COMMENTS AND OPINIONS 5 ¢ENTS WORTH

by Grant Nichols

To remind our readers of the upcoming Autumn Classic Field Band Competition scheduled for Saturday, September 25th, and to give the members of the Marching Owls (the hosts for the event) recognition for their award winning hard work on the field in the past, we loaded this issue with related photos. On Saturday, September 18th, early in the morning on “The Day of Awe,” before putting in our requisite time in prayer, we stopped at Parkway Field and took photos of the Marching Owls preparing for the event. Many of these have found their way onto the pages of our hard copy edition and some may be found in our expanded online edition. Of course, all photos taken this week can be found in our photo gallery…….Then later in the day, before the afternoon services began we found our way to Fretz Field where the Midget League Football games were to be found. There we photographed two more peewee teams and also took some photos of various people watching the games…….. And finally, late in the day, following the break-the-fast meal held at Temple Beth El we found our way to the Bradford Club where the second successive night of the 60th year reunion of the Class of 1950 was taking place. Sixty people were there, with Nick Monti serving as the Master of Ceremonies and Curtis Shaw giving the invocation. Alan Niver and his wife received a gift for having traveled the farthest to attend. They traveled from Kittery, Maine. Serving on the committee were Betty Barber McFadden, Nick Monti, Warren Roll, Joyce West VanHoute, Norma Smith Crooks, Joanne Flanders Lindy, Vincent Mike Autieri, Lester Stuck, and Rita Luciano Pais. Photos of committee members are included in this issue……. Mark Your Calendars: A Fall Festival event will be held at the McKean County SPCA on Glenwood Ave., Saturday, October 2nd from 10am to 4pm for the benefit of all the SPCA’s activities. There will be crafts, baked food sale, face painting, hay rides, games for children, Hot Dogs/Chili, “Bubbles the Clown” and “Smoky the Bear” …….Recently it has come to our attention that various States, including NY and PA are vying with families to obtain legal guardianship of older people. Associated with appointed guardianship by States is the subject of guardianship abuse. For those of our readers who wish to have on site information, and be able to witness due process of law, a case involving such topics will be held at 2:30 PM in the McKean County Courthouse in Smethport, Court Room #2 on Friday, October 8th. Holly Denmark Peffer tells us she will welcome your attendance……..

Rooting From Sidelines

-by Vince Vicere

The Buzz On The Street Honorable Councilmen, wise Mayor, are you listening? People who do a little thinking and talking, and a little bit of moving a shaking around town seem to be more upset than usual this week. They’re thinking about the $150 Thousand spent on the “City Master Plan” and wondering why it’s obviously just sitting on the shelf along with several other expensive reports from previous consultants and other city administrations. “When will action be taken? And when will the results be published?” they are asking. Now once again, the city is spending more money on consultants, this time in conjunction with the State of Pennsylvania, ostensibly to determine how to both fill the city coffers and make a sound budget. Will it never end! While not schooled in the arts of high-level financial management, many people have suggested that an advisory board of citizens be formed to define the problems of the Tuna Valley, including the City of Bradford. This board could then advise the council as to its findings and perhaps some of the possible solutions. Unlike the pressure on politicians to promote activity that favors those who keep them elected, such a board would operate with the idea of making life easier, saving the taxpayers money and lessoning their future burdens. What a novel idea! Just recently, the City Council, in an effort to make things better for the businessmen on Kennedy Street, created a one-way section, and added more parking spaces. The addition of parking spaces is good, but two things about the change are not logical. They chose to use parking meters as the way to restrict the time on parking, and they decided to make the traffic flow into Main Street at an intersection where traffic flow has always been a problem. This is a perfect example of where the input from the cool minds of an advisory board could have been of use. If the City fathers feel that the average citizen is only dissatisfied with the politicians in our State General Assembly and in Washington, they should think again. People are looking around town and seeing what has happened to our streets, our businesses and our housing stock over the last many years, and they are becoming more and more upset. The time for politics as usual, is almost over. The blight upon this city while most noticeable along our streets, can also be found walking in the halls of government.

