MANISTEE — Autumn Slawter’sfourth-grade class at Kennedy Elementary is living proof that creativ-ity in the arts doesn’t really have an agelimit.Slawter recently held a Poetry Cafe with her class that allowed them to readpoems they wrote to family members andfriends. It was the first time she tried thisconcept in her classroom and the poetry her class created amazed the Kennedy teacher.“I got this idea from a teacher in Troy  who has her own website and she does aPoetry Cafe with her students,” Slawtersaid. “We decorated the media centerarea to look like a cafe with table cloths,

and then we provided cof-fee, tea and treats for ourguests. The students thenread their poems and weinvited any of our guests toread their poems as well.“It was fun and really gives the kids a purposein their poems. They were very proud of their poems. We had an open mic forothers to read their favoritepoems, and I read one thatI wrote in seventh grade.”That poem Slawter read was published in the
 Flint  Journal 
, but she pointedout what amazed her wasthe quality of the poemscreated by her students who were much younger sur-passed her own.“Their poems were really good and after I read mine,it surprised me just how  well they compared to theone I wrote at an older age,”Slawter said.Students studied a vari-ety of poetry styles includ-ing verse, haiku, rhyme andmetaphor poetry. Slawtersaid that the rhyming sec-tion proved to be especially popular with the students.They also were given bare books that allowed them toturn their works into a book of poetry where they coulddesign a cover and addother illustrations.“We read the rhym-ing poetry of SheldonSilverstein, and the kids just loved it,” Slawter said.“That seemed to inspirethem to write their ownpoetry. We also learnedhow to write the haiku andmetaphor poems. A lot of them took one example totry and compare themselvesto an animal or think of themselves as a doctor,nurse.”Amber Miller took thatto heart and created a poemthat Slawter said was very descriptive of that profes-sion. The poem which wastitled “I am a nurse”“I am a shot of help topeople.I am tube of comfortI am the bandage thatholds you together.I am an IV that keeps you alive.I am the medicine thatheals you.I am a stethoscope thatkeeps your heart going.I am a Popsicle stick that keeps your tonsilshealthy.I am the blood pressureof your life.I am the nurse the caresfor you the most.” Another poem thatdrew a great deal of atten-tion came from AbrielleBriske called Kathy “KillieTillie Tath.” It read:“Kathy Tillie Tath would not give poorLulu a bath.She’d shower herself, brush her teeth,and even scrub under-neath.She’d cook and clean,she’d hike and grow  beans, but she would not giveher poor little dog a bath. A month, a year, adecade passed until Kathy couldn’t even do the math.Lulu grew black andKathy Killie Tillie Taththought that was funny so she would just laugh.This angered Lulu andshe grew red,she tore up the couchand peed in the bed.Kathy was speechlessand she took a med.Lulu was crazy in thehead,she went nuts she atethe house whole.Kathy Killie Tillie Tathgot so scared she climbeda pole.So children, rememberto clean your petand if you can’t thencall the vet.”Slawter hopes to turnthe program into an annualevent for the students of her class.

Summertime prom-ises easy living, but forour furry friends, warmer weather poses serioushealth risks. And thissummer, the NationalOceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) isforecasting weather condi-tions that could set thestage for larger than nor-mal flea and tick infesta-tions all over the U.S. While it’s vital to treatpets year-round, take extrasteps in warmer months— both indoors and outside— to ensure a safe season.
Fight Fleas
During its two to three week average life, a singleflea will lay hundreds of eggs. Failing to stop there-infestation cycle couldmake eliminating theproblem nearly impos-sible. When fleas strike,nip the problem in the budimmediately. Keep your petgroomed and use a topicaltreatment monthly. Washpet bedding, vacuum rugsand carpets, and spray your yard.The good news is thatkeeping pets flea-free nolonger needs to cost afortune. New generic treat-ments on the market areaffordable alternatives topopular veterinary brandslike Frontline and Parastar.For example, FiproguardMax contains fipronil, a veterinarian-recommendedactive ingredient, and thisnew formula has beenshown to kill fleas andticks quickly. Just be sureto weigh your pet carefully to ensure the correct dos-age. Don’t guess your pet’s weight!
War on Worms
Did you know almostall puppies under threemonths old have round- worms? It’s no wonder why — a female can shedup to 100,000 eggs every day! Unfortunately wormsare common and there aremultiple species to guardagainst. A pot-bellied appear-ance, weight loss, listless-ness and vomiting are signsof infection. To ensure yourpet’s safety, prevent worms before they start. Monthly deworming products like WormX Plus can treat any existing problem and alsoact as a preventative to keeppuppies and adult dogssafe.
Take on Ticks
 You may think of ticksas a concern reserved forcamping trips and treksthrough the woods, butthese creepy crawlers live insuburban yards and urbanparks too. A tick bite is not just an annoyance; it canlead to inflammation of the joints, lack of appetite,depression, kidney damageand Lyme disease.Be sure to spot check  your pooch (and yourself)after spending time inpotentially tick-infestedareas. Never try to removea tick yourself. If the heador pincers remain underthe skin, you’ll increase thechance of disease transmis-sion. Apply a topical treat-ment that kills and repelsticks. If you prefer avoidingchemicals, try a combina-tion of botanical oils that isdeadly to ticks and insects but safe for pets and people.For example the natu-ral ingredients in Sentry Natural Defense are pep-permint oil, cinnamon oil,lemon grass oil and thymeoil. More information ona natural approach to fleaand tick safety can be foundat www.sentrynatural.com.
