– Borrow-A-Bridesmaid –
Book Tells Tale of Hired Bridesmaid
dant than the Cake Boss, Piper falls for
Charlie Bell, the brother of a client. A fellow aspiring writer, Charlie’s the only person recently who’s encouraged Piper to
follow her dreams. Not to mention, he’s
pretty darn cute.
But when Charlie turns out to be the
groom in one of her gigs—and set to marry
the craziest bridezilla of them all—Piper
must band together with her newfound
friends and stop Charlie from making the
biggest mistake of his life.
Borrow-A-Bridesmaid was inspired by
author Anne Wagener’s own ten turns as
a bridesmaid. Her bridesmaid adventures
run the gamut from a Las Vegas elopement
to an elegant English castle wedding.
When she’s not writing, Anne enjoys playing her ukulele and reading. She lives in

Craigslist ad offering yourself up as a hired
bridesmaid! So begins the hilarious, touching, coming-of-age novel, Borrow-ABridesmaid from debut author Anne
Borrow-A-Bridesmaid is the story of
Piper Brody, a recent college grad who
decides to rent herself out on Craigslist—
as a hired bridesmaid. Her airport bookseller job just isn’t bringing home the turkey bacon, and no one’s going to pay her
to analyze Milton’s poetry. Turns out, having an English literature degree from an
upstanding university isn’t all it’s cracked
up to be.
Piper’s Craigslist endeavor soon picks up
steam, netting her clients such as Southern peach Stacey, whose interracial marriage causes a family feud, and Alex, a brideto-be who’s so type A she’s type A-plus.

Well, at last, summer
weather, although not summer itself, is in full swing. The
season offers more opportunities than any other. There
are, however, hazards which
we should take all precautions to avoid, a topic I promised to focus on last week.
Given the condition of the
Allegheny, water hazards
rank very high up on the list.
As this is being written, the
river is high and muddy,
docks are threatening to pull
loose, and logs and other debris are floating by. Personally, I will not take my boat
out under such conditions.
Not only am I concerned
about safety, but I can not
help but think that running
muddy water through the
motor will cause damage.
Regardless of water conditions, safety should be the
number one factor when
With the arrival of warm
weather, insects and spiders
work their way into the outdoor picture. Bees, and even
more so, their nasty cousins,
the wasp family, are a constant concern. It is very easy
to unwittingly disturb a nest,
and if you do that, the consequences can be indeed dire.
For most of us, a sting is just
painful, but if you are allergic
to the venom, be sure to carry
the proper medication when
The black widow and
brown recluse are our two
poisonous spiders. Many
years ago, I suffered a brown
recluse bite while on a camping trip in another state. The
bite led to necrosis and other
complications. It required
medical treatment, and took
weeks to heal, and I still carry
the scar. It should be noted
that all spiders, whether poisonous or not, will bite. Their
fangs are filthy, and the filth
can lead to nasty infections.
Spiders also have some
nasty cousins, namely ticks.
In recent years, these have
become a real problem in
these parts. The two most
common are the American
dog tick and the deer tick,
also known as the black
legged tick. Ticks can carry a
variety of diseases, including,
in the case of the deer tick, the
dreaded Lyme disease. If a
bullseye shaped inflammation appears after a tick bite,
get medical attention immediately. All bites should be
cleaned carefully, and antiseptic should be applied.
Ticks are pretty easy to
spot. They are a disgusting,
bulbous knob on the skin. To
remove them, they should be
gripped as close to the skin as
possible, with care being
taken to not leave the head
and/or mouth parts embedded, as this increases the
chances of infection. There
are little tick removal tools on
the market, and they work
really well. Once you get a
tick out, don’t crush it with
your fingers, as this contributes to the release of the
germs carried by the tick.
Burning them is the best way
to get rid of them. Wash your
hands thoroughly after handling ticks and, if you or your
pet exhibit any signs of illness, seek immediate medical
or veterinary attention.
Not to be overlooked are
the poisonous plants, such as
poison ivy, poison oak and
poison sumac. These plants
are really common, and can
invade just about anywhere,
including your yard. They all
contain a substance called
urushiol, which can cause an
almost unbelievably nasty outbreak on the skin. Nobody is
totally immune to this toxin.
If you come into contact with
these plants, you must get the
toxin off you as soon as possible. A strong soap, such as
Fels-Naptha, will do a good
job. Clothing should be
washed thoroughly, and I do
mean thoroughly. Shoes and
boots should be given a vigorous washing or wipe down.
As wonderful as it is, sunlight can also be a hazard. A
sunburn is bad enough in itself, but repeated exposure to
the sun’s ultraviolet rays can
cause skin cancer. People like
me, with red hair and freckles, are among the most susceptible. You should get into
the habit of using sunscreen,
being careful to not miss any
exposed skin. Once, on a
shore fishing trip to
Chapman Dam, I missed the
outside of my right ankle. It
was an especially hot and
sunny day, and I was out in it
the whole day. The end result
was a horrifically large blister,
along with days of agonizing
pain. In fact, I had to use a
cane when getting out of bed
in the morning, as I couldn’t
stand pressure on the ankle
when I first got up. It’s another scar that I carry to this
Space, of course, prohibits
discussing all of the hazards
we face in the outdoors, including lightning, falls, grilling and frying accidents, and
many others. Danger should
not prevent you from enjoying the wonders of the outdoors. A bit of caution and
common sense will usually
keep you safe.

