Other activities included pony rides, a petting zoo, clown shows, chainsaw sculpting, blacksmithing, basket weaving, rope making and old-fashioned thread spinning. Co-chairs of the festival, which took many months of pre-planning, were Ashley Clark and Jessie Merckle, who was in charge of the fun filled Pie-Eating Contest. Many community volunteers participated, handling parking and traffic, cooking and serving food as well as running the displays to assure that attendees had the best time possible, and the public consensus was that the 2021 Hickory Apple Festival was a huge success!

Monessen To Make Existing Owners Foot the Bill For Vacant Properties The City of Monessen has adopted a new set of Ordinances that puts procedures in place for the City to declare a vacant property a nuisance. In the new set of Ordinances, the city will be able to declare a property a nuisance, due to safety issues, pertaining to property maintenance. The City has also opted into the state's law, Act 90 of 2010, which allows for asset forfeiture. In this new Ordinance, after exhausting all other avenues, the City of Monessen will be able to lien property (including homes and vehicles) and garnish wages of property owners who are leaving vacant properties to deteriorate. Mayor Matt Shorraw says that if the City has to repair or demolish a structure owned by someone who refuses to comply, the City now has the full legal jurisdiction to ensure that the property owner covers the financial cost of the demolitions. “There are people in Monessen who are living in nice houses but seem to intentionally let other properties they own sit and rot. The City has to foot the bill. This will no longer be the case," said Mayor Shorraw. This is one of many new Ordinances the City has adopted and plans to enforce pertaining to blight - as the City cracks down on property owners who refuse to clean their properties. Additionally, in the City's strategy for addressing blight, Monessen has seen an increase of interest in people acquiring vacant properties either through their tax forgiveness program or through other means. If you are interested in acquiring a vacant house, or if you own a vacant house in Monessen that you are interested in finding a new owner for, you may contact City Hall.

Heritage Discovery Center in Elizabeth is a Historical Resource By Lois Thomson Walking through the door of the Constitution & Godly Heritage Discovery Center in Elizabeth is like stepping back into American history a few hundred years. But it's a history you may not even know. Rick Saccone and his wife, Yong, turned an old storage building on their property into a museum-type setting that features items Saccone has been collecting for 30 years. A former state representative (2010 – 2018), Saccone said he used to display his collection in his office in Harrisburg, and also at Saint Vincent College where he taught for 15 years. "When I retired from that, I thought, 'What am I going to do with all of this?'" The answer was to design a place that focuses on the U.S. Constitution and America's founders and godly heritage. Upon entering, you will see a large copy of the Constitution on the far wall, serving as a centerpiece for the rest of the room. The exhibit begins with the story of William Penn and goes through President Abraham Lincoln. Exhibits feature portraits and displays on men such as George Washington, John Jay, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson. "They all carry the message of how America was founded on godly principles," Saccone said. "John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and he would hold an altar call after sentencing a criminal. Washington knew everything he did would be a precedent, so when taking office he swore on the Bible, 'So help me God.' He also consecrated the country at St. Paul's Chapel in New York. Jefferson called this country's liberties a gift from God." Other displays

The Constitution & Godly Heritage Discovery Center features displays and the history of America's founders. Rick Saccone and his wife, Yong, established the Heritage Center earlier this year.

include a model of the USS Constitution, otherwise known as "Old Ironsides," and dioramas of battles from the Revolutionary War. Saccone said, "We bring tours through, by appointment only, because we're not always here, and you need somebody to explain it – it's better if you have a guide. We have groups every week – patriotic groups, civic groups, churches, scouts, a book club from Latrobe that was studying Common Sense by Thomas Paine. They're really diverse." He added that even some teachers who bring classes are not aware of this history. "There are so many great founders who were godly men and we need to hear their story. When kids come and hear the great stories of our founders, they're in awe. They're thirsty for our history, they have never heard this. "This is history, and we need to start telling the story. It's a free resource, I don't charge anything. It's Yong's and my way of giving back to the community for all the blessings we've received over the years." For tour appointments, call 412751-7394.

