Three Generations Along Main For Parade

Makes A Big Splash

Bradford Journal Photo

Bradford Journal Photo From the left, Janet Zurat, her granddaughter Kendall Case 5, and Kendall’s mom, Kelly Case sit waiting for the Big 30 parade to begin August 4th. They tell us they’re “Parade Girls” and that they love the parades. And we know they are, they were there forty minutes before the parade began. Kendall says she’s waiting for the “zoom-zoom” cars (Shriners mini-cars) and she’s waiting for the candy. (See photo gallery)

During the Barcroft Swim Team end of the season party held July 30, this young swimmer let’s go and has some fun, flying off the diving board at Barcroft Pool at Bradford’s Callahan Park. The splash was enormous! The team ended the season well with a good showing in the TriCounty Swim and Dive Competition held in Port Allegany. (See photo gallery)

the North Kendall Park Revitalization Committee to help clean up and restore the park. New playground equipment has been purchased and is currently being set up for the kids. The North Kendall Park Revitalization Committee is still seeking donations and area commitment to help with the cost of new equipment and to keep the park safe and clean for kids. For more information check out the North Kendall Park facebook page or contact the First Wesleyan Church of Bradford at 814-368-7865. This event is free and open to the public.

Sequestration in law refers to seizure of property. Last August Congress kicked the can down the road by not reaching a deficit-reduction agreement but agreed to a sequestration agreement. Congress is faced with automatic spending cuts totaling 1.2 trillion if a spending reduction agreement is not reached by the end of this year. The seizure of property in this case could be our national sovereignty. The spending cuts are to come from defense and non-defense as a 50/50 split. Along with kicking the can down the road, Congress effectively shot itself in the foot resulting in the inability to move. The automatic and indiscriminate spending cuts were designed to be so severely damaging that there would be no choice but to reach a deficit-reduction agreement. Congress must act to avoid the devastating impacts of this! The defense budget is on course to realize a $500,000,000,000.00 (that’s 500 billion with a ?). It has been analyzed and the reduction would result in the Army being reduced to its lowest level since 1940; the Navy would be reduced to its lowest level since 1915; the Air Force would be reduced to its lowest level ever. Just how “dumb” are the collective bodies of Congress? Note that only a few are truly “running” things anyway. Is there the political will to get this done? Certainly the Republicans are not interested in getting anything done with the hopes of getting Governor Romney (Continued on page 5 )

BHS Class of 1937 Holds 75th Year Reunion

by Grant Nichols

Most of the photos in this week’s paper were taken during a couple of last Saturday’s Big 30 events. First we covered the hour-long parade from Davis Street to the High School. We began our coverage in the Best Western parking lot and followed the parade halfway down West Washington Street. Along the way we discovered that the children we talked to were there to see the Shriner’s mini-cars (zoom, zoom cars to them), and collect candy thrown from the floats. Next we stopped during the Big 30 Game following the halftime ceremonies to photograph some of the fans sitting on the grassy hills and around the track at Parkway Field. In all, we took approximately 250 photos that can be found in the photo gallery associated with this issue. Only 13 found their way into the paper. In addition, we attended the 75th year reunion of the Bradford High School class of 1937 where we took the class picture found in this issue. And finally, to round out this week’s photos, we have included a couple from the Barcroft swim team’s end of the year party. Other photos of the event can be found in the photo gallery……..We were first introduced to Hyman Goodman, who passed away last week, when he arrived at my home in the early nineties to investigate me as a candidate for Union Lodge No. 334, Free & Accepted Masons. As I remember, he asked me a few questions, told a story or two, and claimed (casually, tongue in cheek) that his interest in Masonry was, most probably, due to his very distant Scottish background. Over the next 10 years, throughout his eighties we saw him in the Lodge, over dinner, and at his home where I came to know him as a “gentleman and a scholar”. He was always ready and willing to instruct and give guidancehe was a calming spirit, the character in Brother Joseph Forte Newton’s discourse entitled, “When is a Man a Mason?” < > and we are fortunate to have known him…….. This year’s McKean County Fair will take place from August 11th through 18th. To obtain a schedule for all events go to < > The $8.00 admission includes exhibits, many shows & rides……..With the surplus of #2 corn being made available by the U.S. government subsidies to mega farms, there should be no shortage even though the crop be reduced by 50%. It’s interesting though, that such a shortage is big oil’s excuse for bidding up the price of gasoline across the country.

