"Take Small Steps to Health and Wealth', will be offered through the Sidney Adult Edu- cation program starting Jan.19 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for three weeks. This nationwide program, developed by Rutgers Cooperative Extension, will be pre- sented by Judy Johnson, Richland Extension agent. The class begins by showing the simi- larities between health and financial issues. Many times the same behavior-change can be used to improve one's health or personal fi- nances or both. Twenty-five behavior-changing strategies will be presented. Several strategies include using the power of 10, think balance-not sac- rifice, step down to change, kick it up a notch and expecting obstacles - preparing for re- lapses. Participants are asked to set a few goals, pick a few strategies and put them into ac- tion. It's been said, "If it is to be, it's up to me". To register, call Sidney High School at 433- 2330.

Movie night to highlight Darfur crisis To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Sid- ney/Richland County Public Library will host a documen- tary viewing and discussion about the violent conflict in Darfu. The library chose to spet- light this international crisis because King is an icon in the struggle for human rights of the marginalized, and the sit- uation in Darfur is one of the most pressing human rights issues of today. Darfur, the western region of Sudan, has been the site of a violent con- flict since 2003. The Sudanese government is accused of aiding Janjaweed (horseback militia) in destroying vil- lages, killing thousands and displacing millions more. The area is believed by hu- man rights groups to be the site of one of the most seri- ous humanitarian crises in the world. The library is hosting an informational evening with Darfur Now, a documentary about the conflict, and an in- formal discussion to follow on Jan. 21 at 7 pm. Informa- tion will also be available at the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Social Monday from 4-7 p.m. at the Community Ser- vices Building. The library will have books and other materials about the conflict on display the week of the event. Popcorn will be provided and attendees are welcome to bring drinks with lids.
