Ouad City. HerAld .lun~ 28 20131 PaOA 5 parade Cont'd from page 1 parade and the fireworks, which begins about dusk. There will be vendors in the park during the afternoon as well. The fireworks show is sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion. More than 500 shells will be shot into the sky Wednesday night, including really big eight- inch shells, and more than 200 pretty big five and six inch shells. About a dozen volunteers do all the work, which allows SAL members to get a lot of bang for their buck. "We gain a lot by doing it ourselves," said Vern Westerdahl, one of the organizers. A volunteer goes to Walerville to pick up the shells QCH file photo (which requires ahazardous materials transport license). Other volunteers are needed to sort the shells, bury the launchers in sand, check the fuses, load the tubes during the show. Dan and Candi Pariseau are licensed pyrotechnicians, and they light the fuses. The fireworks show will last about 30 to 45 minutes. There are many little mysteries in this life--where the socks go that disappear between washer and dryer, what is in those dishes at the back of the refrigerator, why Brussels sprouts should be healthier than ice cream. Being human organizations, municipalities have their mysteries too. Pateros city officials want to try and solve one of those little mysteries with the help of a television camera. The camera will be inserted into the city's sewer system, to check the condition of the sewer lines--and maybe to find out where all the extra water is coming from. More water is entering the city's wastewater treatment facility than there should be: thai might mean a leak, but where? The TV camera will prowl throughout the wastewater treatment system, looking for leaks and any repairs that migh t be needed. The project will cost $60,000. In other business at the regular Pateros City Council meeting Monday,June 18. council members decided to consult an expert about some trees in the city parks. The trees are showing signs of disease, and city officials want to know whether they can be cured or need to be removed. Council members decided to attach a lock to a water spigot in the city park, so they can determine who are the city's bulk water customers. Some people who live or have summer homes in the hills around Pateros don't have a regular supply of water, and some of them fill up large water tanks periodically at the city's spigot. City officials raised bulk water use fees in May, but they wanted to know who is using the water. The lock can be opened by city employees only. Guilt-free sizzling summer outdoor grilling For many families, longer days and brighter skies signal a unanimous dash tot he backyard deck or nearby park for summer grilling and barbecues. Whether it's a simple family dinner or an enormous Fourth ofJ uly celebration, losing sight of healthy food choices can be the difference between a couple of inches added to your waistline and comfortably fitting into your favorite summer outfit. Dangers and pitfalls lurk behind every corner while barbecuing, especially since grilling is widely perceived as being healthier. Asaresult, most of us tend to let our guard down when preparing foods for, and eating at, barbecues. To ensure you're making the right decision, preparation is key. Knowing what's best for you and your health is the In'st step to maintaining a well- balanced diet. Weight Watchers meetings regularly teach that deprivation should never be the focus. Instead Weight Watches encourages the importance of alternatives and making good food choices. Weight Watchers has identified several sensible selections for healthy eating when you're grilling outdoors. Some of our most cherished traditional barbecue dishes have fat and calorie counts that can sabotage months and even years of hard work and dedication. So remember there are no forbidden focal, only choices. Instead of hamburgers and potato chips, try grilled chicken and tortilla chips and salsa. Substitute fresh or grilled vegetables for mayonnaisebased salads like coleslaw or potato salad. Beef, chicken or shrimp shishkebobs can replace hot dogs. Try iced tea or lemonade rather than soda. Ribs or steak can be replaced by grilled tuna or salmon, and try sherbet or sorbet rather than ice cream. license The Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) will begin piloting its new digitized driver license on Tuesday, June 26 at the Greenwood Licensing Service Office located at 320 N. 85" Street in Seattle.

Main, Brewster 689-2507 Horse Liniment Eases Arthritis availability OCALA, FL -- An ingredient derived from hot peppers that decreases in- flammation in racehorse's legs, is now recognized as safe and effective for human use. The ingredient has been tbrmulated into a product called ARTH- Rx and comes in a strength designed for humans. Researchers are excited and say the formula can relieve arthri- tis pain for millions. Developed by the Phillips Gulf Cor- poration, ARTH-Rx is a breakthrough in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as ar- thrifts, bursitis, rheumatism, tendoni- tie, backache and more. Although the mechanism by which ARTH-Rx works to relieve pain is not totally clear, scientists suggest that pain is relieved because ARTH-Rx in- tercepts the messenger substance that sends pain signals to the brain. ARTH-Rx is available in a conve- nient roll-on applicator without a pre- scription. Each bottle of ARTH-Rx comes with a free sample of ARTHRO ORAL, which supplements the lotion. According to a spokesperson for the company, due to the overwhelming demand for ARTH-Rx, supplies are Sometimes limited. ARTH-Rx can also be ordered by calling 1-800-729-8446 or www.hcdsales. 200] PGC ARTH-RX is ovoiloble IocQIly Qt: HYDRO-FRACTURING MAY BE YOUR ANSWER SPECIAL HYDRO FRACTURING OFFER. 100% guarantee or your money back on your hydro-fracturing if Northwest Hydro-fracturing does not improve your water well yield 100%.
