SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, October 29, 1998 9 The Jefferson County Chapter, American Red Cross, passes along these important safety tips to both kids and adults for Halloween: Walk, slither, and sneak on sidewalks, n~ in the street. Look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks, and low flying brooms. Cross the street only at cor- ners. Don't hide or cross the street between parked cars. Wear light-colored or reflective- type clothing so you are more vis- ible. (And remember to put reflec- tive tape on bikes, skateboards, and brooms, too!) Plan your route and share it with your family. If possible, have an adult go with you. Carry a flashlight to light your way. Keep away from open fire and candles. (Costumes can be ex- tremely flamable). Visit homes that have the porch light on. Accept your treats at the door and never go into a stranger's house. Use face paint rather than masks or things that will cover your eyes. Be cautious of animals and strangers. Have a grown-up inspect your treats before eating. And don't eat candy if the package is already opened. The real name of the painting known as the Mona Lisa is La Giaconda. It is the portrait of a middle-class Florentine woman, tncina Stonesifer, second from left, co-president of the Friday Book Club, presents to Lance, librarian, a book in memory of Mrs. Hugh (Dorothy Huyett) Caperton.

First-year successes for Keep Jefferson Beautiful show that 14 groups have adopted a county road for cleanup (about a 33% in- crease in the number of adopters); educating the public has begun through newspaper articles, radio public service announcements, es- tablishment of a litter line (725- 7356), and operation of a booth at the Jefferson County Fair where Keep Jefferson Beautiful handed out hundreds of its newly-pub- lished pamphlet, along with envi- ronmental and anti-litter materi- als provided by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. Some progress has also been made in the cleanup of bad dump sites in the county. Working with different state agencies responsible for cleanup issues such as the Divisions of Natural Resources, highways, and environmental protection, action to cleanup the worst problems has begun - near the Millville Dam, at the Route 9 Scenic Overlook, on two properties one east and one south of Charles Town, and on County Road 18 (Daniels Road) near Shenandoah Junction. Support has been received from the Jefferson County Sheriff who has designated a deputy to serve as community service officer and community service workers are now being assigned for cleanup work at some of the worst sites. Also, the Division of Natural Re- sources (DNR) has assigned .a new law enforcement officer to Jeffer- son County who, among other du- ties, has specific responsibilities for enforcing state litter laws.
