Building begins at Paris church
PARIS — The dirt is about to fly!
After a three-year process of
discernment, planning and
fundraising, the Paris United
Methodist Church is about to make a
major addition to the church building
for the first time in decades. The
church has been a landmark — serving
the spiritual needs of the community
— since 1880. It has grown and
changed over the years, seeking to
better serve the needs of God’s people.
Very soon, construction will begin
to make the church facilities fully
accessible to all. A ramp has already
been added to the front entrance.
Now, an accessible bathroom and
wheelchair lift to the basement/
Fellowship Hall will open the church
to all comers. Additionally, to
accommodate growth in the church
(both present and anticipated) two
new classrooms will be constructed.
All of this will have new basement
space underneath, as well. The Paris
United Methodist Church will be
well-situated to serve Paris and the
surrounding area for another 130
years.
You can participate in this project by
saving some money and having fun at
the same time! There will be a giant
yard-sale, bake sale, auction and silent
auction at the Paris UMC in Paris,
Michigan (right behind the post office)
on Saturday, May 29. All proceeds
will go to the above-described project.
The yard-sale will be from 8 a.m. until
4 p.m. (please, no early sales). The
auction will be at 2 p.m. The silent
auction will run from 8 a.m. until the
winning bids are announced at the 2
p.m. auction. Delicious baked goods
and other items will be available
throughout the day.
Barryton Village receives
$40,000 in USDA grant
BARRYTON — The Barryton Village
Board received a $40,000 grant from
the Rural Business Enterprise Grant
program through the United States
Department of Agriculture Rural
Development Office. The village board
will be applying this grant money to
the proposed farmers market on the
former tire site. For more information,
contact the village office at (989) 382-

Teach Your Children Well:
Vaccinate To Protect Health
(NAPSI)-Polio, whooping cough
and measles are the diseases of
our parents’ and grandparents’
generations....outdated like eight-
track tapes and typewriters. Or are
they?
In fact, there is real danger that
history could repeat itself when it
comes to many infectious diseases.
Many parents don’t realize that the
germs that cause these diseases still
exist today and can infect infants,
children and even adults if they are
not vaccinated. History shows that
a decrease in immunization sets the
stage for the reappearance of the
diseases of the past, even when the
population was previously protected.
“Vaccines are among the greatest
achievements of modern medicine,”
said Alanna Levine, MD, FAAP,
a spokesperson for the American
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “But
unless people are fully immunized,
they are susceptible to these diseases.
This is a potentially serious public
health issue because many vaccine-
preventable diseases can have
dangerous consequences, including
seizures, brain damage, blindness,
and even death.”
Still, not all children in the U.S.
are getting their recommended
vaccinations. According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention’s
(CDC) annual National Immunization
Survey, nearly one-quarter of children
in the U.S. between the ages of 19
and 35 months did not receive the
recommended series of childhood
vaccines in 2008, the last year for
which this figure is available.
To address this gap, the AAP has
launched the Protect Tomorrow
campaign. The campaign encourages
parents to be better informed about
the value of vaccines and talk with
their pediatrician to ensure their
children are up-to-date with their
immunizations. The full immunization
schedule recommended by the AAP,
the CDC and the American Academy
of Family Physicians (AAFP) is
available at ProtectTomorrow.org.
The core components of the
educational campaign are TV and
radio public service announcements
that encourage all of us to remember
the devastation of the diseases
that can now be largely prevented
by vaccines. To complement the
PSAs, there are additional resources
online at ProtectTomorrow.org.
Three individuals featured in the
TV PSA recount their past personal
experiences with vaccine-preventable
diseases.
Cile Turner Borman, who grew up
in Mississippi, remembers how
devastating it was when her Aunt
Sweetie died from diphtheria. Her
family did not have access to health
care, let alone vaccinations, so they
watched in pain as Aunt Sweetie
died. It wasn’t until her family moved
to Detroit and there were vaccine
requirements for school admission
that they learned about the benefits of
immunizations.
