COMMENTS AND OPINIONS 5 ¢ENTS WORTH
by Grant Nichols
Our stringer photographer, Mary Joseph submitted a nice photo for this issue showing the entire Pitt Panthers Swim team and its coaches. Another photo in this week’s paper depicts a second donation of $2,500 by the Bradford American Legion and its associated club and auxiliary. This time they donated to the women’s shelter of the YWCA (Their first donation in October was to the Bradford Area Senior Center building fund)…….. However there were two events where the vast majority of this week’s photos were taken. First we found ourselves on Hedgehog Lane at a birthday/Halloween party for Justis Jones. There, lots of children of all ages in costume were having a good time. The second event took place in Sunday along Main Street Bradford where the first annual Pumpkin Fest was taking place. There were many activities for the children, and a good deal of food available in Veterans Square…….Once again we remind our readers that some photos may be seen in the hard copy edition of the Bradford Journal, more can be seen in the expanded online edition of the paper, and all of the photos taken can be found in our photo gallery associated with this week’s issue of the Journal. Enjoy!....... Has anyone besides us used the Block Buster machine outside the convenience store at Foster Brook? Talk about technological developments that keep on giving! The machine is located outside in a low light area so that when the sun goes down, the card reader and DVD ports are nearly impossible to see. This we suggest encourages those who use the machine to eat plenty of carrots and other nutrients to insure the best possible night vision. Another feature of this outdoor machine is that it has no protective overhang. This allows the user to get plenty of fresh cool air, and plenty of water when it rains insuring, no doubt the user’s personal cleanliness. What more could a person want from a machine? This one brings us good entertainment, healthy vision, and personal cleanliness- all for the low price of $1.00........For the last 35 years or so, our representatives in Congress deregulated the banking and finance industries which generally encouraged more financial high risk gambling in the markets by large corporations and by people themselves. The changes in law worked well in that the economy boomed. Unfortunately the same changes led directly to a depression with the party in power getting the boot. Now, only two years later the same people have a plan to make things better. It should be interesting!
Pete The Traffic Guard

Feds Claim No Increase In Cost Of Living Our friends in Congress have decided that there’s not been a significant cost of living over the last couple of years. That’s to say, not enough to give seniors an increase in their social security allotments. Everyone suspects that the criteria for calculating the rate of inflation is flawed. For example, the rate of inflation at its best over the last three years has been 1.14%. Why is it then that I have to pay more than 30% more for my gasoline than when the depression started? And why have the prices for my natural gas and electric increased over 30% for the same period? But that’s not all. My monthly sewer bill on Bolivar drive increased from $20 to $30 for a 50% increase! And of course we should mention that food prices, even at the purportedly low price supermarket outlets have recently been going up on a monthly basis. So here’s how the bean counters in Washington make it appear that people on fixed incomes don’t really need an increase in social security. Here’s how they calculate a low cost of living increase (low inflation) even though increases in cost of living are driving more and more people to food stamps: Every month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) surveys prices from a pre-selected population area from a predetermined list of items (sometimes referred to as the “basket”). From this basket of selected goods and services they measure any upward or downward change and generate the Consumer Price index (CPI). Excluded are goods and services that are highly volatile such as food and energy. So it is no wonder that the cost of living increase they see in their term “inflation” is much lower than we as citizens see as we struggle to make ends meet. By cherry picking the items in their “basket” they can calculate any rate of inflation that serves their political and economic purpose. It would be interesting to see what the true rate of inflation would look like if the Government would include all exclusions in their calculations. It’s these exclusions that explain why our buying power is waning while they are touting low and stable interest rates. In all fairness though, while food and energy costs are taking disproportionately increasingly higher amounts from senior’s budgets, the federal government is making more food stamps and energy supplements available to almost all who ask for them. But this means applying for welfare, something that many seniors are too proud to ask for.

