Photos in this edition include one that was taken before last week’s 50th year reunion of the BAHS class of 1963, in which one member of that class utilized the occasion to meet up with relatives from both near and afar. Seven more photos were taken around town on Sunday, July 21st, during which time we were reminded by one of our subjects that Wal-Mart Olean/ Allegany store, NY has effectively lower prices on equivalent items when compared with the local Bradford Wal-Mart store (even taking sales tax differences into consideration), and two final photos were taken on Monday July 22nd……..Our readers can expect a fundraiser to take place soon, to raise money for the next First Night Bradford. The event is called “FUN STOCK” and will be held in Limestone at Rock-N-Rick’s club there……..While Atlantic Broadband and its predecessors have held the cable franchise in this area for years, we think it’s time for the Townships and the City to review their most recent performance. Many in this area have seen their television and Internet service become more erratic and generally less reliable since the local cable company’s purchase by the Canadian company, Cogeco Cable. Since problems with the cable can adversely affect most modern operations, including businesses, Vonage-like telephone users (where computers are used to carry telephone calls), ambulance services, and even hospital services, it is imperative that something be done now. We suggest that those who have seen increasing problems since the Canadian company took charge (during the period from July 2012 and December 3rd 2012), contact their local government representatives to suggest alternative cable providers……..We noticed an interesting discrepancy during this week’s Internet search for weather information. It seems that the National Weather Service in State College states that the Bradford Regional Airport is 3 miles west of Bradford. Our maps show the airport to be 15.3 miles southeast of Bradford. While we’re sure that it’s just a temporary glitch, and someone at the weather service will correct it soon, for now, we’ll consider it, as the expression goes, “close enough for a government job”…….. Our system of free enterprise, private ownership, and capitalism seems to be economically and socially more viable than other systems that have sprung up over the ages. Unfortunately the driving force in all of these is based on a sufficient inculcation of greed, acquisitiveness, and consumerism in our population. It’s our opinion that these traits, unbridled by laws that control extremes, account for many of the world’s problems today. The solution to the problem is obvious, but we’re not so sure that the most powerful and greedy, really want the problem to be solved.

upon. The race debate will never end until an elected leader has the intelligence and wisdom to honestly have the essential debate with us. We may need to wait until such a leader arrives.

Jim And Great Dog

-by Bob Perry Once again the race issue has flared up due to opportunist symbolically throwing gasoline on the preverbal fire. Race was introduced into a national debate after the Zimmerman trial resulted in a ‘not guilty’ verdict when race was not an issue. Civil rights activist Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson injected race as an issue and as a result there is a nationwide reaction that is creating divide. The President took to the airways injecting his personal comments that is a very risky act that may taint his legacy since his comments will most likely increase racial division than unite them. I am still waiting for Obama to have an ‘honest conversation’ with the American Public on race unity and acknowledging he is not a typical black since he is biracial. Surely his mother will have this issue with him if ever there is reunion in the afterlife. He has a unique position in this respect and continues to fail to capitalize on it. His legacy would certainly be positive if he were to ‘unite the races’. With the attitude of “no crisis should go to waste” (Rom Emmanuel’s quote) still being exercised, non-relevant issues not in the trial are being vented: i.e., Gun Control and Stand Your Ground laws. After review of the Zimmerman trial I have concluded that the tragedy could have been averted had Trayvon Martin continued on home during the time lapse (approximately 4 minutes) that the defense presented. The time is accounted for as Zimmerman lost where Trayvon was. The evidence supported the claim that Trayvon returned to confront Zimmerman which did not turn out well. The injuries that Zimmerman received starting with the facial beating and subsequently the head injuries resulting from his head being hitting the concrete were evidence that Trayvon was the aggressor and having his way. Had Trayvon lived he would surely faced assault charges since he apparently initiated the physical confrontation. My head has hit the concrete before and hitting a solid immovable object will put one into shock. I found it a bit incredulous the defense attorneys did not cite that possibility that ‘the next head bang’ may well have rendered Zimmerman unconscious or even critically injured. The time to act was immediate, and ended in a tragic loss of life. Survival was the instinct acted

