Always Watch Parade
-by Vince Vicere
Memorial Day weekend was filled with photo opportunities but, as usual, we concentrated on the parade and memorial services in Veteran’s Square. While a small number of pictures are found on the pages of this issue, most of the 130 pictures taken can found in our photo gallery associated with the online version of the paper………Other photos included in this week’s edition are one of Mike Brown, a rock musician coming to town to entertain at three different locations here, a couple from the ongoing Monte’s Monster Challenge, and two that display a kiddie carnival 12-seater swing to be found at the Marsh residence on Lee Driver Road……..The Memorial Day parade seemed better this year than in the past. It was not a particularly long parade but there were many interesting quality divisions. And it seemed like there was more music in the air for the entire parade. More notably, while not quite successful, an attempt was made to use the loudspeaker system along the parade route. In all, a decent parade………While Veteran’s Square wasn’t quite as crowded as usual, the Memorial Services went smoothly and seemed to flow quickly from verbal messages, music, laying of the wreaths, through the gun salutes……..It was a wonderful experience over the last week to ten days to see gasoline prices fall in Bradford from nearly $3.00 per gallon to $2.75 per gallon. That should dispel any rumors that price of gasoline goes up over major holiday weekends. This doesn’t mean to say that the price of gasoline isn’t still sucking much of the previously already limited disposable income out of our local economy. But it does mean that this Memorial Day weekend brought with it the warmth and best weather of summer and also an unexpected drop in gasoline prices which was like a breeze on a hot day- it wasn’t much of a change, but it was refreshing………Most recently President Obama is under attack for “being a politician”. What a pity! To set the record right, while it’s true he said he’d bring more than the same old politics to the Presidency if he were elected, he didn’t say anything about quitting as a politician when he took office. We would like to see him be able to lubricate the flow and consolidate the more egalitarian and progressive agenda found in Congress. And politics is how this manipulation is accomplished. A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward. -Franklin D. Roosevelt
Spill Baby SpillCriminal! The 2008 campaign slogan was “Drill Baby Drill.” And if responsible procedures had been in place, off shore drilling would have been the ticket to lessoning of our dependence on foreign oil. Everything seemed to be going well along these lines until hell broke lose in the Gulf with an oil loss and contamination disaster of a magnitude greater than ever seen before. For years, Wall Street, including big oil, has pushed for deregulation of business and has encouraged a laissez-faire attitude by government. And for years big oil has been taking advantage of their newfound liberty. For example, Transocean registered their drilling platform, Horizon (which is really a ship with a drilling rig and pipe racks) in the Marshall Islands where maritime safety regulations are lax. To maximize profits, there has been a significant cut back on preventative maintenance. BP has been cited in the past for the Alaskan pipeline leakage, and the fire and explosion at the Texas City, Texas refinery, both attributable to poor maintenance. Leading up to the Gulf disaster, it’s important to note that big oil has showered $1.7 billion on the White House, Congressional candidates, and members of Congress from both parties. While some have seen this as influence pedaling, others including The New York Times columnist Tom Friedman have called it bribery. Over the years, congress has in this way been coerced to turn down most proposed legislation that would bring more stringent standards for big oil. But even laws that did get passed or remained in place to exact at least a minimal amount of control on oil company activities were corrupted and subdued by the Federal Mineral Management Service, the Agency that was there ostensibly to administer such controls. As the President has said, the time for blame and fancy footwork is over. What is needed is immediate and successful action on plugging the leak, and immediate action to take care of the cleanup.

