12 PAWTUCKET APRIL 17-23, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION the affordable housing component, starting the gentrification process. Mercer took issue with suggestions that the council is against affordable housing. He said he hasn't heard from a single developer who has pressured the council to vote their way, saying he's simply trying to do what's best for his con- stituents and the city. "The council's not anti affordable housing, we're anti half-ass statutes," he said, adding that he, too, found the proposed ordinance to be irresponsible. The council heard from a couple of landown- ers within the district, William Coyle III and George Hovarth, who weren't happy about being included within its confines and ques- tioned why they would be included with little advance notice. Director of Commerce Jeanne Boyle assured them that their properties would be grandfa- thered into the district, even if they were sold in the future. Hovarth said he would like to see an opt-out clause added to the final ordinance.

Allergy suffers usually experience congestion, sneezing, and a runny nose but their eyes can also be affected. Eye allergies, also known as allergic conjunctivitis, are very common and can present as red, itchy, watery eyes and swollen eyelids. In some instances, they also can cause sensitivity to light, foreign body sensation, and/ or blurry vision. Eye allergies are caused by allergens such as pollen, mold, dust and pet dander. When an allergy sufferer is exposed to allergens it releases a substance called histamine. There are different ways to get relief from eye allergies. Avoiding allergens is one of the best approaches. It may be necessary to see an allergist who can perform a skin or blood test to help identify specific allergens. When outdoors protect your eyes from airborne allergens by wearing wraparound sunglasses. Cold compresses can help to reduce swelling around the eyes and itching. In mild cases over-the-counter antihistamine eye drops (such as Alaway or Zaditor) may relieve eye allergy symptoms. Artificial tears can also help temporarily by washing allergens from your eyes. However, in more severe cases or if you do not get relief with over-the-counter eye drops, you may need to be prescribed a stronger medication by your eye doctor. In any case, do NOT rub your eyes! Rubbing your eyes releases more histamines and makes symptoms worse. Schedule an eye exam today to help get relief from your eye allergies! We hope you found this answer useful and informative.

It is stereotypical that learning a musical instrument is strictly an activity reserved for children. However, more and more adults are letting go of that preconceived notion and finally learning to play an instrument. Aside from learning to play the instrument of your choice, there are also benefits that accompany involvement in music studies. It is proven that playing a musical instrument can help improve coordina- tion and memory to say nothing of being a form of relaxation or even meditation. And if you think that you are too old to learn then think again. Teachers notice that the adult student has better motivation and more focus than their adolescent counterpart. You will also discover that most music lesson facilities have a high percentage of adult enrollment, so there is no need to feel like you are the only one. If you have the desire then there is no reason to deprive yourself any longer because it is time to make music. How old is too old to begin learning a musical instrument? Q: A: 1530 Mineral Spring Avenue, North Providence, RI 401-353-3805 & Music Learning Center 1. Read Reviews It's impossible to know how tires will perform after a few thousand miles… unless you read the reviews of people who already have those tires. Look for people who drive a similar car to yours (truck, SUV, sports car, etc.) If a tire lasts 50,000 miles, look for the reviews of people who have driven at least 12,500 miles on the tires. Your car will always drive well on new tires. The true test of a tire's durability comes after it's had some miles put on it. 2. Be on the Lookout for Rebates When you know the life of your tires is coming to an end, start looking for manufacturer rebates on tires. Top brands like Goodyear, Pirelli, Cooper, and Michelin frequently offer significant discounts via rebate on their tires, and it pays to swap out your tires when you find a good deal. 3. Make Sure Your Tires are Actually New Just because your tires are new does not mean they haven't been sitting in the back of a warehouse for a few months. Being exposed to extreme heat and cold can take the life out of tires before they ever hit the asphalt, so be sure to check the four-digit number on the side of the tire which tells when the tires were manufactured. 4. Buy the Best You Can Afford When you determine what type of tires your vehicle needs, buy the highest quality tire you can afford in that category. Higher quality tires will typically save you money in the long run because they will last longer and perform better for longer. What do I need to know before buying tires? Q: A: Aside from the critical bonding time gained by brushing your dog, there are a number of critical health benefits for brushing your dog. First, it's a great way to become intimately familiar with all of the normal "bumps" on the dog's skin. Brushing / combing allows you to know when new "bumps" appear that could be ticks or other medical conditions that might require a vet's attention. Second, by not brushing / combing your dog, your dog may start to develop matts. We encourage dog owners to think of matted fur as akin to an adhesive bandage tugging at the hair on your skin. It can be painful! Sometimes groomers can cut the matts out, but depending on where they're located or what size they are, the only option many times is to shave them out. Be sure when brushing to address all parts of the dog. Many times the top of the neck and back are well brushed, but the chest, legs, and tail is left unaddressed. Why is brushing a dog important?
