“Many of our local brokers do not realize that Real Estate Weekly was started by Realtors for the benefit of Realtors so that we could have our own publication to turn to for our advertising needs. Because of Real Estate Weekly, we have been able to brand ourselves with local buyers and sellers and, at the same time, get our listings in front of the buying public with beautiful color photos of the homes we have for sale. In addition, Real Estate Weekly helps us hit all the popular websites with our listings to make sure buyers across the country see our listings as well. We feel every advertising dollar in the REW is well spent.” — Pat and Donna Asheville's Dream Team Keller Williams Professionals

Will your family eat healthier snacks?

(StatePoint) With so much junk food available on store shelves these days, it’s important to take a step back from timeto-time and evaluate what you feed your family. Snack time in particular is when a lot great parents serve up some not-sogreat offerings. Here are a few ways to make sure you’re providing your family with some crucial vitamins and minerals during snack time: Vitamin C Vitamin C is important for strengthening immunity. Whenever kids gather in large groups, such as in the classroom, at afterschool, activities, or on the monkey bars, germs have a tendency to travel. But a

regular dose of vitamin C can help keep kids cold and flu-free. With that in mind, hydrate kids with orange juice or lemonade instead of soda. For snacks, try kiwi, citrus fruits and slices of bell pepper. Calcium It’s almost impossible to cut out all sweets and treats, particularly when kids are involved! So rather than saying “no” to something delicious, ensure the sweet treats you serve your family offer some nutritional benefit. Protein Protein is tricky because there are so

many foods that contain a good dosage of protein, but aren’t necessarily the most healthful options. Limit sources of protein that are high in saturated fats, which can raise cholesterol and contribute to obesity. Instead, opt for healthful snacks like unsalted nuts and seeds. A trail mix is a satisfying way to up your kids’ protein intake, and is a great on-the-go option. Ensuring kids’ snacks are nutritionally beneficial is a great first step you can take to ensure they’re getting the vitamins and nutrients they need each day.

(StatePoint) During cold and flu season, an ounce of prevention goes a long way. But despite best efforts, getting sick is sometimes unavoidable. This year, Americans will suffer from approximately one billion colds, and as many as one in five will get the flu. Many people turn to over-the-counter medicines (OTC) for relief from their cold and flu symptoms. When illness strikes, treating your symptoms safely and responsibly is just as important as relief. During this cold and flu season, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the maker of Tylenol, is educating consumers about the safe and appropriate use of medicines through its educational initiative “Get Relief Responsibly.” Many cold and flu medicines contain acetaminophen, a common pain reliever used to provide relief from their cold and flu symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and body pains.

Got a cold or flu? You need to read this

Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol but it can also be found in more than 600 OTC and prescription medications such as NyQuil, Theraflu, Percocet and Vicodin. If you take multiple medicines at a time to treat various symptoms, it is important to be aware of the ingredients and to follow labels to prevent accidentally taking more than the recommended dose. “Acetaminophen is safe when used as directed, but taking too much can harm your liver,” says Edwin Kuffner, M.D., Vice President of Medical Affairs at McNeil Consumer Healthcare. “Some people may accidentally take more than the total daily dose of acetaminophen because they do not realize they are taking multiple products containing aceta-

minophen, or because they may not read and follow the label.” This cold and flu season, get relief responsibly with these tips from McNeil Consumer Healthcare: • Always read and follow your medicine labels carefully. If you’re taking more than one medicine, read and compare the labels. • Never take more than one medicine that contains the same active ingredient at the same time. • Never take more than the recommended dose, unless directed by your doctor. And don’t take any medicine for longer than directed.

Smart tips for your tax refund (StatePoint) If you’re fortunate enough to receive a refund this tax season, it’s time to think about sensible uses for the extra income so, as Grandpa used to say, “it doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.” The smartest thing to do with a little extra money, say experts, is to use it in a way that benefits your budget, generates extra income or helps you achieve financial peace of mind. This can be accomplished in several ways, including putting the money into a savings account with a competitive interest rate, investing in energy saving improvements for your home, or paying down debt. Or, if these options don’t move you, consider donating your refund to a charity of your choice. “There’s an old saying that money can’t buy happiness, and while this may be true, our research shows that saving money can impact our sense of well-

being,” says Diane Morais, Ally Bank deposits and line of business integration executive. In fact, among those with a savings account, 38 percent of respondents surveyed report feeling extremely, or very happy, versus 29 percent of those without one, according to a recent survey. Beyond a savings account, another smart move is to make a deductible IRA contribution. Not only will you earn interest, your contribution may be eligible for a tax deduction. Depending on the size of the refund, you may need to find a bank that has no minimum deposit requirement or monthly maintenance fees that can quickly eat away at your principal. While few people will regret saving money, another wallet-friendly option is to invest your tax refund into money-saving projects, such as energy efficient home improvements. In addition to help-

ing reduce utility costs, you may qualify for a tax credit, called the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit, on such projects as solar power and wind turbine upgrades. More information can be found at www.Energy.gov. Also, consider paying off credit card debt to save on the interest expense and improve your credit score to help you obtain better terms for big ticket items like a car or a home. And finally, you may also want to consider making a donation to a charitable cause, which in some instances may reduce your tax liability. Always check with a tax professional if this is a concern. Regardless of how you spend your refund, remember that it’s your hardearned money, not a windfall -- so be sure to use it wisely.
