We visited Barcroft pool at Callahan Park for our photos this week. Children of all ages were enjoying a little respite from the 80° plus weather, and enjoying getting together with their friends again over the summer vacation. Readers, as always, can find other photos and variations in the photo gallery associated with our online edition of this issue at : ……..We all know that the Bradford American Legion Post 108 offers Friday night dinners and other various weekend activities. Now they have asked us to give our readers a little heads-up about their new Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday excuses for stopping in at the club to have a good time. On Tuesday nights they are serving a cheeseburger special from 5-8PM; On Wednesdays from Noon to 1:30 PM they are serving lunch; and on Thursday after 5 PM they will be presenting a wing night special……..Recent political activity in the Pennsylvania State Assembly should give people something to think about. With politics as usual we can expect to see battles between Republicans and Democrats as they pass budgets and associated laws. But we are now seeing something very different. Since the House and the Senate in Harrisburg are weighted strongly Republican, we would anticipate an easy flow of all activity. Bills and budgets presented and promulgated by the Republican Governor and his Administration should find easy passage. But that is not the case. The Senate leadership and the House leadership seem to be working at crosspurposes. On a recent transportation bill, the Senate and House disagreed on who should pay for the road and bridge damages caused by the timber industry- the citizens across the State, through increased fuels and registration taxes, or the industry itself. And again, on a recent Bill regarding the expansion of State Medicaid insurance to assist low wage earners across the State, the Senate and the House were diametrically opposed. Some have suggested that the Senate is composed of pragmatists who work to get the job done, while the House consists of those kneejerk Republicans who automatically vote against anything promoted by the other party. They may be right but we see other possibilities, not the least of which involves a de facto single party system (supported by old wealth) creating the appearance of a representative government working hard to meet the needs of its constituents.

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

Twins On Their Bikes

“Democracy Egyptian Style” -by Bob Perry It was one year ago when Egypt had their first democratic election and elected Mohammed Morsi as President. Their first attempt at democracy has experienced a setback since in the short time in this experiment expectations of the people in Egypt have met failure. The economy is in shambles with tourism practically nonexistent. Morsi, as the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, made a fatal mistake in granting himself authority over all the government including any judicial oversight. Did he really think these actions were in any way democratic and would stand? With reported millions of demonstrators across the country demanding economic relief and new elections, the army exercised a coup and replaced Morsi with an interim president with an election to be held once again to elect a president. Like so many political candidates, Morsi declared he would not be a dictator but he lied and did the obvious. Egypt’s form of democracy, the army taking action and deposing an obvious dictator, may be a good thing to ensure that democracy will have a chance in time. The obvious support of the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi’s election and an Islamist regime by President Obama has shown his preference for rule has backfired. Remember Morsi showed his colors when he urged Egyptians to “nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred” of Jewish people with a desire to eradicate them. With a short time in office Morsi has shown a significant history of removing opposition to him. Sound familiar? In May the Obama administration issued a waiver on military funding to Egypt which sidestepped Congress’ instruction to conditional delivery of the 1.3 billion on progress with human rights and democracy. The funding may actually prove to be the key for the Egyptian army wanting to be on the side of promoting a real democracy and remaining friends of the US by taking action and deposing Morsi. This ’style of democracy’ of a military, not controlled by a country’s president, making sure democracy will be achieved could be a good thing. Of course, any good thing usually only lasts for a limited time. In this case lets hope for a good outcome even though there will be continual strife wherever certain groups want to control all others.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Don’t Get ‘Spoofed’ By Rogue Callers When caller ID first arrived on the scene it seemed like a godsend to many people: Now you could easily identify who was on the line and ignore unwanted calls, whether from telemarketers, an ex-boyfriend or an unfriendly collection agency. But as often happens, unscrupulous individuals soon began manipulating the technology to defraud people by pretending to be someone else. Their scheme is called “caller ID spoofing” and disturbingly, it’s perfectly legal in many cases. Here’s how caller ID spoofing works and what precautions you should take to avoid being victimized: For a very low cost, businesses and individuals can use widely available caller ID spoofing software to generate calls that alter the telephone number and/or name which appear on the recipient’s caller ID screen. Police, private investigators and collection agencies have used legal spoofing services for many years. Others who might have a legitimate reason to hide their identity when making a call include domestic violence victims and doctors returning patient calls who don’t wish to release their private telephone numbers. Beyond that, the lines of legality begin to blur. The Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009 prohibits anyone from transmitting misleading or inaccurate caller ID information with the intent to defraud, cause harm or wrongfully obtain anything of value. Violators can be penalized up to $10,000 for each infraction. Unfortunately, such penalties haven’t dissuaded many scammers. One common scam involves spoofers pretending to represent a bank, government agency, insurer, credit card company or other organization with which you do business. They count on you being reassured after recognizing the company’s name on your screen. Under the pretext of warning about an urgent situation (breached account, late payment, pending insurance claim, missed jury duty summons, etc.), the spoofer will try to coax you into revealing personal or account information, supposedly to verify their records. Often these are robocalls, where a recorded voice asks you to stay on the line to speak to a representative or call another number for more information. Do not. If you suspect the call might possibly be genuine, contact the company yourself at the toll-free number found on your card, account statement or the company’s website. You should never reveal your full Social Security number, mother’s maiden name, credit card number, passwords or other

