Last week we talked a little about Julian Ertz and gave our readers the website address where the entire article could be found. Unfortunately the computer link was ineffective, as many have already discovered. This week we’ll try to do better: To see the article click on:

and, as with all things computer, G-d willing, you’ll get there this time around......... We stopped at the newly established location of Charlie’s Cycle Center, on 66 Minard Run Road during the Grand Opening event held April 24th. The day was pleasant with plenty of sun and lots of people took advantage of the event. Five photos have been included in this issue. We also stopped in at the Bradford Area Christian Academy (BACA) again this week to see what students in the first and second grade class were doing. Three photos in this edition show some of the various activities in which students participate daily in Ms. Brooken’s classroom there. And to polish off the week we gave a little photo coverage to Monte’s Restaurant’s Saturday, Man vs. Food contest, aptly named “Monte’s Monster Burger Challenge” (Details may be found in the photo caption). Our last stop was the Main Street Mercantile where Linda Barrile was kind enough to present her shop there, Linda’s Crafts, Antiques and Collectibles, to us for our readers.........Togi’s Sub Station in East Bradford has recently created a great new website. And what a site it is! Their menu, hours of operation, and even a map displaying their location are all included. Also included is a complete list of all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available at their restaurant. For those who want to take a quick peak, click on: Their website can also be found in their advertisement on our calling card page........May is here and with it, the 9th Annual Stinkfest Leak Cuisine event to be held Saturday, May 1st from 11 AM until 6 PM. in East Bradford along East Main Street as usual.

Out House races will begin at 1:00 PM and a Leek Dip Contest will be held at the East Bradford Fire Station from Noon until 2:30 PM. And best of all, there will be 55 vendors and stations where those in attendance can satiate their every imaginable desire for the American onion, the ramp (known by most as the down and dirty leek).


Mom And Son At Event

Deregulation And Legalized Theft? The SEC ( Security and Exchange Commission) is continuing to investigate the Wall Street and the financial sector collapse that created the biggest downturn of world economy since the Great Depression of the thirties. Regardless of their findings it’s common knowledge that safeguards put into place in the thirties to prevent the repeat of such a great disaster have been stripped away for the past thirty five years starting with the Reagan Administration who set off the movement for deregulation by vilifying a government that was ostensibly overregulating free enterprise. But what will the SEC find? Was it just outright fraud perpetrated by Wall Street and the Insurance Companies, or were these companies just taking advantage of the loopholes in the law? One thing is for sure, the lack of oversight and the laissezfaire attitude by the Bush Administration towards Wall Street allowed the deleterious process to continue. It’s also known that Wall Street started bilking the system for $billions taking advantage of the building boom and the sub prime mortgage rates, bundling high risk mortgages into securities given fraudulent AAA ratings, and selling them to institutions, pension plans, foreign and domestic investors, mutual funds and the like. When the bubble burst, and everything went up in smoke, so did the dreams of the average American who invested in a retirement plan on Wall Street. And the irony is that for their failures in judgment or just plain fraud, this government then rewarded Wall Street with the massive bailout funds known as TARP. Now that the current administration wants to rein in fraud to prevent another collapse from happening, the floodgates of bank money in the form of lobbyist’s cash is once again flowing to members of congress to defeat any regulatory legislation aimed at the financial sector. And it’s no surprise that members of the far right in the party of “no” are the biggest recipients of this financial lubrication. Its time for the clean sweep of the broom in the upcoming elections- Vote the special interest clan out!

