There are still fixed costs that need to be paid each month.” “Never before have we done so much with so little, says DeSmith. “We owe it all to generous volunteers and board members who put the time in to develop quality programs for children in our community. Raise the Region is a chance for us all to work together once more.” This 30 hour online giving event begins Wednesday, March

10 at 6 pm through Thursday, March 11 at 11:59 pm. Contributions can be made at https://www.raisetheregion.org/organizations/lewisburgchildren-s-museum. Questions can be directed to: lewisburgchildrensmuseum@ gmail.com or 570768-4914.

The museum offers educational programming such as music classes, art workshops, language classes, science activities, an monthly story times. The museum also offers field trip opportunities for preschools and elementary schools, and children can celebrate birthdays in the museum’s dedicated party room.

How and Why to Build a Raised Garden Bed This Season

VALLEY AUCTIONS growing environment, as most people economical material and will likely last

(StatePoint) Fairly easy to construct and even easier to maintain, raised garden beds are a great way to raise plants and vegetables in the comfort and convenience of your backyard. In a recent episode of the Exmark Original Series, “Done-in-A-WeekendExtreme,” landscape designer and show host, Doug Scott, spoke to organic gardener Joe Lamp’l of “Growing a Greener World” about the ins and outs of raised garden beds. Here are some of the top insights and tips Lamp’l shared. • Why use raised garden beds? A raised garden bed can help facilitate the ideal

don’t have that perfect soil naturally in their yard. Their accessibility makes them easier to work in and maintain. Plus, they’re a nice architectural design element in any landscape. • What’s the ideal size? The main rule of the thumb applies to width. The bed should be no wider than 4 feet, as you never want to compact the soil when working. Length however, is based on personal preference and needs. As far as height is concerned, you want the roots to be able to grow out and down as much as possible -- 6-inches at minimum. While 12-inches is common, anything higher is a bonus. • What materials work best? Treated lumber is the most readily available and

the longest, however, being an organic gardener Lamp’l prefers untreated hardwood, as it lasts almost as long and doesn’t contain chemicals. Other materials you have around the home and yard, such as rocks, old tubs, etc., can work too. • Where’s the best location? Build your raised garden bed on level ground, in full sun exposure near a water supply. DIY Instructions: To build a 10-foot x 4-foot x 18-inch raised bed, you’ll need: • Nine 6-inch x 6-inch x 12-foot cedar timbers • Tape measure, t-square and marking pencil • A saw and extension cord • One box of 10-inch heavy-duty exterior wood screws • Ten 24-inch x 1/2-inch rebar stakes • Twenty 10-inch galvanized timber spikes • Sledgehammer • Impact drill and long drill bit • Level • Hammer • Shovels • Hardware cloth, wire cutters and fence staples • Work gloves, safety glasses and ear plugs • Wheelbarrow (to transport soil)

We want to know. Send us your testimonial. Testimonials: (Looking for some new comments of success) Fall 1991 and January 1992 Testimonials: My cousin and his new wife (both in their early 40’s) were visiting my mom, my sister, and I. My sister asks, “So, how did you meet?” They kind of giggled and asked each other, “Should we tell them?” They said they met through the LYBL column. My sister and I decided we would try our fare at meeting “Mr. Right”. (BTW, my cousin and his wife are still married and hopelessly in love.)

5 Ways to Go Beyond Saying ‘Thank You’ to Military Service Members

(StatePoint) How do you thank someone who’s willing to risk their life for yours? When it comes to military service members and their families, advocates say there are many avenues for giving back meaningfully. As part of its “Give More Than Thanks” campaign celebrating 80 years of being the “Force Behind the Forces,” the United Service Organizations (USO) is inviting Americans to take actions that can make a tangible difference in the lives of service members. Here are five ideas to get you started: 1. Offer Skills or Services. Many service members face difficulties translating the skills and experience they acquired in the military to civilian jobs. Others struggle to adjust to the norms of the civilian workforce. Meanwhile, military spouses face professional obstacles throughout their service member’s career due to constant moves and deployments. Consider offering career advice or volunteering to guest lecture via military transition programs, such as the USO Pathfinder Transition Program, which equips service members and military spouses with tools needed to tackle the civilian job market. If you own a business or are a leader in a company, advocate for hiring qualified veterans. By

offering practical support, you’re not only thanking service members, you’re helping build an inclusive community that bridges the civilian-military divide. 2. Send a Care Package. Care packages filled with treats and reminders of home let troops know that friends, family and the American people are thinking of them, even from thousands of miles away. However, the process of sending military care packages can be complicated. One easy way to do so is through USO Wishbook, where you can select a symbolic gift from a catalog to be sent to service members. 3. Support Military Spouses. Deployments are challenging for both service members and their spouses. Reach out to a military spouse whose service member is deployed and offer to cook their family dinner, or to pick up groceries. Simply reaching out to see how they are doing can also make all the difference. 4. Volunteer. Put your gratitude into action. Many USO locations across the country need volunteers who can facilitate programs and events – virtually or safely in person – that provide the military community with the support needed to carry out their missions. 5. Donate. The USO has been expressing its thanks to service members by supporting the troops since World War II. Today, that gratitude is shown in USO locations around the globe; these brick-and-mortar centers serve as a home away from home for deployed

