Eating Blackeye b On New Years Is it true that you'll have good luck every day of the year if you eat blackeyed peas and corn bread on New Year's Day? County Agent-Home Econo- mics Mary Ellen Haynes says that for some people, eating blackeyed peas is an occasion for a New Year's Day at-home party. The peas are served right along with buffet food. For others, peas are a main dish meal. For whatever reason, this is a good vegetable to keep in your pantry. There are many advantages to this tasty food. They're easy to store. They come in small packages and need no refrigeration. All they need is to be kept tightly covered in a cool place. Blackeyed peas have a long shelf life. If you store them properly, they'll be available for emergency meals and regular menu planning. And blackeyed peas com- bine well with other foods. Used in chili or in bean or pea soup with bacon, they are a powerful source of protein. Activity Light For Police Dept. Florala Chief of Police Paul Mitchell was elated this week over having had two relatively quiet holiday weekends. He reports everything went great during the Christmas holidays, with very few arrests of any kind, including DWls. He is a bit skeptical, however, over the upcoming New Year's holiday weekend. The Florala Police Depart- ment made 15 arrests during the weeks of December 14 through 28: disorderly conduct 1, public drunk 4, DWI 4, bench warrant 1, running a stop sign 2, assault and battery 1, no drivers license 2 -- for a total of 15 arrests. eyno Reynolds Aluminum Recyc- ling Company is increasing from 15 cents to 17 cents a pound the amount it pays the public for recycling aluminum beverage cans and other clean household aluminum effective January 4. 1977, it was announced today by Harold L. Albrecht, president of the Reynolds Metals Company subsidiary. Mr. Albrecht cited projected results of the company's best volume year in 10 years of consumer recycling and the fact that the aluminum beverage can is becoming a more valuable commodity in the consumer recycling stream. "The success of our recycling program is due in largest part to thousands of Americans who recycle alum- inum. And it is because of their efforts that we are now able to offer them this increase in economic incentive," he said. "Two of our primary objectives," he said, "are energy savings and litter reduction. Each time we recycle aluminim we save 95 per cent of the energy that would be required to make primary aluminum, and alum- inum can be recycled again and again. And consumer recycling definitely has had a positive impact on our country's litter problem." Reynolds began paying 10 cents a pound when it pionerred consumer recycling on a national basis in 1968. In mid-1974, that figure was increased to 15 cents per pound. Since the program began, the company has recycled more than seven billion cans and paid the public more than $45 million. "In 1975 alone," Mr. Albrecht said, "our company recycled the equivalent of approximately 1.8 billion aluminum cans and paid the public more than $13 million. Projections for 1976 show that we will recycle well over 100 million pounds of aluminum -- which will include more than two billion cans -- paying the public over $15 .million. creases Pay yC "The economic incentive that aluminum recycling offers has made our program grow by leaps and bounds. We are now recycling at the rate of almost 50 per cent of the cans we manufacture, and we are working toward the day when we'll be recycling 100 per cent." Reynolds has 73 permanent recycling facilities and 150 mobile recycling units opera- ting almost 800 collection points at convenient locations PERSONALS across the United States where recyclers can recieve 17 cents a pound for aluminum beverage cans and other clean household aluminum items such as frozen food and dinner trays, pie plates and foil, pudding and meat containers. HOUSEHOLD HINTS Make it a habit to wipe the telephone frequently with a sudsy sponge. And give special attention to the mouthpiece.
