LOCAL NEWS It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “The Results” -by Bob Perry The election results are in and there are no changes in the makeup of our federal government. After the most divisive election I have ever witnessed, I, for one, am happy the nasty advertisements and character assassinations have ceased. Since there are no changes in the power structure, President Obama is left holding a bag that holds no solutions and he must lead to get bipartican co-operation. Since there was no landslide preference, any claims as to a mandate are unfounded. Already the president is claiming he has one, but not so. Washington has until January 1st to alter the effective dates of the tax changes and the sequestration and most likely you will see they can get kicked down the road once again in both cases. If the president does not become more moderate and lead us to economic sanity, he will become known for the continuation of record deficits leading to a raising of the debt limit once again and surely result in a second downgrading of our credit rating. Obama called President Bush “unAmerican’ for causing the debt limit to be raised, and is more than hypocritical in his condemnation. By the act of dismissing



the Simpson-Bowles Plan he requested, Obama has not provided the leadership needed to resolve our deficit and debt issues. Leadership please! All commentators I have heard indicate there is nothing that can be done to reduce or eliminate the political lying, out-ofcontext sound bytes, character assassination, and spinning, which results in how people actually vote. Such actions by politicians and their surrogates is fraud in my opinion since there is a theft of votes by deception. As I have indicated before, if it was left to the political parties, there will be no curbing of the divisiveness we have witnessed. We do have freedom of speech but I do declare the Supreme Court would

give serious consideration to curbing the telling of lies, any mention of one’s religious affiliation (a basic right of us all), character assassination and demands for one’s tax returns. As for tax returns, a statement could be given by the IRS if any candidate had legally filed and paid any and all taxes according to the law. The FCC could be the monitor for such regulations and an imposition condemnation by the FCC and imposition of appropriate fiscal penalties. Lets all hope for cooperation in Washington adopting a responsible fiscal solution that returns us to a balanced budget with furute surpluses that result in the reduction of the national debt.

Benefits For Unemployed Veterans

“Cruisin’ Into Christmas” Holiday Parade

President Obama signed into law the bipartisan "Vow to Hire Heroes Act of 2011" on November 4, 2011. Part of that law includes the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) that provides up to 12 months of educational assistance to train unemployed Veterans, ages 35-60 into high demand careers. Congress directed this joint program between DOL and VA to allow unemployed Veterans a chance to jump-start into a new career that can provide meaningful employment. Upon completion of the program, DOL will work with Veterans to place them in these opportunities. Since there is no "central registry of unemployed Veterans," the challenge has been to find the unemployed Veterans between ages 35-60, and let them know about this time limited benefit that ends March 2014. For further information please contact your local VA.

(Badford, PA) – Bradford’s annual “Cruisin’ Into Christmas” Holiday Parade is scheduled to be held on Friday, November 16th, at 5:15pm on Bradford’s historic Main Street. The parade, organized by the Street Dreams Car Club, will be led by Bradford Mayor Tom Riel, the Bradford City Police Department, and Bradford’s Main Street Manager Colette Roessler. Others currently scheduled to participate in the parade include Street Dreams Car Club vehicles, local fire departments, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford cheerleaders and dance team, The Aud, Main Street Broaster, and the ELF Fund. Beacon Light Behavioral Health Systems will present Santa Claus in a 1963 Chevy convertible to conclude the parade.

Students Do Shared Reading Of Short Play

by Grant Nichols

We visited the School Street Elementary School this week for our photos- two fourth grade classrooms to be specific. In both classes, students were circled around in a comfortable manner with their teacher, in front of the classroom. In the one room they were reading a story about Veteran’s Day, in preparation for a Veteran’s Day assembly to be held later in the afternoon. In the other classroom the students were reading a play, each member taking a part. How times have changed! English classes have now evolved to language arts classes that include English grammar, rudiments of writing and communication, along with reading and reading analysis. Interestingly, most of the students are enjoying this much more complicated presentation of the language……..Last week we suggested that now the general election was over, Congress could pass the laws necessary for job creation to get this economy up and running once more. We even suggested that with everyone working together over the next four years, once the economy begins to percolate again, that the other Party could manage to put their candidate into the top office if they desired. Unfortunately, many of the major headlines since last week, deal with such spicy but unimportant items as General Petraeus’s personal infidelity, and petitions being signed within various states to secede from the Union. It’s not that adultery is not important to the families and the individuals involved. And it’s not that secession is unimportant as a concept. Rather, the point of our comment is that media could do better in making a concerted effort to expose those news items that would benefit the general public. For example, how about analyzing and publishing material on the further implementation of the new federal health law. In the absence of information, people are wondering whether the new law is the end of medicine as we know it. And they still want to know what this idea of “Death Panels” is all about…… And while we’re on the subject, we think it would be a good idea if the resources of our FBI could be redirected from investigations of sexual indiscretions of alpha males and their female counterparts, and put properly into serious national threats, for example, investigations of corruption of the voting process by groups who work to restrict equal access to the poles by all our citizens.

