Inspection And Permit Services “To burn or not to burn?” Definitely a question on many a mind once the weather breaks and our yards and winter beaten landscapes are screaming, “Please clean me!” Or is the question, “Wouldn't it be perfect if we only had a back yard fire pit?” We could probably kill two birds with the same stone. Yes! That's it! Problem solved.

Sold! Have to get one now, right? Excellent! But first, let's talk safety. The following is what the State provides for the enforcement of regulation associated with open (outdoor) burning: 307.4.1 Bonfires. A bonfire shall not be conducted within 50 feet (15,240 mm) of a structure or combustible material unless the fire is contained in a barbecue pit. Conditions which could cause a fire to spread within 50 feet (15,240 mm) of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition. 307.4.2 Recreational fires. Recreational fires shall not be conducted within 25 feet (7620 mm) of a structure or combustible material. Conditions which could cause a fire to spread within 25 feet (7620 mm) of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition.

So, think about it - from the end of the day glass of wine by the patio fire, to friends over for a weekend bonfire to our next holiday gathering, Memorial Day. Any social gathering around a fire somehow always seems to make the experience much more memorable. Indoor or out.

As for local Township Codes, I would definitely get less complaints from the neighboring properties owners if portions of Ordinance § 131-1 “Prohibited activities” are considered:

unreasonably interferes with the reasonable use, comfort and enjoyment of a neighbor's property or endangers the health or safety of the occupants of a neighboring property. So, the lesson to keep in mind whenever lighting up a fire in the back yard is pretty simple. 1) Not setting the neighborhood ablaze when fires are planned too close to buildings or other combustible materials. 2) Keeping in mind that higher than normal breeze can carry the smoke and possible embers onto and even into your neighbor's kitchen will not make your day any easier. I recommend saving all that fun for another less windy day or those memorable experiences mentioned earlier will obviously not be good ones. Michael V. Pilotti, Chief Building/Fire Official

C. The burning or setting fire to trash, rubbish, refuse or garbage brought upon and accumulated or stored on any premises from any other location or locations.[1] D. Any use of or activity upon properties that by reason of flames, smoke, odors, fumes, noise or dust

Message from Board Chair, Heather Greenberg With snow plows back in the garage for good, Public Works has successfully opened all parks and fields for the spring season. Renovations were made to Wilson Farm Park bathrooms and security surveillance, new seeding on fields, and winter debris removed. Summer camps have been staffed and enrollment is open for all camp programs. Registration links are available at www.Tredyffrin.org.

It takes many people to accomplish all this and sometimes their work is not readily visible to the community. We recognize the staff for their hard work and extend our appreciation on behalf of the community. We hope our residents will take advantage of our beautiful parks and paths as the warmer weather approaches. They are a lovely reminder of the high quality of life we enjoy here in Tredyffrin Township.

In the Spotlight - Public Works The return of color to our trees indicates a very long winter is finally behind us. Winter snowfalls totaled nearly 30 inches in our area, spread out over many events. On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, we would like to thank the Tredyffrin Public Works Department, lead by Darin Fitzgerald. Their tireless efforts kept our roads clear and accessible. They spent many sleepless nights away from their own families to make that happen. By the numbers, this winter utilized over two thousand hours of overtime, over 5 tons of road salt, and over 50 thousand gallons of brine to pre-treat roads and highways. This was a significant increase over the prior year. Public Works' collaboration with the Tredyffrin Police and first responders helped make sure that all residents' needs for emergency assistance during the storms were met. Public safety is our first priority in serving the Township and we are very lucky to have such a professional and dedicated staff to ensure that goal is met.

Paoli Central

You might think that the name “Paoli” was chosen for a little Main Line town purely to separate the locals (who know how to pronounce it) from the out-of-towners (who don't). But, in early April, Paoli welcomed some out-of-towners who knew exactly how to pronounce “Paoli,” because they came from the birthplace of General Pasquale Paoli, the Mediterranean island of Corsica. Among the visitors, here to continue a long-standing relationship between the Paoli Business and Professional Association and the territorial government of Corsica, was Gilles Simeoni, President of the Corsican Assembly, along with the Corsican Minister of Culture, and the Minister of Tourism.

the center of town, so it has housed these mementos ever since. President Simeoni and his compatriots extended a heartfelt invitation to the residents of Paoli to visit the island of Corsica to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches of the coastline and the pristine creeks and granite cliffs farther inland.