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Protect Yourself Against Credit Discrimination Have you ever been turned down for a credit card and wondered why? Or gotten approved for a car loan or mortgage but suddenly the interest rate and fees are much higher than in the initial quote? There are many legitimate reasons why people are denied credit – insufficient income or a poor track record on past loan repayments, for example. But sometimes people are denied credit because of discriminatory lending practices – which are not always easy to spot. Fortunately numerous federal and state laws prohibit lenders from discriminating in any part of a credit transaction on the basis of many personal characteristics. What’s more, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and other governmental agencies provide avenues for filing complaints if you feel you’ve been discriminated against. And, offending lenders face lawsuits and stiff penalties if found to be discriminatory. Under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) it’s illegal for creditors to discriminate against credit applicants based on their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status or age, because they receive income from a public assistance program, or because they have in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. Based on those criteria, lenders cannot: • Refuse you credit if you qualify for it; • Discourage you from applying for credit; • Offer you credit on terms that are less favorable than those offered to someone with similar qualifications; or • Close your account. Another federal law, the Fair Housing Act (FHA), prohibits discrimination by direct providers of housing, such as landlords, real estate companies, municipalities, banks or other lending institutions and homeowner’s insurance companies. Warning signs. Red flags that may indicate credit discrimination include: • You are treated differently in person than on the phone. • You are discouraged from applying for credit. • You hear the lender make negative comments about race, national origin, sex, or other protected groups. • You are refused credit even though you qualify for it. • You are offered credit with a higher rate than what you applied for, even though you qualify for the lower rate. • You are denied credit, but not given a reason why or told how to find out why. • Your deal sounds too good to be true. • You feel pushed or pressured to sign.

-by Jason Alderman If you believe a lender has discriminated against you for any reason, you can submit a complaint to the CFPB (www., which will review and route your complaint to the lender and work on your behalf to get a response. Once your complaint is logged, you will receive email updates and can log in to monitor the status of your complaint. To better protect yourself against credit discrimination – or from pursuing credit products that aren’t right for you: • Learn about the various features and downsides of the credit product you want. Research current interest rates and compare products from several lenders.

• Creditors make decisions based on your credit history, so make sure there are no mistakes or missing items in your credit reports. • Be sure you understand the rates and fees you’ll pay over the long run and ask whether they could change in the future. If a creditor doesn’t want to answer your questions, this could be a bad sign. • Don’t let lenders make you feel rushed or unnecessarily delay action on your application. Bottom line: Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure the credit product is right for your needs – both today and down the road.

picy, sweet or zesty, it’s never been easier to enjoy the crisp, tangy taste of homemade pickles. And with recipes like these you can preserve perfect pickles for any palate. Here are a few tips from the pickling pros at Mrs. Wages to help you give your cukes a kick of great homemade flavor:  Choose pickling cucumbers, not slicing cucumbers. Pickling cucumbers are short and blocky — about 4 inches long. They should be firm and green in color with no blemishes.  For pickles, you must cut off 1/16 inch from the blossom end to help prevent soft mushy pickles. The blossom end contains an enzyme that will cause softening.  Keep the cukes cool in the refrigerator until you have enough to make a batch, but do not hold them too long or you will end up with shriveled pickles.  Use real canning jars. Don’t use jars that once contained peanut butter, pickles, mayo, etc. Clear canning jars are what you need. Use flat lids (called either lid or flat) and a ring to seal the jar. Also check for nicks and cracks — these may cause seal failure. Find more tips, canning recipes and the Mrs. Wages Canning Guide at