From left to right are Mitchell Barker, Hannah Lary, Mia Huber, and Brooke Teeter (all 9-years-old). They tell us they like to read around the classroom in this way.

Bradford TOPS #16 -article submitted The Thursday afternoon, November 8th meeting of Tops Pa #16 was called to order by leader Vickie Johnson at the First Presbyterian Church. The tops pledge was recited and the song “The More We Get Together” was sung. There were 37 weigh-ins with a loss of 20 pounds. Loser of the week was Pat Foote. Loser in waiting is Fran Cecchetti who also chose the forbidden food for the week, cookies. Officers of the week were Carol Van Sickle and Marilyn Gross. Birthdays this week included Norma Cavallero, Judy Eddy, Pat Foote and Carolyn Frantz. Bev Hannon’s inspiration: “My mother’s menu consisted of two choices. Take it or leave it.” Healthy Revelations by Elaine Harris were on life saving CPR, take blood pressure medications in the morning because blood pressure rises during the day, and a drink a day may help dementia but be careful not to over do. Jean Miller shared a joke. Our new team contest starts this week for the holidays and is called: “Get Ready for Christmas”. Our guest speaker was Marty Palambo from the YWCA . Marty spoke on the various programs available at the YWCA and described the different types of exercises in each program including the water exercises and Sliver Sneakers program. The exercises are intended to improve strength, hand/ eye co-ordination, agility, range of motion and over all improvements in daily activities. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all with lots of questions for Marty. Marty is certified in several areas for seniors including CPR. Next week we will be discussing the Christmas Party so come with lots of ideas. The meeting was closed with the friend ship circle and a prayer.

Young Adults: Avoid These Privacy Red Flags -by Jason Alderman Young adults applying for college or preparing to enter the workforce are sometimes shocked to find out that that certain behaviors that were either tolerated or ignored when they were younger now fall under closer scrutiny and could actually hurt their advancement possibilities. Among the biggest culprits are oversharing sensitive personal information in public forums and getting extreme tattoos or body art that may not yet be fully acceptable in certain work environments. Red flags. It should be common knowledge that many employers perform online profile searches of job or internship candidates. They’ll scour public postings on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube looking for inappropriate content like racy photos or videos, racist remarks or evidence of illegal activities that would rule inappropriate candidates. But many people don’t realize that colleges, insurance companies, law enforcement and government agencies sometimes do the same. Thus, an underage student hoping to boost his cool factor by posting photos that show him engaging in drinking games could be disqualified for college admission or even have his scholarship revoked. Privacy settings. According to projections by Consumer Reports, roughly 13 million Facebook users have never set, or didn’t know about, the site’s privacy tools, and 28 percent share all, or almost all, of their wall posts with more than just their friends. It pays to thoroughly read the privacy policies of all sites where you’ve registered, including social networks, your bank, retailers, blogs and news sites where you’ve made comments, etc. Email is forever. Deleting an email from your computer doesn’t mean it no longer exists. Chances are your email pro-

vider – or employer, if sent from work – will retain a record for years to come. Plus, recipients won’t necessarily delete the email and may in fact forward it to others. Haunting photos. Just like emails, photos posted online can live forever. That includes pictures of you that someone else posted and tagged with your name. My rule of thumb: If you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see it, don’t do it, say it or film it. Also, don’t post photos of your kids that might embarrass them or hurt their professional reputation down the road. Resume lies. It can be tempting to embellish the truth on your resume or during a job interview, but as recent headlines about disgraced executives being fired have shown, these lies can come back to haunt you. Employers can easily determine if the degree or past job titles you’re

claiming are legitimate. Another nobrainer: If your resume is posted online on or LinkedIn, make sure there aren’t major inconsistencies with the one you submit to prospective employers. Tattoos. One-fifth of adults have at least one tattoo – the percentages are higher among younger adults. A few years ago, job candidates wouldn’t get past the first interview sporting tattoos; today, depending on the industry and type of customer contact involved, many employers will look the other way. However, some employers do enforce strict no-tattoo policies which, if based on sound business reasons, are legal. Fortunately, my own kids aren’t old enough for body art to be a consideration, but when they are, I’ll give them the same advice I’d give any young adult: Think about the long-term consequences of your actions.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Protect Your Family During Cold And Flu Season

