In Memory This Memorial Day

Hermayne Gordon, the Rowley children's librarian.

REGIONAL – Massachusetts is the top-performing state for students competing internationally in math and science tests. But the test scores of Bay State students lag behind their counterparts in many Asian and European countries. So libraries across the North Shore are offering summer reading programs for children of all ages that

focus on science. The programs offer incentives, including cool grand prizes, parties and other events, to keep children reading, particularly about science, during the summer months. “I believe if a child is reading, he or she can learn anything. It is the window to the world,” said Continued on page 3

Won’t You Help Save a Life…

Give a swab. Save a Life! Someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer every four minutes. For thousands of cancer patients, a stem cell transplant is their only hope. Many of these patients die before finding a match. Cathy Habeeb Sheehan was one of these patients. She was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in April 2013. She underwent a stem cell transplant in June 2013. Unfortunately the transplant failed. She needed a second lifesaving stem cell transplant. None were found and she died in April 2014.

It was a rainy, damp night on May 13th, but that didn’t stop a good turnout for the Pine Grove PTA Ice Cream Social.

When You Read, You Score

Continued from page 1

Hermayne Gordon, the Rowley Public Library's children's librarian. Summer may be a time to relax from the rigors of school, but it should not be a time to quit learning, to stop reading, educators and librarians say. Consider some statistics from recent studies: Children, who do not read during the summer, can lose up to 25 percent of their reading level or up to three months of education. Between grades one and six, the potential impact of not opening a book in the summer could compound to 1.5 years’ worth of reading development lost. Reading just four books over the summer can prevent the summer slide and increase a student’s reading level. But summer reading must also be fun. And Gordon believes the program at the Rowley library will be just that. “I am excited,� she said. For the young readers, the program, called Fizz, Boom, Read, kicks off June 25 with a carnival at the library with face painting, games and crafts. Children and their parents are invited to participate in the program, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, and pick up their colorful folders to record their reading during the summer. The program at the Rowley library continues until August 13. Children who read books this summer will earn tickets toward a drawing for a grand prize of a year's subscription to National Geographic Magazine. They can select their own books or choose from ones selected for them by the librarians. The books can be fiction or non-fiction, like one Gordon likes about the life of electricity inventor Nikola Tesla. The library also has a program for teens, encouraging them to read books about various aspects of science, such as medicine, robots and infectious diseases. If they read 200 pages or one full book, they earn tickets for the grand prize, which will be a an electronic

tablet. For the teens there will also be weekly drawings for prizes. Tickets can be earned for attending activities at the library or volunteering there for two hours. Thursday evenings are devoted teen activities. There is also an adult summer reading program, called Literary Elements. The rewards for the adults is the joy of reading and learning about new things. “If whole family participates, Mom and Dad are reading, for just 15 minutes a day, it will be fun for the whole family,â€? Gordon said. In Amesbury, the library opens registration for its summer reading program June 16 in the library or on line. Each week the library will feature a different science-related craft for all ages. On June 30, participating children and teens can create a mad scientist. Other events include projects about butterfly metamorphosis, the human body and brain and terrariums. The library is also having some fun outside the library, moving Stein, the Mad Scientist around town to stores and offices downtown. Stein will continue to prowl around Amesbury until August 6. “If you see him, come back to the Library and tell us in the Children’s Room where he is and what book he is reading. You’ll get entered into a rae each week you find him to get yummy ice cream, donuts or bowling,â€? the library web site says. In Georgetown, the library has also launched its science-related summer reading program. For 10 hours of reading, children from birth to sixth grade can earn a free book. For 20 hours, the prize is free children's admission to the Topsfield Fair, plus a free hotdog, soda and ride tickets. For 30 hours, the prizes also include a second book. Other libraries will announce their summer reading program in coming weeks. The Boston Bruins support the summer reading programs with the slogan, “When you read, you score.â€?

