Original Valley PENNYSAVER • June 23, 2012

June 23, 2012 Hello Again, Well, what happened in your world during this past week? In the world of pro golf, Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open. Tiger Woods, the most famous active name in pro golf dropped out of sight. His chances of ever matching Jack Nicklaus seem to be slipping away. Mrs. Simpson was by her husband Webb’s side. She was in her seventh month with their second child. I wonder if someday that child will follow his or her father’s footsteps and become a pro golfer. In our local rural area the scent of fresh-cut hay is everywhere. Farmers are taking advantage of the ‘no rain days’. Driving past an Amish farm, I saw a six-horse team hitched to a gasoline engine baler and wagon. As a boy, farmers in our area only used a team of two horses. Those six-horse teams are truly worth watching. It must be a real task to handle a six-horse, side-by-side team. I drove past a farmer who was outstanding in his field. According to a news column in a Schenectady County daily newspaper, “The Daily Gazette,” Forage Dairy U.S.A., which operates a greek yogurt production plant in Fulton County, plans to spend $120 million building a 188,000 square foot addition. It appears Forage sales as of December 31st amounted to $141.7 million, making it the fourth largest producer of greek yogurt in the United States. Dairy production is necessary for yogurt. For our area, this good news is a win/win situaton. Summertime weather sprinkled with our share of rain seems to be poking its nose into our area. Soon school children will be released for summer vacation. Remember those wonderful summer days when we were young? Every summer friends and relatives from New York City would invade our country home. Dad would usually wallpaper a guest room, paint the porch floor. Mom, with the help of a neighbor lady, Mrs. Roberts, would prepare meals, polish and shine the furniture, carpet sweep the front room carpet, re-mop the floors, and polish the white and black keys on the old square-type grand piano. If I remember correctly—one summer we had 12 relatives and guests at one time with our family of five. The house seemed more like a hotel. You know the old saying—17 mouths to feed. The guests always brought along a bottle or two of Irish whiskey. Dad, who claimed he didn’t care for that stuff, always managed to take a nip or two. Maybe it was for his stomach’s sake. One day when Mrs. Roberts was helping with the housework, Mom prepped a large dish of scalloped potatoes with ham—a real family favorite. Little Pete (Wayne) Roberts was there with his mother. At lunchtime, Mom served the scalloped potatoes. She noticed that little Pete seemed to really enjoy his first two servings and asked, “Pete would you like some more scalloped potatoes?” Back came a quiet reply, “Nope, don’t want no more ‘galloped’ potatoes. Full ta the ears.” Pete eventually grew up, leaving Middlefield, spending over 20 years in the U.S. Army. I wonder, when eating army chow, did he ever remember Mrs. Lee’s ‘galloped’ (scalloped) potatoes? For me, that was many, many years ago and I do remember. Why do we all seem to remember some special dish our mothers prepared? Last night I located a yellow box of books in our library. A complete set of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” books. I’m