Bradford Journal Photo Local members of the Bradford High School class of 1937, now in their nineties, met at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Foster Brook on July 31st to celebrate their 75th year reunion. Those in attendance were happy to meet, reminisce, and exchange accounts of their present-day lives over a light lunch and a 75th year cake, especially prepared for the event. At the reunion, (l-r) are Paul Monjar 94, Bill “Vogan” McCloskey 92, Dave Downs 62 next to his dad, Morgan Downs 92, Eva Iverson Rutherford 93, Michael Casolo 89, and his wife Margaret “Peg” Casolo 93. Those from Bradford included Eva, Paul, and Bill. Peg and her husband Mike are from Ridgeway, while Morgan and his son David are from Lime Lake, NY. Grant Nichols, representing the Bradford Journal, was also in attendance. After 75 years, this group, a sampling of the “greatest generation” is remarkable in its tenacity for continuing to celebrate their longtime friendships as few classes do today. (See photo gallery)

What Healthcare Reform Means To You

-by Jason Alderman

Much was made of the size and complexity of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act when President Obama signed it into law in 2010. But now that the Supreme Court has upheld much of the act’s constitutionality, it’s a good time to review key provisions that have already gone live and to plot out what’s expected to happen in the next two years. Changes already in place include: • Children under 19 cannot be denied coverage because of preexisting conditions. • Adult children may remain on parents’ medical plan until they turn 26. • Lifetime insurance maximum payouts were eliminated. In addition, annual coverage limits are being phased out. Effective September 23, 2012, the annual limit increases to $2 million. • All new plans now must provide certain preventive services for free, such as mammograms, immunizations and colonoscopies. • People who’ve been refused insurance because of preexisting conditions may now be eligible for coverage through a “high-risk pool” program. Go to https:// for information and to apply online. • Medicare Part D participants who reach

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “Sequestration” -by Bob Perry (Continued from page 2) elected, while the Democrats still refuse to produce a budget from the Senate to reveal just how bad the crisis is and a proposed direction. Is there any wonder that the opinion of Congress is between 7 and 9 %? Surly they keep exhibiting that they do not know what they are doing - incompetent! The primary responsibility of the Federal Government is to defend this great nation and if sequestration reduces our armed forces to the levels I have mentioned, we most likely be attacked and the parties responsible for putting us in such a position must be charged with treason; posthumously in some cases. Would you want to be a member of Congress at this time?

the infamous doughnut hole now receive a 50 percent discount on brand-name prescription drugs – 14 percent on generics. (These discounts will gradually increase until 2020 when the doughnut hole will disappear.) Many core features of the Affordable Care Act won’t take full effect until 2014 and details are still being finalized, but here are highlights of what’s expected to happen between now and then: • By August 1, 2012, insurance companies that didn’t spend at least 85 percent of 2011 premium dollars for large group plans (over 50 employees) on medical care must refund the difference, through refund checks or discounted future premiums (80 percent for individual or small group plans). • By October 1, 2012, plans must begin adopting rules for the secure electronic exchange of health information – this will reduce paperwork, costs and medical errors. • By January 1, 2013, new federal funding will be in place to state Medicaid programs that choose to cover preventive services to patients at little or no cost. • By October 1, 2013, states will receive two additional years of funding to continue coverage for children not eligible for Medicaid.

Effective January 1, 2014, most key provisions will be in place. For example: • Individuals and those whose employers don’t offer health insurance will be able to buy it directly from state-based Affordable Insurance Exchanges, which will offer a choice of health plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. • Most who can afford basic health coverage will be required to obtain it or pay a fee to offset the costs of caring for uninsured Americans. • Americans earning less than 133 percent of the poverty level will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid. • Refundable tax credits will be available to those earning between 100 and 400 percent of the poverty level to help pay for affordable insurance. They also may qualify for reduced copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. • Annual coverage dollar amount limits will be prohibited. • Adults will no longer be refused coverage due to preexisting conditions. • Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge higher rates to individuals and small groups due to gender or health status. These are only a few of the many healthcare changes we’ll see as a result of the Affordable Care Act. To learn more, please visit

OBITUARIES After leaving the Army, he returned to Bradford and continued working with Goodman Brothers. He later owned and operated Smethport Salvage Co., and was in charge of demolishing the Barbour Street bridge in the 1960s. He was a lead demolition blaster during the construction of the Kinzua Dam. After a brief retirement at the age of 65, he returned to the workforce as an independent high velocity explosive engineer for Pennzoil, where he designed and executed explosive charges used to cap oil wells. He retired at age 82-and-a-half.

