In Carpet Area- About To Do Some Research

The Young Warrior

Photo submitted Pete O’Donohoe, 1st Vice Commander, and well known Past Commander of Bradford’s American Legion Post #108 is one of the movers and shakers of the organization. What isn’t so well known is his past glory as a warrior and paratrooper with the US Army. In this photo taken in 1955, when Pete was a young pup of 19, just three months out of jump school, we see him in full jump gear as a member of the U.S. Army, 11th Airborne Division. He served from December 3rd 1954 to November 30th 1957, and from October 1, 1961 to September 1, 1962, made 36 jumps, and tells us he loved every minute of it.

-by Bob Perry In my previous article on border security I stated that secular-progressives want open boarders. This is because they insist that all human beings should have free movement anywhere. Become aware of the long list of goals they have for the changes they seek would destroy the traditional way of life that has been so good for us. For example: They do not want any public display of any religious beliefs. The ultimate goal is to replace Judeo-Christian values with radical secular-progressive values. Inroads have been made as evidenced by rulings judges have been making some of them shocking. The philosophy of ‘restorative justice’ has found its way to the bench whereby the victim does not receive traditional justice and the offender gets a slap on the hands for the crime committed. You might remember a young girl was sexually abused over a four-year period and after being tried, the offender got six-months for his crimes. Justice? Minnesota and Vermont officially support the ‘restorative’ philosophy. Next… The mainstream media keeps proving they support the progressive movement with either lacking to report issues or siding with them. Throughout history totalitarian governments have practiced the tactic of separating children from their parents and numerous rulings have created an ever increasing divide. Parents have faced increased limitations on punishment and guidance (especially on sex education (Continued on page 5)

COMMENTS AND OPINIONS 5 ¢ENTS WORTH

At Their Desks In Mrs. Lanich’s Room

by Grant Nichols

GGB Elementary School (preschool through 2nd grade) was the central focus for our photos this week. There we stopped at several first grade classrooms to see what the young students were learning. As we expected, they were working with vocabularies, reading and understanding the stories. And as we also expected, the children in the early grades are willing and anxious to see their pictures in the paper. What we didn’t expect was the movement from one specific aspect of the subject matter to another within ten minute intervals. It seemed to us that the early grades have recently become much more fast paced and dynamic than we had remembered them to be.……..Also included in this issue is a photo depicting another donation by the Bradford Legion Club and Post #108- this time a $2,000 designated contribution to the Bradford Family YMCA’s Barracudas swim team…..And finally to wind the photos up for the week we have also included one of a young warrior from the past, who now even though slightly older, is still involved, at least peripherally in the promotion of the rights of veterans everywhere- Pete O’Donohoe by name…….. The trustees of Penn State University are taking a lot of flack for having fired Joe Paterno in what seemed like a cowardly move to distance the school from the pederasty scandal there. We must admit that we were a little more than miffed with their action in firing not only the coach but also the President of the University. Now though, in light of the many articles, data, and commentaries that have appeared in various news media we have moderated our judgment. The trustees, being ultimately responsible for the continued and unimpeded operation of the University, would have been concerned with the potential loss of State funding and disruption of their athletic program , a student-body builder and a revenue generator-the NCAA was investigating the School and the PA Attorney General was placing the albatross of immorality around the neck of the University. Furthermore, none of the actors in the scandal would step up and take the blame (their attorneys would have advised them against such action). This was the scenario when the Board made their drastic move. We think that perhaps they felt their action would be seen as an act of contrition or cleansing for the University in general. Whatever their thinking, it would be good for people, at a minimum, to acknowledge that the trustees acted with the school’s best interest at heart.

