Featured this month is D.P. Randler’s of Robesonia and the winners
of the 2008 Landscaping Contest. Pictured with David Randler are
the 1st place winners of a $50 gift certificate, Jan & Valerie
Diefenderfer. The judges chose their property because of the colorful
variety of perennials and design. The second place $40 gift certificate
went to Ed and Rosalie Culler. The judges liked the colors and the
front yard display. When I took the picture I didn’t notice the snakes
Rosalie is using to try and deter the robins from digging in her flower
beds. Good tip, Ed and Rosalie. The third place $30 gift certificate
went to Deanie Yoh. The judges loved the simplicity, well kept look
(good job Dallan) and the centerpiece ceramic bench with a little girl.
You all did a great job and put a lot of work into having nice
properties you can be proud of. Thank you to all the judges who
walked and drove the town in hot steamy weather to pick the winners.
I want to extend a BIG Thank You to D.P. Randler for sponsoring
this contest. His generosity and involvement in the community is an
asset. If you need anything for your home and garden stop
in and see all the merchandise that he has in stock. There is
a huge variety to choose from and a lot of unique items you
won’t find anywhere else. Enjoy the dog days of summer...

WOMELSDORF HISTORY
Home of John Womelsdorff
dismanteled in 1927
In 1750 a blacksmith, John Womelsdorff
appeared in Middle Town and lived at 40
N. Front St (former Hartranft Shoe
Repair). His father Daniel, purchased 250
acres in the Tulpehocken and put John in
charge of the plantation (the farm on Mill
Road) a center point for travelers between
Rdg. and Harrisbg. In 1962 John laid out
75 building lots but filed bankruptcy in
1774. Jacob Seltzer bought the town at a
sheriff sale for $500. Jacob already had
purchased 3 lots from John and out of
respect for him re-named the town
Womelsdorf. Jacob sold one of those plots
to Conrad Stouch in 1785 where he erected
the Stouch’s Tavern. The EuropeanColonial architecture of the arched
entrance and bricked courtyard at the SE
corner of the building are a rare find in the
area. The tavern served as a hub for the
Stouch-Calder Stagecoach lines. Conrad
was a partner in the stage line between
Rdg-Harrisburg 1797-1840. The Stouch
was a place where the people voted for 112
years from 1797-1909. In 1807 the first
post office west of the Schuylkill River in
Berks County was here and Conrad was the
first postmaster. Pres. George Washington
slept at the Stouch on Nov 13, 1793. John
Penn spent the night on April 9, 1788 while
on a journey to view the site for the
proposed Harrisburg Capitol. In 1833 the
citizens voted to incorporate the town and
become a borough. At that time the
population was 750 ( 2700+today). No
less than 5 early Pres visited the dirt and
cobblestone streets along with George
there was John Adams, Martin Van Buren,
William H Harrison, & James Buchanan
(in 1857 he attended ox roast at 133-135 W
High St.). John Kennedy drove through
Womelsdorf while campaigning for office.
The flag on his coffin was from the VF
Flag Factory.
THE MILITARY
I wanted to do this story because of all the young kids I
know who are making the choice to enlist. I am hoping it
gives family and friends some insight to military life. I
would like to introduce you to Private Andrew Rick. I
know Andy because I live with his uncle, Dennis Rick.