Ambulance and Chair EMS Seeks to Provide 'Best Possible Care'

CAREGIVING Q: Why should I consider becoming a professional caregiver? A: Caregiving in home care as a career is

By Lois Thomson Giving the best possible care to patients and the community is at the heart of Ambulance and Chair EMS. One way of carrying out this mission is by replacing the cardiac monitors for the ambulances. Larry Pollock, executive director, said the current monitors are about 15 years old, but the new ones "are cutting-edge, they have much more capability and efficiency for the crews. These are pretty advanced and allow us to do various things." He explained they serve as a defibrillator, so if a patient's heart stops, the crews are able to shock it back into a correct heartbeat. "They also give CPR feedback in real time, so we know if we have to go faster or deeper to try to help with patient outcomes." The second part of their latest commitment to quality care was the purchase of 26 AEDS (automated external defibrillators) and the donation of one to each fire department in its coverage area. Pollock said this was a large investment, as they currently serve 33 municipalities in Washington County out of three stations, in Washington, Bentleyville, and Smith Township near Burgettstown. "We really want to put a patient-centered approach to this system of care integrated between the fire departments and the ambulance, so we can provide our residents the best possible care." He pointed out there are particular advantages to these devices during a pandemic. "We find that people are

sicker, and a lot of folks don't want to go to the hospital as early into an illness as they wanted to before, and these devices can help. They're more efficient because they're lighter, and our crews can take them to bedside, which promotes better patient care." Pollock continued by saying, "Obviously, when somebody is not breathing or doesn't have a pulse, everything has to click in a certain way to manage that patient. That takes a cooperative effort between the fire department, our quick response services, and also the local ambulance service that's staffed with EMTs and paramedics." For work like this, Ambulance and Chair EMS recently received the American Heart Association's Mission: Lifeline® EMS SILVER PLUS Achievement Award for setting up specific quality improvement measures to treat patients who suffer severe heart attacks. It acknowledged how EMTs and paramedics play a vital role in the care for those who have heart attacks, saying they are often the first medical point of contact, and that they can save precious treatment time by triggering the emergency response system that alerts hospitals to an incoming patient. Those who apply for the award must designate how their organization has made a commitment to improving quality care for patients. Pollock cited Gina Sicchitano, who handles quality assurance, as helping Ambulance and Chair EMS to receive the award.

often overlooked because a person may think they either don’t have the skills necessary to be a capable caregiver or there is no viable career path in caregiving. Nothing could be further from the truth! There are so many benefits a caregiving career can offer, here are some of the most Kimberly L. attractive: • Flexible work schedules, day, evenings, Pirilla-Scalise, overnights and weekends. Fulltime and PartExecutive Director time hours are always options as well. Superior Home Care • Besides the normal flexibility offered in home care, there is also day-to-day flexibility that most other jobs can’t offer. Snow day for your kids? Not a problem to shift your work day a little later. In home care, we have room to shift schedules when life demands it. • Competitive wages based on skill and experience. Wage scales vary by employer but at Superior, our wage scale runs from $10/hour for a person with no experience all the way up to $15/hour for a highly experienced person. • Besides a competitive wage, most home care employers do offer benefits. At Superior, our staff enjoy a full list of benefits: paid time off, paid training, health insurance, 401k and biweekly and quarterly performance bonuses, just to name of few. • Ability to work in the community where you live. Home care provides service to people living right in your community, you could be matched with a client who lives in your own community, where you are comfortable and familiar. Home care is perfect for stay at home mom’s with school age children as well as retired persons just looking for a rewarding part-time job. • No previous skill or experience needed! We can train you in all aspects of being a professional caregiver and our unique 90-day onboarding experience will assure you assimilate successfully in your new career. • Career growth potential is great with caregiving. We have our own internal career ladder to promote skill enhancement and growth on our team but opportunities beyond that abound. Caregiving is a springboard for careers in social work, nursing, physical and occupational therapy and even business ownership. Last but not the least is the greatest reason of all you should consider becoming a professional caregiver: the chance to do some of the most meaningful work imaginable on a team with other passionate caregivers. Caregivers intimately touch the lives of those they care for each day. Being able to bring hope, comfort and peace of mind to a person just by showing up and being yourself can be life changing.

PAIN MANAGEMENT Q: What are new treatments

for back pain? A: New, minimally-invasive treatments for lumbar spinal stenosis may be the answer. Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is the most common reason for patients older than 65 to have spine surgery. Symptomatic LSS can cause low back pain and/or leg pain when walking or standing that is improved with sitting or bending forward. Conservative treatments for LSS have tradiBy Anthony Cuneo, tionally included physical therapy, pain medMD, PhD ications, and injections. While surgery can be Physical Medicine effective for patients that do not improve with Specialist conservative treatments, these operations are The Orthopedic Group invasive and can have procedural and anesthesia complications. There are two new and exciting treatments available to patients with LSS that helps to bridge the gap between conservative treatments and invasive spine surgery. Both treatments address the root cause of spinal stenosis and are outpatient procedures performed at Spartan Health Surgicenter. They take about 45 minutes to perform and do not require general anesthesia. MILD (minimally invasive lumbar decompression) procedures remove excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. MILD is as safe as an injection. Restrictions following MILD are minimal, with return to normal activity within a few days. Patients are typically able to walk for 16 times and stand for seven times longer following the procedure. Vertiflex is a spine spacer that can treat up to moderate stenosis. Following the procedure, 80% of patients have improved leg pain and 65% have improved back pain. There are six weeks of restrictions following Vertiflex placement, with potential complications including fracture where the spacer is placed and spacer migration. If you are interested in learning more, please call 724-379-5802 to schedule an appointment at The Orthopedic Group. Anthony Cuneo MD, PhD is a physical medicine specialist in pain management with The Orthopedic Group providing these procedures at Spartan Health Surgicenter.