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • June 23, 2012

sure we all remember “Little House on the Prairie.” I spent a pleasant evening reading “The Farmer Boy,” one out of the set of eight books. Part of my book review would include, “Just plain good reading.” Now—to round out the “What happened this past week?”, I’m sure you will enjoy learning that “Cow Plop Bingo to Return on July 7th” was the front page headline on the Little Falls daily newspaper, “The Times.” It appears a Cow Plop Bingo event will take place at the German Flatts town park on Saturday, July 7th. If you intend to visit German Flatts on July 7th, it might be advisable to not wear open-toed footwear. Now for a stupid question: Mom asked her teenage daughter, “Have you seen the broom?” I am contemplating a change in my career. Every week I have to dream up something to write about in “Hello Again.” Writing each week always creates some troublesome thoughts. Should I say this?—Maybe I shouldn’t. Should I mention democrats, republicans, Protestants, Catholics, or Jews? Is this cute, funny, or corny? What about our president or his wife who said, “This is the first time I have ever been proud of this country.” She said it publicly not once, but twice. I’m grateful the boys and girls who gave their lives for this country didn’t hear her message. Should I have mentioned that? So you see the problem “Hello Again” is creating in my old age? Maybe I will become a weather predictor. Every day all I would have to say is “It may rain today or again, it may not.” Either way I could not be wrong. On the other hand, if I do not predict it is going to rain on your daughter’s wedding day and it does, you might, in a fit of anger, have some choice words pointed in my direction. Maybe I will keep on, keeping on with “Hello Again.” Should I change the name from “Hello Again” to “Still Here.” Some critics might suggest, “That’s enough again.” “Who taught you that swear word?” Tommy’s mother asked after the youngster blurted out a loud curse. “The Easter Bunny did,” he answered. “You said the Easter Bunny? When?” “Last Easter when he fell over your laundry basket on his way downstairs with the candy eggs.” It’s always easier to learn from a good teacher. The Bible says, “Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of the Lord.” If you have questions or doubts about your life or relationship with the Lord, why not try visiting a local Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church? Last night as we sat near the beautiful Mohawk River enjoying a couple of hot dogs with potato salad, a couple of birds were flying overhead. A squirrel was racing back and forth on the mowed lawn. We saw a couple of fish flip their tails in the river and return to the safety of their world. The river as a mirror was reflecting the trees on the south side and the white clouds overhead. It seemed the Good Lord was sending a special message. I am here. Enjoy today and I will still be here tomorrow, too. God must love you in a special way. Why would he allow you to live in our wonderful area if he didn’t?

Cherry Valley celebrates Bicentennial Day

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin By all accounts the Cherry Valley Bicentennial celebration was a huge success. “I think it was a 100 percent success!” declared Cherry Valley Mayor Jeff Stiles. “We have had so many good comments, thank yous, etc.,” added Dorothy Johnson, Cherry Valley Clerk-Treasurer. The Village of Cherry Valley was incorporated on June 4, 1812, and a 200-year celebration commemorating that event took place on June 9, 2012. The event began at 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast and 'Car Cruise-in' with Big Al at the Cherry Valley Firehouse. “The pancake breakfast turnout was the best we have had in several years,” commented Johnson. All day long there were games, crafters, vendors, food, bands and raffles taking place at the old Alden The Cherry Valley Fire Dept. proudly marched Field School and the Village Park. “All of the events along with numerous other fire fighting compa- were very well attended,” said Mayor Stiles. About nies that attended the Bicentennial Parade. 30 vendors showed up to take advantage of the Photos by Elizabeth A. Tomlin event. The newly crowned Otsego Dairy Princess, Jessica Hadlock, was on hand with members of her Court to meet people and tell them about the importance of three dairy products a day for a healthy diet. “I want to help promote the dairy industry and the agricultural industry,” Hadlock said. A Bi-Centennial Parade, organized by Scott Flint, Marty Fields, and with the help of the whole Cherry Valley Fire Department, kicked off at 6 p.m., with bands, floats, and many other fire companies marching. Senator James Seward and NYS Assemblyman Marc Butler also attended the festivities. “This was all done by many, many citCherry Valley - Springfield Marching Patriots were a treat to izens, organizations, and businesses both the eyes and ears with their dynamic performance. donating their time and money,” said Johnson. “Bi-Centennial committee members put in many, many hours of hard work- and fun- planning and organizing this event, but without the help of all of our residents, it would not have happened.” Johnson said a Basket Raffle took place, “with baskets donated by many generous individuals and organizations.” The evening was marked by a 45 minute firework display attended by a very large crowd and ended with a dance at the Community Center with music provided by the Redeemers, from Rhinebeck, NY.

