According to an on-going study, being involved in non-school activities is an asset that helps kids become healthy, ethical, caring adults. After surveying 273,000 young people in 600 U. S. communities since September 1989, the Search Institute of Minneapolis has defined 30 developmental assets that determine a child's well-being Sixteen of the assets are external, including support systems, defined boundaries, and constructive activities,, and 14 of the assets are internal, including commitments, values, and skills that guide young people in their choices. The more of these assets children have, the more successful they will be. You can provide the asset of community activities by learnin more about community activities for kids and then discussing with your kids which activities best match their interests. Then car pool with other parents to get your kids to the activities they choose. Encourage your kids to stick with an organization for at least six months. Many kids drop out of activities without realizing it takes time to gain from them. Set a good example by giving your time, talent, or money to a community organization for young people and by j.'oining an organization with your mterests. Findings of the Institute's study are published in What Kids Need to Succeed, a booklet with quizzes for parents and children to determine which assets children have, as well as activities for parents, schools, communities, and places of worship to help children develop assets they do not have. Penny thoughts By Penny Sitter Hey, I'm back! To all of you who keep asking me to write something, I offer an apology. I could have written but I kept putting it off. I thought I would come up with some interesting story that would make you smile and feel happy. I did not want to tell you about illness, hospital stays, funerals or depressing things like that. Now, in Minnwest ] our golden years, we get involved in those events, whether we want to or not, and we just have to take it as it comes. I was a little worried about myself last week. I made a double batch of oatmeal cookies. There's no point in getting the dishes dirty over a small batch of dough. I remembered to double everything except the oatmeal. I formed the dough into rolls to refrigerate and slice later, when I thought about oatmeal. Did I or didn't I? The dough seemed firm. But, in order to be sure, I baked a few cookies. They got very very thin and crisp. So I had to work some oatmeal into each roll of dough. Such a waste of time. But the cookies turned out all right. Then I was asked to bake a funeral cake. The dough seemed very thick. Just as I was going to put it into the cake pan, I remembered the eggs. I dumped in three eggs and beat it some more. The cake turned out so good that I decided to make rhubarb cream pie. I am sure that I put the shortening in the crust, but it turned out similar to cardboard. And the meringue beaded up with tiny sugar bubbles. I know Betty Crocker doesn't approve of that. But, the pie got eaten. It makes me a little bit nervous. Do you think I'm losing it? Is it possible that I can't make simple things after 50 years of farm cooking? Do you think it is a sign of old age and complications? But, hey, don't cry for me. I just thought of a solution - I'll tell my husband that we should eat out more often. Engaged Jim and Dee Strong of Ortonville, and John and Rita Schmisek of Highlands Ranch, CO, announce the engagement of their children Mark and Amy. A June 6th wedding is planned at St. John's Catholic Church, Ortonville.