They are about to assemble in the carpet area of the room where they use the smart board, the storyboard or listen to stories.

and abortion). We are headed towards a totalitarian government as increasingly it becomes more invasive in all areas of our lives. They have no business dealing with shower heads, light bulbs, etc. Currently we are being bombarded with a bully pulpit rhetoric insisting we have a moral obligation to redistribute the wealth. They intend to take from the rich and give to the poor. Saddled with an albatross of a tax code, we need a complete revision which will result in every citizen paying a fair share. Secular-progressives support unrestricted behavior, abortion, euthanasia, legalized hard drugs, unlimited governmental power, etc. Know what your candidates stand for before you vote.

Entertain with a Rustic Roasted Meal (Family Features) Feeding a lot of people doesn’t have to be daunting. A comforting one-dish meal is perfect for any occasion – whether you’re throwing a casual get-together, having a housewarming party or hosting a family gathering. A heaping platter of Roasted Vegetables with Rotini and Parsley-Rosemary Pesto will satisfy even the heartiest appetite, plus it’s easy to make. Curly rotini pasta, tossed with a homemade pesto, lean chicken sausage and your choice of roasted vegetables is a crowd-pleaser – and makes an appetizing presentation. A couple of things set this recipe apart. For one, preparing it with Dreamfields pasta provides added nutritional benefits. Made from durum wheat semolina, Dreamfields has the same taste and texture as traditional pasta, but with twice the fiber and fewer digestible carbohydrates (only five grams) per 1-cup cooked serving. The unique pesto, made with parsley, rosemary and walnuts rather than the traditional basil and pine nuts is another stand-out in this dish. Simply puree all the ingredients in a food processor, toss with roasted veggies, sausage and pasta, and dinner is served. For this and more amazing recipes, visit www.dreamfieldsfoods.com Roasted Vegetables with Rotini and Parsley-Rosemary Pesto

Stir vegetables. Add sausage and reserved broccoli and cauliflower. Continue roasting 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned and tender.

Salsa Salmon

What’s So Great About Avocados?

FAMILY FEATURES

Small changes make a big difference

ne of the easiest ways to make better-for-you recipes is to swap out some ingredients. In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when you’re cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini — and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa — and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat:  Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs.  Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich.  Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner.  Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com.

O

Grilled Chicken Fettuccini Yield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat.

About 75 percent of an avocado’s calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados:  Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.  Are rich in vitamins B, E and K.  Are high in fiber compared to other fruits — including 25 percent soluble fiber.  Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free.

Yield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (it’s better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375°F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 minutes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow directions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Sauté pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese.

Asian Chicken Salad Yield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 tablespoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles.

Enjoy Guac Any Time You Want It’s not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados aren’t always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water.

(NAPSI)—We have all experienced it. You are at your favorite restaurant anticipating a great meal, but when you take your first taste, you realize something isn’t right. The chef was in a hurry and left out one of the key seasonings—salt. You reach for the salt-shaker and sprinkle on some to adjust the taste to your liking. Or maybe you’ve had the opposite experience. Your meal arrives and it is way too salty so you send it back. Whether you knew it or not, the simple act of adjusting the seasoning is similar to what toxicologists routinely do—determining the right amount of an ingredient or chemical to use and predicting the effects of chemicals based on how much is used. Too little and it doesn’t do what it is intended to do. Too much and it is unpleasant or potentially harmful. This simple experiment also dictates the way we use chemicals in every aspect of our life, from the vitamins and drugs we take to maintain or improve our health, to the use of preservatives to prevent spoilage in food we eat or products we use. Understanding how the chemical is used is important but understanding the response is crucial. The question we need to ask about how much salt is too much is related to health effects, so measuring changes in blood pressure with increasing amounts of salt used may be the more critical thing to test. In each case, we are looking to relate the amount we used with the effects we experience in an attempt to find the right balance. The use of dose-response can also be used to predict effects on the environment. The amount of exhaust from the car you drive makes a difference in the concentration in the air in the community. In an urban setting, the number of cars is much greater and the concentration of automobile exhaust in the air would be expected to increase. If levels of exhaust in the air get too high, it becomes unpleasant and possibly unhealthy. The amount released and the effect on air quality is predicted based on the number of cars in an area (dose) and the health effects observed (response) and is used by government agencies such as the EPA to set community air quality standards. Both the dose and response are critical for this concept to be useful. Knowing how much we used without knowing the effect does us no good and knowing effects without knowing the amount that caused the effect is likewise not useful. However, together, these two elements provide us all with a powerful tool for making decisions that impact our health and environment.

