BACK IN TIME
May 17, 1966
Twenty-six Georgia counties, including Wilkes and McDuffie, have been warned that their boards of county commissioners might be illegally apportioned following the U.S. Supreme Court's one-man, one-vote mandate.
William Trotter, attorney for the Association County Commissioners of Georgia, said Monday, "These counties are in trouble. If anyone files suit, they'll have to reapportion their districts."

SCREEN THAT SUN
Even long-lasting, waterproof sunscreens lose effectiveness during a day on the beach.
Children's Medical Center of Dallas suggests you apply sunscreen 30 minutes before heading out, reapply after 20 minutes in the sun, then reapply every two hours.
CONDITIONING OILY HAIR
Women with oily hair should never condition their whole head because they have plenty of a natural conditioner called sebum, at the roots area.
Instead, they should start midshaft and work down through the ends.
A FIT PET
Keep your pet fit. Here's how:
- Don't feed your pet table scraps.
- Exercise your pet every day by playing or walking.
- Measure pet food - don't give more than package recommends.
- Cut back on treats.
- Don't put pets on a crash diet; they need to eat, especially in the winter.
- See a veterinarian to find a proper weight and diet for your pet.