service members, and a place of respite for the larger military community. USO programming keeps deployed troops connected to loved ones, provides resources for service members and their families and boosts the morale of the entire military community through entertainment and other supportive events. Charitable donations to the USO help make that mission possible. To learn more about the USO’s work and discover additional ways to give more thanks, visit USO.org/morethanthanks and follow the conversation at #MoreThanThanks. “Our service members and their families’ sacrifices require us to rise to the challenge. All Americans, united in spirit and action, can change the lives and communities of our military, and thus, our country, for the better,” says J.D. Crouch II, CEO and president of the USO. ----------------------------------------------- --------------------------------

5 Tips to Get Your Garage Organized And Keep It That Way

VALLEY AUCTIONS

5 Tips to Get Your Garage Organized – And Keep It That Way (StatePoint) Is your garage in disarray? While you dream of a perfectly organized workbench or garage, your reality probably looks more like a sea of random toys, boxes and exercise equipment. Every do-it-yourselfer knows a clean, organized garage is the key to efficient project planning and repairs around the home. As we head into warmer

months, set aside the time to take charge of the space and finally create a sense of tidiness that will last year-round. Follow these five tips to tame the mess and get your garage back in shape: 1. Invest in shelving that accommodates clear storage bins. When it comes to organizing and storing the assortment of cords, car care items, paint supplies and kid’s toys littering your garage, nothing does the job better than clear storage bins. Not only can you categorize items by project or activity type, you can also easily stack them to save space without sacrificing the ability to easily find what you need, when you need it. Invest in taller, wider shelving for the perimeter of the garage to accommodate your chosen bins. 2. Fix or dispose of anything broken or past its prime. There’s nothing worse than scrambling to find a specific tool or product in an urgent situation, only to realize it’s broken, damaged or dried out. As you organize, pay attention to textures, consistencies and expiration dates. Toss and replace any items that have seen better days. For broken tools that seem salvageable, like cracked hoses or broken handles, reach for a professional grade, heavy-duty duct tape like T-Rex Tape to tackle the repair. 3. Utilize ceiling and wall space with hanging storage. From bicycles and skis to rakes and shovels, some equipment is better off stored up and out of your way. Install hanging racks or shelving above the area where you park your vehicles to store larger, heavier equipment, and use a double-sided mounting tape to attach hooks along the sides of your garage for lighter-weight items. 4. Stock up on the essentials so you can make

repairs on the fly. While it’s great to have a wide assortment of tools and supplies, for many projects and repairs you really just need the basics – think max-strength waterproof tape, bungee cords, a hammer, nails and similar essentials. Use these items as the foundation of your garage workstation and stock up on extras to keep onhand for emergencies, camping and other on-thego uses. 5. Give everything a home. Aim to group supplies for similar activities, tasks and repairs together, giving each category a “home.” In addition to helping keep things organized in dedicated spaces, hanging frequently used tools and supplies on hooks or pegboard can make it easier to quickly scan the garage and find exactly what you need. Use your mounting tape to safely and securely create a space to store and display all your go-to items. Interested in more solutions for all your home and DIY needs? Visit www.trextape.com for a wide variety project and repair ideas. Whether you’re working on your car or tackling a weekend DIY project, having all your tools and supplies in order will make all the difference.

VALLEY HEALTH Tips to Stretch Your Dollar When Household Shopping

(c) Valeriy_G / iStock via Getty Images Plus

(StatePoint) Running a household on a budget? Smart shopping strategies can help your family save on favorite foods, wellness essentials and more. To help make your next shopping excursion a success, check out these tips from the experts at Dollar General. • Cleaning Supplies: Streamline spring cleaning -- and save money and space – by opting for a multipurpose cleaner that can be used throughout the home. Enjoy additional savings by purchasing extra of your favorite cleaning supplies when they’re on sale. • Groceries: At the beginning of each week, create a meal plan for your family. Mapping out your meals can help you avoid purchasing

more than you need or items you don’t want. Discount retailers, like Dollar General, are a great place for all the essentials, including spices, dairy, grains, bread, eggs, frozen and canned vegetables and proteins. Consider shopping with brands like Clover Valley that provide a 100 percent guarantee. Organize your visit to the store in advance by checking out DG.com/ easymeals to discover affordable recipe ideas and to create your shopping list on the brand’s mobile app. • Wellness Items: Self-care doesn’t need to be costly. Before heading to a grocery store or pharmacy for wellness products, visit a general retailer first. From remedies for combatting spring allergies to over-the-counter medications, vitamins, skincare and hair care products, the items you restock

most frequently can be found for less at a general retailer than you might expect at a pharmacy or grocery store. • Digital Savings: While physically clipping coupons may no longer be as common as it once was, additional ways to save are here to stay in the form of digital coupons. Take advantage of the savings opportunities digital coupons provide by visiting coupons. dollargeneral.com to enroll or digitally clip coupons. To stay organized and within budget during the spring cleaning season, adopt savvy shopping strategies. *****

