So this is my first year to do my own taxes (I'm so
special!!!). And in our yearly quest for a free way to do it Mom and I
found that we used the same site we used last year
TaxSlayer.com and this special link makes Federal and State tax filing
completely free for qualifying people. It's really very easy to
do, once your finished filling everything out, you calculate your refund
print everything out and file it! I believe you can either e-file it OR
mail it but I know we e-filed ours and on the printed out forms it tells
you which forms you do need to mail to where with what!

Vaccines and Scientific Studies, Do your research It's YOUR choice!!!
ThinkTwice Global Vaccine Institute We offer an extensive selection of uncensored information on childhood shots and other immunizations. Because this is such an important topic, we believe that parents are entitled to a full disclosure of all pertinent data and the freedom to choose whether or not to vaccinate their children.
MedScape has an article about how Immunization is among the most successful and cost-effective public health interventions.[1,2] Immunization programs have led to eradication of smallpox, elimination of measles and poliomyelitis in regions of the world
Medical Veritas is the preeminent journal that serves as an interface between academics, scientists, researchers, medical practitioners, and concerned patients and parents. Relevant topics range from basic research, general medical practice, vaccines, treatments, bias and other conflicts of interest in research, to immunology, vaccine injury, and infectious diseases.
WHO-World Health Organization The World Health Organization is the United Nations specialized agency for health. It was established on 7 April 1948. WHO's objective, as set out in its Constitution, is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health. Health is defined in WHO's Constitution as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Petit Jean Electric Cooperative Members address Board of Directors; Gozarks announces new editor-in-chief!!!

Energy is a very big topic in the world today, here in our community and everywhere! Young people like myself are always looking for ways to help out the environment. I learned most all of my good habits from my mom. Recycle, reduce, reuse is a common everyday acquaintance in our household and in our life.
We have recently been interested in our local Electric Cooperative Petit Jean, I have come up with a question "How are young or new minds going to be able to learn what’s going on and take over in our community and bring us into a more energy efficient way of life if the Petit Jean Electric Cooperative board of directors will not allow anyone to be present at regular meetings?" For a detailed letter to the editor about our encounter with this please take a look here.
Turn off anything electric that you are not using! All lights, fans, VCRs, televisions, stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances... it really helps just to turn it off:)
Some energy saving tips from www.energy.gov go take a look around!
Excess energy use happens ever day in most appliances that use electricity, such as VCRs, televisions, stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances. In the average home, 75% of the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the products are turned off. This can be avoided by unplugging the appliance or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut all power to the appliance.
Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use (TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power). Turn off your computer and monitor when not in use. Air dry dishes instead of using your dishwasher's drying cycle. When shopping for a new clothes dryer, look for one with a moisture sensor that automatically shuts off the machine when your clothes are dry. Not only will this save energy, it will save wear and tear on your clothes caused by over-drying. Consider air-drying clothes on clothes lines or drying racks. Air-drying is recommended by clothing manufacturers for some fabrics.
Saving energy starts with being an informed consumer. Estimate an appliance's individual annual energy costusing this guide.
