Latham Prairie 71age Distinctive Living For Those 50+ RT. 121 & Main Street, Latham 217-433-7099 Received a communiqu6 from a resident about a few pet peeves. Pet Peeve one was, local employers letting employ- ees text while they work. I checked with a some employ- ers. One employer said they let employees text. Another said employees aren't to use cell phones or text while working unless its an emergency. A third employer said employ- ees are forbidden to use cell phones at work. Another employer requires cell phones to be in a drawer when employ- ees arrive and can cheek them only during work breaks. Pet peeve two was, employees smoking too close to entries. The employer said they meet the state requirements to the letter and no one has com- plained directly to them. As for employees parking as close to the front door as possible so customers can't. The employer was going to check into it. An occasional visitor to the office had an employment com- plaint. As a trucker, he's required to take a urine test. By the way, his hobbies include golfing and bicycling. Stop by his office at First Christian Church and intro- duce yourself. Knowing Mark, he'll offer you coffee and a bit of conver- sation. We wish him a long, happy, and successful ministry in our community. Welcome, Mark. We are blessed to have you.

He's pretty sure that if welfare recipients had to take a urine test, the welfare rolls would rapidly drop. Don't pass the urine test. Don't get any wel- fare. He's sure this will never happen. He blames political correctness. Harmful bacteria can linger on computer keyboards. I did not know this. But the issue was raised in a recent note to the paper. A research team led by Dr. Gary Noskin, med- ical director for healthcare epidemiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, suggests that those using multi- user computers should wash their hands after each use. And computer keyboards should be disinfected regularly. Dr. Philip Tierno, director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York Uni- versity Medical Center, advises that computer keyboards in schools and libraries should be disinfected several times during the day to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria. 45 Life Lessons 4 Regina Brett is 53-years-old and a long-time columnist for Ohio newspa- pers (including the Akron Beacon Jour- nal and the Cleveland Plain Dealer) who was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2009 for "her range of compelling col- umns that move the heart, challenge authority and often trigger action while giving readers deeper insight into life's challenges."
