It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “Losing of Freedom ” -by Bob Perry

Photo Submitted On May 6 the McKean County Livestock Club met at the Lamphier Cemetery in Eldred, PA. There was three members present: Stephanie McFall, Ryan Davis, and John Post. There were two guests: Pam McFall and Marcia Lamar. The club had a guest speaker, Don Tanner. Don talked to the members about the endowment fund was and how it worked for 4-H. Club members cleaned debris from the cemetery. In addition, the members received their forms for their pepperoni fundraiser. Members are raising funds so they can raise a swine and sell it at the livestock auction in August. The money they will receive from the swine will go toward the endowment fund. The next meeting is May 20h at the cemetery in Farmers Valley at 2pm. McKean County Livestock Club members shown in the photo above are from left to right, Front Row: John Post and Ryan Davis, and in the back row, Stephanie McFall.

Lewis Run Bridge Job Underway (Bradford) – Work to replace a structurally deficient bridge in Lewis Run is now underway. The bridge spans Lewis Run on Route 4001 (Lafayette Avenue/Big Shanty Road) in the borough of Lewis Run. Replacing the bridge with a new concrete arch structure will shorten the list of structurally deficient bridges in McKean County by one. Work that was scheduled to start Monday, May 14 and includes waterline relocation, storm sewer and inlet placements, and roadwork and drainage improvements on Big Shanty Road. This work will be done with little or no traffic impacts. Once initial work is complete, a detour will be in effect so that the current bridge can be removed and the new one built. The detour is expected to begin on June 11 and last through late August. The detour route will use Route 4001, Route 59, and Route 219. PennDOT will issue an updated release before the detour goes into effect. All work is weather and schedule dependent. L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York is the contractor on this $1.3 million project. Work is scheduled to be finished in late September.

Having freedom is something we take for granted and the reversal of how we got the freedom we enjoy will find we will be losing freedom(s). In truth, it is the system of ownership upon which this great country was created that is the backbone of our freedom. The protection of our freedoms begins with voting for representatives that create our laws. In fact, the Constitution originally permitted voting rights to only white male property owners to protect the established freedoms. This was around 10 to 16% of the population and a vested interest was seen as essential to have a voice. While I disagreed with the restriction of being white and male, I feel the requirement of being a property owner has some relevant credence. Today the percentage of people who have no vested interest are having a voice in electing representatives. This system of private ownership of the production, manufacturing and distribution of economic goods and services is essential for economic growth and security. The will that is inherent in ownership gives a need and voice in our government and other affairs of society. There has been an unprecedented shift of production and manufacturing to other countries and in time the effect on our freedoms will continually become evident. Added to all this is the influx of illegal immigrants who are being given a path to unearned citizenship via amnesty previously, and it will happen once again soon. Added voices to governmental actions that are eroding freedoms that we (Continued on page 5)

Showing O’Keefe Prints During Discussion

by Grant Nichols

While the last couple of issues of our paper have included photos from many different locations, this week, most of the photos in the Bradford Journal were taken at School Street Elementary School (we are in a hurry to include as many fifth grade students as possible before the year ends). Students included are at “specials” and are from Mrs. McGinnis’s class, Mrs. Downey’s class, Mrs. Arrowsmith’s class, and Mr. Swanson’s class. The first “special” we visited was Mrs. Bennett’s art class. There, students were working on form and structure as well as being introduced to one of our country’s famous artists, Georgia O’Keeffe. Mrs. Bennett, the art teacher pointed out O’Keeffe’s style in preparation to having the students draw in class using the same techniques to create their own work. Next we moved downstairs to the Spanish room where the Spanish teacher, Señora Emborsky was drilling the students on conjugating verbs. Finally we stopped into the music room where Mrs. Shultz stood with the students playing the bells. Just as with other educational endeavors properly presented, first comes the theory and then comes the practical application. While theory may be interesting to some, it seems that all students enjoy the practical aspects……...Tim Slaven of Slaven’s Country Cupboard, 3461 W. Washington St., Bradford tells us that this weekend, on May 19th and May 20th they will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their store and subsidiary operations. A firework demonstration is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th from 3pm-5pm, and an introduction to the “Shared Leasing Program (making fun affordable) will be given Sunday, May 20th at 2:00 pm. Tim explained that anyone can save up to 75% on the cost of their boats, jetskis, campers, and snowmobiles using this method……. Free enterprise is a wonderful right. And it’s something worth fighting for. Create, acquire and/or produce, and sell for a profit is the name of this game. We all like the idea, when we think about it, whether we’re entrepreneurs or just garage sales kings. That’s part of what we love about this country. Rich or poor, we’re all able to take part in the system, and we’re all allowed to work at such enterprise without interference from the government. Ahhh! Freedom is certainly a wonderful thingif we could just get rid of those nasty restrictions.

