Seeking Eagle Watch volunteers

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy will hold an Eagle Watch Volunteer Training Day on Saturday, Dec. 3, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Lackawaxen. New volunteers will meet at the Upper Delaware Visitor Center (176 Scenic Drive). Then, new and existing volunteers will gather next door at the Inn at Lackawaxen from 10 a.m. to noon. From noon to 1 p.m., attendees will visit the eagle observation areas. Volunteers are trained to monitor and collect data about the large population of eagles that migrate to this region every winter. Volunteers also learn how to help the thousands of people who want to view the eagles in the safest and least intrusive manner, and share “eagle etiquette” tips. Volunteers should be able to withstand cold temperatures and enjoy interacting with the public. Binoculars, spotting scopes, training manuals, data forms and hand warmers are provided. The winter Eagle Watch program runs through January and February, weekends only. Volunteers may cover morning or Q:

I’m planning to do some decorating around my house and will be using a ladder. I had a fall from a ladder in the past, so are there any tips you can give me so that it doesn’t happen again?

A.: Dr. Pete Obeng

Great question. As a physician specializing in occupational medicine and employee healthrelated issues, injuries sustained after falling from a ladder are something I see on a fairly regular basis. Before you get started on a job where you’ll be using a ladder, remember that it’s a tool, and as such, many of the basic safety rules that apply to most tools also apply to the safe use of a ladder. First, be sure to carefully inspect your ladder to make sure it is in good working condition. If your ladder has any missing or loose parts, don’t use it. Also, be sure it stays firm on the ground and doesn’t lean to the side or sway. After checking the ladder out and determining whether it’s okay to use, make sure it’s the right size for the job and read the safety information labels on the ladder. This information will include the Duty Rating, or the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. To ensure safe operation of the ladder, the Duty Rating must be greater than the total weight of the person using the ladder and any tools or supplies placed on the ladder. And, be sure that the ladder is long enough so that you won’t need to stand on the highest rung while completing your task.

Next, when you set up your ladder, be sure to position it on firm, level ground. Make sure there are no slippery conditions present at the base of the ladder or near any of its support points. If you plan to do any work outside, never use a ladder in high winds or storms of any kind. Also, don’t position your ladder in front of a closed door that can open toward the ladder unless you lock or block the door first. Remember that a typical ladder is designed for use by only one person at a time. Some ladders, like trestle ladders, are specifically designed for use by more than one person, but most are safe for only one user. If on the day you plan to use the ladder you are feeling tired or dizzy, stay off the ladder until you are feeling better. When you do get ready to climb on, be sure to wear shoes with a slip-resistant bottom, and stay away from shoes with leather soles. These types of shoes are generally not considered slip-resistant. Many stores and online retailers market and sell slip-resistant shoes, so you should have no problem finding a pair. And, clean the soles of the shoes to maximize traction. Besides finding a proper pair of shoes, concentrate on using proper posture while climbing the ladder, moving slowly and deliberately and avoiding sudden movements. Keep the center of your belt buckle or stomach right in the middle of the ladder’s side rails, and don’t overreach or lean while you’re working—this can cause the ladder to topple sideways. And, never

attempt to move the ladder while you’re standing on it. I always advise my patients to utilize the three point-of-contact climb since it lessens the chance of a fall from the ladder. Using this method, the climber should face the ladder and have two hands and one foot, or two feet and one hand, in contact with the ladder’s steps, rungs, or side rails at all times. That way, even if one limb slips while on the ladder, the person should still be able to stabilize himself or herself to avoid a fall. While using the three point-of-contact climb, a person will not be able to carry any objects in either of their hands, so wear a tool belt or have a friend or relative hand you the materials you’ll need on the ladder while completing the job. Finally, keep in mind that when people fall from ladders, it is often because they moved suddenly, weren’t paying attention to what they were doing, wore the wrong type of shoes, or the ladder was in poor working condition. By following these tips, you should have no problems completing your tasks. Pete Obeng, M.D., M.S.