Paoli Library, although it can offer no beaches or cliffs, also extends a heartfelt invitation to area residents to come view the statue of General Paoli and to get acquainted with the many unexpected free resources it does offer, from e-books to museum passes to a GoPro camera. The Library is right in the center of Paoli in the Wells Fargo building at the corner of Route 30 and Darby Road.

Pasquale Paoli is Corsica's national hero and second-most-famous native son, after Napoleon Bonaparte. Paoli was a freedom fighter who helped win the island's independence from the Republic of Genoa and served as president of the Corsican Republic during its brief existence from 1755 to 1769. He was also the author of the republic's constitution, considered to be the first ever democratic constitution, based on Enlightenment principles. Although Paoli never visited America, he was an inspiration to the American revolutionaries, and so much admired in this area that an inn was named after him and the town was named after the inn. On Friday, April 6, the delegation stopped by Paoli Library to view the large bust of Paoli and a replica of his ceremonial sword given to the town in 1966 by the mayor of Morosaglia, Paoli's birthplace. In the absence of a town hall or a community center, Paoli Library serves as

The update is designed to ease the use of the system, create a clearer picture with better sound, and improve the overall user experience for programs and presentations.

The system is run by a new touch screen panel and includes a new Sony high definition laser projector, a Blu-ray player, new wireless microphones, and new and easier connectivity for laptops and mobile devices (including an HDMI connection, and screen mirroring capabilities). The meeting room at the Tredyffrin Library continues to host a number of librarysponsored programs focusing on health and wellness, developing professional skills, and interactive events. The meeting room is also available for community organizations to book programs, lectures, and workshops. For more information, please visit the libraries' website at www.tredyffrinlibraries.org, stop in, or call 610-296-7996.

Museum Pass Program Expands at Tredyffrin Public Library Tredyffrin Public Library is expanding the very popular Museum Passes Program. “Five new sites have been added this year,” said Chris Kibler, Director. “The program began in 2016 as part of our 50th Anniversary celebration and in 2017, library users checked out the 3day passes over 1,000 times. Funding from the Friends of Tredyffrin Public Library enables us to offer this fun, family-friendly, educational program at no cost to the public.”

What are the new captivating museums and gardens? Eastern State Penitentiary Museum of the American Revolution Independent Seaport Museum Magic Gardens Wings of Freedom Aviation Museum Four out of the five are in Philadelphia, including the unusual Magic Gardens on South Street at 20th Street. The fifth, Wings of Freedom Aviation Museum, is on Route 611 in Horsham. “Well worth the ride,” reports Chris Casey, secretary of the Friends' Board. “We spent a fascinating afternoon there: they have 17 airplanes on display and a large numbers of artifacts from the Golden Age of Aviation. Their guides are remarkable; so knowledgeable and friendly.” “Pat Woytek, one of our volunteers, negotiated with all of the sites and arranged the passes with each one. Eastern State Penitentiary is one of the latest organizations to offer passes to libraries and we have one of the first passes available from them. What a piece of Philadelphia history, of world history in the struggle with crime and criminals in our society. So educational and eerie,” said Kate Currigan, President of the Friends of Tredyffrin Public Library. “Check the library's website for a complete listing of the available sites. You can reserve a pass online or come into the library,” said Marianne Hooper, administrator of the program. “Most of the passes accommodate a family of four, some for up to eight or more. Act quickly. They are hot items right now and are reserved far in advance.”

In general, the Friends seek volunteers who are booklovers and believe in the value and importance of libraries. We receive over 60,000 books each year; processing and moving this number of donations is arduous. Currently, we are seeking volunteers for the following positions: Sorters: Sorters are at the very beginning of the process. Generous donors leave bags and boxes of books, CDs, DVDs or other items in the drop-off area near the lobby of the Library. Sorters bring down loads of donations to the lower level via the elevator and, working alone or with others, sort all items into designated categories. During a period of training, sorters learn how to turn donations into sellable products, cleaning each one and putting it into the inventory.

