Food bank ramps up BY BRIANA ALZOLA EDITOR@OTHELLOOUTLOOK.COM

As the food bank continues to grow and help the people of Othello, some changes are needed to help it reach the maximum number of hungry locals. Last week, the food bank accepted a grant for $1,100 from the Avista Foundation to help create an entryway compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, A wider door and easier-to-cross threshold will make sure everyone can get into the bank to pick up food for themselves or their families.

After checking out the sale prices, they pile back on the bus. One shy camper, someone who keeps her mouth shut and is always hiding away, however, doesn’t make it back to her seat. Instead, she emerges long after the lights have gone out in the store, still expecting to be discovered. She hears voices and goes toward them, astounded when she discovers they are coming from the store’s many mannequins. The mannequins, it seems, come to life after the store is locked up for the night.

THIS WEEK ON OUR SOAPBOX …

Still a city girl at heart during Christmas was for all the neighborhood BY LUANN MORGAN OFFICEMANAGER@OTHELLOOUTLOOK. children. We hardly ever had snow COM days at school because evGrowing up in a large Mid- eryone was used to the winwestern city, Christmas had a ter weather and schools were totally different feel than here equipped for it. If the snow was too deep, the country kids in eastern Washington. Sure, we have many of the would be excused. The rest of same features, but they are on us walked anyway, so we just had to plan for a bit more time a smaller scale. For example, there was typi- to make the trek. I didn’t mind. In fact, when cally tons of snow. It wasn’t unusual for three feet of the I was in high school, I would fluffy white stuff to fall over- leave very early to enjoy the night. The next day would be unbroken splendor of that spent building snowmen and newly fallen snow as dawn snow forts, along with lots of was breaking through the sled riding. What a treat that darkness.

Then there were the holiday displays downtown. Every store had animated Christmas decorations, trees and lights. You could spend hours just gazing at the intriguing and unique miniature scenes. I’m still reminded of those displays when I watch some of the classic movies, like “A Miracle on 34th Street.” And the pageantry! There were so many programs and concerts throughout the city – plays, productions, the symphony – something to appeal to anyone’s taste. I still remember how fascinated I was the evening

Through ‘infamy’ we stand united Pearl Harbor. While history tells us it was a day that will live in infamy, many Americans recognize it as a stark reminder of the looming threats we face in today’s uncertain world. While the United States showed the resolve to recover and overcome those tragic events at Pearl Harbor, the Congressman Doc Hastings lessons of that day taught us we must always be vigilant Seventy-one years ago on against those who wish to Dec. 7, the United States was cause us harm. I believe the hit by a devastating attack at fundamental responsibility of

the federal government is to defend America – a belief that was shared by our founding fathers, who saw fit to establish the Constitution of the United States to “insure domestic Tranquility, and provide for the common defence.” Today, this starts with providing our brave men and women with the resources they need to protect themselves and keep us safe. Earlier this year, I was pleased to support the House version of the National De-

fense Authorization Act, which provides the guiding policy for our national defense and key resources for our troops and their families for the upcoming year. This bill, which passed the House of Representatives with bipartisan support, included a provision to prevent fee hikes for TRICARE that were proposed in the President’s budget. The Senate passed its own version of this bill last week and now the differences must be resolved between the two bills.

world and Olympic ice skating champion Peggy Fleming performed – for free – at the outdoor rink in the center of downtown. She was so elegant. So, yes, it was quite a culture shock when I moved to Washington state, leaving a city of more than 600,000 people for a small town with 6,000. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was and how much slower the pace is. Christmas, too, is done on a smaller scale … more of a quiet repose of reflection and peacefulness. It’s a time to relax and the hectic feel doesn’t exist. Yes, it is so very different.

And the major difference is how it’s much easier to appreciate the splendor of the season and the meaning of this time of year. Folks are closer in spirit and honestly offer well wishes. But there are still times when I miss the fanfare. I’d love to have the opportunity to show some of that big scale old-fashioned Christmas to my grandchildren. I am thankful, however, to have had both experiences and am able to at least share those holiday stories from my childhood. That, in itself, makes the season brighter!

The National Defense Authorization Act not only helps deliver on promises made to military members, but also to their families and our veterans. It recognizes the important progress that has been achieved over the last decade in protecting U.S. citizens against ever-present terrorist threats. Since Sept. 11, the United States has foiled a number of terrorist plots and eliminated organizations and terrorist leaders around the world that seek to disrupt

American freedom. At a time when federal budgets remain tight and continue to face necessary scrutiny, it is vital that we remain vigilant about protecting our safety, security and way of life. On this anniversary of Pearl Harbor, I hope we can honor our past and prepare for our future by working in a bipartisan way to preserve the safety of our citizens and provide for our current and former service members and their families in a fiscally responsible manner.

L ETTER TO THE EDITOR Small change will cost billions

By Don C. Brunell President

Association of Washington Business

We’re seeing a lot of news stories these days about the projected costs of the new federal health care law known as Obamacare. Employers of all sizes, from small companies to warehouse stores and restaurant chains, are warning that compliance costs will force layoffs and price hikes. Even some of the lesserknown provisions will cost employers billions of dollars. For example, tucked away in the 2,000-plus pages of the legislation is a requirement that restaurants and “similar” food retailers display calorie counts on their menus. Sounds reasonable in this health-conscious age, but according to the Office of Management and Budget, the calorie display requirement was the third most burdensome statutory requirement passed in 2010. OMB estimates it will take more than 14.5 million work hours every year to comply and $69.8 million for recordkeeping alone. A big part of the problem is how regulators interpreted the new requirement. The Food and Drug Administration decided that, in addition to restaurants, the require-

ment would apply to coffee shops, delicatessens, take-out food, grocery stores, convenience stores, movie theaters, airplanes, cafeterias, bakeries and vending machines. Even the White House was apparently caught off guard by the sweeping scope of the FDA regulation. The New York Times reports that Nancy-Ann Deparle, President Obama’s chief health adviser, personally complained to the FDA Commissioner, after which the agency relented — slightly. The federal government will no longer require published calorie counts for movie snacks or airline food. But the agency’s concession is of little comfort to all the other businesses caught in the crosshairs of this new regulation. Take grocery stores, for example, an industry with average profit margins of just 1 to 2 percent. The Food Marketing Institute estimates that initial compliance costs for grocery stores will top $1 billion. Supermarket chains will be required to post calorie information on thousands of items, from chicken cooked in the store to potato salad sold in the deli, Erik Lieberman, FMI’s regulatory counsel, said. “If we sell an individual blueberry muffin, that has to be labeled,” he said. “If we sell a pack of six, that’s got to have a separate label.” But pizza chains could face the biggest hurdles if companies like Domino’s Pizza are required to display calorie counts for each of the 34 mil-

Outlook

lion possible topping combinations the chain offers. “If they want to put in new products or change pricing or add new toppings, they have to buy new menu boards,” Jenny Fouracre-Petko, director of legislative affairs for Domino’s Pizza, said. “That’s where it gets expensive.” The problem is that, too often, bureaucrats don’t understand what it takes to comply with government regulations. A recent editorial in The Washington Times pointed out that suppliers, ingredients and recipes constantly change. If a store wants to offer something different, it will have to pay around $500 to ship the product to a lab for testing and certification. The major questions are, will this regulation make people eat less when they dine out and at what cost to our struggling economy. The Center for Science in the Public Interest strongly supports the requirement and touts the effectiveness of similar rules. CSPI reports that, “A study conducted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene found that 1 in 6 customers used the calorie information at chain restaurants ….” That means 16 percent of people used the information, while 84 percent did not. Congressional opponents led by Rep. John Carter, RTexas, have introduced the Common Sense Nutrition Act to limit the scope of the labeling requirement largely to restaurants. That makes sense.

