that caused four individuals to succumb to heat exhaustion. At least one fireman was taken to the hospital......Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority has approved the Bradford City Water Authority as the recipient of a $5.2 million H2O PA Act Grant for the rehabilitation of the Gilbert Dam. Both the Gilbert Dam and the Marilla Dam (prior to its rehabilitation a few years ago) had been on the DEPs Unsafe Dam List “for the better part of the preceding decade, maybe more,” according to Kim Benjamin, Bradford City Water Authority Executive Director. The grant money, in conjunction with an additional $1.3 million to be acquired either through a bond or PENNVEST funding, will be used to rectify deficiencies in the dam and bring it up to code. This would enable the dam to continue to be used as a back-up water supply during drought conditions for the entire Bradford water system. Benjamin said the project will take a minimum of two years since its still uncertain when the project would begin and who would be contracted to carry it out. One thing that has been decided is that the construction entrance for the project will be located off West Washington Street, directly across from the Marilla Dam “because Gilbert Lane is a residential neighborhood and the intent is to minimize any disturbance to those living in the area.”.........The 13th Kids and Cancer Benefit Dice Run, benefiting children with cancer, will be held Saturday, July 17. Proceeds from the event will be given to various medical facilities and individuals families.

Been Friends For Years

Bradford Journal Photo Nick Shay 14 on the left and Jordan Bond 10 on the right squint up at us from Barcroft Pool at Callahan Park, July 11th. It’s fun getting a picture for the paper but it’s hard looking into the sun from the northwest corner of the pool. Their mothers are friends so they’ve been friends for years. And when they swim, they do it together.

Photos included on the pages of this week’s edition include one of a student, 10-year-old Hailey Raffele who was happily advanced to a Yellow Belt due to her attention and hard work in Chinese Karate. Many more photos were taken at the Barcroft pool and Callahan Park which have also found their way to our pages, and a couple more reflect a winner in the ongoing Man vs. Food contest at Monte’s Restaurant. The balance of the photos taken are found in the photo gallery associated with the online edition of this issue of the Bradford Journal…… This weekend’s Summer Daze in Bradford, July 16th & 17th will include the Case Collector event, the motorcycle dice run event, summer store sales, activities on Mechanic Street on Saturday afternoon, and around town Restaurant Cuisine…….The ongoing proposal to make Kennedy Street one-way between Main and Boylston Streets and add more parking meters was presented again to the Bradford City Councilmen, July 13th during their regular meeting. The council members, apparently considering the subject a hot issue, made no comment for or against the idea, and playing their cards close to the vest, knowing that by doing nothing or saying nothing they couldn’t make a mistake, decided to “pass the idea around between themselves for a little while longer.”.…….It was recently announced that Philadelphia and many other cities would use stimulus funds to fight obesity and cigarette smoking. While the goal is commendable, the use of stimulus funds to accomplish these ends is questionable. They tell us they want to pour hundreds of $millions into ghetto areas to replace “bad food” in the stores there with “good food” to make people healthier. But we think there assumption is questionable that by making healthy foods more available that people will choose to buy them over snack over snack foods and cigarettes. It reminds us of the maximum, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” More importantly, we should consider the economics of their proposal. We believe that using “stimulus funds” in this way will detract from the existing ghetto economy, and here’s the reason: The plan substitutes high profit, low spoilage items, such as cigarettes and snack foods, with low profit, high spoilage items such as fruits and vegetables. How can such a trade-off stimulate their economy. While it’s true that spending the Department of Agriculture Stimulus funds on the reconstruction of stores in the ghettos, made necessary by this project, will stimulate the economy in the short term, the seemingly benevolent project of placing more healthy foods on the shelves may wreak havoc on the long term profitably of the stores.


One Grouping At Pool

-by Vince Vicere Buy AmericanEmploy Our People! Unemployment insurance benefits for 1.3 million American workers have recently expired. An estimated fifty-three thousand of the remaining four million people drawing benefits will lose their benefits weekly and with the nations bleak job picture, there is no hope for individuals to find gainful employment in the short term. Many of them have spent their savings, drawn down their retirement funds, and are on the verge of defaulting on their house ands auto loans. What’s more, without any income, they’ll lose the health care insurance because they won’t be able to make the monthly COBRA payment. Congress is holding up the extension or expanding benefits for the unemployed whose benefits have recently expired. Their excuse for not helping Main Street is that the national debt is exploding and that they have to draw the line on spending. Perhaps they think the average American has forgotten the Wall Street bailouts, TARP, and tax cuts to the upper two percent. Well they haven’t! Congress should remember the injustice of it all with $billions of incentives going to big oil when they don’t pay a dime in royalties to the US treasury for drilling on government reserves, $billions to Wall Street that paid unreasonable bonuses on the taxpayers dime after the bailout, and sending our jobs to China so the previous Administration and Congress could borrow money to finance Cheney’s three trillion dollar war. And now that Main street is in dire straits, to add insult to injury, my party of no is turning their backs on the working man. Shame! If Congress wants to cut the debt, cut off the incentives to big oil that nets $billions in annual profits. Pull our military out of countries such as Okinawa, Germany, France, Italy and especially the Middle East countries to whom we send a billion dollars a day for protective cover to get oil. Countries that can currently protect themselves or can afford to do so should support such efforts through the use of their own treasuries. The average voter may have a short memory about most things but not about these longtime ongoing drains on our economy. The Republican Party can no longer depend upon our vote. They fooled us once but they will not fool us again. It’s simple, putting Americans back to work, not stopping up unemployment benefits, is the only solution for them.

