-by Bob Perry Agreeably, our National Debt is past the point of being manageable and what can be done to reign it in? The Senate is currently controlled by the Democratic party and its leadership is refusing for the third straight year to pass a budget. The reason they are refusing is they do not want you to know just how bad it is. By law, the Senate must pass a budget each and every year but it seems that the law has no penalty if there is inaction - some law! We have reached the tipping point in being able to resolve passing a balanced budget since the tax laws on the books have distorted the sources of revenue. There are some 47% of those who file taxes and do not pay income taxes and are thereby disenfranchised, there is no bipartisan political will to impose even a minimum tax. On the other end of the scale, the high income tax payer realizes paying income taxes over 50% in a lot of instances when state and federal taxes are combined. There is no bipartisan political will to increase the tax rate which would drive more venture capital offshore. Back in 2004 when I ran for the House, I proposed a 2% Federal Sales Tax with some adjustments to be made to the income taxes so as to include the 47% in participating in the solvency of our nation. The efforts of the Flat Tax and Fair Tax, which would bring more fairness into ‘paying a fair share’, have not found the necessary bipartisan support to be seriously considered. Being in an election year, there is gridlock. Do not expect any (Continued on page 5)

5 ¢ENTS WORTH

Masons Honored At Masonic Center

by Grant Nichols

Our readers should remember that there will be no issue published for June 21st as it falls within the week of our annual vacation. We can however, still be reached during the vacation period- June 14th - June 22nd through our e-mail addresses, facebook address, or one of our telephone numbers 814-4653468, or cell number 814-366-0974… …..We decided to make a stop at Barcroft Pool at the Callahan Park for this week’s photos. There, we were able to capture swimmers present for the afternoon session, poolside and in the water, having fun on a bright warm summer’s day, June 11th. As usual, photos not found on the pages of this edition may be viewed in the gallery associated with this issue. In addition, we were able to video some of those at the pool displaying their skills jumping and diving from the board. Included among those actors are Tyler Davis, Paul Stone, Terrance Davis, Heighly Bryington, Nathanael Johnson, Evan Johnson, and Isa Johnson. Naturally the videos are also found in the gallery associated with this issue…….. This week we would like to encourage our regular readers who have not already done so, to remit the small yearly subscription amount requested. It’s nice to be wanted, read and enjoyed but it’s also good to recognize that every reader is important to our economic wellbeing………We took a little trip to Pittsburgh, PA and the surrounding area this last weekend, and there we were met with what we now believe to be the results of unbridled, unregulated capitalism and free enterprise at its finest. Some had mentioned to us before hand that they had once or twice suffered the misfortune of having visited that city in the hills, consisting of rivers bridges and tunnels. Armed with the knowledge of our recent trip to Pittsburgh, we would add that even those who are experienced with driving the expressways and streets of New York City, or Philadelphia would find new vistas of roadway complexities there. What we can’t understand though, is how so little traffic could possibly cause so much congestion……..We’ve heard nothing but good reports regarding Bradford’s new Main Street Manager, Colette Roessler. She seems to be able to communicate with many of the downtown businesspeople who have previously been resistant to change. Here’s hoping she gets the type of trust necessary from the board of Bradford’s OECD to continue in the same direction.

Photo submitted by Mike Matto District Deputy Grand Master of Free & Accepted Masons of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, John W. Wells, standing, was in attendance to present 50 and 60 year pins to long time Free Masons, members of Bradford Lodge 749. From left to right are DDGM John W. Wells, and 50-year recipients, Raymond L. Eidson, Bruce Sherwin, and Homer I. Zumstein, in the Lodge Room, June 5th. This milestone was attended by many members, friends and relatives at the Masonic Center, 625 South Ave., Bradford. Also honored but not seen in photo was 60 year member and pin recipient, Fred F.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES This Father’s Day, Teach Your Kids To Manage Finances As parents, we hope we’re doing a good job raising our children – teaching them right from wrong, instilling the desire to learn and demonstrating how to manage money responsibly. But what if they see us preaching one behavior while practicing another? What’s to stop them from following in our sometimes misguided footsteps? As Father’s Day approaches, let me share a few things dads can do to teach their kids sound financial habits that will last them a lifetime – and point out a few bad behaviors you may not even be aware of. Ask yourself: • Do you avoid conversations about money with your kids because that’s how you were raised? Or because you don’t feel qualified to give advice? • Do you pay your bills on time to prevent late fees and possible dings to your credit score? • Do you balance your checkbook regularly to avoid overdrafts and bounced checks? • Have you set up an emergency fund – and are you disciplined enough not to tap it for everyday expenses? • Are you sometimes caught offguard by bills you should anticipate? • If your family is experiencing financial difficulties (layoff, foreclosure, massive bills), are you having age-appropriate, non-traumatic discussions about

