It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “Gulf Oil Spill Revisited ”

Most noticeable to me was below the shear on the pipe was a flange and since the government was controlling the situation on what was allowed to happen I wrote to Senator James E Risch of Idaho ( a member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources) suggesting to him that if they would simply unbolt the flange to remove the sheared pipe and place an open valve on the flange, bolt it and slowly close the valve the oil flow would be stopped.

COMMENTS & OPINIONS

5 ¢ENTS WORTH

by Grant Nichols

First on our list of stops for this week’s photography was Mr. Thompson’s third grade classroom at School Street Elementary School, Friday, April 27th. There we found most students working on research reports (looking into future occupations), some taking tests, and one student, Mitchell Signor, writing a chapter book. Down the hallway and up the stairs, fourth and fifth grade students in Mike Grady’s room were learning the rudiments of their trombones and trumpets. Next day, April 28th, at Fretz Middle School gymnasium we photographed the Thunders team and Blizzards team following their last game of Bradford Community Soccer Club play for the season. Next we stopped at the New Keystone Restaurant and Bradford Legion Post #109, to collect some photos of Relay For Life Cancer fundraiser known as The Bar Stool Open. Later in the afternoon we stopped at the Heritage Suites were a 31 bags and totes party was taking place for the benefit of local autism organizations. And finally, to polish off the week we visited the Burgers and BBQ location where we had been told we could find a newly constructed Street Stock Car, ready for this year’s racing at State Line…….. Remember the Tortugas Restaurant Cinco de Mayo Going Away Party this Saturday, May 5th. While we’ve been told that the Tortugas name and venue are going away, and that a new name and venue have been chosen, we still don’t know what Josh and Jeremy have in mind……..This weekend we’ll experience another annual edition of the East Bradford Stink Fest. The event will go something like this: from 11am to 6 pm there will be a kiddy land with pony and train rides, face painting and the Li’l Stinker Contest. There will also be street vendors and food sales throughout these same hours. From 11am to 2pm Hero Radio (100.1 FM) will do a live remote, the outhouse races will begin at 1pm, and the leek dip contest will take place at 2:30pm at the East Bradford fire station……The Primary Elections in Pennsylvania are over but very little information has been published regarding McKean County Results. For those who wish to see the details of voter activity and political races in McKean County (broken down by party, town and precinct), go to: < www.mckeancountypa.org > and click on “MCKEAN CNTY VOTING RESULTS” at the right side of the screen.

Letter to the Editor: Know What You’re Breathing Pay attention to the 2012 American Lung Association State of the Air Report Dear Editor, As a pulmonologist practicing in Delaware for three decades, I have seen patients suffering from a variety of lung diseases. I’ve seen my patients struggle to breathe and struggle to understand why they could not breathe. I’ve met them in the hospital and in the emergency room, as their struggles to breathe became near impossibility.What I have not seen in all of these years is a decrease in the number of people suffering from lung disease. Lung disease is still the same killer that it was when I first began practicing medicine.And yet, I’m optimistic for the future. The American Lung Association just released its 13th annual State of the Air report. It shows that while the air most Americans breathe is still dirty, still polluted, still filled with too much smog and soot, it’s getting better. But better is not safe.More than 127 million people are living in counties with dangerous levels of either ozone or particle pollution. And for those who already have lung diseases like asthma, COPD, or bronchitis, dirty polluted air makes their symptoms much worse. Thanks to the Clean Air Act, we’ve made great progress in cleaning up air pollution from across the U.S. But there’s still a lot of work to be done. I live and work in the mid-Atlantic, where we have some of the worst air – and best – in the country. • The Philadelphia-Camden-Vineland metro area, which includes five New Jersey counties, was listed in the 2012 State of the Air report was listed as being in the worst 25 city areas for ozone and for daily and year-round particle pollution. • Pennsylvania had two counties among the 25 most polluted in the nation for short-term particle pollution and three counties among the 25 most polluted in the nation for year-round particle pollution. • West Virginia’s air has generally improved compared to last year’s State of the Air report, and in fact was at its cleanest since the first annual report 12 years ago. However, West Virginia also claimed seven of the 27 metro areas listed as the most polluted cities for year-round particle pollution in the country. • In my home state of Delaware, air quality also was at its cleanest since the annual report began 12 years ago. However, factors such as cross-state pollution played a role ultimately in poor air quality grades; all three Delaware counties received an “F” for ozone pollution.

