents are aware of this. Second, teens are inherently novices when it comes to driving. They especially need to focus on the road to compensate for any lack of driving skill or experience. Third, teens can literally be driven to distraction.

If a teen is caught up in a dramatic or tense texting conversation, it could be too enticing to focus on the phone instead of the road. The Stats The U.S. government’s official website on distracted driving, www. distraction.gov, cites multiple statistics on the dangers of this careless behavior: • Using a mobile phone while driving, whether it’s handheld or hands-free, delays a driver’s reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. • Driving while using a mobile phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent. • Drivers who use handheld devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves as those who don’t. • An estimated 11 percent of drivers are talking on cell phones while driving at any point during the day. The Steps

1. Impress upon teens the need to not text or talk on the phone while driving by not doing so yourself. Beyond providing an example of responsible behavior, this creates a safer driving environment. 2. Explain to your teens the seriousness of the situation and let them know that it is important to have a plan in order to avoid temptation. For example, have them always keep their cell phone off while driving or in the backseat out of reach to avoid distraction completely. 3. Learn more from the experts in mobile technology at LG by visiting the company’s LG Text Ed website, www. lgtexted.com. As part of its Text Education campaign, LG offers insights and solutions on how to avoid possibly harmful behaviors such as distracted driving. In order to keep distractions to a minimum, LG encourages all drivers to never text while driving and to always use a handsfree Bluetooth device when operating a vehicle.

Caring For Granite Countertops (NAPSI)—Granite countertops are the most popular option available when it comes to kitchen or bathroom remodeling. They look great, they’re durable, but they can also cost thousands of dollars. Granite requires special care and attention because it’s a natural stone. Here are a few tips to help you protect your investment: • Seal your countertops:

According to the Marble Institute of America, an industry group, granite countertops should be sealed so that the stone is more resistant to dirt and spills. Check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best kind of sealer to use on food preparation areas. • Be careful what you clean with: Never use ammonia—based

products-or cleaners containing vinegar, lemon or orange—on your granite countertops. Avoid abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers. Don’t use cleaning products that contain acid such as bathroom, grout, or tub and tile cleaners. Specialty granite cleaners can be used, but they can be expensive. There’s a way to stretch your dollars.

• Mind your budget: JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (www.jawscleans. com) cleans granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass and even your flat-screen TV. It’s also non-toxic and costs less than most other cleaners because each JAWS product is actually two bottles in one. (The cartridge refill is attached to the bottle.)

There are also some other basic preventive measures you can take to protect your granite countertops: • Use coasters: Place a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices that can etch or dull the surface of many stone countertops. • Use trivets or mats: They’ll protect your granite

countertop from hot dishes and help avoid scratches. Granite countertops can really add spark to a kitchen or bathroom. Proper care will keep them looking beautiful. Super Cable A single fiber-optic cable can carry as many as 4,000 telephone conversations as well as several television signals.