Encore: Overall Value by Greg Zyla

Special to the Pocono Times

2016 Buick Encore Sport Touring Entry Price: $24,065 Price as Tested: $29,760 This week, we’re driving the 2016 Buick Encore SUV, a neat little compact model that comes in either front drive or all-wheel drive formats. Our tester came in Sport Touring trim and front-wheel drive underpinnings powered by an improved Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI) fuel-delivery system that improves overall performance and efficiency. This 1.4.4-liter SIDI Turbo, available only in the Sport Touring model, puts out 153 horsepower as opposed to the 138-horse “regular injection” 1.4 Turbo that powers the other three available Encores. The engine mates well with a HydraMatic six-speed automatic transmission As for the family of Buick Encores, prices start at the base ($24,065), then to Convenience ($26,355), up to Sport Touring ($26,256), then higher with leather ($28,300) and top-line Premium ($29,795). If you want AWD, add $1,500 to these front-drive prices. Although not a vehicle designed for heavy towing duties or the transfer of up to eight passengers like sibling Enclave, this little Buick is fun to drive, handles quite well and is easy to park in city situations. Now, a bit on Buick history. I’ve mentioned before that some auto enthusiasts may not be aware that Buick is the very first General Motors (GM) brand to appear, and this happened back in 1903. Through the years, Buick has been one of the few American brands that consistently receives high owner satisfaction and reliability honors, most recently back-to-back awards from Kelly Blue Book for “five-year cost to own” stats. Further, four of its five vehicles receive “recommended” check marks from Consumer Reports magazine for 2016, not counting its two new models, Cascada and Envision, which are awaiting more info. Thus, it’s no surprise that Buick survived the corporate General Motors streamlining, where first Oldsmobile and then Pontiac were eliminated from the company lineup. Then Saturn and Hummer disappeared (the later no surprise). Back to the Encore. Inside, Encores cabin is well appointed. Driver and passenger are comfortable in nice seating, while on the safety side you’ll find every Encore on the road sporting a rearview camera, blind-spot warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, dual-zone climate and auto-dimming rearview mirror. You also receive as standard fare Bluetooth,

4G wifi hotspot, input jack, a six-speaker Bose sound system and a USB port interface. Also included is Buick’s IntelliLink with seveninch screen and an interior Quiet Tuning and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology that makes the cabin extra quiet. Our Encore featured power front seats and upscale seating surfaces with leather accents. For $495 more, there’s an enhanced Bose audio system upgrade with Navigation, the latter very easy to use and worth the extra money. New for 2016 are 18-inch aluminum wheels, a winged rear spoiler and a bevy of new colors to choose from. However, wheels and colors aside, it’s the 11 percent more power and near 20 percent more torque (177 lb. ft.) from the turbocharged SIDI four that’s the biggest upside as the less powerful four (just 148 lb. ft. of torque) won’t set any acceleration records. This compact sized Buick features Stabilitrak traction controls, four wheel ABS disc brakes and electronic brakeforce along with solid Five Star government safety ratings. Last year we tested the AWD Encore, and was happy with its performance on snow covered roads for those consumers who live in cold weather geographic regions. There are some Encore drawbacks, however, especially if consumers are looking for an interior that’s spacious. The back seat is tight and cargo room is at a minimum. If you need more room, I recommend driving the Buick Envision when you visit your Buick dealer. You can then better compare all the pros and cons. Fuel mileage for the front drive Encore with the less powerful 138 horse 1.4 delivers 25 city and 33 highway. Our more powerful Sport Touring 1.4 Turbo with start/stop technology (that shuts the engine off when you stop) came in at a very good 26 city and 32 highway. Important numbers include a wheelbase of 100.6 inches, 3,825 lb. curb weight, 18.8 to 48.4 cu. ft of cargo room, 14 gallon fuel tank, and a 36.7 ft. turning circle. In summary, Buick Encore is a fine little SUV that won’t break the bank in the lower priced trims. Although some of the competition offers more room or a few more MPG, Encore delivers outstanding overall value and carries the legendary Buick badge with pride. Noteworthy is a current $1,500 dealer cash incentive, which lowers the price on these leftover Encores. Likes: Looks, more powerful Sport model engine, heritage, fun to drive. Dislikes: SIDI engine not available on lesser priced Encores, back seat room tight for adults.

