Plan Planto tosave savehistoric historicrailroad railroad station moves forward Gettysburg Borough Council members have approved the sale of the historic Gettysburg Railroad Station to the Gettysburg Foundation. The foundation plans to maintain the site on behalf of the Gettysburg National Military Park until the U.S. Congress approves its addition to the park. At that point, the foundation will donate the station to the park. President Abraham Lincoln arrived at the station on Nov. 18, 1863, for a onenight stay prior to the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, where he delivered what has become known as “The Gettysburg Address.” The station also was used as a hospital during the Civil War. The Gettysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau currently uses the station as a visitor’s center, and that arrangement will continue for now. Funds for the foundation’s purchase came from a grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, as well as financial support from the Tawani Foundation and local resident William E. Aldrich.

Lancaster County marks national milestone Lancaster County is the first county in the nation to preserve 100,000 acres of farmland. The historic 100,000th acre is a part of Bruce and Patricia Lefever’s “Sego Sago” farm near Manheim. The Lefevers are the sixth generation of the family to live on the farm. Noting Lancaster County’s role as the No. 1 agriculture producer in Pennsylvania and No. 10 in the nation, Lancaster County Commissioner Scott Martin says preserving the region’s agricultural heritage is key to addressing land use in the county. Preserved farmland cannot be developed for commercial or residential use by its current — or future — owners. l

ENERGYmatters Spotting energy myths, scams By B r i a n S l o b o da

Cooperative Research Network

A QUICK internet search reveals many ways to save energy around your home — and a lot of them are too good to be true. Scams generally center around misstatements of science or confusion over utility programs. That’s why it’s always a good idea to call your electric cooperative to verify or ask questions about any energysaving program you see advertised. A popular scam involves a device that promises to save energy without requiring you to make any changes in behavior, turn anything off or adjust the thermostat. People who sell these “little boxes� often claim outrageous energy savings — sometimes as much as 30 percent or more ― couched around legitimate utility terms like power conditioning, capacitors and power factor. The bogus marketing spiel usually goes something like this: The model being sold will control alternating current power factor and reduce electric bills. It will condition your power and make appliances last longer. It uses no power and has no moving parts. It will make motors in your home run better. Accompanying materials often caution “your utility doesn’t want you to know about this device.� Actually, what your cooperative doesn’t want is for you to be taken advantage of by these claims. What’s the reality? While electric cooperatives use various components to correct power factor for commercial and industrial consumers, power factor correction is not a concern with homes. Engineers at the University of TexasAustin concluded that one of the units could produce no more than a 0.06 percent reduction in electric use in an average house. The Electric Power Research Institute, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based non6

PENN

LINES • JANUARY 2014

profit research consortium made up of electric utilities, including electric cooperatives, recently tested one of the most popular residential power factor correction products and found that it generated average power savings of just 0.23 percent — far from the 30 percent claimed by its manufacturer. At that rate, it would take a typical homeowner more than 70 years to recoup his or her investment. In short, these devices are nothing more than ordinary capacitors employed in electronic circuits to store energy or differentiate between high- and low-frequency signals. Companies selling these products change names quickly and often, and move from town to town. There are several questions you should ask a sales representative when reading an ad for the next magical cure-all: Does the product violate the laws of science? For example, does it claim to be capable of “changing of the molecular structure ‌ to release never-before tapped power?â€? If true, the invention would quickly be sold in every store across the nation, not marketed through fliers or a poorly designed website. Was the product tested by an inde-

pendent group? If the performance of the product was not tested and certified by a lab or entity not connected to the company selling it, be very skeptical. Don’t allow a salesman to verify claims. One popular trick is to hook up the little box to a motor and a power meter. When turned on, the meter records a drop in what appears to be power consumption. This is a trick — it is not the same type of meter hanging on the side of your home. Is it too good to be true? If so, it probably is. A video getting play on the internet shows a consumer reporter for a television station testing one of these little boxes. By looking at electric bills before and after installation, he concludes the device is a good buy. However, an excessively hot or unusually cool day can cause one month’s electric bill to run significantly higher or lower than the previous month. Wise consumers always ask to see electric use for the same month from the previous year(s), not the previous month, and factor in weather anomalies for any savings claims. l Brian Sloboda is a program manager specializing in energy efficiency for the Cooperative Research Network, a service of the Arlington, Va.-based National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

Clogged, Backed—up Septic System…Can anything Restore It? Dear Darryl

DEAR DARRYL: My home is about 10 years old, and so is my septic system. I have always taken pride in keeping my home and property in top shape. In fact, my neighbors and I are always kidding each other about who keeps their home and yard nicest. Lately, however, I have had a horrible smell in my yard, and also in one of my bathrooms, coming from the shower drain. My grass is muddy and all the drains in my home are very slow.