It’s Time - Let Them Spread Their Wings Another school year has gone by and graduation day is here. By the time your child becomes a senior, you’ve had a fair amount of experience with letting go. You might even believe that you’re adequately prepared for your teen to leave home. You know you’re a sensible, rational adult who’s done a better than average job of parenting. So maybe you can handle the grief of letting go. You have much to be prod of; you’ve raised an independent child who can think for themselves.You’ve been supportive and enthusiastic as they make their plans to leave home. Maybe they’ll get a job, gent an apartment, join the service, or travel through Europe. Whatever your teen’s dream is, you’ve both shared in it. You’ve known from the very first day you became a parent that your child would be leaving you, venturing out on their own. This is the main teenage theme, your teen’s struggle for independence and
your struggle to keep them close and protected. You know you’re supposed to let go. This has been your goal to launch a happy, confident and productive individual into society. This letting-go tuggle-of-war starts around twelve, and depending on how hard you’re holding on, pulling, and dragging, it keeps escalating until you give in and finally let go. In the end, your child will win, as they should. Although at times you may feel like you’ve lost, friends of mine with older children reassure me that the kids won’t leave and desert you forever. Letting go takes courage, for both of you. More and more, you feel sadness as you realize just how quickly your child has grown up. Parenting never stops, it just changes directions and intensity, and these after-highschool years begin another chapter. No, I wouldn’t’ want to relive the physically exhausting “zombie tired” toddler years. And I really enjoy having a child that can carry on an intelligent conversation and is
fun to spend time with. You’ll have a lot of self doubts. Have I taught them what they need to know to live independently? Will they use the common sense they have? Will they make good decisions regarding friends and their future? Will they trust the wrong person? Will they still value my opinion? I’m reminded of a favorite column written by Erma Bombeck. She tells a story which equates launching children to flying a kite.There are many attempts until the kite gets launched into the sky; several times the kite will nose-dive and need retrieved from a precarious situation. Finally, the kite catches the wind just right, and you continue to let out more an more string, launching the kite high into the sky. Now it’s time for you to let out more string and launch your “kite” high into the sky!
WE SALUTE Bradford Area High School Class of 2010 Graduates HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS TO YOU All of your friends will be going their separate ways. Whole new worlds will be opening up for you, full of fascinating and sobering discoveries. But your paths will cross from time to time, bringing back all of the warm and funny memories.

Keep Your Backyard Pool Safe Photos Provided Taking part in the man vs. food contest April 3rd at Monte’s Restaurant with their respective Monte Monster Burgers in hand are Devin Grice, on the left, and Matt Johnston on the right in each photo. The photo on the left depicts the contestants with the normal amount of macho bravado as they face off. The photo on the right shows both contestants, nearly whipped, fifteen minutes into their struggle with Monte’s monster. Devin surrendered at 19-minutes with a quarter eaten, while Matt made it to the 22-minute mark with one-half eaten. While Matt bested Devin, the Monster got them both.
Many Nights Practice Pays Off For Band
Bradford Journal Photo The School Street Elementary School Band marches down Main Street during this year’s Memorial Day parade held May 31st. They sounded good and looked good- the result of many nights of practice.
The Sostakowski Family Waits For Parade
Bradford Journal Photo Waiting for the Memorial Day parade to begin, Mary 31 are (l-r) Mike Sostakowski holding 3-year-old David Leonard, Sue Sostakowski, and 10-year-old Hunter Sostakowski. The weather was pleasant and they were expecting a great parade.
Taking a dip in your backyard pool can be a great way to beat the heat during the dog days of summer. It can be an excellent way to relax with family and friends or be a part of a regular exercise routine. As much fun as a pool can be, it can also be a source of danger. Unsupervised or poorly protected swimming pools and hot tubs can be very inviting to young children. A curious child can enter a pool area before an adult realizes he or she is missing. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports an estimated 350 children under age five drown in swimming pools each year. Another 2,600 are treated in hospital emergency rooms. Nationally, drowning is listed as the leading cause of death to children under five. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a pool in your backyard. There are a number of preventative measures you can take to ensure a safe and enjoyable backyard.With available self-latching gates, safety covers and underwater alarms, you can prevent young children from having access to the pool without appropriate supervision. The CPSC has a number of publications available through www.cpsc.gov to help you. When the weather heats up, a backyard pool can be a great way to cool down. Make sure yours is safe as well as enjoyable.

One easy way to add pizzazz to your baked treats is with baking cups. For example, fashion-inspired Reynolds® Baked for You® StayBrite™ Baking Cups are unlike other paper baking cups--the patterns won’t fade during baking. Their brilliant colors and designs are still visible even on chocolate cake after baking. Here’s a fun idea using a monkey-andbanana theme to help make your next party a jungle of delight.

Your Ice Cream Dreams Fulfilled
(NAPSI)-Here’s the scoop--Amercians really love ice cream and novelties. People living in the United States indulge more than those in any other nation in the world, averaging a whopping 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year. Some additional “cool” facts: • The first ice cream parlor in America opened in New York City in 1776. • It takes 12 gallons of milk to make one gallon of ice cream. • The most popular flavors are vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan, strawberry and Neapolitan, followed closely by chocolate chip and French vanilla. • Cherry is the No. 1 popsicle flavor. Twin popsicles were invented during the Depression so two children could share one treat. Remember to make the ice cream aisle your last stop, keep your frozen purchases in a separate section of the cart and pack your ice cream in an additional brown paper bag for the ride home. To make an easy, elegant dessert for family and friends, try a simple sauce over ice cream. Ice Cream with
Raspberry Sauce ½ gallon vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt 12 oz. (1½ cups) frozen raspberries 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1/3 cup sugar Fresh raspberries and mint (for garnish) For sauce, combine raspberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and sugar in small saucepan and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Cook until berries have broken down (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and cool. To serve, place three large scoops of ice cream in each dish and top with raspberry Sauce, a few fresh raspberries and mint leaf. Serves 6.