CHEMSWEEP Program Provides Safe Pesticide Disposal

Agricultural businesses and pesticide applicators in 19 counties across the state can dispose of unwanted pesticides safely and easily next year through the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture's CHEMSWEEP program. “When pesticides outlive their usefulness, they can become a problem,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Rather than leaving them sitting in barns and back rooms as threats to human safety and our environment, we provide this service to each of Pennsylvania's counties every four years.” The program is offered in different counties each year. In 2018, it will be available in Adams, Allegheny, Beaver, Cameron, Carbon, Centre, Chester, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Franklin, Jefferson, Lancaster, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, Pike, Potter, and Washington counties. More than 2.5 million pounds of unwanted or unusable pesticides have been properly

destroyed through the program since it was established in 1993. Every year, many pesticide products are discontinued, phased out or become unusable, leaving growers, commercial establishments, and professional applicators with potentially dangerous and toxic materials that cannot be placed in landfills. The unwanted pesticides often become a safety hazard and an environmental concern through long-term storage in garages, barns, or other areas.

participating location, primarily for incineration at facilities approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. CHEMSWEEP covers the disposal cost for the first 2,000 pounds per participant. Above that level, participants are billed at the agriculture department's contracted price. The program is funded through annual registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers and applicators. For more information, visit Agriculture’s CHEMSWEEP Program webpage.

Licensed pesticide applicators, pesticide dealers and commercial pesticide application businesses from the designated counties are eligible to participate by completing the CHEMSWEEP registration and inventory form that will be mailed directly to eligible applicators, dealers, and businesses. The registration period ends February 28. An independent contractor hired by the state agriculture department collects and packages all waste pesticides at each

Traffic Unit The Tredyffrin Township Traffic Unit is currently comprised of two officers, Sgt. Michelle Major and Cpl. Kreg Isleib. The officers are responsible for directed traffic enforcement, vehicle crash investigations, motor carrier enforcement, and traffic studies throughout the township. With spring and summer upon us, be aware of the increased bicycle traffic and bicyclists keep in mind the bicycle laws as you enjoy your ride. Did you know that bicycles are subject to the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code? Chapter 35 of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code specifically spells out that bicycle operators must follow the same laws as motor vehicle drivers when on public roadways, including observance of stop signs and traffic signals, riding on the right side of the road, the use of turn and brake signals (including hand signals if electronic signals are not available), the requirement of a headlight when driving Sergeant traffic Ed Spiller at night, and allowing to pass on the left. Additionally, Chapter 35 contains laws specifically for bicycle operators, including: Section 3503: A parent or legal guardian of a minor may be held responsible if that child violates any vehicle laws while operating a bike on a public street. Parents may be responsible for civil damages if their child is involved in an accident while violating vehicle laws. Section 3504: The number of passengers on a bicycle may not exceed the number of seats (including securely attached childcarriers) on the bike. Passengers on handlebars, bike pegs, or in an adult's lap are prohibited.

Section 3505(b): On roads with shoulders, bicycle operators may ride in the shoulder in the same traffic direction as the adjacent vehicle lane. See Section 3511 for restrictions about riding in the shoulder of freeways such as Route 202. Section 3505(e): Bicyclists shall not ride more than two abreast on roadways. This provision does not apply to dedicated bike paths wide enough for multiple bikes. Section 3506: Bicycle operators must keep at least one hand on the handlebars while riding. Packages, bundles, or articles requiring the use of two hands while riding are expressly prohibited. Section 3507(a): In addition to a headlight that must be visible for a minimum of 500 feet to the front, a red reflector visible to a minimum distance of 500 feet must be mounted on the rear of a bike used for nighttime riding. In addition, the bicycle would need to be equipped with an amber reflector on its left and right sides. Allen Dori Additional white front and red rear flashing lights may be added to increase visibility. The bicycle operator may wear the lights provided they meet the minimum distance requirements. Lights and reflectors serve primarily to make the bicyclist visible to other vehicles and secondarily to illuminate the bicyclist's path. Section 3508: Anyone riding a bicycle on a sidewalk must surrender right-of-way to pedestrians. Bicyclists must give an audible signal prior to passing pedestrians or other bicycle operators. Proper etiquette is to announce “Passing to the left” prior to overtaking a pedestrian or cyclist. Bicycles are prohibited on sidewalks in business districts unless permitted by traffic control