Herkimer County Humane Society Mutt Strut The 16th Annual Mutt Strut was held on Sunday, June 3, on the campus of Herkimer County Community College. Through the efforts of all our volunteers, sponsors and walkers, the shelter raised almost $10,000, with all the proceeds going to the care of our animals. What a wonderful turnout we had. As always, the Mutt Strut brought back some of our former “residents” for many happy reunions. Our expanded vendor tent was a hit this year and our water stops were very welcome. Up on Stage was back to keep the party moving. We had raffles of several different baskets donated by area businesses and supporters. Please check our summer newsletter for a complete list of all donators. We would like thank all our STRUTTERS who came with their dogs or perhaps walked one of our shelter dogs. We could not do this without you. Also, we would like to thank all of our volunteers including board members and the members of our newly organized volunteer group. If you are interested in volunteering, please call the shelter at 315866-3255. Listed below are the top finishers and the total they raised in three categories: Teams: Team Russ $606; Team M&M $296; Team Yoda $165

Individuals: Lorraine Kolwaite - $285; Pat Spadaro $200; Jessica Button - $189 Students (Under 16): Isabelle VanPatten (14) - $200; Zane Synenki (4) $75; Aubrey Banner (5) - $55 Mark your calendars for the 17th Annual Mutt Strut. We will also be celebrating our 100th Birthday in 2013! Hope you can be a part of this very special milestone. The present location of the Herkimer County Humane Society in Fort Herkimer was purchased in 1962. The facility consists of a shelter house, outdoor exercise kennels, a play yard and the main shelter. The main building contains shelter offices, cat rooms and dog kennels. The house is used for Society office space, meeting rooms, laundry facilities, animal grooming, emergency animal rescue holding room and more storage. The Humane Society has grown quite a bit since its humble beginnings. Our board of directors consists of eleven members, all volunteers who contribute in some way to keep things running. The Humane Society is a non-profit organization with a 501 C 3 designation -- NOT a county run agency. We depend almost entirely on volunteers and community support.

Whatchamacallits In the days when butter was made at home on the farm, patterned stamps were used to make it more presentable at the table — or, you might say, to make a favorable impression on guests. Willis “Skip” Barshied’s butter stamps, shown here, are typical of the home-use butter stamps of the 1800s. Butter stamps were also used in commerce. After the butter was worked and salted, dairies usually molded it into blocks or rounds to be measured, stored and sold. Common butter mold sizes were 1/2, one and two pounds. These blocks were often impressed with various designs. Some imprints were solely for decoration, while others identified the butter maker. Having an accurate weight

was important to consumers. If a customer paid for one pound of butter they wanted to get one pound. Many butter molds were adjustable so that the amount of butter could be increased or decreased to get the correct amount.

This did not stop dishonest merchants and dairies from selling underweight rolls of butter. The problem became so bad that in 1893 the California state legislature passed a law making it a misdemeanor to sell underweight rolls of butter.

Collecting by Larry Cox TV lamp Q: When my family bought our first TV during the early 1950s, it was essential that it also had a TV light that provided illumination, but not so much that it distracted from the sharpness of the picture. The lamp we had featured the image of a black panther. I still have it, and before I throw or give it away, please advise me. — Peggy, Naperville, IL A: I, too, remember the old TV lamps. The one I recall featured a design of two Siamese cats, probably inspired by Si and Am

from “Lady and the Tramp.” Most TV lamps sell in the $25 to $35 range, but as with most collectibles there are always exceptions. Recently I saw a “cowboy and horse” TV lamp from the 1950s priced at $150 in a fancy Scottsdale, AZ, shop. Q: I recently found a “Wrinkle Proof” iron with stand, model NE909. It is operational, and I wonder how much it is worth. — John, Albuquerque, NM A: I always hesitate to answer questions about older irons, since when I do, it almost always trigCont. Next Page

gers dozens of others. So before you dust off the iron at your house and contact me, read this response carefully. Most “sad irons” are selling in the $15 to $25 range. Although there is interest in some of the older, more unusual irons, demand for them is not as hot as it was several years ago before our economy tanked. David Irons is an expert and might be able to help you. Contact him at 223 Covered Bridge Road, Northhampton, PA 18067;; and 610-262-9335. Irons has written what I believe is the defini-

tive book about vintage irons, “Irons by Irons,” which can be ordered directly from him. Q: I have an original one sheet of “Rebel Without a Cause” that I got from our little neighborhood theater in 1955. What do you think it is worth? I have been offered $1,000 for it. — Bill, St. Charles, MO A: L’Imagerie Gallery in Hollywood is offering one for sale priced at $4,000. Keep in mind that condition is extremely important. If there are rips, tears or stains ... need I go any further?

