else for the holidays, it’s probably best to think twice because, unlike that whiz-bang techno-toy you’ve got your eye on, you have more to think about than what to do when the warranty runs out. Pets are not inanimate objects -- they are members of the family. It is essential that the new pet and potential owner form a strong relationship with each other from the start. If you are thinking of a pet as a Christmas gift for someone else –

P.A.W.S. Humane Center offers gift certificates that may be purchased and presented to your loved one. That way, the new pet owner can take his or her time after the holidays to research breed, energy level and age to see what pet would best fit their lifestyle. Informative books to go along with the gift certificate, as well as a “hope chest” of pet needs would round out the gift. For many of us, the companionship of a pet is one of life’s great pleasures.

Real tree tips

Many people harbor strong opinions with regard to which type of Christmas tree they want to purchase. Some cannot live without a natural, freshly-cut Christmas tree, while others prefer the convenience of artificial trees. Those who insist on a natural tree might want to consider the following tips when buying what’s likely their biggest decorative item of the holiday season. Ask when the tree was cut down. Precut trees may be cut down weeks before they’re sold. So if you’re buying a precut tree, chances are the tree was cut down much earlier than you think. This doesn’t mean the tree won’t make it through the holiday season, but a tree that was cut several weeks ago should have some of its bottom trunk removed before it’s placed in the

stand. This will make it easier for the tree to consume water. This step likely isn’t necessary if the tree was cut down the same day you bring it home. Have the tree shaken before taking it home. A tree should be shaken in a shaker before you put it in your car and bring it home. A shaker removes any debris or dead needles from the tree, which can save you the trouble of cleaning up all of those dead needles from your living room floor later on. Have the tree wrapped before taking it home. A tree should also be wrapped in twine before taking it home. The twine should be tight enough to keep the tree’s branches from blowing in the wind when you attach the tree to the top of your vehicle. If possible, keep the tree wrapped in twine as you place it in the stand. This makes the tree easier to control. See TREE, Page 11

Safety should be a tradition, too

Celebrants and shoppers annually spend billions of dollars during the holiday season. With so much money exchanging hands, it is imperative for shoppers and revelers to use caution to avoid incidents that can put a damper on such a festive time of year. Though many people who look forward to the holiday season for all the right reasons, there are some who see this time of year as a prime opportunity to prey on the generosity or distraction Christmas brings. Thieves know that the holidays can be hectic, and they use this to their advantage, knowing full well people tend to store highpriced items in their homes during this time of the year. Heeding certain safety tips during the holidays can help keep you and your loved ones safe.

thief from targeting your home. When you venture out to shop, do so at different times so you’re not establishing a recognizable pattern that gives a thief a sense of security and a perfect window of time to break in.

Triple-check your home

Security experts warn that most burglaries occur during daytime hours when homes are empty. The main point of entry is on the ground floor via a rear or a side door. Access through a garage door is another common way thieves gain access to a home. Before leaving the house, make sure that all doors and windows are locked and that the garage door cannot be opened. Many times thieves are able to simply enter a home through an unlocked window. The key is to make it as difficult as possible for a burglar to get inside your home.

In downtown Aurora, Miracle on Main kicks off with a Christmas Tree Lighting and lighted Christmas Parade at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25. The parade has a religious theme, but Santa participates as well. Various activities continue every weekend thereafter, many based at the Aurora Lions Club Building, Second and Main streets, where a complete Dickens village awaits visitors. Several events are sponsored by Aurora Public Library District, as are some activities in Lawrenceburg and Logan by the Lawenceburg Public Library District. Christmas Books and Cookies will be offered at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at both the Aurora and Dillsboro libraries. The follow day, Sunday, Dec. 2, live reindeer will visit the Aurora Lions Club Building, where children and adults can pet and learn about them. Astronomy movies, two per hour, will be featured

Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Aurora library between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m, and a Christmas Treats program will be there Thursday, Dec. 13. The always-popular Theatre IV will offer Santa’s Enchanted Workshop at 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at St. John’s School, Third and Mechanic streets. And the Reindeer Reserve will bring back the live reindeer Sunday afternoon, Dec. 16, again at the Aurora Lions Club Building. At Lawrenceburg Public Library, December activities kick off with Winter Wonderland from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. The wonders begin with The Friends Great Cookie Sale at 10 a.m., accompanied by a holiday harp concert. At 11 a.m., the “one-and-only” Leonardo performs his high energy, live music concert with a holiday twist, and at noon, Santa stops by for a visit.

SAFETY, From Page 7

Many times shoppers visit the car frequently during shopping excursions and store gifts in the trunk, only to return for more shopping. Thieves recognize there may be a bounty of merchandise inside. First and foremost, all items in the car should be stored out of sight to deter interest in your vehicle. Secondly, make sure that the car is locked and that the security system (if there is one) is engaged, as merchandise in a car is not often covered by standard auto insurance policies. In addition, park as close as you can to the store entrance or beneath a bright light. Poor visibility encourages thieves.

Watch your wallet

Cash is a very attractive prospect for thieves because it is largely untraceable and easily spent. While shoppers who want to curb high credit card bills might favor cash, it is important not to carry too much around. Spread out purchases over a few days so that you do not

have to carry large quantities of cash. When using an ATM at the mall or at the bank, always be aware of your surroundings, including fellow customers. It may be worth paying multiple service fees to withdraw small amounts of cash rather than withdrawing a large amount of money that thieves can target. Remove extraneous credit cards when shopping. Should your wallet be stolen or go missing, this will eliminate the number of accounts that thieves can use and also cuts down on the number of accounts that need to be closed out. You should never carry your social security card in your wallet because this increases your risk of being victimized by identity theft.

Request to sign for packages

Many shipping carriers have eliminated the need for package recipients to sign for merchandise. Recipients can now choose to have boxes and bags left outside the front door. To decrease the risk of theft, always choose to sign for packages, regardless of how safe your neighborhood may be.

Donna Jo Tucker performs, then Casey’s Outdoor Solutions will demonstrate wreath making. One lucky person will win the wreath.

TREE, From Page 6

Choose the right location. When looking for the right place to set up your natural tree, it’s best to choose a spot that’s cool and free of drafts. The tree should not be placed near heat sources, including appliances, fireplaces or vents, because such heat sources create a safety hazard and can make it difficult for the tree to retain moisture. There should also be ample space between the top of the tree and the ceiling. Place some covering on the ground beneath the tree. Even a freshly cut natural tree will shed needles over the course of the holiday season. Before placing the stand in the location you’ve chosen, put

some type of covering, such as a tree bag, beneath the stand so it’s easier to gather all those needles once the holiday season has ended. Remember that natural trees are thirsty. Men and women who have never had a natural Christmas tree in the past might be surprised at just how thirsty natural trees get. The stand’s reservoir should have lots of water, which should never dip below the stump. If the water dips below the stump, you might be forced to cut a little more off the bottom of the trunk to ensure the tree will make it through the holiday season. That can be a hassle once the tree has been decorated, so be sure to check the water in the reservoir at least once per day to maintain adequate water levels.