Dexter Service & Collision Halloween Safety Tips: With many communities holding trick-or-treat nights this week, PennDOT Secretary Allen D. Biehler 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,” said PennDOT Secretary Allen D. Biehler, P.E. “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;

In the back (l-r) are Darian Gobin 7, Michaela Terry 8, Isaiah Gobin 8, and Alyah Gobin 9. In the front, (l-r) are Desiree Gobin 14, Julian Gobin 5, and Lisa Delgado 23.

Osteoporosis Requires Combination Treatment Question: In 2003, I was diagnosed
with osteoporosis and began taking medication. One year later, my test results had improved. Now six years later, my results are worse. My doctor has recommended switching to a different medication. Also, my vitamin D levels are quite low. I am thinking of taking vitamin D and trying better nutrition and exercise with no osteoporosis medicine. What do you think? Answer: Prevention of osteoporosis begins early in life with proper diet and exercise. However, osteoporosis does run in families, so it is not 100 percent preventable. Once it has begun, it will continue to progress even with treatment, and especially in post-menopausal women. Whether you have osteoporosis or not, getting your daily requirements of calcium and vitamin D -- either from natural sunshine or vitamin D supplements -- is mandatory. This also goes for patients who are already taking osteoporosis medicines. The treatment of osteoporosis includes more than medications alone. You should take at least 1200 mg of calcium per day and 800 to 1000 IU of vitamin D. You can get calcium from eating dairy products and dark green, leafy vegetables like spinach. Check your food labels to determine how many milligrams of calcium you consume daily. You may need to make up the difference with calcium supplements. Vitamin D can be found in fortified milk (which also contains calcium) and some cereals. One of the best sources of vitamin D is simple sunshine. Just 15 minutes a day of sun exposure will increase your vitamin D levels. Couple your sun time with exercise to double its health benefits: ride your bike, work in the garden or simply park a few blocks away and walk to your destination. vitamin D supplements are also available over the counter, sometimes combined with calcium. You should consult with your physician or pharmacist about supplements, and always follow the recommended dosages. Weight-bearing exercises can help build and maintain bone mass while improving muscle strength and agility. Falls cause fractures in osteoporotic bones, so be aware of the natural limits of your grace and avoid risky activities like carrying boxes down stairs or jogging on uneven surfaces. Excessive alcohol intake and smoking can also weaken bones. If you smoke, talk to your physician about how to quit, and if you drink, do so only in moderation. Your doctor should screen for medications and medical conditions that cause osteoporosis, such as malabsorption syndromes, hyperparathyroidism, hyperthyroidism, chronic liver disease and immobility conditions. As for stopping your medication, that is

Q: Q: I’d like to work with a personal trainer, but am confused by all the different certifications I see. Are they all for real? A: Working with a personal trainer, either in an on-going arrangement or even for a few sessions to learn new exercise techniques correctly and safely, can be a smart investment in your health.You are right, however, in realizing that not everyone who carries the title of personal trainer brings you the same expertise. Choosing a trainer who is certified can help, but only if you know what’s behind the certification. Any organization can create their own certification, and some certifications can be obtained by simply paying a fee to an organization, or perhaps taking an online course and a test. The latter may sound good, but it can mean that someone who has never worked with a client and is not trained in CPR (important in case of an emergency while you exercise) is “certified.” On the other hand, several organizations of fitness professionals grant certification based on a test but also include requirements and/ or testing of practical experience. The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA, www.credentialingexcellence.org) ensures that an organization’s certification is based on valid methods, including some sort of eligibility requirements.This group credentials the organizations’ certifications that are most widely respected in the fitness field, such as ACE, ACSM, NASM and NSCA. Your needs may influence the sort of certification you seek in a trainer: if you are older or have
health problems (such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis or a history of cancer), added expertise may be important to you. For example, ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) has different levels of trainers certified for working with people who face specific degrees of health risks Q: Do special products for washing vegetables make them safer? A: Washing produce is very important for food safety. You can find arguments that do and do not support special wash products, but most food safety experts advise that these products are not needed. Especially for produce that is not waxed, such as broccoli, greens or berries, running water is very effective at removing dirt and germs. Consumer interest in these products is often tied to a belief that these washes reduce pesticide levels, but the government does not require any tests to prove such an effect. The few research studies available show little or no effect beyond that of a thorough water rinse.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recommend washing fruits and vegetables with soap, detergent or commercial produce washes. If you feel more comfortable using a produce wash, as long as you follow label directions, go ahead. But research doesn’t suggest anything more complicated than running water for at least 30 seconds and perhaps a scrub brush for sturdy produce.
a decision you should make only in consultation with your physician. Many people are able to stabilize their osteoporosis with a combination of medication, calcium and vitamin D supplements, weight-bear-
ing exercises and healthy lifestyle choices. The bottom line is that osteoporosis is a progressive problem that worsens with age. Proper treatment is necessary to slow that progression.

