APRIL 2014:


Rumors have it that a bear with three cubs is roaming around the boro, toppling garbage cans, looking for food. DO NOT come between the mama bear and her cubs. Be very careful. The bear has been sighted by numerous persons in the boro.

Rumor has it that it is a bear that has a nest in the woods and keeps returning year after year.

Note that unless it is a mama bear and her cubs, black bear are more afraid of you than you are of them. If you find yourself confronting a bear, do not look them in the eyes or run.

Instead, raise your arms and yell—Go bear, or anything—and it should turn and run. While walking in the area talk loudly, whistle, sing, whatever, to warn the bear so it can run before you see it.

Take your bird feeders in the house at night, and make certain not to have foodstuff on your property.

Here’s an article on bears: Bear Attack Tales With a Tinge of Humor

Be safe. Know your bear facts.


Three deer ran across the road in front of me the other day. Then there were five deer in my yard. Be careful driving, use caution. Don’t get smashed by one of them.