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist

the need for everyone to make sacrifices? • Do you complain about your job within their earshot or say you’d rather stay home with them but need to earn money? You could be setting them up to resent both work and money. • If college is on the horizon, have you had frank discussions about how it will be financed? Have you started a college savings fund, explored student loan programs or discussed contributions they’ll be expected to make? • When your kids constantly break or lose expensive items or run through their allowance early, do you repeatedly bail them out with no consequences? Okay, that’s a lot of potentially negative outcomes. Let’s concentrate on a few positive actions you can take that will encourage responsible financial behavior in your kids: Use allowances to teach your kids how to handle money wisely, not as a tool to reinforce good behavior. Track their discretionary (toys, candy) and non-discretionary (school supplies, clothes) expenses. Depending on their ages and maturity, decide which expenses they should be responsible for managing, and dedicate a reasonable amount for each category in

-by Jason Alderman their allowances. A few other suggestions: • Use allowances to teach important life lessons. For example, build in dedicated percentages they must set aside for savings, charity and investments – then involve them in choosing how the money is spent. • When you use an ATM explain that it’s not free money, but rather has been earned and saved by you. • To encourage saving during these times of low interest rates, offer to match their savings at 50 percent. • Teach by example. If money is tight and you have to deny your kids non-necessary items, give up something of your own that they know you’ll miss. • Open a 529 Qualified State Tuition Plan or a Coverdell Education Savings Account to start saving for your children’s education – and let them know about it well before you start discussing college choices. Father’s Day is when children traditionally express love for their dads. Show how much you care in return by starting them out with a healthy, realistic attitude toward personal finances.

Bradford TOPS #16 -article submitted Anna Wells conducted the TOPS PA #16 meeting on Thursday, June 7th at the First Presbyterian Church. There were 26 weigh-ins with a loss of 23 3/4 pounds. Loser of the week was Anna Wells and Silvana Reed. Losers in waiting are Gail Kio and Anna Wells. Officer of the week is Anna Wells. Loser of the month is Silvana Reed. 50-mile exercise awards went to the Following: Trudy Puller, Donna Douhit, Silvana Reed, Carol Zeigler, Marilyn Gross, Bev. Hannon, Ginny Comilla, Maxine Eschrich, Elaine Harris, Barb. Smead, Anna Wells, and Jean McAdams. A helpful hint was given by Gail Kio. “Munching on a handful of pretzles can help relieve pent up anxiety and fustration. It spurs your body to produce Seratonin for mood lifting.” Bev Hannon gave the thought for the day. “Having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcomming the challenges is what makes life worth living.” Kio also had a fashion tip: “Pushing up shirt sleaves to elbows makes arms look thinner.” Dorothy Youngs’ healthy foods suggestions were: Cauliflower is one of the cruciferous vegtables. They have been suggested as a possable cancer protector. It has 45% of daily vitamin C in 1/2 cup. Chicken Breast is a good way to get protien without a lot of fat or calories if you don’t fry it.

FAMILY FEATURES

F

ood always seems to taste better when enjoyed outdoors. No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets — just right for one bite — are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover. Simply add antioxidant rich beets to frozen lemonade concentrate, and Pink Lemonade is ready to enjoy. A Tex-Mex inspired picnic of Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a meal all its own. The grilled chicken — marinated in liquid from a can of southwestern bean salad — pairs perfectly with the bean salad for a fast fiesta that can be served warm or chilled — just add tortillas and perhaps a margarita. For additional recipes, visit www.AuntNellies.com and www.READsalads.com.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Colic: Why It’s No Crying Matter