“Gulf Oil Spill Revisited ” -by Bob Perry (Continued from page 2)


have enjoyed but are being changed to be politically correct and not be discriminatory. There are those that state the Constitution of the United States is flawed but in the history of man there has been no other proven to be better - not even close. If we continually fail to follow the constitution more freedoms will be lost. In the case of the current administration’s act of taking over General Motors and Chrysler and awarding a major portion of the companies to the unions and bond holders with worthless paper, the Constitution was violated; and if it goes unchallenged the private ownership principle is being eroded. The economic mess we wound up with in the US is no accident. It was the result of the environment created by laws changed and created to promote redistribution of wealth which reduces private equity, thus reducing the voices of freedom. Whenever the personal wealth of citizens is drained, owned assets become targets of fewer of wealth and their voices with agendas who start to influence government in a direction to centralize government, which in turn, reduces freedom of the states and individuals. It is possible that the change from those who could vote had to be property owners in the past, should never have been changed?

There was no loser of the week. Loser in waiting is Dorothy Young. Officer of the week is Anna Wells. The Helpful Hinit was given by Gail Kio; “If you like berries but hate the way they turn bad so quickly, try dunking them in mixture of 3 parts water, 1 part white vinigar. Rinse and dry. It will destroy mold that builds on berries.” Bev. Hannon gave the thought for the day: “If you want a happy ending, that depends on where you stop your story.” Dorothy Young gave two health tips: “Try eating bllueberries, they are very good in vitamin K and help prevent ostreporsis and harding of the arteries. Also, “try Bran Flakes for breakfast. It is a very good source of Fiber and Magnesium.” The Quilt that Elaine Harris made and donated to the club was won by Bev Hannon.

(NAPSI)—According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where air pollution levels can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. Common indoor pollutants, including molds and allergens, volatile organic chemicals, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide, can cause headaches, asthma, allergies and irritation. In order to create a safe, healthy home, consider the following tips: Install carbon monoxide detectors. Homeowners should install a carbon monoxide detector in or near each bedroom and on every level of the house. Rest easy knowing that you and your family will be better protected with these cost-effective alarms. Control moisture to prevent mold. Maintain low humidity levels throughout the home and fix any leaks. Clean damp areas often, use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove moisture, and install a dehumidifier to help prevent mold growth.

Take it outside. Creating a healthy home can be as simple as taking it outside. Spending time outdoors gives you a boost of vitamin D and can reduce stress and enhance your overall mood. Test for radon. Many homeowners are not aware that they have a radon problem until they sell their house. Testing your home for radon is easy and radon detectors are available at most hardware stores. When planning for a healthy home from the construction stage, install a product such as Form-A-Drain that not only helps vent radon gas but helps keep basements dry. Focus on indoor air quality. Ensure proper ventilation to reduce indoor pollution, leave doors open between rooms and open windows whenever possible. In addition, AirRenew gypsum wallboard, used in interior walls and ceilings, actively helps clean the air by capturing formaldehyde and other aldehydes and converting them into safe, inert compounds. Select Greenguard-certified products. This certification provides assurance that products meet strict chemical emissions limits. Products such as Sustainable Insulation boost the energy efficiency, help reduce unwanted noise and therefore improve the overall comfort of a home while helping to ensure healthier indoor air.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Tips On Gaining Control Of Your Allergies

