Flash paper, crews say, is special tissue paper that when dry is highly flammable and can be ignited for a quick flash of fire. Flash paper is often used in theater productions or by magicians.The fire has been ruled accidental.The Sinclairville Fire Department was assisted by Gerry and Cassadaga Fire Department’s along with the County HAZMAT team.
Head lice make children scratch their heads. Getting rid of them can make parents want to pull their hair out.”Head lice are common among all classes of people,” said Paul Guillebeau, an entomologist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension. “They know no socioeconomic or ethnic boundaries. And, having them doesn’t imply a lack of cleanliness.”Martin Parker’s son Matthew was sent home twice this year because of head lice. Most schools, like Matthew’s DeKalb County, Ga., elementary school, have a “no nit policy.” This means a student cannot return to school until he is nit-free.Nitty-grittyNits are grayish-white to brown eggs the female head louse lays on hair shafts. To make matters worse, nits are resistant to pesticides and are difficult to remove without a nit-removing comb. Each time his son gets head lice, Parker strips the bedding from all his beds and thoroughly cleans his home with Lysol. He also covers the mattresses with plastic and sets them outside for a few days.Guillebeau says Parker’s house may be cleaner, but his efforts didn’t do much to remove the lice from Matthew’s head. Other parents panic and misuse pesticides or resort to unapproved treatments, like kerosene, he said.”Head lice are not an emergency,” he said. “They don’t pose any health risks. But misusing pesticides or spraying pesticides unnecessarily does put your child and your family at risk.”No pesticidesGuillebeau urges parents never to treat homes, cars, furniture, beds, pillows or clothing with pesticides in an attempt to control head lice.Knowing a little head lice biology can help parents not overreact. Head lice can’t live off a human host for more than 24 hours. They can’t reproduce in carpets, bedding or other home furnishings. And they can’t live on pets or stuffed toys.To kill head lice on bedding and clothes, wash and dry them as usual. Wash brushes, combs and hair accessories with hot, soapy water. For peace of mind, place stuffed animals in a sealed plastic bag for three to four days.Manual removal is the best method for removing head lice from a person, Guillebeau said. “If you use a lice shampoo, be sure to follow the label instructions exactly,” he said. “Misuse can be ineffective and dangerous.”Step-by-step removalTo manually remove head lice, follow these steps:1. Work in a well-lit area.2. Brush hair to remove tangles. Use a hair detangler spray or hair conditioner to help.3. Divide the hair into sections and fasten off hair that is not being worked on.4. Use a lice comb to detect and remove adult lice and nits. (Lice combs are available in most pharmacies.)5. Comb the hair section from scalp to end. Nits are usually found close to the scalp.6. Dip the comb in hot, soapy water or use tape to remove lice, nits and debris.7. Sift through the hair section and look for attached nits and live lice.8. Move to the next section of hair and repeat steps 4 – 7.9. Continue process until the entire scalp and all hair have been checked.10. Screen the infested person every day for 10 days and regularly thereafter to make sure lice and nits have been removed.Back in Atlanta, Parker has the local barber shave off Matthew’s curly locks. He then puts olive oil in his hair and makes his son wear a shower cap for an hour. He then uses the lice comb.“The nit comb was the lifesaver,” said Parker. “I had him sit in my lap, I put on my reading glasses and combed and combed to get them out.”

