The beauty of the natural world of the Upper Delaware River area always restores my soul, particularly in these tumultuous times. Seeing an eagle, celebrating nature at various times of the day, and feeling a connection with the landscape allow me to stay grounded and optimistic.

‘And the country will collapse’
The U.S. Senate appears to be large on bailing out a couple of big businesses, but when it doesn’t help the vast majority of Americans, there’ll be no employees to sustain these businesses and the nation will fall. If it doesn’t encourage instruction, there’ll be no future employees to sustain those businesses and the country will fall. If it doesn’t finance healthcare and coronavirus protections, there’ll be no employees to sustain those businesses and the nation will fall. In case it doesn’t help the vast majority of Americans that there will be no customers of goods and the nation will fall. If it doesn’t encourage little farmers and businesses, then smallish cities across America will evaporate and the nation will fall.
Understand? We are in need of help now. The Senate should vote on the bills that have passed from sthe House (such as the Heroes Act) or the nation will fall and the senators are going to be from a job such as the 36 million Americans who maintain this nation. Call your senator now!

No sale of Liberty adult attention and rehab centre
I spoke in the public hearing July 16 as a part of the Senior Legislative Action Committee of Sullivan County and as a retired worker from the Sullivan County Office for the Aging.
The precipitous purchase of this Liberty adult care and rehab center has to be immediately ceased. It’s incredible that this exact same underhanded, money-grabbing scam which Orange County attempted to pull Valley View nursing home in 2017, which Josh Potosek was hauled straight back in 2013, is once again poised to be rammed through a different of Chairman Doherty’s celebrity chamber authorities offensives. In 2017, Orange County Legislators attempted the exact same bullying tactics against Valley View Nursing Care and Rehabilitation Center, falsely asserting the facility was financially threatening to Orange County taxpayers. This was shown as the lie it had been following a Grand Jury investigation discovered that Valley View’s financing were criminally mishandled along with a brand new capable administrator/manager was set in charge. Since that 2017 conclusion, Valley View revealed a $6.7 million gain, with greater yields continued to accrue with the passing years. Recognizing the suggested Liberty care centre sale for your money-grubbing scam it is, Sullivan County Legislators will need to have a page in the Nancy Reagan playbook of governmental policy and only say no to the particular sale. Time to spoil this lousy idea once and for all.

Say no more to Frontier Airlines
I had bookings in March to visit my grandma. On account of this virus, they have been canceled.
I tried phoning Frontier daily for a couple of weeks and has been told that the time expired to make use of the charge of $150.80. I was also pumped continuously.
I’m 74 years old and need to view them.
Please inform everyone don’t utilize Frontier Airlines. I believe they’re using the cash for their benefit and robbing the people.

Cancer screening through a pandemic
Screening for cancers utilizing evidence-based screening evaluations saves lives. Screenings are available for breast, breast, lung and colon cancers. At the first half of 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many routine screenings could not be completed in a timely fashion. According to the National Cancer Institute, this could account for thousands missed cancer cases and cancers diagnosed at a later stage, affecting overall mortality from these cancers for years. If you have missed a routine screening or think you are due, please contact your primary care practitioner about assessing your risk for these cancers and discussing screening options. For example, some tests can be done at home for colon cancer screening and may be an option for patients. Also, many screening sites are open with procedures in place to protect patients from this spread of this virus. Remember to wash your hands or use sanitizer, wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth and maintain social distancing to help reduce the spread of the virus. If you need assistance with getting screened, please contact the Community Based Cancer Screening Navigation Program in the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute in the 570/941-7984.