I urge everyone to take the time to visit www.stateoftheair.org and learn about the air quality in their community.Then, take a moment to think about your friends, your neighbors and your loved ones who have lung disease and need our support to fight for air that’s safe for everyone to breathe. Join me in the fight for clean healthy air. Learn how to protect yourself and your family from air pollution by visiting www. stateoftheair.org. Sincerely, Dr. Albert A. Rizzo National Volunteer Chair of the American Lung Association, and pulmonary and critical care physician with Christiana Care Health System in Newark, Delaware, ARizzo@christianacare.org

Writes Chapter Book

Bradford Journal Photo On Friday, April 27th, third grade student Mitchell Signore 9, in Mr. Thompson’s room at School Street Elementary School, shows us the chapter book he’s writing. In the book, entitled Monsters, aliens have taken over the City of Bradford. The story tells how Mitchell and his friends, his sister and her friends, along with his parents team up to defeat them.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES

Should You Buy Wedding Insurance? Disastrous wedding mishaps have long been a comedy staple, probably because so many of us can relate. What bride- or groom-to-be hasn't had nightmares about hurricane-force winds blowing over the reception tent or a drunken cousin falling into the wedding cake? Besides the potential for embarrassing memories, there's a lot of money at stake: The average wedding in 2012 will cost nearly $27,000, not including the honeymoon – about what you'd pay for a wellappointed new car. Just as you wouldn't drive off the lot without car insurance, so you might want to consider buying wedding insurance. It usually costs only a few hundred dollars but could save you tens of thousands if horrendous weather, sudden illness or a bankrupt vendor ruins your day. Many insurance companies now offer wedding insurance. Typically, policies will reimburse you for deposits and charges you've paid to wedding vendors, as well as travel costs and other expenses incurred, if you need to cancel or postpone the wedding for a covered reason. Coverage options, costs and limitations vary widely, so read the fine print carefully. When comparing policies, pay attention to deductibles, maximum coverage limits, exclusions and deadlines for purchasing various options. Probably the most important coverage is personal liability insurance. Many venues require liability insurance and either include it in the rental cost or require you to submit a certificate of insurance from your own policy. Before buying additional liability coverage, check how much coverage your homeowner's insurance provides and whether it applies to wedding events – you may need a special rider or want to buy additional coverage through an umbrella

policy. Make sure all major wedding suppliers maintain their own liability insurance. In addition, any venue providing alcoholic beverages should carry liquor liability insurance. To be safe, you may want to buy your own host liquor liability coverage as well. Other common options include: • Extreme weather. If wedding party members or the majority of guests cannot reach the wedding because of severe weather conditions (snowstorm, earthquake, hurricane), rescheduling costs will be covered. Note: Gloomy skies or drizzle don't qualify. • If a member of the wedding party or immediate family is seriously injured, becomes too ill to attend or dies suddenly, rescheduling costs will be covered. However, illness or injury caused by preexisting conditions may be excluded. • If an essential vendor goes out of business or doesn't show up, you're covered for deposits paid and possibly for the complete cost to reschedule the event. • Some policies will pay to restage the wedding (including travel costs, cake and flowers, etc.) with the principal participants and immediate family members if the photographer fails to appear, botches the shots, or the negatives are lost, stolen or damaged; others may only pay an allowance toward reshoots. • Gift coverage pays to repair or replace lost, stolen or damaged non-monetary gifts. • Wedding attire coverage will pay to repair or replace the bridal gown and other special attire bought or rented for the bride, groom or attendants, when lost, stolen or damaged. And finally, some insurers now provide "change of heart" coverage in case the bride or groom gets cold feet. If that's a real possibility, you should probably in-

tee and the full Senate. I received no further communication on the subject from the Senator. What did happen was that the procedure I suggested was the action that actually happened. Was it the result of my suggestion??? Probably not, but undeniably, over a month of oil flowed into the gulf unnecessarily if the idea had found its way to the right people. That’s approximately 2 million barrels! All this leads me to conclude that the obvious sometimes is not apparent at all to the many people in charge and maybe they should become better listeners.

