5 ¢ENTS WORTH

by Grant Nichols

We were present for the Titusville vs. Bradford “Y” Dual Swim Meet held in Titusville, Saturday, October 26th, where we picked up a couple of photos for this issue. After a few start-up delays, the event went along smoothly where the Bradford “Y” Barracudas swam away with a win for the meet…….On Monday of this week we visited the School Street Elementary School where we spent time in Mrs. Rhoades fourth grade classroom and in Miss Hunter’s Art Room. The students in Mrs. Rhoades room had selected books from the classroom library and were working at silent reading of their choice. Our readers will see from the caption lines of the photos included in this issue that these students showed a surprising diversity in choice of reading. In the art room, Mrs. Peterson’s third grade students were receiving instruction in the rudiments of art and design, specifically, a lesson on the various qualities of the line……..Our Halloween pages this week, pages 8 & 9, include the following sponsors Cavallaro’s “How YA Brewing,” Burns & Burns Associates, Inc., Dexter’s Service & Collision, Tasta Pizza, Timeless Treasures Gift Shop, Copy Connection, Bottorf Embroidery and Screen Printing, and the Bradford VFW Post #212…….Gasoline prices continue to vary in a strange away around Pennsylvania. We would think that places closest to oil production and refineries would have the lowest prices, considering lower transportation costs. But that has never been the case in Northwest Pennsylvania. The highest prices in the State to our recollection, can usually be found in locations along a diagonal from Pittsburgh toward Bradford. On the other hand, our computer driven price checks around the state, on most occasions, find prices 10 to 30 cents per gallon cheaper in Erie and most other areas of the state to the East of Bradford. The prices in the Southeast of Pennsylvania have been consistently and dramatically lower than ours over the last six months. So what are we to think about this phenomenon- the “Pittsburgh-Bradford Diagonal?” Obama, when he was running President had his ideas, and many who have experienced the area of the State in question have noticed other things that were peculiar about this region. Perhaps it’s a case of pricing that begins with establishing a distribution network in which there is an agreement by various companies to receive gasoline at a set price and distribute gasoline at a set rate- the going rate for the area, and then “charging whatever the traffic will bear” for those customers who live within the network.

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “The Lies MUST Stop” -by Bob Perry

The Supreme Court has been challenged numerous times on lies, and the 1st Amendment has proven to have unbridled protection from the Court. In June 2012 the Court handed down a decision that the Stolen Valor Act, (a law created in 2006 to combat phony claims of heroism in battle during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars), violates the 1st Amendment. The case was about an local elected official (Xavier Alvarez) in California making claims to have been wounded several time by one soldier and subsequently been awarded the Medal of Honor. All he claimed was false. Did the Court get it right in its 6-3 vote? By this decision, the Stolen Valor Act was declared unconstitutional and seems to have cemented the right to lie in most any case. When it comes to the oath of office for the President, the elected President swears to “…..to the best of my Ability, ..”. If the President lies to us, the electorate, than he has proven his ability to lie. A liar is a liar and this is unquestioned, not a Christian virtue. Most other oaths do not include ‘to the best of my ability..”, but they do swear to

the ‘constitution of’ and this implies doing what is best for the ‘sovereignty of..’. Lying is NOT doing what is best for… In my humble opinion, any and all elected officials have lost their right to lie to the very people that elected them. The Court in the decision regarding the Stolen Valor Act was focused upon the Act itself and not upon the ability and right of an elected official to lie. We need a case be brought before the Court specifically on the right to lie before the electorate. The real problem with lies, is that they create a perception that in itself is hard to change. Next election do some research on the candidates and see who has been observed in the despicable act of lying. If one declares to be a Christian, or to have Christian virtues, and tells lies, that one does NOT have Christian virtues. Vote for one that has proven Christian virtues. I am convinced that if elected official we forced to face the likes of Eric Butterbean Esch in a boxing ring after telling a lie, the lying would stop!!!!!!!!!!!