Q: Can cooking with more herbs and spices really add a significant amount of antioxidants to food? A: Yes. Research has shown for some time that herbs and spices are concentrated sources of natural compounds that are strong antioxidants. Now a small preliminary study shows that blood antioxidant levels increased after people ate a meal with large amounts of added herbs and spices. This study used a mixture of rosemary, oregano, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, garlic, paprika and turmeric. These herbs and spices are among those with the most research documenting the content of their protective compounds. The amount of herbs and spices added up to more than six teaspoons per person, which is substantially more than most of us typically use in cooking, but it did not reduce enjoyment of the meal’s flavor. And as an additional benefit, blood triglycerides and insulin increased less following the meal with herbs and spices than following the same meal without these flavorings. Blood sugar elevations following the meal were no different with or without spices, but the men in this study were healthy. There is some evidence that herbs and spices might increase insulin effectiveness, so future research can test whether this brings benefits for people with problems controlling blood sugar. Other research shows that cooking meat with even a small amount of rosemary or turmeric can reduce formation of heterocyclic amines (HCAs) that are linked to colon cancer, and cooking with a spice blend can reduce formation in meat of a compound believed to damage blood vessel walls and DNA. Antioxidant content of some fresh herbs may decrease when they are dried, but analysis shows that dried herbs generally remain excellent source of antioxidant compounds. Q: Are pedometers all the same, or what should someone look for before making a purchase? A: Walking and other forms of physical activity now appear vital to lower risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. And studies support the value of pedometers (step counters) in helping people meet healthy activity goals. But your question is important, because pedometers are not all alike. You can find pedometers for less than five dollars or as promotional giveaways. These can be fun to use as you make goals and track progress, but most are not highly accurate and may last only a month or two to get your walking habit started. If you plan to use a pedometer for a longer time either daily or periodically and want better accuracy, plan to spend at least twenty dollars. However, studies show that even good quality pedometers made with the standard mechanism tend to give inaccurate results in people who have enough waistline fat that a pedometer can’t hang straight from a waistband.Those who tend to walk very slowly due to infirmities or balance problems are also prone to inaccuracies. Both of these groups of people can get accurate results by choosing an accelerometer – a type of pedometer that works with a different mechanism. Many of these devices can also separately track how much of your movement falls in the especially healthful moderate to vigorous category, but do realize that these also cost more than standard pedometers

With Preventive Screenings, You Can Curb Serious Health Problems -by George Andrews, M.D. (NAPSI)—About half of American adults suffer with at least one chronic condition, such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, many of these conditions are preventable or can be detected early through checkups and screenings, which oftentimes are free or covered at low costs by most health plans. Being proactive by regularly taking advantage of the availability of preventive tests can decrease trips to the doctor or the emergency room and help detect chronic conditions before they become serious and require expensive treatment. To encourage their members, many health insurers offer rewards, such as free or discounted medications, for taking these preventive tests. Some plans also help make it easy for members to have the screenings by setting up appointments for them or providing home test kits. However, despite these benefits, there is concern that adults aren’t getting the preventive care they need for lifelong health and well-being. Here are four key areas where Humana suggests you get preventive care: 1) Cancer. Fewer than half of adults over age 50 are up to date with screenings for colorectal cancer. However, estimates suggest that a screening, such as a colonoscopy—recommended every 10 years by the CDC—could help save more than 18,000 lives annually from colorectal cancer, the second-leading cause of U.S. cancer-related deaths. Additionally, recent studies found that only half of eligible women in the U.S. get their recommended annual mammogram. Mammograms lower the risk of dying from breast cancer by 35 percent in women over the age of 50. 2) Diabetes. Diabetes, which affects 24 million Americans, is the leading cause of heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and lower-extremity amputation. With tests available to monitor for cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, blindness and foot issues, it is easier than ever to diagnose diabetes and reduce the progression of related complications. 3) Heart and Stroke. Heart disease and stroke are the first and third-leading causes of death, respectively, also accounting for a large number of disabilities for Americans. Fortunately, screenings have helped reduce death rates for both conditions by more than 20 percent since 1999. Cardiovascular screenings every five years to test cholesterol, lipid and triglyceride levels can help detect conditions leading to a heart attack or stroke. It is also important to eliminate smoking, a direct contributor to heart disease and stroke. Today, many