New Penelec Program (Reading, Pa.) – Pennsylvania Electric Company (Penelec), a subsidiary ofFirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE), has launched its Pennsylvania Act 129 Demand Response Program, which will pay Pennsylvania business customers when they reduce power consumption during periods of peak demand for electricity this summer. This program is designed to help Penelec meet Pennsylvania’s Act 129 requirement to reduce peak demand for electricity by 4.5 percent during the top 100 hours of energy demand during the summer months (June 1 to September 31, 2012). Several providers will assist businesses in Penelec’s service territory with participation in the program. Providers include: ClearChoice Energy: 412-833-4113, ext. 107 Customized Energy Solutions: 267238-4785 Energy Connect: 312-854-8071 Energy Curtailment Specialists, Inc.: 877711-5453 ext. 348 EnerNOC, Inc.: 443864-2007 Hess Energy Solutions: 888223-1524 Key Tex Energy: 724-468-6500, ext. 212 Net Peak: 920-227-2332 “We expect this program will be very attractive to our commercial and industrial customers who can temporarily reduce their demand for electricity by 100 kilowatts or more for a few hours per week,” said Douglas Elliott, president of Pennsylvania operations for FirstEnergy. “Over the summer period, a participant who can reduce their average peak power demand by 350 kilowatts for 12 to 15 days could earn up to $10,000.” For additional information or to enroll in the program, commercial customers should contact their program vendor of choice from the list above or visit: www.energysavePA.com. Penelec serves approximately 590,000 customers in 31 Pennsylvania counties. FirstEnergy is a diversified energy company dedicated to safety, reliability and operational excellence. Its 10 electric distribution companies comprise one of the nation’s largest investor-owned electric systems. Its diverse generating fleet features non-emitting nuclear, scrubbed coal, natural gas, and pumped-storage hydro and other renewables, and has a total generating capacity of nearly 23,000 megawatts.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Protect Yourself From Food Poisoning

(NAPSI)—By heeding a few hints from the experts at the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, you may be able to avoid getting sick when traveling: • Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling any food. If soap and clean running water are not available, use moist towelettes or a hand sanitizer. • If you are traveling with cold food, bring a cooler packed with plenty of ice, frozen gel packs or another cold source. • Rinse fruits and vegetables thoroughly under cool running water and use a produce brush to remove surface dirt. • If you’ll be preparing your food at home, wash food-contact surfaces (cutting boards, dishes, utensils, countertops) with hot, soapy water before and after preparing each food item. • Use separate cutting boards and plates for produce and for meat, poultry, seafood and eggs. Placing ready-to-eat food on a surface that held raw meat, poultry, seafood or eggs can spread bacteria and make you sick. Keep meat, poultry, seafood and eggs separate from all other foods in the fridge. Bacteria can spread inside your fridge if the juices of raw meat, poultry, seafood or eggs drip onto ready-to-eat foods. • Use a food thermometer to make sure meat, poultry and fish are cooked to a safe internal temperature. Bring sauces, soups and gravies to a rolling boil when reheating. Cook eggs until the yolks and whites are firm. • Refrigerate leftovers and takeout foods within two hours. If the temperature is above 90° F, food should not be left out more than one hour. Refrigerated leftovers should be used within three to four days or frozen. • Foods should be reheated thoroughly to a safe internal temperature of 165° F or until hot and steaming. • Don’t taste food that looks or smells questionable. When in doubt, throw it out. • For more information, visit www.fsis. usda.gov or ask a food safety question anytime at www.AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov

Q: Will I get more nutrition from eating carrots raw or cooked? A: Enjoy carrots both ways. Heating does not destroy the antioxidant compounds, alpha- and beta-carotene, that they provide. In fact, studies suggest our bodies absorb them better when carrots are chopped, grated, puréed or heated. When cooking, stirfrying is an excellent choice, as some fat enhances the body’s ability to absorb these compounds. In one study, absorption of beta-carotene was almost seven times greater from stir-fried carrots than from raw carrots. However, that was looking at carrots consumed alone. If you eat carrots as part of a meal, the fat from other foods will be enough to help your body absorb carrots’ carotenoids. Alpha- and beta-carotene are fat soluble and so are not likely to be lost in cooking water. But we don’t fully understand all the protective phytochemicals in carrots and whether they are water-soluble. So in addition to stir-frying carrots, roasting, microwaving or steaming are better choices than boiling them in lots of water. Steaming is fast: quarter-inch thick carrot slices in a steamer basket over an inch or two of boiling water will be tender-crisp in five minutes. Adding chopped or grated raw carrots to vegetable and pasta salads are a few ways you can enjoy carrots in different foods. Q: I’ve cut back on meals to try to lose weight, but I still snack. I don’t seem to be losing weight so do I have to cut my snacks too? A: It might be your snack choices that are holding you back. The latest national survey of U.S. eating habits shows that on average, about a third of the “empty calories” we eat come from our snacks. Empty calories are calories we get from foods that supply little if any nutrients or protective plant compounds. Many of the foods Americans typically choose for snacks come with a high calorie load in a relatively small portion. If snacks are part of your weight control challenge, consider nutritional, behavioral and psychological solutions. If you need only a small snack to tide you over to your next meal, fruit or raw vegetables would be a great choice instead of chips or sweets with calories that add up so quickly. For a snack that will sustain you longer, add a little protein, such as some yogurt or a handful of nuts. Perhaps the problem involves how you snack: if you sit down with the whole bag of chips or cookies, chances are that despite intentions to eat just a bit, you will eat more than you intended.Whatever you choose, take out the amount you think you need and put the container away. Another possibility is that you are using snacks to treat yourself or cope with stress and getting loads of empty calories your body doesn’t need. Look for other ways to unwind that are truly being good to yourself, like taking a break for a brief walk around the block on a beautiful day or even a few moments of deep breathing to decompress. If none of these snacking problems is the issue, check your overall eating habits using the free online MyPlate Food Tracker (https://www.choosemyplate.gov/SuperTracker/ foodtracker.aspx). If you’re not clear about how to make workable changes, find a registered dietitian who can help you individually to develop a strategy.

SENIOR INFORMATION PAGE Spring Into Action To Keep Allergies At Bay This Season (NAPSI)—According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the 2011-2012 winter is the fourth warmest on record. The mild weather is triggering an unusually early release of pollen that causes pesky allergy symptoms. Beyond the itchy eyes, sneezing and runny nose, one overlooked side effect of allergies is dry or irritated lips. “Managing allergy symptoms is paramount to get through the season, and it starts with the skin, as it is the first line of defense,” said Dr. Charles Zugerman, associate professor of clinical dermatology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “Dry and cracked lips cause fissures in the skin, leaving them more susceptible to infection. Additionally, by relieving the lip discomfort, allergy sufferers also feel better, which in turn helps them rest and recover.” Zugerman recommends keeping a moisturizing lip balm on hand, such as Blistex Cold & Allergy Lip Soother, especially developed to provide comforting relief and protection for lips that are feeling under the weather due to allergies. A few other ways to alleviate allergy symptoms include: • Use an air purifier to remove contaminants from the air, such as dust, pollen and pet dander. • Ensure that your vacuum has a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. A vacuum without this filter may make allergies and asthma worse by disturbing and blowing the dust particles in the air. • Bathe in cool water and use a mild soap without perfume or coloring. • Wash your laundry in hot water with a temperature of 130 degrees or greater. • Change your clothing after spending a

lot of time outdoors to keep the pollen out of the house. Battling Dry Lips Severe lip dryness and chapping are caused by a number of factors during allergy season, including open-mouth breathing as a result of blocked passageways and the dehydrating effects of medications such as antihistamines. Blistex Cold & Allergy Lip Soother has a special formula that glides on smoothly and feels soft when applied to sore lips to

prevent further irritation. Special ingredients include pramoxine HCL, an advanced analgesic that alleviates sensitivity and lip soreness, pain and itchiness; dimethicone to prevent moisture loss and protect lips; glycerin, lanolin and sunflower seed oil to help remoisturize parched lips; and vitamins C and E, chamomile, green tea, honey and elderberry to comfort irritated lips.