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCE Online Banking: What You Should Know (NAPSI)-Only 15 years ago, the world of personal money management changed forever with the introduction of online banking. Today, with high-speed Internet access common and mobile phones even more so, people not only appreciate but demand the ability to bank “anytime, anywhere.” While it’s possible to simply check your balance online or transfer money--among the first two services offered--today, most banks offer a wider variety of services. Here are a few that may save you time and money and help the environment: Budget: If you have trouble making ends meet each month--or if you want to get a better handle on what’s coming in and where it’s going--try online budgeting. Many banks also offer the option to track your spending automatically with a tool such as Wells Fargo’s My Spending Report. Save: It’s now possible to set up an automatic savings plan online to help meet a specific goal like a down payment, or a long-term objective like retirement.

Spend: Online bill-pay services enable you to pay bills quickly, cheaply and securely. And newer services such as personto-person payments let you easily transfer money, making it more convenient to split the check at lunch or to pay your babysitter. Go: New mobile banking services allow you to do all your banking on the go, and the newest--text banking, offered by some banks--don’t even require that you sign up online first! The technological innovations that have revolutionized the way people manage their personal finances have changed small-business banking as well. Jennifer Hogan owns a successful women’s accessories company called Toss De-

signs ( ) and once spent hours each month at the bank sending wire transfers and reconciling accounts. “I thought the technology that allowed me to bank over the phone was amazing, but now we do everything online with Wells Fargo, which is even more amazing--I save at least 10 hours a week,” she said. The ability to manage invoicing and receivables online can speed up payment and maximize cash flow. Whether you’re an individual or own a small business, if you haven’t tried online banking in a while, it may be time to take another look. Today’s online banking is faster, cheaper, greener and more secure than ever before.

Leader Vickie Johnson conducted the Thursday, July 8, afternoon meeting of TOPS Pa. 16 at the First church of the Nazarene. There were 25 weigh-ins with a loss of 18 1/2 pounds. Loser of the week was Marilyn Gross. Loser in waiting and officer of the week is Vickie Johnson. Members recieveing charm awards were: Pat Wester for 10 lb. loss, Pat Foote for 8 week no gain, and Cindy Sayers for 20 lb. loss. We heard reports on many members who are sick or in distress. Many members are on vacation or ill. Jean McAdams’ fashion tip was: Capriis come in many different lengths, so try them on to get the length you like. Betty Austin had a helpful hint: Use a sturdy old dinner fork for weeding the flower bed. The tines get under weeds better than most tools. Bev. Hannon’s thought for the day: “Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it,and then move on.” Trudie Luke did a program on the health benifits of some spices. Alzhimers responds to Tumeric; Garlic fights brain cancer; and several more. She also reported that spices only last 6 to 12 months to be effective,and should be stored in glass jars.

Bradford Journal Photo Friends Taylor Brautigam 12, at the left, and John Kriner 13 pose for us at Barcroft Pool, July 11th. Taylor tells us that they always swim together when and if John shows up. Whereupon John places the blame for his absence and tardiness directly where it belonged, on his parents. “I can only show up after I’ve done my chores- no wine before its time.” What a kid!