(NAPSI)—If you find yourself sneezing and wheezing from allergies or asthma, you have lots of company. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), allergies and asthma afflict 60 million Americansmore people than are affected by diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke combined. And the most common allergy, allergic rhinitis, affects people outdoors and indoors. The good news is that many allergy sufferers can improve their symptoms significantly by reducing household dust, dust mites, pollen, pet hair and dander, and other substances in the home that trigger allergic reactions. Reducing the Triggers There are three approaches that have proven to be effective: • Keep the home clean. Using a built-in central vacuum system has been clinically proven to reduce allergy symptoms by up to 61 percent. Brian Campbell, spokesman for BEAM Central Vacuums, says having the system’s power unit outside the living area ensures that no air is blown into the living area to stir up dust from upholstery and other surfaces. • Filter the air. A whole-house HEPA air filtration system is designed to remove airborne dust and allergens that surface cleaning can’t capture. For instance, a BEAM HEPA Air Filtration System is said to remove 99.98 percent of particulates from the air. • Keep the humidity low. Areas of the country with the highest relative humidity are also the areas with the worst allergy problems. Dust mites thrive in humid conditions. The AAFA recommends homeowners consider using a dehumidifier to keep the relative humidity in the home at 50 percent or lower-a level that will limit dust

Q: Are other berries as rich in antioxidants as blueberries, or should I just stick to blueberries every day? A: Go for variety! All berries are high in antioxidant compounds and vitamin C. Studies suggest that blueberries have good potential as a cancer-fighting, health-promoting food. But since strawberries come into season a little sooner, start there. One cup of strawberries provides enough vitamin C to meet current recommendations for a whole day, and eating strawberries has been shown to increase blood levels of vitamin C and total antioxidant capacity. Strawberries provide compounds called ellagitannins and ellagic acid, which bacteria in our digestive tract convert to other compounds. In laboratory studies those compounds show antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and direct anti-cancer effects. We don’t currently have, and may never have, large human studies that isolate effects of berries, especially particular types of berries, on cancer risk. Research does suggest, though, that compounds in a variety of berries could play many roles in cancer prevention. Antioxidant protection from vitamin C and phytochemicals appears to protect DNA from damage and enhance its repair. Beyond that, berry phytochemicals seem able to inhibit carcinogens and stimulate self-destruction of abnormal cells. Enjoy your favorite berries in season when costs are lowest and you’ll be rewarded with nutritional variety and fresh flavor. Q: Is yoga enough exercise to help me lose weight? A: Some studies do suggest that yoga could play a role, although results vary depending on the type of yoga. A study of six healthy young adults who did the Sun Salutation (a series of 12 poses repeatedly going from standing to floor) estimated that they burned about 230 calories in a half-hour session. That’s comparable to what the average person burns in the same period on a brisk walk. Since these people weighed less than 135 pounds on average, a person who weighs more would likely burn somewhat more calories. In addition, researchers found that as these subjects were doing this more actively moving form of yoga, they were working out at a heart rate that could improve cardiovascular fitness if done regularly. Yoga that involves more sitting and less movement would burn fewer calories and have less effect on cardiovascular fitness. Aside from any weight impact, yoga increases flexibility, improves balance and relieves stress. Depending on the type of yoga and your health goals, it may or may not offer all the strength-building exercise you need to maintain body muscle.Yoga can be an excellent choice of exercise. We tend to get the most benefit from a mixture of different types of activity, each providing different benefits, so it would be ideal to also add in some regular walking, swimming, biking or other type of aerobic activities. Note that research clearly shows that physical activity plays a major role in maintaining weight.

Colors Can Tell A Story About A Room-And You (NAPSI)—Decorators say one of the most beautiful things about color is that it can tell a story, capture a memory or trigger an emotion. For example, black and deep hues can suggest mystery while citrus-like brights can evoke images of summertime fun and turquoise and watery blues often help offer a sense of calmness and tranquility. New Colors, New Stories One of the latest developments in interior paint is a new 240 full-spectrum color palette from Benjamin Moore, one of America’s leading paint manufacturers. The eye-candy array is aptly called Color Stories. These are handcrafted blends that are designed to read richer than conventional colors because they are formulated with more pigments in very precise, exacting amounts. According to paint expert Ray Gomez, these are full-spectrum paint colors, meaning that they contain anywhere between five and seven pigments, using no black or gray tints. Conventional colors use only three pigments and often fill in with black or gray. Environmentally Friendly Unlike other pigments or colorants, Benjamin Moore’s are zero-VOC. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be dangerous to human health and can cause harm to the environment. In this case, the company makes its own colorants. So when the colorants are added to Aura, which is the only paint formulation being offered for this special series and is the brand’s ultimate performance product, the paint remains lowVOC-under 50 grams per liter. Each color in the series is much like a secret recipe. Only select authorized Benjamin Moore retailers are equipped to mix them and, without knowing the correct colorant ratios, these hues are impossible to duplicate. Lighting Is Key The colors in this new palette are best appreciated once the paint is applied and dried. The lighting in a room interacts with colors to yield a visual dynamic that can be an unexpected treat. Natural morning light will affect it one way, artificial or indirect light another, causing the color to take on different characteristics and appearances throughout the day.