My wife is on my back to make the bathroom stop smelling and as you can imagine, my neighbors are having a field day, kidding me about the mud pit and sewage stench in my yard. It’s humiliating. I called a plumber buddy of mine, who recommended pumping (and maybe even replacing) my septic system. But at the potential cost of thousands of dollars, I hate to explore that option. I tried the store bought, so called, Septic treatments out there, and they did Nothing to clear up my problem. Is there anything on the market I can pour or flush into my system that will restore it to normal, and keep it maintained? Clogged and Smelly – Erie, PA

THE INSTANT United Airlines Flight 93 met its tragic end in a field in Somerset County on Sept. 11, 2001, an enduring bond was forged. Now that relationship between the families who lost loved ones on the ill-fated flight and the residents of Somerset County, who banded together, determined to ease the families’ suffering as much as humanly possible, has expanded to include the crew of the USS Somerset. The USS Somerset, a U.S. Navy transport ship honoring the 40 passengers and crew of the downed airliner, is scheduled to be commissioned at Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, on March 1. More than 1,200 residents from the Somerset County area, along with the families of the crew members and passengers of Flight 93, are expected to join

Som the USS Somerset crew in the ceremony that officially marks the inclusion of the ship into the nation’s naval force (tickets are required). As the ship sails from Penn’s Landing, it will carry with it numerous artifacts from Somerset County — artifacts gathered with love and respect to honor those who died there, and the community that rallied around the grieving families. From the steel in the bow stem (the foremost part of the ship where it cuts through the water) and the wood floor in the ship’s museum area to a special time capsule on board, parts of Somerset County will remain with the ship as long as it exists. Somerset County Commissioner


erset John Vatavuk, a member of Somerset Rural Electric Cooperative, has been working closely with the ship’s builder — Huntington Ingalls Industries — and U.S. Navy officials since 2008 in an effort to encourage the connection between the community, the families of Flight 93 and the USS Somerset. “It’s a real honor to have a ship named after this county, to be involved in a ship that will honor the heroes of Flight 93 and their families,” Vatavuk states.

It was a very impressive sight.” The bow stem was shipped to an Avondale shipyard near New Orleans, where construction on the ship, which will be used in naval and humanitarian relief operations around the world, began. The Vatavuks went to the ship’s keellaying ceremony in December 2009 at the Avondale shipyard, where the commissioner spoke about his quest to include steel from the Somerset County dragline into the USS Somerset. He also spoke at the ship’s next milestone, the christening ceremony in July 2012, also held at the shipyard. Vatavuk had worked to gather artifacts for the mast stepping box (the ship’s time capsule), which were displayed in a shadow box at the christening ceremony. They included a bottle of Somerset County maple syrup, a key to the borough of Somerset, a fire department patch from the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department (the first responders to arrive at the crash site), a sheriff’s patch, and photos and biographies

While at the christening ceremony for the USS Somerset, Vatavuk spoke with one of the ship’s officers who suggested that Vatavuk collect road signs from Somerset County to display on the ship so the crew has a direct, constant connection to Somerset County. All 50 of Somerset County’s municipalities provided a street sign denoting a street name of special significance to that community; Vatavuk purchased a Flight 93 Memorial Highway (Route 219) sign and donated it from the county. The signs hang in the ship’s hallways and rooms as an ever-present reminder to crew members of their connection to Somerset County. Vatavuk also had a county map framed to hang on board the ship. One of the unique aspects of the USS Somerset is its Flight 93 museum. As part of PHOTO BY ELENA PENCE/U.S. NAVY