Did you know? Though ceiling fans are most associated with warm-weather seasons, most can be effective throughout the winter months as well, helping circulate warm air throughout a room in much the same way they circulate cool air during the warmer weather. Most of today’s fans have a switch near the motor housing that alters the direction in which the fan’s blades turn. When a ceiling fan is used in the summer, its blades push the air downward, moving cool air around the room. The air blowing around the room is what

Tips for decorating with stronger colors

cools people within the room. When the blades’ direction is altered, the blades then push the air upward toward the ceiling. This drives the hot air, which typically rises to the top, down toward the edges of the room. This helps circulate warm air throughout a room, making for more even heating. What’s more, this improved heat circulation helps combat window sweating that results from condensation on the glass when hot air is not effectively circulated throughout a home.

(NAPSA) — When it comes to decorating, color experts are predicting that homeowners will be seeking out stronger colors in their search for intensity. Seeking sensation The bold choice to turn to vibrant, optimistic colors is twofold: a search for euphoria for some and, for others, a sense of oneself. According to PPG Pittsburgh Paints color expert Dee Schlotter, for many people, intensity is a survival strategy in times of crisis. “For some, it means seeking out extremes of sensation, rebelling against the bland existence that comes with cynicism and disenchantment. For others, it means ‘unplugging’ in order to reconnect with a life they feel is fleeting,” added Schlotter. Sensation seekers will go for colors that stir the senses and set them in motion, amping up the chromatic density of their lives. Expect their spaces to be full of strong contrasts — heavy and weightless, shadow and light, hot and cold. On the other hand, some individuals will use strong color as a way to turn inward and unplug. Expect

them to opt for quiet, understated palettes accented by deep, rich colors in order to create the space they need to take time to relax. If you are thinking of taking the leap to strong, deep color, here are some tips: • If you appreciate deep, rich colors outside your home — whether in the clothes you wear or when you see these colors in restaurants or other people’s homes — then you will probably also like them in your own home. • Consider an accent wall. This is a great way to get a smaller taste of strong color while still adding interest to the room. • Test first. Use a large test sheet and a “time test” — view your color in all light: morning, noon and night. Live with it for a few days to make sure you love it. • Don’t let timidity hold you back. Recognize that there’s only one life to live and there’s no time to waste. If not now, then when?

Little Friends Nursery School graduation by Jessica Ferguson For 48 years, Little Friends Nursery School has changed the lives of so many children. On Friday, June 15, at the Reformed Church of Canajoharie they celebrated another wonderful year of stu-

dents. It was a very happy night with a few tears for the little friends who would be going to pre-k or kindergarten next year. We all enjoyed a wonderful dinner with cake and a beautiful ceremony hosted by

the beloved Mrs. Lois Comins, with a few surprises from her granddaugher, Mrs. Jessica Ferguson. To celebrate so many years of loving and caring service we had a special guest

alumni, Kirsten Lennon, come and say a few words. Kirsten was an alumni from the class of 1984. It was a wonderful night and we are so proud of all our little friends.

Herkimer County HealthNet identifies community making efforts toward a healthy living HERKIMER, NY — One community at a time, Herkimer County HealthNet continues to support its mission; to promote the well-being of individuals who live, work, play, and learn and Herkimer County. HealthNet’s wellness committee recently visited the Village of Poland and Town of Russia after the committee identified that the community has made many efforts toward improving the health of its residents. Adam Hutchinson, Executive Director of Herkimer County HealthNet said, “This community serves as a model as a rural community that is making a commitment to the health and well-being of its residents on multiple levels. This collaborative effort among various organizations in their area is crucial to our mission.” Hutchinson also mentioned that many communities in Herkimer County are making an effort through various grants, but this particular community is showing improvements through many aspects. Some of the projects taking place in the Poland area include the following activities: • Havers Nice N Easy is currently working with HealthNet and Cornell Cooperative Extension with increasing the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables

