Where to Beat the Heat

A 100-degree high temperature is in the forecast for the first time in a long time for our region.  And we must plan and act accordingly.  With temperatures climbing so high and the heat index making it feel even hotter, maintaining good health is important!

Be sure to avoid outdoor activity, especially during the hottest hours of the day (generally late morning through early afternoon).  If you must be outdoors, drink plenty of water and stay in the shade as much as possible.  NEVER leave children or pets in the car, and be sure to give plenty of water to our four-legged friends.  Also, it is important to check up on relatives or neighbors, particularly the elderly and those without air conditioning.

If you know someone who does not have access to air conditioning, please pass this information along.  The city of Rockford has numerous cooling sites that are free for everyone.  These sites are located throughout the city, such as the Salvation Army on 18th Avenue, Liberty Baptist Church on the southwest side, and many other locations close to downtown.  Furthermore, the Salvation Army and Keen Age Center in Belvidere will also open free cooling sites.

For all locations, addresses, and times, click the city of Rockford’s website here.  Let’s make sure we all stay safe during this heat wave! -JA

    You can get a feel for what’s good and what is not be researching online. Join worthy forums and blogs (those that frown on posting ads) and ask about the various coaching programs you find. A simple Google search can also help you determine if there are complaints about one program over another. Be cautious about review sites as they are fronts for sales pages, although they still may be worth reading through as sometimes they give more insight than just a standard sales pitch. Above all, if the coaching program is worth anything at all, it should have a money back guarantee. If you truly find that it is not working for you, get your money back
