Get Set, Inc. ... on the move and Setting the standard for non-toxic pest control...
Attached to this newsletter is an article that appeared in the Vol. 19, No. 3, Fall 1999 issue of Pesticides and You news from Beyond Pesticides/National Coalition Against the Misuse of Pesticides (NCAMP). The article is entitled "Protecting Children from Pesticide Exposure in Schools" by Philip Landrigan, M.D., M.SC. Get Set, Inc. was mentioned in the article and we are very proud to be involved with removing pesticide poisons from schools in Michigan, Ohio, Maryland, Massachusetts, California, Texas and elsewhere. Thank you for helping prove pest control is not only possible without dangerous poisons, but actually better!
EPA is in the process of trying to remove pesticide poisons from all schools in the U. S. and you are shining examples of how to do exactly that.

The January 2000 issue of Service Technician announced that termites damaged more homes than fires in 1998 and the structural damage they caused was far more costly than the damages produced by tornadoes. We need to be sure any school building that has been previously treated for termites, or has recently seen any termite activity, is protected by the HomeGuard Baiting System. You should send us a list before May 2000.
You may also wish to send us a new set of schematic drawings for each of your schools so we can set up our Summer work schedules for each of your schools. If you would be kind enough to note new/old termite activity and/or new structures or additions, that would help us greatly in our May termite bait placements.
A man was driving along a freeway when he noted a chicken running along side his car. He was amazed to see the chicken keeping up with him at 50 mph. He accelerated to 60 and the chicken stayed right next to him. He sped up to 75 mph and the chicken passed him up. The man noticed the chicken had three legs. So, he followed the chicken down a road and ended up at a farm. He got out of his car and saw that all the chickens had three legs. he asked the farmer, "Whatís up with these chickens?" The farmer said, "Well, everybody likes chicken legs. I bred a three-legged bird. Iím going to be a millionaire."
The man asked how they tasted. The farmer said, "Donít know; havenít caught one yet."
Moses made a third pilgrimage to Mount Sinai. After much climbing he arrived at the burning bush and removed his sandals. Kneeling down, he said a prayer of entreaty:
"Oh mighty God, your people have sent me back to ask you a questions about the Ten Commandments."
"What question do they have?" roared the deity above.
"They want to know, are the listed by priority?"

Michigan lockers: A State House committee approved a bill earlier this month that would allow schools to conduct random locker searches in Michigan high schools.
The legislation has been criticized as frivolous because school boards already have the power to adopt locker-search policies. Those in favor of the bill, though, say those policies are not backed up by State law.