Vatavuk began his efforts to provide parts of Somerset County to the shipbuilding efforts in 2008 after a local resident suggested to him perhaps there was a way some local materials could be incorporated into the USS Somerset, then in the planning stages. “I thought that was a great idea,” Vatavuk recalls. “A month or two later, I heard the big dragline (an inactive excavating machine with an attached steam shovel) that had held the giant American flag that you see in so many of the early photos from the crash site was going to be scrapped because it was too expensive to maintain as part of the national monument. … It turned out to be the exact type of carbon steel that was needed in the ship’s bow stem.” The scrap company in Reading, Pa., that was planning to dismantle the dragline authorized a demolition company from Ohio to take 25 tons of steel from the bucket and haul it to Newport News, Va., to the Northrup Grumman plant to be smelted. “In the summer of 2008, my wife and I went to Virginia and watched the Navy smelt (the scrap metal),” Vatavuk says. “They turned it into molten steel, and then they poured it into the mold for the

IN HONOR OF THESE: The commanding officer of the USS Somerset, Capt. Thomas Dearborn, reads the names of the heroes of United Airlines Flight 93 at the 2013 ceremony marking the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, crash in Somerset County.

Twenty sugar maple trees were salvaged, cut and milled for floor boards, and installed as the museum’s floor (a ship typically does not include wood floors, but an exception was made in this case by the Secretary of the Navy). Among other items, the ship’s museum includes a bench made from local cherry, a shovel used at the groundbreaking for the Flight 93 National Memorial Visitor Center, a fire hose from the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department and a photo taken by Somerset Rural Electric Cooperative member Val McClatchey immediately after the crash showing smoke from the crash rising over a neighbor’s barn. It is only fitting, Vatavuk says, that these items will remain with the ship as long as it sails for the U.S. Navy. “Somerset County residents are committed to, and have compassion for, the families of Flight 93,” Vatavuk explains. “That will never change.”

USS Somerset The USS Somerset — the U.S. Navy’s ninth San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship — is named in honor of the passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93, whose actions on Sept. 11, 2001, prevented terrorist hijackers from reaching their intended target, forcing the plane to crash in Somerset County. The ship joins the USS New York and the USS Arlington, also named in honor of those lost during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The USS Somerset is 684 feet long with a beam of 105 feet; four diesel engines produce 41,600 shaft horsepower, propelling the ship at speeds in excess of 22 knots (25 miles per hour). Weighing 24,900 tons, the $1.2-billion ship features a flight deck that can accommodate CH-46 helicopters and MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, and a well deck that can launch and recover landing craft and amphibious vehicles. The ship is capable of embarking a landing force of more than 1,000 Marines. Its regular crew numbers between 350 and 400. The ship’s keel was laid down on Dec. 11, 2009, at Northrop Grumman’s Avondale shipyard in New Orleans with ship construction by Huntington Ingalls Industries. It was launched in April 2012 and christened on July 28, 2012. Her commissioning on March 1, 2014, marks the entrance of the man-of-war into the country’s naval force. Although it will be homeported in San Diego, the commissioning is scheduled for Philadelphia because of the ship’s connection to Pennsylvania. In addition to its primary focus of supporting the U.S. Navy, the USS Somerset also will undertake humanitarian relief operations around the world during disasters.

Many Somerset County residents feel a connection to the Flight 93 families, but Bob Kirst, president of Global SFC Valve Corporation, headquartered in Somerset, also has a unique connection to the USS Somerset. His company provided several hundred valves installed in the propulsion area to enable power to be transferred to the USS Somerset’s propellers, as well as part of the used to transfer fuel from a delivery ship to the receiving ship. Kirst’s company, which is dedicated 100 percent to providing materials for the U.S. Navy shipbuilding industry, has 42 full-time employees, along with two full-time U.S. Navy inspectors onsite five days a week. He has invited all of his employees (plus one guest per employee) to attend the commissioning ceremony in Philadelphia on March 1. “I want everyone to be able to see the big picture,” he says. “For the majority of my employees, this will be the first time they get to be up close and personal with a war ship that includes critical material that we produce.

Although the U.S. government pays for the commissioning ceremony itself, most of the other ceremonies associated with the commissioning are paid for through tax-deductible contributions raised by the Navy League of the United States.

A few days after the Sept. 11, 2001, crash, the community organized a memorial ceremony for the families. “We had to close the streets of Somerset,” he recalls. “Literally thousands of citizens gathered to embrace the families.