In the third row (l-r) are Head Coach Ed Bahan, David Taylor, Drew Shaffer, Matt Patterson, Matt Cox, Ferardo Aquirre-Pettrilli, Ian Stambaugh, Josh Anderson, and Troy Matthews. Head Coach Ed Bahan tells us that three years ago he had only three women and six men on the team. This season he has eleven women and eighteen men. The day following this photo they hosted the Panther Relay with five other university teams. According to team member Roland Cross, the event is a “fun and easy” way to open up the season.

How Women Can Become Golden Girls: Tips To Prepare For Retirement (NAPSI)-Despite deliberations among economists that the recession may be “over,” the past few years of the economic downturn have taken a substantial toll on the retirement confidence of many Americans. For women in particular, the retirement forecast remains gloomy. However, new research from the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (“The Center”) offers opportunities to help brighten it. The Eleventh Annual Transamerica Retirement Survey found that only 6 percent of women workers strongly agree that they are building a large enough nest egg, while 70 percent agree that they could work until age 65 and still not save enough. Although important for everyone, retirement planning is especially important for women, who often face unique financial challenges such as lower wages, time out from the workforce to raise a family and longer life expectancy. According to Catherine Collinson, president of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, “Life sometimes requires difficult decisions and trade-offs, but planning and saving for a financially secure retirement doesn’t have to be overwhelming.” Here are four steps women can take toward a secure retirement: 1. Start Saving Now—You Can’t Afford to Wait The women surveyed said they started saving for retirement at age 30 (median). While that may seem relatively young, there’s a huge benefit to starting early— and a high cost for waiting. For instance, a 24-year-old who starts contributing $3,000 per year to a tax-deferred retirement plan like a 401(k) may save $524,000 by age 65, assuming an appoximate 6 percent annualized rate of return. By comparison, a person who waits until age 30 to start saving the same amount per year may save only $354,000 by age 65. Assuming the same rate of return, that’s a difference of over $100,000. 2. Calculate a Retirement Savings Goal It’s tough to chart a course if you don’t have a destination in mind. The women surveyed estimate needing $500,000 (median) to achieve a secure retirement, but when asked how they reached that number, 59 percent of women stated they guessed. Even more startling, 38 percent of women have only $50,000 or less saved in all of their household retirement accounts combined. There are tools available to help women calculate a more realistic goal, such as The Center’s investment calculator at www.transamericacenter.org. With a specific target amount, women can harness the power of consistently saving and potentially benefiting from the compounding of investments.
3. Learn the Basics of Investing Nearly three-quarters of women surveyed said they don’t know as much about retirement investing as they should. A big step in the right direction is to learn enough about the fundamentals of retirement investing in order to create a strategy that’s right for you, or simply learn enough to ask good questions when seeking the advice of professional experts. For those who don’t have the time or interest to actively manage their retirement accounts, there are other options to investigate, including target maturity funds, strategic allocation funds and managed accounts. 4. Nurture the Nest Egg Given the long-term horizon for retirement planning, people’s life circumstances will inevitably change. By staying aware of and discussing the issues, challenges and available alternatives, you can help ensure that your nest egg will be ready when you need it. Periodically recalculate your savings goal to see whether your current level of savings is adequate to meet your retirement goal. Review your investment results and adjust your investment selections as needed. And don’t forget to consider whether you’ll still retire at the age that you intended. Gaining knowledge and taking control of retirement planning can help women build their confidence in saving for a financially secure retirement—and in becoming a golden girl. In the meantime, retirement