Dr. Sears (NAPSI)—While colic can be unbearable for the entire household, there are ways you can treat your baby’s discomfort. Usually presenting itself within the first month of life, colic is characterized by excessive and prolonged bouts of screaming and crying, often lasting until 4 to 6 months of age. The condition affects as many as one in five infants and poses a unique dilemma for parents and doctors.There’s no universally recognized cause for the condition, so the challenge in treating colic lies in identifying the source of the problem. It is widely accepted that colic is a digestive problem in which something is irritating the intestinal system but the exact cause of the intestinal problems can vary. Two common causes are cow’s milk protein intolerance and a recently recognized condition called transient lactase deficiency (TLD), which is an intolerance to milk sugar. A cow’s milk protein allergy can easily be diagnosed by removing all dairy from a baby’s diet, or from the mother’s diet if she is breast-feeding. If this does not put the colic symptoms at bay, a likely cause is TLD. Transient lactase deficiency occurs in babies who are born with insufficient levels of the digestive enzyme lactase in their intestines. This enzyme is needed to digest the milk sugar, or lactose, in breast milk or formula. The undigested lactose sugars create gas, bloating and irritation in the intestines, leading to colicky symptoms. The symptoms caused by TLD are analogous to those presented in older children and adults with lactose intolerance; their lack of lactase enzyme leads to gas, pain and bloating when they drink milk. Fortunately, TLD is a temporary condition that resolves itself when the baby starts producing lactase in sufficient amounts. Before that, TLD can be treated by add-

American Institute for Cancer Research

Q: Does the link between alcohol and breast cancer risk refer to all alcohol consumption or only excessive amounts? A: Alcohol’s link to increased risk of breast cancer begins at modest intake. If a woman has only one or two drinks a week, the actual increase in breast cancer risk is small but research shows that as consumption increases, so does risk. In fact for each standard drink a day there is about a 10 percent increase in breast cancer risk compared to women who drink zero or extremely little alcohol. (One standard drink refers to a five-ounce glass of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or one-and-a-half ounces of 80-proof liquor. Larger portions count as more than one drink.) Women who don’t meet their need for the B vitamin folate are especially vulnerable to alcohol-related breast cancer risk. However, meeting folate needs does not remove risk, and adding more folate than needed does not add additional protection. Alcohol is related to both pre- and post-menopausal breast cancer. A report of over 105,000 women in the Nurses’ Health Study suggests that cumulative alcohol consumption throughout life is important to post-menopausal breast cancer.This adds support to theories that harmful exposures earlier in life can damage breast cells in ways that increase later risk of cancer. Q: My friend told me that I’d feel less depressed if I’d start exercising. Is that true? A: Being physically active could affect mood and brain function in several ways. Studies in people and animals suggest that exercise raises levels of proteins called neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and norepinephrine). These neurotransmitters impact people’s moods and emotions, making people feel less stressed, and seem to be part of how some anti-depressant medications work. Animal studies now also suggest that exercise can promote growth of new neurons (nerve cells) in certain parts of the brain, even in adults, in ways similar to what is seen with antidepressant medications. Researchers also note possible psychological benefits on mood from physical activity that don’t involve actual cellular changes. Both rest and physical activity can improve mood when people are depressed or stressed, but physical activity’s effects seem to last longer. Studies suggest that aerobic exercise (like walking) and strength training are equally effective; and neither needs to be intense or long lasting. Effects of regular physical activity on mood seem even greater after about two months. If you’ve been diagnosed with clinical depression (not just “feeling depressed”), research does suggest that exercise may enhance effectiveness of medication that may be prescribed for you, but definitely do not discontinue medication without consulting with the doctor who prescribed it for you. ing lactase enzyme drops, such as Colief, stores and retailers, including Walmart to breast milk or formula at every feed- and Walgreens. ing. This reduces the lactose load in milk, making it easier for babies to digest. Lactase enzyme drops are completely natural, and can help facilitate continued breast-feeding or prevent the switch to an expensive, hypoallergenic formula. What’s more, with lactase enzymes, babies aren’t deprived of the natural and healthy milk sugar that contributes to brain development. Because colic is such an intricate and mystifying condition, nationally recognized pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears has engaged in an educational campaign aiming to spread awareness of the various causes and available treatments.

MILITARY NEWS:

Navy Seaman Joel A. Godfrey, son of David K. Godfrey, of Bradford, Pa., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Godfrey completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations". This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ''Navy'' flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Godfrey is a 2003 graduate of Bradford High School of Bradford, Pa.