AREA & REGIONAL NEWS Anesthesiologist Warns of Fatal Dangers Of Going Under What EVERY Patient Should Know Before Surgery Dr. Barry Friedberg is on a crusade, and it has cost him dearly. “A lot of people wake up from surgery not quite the same person they were before they went under because of the overuse of anesthetic drugs,” said Dr. Friedberg, a board certified anesthesiologist who has been quoted in numerous medical journals and anesthesia textbooks . He has formed a not-for-profit foundation, called the Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation, (www. ) specifically to ask patients to request their anesthesiologists use a brain monitor during surgery. “When we watch a TV show like House or walk through a hospital, we just see a bunch of equipment and monitors, so most people figure that something as logical as a brain monitor would be in use when doctors use general anesthesia. But they aren’t in widespread use at all, and many patients don’t realize they can ask their anesthesiologist to use one. And they should if they want to stay alive and healthy.” According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 53.3 million surgical and nonsurgical procedures are performed during 34.7 million ambulatory surgery visits each year. “That’s a lot of surgery, and a lot of people being put under general anesthesia without knowing all the risks,” Dr. Friedberg said. “Without a brain monitor, anesthesiology is not an exact science. So most doctors figure it is better to give the patient more than they need in order to make sure they don’t wake up during the operation. Of course, no one in the healthcare food chain is opposed to using more drugs, as that is a large part of the revenue stream. With a brain monitor, each patient

becomes an open book test instead of a mystery to be solved. Doctors would be able to use a more exact dosage, use less drugs and be safer. Instead of using too little or too much, they’d use a dosage that is just right, hence my reference to Goldilocks with my foundation.” The risks of being over-anesthetized are many, including long term dementia, memory loss and even death, according to Dr. Friedberg. He added that not enough research has truly been done on anesthesia overdosing, because without widespread use of brain monitors during surgery, there is no way to really pinpoint whether anesthesia is statistically a culprit. That’s why Dr. Friedberg urges all patients to ask if their anesthesiologist uses a brain monitor at the time the surgery is scheduled, and to ask for a different anesthesiologist if the one assigned to them doesn’t use one. Dr. Friedberg‘s message seems simple and prudent enough, but it has not been adopted by his profession, nor by the healthcare industry, because the major players don’t make much money from its use. “Some hospitals don’t even have billing codes for the use of a brain monitor, and the pharmaceutical companies sponsoring all the junkets for doctors aren’t fond of them, because they invariably result in the use of lower dosages of the drugs they sell,” Dr. Friedberg added. “I don’t make

any money from trying to spread this message. I don’t have a secret deal with the monitor manufacturers and I don’t have an axe to grind with the drug companies. In fact, my crusade has cost me professional relationships as well as money out of my own pocket to promote it. I am just tired of the primary task of my profession being not to kill patients. Instead, we should focus on caring for the patients, and understanding the long term risks of overmedicating patients while in surgery. We should be using every tool available to keep them healthy and reduce unnecessary risks through the entire treatment process.” (About Dr. Barry Friedberg: A native of southeastern Pennsylvania, Barry L. Friedberg, MD, came to Palo Alto, California in 1975 to complete his formal education with an anesthesia residency at Stanford University with department chief C. Philip Larson, Jr, MD. Following the successful completion of his residency and the requirements of the American Board of Anesthesiology, Dr. Friedberg became a Board Certified (or Diplomate) Anesthesiologist in April 1980. He has also lectured on safer, simpler, cost-effective and better patient outcomes to anesthesiologists and surgeons in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Israel and Venezuela.)

Lower the Salt and Keep the Taste (Family Features) Lowering your sodium intake is a smart component to any healthful eating plan. With a little salt sense, it’s easy to create foods that taste good without reaching for the salt shaker. The key to reducing the amount of salt in a meal is to use high quality ingredients – from whole foods to simple spices. Products that are lighter in sodium allow the individual character of a food to shine through. Beef tastes like beef. Chicken tastes like chicken. When there’s no time to cook, consider the wide range of lower sodium readyto-eat foods available today. Boar’s Head, makers of quality deli products, offers lower sodium choices including meats, poultry, artisanal cheeses and beef frankfurters that are rich in natural flavors, proteins and essential nutrients. For instance, two ounces of Boar’s Head Lower Sodium Turkey Breast (340 mg per 2 ounces) paired with two ounces of lower sodium cheese (35 mg per 2 ounces), lettuce and tomato on wholegrain bread, provides nutrition and flavor at a fraction of the recommended cap of under 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day. For salads, lower sodium roast beef works well with a yogurt dressing accented with the taste of garlic and poppy seeds.