-by Jason Alderman private information over the phone unless you initiated the call yourself. Someone possessing such information could use it to gain access to your existing accounts to withdraw or transfer money, raise credit limits or snoop around your recent activity, among other intrusions. ID thieves also can use your personal information to open new credit accounts (e.g., credit cards, mortgage or car loan), create a new identity or even obtain a job fraudulently. Often, you won’t even realize something’s wrong until a collection agency – or the IRS – starts hounding you

for unpaid bills or taxes. Another common caller ID spoof involves hacking into someone’s voice mail account. Many cellphone users never bother to set up passwords on their voice mailboxes. And, since many voicemail systems grant access to callers phoning from their own number, a hacker could easily spoof your number and gain access to your messages. Bottom line: You wouldn’t give your personal information to a stranger on the street. Take the same level of precaution with strangers on the phone – or online.

ummer entertaining is easy with simple, crowdpleasing recipes from light bites to sweet delights that require almost no time in the kitchen. Invite over a few of your closest friends, heat up the grill and set out your favorite wines for a truly memorable outdoor dinner party. Select simple recipes that can be prepared ahead of time and quickly seared on the grill once your guests have arrived. Everyone will enjoy the food and you’ll love that you’re not trapped in the kitchen. Prep, chop and marinate everything then store it all in containers. Continue the trend of simplicity by serving food-friendly wines, such as those from Las Rocas. Las Rocas, which literally means “the rocks” because of the rocky soil where the grapes are grown, produces an incredibly vibrant Garnacha and refreshing Rosé that pair wonderfully with these dishes. Make the occasion truly special by beginning the festivities at sundown to take advantage of the cool breezes and beautiful sunset. Line the tables with a row of small candles, hang sparkling white lights from the trees and put on your favorite music. Your guests may never want to leave. For more information, visit

Pan Seared Rib Eye with Balsamic Glaze and Crispy Salted Potato Wedges Serve with Las Rocas Garnacha, a vibrant and versatile red wine with rich dark berry flavors and aromas. Yield: 4 to 6 servings For Crispy Fingerling Potatoes 1 pound small Yukon gold potatoes cut into wedges Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon roughly chopped fresh rosemary leaves, plus a couple of sprigs For Steaks Kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 3/4-pound bone in rib-eye steaks, about 1 inch thick 1 large shallot, thinly sliced 1/2 cup aged balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons unsalted butter For potatoes: Place the potatoes in saucepan and cover with cold, salted water. Set over high heat and bring to boil. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes depending on size of potatoes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Pat potatoes dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set potatoes aside and begin steak. For steak: Sprinkle large cast-iron skillet with kosher or coarse salt; heat skillet over high heat for about 8 minutes, then add steaks. Sear until steaks are crusted brown, about 4 minutes; turn steaks. Sear to desired doneness or about 6 more minutes for medium rare. Transfer to cutting board and let rest while you make sauce. Wipe out pan and add shallot; cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Slowly add vinegar and 1 tablespoon of water and bring to a boil. Stir continuously until reduces and thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat, swirl in butter, and season with pepper to taste. Drizzle sauce over steaks just before serving. To finish potatoes: Heat olive oil in large skillet over high heat. When hot, add seasoned potatoes, cut side down, and rosemary. Cook until golden and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper to taste.

Red Wine and Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta Yield: 6 servings 1 orange 1 cup blackberries and or raspberries 1 vanilla bean, cut in half 3 cups Las Rocas Garnacha wine 2/3 cup sugar 1 cup whole milk 1 1/4-ounce packet unflavored powdered gelatin 2 cups whole Greek style yogurt Fresh mint sprigs for garnish Remove a wide, 2-inch-long strip of zest from orange with sharp paring knife. Peel and segment orange and toss with blackberries, cover and refrigerate. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean. Place seeds and pod in small saucepan. Add wine, 1/3 cup sugar and orange zest strip. Simmer over medium-low heat until reduced to 1 1/4 cups, about 35 minutes. Discard vanilla bean pod and zest strip. Cool completely. Set aside 1/4 cup for serving. Combine milk with remaining 1/3 cup sugar in medium saucepan. Sprinkle in gelatin and let stand, undisturbed, until gelatin softens, about 4 minutes. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until gelatin and sugar are just dissolved (do not boil); let cool. Whisk in 1 cup of wine reduction and yogurt until smooth. Pour into six 6-ounce ramekins or jars, cover and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours or overnight. If using ramekins, dip bottom of each ramekin in warm water to loosen. Invert each panna cotta onto a plate. If using jars, skip this step. Drizzle panna cottas with reserved wine reduction and garnish with oranges and berries and sprig of fresh mint.

