Mealpay/Plus for school meals is improved - The online payment system for parents to access cafeteria accounts is "new and improved," according to Mealpay/Plus program contacts. In addition to a new state-of-the-art parent support center, parents also now have the ability to view pending and confirmed payments. Due to the system upgrades, parents will need to register or re-register their account on www.mealpayplus.com - instructions are listed on that website. All account balances and deposits made through Mealpay/Plus through the end of 2007 will reflect on the new account. For those parents not familiar with the system, parents/guardians may go into the Mealpay system to enter money for children for breakfast/lunch meal accounts at anytime. There is a $2 fee per entry.

Your mouth feels the heat because of a chemical in hot peppers called 'capsaicin.' Water (and most other beverages) can't do much to ease the burn. But milk contains a substance called 'casein' which acts to scrub away the hot stuff. JANUARY BIRTHDAYS: Dwayne Wade (26), Jan. 17; Dolly Parton (62), Jan. 19; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jan. 27