Greetings, Fellow Veterans I have some information I would like to share with you with respect to the Veterans Health Council. Eighty percent of America’s veterans do not use the VA for their health care and most veterans do not belong to a Veterans Service Organization. Many veterans have health problems, both physical and mental, related to their military service, which in this case entitles them to compensation and medical care from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Unfortunately, too many veterans and their caregivers are unaware of the connection between theses health issues and their military service. This is a particular problem for those veterans who have served since the Vietnam

Crane festival planning on schedule By Briana alzola Editor@othEllooutlook.com The Othello Sandhill Crane Festival is on track for next spring, committee chair Dixie Fultz said during the city council meeting Dec. 10. The event is scheduled for April 5, 6 and 7. Already, the committee has all their speakers and events scheduled for the festival. The poster is ready and they are finalizing the brochure.

This is the earliest they’ve ever had things ready and it should be a great event, Fultz said. Fultz encouraged the council members to take posters with them as they made their holiday travels. It is important to get the posters put up around the state so they can help bring more tourism to Othello, she said. For more information on the event, visit www.othellosandhillcranefestival.org. Also at their meeting, the city council canceled their Dec. 24

meeting. Their next meeting will be Jan. 7. Among other things, they will discuss at that meeting a grant application to the Department of Energy for new lights for Main Street as part of a beautification project. The council also renewed again a contract with Public Safety Testing, a contract first started in 2004. Each time, it runs for three years and it was also renewed in 2006 and 2009. The service provides the physical and written tests for

entry level police officers. The service costs the city $980 each year, because they sign a three-year contract. It would cost about $250 per year more and the potential of price increases to enter into one-year contracts. If the city were to provide the tests themselves, it would cost about $3,000 a test. The city currently receives the candidates’ test scores throughout the year and holds oral interviews twice a year.

The council also approved an agreement with Motorola. This contract works with Motorola to provide services for the dispatch consoles for the police department. These two radio consoles are used for dispatching police, fire and ambulance services. These are expensive radios and require skilled technical support. The department already has a long-standing contract with Motorola, police chief Steve Dunnagan said. The contract costs $9,662.52

and is already written in to the 2013 budget. The council also edited a policy regarding a cash only policy for insufficient funds. Currently, the policy states if someone pays their bill with a bad check, they are required to only pay cash for the next year. The city now also accepts payments from credit or debit cards. The same cash policy will now be put in place if someone pays with a card that does not have sufficient funds.

Rock Doc: Too much exercise unhealthy 

By Dr. E. Kirsten Peters Washington State University

Medical science increasingly has some evidence of a principle your mother warned you about: there really is too much of a good thing. A few folks throw themselves headlong into aerobic exercise. Most of these hard-core endurance athletes start young. Many fall by the wayside in middle age, but there are also those who keep going, completing marathons and similar events well into retirement age. What happens to the heart muscles of such titans of lifelong exercise? A recent British study set out to address that question. It stud-

ied men ranging in age from 26 to 67 who were chronic and lifelong exercise kings. These guys were fantastically fit. But what could be said about the hearts of the older men in the group compared to the younger athletes and also compared to healthy older men who didn’t do crazy things like run marathons? Researchers used a new type of MRI exam on the three groups of men, the young and old athletes and the “control group” made up of the healthy older men who had never exercised strenuously day after day. The sophisticated MRI was capable of showing truly early stages of scarring (fibrosis) of the heart muscle. Interestingly, none of the younger athletes had early fibrosis in their hearts – but neither did the older men who didn’t follow enormously demanding exercise regimes. (The older men had been screened to be healthy subjects.) But what was striking were the results from the older male

athletes. Half of them had hearts that showed some muscle scarring. And the men with the fibrosis were those who had exercised the hardest and the longest. To repeat, the information from Britain doesn’t get us off the hook when it comes to exercise. Let’s face it, most of us Americans are generally in no danger of running marathons. In general, aerobic exercise is good for the ol’ heart and lungs and will help you ward off such maladies as Type II diabetes. And if you’ve noticed lately that you’re getting just a bit older, exercise is your best single bet to help combat the battle of the bulge. But it’s also true that completing oodles of marathons may be a bit excessive. Here’s one final thought: inquiring minds might well ask why women were left out of the investigations. For years, it’s been commonplace to leave us females out of many research populations. The logic has been that women are different from men. (Yes, doctors have no-

ticed that – medical school is good for something.) In order to have a simple study with only a few people in it, so the reasoning goes, it’s best to eliminate women from the research because their bodies might have differences that would affect the outcomes of the work. Mind you, we could reverse that logic. Researchers interested in heart health, diabetes or colon cancer could study only women – because after all, including men in such studies could complicate results. Then we could just assume what’s true for women simply must be true for men. That’ll be the day. Dr. E.

The doorway should be completed soon. The food bank has been incredibly busy this year, Mobley said. Dec. 4, the food bank served 75 families in one day. They only served 80 families the week before. As the winter goes on, the need of local people just continues to grow, she said. The food bank is located at 949 E. Main St. They are open each Tuesday and Thursday between 1 and 3 p.m. They also distribute food to seniors the first Wednesday of the month between 11 a.m. and noon. The food bank will help out any family or individual in need within the 99344 postal code. Last year, the bank served 4,377 households, a total of 18,904 individuals. Of those

served, 1,587 were seniors and 1,639 were between the ages of 0 and 2 years old. The food bank is always looking for donations. Some suggested donation items include canned tuna, canned chicken, creamy peanut butter, jam, jelly, canned beans, canned fruits in juice, canned corn, canned vegetables, instant breakfast, 100 percent juice in boxes, canned tomato products, cereal, ramen, powdered baby formula and baby cereal and baby food. Cash donations may also be sent in via mail to Othello Food Bank, PO Box 152, Othello. At the beginning of 2013, Mobley will take over as the vice chairman of the Othello Food Bank. She replaces longtime vicechair Bob Fuller, who is retiring from his post. Currently, Mobley is a food bank director and facilities manager.

