Patricia Kukal caught the three bucks on film from inside her home. She watched as the first buck made himself comfortable in her flower bed. The second buck approached for a drink from the bird bath. The third buck did the same, but was frightened by a noise. All three scattered after the photo was taken.

18624 Cyndi and Louis Pantages’ oldest son Nicholas started Kindergarden in September. Where does time go? Women ‘n Wine, celebrated every 2nd Tuesday of the month, celebrates its 2nd anniversary in November! Time sure does fly when you’re having a good time! And the women do have a good time at these events. Leadership Carbon announced its class of 2013. Among the participants is Donna Martino, of Mauch Chunk Trust’s Albrightsville branch at Pine Point Plaza. On Thursday, October 18, 2012, local author, Gene Duffy a.k.a. Jozef Rothstein, will be sharing his decade long Hollywood experience with the signing of his new book “As the Matzo Ball Turns.” A reception and book signing will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. A portion of the proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Mauch Chunk Opera House and anyone who purchases a book will also get a free DVD copy of the movie “Living with Uncle Ray”. Gene Duffy works at Shenanigans when he isn’t doing book signings. Then on October 27, the day of the Ohio State-Penn State game, Gene will be signing at the Penn State Student Bookstore, 330 East College Ave., State College. The signing runs from 11 AM to 3 PM. Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve? A group of residents is trying to organize New Year’s Eve at Sunset Green, Split Rock Golf Club. If you are interested, please contact Shelly at 7229901, by October 31st. Fran and Gerry Wilkinson were back in the area for a high school reunion in Jim Thorpe and took time to meet with close friends at Boulder View Tavern on September 27th. It was great to see them. Formerly of Lake Harmony, the couple moved to the Stuart, FL area and currently reside in Georgia.

Finnegan’s Wake took place at Murphy’s Loft on Sunday, September 16th. Mike Donnelly did a great job playing the part of Finnegan, rising from the coffin to the delight of the crowd of onlookers and “mourners”. The bartenders and waitresses somehow kept pace with the demands of thirsty and hungry patrons, It was a great afternoon for a great cause, benefitting Tunkannock Fire Company. The popular event featured The Barley Boys & Pocono Region Pipes & Drums. Bob “Frosty” Frostbutter is back home after a stint in the hospital. He is recuperating nicely at home in Stuart, FL. Bob and Ro, formerly of Lake Harmony are enjoying their retirement in Florida. The Lake Harmony Watershed Preservation Group is sponsoring a Wine Pairing Dinner at Sunset Greens at Split Rock Country Club October 20, at 7 PM. The menu and wine pairings sound yummy. Cost is $70 per person. For reservations, call 570 722-9901. Proceeds go to LHWPG’s efforts to “Save the Lake”. Join the firefighters of the Lake Harmony Volunteer fire Company on Wednesday, October 10th at 7 PM at the fire station (rain date October 11th) and learn about various aspects of fire safety. Witness how the firefighters remove trapped victims from an auto, using hydraulic rescue tools. Learn how and when to use a fire extinguisher; how to deal with a stove fire and other life and property saving techniques. While you’re there, enjoy a tour of the new fire station and examine the award winning apparatus and equipment the fire company offers the residents of and visitors to Kidder Township. Meet the fire personnel; ask them questions and hopefully, learn more about fire safety.

And because of the program, I haven’t had to worry about having refills or running out of pills.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED! It may seem like old news, but a Photo ID is required for the November 2012 election. In May, it was a preview, where photo ID was requested of all voters in the primary. Most voters in Kidder supported the measure, but a few were reluctant to produce photo ID in May because it wasn’t a requirement until November. The problem is, in November ALL voters will be required to show a photo ID before voting in a polling place. All photo IDs MUST be current and contain an expiration date, unless noted otherwise. Acceptable IDs include: • Photo IDs issued by the U.S. Federal Government or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 1. Pennsylvania driver’s license or non-driver’s license photo ID (IDs are valid for voting purpose 12 months past expiration date) 2. Valid U.S. passport (not expired) 3. U.S. military ID - active duty and retired military (a military or veteran’s ID must designate an expiration date or designate that the expiration date is indefinite). Military dependents’ ID must contain an expiration date. • Employee photo ID issued by Federal, PA, County or Municipal government (not expired) • Photo ID cards issued by a Pennsylvania care facility, including long-term care facilities, assisted living residences or personal care homes (not expired) -------------------------------------------------------If you do not have one of these IDs and require one for voting purposes, you may be entitled to get one FREE OF CHARGE at a PennDOT Driver License Center. To find the Driver License Center nearest you, and learn what identification and residency documentation you will need to get a photo ID, or for more information, visit www.VotesPA.com or call 1-877-VotesPA (1-877-868-3772).