CHILDREN & PARENTING 4-H Youth Development: An Overview Young people become confident, mature adults ready for success in today’s challenging world through 4-H, the only youth development program with a direct connection to technological advances from research conducted at state land-grant universities. Studies show that the more than 6.5 million youth participating in 4-H do better in school, are more motivated to help others, feel safe to try new things, achieve a sense of self-esteem, and develop lasting friendships. Boys and girls of all races and ethnic backgrounds in urban, suburban and rural communities across America and on U.S. military installations worldwide participate in 4-H experiences. 4-H programs are offered through school-based, after-school and camp settings and community clubs. Contemporary Focus The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical, “learn by doing” experiences encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. 4-H has three mission mandates: science, engineering and technology; healthy living; and citizenship. Youth learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through more than 1,000 projects with topics as varied as rocketry, GPS mapping, DNA analysis, public speaking, photography, nutrition and community service. Positive Youth Development Educators at 106 land-grant universities operate 4-H programs in every state and U.S. territory, alongside trained youth and adult volunteers. Learning opportunities are designed around four essential elements necessary for positive youth development. 4-H offers youth supervised independence, a sense of belongingwith a positive group, a spirit of generositytoward others and a wide variety of opportunities to masterlife challenges. 4-H is operated and supported by a shared leadership of public and private partners including National 4-H Headquarters; USDA within the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service; Cooperative Extension educators at land-grant universities; National 4-H Council; 4-H associations and foundations; and volunteers. An American Institution The 4-H youth development movement began more than 100 years ago. It evolved from rural youth programs created by land-grant college and university researchers and the United States Department of Agriculture to introduce new technology to what was then a country of primarily rural communities. As our nation’s economic and demographic profiles become more diverse, 4-H adapts and expands to meet the needs of all youth.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Pumpkin Flan for a Healthier Holiday Dessert (NAPSI)-A healthier take on holiday dishes can benefit the whole family, especially considering that type 2 diabetes affects at least 24 million American adults and children. People with diabetes are at greater risk of cardiovascular disease, the number one cause of death in the U.S. Cheryl Forberg, R.D., consulting dietitian to NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” and a James Beard award-winning recipe developer, has created diabetes-friendly, hearthealthy recipes for a holiday meal makeover.These recipes use canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all cooking oils. Forberg’s dessert recipe does away with pie crust and concentrates on yummy pumpkin flavor, allowing people to have their cake (flan) and eat it, too: Pumpkin Flan

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/3 teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ¼ teaspoon salt 1½ cups low-fat milk, heated until very hot Boiling water, about 1 quart Ground nutmeg (garnish) 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Adjust oven rack to center position. Coat eight 6-ounce custard cups or ramekins with canola oil cooking spray and set them in 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

2. In large bowl, beat eggs slightly; add pumpkin purée, maple syrup, canola oil, vanilla, spices and salt. Beat with mixer un3 eggs, omega-3 enriched, if available til blended thoroughly. Mix in hot milk until blended. There will be about 4 cups of 1¼ cups pumpkin purée liquid. Pour ½ cup flan mixture into each 7 tablespoons (¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons) prepared ramekin. maple syrup 3. Carefully pour boiling water into baking pan around ramekins. Water should come 5½ teaspoons canola oil up to the level of custard inside ramekins. 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract Canola oil cooking spray