Drivers: A One-Stop Shop For Combating Rising Gas Prices (NAPSI)—As gas prices remain volatile, many drivers are looking for ways to take control of the painful impact on their wallets. While Americans with access to well-developed mass transit systems have alternative transportation options, there are millions more for whom driving is a daily necessity. While these drivers can’t control the unpredictable price of gas, they can look for ways to be more fuel efficient. For drivers looking to make a dramatic change, trading in a gas guzzler can make the biggest impact, but even a small upgrade in fuel economy will make a difference. A vehicle getting 30 mpg costs today’s average driver $968 less to fuel annually than one getting 20 mpg. To help drivers easily find all the information they need to make a smart purchase to “green” their daily driving routine, eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace, has launched eBay Green Driving, a one-stop resource designed to provide drivers with ways to reduce both money spent at the pump as well as their environmental impact. Helpful features on eBay Green Driving include: • Fuel Type Comparison Tool—Developed with data from the Department of Energy’s fuel economy.gov, this unique and user-friendly tool provides simple, side-by-side fuel technology comparisons complete with information on driving range, estimated vehicle cost, estimated annual fuel costs, ecological impact and more. • Easy Searching—Visitors can use a simple browsing feature to quickly search available eBay vehicle inventory by type of fuel, body style or lifestyle to find their

ideal fuel-efficient vehicle. Whether users have their heart set on an electric vehicle or simply want to get the most miles per gallon possible, this tool will help them find the best fuel-saving solution. • Green Driving News and Reviews— A comprehensive green driving resource, eBay Green Driving provides visitors with interesting, shoppable content, such as Prius-model comparisons and fuel-saving driving tips. “Automakers continue to break new

ground with superhigh-mpg models, as well as cars that run on electricity or alternative fuels,” said green-driving expert Bradley Berman. “eBay’s Green Driving site provides an intuitive and easy way for people to search for, compare and purchase these vehicles. There’s a large inventory of cars to consider and a wealth of informative fun content on the site.” To learn more, drivers can visit green. ebay.com/green-driving for more information and guidance on curbing fuel costs.

Helping Teachers Make A Positive Impact (NAPSI)—While summer is often a time when students and parents enjoy their vacation, it can also be a time for teachers to go back to school. That’s because summer is a key time for many professional development programs that are designed to help teachers meet the ever-changing demands of the classroom. For example, ASCD—one of the leading providers of professional development programs for teachers—hosts a number of conferences and institutes around the country to improve the efficacy of educators. At these gatherings, thousands of educators are exposed to ideas, techniques and strategies designed to improve teacher effectiveness and support the success of each learner. Making An Impact Typically, topics covered at these events will range from techniques for improving classroom performance to strategies for

implementing high-quality curriculum. Many believe that what makes these programs stand out is that they have a real impact on educators who participate and, ultimately, their students. This seems to be a characteristic of professional development programs that are considered outstanding. According to a recent study by Scholastic, 85 percent of educators said good professional development programs had either a very strong or strong impact on student achievement. A Focus on Development In addition to conferences and institutes, ASCD also offers a variety of inperson and online professional development resources for educators of all levels. These books, courses, videos and more aid teachers in the never-ending effort to meet the needs of today’s diverse and evolving student population. Promoting Best Practices

Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing the best practices and policies for the success of each learner. The theme of this year’s summer conference in St. Louis, Mo., is “Revolutionizing the Way We Teach and Learn.” The topics addressed at this event will include 21st Century Learning Skills, Classroom Instruction That Works, Effective Teacher Supervision, and Professional Development and Bullying Prevention.To learn more, visit www.ascd.org

