CREATURE CARE – FLEE THE FLEAS
Yes, summer is over and the autumn months are upon us, so lets talk ‘fleas’. The fall months of the year are especially important months for fleas since this is time when all of the millions of flea eggs laid both inside and outside during this past summer are hatching out to infest our dogs, our cats, and our homes.

Fleas are more then just a nuisance as they bite our pets and yes sometimes even us people. These common insect pests also carry and cause disease. Allergic reactions causing hair loss and more serious skin infections start with the saliva of a fleas that bites the animal. Fleas are also responsible for spreading ‘tapeworms’, bacterial infections that can affect the blood, liver, and lungs of our dogs and cats. Deadly diseases like bubonic plague are still a threat thanks to the flea.

EMERGENCY 101 – THE SWIFT911
When a disaster strikes, every second counts. Sudden emergencies such as tornadoes, flash floods, and intense wildfires can unfold so quickly that some people may not even be aware of the danger until it is too late. That is why in Pennsylvania, the Tioga County Commissioners have purchased a new mass notification software program known as Swift911.

Swift911 allows emergency personnel to send critical information to the citizens and visitors of Tioga County, Pennsylvania before, during, and after large-scale emergencies. Additionally, you can sign up for day-to-day notifications such as weather alerts, road closures, and boil water alerts if you choose. It’s completely customizable.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD – APPLE CIDER
It’s fall! Which means leaves are changing and time for fall foods! I’m talking pumpkin… sweet potato…. pears, cranberries, and apples!
The great thing about the bright yellow-orange varieties of squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin, is that they contain beta-carotene, which is a provitamin A carotenoid. Carotenoids act as antioxidants. These are substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. You know what else is especially rich in antioxidants? Apples! Do you know the difference between cider and apple juice? Apple juice is filtered to remove solids and it is pasteurized so stays fresh longer. Because fresh Cider has not been filtered, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator. We have a variety of apples grown, locally. Today we will visit a local, family owned apple cider mill.

CHILDHOOD OBESITY – CONCERNS & SOLUTIONS
On today’s feature, Wellsboro Home Page visits with Dr. Stephen Sasser of the Laurel Health Center in Wellsboro to learn more about the overwhelming research that has confirmed – if your child is obese in adolescence, they are more than likely going to be obese in adulthood. Dr. Sasser will discuss the research and the steps parents can take to maintain a healthy weight for their child.

In fact 12 million kids between the ages of 6 and 11 weigh in overweight for their age group and another 36.5% of adults over tip the scales. In fact, according to a CDC study in 2013, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.