SENIOR INFORMATION PAGE Family Doctors Offer Online Health Tips For Caregivers (NAPSI)—If you’re feeling stressed out, tired or unhealthy as a result of your caregiving duties, you are far from alone. According to a recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), nearly three out of four caregivers who care for a family member or friend who is disabled, elderly or has physical or mental limitations said caregiving had at least some impact on their health. Nearly six in 10 caregivers said they lose sleep at least sometimes. “Caring for a loved one is a tremendous responsibility, which can have a big impact on your own health and well-being,” said Glen Stream, M.D., MBI, president of the AAFP. “Caregivers need to know that there are resources available to help them provide the necessary care while also keeping their own well-being in mind.” The AAFP’s award-winning website,, offers practical tips for balancing work and caregiving, dealing with life-changing events, keeping older adults safe, improving communication with a relative with dementia, and depression in older adults. Nearly two-thirds of caregivers surveyed said they were frustrated by having to go to multiple resources for information on a specific health issue. More than half of caregivers felt there was no single online resource for highly credible health information on caregiving. These findings demonstrate that car-

egivers need a comprehensive clearinghouse of information. Understanding caregivers’ need for timely and practical information, has significantly expanded information on the Seniors page. All content is reviewed by family physicians. “The scientifically accurate information found on empowers patients to make informed decisions,” Stream said. “And information helps lead to more constructive discussions between patients and their physicians.” The survey found that nearly twothirds of caregivers who manage the health of those for whom they provide care sought information from their phy-

sician or health care provider. Of those, 96 percent sought information from a primary care physician. Family physicians care for all ages and are able to not only address the health care issues affecting the elderly, but also offer resources for caregivers to help maintain their quality of life. “Family physicians provide a patient-centered medical home for their patients. They coordinate care across all settings, including doctors’ offices, nursing homes, hospitals and many other services that make up our complex and confusing health care system,” Stream said.

Heroes Remembered

NAPSI)—Calling all Korean War Veterans. Mark your calendars and make plans to join Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and the Defense Department’s

Big-Screen Upgrade: TV Or Not TV? That Is The Question (NAPSI)—With prices falling and technology improving, when you’re ready to upgrade to a giant screen for TV, movies and gaming, which is best—a TV or a projector? The short answer is both—because a big-screen TV is best in a bright room for most TV shows, while a projector can provide an engaging home theater experience for watching 3D movies, sports and playing games. Consider the advantages:

A Projector Offers: • Image Size: In general, a projector can produce a larger image at a lower cost than traditional displays. • Scalability: Given the room size, you can choose the perfect image size (ranging from 50” up to 300”). • Portability: The projector’s lightweight, compact design lets you put it away when not in use. • Space: The projector doesn’t take up a lot of space, so you can use it anywhere and even get a giant screen in a small apartment. • Decor: It’s small, so the room isn’t dominated by an electronic display. • Experience: A superlarge screen creates an immersive experience, just like in a theater, particularly with 3D movies and 3D games that practically come to life around you. With a Mitsubishi projector, you can get exclusive 3D eyewear that provides virtually distortion-free 3D performance. A Huge-Screen TV Offers: • Ambient Light: TVs create a vivid display, even in rooms with large windows. • Supersimple Installation: TVs are easy to install and set up; simply place the TV where you want it to be, plug in your source devices and power it up—that’s it.

• Size: The cabinet of one 92” home cinema television is only 24” deep, so it fits through standard doorways. • Technology: Like the majority of digital cinema projectors used in movie theaters, some huge-screen TVs use DLP technology. It’s like bringing the theater home with you. And a cutting-edge technology called LaserVue is made by Mitsubishi Electric, the only TV that uses laser light for more vivid colors compared to other TVs. • All in One: The company’s Diamond Series models have a built-in 5.1 sound

Vehicle Maintenance Tips (NAPSI)—Maintaining your car throughout the year is vital to ensure safety. These tips will prolong your vehicle’s life and may save you from costly repairs. • Change the oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on make and model, to keep the engine lubricated and prevent breakdown of engine parts. • Inspect tires regularly to ensure they have proper air pressure, are in good condition with no puncture marks, and have a solid tread to achieve better gas mileage and avoid safety issues like hydroplaning on rainy days.

