Photos for this issue come primarily from the Tri-County Swim & Dive Championships held in Port Allegany July 20th and July 24th. Pictures not found on the pages of this issue can, as always, be found in the photo gallery associated with our on-line edition of the Bradford Journal. Also found in this issue is a submitted photo taken showing this year’s newly elected officers of Bradford’s American Legion Post 108……..We met a local fellow, Kevin Caldwell who gave us his permission to use his name and tell our readers what he thinks of County Politicians. He tells us the way they operate is based on lining their own pockets and doing whatever it takes to stay in office with hardly a care given to the people of the County. Many may feel the same way about politicians in general but they don’t have the courage to lend their own names to such proclamations. Perhaps we have another Thoreau or Clemens in our midst!........Charlie’s Cycle Center will be holding their 5th Annual Charlie’s Cycle Center Dice Run, Saturday, July 31st. It will begin, rain or shine at their 66 Minard Run Road, Bradford location at 1 PM (Registration 11:30 am to 12:45 PM). The ride will travel 100 miles through small towns and beautiful forests of McKean County and end at Byllye Lanes Bowling Center for the benefit party. Thos who do not ride can join the benefit at 5PM at Byllye Lanes with a donation of $10 to benefit the Care for Children organization………This last week, Mary Van Marter made a special effort to give us a private tour of the McKean County Historical Society’s Old Jail Museum in Smethport. Displays covered wars, the oil industry, the glass industry, trains, special exhibits, for example the George Schaming miniature carnival rides, and much more including displays for children that are even now in the making, and a room full of looms where weaving is taught. The tour also included the history of the jail in bits and pieces along with a tour of the dungeon…….. Post Office boxes in the Bradford USPS building that had normally been available twenty-four hours a day are now inaccessible after 7PM and all day Sunday. The local Post Master explained that the lobby hours were shortened because people had been sleeping there and also urinating on the floor. While we mentioned that the limitation in open hours was an inconvenience, explained that the newly limited hours for the lobby represented a reduction of services, and that a camera could be installed to dissuade persons from using the lobby in vile manners, the Post Master was unmoved. According to him, there will be no change in the limitation of lobby hours- so much for customer service at USPS Bradford!
Sister And Brother

It’s been over a decade since the Pennsylvania Legislature passed the deregulation of public utilities. The highly touted deregulation was meant to improve competition, giving consumers a choice of supplier and lower costs. Good PR, but the fact is, since deregulation, there hasn’t been one reduction in rates. In fact, rates have reached the cap placed to eliminate the possibility of price gouging during the deregulation start-up process, and the caps come off this year. Recent published reports have stated that the average consumer will see their monthly electric bill increase by roughly thirty percent. And the politicos in Harrisburg are afraid to intercede for the consumer saying that if the cap, which saved them $millions and $million over the past many years, isn’t removed, that power companies will move out of the state or sell their wholesale power to other markets over the grid. Pennsylvania, when compared to other states, never had a reputation for supplying low cost power, but the rates were considered reasonable. Not only will the removal of caps and the subsequent, almost certain cataclysmic rise in rates damage household budgets, it will also damage institutional and business budgets. And as sure as day follows night we can expect property tax increases and more Pennsylvania businesses heading offshore toward the perceived safety of China. The local daily paper recently brought their readership public relations double talk from a Penelec Electric spokesperson attempting to legitimize the increases. The company says that there has been no “rate” increase, that prices will simply be tied to the spot wholesale commodity price of the open market for electric power (which just happen to be enormously higher than that which people are presently paying). While it’s good to know that paying more isn’t a rate increase, a spade is still a spade and the increase will be just as damaging to us all. Local Tea Baggers should take notice to be careful what they wish for when they cry for less government regulation, because in this case, they’re going to get exactly what they want, in the form of deregulation. As they notice their reserves being transferred monthly from their bank accounts into the hands of the utilities companies, perhaps they’ll become more sensitive to how various government regulations protect the public (including the tea baggers) from scurrilous money-grubbing tactics of the utilities.

