12A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, October 18, 1990 Fire Prevention Is your home a safe haven from fire? It may not be, if you haven't gone on a hunt for home hazards lately. According to Fred Hedges of the Ronceverte Fire Department, over 5,000 people in the United States died in fires in their homes in 1988 (the lat- est year for which statistics are available), and the majority of those fire deaths could have been prevented by changing risky behaviors and, identifying and removing home fire hazards. "With about 80 per cent of all fire deaths m this country occur- rin~ in our homes, this year's t:irc Prevention Week message is right on tile mark," Chief ttodges says. "The lheine, 'Make Your Place Firesafe: Hunt for Home Hazards,' underscores the im- porianI role we can have in re- ducing our risk of having a home lire by pointing out that there are steps we all can take to nlake our homes firesafe. The firsl step is gong on a htmt for home fire hazards." Officially kicking off the cam- ..... ~ ....... ~, ,-- ONLY * The Dodge Shadow America is the lowest priced American car?

Who would have ever thought the largest herb we know would be a banana, when bananas are always considered a fruit. In the world of plants there are many categories like annuals, perenni- als, trees, fruits, shrubs, vines, ornamentals and vegetables. Due to many other beneficial qualities, many of these group- ings, including fruits like ba- nanas, have earned tile classifi- cation of herb. When one of these categories goes beyond the norm arid actually provides more than basic nutrition for our sys- tems, it will be merited as an herb. Banana plants, musa para- disiaca, sapientum or the dwarf, musa cavendishii (Musaceae), look like trees but actually have no woody trunk or limbs. What we think of as "tile trunk of the tree" is actually a series of tong leafstalks wrapped tightly to- gether. As with many tropical plants, each new leaf appears consecutively on the stalk much like the wrappings of a cigar. As the plant continues to grow the new leaf unrolls, similar to a huge drooping feather. Each ap- pearing new leaf COl~tinues to promote the further height and style of the banana plant. Surprisingly enough, and similar to other |ropical plants, the roots of banana trees are perennial. Propagation is easily made by removing and planting the sucker plant from the base. With added knowledge of the bananas, a tropical plant which What? You're Not A Bus Driver? Suzie's team is on its to the state championship finals, if only they could get a nde.