Trampoline Safety

(NAPSI)—Trampolining can be an exciting activity. It also can create hazardous conditions. Orthopaedic surgeons and ER staff treat more than 100,000 trampoline-related injuries each year. The most common injuries are sprains and fractures, which result from falls on the trampoline mat, frame or springs; collisions with another jumper; stunts gone wrong; and falls off the trampoline. “Trampolines can be fun for kids and adults, but they also pose a high risk for injuries, especially when two or more people jump at one time,” said Matthew B. Dobbs, MD and spokesperson for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). “Orthopaedic surgeons recommend that families avoid trampoline recreation centers and trampolines not be used in home environments or in outdoor playgrounds because of the high risk of injuries.” In an effort to reduce the number and severity of injuries, the AAOS came up with these tips: • Trampolines should not be used for unsupervised recreational activity. Use of trampolines for physical education, competitive gymnastics, diving training and similar activities requires careful adult supervision and proper safety measures. • Competent adult supervision and in-

struction are needed for children at all times. • Allow only one participant at a time. • Spotters should be present when participants are jumping. Somersaults or high-risk maneuvers should be avoided unless there is proper instruction and protective equipment, such as a harness. • The trampoline-jumping surface should be at ground level. • Supporting bars, strings and landing surfaces should have adequate protective padding. • Check equipment regularly. • Trampolines are not for children under age 6. • Remove trampoline ladders after use to prevent unsupervised access.

Help With Head Lice

(NAPSI)—There’s good news for parents who have concerns about head lice. First, you’re not alone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S., an estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year among children 3 to 11 years of age. Head lice are tiny, wingless, parasitic insects that live on human hair and feed on small amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. They are spread by direct contact with the head or hair of someone already infested. People cannot catch head lice from pets. If you suspect that a family member is infected, there is no need to panic. The first step is to check all members of the family for both lice and eggs. Infestation may cause itching, a tickling sensation, irritability and small sores, but it’s important to consider other causes before assuming that head lice are to blame. Detecting head lice is easy. A close examination of the hair and scalp will reveal white or grayish crawling forms, about the size of a sesame seed, with six legs (lice) and yellowish white eggs (nits) attached to hair shafts close to the scalp. Should lice and eggs be found, the next step is to gather up all combs, brushes, linens and clothes and wash them in hot water (greater than 130°F). The CDC suggests that if head lice fall off the scalp and cannot feed, they survive less than one or two days. However, some experts recommend sealing items that cannot be washed or dry-cleaned (such as stuffed animals and hair accessories) in plastic bags for two weeks until the lice and eggs die. When it comes to treating your family, you don’t have to resort to harsh chemical solutions: Safe, effective and natural remedies are available. Scientific studies have found that Quit Nits Advance Lice Treatment can kill head lice and eggs without exposing children and pregnant or nursing mothers to toxic chemicals. Quit Nits products, including an Everyday Preventative Spray, are safe to use as frequently as required. (These statements are based upon traditional homeopathic practice. They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.) For valuable offers, more information about homeopathic Quit Nits and facts on head lice, visit www.QuitNits.us. You can find these products at supercenters, pharmacies, grocery and natural food stores.

Let Simplicity Shine (NAPSI)—There’s a delicious flavor movement taking hold. Food lovers are embracing real, focused flavors over complex presentations that are more like science experiments than recipes. Guided by the motto that “the most memorable food is often the simplest,” now we are celebrating quality ingredients at their peak of flavor with straightforward preparations. This trend is identified in the McCormick® Flavor Forecast® 2012 as “Simplicity Shines.” “We’re seeing a new appreciation for real, natural goodness, especially now, when warmer weather inspires a simpler approach to eating,” said Chef Mark Garcia of the McCormick Kitchens. “In this case, ‘simplicity’ isn’t just about quick and easy-it’s about a clarity of flavors that reminds us what ‘real’ food tastes like.” The pairing of vanilla with butter is a perfect example of this trend. Together, these back-to-basics flavors have the power to elevate everyday meals in a way that’s anything but basic. Pure essentials in baked goods, these ingredients inspire new savory recipes that bring the flavors to the forefront in surprising ways. Vanilla-Butter Shrimp Rolls are a new take on a regional American favorite. Unmistakable vanilla highlights the natural sweetness of shrimp, while butter adds richness to these classic sandwiches. The vanilla-butter combination also enhances ice cream sundaes with Easy Butter Toffee Sauce—a sumptuous blend of butter, sugar, vanilla and cream.