health plans like Humana offer help with smoking cessation. 4) Mind/Body. On average, adults with serious mental illnesses live 25 years shorter than their counterparts without these illnesses, which are largely due to preventable conditions. Depression screenings are just one service designed to help monitor for serious mental health conditions. Counseling for alcohol and drug abuse— both of which can lead to a wide range of physical, mental and social problems—is also available. George Andrews, M.D., is the Corporate Chief of Quality at Humana. A former Fulbright scholar, Andrews is board certified in the areas of internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.

Learn The Facts About How To Detect And Manage Glaucoma (NAPSI)—Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness. Millions of Americans are living with the condition, and many more may not know they have it. Over the next several years, the number of people with glaucoma is expected to rise. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases. In most cases, it is associated with increased pressure within the eye. Often called a “silent” disease, glaucoma may progress without symptoms until irreversible damage is done. However, early detection and proper management may help prevent the potentially serious outcomes of glaucoma. But today, the condition continues to be underdiagnosed and often overlooked. Many patients who have been diagnosed with glaucoma do not stay on track with their personal treatment plan. There are many things you can do to help become a better advocate for your eye health. Leading eye care and aging experts have joined for the TAKE on Glaucoma campaign (Take Action to Know your Eyes), to help educate Americans about understanding and managing glaucoma. “As a practicing ophthalmologist, I see firsthand from my patients just how important and challenging it can be to make glaucoma a priority,” said James C. Tsai, M.D., chairman, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Yale University and TAKE on Glaucoma spokesperson. “There are many things in life that we must juggle, but taking the time to monitor your eye health and manage glaucoma should not be ignored.” The TAKE on Glaucoma campaign has useful tips that you can use—whether you have glaucoma, are at risk for the condition or know someone who has it. Understand the Risk Factors for Glaucoma Many Americans may be unaware of the risk factors for glaucoma. The most common risk factors include family history, ethnicity (African American or Hispanic), age (greater than age 40 in African Americans or above age 60 in the general population), nearsightedness (also called myopia) and pressure in the eye. There are other possible risk factors such as low central cornea thickness, diabetes, hypertension, eye trauma and use of steroids. Schedule Regular Comprehensive Eye Exams It is important to visit your eye doctor for regular, comprehensive eye exams to evaluate and help maintain your eye health. Depending on your age and risk factors, it is recommended that you have an eye exam every one to two years. Do you know when you last had one? During your eye exam, it is important that your eye doctor dilates your eyes and

also checks the pressure in your eye. These are critical steps to monitor for potential signs of glaucoma symptoms or disease progression. Create a Disease Management Plan That Works for You If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, work with your eye doctor to create a disease management plan that best fits your lifestyle and routine. Your eye doctor may recommend prescription eye drops, laser treatment or other types of surgery as part of your plan. While these treatments may help reduce high pressure in your eye, they do not improve sight already lost because of glaucoma. This is why it is important

that you act now. If you believe you’ll have trouble staying on track with your treatment plan or taking your medication correctly, tell your eye doctor. He or she can help address these challenges. Family and close friends can also be good sources of support with reminders or other ways to help you follow your treatment plan. Learn More: To learn more, visit www.takeonglaucoma.com TAKE on Glaucoma is an educational program developed, in partnership, by The Glaucoma Foundation, the Alliance for Aging Research and Merck, and is funded by Merck.

