Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • December 2, 2009 Emmanuel asks... Can You Help? Our hat’s off to Midland Park Cub Scouts Troop 157 for the collection of grocery items. We thank Glen Rock’s Coleman School Daisy Troop for collecting and donating candy. Speaking of help, we need a driver to deliver food once a month to a family in Chester. So far, the usual excitement and attention the community devotes to contributing holiday dinners and gifts for the kids has been on the low side. I am hoping that this picks up, because it has never been an issue. The children of Emmanuel Cancer have given us their wish list for a holiday gift. If you would like to adopt a child for 4-29-09 karen/janine the December holiday, please call us at (201) 612-8118. EmmanuelHelp3x.75(4-29-09) You can consider the December Holi3 x Dinner as a giving idea. If you are day .75 interested are two ways to help: If you are in a hurry, simply buy a gift card at your local chain grocery store. Figure out what it would cost to buy all the groceries (including the turkey or ham) for a family of six. The amount of the card could be anywhere from $40 to $60 for the basics, or higher if you add in any extra things. You can put together a basket, bag, or box of non-perishable items that a family can use to create a holiday meal. Suggested items include stuffing, turkey gravy or gravy master, canned yams, a disposable turkey pan, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, canned pumpkin, pie filling, pie crust, yams, potatoes, onions, coffee and tea, cake mix and icing, pancake mix and syrup (for breakfast, of course!) and a chain grocery store gift certificate for a turkey and other fresh items. You can augment the dinner with a frozen turkey. Call us and we’ll give you a family. All you need to do is assemble the foods and drop them off here at the Midland Park office. We will deliver it to them in time for the Holiday.

She advised that their range is expanding south and east with black bears having been sighted in all of the state’s 21 counties. But she said the mere presence of a black bear is not considered a problem, and some residents might observe bears near their homes. “Generally, bears tend to be wary of humans, but it is important not to tempt bears to linger in residential areas by leaving out food or garbage. Black bears learn very quickly and bears that are fed intentionally, or unintentionally, by carelessly leaving out food or garbage, will associate food with people and those bears can become a nuisance or aggressive, in which case they may have to be destroyed,” she said. Several of the residents said the bear sightings on their properties have forced them to change their lifestyle and one said she is afraid to go into her yard. She said it was ridiculous that the state would not do something about the issue. Another resident said there is no need to be petrified of the bears and that everyone should educate themselves and their children about what to do if a bear comes onto their property. A third citizen voiced the opinion that the punishment for not being educated should not be to get mauled. ����������������������� �������������������������������� Your Remote Control HQ Featuring: �������������������� ��������������������������� ���������������������� ����������������������� ������� ��������� ������������ ������������������������������������ ����������������������������������� �������� You’re Source for R/C (Radio Control) Hobbyists KITS AND READY TO RUN, GAS / ELECTRIC CARS, BOATS, TRUCKS, BUGGIES, AIRPLANES, HELICOPTERS!
