School's in, so are the head lice
By Karen West
Head lice are social creatures. They love to hang out with groups of children. But, when your child comes home from school scratching his head, your first thought is "Oh, no!" It's time to break out the magnifying glass and fine-toothed comb.
Head lice is a common occurrence once children begin gathering together in day care or school. But, no matter how common it is, there is an unfortunate stigma attached to it. There is no need to panic or be embarrassed.
"Hygiene has nothing to do with whether a child becomes infested," said Carrie Randall, certified physician's assistant at the Stigler Health and Wellness Center. Transmission of head lice from one child to another can happen easily when children are so close together all day. Lice can also be spread by contact with objects belonging to an infested person such as hats, combs and brushes, pillows and headphones. It is extremely contagious, but contrary to myth, lice cannot jump or fly. (more on this story in this week's Stigler News Sentinel)
Want to own a Remington?
Church auction to benefit mission project
By Doug Russell
Combine the bargain hunter's skill at sniffing out good deals, the auction attendee's sharp wits and a love of art, and you just might find that you're able to get items that you've long been wanting.
Maybe something along the lines of a sculpture by renowned artist Frederic Remington, for example. Never mind the example, because Remington sculptures are two of the many items being offered for sale at a benefit auction to be held Oct. 9.
Every year the members of Stigler's United Methodist Church hold an auction, the proceeds of which go to support a mission located in the Cookson Hills.
This year's auction will be Oct. 9 at 1 p.m., following an 11 a.m. worship service and lunch at noon.
The Rev. Meri Whitaker will deliver the sermon for the morning worship services. She has been the missionary and director at Cookson Hills Mission for 30 years. During the lunch break, Whitaker will talk to those attending about the mission itself.
This year's auction has some special additions to it: two Remington sculptures. (more on this story in this week's Stigler News Sentinel)