1 cup fat-free plain yogurt 1 medium clove garlic, minced 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Salad: 6 cups mix of salad greens with radicchio 3 green onions, green tops only trimmed and cut into ½-inch pieces ½ medium cucumber, sliced into thin Roast Beef and Vegetable Salad\ rounds 4 ounces or more cherry tomatoes with Garlic Yogurt Dressing 1 pound (½-inch-thick pieces) Boar’s Servings: 4 Head Deluxe Low Sodium Top Round Roast Beef, cut julienne style Dressing: ½ pound (½-inch thick piece) Boar’s

Head Lower Sodium Provolone Cheese, cut julienne style In a small bowl, mix the yogurt with the garlic and slowly whisk in the oil; set aside. In a salad bowl, mix the lettuce with the green onions, cucumbers, and tomatoes and toss lightly with a little of the dressing to moisten. Add the roast beef and cheese. Toss with more of the dressing. Transfer to serving individual plates; sprinkle with poppy seeds and serve. Add more tomatoes if desired, for color.

The Tastiest Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Ever To Grace Plate Or Palate (NAPSI)-With 2.2 billion grilled cheese sandwiches eaten at home each year, it appears to be one of America’s favorite comfort foods. Just the thought of buttery, toasted bread and satisfying, melted cheese may be enough to make one swoon. While making grilled cheese doesn’t require any formal culinary training, the results of the toasted sandwich can be improved with a few key tips: • For traditional grilled cheese, butter the bread with soft butter. Soft butter spreads easiest and will be more evenly distributed, which helps ensure a properly crisp sandwich. • Apply a little pressure when cooking. Gently press the sandwich with a spatula after it’s been flipped to help create an even spread of cheese. • Be patient. Don’t grill over high heat-the bread will brown (or burn) too fast and the cheese will not be melted. Grill over low heat. • Try grating or shredding the cheese as an alternative to slicing. Some cooks find grated cheese melts faster and more evenly. A great grilled cheese generally starts with a good melting cheese, such as cheddar or fontina, and can be improved with interesting toppings and condiments. For inspiration, you can visit the Wisconsin

1 large red bell pepper, sliced about 1/8” thick 6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature, divided 4 slices King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread, split 8 slices Wisconsin Pepper Jack cheese 8 ounces smoked ham, sliced

Grilled Cheese Academy at The site features 30 new delectable recipes, such as The Lil’ Kahuna, with Wisconsin Pepper Jack, ham, pineapple, sautéed bell peppers and sautéed onions on King’s Hawaiian Bread. The Lil’ Kahuna No. of Servings: 4 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 4 fresh or canned sliced pineapple rings 1 yellow or Spanish onion, sliced about 1/8” thick

Heat a sauté pan over high heat. Add olive oil and pineapple slices; cook each side for about 1 minute to caramelize. Remove pineapple and return pan to heat. Add onions and peppers and sauté 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter and 4 slices of bread. Top each with 1 slice Pepper Jack, 2 ounces ham, 1 pineapple ring, ¼ of the peppers and onions, and another slice of Pepper Jack, in that order. Place tops on sandwiches. Spread tops with about ½ tablespoon butter and grill until sandwiches are golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted, turning once during grilling and adding additional butter to pan, if necessary.

Home-Grown Tomatoes--Straight From Your Patio (NAPSI)-Edible gardening has become a cultural phenomenon. The need to save money at the grocery store and the desire to have better-tasting fruits and vegetables has sparked an increase in home gardening. According to the Garden Writers Association, 41 million U.S. households have a vegetable garden and 37 percent plan to expand the size of their edible garden this year. Do you want to take the first step? Consider growing tomatoes in a container right on your patio or balcony. “Growing tomatoes is one of the most popular forms of edible gardening,” says Bayer Advanced™ Garden Expert Lance Walheim, author of “Vegetable Gardening.” “They can be grown from seeds or plants and they make an excellent addition to a salad.” Tips For Successful Tomato Growing • Choose your tomato: The Patio Hybrid tomato was developed just for containers, but you can also grow varieties such as Celebrity, Early Girl, Sweet Tangerine, or Northern Exposure. • Containers: The bigger the better, but

containers that are at least five gallons are the best size for promoting growth. Make sure the container has a hole in the bottom for drainage. • Soils and fertilization: Use a highquality potting soil and fertilize twice a month. • When to water: The rule of thumb is to water the base of the plant when the top two inches of soil have dried. Containergrown tomatoes can require daily watering as the plant gets bigger.