Storey Avenue Makeover

yards. So the city is working with a New Hampshire developer, who proposes to redo one of the most visible and dangerous corners of that gateway. City officials would like to use the opportunity to improve the appearance of the entrance to the city that promotes itself as a destination for tourists. “We are keeping a close eye on this project,” said planning director Andrew Card. The goal, Card said, is to create at the corner of Storey and Low Street something that will feel more like a town center than a highway exit. The Institution for Savings, one of several banks along Storey, raised the standard last year when it took a drab one-story branch bank across the street from the new development and built a classic two-story brick building with arched windows and a lighted clock tower. Mike Jones, the bank's president and CEO, called the bank's $3 million renovation to its busiest branch “a good investment.” He said, “This is our future. We hope customers will enjoy it.” Tropic Star Development of Hampton, NH, met again last week with the city's Planning Board to discuss site plans and traffic impacts for its proposal to relocate the Shell gas station at the intersection and build a build a 14,600-square-foot pharmacy, probably a new CVS store with a drive-up prescription window, a new service station and

a 2,500-square-foot convenience store. Tropic Star also proposes to donate more than 20 acres of wetlands as open space behind the new buildings, plus $15,000 to pay for improving access to the acreage. Card said the planning department and planning board want Tropic Star to locate the pharmacy closer to the street so it would look less like a typical commercial strip center. The city would also like for Tropic Star to add brick exterior, instead of the Hardy board siding it is currently proposing. There are also expectations to use the new development to make the street more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. Although there is considerable debate on how to improve this busy and dangerous intersection, Card suggested that a concrete median might help pedestrians cross the state highway easier. He also said the city would like to add bike lanes on Storey to accommodate those bikers who will using the new dedicated lanes on the rebuilt Whittier Bridge of I-95. Some Newburyport residents worry that adding more businesses along Storey will make access to I95 more challenging. Rosemarie Serino opposes the proposed development. She wrote recently: “Why do we need another pharmacy (we already have four), another bank (there are two across the proposed development), another

Kid-Friendly Foods That are also Healthy Appearing in Restaurants Across the Country With summer finally here, many will take the opportunity to spend more quality time with family, and dining out in restaurants is a perfect way to spend that time together. In an effort to meet the growing demand among consumers for more healthful menu options, a number of restaurants - in hometowns across America and at various vacation destinations - are offering more nutritious and great-tasting menu options for kids. Restaurateurs are committed to ensuring the meals they offer for children are healthful, flavorful and innovative. The participants of the National Restaurant Association's Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge initiative offer tangible proof of this. Sponsored by founding partners McCormick For Chefs and Healthy Dining, the challenge gives operators the opportunity to showcase the creative, healthful and flavorful dishes they plan to feature on their menus. During the competition, which uses an "industry tested, kid approved" approach, a panel of food and nutrition professionals select the finalists and a team of elementary school students choose the eventual winners. The Kids LiveWell Recipe Challenge provides chefs and foodservice professionals with a forum to develop nutritious recipes that promote fun dining experiences. National chains, foodservice companies, independent restaurants and noncommercial


healthful menu items when they dine out in restaurants. Many of these nutritious menu options can be found on HealthyDiningFinder. com or by downloading the free Kids LiveWell smartphone app, available in the Android Market and iTunes app store. Restaurateurs and chefs can make the healthful choice the easy choice. Largest Independent Community Parents and their children will keep coming back for more.

One hundred years ago, the average American's life expectancy was between 50 and 60 years, and so the estimated 53,000 centenarians in the United States today have lived much longer than most of their contemporaries. Perhaps that is why a new survey shows that these 100-year-olds feel "blessed" (36 percent), "happy" (31 percent) and "surprised" (12 percent) to have lived so long. Not one reports feeling sad or burdened; only 3 percent say they feel lonely. For the past nine years, UnitedHealthcare has conducted a survey of 100 100-year-olds to gain insight into their lives. For its most recent 100@100 survey, the company also polled 65-year-old baby boomers to examine how the attitudes and lifestyles of people entering their retirement years compare to those who hit that same age 35 years ago. According to the study, one thing both groups agreed on is that they feel younger than their years. On average, the centenarians surveyed

said they feel just 83 years old, while 65-year-old baby boomers said they feel 55 years old. "It's encouraging that older Americans feel more youthful than the number of candles on their birthday cake might suggest," said Rhonda Randall, D.O., chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions. UnitedHealthcare serves more than a quarter of America's centenarians through its Medicare plans. "By looking at how they are living their daily lives, we can glean important insights about the keys to staying healthy and feeling vibrant as we age." The following are some of the secrets to healthy aging, as revealed by the 100@100 survey. Secret 1: Keep up with exercise. Despite their age, centenarians stay active: more than half walk or hike and nearly a third do strengthtraining exercises. Some even run outdoors or play team sports every week (4 percent). Exercise is an important part of boomers' lifestyle