as part of a grocery /convenience store project through the Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work, and Play program. • The Poland Central School District Cafeteria has a Fresh Express Food Center for its middle and high school students, which was partially funded by HealthNet’s Rural Health Network grant. • The Town of Russia recently made improvements to its playground through HealthNet’s Creating Healthy Places grant and is participating in the development of HealthNet’s Trail Guide. Just this year, the Town made the playground smoke-free. Herkimer County HealthNet’s Wellness Committee meets every month and is working together with communities to further support their healthy efforts. For more information about Herkimer County HealthNet please call 315-8671499 or visit www. HealthyPlacesInHerkim erCounty.

To Your Good Health by Paul G. Donohue, M.D. Is it a migraine? Dear Dr. Donohue: I have had headaches since I was 12. I am now 32. I hear people talk about their migraine headaches and wonder if I might have them. What makes a headache a migraine headache? I take aspirin for my headaches. It helps, but not all that much. Are there special medicines for migraines? — K.D. Answer: Yes, there are special migraine medicines, so it is important to determine if your headaches are true migraine headaches. Some of the distinguishing attributes of migraines are the following: They begin before age 40. More women have them than men. The headache starts out with minor pain but often progresses to intense and incapacitating pain. The word used to describe it is “throbbing.” Nausea and vomiting frequently accompany it. In a little more than half of migraine patients, the headache is on one side only. Bright lights and

noise intensify the pain. Sufferers try to find a dark, quiet room where they can lie down until the headache goes, and that can take four to 72 hours. Migraine sufferers can identify triggers that bring on their headaches. Stress, missing a meal, too much or too little sleep, menstrual periods, bright lights, certain odors like cigarette smoke or perfume and fatigue are some of the things that start a migraine. Alcohol — beer and red wine in particular — chocolate, some cheeses and cured meats like hot dogs, sausage and bacon are triggers for some. Aspirin, Tylenol, Midrin and naproxen alleviate mild migraines. Cafergot is a migraine standby. A group of newer drugs are especially good for migraine sufferers. Seven of them are available. Some names are Imitrex, Maxalt and Zomig. Imitrex comes as a nasal spray and as an injection, administered like insulin. Zomig also comes as a nasal spray. This is a

godsend for those who become sick to the stomach along with the headache. Not all migraine headaches produce all the signs and symptoms I mentioned, but if you have more than two of these characteristic symptoms, it’s a good bet that you suffer from migraines. Dear Dr. Donohue: Many of my friends take aspirin for the prevention of a heart attack or stroke. I decided I should join them. Is this a wise move? — K.H. Answer: Aspirin and similar drugs are the rule for prevention of heart attacks and certain strokes. The aspirin dose in greatest use is 81 mg — low-dose aspirin. Three different regimens for the prevention of stroke are acceptable: Plavix, aspirin or aspirin combined with sustained-release dipyridamole. The aspirindipyridamole combination comes in one tablet called Aggrenox. Note that these are for prevention of second heart attacks and strokes.

For the prevention of a first heart attack or stroke, patients should consult their doctor, who will evaluate each pa-

tient’s risk. Based on that, the doctor will recommend a regimen that’s appropriate. It’s not a good idea to self-medicate