• Destructive insects and diseases: Whiteflies and tomato hornworms like to eat tomatoes. Diseases such as blight and powdery mildew can harm your plants as well. The brand-new Bayer Advanced Natria™ Insect, Disease and Mite Control RTU contains sulphur and pyrethrins to control insects and diseases that affect tomatoes in one ready-to-spray application. Be sure to read and follow all label directions. Visit for more gardening information and to view how-to videos or call (877) BAYERAG.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Excitement During Charlie’s Grand Opening

Sun-induced Sneezing Question: A friend of mine claims to only sneeze when she’s exposed to bright sunlight. As someone with seasonal allergies, I understand how pollen can cause people to sneeze, but why would bright light make my friend sneeze? Answer: Sneezing is an involuntary reflex caused by many different things. As you noted, during the spring or fall months people with seasonal allergies sneeze in response to pollen or spores. The sneezing is your body’s attempt to clear out the allergens irritating the lining of your nose and throat. Your friend’s claim, that bright sunlight can cause sneezing, is actually a documented medical syndrome. The syndrome is called ACHOO –- and no, I am not making this up. It stands for “Autosomal-dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst,” also called photic sneezing. If you ever start to sneeze and it gets “stuck,” try looking toward a light source to see if it helps you finish the sneeze. Sneezing from bright lights is a genetic condition that affects about 20 percent of the population. The term “autosomaldominant” means that if one parent has the gene, each child has a 50 percent chance of inheriting it. The exact mechanism by which bright light brings on sneezing in certain people is not fully understood. Aside from allergies, illness and bright lights, a number of other things reportedly cause sneezing. Some people say they sneeze when they pluck their eyebrows. Others sneeze when their stomach is full, which is referred to as stomach sneeze reflex. Still others sneeze when their stomach is empty and they feel nauseated. The nausea seems to be somehow relieved by sneezing. Physicians and scientists do not fully understand unusual sneezing triggers, and since the matter seems to be of no medical consequence, we are not likely to bother figuring it out. Interestingly, the practice of saying “God bless you” to someone who has just sneezed began during the 6th Century bubonic plague epidemic. Sneezing took on troubling connotations since it was one of the earliest symptoms of infection with the plague. Sneezing is also an early symptom for many other bacterial infections as well as viral illnesses such as the cold or the flu. If you develop more serious symptoms such as fever or body aches along with your sneezing, you should seek medical attention. Normally, however, a few isolated sneezes are not cause for alarm. Nearly anything can irritate the throat and nose even if you are not allergic to it, including excessive pollen, smoke, pepper and dust.

Q: Is it true that it’s best to avoid all white food? A: No. That common phrase is an unsupported over-simplification of recommendations to limit refined grains (e.g., white bread) and eat lots of colorful vegetables. Deeply colored vegetables, such as deep green broccoli and spinach, orange carrots and red tomatoes, do supply valuable nutrients and protective phytochemicals. However, white vegetables are valuable, too. Onions, cauliflower and white mushrooms all provide compounds that seem to intervene to inhibit several steps in the process of cancer development. White potatoes provide vitamin C and fiber, as well as other nutrients.The problem is the average American relies on them for far too great a proportion of their vegetable choices, ignoring more colorful ones, and sometimes over-doing potato portions so much that they get a lot of carbohydrate that may quickly raise blood sugar levels. White milk, yogurt, soymilk and tofu all provide valuable nutrients. White bread and white rice are not as nutritious as whole-grain bread and brown rice, because they are lower in fiber, several nutrients and natural antioxidant compounds. So general health recommendations advise choosing whole grains for at least half your grain products (or at least three servings daily). Cancer prevention recommendations from the American Institute for Cancer Research emphasize whole grains and advise limiting refined grains, but that doesn’t mean that you need to totally avoid all refined grains in order to eat a healthful diet. Q: Is stretching really that important?

Sneezing, which employs several muscle groups from your abdomen to your throat, is a very powerful “outburst” and a very effective way of spreading germs.