TIPS TO CREATE A TAILGATE TOUCHDOWN (NAPSI)--As the weather cools down and football competition heats up, Americans are dusting off their game-time gear and preparing for the fall tailgate season. Everyone knows tailgating is about three things—food, fun and football. So whether you are tailgating outside the stadium or hosting a game-time party in the living room, here are some tips to make any football festivity a winner. • Don’t let the players have all the fun— extend the friendly competition off the field. At the beginning of your party have each guest write down which team they think will win and what the final score of the game will be. After the final pass is thrown, award the guest who comes the closest with a silly prize, like an oversized foam football hat or piñata. • Got little ones who are not quite interested in the game yet? Develop fun activities that will keep them occupied and engaged from the first kick-off to the last sack. Stock up on coloring books and art projects for them to create or put together a football-themed scavenger hunt and place clues throughout the house. These fun activities will ensure that they have fun during the game without interrupting any important plays. • Planning ahead will eliminate any lastminute scrambling before kick-off. Prep food and develop as many make-aheadmeals as possible the night before. For example, create satisfying barbecue pulledpork mini sliders by slow cooking pulled

4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until set around the edges but still a little loose in center. When center of flan is just set, it will jiggle a little when shaken. Remove from oven and immediately remove ramekins from water bath; cool on wire rack until room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. 5. Serve cold and garnish with ground nutmeg.This dessert can be made up to three days in advance. Keep refrigerated until serving.Yield: 8 servings.

A Moment of Practice

pork with barbeque sauce the evening prior—once the game starts the meat will be fully-cooked and ready to serve on warm Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls. If you’re looking for more delicious gametime recipes to add to your lineup visit SisterSchubertsFeedYourTeam.com and while you’re there enter the Feed Your Team sweepstakes for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Cooking.com or a grand prize of $5,000! • A party without a little flair will be easily forgotten. To make it memorable, choose decorations, such as plates, utensils and streamers, in the colors of the home team. While packing up the car for the tailgate, bring along a few branded blankets for when the cool evening breeze comes in. If you’re hosting at home add some additional flair by using old footballs, helmets and trophies as centerpieces for the table.

Gout Attacks Can Often Be Controlled Through Diet

Question: A couple of weeks ago my right foot started hurting in the middle of the night. It was so bad it woke me up. I had not injured my foot, and it was not swollen or red; it just REALLY hurt. It finally went away after a week or so of taking over the counter anti-inflammatory meds. I didn’t go to the doctor, but my husband says it was probably a gout attack. What is gout, and how can I keep from ever having another attack? Answer: Gout is perhaps the most painful form of arthritis. It runs in families and is caused by high levels of uric acid in the blood. Some of the risk factors for having gout are diabetes, obesity, high lipid levels in the blood, kidney disease and alcohol use. Men are more likely than women to suffer from gout, although the disease can afflict anyone. Your case sounds like a textbook description of a gout attack: occurring at night, extremely painful and located in the foot. While gout can occur in any joint in the body, it strikes the knuckles of the big toe most frequently, followed by ankle joints. Gout can also affect the knee, and wrist joints and fingers are also occasionally affected. Gout generally only affects just one side of the body at a time. For most people, the pain of gout is so severe that they end up in the emergency room in the middle of the night, or come into the doctor’s office at first light. A cortisone shot can help calm things down, and so can a prescription for powerful anti-inflammatory medication. However, prevention is the key to managing gout. Gout occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the blood. Uric acid can harden into small crystals that lodge in joints, causing the severe pain and inflammation associated with the disease. Uric acid is the byproduct of foods that are high in purines. Purines are found in many foods, but especially in protein-rich foods. Most people can eat a small to moderate amount of high-purine foods without precipitating a gout attack. But if you are prone to gout, foods like meats, liver and kidneys (sometimes called sweetbread), and seafood should be eaten only very moderately and in limited quantities. Although the reason is unclear, some highpurine plant products, like spinach, peas and beans do not seem to elevate the uric acid level of the blood. Alcohol also is known to elevate uric acid levels, leading to a gout attack, so gout patients should avoid alcoholic beverages. If you have only experienced one isolated gout attack, long-term medication is usually not recommended, but the dietary modification I have described above is advisable. If you suffer chronically high levels of uric acid or frequent gout attacks,

