5 ¢ENTS WORTH

by Grant Nichols

We stopped at the Hanley Park on a beautiful sunny day, Monday, April 24th to see how well the park was being utilized. And we walked away with a good deal of information that is included as photo editorial throughout this edition. We also stopped in on the first day of the YMCA’s Summer Swim Program to photograph many of last seasons Barracuda swim team members learning to be “land sharks.” Enjoy this week’s pictures.……..Remember the annual Bar Stool Open to be held this coming weekend, April 26th. As we mentioned in our last edition, the event is a putt-putt golf tournament wherein teams go from pub to pub, dressed in all types of costumes “whetting their whistle” as needed, and compete with one another at holes designed by each establishment. Join in on the fun and become a member of a team, or just sit at your local participating club and watch the fun.……..Stinkfest 2014 will take place Saturday, May 3rd in East Bradford. Sponsors for the special notice in this issue of the Bradford Journal are Hedlund Glass, The New Keystone, Man’s World, Bottorf Embroidery & Screen Printing, Smith’s Watch & Clocks, and Monte’s Restaurant….We continue with last week’s comments on the recent move to allow the use of Radar by local and township policemen in Pennsylvania. Such a change would certainly make a policemen’s jobs easier (speeding citations would be more easily upheld in magisterial courts), and make local elected government officials happy, since new funds thereby created would flow into their coffers without having to increase taxes. But there is a danger in all of this. Radiation! State troopers using radar devices suffer higher rates of testicular cancer. Again, one medical expert, suggests a potential for sperm mutation through random radiation, leading to an increased chance of birth defects, even if radar devices are positioned away from the user’s lap. In addition there have been no studies to determine the effects of random radiation poisoning when radar devices are used in densely populated areas. Just as cell phones have become suspect in brain cancer and head tumor production, so too, radar radiation is likely to cause undetected cellular anomalies in densely populated areas such as the townships and the cities. Obviously there will be those who pooh-pooh such concerns, but to those, we would suggest that they look into the history of the tobacco industry, where their 30-year denial of the cancer causing effects of smoking, resulted widespread malignancies and needless deaths.

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “Influence On Policymakers” -by Bob Perry

A new study has been conducted entitled ‘Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens’ by Martin Gilens of Princeton University and Benjamin I Page of Northwestern University. The study was dated April 9, 2014 and can be accessed at the following web site: (http://www.princeton.edu/~mgilens/ Gilens%20homepage%20materials/ Gilens%20and%20Page/Gilens%20 and%20Page%202014-Testing%20 Theories%203-7-14.PDF) This would certainly be a great subject to write on for college students as well as high school students. The study was done using four theoretical traditions which are: Majoritarian Electoral Democracy; Economic Elite Domination; Majoritarian Pluralism; Biased Pluralism. Note that there are numerous charts which depict consideration that were made in the study. Theories on Majoritarian Electoral Democracy are based upon policy being influenced by the collective will of average citizens with democratic elections being the power giver. Over time public policy changes little making the study hard to reach conclusions. Theories of Economic Elite Domination clearly are based on policy making being dominated by those who have substantial and excessive financial resources. There are differences of the elite in policy desires which are present from the far right thru the far left. Without question today we see influences as the political donations to candidates and parties has expanded to dangerous levels. Theories of Biased Pluralism, which is a struggle of unrepresented interest groups, showed in the study that public policy results in more influence by corporations along with business and professional groups. Notable the average worker is losing their voice and this is very visible in the fact the labor movement has been declining. Theories of Majoritarian Pluralism, which is the formation of policies that would be mostly representative of the needs and interests of the population in general, would impose pressure on policy makers to not take actions that would not negatively affect the general population. The intent of this is to prevent tyranny of various sorts. The issuance of paper money was cited as an example and today the issuance of

