The Plumas Unified School District Board of Trustees adopted a new tobacco policy during its Feb. 13 meeting. The decision has been delayed at previous meetings because of the new exception for nico- tine cessation products. School board member Kathy Price, who is also a physi- cian's assistant, believe it's important that students-who are trying to stop smoking have the ability to use these products. However, all agreed that, even if the products did not re- quire a prescription, a doctor's note would be required for the students to use the products at school. Students will not be allowed to share items such as nicotine gum. Students who use tobacco products at school or during school-sponsored events may be suspended. The school board will re- quire more time before it pass- es a new policy on advertising and promotions.

In these cas... es, the Girl Scouts of Sierra Cascade offer special pro- grams geared toward the needs of the girls. For exam- ple, an area where there are concerns of in'activity, a sports day has been offered. Another example is Girl Scouting in the school day where transportation is a problem. Many troops are also partic- ipating in a "Gift of Caring" program in conjunction with the cookie sale. Troop mem- bers were asked to adopt a lo- cal women's shelter, senior residence, or food bank of their choice, then ask their customers if they would like to purchase an extra box of cookies for the troop to donate to that charity. Girl Scout cookies come in eight varieties: Apple Cinna- mon, a reduced fat apple- shaped cookie; Trefoils, an old-fashioned shortbread cookie; Do-si-dos, an oatmeal peanut butter sandwich cook- ie; Samoas, a caramel, cocoa and coconut cookie; Lemon Drops, a lemon cookie with lemon-flavored chips; Taga- longs, a cookie topped with peanut butter and enrobed in chocolate; Thin Mints, a thin, crisp peppermint cookie; and Aloha Chip, a cookie contain- i ing white fudge chiPS' macadamia nuts.