It is still mind-boggling to think what happened here.” Despite the sheer madness of having a terrorist attack shatter the quiet countryside of Somerset County, local residents quickly rallied to embrace the families of the 40 passengers and crew members who died. “There has been an extraordinary bond forged between the families of the heroes and the county,” Cook notes. “That has been expressed to me countless times by the families. We opened our hearts to each other. … At the christening ceremony, I said to one of the family members that I was glad to hear the ship had a peaceful use as well as a military function.

Felt lost his eldest brother, Edward, who was 41 at the time of the crash and living in Matawan, N.J. “The lives of the residents of Somerset County were immeasurably changed by this event, just as ours were,” Felt, who is a resident of Remsen, N.Y., notes. “They opened their homes to us. They made us feel Somerset County is our second home.” Once the national memorial was planned and constructed, family members continued to be involved in the annual memorial ceremonies at the crash site, as well as the ongoing efforts to personalize the USS Somerset. “Mary Jo Myers (the wife of Gen. Richard Myers, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the ship’s sponsor) has been working closely with the Families of Flight 93 to create a quilt,” Felt explains. “Each member of the crew and each passenger will have a square. The squares will be sewn together and quilted. That quilt will be displayed on the ship.” Each family was asked to personalize

1994 WITH PEAKS under 2,000 feet and an average annual snowfall of 30 to 40 inches, Pennsylvania may not match the conditions of mountains in Colorado or Vermont, but don’t be misled. Pennsylvania’s ski resorts have an unbeatable devotion to customer service, as well as some pretty steep grades that make the rugged terrain of rural Pennsylvania a match for novice and pro skiers alike. Rural Pennsylvania offers multiple choices of places to ski spread out across the state. Most have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in modern snow-making and chairlift systems, enabling them to survive in a state that doesn’t receive a lot of snow naturally. Many of the ski resorts also offer extensive ski school programs that allow the entire family to participate. Whether you are looking for a sophisticated ski resort with plenty of restaurants and nightlife, a familyoriented hill where your kids can learn to ski, or a nofrills mountain where your biggest choice is deciding what to wear on the slopes, there’s something for everyone at the ski resorts of Pennsylvania.

Hard facts about space heaters Space heaters can help, but they’re not always the right choice SMALL electric space heaters can reduce your utility bills, but only if you set your central heating system (heat pump or furnace) thermostat lower. They make sense if only one or two people live in a house, with no need to keep vacant rooms warm. Another common situation is when there are rooms in a house that do not stay warm enough. Often a person gets chilly in one of those problem rooms and turns the central thermostat higher. This warms the entire house and more heat is lost through the walls, windows, and ceiling. It is much more efficient to use a small space heater in these rooms. First, it is important to understand all electric space heaters are effectively 100percent efficient. Don’t let advertising stating this fact influence your buying decision. This just means all of the electricity it consumes ends up as heat in your house. It does not mean it’s cheap to operate. Also, the maximum heat most small space heaters can safely produce is about 5,100 British thermal units per hour (Btuh). Houses typically use central heating systems with a capacity of 50,000 to 100,000 Btuh, so a single space heater cannot heat an entire house. Be wary of advertising stating a small electric space heater can allow your central system to run dramatically less for 50 percent or more savings. There’s not a “best” electric space heater for every situation. The proper selection depends on the room and how you plan to use the heater.

watching TV, or will there be a group of people in a large room? Choose between direct radiant and convection (air circulation) space heaters; both types have advantages. Within each group, there are many comfort features and options that may impact your decision. If you have young children, there are also safety considerations.

Radiant space heaters Radiant-style heaters heat quickly. These use a red-hot ribbon, long quartz or carbon tubes to produce infrared heat radiation similar to the sun’s rays. They primarily heat objects and people directly in front of them. Carbon tubes produce infrared heat that penetrates objects and skin slightly below the surface. This makes it very comfortable, effective heat. Radiant heaters are quiet and ideal for heating a specific spot. For example, I use one across from my computer desk to keep me warm while I am writing. My body and the furniture in its path gradually reradiate the heat so the room air also heats up slightly. To heat a slightly larger area, select a model that automatically oscillates.