He also served as a deputy sheriff and a constable in McKean County. He was an avid sportsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, target shooting and the outdoors. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge No. 334, the Coudersport Consistory and the Zem Zem Shriners for more than 60 years. Surviving are his three children, Judith Goodman of Washington, D.C, Arthur (Lori) Goodman of Bradford and Betty (Paul) Goodman-Klein of Pittsburgh; five grandchildren; one great-grandson; and many nieces and nephew. In addition to his

parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife Hilda; his four brothers, Robert, Harry, Isadore and Henry Goodman; and two sisters, Betty Goodman Kaufman and Helen Goodman Kaufman. He was an incredible man with strong family values. He was a powerfully strong man with a truly gentle soul. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He lived his life to the fullest and often shared one of his favorite quotations, “Youth is not a time

of life, it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of red cheeks, red lips and supple knees. It is a temper of the will, the quality of the imagination, the vigor of the emotions — It is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means the temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, an appetite of adventure over a life of ease. Nobody ever grew old by living a number of years — people grow old by deserting their ideals.” (Author unknown)

Ghosts of Bradford -by Suzey Frontino

“Whisper In The Dark” The following story takes place in a business building in Bradford PA. This is the account of a delivery person from a local restaurant. Her name and the exact location of the event have been changed to provide anonymity. Winter is always a busy time for local restaurants who delivery for lunch. The cold and snow here threatens travelers on a daily basis. Therefore it is not uncommon for people to choose delivery over going out for lunch. On this particular day, the roads were very slick and the wind blew in fluffy snowflakes that resembled large cotton balls. The restaurant where Carrie was working had been overloaded with deliveries since 10:30 am. A big order had come in for one of the nearby office build-

ings so Carrie headed out into the cold. She delivered to this building quite often, but it had always given her this unnatural sense of dread. The elevators were in the oldest part of the building and were the kind that shake and make that haunting moaning sound. Carrie usually took the stairs, but on this day she was in a hurry due to the overly busy lunch hour. Despite the rickety ride to the top, the assent was not all that bad. She quickly delivered the orders and headed back towards the elevators. Halfway down the hall she heard footsteps behind her. Thinking maybe she had forgotten something, she spun around to greet the person, but there was no one there. She instantly became overwhelmed with terror and ran for the elevator doors. In a panic she pounded on the buttons until the doors finally opened. Once inside, she did the same until the doors closed. Her heart was pounding in her chest as she tried to calm herself with deep breaths. Carrie watched intently while the floor indicator wound down, wishing it would move faster. She wanted to get out of this place as quickly as she possibly could. “Floor two, okay I’m almost there,” she said to herself. The elevator slowed to a stop, but the door did not open. She frantically started hitting the button to open the door, but

nothing happened. Suddenly the light went out. Carrie was frozen in fear. The air felt suddenly chilled and then she felt a someone’s breath on her left ear. Then, out of the pitch black silence she heard a whisper “I’m cold”. Almost immediately the lights came back on and the elevator doors opened. Carrie sprinted from the building, falling and cutting her shin on the way out. From that day forward whenever an order came in for that business, Carrie would pass it on to someone else. To this day she cannot be alone in the dark and still wears a scar on her shin as a constant reminder of her chilling experience. Do you have a haunting tale to tell? If so please email the details to: It may just be my next week’s story!