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Don’t Ignore Tax Deduction For Moving Expenses Whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, moving is expensive. By the time you’ve paid to have your household goods packed and moved, cancelled and reconnected utilities and racked up storage fees, you could easily be out thousands of dollars. Many people don’t realize that if they’re moving to start a new job, transferring with a current employer or even returning to the U.S. to retire after working abroad, their moving expenses may be tax deductible. Plus, moving expenses are an “above-the-line” deduction, which means they reduce your adjusted gross income and can be claimed even if you don’t itemize deductions. Two tests generally must be satisfied to claim a moving-expense deduction: Distance test. The distance between your new job and your former home must be at least 50 miles farther than your previous workplace is from that home. For example, if you used to work 10 miles from home, your new workplace must be at least 60 miles from your old home. If this is your first job or you were unemployed, the job must be at least 50 miles from your old home. Time Test. Regular employees must work full-time at least 39 weeks during the 12 months after moving, although the weeks needn’t be consecutive or for the same employer. (For self-employed people, it’s 78 weeks during the first 24 months.) If you moved this year, you can claim the deduction on your 2013 taxes even if you haven’t yet met the time test, provided you expect to during the coming year. If you later fail to meet the time test, you must reverse the deduction, either by including the amount as “other income” on your 2014 tax return, or by filing an amended 2013 return. Qualified moving expenses include: • Costs for packing and transporting household goods, personal effects, pets and vehicles. • Fees to disconnect and/or connect utilities. • Travel costs for you and household members to the new home. (Meals cannot be charged). • Use of your car during the move. • Storing and insuring your possessions for up to 30 days. • Note: Family members needn’t move at the same time nor by the same means of transportation. Expenses that do not qualify include: • Expenses of buying or selling a home, including closing costs, mortgage fees, house-hunting expenses, home improve-

-by Jason Alderman ments or new furnishings. • Loss on the sale of your old home. • Charges for signing or breaking a lease. • Fees for new car tags or driver’s license in your new locale. • Expenses incurred on side trips en route to your new home (e.g., sightseeing). • Security deposits (including any given up due to the move). • Also, you cannot take a moving expense deduction and a business expense deduction for the same expenses. See IRS Publication 521 for all eligible and ineligible expenses and other details about the moving expense deduction. To file for the deduction, complete IRS Form

3903 and attach it to a Form 1040 Income Tax Return. You don’t need to complete a Schedule A unless you are otherwise itemizing deductions. (You cannot claim moving expenses on a 1040EZ Form.) Also note: If your employer reimburses you for any deductible expenses, you must reduce your moving deduction by that amount; and, employer reimbursement for non-deductible expenses will likely be treated as wages on your W-2 Form. Take a few minutes to calculate whether you qualify for the moving expense deduction – you could save a bundle on your taxes

Dexter Service & Collision Halloween Safety Tips:

With many communities holding trick-or-treat nights, PennDOT is urging motorists to slow down and watch carefully for little princesses, witches and pirates. Children are unpredictable – and even more so when they’re excited -- which means motorists need to slow down and expect the unexpected. We’re also asking parents to help by reviewing safety tips with their children and helping them to choose safe costumes. Motorists should be extremely cautious on neighborhood streets as children may dart out between parked vehicles or walk on the side of the road. In addition to motorists, parents and guardians can help increase safety and visibility of children by following a few simple tips: •Buy or make brightly-colored, highly-visible costumes that do not interfere with a child’s ability to see, hear or walk; •Consider adding strips of reflective tape to darker-colored costumes or trick-or-treat bags; •Encourage children to carry a flashlight or glow stick; •Accompany young children while they are trick-or-treating; •Remind children to pay attention to their surroundings and to look both ways before crossing a street; and

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Creating The Next Generation Of Lifesavers (NAPSI)—Nearly 360,000 people experience cardiac arrest out- side of a hospital each year and most of those victims die, often because bystanders don’t know how to start CPR or are afraid they’ll do something wrong. The American Heart Association believes kids are the answer to saving more lives. How That Works The nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, the American Heart Association, is helping prepare more students, their teachers and their families to save lives with the CPR in Schools Training Kit™. The hands-on, interactive kit is based on the latest science and makes it easy for educators to train the next generation of lifesavers in 30 minutes or less. Students practice CPR with their own inflatable manikin while watching and learning from a DVD such lifesaving techniques as hands-only CPR, giving breaths, choking relief and how to use an automated external defibrillator. The portable kit can be reused to train a whole class, grade or school. Each kit comes with 10 manikins and instructional DVDs so kids can take training home and help pass these lifesaving skills on to their family and community. Doctor’s Opinion “Four out of every five out-of- hospital cardiac arrests occur in private or residential settings, so we have to find ways to emphasize the importance of knowing CPR to save the lives of family members and loved ones,” said Robert W. Neumar, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the University of Michigan Medical School’s Department of Emergency Medicine. “The kits enable educators to teach students lifesaving CPR and empower schools to serve the families in their communities,” added Neumar, who serves as Chair of the

