Forty eight schools are being recognized this year; four schools have been part of the program for more than a decade. Virginia Naturally Schools must meet specific requirements which increase with each suc- cessive year a school achieves this recognition. This is the 3 d year Castlewood High School School Bucks at The School Bucks Program 2012-2013 was very successful for Copper Creek Elementary School.

SaNrday, Closed Sunday, 2-5 pm • M6nday 12-7 pm Tuesday 12-5:30 pm Wednesday 12-5:30 pm TOPS offers outdoor tips for The chill in the air can put a will provide better traction and damper on your outdoor work- out routine, but it doesn't have to stop you in your tracks. There are simple ways to keep your fitness going strong through the fall and approaching winter months. TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) the non- profit weight-loss support organ- ization offers the following tips for how to have a safe and effective cool weather workout routine. 1. Dress in layers. For best results, wear layers that can be removed and put back on as needed. Start with a thin layer of synthetic material such as poly- propylene, which "wicks" sweat away from the body. For a mid- dle layer, add fleece for insu- lation. Top with a waterproof, breathable layer. A good rule of thumb is to dress for a day 20 degrees warmer; this allows for the body heat generatl by exercising. Wind makes a cold day feel colder, so knowing the wind chill factor can help exercisers plan what to wear on breezy days. 2. Get the right gear. Trail- running shoes with deeper treads help •prevent slipping on wet or icy roads and sidewalks, no matter the activity, qome styles are water-resistant and have removable spikes on the outsole. Irvesting in a set of winter cleats, which slip on over your running sneakers, will also be effective. If you're exercising while it's dark out, wear reflective clothing, too. 3. Fire up. Cold temp- eratures make your body less flexible and more prone to injuries, so warm up - and cool down - indoors. Warm muscles bum fat more readily than cold muscles, resulting in muscle elasticity that helps prevent injuries. A warm-up also helps improve the function of the nervous system and the heart. Consider walking quickly around the room, doing jumping jacks, or jumping rope. 4. Skip the hills and stay safe. Whether you're running, cross-country skiing, hiking, or Snowshoeing, stick to safer routes with less risk for falls and slips. More falls occur on down- hill slopes because it's difficult to stop if you hit an icy patch. Cooking with Mildred...

Castlewood High School news Visit the new school website tapes recorded by Hannah Baker at http://chs.russell.kl2.va.us/or at www.russell.k 12.va.us CHS is going to participate in the Food City School Bucks again this year. Please register your card for Castlewood High School. If you registered in previous years, you must register your card again. Be sure to stop by the CHS library today and check out the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Clay Jensen returns - his classmate and crush - who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a f'wsthand witness to Hannah's pain, and learns the truth about himself- a truth he never waned to face. Thirteen fall fitness Sta' t lose to shelter, and don't go out alone. Having an exercise buddy is always a good idea for safety - and encouragement. It's a lot easier to work out in the chilly air when you have a committed friend waiting. 5. Don't get comfortable until after your workout. With cool temperatures and dreary weather, it's hard not to run straight to the sofa in your most comfortable clothes following a long day. Don't settle in until you've completed your workout, though. Change from your work clothes directly into workout wear when you get home to boost your motivation and deter the temptation to curl up on the couch. Or, work on getting to bed earlier so you can exercise first thing the next morning, before a busy day is more likely to crowd out your fitness rou- tine. Visitors are welcome to attend their first TOPS meeting flee of charge. Membership is affordable at just $28 per year in the US plus nominal chapter fees.