AREA & REGIONAL NEWS Receives 2010 National Trust Main St. Accreditation The Bradford Main Street program has been designated an accredited National Main Street Program for meeting the commercial district revitalization performance standards set by the National Trust Main Street Center. Each year, the National Trust and its coordinating program partners announce the list of accredited Main Street programs that have built strong revitalization organizations that have demonstrated their ability to follow the Main Street methodology. “We congratulate this year’s nationally accredited Main Street programs for meeting our established performance standards,” says Doug Loescher, director of the National Trust Main Street Center, “Accredited Main Street programs are meeting the challenges of the recession head on and are successfully using a focused, comprehensive, revitalization strategy to keep their communities vibrant and sustainable.” The organization’s performance is annually evaluated by the Pennsylvania Downtown Center in Harrisburg, which works in partnership with the National Trust Main Street Center to identify the local programs that meet 10 performance standards. These standards set the benchmark for measuring an individual Main Street Four-Point Approach to commercial district revitalization. Evaluation criteria determines the communities that are building comprehensive and sustainable revitali-
zation efforts and include standards such as developing a mission, fostering strong public-private partnerships, securing an operating budget, tracking economic progress and preserving historic buildings.

Kohler Properties (25 Main Street), Kelly’s Main Street Restaurant, The Grocery Stretcher and the Tin Ceiling Gift Shoppe. Façade improvement projects for this summer include The Fran Charles Shop, The Bridal Boutique and Tortugas Restaurant. The Main Street program also coordinates downtown events and promotions, and develops economic retention and restructuring plans for the Main Street area. Two Main Street businesses that it directly works with include The Main Street Mercantile and the Main Street Movie House.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Bite Into A Better Burger
(NAPSI)-There’s good news for barbecue lovers: It can be easy to make healthful choices at your next outdoor soiree. These simple substitutions are so delicious, your guests are likely to leave your next backyard party more than satisfied. Here are a few tips for remaking your next barbecue:
• Before heading to the grocery store, plan a menu with better-for-you alternatives to traditional grilling fare. For example, substitute fresh, seasonal grilled vegetables such as corn, peppers or carrots for potato chips. • Once you’ve fired up the grill, serve veggie burgers as a better-for-you alternative to meat. Get your meatless barbecue started with this Alpine Burger recipe featuring MorningStar Farms Grillers Original Veggie Burgers. These burgers contain 57 percent less fat than regular ground beef (which has 14g total fat per 64g serving; Grillers Original burgers contain 6g fun food ideas, visit: fat per 64g serving). It’s not a burger--it’s of fruit. better. Learn More :For more grilling recipes and www.MorningStarFarms.com Alpine Burger Prep Time: 25 minutes Time to Table: 25 minutes Servings: 1 ¾ cup sweet onions, sliced ½ cup fresh mushrooms, sliced ¼ teaspoon bottled minced garlic 1 MorningStar Farms Grillers Original Burger 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard or Dijon mustard 1 slice multigrain or whole wheat bread, toasted 1/3 cup baby arugula 1 tablespoon Gruyère cheese or Swiss cheese, shredded In large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook onions, covered, over medium-low heat for 16 to 20 minutes or until onions are very tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms and garlic. Cook over medium heat, covered, for 4 to 6 minutes or until onions begin to brown and mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, cook veggie burger according to package directions. Spread mustard on one side of bread slice. Top with arugula (if desired). Place burger on arugula. Spoon onion mixture over burger. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately. • Finish your barbecue on a sweet note that uses the grill. Grilling pineapple and serving it over sherbet for dessert can be an easy way to increase your daily intake