Q: Since potatoes supply vitamin C and other nutrients, are potato chips really so bad for you? A: It’s true that potatoes and potato chips contain vitamin C, fiber and potassium, but here’s the difference: chips are concentrated sources of calories and sodium. A potato can supply nearly 20 to 50 percent of recommended amounts of potassium (a mineral that seems to counterbalance some of the blood pressure raising effects of sodium), as well as vitamin C and fiber. Potato chips also offer some of these nutritional benefits, but you’d have to eat several hundred more calories worth of chips to get the same levels of nutrients. And chips made from rehydrated potato flakes (chips sold in cans, for example) contain less vitamin C than others. For potatoes and chips, portion and preparation hold the key to smart choices. A one-ounce serving of potato chips – about 15 chips – typically contains a little over 150 calories with one to three grams of saturated fat. (Within the average adult’s recommended daily 15-gram maximum, depending on other food choices.) In comparison, a small baked potato about two inches wide supplies about the same number of calories, but with no saturated fat; and it provide more hunger-satisfying bulk.

Keep in mind though, if topped with a couple pats of butter and some regular sour cream, you’ll make that small baked potato higher in calories and saturated fat than the ounce of potato chips. Potato chips also pose the disadvantage of high sodium content. Bottom line: if you’re craving potato chips, savor a small amount occasionally. Turn to small potatoes with flavorings low in calories and sodium as the savvy way to get their nutritional benefits. Q: If I switch my summertime treat from ice cream to sorbet, will that help with weight control or be more nutritious? A: A half-cup of ice cream, which is the standard serving size listed on labels, usually contains 130 to 200 calories, but richer, high-fat types may contain up to 300 calories. Sorbet is a no-fat, non-dairy frozen dessert made with fruit purée or juice, sugar (or corn syrup or both), flavorings and a bit of pectin or other thickener. Calories are typically 110 to 140 in that half-cup serving. So it’s substantially lower in calories than rich ice cream, but not necessarily a lower-calorie alternative to lighter versions of ice cream. Each halfcup serving contains 5 to 9 teaspoons of sugar, which includes both the natural sugar in fruit and added sugar and high frucNeed Fresh Cage-free Organic Eggs?

On-The-Go Sun Protection (NAPSI)—You can give sunburn the brush-off in a delightful new way. That’s because you can now brush on your sun protection, so you don’t have to worry about it messing up your makeup, getting in your eyes or making your hands greasy. You need both UVA and UVB protection every day, no matter the weather or the season. You can get that at any time from a mineral-based powder sunscreen with SPF 30. Sweat and water resistant, it protects against broad-spectrum rays with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, while flower oils and extracts from green tea, safflower, chamomile and honeysuckle soothe and replenish skin. The sunscreen offers on-the-go invisible protection for the whole family, making it ideal for all your everyday activities—tennis, golf, walking, cycling and more. You can take it everywhere for nearly effortless sun protection whenever you need it. Contend no more with messy, greasy lotions, sticks and sprays.

tose corn syrup. Even when it’s made with berries or other fruits high in nutrients like vitamin C, sorbet is not necessarily a good source of those nutrients. Bottom line: The single biggest way to reduce the impact of frozen desserts on your weight is portion control. Sorbet is a refreshing treat, but for nutrition impact, top a small portion of whatever you choose with a half-cup of unsweetened fruit.You can also make a major impact by switching from ice cream as a nightly necessity to a weekly treat.

Tips On Making That Back-To-College Move (NAPSI)—As the new academic year approaches, college students everywhere will start preparing for their trip back to school. Whether you’re a freshman making the journey into a dorm for the first time or a graduating senior with an apartment, here are some tips to help ensure a smooth, easy and affordable move from the experts at Penske Truck Rental: • Select the Truck That Fits Your Needs. Most college students choose the 12- or 16-foot truck for moving into a college dorm or efficiency apartment. • Reserve Now. Fall is peak moving time for students and families, so it’s best to reserve early. You should reserve your rental truck and order any moving accessories at least two weeks in advance. At Penske, a reservation guarantees that a truck will be available. • Using Accessories Can Make a Difference. Boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, moving blankets and hand trucks are essential moving tools. Look to pack electronic items in their original cartons, and reinforce the bottoms of all boxes with extra tape for support. • Pack it Right. Load the heaviest items on the truck first. And to avoid injury, always bend your knees and lift with your legs, never with your back. Better yet, get a friend to help with any heavy lifting. • Driver Safety and Security. To ensure a smooth moving day, pick up your truck a day early and practice driving it. Trucks are taller, wider, heavier and require more stopping distance than cars. When traveling, park in well-lit areas and padlock the

