With the Acceptance program, we’re offering people the opportunity to have brand-new furniture in their home as opposed to buying used or getting something that has been previously rented. It’s just a good feeling to have, knowing that you’re the first owner of something like that.” Also, the Acceptance program can foster loyalty from a customer to a store. “Someone can come in the store,” Matt says, “and instead of being intimidated or disappointed because they don’t qualify on a traditional credit system, they’ll get what they came for and think, ‘Tose people really helped me.’ It creates repeat customers.”  Te RAC Acceptance program was put in place at the Winchester store based on its success in the Hampton-bas Hampton-based ed franchise’s six other stores. As with other Acceptance program kiosks, the one at Roberts is located in the front of the store so as to ingratiate the store staff directly with

Te really nice part is that if they make their payments on time each month, we report it to the credit bureaus so that they can establish or re-establish their good standing.” And since there are no up-front credit checks (they don’t even run a credit check at the store) no one is going to be turned down. “It’s a good option

Romney continues long march to GOP nomination  A swing state, Va. likely likely to be major battle ground this Fall  By Jonathan Lucci Frederick County Report   After a long, agonizing winter and early spring the Republican primary voters appear to have finally aligned themselves behind embattled frontrunner Mitt Romney. Romney ’s victories in the Maryland and D.C primaries uesday were expected given those state’s demographics and voting patterns. His victory in Wisconsin, particularly after  victories in Michigan and Ohio, was much more hard-fought and severely undercut the arguments of his main rivals that he cannot win over the base of the party.

Just when we thought things were getting g etting better . . .  Did new council appointments appointments violate state open meeting laws?

However, at issue with a 1985 Virginia Attorney General’s opinion is the fact the paper-ballot rankings done in open meeting to choose the nominees to be voted on for approval did not include the councilors’

also noted the ranking ballots are available for review. However, there are no names on the ballots, so no one knows which ballot belongs to which councilor. Tat is what led Barrigan to question whether the selection process was technically “secret” rather than open. own Manager Joan Roche is looking into the issue. In the case of the six candidates for the two open council seats, the councilors were given a ballot with all six names on it. Te councilors ranked each candidate, with six being their top pick and one being their last. After the first vote, the ballots

 voting by members of a public body constitutes a violation of the open meeting requirements of the Act. See Reports of the Attorney General: 1982-1983 at 723, 82-83 Va. AG

While the attorney generals’ opinions cited above do not carry the force of law, they do set precedence for the interpretation of the act. If found to have violated the act, council may be subject to liability. Interestingly, the council properly moved, seconded, and voted on the appointees at the meeting, so the actual appointments are most likely legal. Other business

Encouraging good hygiene habits for tweens  With school, sports, friends and hobbies, today’s tweens lead busy and active lives, and sometimes they don’t take the time -- or know -- to practice pr actice good hygiene. While discussing proper hygiene with your tween can be difficult, it is possible to address the topic without making him or her feel uncomfortable or self-conscious. One approach parents can take is to appeal to your tweens’ growing maturity by making it clear that these self-care tasks are their responsibility. Giving your tween the respect and encouragement to make their own choices in these transitional years can help them develop healthy habits for life. To help empower your tween to take better care of their hygiene, parents can follow these tips: Make it Fun: The tween years are all about finding a unique sense of style. This also applies to cosmetics and accessories. Allow your tween to choose their shampoos, soaps and oral care products. This will encourage them to take interest in their hygiene without you having to ask. Brace Face: Tooth brushing can be a struggle at this age. Your child may go in the bathroom for 30 seconds and declare that he or she has brushed. Kids should know that good oral care is just as important as taking a shower, especially if your child has braces. Make the process a little easier and ensure they are brushing for the proper p roper amount of time by keeping a two minute timer in the bathroom. By supp supplying lying your tween with products in the flavors (e.g. not-too-spicy, not-too-sweet) and cool designs they will like, such as the Crest Pro-Health FOR ME Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste, they might even forget they are doing something healthy and those two minutes will fly! “Oral health is an important issue particularly for kids in their adolescent years. Tooth decay is still recognized as the most common chronic disease affecting children in the United States. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 51 million hours of school are lost each year due to dental-related illness1,” says Dr. Jennifer Salzer, orthodontist, dentist and mother of a tween. “Not only can poor oral hygiene affect the health and well-being of a child, it also plays a role in self-esteem.” Under Armor: Puberty is the first time adolescents have to deal with body odor. Help your tween understand how to control odors by explaining the difference between deodorant, which controls bacteria while adding fragrance, and antiperspirant, which stops or limits sweating. Remind your tween that both deodorant and antiperspirant will help if they put it on before they start sweating, not after. Skincare 101: Changing hormones typically bring about oilier skin, especially on the nose and forehead. Teach your tween to wash their face once or twice a day with a cleanser and discourage them from picking, as this causes inflammation and scarring. Lead by Example: Whether they admit it or not, your tween notices your habits. Set an example by showing that a healthy hygiene routine is important to you too.

