It can be helpful for parents to schedule daily timeouts, though breaks a few times per week can do the trick as well. Timeouts can benefit moms who need a break during or after a long day. Such breaks can be restful and reenergiz- ing. Any woman can benefit from a time-out, but working mothers juggling careers and home life may be especially in need of scheduled breaks. Women who want to incor- porate more breaks into their daily routines should know that it's possible to do so, even on the most hectic days. • You don't need much time. A break doesn't need to be extensive to be effective. Schedule around 30 minutes for the timeout. That's just enough time to watch a sit- com, read a chapter in a book or enjoy a nice, steamy bath. • Choose a kid-free time of day. If possible, select a time- out period when the kids are away from home or you can be guaranteed some alone time. If this is not possible, make an arrangement with your spouse to look after the kids while you get some alone time. • Find an enjoyable activ- ity. Select an activity for the timeout that you may not have the opportunity to enjoy when other people or tasks require your attention. Listening to music, taking an exercise class, writing in a journal, engaging in artwork or oth- er crafts, or reading a book make for great timeout activi- ties. A timeout is not the time to catch up on chores. • Treat yourself on occa- sion. Build an extra treat into the time-out, such as a bite of a favorite dessert or purchas- ing a clothing accessory or a luxurious body butter. This can make the timeout even more enjoyable. Timeouts can be utilized by women who feel they need opportunities to unwind and put themselves first for a short time. of plates with eyebars where pin-connected splic- es occur," the website states. "Vertical members and outrig- gers use the cruciform beams or 'star iron' that was common in the 1870s and on bowstring truss bridges." According to Cooper's re- port, construction of the Iron Bridge was to be completed by January 1876. In Decem- ber 1875, Washer received a partial payment of $1,000 for work on the Patoka River bridge. In March 1876, the same month Alexander Graham Bell made the first success- ful telephone call, Washer re- ceived another partial pay- ment of $120, plus $2,943.50 as the "balance (of ) compen- sation for building an Iron Bridge across Patoka River per contract." According to Cooper, the bowstring truss bridge quick- ly became a notable Marion Township monument. "In June 1877, for example, when residents petitioned for a change in the road carry- ing the bridge, they had al- ready informally renamed the Sulpher Springs and Au- gusta Road as 'the Iron Bridge and Augusta Road,'" Cooper wrote. "The commission- ers also kept a close watch on the bowstring. In August 1889, they ordered the Mar- ion Township trustee to give notice to the parties who built a dam across the Patoka Riv- er 'at the iron bridge in said township' to remove same or suit would be brought by the county 'so that the dam will not damage said bridge or its abutments.'" According to a bridge re-in- spection report for Pike Coun- ty issued in 1980, the county's consulting engineers consid- ered the Iron Bridge "a unique structure of historical impor- tance." Cooper agreed with their assessment. "The significance of the Pa- toka River iron bridge extends well beyond nineteenth-centu- ry Pike County, Ind.," Cooper wrote. In addition, Cooper notes that the Iron Bridge was de- termined "SELECT" in a statewide historic bridge in- ventory conducted in 2010. The Iron Bridge, accord- ing to Cooper, has survived due to repairs and rehabili- tations undertaken since its erection, including in De- cember 1908, when coun- ty officials contracted with John Survant to refloor it. A major rehabilitation oc- curred in 1978 when the orig- inal stone abutments were encased in concrete, some rolled steel stringers add- ed, and more external sway braces welded on. "The county also built a timber structure above steel beams seated on raised abut- ment ledges," Cooper wrote. "Placed inside and some- what above the old iron su- perstructure, the new one re- duced the roadway to a width of 10 feet and 2 inches." Cooper noted that it was not surprising the Iron Bridge presented issues for contemporary traffic and that county officials want- ed to replace it "for vehicu- lar use." "The best preservation al- ternative would be to remove the whole assemblage from the Patoka River, recycle the 1978 additions, repair the original cast and wrought iron, relocate the super- structure to an appropriate pedestrian trail location, and rebuild the timber deck and roadway to the original spec- ifications," Cooper wrote. "The old superstructure restored to original strength should meet A ASHTO stan- dards for pedestrian load- ing," Cooper's report con- cludes. "And, without mod- ern add-ons, the super- structure will fully display the special and rare Smith Bridge Company design, originally erected by the once highly respected build- er, William T. Washer."