Spicy Pickles Yield: 7 quarts 9 to 11 lbs pickling cucumbers (about 50 — 3 to 4 inches) 3 1/3 cups Mrs. Wages White Distilled Vinegar (5% acidity) 7 1/3 cups water 1 pouch Mrs. Wages Spicy Pickles Mix (Medium or Hot) Prepare and process home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer’s instructions for sterilized jars. Wash cucumbers and remove blossom ends; drain. Leave whole, cut into spears or slice. Combine vinegar and water into a large non-reactive pot. Do not use aluminum. Bring mixture just to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat, add pickle mix and stir until dissolved. Pack cucumbers into sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace. Evenly divide hot pickling liquid among the packed jars, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace. Remove air bubbles and cap each jar as it is filled. If more liquid is needed for proper headspace, add a mix of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water (this mixture should be boiling hot). Process pints 5 minutes, quarts 10 minutes, in a boiling water bath canner. Test jars for airtight seals according to manufacturer’s directions. If jars do not completely seal, refrigerate and consume within one week. Product is ready to eat after 24 hours. Before serving, chill to enhance flavor and crispness. Note: Processing times are for altitudes less than 1000 feet. At altitudes of 1000 feet or more increase processing time 1 minute for each 1000 feet of altitude.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Five Important Steps Dental Patients Can Take To Protect Themselves From Infection (NAPSI)—Recent news reports about unsafe practices at a number of U.S. dental offices have raised concerns about dental infection control procedures and caused patients to question the safety of the dental offices they visit. A sterile environment is essential for a safe visit to the dentist and there are important safeguards that patients can take to minimize the risk of getting an infection during dental treatment, according to Noel Brandon-Kelsch, a registered dental hygienist and the infection control columnist for RDH magazine. “Since recent news broke about dentists who don’t follow proper dental safety procedures, a lot of patients have asked what things they should watch for when they are at the dentist,” said Brandon-Kelsch. “I encourage patients to start a conversation with their dental professional about infection control procedures. Good hygienists or dentists are happy to answer questions and put their patients at ease that they are doing everything possible to minimize infection.” Bacteria can be found in the most unexpected places, as a recent study found. Researchers at the Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts discovered that a significant number of dental bib clips—the metal or rubber clips that go around the patient’s neck to hold the dental napkin in place—still harbor bacteria from the patient, dental clinician and the environment even after the clips had undergone standard disinfection procedures. Kelsch recommends patients follow five tips to minimize their exposure to infection at the dentist office. • Request a disposable, one-time-use bib holder from your dental professional. • If a disposable bib holder isn’t available, ask the clinician to fully sterilize the rubber or metal bib clips. • Always make sure the clinician washes his or her hands and puts on fresh gloves before beginning treatment in your mouth. If the clinician touches anything else with his or her gloves—the bib clip, the computer, his or her face—you have the right to ask for a change of gloves. • Make sure you see the dental professional open a fresh sterilization pouch of instruments. If you don’t see it opened in front of you, ask how the instruments you see were sterilized. All dental instruments used on a patient should be sterile. • Make sure you see that the dental professional is wearing gloves, a lab coat over his or her uniform, glasses and a mask during all procedures, including a cleaning. If you notice that something is missing, give

Q: I’ve heard that watermelon is a good source of lycopene. Is watermelon as good a source of lycopene as tomatoes? A: Watermelon is rich in lycopene, a phytochemical that is a carotenoid “cousin” to beta-carotene. Lycopene from watermelon seems to be well absorbed without the cooking or presence of fat that so markedly increases how much lycopene we absorb from tomatoes. Research is limited, but in one human study, lycopene from raw watermelon juice was absorbed as well as the lycopene from heat-treated tomato juice. Tomato juice has been used in many studies, because it’s been shown to effectively provide lycopene that may help reduce risk of prostate cancer. And in a laboratory study that tried to mimic human digestion processes to see how carotenoid compounds are affected, researchers calculated that in equal weight portions, more lycopene would be absorbed from raw watermelon than from raw tomatoes. When you bring it home, keep uncut watermelon at room temperature for up to a week or until fully ripe. Not only will the melon get better tasting, research on uncut watermelon shows that lycopene content may even increase during room temperature storage. Refrigerate the watermelon once it’s ripe or after you’ve cut it in pieces, and use within five days. Watermelon is also an excellent source of vitamin C, and it holds on to virtually all of its vitamin C and carotenoid compounds during this storage period.