Q: How can I tell how much of the sugar in yogurt is from fruit and milk and how much is from added sugar? A: The product label itself doesn’t allow you to distinguish among the different sources of sugar. However, you can compare the sugar content listed on flavored yogurt to the sugar in a similar type of plain (unflavored) yogurt, since the difference between them will reflect added sugar content.When you do, you’ll see that eight ounces of most regular fruit-flavored yogurt contains about 2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons of added sugar. (There are about four grams of sugar in one teaspoon.) Eight ounces of most regular fruit-flavored yogurt contains 26 to 39 grams of sugar, whereas the same amount of plain regular yogurt contains 16 to 17 grams of the sugar naturally found in milk. That means that the sweetened fruit yogurts contain 10 to 27 grams of sugar from fruit and added sugar.We might like to believe that’s mostly from fruit, but a quick check of the nutritional content shows that it’s not. For example, strawberry yogurt contains 0 to 2 percent of Daily Value for vitamin C; if the yogurt contained even a tablespoon of strawberries it would have about 10 percent. When doing this comparison, be sure to compare similar serving sizes and types of yogurt. Nutritionally, eight ounces is considered a serving of yogurt, but a six-ounce container must list nutritional values for six ounces. And Greek yogurt starts with lower sugar content because of the whey that is drained off. But eight ounces of fruit-flavored Greek yogurt, too, contains 2 to 4 teaspoons of added sugar.The take-home message if you don’t want to do the label comparisons is that you can get much less added sugar, fewer calories and much more nutrition if you buy plain yogurt and add your own fruit. Q: Does Tai Chi count as a form of moderate exercise that reduces risk of chronic diseases? A: Depending on how it is used, Tai Chi apparently can decrease risk of some long-term health problems while posing very little chance of harm. Tai Chi is one form of what is called “meditative movement,” including a three-part focus on the body (posture and movement), breath and mind (meditation). Both Tai Chi, and a similar form called Qigong (pronounced chee-gung) include slow, flowing, dance-like motions and may also include sitting or standing meditation postures and gentle or vigorous body shaking. Some forms do fall in the category of moderate intensity exercise. A recent review of 67 separate randomized controlled trials of Tai Chi or Qigong concluded that they showed benefits after 8 to 12 weeks for heart health (especially blood pressure), bone health and balance (especially among those who were sedentary or at risk of falls). Benefits are most clear comparing those who practice these movements to people who are sedentary.Tai Chi and Qigong may provide benefits similar to other forms of exercise, but the results are less consistent, perhaps depending on frequency and specific style. Impact on weight control was inconclusive. consult your family physician. He or she tions in order to lower your uric acid levmay want to consider long-term medica- els and prevent ongoing attacks.

CHILDREN & PARENTING

House Rules Each school year brings along new challenges. As your child matures and grows, you’ll need to modify some of the house rules to meet her growing independence. Children of all ages need rules – clear lines between what they can do and what is not acceptable. This order provides predictability and can reduce the anxiety about their ever widening world. If your child is regularly challenging your house rules, she is telling you that she wants more control over her life. Challenging limits shows a desire to be self-sufficient, which is needed for independence. Encourage your child in as many ways as possible, and include her in the discussions of house rules. You’ll need to consistently enforce the consequences of her challenging the rules and comment when she follows the rules. Over time she sees that rules change with maturity and following the rules can be rewarding and lead to more independence. In order for your child to choose to follow house rules, she needs to see the benefits of doing so. The motivating benefit in many cases is getting to do what she wants to do. Keep in mind that house rules are to be followed even when you are absent and are not enforceable unless another adult is there to observe if the rule is being followed. The rule of “no watching TV after school” can only be enforced if someone is at home monitoring the situation. Tell your child what you want her to do rather than what you don’t want her to do. This keeps up front the desired behavior. Say, “Be home by 11:00 pm” as opposed to “Don’t stay out all night.” Involve your child in developing the rules. Your child is more likely to want to follow the rules if she plays a role in setting them. Keep the rules to a minimum, as each house rule also requires a consequence to be enforced should the rule be broken. Having a limited number of rules also helps to emphasize what is really important, as opposed to having a rule for each little situation. Praise your child when she follows the rules. It’s easy to fall into the habit of only commenting when your child breaks the rules. A child who is frequently praised for following the rules will be more likely to continue to follow the rules. Different situations require different behaviors, so help your child to learn these differences. There are rules to be followed at home, in school, at worship, etc. Children with well developed social skills do have an advantage in today’s world. Rules are simple statements of what is expected. When a rule is broken, asking “What’s the rule?” can bring your child back to neutral ground. This can free you from constantly being the authority and allows you to work with your child as she learns that house rules will be enforced. Avoid getting into power struggles with your child. A comment such as “You’ll clean your room because I say so” begins a battle of wills and the rule gets lost in this battle. Parents can be manipulated; rules cannot, unless you choose to not enforce them.