(NAPSI)—According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 22 million school days are lost annually due to the common cold— but a little care can help you protect your family. Most parents have faced this difficult scenario at some point: Your child comes home from school with a cold or, worse, the flu. Soon enough, you have it, too. Flash forward two weeks and some form of a cold or the flu has made it through the ranks of your entire family. While there’s no surefire way to completely prevent these viruses, there are simple solutions to help keep your family healthy during cold and flu season. Here, Kevin Ronneberg, M.D., associate medical director, Target, offers his flu-proof tips: Get vaccinated. Protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated. Prevention is the key to staying healthy during cold and flu season. Disinfect your home. Keep your house clean and germ-free by regularly wiping down surfaces and high hand-traffic areas with a gentle yet effective cleaning solution that’s nontoxic and safe for pets and young children. Clean up after playtime. Avoid spreading the germs your kids may have picked up while sharing toys by washing their hands immediately following playtime. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Stay hydrated. Dehydration doesn’t just occur during hot weather. Cold weather and hot and dry buildings promote dehydration, too. Dehydration can leave your body more susceptible to common colds and the flu, so drink up. Get up and go. During moderate exercise, immune cells circulate more quickly through the body and increase their ability to kill bacteria and viruses. Exercising on a daily basis also builds your immunity over time. Think twice before you share. Avoid sharing food, drinks, utensils or lip gloss. Germs can easily carry from one person to the other. Even if you feel well, flu symptoms can take one to three days to appear following exposure—you may be spreading illness and not even know it. Cover up that cough. Help prevent the spread of viruses by teaching your kids to cough or sneeze into the crook of their arm, sleeve or inside of their jacket or sweater. If you think the flu is something to sneeze at, think again. The flu causes more than 200,000 hospitalizations annually, with more than 20,000 of those being children. Protect your family and get vaccinated this cold and flu season. Flu vaccines are available now at any Target Pharmacy, with no appointment necessary.

Q: I’ve never done ballet but keep seeing ballet exercise classes at my community center. Is this a new form of exercise? A: Ballet exercise classes – also known as Barre classes because of the wall-mounted ballet barres used – are based on training ballet dancers practice, but do not require experience as a ballet dancer.This form of exercise offers a great combination of strengthening your “core” (abdomen and back) along with balance, flexibility and aerobic conditioning. Ballet exercise classes are generally low-impact, but if you have any health issues, talk to the instructor for the particular program you are considering. For example, some classes could include an amount of twisting and turning unsuitable for people with back problems or osteoporosis. One of the key factors in making physical activity a true part of your life is to find options that are fun for you, and many people find that adding a variety of options helps keep it fresh.When you see new options like this listed in your community, don’t hesitate to call or stop by to find out if it’s a good match for you. Starting something new can mean you’ll find it awkward for a while, but don’t let that steer you away. If the instructor indicates it’s a program suitable for beginners, then give it a try. Q: Is it true that breast cancer survivors are at increased risk of heart disease? As a survivor, should I focus my attention on heart healthy eating or a cancer preventive diet? A: It is true that the most common cause of death among survivors of early stage breast cancer is heart disease. In large part that reflects good news about how successfully breast cancer is now diagnosed and treated. In some cases, breast cancer survivors face increased heart disease risk as a side effect of particular types of cancer therapies. However, many women who develop breast cancer are already at increased risk of heart disease before they ever get cancer: both heart disease and post-menopausal breast cancer risk increase with excess body fat, lack of physical activity and type 2 diabetes. Unhealthy eating patterns are clearly linked to heart disease and may increase breast cancer risk even outside of effects on overweight. As a breast cancer survivor, don’t feel that you need to divide your attention between steps to promote heart health and steps to reduce risk of cancer. If you haven’t been physically active on a daily basis before now, start slowly and you may want to talk with your doctor about what types of activities and intensity are right for you. Adjust your eating habits to avoid weight gain.We need further research about how breast cancer survivors’ eating patterns can reduce risk of recurrence and second cancers; for now, cancer survivors are advised to follow the same recommendations linked with lower cancer risk for everyone. Fortunately, this also produces a heart-healthy diet, with plenty of antioxidants and fiber from vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans and healthy sources of dietary fat.

