Countryside Public Health has tips to encourage breast feeding August is Minnesota Breast feeding Awareness Month, in conjunction with [- World Breast feeding Week, Aug. 1-7. ] In honor of this observance, the Coun- tryside Public Health WIC program - and other organizations throughout the - world are working to increase aware- ness of and support for breast feeding. The importance of breast feeding for both mother and baby has been well established in numerous studies. One of the latest studies, pflblished in the May 2010 issue of Pediatrics, shows that breast feeding can also signifi- ,canfly reduce health care costs and pre- vent deaths. According to the authors of The Burden of Suboptimal Breast feeding in the United States, "If 90 percent of U.S. families could comply with med- ical recommendations to breast feed exclusively for six months, the United States would save $13 billion per year and prevent an excess 911 deaths, nearly all of which would be infants." Unfortunately, women face many barriers that can keep them from breast feeding to recommended levels. That is why Countryside Public Health WlC program is working to spread the word that everybody has a role in supporting breast feeding. "It-is important for everyone in the community to support breast feeding," said Miriam Lindblad. coordinator of the Countryside Public Health WIC program. "This includes families, friends, employers, child care providers, the health care system, faith communities and many others." "Baby steps to breast feeding suc- cess" is included in the theme to sup- port mothers and babies to get off to a great start. The steps are: 1. Prepare during pregnancy: Learn all you can about breast feeding. Tell your family and friends you will be breast feeding so they can learn how to support you. 2. Stay with your baby: After your baby is born, hold your baby skin to skin for at least the first hour after birth, and any chance you can. Keep your baby in your room and feed your baby at least eight to 12 times every 24 hours, following your baby's signals that he is ready to eat. Avoid supple- ments, pacifiers and bottles unless your doctor recommends it. Ask for help from others if you have questions or problems. 3. Continue breast feeding: Breast feed exclusively for at least six months. continue even after start other foods around six months. If you are return- ing to work or school, talk to those in support to make a plan to express breast milk while you are away from your baby. "Breast feeding Just 10 steps! The Baby-Friendly Way" is another breast feeding theme It was chosen to draw attention to the 10 steps that help sup- port breast feeding in hospitals. These ten steps can be adapted to clinics, pub- lic health agencies, and other settings. The ten steps are: Have a written breast feeding policy that is routinely communicated to all health care staff. Train all health care staff in skills necessary to implement this policy. Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breast feeding. Help mothers initiate breast feeding within a half-hour of birth. Show mothers how to breast feed and taow to maintain lactation, even if they should be separated from their in- fants. Give newborn infants no food or drink other than breast milk unless medically indicated. Practice rooming-in allowing mothers and infants to remain together for 24 hours a day. Encourage breast feeding on de- mand Give no artificial teats or pacifiers (also called dummies or soothers) to breast feeding infants. Foster the establishment of breast feeding support groups and refer moth- ers to them on discharge from the hos- pital or clinic. "There are many simple things, like these steps, that we can do to support breast feeding women, infants and families in our community." said Lind- blad "If we all work together, we can improve the health of our babies and mothers and also save health care costs and lives," Independent want ads The Ortonville School is taking applications for Head Girls Basketball Coach Applications are available online at or n the K-12 Office.

Advo- cates have worried that the. recession would force many nonprofits to close their doors, but instead, organizations have gotten savvy with their finances and creative in the way they deliver service - even in the face of cuts. Joyce Bilingual Preschool, which offers kindergarten readiness program- ming, was forced to cut transportation for their low-income students. But even this cloud has a silver lining, says the school's executive director, Laura Iohansson. "We actually were able to expand our hours so parents could drop off their children. As a result, some of oUr kids actually were able to get more contact hours, but we were still able to reduce our expenses because we were having to reduce transportation serv- ices." The report shows that, across the board, nonprofits are looking for proactive ways to stay afloat, including more aggressive fUndraising, scaling back services or hours, reducing office space or merging with other nonprof- its. The revenue source most com- .monly affected by the recession is grants from foundations, which saw dramatic reductions in their endow- ments due to losses from stock market investments. But not all endowments have suf- fered. Client Community Services, Inc. operates group homes for disabled adults in southwestern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Some thoughtful plan- ning during good times has paid off during the recent hard times, according to executive director Martin Rickers. Since the early 1990s, any time they have needed to purchase property to set up a group home. Rickers says the or- ganization has turned to its endowment fund. "Rather than borrow the money from a bank, they borrow the money from the endowment fund. and set up an amortized loan Within the endow- ment fund, and are paying the princ!- pal and interest back just like we would to a bank. So. it's become a self-sus- taining endowment fund." The stability of the endowment has been critical, he says. because they ex- perienced a reduction in public funding for direct services that has forced them to reduce staffing. Unreliable funding remains one of the biggest challenges that face Min- nesota nonprofits, and Johansson says that has forced her organization to be flexible to stay in the black. "The last couple of years, we've done budgets that have been best-case scenario budgets and worst-case sce- nario budgets. A lot of really smart fi- nancial planning and forecasting has been going, on. So. we're m good shape."

Online service for voters to locate polling place available Secretary of State Mark Ritchie en- couraged Minnesota voters to use the Office of the Secretary of State's free online service to locate their polling lo- cation for the Aug. 10 state primary election. By simply entering your ad- dress', Polling Place Finder pro- vides your voting location, a map to that location, information about your voting district, and candidates appear- ing on your ballot. "Th Aug. 10 primary election day is almost here and it's time to get ready to vote Minnesota," Ritchie said. "Visit the secretary of state's office Web site to find your polling location. Our Polling Place Finder is easy to use and provides you information on where to vote and who will be on your ballot." A primary is different than a general election. A primary is held to provide voters an opportunity to narrow a field of candidates to determine whose names will appear on the general elec- tion ballot on Nov. 2. In a general elec- tion, voters are electing candidates to occupy a public office to represent them. Primary voters will narrow the field of partisan candidates within one of the three major political parties of their choosing: Republican, Independence, and Democratic-Farmer-Labor. They will also narrow the field of nonparti- san candidates in contests for judicial, county and local Offices. Minnesota has an "open primary," which means that voters are not re- quired tO register with a political party. However, primary voters cannot vote for candidates in more than one politi- cal party. Primary voters are only al- lowed to vote for candidates within one political party's primary races,on the partisan portion of their ballots "Primary elections are very impor- tant. becaUse primary voters determine the candidates that wilt be on the No- vember ballot," Ritchie said. "Ulti- mately, the policy decisions that affect all Minnesotans will be decided from the slate of candidates nominated on Aug. 10." Most polling locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Minnesota has Election Day registration, which al- lows voters to register at the polls.