paper money could be identified as a tyranny against all of us. The study is impressive and suggests that all interested give it a read with an open mind. Consider it an education which will provide insights as to who has influence on policy makers and what influence you, as a voter, has. There are winners and losers on any policy that is made. There is a growing number of so-called winners who get Social Security, unemployment insurance, Medicare and food stamps. As long as the policies protect these benefits, the policy makers will make you feel like you have influence. We are threatened as a democratic society if the influence on policy making continues to tilt in the favor of special interest and elites.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Reining in Prom Expenses If you’ve got teenagers, you already know how expensive high school can be. Besides food, clothing and school supplies, a whole host of extracurricular activities are competing for a share of your wallet – even as you frantically try to save for college and your own retirement. One of the biggest expenses you’ll encounter is prom. Gone are the days of borrowing dad’s suit and crepe paper streamers in the school gym: Today’s proms are often more like a Hollywood premiere with limousines, designer gowns and swanky after-parties. I’m not kidding. According to a recent nationwide survey conducted by Visa Inc., the average U.S. family with a high school student attending the prom expects to spend $978 this year. Surprisingly, that’s down 14 percent from last year’s survey average of $1,139 per family. A few other interesting statistics the survey uncovered: • On average, parents plan to pay for about 56 percent of prom costs, with their kids picking up the remaining 44 percent. • Parents in lower income brackets (less than $50,000 a year) plan to spend an average of $733 – a considerable share of the family budget. Thankfully, that’s down significantly from last year’s $1,245 estimate. • Those earning over $50,000 will spend an average of $1,151. Here’s a breakdown of how those prom dollars typically get spent: • New prom dresses often cost $100 to $500 or more. • Plan on spending another couple hundred for shoes, accessories, flowers and professionally styled hair, nails and make-up. • New tuxedos cost several hundred dollars, not to mention the formal shirt, tie, studs and shoes you’ll need. Even renting all this will likely run over $150. • Figure at least $80 an hour plus tip to rent a limousine for a minimum of four to six hours. • Prom tickets typically cost $50 to $150 per person, depending on venue, entertainment, meals, etc. And don’t forget about commemorative photos. • The couple will probably need at least $50 for a nice pre-prom meal. • After-parties can run anywhere from a few bucks at the bowling alley to hundreds of dollars for group hotel suites. As with weddings and vacations, spending on prom can easily spiral out of control, especially if your teenager isn’t used to sticking to a budget. Use this as a learning experience by getting your kid involved making tough decisions, helping to prioritize expenses from vital to non-

essential. To help with the prom budgeting process, Visa launched a free smartphone app last year called Plan’it Prom. You simply enter your budgeted amounts for each item and then track actual spending on your phone or tablet as you shop. The app also includes budgeting tips, a photo gallery and a timeline for tracking preprom deadlines. Plan’it Prom is available at the iTunes store, the Google Play store and from www.practicalmoneyskills.com/ prom. Here are a few prom cost-saving ideas: • Shop for formal wear at consignment stores or online. As with tuxedos, many outlets rent formal dresses and ac-

cessories for one-time use. • Have make-up done at a department store’s cosmetics department or find a talented friend to help out. • Split the cost of a limo with other couples, or drive yourselves. • Team up with other parents to host a pre-prom dinner buffet or after-party. • Take pre-prom photos yourself and have the kids use their cellphones or digital cameras for candid shots at various events. Bottom line: You want to ensure your child has a memorable high school experience, but not at the expense of your overall budget.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE

Cancer And Your Bones: Important Facts Everyone Should Know (NAPSI)—Worldwide there are an estimated 1.5 million advanced cancer patients who experience the disease spreading to their bones. If you are a patient with cancer, or care for someone who is, here are a few facts you should know. Bone metastases, or the spread of cancer to the bone, can be a serious complication that often goes unaddressed and affects a substantial portion of patients with cancer from solid tumors, including: • More than two-thirds of advanced breast cancer patients. • Up to 90 percent of advanced prostate cancer patients. • Approximately 36 percent of advanced lung cancer patients. The Importance Of Bone Health If left untreated, bone metastases can weaken bones and even cause them to break. Therefore, it’s important for patients with advanced cancer to understand their bone health and speak with their doctors about the steps they can take to better protect themselves. “Patients and their loved ones may not understand the impact cancer can have on their bones,” says Rita Lusen, BreastCancer.org. “The Bone Health in Focus initiative provides resources, advice and tips to educate patients and caregivers, and encourages them to speak with their doctors about options to help prevent problems caused by cancer spreading to the bones.” Bone Health in Focus™ Initiative To help educate people on the importance of bone health, Amgen has collaborated with leading advocacy organizations, including BreastCancer.org, Us TOO In-

AICR HealthTalk

-by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN American Institute for Cancer Research Q. Will adopting a vegetarian diet help me lose weight? A: It may. Vegetarians, especially vegans (who eat no animal products at all) do tend to be less overweight than non-vegetarians. But to lose weight, you’ve got to eat fewer calories than you burn. Vegetarian diets typically include lots of vegetables and fruits, which contain fewer calories than the same size portion of most other foods. So by following this type of diet, you may automatically reduce your calories. Overeating even healthful vegetarian foods though, will likely keep you from losing weight. For example, a serving of vegetarian foods such as guacamole, cheese, nuts and seeds - are actually higher in calories than a serving of some seafood, poultry and lean meat. Other sources of excess calories from vegetarian foods include beverages like sodas, alcohol and even juice, smoothies and sweetened milk alternatives. Intervention studies show that as long as people limit calories, a vegetarian diet does not produce any greater weight loss than a non-vegetarian option. If you tend to eat portions larger than you need or eat in response to stress or emotions, those are habits to address regardless of the type of diet you eat. A vegetarian diet is one alternative for a diet that can both promote good health and provide filling amounts of low-calorie foods to promote weight loss. Even if you don’t completely adopt a vegetarian diet, you can replace some of your high calorie food and drinks with non-starchy vegetables and unsweetened drinks. You can also reduce your portion size of other foods to cut calories with a plant-focused, but non-vegetarian, eating pattern. ternational Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network and the National Lung Cancer Partnership, to develop a series of Bone Health Reports and other important resources as part of the Bone Health in Focus™ initiative. Bone Health in Focus provides tools and customized information for caregivers and patients living with prostate, lung or breast cancer, plus insights from physicians and patients, including personal stories and practical tips for effective communication about bone health. Learn More:To view the Bone Health Reports and learn more about bone health, visit www.bonehealthinfocus.com

