Children's Author Anna Lee Everhart Gets Kids Moving

Children's Author Anna Lee Everhart Gets Kids Moving

Obesity in children is increasing at an alarming rate. With parents working harder and technology making entertainment less physical and more mental, children—even at a very young age— are sitting at computers, playing video games, or watching TV or movies instead of being active. But children’s book author, Anna Lee Everhart, is trying to do her part in affecting a change. According to the website www.stop-childhood-obesity.com obesity affects between 16 to 33 percent of children and adolescents, and over the past 30 years, the obesity rate for children ages 2 to 5 has more than doubled. Everhart, who is a Kindermusik teacher, writer, and mother of two, knows from experience that music and stories can get kids moving and playing. She focuses her creative work on writing stories that will get kids running, dancing, jumping—exercise!—and away from sedentary activities.

Make Thanksgiving dinner a safe one: Turkey fryers not worth the risk

Make Thanksgiving dinner a safe one: Turkey fryers not worth the risk

Hall County -  The Hall County Fire Services Department says that turkey fryers are not worth the risk.  Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and fire-related injuries, and on Thanksgiving Day the number of home fires is threefold.  Below is a community press release from the Hall County Fire Department.

 

Thanksgiving or other holidays this time of year can be a whirlwind of cooking and entertaining guests.   With so much multitasking taking place, fire hazards around the oven or stove-top can easily be overlooked. Of particular concern is the safety of children. "People may not be used to have these small guests in their home," said Capt. Scott Cagle, Hall County Fire Marshal. "The kitchen is not a place to play, and adults should establish a 3-foot child-free zone around the stove."
