Parents at rock concerts must protect kids from loud sound
did not go up and tell her to get away and save her child’s poor little ears. So, I am begging you to print something about destroying children’s hearing. I know some adults are plain stupid in this matter, but that infant had no choice. -- EXASPERATED IN WILKES-BARRE, PA. DEAR EXASPERATED: I took your letter to Dr. Allen Senne, director of audiology at the famous House Ear Clinic. This is what he had to say, and I hope parents will heed it: “Any noise in excess of 85 decibels -- that’s about as loud as a power lawn mower -- is damaging to the human ear. That’s why OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines prohibit workers from working in areas where they’re exposed to noise greater than 85 decibels for an extended period of time.” “Children are at least as susceptible to the effects of noise exposure as adults. In fact, professionals in the field of audiology are now seeing an increase in the incidence of younger people demonstrating hearing loss due to noise exposure from listening to iPods, Walkmans and other in-ear receivers because the digital sound produced by these devices can be played at louder levels without distortion.” “A typical music concert is amplified 110 to 120 decibels, which is significantly beyond any damage risk criteria, and has the potential for causing irreversible hearing problems. THIS CAN BE THE RESULT OF A ONE-TIME EXPOSURE.” “In fact, I recently treated a boy from Texas who had lost his hearing in one ear because he wanted to be close to the music and stood directly in front of an amplifier at a rock concert. That was a one-time exposure, so draw your own conclusions.” DEAR ABBY: Less than a year after our marriage, my wife wants to exchange the engagement ring I bought her for a larger diamond. Should I be upset about this? -- UPSET IN ILLINOIS DEAR UPSET: Your signature indicates that you are already upset about it. That said, your feelings are your feelings, and you are entitled to them. You are obviously the more sentimental partner in your marriage. Please try to put this in perspective. The real “jewel” isn’t the diamond you put on her finger; it is you. DEAR ABBY: I have been a widow for more than four years. An older man has started to court me. He has also been a widower for about four years. We both had long marriages before our spouses died. He has asked me about my feelings on sex. Abby, what does a 59-year-old woman say to a 71-year-old man about sex without marriage? I’m very shy about this, and it seems to mean a lot to him. This is the first time I have dated since losing my husband, and I have no clue. -- CLUELESS IN WISCONSIN DEAR CLUELESS: The next time the gentleman asks you how you feel about sex, say: “I love sex. How do you feel about marriage?” (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Dear Abby
By Abigail Van Buren

DEAR ABBY: I am begging you to have a medical health professional address this problem. We were at a music festival last night, and sitting near us in front of the amplifier was a young mother with an infant who appeared to be about 5 weeks old. She was there for five hours! I voiced my concern to a woman with her who said, “You can’t tell her anything.” I then spoke to a security guard, asking him to suggest that she move to the rear, away from those killer sound systems. No luck. I’m ashamed to say that I

When life gives you lemons
UNSTICK RICE: To keep rice from sticking together into a globby mess, add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to boiling water before adding the rice. When done, allow to cool, then fluff with a fork. It will stay sparkling white, too. NO MORE SOGGY LETTUCE: Instead of tossing that soggy, limp lettuce, do this: Add the juice of a half lemon to a bowl of cold water. Put the soggy lettuce leaves in the water and refrigerate for one hour. Remove leaves and dry before placing in a salad. CHASE PESTS: Ants, roaches and fleas hate citrus, so do this to keep them away: Squirt lemon juice on the door thresholds and windowsills. Scatter small pieces of lemon peel in the areas around the outside entrance. Mix the juice of four lemons, along with the rind, with 1/2 gallon of water. Use this to clean your floors. The residual smell of citrus will keep pests away. DEODORIZE DISPOSAL: Whenever your disposal starts to send up an offending odor, don’t buy an expensive treatment. Instead, toss leftover lemon and orange peels down the drain. FIGHT OFF A COLD: Mix lemon juice with honey and hot water to soothe coughs and sore throats. For a bonus, you’ll get a dose of vitamin C. MAKE LEMONADE: The basic recipe is 1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. This mixture will be a concentrated syrup that you can dilute as you like. Add ice. FRESHEN DISHWASHER: Jam half a lemon onto an upright tine in your dishwasher. Run the cycle as usual. The dishes will sparkle from the citric acid, and the machine will smell fresh. This helps cut grease and is far more eco-friendly than commercial products. REMOVEWATERMARKS: Get rid of mineral deposits and clean up tarnished chrome. Rub the cut side of half a lemon over stainless steel and porcelain sinks and the faucets, too. Allow to sit for a few minutes, then rinse well. Buff with a soft cloth. GIVEAWAY: This month, we are giving away five lifetime memberships to Debt-Proof Living Online. That means you will enjoy the full membership benefits of the monthly newsletter, financial calculators, discussion groups and more -- for life! Enter at www.debtproofliving. com/lifetime.