NO ONE legally entitled to vote will be denied the right to do so. If you do not have a photo ID or are indigent and unable to obtain one without payment of a fee, you may cast a provisional ballot, and will have six days to provide your photo ID and/or an affirmation to your county elections office to have your ballot count.

OLD JAIL GHOST TOURS Haunting tales of strange and ghostly happenings in the historic Old Jail, located in downtown Jim Thorpe, will be told during candlelit Ghost Tours on Saturday, October 13, October 20, and October 27, from 6:30 PM to the last tour at 9:30 PM. The spine-chilling stories told in the Old Jail ghost tours, are true experiences that have been reported by real visitors. Strange voices from an empty cell; black shadows floating by; strange lights in the air, a tap on your shoulder from something you can’t see! Who is the woman in white on the stairs? Who is calling out in the dungeon? Who are these ghosts? Are these the spirits of the four Irish coal miners known as Molly Maguires, who, on June 21, 1877, met their sad death on the gallows of the Old Jail? Accused of murder, these men proclaimed their innocence. Immediately before his hanging, one miner left his handprint on his cell wall as proof of his innocence. This mysterious handprint will be viewed on the ghost tour. Ghost seekers will hear about the strange occurrences that happened in the cell block, and, if brave, will venture down into the eerie dungeon to check out the ghosts in the solitary confinement cells. Admission will be charged. Reservations or advance tickets are not available. Because of the scary nature of the night, no children under 12 are permitted as the Old Jail does not want to be responsible for nightmares. The Old Jail Museum is located at 128 W. Broadway, Jim Thorpe, just a short walk from the Jim Thorpe Welcome Center. Parking at the Old Jail is limited. For information, please call 570 325-5259 or visit www.TheOldJailMuseum.com. The Old Jail is a non-profit organization. Income from ghost tours assists in the upkeep of the Old Jail.

A Plan For Managing Diabetes And Weight (NAPSA)-There’s good news for those with diabetes. Many feel they must choose between maintaining a healthy weight and managing their glucose levels. A new book says that it’s possible to do both. Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Jill Weisenberger has created a handbook with a one-year plan to help people with diabetes reach their weight-loss goals.

The book, “Diabetes Weight Loss-Week by Week: A Safe, Effective Method for Losing Weight and Improving Your Health,” is published by the American Diabetes Association. It discusses calories, keeping a food log, understanding carbs, introducing physical activity, and understanding what limitations you may have due to certain medications. In addition to work sheets and action steps, the book also contains tips on how to halt negative self-talk, tame nighttime nibbles and conquer cravings. To learn more or to order, call (800) 232-6455 or visit www.diabetes.org/weightloss. Author Jill Weisenberger says it’s possible for those with diabetes to control their glucose levels and lose weight.

Preventing Electrical Fires (NAPSA)-Electrical failures and malfunctions are a leading cause of house fires year after year-but you can stay safe at home. Many electrical fires can be prevented simply by understanding basic electrical safety principles and following safe practices. Keep Home Fires From Burning To help you protect your home and family from electrical fires, the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) offers these tips: • Safety should always be the top priority when working with electricity. ESFI recommends that a qualified, licensed electrician perform all home electrical work in compliance with local and national safety standards. • Consider having your circuit breakers replaced with arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs), which provide enhanced electrical fire protection by detecting dangerous arcing conditions. • Make sure all electrical panel circuits are properly labeled. Always replace fuses or circuit breakers with the correct size and amperage. • Keep the area around the electrical panel clear so you can easily shut off power in an emergency. • Every month, use the TEST button to check that ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) and AFCIs are working properly. • Look for warning signs of an electrical problem, such as outlets and switches that are warm or make crackling, sizzling or buzzing noises. • Regularly check cords, outlets, switches, and appliances for signs of damage. Do not use damaged electrical devices.

Protecting your home and family from an electrical fire may be easier than you realize.

---------------------------------------• • •

Do not use extension cords on a permanent basis and never use them with space heaters or air conditioners. Avoid overloading outlets. Do not use lightbulbs that exceed the recommended wattage of the light fixture or lamp. What to Do in Case of Fire

Despite your best prevention efforts, a fire could still happen. Follow these five tips to make sure your family is prepared to make a safe escape: 1. Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the house. 2. Test smoke alarms every month. 3. Create a family fire escape plan that includes two ways out of each room. 4. Pick an easy-to-find meeting place outside, a safe distance from your home. 5. Practice your escape plan by having at least two fire drills a year. Start one fire drill at night while your family is sleeping.