Board meeting opens with presentation BY ERIK PAGUE SPORTS@OTHELLOOUTLOOK.COM A group of Lutacaga Elementary School secondgraders kicked off the Nov. 26 school board meeting with a presentation of a math project they recently finished. The presentation coincided with the board’s recent visit to the school, which board president Rob Simmons said was an insightful experience. The school board reported on their visit to Lutacaga, their most recent after implementing a once-monthly visit to each of the district’s schools to get an idea of how things are going and have discussions with school administrators. Board member Stewart Hilmes said these visits were useful to learn about the students’ perspectives while board member Juan Garza has seen these chances as valuable opportunities to see policies the board has implemented in action.

The Rainbow Ringers, Othello’s only handbell choir, will preform a special concert featuring seasonal music during a concert Dec. 17. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Othello Christian Church, 915 E. Rainier St. The event is free to attend. It should be a fun evening, director George Roper said. “This is a totally unique experience,” he said. “We’re the only handbell choir in town.” There will be an assortment of performances. The full handbell choir will perform multiple songs. There will also be a handbell trio, a handbell duet, a handbell solo and a solo performance on the bell tree. The bell tree features several bells suspended so a person, Roper in this case, can play a full song with a pair of mallets. There will also be an organ solo, a piano piece and vocal performances.

Wahitis School improvement plans Wahitis Elementary School Principal Pete Perez spoke about school improvement plans (SIP), which all school administrators are required to demonstrate to the board. Perez said he and his faculty have met every other week to set the school’s overall agenda to increase the school’s effectiveness in preparing students for middle school and beyond. Perez said he’s aiming for 100 percent success in all the categories and believes it’s better to pursue loftier goals as opposed to setting lesser goals and missing out on improving some students’ educations. He acknowledged making full progress may not be possible, but his school will celebrate smaller achievements on the way. One initiative being pursued as part of Wahitis’ SIP is Fast Math, a Web-based math and technology skills assessment that paces itself according to a student’s level of skill. It

allows students, parents and educators to better tailor math homework based on the level the student is at with the aims of improving at their own pace. Unrelated to Wahitis’ SIP, Perez talked about the Othello School District (OSD) Basketball Challenge being held Dec. 19 at the Othello High School gym. Community members are urged to attend and bring items for a canned food drive. Facilities report OSD Facilities Manager Mike Currie reported ongoing work to finish small issues at the newly built Wahitis Elementary School is going smoothly apart from the installation of eight new benches. Currie said they would be installed shortly after their estimated arrival in the next few weeks. Currie also told the board he has been pleased with the new building in terms of leftover issues now that the main building process has concluded. He posted “fix-it” sheets for staff to report issues they’ve seen and the few he and his crew have had to address have gone well. “Things look very good so I’m pleased with the facility,” Currie said. Progress with the new high school addition is ongoing with Currie reporting the external portion of the build should be finished in the middle of December. Roofing started the day of the meeting with the beginning of brick laying starting the week of Nov. 26 and window installation beginning the following week. Work on the new Alternative Learning Placement School (ALPS) is also underway and in its demolition phase, Currie said. Not much work on the externals of the building will be done in the winter months and Walker Construction – the company heading the project – estimates a completion date of March 2013.

Middle school sports Board member Garza, who is the liaison for the Washington Interscholastic Athletics Association, announced the idea of getting McFarland Middle School sports teams placed into another league to provide more games and competition for the athletes. His hopes are Moses Lake and other schools north of Othello would be able to play against Othello but won’t know for sure until this spring. Superintendent George Juarez said the board has made inquiries into this matter in the past, asking Yakima Valley leagues to add some games for Othello but never made much progress. Assistant Superintendent Mike Villarreal also stated different rules between leagues could complicate this process further. Student searches and school evaluations The board moved to approve Policy 3230 regarding student privacy and searches with a 3-0 vote in favor of adoption. As stated on the OSD website, students are subject to searches if a valid reason is found to do so by the superintendent or those authorized by the superintendent feel it should be done. The policy also states the intention of this policy is to promote and maintain order and discipline and protecting students from exposure to illegal drugs, weapons and contraband. The board also voted 3-0 in adopting the Danielson Instructional Framework and the Association of Washington School Principals Leadership Framework. The former policy serves as a guide to evaluate teachers and the progress they’ve made in their education while the latter framework is for the evaluation of school principals. Villarreal said both tools are deep and comprehensive in the ways they aid administrators in improving the quality of education in the OSD.

This story is all part of First Baptist Church’s holiday musical this year. “Dude, You Hear What I Hear?” will be performed Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. at the church, 705 E. Larch St. The show is free to attend and open to anyone. The musical is created by Steve Moore, Rob Howard and David Guthrie. There are 12 kids involved in the production this

year, all of them returning from previous shows. The church does a children’s musical each year at Christmas time. This year, they are teaching the kids a lesson while working on it. This is about pleasing parents and friends with the performance, but all the performance should be for God, co-director Chrissy Hernandez said. They are lead by a verse from Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” She will be co-directing with Leila Minard.

Reed, McKenna urge people to give wisely 

Secretary of State Sam Reed and Attorney General Rob McKenna urged Washingtonians recently to make wise choices with their holidays gifts to charity and avoid greedy fundraising groups. Reed and McKenna joined forces at the Senior Services Lillian Rice Center in downtown Seattle, releasing the 2012 Commercial Fundraiser Activity Report and announcing that the report will be updated weekly “in real time” to keep donors well-informed. The two statewide officials also shared tips for everyone – young and old – on how to give wisely. Overall this year, charities that used commercial fundraisers received an average of

46 percent of contributions, a drop from the 56 percent mark in the 2011 report and much lower than the 77 percent reported in 2010. Once again, the percentage that individual fundraisers retained was wideranging: Some fundraisers kept less than 10 percent and sent the remaining funds to charity, while other fundraisers’ fees and expenses were more than the amount raised. The report, compiled by the Office of Secretary of State’s Charities Program, spotlights recent financial information for commercial fundraisers who solicit or collect donations on behalf of their charity clients. The causes vary widely and include police, firefighter and veteran organizations,

medical research, animals, civil liberties and the environment to name a few. Seniors 65 and older – a group that makes up about 13 percent of Washington’s population – are especially targeted by solicitors and thus should be very careful and research where their donations are going, the two state officials cautioned. “I’ve been so impressed with the generosity of Washington residents over the years,” Reed said. “So many people here give money to help those who are struggling in our state or elsewhere. We know individuals will want to donate money this holiday season and beyond to help others, but we also know they can get burned

by not doing their homework before giving to a charity. It’s important for people to know where their money is going, he said. “We want contributors – regardless of age – to know which commercial fundraising groups have a bad track record when it comes to passing on donated money to the intended charities,” Reed said. Check out where money is being spent, McKenna said. “Those in the commercial fundraising business earn money by raising money,” he said. “People should always contact charitable organizations in your community and ask how they spend donations to ensure you are truly helping those you wish to help. Never

be afraid to ask how much of your donation will go to the charitable purpose. It’s your money.” The report, which has existed since 1995, has been revamped so it now is updated on a weekly basis. Consumers will be able to run their own reports in real time and get current registration information on commercial fundraisers, the state officials announced. “The public really will benefit from having access to fundraiser information that is up to date,” Reed said. “It will allow people to make even better decisions on where to give their hard-earned money.” Commercial fundraisers use many methods to solicit the

public, including the telephone and sending mailers asking them to give money to a cause. Commercial fundraisers, who are compensated for their efforts, take a cut of the donations before sending money to the charitable organization or charge a fee for their services. “People should remember that when someone asks you for a donation, there’s a chance it’s a third party getting paid to make that solicitation,” Reed said. “While most of these commercial fundraisers help keep many crucial charities afloat in Washington, some use a large portion of donations to pay for administrative costs and expenses – or to make a hefty profit.”

