I imagine most of you have resolutions firmly estab- lished, with great determination to keep them this year. I know I have some self-improvement to work on myself, and some of it includes main- taining good health. So it reallyis in my own best interest to keep a couple of mine. I would like several more years ahead of me to enjoy grandchildren, seeing them graduate from college, get married and see some great-grand- children. My great-grandparents, grandparents and parents have man- aged that, so I think I can too. But again, a good deal of it is up to me. The good people at Community Sharing have not as yet given me the winter dates that theywill be open, but I can assure you, you will know when I do. I know they worked very hard put- ting together their food boxes, cloth- ing and toys for those in need to take home for Christmas. On behalf of the rest of us, I would like to thank all their volunteers for the hard work and long hours needed to perform that task. An eReader class will be held at the Lewiston Library Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. Learn to borrow library books on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, or Android tablet. Up to 20 students can attend free, courtesy of the Friends of the Lewiston Library. Call 786-2985 to reg- ister. Our I-L Bands and their director, Kathy Nieman, deserve a big thank you also for the wonderful Christmas con- cert. I have attended many concerts over the years and this one was a record-setting one. There were more people than ever that attended, and I believe that this year's 6th grade band put on one of the best first-time perfor- mances that I've heard. The 7th and 8th grade band is always impressive, as is the high school band. Their be- havior and attentiveness to the other bands as they perform is to be com- mended, as well. All in all, it makes it very easy to see why they come home with ratings of"one" when they com- pete at Festivals and Solo and En- sembles. They all should be very proud of themselves. Here is a little bit of information that was new to me. If you bum food, place chopped onions in the container you had the bumed stuff in, along with boilingwater. Let it sit for about 5 min- utes before you clean it. That is sup- posed to do the trick for you. Haven't had to try it yet, thank goodness, but I'll try to remember it if I do. This week I'm sending best wishes for a happy anniversary to Gary and Oril Ann Perkins, Jan. 2; Garrett and Hollie Marsh and Leonard and Dolores Yasenchak, Jan. 4; and Chet and Cynthia Janssens, Jan. 8. Best birthday wishes are extended to Sue Slater, Jan. 2; Gerry Cousins, Lucy Fletcher, Kevin Moors and Brandon Stuck, Jan. 3; Faith Battle and Michael Lauret, Jan. 4; Kathy Black and Doris Ellis, Jan. 5; Mickey Forrester, Norm Haskill, Julie Ormanian, Lois Reed, Bill Stringer and Leonard Thomas, Jan. 6; Jaci Roark, Joe Rocheleau, Ruth Schwark and Jake Sherbonda, Jan. 7.

Remember: Snowplows need room to groom! The Michigan Depart- ment of Transportation (MDOT) and the County Road Association of Michi- gan (CRAM) would like to remind everyone that"Road crews put their lives on the line everydayto keep Michi- gan roads safe for every- one," said State Transporta- tion Director KirkT. Steudle. "Motorists must remember to drive with caution no matter how much salt we use or how often the roads are plowed." A steady decrease in road funding and an increase in costs have forced state and local agencies to alter their winter maintenance plans and change plowing priori- ties. However, one impor- tant fact has not changed: road crews must have ample room in order to safely clear the many miles of roadway of snow and ice. "Motorists must do their best to minimize distrac- tions and focus on driving and changes in road condi- tions," John Niemela, CRAM director, said. "Every year, despite the flashing lights on snowplow trucks, poor driver behavior near snowplows leads to colli- sions that can be deadly." MDOT and CRAM offer the following reminders for motorists: * Snowplows have limited visibility and drivers cannot i MS STOPS PEOPLE FROM MOVING WE EXIST TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T jointhement+or 8 National Multiple kk, ro see directly behind their trucks; • Snowplows often throw up snow clouds, reducing visibility on all sides of the truck; • Distracted driving is dan- gerous driving. Motorists should not text or talk on cell phones while they are behind the wheel. In fact, texting while driving is ille- gal in Michigan; • Motorists should never attempt to pass a moving snowplow on the right. With new wing-plow technology, the blade can clear the shoulder and the lane of travel simultaneously. Me- torists attempting an illegal pass through a snow cloud on the right and/or shoul- der of the road most likely won't see the plow blade and run the risk of a serious crash; and • Always wear your safety belt and allow extra time to reach your destinations this winter. Steudle added, "For the safety of everyone, motor- ists should use extreme can- tion when traveling in win- ter weather conditions. We can't emphasize this enough: Snowplows Need Room to Groom!"