Everyday Cheapskate
By Mary Hunt

Having a lemon tree in the backyard is not all that unusual for Californians. But having three Meyer lemon trees (a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin orange) that compete with one another to see which can produce the most lemons is challenging for our bachelor son. A couple of times a year, he picks the lemons and delivers them to lucky me. So what does a person do with 115 pounds of Meyer lemons? Once you gift every friend and neighbor you can think of, squeeze and freeze enough juice to fill the freezer and make lemon-meringue pies, you get really creative. EXFOLIATE: Mix up some lemon pulp and brown sugar and get to work on your feet and elbows. Rinse and moisturize.

September is Rice Month, break out the recipe’s
can celebrate the valuable influence of rice in Acadia Parish and in Louisiana by eating more rice. But first how does eating more rice influence our economy? Well, I am glad you asked! Seven states grow 99% of the rice grown in America. These top rice producing states are Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas and Florida. Louisiana is ranked third in rice production with 347,199 acres planted in 2006. Rice farming in Louisiana impacted the state’s economy by over $181 million in 2006 according to the LSU AgCenter’s Agriculture Summary. Rice is ranked 4th in Louisiana’s commodities, exceeded only by forestry, sugarcane and cotton harvested by 300 producers. And our own Acadia Parish led the state in rice production in 2006 with 82,563 acres. Wow! That’s a lot of rice! No wonder Acadia Parish is called the Rice Capitol of the World! So why would this concern the average consumer? Because rice provides a lot of jobs in a wide variety of sectors in society. Everyone knows that farmers have jobs to grow rice and other workers are employed to aid the farmer in producing the crop. In addition to these vital jobs, the rice industry has also created countless other jobs for people to earn a living. Growing rice helps to expand mills and trucking companies. Other jobs include selling the farm equipment and pesticides. Restaurants, newspapers, magazines, festivals, and tourist attractions are also part of the all-important rice industry in Acadia Parish. Because the rice industry offers so many jobs, it is a vital part of our economy. Perhaps your job is dependant on the influence of the rice industry! So what can you do to support National Rice Month in September? Try new recipes using rice. Talk to you family about the value of rice, both nutritionally and economically. For starters, you may want to try the following recipe. Have a Rice Day!

is excessively demanding. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Before discarding a new idea that you think is too good to be true, run a few tests to see if it has possibilities. You might be surprised at how well it really works. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Carefully choose both your companions and the activities you wish to engage in, and you’ll avoid finding yourself in an uncomfortable position. Be your own person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your temperament might be a bit erratic, especially in dealing with people you think you know. Take nothing for granted and don’t thoughtlessly hurt another’s feelings. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- In your haste to get things out of the way, you could create more trouble for yourself than you would have doing things slowly. Shortcuts or laborsaving devices are apt to boomerang. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In order to gratify a momentary whim, you are likely to dip into funds that are earmarked for something more essential. You’ll pay the price of doing without when you’re caught short.