Simply Satisfying Salads (NAPSI)-When you haven’t got the time or inclination to cook a meal, salads can be a natural. Often, the cooking process is little more than boiling water for pasta or grain or for blanching a vegetable. Bulking up salads with fresh vegetables, fruits, flavorful cheeses or a handful of nuts can make for delicious versatility and satisfy the appetite without overindulging. Confetti Pasta Salad: Cook 8 ounces tricolor pasta until al dente, drain and toss while it’s warm with ½ cup pine nuts, 1½ cups shredded Jarlsberg cheese and 2 cups each celery root (cut matchstick style) and chopped green (or yellow) pepper. Vinaigrette: Combine 6.5-ounce jar of marinated artichoke hearts with ¼ cup red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon country mustard and 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Toss with pasta. Serves 4-6. Creamy BLT Salad: Cook 8 ounces fusilli pasta until al dente, drain and toss while it’s warm with ¼ pound chopped cooked bacon, 2 cups cherry tomato halves, 1 packed cup fresh chopped basil or spinach, ½ cup chopped walnuts and 1 4-ounce log fresh goat cheese, crumbled (such as Woolwich Dairy Chevrai). Cool Green Bean Salad: Blanch and immediately cool ½ pound skinny string beans. Chop and combine with cooked couscous (enough to serve 4), 1 large can albacore tuna (drained), ½ cup slivered almonds, ¼ cup chopped marinated sundried tomatoes and 2 cups (small cubed) Jarlsberg. Vinaigrette: Whisk together ½ cup fresh lemon juice with ½ cup olive oil, ½ teaspoon mustard and, to taste, sea salt and fresh-ground black pepper.Tip:You can also use cooked, cool potatoes instead of couscous. Blueberry Penne Pasta: Cook 8 ounces penne pasta until al dente, drain and
toss while it’s warm with ½ cup coarsely chopped pecans or almonds, 1 packed cup baby arugula, 1½ cups blueberries and ¼ cup golden raisins (or chopped dried cherries). Toss with Cool Green Bean vinaigrette, adding a touch of honey to it. Top with shavings of Gran Maestre Manchego, a Spanish sheep’s milk cheese. Learn More: A mild part-skim-milk cheese rich in calcium and protein, Jarlsberg has a buttery, rich texture with mild flavor. For more recipes, tips and entertaining ideas, visit www.norseland.com

ralysis or weakness in one side of your face -- symptoms of Bell’s palsy include difficulty closing one eye, drooling, reduced ability to taste food, pain in or behind your ear and increased sensitivity to sound. These symptoms are very similar to
Bell’s Palsy Usually Clears Up With Time Question: I have had Bell’s palsy for the past 38 days, and there hasn’t been any improvement. I have taken steroid injections, B12 vitamin capsules and antibiotics. I have also tried alternative therapies like Reiki healing. So far, nothing works. I’m considering acupuncture now. Do you have any suggestions? Will I make a full recovery, and how long could it take? Answer: Bells’ palsy is a sudden onset of paralysis on one side of the face -and luckily, it is temporary. The condition occurs when the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of the face becomes inflamed or infected. While the exact cause of Bell’s palsy is not known, some evidence suggests that the facial nerve becomes infected with the herpes simplex I virus, which also causes cold sores. Other viruses, like herpes zoster, which causes shingle and chicken pox, may also be to blame. Bell’s palsy can affect anyone of any age, but it most commonly strikes people between the ages of 15 and 45, and it rarely occurs after the age of 60. It is a fairly common problem, occurring in about 30 out of 100,000 people annually. Bell’s palsy seems to afflict men and women -- and all ethnic groups -- at the same rate. There are just a few known factors that seem to increase the risk of Bell’s palsy. You are more likely to get it while pregnant, especially in the third trimester, and within a week of giving birth. Diabetes and upper respiratory illnesses also seem to increase the risk. Most people do make a full recovery within one or two months, but it can take up to six months. Also, there can be some permanent residual weakness and minor loss of function in the affected nerve. As you’ve noticed, various treatments have met with mixed results. If Bell’s palsy is diagnosed within 72 hours of onset, an antiviral medication is often prescribed. If the diagnosis comes later than that, antiviral medications may not do much good. High doses of steroids can also help to reduce the inflammation in the nerve, speed up recovery and lessen any pain. Similarly, other treatments may ease symptoms to some extent –- however, time is the most effective cure. One thing you must do in the meantime is to protect your eye from drying out, since the eyelid may not close properly. You will want to carry around eye drops, and you may even need to wear an eye patch to protect your eye from the elements. Aside from the obvious –- sudden pa-
those of a stroke. If you experience sudden paralysis in one side of your face again –- especially if you also have sudden vision problems, memory loss or trouble speaking -- go to the emergency department immediately.