Providing Babies With A Healthy And Happy Start: New Charitable Platform by Johnson’s Baby Supports Save the Children (NAPSI)—From the moment of birth, a baby needs essential items to keep him or her healthy and happy. Unfortunately, millions of families don’t always have access to these vital resources. According to Save the Children, 90 percent of U.S. children live in areas at risk of natural disasters. In addition, families worldwide are also impacted by various global natural disasters where mothers and babies are deprived of their most basic needs. The good news is that organizations such as Johnson’s Baby and Save the Children are working in partnership to provide mothers and caregivers with essential basic resources and simple tools that will lend support in times of unexpected crisis. Johnson’s Baby Cares is Johnson’s Baby’s new charitable platform dedicated to supporting the healthy development of moms and babies, while addressing the basic care needs of families during crisis situations through product donations, educational initiatives and financial support. Here are some programs that Johnson’s Baby Cares, alongside parent company Johnson & Johnson, are working on in 2012 to support Save the Children: • Providing relief during disasters: During times of crisis, families need essential baby care items to care for their infants and children. Actress, recording artist and new mom Hilary Duff will assist in the assembly of thousands of “Care Kits” that have been earmarked for distribution to families affected by natural disasters. • Funding that enables Save the Chil-

dren programming: Such as Child-Friendly Spaces, which supplies families and children with safe areas in which to recover, play and experience the joy of being together as a family following a disaster. • Training health workers: Vital training for health workers in developing countries through the “Helping Babies Breathe” program, which teaches basic techniques to prevent birth asphyxia, saving newborn lives. • Getting consumers involved: Consumers can show their support of this

Easy Tiling Ideas (NAPSI)—Renovations don’t have to be costly, messy and time consuming. There are ways to avoid the headaches often associated with home upgrades. Tiles are a great way to add a punch of personality to your home and many tiling projects can be completed in just one day. With a few tools and some elbow grease, you can breathe new life and flair into any room. Get creative inspiration with simple tiling projects you can use to liven up your home: 1. Call attention to one wall of a room with a bold tile accent. Be daring with patterns, or make it modern with subway tiles. 2. Tile the kitchen backsplash to add color and protect the wall from cooking messes. Bondera TileMatSet, a doublesided, peel- and-stick tiling adhesive is a great tool to use instead of mortar and mastic, eliminating the mess and allowing you to grout immediately after positioning the tiles.

3. Modernize old trivets by using the tile adhesive to create a custom tiled pattern that pops against tableware. 4. Explore your creative side by designing a charming tile pattern on an old tabletop, which will add pizzazz to lunches and evening drinks. For more on these and similar projects, visit

Why Veterans Are Choosing Career Colleges (NAPSI)—After serving their country, many veterans are returning home to another kind of battle: the struggle to find a job in a recovering economy. A recent study by the Department of Labor found that “young male veterans (ages 18 to 24) who served during Gulf War era II had an unemployment rate of 29.1 percent last year, higher than that of young male nonveterans (17.6 percent).” For many of these veterans, the problem is the lack of a college education. Fortunately, a generous 9/11 GI Bill allows vets to pay for college. The bill covers traditional colleges but it also covers institutions known as career colleges. These colleges train students for a specific career, trade or profession— such as nursing, graphic design, medical technician, culinary arts, fashion design and media arts. There has been some debate about the value of such schools and some critics have said that many of these schools target veterans because they have governmentbacked tuition money—and then don’t deliver a quality education. Yet many veterans insist that career colleges address their unique needs. According to the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities, individuals who have served their country select these institutions for many reasons, including career focus, flexible schedules, smaller class sizes, concentrated program offerings and other attributes that make institutions military friendly. One group has come together to address the concerns. Saving Our Student Veterans is a coalition of Veterans Service Or-

ganizations, career colleges, and college admissions officials who have proposed a solution that would protect a veteran’s choices but make sure that veterans are not taken advantage of. One example is Military Families United, a national coalition of Gold Star and Blue Star families, veterans and other Americans who share an appreciation of our military, which has partnered with proprietary colleges to provide opportunities in education.