(NAPSI)—Valentine’s Day is about celebrating the relationship you are in: long term, short term and even friendships. That’s the word from Matt Titus, dating coach and gifting expert at TheGift. com. To help make this Valentine’s Day one to remember, he offers the following tips: Make Her Feel Beautiful—Gorgeous red roses and little gifts that speak to their personality or interests can go a long way. For example, nail polish and lipstick are very popular right now and are very affordable. Spend Time Alone—It’s not uncommon for couples to struggle to find time to enjoy each other’s company. “Re-

member,” says Titus, “a couple must retain some degree of independence from their children to maintain an emotional bond.” Wow Her—Go the extra mile. For example, according to a survey conducted by Wakefield on behalf of 1-800-Flowers.com, of the 1,000 women surveyed, over 40 percent (42 percent) of respondents said they would be satisfied if their significant others cooked them a romantic dinner—provided they cleaned up the kitchen after they cooked. Little extras, such as having a thoughtful message engraved in a bracelet or ring, can also express your affection and turn a gift into a keepsake.

Five Ways To Trick Out Your Tablet (NAPSI)—If you’re like many Americans, you—or someone you love—bought or received a tablet as a gift recently. The tablet market is booming. Lighter than laptops and more powerful than smartphones, tablets are now the go-to device for anyone looking to take their music, entertainment and, begrudgingly, some work with them. According to a recent study from Infinite Research, Americans adoption of tablets—such as the iPad or Galaxy Tab—is happening at a faster pace than any other electronic device in history, including computers, game consoles and smartphones. In fact, a recent report from eMarketer projects that by 2014, nearly 90 million Americans will be using tablets monthly. And already, almost half of the respondents in a Google AdMob survey of tablet users said they use their tablet more often than their computer or laptop. This popularity is driving people to find ways to make using tablets easier and more convenient. To this end, tablet accessories can help take entertainment and content creation to the next level. Here are five fun ways to trick out your tablet: Type Up a Best Seller Tablets can be used for more than surfing the Web and reading books. With the array of wireless keyboards designed for tablets, heavy-duty typing is completely doable. Compact and wireless keyboards like the Logitech Keyboard Case for iPad 2 (also for Samsung Galaxy Tab) combine the luxury of typing on a comfortable surface within a protective case that also holds your tablet upright. Work and the Web, Smarter Touch-screen cursor control isn’t the best for everything, especially when working on something that requires more than simple pointing or clicking. In fact, a mouse is a must-have for any task that requires formatting text and images, or navigating the Web for any length of time. No longer just accessories for PCs, there are a few mouse options designed for tablets. Look for one that brings laser precision to interacting with the tablet, and Bluetooth wireless pairing will make it easy to use on the go. Beat Your Highest Score Strong graphic performance and processing speed make tablets a great tool for gamers—from the casual to the serious. If you want game-winning precision not afforded by touch-screen controls, attach the Logitech Joystick for iPad or iPad 2 for the familiar feel and responsiveness of a thumb-stick-style controller. Get Help in the Kitchen The kitchen is one place a tablet can be at the center of a domestic experience. Us-

ing an adjustable tablet stand, the chef can pull up and display an online recipe while being inspired by a favorite playlist, all at once. Set the Backyard BBQ to Music Bringing music to your backyard can be a hassle, often compromising selection or sound. However, when an iPad (iPhone or iPod touch) can wirelessly stream music to a speaker, such as the Logitech Wireless Speaker for iPad (also available for

Android devices), you enjoy more control over the music. Plus, the speaker can blast tunes from your tablet’s full library from up to 50 feet away. Whether you’re looking for more function or more fun, you can trick out your tablet with accessories designed to make your life easier.