Celebrate Birthdays With One-of-a-Kind Homemade Cake (Family Features) There’s something about a homemade birthday cake that sets it apart from any other dessert. It’s a simple and delicious way to make a sweet statement for that special someone and show how much you care. “Birthdays cakes like our Raspberry White Chocolate Cake are indulgent celebratory centerpieces,” said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. “And, while this recipe may look complex, it’s surprisingly easy to prepare. It starts with a store-bought cake mix and is transformed into decadent layers of frosting, filling and flavor with a few simple additions.” Take the gesture of baking a cake one step further by personalizing it for the birthday guest of honor. Customizing for kids and adults alike is as easy as showcasing the honoree’s favorite flavors and colors or highlighting seasonal ingredients. Try these tips for turning your creation into a birthday delight: * Personalize the cake topping by swapping in fresh blueberries, strawberries or blackberries. Or, remove the fruit topping altogether and add a decorative shimmer with a sprinkle of colored sugar. Add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar with 5 drops of food color in a plastic bag and knead it gently until the color is evenly distributed. * Change up the filling color for a fresh look. Swap in blue food color for red in the raspberry filling to give this special cake a blue raspberry twist. For more festive birthday cake ideas, visit , and the “Cakes to Crave” pinboard.

Great Ways to Fuel Up After School

Bradford Journal & Miner Thursday, July 25, 2013 Page 17



runch time for most families is the frenzied, action-packed hours between the school’s dismissal bell and dinnertime. Squeezed in between is often a flurry of homework, sports practices, dance

classes, music lessons and hanging out with friends. The last thing most parents have time for is preparing snacks. Instead of unwrapping a candy bar or

driving through a fast food joint, pull out a healthy treat or put together a delicious dish in a matter of moments. For more great snacking ideas, visit

Farm Rich When crunched for time after school, between games or before practice, we understand that a quick and easy-toprepare snack is a must, but you also want to feed your family wholesome, real snacks. New Crispy Dill Pickles and Toasted Ravioli are great-tasting snacks made with real ingredients and ready to eat in minutes. Farm Rich — they’re real snacks for real families.

Popcorn For back-to-school snacking you can’t beat popcorn. Pop up a bowl and let the fun flavor creations begin — sweet, savory, or with just a dash of salt.

Go Bananas Frozen bananas are a quick, healthy treat. Cut a banana into four pieces, spear with a toothpick and freeze for two hours. Then melt chocolate chips in the microwave, dip each frozen banana pop into the chocolate until coated, shake off excess and place on waxed paper. Have the kids help out by embellishing each pop with chopped nuts, crushed graham crackers or colorful sprinkles. Once hardened, return the pops to the freezer until ready to enjoy.

Hints To Help You Both Get Out And About (NAPSI)—Good news for many new parents who’d like to get and stay fit: You can still get out for your daily run, bike ride or stroll—and bringing your baby along can make it much more fun. It’s done with the help of a multipurpose child transporter. Safer and sturdier than traditional strollers, they’re specially designed so you can run while pushing or pulling one and your child is secure and comfortable. Some are even made to work with skiers and cyclists. Pointers for Perambulating Parents Here are a few hints on how to make the most of your outing. • Before you set out, it’s wise to make sure your stroller is properly packed. Bring diapers, wipes, water (for you and your child), extra sweaters, snacks and a toy or two. • Watch the weather. Remember that you’ll feel warm when you’re running even if it’s cool out but your child may need a sweater, jacket, blanket, hat and mittens. On damp days, you may want to use a weather shield on the stroller. On sunny days, make sure you both wear sunscreen. • Strap your child in properly. Many of today’s strollers, joggers and trailers have good harnesses to keep your child safe and happy while out for a ride. • Try to avoid traffic. Stick to parks, bike paths and the like as much as pos-

sible. • Look at the time. A run or ride just before nap time can help baby drowse. One just before or after a meal may not be so good. • Don’t let it go. Pushing the stroller ahead and running hands free is not a good idea. Always use the safety retention strap that comes with your jogger or stroller. • Get a good-quality stroller. One multipurpose child transporter meets

or exceeds industry safety standards and has undergone years of internal and external field testing. Built with such features as an aluminum roll cage, enclosed cockpit and five-point child safety harness, the Chariot lets you and your child, from newborn through 5 years, travel five different ways through all the four seasons in style with just one stroller.