ARIES - (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19) You should discount nothing when it comes to hunting for jobs. Even the most surprising opportunities may seem anything but - at least initially. TAURUS - (Apr. 20 - May 20) Settled? Your partner could find it disconcerting if you suddenly want to take up with a totally new interest. Sparks can fly! GEMINI - (May 21 - June 20) You may be asked to make a very quick decision about a professional matter. If you’re someone who thrives on living on your wits, fine. However, if you like to carefully weigh up different angles, this could be more challenging. CANCER - (June 21 - July 22) There can be quite a bit of nervous tension this week, but it can also be creative tension. Discussions can see lots of ideas exchanged, some you will discount summarily, others will excite you. LEO - (July 23, - Aug. 22) As far as finances are concerned, things can be fluid. There can be sudden gains, but also unexpected costs. Yet the overall situation remains positive. VIRGO - (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) Someone who is almost completely your opposite, can really switch you on. This could be someone you work with or are drawn to from a romantic viewpoint. LIBRA - (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) You may have some brilliant ideas bubbling away in the back of your mind, but this is not, perhaps the best of week’s to broadcast these too far and wide. SCORPIO - (Oct. 23, - Nov. 21) You can feel extremely exuberant, in fact, at times, the life and soul of the party. But you may also find yourself changing your mind several times over, either about your life direction or your love life. SAGITTARIUS - (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) Your impulses can be strong and you may find yourself moving all the furniture around, or deciding to move altogether. CAPRICORN - (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) Your mind is zip-full of verve. This can see you be incredibly inquisitive and also full of nervous energy. Just sitting still for more than five minutes may itself, prove rather testing. AQUARIUS - (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) A love of independence is something which always comes to mind when thinking of your sign. But now you may find that this is challenged, either in business or romantically PISCES - (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) If you are artistic or creative, your unusual ideas can generate a lot of positive attention Pisces.

4-H Youth: A Revolutionary Force in Science (NAPSI)-At 14, Luana Xiong, from Merced County, California, has participated in a wide variety of activities throughout her five-year 4-H career, but nothing has intrigued her more than the 4-H science programs. For the last two years, Luana has participated in the 4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD)--an event in which hundreds of thousands of young people throughout the world simultaneously conduct a single science experiment. With aspirations to become a cardiovascular surgeon, Luana appreciates her 4-H science programs, as involvement in the curriculum and activities have helped her become comfortable with the subject. In 2009, Luana demonstrated the 4H National Science Experiment for 250 members of her community. The experiment, Biofuel Blast, showcased how cellulose and sugars in plants can be converted into fuel. “My goal was to spread my knowledge to as many people as I could.” As a newcomer to 4-H science, Brit Stevens from Gibson County, Indiana, will be getting his first taste of 4-H science at the 2010 4-H National Science Experiment: 4-H2O. At 13, Brit’s favorite 4-H activities involve showing animals at fairs. But as an aspiring architect, Brit knows the importance of having a solid foundation in the sciences. “I am pretty good at science.

