Scouts kick off
local food drive
The Publin Cub Scouts and
Boy Scouts will kick off their
food drive Saturday with a house-
to-house collection of food items.
The Scouts will go around to
homes in Dublin on Saturday
morning to leave grocery sacks
for donated food items. They will
either return on Saturday after-
noon or take the items with them
Saturday morning, depending on
the preference on the giver.
All collected food will go to the
local food bank, with distribution
done by Goodfellows and First
United Methodist Church.
The food drive is a part of the
Scouts’ community service pro-

“Apart from holidays and April
ISth, there is probably not
another single day that captures
the attention of the public as
does the American Cancer
Society’s Great American Smok-
eout,” says Bobbie Nichols, chair-
man of the Erath County unit of
the American Cancer Society.
“It’s one of the most important
public health days in the world.”
Held each year on the Thursday
before Thanksgiving, the Great
American Smokeout is a lively,
upbeat event that tries to con-
vince smokers to quit for just 24
hours. If they quit for 24 hours,
maybe they’ll go on to quit for
good. At the very least, they’ll
have one success to build on in
future attempts to quit smoking,
Mrs. Nichols said.
In 1989, more than 35 percent
or 17.9 million of the nation’s 50
million smokers participated in
the Smokeout. One to three days
later, 3.9 million were still not
“Of the entire population, 85
percent were familiar with the
Great American Smokeout,” Mrs.
Nichols said. “The Smokeout is a
great American success story and
we want to keep it that way so
that smokers will continue to be
encouraged to quit.”
Nonsmokers can partipate too
by providing support to those
trying to quit on Smokeout Day.
The American Cancer Society has
special Adopt-A-Smoker papers
for this purpose.
“No one should have to go it
alone when quitting smoking,”
says Mrs. Nichols. “The Smok-
eout lets quitters know that the
public is behind them and family
and friends can offer the specific
support a quitter needs.”

smoking, cancer and tips on quit-
ting, call the American Cancer
Society at 1-800-ACS-2345.
