SCOUTS ASSIST WITH RECYCLING STICKERS PROJECT

Residents are advised that recycling bins are being filled with nonrecyclables. Ankeny Sanitation is unable to take it to a recycling center, and it goes to a landfill. In order to prevent this from happening, Ankeny Sanitation and the South Dallas County Landfill are teaming up with the Adel Scouts to apply stickers on the yellow lids of bins to show what does and does not go into them. The Scouts began this project on June 10. Residents are asked to leave recycling bins out front an extra day so that the sticker can be affixed to the yellow lid and to clean off the lid so the sticker will adhere properly. This project will take many weeks to complete, as there are more than 2,000 stickers that will need to be applied. Bins must be out front because the Scouts can only affix a sticker to a bin located there. This is a fundraiser for them, so the more they affix, the more

SWEET CORN FESTIVAL PARADE LENGTHENED

The Adel Chamber of Commerce Sweet Corn Festival Committee, in conjunction with the Adel Kiwanis Club, has decided to expand the official festival parade route this year. The expansion will allow for spectators to more comfortably view the parade. It is hoped that the change will reduce congestion on Main Street while allowing people to view the parade on Prairie Street. The new route will also allow for an easier transition onto Highway 6 at the 14th Street intersection. The starting point of the parade on Brickyard Road will not

change. No preregistration is required. Parade line-up will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Brickyard Road and the parade will

BACKYARD SAFETY TIPS

A new study finds parents are underestimating the dangers lurking for children in their own backyards this summer, and the five most dangerous activities include trampolines, monkey bars, open balconies, slides and swing sets. Independence Day marked a strong return for backyard parties, but only 19% of parents surveyed expressed backyard safety concerns. Yet the government reported a steady rise in fatal child drownings, and 63% of summer-related-injuries impact children ages 2-11.  SafeHome.org released a study called the 2021 Summer Home Safety Report using the most recent data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and a survey of more than 450 parents. Here are the five most dangerous activities and tips for parents to prevent injury: 1. Trampolines: No. 1 most emergency room visits per year with 3,193. To avoid injury, check that bolts are tight, install a safety net enclosure, put padding over the frame and springs, and set jumping rules with adult supervision. 2. Monkey bars: No. 2 most emergency room visits per year with 2,804. To avoid injury, make sure the child has enough upper body strength to swing, place padding underneath to soften any falls, check for loose bolts and wood splinters. 3. Open porches and balconies: No. 3 most emergency room visits

per year with 2,793. To avoid injury, install safety netting or plastic guards to cover spaces between rails. Use safety gates at the top and bottom of stairs. 4. Slides: No. 4 most emergency room visits per year with 1,618. To avoid injury, do not go down the slide with your child in your lap, teach your child to go down feet first and remove any dangerous debris from the landing spot. 5. Swing sets: No. 5 most Family owned since 1950 23589 Nantucket Road, Adel 993-3426 www.lenhartdm.com

emergency room visits with 1,469. To avoid injury, tighten equipment before use, ignore pleas from your child to push them too high. As for pools, drowning is the No. 1 cause of death for kids 1-4 outside of birth defects, and built-in pools result in 382 emergency room visits per year. To avoid injury, develop house rules, have an adult chaperone, and install fencing to avoid young children falling into the pool by accident.

UNDERSHIRTS, UNDERWEAR OR SOCKS

“What do you want for your birthday, Dad?” That’s a question I receive from my kids this time of year. And, each year, I give them the same answer: “How about undershirts, underwear or socks?” “That’s really boring,” they reply in unison. To which I say, “But that’s what I want.” Then they buy me something more fun — like a remote-controlled toy truck — and I go out shopping for undershirts, underwear and socks. I used to buy my dad undershirts, underwear and socks. Well, actually my mom bought them for me to give to him. Regardless, he seemed to appreciate them, and I am starting to understand why. The older I get, the less I like to shop… for anything. But there are some things a guy just has to have. Like undershirts, underwear and socks.

Men used to receive neckties for their birthdays and Father’s Day, but who wears neckties today? If you do, let me know. I have dozens of them that you can have. Or maybe we can work out a trade — for undershirts, underwear or socks. Not used ones, of course. I am thrifty, but not that thrifty. Maybe if I did wear neckties, you wouldn’t be able to see my dingy undershirts. And then I wouldn’t have to buy undershirts, underwear or socks so often. Or maybe I will just get what I really want for my birthday this year, which is, of course, another remotecontrolled toy truck. See you out shopping — for undershirts, underwear and socks.