“With vaccines available today for so
many diseases, there is no reason why
anyone should have to suffer the way
Aunt Sweetie did,” said Cile.
Jack Bunkley, of Atlanta, was
paralyzed after he contracted polio
when he was 27 years old. Only after a
slow and painful recovery was he able
to walk again. Since being struck with
post-polio syndrome two years ago, he
now has difficulty walking again.
“People should take advantage of
vaccines and not take their health for
granted,” said Jack, who made sure
his children and grandchildren had
their vaccinations on time. “I wouldn’t
want anyone to suffer as I did, and
with the vaccines that are now
available, there are steps parents can
take to help protect their children and
themselves.”
Ann Rittenhouse, of Pasadena, Calif.,
had measles and chickenpox herself
and witnessed the impact chickenpox
had on her sons when they were
young.
“I urged my son to have his daughter
vaccinated,” said Ann. “If there are
medical advances that will help you or
your children avoid illness, then you
should take advantage of them.”
To find out more about vaccinations
and the recommended immunization
schedule, talk with your
healthcare provider or log on to

Help For College-Bound
Students
(NAPSI)-Students and families
starting the college search process
have a place to turn to make the
process a bit easier. A new guide for
families helps simplify the process
of getting college-bound students
admitted to college.
The Alliance for Affordable
Services produces the guide and
sponsors a scholarship program
to help make these tasks more
manageable. The College Preparation
Handbook, available free online at
AffordableServices.org/college, shows
students and their parents how to
prepare for college during high school,
choose the right college and navigate
the admissions process.
It also offers assistance for finding
loans, grants and scholarships to help
pay the ever-increasing costs of a
higher education. According to U.S.
Census Bureau statistics, the average
cost of tuition and room and board for
in-state students at a four-year public
college for the entire academic year is
more than $15,000.
“The Alliance for Affordable Services
understands that the cost of college
weighs heavily on hardworking
Americans,” says Paul Pevsner, M.D.,
president of the association. “That’s
why we make this handbook available
to all college-bound students.”
The College Preparation Handbook
can help any student planning
to attend a four-year university,
community college or vocational/
trade school. Filled with tips and
checklists that guide students through
the college search, admissions and
financial aid process, it also provides
links to websites, organizations and
government agencies that offer more
information and assistance.
The handbook complements the
Alliance Scholarship Program,
which is open to eligible 16- to
28-year-old dependents of Alliance
members, and presents $2,000 to
first-time recipients who are pursuing
undergraduate degrees. Renewable
scholarships of $1,000 per year are
available for up to three consecutive
years to scholarship recipients who
maintain a 3.5 grade point average.
Since the program’s inception in
1996, more than $1.4 million has
been awarded; in 2009, the Alliance
awarded $288,000 in scholarships
to 201 college-bound students across
the nation. The annual application
deadline is June 15.
The Alliance for Affordable Services is
a national, not-for-profit organization
dedicated to helping its members live
better and save more. The Alliance
leverages the strength in numbers
to negotiate significant savings on a
variety of business, lifestyle and health
care benefits for its 90,000 members.
Benefit availability is dependent upon
membership level, package option and
member’s state of residence, and may
be subject to change.
For more information, visit www.
AffordableServices.org or call Alliance
Member Services at (800) 733-2242.
Printing Tips To Reduce
Environmental Impact
(NAPSI)-Paper consumption can
account for a vast majority of the total
carbon footprint of a printing device,
making it the largest contributor
above other factors such as energy
consumption and manufacturing.
So for those small business and home
office owners who really want to
minimize the environmental impact
of printing, just looking at “green”
products or products that are “eco-
engineered” is not enough. Even
looking at the energy efficiency of the
device isn’t enough, since the amount
of watts consumed by printing devices
are all pretty much the same.
In fact, it takes up to 60 times more
electrical energy to manufacture one
sheet of paper than it does for a laser
printer to print on it.
So how do you print less? How do you
effectively reduce the volume of pages
flowing through the devices deployed
throughout your organization?
Try these tips:
• Think before you print. Whether
at home or at work, just take a
moment to print smarter. Review

and only print final versions when
necessary. Share soft (electronic)
copies of documents when possible.
