Muncy Locals Mar. 7, 2018

March 8, 2018
By BARBARA C. BARRETT , The Luminary

I saw my first sign of spring this week. The snow geese are back in Pennsdale. They don't stay long, and there are many of them.

Kudos to Dick's Sporting Goods in Muncy Township for their decision to no longer sell assault-style weapons and for raising the minimum age for gun sales in their store to 21. It shows they listened to the efforts of all those young people and students who pleaded to make a change. The issue of school safety and security was discussed with the Pennsylvania House of Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness. According to Rep. Garth Everett under Act 55 of 2017, schools are encouraged to conduct at least one security drill per school year in each school building. The security drills may be used in place of one of the school's monthly fire drills. PA schools are required to have an emergency plan. He also informed us that the House Education Committee will hold a hearing on March 15 to look further at prevention methods.

Pennsylvania has launched a new website for seniors and those with disabilities so that we can find services close to home. It is a Community Care website with a wide variety of resources including a home care directory and an information referral tool. There are 12 categories, but I like the directory the best which was helpful trying to find assistance for my mom who is 90. You can find services for personal care, in-home care and assistance for just about any need. Go to www.carelink.pa.gov.

Meagan Murray from Meagan's Box Foundation is having a fundraiser on Thursday, March 22 at Hoss's restaurant. Twenty-five percent of your food bill will go towards the foundation to buy toys and clothing for children at Christmas time.

March is Colorectal Awareness Month and National Nutrition Month. Helen Hiserman from Muncy gave a wonderful talk on nutrition for a healthy heart at the Muncy library. She introduced me to another modality to lower my blood pressure without medications. Her medical technology known as ONDEMED focuses on biofeedback that "jump starts" cellular activity to encourage repair, reduce inflammation and improve blood circulation. She said it was invented in Germany after 25 years of research.

I went to the quilt show Saturday afternoon in Allenwood and was impressed at the amount of history displayed, not only in quilt making, but books made from cloth with stories of WWI soldiers and ancestors. Sue Keller said she took over 500 photos and will be putting some of the highlights, and the 160 quilts on the SVQG Facebook page. Both men and women did a great job on setting up the display, and I only wish I would have had more time to stay longer to take in all of the outstanding talent and creativity. I look forward to the next show in 2020.
