As you may or may not know it takes roughly 25-30 workers to run a successful meet. Finding people to volunteer their time to help run these meets is very challenging as this is a very busy time of year for most people. We are hoping there are members in our community that would be will- ing to volunteer their time to help at one of our meets. There are many different areas where help is needed and you need no prior knowledge of track and field to help. If you enjoy being around the kids and would like to help at one or more of our home track meets this year, please con- tact the Activities Office at 515-989-0552 or email Activi- ties Director Craig Calhoun at craig.calhoun@carlisle.k1 2Aaron. The dates for this year's meets are 04/20, 04/22, 04/27 and 04/29. Thank you! Senior Spotlight Michael Martin By Jordyn Prall "I'm a beast," said Michael Martin, who is in this week's senior spotlight. When I asked Michael what he wanted me to say about him, "I'm a beast" was the first thing out of his mouth. Michael has been in football throughout high school. During his senior year, he was a player of the game during the Carroll, South Tama, Pella, Chariton, and Knoxville games. Michael was also an honorable men- tion in the all district foot- ball titles. He plays defen- sive and offensive line, and he is also a kicker. His fa- vorite team to watch is Notre Dame: Michael has two younger brothers, Samuel and Lucas. He loves the color red and the movies Office Space and Gone in 60 Sec- onds. His favorite food used to be shrimp, but now it's Chinese. He had to change it because his girlfriend, Chelsea, is allergic to shrimp. Michael and Chelsea have been dating for three and a half years. Michael was on the Carlisle homecoming court. In his spare time, Michael enjoys hanging out with Chelsea and friends. He says he works a lot and, like any other high school student, looks forward to the week- ends, when he has time to go mudding in his truck. Next year, Michael is go- ing to attend DMACC where he will study busi- ness management and how to be an electrician.

But how much is too much? According to the strict decency laws in Dubai, kiss- ing on the mouth is crossing the line. Recently, a British couple on vacation in the country were sentenced one month in jail for kissing each other at a local restaurant. Although the couple claims it was simply a peck on the cheek, the charges have yet to be dropped. This is not the first incident of its kind in Dubai. In March, an Indian Couple were sentenced three months in jail for sending explicit text messages. In 2008, a British couple was accused of having sex on a beach and also given a three month sentence. But Dubai is not the only country where these outrageous arrests occur. In 2009, six Ameri- can tourists in Antigua were charged with assault after refusing to pay an overpriced cab fare. Also in 2009, two Spanish tourists in England were arrested for taking pic- tures of a certain wall near Buckingham Palace. In July of that same year, an American tourist in Japan was ar- rested for possessing an illegal sized pocket knife. Although some of these arrests may seem crazy, there are no exceptions for the law. Living in America, we are accustomed to our laws; therefore, what may seem harm- less here may be a crime somewhere else in the world. When visiting a foreign country, it is a good idea to re- search their customs and laws. If planning to travel, you can visit to find out about these laws and avoid a problematic arrest of your own. MidAmerican Issues Safety Reminders Spring Storms May Cause Outages: Use Caution Work- ing On Projects As spring weather approaches, the potential for severe storm damage also increases. In conjunction with Severe Weather Awareness Week observances in Iowa, April 5-9, MidAmerican Energy Company reminds customers to stay safe when working outdoors around electrical facilities. Spring and summer storm season brings greater poten- tial for electric outages, as wind, rain and lightning can bring down trees and power lines. Additionally, spring weather allows homeowners to do more outdoor home im- provement projects, such as trimming trees, gutter repairs, home siding and roofing projects. Homeowners are reminded to use caution while work- ing on projects around electrical equipment. MidAmerican offers the following tips to stay safe: • If you see a downed line, assume it is energized and don't go near or touch it. Touching an energized power line can be fatal. Call MidAmerican immediately at 800- 799-4443. • If you lose power to your home during a storm, check your fuses or circuit breakers first, then call MidAmerican. • Never assume someone else has reported a power outage. If you lose power during a storm, call MidAmerican at 800-799-4443. Your information helps the company's electric outage management system pinpoint the source of an outage and speed the restoration process. • Be aware of your surroundings and electrical lines and equipment. Use caution when cleaning out rain gut- ters and trimming trees. Make sure no electrical lines are nearby or touching gutters or tree limbs. • Use caution when stepping outside your home during a power outage, a downed power line may be just outside your door or may be hidden by brush or debris. Use extra caution when picking up metal debris, such as awnings or metal roofing, which may be in contact with a hidden downed power line. • Never use a grill, space heater or portable generator intended for outdoor use inside your home. Similarly, never attempt to heat your home with a gas range. • Be prepared, keep fresh batteries in flashlights and lanterns for use during emergencies, and have extra bat- teries on hand. • Use caution and common sense in the placement of burning candles and oil lamps. Never leave candles burn- ing when you go to bed. Keep them away from drapes and other materials that could catch fire. Avoid placing candles on low tables where pets or child en could knock them off. Carlisle Dental Office Phil West, DDS 500 S 2nd Street Carlisle, IA 50047 (Next to Fiss') 989 -0447