What Is The Value Of My Home? Some of you may be asking yourself, “Does my insurance coverage fit my needs?” “Do I have enough coverage to replace my home in the event of a serious loss?” “What affects my premium?” These questions create a need for you to regularly review your homeowners insurance and to consider other questions such as: “Have you recently remodeled or improved your home?” “Has the rate of inflation risen since your last appraisal?” “What influences the building construction costs in your area?” As you consider these issues, it is important to understand that real estate values measure the market value or selling price for a home. For insurance purposes, it is important to estimate the current replacement cost which is the amount needed to hire a contractor to repair the damage or to rebuild the home to its pre-loss condition. Dwelling replacement costs used by insurance companies do not include the value of the land. Market conditions in your area may impact the amount it will cost to rebuild your home if you experience a loss. Building contractors or professional replacement cost appraisers are a good source for obtaining an estimated replacement cost for your home. Estimates from these sources should reflect your home’s specific features and details. If you are unable to obtain a detailed estimate from these sources, I can help provide an estimate. Once you know the estimated cost to replace your home, you can decide how much insurance coverage fits your needs. You should also consider other policy endorsements such as back up of sewer and drain coverage, or additional coverage for personal articles with high values such as jewelry, fine arts, and collectibles.You may want to consider higher personal liability coverage or the need for flood insurance which is provided by a separate policy. In addition to the amount of coverage you decide to purchase, your premium is impacted by optional endorsements you select, your claim history, the amount of your deductible, company longevity and multiple policy discounts such as home/ auto. Finally, remember to periodically review your insurance coverage with your agent. That will ensure you have the coverage you need.

Power Up Your Pasta Dishes (NAPSI)-Pasta, a well-loved comfort food, is quick, easy to cook and tastes good. The trick to creating pasta dishes with great flavor that are still healthy is to keep portions small and incorporate other nutrient-packed ingredients. While we all have our go-to pasta recipes, there are a number of simple tips and swap-outs that can help make these dishes better for you. The next time you’re creating a pasta dish, try these ideas: • Use whole-wheat pasta--whole grains are an important component of a healthy diet • Incorporate lean protein--add grilled chicken, fish or turkey to increase the dish’s protein content • Pile on the fruits and veggies--they add a great texture to pasta and give the dish a nutritional boost • Pair pasta with broth or vegetable-based sauces--these sauces tend to be lower in saturated fat than those that are cream-based This recipe for Chicken Fajita Pasta with Hass Avocado works to incorporate all of these tips. The inclusion of avocados in this dish offers an unexpected twist and increases the meal’s nutritional benefits. In fact, one ounce of avocado has 50 calories and contributes “good fats” and nearly 20 beneficial vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to one’s diet. It’s the avocado’s creamy texture and delicious flavor, however, that really helps marry the Latin flavors of this dish with the traditionally Italian pasta-highlighting this fruit’s versatility. Chicken Fajita Pasta with Hass Avocado Serves: 4

Ingredients 1 (16-oz.) package whole-wheat fettuccini 4 tsp. canola oil, divided 2 tsp. ground cumin, divided

1 green bell pepper, membrane and seeds removed, and thinly sliced 2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, divided

3 (6-oz.) boneless and skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced

1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced

2 limes, juiced

1 red bell pepper, membrane and seeds removed, 1 Tbsp. chopped oregano and thinly sliced 1/3 cup chopped cilantro

Fresh Fruit Kebabs Full Of Flavor, Not Fat (NAPSI)-Delicious desserts are the grand finale of any meal. For a light, flavorful dessert that is also guilt-free, try Honey-Citrus-Olive Oil Fruit Kebabs. Seasonal fruits such as cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple and strawberries make this one sweet treat you can feel good about eating. To assemble the kebabs, place fresh fruit on bamboo skewers, then drizzle with a glaze of honey, lemon juice, orange liqueur and extra virgin olive oil. Though more commonly used on vegetables and pastas, olive oil is versatile, full of flavor and can be used with a variety of foods, including fruit. Sprinkle kebabs with chopped mint leaves and powdered sugar. Serve alone or pair with lemon sorbet and cold-press coffee or iced tea for a more sophisticated take on this tasty dessert. With fresh, light flavors, fruit kebabs are a great way to satisfy sweet cravings.

Tell Us Swimming Is Awesome & Best Sport

Assistant Professor of Family Medicine Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine

Swimmer’s Ear Need Not Spoil Reader’s Summer Question: Every summer at least one of my children gets swimmer’s ear. This invariably comes on in the middle of the night or on a holiday, and so we end up with a long, pricey emergency room visit, where we just get ear drops that take care of things in a few days. Can you tell me more about swimmer’s ear? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Answer: As you well know, swimmer’s ear is a very common summer ailment, especially for children, but it can occur all year round -- anytime your children go swimming or get water in their ears from bathing. Typically it occurs in just one ear, but it can afflict both at the same time. Swimmer’s ear is most commonly caused by the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which causes an infection in the external ear canal, but it also can be caused by fungi or viruses. This kind of ear canal infection is not the same as the middle ear infection that often occurs in children. The moist warm ear canal is a great place for bacteria from “dirty” water to grow.The ear canal also can become contaminated by dirty cotton swabs (not fresh out of the package), fingernails, bobby pins or any other foreign object stuck into ear canals to clear out ear wax or scratch an itch. Usually the symptoms include severe, acute pain in the affected ear, sometimes accompanied by itching and drainage. By the time these symptoms come on, however, the infection typically has been smoldering for several days. Generally, once the infection sets in, you will need prescription medication to make the problem go away. If it is not too late at night or a holiday, your family doctor can easily take care of this problem. There are things you can do to prevent swimmer’s ear. Make sure your children avoid sticking objects into their ear canals, even cotton swabs. They should never scratch the insides of their ears with their fingers or any other foreign objects. If your children have chronically itchy ear canals, go to the doctor and get a diagnosis and treatment to avoid frequent ear canal scratching. When swimming or bathing, you can use disinfected ear plugs or a bathing cap to keep water out of your children’s ears. Make sure they get all of the water out after a swim –- a feat normally achieved by simply tilting the head and hopping once or twice -- but never on a wet, slippery surface! Also, after swimming or bathing, you can safely dry out your children’s ear canals with a hair dryer set on the lowest setting. Just a few seconds of the warm, dry air can significantly reduce the likelihood of getting an infection. There are over-the-counter ear drops that can be used after swimming or bathing to help remove trapped water and prevent infections, too. These are usually vinegar- or alcohol-based drops. Although they can pre-

Q: What are some good snack choices before I do a workout or sports event? A: First priority, make sure you’re getting fluid. If your physical activity is coming several hours after a meal (for example, end of the afternoon), a good snack will provide energy that allows you to put more into your workout or sport and get more out of it. The right snack can help prevent low blood sugar, settle the stomach and avoid hunger. If you find that you do best with a substantial snack because of the length or vigorous nature of your activity, it’s best to snack one or two hours ahead of time to avoid stomach discomfort during exercise; if all you need is a light snack, then half an hour to an hour is fine. Aim for choices relatively low in fat, since fat leaves the stomach rather slowly, potentially causing stomach discomfort during intense activity. The snack should be mostly carbohydrate, though modest amounts of lean protein may enhance endurance. Some sports nutrition research suggests that by choosing carbohydrates that raise blood sugar more slowly – such as whole grains and fruits – body fat may be more easily mobilized to fuel activity, which helps to avoid that feeling of being totally out of energy when blood sugar dips too low. Some specific ideas that meet all these criteria: oatmeal (preferably not the pre-sweetened type, so add your own sugar if you want a little) topped with raisins, berries or banana slices and milk; yogurt (soymilk or regular) with fruit; whole-wheat toast or English muffin

with a little turkey or peanut butter; string cheese and a piece of fruit; whole-wheat mini-pita bread with hummus; some fatfree refried beans and salsa rolled up in a whole-wheat tortilla; or a yogurt-fruit smoothie. Q: Over the winter I started including bean-based dishes in meals more often, but what can I do with beans in warm weather beyond endless bowls of three-bean salad? A: Dried beans – kidney, black, navy, garbanzo and many more – offer great nutrition at a low price and are flexible enough to include in a wide variety of dishes. Perhaps during cold weather you enjoyed them in casseroles and hearty soups and chili, but beans are great additions to warm weather meals, too. First, expand your vision of bean-containing salads. Combine beans with tomatoes, peppers and other ingredients as you create salads flavored in Greek (with olives and lemon-based dressing), Mexican or Cajun style, for example. Light summer soups that highlight seasonal produce can become a main dish with the addition of beans. Black beans and garbanzo beans can be blenderized with flavors of your choice (I like to go heavy on garlic) to make hummus-like dips for vegetables and sandwich spreads. Enjoy beans in Indian-style curries, in Mexicanflavored burritos and all-American pasta

vent an infection, they are not to be used to treat an existing infection. Keep your family doctor’s number on hand, but these preventive methods may be your best bet for a more enjoyable summer. (Family Medicine® is a weekly column. Gen-

salads. In short, there are just as many great ways to enjoy beans in warm weather as in cooler months. You can find healthful recipes at the AICR Test Kitchen.

GEMINI - (May 21 - June 20) A car boot sale can reap some nice spare loot and there can also be good news on the cost of a home premium renewal. CANCER - (June 21 - July 22) A very significant Solar Eclipse in your sign, and a super link to Mars, can do your prospects wonders in the second half of the year. LEO - (July 23, - Aug. 22) If you need to check out mortgage products or write a business plan, things ebb in your direction. However, it’s essential that you don’t skimp on your research.

SAGITTARIUS - (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) Venus begins to soften some of the harshness that Mars has inflicted on your ambitions. Although you shouldn’t stop flagging up what you can do, you still need to be able to get along with others.