Halterman’s Toyota of East Stroudsburg donated $50 per new vehicle sold in October to the Hope for Strength breast cancer fund/Pocono Health Foundation. They sold 101 new vehicles and donated $5,050 dollars. With this donation, the founrdation was able to assist 10 breast cancer patients with basic living expenses. The dealership also participated in the fund’s “chemo comfort” campaign by collecting pens, paper and candy. This gives patients going in for chemo treatment something to write with or snack on. This is Halterman’s first year partnering with Hope for Strength. Carole’ Ann F. Bowyer, co-founder of Hope for Strength accepts the check from Keith Halterman, president of Halterman’s.

Christmas at Quiet Valley

Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, 347 Quiet Valley Road in Stroudsburg, will present its 26th annual Old Time Christmas event on Dec. 3-4 and 10-11 with continuous sessions every 15 minutes beginning at 3 p.m., with the last group going out at 7 p.m. Gather around a bonfire while you wait for your visit to the 1800s to begin. Guides in period clothing will lead guests on their journey into the past. Take a peek at the homemade nativity and village scene that was a custom the Moravians began and was soon enthusiastically adopted by the Pennsylvania Germans. Afterwards it’s on to the living Nativity located in the barnyard which includes the Quiet Valley farm animals. Then off to a simple log cabin and the one-room

schoolhouse, where the school marm leads both the musicians and guests in singing their favorite seasonal carols. In the cellar kitchen, you await a visit from the Belschnikel, a traditional Pennsylvania German character who made his rounds during the Christmas season. Admission is $10; $5 for children ages 3-12, with those under 3 admitted free. You will be outside part of the time, so dress warmly. No pets or smoking please. Groups of 12 or more with reservations receive a discounted price any of the four days, when going out between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. It takes about an hour and a half to see all of Old Time Christmas. For more information call 570992-6161, email farm@quietvalley.org, or visit quietvalley.org.

Shop local this holiday season

The holidays are just around the corner, and that means you’ll most likely have some shopping to do in order to cross off the items on your to-do list. Groceries and supplies for Christmas dinner, gifts for family and friends, stylish outfits for the many, many parties on the horizon—getting it all together can be a rather daunting task. Luckily, by shopping close to home, you can save yourself some trouble and a lot of stress. Here are three reasons why shopping local during the holiday season makes sense.

1. No more traffic Staying close to home can help you avoid a lot of frustration during the weeks leading up to the holidays. Nothing is more annoying than the inevitable slow crawl to and from large shopping malls and department stores, or the time spent roaming congested parking lot alleys looking for that elusive free spot. By visiting your local businesses, you’ll skip the aggravating traffic while reducing your gas consumption and carbon footprint in the process. And if you’re lucky enough, you could even run your errands on foot, which provides an added bonus for your health.

2. Premium servi vice Of course, shopping online or at big box stores can save you time and money. However, that pales in comparison to the personalized customer service you’ll receive from your local businesses. A fashion consultant who already knows your tastes and style will help you pick out the perfect dress and matching accessories in a blink of an eye. What’s more, buying local will let you take advantage of exceptional after-sales services. Need to return an item? Not only is the store just around the corner, but the familiar faces behind the counter will also make the process as quick and as hassle-free as possible.

3. Great for the economy Local commerce is at the heart of any region’s economic vitality. When people shop close to home, they keep their community strong and vibrant by creating jobs and enabling services. In other words, by patronizing the businesses in your neighborhood, you’ll be helping to improve the overall quality of your life. So this year, shop smart during the holidays and encourage your locally owned businesses!

PC: For true value and exceptional service, shop local this year!

SUDOKU!

“GrEATEr-ThAN SUdOKU”

For this “Greater-Than Sudoku,” I’m not giving you ANY numbers to start off with! Adjoining squares in the grid’s 3x3 boxes have a greater-than sign (>) telling you which of the two numbers in those squares is larger. Fill in every square with a number from 1–9 using the greater-than signs as a guide. When you’re done, as in a normal Sudoku, every row, column, and 3x3 box will contain the numbers 1–9 exactly one time. (Solving hint: try to look for the 1s and 9s in each box first, then move on to the 2s and 8s, and so on).