Display A Restored 12-Seat Carnival Swing
Bradford Journal Photo On Saturday, May 29, over the Memorial Day weekend, friends and relatives pose at a 12-seat kiddie carnival swing at the Rob and Marsha Marsh residence on Lee Driver Road. Wayne Marsh, Rob’s father, purchased the swing in 1958 for $50.00 for his kids and the neighborhood kids where Rob and his brothers and sisters (eventually 10 in number) enjoyed it during their childhood years on Erickson Drive. They would sometimes have a carnival of their own and charge 10 cents a ride. Following the passing of Wayne Marsh in 2002, the swing, which originally sported a Wyatt Earp figure, was moved to Rob and Marsha’s place where Rob has spent the last four years restoring it. Included in the photo are Sally Sposato, Breyan Wesmiller, Brian Wesmiller, Paula Butler, Owen and Justin Wesmiller, Janet and William Wesmiller, Troy and Jack Mead, Barb Marsh, Tommy and Corrine Butler, McKenzie Mead, Tyler Sposato, Carrie Abrams, Rob and David Marsh, Reese Kinney, Aiden Butler, Lydia Sposato, Alanna Mason, Domenic Quinn, and Luca Quinn.

An Open Letter to New York Citizens and City Officials Concerned About Air Quality:
Air quality is a critical concern for Central Boiler, the leading manufacturer of outdoor wood-burning furnaces, along with other manufacturers. Manufacturers have invested significant resources to develop state-of-the-art furnaces that today can heat a home while producing extremely low particulate emissions. You may have received misinformation about outdoor wood furnaces. The recent technical advances – made in concert with the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – are not understood by critics of outdoor wood-burning furnaces. Instead, their concerns are based on isolated incidents caused by improperly installed outdoor furnaces, which can be remedied by correcting the installation issue. Central Boiler has worked with the EPA since 1995. More recently, the company, along with other hydronic heater manufacturers and state air regulators, worked with the EPA in establishing testing standards for measuring emissions and efficiency while providing education about proper installation, use and maintenance of its products. The advances in outdoor wood-burning furnaces are the result of the new EPA standards developed under the agency’s voluntary Phase 2 “Hydronic Heater” program. According to EPA’s proposed schedule, federal emission rules will be enacted that limit sales of outdoor hydronic heaters after April 2012 to those that are Phase 2 models, which are 90 percent cleaner than unqualified models. Air quality is important to preserving life. Producing heat with renewable resources such as wood creates energy independence and carbon neutral heating options for people. Central Boiler is committed to innovation, education, testing and public-private partnerships that preserve both. For more information regarding outdoor furnaces, including a sample ordinance, visit www.OutdoorFurnaceFacts.com. Please call Central Boiler if you have questions regarding outdoor wood furnaces. Sincerely, Rodney Tollefson Central Boiler 20502 160th Street Greenbush, MN 56726 1-800-248-4681

“Brain Attack” New Term For Stroke
Question: My husband’s doctor told him he might have a “brain attack” if he doesn’t control his high blood pressure and diabetes. What is a “brain attack”? I have never heard of this, and I am 75-year-old former nurse. Answer: A “brain attack” is a new and increasingly popular term for a stroke, and it’s catching on among physicians and the general public. The idea is that, since everyone seems to respond to the term “heart attack,” people might pay more attention to the risk of stroke if it had a similar name. After all, the two disease processes are quite similar, as you know from your nursing days. In a heart attack, the arteries that carry blood to the heart muscle either rupture or become blocked. In a brain attack, the arteries servicing the brain rupture or become blocked. Once these critical arteries fail, the heart or brain is deprived of blood, and therefore, oxygen. Without oxygen, heart and brain cells both begin to die. Strokes are the leading cause of disability in adults, and they kill more than 150,000 people in the U.S. each year. Risk factors for both strokes and heart attacks include high blood pressure and diabetes, as you mentioned, plus smoking, elevated cholesterol and heart trouble. Although the causes of strokes and heart attacks are similar, the symptoms differ widely. Heart attacks cause shortness of breath and pressure, squeezing or pain in the chest and upper body. A brain attack or stroke, on the other hand, usually causes sudden, partial paralysis and/or an inability to walk, talk, eat or swallow. One common warning sign of a brain attack is a transient ischemic attack, or “mini-stroke.” These come on with the same symptoms as a full stroke, but last short periods of time. Other stroke warning signs include difficulty speaking or understanding speech, problems walking, severe visual disturbances -- often in one eye, and sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the face or in limbs on one side of the body. Any of these symptoms should be viewed as medical emergencies, even if they fade away within hours or even minutes. Immediate treatment can prevent a full stroke –- and potentially, death or permanent loss of function. One possible problem with the terms “heart attack” and “brain attack,” is that while the phrases sound serious and familiar, they somewhat obscure the source of the problem. There is no “attack” on the heart or brain, and neither do these organs “attack” the body. Instead, as I described above, the problem occurs within the arteries, or the vascular system. Perhaps the bigger issue here is that many people do not understand terms