Senate Republicans choose Schoesler as leader Sen. Mark Schoesler is the new Senate Republican leader. The Ritzville lawmaker was unanimously elected to the top spot when the state’s 23 Republican senators met Wednesday in Olympia to choose their leadership team for the next two years. The post became vacant earlier this month when Sen. Mike Hewitt, of Walla Walla, opted against seeking another term as head of the Senate Republican Caucus. Schoesler has been on the Senate Republican leadership team, first as whip and more recently as floor leader, since 2006. His six terms in the House of Representatives and two terms in the Senate make Schoesler one of the longestserving members of the Legis-

lature in office and his election to a third Senate term earlier this month will make him the longest-serving legislator from Washington’s 9th Legislative District. “Naturally, I was pleased to receive the complete support and confidence of my colleagues,” Schoesler said, “It’s particularly gratifying to become leader at a time when Republican senators can expect an increased role in the governing process – in controlling state spending and making the sort of policy decisions we hope will encourage job growth and help Washington’s economy recover more quickly.” Schoesler raises wheat, canola and cattle on land in Adams and Lincoln counties.

“I like to remind people that as a farmer, I’m an eternal optimist,” he said. “I don’t want our legislative branch to be like the one in the ‘other Washington’ and that will be reflected in my approach as Senate Republican leader. Although I’m politically conservative, I also recognize that our first priority as a group is to govern and that often means meeting closer to the center.” While he has to think in statewide terms as Senate Republican leader, Schoesler said his new post won’t take the values, traditions and priorities of the 9th District out of him. “I’m still about responsible budgeting, higher education and agriculture, just as I was as a freshman state representa-

tive in 1992,” he said. “My focus will continue to be on the needs and views of the friends and neighbors who have entrusted me to represent them in Olympia.” Schoesler said he realizes many Capitol-watchers are wondering how the Senate will operate in 2013: Will it be the traditional majority-minority style or will a majority of the Senate’s 49 members opt for a leadership strategy more like the bipartisan-coalition approach that produced historic cost-saving reforms and a budget that received broad bipartisan support late in the 2012 session? “Regardless of how the Senate conducts business in 2013, I expect it will be more about policy and less about politics,”

Schoesler said. “The questions about partisanship and leadership style really ought to be directed to the House. Is it capable of saying ‘no’ to special interests and following the Senate’s move toward a more inclusive, centrist approach or will we continue to see the Senate produce good bipartisan bills only to have them smack against a partisan wall in the House?” Schoesler is a member of the Senate Ways and Means Committee and was part of the Senate Republican budget negotiating team in 2011 and 2012. Through his budget work he has become well-acquainted with Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, the outgoing Senate Ways and Means chairman who was chosen last week to serve as

Senate Democratic leader. “I like to think I have a good working relationship with Senator Murray and expect that will continue even though our respective titles have changed,” Schoesler said. “I also appreciate the overtures he’s made already about collaborating with Republicans and I will recommend that our new leadership team meet with its Democratic counterparts soon to discuss the upcoming session.” Committee assignments have yet to be made; however, Schoesler anticipates retaining his positions on the Senate Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Rules Committee. The 2013 legislative session begins Monday, Jan. 14, and lasts 105 days.

State’s presidential electors to meet Dec. 17 in Olympia

The 12 members of Washington’s Electoral College will gather in Olympia Dec. 17 to cast their votes for the Democratic ticket of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden. The state’s Electoral College will vote at noon in the State Reception Room of the Legislative Building. The event is expected to take 30 to 45 minutes. Secretary of State Sam Reed will convene the gathering and the electors’ chair will preside over the balloting. “The upcoming Electoral College vote is a key part of our nation’s presidential election process,” Reed said. “The first step was when voters in Washington and the rest of the nation had their voices heard in this November’s election. The next step is when our state’s Electoral College members cast their votes for president and vice president based on the majority of Washington voters.” Each state has a number of electors equal to the number of senators and representatives it has in the U.S. Congress. Of Washington’s 12 presidential electors, one is from each of the state’s 10 congressional districts. Those 10 were selected at congressional district caucuses last May. The two at-large electors were chosen at the state Democratic Party

convention in Seattle last June. The 12 electors submitted by the state Democratic Party are: District No. 1: Grifynn Clay, of Snohomish; District No. 2: Dave Gossett, of Mountlake Terrace; District No. 3: Kathleen Lawrence, of Vancouver; District No. 4: George Fearing, of Kennewick; District No. 5: Rick Lloyd, of Spokane Valley; District No. 6: Gail Kirk, of Tacoma; District No. 7: Maria Ehsan, of Seattle; District No. 8: Elizabeth Satiacum, of Olympia; District No. 9: Georgia Spencer, of Seattle; and District No. 10: Harvey Brooks, of University Place. At-large electors are Heather Fralick, of Shoreline, and Alec Stephens, of Seattle.

Dec. 17 is the date when electors meet in each of the states to cast votes for president and vice president. In all states but two (Maine and Nebraska), the winner of the popular vote in that state wins all of the electoral votes in that state. In Washington, state law requires the winning party’s electors to cast ballots for their ticket with a fine of $1,000 for being a “faithless” elec-

tor. This law was created after 1976 Electoral College member Mike Padden voted for Ronald Reagan even though Republican nominee Gerald Ford had secured Washington’s electoral votes in that year’s presidential election. After Washington’s electors sign the “Certificate of Vote” Dec. 17, the document will be mailed to Vice President Biden’s office and the U.S. Archivist. Jan. 6, Congress will convene in a joint session to count the votes cast by the Electoral College. Obama will be inaugurated as president Jan. 20 in a private swearingin ceremony. Because the 2013 presidential Inauguration Day falls on a Sunday, the public inauguration ceremony will take place Jan. 21. Obama defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney 50.9 percent to 47.4 percent in the nationwide popular vote Nov. 6. Obama is estimated to have amassed 332 electoral votes compared to Romney’s 206. Obama needed 270 electoral votes to win the presidential election. Obama gathered 56.16 percent of the vote in Washington, receiving 1,755,396 votes. Romney and running mate Paul Ryan pulled in 1,290,670 votes (41.29 percent).