devices or if a sidewalk has a designated bicycle-only lane. Section 3510: Any person under 12 must wear a bicycle helmet meeting national standards for safety and protection when operating or riding as a passenger on a bicycle, in a mounted bicycle restraining seat, or when towed in a bicycle trailer. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation strongly recommends that all riders wear helmets when operating a bicycle. Section 3511: Bicycles are prohibited on freeways without prior written permission by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. If permission is granted, bicycle use would be restricted to road shoulders whenever practicable. Anyone seeking permission to bike on a freeway must write a request to the Department of Transportation indicating the lack of reasonable alternative routes. Requests can only be made by bicycle operators 18 years old or older, or 16 years of age or older if accompanied by another bicyclist 18 or older.

DID YOU KNOW? A VEHICLE THAT PASSES A BICYCLE PROCEEDING IN THE SAME DIRECTION SHALL PASS TO THE LEFT NOT LESS THAN FOUR FEET AT A CAREFUL AND PRUDENT PRDUCED SPEED.

Adopt A Highway On Sunday, April 15th, members of the Axiom Asset Management team, including former Supervisor Michael Heaberg, spent their day helping to improve a local roadway as part of PennDOT's Adopt-a-Highway Program. Volunteers gathered close to a dozen bags of trash and cleared a handful of storm drains on Swedesford Road.

LOCAL BUSINESS ADOPTS A LOCAL ROAD

As part of the program, volunteers beautify roadsides two miles at a time. Each volunteer group/individual signs a two-year agreement to pick up litter at least two times a year. In return, PennDOT posts recognition signs along the adopted roadway giving each group/person full credit for their efforts. For more information and to apply to volunteer for the Adopt-a-Highway Program, visit the PennDOT website at: www.penndot.gov/aboutus/RoadsideBeautification/ Pages/Adopt-A-Highway.aspx

Teens Are “Juuling” At School. Here’s What That Means By Jamie Ducharme Updated: March 27, 2018 http://time.com/5211536/what-is-juuling/ The most popular product in the booming ecigarette market doesn't look like a cigarette at all.

What do parents need to know about Juuling?

Although Juul products, like most ecigarettes, are made and marketed as smoking alternatives, the device is increasingly popping up on high school and college campuses. The term Juuling” usually refers to this recreational use.

Because of their sleek design and resemblance to USB drives, Juul products are easy for students to conceal and use in school sometimes even in the middle of class. (Juuls also produce less smoke than many similar devices, making them even more discreet.) The problem has grown widespread enough that school districts in states including Kentucky, A Juul vape. Portland Press Herald - Press Herald via Getty Images Wisconsin, California and The Juul, a trendy vape that resembles a Massachusetts have voiced their concerns flash drive and can be charged in a laptop's and, in some cases, began amending school USB port, accounted for 33% of the epolicy to address the issue. Some college cigarette market as of late 2017, according to publications, including those at New York Wells Fargo data. The product is made for University and the University of Illinois, have and legally available only to adults 18 and also reported on the trend. older, and its “growth appears to be due to growth with the 18 to 24 year old age Ashley Gould, chief administrative officer at group,” according to a Wells Fargo report. Juul Labs, says that the product was created by two former smokers specifically and solely But in many cases, media reports suggest, to help adult smokers quit, and that the these devices are being used by kids and company has numerous anti-youth-use teenagers even younger than that - which initiatives in place because “we really don't has some parents, educators and medical want kids using our product.” Gould also professionals concerned. Each Juul cartridge notes that Juul uses age authentication - which lasts about 200 puffs - has as much systems to sell only to adults 21 and older nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes. online, though most of its sales take place in Here's what to know about “Juuling,” the retail stores, where state laws may allow trend sweeping schools nationwide. anyone 18 and older to purchase the devices.