Take Dinner Outdoors With An Easy Summer Picnic (NAPSI)—As the weather heats up, picnics offer the perfect outdoor activity for family, friends and foodies alike. A meal under the sun provides a picturesque setting to impress loved ones with an onthe-go gourmet feast while making the most of your time outdoors. Any picnic pro knows that a great meal includes seasonal, easy dishes that celebrate the season without causing extra work or hassle. For many, packing food for travel and anticipating the heat can put limitations on picnic dishes. Chef Edward Leonard, Certified Master Chef and Le Cordon Bleu executive chef, offers his own picnic pointers to help anyone create the perfect alfresco meal. “Everyone loves a picnic, but eating the standard sandwich can take the excitement out of it,” said Chef Leonard. “To make the most of your picnic experience, it’s essential to think about featuring seasonal foods that celebrate summer.” Le Cordon Bleu chef instructors suggest keeping your meal light with plenty of salads and fruit. The chefs recommend making a watermelon and feta salad or creating an heirloom tomato salad with fresh herbs like basil or sage. For protein, focus on meats that are cooked slowly at a low temperature because they tend to keep well. Try cold pulled pork or roast beef. When it comes to side dishes, consider cultured, pasteurized ingredients—like sour cream or Greek yogurt—for the base of any sauces. This will eliminate any issues with using egg-based products that can go bad in the heat. “Picnics are a great time to try out new seasonal dishes and enjoy fresh, local produce,” said Chef Leonard. “We teach our students to appreciate local ingredients and find the best ways to showcase the flavors.” Students at Le Cordon Bleu learn the foundational techniques necessary to use their skills and passion to create exceptional dishes. Regardless of your comfort in the kitchen, picnics provide a great opportunity to create flavorful dishes that will make for a memorable meal. “If you are looking for fresh meal ideas or want to brush up on your cooking skills, I encourage you to attend an enthusiast cooking class at Le Cordon Bleu,” said Chef Leonard. “Our campuses around the country host hands-on classes where foodies can experience a class with a professional instructor.” Visit www.chefs.edu to learn more.

Swimming Pool Practices To Protect Your Family (NAPSI)—Warm weather beckons for families to hit the pool-whether that is in their backyard, the community pool or a water park. But before families take the plunge, they should consider the best ways to protect themselves from getting sick from a potentially harmful source— unhealthy pool water. According to a recent survey conducted on behalf of the Water Quality and Health Council, the majority of Americans (81 percent) believe that others are urinating in pools, while one in five (20 percent) admit doing so themselves. In addition, 83 percent of those surveyed said they were concerned with others swimming when they have diarrhea. Below are some simple tips to help keep swimming pool use safe and healthy: • Shower with Soap—Swimmers should wash with soap and water before they go swimming. Germs on the body end up in the water, so preventing germs from entering the pool is key. • Check for Healthy/Safe Water Levels—Before getting in water at a public pool, water park or even your own backyard pool, check chlorine and pH levels with pool test strips. “Proper chlorine and pH levels maximize chlorine’s germ-killing power,” said Michele Hlavsa, chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Healthy Swimming Program. “Testing the chlorine and pH levels before you get in the water is an important step you can take to protect your health and your family’s health.” AquaChek Pool and Spa Test Strips allow you to test for appropriate levels of chemicals in pool water and are easy to use. Simply dip a test strip into your pool

Sweet Talk (NAPSI)—If you are sweet on someone with a sweet tooth, getting a gift can be a piece of cake—or something else equally tasty. Here are a few gift ideas for the object of your affections or anyone who has ever done anything sweet for you: • Arrange for a year’s worth of deliveries of the ice cream flavor of the month. • Bake that special person a cake and decorate with a photo transfer of the two of you together. • Give candies specially printed with the person’s name. • Bring over a basket full of flavored coffees and cookies with similar flavors. • Send a tasty fresh fruit bouquet from Edible Arrangements®. Each local store makes delicious fruit bouquets, as well as delectable boxes of chocolate-dipped fruit, fresh made and delivered same day. And this summer, you can visit their website for the sweetest deals of the sea-

or spa/hot tub, then compare it to the color chart on the product’s label. You’ll know immediately how safe and clean pool water is and what chemical adjustments are needed to ensure continued cleanliness. Backyard pool owners should test pool water at least three times a week if the pool is not being used and more often if use of the pool increases or environmental changes occur (like rain, pollen, animals, etc.). Public pool users can also pack test strips in their pool bag to check that the water is safe for swimming. • Curb Contamination—Avoid swimming if you have diarrhea. You can make other people sick by spreading invisible amounts of fecal matter in the water.

