Council cont. t'rom page 1 3040 people showed up, Jodie said. Mike said that membership in the group has now grown to 80 people The group has also had some help from UNITE, the anti-drug coalition. Jodie said thht the group meets the first Tuesday of, evening month at the Pres- ton First Church of God at 6p.m. Mayor Hunt said that he was inspired by the ef- forts of the Preston grOUp and had recently met with Sharpsburg Mayor Dorothy Clemons and Salt Hck May- or Brad FrizzeU. Wee're go- ing to see what we can get started," Hunt added. • Hunt also presented Jodie with a check for 8250 from the City of Owingsville. Mayor Hunt also gave an update on the U. S. 60/Hwy. lll/Ridgeway sewer, sys- tem expansion project. He said that the pump station and electrical sys- tem would be turned on Wednesday and tested. Fol- lowing this test, homeown- ers will be allowed to con- nect to the sewer system. Hunt said that a letter would be sent out to home- owners explaining the pro- cess of getting connected, including the 8200 connect fee for residents and $600 fee for businesses; the need to contract with a licensed plumber to connect to the system, or homeowners could connect themselves but have their work inspect- ed by a licensed plumb- ing inspector; and the need for a final inspector by the same licensed inspector. So far, 58 homeowners have already paid the con-. nection fee. Hunt added that a county ordinance requires that res- idents within 100 feet of a sewer must connect to that line and have 60 days to do so, but that for the sewer ex- tension, that deadline with be extended until June 15. Hunt noted that the sew- er extension project is not fully completed. There is a great deal of clean up that will take place, inclu grading, putting down straw, and sewing grass seed. However, Hunt said, "The project is me- chanically ready to go." Hunt also said that home- owners have largely been , supportive, patient, and co- operative with the project. • The next progress meet- ing will take place mid- March, and the discus- sion is expected to focus on effective ways to spend $100,000 in contingency funds from the project. Hunt said that they are going to look at ways toget more connections to the system and do a mandato- ry update of their facilities plan.

Martha Perkins, Bath County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences Up to 6 percent of chil- dren in the United States under age 3 have a food al- lergy, and this percentage keeps rising. It's impor- tant to be aware of food al- lergies because they can be life threatening. A food allergy is an ad- verse reaction to an other- wise harmless food or food component. The body's im- mune system is involved in the reaction. Food aller- gy symptoms usually in- volve the skin and gastro- intestinal track and may in- volve swelling or itching of the lips, mouth and/or throat. Nausea, vomiting, cramping and diarrhea may also appear. In se- vere cases, hives, swelling of the throat and difficul- ty in breathing are experi- enced. The symptoms and their severity vary among individuals. The eight foods that cause most food allergies in children are milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. Most chil- dren outgrow food aller- gies, especially to milk, eggs and soy. Food allergies can be tricky and a health profes- sional needs to make the diagnosis. Once a food al- lergy is confirmed, the only way to avoid further problems is to avoid the offending food. What can you do if your child has a food allergy? Read food labels for po- tential problems. If you don't know what an ingre- dient is, call the manufac- turer for details. Take pre- cautions to prevent the al- lergen from coming in contact with other foods and cooking utensils.