The design, she adds, was not meant to make the device easier to hide. “It was absolutely not made to look like a USB port. It was absolutely not made to look discreet, for kids to hide them in school,” Gould says. “It was made to not look like a cigarette, because when smokers stop they don't want to be reminded of cigarettes.”

Are e-cigs safe?

While e-cigarettes contain fewer toxic substances than traditional cigarettes, the CDC warns that vaping may still expose people to cancer-causing chemicals. (Different brands use different formulations, and the CDC's warning did not mention Juul specifically.)

It's not clear exactly how ecigarettes affect health because there's little long-term data on the topic, says Dr. Michael Ong, an associate professor of general internal medicine and health services at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles. “We just don't have a lot of information as to what the harms potentially are going to be,” he says. “There likely would be health risks associated with it, though they're not going to be the same as a traditional cigarette.”

Does Juuling help you quit smoking?

Doctors do know, however, that each Juul pod contains nicotine equivalent to a pack of cigarettes. That's troubling, because nicotine is “one of the most addicting substances that we know of,” Ong says. “Having access to that is certainly problematic,” Ong adds, because it may get kids hooked, which could potentially lead them to later take up cigarettes.

Internal Medicine even found that smokers trying to quit may actually have less success if they use e-cigarettes.

Juul's products come in flavors including mango, fruit medley and creme brûlée - and the chemicals used to flavor vaping liquid may also be dangerous, Ong adds. “Even if the manufacturer doesn't intend it to be something that's kid-friendly, it's kid-friendly,” he says. A 2016 study suggested that these flavoring agents may also cause popcorn lung, a respiratory condition first seen in people working in factories that make microwave popcorn.

It's not yet clear. Gould acknowledges that Juul doesn't have great end-user data since its products are mostly sold in retail stores, but she says the company is actively researching the effectiveness of its devices. Research about the efficacy of nicotine replacement therapy using tools such as e-cigarettes and nicotine gum is relatively inconclusive. A new study published in the Annals of

“The literature has suggested that when you have nicotine replacement therapies, they work best if [people are] being advised by a professional,” Ong says. “When we provide things over the counter, we don't see the benefits of cessation that we would have expected by making it widely available, and that's probably the reason why: because people aren't actually getting professional help.”

E-Waste In The 21st Century The vastly and constantly changing technology market leaves our communities with a surplus of electronic waste and the difficulties of e-waste disposal creates environmental concerns.

E-waste is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working, or obsolete, and have essentially reached the end of their useful life. Computers, televisions, cell phones, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic waste items. Many of these products have the ability to be reused or refurbished, if properly accumulated, sorted, and recycled. The Construction & Demolition Recycling Association established a disposal ban on covered devices and their components in early 2013. As a result, desktop computers, laptops, monitors, computer peripherals, and televisions may no longer be discarded with municipal waste in Pennsylvania. This means such devices and their components are unable to be accepted by landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities, often times ending up spending many years in basements, garages, or left on the side of the road.

Many electronic products contain components that render them as hazardous waste, depending on their condition and density. A good example would be CRTs (cathode ray tubes) from televisions and computer monitors. Recycling electronics is important as they contain precious metals that can be salvaged for reuse. However, only a small percentage of these metals are recovered due to improper disposal. Furthermore, older devices contain toxic substances, such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium. Proper processing is essential to ensure these materials are not released into the environment. To responsibly dispose of your e-waste, watch your Township website for events that are scheduled in your area. Many of our governmental representatives host events throughout the year in which residents can participate.

John J. Willaman Education Center - Jenkins Arboretum The John J. Willaman Center is like a giant tree house, extending high up into the tree canopy, while simultaneously looking down over the gardens. It is a most spectacular garden sculpture, the form of which reinforces its identity and function. Thus, in so many ways The Center is the lens through which we understand and see into the gardens. Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens is a garden for all seasons, and the architecture of this “building”, with its walls of windows facing the gardens and connecting with their natural splendor, allows visitors to fully enjoy each and every season from the inside, as well as out.