What to Ask the Doctor When discussing your bone health with a healthcare provider, consider these important questions: 1) Am I at risk for bone metastases? 2) What are signs or symptoms of bone metastases? 3) Should I have a bone scan? How often? 4) What are my options? 5) What are the possible risks of bone metastases? 6) Where can I go for more information? 7) Is there anything else I should know?

Selecting a Watermelon With a thick rind covering the fruit inside, you may wonder how to choose the best watermelon at the market. Actually, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

1 Look the watermelon over.

2 Lift it up.

3 Turn it over.

You are looking for a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents.

The watermelon should be heavy for its size. Most of the weight (92 percent, in fact) is water.

The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun. Watermelon Pomegranate Toss Salad

Eldred Author’s New Book Recounts A Chilling Plane Crash (ELDRED, PA) — "N1XF Is Going Down," by author Steve Jackson is a real life story of a father and daughter who experienced a grueling plane crash. This new book out nationwide narrates how Pat and his companions found their way out of the thick Allegany forest and the small miracles of the day that can only be described as divine intervention. "November One X-Ray Foxtrot is going down," was Pat’s final transmission before impacting the trees. Screaming, "We're alive. Thank God we're alive," was what he remembered uttering aloud as he and his companions trudged through the knee-deep snow. With its tail still hanging up in the trees, they scrambled away from the mangled remains of N1FX. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. Jackson started to take flight lessons in early 2000, with the goal of attending Jamestown Community College. In 2002, he graduated as a Certified Flight Instructor with an Associates of Science in Professional Piloting from JCC and worked

I will clean out your basement, attic or garage; clear away debris; mow lawns; trim; do general yard work/clean-up and general handyman work

part time as a flight instructor in Jamestown, N.Y, a short time before moving to the Bradford Regional Airport and opening his own small flight school. He continues to train pilots in the area and was instrumental in forming Twin Tier Aviation

Inc., a successful flight club operating at the Bradford Regional Airport. Learning to fly was a childhood goal that required waiting until his children were through school. This book is dedicated to his supportive family and the memory of his loving mother, Maryetta Jackson.

The Kinzua East KOA Campground Now Open Mother And Daughters (KOA News Service) – The Kinzua East KOA Campground, located at Kinzua Heights Route 59 in Bradford, PA, is now open for the 2014 summer camping season. The Kinzua East KOA is one of 485 open-to-the-public KOA campgrounds in the Kampgrounds of America system in the U.S. and Canada. “We’ve got hundreds and hundreds of great KOA campgrounds throughout North America, and this KOA is a wonderful example of what we offer to our camping guests,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “We have campgrounds available for every type of camping and in locations that make camping convenient, no matter where you live or where you’re going.” To celebrate 52 years of serving campers, KOA is partnering this summer with Keystone RV Company and Weber Grills to offer two great prize packages through the KOA Take A Spin-To-Win Giveaway. Campers can enter to win one of two drawings. The initial prize, to be drawn during the Fourth of July weekend, will

be a 2014 Keystone Passport 238ML RV and a Weber Grill package. Drawing number two will be held during the KOA Value Kard Rewards Appreciation Weekend September 12-13. That winner will receive a 2014 Keystone Hideout 210HS RV and a Weber Grill package. Campers can enter at www. KOASpinToWin.com. Campers can pick up a new 2014 Edition of the KOA Directory absolutely free at any KOA campground. The Directory is a complete travel atlas of every U.S. state and Canadian province, and includes descriptive listings of each KOA campground as well as detailed maps and directions to each location. The digital edition of the 2014 KOA Directory is also available at http://koa.uberflip.com/i/268207 Kampgrounds of America is celebrating its 52nd Anniversary in 2014. KOA, the world’s largest network of family-friendly campgrounds with 485 locations in North America, was born on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Montana in 1962.