Passes Help Visitors Explore War Of 1812 (NAPSA)-As the nation commemorates the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the penning of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” one city will take center stage. That city is Baltimore. During the war, the British launched an all-out bombardment of the city that lasted 24 hours. Only a small, star-shaped fort blocked their advancement but the fort’s soldiers and Baltimore’s citizens stood their ground, defending the fort and turning the battle-hardened British army back. At dawn the next day, surprised to see the flag still flying, Francis Scott Key wrote the poem that would become “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Today, visitors to Baltimore can stand on the ramparts at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and gaze out at the waters where Key first saw the nation’s flag during the Battle of Baltimore. Visitors can also see Key’s original manuscript at the Maryland Historical Society and visit the home of Mary Pickersgill, where the 15-star, 15-stripe flag that flew over the fort was sewn. Visiting these sites is easier than ever before thanks to combo tickets that make it less expensive to visit several of the city’s top attractions. These include the Star-Spangled Baltimore Pass and National Anthem by Land and Sea tours.

New ticketing options make it easier than ever to experience the city’s commemorative sites. -------------------------------------------------------Baltimoreans whose role as shipbuilders, sea captains, carpenters, innkeepers, laborers, seamstresses and militia companies helped end the “second war of independence” and start anew with a flag and national anthem. The tour visits Fell’s Point, home to more than 70 houses dating from the 1812 period-more than anywhere else in Baltimore. Visitors are invited to discover the importance of the war through special events, exhibitions, living history and more over the next three years. For More Information For more information, visit www.StarSpangledBaltimore.com or call (877) BALTIMORE.

The National Anthem by Land tour is a 75-minute narrated trolley tour on a San Franciscostyle trolley. The National Anthem by Sea tour includes a 60-minute narrated cruise. The Preservation Society has also added 1812: Schooners and Privateers, a guided 60-minute walking tour focusing on the less-well-known

TIPS ON GETTING A GREAT START TO THE DAY

Experts say children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(NAPSA)-As children return to school, it’s important to start their day with a nutritious breakfast to help them succeed. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills and eye-hand coordination. Also, kids who skip breakfast get sleepy at school and tend to eat more junk food later in the day. Healthy Morning Options Making your busy mornings healthier can be as easy as opening your freezer or refrigerator door, say the experts at the National Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association. Frozen and refrigerated foods are quick and easy, tasty and nutritious and can help you and your family start the day in a very good way. Even if you think you don’t have time to eat breakfast, here are some quick and healthy options to consider: • Fill toasted waffles with peanut butter and jam for a unique breakfast sandwich. • Create a yogurt parfait by layering your favorite yogurt, fruits and granola. • Make a tasty shredded cheese and veggie omelet and serve with precooked turkey sausage.

Top pancakes with bananas, drizzle with chocolate syrup and serve with a glass of skim milk. • Mix nonfat yogurt, frozen berries, skim milk, juice and bananas for a delicious smoothie. • For quick grab-and-go meals, have readily available string cheese, a variety of yogurts, a selection of fruit juices, and breakfast sandwiches that are ready to heat and eat in minutes. For an easy, healthy breakfast treat, try this waffle recipe to get your family off to a great day. A Perfectly Healthy Breakfast Whole-grain frozen waffles Maple syrup Bananas, sliced Strawberries, sliced Blueberries Orange juice Toast waffles as directed and top with syrup and fruit. Serve with orange juice. For more tasty recipes and information on frozen and refrigerated foods, visit www.EasyHomeMeals.com, and on Facebook, “like” www.facebook.com/EasyHomeMeals.

Wildlife Note — 29

Black Bear by Chuck Fergus One of Pennsylvania’s premier big game animals is the black bear, Ursus americanus. The species ranges through much of forested North America from Mexico to Alaska and from Florida to northern Canada. In different regions, black bears exhibit different life patterns, denning times, tolerance of human activity, habitat preferences, home range, reproduction behavior, pelt coloration and even size and weight. Biology Bears are powerfully built animals. Adults are 50 to 85 inches in length, including a three- to five-inch tail. They stand about 30 inches at the shoulder and weights range from 140 to 400 pounds, with some individuals weighing more than 800 pounds. Males, sometimes called boars, tend to be considerably larger and heavier than females (sows). Most Pennsylvania bears are black, although a few are