This photo shows only a small number of those on the truck since it covers only twenty per cent of the length of one side of the flatbed carrying them. related to the vascular system, such as atherosclerosis –- the leading cause of both strokes and heart attacks. Atherosclerosis is the build-up of dense, fatty
plaque in the arteries. Avoiding this condition, through a healthy diet, exercise and regular doctor visits, will help you prevent both heart and brain attacks.

Q: In order to turn my fat to muscle, should I focus on exercise or
A: Fat and muscle are actually two completely separate tissues that can’t turn into one another. So you are looking at two separate goals: losing excess body fat and increasing muscle. You burn more calories when you include regular physical activity in your life than when you are sedentary, which helps maintain weight and can slowly lead to weight loss. But the amount of physical activity that most people with excess body fat can work into their lives doesn’t usually lead to as much weight loss as they hope.Work physical activity into your lifestyle if you haven’t already, but you’ll probably be more successful at weight loss if you also change eating habits to decrease calorie consumption: lower calorie drink and food choices, smaller portion sizes or some combination of these. To build more muscle, it’s important that you eat a healthy diet that provides enough protein and other nutrients and doesn’t cut calories too low. However, diet alone can’t build muscle. Regular physical activity, including strengthtraining two or three times a week, is the recipe for more muscle. Q: Is sprouted brown rice really a healthier choice than regular brown rice? A: Sprouted brown rice (also called germinated brown rice) is regular brown rice that has been soaked for 12 to 24 hours and allowed to germinate before it is cooked. Fans of the product say that it’s less irritating to the digestive tract and less likely to promote allergic reactions than regular rice and believe that its nutrients are better absorbed. However, all rice is generally considered a non-irritating food and is unlikely to produce allergic reactions in most people. Rice is a good source of water-soluble B vitamins, and because the water in which the rice soaks is discarded, we might be concerned about loss of those nutrients. I can’t find a complete nutrient analysis to see whether or not there is a significant loss. Emerging research suggests that sprouted brown rice may contain compounds that promote blood sugar control. However, the studies showing an advantage for diabetes are generally comparing sprouted brown rice to refined white rice; there’s usually no difference compared to regular brown rice. Whether or not it’s actually healthier than regular brown rice, some people prefer it simply for its softer texture and mildly nutty flavor. People who have trouble making the move from white to brown rice may find the taste and texture of sprouted brown rice a good mid-point between the two.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE JUNE 3 - 9, 2010
ARIES - (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19) Prepare the rocket launchers, for the rebellious Uranus joins your sign for the next three months. This can be a liberating vibe, asking you to shake things up and be less hamstrung by convention. TAURUS - (Apr. 20 - May 20) Saturn ends a backward journey in your sector of fun and romance. If life has seemed to have been thin on the ground in either of these two areas of late, there can be an easing. GEMINI - (May 21 - June 20) Your sheer willpower and upbeat mood can help you overcome any difficulties at home. Someone may need joshing along but if anyone can show the leadership needed, it’s you. CANCER - (June 21 - July 22) Your love of stability can be challenged.Yet, ironically it can be you who rocks the boat as much as anyone else. LEO - (July 23, - Aug. 22) As long as you balance lashings of common sense with your more gogetting instincts, this can be a better time financially. VIRGO - (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) Saturn has been urging you to cut the deadwood out of your situation, not just recently, but over the last three years. LIBRA - (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) This is a dramatic week, as the planet of unpredictability sweeps into your opposite sign. This can bring a racier edge into your love life. SCORPIO - (Oct. 23, - Nov. 21) Saturn ends an unhelpful rewind in the future zone of your ‘scope, and on the face of it, your options would become clearer. But if anything, you can start to feel even more restless. SAGITTARIUS - (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) You can find yourself lusting for a livelier social life. You may also find yourself attracted to a new and quite dashing person. In fact, the next three months can be a time of real opportunity. CAPRICORN - (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) Some surprises are very much a possibility, not just this week but in the next three months too. These can relate to a sudden decision to move home, to sell up or to have a child. AQUARIUS - (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) Both your ruling planets of Saturn and Uranus are active this week. Bright themes can see you hit the jackpot, but it is essential that you carefully consider who you are dealing with. PISCES - (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) Big ideas are all very well, but you need to look to the details.You could run into someone who is much more demanding than you expect and they’ll soon put you on the spot.