Sturridge has not played since the win over Swansea on February 17, but he returned to training this week and is on course to regain his place in the starting line-up alongside Suarez, whose hat-trick against Wigan last weekend made him the league’s leading scorer with 21. The pair have scored seven times in six appearances together. Winger Stewart Downing believes the duo’s different strengths makes their partnership a “nightmare” for defenders, and he said: “The way they play, he (Sturridge) is on the (centre-back’s) shoulder with Luis coming off, they are a nightmare for defenders. If we can get a good partnership with them going then we have a chance.” Press Association Liverpool look set to unleash their “nightmare” strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge on Champions League-chasing Tottenham this weekend. He added: “We can’t keep relying on Luis for goals and you need someone else to chip in. I think Daniel has been a good signing for us and although we missed him against Wigan, in the games he has played he gives us something different.” The visit of Spurs is the Reds’ only encounter against a team in the top half of the table until they host Chelsea and former boss Rafael Benitez on April 21. There is a 12-point gap between Brendan Rodgers’ side and Spurs, who have overtaken Chelsea to move into third place on the back of a Gareth Bale-inspired four-game winning run. Liverpool’s last home fixture, the 5-0 win over Swansea, was the first time they had beaten a team in the top 10, so they must now progress and secure a victory against one of the current top six. With Champions League qualification still 10 points out of their reach, the focus at Anfield is on the next match, and Rodgers is keen to concentrate on that rather than talk up their chances of a late challenge for the top four. Downing is of the same opinion but knows victory over Tottenham would be a major boost for their run-in. “If we can beat them we’ll keep chopping away at them,” he said. “There’s no point saying we want to finish fifth or sixth. We’ve just got to try and win our games and see what happens. “It’s going to be a great game. They’ve got good offensive players and the way we’re playing at the minute, we can get goals. We played them off the park at White Hart Lane.”
Hogg twice saw penalties hit the post, but a new-look three-quarter line of Christian Wade, Brad Barritt, Billy Twelvetrees and 36-year-old Shane Williams featured in a team that looked devoid of quality preparation time. The backs were powerless at times, having to scamper and retreat as a disorganised and mistake-riddled Lions pack performance helped the Brumbies eight dominate. They fell behind inside five minutes after Williams – the oldest back to play for the Lions in history – had an early chance to show his pace, but the Brumbies cleared and put together a sustained passage of attacking play. And it ended with Kuridrani barging through the attempted challenge of Wade and Rob Kearney to score a try that underlined how big a task the Lions faced. It was the first time the Lions had been behind in a game since they trailed Queensland Reds 10 days ago and they were not helped by a malfunctioning lineout, with skipper Rory Best’s erratic throwing a problem. The forwards continued to struggle for quality possession, which meant a difficult opening 40 minutes for half-backs Hogg and Ben Youngs, and a first defeat on tour beckoned unless they could raise their game. They began the second period with a greater sense of purpose and it took some organised defence to keep him out, but then the Lions’ familiar problems surfaced. A botched lineout led to a Brumbies break-out and when flanker Sean O’Brien was penalised for not rolling away, another successful Mogg kick restored an eight-point advantage. The Lions continued to concede a ridiculous number of turnovers and with their set-piece not functioning, there was very little a hastily-assembled back division could do. Grant conceded another penalty, this time for foul play, and Mogg completed his penalty hat-trick before a second Hogg strike kept the Lions in it. Changes that had long been expected arrived midway through the second half when Gatland sent on a new front row of Alex Corbisiero, Richard Hibbard and Dan Cole, with flanker Dan Lydiate replacing O’Brien. The Lions desperately needed some impetus after misfiring for much of the game, and Gatland decided with 18 minutes remaining that it was time for Farrell to replace Hogg as playmaker. And his first contribition was to kick an angled penalty that brought the Lions back within a try of levelling up a game they had played second fiddle in for so long. Another Farrell penalty made it 14-12, setting up a tense final nine minutes as the Brumbies tired and the Lions substitutes continued upping the ante, but it was ultimately all to no avail. Press Association The Lions lost their unbeaten tour record just four days before tackling Australia after Jake White’s Brumbies deservedly triumphed 14-12 at Canberra Stadium. In doing so, they became the first Australian provincial side since Queensland 42 years ago to silence the Lions’ roar. And there could be few realistic complaints from the visitors, who were outgunned up front for an hour before coach Warren Gatland summoned reinforcements off the bench. Centre Tevita Kuridrani struck early for the game’s only try, while Brumbies full-back Jesse Mogg kicked three penalties. The Lions, who were always behind, managed two Stuart Hogg penalties and two Owen Farrell strikes.