Q: As long as the activities I do all day add up to at least 30 minutes, does that mean I’m getting enough physical activity? A: The recommendation to get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity daily (and to aim for 60 minutes or more daily) to reduce cancer risk and promote overall health can include shorter bits of activity scattered throughout your day, beyond your normal daily activities. The activity that research has linked to better health counts in blocks of ten minutes or more and involves a “moderate” pace that raises your heart rate or breathing slightly. Getting off public transportation one stop early and walking briskly or ten minutes of vacuuming at an invigorating pace are good examples. Smaller bits of activity are still definitely worth including as much as you can throughout the day and do add up to make a difference in the total calories you burn. Some evidence suggests that the total of these activities, such as walking up one flight of stairs at work or at home, moving around while you cook, and walking from a far space of the parking lot into work or shops may be part of what makes the difference between people who gradually gain weight each year and those who maintain their weight. Most people find that these small bits of physical activity don’t necessarily provide the energizing, stress-reduction benefits of moving for at least ten minutes at a time. So I urge you to work at creating time for some longer activity, too. Q: Is cottage cheese a good source of calcium? A: Cottage cheese is usually not as concentrated in calcium as milk, yogurt and
PDF Version Of The Bradford Journal Emailed To You Each Week Is Only
other cheeses that are produced differently. Cottage cheese averages about 60 to 100 milligrams (mg) of calcium in a halfcup serving, which you’ll see listed on food labels as 6 to 10 percent of Daily Value. That’s substantially less than the 300 mg in a cup of skim milk, which provides about the same number of calories as one halfcup of cottage cheese. However, some companies add extra milk protein (whey) or supplemental calcium to their cottage cheese, which generally doubles the calcium content. All cottage cheese is a good source of protein and other nutrients, but if you’re counting on it for calcium, look for the highest-calcium, low-fat or fat-free versions and take at least a three-fourths cup portion.

CHILDREN & PARENTING
What’s Your Communication Style? Ask a teen and she’s likely to tell you that one of her biggest complaints is not being listened to by her parents. Ask this teen’s parents and they’re likely to share the same complaint – not being listened to. Teens and parents often don’t hear what the other one is saying. To communicate effectively with your teen, take a look at your communication style. Are you willing to see your teen as someone with her own beliefs and her own point of view? Do you really want to hear what she has to say? Do you take the time to listen when your teen talks? Does your teen feel that she can express her feelings, even if they differ from yours? Can you appreciate that your teen can think for herself and not always agree with your opinion? Do you encourage your teen to work towards a solution to her problem? All of these questions demonstrate your willingness to understand your teen and her perception of what’s occurring in her life. Communication is far more than taking turns while talking. Unfortunately, very little listening is done when you are preparing in your mind what to say next. Just how good of a listener are you? Answer the following questions. Pat yourself
on the back for all the actions you are doing well and make a conscious effort to improve your weaknesses. • Do you listen to your teen without disagreeing with that she has to say, or without making her feel she’s wrong? • Do you know your teen’s best friends by name, and can you ask intelligent questions about them? • Do you show empathy when your teen talks to you about rejection; and don’t simply discard this hurt with a statement like, “She’s not good for you anyways, you have other friends.” • When your teen asks you questions, do you give an answer; instead of asking your teen to wait until a more convenient time to talk? • Do you say, “I don’t know,” and look for the missing information? • When your teen is upset, do you provide sympathy and postpone constructive criticism until she has calmed down and is willing to hear what you have to say? • Do you apologize to your teen when you are wrong and do you thank your teen when she helps you? • Do you try your best not to interrupt your teen when she is talking even when you get frustrated with her struggle to find the right words?
• Some people talk in circles or loops. Are you patient while your teen makes her point? Keep in mind that everyone is entitled to her own opinion. Your teen’s
opinion is as real to her as yours is to you. When I talk with people, I like to clearly state when a comment is my opinion, as opposed to a fact. This can provide an opportunity for
municate with your teen, don’t patronize or talk down to her. Few things irritate teens more than the lack of respect from adults. This is Yes, you are the a great way to shut parent; but if you the door to commureally want to com- nicating with your teen. the listener to then state her opinion or agree with mine. This also clearly separates facts from opinions.