rear door. In the unlikely event of a breakdown, Penske offers around- the-clock emergency roadside assistance every day. • Buddy Up. Sharing the ride with a friend can help to defer some of your truck rental costs and provide some extra help with your boxes. • Use Discounts. When attempting to defray moving costs, every little bit helps. Look for discounts that may be available

through various memberships. For example, Penske Truck Rental is the exclusive truck rental partner of AAA and offers AAA members a discount. • Make Sure Things Are in Easy Reach. Finally, before you leave, create a travel bag for moving day to keep important paperwork, credit cards, identification, clothes, drinks and snacks close at hand. For additional moving tips, visit:

On Track For Success (NAPSI)—If you’re looking for a profession that’s growing in demand, consider professional coaching. There are currently almost 50,000 professional coaches worldwide and—as the demand grows— that number continues to increase. According to a recent ICF Global Coaching Study by the International Coach Federation (ICF), there’s a diverse distribution of coaches across the globe, with areas of rapid expansion and growth potential. The yearlong study, which covered 117 countries in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America, found that the total worldwide revenue generated by coaching nears $2 billion. Why is the need for coaches growing? People always seek ways to maximize their personal and professional potential, but in tough economic times, the need to succeed can be even more acute. “Achieving an unprecedented level of response, this wide-reaching industry study reveals the global scale of the profession of coaching as well as amazing growth in the

number of practicing coaches,” said Janet M. Harvey, a master certified coach and global president of ICF, a leading global organization for coaches. In general, coaches who responded to the study viewed their prospects over the next year in a positive light. Almost six in 10 coaches said they experienced an increase in clients and 55 percent reported an increase in revenues. Earning credentials remains an important step in gaining clients and is reflected in earning potential. On average, credentialed coaches earn 41 percent more per year ($65,318) than do coaches who are not ($46,399). ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches.

This Autumn’s Designer Must-Haves For Less (NAPSI)—When the weather forecast predicts cooler temperatures, the fashion forecast features lots of color in rich hues, bold graphics and textured prints. This season’s selection of on-trend looks incorporates some of the warmest colors including spiced orange, burgundy, red orange and golden yellows in addition to cool shades of teal, jade green, marine and gray. Want to look your best this season in colorful designer pieces for less? Buyers from T.J.Maxx and Marshalls scoured the globe for fashionable items you want now. Here are the top stylish trends that T.J.Maxx and Marshalls have identified this season: Ladylike with an Edge: Look for pieces cut with classic feminine details yet with a modern twist. Try a retro-Hollywood glam look such as a jewel-tone peplum dress from T.J.Maxx paired with color-block platform heels from Marshalls. And indulge in fall’s luxe landscape with rich fabrics and dimensional details. Mix textures—don’t shy away from leather details on pieces like pencil skirts or tailored blazers, layered textiles like lace and studs on this season’s hottest handbags— and work in some fabulous faux fur into your outfit. For an even edgier twist, opt

for metallic brocade-patterned pants with a feminine sheer blouse. Animal Print: Fashion will also take a walk on the wild side this season with bold leopard, zebra and giraffelike prints, some even detailed with leather trim and textured fabric or studs. Take one of this season’s most popular shoes—the smoking shoe—made with black-and-white zebra print as a simple way to elevate any outfit. An animal-print wraparound scarf will not only protect you from the chill, it also pairs well with neutrals for an effortless look. For an evening look, choose a silk jade-green leopard-print top or blueand-black python clutch. Navajo: Strong and graphic prints, inspired by American folk art and the modern-day artisan, are due to make a big impression. Think vintage and free-spirited ethnic prints. Pair autumn warm-tone printed denim from T.J.Maxx and a lightweight top with suede crocheted booties from Marshalls for the ultimate on-trend look. The most stylish way to transition the season is with an Aztec-inspired wool cape. To complete the look, consider jewelry with mixed metals or a two-toned, mer maxi dress into fall with a chunky braided belt. If you want to make your summer out- sweater and boots or wear a blazer over fits last, layering is key. Transition a sum- your favorite floral top with skinny jeans and oxfords.