In case you hadn’t noticed, that was a breath of fresh air
breezing through the golf world. It’s been building for a few
years, but it really came to life this past April, when Jordan
Spieth turned in a record-breaking performance to win the
Masters. He’s only 21, and he faced down some veteran players, and in the process he felt pretty good about himself. So
did the rest of us, golf fans and non-fans alike.
What amazes everyone is the way Spieth blends his youth
with a maturity beyond his years, and it’s really no stretch at
all to trace it to his schooling back in Dallas, his home town.
Listen to Steve Koch, the athletic director at Jesuit College
Preparatory School, which claims Spieth as a graduate of its
class of 2011: “He says what he believes. He believes in supporting others, taking care of others before he takes care of
Or listen to Colette Corbin of St. Monica’s, Spieth’s elementary school: “Jordan was always respectful to staff and students alike. He was one of those kids that would just stay and
help clean up in the cafeteria if he saw that I was short of
students helping. He was considerate of others’ feelings and
tried to include other students that might otherwise not be
part of a group.”
They were among those who spoke to Seth Gonzales of The
Texas Catholic, the Dallas diocesan newspaper, for a story
distributed by Catholic News Service. Dallas was where Spieth
was already something of a local celebrity when he was named
Junior Golfer of the Year and led his high school golf team to
three state championships.
The Jesuit golf coach, Cathy Marino, remembers that while
Spieth obviously stood out as a golfer, he was always “one of
the guys.” Herself a 10-year veteran of the LPGA, she continued: “He was a regular high school kid a lot of the time and I
was glad to see that. I think that’s important, especially once
you turn pro and it becomes a business.”
Spieth’s biggest fan says something about his priorities.
She’s his teen-age sister, Ellie, and she’s autistic. His concern
for her, at golf courses all over the country, is already the stuff
of legend, and he made sure he had his family with him at
Augusta, Georgia, when he won the Masters. So were his high
school buddies—but not the Jesuit golf team, getting ready
for a tournament of their own. Jesuit golfer Cameron Suhy
summed up their reaction:
“It was pretty nerve-wracking the whole week, just watching him having to sit on the lead, but when he finally pulled it
out it definitely gave our team a lot of confidence. We saw that
a kid from Jesuit could win on golf’s biggest stage.”
There’s a long road ahead for Jordan Spieth, and it will be
interesting to see if he’ll always be “the kid from Jesuit.”
Michael Earsing, president of the school, will be a watchful
“I think it’s a hope of everybody who works in Catholic
education,” he said, “that you see somebody who is achieving
at such a high level, who is also a wonderful model for our
students. Jordan is just the common man who achieves greatness, through the blessings and talent God has given him to

A Trip Through
A Trip Through The Canal
When a tooth becomes
badly infected, it can only be
saved by a root canal procedure that involves removal of
the nerve and pulp inside the
tooth. This "endodontic
treatment" is preceded by injection of local anesthetic, after which an opening is created in the tooth's crown and
into the pulp chamber. After
the pulp is removed, the
chamber is cleansed and enlarged. Then, a temporary
filling is set into the tooth's
crown. On the next visit, the
temporary filling is removed
and the root canals are filled
with special rubber-like material and permanently
sealed. Again, a temporary
filling is set in place, which is
subsequently removed when
a crown is placed on the restored tooth.
P.S. because a tooth's nerve
serves no other purpose than
to provide the sensation of
hot or cold after the tooth has
emerged through the gums,
its removal with root canal
treatment alters neither the
tooth's health nor its function.

Tom’s Riverside and Ray Family
Donate $50,000 to
Clarion County YMCA
Knox-Tom’s Riverside Quality Foods and the Ray Family are one of the latest local businesses to donate $50,000
toward the new Clarion County YMCA.
“We’re celebrating our 45th year in Clarion County this
year, and we wouldn’t have been here this long without the
support of our customers and us supporting our communities,” said Tom Ray, president of Tom’s Riverside Quality
Foods. “Along with our three stores, Marsha and I are donating along with my mother, Avnonelle Ray, who will be 90
years young this year, but could not attend today’s presentation.”
Milissa Bauer, co-chair of the YMCA Campaign Cabinet,
described the Ray gift as one of the key reasons the new YMCA
will be built thanks to the difference made by local business
“With Tom’s Riverside grocery stores in Knox, New
Bethlehem and Rimersburg, the new location by I-80 will be
more convenient for our customers to use the YMCA,”said
Ray. “And we all really hope a lot of people do, because there’s
no downside to being healthy.”
The $8.1 million full-service Clarion County YMCA will be
located near Exit 62 of I-80 and the Clarion Oaks Golf Course.
The campaign’s silent phase has already raised over $5.4 million (almost 70 percent) from lead gifts and commitments by
a small group of key individuals, including more than
$600,000 in pledges from the local YMCA Board. A community campaign for the remaining $2.7 million is now being
“The yew YMCA will benefit the area in many ways, whether
you use the facility or not,”said Ray. “For Clarion County to
grow again, we need new businesses to locate here and create jobs and a brand new health and fitness facility will be
another ‘plus’ in picking Clarion County over other areas.”
The new project, among other facilities, will bring access to
a four-lane lap swimming/therapy pool and other year-round
recreation activities that the YMCA provides because of its
501(c) 3 status.

local musicians play pieces
from the mid-nineteenth century.
Comprised of 50 spinners
and weavers from northwest
Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio

Northwest Pennsylvania Spinners and Weaver Guild is
dedicated to promoting education and interest in the arts
of spinning, dyeing, weaving
and fiber related techniques.