Ready, Set…Refresh! Quick Tips to Revitalize Your Most-Used Spaces

VALLEY AUCTIONS

(StatePoint) Have the cold winter months left your home feeling a bit dirty, drab or disorganized? Are you feeling the urge to purge? Then it’s time for some spring cleaning. With a few simple tips and tricks, your home—and mood—can be refreshed and revitalized. For the biggest payoff for your efforts, focus spring cleaning in the areas of the home that are used most: the kitchen and bathroom. Clear kitchen clutter: According to research from the Mayo Clinic, de-cluttering can have a significant positive effect on your mental health and well-being. To start your refresh, toss anything that’s expired or no longer being used. Use a wall-mount spice rack to free up shelf space and keep ingredients within easy reach. Add sanity to the silverware drawer by giving all gadgets their own spaces with Spectrum HEXA In-Drawer Organizers. HEXA organizers feature a unique, six-sided honeycomb base design that offers a sturdy foundation while allowing crumbs to fall through its base away from clean utensils. Simply, “lift and sift” to clean drawers. Labels & liners: Add a new level of organization and personalization to cabinets, drawers and

even wire racks with shelf liners. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, they offer a smooth top and grip bottom for easy sliding of items. Plus, the smooth surface catches messes and spills, making clean-up a breeze. Next, create custom labels for organizer bins with chalkboard or dry erase adhesives from Duck brand. For wire racks, add shelf liner to the bottom to hold items in place. Get savvy at the sink: Next, move to one of the germiest areas of the kitchen: the sink. To keep this area neat and clean, add an organizer (such as Spectrum HEXA Sink Organizer, which has a built-in soap pump) to keep all cleaning essentials—sponges and brushes—upright and dry and help resist the growth of bacteria. Excess water is captured in the base, which can be easily removed and wiped clean. Finally, place a raised mat in your sink basin to encourage air and water flow for faster drying, and to provide extra cushion for fragile glassware. Banish bathroom battles: From towels to toiletries, bathrooms collect a lot of “stuff.” Keep the dailyuse items and purge the rest. If you have limited shower space, use a suction shower basket or shower caddy to hold shampoo and soaps. Add

an over-the-tank toilet paper holder to store extra bath tissue and keep it out of the way. Just like the kitchen, utilize small baskets or HEXA in-drawer organizers to keep everything from makeup to medicine easily accessible and in the right place. Conquer cluttery cords: Conquer cords and countertop clutter by utilizing vertical spaces. Add shelves to walls to hold towels or smaller items, and add over-the-cabinet accessory baskets to the insides of cabinet doors. These easy-toinstall organizers keep items like your blow dryer, straightener and curling iron out of sight, but within arm’s reach, for a faster morning routine. For more unique organizational products, visit www.spectrumdiversified.com and follow the conversation at #LiveLifeOrganized. Soon, with a bit of cleaning and organization focused in key areas of your home, you’ll be feeling refreshed and revitalized this spring. ----------------------------------------------- -------

Don’t Be Shy About Discussing Constipation with Your Doctor

StatePoint) Constipation is something that most people have likely experienced at one time or another. For some people however, symptoms can occur over the long term. Symptomatic individuals and patients should learn more about two types of long-term constipation: Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation (IBS-C). While CIC and IBS-C share many of the same symptoms, there are important differences between the two. One in seven U.S. adults have CIC and those with this condition may experience: • Infrequent bowel movements (BMs) • Hard-to-pass BMs • Straining • Discomfort • Not feeling empty after a BM In addition to symptoms of CIC, patients with IBS-C also experience abdominal pain related to changes in bowel movements, and one in 20 U.S. adults are living with this chronic condition. The causes of CIC and IBS-C are not known. That said, for some, the cause could be linked to changes in the connections between the brain and the gut. If you’re experiencing constipation, you should consider speaking to your doctor who may help address your symptoms. “Your physician can diagnose your condition and offer treatment options that may provide relief,” says Howard Franklin, MD, MBA, chief medical officer, Salix Pharmaceuticals. He suggests asking your doctor the following questions: • What are my options if lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications haven’t worked? • How many bowel movements should I be having each week? • What consistency should they be? Dr. Franklin also recommends coming to your appointment prepared to share what symptoms you’re experiencing and how long you’ve been trying to manage them. You might also be asked to identify what type of stool you most frequently experience when you are not taking medication using the Bristol Stool Form Scale. The Bristol Stool Form Scale is a visual representation of the seven types of BMs that you can have. “While it might seem awkward to talk about, telling your doctor which type or types of stool you typically have can help you both create a treatment plan that works for you and your body,” says Dr. Franklin. “The good news is that now more than ever, it is possible for a doctor to evaluate your symptoms and diagnose IBS-C and CIC during a virtual visit, so take advantage of telehealth appointments.” To learn more about the difference between IBS-C and CIC and for additional resources, visit ConfrontConstipation.com. “If you are experiencing constipation, you are not alone,” says Dr. Franklin. “Constipation is not only common, it’s treatable.”
