How to Handle Fruits and Vegetables

The skin of fresh fruits and vegetables can have germs that can make you sick. They also can contain chemicals that farmers use to help the plants grow. That’s why it’s a good idea to wash fruits and vegetables before you eat them. Here are some tips:

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water before and after handling fruits and vegetables.Washing_peppers
  2. Rinse all fresh fruit and vegetables with warm water, even if you don’t eat the skin or peel. Germs on the skin or peel can spread to the inside when you cut or peel it.
  3. If there is a firm skin, such as on apples or potatoes, use a scrub brush to clean it.
  4. Cut away bruised or damaged areas on fruits and vegetables before you eat them.
  5. Most fresh fruits and vegetables will stay fresher if put in the refrigerator, but some will not. For example, it is OK to keep potatoes and bananas on the kitchen counter. But return cut and peeled fruits and vegetables to the refrigerator within two hours. Put them in the crisper and cover them.

2017-2018 Employee Virtual Parking Permit Purchase

Ongoing employee’s payroll deduction for virtual parking permits is now available for the 2017-2018 academic year. The virtual parking permit is your license plate and an automated license plate reader camera is used to verify permits.  “Vehicles displaying only one license plate must park with the plate facing the travel portion of the parking lot” – is required for the reader camera to function.

Ongoing employees wishing to elect payroll deduction should use their campus log in at https://sis.uwgb.edu/parking/employee/  (online payroll deduction will close September 5, 2017).  After logging in please complete these two steps:

  1. Verify your license plate information from last year is accurate, or make the necessary changes.   You may enter more than one vehicle license plate, but only one vehicle can be parked on campus at a time. The permit holder is responsible for the accuracy of the information provided to the parking permit system.  AND
  2. You must check the box and agree to the payroll deduction terms.

Ongoing employees choosing not to use payroll deduction or who want to purchase term permits can do so at the Bursar’s office with cash or check.  Please enter plate(s) at https://sis.uwgb.edu/parking/employee/ prior to payment at the Bursar’s office.

Ad Hocs, Associate Lecturers, University or Academic Staff temporary or those who work on campus but are not employees of UWGB, must go to the Bursar’s office to purchase a Virtual Permit with cash or check and to enter plates since payroll deduction is not available.

Here are some comments from employees who participated in the Bellin Run on Saturday, June 10th:

  • The Bellin Run was a blast, as always!
  • Nice weather – warm, but not too warm in morning with a nice breeze.
  • The corral start went much quicker this year. This was really nice since it was going to be warm as the day went on.

Michael Holstead finished the run with the quickest time of our team.  Team Captain, Sam Goeller, is shown in the red tank top with My Team Triumph providing race support to a participant with a disability.  Donna Mleziva is shown in the starting corral area, and Kimberly Vlies and her sister got some fun pics with Green Bay Packer players (shown with Davon House).  Great job team!