Waiting For Program


ARIES - (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19) Very soon, you will feel closer to you-know-who than you do currently. TAURUS - (Apr. 20 - May 20) If you’re not receiving support in ways you wish you were, then ask for it. It’s possible you’re giving an impression of not needing it. GEMINI - (May 21 - June 20) Obstacles you encounter will be temporary if you’re willing to see them as temporary and you won’t have to look hard to find a swift way around them. CANCER - (June 21 - July 22) You appear now to be up against someone who sees you as inferior and someone who couldn’t possibly be as knowledgeable as they are. LEO - (July 23, - Aug. 22) Something positive and necessary is coming but to receive it, you’re going to have to make space or do some decluttering. VIRGO - (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) If your reasons involve expecting something in return, then perhaps it’s time to revisit your reasons for giving. LIBRA - (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) This week, the sky intends to help ensure this discussion is done fairly and both of you feel you have gained, not lost. SCORPIO - (Oct. 23, - Nov. 21) A decision about ‘where you go from here’ in an area of your world can’t be avoided. SAGITTARIUS - (Nov. 22 - Dec. 2) Taking your time and investing minimum effort won’t bring a desired result. CAPRICORN - (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) You’re being encouraged to face a particular fear now. Through doing so, you’ll come to understand it and why it isn’t as big a fear as you gave it credit for being. AQUARIUS - (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) A sudden change to a situation you thought was sorted and unlikely to ever change can, and will, be both positive and reassuring. PISCES - (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) There is no need to enforce justice. It will come about on its own in its own time.

SENIOR INFORMATION PAGE Staying Safe And Warm In Colder Weather (NAPSI)—There’s good news for older adults concerned about increasing energy costs, particularly during colder months. The Eldercare Locator has produced a free brochure full of tips on preparing a home for winter weather and saving money on energy costs. Energy Tips For those living independently, maintaining their health and safety this winter is imperative. The brochure, “Winter Warmth and Safety: Home Energy Tips for Older Adults,” provides valuable information to older adults, their families or caregivers on how to best deal with cold weather challenges. Some of the tips include: • Seal air leaks and insulate windows around the home. • Install a programmable thermostat to make the home more energy efficient. • Insulate water pipes to avoid freezing and bursting. • Take advantage of local heating assistance funds and utility no-cutoff programs. • Do not use your stove or oven to heat your home. Keep batteries and batterypowered flashlights available and, when needed, use flashlights instead of candles. • Check to make sure that electrical cords on space heaters are not damaged and do not pose a tripping hazard. • Make sure that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are installed and working properly. A Winter Emergency Plan Extreme weather conditions can sometimes require emergency action. Here are some suggestions on how to prepare for winter emergencies: • Identify temporary living arrangements in case you are unable to stay in

Your Family And You (NAPSI)—The importance of caregivers cannot be overstated. With over 65 million Americans providing caregiving, it is clear that caregivers are essential to our nation. Whether during National Family Caregivers Month in November or at any time, it’s a good idea to honor caregivers, providing them with gratitude for their countless efforts in caring for loved ones. Caregivers understand that such care often comes at substantial costs to the caregivers themselves and to their families. Family caregiving can also be a stressful and physically exhausting experience. Caregivers frequently need resources and support to keep their lives running smoothly, and to ensure their own health and the health of their care recipient. Caregivers can have a hard time asking for the help and support they need and many don’t know where to begin. Caring for an elderly or disabled family member can come with a new set of challenges, particularly if the caregiver lives out of state and needs to arrange for inhome help, grocery delivery, safety equipment or alternative housing for his or her parent or loved one. Fortunately, information, strategies and assistance for caregivers are available. Solutions for Caregivers provides care planning and care coordination services designed to support the overall well-being of the person receiving care and help alleviate stress for you and your family. Services are available in all 50 states and can be tailored to your needs. You can get the support you need today. You can learn more at: or by calling (877) 765-4473.