Andy decided to join the Army after trying college, jobs,
and everything he could think of here. He soon realized
there was nothing for him in this area and he needed a
change. A recruiter, Sgt. Miller, signed him up at Fairgrounds Square Mall. He left for Fort Sill, Oklahoma on
January 7th, 2008, for 10 weeks of basic training at 19
years old. The first 2 weeks were far from easy. Being
away from home, not knowing anyone or his new routine
and what the army was about was difficult. He felt lost,
and second guessed his choice. By Jan. 11th basic training
started and his days consisted of basic rifleman marksmanship, throwing grenades, combat lifesaver certification courses for medics, gas
chamber drills, land navigation, obstacle courses and 2 weeks spent in the field
living in a tent and learning survival skills. By the time basics were over there
wasn’t much time to miss home and he had many new friends and a clear
understanding of what he had signed up for. His family, grandmother, and some
friends made their way to Oklahoma for his graduation on March 26th. Andy, 28
lbs. lighter on his adjusted 3 meals a day diet, was a changed man in many ways
and ready for the visit. The 2 days with them flew by and it was off to Fort Bliss,
Texas for Advanced Individual Training for 12 weeks. Andy picked Air Defense
Artillery for his job training. This stretch of training was much easier knowing that
he made the right decision to enlist. Meeting new people and doing things he
never thought he could or would do have been the highlights of his adventure. He
benefits from the free housing, living expenses, medical & dental care, and looks
forward to a free college education. He plans to study criminal justice and enter
the field of law enforcement should he leave the military in the future. As of now,
he plans on staying in the military and looks forward to the traveling programs and
using his 30 days of paid leave per year (more than most of us get). It’s Wednesday, July 9th, and tomorrow Andy leaves for a year in Korea. The only thing he
thinks will be different is the culture shock until he adapts to his surroundings. He
knows nothing about the region and hasn’t bothered to study it beforehand. He
leaves here an E2 Private, eager for what is ahead. The visit back home was short
but still too long for him. He loves his family and friends and missing them is the
hardest part about moving on. He’s restless and looking forward to a future he
knew was out there for him. Being home only reminds him of the reasons he left.
As comforting as the same things are to most of us, for this now 20 year old,
energetic, eager to learn man, it’s off to bigger and better things. As much as we
love him and we will miss him, we are all so proud of him and his determination to
chase down and own his future. Look for updates from Korea in future issues.
FURNACE CREEK FUN
What a great turnout at the
creek for an outdoor classroom experience. The
Robesonia Library teamed
with Cindy Murdough, a
Conrad Weiser Social
Studies/Science teacher and
gave the kids a day to
remember. Over 30 children
from the Thursday library
program and the Robesonia
playground went exploring
to find and learn about bugs
in and around the water. As
they turned over rocks, used
dip nets, spoons and their
fingers, the containers by the
creek started to fill with a
variety of creatures. There
were water striders, crayfish,
damselflies, moths, gnats,
mosquitoes, earwigs, bees,
flies and more. The library
program has been all about
bugs this summer. At the
counter in the library you can
see all types of bugs on
display. Be sure to visit and
support our library. The staff
and volunteers do a terrific
job and work hard to supply
us with interesting reading and learning tools. With the
knowledge and help from Cindy Murdough our children learned
things about the creek they couldn’t have learned indoors.
FIFTY DOLLARS IS FIFTY DOLLARS
Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair
every year, and every year Morris would say, Esther,
I'd like to ride in that helicopter.'
Esther always replied, 'I know Morris, but that
helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty
dollars'
One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, 'Esther, I'm 85
years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.'
To this, Esther replied, 'Morris that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty
dollars is fifty dollars.'
The pilot overheard the couple and said, 'Folks I'll make you a deal.. I'll take
the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not
say a word, I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's fifty dollars.'
Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy
maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and
over again, but still not a word.
When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, 'Man, I did
everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!'
Morris replied, 'Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when
Esther fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars !
SOME BAAAD FOODS
Chips-One ounce of potato chips has 152 calories and 10 grams of
fat (3 of which are artery clogging saturated fat). If you munch on
a one ounce handful 3 times a week, in one year you will have
added 23,400 calories to your diet and about 7 pounds to your
waistline. And, most of us eat more than a handful at a time.
Non-Dairy Topping-Tasty as they are, these toppings are mostly
corn syrup and hydrogenated oil (stuff you don’t want floating
around in your arteries). One tablespoon is 32 calories-and who
stops at one?