Goat Cheese Crostini with Grilled Peaches, Serrano Ham and Marcona Almonds Serve with Las Rocas Rosé, a fruitforward seasonal wine with notes of raspberry and strawberry. Yield: 1 dozen crostini 12 slices French bread, sliced on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices Extra virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 12 thinly sliced pieces Serrano ham 2 ripe peaches, halved, pitted and sliced onto 12 thin wedges 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup) 1 tablespoon roughly chopped Marcona almonds Preheat grill. Brush each slice of bread on one side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill, oil-side down until lightly golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from grill and place a piece Serrano ham on each. Drizzle peaches with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Grill peaches until grill marks appear, turning once, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place warm grilled peaches on top of each crostini and sprinkle each with crumbled goat cheese and Marcona almonds. Drizzle them lightly with additional olive oil. Serve.

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Dealing With Dust AICR HealthTalk

-by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN American Institute for Cancer Research

(NAPSI)—The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology has some advice for the millions of Americans for whom “allergy season” never ends: Reducing the dust in your home can make a big difference. Most indoor environments, it says, actually trap airborne allergens, where they can pose a risk to respiratory health. If you suspect indoor allergies are causing your symptoms, see your doctor. You can limit your exposure. Tiny Particles = Big Problem House dust is present in even the cleanest homes. It’s stirred up whenever you vacuum, walk on a carpet or make the bed. In addition, forced-air heating systems tend to blow dust into the air. A Solution Fortunately, frequently washing your linens and cleaning air ducts can go a long way toward reducing the amount of allergens in the air. To help, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends that air-handler units be inspected at least annually and cleaned as needed. When hiring an HVAC inspection, maintenance and restoration contractor, be sure the company is a member of NADCA. Learn More: To find a certified air duct cleaner, visit or call 855-GO-NADCA.

Q: I’m overweight and I know that puts me at risk for lots of health problems. How much weight do I need to lose for my health? A: Maybe not as much as you think. But you’re right – excess body fat increases risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, some forms of arthritis and gout, and several forms of cancer. The burden of excess weight loads seems to increase risk of sleep apnea and some types of arthritis and to promote urinary incontinence in women. However, for virtually all of these, achieving at least a five-percent weight loss can make a medically significant difference, even if in some cases weight loss may not be able to make health problems, such as type 2 diabetes, completely disappear. For someone who weighs 250 pounds, he’ll start seeing benefits with a loss of less than 15 pounds; for someone who weighs 180 pounds, a loss of 10 pounds can make a difference. In most cases, health improves even more with a 10 to 15 percent weight loss, which might mean 15 to 40 pounds, depending on starting weight. For many of these health risks, at least for a few years, you continue to benefit from the weight loss, even if some weight is regained. However, whether it’s the effects of excess body fat promoting insulin resistance and inflammation, or the mechanical burden of supporting a large weight load, it makes sense that the goal needs to be more than just losing weight, but also keeping it off in order to retain the health improvements achieved. So don’t get frustrated by setting a weight loss target that might be unreachable without extreme measures. Instead, work one day at a time to establish a few changes in food choices, portions and exercise habits with the intent of finding ways to make them permanent parts of your lifestyle. Q: What’s the difference between sports drinks and energy drinks? My teenager drinks a lot of both, and he says he needs them because of sports. A: Sports drinks may have a place for teen athletes, but not energy drinks. Many teens may take energy drinks to give them an “edge” in sports, but the American Academy of Pediatrics warns that safe consumption levels of energy drinks have not been established for adolescents. Sports drinks provide fluid along with substances called electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium) that are lost in sweat. They provide carbohydrate in an amount and form that can help athletes who exercise intensely more than an hour, or in very intense short bursts (as in hockey). Sports drinks contain about two-thirds the calories of regular soft drinks. Energy drinks are completely different. They are a source of caffeine and other stimulants, and often sugar. Studies show that 100 to 200 milligrams (mg) of caffeine (about 1 to 2 cups of regular coffee) increase energy and alertness. Many 16-ounce cans of energy drinks provide caffeine in this range. But extra large portion sizes and additional stimulant ingredients may bring caffeine as high as 500 mg per can or bottle; and some energy drink users consume more than one can. Although relatively small amounts of caffeine taken shortly before sports or exercise can enhance and prolong ability to exercise, using caffeine to raise energy can end up worsening energy problems in the long run. When people consume more than 250 mg caffeine per day, they may experience headache, sleep difficulties or increased anxiety. Beyond 1000 mg they may have heart palpitations. Deaths from seizures or cardiac arrest are rare, but have been reported. Caffeine stays around longer than people realize, impairing nighttime sleep that leads to daytime sleepiness and low energy. It takes three to ten hours to clear even half a caffeine load from the body, and 15 to 35 hours to eliminate virtually all of it. And you can get a lot of sugar from the 15- to 24-ounce containers. Sugar-free versions are available, but energy drinks typically contain 200 to 300 calories, with over a quarter cup of sugar per 16-ounce can.