The new Education Center opened to the public in 2009, named after a prominent botanist from the University of Pennsylvania, John J. Willaman, who happened to be the maternal grandfather of one of our leading donors. The Arboretum was closed for one year for the construction and expansion of our previously existing small building. For geographical, as well as financial practicalities, the old building was “cocooned” within the new structure. As such, the design and construction of the Education Center comprised a project that is primarily characterized as a rehabilitation and addition to an existing building. The designer for the new building was Architect Cee Jay Frederick of Cee Jay Frederick Associates in West Chester. We asked Cee Jay to give us some insight into his initial design concepts for this project. He said, ”Since such projects (rehabilitation and addition to an existing building) can often be a case of the tail 'wagging the dog', we had to find a way for the existing to be a part of the whole but subsidiary to what invariably must be characterized as the larger and more functionally

important nature of the new Education and Visitor Center experience and program. Hence, the actual shape and organization of the overall building, both on the site and relative to the existing structure, is such that it makes its new identity the dominant focus of the arrival and experiential sequences, while still permitting all of the existing functions to continue effectively.” At Jenkins, visitors often ask us if the architect was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright. While Wright was probably not a direct influence, Cee Jay Frederick Associates is an interdisciplinary design firm, and this is one of the most important underlying factors to the design of our Education Center. Cee Jay Frederick started out his education and professional career as a Landscape Architect. Hence, the designs coming from his firm

always tend to be more objectively rational in nature versus totally conceptual, as the firm wants its buildings to not only be a part of the natural environment in which they exist, but to take most of the clues for their physical and aesthetic expression from the site on which they are to be built and its inherent environmental influences. Says Cee Jay, “To us, all buildings are really just walls in the greater landscape.”

boundaries between building and landscape, reinforces the concept of an assemblage of landscape walls, and allows the visitor to feel a part of the Arboretum grounds, even when situated within the building's confines. Further, the soaring rooflines and expressly high interior ceilings render the surrounding tree canopies as the ceiling of a much greater spatial experience.”

Education/Visitor Center is at worst, or best as the case may be, more of a garden structure than a building, as it appears to be more fragmented and open, rather than a solid imposition on the landscape. Of particular importance in this regard is the extensive use of glass, which blurs the

The building has the distinction of being LEED Gold Certified. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), is an internationally recognized green building certification system that measures how well a building performs in the areas of energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources, and overall sensitivity to environmental impacts. LEED certification is offered by the U.S. Green Building Council,

It is apparent that the design intent for the John J. Willaman Education Center building was predicated upon it taking its rightful place among the trees, fitting in amongst them, akin to the placement of a “tree house”. In fact, features like the building's tree-branch form steel columns and the filtered canopy lighting effects provided by the extensive functional deployment of louvers reveal its hope to become, itself, one of the trees in the forest. Cee Jay shed further light on his design intent by telling us, “The

principal designer in the firm of Cee Jay Frederick Associates, Design and Planning Consultants, located in West Chester. “Whether it be the sweeping eagle in his flight, or the open apple-blossom, the toiling work-horse, the blithe swan, the branching oak, the winding stream at its base, the drifting clouds, over all the coursing sun, form ever follows function, and this is the law. Where function does not change, form does not change. The granite rocks, the ever-

brooding hills, remain for ages; the lightning lives, comes into shape, and dies, in a twinkling. It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human and all things superhuman, of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that the life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function. This is the law.” - Louis Henry Sullivan, Architect “Father of Modernism” b. 1856 d. 1924

One of the environmentally fascinating features of the building is its geothermal heating and cooling system, which includes twelve 365 feet deep wells. Water is circulated through a loop configuration of plastic pipe, such that during the heating cycle, water circulates through an underground loop, extracting heat from the earth, which is at a constant temperature of 57 degrees Farenheit. The heat energy is transferred to the geothermal heat pump, which compresses the extracted heat at a higher temperature and ultimately delivers it to the building in the form of warm air through a normal duct system. For cooling, the process is simply reversed. Because the earth is much cooler than the air temperature on a hot day, the geothermal system removes heat from the building and deposits it into the ground. The fluid is cooled by the ground temperature and returned to the heat pump for cool air distribution in the building. The ERV's (Energy Recovery Ventilators) bring in fresh air, while recovering the energy (hot or cold temperature) from the pre-conditioned air inside the building. The Center at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens is open 365 days a year from 9 AM 4PM, so the public can come visit in every season and experience the vistas from our “tree house” looking over the acres of beautiful gardens and venture out to walk the paths for upclose enjoyment of our world class collection of rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as our perennial native wildflowers. After all, it's really all about the gardens!