Up to 60,000 to lose benefits at end of year Up to 60,000 people in Washington will be shut off of unemployment benefits when the federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation program ends Dec. 29. Since being activated in July 2008, the program has paid more than $5.6 billion in federally funded unemployment benefits to more than 407,000 jobless workers in this state, according to the state’s Employment Security Department. During much of the recession, most unemployed workers could qualify for up to 99 weeks of benefits, including 26 weeks of regular benefits,

53 weeks of emergency unemployment compensation (EUC) and 20 weeks of extended benefits – paid in that order. Due to the state’s improved unemployment rate, extended benefits shut off last April and congressional action has reduced EUC benefits to a maximum of 37 weeks. After Dec. 29, only regular benefits will be available for most Washington workers. Although Congress has extended the EUC program 10 times in the past four years, there’s currently no indication it will be reauthorized again. If Congress and the President

approve another extension, Employment Security will automatically notify anyone who claimed EUC during one or more weeks in December. Over the next few weeks, Employment Security will send emails, robocalls and direct mail to recipients reminding them the program is ending. The messages also will urge the workers to contact their local WorkSource office for assistance in finding work. WorkSource offers a variety of workshops, skill assessments, online courses, job counseling and other services aimed at helping job seekers find work.

Pages of time from The Othello Outlook

Ten years ago Dec. 12, 2002 Sunday, Dec. 15, the second annual community Christmas program and nativity exhibition will take place in the Othello High School gym. This year, the program will follow the story of the nativity. Come, listen and learn as a grandfather wood carver (Ivard Budge) teaches his grandson (Reuben Lopez) the lessons and importance of each piece of the nativity through song, powerpoint and theater all aimed at the family level. ***** The Community Christmas Basket Program organizers are making a list and checking it twice. It’s a responsibility Merritt Johnson and other organizers take to heart. John-

son said there is no flawless way to ensure all the baskets are delivered to families who truly need them. But after years of experience, the organizers have come up with a fairly reliable system. “When we first started, we would have people sign up for the baskets,” Johnson said. “The problem was there were some people who signed up and we knew they didn’t need them as much as other people.” Twenty years ago Dec. 9, 1992 Despite freezing temperatures, several hundred people crowded along First Avenue and Main Street Friday night to enjoy Othello’s first lighted Christmas parade, which organizer Sue Long plans to make

an annual event. The parade featured 23 entries, almost all of them inventively illuminated with colored lights. Among them were a lighted nativity from the Young Life Christian group, a Young Woman of the Year float with the court, a sleigh and lighthouse from the 1992 Othello Community Festivals float and the Othello High School band, whose members wore seasonal costumes. ***** Othello City Council members took strong stances on opposite sides of the 1993 budget before finally deciding to handle a $68,600 overrun by requiring council approval next year for all purchases over $5,000. The elected officials spent about an hour last Tuesday grappling over whether to

cut specific items from various budgets, particularly the public works and parks departments, before mayor Ted Muscott offered the “$5,000 rule” compromise. Thirty years ago Dec. 9, 1982 Six Othello homeowners have been decorating their homes in anticipation of the Hospital Auxiliary’s home tour, to be held this Saturday, Dec. 11. “Home of the Holidays” is the second home tour planned by the organization. Participants are Roger and Barbara Hartwig, Curtis and SueAnn Roberts, Shauna and Stephen Allen, John and Dorothy Magoteaux, J.W. and Beverly Boley and Gordon and Mary Hays.

***** All decked out in specially made Christmas stockings, four newborns were the first infants to leave Othello Community Hospital in December. They are mother Robin Pendleton and son Christopher, of Lind, Bonnie and son Timothy Valdez, of Othello, Debra and daughter Jamie Bird, of Mattawa, and Donna and daughter Jill Stoker, of Othello. Forty years ago Dec. 7, 1972 The story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will come to life this weekend when the Othello Theatre Guild presents its annual children’s play. The cast, led by Kathy Price as Snow White and Jean Muscott as the wick-

ed queen, includes dancing maidens, the dwarfs, a good witch, a handsome prince, a pair of cats and someone with the improbable name of Dandiprat Bombas. Bill Fields is the director. Sixty years ago Dec. 5, 1952 Othello’s airport underwent a tremendous improvement this last weekend as contractors in the area banded together to donate time, men and equipment for the leveling and repair of the landing field at the north side of town. At the present time, since the overhaul of the field, almost any kind of private aircraft can land on the strip. There are five private local planes at the field now.

This year, give the gift of college tuition Wondering what to do this year for that special grandchild, niece, nephew or cousin in your life? This year, consider giving the gift of education by contributing to a child’s GET account. GET is Washington’s 529 prepaid tuition plan, where your college savings account

is guaranteed by state law to keep pace with rising tuition, even if it doubles or triples in the future. GET offers flexible savings options, plus tax-free growth and withdrawals. Kids can use their GET account to attend colleges, universities and vocational schools anywhere in the country (and even

in other countries). If they decide not to attend college or receive a scholarship, parents can hold the account for up to 10 years, transfer the account to another child or request a refund And, unlike regular 529 savings plans, GET accounts are unaffected by the ups and downs of the stock market.

The cost of college is on the rise and the thought of what future tuition may be can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Saving as much and as early as possible is the key. Additionally, every little bit of help from family and friends certainly adds up. The promise of future tu-

ition is a special gift with lasting benefits. In fact, studies show children who know they have a college savings account in their name are seven times more likely to attend college. If a child already has a GET account, you can now make a one-time gift online or send in a check by mail. You’ll need

the child’s full name and GET account number. You can also download a certificate from the GET website to announce your gift. If you want to open a new account for a child, you can enroll online or mail in an enrollment form. More information is available at www.get.wa.gov/gift or by calling (800) 955-2318.

DAUGHTER’S HOLIDAY SOLO MAY BE HALTED BY COLD

Q: My daughter has a solo in the school Christmas program, but I’m afraid she’s this case? going to get sick and miss the performance due to the fact that half the kids in her Dr. Greg Smalley, executive director of marriage and family formation: In a day when class have colds. Would an immunity-boosting supplement help? divorce is rampant and reconciliation is rare, a story like yours is amazing. And so, yes,

Jim: Most of us have seen people at the office downing vitamins, zinc, ginseng and other concoctions in an effort to fight off a cold. I turned to my friends on Focus on the Family’s Physicians Resource Council for input on this question, and they agreed that trying to boost one’s immune system is largely ineffective against colds. The runny nose and other symptoms we experience with a cold are not caused by the virus, but by its host. Our bodies naturally produce a number of chemicals to fight a cold, and those chemicals are what cause the headaches, the drippy nose and other unpleasant effects. According to Jennifer Ackerman in her book “Ah-Choo!: The Uncommon Life of Your Common Cold” (Twelve, 2010), a runny nose and sinus headache are not signs of a weakened immune system. Rather, they’re evidence that your immune system is already putting up a good fight. Trying to strengthen it with an over-the-counter concoction probably won’t work. Immunity-boosting products could actually aggravate your symptoms. The old adage is true: There’s no cure for the common cold. The best advice for your daughter would probably be to wash her hands regularly, drink plenty of liquids and get lots of rest. Here’s hoping that she’ll be happy and healthy for her Christmas solo!