A Season For Sharing (NAPSI)--Cold and flu season is in full swing, which means people will be sharing more than just holiday cheer. Every year, more than 62 million cases of the common cold are reported in the U.S., according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and as many as 24 million people report suffering from a sore nose. All that nose blowing and wiping can make a nose feel sore and add to the discomfort and misery of the common cold. While there are steps you can take to alleviate the discomfort associated with a cold—drinking plenty of hot liquids, taking a cold remedy and getting plenty of rest—your poor sore nose may suffer. Reaching for a soft, soothing tissue may offer your nose a bit of relief. In addition to reaching for a tissue, here are three simple tips to help you through cold and flu season: 1. First, blow your nose. Wipe your nose with a soft tissue. Be careful not to rub too hard. Then, blow as hard as you can to get the mucus out. 2. To soothe sore, chapped skin, apply lip balm, moisturizer or any unscented medicated lotion. 3. Share selectively. Germs are awfully easy to spread, and nobody wants to share a cold. On the other hand, if you know someone who’s coming down with a cold, share those home remedy necessities! You can help stock up on cans of soup or herbal tea—you can even send a Kleenex Share Pack for free online at www.kleenex.com/ SoftnessWorthSharing while supplies last. The Softness Worth Sharing promotion is designed to encourage sharing with any-

one, anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. To participate, consumers can visit Kleenex. com and follow the simple directions to send a free Share Pack to someone special. Everyone who sends a Share Pack will receive a free sample of new Kleen-

ex Cool Touch tissue and they can track the chain of sharing they’ve inspired via an interactive map. Last year, more than 1 million people shared the softness with friends and family.

Winter Driving Safety: What You Need To Know (NAPSI)—When it comes to winter driving, being prepared can help keep you on the road to safety. Winter weather can be unpredictable, so it’s important to navigate icy, snowy roads with caution. To help, here are some tips designed to sharpen your driving skills and get you prepared for winter’s worst. Account For The Conditions First and foremost, it is important to keep control of your vehicle at all times. When you encounter snowy conditions, remember to slow down. It takes a vehicle twice as long to stop on slippery surfaces as it does on dry roads. If you do not have an ABS system, avoid braking suddenly. Give the brake pedal a few soft taps rather than one hard push to avoid sending your vehicle into a skid. The Right Tires Are Key Equally important to increasing your winter driving safety is making sure

your car has winter tires. They can play an essential role in your vehicle’s safety, handling and performance when driving in cold-weather road conditions. Did you know that winter tires can deliver approximately 25 percent more traction on winter roads than all-

season tires, which can help you to stop in time and avoid trouble spots? Also, as temperatures get colder, your tire’s air pressure can change. This makes it important to check your tire pressure monthly during the winter season. Ensuring that tires are at the proper inflation levels will help optimize winter tire performance and can also help improve fuel efficiency. For example, the Michelin X-Ice® Xi2 tire is engineered to tackle the most extreme cold-weather driving conditions. A wide-tread contact patch generates acceleration and braking power, as well as cornering traction, for outstanding winter maneuvering. Getting the facts on winter driving techniques and taking the time to have your vehicle checked before venturing out on the roads this winter can make all the difference when it comes to safety.