American Heart Association’s Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee. Learn More: Lawmakers in 12 states are requiring all students to be trained in psychomotor skill-based CPR before graduating from high school. Seven states have laws in place or that go into effect this school year, and five more have passed laws that will be implemented in the future. To learn more about CPR in Schools legislation, go to http://beCPRsmart.org For further facts about CPR in Schools, go to: http://beCPRsmart.orgheart.org/cpr and www.heart.org/CPRinSchools or call (877) AHA-4CPR or (800) AHAUSA1.

Two of these, alpha- and beta-carotene, promote cell-to-cell communication, reducing risk of uncontrolled cell growth that can lead to cancer. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two “cousin” carotenoid compounds that are concentrated in the lens and retina of our eyes. They protect eye health by filtering out high-energy UV rays, known as blue light, that can create damage. Winter squash is also a good source of vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber, all with about 75 calories a serving, about a cup of cooked squash cubes. Spaghetti squash is a little lower in calories, fiber and the nutrients noted above. Its preparation is unique, too, since after cooking, you can pull its

strands out with a fork to serve like spaghetti. The other squash each have slightly distinctive flavors and textures, and all make savory additions to soup, stir-fries, stews, curries and mixed oven-roasted vegetables. Each can be baked, steamed or microwaved to serve stuffed, in chunks or puréed, often accompanied with sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger), fruits (such as apples or cranberries) or nuts. Acorn squash are small with a very hard rind, so they are often cut in half and baked without peeling. Butternut squash is sweet and moist with a slight nutty flavor, and the skin is easy to peel, so they are great when you want chunks to roast or add to stews. Buttercup squash has a delicious sweet flavor, but because it can be a bit dry, use it in moist dishes like soups. Don’t be afraid of large squash like Hubbard, because you can freeze the leftovers or any you don’t use, either in raw slices or after cooking in cubes or puréed.

He is reading a little biography entitled Tom Brady (of the New England Patriots). Seeing the other books on his desk that he was about to read, we would say that Noah is a sports and action type of guy.

Easy Chicken Parmesan

FAMILY FEATURES

amily schedules can get hectic, but it doesn’t have to be hard to make time for a great family dinner. Whether it’s a hearty dish of Bolognese or lighter vegetarian fare, quality ingredients and easy recipes can help you get a great dish on the table in no time. The whole family will love the Latin-inspired flavors found in Chorizo Bolognese. Ground beef, chorizo, sliced olives and adobo seasoning are cooked in tomato sauce and poured over pasta. Look for canned tomatoes and sauces, like those from Hunt’s®, which are 100 percent natural and free from artificial preservatives. Hunt’s uses hot water to peel their tomatoes with FlashSteam® instead of being peeled with harsh chemicals like other leading brands. When you’re taking the time to prepare homemade meals for your family, it’s important to use quality ingredients. Another crowd pleaser is Easy Chicken Parmesan. Start by combining grated Kraft® Parmesan cheese with diced tomatoes flavored with basil, garlic and oregano. Coat each chicken breast with the delectable sauce and place it in the oven. While it bakes for 30 minutes, you can help the kids with their homework or enjoy a little time to yourself. For those looking for a meatless option, try the Vegetarian Lasagna Skillet with a pre-prepared Alfredo sauce to help save you time. Combine the creamy white sauce with pasta, zucchini, beans, fire roasted tomatoes and part-skim mozzarella cheese and it’s ready in just 30 minutes.

