The committee has received • calls from groups planning to put floats in the parade. Prizes are Ideas for school lunches By The Associated Press A big preoccupation for parents is ensuring that children eat a healthful meal during school lunch hour. Basically, it's a question of reconciling the principles of nutritionally sound eating with the kids' craving for favorites that score heavily in the fun-food category The good news; With a little ingenuity, lunch can easily become an occasion to work more grain foods, such as bread, and fruit and vegetables, into children's diets. "When it comes to quick, nutritious and versatile lunch-box meals that meet a picky eater's criteria, sandwiches are the natural choice," said Judi Adams, registered dietitian and president of the nonprofit -Whant Foods Council. ^. : "Bread as the base of a meal offers a great source of complex carbohydrates for energy and key nutrients for growth and development. What's more, the Food Guide Pyramid recommends we get six to 11 servings each day from the grain foods group, and bread is just one way to help children meet their grain food needs." Sandwiches are a versatile food preparation. Involve children by letting them choose their favorite sandwich bread at the grocery store and by brainstorming about serving ideas the night before. Some suggestions for lunch-box contents: —Instead of peanut butter and jelly, try peanut butter and banana. Spread the peanut butter on both slices of bread, and add thinly sliced bananas. —Add a smile by serving a favorite sandwich with a raisin or cereal happy face; press raisins or toasted cereal onto the outside of a finished sandwich to depict the beaming face. ' —Use a rolling pin to flatten one or two slices of bread. Spread low-fat cream cheese and fruit preserves onto bread and roll to .create "bread wraps." Pack in a plastic container to prevent them, squishing out of shape. —Try a "clucker!" Chop cooked chicken and shred raw carrots, then mix in low-fat mayonnaise and spread between two slices of bread. Liven up the lunch box from time to time with one of these inclusions: —Cut out a paper heart, place on top of thtV sandwich and wrap with pink cling wrap, for a special love note. —Write a riddle on a napkin and have your child share the answer at the end of the day. —Enclose an extra treat for your child to share with a friend. awarded in three categories. The Open Division has a top prize of $500, followed by $400, $300, $200, $100 and $50 prizes. The Junior Division has a top prize of $125, $75 and $50. The winning commercial float will receive the Gerald Hoefferle Memorial trophy. Hoefferle was one of the original founders of the festival. Floats to be judged should be in the area of the elementary school grounds and parking lot by noon Sunday. . Following the parade, a concert by some of the bands will be at the reviewing stand. At 4 p.m., the gates open for the annual Communityfest at the Ontonagon Recreation Center. The afternoon and evening of music, food, beverages, and games is sponsored by the Ontonagon Men's Club.

The race attracts many UW-Extension to get new logo Kiddies Parade annually brings °f the premier runnere-in the Upper Peninsula, as well as many returning former residents and alumni. Registration is at 9 a.m. and the race starts at 10. The festival is sponsored by donations from the business community and this year by the sale of tickets. . Anyone with questions concerning the festival can contact Jan Tucker, festival secretary. Successful organizations know a strong visual identity is among the most valuable assets. This is also the case for the University of Wisconsin-Extension. UW-Extension is unveiling a new institutional logo that will be featured on all stationery, bulletins, and other Extension educational materials. It conveys an exciting, forward-looking, energetic new look for the 21st century. It replaces the old Extension logo that featured an outline of the state of Wisconsin encircled by the words "University of Wisconsin-Extension." "Introducing a new graphic symbol for UW-Extension is an important sign to the state and our customers we are changing, that we are vigorous, innovative and preparing for the 21st Century," according to A! Beaver, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Extension. The idea for a new logo grew out the need to develop a symbol for the new The Py!e Center in Madison which will house Extension resources. The center's benefactors, Thomas and Judy Pyle, offered the services of their former Rayovac designer, Ric Suchanek, who worked with. UW-Extension staff to visually link The Pyle Center with UW- Extension. They discovered at least 68 other entities in Wisconsin use the state outline as part of their logo, making the old Extension logo not very distinctive. The Iron County UW-Extension Office expects that the new logo will be fully phased into their materials by Oct. 1. Casino Day a 'success' The Ironwood Senior Center's first Casino Day was deemed a "a great success," according to a spokesperson. Many prizes were awarded. The Wheel of Fortune, which everyone had to spin as they entered the dining room, kicked off the games. Then there was rou-t lette, 7-11 dice, blackjack and bingo-keno. Prizes were donated by local merchants. If it wasn't for their donations, Casino Day would not have been possible. The grand prize was a handmade sweater donated by the Yarn Barn. It was awarded to John Priante. "Everyone had a great meal and a lot of fun with the games. We look forward to having another Casino Day, possibly in March," the spokesperson said.