Sax Players Listen-up

People should know the scientific explanation about things.” With plans to participate in NYSD again, Luana thinks it’s important for youths like Brit to get involved in 4-H science. “I am participating in 4-H Science Day again because I enjoy it so much. I also think it is so important to get the word out about what 4-H is and why Science Day was created-to get youth to go into science careers.” As part of 4-H’s One Million New Scientists, One Million New Ideas™ campaign, 4-H science programs like 4-H NYSD work to spark an early youth interest in science education in an effort to combat a national shortage of young people pursuing science in college and future careers. “Engaging youth in scientific explora-

Biking Escapes Through Valley Forge, Pennsylvania (NAPSI)-Rolling hills, lush countryside and the scenic Valley Forge National Historical Park make Montgomery County, Pa., a favored destination for cyclists, both amateur and professional. Fifty-five miles of interconnected trails and more than 20 in this park let visitors exercise their freedom to explore history and discover local lore. The northwestern part of Montgomery County offers lightly traveled, tree-lined roads and a newly completed, nine-mile paved loop around Green Lane Park. One of several county parks, it boasts three bodies of water and an annual ScottishIrish Festival that coincides with the Univest Grand Prix cycling race for men each September. The 6.6-mile Joseph Plumb Martin Trail in Valley Forge National Historical Park provides the perfect, picturesque path through this Revolutionary War icon, once the site of General George Washington’s winter encampment of 1777−78. Here, he forged his ragtag troops into the fighting force that eventually won America’s independence. The Schuylkill River Trail and the Perkiomen Trail intersect within the 3,600-acre park, where bike rentals are available from late spring to early fall. The

Schuylkill Trail extends north to Oaks and winds through urban and suburban neighborhoods all the way to Center City, Philadelphia. The 2-mile Audubon Loop takes cyclists from the Perkiomen Trail, which runs along the lovely Perkiomen Creek, to the wildlife sanctuary at John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. Each summer, amateur riders cycle in the River to River Heritage Bicycle Tour along the scenic Route 113 corridor from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River. Courses vary among 25-, 50-, 75- or 100mile loops, featuring hilly terrain through rural townships and quaint boroughs filled with farms, churches and businesses dating back to the 1700s. There’s a wealth of other recreational opportunities—like guided canoe trips, kayaking expeditions, zip-lining tours, fly-fishing and golf-available in Valley Forge and Montgomery County. Turtle Creek, one of the area’s more than 40 public courses, is described by Golf Digest as having some of the best turf in the Northeast. You’ll golf on land originally owned by William Penn, the focal point of which is a 1734 Virginia-style, Colonial stone farmhouse. For more information on both outdoor

Four Tips To Keep You Warm On Colder Days (NAPSI)-It’s important to stay active, whatever the season, so don’t let colder days discourage you. Here are a few tips to help keep you warm when you venture out: 1. Cover your head but don’t forget neck and ears. Keep your ears warm with a cap, earplugs or ear warmers. 2. Get some tight gloves. Make sure they are waterproof gloves so ice and water can’t seep in to chill you. Also, make sure the gloves have a good grip, so you don’t have to take them off to do things outside. If it’s really cold, you can put some mittens on over your gloves or a liner in them. 3. Dress in layers and make the layer closest to your skin wool or polyester. Cotton or silk is good at absorbing moisture and if you work up a sweat, you could get chilled. In extreme climates, you might start with a layer or two of underwear to be topped with wool sweaters, fleece pants and jackets, plus a windproof shell. Layers should be loose enough to leave room for air so you lock in heat. 4. To keep toes nice and toasty, use footwear with a rechargeable heating system. Boar from Wenger Footwear not only comes with a rechargeable heating system but offers waterproofing technology, making it impenetrable in cold, wet conditions. Weighing only 20 ounces, the product allows for three temperature settings and offers up to 10 hours of heating. Recharging takes about two to three hours. Other features include Thinsulate insulation, PosiStep outsoles (which provide enhanced traction) and ZipTight lacing. The product also features OutDry, the state of the art in waterproofing technology. Unlike other waterproofing systems, which use a booty that acts like a sock lining, this waterproof membrane is laminated directly to the outer layer of the shoe, so there is no water penetration.

