Volunteer / She can't say she's bored FROM PAGE 1 "I've not had the opportunity to work with many young people like Jenria. She's just great. After I started here, she called out of the blue and said she'd like to do tours. A while back, I hadn't called her for a while (to come give a tour), and she called me and said, 'Hey.' " Learning skills Newcomer said volunteering gives her both an opportunity to work with children — she hopes to be a kindergarten teacher — and learn new skills. "I feel like it gives me lots of experiences," she said. "If I hadn't volunteered at Access TV, I wouldn't know how to do all that TV stuff." She's learned camera work, video editing, producing and directing. She previously created a monthly 30- minute program on her 4-H club. She's also been forced to learn organization. "I make a lot of lists," she said. "I make a new list every day. And I keep several notebooks — I try to keep a separate notebook for each activity — but sometimes things get scattered all over." And while she doesn't yet have a driver's license, transportation isn't a problem. "I have a really great mom, and my twin brother Russ drives, and we volunteer at a lot of the same places." What comes naturally Besides all the time spent volunteering for others. Newcomer also has started a spring nature camp, run out of her house. The past two years, she's managed two groups of kids age 6 to 9 for two hours a day for a week, with a planned program of nature-related activities, such as exploring a local pond. . This year, she's expanding it to include a two-day program for 4- to 5-year-olds. "I was ahead in my school work, but I needed to complete a science project," she said, explaining the beginnings of the nature camp. "I thought it would be neat to do this, and it's grown from there." MMXMMMMMSMMVVSMMSMMMMBCMC1IMMS Your friend for Life... ^ And Home and Auto. I ^^JH C Call us for insurance protection -e' lew.

They performed close order driU and operated a small infantry unit during field training.

Huriiphrey and fellow recruits' ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54- hour team effort, problem solving event which culminated with a ceremony in which the recruits were presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and were addressed as "Marines" for the first time since boot camp began. L/WNG LONGER Presented by Larry D. Mann Administrator HEALTHY THOUGHTS Recent research shows that seniors who adopt positive mental attitudes ery'oy healthier, more active lifestyles. To test this point, researchers assessed walking speed and "swing time" (the amount of time the leg is suspended in mid-stride, which is a measurement of balance) in a group of healthy men and women between the ages of 60 and 90. Each study participant was then exposed to words momentarily flashed on a computer screen that had either positive or negative connotations about age. Those exposed to the positive thought improved their walking speed and swing time, while those exposed to negative words did not improve. These results bolster the notion that a positive self-image may foster health and independence as we get older.

The study mentioned above helps to show that a slowed gait need not necessarily be an inevitable part of aging.