Don’t Let Falls Trip You Up: Tips On Avoiding Falls (NAPSI)-An activity as simple as falling down can have a number of serious consequences for an older person. For example, some say a fear of falling can be a very real factor when it comes to a loss of mobility in the elderly. Fractures of the hip or forearm are also common results of falling among the elderly. Hip fractures in particular can lead to other health problems because of prolonged immobility and risks associated with surgery. To help, here are some general tips to reduce your risk of falling: • When you first wake up, sit on the edge of the bed and make sure you are not dizzy before you get out of bed. • Eat breakfast every morning. Skipping a meal could make you dizzy. • Use a cane or walker if you are unsteady, and replace worn rubber tips. • Never grab a towel rack, shampoo holder or soap tray for support in the shower. These will not support a person’s weight. • Let the soap suds go down the drain before you move around in the shower. Don’t turn suddenly. • If you are not close to the telephone when it rings, don’t rush to it. Fast moves can throw you off balance. • Make sure you have access to a telephone that you can reach to call for help if you fall. Consider carrying a portable phone. According to a leading national provider of home care--Interim HealthCare-some medicines may also increase your risk for falling, particularly if they have side effects such as drowsiness, fainting or extreme weakness. However, it suggests that people should never discontinue taking such medicines on their own without consulting with a doctor. The types of over-the-counter drugs that can cause problems include: • Antihistamines. These are medicines
commonly bought to control allergies or when you have a cold and include Benadryl Allergy, Dimetapp Allergy, Aller-Chlor and Chlor-Trimeton. These drugs can cause drowsiness and increase the risk of falling. • Cough Medicines. A drug called dextromethorphan is common and is in Delsym, Drixoral, Pertussin CS and Robitussin. All these medicines have the risk of
some sedation or making you very sleepy and unsteady on your feet. • Decongestants. Pseudoephedrine is a primary ingredient in allergy and cold medicines such as DayQuil and Sudafed and can cause dizziness. To learn more, visit: www.interimhealthcare.com or call toll free (800) 944-8888.
Mike Brown Tours The Tuna Valley Mike Brown is from the Geneseo NY area and has a recording studio, called Temperamental recordings, in an old church he bought a few years ago. You can check out his myspace page at http://www. myspace.com/mikebrownandthesneakies I met Mike some 3 years ago when I invited my friend Scott Anderz to play a private party, he invited Mike. I was instantly amazed, by his music but also by the fact that he lived and worked as a full time musician- no 9-5 job, just music. And he looked it too; tall and scrawny, ratty clothes full beard, and very calm and soft-spoken. Time flew by, as it often does, and after a year or so I contacted Mike to
“Mike Makes Music” see if he wanted to come and visit again. He ended up playing a last minute gig at Lewie’s Lounge, fell in love with the Bradford area, and stayed in town for almost a week this time around. More recently, this March, when Mike messaged me on Face Book and said he wanted to do another gig in the area. I said “Great! When?” He said, Find a place and pick a date- let me know and I’ll be there.” So that’s how I came up with ‘Mike Brown Tours
the Tuna Valley’, 3 venues, 4 shows, 4 nights. We open the tour at Lewie’s Lounge, Thursday, June 3rd, in Bradford (the first place Mike played. So it’s only fitting that Lewie’s is the tour Host). Then it’s off to the Model T Inn in Derrick City Friday night, June 4th. Saturday, June 5th takes us to Your Place in Limestone NY. And finally, Sunday, June 6th we go round trip back to Lewie’s to close out the tour (All show times are from 10pm - 1am)! When choosing venues for this tour, I selected places that were laid-back
-by Jay Coder
and comfortable so that people could be right there with Mike as he played, and venues which compliment his music where he says people often find comfort with their sad thoughts in a small bar with a cold drink or a stiff shot. While these landmark bars and restaurants are off the beaten path, they have a lot to offer. And the atmosphere is FREEthere is no cover charge. Says Mike about all this, “I’m so stoked and excited to get back to the Bradford Area and play again. I just love that place!”