Great Louisiana Seafood (NAPSI)—Many people are looking for simple, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes—and seafood can be a fresh alternative to meat and poultry. Fortunately, preparing a tasty seafood meal is easier than you might imagine—if you have a little inspiration and fresh, premium quality ingredients from the Gulf. Chef Keith Frentz of LOLA Restaurant, winner of the 5th annual Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off and culinary ambassador for the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), used such ingredients to create his winning dish. “It was important for me to use products from the local farmers market and wild-caught Louisiana catfish because you don’t see them very often on menus,” said Frentz, who was crowned King of Louisiana Seafood. Chef Frentz offers another of his delicious recipes for Blackened Catfish Sandwich which may give you the confidence you need to make seafood a regular part of your home cooking repertoire. Blackened Catfish Sandwich Yield: 4 servings 1 cup paprika 2 Tbsp. black pepper 2 Tbsp. white pepper 3 Tbsp. cayenne pepper 1 tsp. sugar

¼ tsp. kosher salt ½ Tbsp. granulated garlic ½ Tbsp. granulated onion ¼ cup mayonnaise ¼ cup Dijon mustard 8 slices French bread 4 2-oz. pieces wild Louisiana catfish 2 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced 5 oz. spring salad mix Sliced pickles

skillet with olive oil. Preheat over medium-high heat. Generously rub fish pieces with seasoning mix. Place in skillet and cook 3−4 minutes per side until cooked through. Spread bread with mayonnaise mixture. Place fish on half of the bread slices. Top with tomato, salad mix and pickles. Place remaining bread on top of each portion to complete sandwich. Press lightly and serve immediately. Combine spices; set aside.

Schools Are Using Synthetic Turf To Add Value To Sports Facilities (NAPSI)—There can be real benefits to using artificial turf on athletic fields. That’s the word from schools that report they’re trading in their grass fields in favor of longer-lasting, durable synthetic playing surfaces, the same kind of fields used for collegiate, professional and even Olympic competitions. Increased Facility Use While some may consider investing in athletic facilities a luxury, proponents of artificial turf cite far-reaching dividends that go beyond Friday night football games. Most school administrators consider increased facility use as one of their top reasons for switching to artificial turf. Unlike natural grass fields that are highly guarded to ensure they are in good condition for games, artificial turf can withstand 3,000 hours of playing time per year without a “rest” period, according to the Synthetic Turf Council. That’s more than three times that of natural grass. Meeting Multiple Demands As a result, natural fields that were previously used for only one or two sports can meet the intense demands of multiple sports when replaced with a synthetic surface. With football, soccer, lacrosse, rugby and even physical education classes able to use the same field, a significant number of students benefit from these top-notch facilities. In addition, youth athletics and community events can also take advantage of the enhanced spaces. All of these functions lower the cost per use, and in some cases, create an additional revenue stream for districts. Environmental Benefits Artificial turf fields are designed to be more resilient to Mother Nature than their natural counterparts. Since irrigation and drainage systems store rainwater beneath the surface, rainouts and poor field conditions are rarely an issue with artificial turf, even in the wettest cities. On the flipside, schools in areas that experience extreme drought—like much of the southern U.S.—are not left with dry, brittle fields if they switch to artificial turf. Schools in dry climates also eliminate exorbitant costs and excessive water usage involved with natural grass maintenance. In 2010, the water conserved from every synthetic turf field in the U.S. equaled between $6 million and $12 million in savings. The Synthetic Turf Council says one full-size synthetic turf field saves an average of 500,000 to 1 million gallons of water each year, depending on the region. The El Paso Independent School District in Texas expects even bigger savings, though. It estimates a savings of 8 million gallons of water per year on each of the 10 synthetic turf fields recently installed, saving the district 80 million gallons of water

a year in total. Quality Counts The key to realizing these benefits is to ensure artificial turf systems are made with the highest-quality materials. Turf produced using DOWLEX™ Polyethylene (PE) Resins from The Dow Chemical Company, for example, is designed to provide the right combination of softness and resilience to create quality athletic fields for all levels of competitive play. A Worthwhile Investment “Considering all the benefits offered in terms of expanded use, reduced maintenance and positive environmental impact, we believe school districts that invest in artificial turf will be well served over the life of the investment,” said Carlos Ruiz,

a turf specialist from Dow’s Performance Plastics Division. Switching to artificial turf is a big decision, but many agree it is well worth it. Athletic directors, coaches and students will undoubtedly enjoy practicing and competing on high-quality synthetic surfaces that replicate the look and feel of natural grass. School districts will appreciate the return on investment. And communities will take pride in having top-notch facilities available to showcase the talents of local youths.