The United States Army, born 6/14/1771 also with roots to the Patriots, the US Army is unstoppable and continues to remind any foe of our country that the price to pay for threatening our way of life is, historically, the loss of theirs. 3. The United States Navy, born 10/13/1775. Above and below the oceans of the world, the USN keeps enemies from our shores by bringing unimaginable warfare to theirs. They are positioned all over the world and they remain ready to turn on a dime to quell any threat to our country. 4. The United States Marine Corps born 11/10/1775, a department of the US Navy, is known throughout the world as the instant and terrifying response to any threat to our country. Specially trained to quickly deploy and conquer enemy territory until the Army arrives, the US Marines are often both the first and the last American warriors an enemy will see coming over the wall at them. 5. The United States Coast Guard born 8/4/1790. The USCG has the duty of protecting our shores and they do so both inside and outside of our borders. They are also deployed throughout the world as our “police department” at sea and are heavily involved in the war on drugs.

Memorial Day is Every Day for our Veterans It is said “If you can read this, thank a teacher. By Janet Hilton, If you can Broker, Esq., read this Country Crossroads in English, thank a Veteran.” My Father served under General George Patton during World War ll and although he died when I was young, I grew up knowing that he saved me from a life without freedom and that he would have given his life to make it so. Realtors interact with many Veterans as they prepare to downsize from homes that no longer meet their needs. They have raised their families. They have done their best. It never ceases to amaze me just how grounded and humble they are about their sacrifices that they rarely discuss. I can never begin to imagine what they have seen, heard, felt and smelled throughout history so that I can write about them as I choose. These are the Services of our Armed Forces and they are the most powerful and righteous warriors in the history of mankind. They stand on the wall in the dark so that we may sleep in peace at night. 1. The United States National Guard, born in Jamestown 12/13/1607, formerly known as the “Militia”, they are our country’s oldest fighting force with roots to the Patriots who shaped our way of life. The Army National Guard has participated in every war and conflict the US has ever fought from skirmishes to World Wars. In more recent times, the Guard protects our country from natural disasters and

9/18/1947 was formerly known as the US Army Air Corps. The USAF like the US Navy projects its military power all over the world. When our ground troops call in for “air support” the clouds open up and terror rains down upon those who have taken up arms against our country. While there has been so much press and pressure about the condition of our housing market and our economy in the recent years, there has never been a time in our country when Americans failed to find the balance. Our elections can be viewed not so much within the context of any particular party, but rather as the collective voice of Americans who continue to rise up against any threat to our way of life whether it is from within our borders or from outside of our borders. We rise up in submarines, PT boats, aircraft carriers, Sherman tanks, fighter jets, helicopters, Higgins landing crafts, parachutes, horseback, boots on the ground, scuba gear…………or in the election booths. There are certain words that can never be said enough and they can never be said enough to certain Americans. Thank you, dearest Veterans. Memorial Day is every day of the year for you.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An unexpected development could change the Arian's perspective on a potential investment. Keep an open mind. Ignore the double talk and act only on the facts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surge of support helps you keep your long-standing commitment to colleagues who rely on you for guidance. Ignore any attempts to get you to ease up on your efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family continues to be the dominant factor, but career matters also take on new importance. You might even be able to combine elements of the two in some surprising, productive way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A realistic view of a workplace or personal situation helps you deal with it more constructively once you know where the truth lies. Reserve the weekend for someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you Leos or Leonas might be intrigued by the "sunny" prospects touted for a potential investment, be careful that you don't allow the glare to blind you to its essential details. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friend's problem brings out the Virgo's nurturing nature in full force. However, don't go it alone. Allow others to pitch in and help share the responsibilities you've assumed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision might need to be put

off until a colleague's personal matter is resolved. Use this time to work on another business matter that you've been anxious to get to. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Relationships (personal or professional) might appear to be stalled because of details that keep cropping up and that need tending to. Be patient. A path begins to clear soon. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A promotion could cause resentment among envious colleagues. But others recognize how hard you worked to earn it, and will be there to support you if you need them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Handling a delicate personal matter needs both your wisdom and your warmth. Expect some setbacks, but stay with it. The outcome will more than justify your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resist the temptation to cut corners just because time is short. Best to move ahead step by step so you don't overlook anything that might later create time-wasting complications. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use the good will you recently earned with that well-received project to pitch your ideas for a new project. Expect some tough competition, though, from an unlikely source. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of family extends beyond your personal life to include others to whom you generously extend your care and affection. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
