(BPT) - As cooler weather de- scends, homes heat up and so does the risk your family could experi- ence a home fire or carbon mon- oxide (CO) poisoning. According to the National Fire Protection As- sociation, most home fires and CO poisonings occur in the winter. Be- sides heating appliances, seasonal activities such as increased cook- ing, candle usage and holiday deco- rations all add to the risk. In fact, the U.S. Fire Administration reports that each year winter fires claim an average of 945 lives, injure 3,825 people and cause more than $1.7 billion in property loss. To help keep your home worry free from fire and CO this winter, the experts at Kidde Fire Safety have developed a quick check list. Answer these questions to custom- ize your winter home improvement projects with tasks that save money, reduce a common household an- noyance and increase safety. One in four older homes needs to update fire safety equipment. How old are your alarms? * Replace smoke alarms every 10 years and CO alarms every five to 10 years, based on the alarm model. * Purchase an alarm with a 10- year sealed lithium battery, such as Kidde Worry-Free smoke and I your CO alarms, to receive hassle-free protection for a decade -- no need to change a battery or hear a low- battery chirp. Available at retailers nationwide, with each alarm in- stalled saving you $40 over its life in battery costs. Seventy-five percent of hom- eowners don't know where to in- stall smoke alarms. Do you have enough? * Fire experts recommend plac- ing smoke, alarms on every floor and inside/outside all bedrooms. Choose alarms with room-specific features, such as an LED light in the hallway, or a voice notification for the bedroom. * Place a CO alarm near sleeping areas and on each floor. Keep them 10 feet away from fuel-burning ap- pliances. Do your alarms incorporate the newest features and technology? * A sealed-in 10-year lithium bat- tery not only continuously powers the alarm, it's also tamper-proof and can't be removed. * A digital display shows the lev- el of CO in the air and updates the those commonly caused by cook- ing. *An end-of-life appliance warn- ing lets you know when to replace your alarms. Do you need other safety prod- ucts? * Fire extinguisher - place one within reach in rooms where fires often begin: kitchen, garage, bed- room, living area * Escape ladder - place in second- and third-floor rooms as an alterna- tive escape route Have you developed a family es- cape plan? *Create a plan and practice regu- larly. Know two ways out of every room and who will assist children and loved ones with mobility/health issues. Do your children know their ad- dress and how to dial 911 ? * Post your home address and emergency phone numbers on the refrigerator. Are your appliances and chimney winter-ready ? * Have a professional inspect fuel-burning appliances to ensure they function properly and that they vent outside. reading every 15 seconds. * Have a professional clean or *An intelligent multi-sensor re-.

(Out of State) 1 Now serving soups daily from I I am -4pm Monday -Chicken Tortilla Tuesday - Beef Vegetable Wednesday - Cheeseburger Potato Thursday - Creamy Knoephla Friday - Chili By: Madi Bommersbach EHS Journalism Class Ellendale high school students have been getting the chance to experience life as a teen parent. Girls and boys taking Child Devel- opment and FCS 1, both taught by Jennifer Mount, get the opportunity to take home a "Real Care Baby" for the weekend and are graded on how well they treat their baby. The final grade is based on several fac- tors that may total to 100 points. Points are taken off if the student misses feedings, handles the baby roughly, misses diaper changes, and forgets to burp the baby. Han- dling the baby roughly is the most common error made by students because the baby's head and neck are so sensitive, even the slight- est drop of the head will result in a three point deduction. The baby cries, coos, and weighs the same as an actual newborn. To prevent cheating or talking someone into taking care of your baby for you there is a unique wireless ID brace- let that the instructor puts on your wrist to ensure accountability. If Egg Nog 4 cups milk 5 whole cloves 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 12 egg yolks 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 1/2 cups light rum 4 cups light cream 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 tea- spoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes.

Only the instructor is al- lowed to cut the bracelet off when you return to school the following Monday. Lindsey Boniek, a junior at EHS, took her baby to Ruby Tuesday's on her assigned weekend. Lindsey said the baby got a lot of atten- tion at the restaurant and she also received a lot of surprised looks when other customers saw her with the car seat. Isabel Wedell, a soph- omore, said being a mom for the weekend was very eye-opening. She was glad to give the baby back because she wants to be a kid for as long as possible and not take care of one. Another sophomore, Kirst- en Stoppleworth, said the baby made her realize how hard it is to take care of a child. All of the girls agreed that their least favorite part of the Real Care Baby was waking up several times in the middle of the night to feed the child. Overall, taking home the baby was a great learning experience.