A Trip To The Doctor Can Be Child’s Play (NAPSI)—While taking your toddlers to the doctor probably isn’t a walk in the park, it’s natural for them to be scared by the bright lights, white coats and cold instruments that poke and prod them. With a little preparation that involves some playtime, though, you can alleviate some of their reservations and maybe even make the experience a little bit fun. “Confronting their real and imagined fears takes a combination of patience and creative role- playing,” said pediatrician Dr. Macelle Neuwirth. “It’s important to diminish unnecessary stress before and during the doctor visit so that we can make the children more comfortable and trusting and ultimately create a more ideal atmosphere for medical attention.” Parenting expert Rosie Pope agrees. “Empowering your children with the truth means their fear and imagination won’t run wild when it comes to the doctors,” she said. “Always stay upbeat about a doctor visit and explain what is going to happen before they arrive.” Start With a Conversation It’s important that you start by explaining to your toddlers both why they are going and that the doctor is there to make them feel better—or keep them from getting sick. This is not the time to “surprise” them upon arrival at the doctor as that can only lead to “tears from fears.” Maybe the family’s pet has been to the “pet doctor” and your toddler can see that it’s feeling better—and was brave, too. Turn Playtime Into Prep Time Playtime is an excellent time to talk about the upcoming visit and act out what they will most likely find when they get to the doctor. That way, you can address anything that may be scaring them and “role-play” different parts of the exam.

The new Little Mommy Doctor Mommy doll from Mattel is not only a fun toy but a great tool for this role-play. Because she comes complete with her own medical kit, you can play out taking your toddler’s temperature, checking reflexes and even getting a shot. The interactive “prompts” from the doll can lead the playtime activity and then turn the tables with your toddler acting as “doctor.” Take a Familiar Toy With you to the Doctor Children find comfort in the familiar—especially in an unfamiliar setting. If you’ve role-played the visit with Little Mommy, take the doll with you as a source

of comfort. When toddlers are sick, they can tell the doctor “where it hurts” on the doll to take the emphasis off of them. Parts of the exam can be done together with the doll to mirror the playtime performed at home. “When children can give a doll or her parent or sibling a pretend exam, it helps them feel more in control of a sometimes uncertain situation,” added Dr. Neuwirth. End your visit with a treat to reward brave behavior, and if there were still some tears, that’s OK. A little post-exam role-play offers another chance to share feelings. The more your toddlers know, the more prepared they will be the next time.

middle of the paper. Bring the paper from the long side of the box, up to the middle of the package. Pull both sides tightly so the paper hugs the package smoothly. Tape it closed. 3. Turn the package so the open end is facing you. Fold the right and left edges, pushing the sides in next to the box, to form flaps. 4. Fold the top flap down to the box, pull tightly and tape. Fold the bottom flap up tightly and tape. Repeat on the other side. 5. Now, decorate the package. You can paste on silk flowers, tinsel, candy canes, old greeting cards, pictures cut from magazines, pinecones, jingle bells or tiny toys to make the box even more intriguing. You give a gift to the environment as well as the recipient when you use paperbased packaging for your presents. Paper

and paperboard can be reused and recycled and are made from a sustainable, renewable and recyclable resource. Consider this: Last year alone, 52.7 million tons, or 66.8 percent of the paper consumed in the U.S., were recovered for recycling—a record! Every ton of paper recovered saves 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. In addition, paper is made from a renewable resource—trees that are sustainably grown, managed and harvested. U.S. forests and forest products offset 10 percent of annual U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. That’s like removing 108 million cars from the roads each year. Paper-based packaging is also easy to ship. Learn more about the benefits of paper-based packaging by visiting: and

Wrapping It Right (NAPSI)—Once you’ve found the perfect presents for everyone on your list, you can have fun wrapping and decorating the packages. Here are hints on how: 1. Gather your materials and lay them out on a clean, flat work surface. Make sure you have enough space, then roll out enough wrapping paper to fit around the entire gift with a few extra inches left over. Remember to remove the price tag from the gift before wrapping it. 2. Measure the package and cut the paper to size. Put the gift face down in the

