MANISTEE — When you are in the
fourth grade there are many times when
seeing something is actually believing it.
Students at Kennedy Elementary
School had the opportunity this week
to get an up close and personal look at
some of Michigan’s amphibians thanks
to the efforts of Jim McGrath of Nature
Discovery. He brought up seven different
kinds of amphibians for the students to
view including black snakes, blue racers,
frogs, turtles and more.
The whole idea behind the visit was to
give the students a better understanding
of the role amphibians play in our world.
Many times people go for years without
seeing some of the 52 species located in
Michigan, and McGrath gives the students
not only the opportunity to see them, but
to touch them in some instances.
“You can use the knowledge you learn
today when you walk out the door of your
house because now you know about these
things, and how they are in your environ-
ment,” said McGrath.
McGrath is a wildlife biologist and a
graduate of Michigan State University
who has been putting on these presenta-
tions for the past 22 years. He puts on an
exhibit that holds the children’s interest,
but also allows them to learn a great deal

about the subject matter
in the process. He point-
ed out that many of the
exhibits they do aren’t
only for the kids.
“This is all we do,
and we have 42 of the 52
amphibians in Michigan
located by our house
in Williamston,” said
McGrath. “We do shows
(for) all ages and they
can be tailored to any
level.
“We have this huge
captive collection of
reptiles and amphibians
that we use for educa-
tional purposes. We
brought with us today
a sampling of frogs,
salamanders, turtles and
snakes that are native to
this area.”
He said that the main
focus of what they do is
to educate people about
the wildlife they might
encounter in the state,
and the proper way to
interact with them. He
also shows audiences the

Elementary School.
wildlife that people don’t
have to fear, and the best
way to approach them if
they come in contact with
that particular species.
“I teach them about how
they are native to this area,
and misconceptions about
them — especially about the
snakes versus the reality,”
said McGrath.
During his visit to
Kennedy Elementary
school, students had the
chance to touch black
snakes. They also had the
chance to see blue racers
and other snakes up close.
Students also were given
an education on the dif-
ferent types of frogs in the
state and how they differ in
sound and lifestyle.
“We want this to be
something that the kids
don’t only learn from, but
to go home and teach peo-
ple about this because it is
something not in their nor-
mal schooling. There is a lot
to teach parents about these
things,” said McGrath.
It proved to be another
hands-on lesson that goes
beyond the classroom and
teaches students how to see
nature up close and per-
sonal.
NATURE: From Page 1
The need to
develop a
retirement plan
NORTH AMERICAN
PRECIS SYNDICATE
Preparing for retirement
can be a challenging pro-
cess — and emerging trends
are not helping matters.
Fortunately, developing a
retirement plan can help.
That’s the word from
experts who say changes
in employee benefits, lon-
ger life spans, uncertainty
with Social Security and
Medicare and the rising
cost of health care have
made funding retirement
more difficult.
With most of the
responsibilities for finan-
cial aspects of retirement
now falling squarely on
the shoulders of individu-
als, the key, according to
Insured Retirement
Institute President and
CEO Cathy Weatherford,
is to have a comprehensive
plan that addresses both
retirement income and
expenses-including health
care.
National Retirement
Planning Week was created
to remind consumers of
the importance of having
a plan for funding their
retirement.
For those needing help,
a professional financial
advisor can assist when
creating a road map toward
attaining financial security.

NORTH AMERICAN
PRECIS SYNIDCATE
What is your skin tell-
ing you? Did you spend a
lot of time in the sun last
summer? What about the
summer before that? Sun
exposure on unprotected
skin year after year may
leave you with more than a
few freckles.
Sunburns and moles
aren’t the only indication
that skin has been damaged.
After years of exposure to
the sun, you may discover
red spots that feel rough, dry
or scaly and don’t go away,
even after using moistur-
izer. Sometimes called “sun
spots” or mistaken for age
spots, these patches could
be actinic keratosis (AK), a
skin condition that can lead
to squamous cell carcinoma
(SCC), a nonmelanoma form
of skin cancer.
It is estimated that
AK affects up to 58 mil-
lion Americansi, yet most
people are unaware of its
symptoms and association
with sun damage. Because
AK is a result of cumula-
tive sun exposure, it can
take years to develop. A job
that requires a substantial
amount of time outside or
everyday activities such
as gardening, exercise or
attending outdoor sport-
ing events can lead to sun
damage if your skin isn’t
adequately protected.
People at high risk are
often fair-skinned men and
women over the age of 40
who may have accumulated
a significant amount of sun
exposure over the course of
many years.
One in five Americans
will develop skin cancer in
the course of their lifetimeii,
and AKs have the potential
to progress to squamous cell
carcinoma, the second most
common type of skin can-
cer. It’s important to check
your skin year-round and
note any changes in texture
and color—these changes
may be age spots, irritation
or dry skin, but they may
also require more attention.
According to the
National Institutes of
Health, specific characteris-
tics of AK includeiii:
nA skin patch or
growth, often limited to one
area, that begins as flat and
scaly;
nPresence on the face,
scalp, back of the hands,
chest or other sun-exposed
areas;
nA color that can be
gray, pink, red or the same
color as the skin;
nLater development
into a hard and wart-like or
gritty, rough and “sandpa-
pery” surface;
nIn some cases, the
lesions may be easier to feel
than to see.
For more information on
how to find out what your
skin is telling you, see your
doctor and visit www.listen-
toyourskin.org.
If your skin could talk, what would it say?

tips
NORTH AMERICAN
PRECIS SYNIDCATE
Who doesn’t love the
movies? Everyone feels
like a kid at the concession
counter looking for the
perfect treat. With a little
simple planning, you can
enjoy the action on screen
while avoiding the fear of
an expanding waistline.
“Whether you crave
something chewy, sweet,
sour or chocolaty, there’s
always a better-for-you
option,” says Registered
Dietitian Julie Upton, MS,
RD, co-founder of www.
AppforHealth.com, a lead-
ing resource for nutrition
information provided exclu-
sively by nutrition profes-
sionals.
nDrink water instead of
sugary sodas to avoid extra
empty liquid calories.
nOpt for dark choco-
late-covered nuts or fruit.
Nuts and raisin snacks are
nutrient rich and dark choc-
olate provides antioxidants
and health benefits.
nFor a “fruitier” chew,
consider Welch’s Fruit
Snacks. They contain real
fruit and 100 percent of the
recommended daily intake
for vitamin C.
nAlways check the
serving size on the package
and share when the package
is oversized.
Now, sit back and enjoy
the show.