Breakfast Taco Bar


etting kids back to school each morning can be exhausting and feeding them a good, hot breakfast often gets put on the back burner. Start them out right with easy, wholesome meals full of the protein necessary to fuel their day. A protein-rich breakfast — one that includes lean ham or pork sausage — reduces daily hunger, increases daily fullness, improves morning blood sugar control and leads to less latter-day snacking, according to a recent study by the University of Missouri. That means teenage boys and girls who chronically skip breakfast have a new, tasty weapon in the fight against obesity. Studies show as many as 20 to 30 percent of adolescents in the United States skip breakfast, which is a habit associated with excess body weight. Keep breakfast well-balanced by packing it full of protein; using only egg whites; reducing fat intake with Johnsonville’s breakfast chicken sausage with 50 percent less fat; and rounding out the meal with whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Think you have no time for breakfast? Try recipes that can be prepared ahead of time, served as grab-and-go, or stored in the freezer and microwaved as needed. Use a slow cooker to prepare dishes before bedtime and your family will wake up to house filled with the delicious aromas of a freshly-prepared breakfast. For more great breakfast ideas, visit

Money Management 101

(NAPSI)—Teens are more optimistic about their financial future but may depend longer on their parents, according to a major new survey. Teens also expressed concern over paying for higher education. Among the Teens and Personal Finance Survey’s key findings, conducted by Junior Achievement USA® and The Allstate Foundation: • More than half of teens think students are borrowing too much to pay for college, yet only 9 percent report they are currently saving money for college. • Nearly 30 percent have not talked with their parents about paying for college. • Nearly one in three teens thinks he or she will be 25 to 27 years old before becoming financially independent. • Teens are unsure about their ability to budget (23 percent), use credit cards (20 percent) or invest money (34 percent). • The majority of teens (76 percent) still report the best time to learn about money management is in kindergarten through high school, but only 29 percent reported programs currently in place. • Of the 33 percent of teens who say they do not use a budget, 42 percent are “not interested” and more than a quarter (26 percent) think “budgets are for adults.” • More than one-third of teens are either unsure or think their parents do not talk with them enough about money and budgeting. “From our findings, we can infer that teens expect to live with their parents longer. It is interesting to see this shift in teens thinking they will remain financially dependent on their parents,” said Jack E. Kosakowski, president and chief executive officer of Junior Achievement USA. Since 2005, the organization, in partnership with The Allstate Foundation, has helped more than 1.2 million students set personal goals about money and make wise financial choices. The program, JA Economics for Success®, also empowers students to develop, plan and set goals to help protect themselves from unexpected financial pitfalls. According to Don Civgin, president and chief executive officer of Allstate Financial, there is an urgent need for parents and children to broach the subject. “Parents continue to be the No. 1 influence on teens when it comes to money,” he said, “so there is tremendous opportunity for family conversation.” To learn more, visit: as well as

he best time to make decisions regarding long-term care is well before it’s needed. An unexpected illness or injury may force you or a loved one into making hasty decisions. Long-term care is a set of services and supports for people who are unable to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs are self-care activities, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, eating, and bowel and bladder management. About 70 percent of people turning 65 can expect to need some kind of long-term care services as they age. Experts encourage everyone over age 50 to take the time, while you have it, to research options and make important choices. Long-term care planning means developing a personal strategy now for how things should be handled later when you or a loved one is in need of care. Important considerations include the following:

Staying In Charge An important part of long-term care planning is outlining how you would like things to be handled. Expressing preferences clearly about how any declines in ADLs should be handled, what financial resources are available, and who should provide needed care is a good way to retain control. All adults over age 18 should execute legal documents that appoint one or more individuals to make health care and financial decisions for them in the event they become unable to make decisions for themselves. Adults who lose the ability to make decisions before executing these documents must have the court system appoint someone to make decisions for them. An attorney can also prepare an advance care directive, which is a set of written instructions detailing what medical care you want or do not want.

Housing Those who would prefer to stay at home for as long as possible should make a plan to do so, and consider making modifications as needed. Home modifications are often intended to allow maximum

self-care, and to help avoid a fall. Avoiding a fall can help delay or avoid the need for long-term care. Typical modifications include widening doorways, adding wheelchair ramps, improving lighting, mounting stairway chair lifts, installing medical alert systems and adding handrails or safety grips. An important consideration for anyone planning to stay home is to ensure the bathroom can be used safely. Ideally, your residence should maximize your ability to continue performing ADLs, and help you avoid a fall.

Primary Care Maintaining a good relationship with a primary care physician is key. Regular check-ups can lead to early diagnosis of any physical, mental or emotional decline. Be honest and open about symptoms, daily habits or changes in appetite. Be sure to have the primary care physician review all medications. Ongoing medication management is an important part of staying healthy and avoiding a fall.

Family Care Unpaid family members are the most common source of long-term care help. But, they may not

be able to provide all the care you need, or be there every hour of the day. If you intend to rely on family members for long-term care services be sure to involve them in your long-term care planning. Make sure they are willing and able to be caregivers for you.