A Trip To Remember (NAPSI)—There’s a lot to see at the newly renovated John Deere Pavilion in downtown Moline, Ill. The completely transformed pavilion offers an up-close look at the company’s global business and products, its rich history, as well as solutions to meet the challenges of providing food for the world’s growing population. The pavilion features interactive displays, original artifacts, product simulators and a variety of media to engage visitors in a fun and exciting learning environment for the whole family. Several new exhibits include The Legacy of John Deere, which profiles company decision makers from the past 175 years. Our Growing Planet examines big challenges facing a growing global population and what’s being done to meet those challenges. Innovative Solutions offers breakthrough designs and innovative technologies that help consumers make business more profitable. The John Deere Discovery Zone is an educational, interactive and hands-on op-

portunity for kids of all ages to explore where food comes from, the need for roads and bridges and taking care of the environment. Cotton To Blue Jeans weaves the story of cotton from seed to shelf, where the end product is the ever-popular blue jean.

Memorial Museum Keeps Legacy Of World War II Airmen Alive (NAPSI)—A museum has taken on the urgent task of preserving the history of World War II airmen. Many of the “greatest generation” signed up to fight and fly when they were only in their teens or 20s. John Keema was a 21-year-old airman aboard a B-17 Flying Fortress of the 390th Bombardment Group on August 24, 1943. On a raid over E´vreux-Fauville, France, his aircraft was hit by German anti-aircraft fire. A friend and crewmember of Keema’s was killed and four others wounded. His crippled B-17 ditched in the English Channel, where the survivors were rescued at sea. It was his second mission. “Youthful excitement about finally being in combat was quickly shattered by the bitter truth of war: Men die,” said Keema, now 90. “My friend died.” The 390th Bombardment Group was a part of the 8th Air Force, based in England during WW II. Of the 350,000 men and women of the 8th Air Force, 54,000 were killed or taken prisoner, among the highest casualty rates of any unit during the war. museum. “We encourage anyone associated with the 390th, or their descendants, A Time When Young Men Came of Age to tell us their story.” The average age of an officer aboard a More than 3,000 men and women B-17 was 24.

Moller Library, a

research center for the Air Campaign of Central Europe. The museum houses over 90,000 pages and more than 10,000 photographs documenting the combat history of the 390th, along with memorabilia and historical artifacts from the air war over Europe. The centerpiece of the museum is a beautifully restored B-17 airplane. Known as the Flying Fortress, it became the most recognizable symbol of the European air war.

Facts To Help You Fix Your Deck

(NAPSI)—It may be easier than you think to do a little fix-up work around the house, especially on that great get-away place-the deck. Decks need TLC, too— particularly if those boards are exposed and regularly face wind, rain and heat. Construction expert Joe Sainz has a few tips for homeowners who want to do their own deck maintenance correctly and safely using a single tool. Smart Deck Repair Even the best-protected deck boards are susceptible to twisting, rotting or cupping. And usually it’s that board in the middle of a 30-foot run that’s the issue. A pry bar or a claw hammer can be used to remove the compromised piece, but it’s easy to injure boards around it. The smart option is to do some strategic cutting. A multi-tool, such as the Bosch Multi-X and its many cutting blades, is well suited for this job. Start by using the tool with a wood-cutting blade to remove a board section between the joists to allow access, then make a quick change to a metal-cut-

ting blade and get between the remaining boards to cut the nail. Once the board is removed, measure the opening, cut a new piece of treated lumber and attach with a galvanized fastener. Be sure to allow for an 1/8-inch expansion.

Now that’s a repair that saves both time and money. And this process can be used on handrails, as well. Save the Stairs Stairs face the same heat and weather abuse that deck boards do, so they can easily become cupped, with the front of the step higher than the remaining surface. This is another job for the multi-tool. There are a couple of options for reworking your existing stair. Using the rasp accessory, work down the high spot at the front of the stair, then follow up with a sanding triangle to smooth the surface. An alternative for addressing high corners is to place a segmented cutting blade flat on the stair and then push it toward the high spot to cut away the excess; sand to smooth the surface.

The Key to Great Grilling Build the Right Fire — Use different briquet arrangements depending on what’s going on the grill. 

Thinner pieces of meat respond best to high temperature, directheat grilling, which requires spreading the coals out evenly across the grate.

Thicker pieces of meat cook beautifully all the way through, without burning on the outside, with a two-zone fire.

Stack briquets to one side of the grate for high and low temperature zones. Begin cooking directly over the coals until the outside of the meat has reached the desired doneness; then move the meat to the other side of the grate (the low temperature zone) to finish cooking.
