Two local karate students were winners in area karate tour_naments recently. Mark-~ Webb won third place in men's yellow belt Kumite at the W. Va. State Championships In Cross Lanes, W. Va. Matt Rich- ards won first place at the 4th - Virginia Invitational in Charlottes- Knowing how to protect household items after a flood can reduce property losses and save many valued possessions, says Becky Ritchey, WVU Extension Agent for Home Economics and 4-H. Here are some tips: To clean wooden furniture, take it outdoors, if weather permits, but keep it out of direct sunlight. Remove as many drawers or other movable parts as possible. Do not try to pry swollen drawers or doors*~pen from the front. Instead, remove the back and push out the drawers from the back. Then clean out all mud and silt. Furniture with casters or metal caps on the tags should be prom- ptly elevated by using pieces of wood or aluminum foil to avoid staining carpet. - A garage or carport' is a good place to slowly dry out the fur- nature, but take necessary security precautions. To save bedding, brush blankets, quilts, sheets and pillowcases to remove all loose surface dirt. Rinse the bedding in lukewarm water to remove lodged soil. Then wash in lukewarm, mild detergent. Rinse and dry in sunlight. The same process applies to cleaning clothing. Refrigerators, stoves and ovens Ihould be cleaned thoroughly. To deodorize, wash with one teaspoon of baking soda in a quart of water. Moot modern refrigerators have permanently sealed cooling systems and should not be affected by flood. But switch and controls may need service. Most television sets and radios can be renovated, providing they are not energized while wet. Take extreme care when turning on motors for furnaces, pumps, washing machines, and other electrical household equipment after a flood. Silica solvents and other water displacement chemicals, sold in both liquid containers and aerosol cans, can help protect and restore all electrical appliances. Use these solvents amply after carefully read- ing instructions on the containers. Scour all utensils and, if necess- ary, use fine steel wool on un- polished surfaces. Aluminum may be brightened by scrubbing with a solution of vinegar, cream of tar- tar and hot water. The safest procedure for food is to discard all exposed to flood water except food sealed 'in metal cans. Discard metal cans that are swoll- en, have leaks, or are badly dent- ed. Mark or group cans to keep contents identifiable. After removing labels, wash cans in soap and water. Then immerse in a chlorine solution, such as house- hold bleach, for at least 2 minutes; replenish solution regularly. Store saturated books in a free- zer or frozen food locker for "freeze drying." This will dry the books with minimal damage and, most import- ant, prevent milldew. If a freezer or frozen food locker is not available, stand books on end with leaves separated. Sprinkle corn - starch or talcum between the leaves. After drying for a period of time, close the books and stack them to press the leaves. Brush off talcum or cornstarch and, just before they are completely dry, apply a little heat between the pages, using a spot- light, electric heater or similiar apparatus. To combat mildew and mildew stains caused by fungus growth, brush loose mold from fabric coy- MENUS FOR THE SUMMERS COUNTY SENIOR CITIZENS NUTR!TON PROGRAM N0v. 20: Country Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Glazed Carrots.

Sun and air will stop mold growth. If mildew remains, sponge lightly with thick soap suds or synthetic detergents. Use as little water as possible. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth. Or try wiping thefabric with a cloth wrung out in a solution of one cup denatured or rubbing alcohol and one cup of water. Of, if available, try using a low-pressure spray containing a fungicide to remove musty odors and prevent mildew. To reduce odors, clean the base- ment floor and walls with fresh water. Then rinse to disinfect and help reduce odors, using one pint of household bleach per five gallons of water. Commmercial services will deod- orize and disinfect an average - size dwelling in about two hours; this is the most effective means of com- bating insects. Have windows sc- reens repaired promptly. Also, dis- pose of debris and garbage as soon as possible. For odors in small enclosed places , use dry lump charcoal in open containers to absorb odors from the air. These are merely suggestions; when in doubt, always consult an expert in the field that you are questioning. The WVU Extension Office, Court- house Annex, Hinton, has informat- ion available on flood cleanup; telephone 466-3711. Senior Programs Launch House- cleaning - Sitter Service The Summers County Senior Cen- ter will soon be able to provide two new and expanded services. With the addition of several new staff members, thanks to the cooperat- ion of the Department of Human Services Community Work Employ- ment Program, the Senior Center Housecleaning services capabilities will be greatly expanded and a short term sitter - invalid care program will be launched. "The new programs will function along the same lines as our exist- ing home repair - chore services programs" project director Peggy Rossi explained. Persons in need of services will be able to call the Hinton Center. An application will be taken and they will be put on a list. The workers will be sent out each morning from the Hinton Senior Center office. These services will he available throughout the county. -"These services are intended for lower income persons who are un- able to pay the going hourly rate for these services," Ms. Roosi added. " For persons who are able to pay, the Senior center maintains a listing of persons seeking employment in these areas." No fees will be charged for cleaning and sitting services provided through the senior center program, however donations, based on what the individual can afford, will be encouraged. These contributions will be used to offset the senior center's cost in providing these new services. For more in- formation call the Hinton Senior Center at 466-4019. Tues.