How To Save On Your Child’s College Tuition (NAPSI)—While it can be difficult to predict what tuition will cost by the time your child attends college, there are two things of which you can be sure: First, the cost of tuition is sure to go up—and there’s no way to predict how much it will rise. And second, a smart way to plan for your child’s college education costs may be to enroll in a prepaid tuition plan. Prepaying for tuition can help you do what most other 529 plans can’t: save on the cost of attending college. And since new tuition rates take effect July 1st, the sooner you act, the more you can potentially save. With student loan debt recently surpassing $1 trillion, it is important to protect your child from becoming one of the many students who graduate college having to repay huge student loans on an entry-level salary. Prepaid tuition plans such as Private College 529 let you purchase tuition certificates that are guaranteed by 270+ participating private colleges and universities, including Princeton and Stanford as well as smaller liberal arts schools and research universities. Additional schools can join at any time and new schools will honor any outstanding prepaid tuition. A semester of undergraduate tuition purchased through the plan today will be worth a semester of tuition for up to 30 years—no matter how much tuition rises or what happens in the financial markets. You do not commit to a particular school when you enroll in the plan or at any point until your student enrolls and you redeem your tuition certificates. Since tuition rates vary among institutions, your contributions purchase different amounts at different schools. You can track how much

tuition you own at any of the participating schools anytime by logging on to your account online. Your prepaid tuition must be held for 36 months before it can be redeemed at a member school. The earlier you prepay, the more you are likely to save over time, but, for example, if tuition rises at a rate of 5 percent per year, enrolling today could potentially save you thousands of dollars by the time your child enrolls. The plan offers the same federal tax benefits as any other 529-college savings or prepaid tui-

tion plan and does not charge enrollment, management or annual fees; 100 percent of your contributions go toward the purchase of tuition. And don’t worry if your student doesn’t attend a college in the plan. You can name another beneficiary, roll over into another 529 account or request a refund. Savers are being urged to make their contributions by June 30th, before the new rates take effect. For more information, visit www.privatecollege529.com

What Actor Tim Kang Wants You To Know That Could Save A Child’s Life

by Tim Kang Actor, The Mentalist (NAPSI)—As a new dad, I am more aware than ever of the dangers that children face and understand how parents would do anything possible to protect them. That’s why I have partnered with the

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to share important information about what parents can do to keep children safe. An analysis of more than 7,000 attempted abductions over the past seven years found that children were at greatest risk going to and from school or school-related activities. Most predators, nearly all men, were driving a vehicle when they tried to abduct a child walking alone or riding a bicycle. The most common lure was offering a ride, typically to girls between the ages of 10 and 14, or trying to tempt them with candy and money or ask them to help look for a lost pet. Here’s the good news: It showed how children were able to get away. Those who escaped did something proactive instead of being passive or polite. They yelled, kicked, pulled away or attracted someone’s attention. Or they simply walked or ran away. Children need to know that it is

okay to say no to someone who may be acting very nice to them. Just spending a few minutes teaching your child about safety could mean the difference between life and death. That is why NCMEC’s “Take 25” national public awareness campaign each May urges parents to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety. More information about the “Take 25” campaign can be found at www.take25.org. Every day, a staggering 2,000 children are reported missing. You can prevent your child from becoming a statistic. Teach kids to always take a friend when biking or walking or standing at the bus stop—and never take shortcuts. They should never accept a ride from anyone or money or gifts unless you have said it is okay. NCMEC is a nonprofit organization that (Continued on page 19)

Eco-Friendly Rose Bushes (NAPSI)—Beloved since antiquity, the sweet fragrance, bright color and showy flowers of the rose have inspired poets, painters and gardeners alike. Even the notoriously thorny stems have always been accepted as nothing more than a minor inconvenience, a small sacrifice for such beauty. In the past few decades, however, the rose’s requirements of careful pruning, frequent pesticide applications and liberal amounts of fertilizer may have dampened some gardeners’ enthusiasm for this “queen” of all flowers. Fortunately, rose breeders sensed the growing dissatisfaction and were ready with something totally new: landscape roses. Unlike the more familiar highmaintenance types, these hardy, vigorous roses shrug off disease, don’t require pruning or deadheading and are adaptable to all types of climates and soil. Extremely easy to grow, landscape roses make showy specimen plants and combine readily with other shrubs as well. Landscape roses are available in an array of gorgeous, can’tpick-just-one flower colors. And here’s what may be the best part: They bloom for months instead of weeks, covering the plant with color from the first early summer blossoms until a hard frost. Landscape roses from Proven Winners come in two distinct groups, each with its own characteristics. The Oso Easy series consists of several low-growing tidy varieties, ranging in height from just 1’ up to 4’ tall. It contains the hardiest landscape roses available, with several varieties tolerating temperatures as cold as -35 degrees F. The colors range from the deliciously delicate Peachy Cream to the luscious pink of Strawberry Crush. Bolder colors are found in Paprika, with rich orange and yellow petals, Cherry Pie, a saturated bright red, and the tropical orange-pink of Mango Salsa. The series is equally at home in decorative containers, perennial

