Preparing for a scare Kayla Bersztaitis, a zipline instructor at Hall Township’s Echo Bluff Park, draws a cardboard scarecrow prop for the upcoming Fright Night at the park. Echo Bluff will put on its spooky “Trail of Terror” for adults and a “Pumpkin Patch Trail” for kids and those who don’t wish to be too scared. The fun will be from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Oct. 25 and from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Oct. 26. A bonfire, crafts and concession stand will also be available for the whole family to enjoy. Admission is $5 per person; free for kids aged 7 and under. There will also be a ghosts vs. zombies paintball attack, where participants will have the chance to shoot paintballs at zombies and ghosts. Participants will pay $5 for this event. For those interested in volunteering or those who are looking to get volunteer service hours, Echo Bluff is looking for extra help with the trails. Whether it be helping with set-up or help with scaring, call Echo Bluff at 815-447-2115 if interested. BCR photo/Goldie Currie

Check out the charity before ‘going pink’ CHICAGO — Scam charities often use emotional appeals to target their victims, warns the Better Business Bureau. This caution is especially relevant because many businesses are marketing pink ribbon products and services supporting breast cancer research and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) in October. “The goal is for as much of the money to go to the curing cancer, not in running an organization to make money for the operators,” said Steve J. Bernas, president/CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “Consumers can ensure this by asking charities proper questions before donating and by doing a careful assessment of the charity.” Consumers can check out charities online with the BBB at www.bbb.org/charity. The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) organization also has a website at www.nbcam.org. This group is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease and provide greater access to services. The BBB encourages consumers to look for companies that disclose a charity name, the amount of a sale going to the charity, the duration of marketing campaigns and, if applicable, the maximum or minimum contribution amount. While many pink ribbon marketing campaigns are trustworthy, consumers can eliminate breast cancer awareness charity scams by doing the following:

• Research the charity with the BBB. If the product or service is in support of an unfamiliar charity, learn more about the organization by reviewing the BBB’s charity report online at www.bbb.org/charity. • Identify the charity receiving the donation. If the product or service is linked to a donation percentage, contact the business or manufacturer to determine exactly where the money is going and what percentage is donated. • Confirm the charity’s corporate partners. Many national breast cancer charities list the names of corporate partners and sponsors on their websites. • If you contribute, do not give cash. Use a credit card or check or money order made out to the name of the charitable organization, not to the individual collecting the donation. • Keep records of your donations. This includes receipts, canceled checks and bank statements. Keeping these documents will allow you to document your charitable giving at tax time. • Although the value of your time as a volunteer is not deductible, out-of-pocket expenses (including transportation costs) directly related to your volunteer service to a charity are deductible. • Be wary of charities that are reluctant to answer reasonable questions about their operations, finances and programs. • Also be careful of appeals that are long on emotion, but short on describing what the charity actually does. For more information on how to ensure that your donation gets into the right hands, visit www.bbb.org.

Making farm safety No. 1 could save a life Contrary to the popular image of fresh air and peaceful surroundings, a farm is not a hazard-free work setting. Every year, thousands of farm workers are injured and hundreds more die in farming accidents. According to the National Safety Council, agriculture is the most hazardous industry in the nation. Health and safety hazards on farms Farm workers — including farm families and migrant workers — are exposed to hazards such as the following: • Chemicals/pesticides • Cold • Dust • Electricity • Grain bins • Hand tools • Highway traffic • Lifting • Livestock handling • Machinery/Equipment • Manure pits • Mud • Noise • Ponds • Silos • Slips/Trips/Falls • Sun/Heat • Toxic gases • Tractors • Wells High risk factors on farms The following factors may increase risk of injury or illness for farm workers: • Age — Injury rates are highest among children age 15 and under and adults over 65. • Equipment and machinery — Most farm accidents and fatali-

ties involve machinery. Proper machine guarding and doing equipment maintenance according to manufacturers’ recommendations can help prevent accidents. • Protective equipment — Using protective equipment, such as seat belts on tractors, and personal protective equipment (such as safety gloves, coveralls, boots, hats, aprons, goggles, face shields) could significantly reduce farming injuries. • Medical care — Hospitals and emergency medical care are typically not readily accessible in rural areas near farms. How you can improve farm safety You can start by increasing your awareness of farming hazards and making a conscious effort to prepare for emergency situations including fires, vehicle accidents, electrical shocks from equipment and wires, and chemical exposures. Be especially alert to hazards that may affect children and the elderly. Minimize hazards by carefully selecting the products you buy to ensure that you provide good tools and equipment. Always use seat belts when operating tractors, and establish and maintain good housekeeping practices. Here are some other steps you can take to reduce illnesses and injuries on the farm: • Read and follow instructions in equipment operator’s manuals and on product labels. • Inspect equipment routinely for problems that may cause acci-

dents. • Discuss safety hazards and emergency procedures with your workers. • Install approved rollover protective structures, protective enclosures, or protective frames on tractors. • Make sure that guards on farm equipment are replaced after maintenance. • Review and follow instructions in material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and on labels that come with chemical products and communicate information on these hazards to your workers. Fact sheet for farm safety • Take precautions to prevent entrapment and suffocation caused by unstable surfaces of grain storage bins, silos, or hoppers. Never “walk the grain.” • Be aware that methane gas, carbon dioxide, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide can form in unventilated grain silos and manure pits and can suffocate or poison workers or explode. • Take advantage of safety equipment, such as bypass starter covers, power take-off master shields and slow-moving vehicle emblems. The benefits of improved safety and health practices Better safety and health practices reduce worker fatalities, injuries, and illnesses as well as associated costs such as workers’ compensation insurance premiums, lost production, and medical expenses. A safer and more healthful workplace improves morale and productivity.

Food court I’m going to do a few fish dishes, which is something I don’t often do. I’m not a really big fish person, but I know there’s a lot of fish lovers out there; so I will try a seafood column for you once in awhile.

Crispy Beer Battered Fish 1/2 cup cornstarch 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided 1/2 cup 2% milk 1/3 cup beer 2 cups crushed unsalted top saltines (about 40) 4 6-ounce cod fillets Oil for deep fat frying Combine cornstarch, baking powder, salt, Creole seasoning, paprika, cayenne and 1/4 cup flour in a shallow bowl. Stir in milk and beer until smooth. Place crackers and remaining flour in separate shallow bowls. Coat fillets with flour, then dip in batter and coat with crackers. Heat oil to 375° in an electric skillet or deep fat fryer. Fry fish in batches for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. (For 1 teaspoon of Creole seasoning you may substitute 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder and paprika and a pinch each of dried thyme, ground cumin and cayenne pepper.)

Shrimp Chowder 2 ribs celery, chopped (about 1 cup) 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3 baking potatoes (about 6 ounces each) chopped into 1/2-inch dice 1 8-ounce bottle clam juice 1 cup low sodium chicken broth 1/2 cup half and half 1 14-ounce can tiny shrimp, not drained Salt and pepper In a large pot, warm oil over medium heat.
