Wellness Chance Haugen, D.C. Beware of New Mosquito Repellant I saw a commercial the other day for a new mosquito repellant called OFF! Clip-on. Instead of spraying the repellant all over your skin, you just clip this device to your belt and it spins and sprays mosquito repellant into the air. Now at first this may seem great because you don't have to get that sticky smelly spray all over yourself, but let's take a closer look. One of the first things I thought of was how is this going to affect your body if you breathe it in. Well it doesn't take long to find the answer to that. If you look on the back of the box it says "CAUTION: Harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Avoid breathing vapor." I think you'll find it very hard to use this product and follow all these warnings. Let's see what chemicals you would be breathing in if you use this product. " Metofluthrin and polyethylene terephthalate are the active ingredients in the repellent. Both can damage your central nervous system. Experts don't know much else about the chemicals because they are so new. I would advise trying other alternatives to keep the mosquitos away. I know some people hate spraying repellent onto their skin because they are scared of the healttf effects it may cause, not to mention the bad smell and stickiness. Look for natural alternatives such as repellants that use citronella, lemongrass oil, peppermint oil, or vanillin. These are much Safer alternatives. It's the little things we do that add up over time. There's a reason why diseases like cancer keep increasing. Everyday exposures to chemicals and toxins that we allow ourselves to come in contact, with can have a huge impact on our health.

Having grown up in the Rosen area, it was nice to come back home. The couple met when Peter was working in Madison. Shortly there after, work took them to Pembina where they have spent the majority of their life. They have been mar- ried for 43 years. Maureen worked for a Bus Manufacturing Company in Pembina, while Peter worked for a Motorcoach Company and did body work. Two years ago they purchased a home in Ortonville and moved in about one year ago. Maureen is currently active with the Big Stone Arts Council which she really enjoys. "It is a wonderful group to be asso- ciated with," said Maureen. In her spare time, she enjoys making Ukranian Easter Eggs, which she was taught by one of Peter's relatives. Fishing is some- thing both her and Peter like to do, especial- ly living so close now to Big Stone Lake. She also like gardening, particularly flower gardening. Peter's hobbies include wood carving, leather tooling and shooting a game of pool. Peter and Maureen have collected many Indian Arrowheads over the years and enjoy reading and keeping up on the history of the area. Maureen is an active member of St. John's Catholic Church in Ortonville and is helping the church get ready of the Chuckwagon Jamboree to kick off this year's Cornfest.