Tools, Tips And Tricks For Making Leftovers More Lovable (NAPSI)-According to a recent survey, three in four Americans let some of their holiday meal go to waste. Instead, consider these festive recipe ideas. Reinvent Holiday Leftovers You can breathe new life into leftovers with a meal plan that lets you spend more time with the family and less time in the kitchen. Make the most of your meal and prevent your refrigerator from bursting at the seams with these quick leftover tips: • While 38 percent of people toss leftover pumpkin after the holiday meal, according to the survey, you can salvage this delicious ingredient by freezing extra in halfcup increments for an easy add-in to waffles, pancakes or muffin batter. • Survey results indicate that the top food likely to be tossed each holiday season is cranberry relish, but you can reuse this staple instead of grape jelly and create a festive twist on the classic PB & J. • Bring in the new year and finish off the leftover cranberry relish with a cranberry spritzer. Mix a few spoonfuls with two parts sweet wine and one part lemon-lime soda for a refreshing celebratory cocktail. • Though 25 percent of those surveyed toss the extra mashed potatoes, you can try panfrying spoonfuls and adding to your morning omelet or baking into a veggie frittata. • Don’t be one of the 15 percent of Americans who scrap leftover turkey. Try it in Thai Basil Lettuce Wraps. Thai Basil Lettuce Wraps Peanut Sauce

Pointers On Protecting Your Pets From Poisoning

Owls Color Guard Prepares For Big Event

(NAPSI)-By being alert to the danger, you may be able to keep your precious pets from poisoning themselves. The Problem Pet owners often joke about pets being like vacuum cleaners--literally eating anything put in front of them. Unfortunately, that lack of dietary discretion too often results in pets ingesting toxic substances, emergency visits to the veterinarian and large medical bills.

Combat Cold And Flu During Sniffle-Sneeze Season (NAPSI)-Most households will be hit by at least one bout of respiratory illness in the coming months; in fact, the average child gets six to 10 colds per year and the average adult has two to four. There are many easy and affordable ways to keep your family healthy. Staying ahead of colds and the flu takes a little knowledge and a lot of common sense, say healthcare experts at Target, who offer the following tips for staying healthy this season: Cold or Flu: What’s the Difference? The common cold and influenza are both respiratory illnesses, but they differ in severity and are caused by different types of viruses. “Flu is usually more severe and marked by fever, body aches, extreme tiredness, muscle aches and a dry cough, whereas cold symptoms are generally milder and include a runny or stuffy nose, a sore throat, and sneezing or coughing,” says Target Medical Director Dr. Joshua Riff. “While colds generally do not result in serious health problems, influenza can sometimes lead to pneumonia and require hospitalization.” Colds and the flu both spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes, expelling tiny respiratory droplets containing the virus. Direct contact with the person isn’t even necessary since droplets can live for hours on tables, doorknobs and other surfaces. You can get sick just by touching the contaminated surface and then touching your face. Avoid and Prevent While there is no surefire way to prevent all respiratory illnesses, there are some common-sense practices that reduce your risk. First, get vaccinated. It’s the single best way to stay healthy and protect your loved ones, especially the very young and the elderly. While there is not yet a vaccine against the common cold, a flu shot will significantly reduce the risk of contracting the flu. This year, more than 1,600 Target Pharmacy and 36 Target Clinic locations across the country are offering a vaccine for just $24 that protects against both the seasonal flu and H1N1. Second, disinfect hands and surroundings. Next to getting a flu shot, the best way to avoid the flu is to wash hands often with warm, soapy water. Dr. Riff endorses the tip of singing “Happy Birthday” twice to be sure you are washing for at least 15 to 20 seconds. Alcohol-based hand wipes and gel sanitizers are also effective. Use a