Doughnuts-White flour, vegetable shortening, white sugar,
deep fried. Do I need to say more? One glazed Crisy Kreme
packs 200 calories and 12 grams of fat, including saturated fat,
trans fat and cholesterol, all heart stoppers. An old fashioned
cake doughnut has 300 calories, 28 grams of carbs and 19 grams of fat. The
American Heart Society recommends that only 30% of our diet should come
from fat; that’s about 65 grams in a 2,000 calories daily diet. Throw down a
couple of doughnuts with your coffee and your daily fat quota is sunk.
Fettuccine Alfredo-What’s not to love: longs strips of fettuccine drenched in butter, cream and parmesan cheese. Eat a
forkful and your worries will disappear-until your next physical.
A 3 ounce serving (the size of your fist) has 543 calories and 33
grams of fat ( 19 of which are saturated).
Sausages-Most of us have never met a sausage we didn’t like. Drench them
with maple syrup at breakfast or boil them in beer for the race and you’ve got
a crowd pleaser. Unfortunately, a single pork sausage link packs 217
calories and 19.5 grams of fat-definitely not a waistline whittler.
Fried Chicken-A fried chicken breast has nearly 400 calories
and 22 grams of fat. The Colonel wouldn’t be happy to hear this,
but those heaping platters of fried fowl have to go.
Imitation Cheese in a Can-Hard as it is to believe, some people
really love this stuff. 2 tablespoons-the amount on 2 crackers-pumps in 276
calories and 21 grams of fat (13 grams of which are saturated).
French Fries-One large order (6 ounces) of fast food fries has 570
calories, half of which are from fat (which is why, of course, we
love them). If you also order 8 or 9 onion rings, add 276
calories and 16 grams of fat to your rapidly increasing waistline.
Spongy White Bread-You might as well have a candy bar. It offers
little other than 65 calories per slice of white flour, a simple and
rapidly digested carb that causes your blood sugar to rise and crash,
like any simple sugar.

WHERE IT STARTED
In the 1800’s most people got married in June because they
took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good
by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the
custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.
Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high,
with no wood underneath. It was the only place for
animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small
animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof When it rained
it became slippery and sometimes the animals would
slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying .
It's raining cats and dogs.
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey. The
combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for
a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would
take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They
were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days
and the family would gather around and eat and drink
and wait and see if they would wake up.
Hence the custom of holding a wake.

(One win per year per household)
England is old and small and the local folks
started running out of places to bury people. So
they would dig up coffins and would take the
bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave.
When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins
were found to have scratch marks on the inside
and they realized they had been burying people
alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of
the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up
through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone
would have to sit out in the grave yard all night
(the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus,
someone could be saved by the bell or was
considered a ...dead ringer..

In an effort to keep everyone updated on borough business I am going to present a
brief insight of the monthly meetings. Council: Mayor-Frank Schnee, PresidentHarvey Marshall, Vice President-Joyce Phillips, Jeff Gerhart, Mike Frasch, Dave
Rohrbach, Elsa Wertz, Vernon Bright, Secretary- Lisa Heilman, Treasurer-Jim
Clay, Solicitor-Andy George, Engineer-Dave Bright Visitors : Dave Randler, Bob
Pierce, Donnie Swope, Abby Wertz, Janelle & Ben Harakel, Randy Gartner, Kevin
& Vicki Richards, Bob Behrle II, Allan Eberly, Marianne & Shawn McCloy.