Using Your Roof To Make A Design Statement (NAPSI)—A great way to add curb appeal to your home is to start at the top— with the most style-appropriate roof. Besides protecting your home from the elements, the right roof should complement your exterior design scheme. Not sure what kind of roof suits your home? Here are a few suggestions from the experts at GAF: • French Country: For these homes, the extensive use of stone and other masonry products incorporates various accent colors. Therefore, many different types of shingles and colors look good with this type of home. Camelot® Lifetime Designer Shingles, with their slate-like design, add another dimension of style to the roof while still maintaining the integrity of the overall architecture. For an affordable luxury option, consider Camelot II, which has the same type of look as Camelot but at a lower cost. The sleek lines of Slateline® shingles also work well with the French Country style. • Georgian: GAF’s slate-look shingles, such as Camelot, or the sculpted tabs of Country Mansion® shingles are recommended. Typically, a more muted gray or black design best matches the red brick fronts. • Colonial: Colonial-style homes have a very square and more symmetrical look to them, so the slate-look family of shingles is the best fit. Grand Slate™ and Slateline shingles provide the look of slate at a very affordable price. • Tudor: With their steep- pitched roofs, Tudor homes are great for showing off an elegant roof style. They tend to have muted tones on the front facade accented with brown or gray cross-gables. Camelot and

Slateline shingles are both good choices for Tudor-style homes. • Craftsman: The Craftsman style looks great with wood shake-look shingles in earth tones, such as gray, green or brown. Good bets are Timberline® shingles, a popular wood-shake look, or Grand Sequoia® and Grand Canyon™ shingles, which have a rugged wood-shake and ultradimensional look. • Mediterranean and Italianate: These ornate architectural homes are typically sided with stucco. Roof color choices are warmer browns and terra-cotta hues, as well as some dark grays. The slate/tile

look of Camelot shingles in San Gabriel complements this architectural style well. Grand Sequoia and Grand Canyon shingles, with their warm color palettes, also make a good match. • Ranch houses: Ranch-style homes are characterized by their one-story design with very low-pitched roofs and spreadout floor plans. Grand Sequoia shingles provide a distinct dimensional look to the roof, while Grand Canyon shingles offer an ultradimensional version of the premium wood-shake option. Timberline is also a good choice. For more information, consult the Roof Wizard tab at www.gaf.com

John Deere Sets World Record With Combine Constructed From Canned Food (NAPSI)—It’s a new world record! John Deere’s Project “Can Do” created a full-sized combine made entirely from food—308,448 cans of food and 11,268 bags of food, to be exact. According to Guinness® World Records, that’s a new record for the largest sculpture ever built from canned food. The combine can-food sculpture, which is 60 ft. wide, 80 ft. long, 16 ft. tall and weighs approximately 170 tons, recognizes the vital role America’s farmers play in feeding the world. The sculpture depicts John Deere’s new S-Series Combine harvesting corn and showcases how new equipment and technologies are helping farmers meet the growing world demand for food. The can sculpture was built November 12−17 by a team of 450 John Deere volunteers, including employees, retirees, employee families and friends. The can-food sculpture took more than 1,800 hours to build and contains more than 15 different kinds of canned food, as well as 11,268 bags of popcorn, peas and beans. The sculpture was on display at the John Deere Pavilion in Moline, Ill., until December 12.

“Project ‘Can Do’ gave our employees, retirees and their families a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride in being part of this goodwill effort,” says Nicole Schneider, project co-leader/copywriter for John Deere Ag & Turf Division. “We are all thrilled with the success of this project and that all the food was donated to help those in need. In fact, for every volunteer who worked on the build, one person in need will be fed for one year with all the donated food.” Richard Williamson, project co-leader/ art director for John Deere Ag & Turf Di-

vision, says the project is considered a zero-landfill project with all of the building materials being recycled or reused. In addition, he credits several organizations for supporting the company’s efforts to create the world’s largest can-food sculpture. “The project wouldn’t have been possible without technical help from a number of organizations,” Williamson adds. “Those include Canstruction®, Inc., which organizes canstruction competitions worldwide; the Chicago architectural firm RTKL, Inc., that led the design and construction of the project; and Hy-Vee Food Stores, which helped source and deliver all the cans of food.” During the construction phase of the project, John Deere fans from around the world participated by designing “virtual cans” and submitting them via the John Deere Facebook page. Photographs and videos about the project and its construction can be found at www.Facebook.com/ JohnDeere. On December 12 all the food was donated to River Bend Foodbank, which serves families in the Quad Cities and 22 counties in Iowa and Illinois.