Understanding Medicare

by Patricia Smith (NAPSI)—During Medicare’s annual open enrollment period, which ends December 7, millions of Medicare beneficiaries must decide on their Medicare Advantage (MA) health plan for the coming year. While many factors go into deciding about a plan—cost, choice of doctors, benefits—there’s one important question Medicare beneficiaries should ask: What is the quality rating of the plans I’m considering? A high rating means better health care and the best value for your money. Medicare uses a system called Star Ratings. Plans receive a rating of up to five stars. These ratings are based on things like how well the plan does at keeping people healthy by making sure they get the treatments, tests and vaccines they need to prevent illness, how quickly you can get an appointment and see specialists, and how the plan responds to your complaints and concerns. For 2014, over a third of MA plans will receive four or more stars, which is an increase from 28 percent in 2013. Seven of the 11 MA plans earning five stars this year are members of the Alliance of Community Health Plans, an organization representing the nation’s leading health plans. You can learn more about MA plans— and their quality ratings—using the Medicare Plan Finder at: www.Medicare.gov MA plans are called “Medicare Health Plans” in the Plan Finder. The National Committee for Quality Assurance also evaluates quality in MA plans; those rankings can be found at www.ncqa.org • Ms. Smith is president and CEO of the Alliance of Community Health Plans, www.achp.org

Pairing Beef And California Avocados Creates Craveable Dishes (NAPSI)--Recently, numerous home cooks competed in the 2013 National Beef Cook-Off contest, funded by The Beef Checkoff. This year, contestants were challenged with a new recipe category— Craveable Fresh Beef and Fresh California Avocado. Contestants developed flavorful and nutritious dishes that paired delicious lean beef and creamy California avocados. Many experts say lean beef—filled with protein, iron and B vitamins-can help satisfy you and maintain a healthy weight, build muscles and fuel an active lifestyle. California avocados are also nutrient dense, in that they provide substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients with relatively few calories. In fact, one-fifth of a medium avocado (1 oz.) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients. Take This To Heart Research also shows that eating lean beef, even daily, as part of a heart-healthy diet and lifestyle improved cholesterol levels. A 3-oz. serving of lean beef provides 25 g (about half) of the daily value for protein, which is one of the most satisfying nutrients. In a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from Penn State University found that people who consumed lean beef daily as part of a heart-healthy diet experienced a 10 percent decline in LDL “bad” cholesterol. California avocados also fit into a hearthealthy diet, providing “good fats,” 0.5g polyunsaturated fat, 3g monounsaturated fat, and no cholesterol per 1-oz. serving. Additionally, a 1-oz. serving of avocado contains 26 milligrams of beta-sitosterol, a natural plant sterol that may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Healthy Cravings The theme of this year’s National Beef Cook-Off contest was “Making the Most of My Plate,” which encouraged delicious, nutritious recipes using ingredients from a variety of food groups. Here are two of the delectable recipes that were created by finalists in the Craveable Fresh Beef and Fresh California Avocado recipes category. Tuscan Burgers & Avocado-Tomato Spread Total preparation & cooking time: 30 minutes Makes 4 servings 1 ripe, fresh California avocado, peeled and seeded

1 pound ground beef (95% lean)

1/3 cup finely chopped fresh fennel bulb (core removed) 1. Mash avocado in small bowl (should be chunky, not smooth). Add sun-dried tomatoes and half of garlic; mix well. Set aside. 2. Combine beef, remaining garlic, 2 tablespoons minced basil leaves and salt in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four ½-inchthick patties. 3. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes to medium (160° F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove patties from skillet. Place buns, cut side down, in skillet; cook 1 minute or until lightly toasted. 4. Place burgers on bottom of buns; top each with equal amounts avocado-tomato spread, fennel and remaining basil leaves. Close sandwiches. Cali-Avocado Steak Salad Total preparation & cooking time: 30 minutes Makes 2 servings 1 boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick (about ½ pound)

4 cups mixed salad greens 1. Rub both sides of beef steak with 1 teaspoon olive oil; sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. 2. Cut bottom and top off orange. Remove remaining skin from orange; cut into segments; reserve. Cut avocado in half; remove seed, but do not peel. Squeeze juice from two cut ends of orange over cut sides of avocado, then brush with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with remaining salt. 3. Brush both sides of naan bread with 2 teaspoons olive oil. 4. Place steak on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145° F) to medium (160° F) doneness, turning occasionally. During last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling, place avocado, cut side down, and naan bread on grill; turn bread once. 5. Toss salad greens with remaining olive oil and pepper. Add orange segments to salad. Remove skin from grilled avocado. Cut avocado into slices; add to salad and toss gently. Carve steak into thin slices; place on top of salad. Cut naan into wedges; arrange around salad.

