Good Habits for a Healthy Life

ESTATE OF Anna M. Gallo, Dunmore, Pennsylvania (died June 20, 2017). Notice is hereby given that Letters Testamentary on the above Estate have been granted to Anthony T. Mercuri, Jr., of Clarks Summit, PA and Paul T. Mercuri, of Chaparral, NM. All persons indebted to the said estate are required to make payment and those having claims to present the same without delay to the Executor (s) named herein, or to Nicholas D. Tellie, Esquire, Tellie & Coleman, P.C., 310 East Drinker Street, Dunmore, PA 18512.

Experiencing a healthy and long life can start with several things, including a proper diet, adequate sleep, exercise, and drinking plenty of water. Try to eat as many whole foods as you can as opposed to processed foods. The reason processed foods are enriched in the first place is because their process has stripped them of virtually all their vital nutrients. By eating natural foods instead of processed you allow your body to have the nutrients it needs to fight disease and allow you to live a longer, healthier life. Most of us know the importance of physical activity and physical fitness. You don’t need to become a professional athlete, just make time for regular physical activity a few days a week. Drinking enough water every day is extremely important. Water aids different parts of your body, including your heart, skin and digestive system. Physical activity, diet, adequate water, enough sleep, and ridding yourself of bad habits such as smoking and overeating will greatly increase your chances of fighting off disease and living a long and full life.

Local high school freshman learned to see the world in a whole new way through an optical physics investigation that was part of the University of Success’ Summer Institute at The University of Scranton. The investigation involved the students applying refraction of light through thin lenses by building their own telescopes and microscopes. The students mounted lenses on an optics bench to find focus and used light to project an image upside down on a blank sheet of paper. The 21 students also learned about how the eye perceives objects with a human eye model demonstration. The two-week Summer Institute is the first step in a multi-year, pre-college program that is designed help the high school freshmen develop the skills needed to apply and successfully gain acceptance to college. The University of Success offers enrichment courses in study skills, SAT prep, public speaking and cultural activities, as well as financial aid and wellness seminars. It also provides lessons in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in a college setting. The students from 10 area school districts will return to the University’s campus one Saturday every month throughout their four years in high school. The University of Success, offered free of charge to participants, is funded almost entirely by corporate and foundation grants from various organizations. Local students who completed the

Yellow caution tape marked the finish line for the Dickson City Days rubber duck races along the stretch of the river near Bernard Seminski Park on Elm Street in the borough.