Tips From The Pros On Designing Your Dream Home (NAPSI)—When picturing your dream house, you may envision a professional kitchen, a grand master bedroom and a sweeping staircase, while someone else is envisioning an indoor swimming pool and wine cellar. And as different as tastes may be, something just about everyone can agree on is that there are few things more personal than designing your home. Before you get wrapped up in the details, however, architects will tell you to focus your attention. By following these tips from the pros, you can help ensure your dream home becomes reality: Choose a good architect Designing a home is often a collaborative process between the homeowner and the architect, so it’s important to find someone you’re compatible with. One of your first conversations when interviewing architects should be to ask them about their working style as it should be similar to your own. You should also feel like you can communicate freely with your architect. “Many people find it’s hard to articulate their style and tastes,” says Helen Hald, owner of Helen Hald Architecture in the Seattle area. “One way to make communication easier is to collect images from magazines that speak to you. This is a great way to translate your vision and it also opens up a dialogue.” Find a location you love and take advantage of it Homeowners often start their dream home process by finding the right location and for good reason. Where you build will often dictate your home’s style, construction materials and much more. For example, whether it’s majestic mountains or sunny surf, one of the main reasons to choose a location is because of the view. If you find a view you love, enjoy it. This tends to start with the windows, and one way to maximize the view is to go big. Newer custom windows, such as Majesta double hung windows from Kolbe, are available in sizes as large as 12 feet tall. “Most people want to feel connected to the outdoors, especially if their home is sitting on a location they love,” explains Hald. “From natural light to seeing nature, this just makes people feel better.” She went on to explain that another way to enjoy your surroundings is to create easy access to outdoor living spaces. To accommodate, she recommends using products such as Kolbe’s TerraSpan lift and slide door. The door can pocket away into the wall, creating an expansive opening of up to 60 feet, excellent for flowing seamlessly from inside to outside. Design for your lifestyle When planning your home, you may have a wish list a mile long that includes granite countertops and a four-car garage,

but architects will tell you to go deeper. They’ll tell you to start by envisioning your dream life—not your dream house. “How you plan to live in your home should be the basis of creating your dream home,” says Hald. “A home shouldn’t be a container that’s just filled with stuff; it should be a space that’s designed for how you live today and how you will live in the future.” Think about your daily life in your current house, suggests Hald, and figure out what you like and don’t like. If there’s a challenge you face every day, like carrying laundry up and down from the basement, this is an opportunity for improvement in the new house. Discuss these problems with your architects; they are there to help with a solution. Furthermore, if you have specific requirements, let them know. For example, if you see mobility being an issue in your future, consider universal design. Many window and door designs can enhance ease of operation, making living in your home more comfortable for years to come. Splurge wisely According to Hald, whatever’s put in a house should be added because it has a purpose that’s in line with the overall design concept or philosophy. “For example, don’t just add an expensive chandelier because you saw it somewhere and liked it,” she says. “Ask yourself if it supports the concept and will enhance your daily life.” Making a decision for the greater design concept should also include spending more on elements that are the backbone of

your house. You’ll want to choose materials and products that are made to last and have good warranties. “Investing in highquality, durable products offers peace of mind throughout the lifetime of the house and will pay off in the long run,” adds Hald. “Windows and doors are elements you should consider when investing in quality. Not only do they add aesthetic value, but they are a practical need that should be a priority when establishing the overall construction budget,” urges Hald. “If you have to, borrow from another budget before you downgrade your windows and doors, as you don’t want to have to replace them down the road.” For more information about beautiful and customizable windows and doors, visit

Getting Your Home Ready For Cooler Weather (NAPSI)—When it comes to keeping your home safe and comfortable, every season makes its own demands. To help, here are a few tips on how to prepare your home for cooler weather and holiday fun from the home experts at ServiceMaster. • Prevent Rodents. Ensure attic and foundation vents are equipped with a tightfitting ¼-inch hardware cloth. Rodents are great climbers and acrobats, so make sure to trim tree branches away from the home to limit access to the home’s roof and exterior vents. • Proof Your Roof. Check flashings around vents, skylights and other openings. Trim back tree limbs and vegetation away from the home. If you have a flat roof, blow off all leaves and pine needles so they do not hold moisture on the roof. Check loose or damaged shingles to prevent leaks during winter storms. • Fine-tune Your Heating System. About a month before you expect colder weather, have your heating system professionally inspected to ensure it runs properly. Check your system’s air filters and clean or change them regularly to maintain efficiency and reduce energy costs. • Combat Allergens. Move heavy furniture and clean underneath. Invest in a high-quality vacuum with a HEPA filter, as it will trap dust and particles rather than redistribute them into the air. At least once a week, wipe down bed frames and headboards as well as any other furniture or knickknacks in the room with a microfiber cloth. • Feed Your Lawn. Lawns that recently experienced drought will require proper nutrition to encourage healthy growth and