Also, reduce your margins in text
documents to get more content onto
each page, therefore reducing the total
number of pages used.
• Print on both sides of the paper.
Check to see if your printer offers a
duplex or two-sided printing option.
This automatically cuts the amount of
paper being used and therefore your
cost of paper supplies is reduced by up
to 50 percent.
• Print text only (or print in draft
mode) to reduce the amount of ink
used.
• Use high-yield cartridges to reduce
your cost per page.
• Share printers in the home or
office through wireless networking
technology.
• Recycle your printed pages and
use paper with recycled content.
If you print on one side only, save
those pages in a designated spot and
use again on the blank side. Use a
designated blue box for this, placing
the side with text face down to make
reuse easier.
• Look for electronics with a longer
warranty, such as Lexmark’s
Professional Series inkjet products,
which offer an industry-leading, five-
year warranty to extend the life cycles
of your devices.
• Join a supply rewards program.
Supply programs reduce your costs
and reward you for purchasing and
recycling original cartridges. For
full program details, visit www.
lexmarkrewards.com.
• When the printer’s life cycle is
complete, return the printer to
a dedicated collection point for
recycling.
• Reduce energy usage by switching the
device off after use.
• Choose a multifunction device that
allows you to scan a document into a
digital format for storage on shared
folders, archiving or sending through
e-mail.

Smart Steps To Grow Greener At
Work
(NAPSI)-Like many people, you
probably recycle aluminum cans,
“newspaper,” plastics and glass at
home, but how green are you at
the office? Becoming greener won’t
happen overnight, but here are some
tips for making the transition. “Start
by making small changes to your
everyday purchases and practices,”
explains Yalmaz Siddiqui, Director
of Environmental Strategy for Office
Depot. “For example, buy green by
seeking products with just a small
amount of recycled content, or be
green by turning off your light each
time you leave your office or cube.”
To help people along this path, Office
Depot has created a new Web site at
www.officedepotgrowgreener.com
featuring thousands of eco-preferable
office products and solutions.
Customers can also submit their own
ideas on this Web site on how their
business is growing greener. For each
green idea submitted, the company
will plant a tree on the customer’s
behalf, with the goal of planting
4,000 trees by the end of May. Other
activities include:
• Green Offers for Your Business:
Special coupons and offers on products
with environmentally preferable
attributes are available for download at
www.officedepotgrowgreener.com.
• Featured Green Products: More than
6,500 eco-preferable office products
are highlighted at the site, including
those that can help save resources,
fuel and energy and help reduce harsh
chemicals, such as compact fluorescent
lightbulbs, rechargeable batteries and
energy-efficient printers and laptops.
Additional details on greener products
are at www.officedepot.com/buygreen.
• Trade-In, Trade-Up Event: The 400
Ton Challenge is a new promotion
that can help customers get money
back for their old electronics, ink
and toner. Plus, in recognition of the
40th anniversary of Earth Day, Office
Depot is aiming to collect 400 tons
of products in a month to prevent
e-waste from ending up in landfills.
Customers can continue to recycle as
many as 20 of their old ink and toner
cartridges and get money back in
Worklife Rewards. Details are at www.
officedepotgrowgreener.com.
• Green Facebook Page: To highlight
its “Grow Greener” message, green
ideas and pledges and a new green
initiative as part of the company’s
NASCAR sponsorship, the chain is
expanding its Facebook page at www.
facebook.com/OfficeDepot. There,
you can also see the company’s own
associates tell how they integrate
environmental efficiencies and
initiatives into their work.
Office Depot has long been recognized
as an environmental leader in the
office products industry. It has
won the Office Products Industry
Environmental Reseller of the Year
Award for 3 years running. It has
also made the industry’s deepest
commitment to green buildings, with
a LEED Gold Certified Prototype
Store, a Global Headquarters Building
pursuing LEED for Existing Buildings,
and a commitment to pursuing LEED
for Commercial Interiors for every new
store built in 2010.