Paid Care As part of your long-term care plan, look into caregiving services in your area, including inhome care providers and elder daycare centers. Find out about elder shuttles, meals on wheels and other low-cost services offered in your community. Several types of housing come with support services for people who cannot fully take care of themselves due to aging and/or disability. 

Public housing is available for low-tomoderate income elderly and persons with disabilities.

Assisted living homes are group living settings that offer housing in addition to assistance with ADLs and other services, such as meals. Generally, they do not provide medical care.

Continuing care retirement communities provide a range of housing options, including independent living units, assisted living and nursing homes, all on the same campus.

Nursing facilities, or nursing homes, are the most service-intensive housing option, providing skilled nursing services and therapies as needed.

Take the time to familiarize yourself with the different types of facilities available in your area. Ask family and friends for any recommendations they may have and take advantage of information available on the Internet. Visit to find out more information about each type of facility and costs associated with long-term care. Your local Area Agency on Aging office also offers a list of resources available to the elderly in your area. Having your long-term care plan squared away and clear, so there are no misunderstandings or second-guessing, can be the greatest gift you can give to your loved ones, and yourself.

For Family Fun, Space Is The Place (NAPSI)—There’s good news for those looking for a vacation destination built around family fun, a touch of education and one-of-a-kind attractions. Just east of Orlando, Fla., Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is the only place on Earth where a family can tour launch areas, meet a real astronaut, see giant rockets, train in spaceflight simulators and view a rocket launch. Now it’s also the place to stand within an arm’s length of one of the most complex machines ever built by mankind, Space Shuttle Atlantis. Atlantis Comes Home Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex recently opened the new Space Shuttle AtlantisSM exhibit, which gives visitors a chance to get nose-tonose with the final shuttle orbiter to fly a NASA mission, Atlantis. The six-story, $100 million exhibit features stateof-the-art multimedia presentations and more than 60 interactive exhibits and simulators, along with an awe-inspiring, 360-degree view of Atlantis, elevated 30 feet off the ground and rotated at an angle with its payload bay doors open and its robotic arm extended. “As the home of human spaceflight, Kennedy Space Center launched and processed all 135 space shuttle missions from 1981 to 2011—including Space Shuttle Atlantis’ 33 missions— so having the orbiter here makes a lot of sense,” said Bill Moore, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center

Visitor Complex. “We’re thrilled to celebrate the opening of the new home of this iconic symbol of mankind’s ongoing exploration of space.” Visitors will have the opportunity to use interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators to “be the astronaut”—bringing the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program, the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station to life. Guests can also participate in the Shuttle Launch Experience, which simulates vertically launching into space aboard a space shuttle while being immersed in the sights, sounds and feelings of a real shuttle launch.

Celebrating Past and Future Spaceflight While Atlantis is the centerpiece, the new attraction also shines the spotlight on the astounding achievements made over the course of the 30-year Space Shuttle Program and honors the thousands of people who made it a success. The new exhibit also outlines how the shuttle program paved the way for NASA’s future manned spaceflight programs. For more information, visit: or call 877-313-2610

Adopting A Pet: How To Choose Your Best Match (NAPSI)—Adopting a pet, whether it’s a giant dog or tiny kitten, is a big decision that requires a lifelong commitment—but when you find the right fit, adopting a pet also provides a life full of love. For example, when Mayling Zhong and Chester Leung visited a PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend event, they knew there were many factors they needed to consider before adopting a pet. “We knew that our small apartment needed a small dog,” said Leung. The two met several dogs before stopping at Smokey. Just 4 months old, the terrierminiature pinscher mix was a little excitable in his crate when he arrived, as many puppies are. As the day went on, however, Smokey calmed down and seemed smart and eager to please. His fun-loving personality (and small size) convinced Zhong to adopt him-she knew he would be the right fit for her and Leung. Within minutes, the couple was filling out the adoption paperwork and they were ready to welcome the new pup into their home.

Pet Points To Ponder If you’re considering adoption, here are a few things to keep in mind: 1. Space: Do you live in an apartment or a house? Do you have a big backyard? Different types of dogs and cats require different amounts of exercise and space. Zhong and Leung knew they needed to take into consideration the size of their home as part of their decision to adopt. 2. Time: Decide how much time you can dedicate to caring for a dog or cat. Cats can be more independent and of-

ten require less time for daily exercise. 3. Children: Make sure you are aware of the pet’s temperament. A shelter worker may be able to say how a pet gets along with children. You might even consider creating a special area in your home just for your pet, so he has a safe place to go if children are running around the house. 4. Resources: Ensure that you have the appropriate resources to care for a pet. Creating a budget for things like food and veterinary care is a good place to start. Adoption is a commitment for the pet’s entire life. One easy way to find adoptable pets and shelters is by searching PetSmart Charities’ adoptable pet locator. You can enter criteria such as age, breed and size of the pet you want. Most pets available through adoption are already spayed or neutered, vaccinated and licensed, and are often microchipped for a very affordable adoption fee.