Heart Health—Managing High Blood Pressure In Winter (NAPSI)—Fall and winter months can bring busy schedules and seasonal illnesses that make it difficult to manage high blood pressure (HBP). The good news is there are simple, practical steps you can take to manage the condition year-round and enhance your health. By managing your blood pressure, you can lower your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, peripheral artery disease and kidney disease. Here are 10 tips from the American Heart Association to assist you in maintaining a healthy blood pressure level. 1. Stay informed. It’s estimated that nearly 20 percent of those with HBP are unaware of their condition. This symptomless disease could leave you with substantial health problems. If you don’t know if you have it, see a health care professional to be tested. 2. Take your prescriptions. If you are on prescription medication for high blood pressure, take it regularly and consult your health care provider before taking any over-the-counter medications or supplements. Use a labeled pillbox to help you keep track of your medicines during the busy fall and winter months. 3. Eat a healthy diet. Aim to eat a diet that’s rich in fruits, vegetables, whole-grain and high-fiber foods, and fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and reduce sugar and sodium. If your holiday meal traditions aren’t as healthy as you’d like, modify ingredients or add a healthy new dish to the menu. 4. Get 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Exercise not only helps control your blood pressure, it also helps you manage your weight, strengthen your heart and manage stress. When the temperature drops, find safe, indoor places to exercise. 5. Maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight, a little weight loss can result in a lot of health gains. Even a small weight loss—10 pounds—can help to reduce blood pressure. 6. Avoid sudden exertion. Peo-

ple who are outdoors in cold weather should avoid sudden exertion, like lifting a heavy shovel full of snow. Even walking through heavy, wet snow or snowdrifts can strain a person’s heart. 7. Avoid tobacco smoke. Smoking cigarettes increases blood pressure, decreases exercise tolerance and increases the tendency for blood to clot. Make quitting a resolution for the holidays— and stick with it! 8. Stay well. Some illnesses, like influenza, pose added risks for people with heart disease. Wash your hands regularly, and make sure your doctor knows about any medicines or supplements you’re taking in order to make the best treatment decisions. Patients with heart disease should receive the flu vaccine. 9. Read labels on cold medicines. Winter colds may have you reaching for remedies at the drugstore. You should

always read the labels on over-thecounter (OTC) medications, especially if you have blood pressure greater than 120/80 mmHg. People with high blood pressure should be aware that decongestants may raise blood pressure or interfere with the effectiveness of some prescribed blood pressure medications. Check the sodium content, too. Some OTC medicines contain more than 1,500 mg—a whole day’s allowance. 10. If you drink, limit alcohol. Men should limit alcohol to no more than two drinks per day and women to one drink per day. Drinking too much alcohol can raise your blood pressure. Your doctor may advise you to reduce the amount of alcohol you drink. Learn more online at: www.heart.org/HBP. Merck Consumer Care, maker of Coricidin® HBP, is a sponsor of the American Heart Association’s High Blood Pressure website.

• Comfort: Comfort is key when having guests over for the holidays. Help your guests feel at home by finding out their favorite recipe ahead of time and surprising them with the dish. • Gifts: Fill containers with the ingredients for one of Venable’s recipes. Add a personalized gift tag and you’re good to go! • Present wrapping: First, find all your favorite holiday music. Second, mix yourself a cocktail (try Venable’s classic holiday eggnog!). Third, make sure you’ve got paper, boxes, tape and scissors. It’s

easiest to tackle the wrapping by doing a little here and there when you can. Venable is the author of the best-selling cookbook “QVC’s Resident Foodie Presents: Comfort Foods That Take You Home.” Each week, he gives millions of viewers an inside look at his “kitchen” as the host of QVC’s most popular cooking show, “In the Kitchen with David®,” which airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. (EST) and Sunday at noon (EST).

