aS SIDNEY HERALD ................ IIII I11/III]/lUHIII/ Taking time to enjoy, relax I don't usually have time to sit down to watch television, but a couple of nights ago I was rather tired and found my way to the recliner with the remote control. I actually took a break! I don't flip through the channels unless I'm at the television by myself, or I'm there first. My family sees to it that a station is picked, and they watch what they want. I did get a chance to watch some holiday ice-skating. It's very relaxing, and it in- trigues me to watch those people skate across the ice on a solid blade of steel. That's the only tool holding them between shear ice and the sole of the shoe. The muscles in their ankles have to be pretty strong. Roller-skat- ing is one thing, but to skate on ice is another. Winter sports for me bt's chat are only to watch through a Oeniece Schwab screen on the televi- sion. I'm not a very daring per- son, and I'm defmitely not adventuresome. I have enough trouble walking, let alone putting any speed be- hind the step. I admire those who do step quickly (or slide)! As I keep my feet to the ground, I want wish you hap- py shopping (which is a chore in itself)or whatever it is you've got on the list of "to- do's."

L 0 n s d ale U nit e d hn:r'n"tsfrus'wearevery Many women have Methodist Longtime members of Lonsdale United Methodist Church, Bill and Betty Rounce, Sidney, wintered in San Antonio, Texas, in 1993 Where Betty learned to make sets of the three kings at a Methodist church in their snow- bird town. Betty brought back the idea to Lonsdale United Methodist Church, Sidney, and a group decided to make the kings. This project has turned out to be a fund-raiser for church projects, mis- sions, etc. "We started in April of 1994," Rounce said. "From the start in 1994 until now, we've made close to 300 sets. We've received orders from seven different states and two foreign coun- tries." Most of the materials.t $ed are do- nated froml %O, and ve.ry few items are purchased. "The only thing we purchase is the head and hands," Rounce said. "I repaint the heads when we get those in. We're having a little trouble fmdiug those, ff anyone knows of a supplier, let us know." A dish soap bottle works as the body for the king. Coat hangers are used for the arms. "Dale Wilson glues the heads to the bodies," Rounce said. "You can't imag- ine what we use on the kings. There's a lot of effort that goes into the making these sets."

"Our hus- bands tease us and say, 'ff you'd just chuck this project and go to work in the beet fields, you'd come out ahead,' but we have a lot of fun doing this."

As nature's vita- min pills, they are packed with nu- trients that help fight winter colds and infections. As nature's fast foods, they are perfect to eat-on-the- run during the hectic holiday sea- son. As nature's bountiful rainbow, they can brighten any festive table. Unfortunately, only one in four American adults gets the minimum five to nine dally servings of fruits and veggies for optimal health. Here are 10 tasty ways you can change that and enjoy all the colors of holi- day health. RED: Slice a red pepper onto a holi- day pizza dinner; sprinkle dried cranberries into a spinach salad; stir tomato sauce and diced tomatoes in- to heart-warming chili. GREEN: Toss a festive salad with baby spinach leaves and lettuce in every shade of green: Romaiiae let- tuce, Boston lettuce, Bibb lettuce and butter lettuce. WHITE: Use a cookie cutter to cre- ate turnip, rutabaga or jicama stars for a seasonal vegetable tray; grab a banana for dashboard or desktop dining opportunities. GOLD: Mash yukon gold potatoes with light sour cream for a favorite holiday comfort food; bake acorn or winter squash with a little olive oil and brown sugar. YELLOW: Saut summer squash and/or yellow peppers into a zesty vegetable medley; serve canned pineapple slices as a garnish or a naturally sweet dessert. ORANGE: Pour orange juice (cal- cium-fortified) into a morning juice glass; peel an orange for a refreshing snack; stir a can of mandarin or- anges into a fruit salad. PINK: Enjoy half a pink grapefruit morning, noon or night; pour pink grapefruit juice into some apple juice for a layered "mocktair' in sun- set hues. BLUE: Sprinkle fresh blueberries into a bowl of cereal; add dried blue- PURPLE: Put flesh plums (lemon, vored prunes) lunch; include eggplant Asian stir-t . Eat the color way, every timal health, keep your eye prize- five to nine the year. The spirit of ( hristmas past can make a eat present. The celebration of Christmas is a time to honor old traditions. A framed print is a great gift that captures the feeling of the holidays. And by sharing it with friends and family, you may find yourself starting a new tradition as well. :116 E MAIN SIDNEY Trains & Lionel, AtlaS l &
