New Car Seat Laws
December 20, 2011

California law effective January 1, 2012, requires that all children under the age 8 must be properly buckled into a car seat or booster in the back seat. Children age 8 or older may use the vehicle seat belt if it fits properly, the lap belt low on the hips, touching the upper thighs, and the shoulder belt crossing the center of the chest. If children age 8 and older are not tall enough for proper seat belt fit, they must ride in a booster or car seat. Seat belts are designed for adults and do not properly fit children under 4’ 9” tall, regardless of the child’s weight. For each child under 16 who is not properly secured the driver can be fined more than $475 and get a point on their driving record. Everyone in the car must be properly buckled up.

Adopt a Family for Christmas
December 06, 2011
Donors are sought to help local families in need through the FIT Foundation Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program and local churches.

This is the second year that local United Methodist Churches are helping coordinate the FIT Foundation Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program, which is now in its 10th year.

The program matches individuals or groups anonymously with a family and then provides the donors with information about the family's needs and wishes to help in buying gifts.

For information about "adopting" a family, email d.meeker@murphybusiness.com or call (530) 790-7554.

Donations of unwrapped new toys and nonperishable food can be dropped off at locations in Yuba City during regular business hours: First United Methodist Church, Shaw and Associates, Bank of Feather River and Raintree Car Wash.

In addition, monetary donations — checks made out to the FIT Foundation — can be mailed to 1282 Stabler Lane, Suite 630-258, Yuba City CA 95993.
