Winter Driving Safety Tips The window for fall driving is drawing to a rapid close, but our vehicles are still in for a long cold and rainy season. Commutes, family gatherings, traffic jams while holiday shopping remind us that drivers should make preparations to ensure they are not left out in the cold. Please review this important list now while you are safe and warm:  INSPECT VEHICLE TIRES. Both tread and proper inflation are important. Follow manufacturer’s inflation recommendations.  Take a walk around your car, CHECK TO MAKE SURE ALL LIGHTS ARE FUNCTIONING, especially headlights and brake lights.  INSPECT WINDSHIELD WIPERS both front and rear (if applicable). Warning signs include streaking or skipping.  Under the hood, INSPECT BELTS AND HOSES for dryness and cracking.  CHECK YOUR CAR BATTERY. They can lose half of their cranking power in extremely cold temperatures. Inspect your battery connections and test the strength of your battery.  Fluids are under stress in these extreme conditions; CHECK FLUID LEVELS of motor oil, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid.

Many major auto shops offer free inspections of these critical functions. Take advantage of these offers and comparison shop because prices do vary widely. Preventative maintenance now will go a long way to make this winter season a happy memory. Next month we will provide tips on what to stock in the trunk should your car break down.

Hunger and Homlessness Awareness Week 2013

Friday, November 22nd 3-6pm in AUC CK A Community Action Poverty Simulation is a facilitated role play that allows 50-80 assume the role of a low income family member living on a limited budget. Although it uses play money and fictional scenarios, a poverty simulation is a role play – not a game. It is a powerful experience that takes only three hours of time, but makes a lasting impact. It builds a greater awareness of the issues facing people in poverty, and helps build a foundation for change – personally, professionally and in our communities. Facilitated by the Washington State University Extension
