This cohort was the second in a series of cohorts funded through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training (TAACC- CT) Grant.

Next, it was time for individual student presen- tations. Students spoke about their experiences in the classes and in their clinical internships. Then, three different teams of students gave live demon- strations of compounding ointments and mixing a suspension. The students used their technology skills to create Power Point slide shows to go along with their demonstrations. The first group compounded psoriasis cream. The sec- ond group compounded diaper rash cream, and the third group mixed an APAP (acetaminophen) suspen- sion. The students gave detailed step- by-step explanations of the processes they were demonstrating. After these presenta- tions, Shaunda Proffitt spoke about the clothing allowance she and her classmates were given and about the clothing presen- tations they gave in class. Then, instructor Tammy Brown commented about the cultural day spent in Abingdon, Virginia where the class attended a play at the Barter Theatre and enjoyed dinner at Ram. Karen Gent presented perfect attendance awards to Jackie Stacy, Vicky Sweeney, and Rosanna White. Gent and Brown then presented Career Readiness Certificates and Microsoft Digital Literacy Certificates to the students. These certifications had been earned during the course of the program by taking and passing specific assessments. In closing, the students gave special thank you's and presented gifts to instructors Karen Gent and Tammy Brown and to Tim Salyers, the student coordi- nator. At the conclusion of the event, a reception was held.

Russell Extension News DONNA MEADE Family and Consumer Science When you get into the spring cleaning mode you might find that the refriger- ators and freezers need more than soap and water cleanup, especially if they have been without power for sometime during this rough winter. USDA sug- gests following these guidelines to safely remove odors from refrigerators and freezers. Refrigerators and freez- ers are two of the most important pieces of equip- ment in the kitchen for keeping food safe. We are instantly reminded of their importance when the power goes off, flooding occurs, or the unit fails, causing food to become unsafe and spoil. The odors that develop when food spoils can be difficult to remove. Use this informa- tion to learn how to remove odors from units or how to safely discard an affected unit. To Remove Odors from Refrigerators and Freezers If food has spoiled in a refrigerator or freezer and odors from the food remain, they may be diffi- cult to remove. The follow- with hot water and deter- gent. Then rinse with a san- itizing solution (1 table- spoon unscented, liquid chlorine bleach per gallon of water). Wash the interior of the refrigerator and freezer, including the door and gas- ket, with hot water and baking soda. Rinse with sanitizing solution as above. Leave the door open for about 15 minutes to allow free air circulation. If odor remains, try any or all of the following: Wipe inside of unit with equal parts vinegar and water. Vinegar pro- vides acid which destroys mildew. Leave the door open and allow to air out for sev- eral days. Stuff both the refrig- erator and freezer with rolled newspapers. Close the door and leave for sev- eral days. Remove paper and clean with vinegar and water. Sprinkle fresh cof- fee grounds or baking soda loosely in a large, shallow container in the bottom "of the refrigerator and freezer. Place a cotton swab soaked with vanilla inside the refrigerator and freezer. ing procedures may help Close door for 24 hours. but may have to be repeat- Check for odors. ed several times. Dispose of any spoiled or questionable food. Remove shelves, crispers, and ice trays. Wash them thoroughly Use a commercial product available at hard- ware and housewares stores. Follow the manu- facturer's instructions. If Odors Remain If odors cannot be removed, then the refriger- ator or freezer may need to be discarded. If you need to discard the refrigerator or freezer, discard it in a safe manner: "Childproof" old refrigerators or freezers so children do not get trapped inside. The surest way is to take the door off. If the door will not come off, chain and pad- lock the door permanently and close tightly, or remove or disable the latch com- pletely so the door will no longer lock when closed. It is unlawful in many jurisdictions to discard old refrigerators or freezers without first removing the door. Depending on where you live, your appliance will be picked up by your solid waste provider, a recycler, a retailer (if you buy a new unit), or pro- gram sponsored by local or regional utilities. http :// safety/freezer-odors O • O • • • • • 00 • 00 • • • • • Ci,ema City ".• ~O Stadi,m Theatres • Movie Hotline 276-67942 : Located in Downtown Norton, VA • " N(Z)P INDICATES A NO PASS FEATURE RIO 2 aD G NI~P ] DALLY: 7:00 PM / CAPI"AIN AMERICA: TIlE WINTER SOLDIER 3D PG-13 | DALLY: 7:~ PM | SAT-SUN: 7:00 PM j I HEAVEN IS FOR REAL PG N~P DAILY: 4:30 - 7:.00 - 9:45 PM SAT-SUN: 11:45 • 2:00 4:30 - 7:00 - 9:45 PM STARTS WEDNESDAY 4/16/14 N: 12:00 • 2:00 I 5".00 • 7:30 - 9:45 PM .~Pf TRANSCENDENCE 1:~-13 DAILY: 4:45 7:15 - 10:00 PM SAT-SUN: 11:45 - 2:15 - 4:45 7:15 • 10:00 PM N~PP RIO2G DALLY: 4:45 - 9:15 PM SAT-SUN: 12:15 • 4:45 9:15 RVI .~pp OOIJL~ R DALLY: 5:00 7:30 - 10:00 PM SAT-SUN: 12:30 • 2:45 • 5:00 7:30 • 10:00 PM N(~P GOD'S NOT DEAD lag DALLY: 4:45 7:15 • 9:45 PM SAT-SUN: 11:45 - 2:15 - 4:45 7:15 "9:45 PM DRAFT DAY PG-13 DAILY: 5:1](] 7:30 - 10:00 PM SAT-SUN: 11:45 - 2:30 - 5:00 7:30 ฐ 10:00 PM n~~ • ~Cd~ml'AIN ~ERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER ~PG-13 DALLY: 4:15- 9"45 PM SAT-SUN - 12.'~ "4:15 9:45 PM ' NฎP i" ( DIVERGENT PG-13 i DALLY: 4:00 • 6:45 • 9:45 PM i / SAT-SUN: 12:30 • 4:00 / [ 6:45" 9:45 PM J O • O O O O O O 00000 • • •0 •
