I started a walking program three mornings a week. I was excited to begin. It was held in a heated indoor arena with a flat track. Two people from the Healthy Heart Program would be there giving advice and taking blood pressure, as well as leading the gentle exer- cise classes. It seemed perfect. And the first few classes were fun. I felt better after each class, ener- gized and ready to face the rest of the day. Alas, I neglected to consider the human element -- me. It appears that I need more encouragement than just the opportunity to put a check next to my name on the attendance list for every day I show up. Setting goals didn't help. Prom- ising myself rewards for attending didn't help either. On the Internet I found com- panies that will send telephone reminders, some of which you can record yourself. The services, how- ever, are expensive. Then there are computer soft- ware programs that will pop reminders up on the monitor. There's always the alarm clock, set to go off at the right time. In my case, the solution was a lot easier than signing up for a Call-reminder service. Instead, I swapped phone numbers with one other person in the class. It was her idea because she also found herself lacking the right motiva- tion to get to class. On even days of the month, I call her in the morn- ing to ask if she's going to class. On odd days she calls me. Having to answer to someone else seems to be working. I've gone to enough classes in a row now that I don't think I'll start skipping them. It might be low-tech, but it's working. 2009 King Features Synd., Inc. Looking for a way-to save?

Kathy Pederson ; ...... ::ii Minnesota State Patrol Child car-safety seating Trooper Kathy Says: Valentines Day is approaching, which makes now a great oppor- tunity for parents and caregivers to show the children in their life how much they are loved by mak- ing sure they are seated in the cor- rect child safety restraint. As a trooper, I couldn't tell you the countless number of children I've seen bouncing around the back seat of the family car, clearly not restrained. Many parents make mistakes when it comes to properly securifig their children in a vehicle: kids in the wrong safety seat, child seats not fastened tightly enough and, of course, children ages 4-8 years and under 4 feet 9 inches tall riding in only a seat belt rather than a booster seat. Booster seats are seat lifts that help seat belts fit children properly. Children under 4 feet 9 inches tall who are riding only in a lapand shoulder belt involved in crashes can suffer serious inter- nal injuries such as abdominal injuries and internal organ dam- age (spleen lacerations). Injuries also include head and neck inju- ries, mainly internal decapitation - meaning the head is separated from the spine. A sign that a seat belt does not fit properly and a booster is needed is if the child wraps the shoulder belt behind him to avoid the belt rub- bing against his neck. The most common child passenger safety mistakes are: Turning a child from a rear- facing restraint to a forward- facing restraint too soon. Restraint is not secured tightly enough - it should not shift more than one inch side-to-side or out from the seat. Harness on the child is not tight enough - if you can pinch harness material, it's too loose. Retainer clip is up too high or too low - should be at the child's armpit level. The child is in the wrong restraint - don't rush your child into a seat belt. Parents are encouraged to visit the state's <www.buckleupkids.> Web site to down- load fact sheets and a child safety chart that identifies the proper seat for children as they grow and age. Also available online are the "Buckle Up Kids" and "Don't Skip a Step" brochures that provide details on how to properly secure a child in a vehicle. The site also includes fun booster-seat themed valentines that kids can color and give to par- ents. Teachers can also find fun activities to use in class about child passenger safety. Parents and caregivers are the most important role models to their children. Always demon- strate the importance of seat belts by buckling up - and make sure your children are buckled up cor- rectly, too. If you have any questions regarding traffic safety and/or traffic laws, please e-mail her at <kathypederson>. Sgt. Pederson will not offer advice on specific situations or real events which involve law enforcement. 250 JUST s999 PER MONTH CHANNELS ---) for 2009 FREE MINI LAPTOP " Welcome to the New Frontier CALL TODAY! 1.866.585.9972 www.
