Prices remain steady this year at $3.50 per box of coolaes. *'The girls will be taking pre-orders through Jan. 31, and the cookies will arrive the week of Feb. 21," said Katie Miller of the Girl Scouts' Aiken Service Unit. "We will be at both Walmarts, both Bi-Los, Lowe's, Kroger and Aiken Mall on weekends stiarting Feb. 25." This year's cookie choices include the classic Thin Mints, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, and Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies. The newest addition to the Girl Scout Cookie lineup is Shout Outs, a Belgian-style caramel cookie. "We have had this cookie, and it's very tasty. It's very sweet, but it has no high-fiiictose sweeteners or artificial flavors or preservatives," Miller said. Those interested in pre-ordering cookies who don't have a Girl Scout in their circle of friends can find one through the organization's website,, or by calling the Mountains to Midlands Council at (800) 849-GIRL, "The cookie sales help the Girl Scouts financially. The troops get money from each box sold, and the girls in each troop decide how to use the money. The girls also individually get cookie credits which th^ can use for summer camp or for programs throu^out the year," Miller said. "There are five goals for the cookie sale - life skills we want the girls to leam from it: money management, business ethics, people skills, decision making and goal setting. The girls are encouraged to set individual goals and to work together to set troop goals." latlliaiisss Pacer women's iiasketbaUtobeoiiTV > CBS College Sports network to air Pacers basketball game Saturday at noon. | IB Raymond Garwood, Falls Church, Va.