Immigrants And The Selective Service System (NAPSI)—While turning 18 is often time for a celebration, for a young man living in the United States, it also brings certain responsibilities. For example, when a young man turns 18, he is required by law to register with the Selective Service System. It’s important to note that this applies to all male U.S. citizens and male legal and undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. who are 18 through 25. In general, if a male noncitizen is residing in the U.S. before his 26th birthday, he must register with the Selective Service. Very Few Exceptions The few noncitizens who are in the U.S. and do not have to register include those here on student or visitor visas, and men who are part of a diplomatic or trade mission and their families. This requirement applies to dual nationals—citizens of both the U.S. and another country—as well because they are still U.S. nationals. It is important to note that the Selective Service does not collect any information that would indicate whether or not a person is here legally and a Social Security number is not needed to register. Possible Penalties The penalties for failing to register can be serious and far reaching. A man who fails to register may, if prosecuted and convicted, face a fine of

up to $250,000 and/or a prison term of up to five years. Even if not convicted in court, a man who fails to register with Selective Service before turning age 26 may find that some doors are closed to him forever. For instance: • Those who should register and don’t are excluded from federal student loan or grant programs, including Pell Grants, College Work-Study, Guaranteed Student/PLUS Loans and National Direct Student Loans. • Those who want to become citizens are required to register with the Selective Service if they first arrived in the U.S. before their 26th birthday.

• The Workforce Investment Act, which is the federal job training act, is only open to those men who register with Selective Service. • A man must be registered to be eligible for jobs in the executive branch of the federal government and the U.S. Postal Service. • Some states require proof of registration to get a driver’s license. Registration is easy. Go to any U.S. post office and pick up a Selective Service registration card or register online at For additional questions, call (888) 655-1825 toll free.

New Technology Puts Comfort Under Your Control (NAPSI)--New technology is making it easier to have a home that is comfortable in any season. This is good news for homeowners since many older homes in the U.S. still have cooling and heating systems that leave parts of a house either unbearably hot or uncomfortably cold. Choosing the right system is key since this allows homeowners to cool the rooms they use the most while saving energy in less-used areas of the house. Industry experts refer to this as “zone control.” Fortunately, new systems from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating employ advanced technology that can precisely adjust each room’s temperature to the homeowner’s preference. “With these systems, I can be in control of the air my kids are breathing,” said design expert Cortney Novogratz. “Also, the zoning capabilities allow me to set areas of my house at different temperatures. With seven kids, being able to set the thermostat so that different areas are at various temperatures is a huge benefit. My kids’ rooms can be set at a temperature where they’re

comfortable, while the rest of the house might be set at another temperature.” This “zone-control” feature helps homeowners reduce energy costs. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 50 percent of the average home’s energy bill can be linked directly to cooling and heating costs, amounting to approximately $1,100 per year. Controlling your comfort on a room-by-room basis gives you more control over your energy budget. Multiple Benefits In addition, homeowners can also receive a tax credit of 10 percent, or up to $300, for qualifying Mitsubishi Electric systems through the American device. To learn more, visit the website at Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. These systems benefit the environ- ment as well. They are made of mostly recyclable parts and use an environmentally friendly refrigerant that won’t pollute the environment. Control From A Distance Another feature that makes this a cool way to add comfort to your home is the fact that the system can be controlled anytime, anywhere through a smartphone or other Internet-enabled

or the more than 25 million Americans living with diabetes, food choices are critical to maintaining their health. Chef Sam Talbot, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 12 years old, understands those challenges. But with his new cookbook he proves that diabetics don’t have to sacrifice flavor in order to follow a healthy eating plan. Talbot earned national recognition as the runner-up in Season 2 of Bravo’s hit TV show “Top Chef.” In his new book, “The Sweet Life: Diabetes without Boundaries,” he shares how diabetes has affected — but has not compromised — his life and career, and offers 75 fresh, all-natural recipes that can be enjoyed by both diabetics and non-diabetics.

Cooking to Manage Diabetes Doctors recommend that people with diabetes follow a healthy, well balanced diet that includes plenty of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables and carbohydrates that rank lower on the glycemic index (GI). (See sidebar for more on the glycemic index.) “Pears are one of my favorite fruits to use in recipes,” says Talbot. “They are a low GI fruit, they’re high in fiber, and the flavor of a ripe pear is just out of this world. They are incredibly versatile in sweet and savory recipes in all types of world cuisines. They can be part of any meal of the day.” The two recipes here are from Talbot’s book, and showcase the fresh, sweet flavor of pears. For more information, visit, and for additional pear recipes visit

The Glycemic Index The glycemic index (GI) rates carbohydrates on a scale of 1 to 100 based on how rapidly a food item raises blood sugar levels after eating. Foods that rank high on the glycemic index are digested rapidly, which produces marked fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin levels. Foods with a low glycemic index are digested slowly and raise blood sugar and insulin levels gradually.

One medium pear provides 24 percent of your day’s fiber, and 10 percent of your day’s vitamin C — for only 100 calories.