Convection space heaters Convection heaters are designed to

heat the air in the room. This is often done using a built-in fan to circulate room air over the heating elements. Oilfilled, old radiator-style heaters use natural air circulation (hot air rises) to move room air over the heat source, gently warming a room without bursts of heat. For a living room, often the largest room in a house, consider a convection style heater. This heats an entire room more effectively. Choose a model with a thermostat and multispeed fan to control the heat output. A ceramic convection heater is safe around young children. If the air flow gets blocked, the heating output automatically drops and there are no red hot ribbons. For a bedroom, where quiet operation is important, use an oil-filled radiator or a convection heater with a low-speed setting. Another option is a radiant model facing the bed if you don’t mind the red glow. A horizontal one will heat the entire bed area. l Have a question for Jim?

From dried to delicious WITH January comes short, cold days and long, even colder nights. Why not warm up your kitchen with a slow-cooking soup featuring dried beans or legumes, and then warm up your insides by slowly savoring each and every spoonful? This month, take time to peruse the dried beans at your favorite market. Pick up some black beans, lentils or split peas. Try some new recipes, and see if you agree with those who say dried is the way to go for nutritious, flavorful soups. Note that in the hierarchy of dried beans, black beans are near the top in terms of prep time, requiring pre-soaking and two or more hours of cooking time. Lentils are near the bottom, requiring an easy 30 minutes or less of cooking time. The added bonus of slowly cooked, homemade bean soup is that flavors have a chance to build and blend, and you have complete control of all ingredients. Feel free to adjust seasonings to suit your personal taste. l A trained journalist, JANETTE HESS focuses her writing on interesting people and interesting foods. She is a Master Food Volunteer with her local extension service and enjoys collecting, testing and sharing recipes.

SPLIT PEA SOUP 1 16-ounce package green split peas 4 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth (regular or reduced sodium) 4 cups water 1/2 onion, chopped 1/2 cup diced celery (include tops, if desired) 1 clove garlic, diced 2 whole carrots, trimmed and peeled 1 1/2 cups diced smoked ham (approximately 6 ounces ) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper Freshly ground black pepper

Rinse and drain peas according to package instructions. Place peas in slow cooker and add broth, water, onion, celery, garlic and whole carrots. Cook at high setting for 2 to 3 hours, or until peas are very soft and carrots are tender. Remove carrots to cutting board. Cut lengthwise and then slice into small pieces. Set aside. Using immersion blender, comple tely blend peas and liquid. (If immersion blender is not available, use standard blender, but allow mixture to cool before processing it in small batches; return to slow cooker.) Add sliced carrots and all remain ing ingredients. Cook at low setting for 1 hour. Makes approximately 12 cups soup. NOTE: If vegetarian soup is desired, use vegetable broth and omit ham. If meaty-flavored soup is desired, add a ham bone or ham “heel” to split peas while they are cooking. Remove before blending.

Light it up IT’S A shame we have to put away those magical outdoor holiday lights. Without them, the post-holiday let down hits even harder — we’re tuckered out from rushing and bustling and prepping and visiting and partying, and then we remove all the pretty sparkle and excitement of decorations. On top of that, we shut down all that vibrant lighting. Thus January, already one of the darkest months of the year, slides somberly into obscurity. Why not use decorative outdoor lights all year long? I’m a fan of natural winter interest in the landscape, but to be honest, this is an understated beauty. We have to work to notice details of texture or slight variations of color, or wait for a dusting of snow or glittery ice to get the full effect. It’s nice, but there’s no wow factor. How to create excitement outside now? Planting projects are out of the question — once we plunk the live Christmas tree in its pre-dug hole, there’s frozen ground. But finally, the winter project switch clicked in my brain BARBARA MARTIN , who says she began gardening as a hobby “too many years ago to count,” currently works for the National Gardening Association as a horticulturist. A former member of Gettysburg-based Adams Electric Cooperative, her articles appear in magazines and on the internet.