Dexter Service & Collision Halloween Safety Tips:

With many communities holding trick-or-treat nights, PennDOT is urging motorists to slow down and watch carefully for little princesses, witches and pirates. Children are unpredictable – and even more so when they’re excited -- which means motorists need to slow down and expect the unexpected. We’re also asking parents to help by reviewing safety tips with their children and helping them to choose safe costumes. Motorists should be extremely cautious on neighborhood streets as children may dart out between parked vehicles or walk on the side of the road. In addition to motorists, parents and guardians can help increase safety and visibility of children by following a few simple tips: •Buy or make brightly-colored, highly-visible costumes that do not interfere with a child’s ability to see, hear or walk; •Consider adding strips of reflective tape to darker-colored costumes or trick-or-treat bags; •Encourage children to carry a flashlight or glow stick; •Accompany young children while they are trick-or-treating; •Remind children to pay attention to their surroundings and to look both ways before crossing a street; and

Are You At Risk For Type 2 Diabetes? Four Easy Tips For Prevention (NAPSI)—Diabetes affects more than 20 million people in the United States, and many of those who have diabetes are older adults. A study in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that baby boomersborn between 1946 and 1964-are more likely to be obese and have diabetes compared to their parents, despite significant medical advances during baby boomers’ lifetimes. The good news is older adults can take steps to prevent the more common Type 2 diabetes. “We know based on a large clinical trial, the Diabetes Prevention Program, that the best way to prevent Type 2 diabetes is through making healthy lifestyle choices,” said Marc Jaffe, M.D., Kaiser Permanente endocrinologist. “Even small changes can make a difference, and it is never too late to start making healthier choices.” Below are a few basic questions, answers and tips to help you understand and prevent diabetes. What Is Type 2 Diabetes And Why Should I Care? Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition. It prevents your body from turning food into energy. Diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and amputation. How Do I Know If I’m At Risk For Developing Diabetes? Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include having prediabetes, being age 45 or older, having a family history of diabetes, being overweight, not exercising regularly, having high blood pressure, having low HDL (also known as “good” cholesterol) and/or high levels of triglycerides, being a member of certain racial and ethnic groups (e.g., Non-Hispanic Blacks, Hispanic/Latino Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and American Indians and Alaska Natives), and being a woman who had gestational diabetes. How Do I Prevent Diabetes? 1) Stay At A Healthy Weight. A healthy weight is one that is right for your body type and height and is based on your body mass index (BMI) and the size of your waist. Losing as little as five to 10 pounds can make a big difference in your risk of developing diabetes, and can also improve your blood pressure, cholesterol, mood and self-confidence. Maintaining your weight is also important, because the natural tendency is to gain weight as you age. So if you don’t gain weight, that’s a victory, too. 2) Exercise Regularly. Exercise 150 minutes a week. Try walking 30 minutes a day at least five days every week. It’s

fine to be active in blocks of 10 minutes or more throughout your day and week. If you’re able, walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator. It’s wise to check with your physician before starting an exercise program. 3) Eat Healthy. Eat a balanced diet, including whole grains, lean sources of protein, and vegetables. Lose weight if you need to, by eating fewer calories and exercising more. For example, try having a salad instead of pizza. 4) Quit Smoking. Although tobacco does not increase the chances of diabetes, it can increase the chances of heart attack and stroke, so it is especially important to avoid tobacco if you are also at risk of developing diabetes. To learn more about diabetes, visit www.kp.org and click the health & wellness tab. Also, check out www. kp.org/carestories for videos about diabetes and other conditions. For questions and advice about a specific condition, consult with your physician. • Marc Jaffe, M.D., is a Kaiser Permanente endocrinologist and internist at Kaiser Permanente South San Fran-

Find The Fun In Healthy Eating (NAPSI)—Keeping kids healthy can be a tough job. Sometimes, the things that are good for kids aren’t always what they want. But moms know that eating healthy and being active can help kids grow strong bodies and lower their future risk of obesity and health problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer. It can also help them do better in school. Start by being a good role model. Kids are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables if they see you eating them, too. Be a good role model by staying active and doing activities the whole family can enjoy. There are also many ways to make healthy eating fun. One way is by encouraging kids to help in the kitchen. When kids help pick and cook food, they are more likely to eat it. Younger kids can tear lettuce for salads or rinse fruits and vegetables while older kids can chop and slice. The Network for a Healthy California provides these and other mom-tested tips to empower families to live better by eating more fruits and vegetables and being active every day. The tips come from Champions for Change, real moms who are role models for healthy change. You don’t have to turn your life upside down to make healthy changes. Even small changes add up quickly to make a big difference, like adding fruit to cereal or of-