There are ten different varieties of USA Pears, each with its own color, flavor and texture.

More than 80 percent of the fresh pears grown in the U.S. are from the Pacific Northwest states of Washington and Oregon. USA Pears are in season from early fall through early summer.

Yogurt with Pear and Coconut

Check the Neck for Ripeness Ripeness is the key to enjoying pears at their sweetest and juiciest. To judge a pear’s ripeness, USA Pear growers advise you to “check the neck.” Press the neck, or stem end, of the pear. If it yields to gentle pressure, it’s ripe, sweet and juicy. If it feels firm, simply leave the pear at room temperature to ripen within a few days. Don’t refrigerate your pears unless you want to slow their ripening.

et parents do everything they can to ensure their dogs and cats are around as long as possible. Pets, much like humans, need a healthy diet and plenty of exercise to help them live a long and happy life.

Good nutrition is key There are many factors involved when it comes to choosing a pet food for your dog or cat. Keep in mind if your pets aren’t digesting the ingredients properly, nutrition is not being absorbed. Get maximum nutrition from every bite by purchasing a natural, high quality food with a digestive health support system, such as Holistic Select Natural Pet Food. Ingredients to look for include: 

Probiotics — or good bacteria — help keep your pet’s immune system healthy. Holistic Select contains live probiotics that are added to the food after it has been cooked and cooled. This process assures maximum survival of the probiotics, so that your pet reaps the full benefits of their food.

Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of good bacteria, like probiotics, in your pet’s digestive tract.

Fiber plays an important role in human digestive health, and it also plays an integral role in your pet’s digestive health. Look for foods with fiber-rich ingredients, such as oatmeal, flaxseed, pumpkin and papaya to promote digestive regularity.

Digestive enzymes help your pet’s body break down proteins, fiber and carbohydrates. This ensures your pet is getting the nutrients from their food, while reducing stress on their organs. This is especially crucial for aging pets.

Get pets moving every day Dogs and cats used to have to work for a living. Many were bred to be mousers, hunters, herders or protectors. Most pets today have a much more sedentary lifestyle. They spend their days lying around, waiting for their human companions to come home and are rewarded for their patience with a big bowl of food. However, regular exercise supports healthy circulation of both nutrients and waste and is essential for a pet to have a happy and long life. Experts recommend cat owners plan a daily play session. Toys that mimic the actions of their natural prey — birds, mice or bugs — should get them up and moving. Dogs need to be walked for 20 to 30 minutes each day, while larger breeds often need much more. At your next veterinarian visit, ask if your pooch is healthy enough for an exercise program and ask for recommendations based on breed. Adequate exercise is an important step toward good health. It’s also a great way to reduce such unwanted behaviors as chewing, digging, scratching or whining. To learn more about the importance of digestive health for your pet, visit

Paint Like a ProEasy Exterior and Interior Painting Tips (Family Features) The task of home painting projects may seem daunting, but by following a few helpful steps you can give your home a fresh, clean appearance and incorporate some of your favorite new home décor trends. “Whether your painting projects call for sprucing up your indoor space or freshening up outdoor trim, a little advance planning, sweat equity and the right tools can go a long way in ensuring a professional looking result,” said Carmen De La Paz, designer and former host of HGTV’s Hammer Heads. De La Paz offers these tips to help you paint like a pro. Start with the Right Tools Whether working on interior or exterior projects, be sure to use the right tools – especially the appropriate tape – to ensure a professional looking result. For indoor projects, make sure you read the label to find a tape that is appropriate For more tips on painting and inspiring DIY projects, visit for the surface you are working on and that has EdgeLock technology to ensure sharp, clean lines. For exterior projects, ScotchBlue has an Exterior Painter’s Tape specifically designed for exterior paint jobs and is resistant to sun, wind and moisture.

How to Prepare Your Home’s Outdoor Spacefor Summer Fun

Tips for Exquisite Exteriors With its exposure to the elements and various surface types, exterior painting has its list of challenges. Here are a few tips to make outdoor painting a breeze: • Always use the appropriate nap, or thickness of a roller, for the surface you are painting. Some surfaces, like stucco, tend to have a rougher texture, so be sure to use a thick nap roller to help pull paint in and out of crevices. This will save time and frustration. • Remember to pick paint designed for the surface being painted. For example, choose masonry or stucco paint for outdoor projects, or paint that is compatible with wood or metal when painting other exterior surfaces. Remember, outdoor elements will influence how well paint sticks to a surface; some surfaces will even reject the wrong paint. You can avoid this by using the right paint from the start. • Be sure to “back prime” any newly installed woodwork. This means you should prime and seal the whole board before installing it. This will protect the backboard from moisture and prevent bloating and cracking once new woodwork is applied. Ideas for Impressive Interiors When approaching interior projects, use these tips to make them flawless: • When painting big surfaces, such as a wall, use a roller and paint in “X” and “W” patterns for even distribution of paint. This helps you avoid “lap marks” where paint builds up thicker in some areas due to overlapping. • When using a brush, load your brush and start by painting strokes in the middle of the paint area – working your way to the edges. The goal is to lightly whisk the paint on. The brush has more paint on it than you think, so let the brush do the work. • If your painting job is ongoing, don’t wash the brushes. Instead, put them back in their bags and keep in the freezer overnight. Then, pull the brushes out about 15 minutes before you plan to use them again and you’re ready to go. This saves time and water for brushes that are already in great working condition. You’ll be amazed by how beautiful your home can be when you take the time to tackle those painting projects and do it right. Incorporating these tips into your painting routine will get you painting like a pro in no time.