Finally, practice healthy habits that boost and protect your immune system. Get a good night’s sleep and exercise regularly. And don’t underestimate the power of fresh fruit and juices rich in vitamin C, such as tangerine, orange, pineapple and strawberry. Know How to Treat Despite all the precautions, you might still get sick. If you do come down with a cold or the flu, stay home and rest. Going to work or school is not only hard on you, it will make others sick, too. There are no medicines that will speed the course of a cold, but there are many things you should have on hand to relieve symptoms and help you rest. Stock up on the following items and you will be well prepared for cold and flu season: • A pain reliever like ibuprofen or acetaminophen will reduce fever and relieve body aches and headaches. Save by purchasing private-label brands such as up & up from Target ($3.34 for 100-count ibuprofen)--the quality is the same as that of national retail brands, which retail for $7.99-$8.99. • Saline nasal spray and a nasal decongestant will reduce congestion. • Cough drops will relieve a scratchy throat.

• A cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer will help to relieve coughing. Target is the one-stop shop for all your cold and flu season needs—from flu shots and medicine cabinet must-haves to nutritious fresh produce and soothing comfort foods. Visit a nearby store or: www.Target.com/flu

You’re Never Too Smart To Get Conned (NAPSI)-Smart people get conned, too. Ask Sarasota, Fla., tax attorney John McKenney. A lawyer for more than 20 years, he represents clients in front of the IRS and prepares tax returns for local businesses. He knows his way around a balance sheet and the complexities of the tax code. He also lost $250,000 in an alleged Ponzi scheme. “There are a lot of people around here that lost a lot more money than I did who were smarter and more experienced investors,” McKenney said. The common misconception about investment fraud victims is that they are gul-

lible, unsophisticated or financially illiterate. But research conducted for the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and AARP reveals just the opposite is true. The survey of more than 300 investors, half of whom were victimized by fraud, showed that victims tend to be higher income, college-educated, self-reliant and more financially knowledgeable than nonvictim investors. “Many investment fraud victims are professionals,” said FINRA Foundation president John Gannon. “They’re doctors, lawyers, stock brokers, businessmen. In fact, the typical investment fraud victim is a well-educated male between the ages of

Protecting Your SSN (NAPSI)-One of your most valuable and personal assets is your Social Security number (SSN), and it’s important to protect it. There are only three situations in which you are required to provide your SSN: when dealing with the government, potential employers or your credit history (to get credit or your score). Yet all kinds of businesses—gyms, schools, mobile phone and cable providers—ask for the number. While a company can refuse to do business with anyone unwilling to share his or her SSN, in most cases exceptions can be made and policies can be changed—it just

takes a few well-informed, persistent consumers to make this point. When filling out an application in any of the above instances, instead of writing your SSN, you may write “please call for SSN.” The nonprofit Privacy Rights Clearinghouse notes that “SSNs are required on transactions in which the IRS may be interested.” Otherwise, it is wise to challenge requests for your SSN. Even trustworthy organizations with which you must share your SSN, such as a mortgage lender, can have data breaches. Fortunately, a company called EZShield Identity Protection can detect and minimize breaches and provide identity restoration, if necessary.

55 and 65.” The problem, said Robert Cialdini, a psychologist at Arizona State University and an expert on the psychology of persuasion and influence, is that your own self-confidence lowers your guard. “If you think you’re invulnerable to these things, your defenses come down and you become more vulnerable as a consequence,” he said. “So those individuals who have the background and experience, who think they know what constitutes a trick and what doesn’t, then open themselves up to the possibility of being tricked because they’re sure that they can spot it and resist it. Oftentimes they are wrong.” Research shows that a better predictor of whether you or someone you know might be a future fraud victim is risky investing behavior, such as: • Owning other high-risk investments. • Relying on friends, family or co-workers for advice. • Openness to new investment ideas. • Failing to check backgrounds and registrations of professionals or products. • Inability to spot the persuasion tactics con artists use. You can test your susceptibility to fraud by using the Foundation’s Risk Meter at www.SaveAndInvest.org The website also provides information on spotting and avoiding fraud, as well as information on where to get help.
