             Consumer Safety for 4th of July:
                         GRILL SAFETY

                The Queens Times wants to remind its readers before you
           start grilling this holiday weekend, to read this. The New York
           Propane Gas Association (NYPGA) wants consumers to stay
           safe with these key tips:

           Safety for Kids – The grilling area should be designated as a
           “No Play Zone,” keeping kids and pets away from the equipment.
           To help kids learn about gas grill safety, the Propane Education
           & Research Council has launched the fun interactive website
           1.   Always keep the lid open when lighting your grill. Don’t
           close it until you are sure the grill is lit.
           2.   Keep the grill in a well-ventilated outdoor area, at least ten
           feet away from the house—and at least three feet away from
           trees and shrubs.
           3.   Never cover the bottom of the grill with foil - it can restrict   Democrats and Republicans pray on field at Nationals Park before start of Congressional
           air circulation.                                        Baseball Game. Photo Courtesy of Congressman Ruben Kihuen. See story on page 6.