planning also provides greater perspective for making better-informed life decisions related to taking time out of the workforce, pursuing higher-paying jobs and career opportunities, and upholding family commitments. About Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies®: The Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (“The Center”) is a nonprofit corporation and private foundation. The Center is funded by contributions from Transamerica Life Insurance Company and its affiliates and may receive funds from unaffiliated third-parties. For more information about The Center, please refer to www.transamericacenter.org About the 11th Annual Retirement Survey: This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies between December 3, 2009 and January 18, 2010 among 3,598 full-time and part-time workers. Potential respondents were targeted based on job title and full-time and part-time status. Respondents met the following criteria: All U.S. residents, age 18 or older, fulltime workers or part-time workers in forprofit companies, and employer size of 10 or more. Results were weighted as needed for the number of employees at companies in each employee size range. No estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated; a full methodology is available.
Life Insurance And Your Financial Health (NAPSI)-When it comes to protecting your family, a life insurance policy can be one of the most important financial instruments you may ever own. Unfortunately, many people get uncomfortable when it comes to discussing life insurance and calculating how much coverage in enough. As a result, they may leave their family at risk. How Much Is Enough? Many people are underinsured or carry no insurance. In fact, it’s estimated that one-third of Americans have no life insurance at all. While experts usually recommend purchasing a policy that is six to 10 times your gross annual income, the average policy is much less, equal to about 3.5 times a household’s annual income. To help you get a better understanding of just how much coverage your family might need, here are some fast facts about life insurance: • What is it and what are you paying for? —At its core, the purpose of life insurance is to protect a family against the loss of income due to the premature death of the “breadwinner.” Another way to look at it is that you are paying for a substitute income. • Who needs it? —While some turn to different kinds of life insurance policies as a way to build wealth, the basic purpose of life insurance is to serve as a way to replace income in the event of an untimely death.
-by John Addison Anyone who has people who depend on him or her for income support should have life insurance. A wise insurance purchase can mean the difference between maintaining a family’s standard of living and a dramatically different lifestyle for those left behind. • What is term insurance and how does it fit into the scheme of things? —Term insurance is strictly for income substitution and is often favored by younger families that are still building wealth through investment and savings. By design, it lets young families buy more coverage for their premium dollars than other types of insurance. Remember, with term insurance, you are paying for coverage and coverage alone. It does not accumulate a cash value over time in the same way other types of insurance-such as universal life-can. • Is having more than one policy a good idea? —Buy one policy and put the entire coverage amount into that one policy. Multiple policies mean multiple fees and could cost more. Learn More: Financial professionals at Primerica have created a guide that can show you how to take control of your financial life.