A: Exercise research says yes. It may not be as effective as once thought for decreasing muscle soreness from exercise, but stretching at least two to three times per week has been demonstrated to help maintain the range of motion in joints that we otherwise tend to lose as we get older. Maintaining this flexibility is important for the basic activities of daily living and has also been shown to decrease falls in older adults. And regular stretching done after, not before, strength training or sports seems to enhance athletic performance. The American College of Sports Medicine recommendations for preventive and rehabilitation exercise and for older adults’ general health call for activities to promote flexibility. Stretching should always be done after muscles are warmed up, either by movement for 10 minutes or so, or by heat from a shower, bath or heat treatment when necessary. So do your stretching after your walk or other exercise, not before. The bouncing that some of us learned as part of stretching in high school gym class is not recommended for most people, as experts say it increases the chance of injury. Several different stretching techniques have been developed, but for most of us the simplest and safest is called static stretching: exhale slowly as you relax the muscle and stretch to the limit of movement (not to the point of pain), hold it for 15 to 30 seconds, and repeat one to three more times before you move on to stretch another muscle.

CHILDREN & PARENTING Morning Routines Made Easy (NAPSI)-Morning can be tough, but now you don’t have to struggle with your youngsters to get them ready for the day if you follow a few helpful hints: • Do all your prep work at night: 1. Decide on breakfast foods, such as cold cereal, and have everything set out. Your little one can pop out of bed and head for the kitchen without your help. 2. Set out clothes, shoes and accessories for the next morning. That can save time on last-minute “debates” about what to wear. 3. Use shampoos, conditioners and styling products that nourish and soften your child’s hair to make it more manageable and easier to style during the morning rush. • If your little one fusses over hair combing because it pulls and hurts, try a detangling spray formulated with proteins and vitamins. The added conditioning will make brushing easier. Also make sure to use the right brushes: a plastic, wide-bristled one to detangle and a fine-bristled one for smoothing

hair into a ponytail or taming flyaways along the hairline. Another great way to tame flyaways is Just for Me! Hair Milk Smoothing Edges Crème. It’s gentle and takes the hassle out of taming your little one’s messy tresses. Even if you’re creating braids, twists or ponytails, the morning routine doesn’t have to be stressful. Shampoo and condition at night with Just for Me! Hair Milk Shampoo and Conditioner. With nutrients such as vitamins C and E and calcium, children’s hair is moisturized and softer, making hairstyling in the morning a cinch. All of the products in the Just for Me! Hair Milk line are specially formulated with milk and honey, as well as essential nourishment for stronger-feeling hair that is tangle free and looks silky and shiny. There’s also a straightening mist and styling crème available at food, drug and mass market retailers.

Grandparent Getaways (Family Features) “No parents allowed.” It’s not a sign on a kid-only clubhouse, it’s the first rule of travel for memory-making grandparent/grandchild vacations. Taking a trip with the grandchildren is a great way for the two generations to get to know each other and bond over a common experience. From simple day trips to luxury vacations, there are plenty of ways to whisk the kids away from mom and dad for an awesome adventure. Trip Ideas Local Treasures. You don’t always have to go far to find fun things to do. Zoos, amusement parks, festivals, museums and historical sites are great daytrip or weekend getaway ideas. Keep an eye out for special events at area attractions, such as butterfly exhibits at an arboretum or special festivals at theme parks such as Silver Dollar City or Six Flags. Make it Personal. •Taking them to the same vacation spot you visited with your parents – or their parents – lets you share part of your personal history. •If you’re interested in family history, a trip to the country your ancestors came from joins family history with another culture, bridging cultural and generational

A Cool Way To Aid Learning And Leisure (NAPSI)-Having hobbies, such as building and operating model trains, may help young people become “model” students. That’s one of the key findings of a study conducted by the research group Rockman et al. The study indicates that such hobbies can help children follow directions, acquire skills in geometry and math, and improve attention to detail and perseverance-abilities that can help them do better in school. Such hobbies can also help adults unwind. For example, actor Michael Gross, star of the hit TV series “Family Ties,” worked his way through college as a fireman on the Chicago & North Western Railway line. Today, he finds constructive relaxation by putting his creative energy into model railroading. To help, there’s a Web site where young people and adults can find the hobby that’s right for them-whether it’s model trains, robots, dinosaurs or more. Visitors to the site can even find hobby shops that are likely to carry the materials they need.