we do think that remarriage is a good idea -- provided you can avoid the problems that led to your divorce in the first place. You say your ex-husband has “turned his life around,” which suggests that the divorce was primarily the result of his bad behavior. It’s wonderful to hear that his attitudes have been transformed, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t proceed with caution. Change can be a slow process. In light of your history, it’s important to make sure that you’ve seen concrete evidence of your husband’s changed heart over time before you jump back into marriage. Don’t set a timeline for moving forward until you’re sufficiently reassured on this point. Also, take a look at your own heart and motivations, and consider the role you may have played, however small, in the divorce. Have you sufficiently dealt with those issues? In addition, if you have children, they’ve already been impacted by your divorce, and you certainly don’t want to make matters worse by remarrying and then splitting up again if things don’t work out. What you need most right now is the help and guidance of an experienced marriage counselor. He or she can help you both fully explore whether you’re ready for remarriage Q: My ex-husband and I divorced several years ago. Since that time, he has turned and help you determine the best course of action. Try to find a counselor who is familiar his life around. As a result, we’ve been dating again and I have a feeling he’s going with a relationship tool called “Prepare and Enrich.” This test will help you and your to “pop the question” on New Year’s Eve.

Big weekend for wrestlers with wins both days By Erik PaguE SPortS@othEllooutlook.com The Huskies came out on top once again at the 2012 Leonard Schutte Invitational held Saturday, Dec. 8, outscoring their closest opponent by 33.5 points and winning titles from five different wrestlers. The day before, Othello hosted a dual match at home, defeating Prosser 50-32 but losing a non-league matchup against the Stanwood Spartans 44-32. This was the 17th annual Invitational held at Othello High School and head coach Ruben Martinez’s squad kept up with their winning tradition set by the Schutte family. Twelve of Othello’s wrestlers reached the semifinals while earning titles from Isaiah Barrera (106), Lucas Garza (132), Eric Garza (160) and Bubba Ruiz (285). Alec Espinoza, a junior varsity wrestler, also earned first place in the 126-pound weight class. The Huskies had 26 wrestlers competing Saturday and almost half of them made it to the semis, scoring a big chunk of team points leading to their victory. Head coach Ruben Martinez is happy with the way his guys were able to spread the success around during the long day. “Anytime you get 12 into the semifinal round, that gets a lot of team points,” Martinez said. L. Garza, last year’s fourth-place finisher at 132 in state finals, swept his three matches with falls over Kamiakin, Southridge and Stanwood wrestlers on his way to his title Saturday. Coach Martinez was impressed by the senior’s performance over the weekend, including his two victories in the dual Friday. Photo By Erik PaguE “Lucas is on a roll right now.

Othello struggled with their inside defense, allowing Connell’s 6-foot-1 forward Ashley Thompson to pick up 14 rebounds and three blocks in their win. Junior forward Holly Fleshman led the Huskies in scoring with six points, followed by senior point guard Kimberly Bullis with five. Connell made things tougher for Othello by picking off passes and by controlling the boards. At one point, the Eagles earned five offensive rebounds in a row.

Senior Eric Garza sizes up his opponent during the Dec. 7 dual against Stanwood.

to do what he wants to do and that’s to get in the finals.” Another weight class that saw Othello leave its mark was at 126. Senior AJ Garza won both of his matches Friday while Espinoza, a junior, swept his three matches at the tournament the following day to win the title. While Espinoza is a member of the Huskie’s Dawg Squad (JV), Martinez saw an especially strong performance from him. “He ended up winning the tournament so that was a big plus,” Martinez said. Another Garza, Eric, had a strong weekend, as well, winning 4-5 of his matches only falling to Stanwood’s Zach Schut Friday during the nonleague dual. He went on to defeat Schut Saturday on his way to the 160-pound title. Isaiah Barrera, who participated in last year’s state tournament, won the title with two falls and a 4-0 decision over Eli Sikes, of Chiawana. Martinez said Sikes was a tough opponent and gave Barrera a good challenge. “He wrestled real well, wrestled a tough kid from Chiawana in the finals who hadn’t lost,” Martinez said. “He ended up beating him pretty handily.” Rounding out the Othello title

winners is big guy Bubba Ruiz. The junior won all of his matches in the heavyweight class Saturday, capping off his day with a 4-3 victory in overtime against West Valley’s Colton Gurney. All in all, the weekend showed Martinez the Huskies are hungry for success and he felt this year’s tournament was one of the best they’ve had. Having 28 total pins in this tournament is a big accomplishment for Othello in the coach’s opinion. “That was one of the better finals we’ve had as a team so that was kind of nice,” Martinez said. “And hopefully, we can feed off that and use that to our advantage.” The next big event on the Huskies’ schedule is Saturday’s Mat Classic at the Yakima Valley SunDome. Tuesday, Othello traveled to West Valley for a dual but results weren’t available as of press time. Tonight, the Huskies host Ephrata for a dual starting at 7 p.m. Another busy week for the Huskies wrestlers, but Martinez is happy about the way his team has started their early season successfully. “So we’re going to take it one week at a time,” Martinez said. “We know where to go with our team by the end of the year, but we still have to accomplish some things weekly.”

Huskies drop first league game at Toppenish The Huskies basketball squad took another road trip to Toppenish, Saturday, Dec. 8, losing their first CWAC game 60-33 against the Wildcats. Coach Herrud said Toppenish’s use of the full court press and missed scoring opportunities led to the Huskies’ defeat. Othello was only able to hit 15 of 45 field goals in the game, shooting at 33 percent on the night. Free throw shooting was down, as well, with the Huskies only hitting 4 of 11 from the line. Herrud said missed opportunities like these were the main reason they lost. “Our problem was missing easy shots and breaking the press,” Herrud said. “They got a lot of easy baskets off steals.” The Wildcats’ defense kept Othello guessing for the first part of the game and Herrud said it’s hard to practice those types of situations. “We just couldn’t handle it,” Herrud said about their press play. “It’s tough to simulate that in practice. We work on press break everyday, but we had a rough time

breaking the press.” Despite their preparation, Herrud said the guys panicked and got some passes broken up leading to turnovers. Things in the second half started to look a bit better for the Huskies, but they weren’t able to ever catch up or change leads with Toppenish. Herrud said they had more success breaking the press, but those missed scoring opportunities continued to hold the Huskies back. “We looked actually pretty good in the second half,” Herrud said. Following the Connell game, Herrud wanted to see some of his veterans step up and seniors Trevor Walker and Derek Cantu showed some improvement. Cantu earned 10 points while Walker produced nine. Herrud said the Huskies would be heading in the right direction if they continue to make progress and remain consistent scoring. “I feel like we’ve made some improvement from our jamboree and Connell,” Herrud said. With a few adjustments to the defense, combined with the improving offense, Herrud thinks the Huskies can find success – as long as they don’t panic and give the ball away. “(The) press break will work if the kids just settle down and we work as a team to break the press,” Herrud said. “If we try to do it individually, we’ll lose it every time and that’s kind of what happened.” The Huskies took on Wapato Tuesday night at home, but results weren’t available in time. Wapato, coming off a big 88-64 win over Selah, was undefeated before the Dec. 11 matchup with Othello. Tomorrow night, Othello takes on Grandview at home and then Photo by Erik PaguE travels to East Valley Saturday. Both games are set for 7:30 p.m. Senior Trevor Salsbury pulls up for a 3-point attempt against Connell Tuesday, Dec. 4. He scored 19 points on the night. tipoffs.