S

taying indoors so much during the winter months can create clutter and mess around the house. But you don’t have to wait until spring to give your house a good spring cleaning, and you don’t have to do an extreme makeover. You can wake up and spruce up a tired-looking home with a few simple cleaning and organizing routines.

Here are some tips and tricks for making your home spring-clean right now, one room at a time.

Furniture Moving Trick

Living Room

Kitchen





Clean out the refrigerator and freezer, making sure to get rid of all expired products and old leftovers. Remove shelving and drawers and wipe them down using mild soapy water.



Tackle your oven, inside and out. If your oven is self-cleaning, set it in the selfcleaning mode. Consult your manual for an estimated cleaning time. Also, make your stovetop and hood shine like new with a quick wipe from a sponge sprayed with Greased Lightning. If your oven is not a self-cleaning appliance, use the cleaning solution to wipe away baked on grease and grime. Remember to make sure the oven is cool before applying the solution.

Window blinds collect dust and dust mites all winter. To clean plastic blinds, add Greased Lightning to tub water. Remove blinds and let them soak in the tub. Clean them with a well-bristled brush, then let them dry and rehang them.

Fresh Ideas for Cleaning



Remove fabric window coverings and clean as needed. Use a feather duster around window frames to remove cobwebs and dust.



Freshen up carpets by sprinkling baking soda on them, letting it sit for 30 minutes, then vacuuming.



Don’t forget to clean your dishwasher, too. Remove trapped food particles from the bottom and around any moving parts. Pour a cup of vinegar into the empty dishwasher and run it to clean the inside.



Carefully wipe the tops and bottoms of ceiling fan blades, which provide a perfect, level surface for dust to collect.



Wipe down the outside of your cabinets, especially around the stove area.



Vacuum and mop the floors, and launder any area rugs.

When you need to move heavy pieces of furniture across uncarpeted floors, fold two clean towels, put one under each end of the furniture piece, then slide it across the floor.

Clean Lampshades Use an adhesive lint roller to get the dust off of fabric lampshades.

Use Smart Cleaners

Bedrooms

Bathroom



Launder bed linens — including dust ruffles, bedspreads and pillow shams.





Move furniture around so you can vacuum underneath and get rid of any dust bunnies that might have accumulated. While you’re at it, try a new furniture arrangement to freshen up the look of the room.

Wipe down and disinfect all fixtures. Remember lighting fixtures, too. Carefully remove glass fixtures and clean with warm, soapy water. Let them dry thoroughly before reattaching.



Now’s a great time to clean out clothes closets. Empty closets to vacuum and dust inside. Then, before putting clothes back, sort through them and get rid of those items that no longer fit or that you don’t wear anymore. You can donate them to a local charity.



Sort through products and discard or recycle old bottles and containers. Get rid of excess clutter in your bathroom cabinets. Remove items from the medicine cabinet and wipe down all surfaces.



Clean blinds, light fixtures and ceiling fans. Wipe smudges off of light switch covers and door frames, too.



You can use Greased Lightning to remove grease, grime, mildew stains and soap scum from your bathroom surfaces, including tubs, sinks, toilets, counters and baseboards.

To get additional tips to spruce up your home, as well as coupons from Greased Lightning, Like them on Facebook, or visit www.glcleans.com.

You don’t need a separate cleaning product for every room in the house. The pros use a few good, general cleaners to tackle multiple types of messes. Learn more about the Greased Lightning family of products at www.glcleans.com.

Keep Your Tools Handy Get a plastic tote tray to carry with you from room to room. Load it with your cleaners, rags, rubber gloves, dusters and a couple of extra trash bags. You’ll be surprised at how much faster the cleaning goes when everything is right where you need it.