cinnamon-color. (In other parts of its range, Ursus americanus may be brown, whitish, or bluish-gray, but the majority are black.) The body is glossy black, the muzzle tinged with tan. Often a bear will have on its chest a white mark, sometimes in a prominent “V.” The fur is thick, long and fairly soft. Sexes are colored alike. Bears walk in a shuffling, flat-footed manner. Each foot has five toes, each with a curved claw. Extremely agile for their size, bears sometimes stand erect on their hind feet to see and smell better. Top speed is 30 miles per hour over a short distance. Black bears climb easily and swim well. Black bears have an acute sense of smell, but their vision is poor. Hearing is not believed to be acute. They occasionally growl or “woof,” and when injured, sob and bawl. Sows communicate to their cubs with low grunts, huffs and mumbles. Bears are mainly nocturnal, but they sometimes feed and travel by day. Alert and wary, they tend to avoid open areas. Individuals are solitary. While most bears will run from a human, a female with cubs should be respected, and on rare occasions might actually attack if she feels her young are in danger. Bears that become accustomed to humans (as in a park or garbage dump setting) are less likely to run away, making them potentially much more dangerous. Bears find food mainly by scent. They are opportunistic feeders, with a largely vegetarian diet. Common foods are fruit (including large amounts of many kinds of berries), mast (acorns and beechnuts), succulent leaves of hardwoods, grasses, insects (including eggs and larvae), plant roots, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, fish, carrion and garbage. An occasional bear runs afoul of humans by preying on pigs, goats or sheep; by eating corn; by raiding campers’ food stores; and by destroying honeybee colonies (beekeepers with such problems should protect their hives with electric fences). Bears drink water frequently, and in hot weather they wallow in streams. In autumn, bears eat heavily to fatten themselves for winter. The winter den may be a hollow tree or log, an excavation or a crevice in a rock ledge; it may be a “nest” on top of the ground, or under fallen trees or brush, in a cavity under a large rock or beneath the roots of a tree; or it may be in a drainage culvert or a depression dug in


Lake News 39 the ground. Some bears line their dens with bark, grasses or leaves. Females often select more sheltered sites than males. Males den alone, as do pregnant females (they give birth in the den). Females with first-year cubs den with their young. In winter, bears den up and become dormant. They lapse into and out of a deep sleep, from which they may be roused. Body temperature is not drastically reduced. Respiration and heart rate might decline noticeably. They do not urinate or defecate while dormant. Bears in poor condition den for shorter periods than those in better shape. On warm, late-winter days, they may emerge to look for food. In some areas, bears create trails while covering the nightly circuits they run. Individuals may scar prominent trees with claw and tooth marks; these “bear trees” may mark a territory or signal availability during mating season. Bears mate from early June to mid-July. It is generally accepted that they are polygamous. The male does not help rear young. Females give birth to cubs in January while in the winter den. Litter sizes range from one to five, with three most frequent in Pennsylvania. Newborns are covered with fine dark hair, through which their pink skin shows. They are about nine inches long and weigh 10 to 16 ounces. Their eyes and ears are closed. Cubs nurse in the den. After about six weeks, their eyes open. In about two more weeks, they walk. They leave the den when three months old, are weaned by seven months, and by fall usually weigh 60-100 pounds. Bears traveling in groups in autumn are usually females and their cubs. Cubs are playful, romping in water and wrestling with their lit-

termates. The female protects them, sending them up trees if danger threatens. Males occasionally kill and eat cubs. In most cases, cubs den with their mothers for their first winter. The family group disbands the following summer, when the female again is ready to breed. A female generally raises one litter only every two years. Most females breed for the first time when 2½ years old. Mortality factors include hunting, damage control and highway kills. Bears host ticks and internal parasites. In the wild, a rare individual might live to 25 years. Population In Pennsylvania, bears are found in large forested areas statewide. They are not typically found in large urban and agricultural areas. The total population currently is estimated to be 15,000. Periodic harvesting, through hunting, helps minimize bear problems in agricultural areas — honeybee, livestock, crop destruction — and, in suburban areas. Habitat Bears inhabit wooded country. In spring and summer, they frequent openings to feed on fresh vegetation and berries; in fall, they occupy dense, regenerating clearcuts and mountain laurel thickets. In the northeast — a pocket of prime bruin habitat — bears favor brushy swamps with rhododendron, blueberry and spruce. They also inhabit mixed hardwood forests, especially where underbrush is thick. Bears range over large areas. Movement is affected by food availability, breeding activities and human disturbances. Although bears show remarkable adaptability in living close to humans, their numbers decline as their habitat shrinks. Protecting suitable wild lands, especially those containing wetlands, is probably the single best habitat management tool.