Fruit Bars And Gold Top The List Of Frozen Treats (NAPSI)—Whether it’s fruit flavored or chocolate covered, on a stick or in a cone, few things kick off summertime fun the way frozen treats can.

The Value Of Knowing (NAPSI)—It’s a question many have considered: If you had the ability to learn whether you had terminal cancer, a brain tumor or Alzheimer’s disease, would you want to know? Furthermore, would you really want to know enough that you would pay for tests out of your own pocket? If your answers are “Yes,” then you are not alone. Research from Siemens Healthcare and Harris Interactive shows that the vast majority of Americans—92 percent—agree that “the value of knowing exactly what is wrong with their health is as important as having access to a doctor in the first place” and nearly four in five Americans (78 percent) would want to have a test done to diagnose a disease, even if there is no treatment or cure available. Why? “In my experience with patients, they want to know the status of their health so they can plan for themselves and their family’s life in the best way possible,” said Gregory Sorensen, M.D., CEO of Siemens Healthcare North America and board-certified neuroradiologist. In the ongoing debate over health care reform and cost control, the voice of the consumer is often missing. Siemens’ research shows that, despite the fact that Americans across the country are tightening their belts during this sluggish economy, 66 percent would even be willing to pay out of their own pockets for tests to diagnose a serious illness. “There is simply a rational, financial and emotional value to knowing what’s wrong when you feel sick,” continued Dr. Sorensen. “The survey findings show clearly that Americans want to know exactly where they stand when it comes to their health.” While medical testing and imaging such as MRI and CT scans have come under scrutiny as the nation examines health care expenditures, the study actually shows that more than eight in 10 Americans (83 percent) agree that even if medical technologies and tests are expensive, they save money by helping doctors to get to the right diagnosis more quickly. Additionally, almost nine out of 10 Americans (87 percent) believe that ruling out a condition or illness can save money in the long run, by avoiding costly and unnecessary treatments. “Americans have great faith in the benefits of medical testing and imaging as a means to a correct diagnosis,” said Dr. Sorensen. “As a physician, I know that, effectively used, diagnostic tests can help more efficiently manage health care expenditures while providing patients with knowledge and peace of mind-as well as the best possible

care.” As the health care debate continues, it’s clear that Americans simply want to be in the know about their health whether it’s for reasons that are practical, emotional, fiscal or otherwise.

Drive On: Tips To Make Your Vehicle Road Trip Ready (NAPSI)—It’s summertime and the driving is easy. At least it should be, and fun too, especially with millions of vacation-hungry drivers preparing for the great American getaway, the annual summer road trip. Road warriors be warned, though: Hitting the highway for a long haul could turn fun into glum. Typical scenarios include the kids getting bored and antsy (“Are we there yet?” sound familiar?), the car/van/SUV is not exactly comfy (too hot, rough ride, etc.), you’re burning through fuel faster than your bank account can keep up, and/or you’re simply directionally challenged (“Uh, honey, are we supposed to be in Texas?”). So before you round up the family and friends and head toward the national park, theme park or a relative’s house a few states away, best to make sure your vehicle’s really ready to roll. “You want to first make a checklist of the essentials,” says Peter MacGillivray, vice president of events and communication for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), an automotive trade organization with 6,500-plus member companies. “The list should include things like getting your air conditioner serviced, checking the battery for corrosion, testing wiper blades (it might be time to change them), making sure the tires are properly inflated and aligned correctly, inspecting hoses and belts for cracks, and replacing all fluids: oil, transmission, brake, power steering, coolant, etc. That’s a good start.” The finishing touch, MacGillivray says, is to look into the bevy of cool automotive aftermarket products designed to enhance the road trip ride and the daily drive. “SEMA-member companies have been making innovative appearance, performance, comfort, convenience, fuel-saving and technology products for passenger and recreational vehicles for more than 50 years.” Consumers can find these products and more at For a summer road trip, MacGillivray offered some suggestions: • Beat the heat: There are tons of products designed to keep drivers cool and comfortable for the long, hot ride. They include window tinting and seat coolers. There’s even an app to tell you which side of the car the sun will be shining on during your vacation journey. • Getting there: There’s nothing worse than being lost, especially after a long day’s drive with impatient kids about to explode. Be prepared with a GPS-equipped smartphone, along with a docking station and Bluetooth devic-