When Is LASIK A Smart Investment? (NAPSI)—If you are looking into LASIK eye surgery but have been put off by the high price tag, here are some facts you may want to consider. Although the initial cost of LASIK may be significant, it could actually be a good investment and save you money in the long run once you realize you will be wearing, and paying for, glasses or contacts for the next 20 years or more. It’s a smart idea to do the math and see if the procedure makes sense for you. The American Refractive Surgery Council notes that the investment in LASIK can benefit both your vision and your wallet. Consider these facts: • If you wear contacts for at least $70 a box, a six-month supply would cost $280. • If you pay for vision insurance, it may only cost you $10 a month, but it’s only worth it if you get money back on contacts or glasses. Regular checkups are usually free after LASIK surgery. • If you get a new pair of glasses every year, they could cost you $150 a pair or more. If you need more than one (distance and reading), that could be $300. • Contact lens supplies also add up— over 10 years, the expense of contact lens maintenance can be well over the cost of the LASIK procedure. In addition to learning if the procedure is right for your vision, you can also research ways to pay for the procedure, with options that include financing through a health care financing company, financing through a LASIK surgeon or using a flexible spending account. Some financing plans give you up to five years to pay off the procedure. The IRS considers LASIK to be a taxdeductible medical expense, and while your medical expenditures may have to

exceed a certain percentage of your income, the procedure may help you reach that amount. So don’t let financial considerations keep you from investing in your quality of life. LASIK can deliver great vision, making activities more enjoyable and eliminating the worry and frustration of losing

Big News Of Small Spaces (NAPSI)—Living large in a little home may not only simplify life, minimize costs and reduce environmental impact, it can be easier to achieve than many realize. Following these easy tips can help make rooms feel bigger and brighter. 1. Open floor plans and furniture placement that leaves views open make spaces easy to navigate and the room feel bigger. 2. Lighten up. Light colors on walls and furniture help small spaces feel large. Letting in natural light extends the feel of the room beyond its boundaries. 3. Get double-duty furniture: tables and ottomans with hidden storage space. Clean spaces look bigger, so keep clutter out of sight. 4. Store smart and stay organized. Shelving units maximize wall space for storage; add baskets on the bottom shelves for extra capacity. Fill clear containers

with seasonal clothing and items and slide them under couches and beds. 5. Convert a closet into a home office by adding a desk and shelves. Hang organizers on the back of the door for extra storage. Close the door and the computer and paperwork are out of sight, instantly opening up the room. For more tips on making the most of small spaces, visit the : Idea Gallery

Passes Help Visitors Explore War Of 1812 (NAPSI)—As the nation commemorates the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the penning of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” one city will take center stage. That city is Baltimore. During the war, the British launched an all-out bombardment of the city that lasted 24 hours. Only a small, star-shaped fort blocked their advancement but the fort’s soldiers and Baltimore’s citizens stood their ground, defending the fort and turning the battle-hardened British army back. At dawn the next day, surprised to see the flag still flying, Francis Scott Key wrote the poem that would become “The StarSpangled Banner.” Today, visitors to Baltimore can stand on the ramparts at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and gaze out at the waters where Key first saw the nation’s flag during the Battle of Baltimore. Visitors can also see Key’s original manuscript at the Maryland Historical Society and visit the home of Mary Pickersgill, where the 15-star, 15-stripe flag that flew over the fort was sewn. Visiting these sites is easier than ever before thanks to combo tickets that make it less expensive to visit several of the city’s top attractions. These include the Star-Spangled Baltimore Pass and Nation-

al Anthem by Land and Sea tours. The National Anthem by Land tour is a 75-minute narrated trolley tour on a San Francisco−style trolley. The National Anthem by Sea tour includes a 60-minute narrated cruise. The Preservation Society has also added 1812: Schooners and Privateers, a guided 60-minute walking tour focusing on the less-well-known Baltimoreans whose role as shipbuilders, sea captains, carpenters, innkeepers, laborers, seamstresses and