by Barbara Martin

when I realized how much I hate leaving home early in the dark and coming home in the dark. Let there be light! Most of our homes sport humdrum outdoor lighting. It goes unnoticed as long as it does its job. But that’s not to say we don’t appreciate “artistic” lighting. And by using timers and energy-saving LED lights, it is feasible to include decorative lighting in our landscapes. Specialty lighting takes a little more ingenuity and trial and error to get right, but when well-arranged, it can really amp up our enjoyment of the space — year-round. There are many lighting options. A few favorites include: a light shining on the slightly icy waterfall in a pond. Upward-directed spots highlighting the shadows cast by delicate birch branches, a horizontally tiered dogwood and the tall, dry and dramatic stems of an ornamental grass clump. Gentle downward pools of light along a pathway bringing a soft glow to the bordering azaleas blossoms. One of my favorite vignettes in a previous garden was observing the surface of the little ornamental pond (water or ice, depending on the season) twinkling as I sipped my first coffee of the day. I’d think about the goldfish wintering down in the depths, how the marvels of nature (with a little help from an electric pump and a lightbulb or two) allowed me to enjoy a water feature year round, night and day.

If you are not dialed in on the power of decorative exterior lighting, begin observing it in public spaces where the lighting designer specifically aimed to make it feel inviting in the evening. Upscale restaurants, hotels, theaters, and outdoor shopping areas often show clever lighting effects, as do commercial buildings with atriums or courtyards. These techniques can be adapted to use at home. When you plan your lighting, experiment using flashlights, camping lanterns, or battery-operated candles (or drag those holiday lights right back out of storage) and see what kinds of effects can be achieved. Once your functional needs for ambulation, safety, and security are met, lighting turns as creative and ornamental as your imagination can dream up. Spotlight a plant to cast shadows in a certain direction, or create a pool of light to feature the gazebo or fountain. Wrap twinkling

LIGHTING FOR EFFECT: Decorative lighting does more than just show the way to your house.

white lights along the limbs of a tree, or decorate the tool shed with electrified paper lanterns. If the above sounds too traditional, then turn your thoughts to the drama and excitement of theaters or nightclubs. We don’t have to stop the party just because New Year’s Eve has come and gone. Fire up a Bollywoodstyle, multicolored spinning disco ball and tie it in with your sound system for some serious fun. Line up the tiki torches and see how well they reflect snow. Luminarias turn any evening walk into a magical experience. Start fine-tuning the special effects for that summer dance party on the deck, an enchanting candlelit picnic under the stars, or whatever type of gathering floats your boat. Summer will be here before you know it! l

PENN

by Marcus Schneck

WE HAD come full circle, through some of the meanest brush and bramble the small river valley could throw up in our path, and now cut across our earlier tracks in the snow. The red fox’s prints revealed he had spent long minutes studying our trail before assessing the danger to be elsewhere and moving directly back along the route he was following when we had spotted his fresh trail three hours earlier and began our tracking. New-fallen snow is a book written fresh, printed in the language of tracks of all that move through it. Today’s volume revealed a few hours in the life of a large red fox taking care of his daily business. He moved slowly, unhurried, cautious and careful, always close to the dense tangles of undergrowth. He spent considerable time at the hopping tracks of some chickadees, nuthatches and other small, mixed-flock birds. Most likely he had seen the birds making the tracks and, when no predatory opportunity presented itself and the birds moved on, made the best of the situation and learned a bit more about the potential prey. He paused at the edge of a small, grassy opening and paced a downwind semi-circle along about a third of the clearing. Then he apparently sat just outside the opening, scanning the hillocks of sod. Something, probably a

mouse or vole, maybe moving beneath the three or four inches of snow, must have caught his attention. He stalked, waited, stalked a bit farther and pounced. His entire body arced up, over and straight back down, front paws and snout first, right down into the snow. The target had been following an under-snow trail that was the most obvious clue for me, but paled in usability for the fox, with his super-senses of hearing and smelling. Maybe at the last moment he had sighted something, but he had zoomed in on his prey well before his vision came into play. His ears and his nose had located a small rodent beneath the snow that the fox likely never saw before he pounced. No evidence at the scene of the attack indicated the fox had been successful, but just a short way off from the open-

ing he dined with much less energy output. He had torn into the carcass of an already dead rabbit. Something had happened to the rabbit before the snow began falling about a half-day earlier. The full three to four inches still covered part of the carcass, even after the fox had tugged at it to tear off the bits and pieces that made up his meal. The fox urinated on the rabbit leftovers, attempted to scratch some dirt and leaves over the cache, gave up on that, and moved on. He began the wide, meandering loop that eventually took him back across his own trail and mine. It was a book well written, complete with plot twists and characters beyond anything on the bookshelf. l