gardens or foundation plantings. You can plant several together for an unusual, fastgrowing ground cover. The Oso Happy series is characterized by plants that bear clusters of small but numerous flowers. Oso Happy Petit Pink is an American Rose Society award winner and is a mass of small, pure pink, petal-packed flowers all summer long. The newest addition to the series, Smoothie, is a thornless rose. Its unique magenta and white flowers are borne atop completely smooth stems, making it fun for flower arranging and extra safe around children and pets. You can try roses in perennial beds, mixed with other shrubs or for an unexpected informal flowering hedge. Landscape roses should be planted where they get at least six hours of unobstructed sunlight each day. In warm places, however, a bit of afternoon shade makes

flowers last longer. Because the plants are so disease resistant, they’ll never require spraying. Their growth habit is much more compact than that of traditional varieties, eliminating the need for pruning. However, a light trim in early spring along with an application of granular fertilizer encourages new growth and more flowers all summer long. The extreme disease resistance and nearly nonstop floral display of these plants often means that the flowers have little of the classic rose fragrance. However, when paired with other fragrant plants, such as Bloomerang reblooming lilac, phlox or sweet autumn clematis, the result is a more colorful, flower-filled garden that can be the envy of the neighborhood.

Getting The Most From Your Workout—Top To Bottom (NAPSI)—No matter the season, preparation is key if you want to get the maximum benefit from your workout. Warming up, for instance, is critical whether your sport is basketball, baseball, spring football, lacrosse or soccer. The same is true when it comes to what you wear—top to bottom. Layering and fabrics all play a role in the success of a workout, especially when the weather is unpredictable. To help, here are a few tips: Choose The Right Apparel: Wearing comfortable clothing that wicks moisture away from the skin can also make a difference. To help make finding the right clothing even easier, adidas has introduced Sport Performance Underwear. It features lightweight, ultrasoft, breathable fabric treated with an anti-microbial finish to inhibit odor. The underwear is designed to work with you during your activity for a more

ergonomic fit. The company also offers Athletic Stretch and Athletic Cotton briefs and a variety of tops and bottoms made from premium soft cotton for maximum comfort. To learn more, visit the website at: www.adidas.com Warm Up: Warming up before starting your routine helps to reduce the risk of tearing or straining muscles. Cool Down: Many believe gradually reducing the temperature of your muscles can help reduce injury and stiffness.

Warm-Weather Style Calls For Color (NAPSI)—If you had to use one word to sum up this season’s hottest looks, that word would be “color”—plenty of brilliant, eye-catching, mood-brightening color in apparel, shoes and accessories. The bright selection of seasonal fashion features on-trend pieces with pops of corals, blues, mint-green, red and fuchsia, and all can be perfectly balanced with white. Not sure which color to try? Look for a variety of options at every T.J.Maxx and every Marshalls, as each store will get fresh shipments of unique designer pieces in this color trend every week throughout the season! With the rainbow of styles found on runways this season, here are a few key looks to try: • Color Blocking: Pair colorful hues in complementary shades. Pick up a red silk top and skinny pink-colored denim or pair contrasting shades, like an emerald top with a violet maxi skirt, for an even bolder style statement. • Pastels: Not in the mood for brights? Try a subdued hue. Mint green, the season’s hottest color, is available in a variety of silhouettes, including denim shorts, flirty skirts and maxi dresses. T.J.Maxx and Marshalls buyers work directly with designers to stock the shelves with colorful pieces at unbelievable prices! Mix mint green tops and white pants with a shoe in a pastel print, or pull a pastel cardigan over a neutral dress for a pop of spring. • Whites: Complement the color trend by adding a touch of white to any outfit for a classically crisp and chic look. Mix pieces with different textures such as eyelet, crochet, pleats or lace for an all-over white ensemble. Try white denim with a coral halter top or accent your outfit with a white tote bag. • Prints: Florals are hot this season in feminine dresses, blouses and even skirts. Polka dots and stripes top the must-have print lists and can be found on dresses, sky-high wedges, shorts and peasant tops. Boho-inspired prints with lace, embroidery and fringed hemlines come through on tribal-printed maxi dresses and peasant blouses cinched with leather belts.