Healthful Eating For People Who Love Food
Bradford Journal & Miner Thursday October 28, 2010 Page 19
The Wagon Ride Down Main-Very Popular
by Tom Nikkola (NAPSI)-It is possible to enjoy the holiday season without losing sight of your exercise and nutrition programs. By setting ground rules, you can enjoy holiday parties and celebrations without overdoing the food—or starving yourself. Consider these simple ideas: 1. Don’t succumb to peer pressure. If you’ll be around other people indulging in sweets, treats and other unhealthy delights, be prepared. If you do choose to partake in some less healthful options, do it because you decided to, not because someone else talked you into it. 2. Good prep leads to a well- balanced party. Completing a workout prior to a dinner party or other event can help you better metabolize the food you’re about to eat. While you likely won’t burn more calories than you consume, exercise increases insulin sensitivity and powerfully prepares your body to store more glycogen, meaning more of those carbohydrates will likely be stored in your muscle instead of being converted to fat. 3. Water, water and more water. Constantly sipping on water is a great way to stay “full.” A couple of glasses before a meal can be a great way to keep a lid on food intake. In fact, a recent American Chemical Society presentation said drinking two glasses of water prior to a meal can produce greater weight loss than consuming the meal alone. 4. Go for the veggies first. Besides being loaded with nutrients, the considerable fiber and water found in vegetables can help you avoid overeating. If you’re dining out, start with a salad. If you’re at a party, look for the vegetable tray. 5. Got protein? Keep it lean. Some fat in the diet is important. And the fat found in pasture-raised or grass-fed animal protein even has some health-promoting effects.
Bradford Journal Photo The wagon ride for the benefit of the Bradford Area Public Library (BAPL) was a popular event during the Pumpkin Fest along Main Street, October 24th. From left to are Shane Bentley 10, Aeden Gelder 5, Britany and Sue Bentley, Holly Ambuske 4, and Ann Ambuske. Chances are, however, when you’re at a party or going out for dinner, the meat wasn’t raised that way. Look for a lean source of protein, such as grilled chicken, fish, turkey or lean cuts of beef. 6. Save the sweets and carbs for last. If you stay true to the ideas above, you’ll likely feel pretty satisfied. Sweet potatoes,
regular potatoes and rice are good sources of carbohydrates and they’re gluten-free. If you still crave the occasional highcarbohydrate treat, be sure to consume a balanced meal of vegetables and protein first. • Nikkola is nutrition program manager for Life Time Fitness.
Sharing Family Meals May Lead To Higher-Performing Students (NAPSI)-Want to increase your kids’ chances of getting higher grades in school? Eat dinner with them. According to studies conducted by Columbia University, teens who ate frequent family dinners were 40 percent more likely to get A’s and B’s than those who didn’t. In fact, other research has shown that teens actually prefer sitting down with their families for dinner to eating alone-in part because they thought it was the best time to discuss “something important.” But what to do if your family’s hectic schedule makes it hard not just to get everyone gathered together around the table, but also to find time to do the actual cooking? You can minimize the kitchen duty by serving an easy-to-prepare pierogy entrée. The recipe below, in honor of the nation having just celebrated National Pierogy Day, is an updated version of a classic-and tasty-Eastern European dish that’s also sure to enliven dull menus that provide an excuse for grabbing a bite on the run. And who knows? Maybe even help improve those grades. Unstuffed Cabbage and Pierogies Serves 4
1 (16-ounce box) Mrs. T’s® potato and cheddar pierogies 1 (16-ounce package) kielbasa, cut into ½inch slices 1 tablespoon vegetable oil ½ head green cabbage, cut into 2-by 1inch pieces 1 large onion, chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes 1 large carrot, shredded 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon caraway seed ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper Saute pierogies as box directs. Cook kielbasa slices until lightly browned in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; stir frequently. Remove to bowl. Cook cabbage and onion in same skillet, over medium heat, in hot oil, until tendercrisp, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, tomatoes with their liquid, carrot, salt, caraway seed, pepper and kielbasa. Heat to boiling over high heat; reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

YOU NEED TO KNOW (Be Sure You Stay Eligible For Your Benefits)
(NAPSM)-While young men may think government benefits are just for their elders, in fact, they may be eligible for many federal, state and municipal benefits programs right now. It’s important, however, to make sure you stay eligible by registering with the Selective Service System. Opportunities for Young Men Male students who need help paying for college will find that registering with the Selective Service opens up all doors to federal financial aid. This includes everything from Pell Grants to College Work Study to Guaranteed Student/PLUS Loans. Plus, those who sign up with the Selective Service System are eligible for federal job training via the Workforce Investment Act, as well as numerous federal jobs. Registering is also the only path to citizenship for immigrant men arriving in the U.S. before their 26th birthday. Required by Law According to U.S. law, virtually all male citizens and immigrants need to register with the Selective Service System. Historically, young men have had to do this during the 60-day window that begins 30 days before their 18th birthday and continues for 30 days afterward. This still holds true, but with Early Submission, it is now possible to submit your registration information as long as you are at least 17 years and 3 months of age. Registration applies to all young meneven those living overseas. Those who are immigrants must likewise register, regardless of immigration status. Where and How to Register Online registration: Log on to www.sss. gov and click on the registration icon. It takes only a minute to complete the online form. When you submit your information, you will receive a registration number instantly. The U.S. Postal Service: Visit any U.S. Postal Service branch to obtain a Selective Service “mail-back” registration form. Men living overseas may register at any U.S. embassy or consular office. By mail: Eligible men may also register by filling out a reminder mail-back card. Selective Service will send this card to any young man around the time he turns 18. Mail-back cards are also available at some post offices. The federal student aid form: Another easy way to register for Selective Service is by checking a box on the application form for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA form). Checking “yes” on box 29 of this form will alert the Department of Education to provide Selective Service with the information to register you. School: Most high schools appoint a staff member or teacher to serve as Selective Service Registrar. They help to register young men and answer questions.

