I November 19, 2012 The Star Page 11 NOSU EXTENSION SERVICE Tips to having a better holiday Christmas and New Year are just around the corner. We have all seen holiday decorations and promotions. With the biggest shopping day of the year occun'ing this coining weekend, it is time to do some planning, if you haven't already done so. Planning ,yore" holiday spending will give you the adwmtage of being more in con- lrol of your holiday spending and help reduce financial anxiety so you can truly enjoy the upcolning New Year. " Ten tips for a better holiday. " 1. Begin by deciding how much .money you have to work with. This includes cash on band earmarked R)r holiday spending, additkmal money vailable between now and the holi- days, and what you feel comfortable charging : 2. Establish a spending limit, in- ,eluding gifts, parties, cards, food and $tra'vel expenses. * 3. Plan what you are going to buy and stick to your lists. 4. Keep track of all spending and charging. Investing in a small note- book to log these would be a worthy tool. 5. Stick to one credit card. if any, and plan how you will pay off the ibalance. If you have more than one 'credit card and don't plan to pay the 'entire amount off in one month, se- .lect the card with the lowest interest 'rate. 6. Beware of "buy now, pay later" offers; only charge what you would spend if you were to pay cash for the ,bitems today. 7. Suggest your falnily participate in a pick-a-name gift exchange to re- ;duce the number of gifts everyone "needs to purchase. 8. Consider making or baking a gift for the postal worker, hairdresser, and county road maintenance worker [or other service providers. • 9. Host lunch or coffee/tea socials or potluck-style meals rather than elaborate complete meals. • 10. Give time instead of monetary !gifts. Share coupons for an evening iof child care, lessons or help with a 7project or an invitation to a home- cooked meal.

Its mission is to help youth become sell-directed, productive, contribut- ing members of their communities. A 4-H club is made up of five or more youth from three or more families. Clubs normally meet one to two times a month. Meetings include a business meeting, learning opportu- nities, project work, demonstrations. and social time. The purpose is to provide positive youth development opportunities to help young people to experience belonging, mastery, inde- pendence and generosity, and to fos- ter educational opportunities tied to the NDSU knowledge base. Clubs typically conduct a mini- mum of six regular meetings per year. Many hold nine to twelve regu- lar meetings throughout the year, often supplemented by project meet- ings, camps, activity days, achieve- ment days and other 4-H learning activities. 4-H members can be in- volved in many different activities and events on local and state levels beyond their club involvement. 4-H membership is available to youth ages 8-18 as of September 1,2012, and a pre-member group entitled Cloverbuds for youth ages 5-7. Clubs choose when and where they will host meetings. They may choose to meet at a home, comnmnity center or hall, library, school, church, housing site or many other places. Youth select officers or youth leaders and learn how to conduct meetings and make and carry out group deci- sions. Clubs are asked to conduct a service project each year. Clubs are advised by adult staff or volunteer who have been screened and trained. Clubs may be Ibrmed around the interest and needs of youth in same- age or cross-age groupings using sin- gle project or multiple project formats. 4-H offers over 50 project areas from which to choose for club or individual study. The majority oi' projects areas are non-animal related. In projects specific to animals, own- ing and managing an animal is an op- tion. All projects can be completed without ownership and management of an animal. Adults and teens who are inter- ested in becoming 4-H leaders can influence the development of young people in their comlnUlfities through 4-H clubs• Club leaders have free ac- cess to leader training, leader project materials and resources for use in their club. Clubs that are planned and "'owned" by the adults and youth of a community create the most success- ful 4-H clubs.

"Our lab has (tone testing to de- termine the exact strain involved in one of the cases and it was found to be an influenza A H3 strain. That is a continues to see strain that we expect to see during flu season and a strain that the vaccine should protect against," said Vander- Busch. "Flu vaccine is plentiful this season, and because the vaccine pro- tects against these normally circulat- ing strains of influenza, getting vaccinated now will offer protection from the flu throughout the season." [t is never too late to protect your- self and those around you from the flu.