Connell had already played two games before the Huskies played their first full game there. “It’s really tough to teach kids how to play aggressive defense without fouling in two weeks,” Herrud said. Othello only took 12 trips to the free throw line while Connell scored 17 points off their 27 free throw attempts. “If we could have held them without fouling and come down and hit a couple of shots … it could have changed it,” Herrud said. Herrud believes the team is on the right track. With a little more time to practice their game, his team can continue to progress. “I feel really good about what we’re doing,” Herrud said.

Meet the huskies

week’s jamboree, but their lack of game time experience contributed to their loss. “I think as far as effort, I think we worked harder than they did,” Herrud said. “Were we doing all the right things? No.” Salsbury was one of the players who showed some of the effort Herrud praised. He went 4-8 on three point shots and finished with 19 points on the night – a little over half of Othello’s total offensive output. Herrud hopes his teammates will work to match his production in future games. “I know it’s early in the season, but we need a couple of good athletes we have on the team to step up and start scoring a little bit more,” Herrud said. “I think later on in the season we’ll see that.” In the second and third quarters, Othello’s offensive production took a nosedive, scoring only five points in each. Herrud knows this isn’t something his team can get used to. “That just killed us,” Herrud said. Although the Huskies narrowly won the turnover battle, by the time the fourth quarter started, Othello faced a 16-point deficit. Foul trouble and some key defensive plays provided Connell with opportunities to keep the Huskies out of the game. The Eagles’ inside play, aided by 6-foot-7 center Gage Taylor who scored 11 points and earned nine blocks, continued to give Othello trouble. “They had a double screen down low and they got a lot of easy shots inside,” Herrud said. “We just need to make some adjustments and do some other stuff to make sure we’re ready for that.” As for the foul trouble, Herrud liked how his guys were aggressive on D, but stressed it’s difficult to find balance and not run into foul trouble, especially since Othello has had less time to prepare than other teams in the area.

are up, we still have high expectations and we’re going to continue to work hard.” Woods looked at their first road trip as a learning experience and identified some of those issues the Huskies will need to address down the road. Othello learned they have to keep out of foul trouble and will want to improve their ability to box-out and secure rebounds to give them chances to get possession. “We cannot continue to just stand in the paint,” Woods said. “We’ve got to go get it.” Bullis was one of the players who ran into foul trouble and Woods knows it’s important for her to be on the court as much as possible in the future. “If Kimberly Bullis gets into foul trouble, we could have a tough time on our hands,” Woods said about the team leader. Woods also saw some things he was happy about, including the fact a lot of the younger players got some experience against a tough team. Also, after winning their jamboree games last week, the coach saw the team play with more confidence. “Last year at this time of year, we were scared to shoot the ball,” Woods said. “We’re willing to shoot the ball … but the fact that we’re willing to put it up there and give ourselves a chance is great.” Even with the tough loss, they played all 32 minutes despite knowing their chances of winning were pretty slim and Woods is proud of the way the Huskies kept their cool. “I didn’t feel the girls quit, which is something that we kind of pride ourselves on,” Woods said. “If teams are going to beat us they’re going to beat us, but we’re not going to just roll over and let it happen. They’re going to have to work.” Wildcats pounce on Othello girls The Huskies fell to 0-2 on the season, falling to Toppenish in their first CWAC game by a score of 66-28. Once again, some of Othello’s key players ran into foul trouble early, hampering their ability to hold the Wildcats at bay in the away game.

Senior point guard Kimberly Bullis and junior Holly Fleshman got three fouls a piece in the first quarter, while senior Stephanie Tolley got dinged with two in the same time frame. Toppenish took advantage, using their speed to outscore the Huskies with the fast break. “We were expecting them to shoot lots of three-pointers, but more so, it was about them just racing up the court and beating us back,” head coach Clyde Woods said. “They’d be on the fast break and on the back side, they would just take off and we’d lose them. They got some easy buckets.” Toppenish also came out with a full court press, which Woods thought the Huskies handled effectively, but, as time went on, the strategy pushed Othello out of their rhythm and game plan. “At the beginning of the game, they were pressing us,” Woods said. “I thought we handled the press fairly well, but then once we started to get rattled, we kind of started to get away from our plan of attack.” Toppenish didn’t have size but used their speed and tenacity to force the Huskies into difficult situations. “We found ourselves getting trapped on the sidelines, dribbling down into the corners, things of that nature,” Woods said. “They’re pretty small, but they like to swarm and they’re feisty so that didn’t help our situation much.” One way Woods and the Huskies hope to prevent those situations is to become a more mobile threat. At Toppenish, Woods said the Huskies ended up in their foul trouble because they ended up over-pursuing their opponents when they got beat down court. On offense, Othello was able to score a few more points than their previous game against Connell, but Woods sees a need to continue building on their efforts to become more efficient scorers. He’s working with a team that’s demonstrated it has what it takes to score but needs to continue to work on their offensive abilities. “We ran some things, we got organized but we just need to do it more. We need to be more

consistent with things we’re trying to do,” Woods said. One positive for the Huskies is younger players were able to go out and earn minutes at the varsity level. Woods knows a big part of success is having a deep bench that can step up when needed in times like Friday’s game where Othello ran into foul trouble.

Othello took on Wapato Tuesday at home, but results weren’t available as of press time. The Huskies will take on Grandview in another home game Friday with tipoff at 5:45 p.m. then take off for a matchup in East Valley the following night.

pay off down the road. “I don’t care about wins and losses this year,” Martinez said. “(I want them) getting those tough matches and getting them ready for that state tournament. I know they’re going to be there, we need to apply ourselves more and get ourselves the tough matches and get us ready for the postseason.” Time will tell if their longterm strategy will help. As a team, Othello finished fourth in Saturday’s tournament. Martinez felt they could have done better, but sacrifices like this have to be made when playing the long game. Besides the wrestlers mentioned above, three others finished in top spots. Senior Maribel Rodriguez took second at 235 – narrowly missing a first-place finish that went to

Warden state placer Andrea Contreras, Phelicia Perez finished third at 137 and freshman Abigail Cantu took third at 125. Freshman teammate Heather Fitting finished fourth at 145 rounding out a strong underclassman performance that left Martinez feeling good about their prospects this season. “I was very proud of the new girls,” Martinez said. “Some of these new girls had their first day on the mats so I was very proud of how they came out and wrestled.” Perez went 4-2 on the day and fell to Warden’s state placer Miexy Gonzalez in the semifinals. Sparks went on to beat her, but Martinez was glad to see Perez put in a strong effort tying into his strategy to have his team take on tougher opponents.