Trips to take with your grandchildren

gaps in one remarkable vacation. •Share your passions with them. If you love history, a trip to Washington D.C. is a must. (And with so many things to do for free, it’s a bargain, too.) If you love animals, volunteer at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT. You and your grandchildren can work with the 2000 or so animals in residence there, and be within driving distance of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Whatever you love – music, plants, camping – there’s a family vacation to help you share that love. Go with the Pros. There are a number of travel companies that either specialize in or offer intergenerational travel packages. Grandtravel ( welcomes grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles and family friends to take grandchildren on a special trip. They select destinations all over the world and teach about the area’s history and its people and culture. Visit places like Alaska, London and Paris, Washington, DC and Italy. Grandchildren of any age are welcome, but they recommend ages seven to 17 for most trips. Elderhostel ( offers educational trips all over the US and the

world. Some 2010 trips include: •A Greater Yellowstone Adventure for Grandkids and Grandparents (Montana) •Kayaking with your Grandchild: Exploring the Lewis and Clark Columbia River Water Trail (Washington) •Artists in the Making: Creative Expressions in the Ozarks (Arkansas) •A “Boxcar Children” Adventure (Northern California) •Misty and the Wild Ponies of Chincoteague Island (Virginia) Other great trip ideas and tips can be found at and Do some research, get the grandkids involved in the planning, then head off for a great grandparent getway that no one will ever forget.

Geobash at Allegany State Park (Salamanca, NY)- Final preparations are under way for ASP Geobash V according to the 2010 Geobash committee. ASP Geobash V will be held May 21, 22 and 23 at Camp Allegany in the Red House area of Allegany State Park. The Geobash is a special event devoted to geocaching, a new sport celebrating its tenth anniversary this spring. From the first cache placed May 2, 2000, one day after the global positioning satellites were made available for public use, the sport has grown to an international passion with more than 1,041,900 active geocaches world-wide. A geocache is a box of trinkets, most often an ammo can or a Tupperware container. It is hidden, with permission of the landowner/manager, and gps coordinates are posted on the internet. Geocachers locate the hidden box using a gps receiver, trade a trinket, and post a log of their adventure online. The most popular geocaching website is There are currently 22 geocaches at Allegany State Park. Members of the committee and volunteers plan to place up to 20 additional permanent caches in the park. These will include night caches, caches for kids, and micro caches as well as the regular caches described above. Coordinates for the new caches will go live on the Friday of the event. The Allegheny Geo-Trail in the Allegheny National Forest encompasses ten counties in northwestern Pennsylvania. It was introduced to ASP Geobash III participants in 2008. Representatives of the AGT plan to be at this year’s Geobash with current information and trail materials. Many geocaches are located close to the park, in and around the nearby cities of Salamanca, NY (14779) and Bradford, PA (16701). A search by zip code at www.geocaching.

Here, on April 26th he displays his Monster Challenge T-shirt garnered by attempting to best the giant #5 pound Monster Beast Cheeseburger along with the ½ # of Fries. He has been holding the man vs. food contests in his restaurant on Saturdays over the last couple of months and was inquisitive about how the past contestants felt after such a challenge. So we asked him, “Monte, how did you feel after eating almost 5# of food?” And his answer, “Extremely full. One more bite and everyone would have had a serious problem”. com will bring up a listing of active caches for these areas. Many of these caches will be part of the 100 cache loop, available to early arrivals before the official start of the Geobash on Friday May 21st. While the favorite activity of Geobash participants is looking for the caches, there are many additional activities planned. Friday evening activities will include a family movie, a Native American Storyteller, a bonfire and the posting of coordinates for Friday’s night caches. On Saturday morning there will be a series of educational seminars in the Camp Allegany classroom. Topics will include wilderness first aid, geocaching in scouting, geodog first aid and “whereigo” caches. Games and activities for adults and kids will include the ammo can toss and traditional kids piñata. Afternoon highlights will include the geocoin expo, two movies about geocaching, and the announcement of game and raffle winners.