fering crunchy carrots instead of chips as a snack. Here are more mom-tested tips on how to make healthy change fun: • Kids get excited when they can pick what they are going to eat. Have them pick the fruits and vegetables they want to pack in their lunch each day. • Keep fruits and vegetables in easy-toreach places at home to encourage healthy snacking. Leave a bowl of fresh fruit on the table and cut vegetables in the fridge. Get a mix of dried fruits and let kids make their own trail mix. • Make shopping fun. Let kids pick three colors of fruits and vegetables to try, or choose three fruits to snack on during the week. • Be creative when cooking. Try fun ideas like arranging different vegetables on pizza to make a face. Use slices of bell pepper for the mouth and eyebrows, olives for the eyes, and a cherry tomato or carrot for the nose. • Play together. Turn off the TV and turn up the music. Have a dance contest to everyone’s favorite songs. Enjoy the outdoors and go for family walks, ride bikes together or play at a local park.

Put The Cloud To Work For Your Business (NAPSI)—Small business owners across the country are increasingly taking advantage of “cloud computing”—technology that allows them to store files securely and access them remotely. With no hardware to install or maintain, cloud computing is an easy and efficient way to back up and safeguard computers, external hard drives and network attached storage (NAS) devices. However, many small business owners are missing out on the benefits of the cloud, and may also be sacrificing the profits that can come with this upgrade. OfficeMax recently launched OfficeMax Services Centers in all of its stores nationwide to offer specially-tailored services and solutions to small business owners, including online backup from Carbonite and cloud storage from MiMedia. Here are some tips from the OfficeMax Services Center on how to effectively put cloud storage to work for your business. Protect your business with banklevel security The cloud provides a safeguarded central location to encrypt and store the most sensitive, confidential materials on enterprise-grade servers, including employee payroll information. In addition to cloud protection, OfficeMax works with Merchant Payroll powered by ADP and Paychex to absorb payroll needs and even file all state and federal taxes. Reduce hardware, paperwork and management costs Cloud storage offsets the cost of purchasing hard drives or memory upgrades—and who doesn’t like saving money? Plans are based on storage space needs and can be customized at any time. Benefits include less equipment to maintain and reduced management costs. Boost productivity with anytime, anywhere access In today’s competitive marketplace, staying connected means staying in business. It’s more important than ever to maximize productivity on the go, wherever you may be. Cloud storage allows the business and its employees to gain access to critical business information across multiple devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets. Get a meeting room Many small business owners know the feeling of scrambling to find a coffee shop with enough space to hold a quick meeting. OfficeMax now works with Regus to provide business customers with access to flexible office space, virtual office services, private meeting rooms by the hour and mobile business lounges to drop into to ensure

your needs are covered. Put real-time collaboration to work Cloud storage allows businesses to create shared workspaces for staff. By enabling multiple people to share files from multiple locations, employees can then access, review and work on the same files in real time. Rest assured with data backup and disaster recovery If your computer crashes or is stolen, or if the office experiences a fire

or burglary, how would your business get back critical data? Cloud storage allows you to easily save, back up, recover and restore all files remotely. An OfficeMax Services Center advisor can provide a tutorial on touch screen technology to help you back up these files while working on a mobile platform. For additional information about cloud computing and business solutions, visit the new Services Center inside of your local OfficeMax store or visit www.OfficeMax.com/Services

Money For The Holidays (NAPSI)—If earning some extra money for holiday gifts sounds like a good idea, you may want to go direct to direct selling. What That Is It’s the person-to-person sale of products and services at home or work, online or in a social setting-and on your own terms. Hundreds of companies with almost every product imaginable offer opportunities for budding entrepreneurs. According to the Direct Selling Association (DSA), direct selling is an excellent way to supplement your income. Nearly 16 million Americans work as direct sellers. These people run their own businesses, set their own schedules and establish their own goals-all while having fun earning extra money.

Helpful Hints If you’re considering direct selling, keep these tips in mind: • Choose a company whose products you would buy yourself. • Attend a party hosted by another company representative before you sign up-and ask lots of questions. • Choose a DSA member company so you know it abides by a strict Code of Ethics.