Thoughts from Earl Pitts, UHMERIKUN! Guys like to brag about how far they can drive on empty

Social commentary from Earl Pitts —— a.k.a. GARY BUR BANK , a nationally syndicated radio personality —— can be heard on the following radio stations that cover electric cooperative service territories in Pennsylvania: WANB-FM 103.1 Pittsburgh; WARM-AM 590 Wilkes-Barre/Scranton; WIOO-AM 1000 Carlisle; WEEO-AM 1480 Shippensburg; WMTZ-FM 96.5 Johnstown; WQBR-FM 99.9/92.7 McElhattan; WLMI-FM 103.9 Kane; and WVNW-FM 96.7 Burnham-Lewistown.

I did a commentary a ways back ‘bout things guys like to brag about. And I said one a’ the biggest things guys like to brag about is how fast we can get somewhere. Some guy down at the Duck Inn says he can drive to Mudd Lake in a hour an’ a half. Some other guy will say he drove it in a hour. An’ before you know it, somebody is claimin’ they got there so fast the only way they could’a done it is with a jet car an’ a dry salt bed. So anyways — here’s another thing guys like to brag about. And between you and me, I don’t even get this one. They like to brag how far they can get after the gas needle is on “E.” Like me an’ the Meeker boys was drivin’ out in Dub’s truck to go huntin’ recently. An’ this is way out, about a hour past Mudd Lake. We’re talkin’ out in God’s country. An’ I says to ol’ Dub, “Dubster, you better put some gas in this old beast. This sucker is just about on ‘E.’” He looks at me an’ rolls his eyes. He says, “Earl, when my gauge hits empty, I can drive another 70 miles!” I says, “Dub, you know where we’re goin’ huntin’, right? We goin’ about as far into the wilderness as you can get without findin’ Survivorman. Get some gas, my friend.” An’ then ol’ Junior pipes up. He says the gas gauge on his truck don’t even work. He says his needle has been stuck on a quarter-tank for five years. He says that never scared him. My only question is, “How do you know when you need gas?” He looks at me real funny an’ goes, “It stops running.” Wake up, America. Yeah, just be happy this idiot wasn’t accepted in pilot school. He’d be up at 30,000 feet tryin’ to convince passengers they got enough fuel to get across another two states. Me an’ Earl Junior was in the livin’ room last night, jist flippin’ between 14 different games on 14 different sports channels. Because that’s what men do. All of a sudden, my better half, Pearl, come in

there, grabs the remote out of my hand, flips off the TV and stares at us. I said, “Woman, the house better be on fire, or an alien had better landed in the backyard.” Then she goes, “Boys, we’re gonna have a family fun night.” An’ I go, “Excuse me, but we just were. Until you come in here.” Her response was, “Earl, THIS is gonna be family game night. One night a week, all families is supposed to turn off the TV an’ play games together. It’s supposed to bring us closer together.” Of course, our family is like most American families. The thing that most keeps us together is stayin’ apart. ‘Cause we know if we was to get too close, we’d kill each other. Every time when some brain-dead, clueless nitwit mows down his family, there in the back of my head, I wonder if they was havin’ a family game night. She holds up a Scrabble box, an’ she goes, “Does anybody wanna play Scrabble?” An’ Earl Junior says, “I can’t spell, Mama.” I got to second the boy on that. I figger he’ll never lead a life a crime ‘cause he couldn’t write a hold-up note or a ransom demand. So she holds up another box, an’ she goes, “Does anybody wanna play Pictionary?” And Earl Junior goes, “I can’t draw, Mama.” I got to second the boy on that. I have seen the boy draw stick figures that a 4year-old looked at, an’ then rolled his eyes. An’ I stopped my better half before she could move to the game that was behind door number three. I says, “Pearl, if you truly wanna have family fun night, the next box you pull out better have a pizza in it.” Wake up, America! We did order pizza. We did have a family fun night. Me an’ Earl Junior watchin’ the games, an’ Pearl playin’ solitaire. We had so much fun, we might even do it again next week. I’m Earl Pitts, Uhmerikun. l JANUARY 2014 • PENN