New Course Teaches Parents Lifesaving Skills (NAPSI)—For parents and child care providers, the stats about accidental injuries of children up to age 19 are daunting—but you can protect your own kids. The Problem More than 12,000 children die from accidental injuries each year and more than 9.2 million are treated in the ER for nonfatal injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control. A Solution To provide first aid and CPR skills, along with peace of mind, the American Heart Association—the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke—has a new online course, Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED, Part One. The course is designed to meet the training needs of child care providers in almost all 50 states but it’s also a robust resource for parents, grandparents, teachers, babysitters or anyone responsible for the care and safety of children. The Web-based, self-directed program uses real-life scenarios and interactive lessons to teach day care workers and others how to manage infants’ or children’s illnesses and injuries until emergency medical services arrive. Child care providers and others will learn critical first aid skills, ranging from how to create a safe environment to prevent injuries in the first place, to lifesaving CPR.

“Reacting quickly and effectively in an emergency is vital because unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death of U.S. children,” said Jeff A. Woodin, Lieutenant Firefighter/National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Paramedic. “This unique hybrid course with online and handson skill components educates child care providers and parents about the four steps of first aid and a variety of first aid skills,” said Woodin, who is Immediate Past Chair of the AHA First Aid Subcommittee and a member of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation First Aid Task Force. The training course is an all-in-one solution to learn four key steps in giv-

ing first aid: prevention, being safe, calling 9-1-1 and taking action. Additionally, the course includes adult CPR/ AED, child mask, infant mask and asthma care training. The course meets the regulatory requirements for child care workers, but its contents are also invaluable skills for parents to learn so they are empowered to care for their children in the event of an emergency. Learn More: Additional information about pediatric first aid and CPR is at www.heart.org/safekids. To learn more about the American Heart Association’s CPR and First Aid programs, call (877) AHA-4CPR or visit heart.org/cpr. To join or learn more about the AHA, call (800) AHA-USA1.

Tire Maintenance Is Key To Safe Summer Driving

(NAPSI)—Tires are the only thing between you and the road, so it’s imperative motorists stay on top of tire maintenance. Proper tire maintenance is important all year, but especially in the summer months as the temperature starts heating up and the frequency of tire blowouts increases. Improper tire care contributes to 195 fatalities and 6,300 injuries each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The agency also estimates that about 11,000 tire-related crashes occur annually. Simply checking your tire pressure can help you and your passengers stay safe during your next summer journey. To get the most from your tires this summer, here are five maintenance tips from the world’s largest independent tire and wheel retailer-Discount Tire: 1. Get Pressure Right—Low tire pressure can decrease fuel economy. Tires may lose up to one pound PSI (per square inch) of air pressure per month. The specific inflation pressure number may be found on the vehicle placard located inside the driver’s door. Don’t forget those trailer tires. Checking the tire pressure for boat, travel and utility trailers is as important as your car or truck. 2. Don’t Overload—Overloading your vehicle or trailer decreases fuel economy due to increased cargo weight. Handling, control and braking are also negatively impacted. 3. Rotate Before You Go—Regular rotation helps achieve uniform tire wear and improves road performance. Tires rotated every 5,000 miles have longer life and will help maximize your tire investment. 4. Straighten Up—Proper wheel alignment provides safe, predictable vehicle control and helps tires wear evenly and last longer. If your tires squeal when you turn or if you notice your steering wheel veers to one side while driving straight, it’s time to get your wheels re-aligned. 5. Bald Isn’t Beautiful—Lack of tread affects the tire’s ability to grip the road, especially in wet conditions. Make sure tires don’t have uneven wear, which indicates something is wrong with the tire. High or low spots or unusually smooth areas may decrease traction and increase the risk of road accidents. “Maintaining tire pressure is one of the most critical things motorists can do to improve road safety while getting the most from their tires,” said Mark Marrufo of Discount Tire. “Improperly inflated tires lead to decreased steering and braking control as well as excessive tire wear and fuel consumption. Taking five minutes each month to inspect your tires will go a long way in keeping you and your passengers safe.” A Five-Minute Fix Checking tire pressure and tread is easy

and can pay dividends when it comes to fuel economy and handling. Don’t go by appearances. Use a tire gauge to check the pressure since a tire can be 50 percent underinflated but still not appear flat. Make it a habit to check tire pressure every month and always before a long journey. Use the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure and don’t forget to check the spare and trailer tires. “Most people forget to check the pres-

Maintenance Pays

(NAPSI)—Many drivers find that if they want to make their car last, it pays to put it first. Taking good care of your car means you are more likely to avoid problems, both now, while you’re driving it, and later, when you sell it. To improve the life of your vehicle and its price at resale, it’s a good idea to get it serviced regularly. The car will not only run better, it will be highlighted on a Car-

sure in the spare tire and come to find that when they need it, the spare is flat,” said Marrufo. “This simple check could keep you from a costly tow if you get stuck with a flat.” Road trippers should also check tire tread depth by using the “penny test.” Insert a penny upside down into the tread. If you see Abe Lincoln’s entire head, it’s time to replace the tire. To learn more about tire safety, visit www.discounttire.com