Many Still Plan To Have A Helping Holiday (NAPSI)-A new survey finds reassuring news in the midst of the current economic climate. Most respondents still see charitable giving as a holiday priority—and believe the holidays are a good time to encourage children to be charitable. Among more than 3,000 adult respondents in a Build-A-Bear Workshop survey (most of them moms), 63 percent said their charitable giving would remain about the same as last year and more than 24 percent said they would increase donations this holiday. These responses are even more striking when compared to survey results concerning spending in other areas. For instance, more than half of the respondents plan to cut back on eating out at restaurants and 44 percent will forgo redecorating or remodeling their homes. However, moms are still intent on buying for their kids. Just under 60 percent said their spending on children would remain the same this holiday season compared to last and 18 percent said it would increase. More than 60 percent said they prefer products that benefit charities when selecting gifts. Build-A-Bear Workshop offers a variety of options for charitable giving. For instance, when guests purchase the new Turner Owl, 50 cents is donated to First Book to provide new books to children from low-income families and 50 cents is donated to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support other literacy and education programs. Other furry friends benefit domestic pet programs (Jack Russell Terrier is a favorite in the Bearemy’s Kennel Pals series), children’s health and wellness causes (Champ—A Champion Fur Kids), and endangered animals and their habitats (WWF Gray Wolf). Team up with Toys for Tots This year, the company will again partner with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a toy drive the weekend of Dec. 3 to 5. Guests at each store will be encouraged to purchase a furry friend or bring a new toy to donate. During the month of December, guests are also invited to add a $1 donation (or more if they so desire) to support Toys for Tots when they check out either at the store or online at buildabear.com. Last year, through the generosity of its guests, the company raised nearly $400,000 for the Toys for Tots program. Have a “Helping Holiday” Survey results also reveal that 70 percent of moms think there are opportunities for kids to get involved with charitable organizations. Build-A-Bear Workshop encourages young people to make a difference in their communities through its Huggable Heroes program, which recognizes leaders for their outstanding charity efforts. This year’s class of 10 Huggable Heroes, ranging in age from 11 to 18, raised funds and collected items valued at more than $22.5
million, and they volunteer more than 650 hours of their time each month. The company asked these young experts for advice on ways to make the holidays better for others. Here are some of their ideas: • Start a food collection drive for a homeless shelter. • Go to a nursing home and make handmade ornaments with residents. • Gather coats, hats and gloves for children who may not have warm clothing for the winter. • Bake cookies and raise funds for a selected charity through a bake sale. • Make a basket with some essentials and give it to another family; encourage your friends to do the same and host an event to make the baskets. • Foster an animal at a nearby animal shelter. • Use your individual talents to “give back.” For example, if a child plays an instrument or sings, encourage him/her to gather friends with a similar talent and contact local nursing homes, senior centers and hospital pediatric wards to arrange musical holiday performances. The positive impact of music on the recovery and immune systems of children and the elderly is significant. For more information, visit: www.buildabear.com