(StatePoint) In the warmer months your home’s outdoor space is just as important as the rooms inside, especially if your family spends a lot of time outside. Be it your yard, garden, deck or patio, there are steps you can take to prep these spaces for a fun and safe season. Pest Prevention Mosquitos aren’t just a pesky deterrent from outdoor living; they can carry and transmit dangerous viruses, such as West Nile. Make eating, entertaining and enjoying your yard safer and more pleasant by preemptively striking back. Rather than applying sprays and lotions each time you go outside, consider a natural alternative. For example, Terminix ALLCLEAR, safe for kids and pets, provides a line of backyard misters and mosquito repellers that are proven effective. In fact, the Terminex ALLCLEAR Sidekick has been shown to reduce mosquito bites by over 92 percent when used as directed. These systems are also sleekly designed to match your outdoor décor. You can also limit your skin exposure with long sleeves and pants. Pick breathable fabrics in light colors to prevent overheating. Lawn Care Mowing, watering and hedging can be time consuming, preventing you from enjoying your time outside. And knowing what your plants and lawn need to stay looking beautiful can be a complex science. If outsourcing your lawn care sounds expensive, consider this: the retail price you pay for quality equipment and products won’t come cheap. An expert can help you save both time and money by customizing a lawn care plan based on your climate, soil condition, grass type and lawn usage to meet the needs of your home. An expert can also survey your trees and shrubs to inspect for pests. Fire Safety Nothing beats an outdoor barbecue or roasting marshmallows around a fire with friends and family. But both involve safety risks. Reduce these risks by using lighter fluid sparingly and positioning your grill or fire pit several feet away from any structure. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby during barbecuing and marshmallow roasting nights. In the event you do experience a fire, there are some dos and don’ts to protect your home. If the siding of your home is damaged by smoke, don’t attempt to clean it yourself. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue. Don’t touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate walls and woodwork, causing additional damage. Corrosive by-products can cause irreversible etching in as few as 72 hours so it’s important to call for professional help as soon as possible. Look for a specialist, such as ServiceMaster Clean, a market leader in fire damage restoration and cleaning.

Help Your Child Learn To Love Reading (NAPSI)—When children realize that reading is an adventure, a whole universe of possibilities blossoms for them. These ideas may help you inspire your children to develop a lifelong friendship with books. • Read the news. Children need to know there’s more to the news than a 30-second sound bite. Newspapers, magazines and online articles can give kids in-depth details to satisfy their curiosity. Read an article together and help your children with difficult words or abstract concepts. • Read aloud with your children. In young children, it nurtures an interest in language, words and communication. For older kids, reading together can be a fun way to develop reading skills and create a basis for discussions. • Collect books and digital news. Encourage your children to create their own treasure trove of books and online resources. Look for books at yard sales, in the book section at bar-

How To Pack Properly (NAPSI)—There are two kinds of travelers: overpackers and underpackers. For whichever you are, travel enthusiast, style expert and QVC program host Lisa Robertson—who mastered the art of how to pack after years of balancing her love of fashion with the struggles of packing it all-shares her most valuable tips for successful trips. • Pack for activities you know you’ll be doing. You can add later as space allows. • To pack smaller, you’ll need to rewear things, so pick what you love. Your taste and comfort zones don’t change with location. • Shoes take up more room than anything else in your suitcase, so take one comfortable pair for sightseeing all day, one pair of heels, and a pair of sneakers if you’ll be working out. • A good rule for handbags is one to carry and one that packs flat in the more. • A packed suitcase is like a map: Once you unfold it, it never really goes back the same way. If you start out with a suitcase you can barely close, you’ll return with an additional bag. Either plan for that or leave room. For more from Robertson, visit

gain stores, at the grocery store—wherever you can find them. Create a list of websites and online resources that spark your child’s imagination. • Turn vocabulary from a grind to a giggle by creating word games. Compile a word list or ask your children’s teacher for one and make daily or weekly vocabulary games. • Encourage children to write original stories and illustrate them with their own drawings. • Visit the free interactive, reading motivational program online at www. Students choose their own books from more than 8,500 titles, take short quizzes and redeem points for prizes. The site was created by Sylvan Learning, the leading provider of tutoring to students of all ages, grades and skill levels. A good time to make the commit-

ment to read every day is March 1, 2013, the National Education Association’s official Read Across America day—but any day is a good one to read. Learn more at (800) 31-SUCCESS,,, or