with any medicine. (c) 2012 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Be an energy efficient host this summer Energy efficiency tips from NYSERDA for hosting summer guests Summer is here and that means you will probably be hosting more visitors at your home. Whether you’re entertaining guests for a short period or an extended summer stay, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers these tips for energy-efficient hosting. • Illuminate with ENERGY STAR®. As you start increasing use of your outdoor space, buy ENERGY STAR qualified outdoor lighting for your porch, deck or patio. Making the change from traditional lighting to ENERGY STAR lighting can result in an energy savings of 75 percent or more. • Microwave it or grill it. Can’t stand the heat in the kitchen? Use your microwave oven as much as possible in the summer rather than your regular oven. Microwave ovens use around 50 percent less energy than conventional ovens. You can also fire up the grill and dine al fresco! Your house will stay cooler and you’ll save energy. • Check the date. If your current refrigerator was made before 1993, replace it with a new ENERGY STAR model which uses half the amount of energy. If you have a fridge from the 1980s, replace it with an ENERGY STAR qualified model and save over $100 per year on your utility bills. • Keep it at zero. To save energy, keep the temperature of your freezer at 0°F. • Curtains closed. Block out heat by keeping blinds or curtains closed during the day, especially on south-facing windows. • Change the way you dry. If possible, dry clothes on a clothes line. If you use your dryer, try to do full loads, or reduce drying time for partial loads. • Keep your lint trap clean. Remember to clean the lint trap before every laundry load; it’s an important energy saver and one of the easiest things you can do to increase drying efficiency. This step can save you up to $34 each year. • Think early and late. Use ovens, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or late at night when it’s generally cooler outside.

Watering tomatoes and other July gardening tips by Charlie Nardozzi, Horticulturist and Leonard Perry, UVM Extension Horticulturist Proper watering of tomatoes, controlling slugs, and rejuvenating spring annuals are some of the gardening activities for this month. Dark leathery spots on the blossom end of tomatoes is likely to be a condition called “blossom end rot” that’s caused by uneven watering. Mulch will help moderate the fluctuating moisture lev-

els that nature provides, and it’s not too late to spread some around your plants. Mulch will help the soil from drying quickly after wet weather — another fluctuation that may lead to this disease in tomatoes as well as peppers, squash, and even watermelon. Also, make sure with a soil test that both the pH and calcium levels of your soil are correct. Coffee grounds, diatomaceous earth, iron phosphate bait (use cau-


tion or not at all if pets roam the area), crushed egg shells, and even raw sheep’s wool can deter slugs and snails. Spread any of these materials in a ring around individual plants. Wrap pots with copper tape to keep slugs from crawling up. One of the more common controls is simply to place saucers of beer among your plants, which attract the slugs and in which they drown. Or simply place boards in your garden, under

which they’ll hide by day and can be found and gathered. Pansies, lobelia, petunias, and some other cool season annuals can go into a slump in midsummer with the heat. To rejuvenate them, cut back the stems by one half and apply liquid fertilizer when you water to bring them back and they will start blooming again for late summer and fall. Many of the newer cultivars (cultivated varieties) of petunias, however, keep on blooming. Plus, they are “self cleaning”, meaning the old flowers just wither and drop off, so you won’t need to cut them back as was common with older cultivars. Many of the newer selections of annuals have been bred to require a highly fertile soil, so make sure you apply plenty. If they stop blooming, or have fewer blooms, this may be the reason. Fertilize regularly

according to label directions, at least weekly. If using an organic solution such as liquid seaweed or compost tea, you may need to fertilize with every watering. Take just one-half hour every day to inspect the garden and pull weeds. Weeds really do sprout overnight and by next week they’ll be towering over your tomatoes and annual flowers. A visit to the garden before work, or as soon as you get home, can keep the weeds in check. Strawberry plants are actively growing and new runners are spreading everywhere in mid-summer. Remove runners to keep plants spaced according to the method you’re using so plants will put their energy into producing future fruit instead of new runners. Left alone, a bed will turn into a mass of foliage and few berries. Usually everbearers are planted in

hills, with runners removed. June-bearing cultivars are usually planted in rows, with runners kept within the beds and removed from the paths. At the first sign of powdery mildew on phlox, bee balm, and other susceptible plants, treat with Serenade or other labeled fungicide, such as one with potassium bicarbonate (relative of baking soda). Spray plants every two weeks, thoroughly wetting the foliage. Birds love blueberries as much as we do, so protect the fruit with netting. Use stakes to suspend the netting over the shrub so birds won’t reach the berries. Secure the netting to the ground to prevent birds from sneaking in. Get your cover in place before the berries turn ripe.