to recover from drought damage. Having enough residual nutrients in the soil will help jump-start plant growth. Use a professional company with a tree and shrub plan that offers customized solutions to lawn and landscape problems based on the specific needs of the region. • Check the Chimney. An obstructed chimney or flue causes smoke to build up in the house. Have your chimney inspected and/or cleaned by a professional before

you heat it up. • Protect The Surface. If you are hosting a holiday party or family gathering, always make coasters available to prevent water rings on your furniture. Choose one made of wood with felt or cork on the bottom.

The Holiday Gift You Don’t Want: Counterfeit Currency (NAPSI)—There are more small and medium-sized cash transactions during the holidays than at any other time of the year, making November to December “prime time” for counterfeiters. “By taking a few precautions, smallbusiness owners can help protect themselves against currency fraud and increase their odds of having a happy holiday,” says Stacey Scudder, assistant vice president at Bank of the West. The San Francisco−based bank partnered with the U.S. Secret Service to educate merchants on counterfeiting. “The best insurance against potential losses from counterfeit currency is to learn how to quickly and easily identify authentic currency,” Scudder says. Here are six quick tips that Bank of the West and the Secret Service offer to merchants: • Hold a $20 bill up to a light source. Each $20 note contains a clear strip inscribed with “USA Twenty.” The $20 bill is today’s most counterfeited denomination in the U.S. The other notes—$5, $10,

$50 and $100—should also show a strip with their denomination printed. • While holding the bill to the light, check for a watermark on the right side of the note. On the $5 note, you’ll see the number “5”; on the $10, $20, $50 and $100, the watermark and the portrait should match. • The $10, $20, $50 and $100 have their numbers printed in color-shifting ink in the lower right corner. This technology is very hard to replicate, and in genuine U.S. currency, you’ll see the color shift

from copper to green. • Counterfeit detection pens are not always accurate and may give false results. The surer way to detect counterfeits is to be familiar with the security features. • Think you’ve been passed a fake bill? Immediately notify the police. Try to remember the physical characteristics of the person who passed it and, if possible, write down the license plate number and vehicle description. • Whatever you do, don’t pass a counterfeit bill along. Counterfeiting currency or possessing it with fraudulent intent is punishable by a fine or imprisonment for up to 15 years or both. “We’re encouraging all merchants to be aware, stay informed and know what steps to take if you receive a fraudulent bill,” Scudder says. “Educate your employees, especially going into the holidays when there are so many temporary and seasonal cashiers who may not be familiar with the tricks of the trade for thwarting counterfeiters.”

Deck Your Halls With Wonderful Walls (NAPSI)—When it’s time to spruce up your home for the holidays, or any sort of party, few things can brighten and revive a room like a fresh coat of paint. To help you save time, recent advancements mean modern paints include primer, dry quickly and feature a stain-blocking formula. Here are some tips from Aimee Desrosiers, director of marketing at Behr Paints, on how to give your home a new look just in time for the festivities. 1. Plan your project. Leave yourself enough time to complete your project, including preparation, painting, dry time and cleanup. Certain colors require multiple coats, so be certain to add this into your equation. You don’t want to be rushed to finish before guests arrive. 2. Preparation is key. Remove furniture, rugs, wall art and other items that need to be protected or move items to the center of the room and cover with a drop cloth. Remove and store light switch plates, nails, outlet covers and other items so you don’t have to paint around them. 3. Spend a little extra time on preparation. Repair cracks, holes and minor imperfections and sand smooth any patching materials. Surfaces should be cleaned of dust, grime and dirt and allowed to dry, and shiny surfaces should be deglossed. Use the proper type of painters tape for your surface. 4. Use high quality painting tools. Economy rollers will leave bits of fuzz in your paint finish and poor quality brushes will result in brush marks and drips. According to Desrosiers, BEHR Premium Plus Ultra Interior, the original highperformance Paint & Primer in One, now allows you to paint, prime and protect all in one to help projects get done quickly and easily with long-lasting results. The extra-durable paint film resists stains and scuffs, which are pretty likely when lots of guests come to call. The paint is targeted for high-traffic spaces such as family rooms, kids’ rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and hallways. Other added benefits include a shorter dry time and a low VOC, 100 percent Acrylic formula with a mildew resistant finish for increased ease-of-mind when painting. You can browse a hand-selected, designer-inspired palette as well as over 2,000 colors to find the perfect one for you. Can’t decide between two hues? Go two-toned. Here’s how: • Divide walls equally into two parts. To inspire your color choice, look at current furnishings, fabric patterns and accent décor. For a harmonious combination, coordinate shades of the same color. • To help the room feel more formal, choose rich deep colors and dark neutrals and incorporate moldings into your design. A chair rail over the color dividing