Wharton Esherick’s Castle On A Hill Wharton Esherick's studio has long been an acclaimed architectural and artistic treasure. Universe Publishing included the Wharton Esherick Museum among the 1001 Buildings You Must See Before You Die.

Known best for his work in wood, he was an artist at heart. A painter turned printmaker turned sculptor and furniture maker, Esherick was always seeking, always creating.

But for a man reinventing his world, it's no surprise that those buildings would not satisfy him. He would have to start from scratch and construct a studio from the ground up. Over a 40 year period beginning in 1926, Wharton Esherick created the studio/residence that he often considered his greatest work. For the earliest section he

Before Wharton Esherick passed away in 1970, plans were already underway to preserve his home. His family and friends were in agreement, Esherick's “castle on a hill,” as he called it, would remain intact, with his furnishings and possessions in place. For they were not just any furnishings and it was not just any house, but a home built by a singular and brilliant mind, by a man who reinvented the world around him at every turn. Nearly everything inside, whether a

Later, he expanded his living space with an Expressionist wood addition, a free-form deck, and stuccoed masonry silo. Inside the Studio, his sculptures and furniture create a forest of graceful curving forms and radiating lines. A red oak staircase stands at the heart of the house, with cantilevered steps spiraling upward along the central post. Wharton Esherick's imagination feels endless. Cabinets are often equipped with lights that automatically turn on when opened. A trap door at the top of his staircase is operated through a pulley system raise the sculpture and the door closes.

Senior Lifestyles Bob's Story: Navigating the Health Care System

Navigating the health care system can be confusing and frustrating. Surrey's Aging Life Care Managers, formerly known as Geriatric Care Managers, are professionals who work with seniors and their families to help them choose the best options to be able to live independently. The story below shows how Surrey's care managers crafted a working plan for one individual and his family. Bob knew he needed assistance to remain in his home but was not sure who to call to access the right services. He called Surrey to ask for guidance. Bob, widowed for several years, shared that his income was limited and he was a veteran who had served during the Korean Conflict. Bob had stopped driving, so getting to medical appointments or even the grocery store was challenging. Arthritis made it

difficult to use stairs, and he had never really learned to cook or care for the home in which he and his wife had raised their two children. Although both his son and daughter called frequently, they lived too far to help him on a regular basis. His wife had always arranged their social life, and since her death he found himself spending most of his time alone. Bob met with Wendy, one of Surrey's care managers, who recommended contacting the Department of Aging in his county and the local veteran's affairs office. With Wendy's assistance, Bob learned that both agencies were able to provide support to help stretch his finances. Wendy and Bob completed a paratransit application, which allowed him to travel throughout the county with a shared ride. Cleaning service was arranged through Surrey's Home Care Services department. Bob loved his home and knew he wanted to stay there. Wendy recommended he consider what he would do if living alone became too difficult. After much conversation about Bob's lifestyle and financial considerations, Bob decided that inhome support would be his preference. He agreed to use the shared van ride to visit Surrey on a regular basis which provided a nutritious lunch each day and the opportunity to meet new friends. He found stretching during an exercise class lessened the pain of his arthritis.

Because Bob lived alone, Wendy recommended an emergency response system which allowed Bob to contact help with the push of a button. Wendy also recommended small changes in his home to increase his safety. Among other things, these included removing throw rugs and having an electrician add an outlet so that extension cords running across a hallway could be removed. A Surrey volunteer came to help with some other minor repairs. Bob's children wanted the peace of mind that comes with knowing he would receive assistance coordinating medical appointments and he would have a caring professional accompany him to those appointments. Bob agreed to this, and the care manager stepped in to this role. She was there to visit and advocate for Bob when he ended up in the hospital for a short stay; then helped him make the transition for a rehab stay and then transition back home, making sure each move went smoothly. Navigating the array of services available to seniors can be overwhelming. For more information contact Surrey's Home Care Services at 610-647-9840.