With the economy on the rebound after the country’s worst financial times in decades, many a smart vehicle owner i s looking to get more bang for their vehicle buck. In lieu of quick t rade-ins, more and more vehicle owners are applying the lessons they learned from the recession to their vehicles and trying to make their purchases last longer.  According to the automotive experts experts at the non-profit non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Service Excellence Excellence (ASE), today’s vehicles are designed with long-lasting reliability i n mind, making it easier for vehicle owners to get more and more out of their vehicle purchase. To do just that, consider the following tips courtesy of ASE. * Find a repair shop that suits your needs. Motorists often cite the difficulty in finding a reliable mechanic they feel they can trust. A courteous staff that’s willing to answer your questions is a good starting point, as is a shop that’s displaying the ASE sign or logo, which indicates the shop employs certified technicians. Also, check the shop walls for any past commendations, including civic, community or customer service awards. It’s also a good idea to check what vehicles the mechanics are currently working on. If the vehicles in the parking lot are equal in value to your own, that’s a good sign. * Do the small things to save fuel. The cost of fuel is among the highest costs associated with owning a vehicle. But small t hings like ensuring tires are properly inflated, replacing misfiring spark plugs and even clearing the trunk of clutter can all increase fuel efficiency and help your bottom line in the process. * Give your engine a break. Cars aren’t all that different f rom the human body in that everything i s directly or indirectly connected as a system. Just like a body can overcompensate in one area when another area is injured, a car’s engine will be forced to overcompensate when there are deficiencies in other areas. For example, a clogged air filter or fouled spark plug makes combustion less efficient, which reduces power -- and wastes fuel as well. Motorists can give their engine a break by replacing clogged filters, sticking to their vehicle maintenance schedule and routinely checking fluid levels.

Fun facts about earthworms  There are more than 2,700 different types of earthworms residing on the planet. Earthworms are often known to be workhorses in the garden, helping to aerate and fertilize the soil while filling it with nutrients. Earthworms recycle materials like dead leaves, decaying animals and feces so new plant seedlings can grow and have the process begin anew. Worms have been around for 120 million years -- one of the few species of insects that have stood the test of time. In just one acre of soil, there may be a million or more earthworms turning over the soil and chewing on organic matter. Without earthworms, most plants would not thrive. Earthworms have mucous covering their bodies in order to stay moist. This helps them to breathe through their skin. You may have noticed that after it rains worms appear on sidewalks and outside of their underground burrows. This is not because they are drowning underground, but because the environment is moist after it rains, making it moreconducive for worms to breathe and move around to find mates. Normally the dry conditions above ground make them dry out and die. Earthworms can be remarkable creatures to watch. Contrary to popular belief, worms do have a mouth and an opposite end for waste removal that is not interchangeable.

Te Last Day of School Changed to June 6  Te Frederick County School Board has voted to amend the 2011-12 school calendar and move the last day of the school  year from from Ju June ne 12 to June June 6. Te d decision ecision comes as a result result of the school system not using all five of the inclement weather days that were built into the original 2011-12 school calendar. Assistant Superintendent for Administration Al Orndorff says, “Te Code of Virginia requires students to attend school for at least 180 days. Te School Board adopts a calendar each year which includes 180 instructional days, plus five additional days to account for possible school closings due to inclement weather. Tis winter, we only used one of the five inclement weather days that were built into the calendar. Tat allowed us to recommend that the Board amend the school calendar and move the last day of school back by four instructional days.” As a result of the Board’s action, the last day of school for stu-

  As the Black Plague was sweeping Europe during the Middle Ages, some people, for reasons surpassing understanding, believed that plague victims could cure themselves by smelling human waste.

  If you’re planning to travel to Washington state with nefarious plans, here’s an interesting law to keep in mind: Any motorist with criminal intent is required to stop before entering a town and inform the chief of police of his or her presence.


  Are you more afraid of lightning or sharks? If you look at the numbers, it makes more sense to fear lightning; more than three times as many people die from lightning strikes than do so in shark attacks.

tended to be used in shoes. •••   If you’rree familiar with the Disney film “Cinderella,” you might be surprised to learn some details about the Grimm brothers’ version of the folktale. In their story, Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters are so desperate to marry the prince that they mutilate their feet in order to try to make them fit in the slipper (which, in the Grimm version, is made of gold, not glass). Also, at the wedding of Cinderella and her prince, the stepsisters’ eyes are plucked out by pigeons.

In less than a year, all Social Security payments will be made electronically. Ninety percent of us who receive benefits already get them that way. Te remaining 10 percent are being asked to make the change now and not wait until the last minute. Te deadline is March 1, 2013, and applies to more than just Social Security. Veterans, railroad retirees, Social Security Income recipients and those who receive Office of Personnel Management benefits are included. It’s said that going paperless will save the government $1 billion over 10 years. We can choose how we’ll receive our money -- either direct deposit to our existing bank account or a Direct Express debit card. So which should you pick? If you have a bank account, the money will be automatically deposited

each month. If you don’t have a bank account, the money will appear each month on the Direct Express debit card. It can be used like a regular debit card, but you only get one AM withdrawal each period, and there can be fees for other services. You’ll also need to remember your Personal Identification Number (PIN) when you use the card. When you’re ready to make the switch to electronic payments, you can do it either online [] or by phone at 1-800-333-1795. If you want to sign up for the debit card, you’ll need  your Social Security number or claim number,, 12-digit federal benefit-check number number and the amount of your most recent federal benefit check. If you want direct deposit to your bank account,  you’ll need your bank’s routing transit number (the numbers on your personal check), account number and type of account, either checking or saving. ••• Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.