es to ensure you’re able to use it handsfree. • Fuel for thought: With a tank of gas costing as much as a motel room, any way to squeeze more miles out per gallon is a welcome relief. An easy and inexpensive way to improve your gas mileage is by replacing your old paper/cotton air filter with a new performance-type air filter. Another product that may help to save on fuel costs is “low roll resistance” tires. • Creature comforts: Keep your passengers happy—especially the young

and restless ones—with boredom— controlling technology devices such as TV screens mounted in the seats and/ or dash, good for hours of video game playing and movie-watching fun. “If you’re going to be on the road a good amount of time, products like these can really make a difference,” says MacGillivray. “They can be found almost everywhere, from specialty shops to auto retailers to big box stores. And like everything else, they are also sold online.”

Streaming Entertainment Anytime, Anywhere (NAPSI)—A new way that many families get their entertainment these days is by streaming TV shows and movies. Perhaps because it’s mentioned in conversations about cords, cables and compatible devices, streaming can be seen as complicated or overwhelming. Once families learn how to stream, however, they gain access to an unlimited wealth of entertainment for the whole family. Families looking to start streaming can find simple streaming instructions paired with rows of movie and TV options to enjoy at home or on the go, anytime, anywhere at It also features tips from parents who share when and how they stream. “I was overwhelmed by the idea of streaming and so I never took the time to see what it was all about,” said Melissa Musen Gerstein of parenting expert duo The Moms. “But all this time I could have been watching on our Wii or my iPad. Now, I love watching all the great TV shows I missed while I was giving the kids baths every night. I curl up with my iPad after the kids are in bed and enjoy what I want to watch.” Most American families already have three or more Netflix-ready de-

vices, yet 59 percent of those homes aren’t streaming TV shows and movies. Netflix works on a wide range of devices—from smartphones to tablets, laptops and Smart TVs to popular game consoles like the Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo Wii. Accessible from any computer or tablet, the Families page can help you find the right entertainment when and how you need it, including unlimited viewing of favorites from Disney, Hasbro, and Cartoon Network, “Mad Men,” “Scandal” and “House of Cards.” Learn More: For further facts and tips, visit

Tips On Caring For An Elderly Patient At Home (NAPSI)—There is good news for the estimated 66 million Americans who have become a caregiver for a loved one and the 43.5 million of those who provide care to someone over the age of 50. While the role can be daunting, with access to the right information and resources, it is possible to make the responsibilities, and the stress that can accompany them, more manageable. This is particularly true when it comes to monitoring a medical condition, such as incontinence, that can make providing care for an older person even more complicated. According to Paula Erwin-Toth, director of consumer education and clinical resource specialist for Welmedix’s HomeCare PRO, when dealing with incontinence, it is important that patients and their caregivers consult a doctor to determine the underlying factors causing it. To help, here are five things to consider when caring for an incontinent adult. 1. Be vigilant about keeping the skin intact. A break in the skin can offer a pathway to infection, discomfort and worsening health. 2. Use incontinence and skin care products designed for adults. Remember that baby skin and adult skin are very different, so age-appropriate products are important. According to Ms. Erwin-Toth, nurses use products, such as those offered by Welmedix, to help prevent incontinence-associated dermatitis and related skin problems with adults. 3. Cleanse the skin as soon as you can after an episode of incontinence. The longer urine and/or stool remain on the skin, the higher the risk of skin breakdown. 4. Leave his or her diaper open when your loved one is in bed. This can help reduce the amount of moisture that collects on the skin. Excess moisture combined with urine and/or stool can lead to skin rashes, fungal infection and breakdown. 5. Avoid an indwelling urinary catheter, if possible. The risks of a catheter causing a serious urinary tract infection are very high. A urinary tract infection in a person with other medical issues can become very serious, very fast. It’s also important to remember that the proper interventions can dramatically improve a person’s quality of life. Use of skin cleansing and skin protection products designed for adults can help keep your loved one’s skin intact and healthy.
