  • Chamber Update

    As I write this column, I am still looking at piles of snow left from Jonas, the huge snowstorm that walloped us on January 22. This has been quite an experience for everyone. Many businesses and restaurants lost business during the time when we were all waiting to get plowed out. Keep those places in mind when you’re making your Valentine’s Day plans! We have tremendous florists, restaurants and retailers that can provide whatever you have in mind for a special someone on any occasion.
    On February 4, we installed our officers and directors for 2016 at a dinner at Chartwell Country Club. At the installation dinner, we presented the first-ever Harmony Award. The Harmony Award...

  • Some Things Need Doing, Others Need To Be Undone

    In his book titled “What I Saw in America,” G.K. Chesterton wrote the following: “We are perpetually being told in the papers that what is wanted is a great man who will do things. [However], what is wanted is a great man who will undo things; and that will be a real test of greatness.
    “I am not a great man,” he continues. “But American history is populated by some great men and women whom I have come to admire. Many of them had the vision and the courage to oppose the status quo – to take a stand against entrenched interests.”
    During my first year of service on the county council, I have become more convinced that we need to stop adopting...

  • Don’t Get SAD, Get Better

    Winter can be a downer. Snow, ice, unsafe driving conditions, bitter cold – all of these factors can make winter seem depressing. But winter blues are more than just a passing notion; each year, some people get SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder.
    SAD is a clinically diagnosable form of depression that can result in overeating, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and loss of interest in daily activities. Scientists theorize that SAD is brought on not only by the drop in temperature but by the reduced amount of daylight. In essence, our bodies respond to the change in season by slowing us down physically and emotionally.
    For seniors, SAD can be especially debilitating. The National...