“For her to wrestle tough matches against state placers … is a huge stepping stone for her,” Martinez said. Junior Tori Zambrano also finished in fourth going 4-2 in the 106 bracket. In the end, things didn’t go perfectly for the Huskies, but Martinez still feels good about the direction the team is headed in at this point in the season. The weekend’s action showed a few areas they’ll want to work on and he thinks if they do so, they’ll “be fine.” “I want to make sure these girls are to their best and fully confident,” Martinez said. “They can succeed in the postseason. Not just get to that state tournament but bring back some state hardware, as well.”

Safe toys and gifts month: Safeguard your children’s eyes BY FAY COATS CBHA It likely doesn’t come as a surprise that December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month. “Each year, Prevent Blindness America encourages people to make toy safety a priority as they do their holiday shopping,” Dr. Christopher Pellejera, optometrist, and Columbia Basin Health Association’s EyeCare director, said. The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated more than 80,000 children under 15 years of age were treated in hospital emergency rooms in 2010. Lacerations, abrasions and contusions made up most of these injuries. “Many of these injuries can result in permanent, serious eye injuries,” Pellejera said. “It

that have pieces that shoot or fly off. Remember that BB guns and air guns are not really toys. The American Academy of Pediatrics also provides tips for choosing safe toys and especially urges parents to be on guard for toys with small magnets that can lead to serious medical problems if swallowed. An additional hazard is lead paint that is used on many imported toys, as well as on metals used to make children’s jewelry. “We want everyone to have a wonderful – injury free – holiday,” Pellejera said. “Christmas is a magical time for children and by following a few safety tips, we can make them happy while keeping them safe.”

is important to note that up to 90 percent of all eye injuries can be prevented.” Pellejera suggests you make recommendations to family members and friends about gifts you feel are appropriate for your children. In addition, you should inspect these gifts before allowing your children to play with them. Pellejera also recommends that children’s safety be the main consideration when buying gifts for children. He encourages everyone to adopt the following Prevent Blindness America’s Safe Toys Buying Tips: Buy age appropriate toys. Look for toys and other gifts that meet American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. Review warnings on the toy’s box. Avoid shooting toys and toys

Flu arrives early in Washington The Grant County Health District warns residents that the flu season has arrived early in Washington state and across the nation. According to CDC, this year’s flu season may be one of the worst in years. Grant County Health Officer Dr. Alexander Brzezny wants residents to know that Grant County healthcare providers are reporting an increase in the number of patients being seen for flu-like symptoms. With holiday travel quickly approaching, the Health District urges all residents 6 months and older to get their

Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu and have respiratory symptoms without a fever or no symptoms at all. If you’re sick with flu-like sickness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, (without the use of a fever-reducing medicine), unless you need to leave to receive medical care or for other necessities.

flu shot as soon as possible. Currently, there is no shortage of flu vaccine and it is widely available through clinics, pharmacies and at the Moses Lake Health District office. While it’s early in the flu season, so far, the flu vaccine and the flu viruses seen in the nation are well-matched. The flu vaccine is the most effective way to prevent the flu and right now is the time to be vaccinated. Flu-like symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Balancing what kids want with what’s safe for them to have is key.

Cold sore relief is on its way Tingling. Itchiness around the mouth. Tightness and soreness. If you’re a cold sore sufferer, these are symptoms with which you are all too familiar. These feelings mean a cold sore is on its way. And, if you’re part of the 40 percent of people who suffer from cold sores, you know you have to start treatment right away. It’s never too soon to say ‘see you later’ to that pesky friend. Cold sores, which are caused by a virus, can be brought on by many factors, including stress, fatigue and exposure to sun, wind or cold. With so many triggers, it may be difficult to understand when or why you’re getting cold sores. As such, it may be a good idea to keep a log of what you were doing, how you were feeling and what happened in your life just before an outbreak occurred. You may just find a pattern that can help monitor flare-ups.

Beyond monitoring the breakouts, try treating cold sores with Orajel(tm) Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment. With this revolutionary product, healing begins with one dose. The patented formula numbs the affected area for instant pain relief and the one-time use TouchFree applicator is convenient and easy to use. Typically, cold sores last eight to 10 days. During this time, remember to avoid skin-toskin contact with others and keep your hands off the sore. By doing this, in combination with caring for the sore, you will have relief in no time. Then, you can wave ‘goodbye’ to cold sore pain. Learn more about cold sores and their treatment, and get a coupon, at www.OrajelSingleDose.com.

lin County jail on an unrelated charge. He is scheduled for release Dec. 9 and will be taken into custody by Grant County detectives on the kidnapping and murder charges. Fullbright’s body was found around midday Oct. 17 near county roads 10-Northeast and L-Northeast about eight miles north of Moses Lake. He was bound, gagged and shot several times. According to witnesses, while at Rodriguez’s Robin Lane home earlier that day, Rodriguez accused Fullbright of inappropriately touching his young daughter. Rodriguez allegedly punched Fullbright, then bound and gagged him before putting him in the trunk of a car. Fullbright was driven to the Road L site and shot. Rodriguez and Fullbright are allegedly Norteño gang members. The investigation continues.

WASHINGTON DRIVERS HAVE ATTITUDES , KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS Three quarters of surveyed Washington drivers thought they were likely to get a ticket for going 68 mph on a freeway posted for 60 m.p.h. Over 90 percent thought they were likely to get arrested if they drove drunk. A third of drivers age 18 to 24 said they sent or received a text message or email while driving. These findings

are in a report released today by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC). Beginning in 2010, states are to survey residents annually on their opinions about driving and their awareness of enforcement campaigns. The 2011 Washington Driver Survey Report is available on the WTSC website. The basic set of survey questions on self-reported seat belt use, impaired driving and speeding was designed and tested at the national level. Washington state added a question on driver cell phone use. Survey results are used by WTSC to track trends and evaluate the effectiveness of programs, particularly with drivers involved in fatal crashes. “Evaluating drivers’ attitudes and awareness is very important to us,” Darrin Grondel, director of the WTSC, said. “This information shows us the best ways we can reach our goals in Target Zero.” Target Zero is Washington state’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan with a vision of zero traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, who funds the survey, can use core outcome and behavior measures as part of its reporting to Congress and the public.