Nursery Trend Update: Think Outside The Crib (NAPSI)-Blues and pinks are no longer the only choices on the color palette when preparing a new baby’s room. Expectant parents are designing nurseries that create a whimsical, imaginative living space perfect for a newborn, while incorporating elements that are easily changeable and can grow with a child. “Babies grow quickly, so choose colors, decor and furniture that will grow with them,” suggests Christiane Lemieux, founder and creative director of DwellStudio and DwellStudio for Target. “I find it is easiest to start by selecting nursery bedding and then to design the room around that choice.” As a designer and mother of two, Lemieux has had plenty of firsthand experience with planning decor for a baby’s room. She believes the nursery is the perfect room to experiment with a variety of patterns, colors and textures. Make a statement with patterns Nursery bedding has evolved from frilly and formal to cozy and chic; try patterns to help add charm and character to a room. Taking a cue directly from the runways, girls’ nurseries are all about modern florals this season. For boys, setting a scene is a great way to anchor the room. Try something unexpected, such as the DwellStudio for Target traffic crib bedding set, and use accessories to play on that theme. Robust, graphic imagery throughout the room is a wonderful way to tell a story and bring the nursery to life. Add a splash of color
Use colors on walls and with accessories to accent a distinctive design. Pure, clean hues such as rosy pinks and soft yellows are the colors of the moment for girls, accented by great neutrals or bright color pops. For boys, try a soothing mix of blues and grays. Lemieux recommends adding a plush rug to pull in color and to add a cozy soft touch to the nursery. Furniture that lasts When buying furniture, select options that grow as your baby does and provide you with more than one use. Great options include a crib that transforms into a toddler bed and a changing table that easily turns into a dresser. Investing in pieces that serve multiple purposes over the years will save you money in the long run. “I strive to create quality nursery items at prices that are perfect for a new parent’s pocketbook,” says Lemieux. “There are so many great options today when it comes to decorating a functional yet trendy nursery, but it also needs to be affordable.” To check out Lemieux’s collection for Target and more great products for the nursery, visit www.Target.com.

Holiday Entertaining: Tips To Help You Guests Arrive At Party Throw A Successful Holiday Party
(NAPSI)-‘Tis the season for food, friends and family! Entertaining during the holidays can be hectic, but with a little bit of planning, it’s possible to throw a festive, fun party without the worry. Here are some tips to help you host a stylish celebration that will impress your guests: • Trim the Table: Make your holiday table shine using everyday items. Place multicolored ornaments in a large clear vase to create a sparkling centerpiece or dress up a credenza using natural elements like pinecones or evergreen branches. • Mix and Mingle: Serve appetizers in small, stylish serving cups that make it easy to enjoy some snacks while mingling. Put out mini forks as well so that there is no worry about messy finger foods.
• Dazzle with Disposables: Hosting a party with a large guest list but don’t have enough place settings? Look for disposable place settings that look like the real thing and are a fashionable, affordable alternative to paper plates and fine china. • Carefree Cleanup: Enjoy your party stress-free! Using disposable party ware gives you the option to toss the mess so you can spend less time huddled over the sink and more time savoring good food and good company. • Spread the Holiday Cheer: Don’t stress over losing a family heirloom. Pick up a pack of stylish, plastic platters and serving bowls so you can send leftovers home with your guests without having to worry about them returning your dish. Set your holiday table with style using Mozaïk® Party Ware by Sabert. Available in both Classic and Contemporary styles, Mozaïk products include round and rectangular plates, silver-look cutlery serving items and mini appetizer ware, creating a sophisticated impression at every occasion. The collection looks like real permanent ware, but can actually be washed and reused or simply disposed. To learn more, you can visit: www.mozaikbysabert.com

A new generation of movement-based video gaming promises to bring the whole family together in the living room, literally putting you in the game and on the screen. Rather than have you passively sitting on the couch and mashing buttons, the new Move Sports Champions Bundle ($99.99) for Sony PlayStation 3 uses a camera and unique controllers to track movements and put players into the action. For Xbox 360 fans, the newly released Microsoft Kinect ($149.99) also uses a camera system to get your family moving around. Kinect doesn’t require any special controllers.
