Trenton Sun Page 4 - Social Wednesday, March 12, 2014 i i From left: Tim Deien and Aaron Eversgerd. Promoted to shop foreman Tim Deien, service di- rector at Deien Chevrolet in Trenton, recently an- nounced he promotion of long-time employee Aaron Eversgerd to shop foreman. Eversgerd has worked as an ASE and GM Certified service technician for the Trenton dealership since 2001. As shop foreman, Ever- sgerd will use his extensive knowledge of vehicle repair and maintenance in a cus- tomer service capacity. He will maintain his ASE and GM Certification through ongoing training. Deien commented, "Aaron is bridging the gap between the service technician and the customer. He can listen to the customers' concerns and efficiently relay them 'to our service technicians. When we find a necessary repair on a customer's ve- hicle, Aaron will be able to explain exactly what's go- ing on and what needs to be done to fix it, in terms our customers will understand. I am really excited to be able to offer this level of service to our customers." Farmers Market meeting The New Baden Produce in the Park will kick off for another year starting late May.

By: Caitlyn Jacober I recently moved into a new house and the process of building your kitchen from nothing is not only ex- pensive, but it takes quite a bit of planning. There are things that you are used to having in your reach, such as salt and pepper or ketchup. It was very odd to have to think about all of the things you need to have on a daily basis and try to figure out the cheapest route. My family is one of the main reasons I budget to- day, because they taught me how to save the pennies I earn. Trying to build your kitchen can take hundreds of dollars. l am a huge advocate for eating on a budget, plan- ning ahead, and minimiz- ing the amount of times you have to go to the store. Making meals with what is already in the kitchen has become a game and also a huge challenge. As I was shopping I kept reaching toward the off- brand items because they were the cheapest and I had coupons. I only bought things that were on sale, clearance, or if I had a cou- pon in order to keep inside of my budget. As I was comparing off-brand with name brand items, I dis- covered something. Normally, off-brand items claim to be just as good as the leading brand, which turns out to be 99% true. As I. was comparing ketchup brands they did have the same ingredients but in the wrong order on the list. The specific off- brand I was looking at had high fructose corn syrup listed second on the ingre- dient list, which means that the corn syrup was the second highest amount in the product; in the name brand, it was listed at the bottom. I've always mentioned that everyone should be- come food investigators because for 60 cents more I paid for a product with ac- tual tomatoes rather than a large amount of sugar. While you're eating on a budget make sure to al- ways look at what you're about to eat. Contact Caitlyn at: caitlynjacober@sbcglobal.net. Relay for Life news and fundraisers Did you know March is Colon Cancer Awareness month? For more than 65 years, the American Can- cer Society has been finding answers ,to critical ques- tions about colorectal can- cer (commonly called colon Cancer) - what causes it, how can it be prevented, de- tected and treated success- fully and how colon cancer patients' quality of life can be improved. These efforts have con- tributed to substantial decreases in colon cancer mortality over the past two decades. Despite the prog- ress, colon cancer is still the third-deadliest cancer in the US, and the Soci- ety is committed to saving more lives from this le- thal disease. Colon cancer is one of only two cancers (the other is cervical can- cer) that can actually be prevented through screen- ing. Half of all colon cancer deaths could be prevented if all Americans followed cur- rent screening guidelines, which recommend average risk people begin screen- ing at age 50, and followed all known prevention and early detection interven- tions such as reductions in obesity, smoking, physical inactivity, and red and pro- cessed meat consumption. The American Cancer Society's research (which is helped funded by Relay For Life donations) has led to several seminal discoveries that provide hope for the future and now more than a million people in the US count themselves as survi- vors of colon cancer. To learn more about co- lon cancer and prevention tips, please visit cancer.org.