line is an easy way to add polish, while crown molding visually repeats the space and color division between the wall and ceiling for a complete look. • For comforting appeal, select a shade with a warm undertone. A minimum of three colors is necessary to complete this look. Choose two colors for your walls and one for your molding. The two-toned wall technique can also make rooms with high ceilings seem shorter or more proportional by bringing the ceiling color down on to the wall. When you’re ready to get going on your next project, get organized, make a list and look for quality products such as Behr’s advanced stain-blocking formula,

available exclusively at The Home Depot stores nationwide and For More Information: Do-it-yourselfers can visit to explore design inspiration and order eight-ounce paint samples. Fans can also “like” Behr on Facebook and follow Behr on Twitter. The ColorSmart by BEHR Mobile application is available as a free download for iPhone-, iPad- and Androidcompatible devices to help users find the perfect paint color at the touch of a finger.

Retro Recipe With A Healthful Touch (NAPSI)—Here’s news you can take comfort in: Not only are comfort foods gaining in popularity, many are also losing some of the fat and calories they once had while retaining their flavor. For example, a new version of an old favorite, Chili Corn Chowder, adds a healthful touch when you make it with canola oil instead of solid, saturated fats. Plus, you can still enjoy its wonderful creamy texture—without using heavy cream. With the added veggies—red pepper, green chilies and jalapeno—you have everything in one bowl. Serve it with corn bread or muffins for a healthy, hearty and comforting meal. Canola oil is a healthful alternative to solid fats such as butter and shortening. It’s cholesterol free, trans fat free, low in saturated fat and high in unsaturated fat and omega-3. It’s very versatile, so you can use it in recipes calling for olive or other cooking oil and for sauteing, salad dressings and baking. The light, neutral taste can be a perfect complement to other foods. Chili Corn Chowder Yield: 6 to 8 servings ¼ cup canola oil 1 large onion, peeled and sliced 3 garlic cloves, sliced 1 large red pepper, seeded and sliced 3 potatoes, sliced 4 cups chicken or very light vegetable broth (Swanson’s) plus more as needed ½ teaspoon cumin 3 cups frozen yellow corn 1 (8-ounce) can mild green chilies, drained

1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced, optional ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, plus additional for garnish Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Pour the canola oil in a large soup pot over medium heat and saute the onions, garlic, red pepper and potatoes until the onion is wilted (5 to 7 minutes), stirring so all the vegetables saute evenly. Add the broth and cumin. Continue to cook 10 minutes and then add the corn, chilies and jalapeno. Continue cooking and stir-

ring until the potatoes are soft and can be pierced easily with a fork. Add the cilantro, salt and pepper and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. In batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor so that it is still a little chunky, not smooth. If the soup is too thick, add additional broth as necessary. Serve topped with chopped cilantro. This soup can be made a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator so flavors can blend. Reheat it on the stove.

Each fall and spring, the hotline ramps up to field questions that range from the practical to the unusual, including: • How much ham should I buy to feed 10 people? Answer: If the ham is boneless, estimate one-quarter to one-third pound per person; for a bone-in ham, one-third to one-half pound per person. • How can I be sure my ham will turn out moist? Answer: Most hams are pre-cooked

(read the label) and require only gentle reheating at 325° F to an internal temperature of 140° F. Place a pan of water on an oven rack to increase humidity. • Can I make ham ice cubes to use in drinks? Answer: Sounds interesting, but it is not recommended. You can find great ways to use the left-overs quickly and deliciously at One good way to use leftover ham is in Bourbon Ham Balls with Holiday Sauces.