Donnie Swope EMC discussed new standards for NIMSCAST 2008. Council
member Phillips questioned if anyone monitors what is stored in the storage sheds
at the school. Mr. Swope advised that there are rules to follow and the Fire
Department could potentially do inspections on the sheds. Randy Gartner
thanked council for waiving the fees for use of the pavilion for the Robesonia
Furnace Festival. He also recommended his sister, Barb Orth, for the open seat on
the Womelsdorf-Robesonia Joint Authority. During the meeting Barb Orth was
appointed to carry out the remainder of Bob Gilbert’s term. Shawn McCloy inquired as to the status of the noise ordinance. Mr. McCloy played a tape recording
of the noisy neighbors (taped 50 feet away) of the music being played in the
garage. The McCloys are subject to the loud music and noise for sometimes hours
a day. Council is in the process of setting an allowable decibel reading for a future
ordinance and enforcement to stop excessive noise. Vickie Richards asked if
council had made any progress in extending the sight lines at dangerous intersections in the Borough. Mayor Schnee was absent so there was no further report on
the progress. Mrs. Richards also suggested a zoning permit fee. Members of
council feel residence already pay enough in taxes and the borough is doing OK
financially at this time so they see no need for additional fees. Mrs. Richards
also wanted an update on the properties that are being pursued by the Codes
Enforcement Officer. Updates to follow. Allan Eberly again asked council about
specifications regarding enclosures for ponds. It was explained that the boro
adopted the International Residential Code and the Uniform Construction Code.
There is nowhere in either code requiring anything specifically for garden ponds.
Codes refer only to swimming pools over 24” in depth. (It would be extremely
difficult to regulate garden ponds and require fencing because there are so many
and all are different sizes and some are portable fountains. In my development 25
of the 50 homes have ponds or fountains without incident. They are all different
sizes but none are over 18” in depth. As of now there is no permit or restrictions
when installing a pond or fountain as part of your landscaping). Council again
discussed moving the 25 mph sign at the Sunoco back to where it would be more
visible. Dave Bright informed council that the Meadow Avenue bridge project is
well on schedule. Parks & Recreation asked council’s approval to spend $360 on
special programs for the playground. Council approved Jump Factory $200 &
Toadilly Cool, a reptile program $160. Discussed was the status of the sidewalk
repair letters. Council member Frasch would like the letters out by the end of August. Council member Phillips asked council’s consent to send out letter seeking
input from Heidelberg Township and Wernersville Borough on a possible merger
of police departments. Council agreed.

REAL ESTATE TODAY
In these times of uncertainty with our finances and expenses, many people are
unsure what to do when it comes to selling their homes or purchasing a new
home. Sharon Talys of Century 21 Park Road, one of our areas finest realtors,
explains to clients that are “on the fence” when deciding what to do with their
homes that they may not get as much for their home as they would have last
year but they also won’t be paying as much for a property either. Lucky for us,
Berks County has not been hit as hard as the rest of the country in the real estate
markets. Not that things are booming, but they could be a lot worse. Sharon
says. “There are a lot of nice buys in Berks County.” Although she recognizes
the changes in the real estate market, she thinks there are plenty of good opportunities for those looking to move. With a 30 year fixed mortgage hanging
around 6.375% you really can’t go wrong locking into that rate on a property
you chose to live in or have as an investment. 12 years ago the rate was at
6.100% which is almost as good as what you can get today. I have noticed more
people are investing in real estate buying as many as 10-15 properties, fixing
them up and renting them out. By the time they decide to sell, the market could
be very profitable for them. Are you are thinking about investing, buying or
selling? As long as you choose a home or homes that you can afford, even
through tough times, there is no need to fear making the move. The biggest
problem is school taxes. Make sure you understand how much they will be at
the purchase price amount. With good credit and steady employment you
should meet mortgage requirements. Get out there and find your dream house.
You may be surprised to learn that it’s affordable even in these crazy times.

I hope you are enjoying your summer and finding some time to relax and get
away from it all. The topic for this month is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Nerves
pass through a tunnel formed by wrist bones known as carpals and a tough
membrane on the underside of the wrist that binds the bones together. The
tunnel is rigid, so if the tissues within it swell for some reason, they press and
pinch the nerves creating a painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
This condition is primarily sports-related or due to activities that involve
strenuous or repeated use of the wrists. A similar but less common condition
can occur in the ankle (called tarsal tunnel syndrome) or elbow. Essential oils
such as wintergreen, marjoram, peppermint, basil, cypress and lemongrass can
be very beneficial in
helping to relieve pain,
numbness and tingling.
Also, you should NEVER
use hot packs for any
neurological problems.
Always use COLD packs
to reduce pain and
inflammation.
