While it is a legal require- ment, it offers many benefits, such as eligibility for federal student aid, federal jobs and federal job-trm'ning programs. Every resident male must regis- ter with the Selective Service between 30 days before and 30 days after his 18th birthday. Those who enter the country after age 18 should still register before their 26th birth- day. Registration is required for immigrants to become citizens. When graduating high school, don't forget to register for the Selective Service. It is required for young men. Registration is easy. Most high schools have a Selective Service Registrar who can help or you can register online at www.sss.gov. Forms are also available at any post office. You may even get a card in the mail that you can just send back. Another way to regis- ter is to check a box on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Learn more at www.sss.gov. Help Protect The Health iOf Your Family And The Earth The Dance Real Men Wear Pink At "The Dance", the Sons of the American Legion are typically clad in shirts of the most outlandish colors. Previously they have worn garish green, yucky yellow, and ohmygod orange. The reason for this is so the guests can recognize them if they are in need and so they stand proudly amongst the throngs. These are not the commemorative shirts that are for sale to the public, but the badge that is reserved for the Sons who come together to put on this massive event. This year, in a nod to breast cancer awareness, and to the women they love and adore, the Sons have chosen PINK. Previously, the Sons have contributed to Postmaster Laura's run to raise funds for this worthy cause and are working with her toward an informational booth at the site of "The Dance". The big strapping men of SAL with rippling muscles and bulging arms should look kind of cute in their shirts, but they recognize the big picture. Banner sales are off to a good start, but if you have not purchased one in the past, time is required to get copy info to the printer. Last year, banner sales broke records in a tough economy and it's no secret that this year is tougher, but hopes are high that a new record can be set this year. You do not have to own or advertise a business to purchase a banner. More and more families are purchasing banners and if you would like a banner to commemorate a past or active service member, a special area will be set aside to honor the men and women who have served this nation. The funds raised by sales of banners helps pay for this event and funds from this event are what the Sons contribute back into our community. Consider this, The Sons of the American Legion since last years event have contributed approximately $30,000 back into Julian. Dondions over the past three years to Julian High School alone by the ined efforts of the Legion, The Sons, and Ladies Auxiliary have exceeded $53,000. It is evident, that without you supporting the efforts of these groups, that the generation and distribution of these funds would not be possible. Want to help, buy a banner, buy some tickets, come to "The Dance", have a cold drink and Bar-b-que, dance with your Sweetheart under those beautiful starlit skies and have a great time. Call 760-752-5050 for information.

According to a recent survey by Johnson & Johnson Wound Care, 40 percent of families surveyed have an expired tube of topical antibiotic ointment in their medicine cabinetl Such medicines may lose efficacy after the expiration date and are limited in their ability to protect from infections. You should replace it to ensure that you are protecting cuts and scrapes from infection with the best product possible. Instead of throwing it in the trash and letting it end up in a landfill, however, consider recycling the tube in a unique and easy way. Get Around to "Upcycling" Used and discarded packaging can be "upcycled" into useful, high-quality products. TerraCycle, a company that turns recycled goods into cool, innovative products, and the No. 1 doctor-recommended topical antibiotic ointment brand are giving families an option to do just that with expired or empty tubes. Families are encouraged to join a "Neosporin Tube Brigade." Members collect expired tubes from neighbors, classmates and sports teams and send them to TerraCycle to be recycled. Each approved tube raises two cents for a nonprofit organization or continued on page 12 pacious country home in Kentwood, 3 BR, 2 BA, 2156 sq.ft, on .20 Acre. Sun deck with spa atop 2-car garage.

Online Accounts: A Rewarding Way To Save For College (NAPSA)-A new online savings program may be good news for parents who are looking for ways to save for their child's college education. New FDIC-insured, high- yield, online savings accounts and certificates of deposit from Sallie Mae are designed to offer competitive interest rates, no monthly fees, no minimums and ways to earn extra through the rewards program called Upromise. High-Yield Savings The high-yield savings account currently offers rates five times the national average, according to Bankrate.com's October 2009 Passbook & Statement Savings Study-and an easy-to-get- started, no-minimum balance requirement. The new certificates of deposit currently offer competitive interest rates, no minimum balance or monthly fees, and terms of 12 months, 36 months or 60 months.

Congress Looks At Toxic Load For California's Kids by Lori Abbot SACRAMENTO, Calif. Californians are considered some of the most aware in the nation regarding environmental toxins, according to watch, god groups. Some common ones, like flame retardants, certain plastics, chemical dyes and pigments, are on the list of substances that could be more regulated if Congress changes the Toxic Substances Control Act. The changes would give the EPA more regulatory power over such chemicals, especially those apt to affect children. Maureen Swanson, director of the Healthy Children Project at the Learning Disabilities Association of America, says the changes are important because scientific evidence has documented health problems related to the toxins. This is information that wasn't available when the law was first passed, and she claims technicalities in the original law have made it tough for the EPA to regulate even well-known toxins, such as asbestos. "The statute required such a high level of proof for EPA to meet that they could not meet it and could not ban asbestos. I think most Americans think asbestos has been banned. It wasn't. Since that time, the EPA has not tried again." Specifically including protections for children is key, says Swanson, because they're more sensitive to exposure. "Pound for pound, children breathe more air, drink more water and eat more food than adults do, so they're just taking in a lot more of whatever is out there. They also spend a lot more time on the ground, and they put hands and objects in their mouth ." Of the 80,000 chemicals approved for use in the U.S., the EPA has been able to require safety testing of only 200. The new Safe Chemicals Act of 2010 would require that chemicals meet basic safety standards to protect pregnant women and children.
