Score a touchdown with food choices from TOPS There arc man, difl'erent perspectives on whai America's favorite pastime trtlly is. Tills time of year, watching football tends to top the list. With Sun- day's schedule including "'the big game." TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), tile nonprofit weight-loss support organization, offers tips to help keep nutrition on track when cheerin,, on your fLavorite team. Have a small snack before you arrive at a party to curb your appetite. Overeating can be avoided if you don't arrive hungry. Start out with foods that will leave you feeling fuller faster, like nuts. A handful of ahnonds, containing about 160 calories, is a smart choice. Offer to bring a fruit platter or veggie tray, broth-based soup made with fresh or frozen vege- tables, flour tortillas sprinkled with parmesan cheese and baked, or sugar-fi'ee pudding to the buffet. Then youql have a health}, option to snack oil. Go easy on anything with a thick, creamy consistency like dips or casseroles. Most often these foods are high in calories and not very filling. Take a walk around the buffet and consider your choices before putting anything on your plate. If you choose to have a high-fat or high-calorie item (wings, pizza, or nachos), take only a small amount and put it on your plate last, after you've filled tip the space with healthier options. Consider guacamole! Guaca- mole is high in the "good" types of fat - mono and polyun- saturated. Guacamole is also high in beta carotene, fiber, folate, and potassium, making this a relatively guilt-free option. Limit alcohol Not only is it high in calories, alcohol causes blood sugar to drop which leads to hunger. I you do imbibe, consider light beer and stagger alcoholic beverages with non- alcoholic ones. Pick filling protein over high-carb offerings, including shrimp with cocktail sauce or smoked salmon served wk cocktail rye. TOPS Club Inc.

I -a66-NO-ATTACKS WWW.NOATTACKS.ORG :,i DON'T LET YOUR CHILD FEEL LIKE A FISH WITHOUT WATER Dominion Virginia Power warns customers about scammers demanding immediate payment of utility bills Stammers c/aim to be Dominion emplqvees, threaten to cut off power unless paid immediately Dominion does not ask for specific payment information via telephone Better Business Bureau offers tips to avoid failing for a seam Dominion Virginia Power is feel pressured for immediate warning its customers about a scam involving phone calls from a person claiming to be a company employee, demanding immediate payment of utility bills. The caller claims electric service will be cut off unless the bill is paid within a matter of hours, usually by using a pre- paid debit card such as a "Green Dot card." The caller also may claim that a problem with an electric meter could result in a fire if not immediately replaced, offering reimbursement from Dominion at a later date if payment is made nOW. Dominion may phone cus- tomers whose bills are in arrears to remind them payment is due, but never asks for specific pay- ment information--only direct- ing customers how to make a payment. The company encour- ages anyone who is improperly contacted about making a pay- ment over the phone to call 1- 866-DOM-HELP and local law enforcement officials. In addi- tion, customers should ask to see an official Dominion ID from anyone who comes to their residence and claims to be from the company. "We hope this warning will be heeded and shared so that other customers can avoid traps like this," said Gianna Clark, vice president of customer service operations. "Scams are always troubling, particularly in these difficult economic times." The scammers have been targeting Spanish-speaking cus- tomers, the elderly and busi- nesses throughout Virginia, but all customers should be aware of the possibility of being scare- reed. If you have questions or concerns about a phone call from someone claiming to be a Dominion employee, report the suspicious activity to Dominion by calling 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357). The Better Business Bureau provides these tips to avoid fallin,2 for a scare: Do your research. If you receive a call claiming to be }'tom )our utility company and "1 payment or personal informa- tion, .hang up the phone and call the customer service number on your tititity bill. For Dominion customers, that number is 1-866- DOM2HELP (!-866-366-4357). Beware of giving personal information over the phone. Never provide your Social Security number,: credit card number or banking infor- mation to anyone requesting it over the phone or at your home unless you initiated the contact and feel confident about the person with whom you are speaking. ;Use you own personal information. Always pay your bills with your own personal information; never pay your bills with information that is not your own. , Beware of the door-to- door sales approach. Never allow anyone into your home to check electrical wiring, natural gas pipes or appliances unless you have scheduled an appoint- ment or have reported a utility problem. Also, ask utility em- ployees for proper identification. Be proactive. If you have already provided infor- mation to someone claiming to offer this service, contact your bank immediately. Also contact the three national credit bureaus - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion - and , have a notation made on your account so it doesn't impact your credit rating. Inform Others. Share this information with friends and family so they do not become victims. Elderly victims are common in this type of seam, but anyone who pays a utility bill is a potential target.