Sunday, Sept. 16, 2007 Involving yourself in something you like doing offers you a greater chance for success, because you’ll spend quality time on the endeavor to make it what you envision. Don’t waste your time engaging in what you truly dislike. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - If you depend more upon your muscles than your smarts, you are likely to find yourself hammering square pegs into round holes. Figure things out first before you start any project. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Grandiose ideas provide a great deal of fodder for pleasant daydreams, but they usually have little chance of materializing in the real world. Don’t waste your day on nothing but wishful thinking. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If you’ve got a bit of extra cash in your pocket, don’t feel compelled to spend it on meaningless gratification. Save it for something of value that’ll make a difference in your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- The optimism that is part of your natural makeup is a fine quality when applied toward a realistic goal. But if wasted on unsound premises, it’ll be your greatest disappointment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You could have a tendency to jump to conclusions before you have all the facts at your disposal. Making a big error will be the result of sheer impulsiveness on your part. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your worst enemy could be a well-intentioned person who is kidding him/herself about the value of getting involved in something that is too good to be true. Investigate things for yourself. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Expecting too much from others might fool you into believing it is they who are being uncooperative, but in reality, it might be you who

Have two beatiful days at “La Belle Journée
On November 2-4, 2007, downtown Lafayette will travel back in time to the 18th century for an outdoor festival called “La Belle Journée Historic Festival,” evoking the sights, sounds, food, costumes, crafts, local color and atmosphere of 1786, when General La Fayette took possession of his Marquisate of Langeac, France and received the keys to the city from officials there. Lafayette’s festival is patterned after the annual celebration in Langeac, Auvergne, France, also called “La Belle Journée” (The Beautiful Day), during which the entire town turns out in costume and gets into character, participating in scenes that would have been typical during the Marquis de La Fayette’s lifetime. Lost arts and the crafts of yesteryear are demonstrated, and local produce and other foods, artwork and crafts are sold in an old-fashioned marketplace. Both festivals feature typical street scenes from the period, as well as folk dancers, strolling street performers portraying characters from the time period, concerts, wandering minstrels, and open air meals with appropriate food and beverages. Lafayette’s “La Belle Journée Historic Festival” will also feature special performances by Renaissance Cadienne, the UL Wind Ensemble, “La Galinette” folkloric dance troupe from France, various regional bands, a big parade on Saturday afternoon, November 3, and will conclude on Sunday evening, November 4, with a fireworks display. The public is invited to downtown Lafayette, Louisiana on November 3 and 4 for a great weekend of fun, complete with an old world market, parades, music, reenactments, craftspeople, and period costumes. Groups interested in participating in the parade, and volunteers are welcome to contact the organizers. The public is encouraged to participate in the costume contest, with many great prizes! For further information, please contact the International Center at (337) 291-5474.

Laureate Mu Chapter Beta Sigma Phi meet
In her program, No Spend Zone, hostess Nancy Tislow gave a review of Bill O’Reilly’s book, Cultural Warrior. Bill defines in his book that he doesn’t have to be a cultural warrior, but that he is on a mission. Nancy read excerpts from the State of the Union that the armies of secularism are rising and that the public is largely unaware of what is taking place. In the book Bill gives examples of the money men who donate millions to the far left causes, and he profiles some of America’s most powerful electronic media people. It was stated that Fox News Channel is a far more traditional news station analyst. Then she passed out lists of “The Differences Between Us” and “Words for All Traditional Warriors to Live By.” After she read The Traditional Warrior Code, which supports something that has succeeded for 230 years: The American Constitution concept of freedom and justice that allows individuals to prosper and help others, members discussed their experience in dealing with things that were brought out in the book. Members made plans for another cultural trip, soon. Bags of beans were collected by Elsie Rowell for Crowley Christian Care Center. Hostess Nancy Tislow served refreshments to members Clementine Kirsch, Jean Hanks, Gloria Stutes, Connie Joubert, Shirley Griffin, and Elsie Rowell. Door prize was won by Elsie Rowell.