• Insist on Healthy, Safe Water—Insist that your family and others in the pool follow basic guidelines when it comes to healthy swimming practices. Test the water at public pools and report any potential issues, such as improper chlorine levels, to a pool operator. If the pool operator does not take action, contact your local health department. • Stop Sipping the Water—Don’t swallow the water you swim in, as even a small amount of contaminated water can make you sick.

Healthy Eating On The Go (NAPSI)—Today’s families are more on the go than ever, spending many hours each week in the car, making it seem hard to make time for your family to eat healthy, nutritious foods. Increased time spent in the car has led many families to eat on the go. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 48 percent of the money spent on food in this country pays for meals eaten away from the home. During hectic days, families need energy to keep them going, but they often end up choosing more convenient foods that are high in fat, added sugar and calories. This year, you can introduce your family to the idea of GO, SLOW and WHOA foods to help them eat healthier. GO foods are low in fat, sugar and calories and are “nutrient dense” (rich in vitamins and other nutrients). Try to avoid SLOW and WHOA foods that are higher in fat, added sugar and calories and that, often, offer fewer nutrients. Whether you’re off to a Saturday away game or driving your children to their weekly activities, use these tips for healthier eating: • Pack GO foods ahead of time. If you have a busy day with your family plannedincluding time in the car-pack healthy snacks in a small cooler or tote bag before you leave. Consider water, fresh fruit or veggies, low-fat cheese sticks, wholegrain crackers or a low-sugar cereal portioned into baggies. • Make healthy choices at fast-food restaurants. Sometimes, when you are traveling by car, fast food is the only option.

Try making healthier choices such as sandwiches without cheese, salads with lowfat or fat-free dressing, replacing French fries with sliced fruit, and swapping fried meats for grilled options. • Read the labels. Stopping at convenience stores for a snack can easily lead to unhealthy choices. Looking at the nutrition label can help you and your children make the best choice. Pick snacks or beverages that are low in calories and added sugar-some stores stock fat-free or low-fat yogurt, fruit or individually portioned trail

mix. Try to re-member that some prepackaged foods may look like a single serving but actually contain multiple servings. For more information on maintaining a healthy diet, visit the We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition)® website at www.nhlbi.nih.gov/ health/public/heart/obesity/wecan/eatright/choosing-foods.htm. Developed by the National Institutes of Health, We Can! provides parents, caregivers and communities with free tips, tools and guidance to help children maintain a healthy weight.

Natural Biomedicine Offers Effective Pain Relief (NAPSI)—Understanding what pain is and that there are safer ways of treating pain than using oral pain pills can be a painless first step in finding safe, effective relief. When you experience pain, your body sends signals to your brain demanding attention. Pain pills block the transmission of the signals, but the source of the pain remains and your pain returns. Also, pain pills can be toxic and many cause serious side effects. Fortunately, there is a safer way to relieve pain. Patented natural biomedicine Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream provides a better solution. When you apply the cream to the affected area, specialized cells stimulate the removal of toxins and excess fluids, restoring oxygen-rich blood so your body can heal the source of your pain. The natural biomedicine is effective to relieve arthritis pain and even difficult-to-treat pain such as occurs with fibromyalgia and neuropathy, both diabetic and chemo-induced.

Top 5 Tips for Perfect Grilling 1. Clean and pre-heat grill on high. 2. Lightly oil and season everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3. Sear the outside of steaks when grilling, using tongs or a spatula to turn the meat, and cover the grill as much as possible during the grilling process to help lock in the great flavor and to prevent flare-ups.

4. Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked steak. 5. Place your cooked steak on a clean plate and allow to rest for five minutes before serving to retain moisture and juiciness.