Accessorize with a pop of color, such as with captivating coral bib necklaces and sea-inspired turquoise handbags, or color block with a combination of fuchsia pants and cobalt wedges. Not sure about adding so much color to your wardrobe? Here are some tips: Start out with a small splash—a scarf,

a bag or a brightly colored shoe to add a splash of color to your outfit. Try wedges with prints, color-blocked heels or even bold ballet flats! Replace a classic piece with something more colorful, like a fuchsia cropped jacket, or put a turquoise shell under your navy work suit.

Bring Excitement to Family Dinners (Family Features) Hungry to bring some joy back to your family dinner? Distractions and busy schedules mean many families need a dose of inspiration to bring the zing back to their meals. Luckily it only takes a few small changes to achieve an all-around meal makeover that transforms weekly routine into dinnertime excitement. One great way to cook up fun is to make meals a family affair. From planning to creating, involving your family makes dinner an activity, not an obligation. Plus, it has the added bonus of teaching kids important skills — like writing grocery lists and prepping veggies. Need more inspiration? Dial up the dinnertime excitement with these quick tips from Lawry’s: • Play with Your Food. Let kids of all ages unleash their creativity at dinnertime. Retire formality a couple nights a week and replace it with fun themed dinners of their choosing. Whether you’re serving up mini-versions of classic recipes — like meatloaf “muffins” — or foods on a stick, bringing a dose of whimsy to meals gives your family an amusing and refreshing break from routine. • Flavor Adventure. Every day, you conquer real challenges to gather your family around the dinner table, and getting them to try new dishes shouldn’t have to be one of them. Lawry’s iconic Seasoned Salt is already a tried-and-true family favorite, and now it’s available in new varieties, like Fire Roasted Chile and Garlic and Santa Fe Chili Marinade. These new blends will help bring bold new flavors to the table for a delicious change your family will eat right up. • Dinnertise. The easiest thing you can do to make meals more appealing to your family? Eat and enjoy them yourself. Kids model parental behavior, and are more likely to try something new if they see their parents doing it. You can also build anticipation for the night’s meal by creating a custom video “ad” on Dinnertising.com. Personalize it with family photos, fun themes and recipes, then share

it via Facebook, Twitter or email. For more recipes and tips on how to make dinnertime as flavorful and fun as possible, visit www.dinnertising.com and www.lawrys.com.

Make Now, Bake Later: Meals in a Pinch (Family Features) The refrigerator and freezer are wonderful kitchen tools if you use them to your advantage. Go-to dishes have never been easier, thanks to the classic preservation methods of refrigeration and freezing. With one stop at the grocery store you can have all the ingredients you need to create a variety of wholesome meals in a snap. Know the storage basics. Heavy-duty freezer bags are perfect for keeping sauces, marinades and soups for up to one month, whereas glass containers can provide simple portion control for already assembled dishes. Well-wrapped, double-sealed meals will be less likely to get freezer burn and can be stored for up to two to three months. Make sure to clearly label and date your freezer meals for easy reference. Thaw with care. There are several ways to thaw out your freezer meals, but only a couple of safe ones. You can place smaller containers in the refrigerator in the morning, and then pop them in the oven in the evening. If you are in a hurry, do a quick thaw by immersing the container in cold water or defrosting it on a low setting in the microwave. Go Fifty-Fifty. Serve half to your family now, half later.