Local People News Finleyville Native Authors Children’s Book Whimsical stories shared between her and her youngest daughter, helped spark the idea for Finleyville native, Kristen (Haniford) Marusich to write her first children’s book, Penelope’s Purple Pajamas. “It’s a fun book about a little girl who refuses to go to sleep without her favorite pajamas,” said Marusich. “She tries to stay awake all night but succumbs to a colorful dream with a surprise ending.” Marusich, a 1985 graduate of Ringgold High School said the book was inspired by stories that she and her youngest daughter, Michaela would make up while cleaning her room when she was little. “I’ve had the idea of writing this book for years, and with the pandemic I finally had time to pursue it.” The manuscript was submitted to Newman Springs Publishers in New Jersey and they informed her that they wanted to

publish the book, and assigned an illustrator to create the visuals and design used throughout the book. The complete process once the manuscript was accepted to finalize the book and release it to the public was about one year. Authoring a children’s book was a natural step for Marusich, who has worked in early childhood education for nearly 18 years and has been exposed to a variety of children’s picture books, poems and literature over the course of her career. Kristen now lives in Virginia with her husband Andrew, three children, and one grandchild. Penelope’s Purple Pajamas is a wonderful gift for any new parents, or young children. It is available in hardcover and paperback on Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and formats such as Kindle, Nook and iBooks.

The new children’s book Penelope’s Purple Pajamas is available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com.

Exceptional emergency care saved Debbie’s life It was a morning like any other. Until Debbie Kubina developed a headache like no other. “It was the worst I”ve ever had,” she said. She took Tylenol, had a bite to eat, then called her daughter and granddaughter. As soon as she got off the phone, she felt her neck stiffen. “By that time, I couldn’t move my head. I had to hold it with both hands.” She called her husband to come home, then called her daughter, who called 911. In the ambulance on the way to Jefferson Hospital, the EMT began working to lower Debbie’s blood pressure, which was alarmingly high. When the ambulance pulled up at the emergency department doors, a full triage team and setup was waiting. “It was all hands on deck getting my blood pressure under control, ensuring medicine flowed constantly through the IV into my veins.” She was immediately given a CT scan and MRI which revealed a brain bleed, also known as a brain hemorrhage, which is a type of stroke. “I was petrified,” Debbie said. “But they reassured me that the position of the bleed, next to my brain versus on it, was the best that it could be.”

“I’m very lucky, if it wasn’t for the nurses and doctors at both Jefferson and Allegheny General, I don’t think I’d be here today.” — Debbie Kubrina

Even so, it was determined that she needed the level of resources and treatments only a Level 1 trauma center can provide. Because time was of the essence, she was put aboard a Life Flight helicopter and rushed to Allegheny General Hospital. “I was there for seven days,” she said. “Two days in the ICU, then 5 days in a step-down unit. The doctors and nurses took great care of me. They were wonderful the whole way through. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.” Debbie’s back to life as usual, spending as much time as possible with her daughter and granddaughter, and her blood pressure remains under control with medicine. Best of all, her four-month follow-up CT scan came back perfectly normal. To celebrate, she stopped by the Jefferson emergency room with a couple dozen donuts. “I don’t know if the people on staff then were the ones that took care of me, but I had to say thank you,” Debbie said. “I’m very lucky, if it wasn’t for the nurses and doctors at both Jefferson and Allegheny General, I don’t think I’d be here today.”

AHN Jefferson earns 2021 Lantern Award and Magnet Designation The emergency department at AHN Jefferson Hospital received an Emergency Nurses Association’s (ENA) 2021 Lantern Award. This year's recipients were recognized for many accomplishments, including efforts to improve patient mortality and clinical outcomes, and developing efficiencies for the triage process. We’re also proud to be the second AHN hospital to earn Magnet designation, specifically for emergency room care. The Magnet Recognition Program, developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), recognizes quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in nursing practice. It’s considered nationally to be the “gold standard” of excellence. We’re the second among AHN hospitals to receive this designation, and the first in the South HIlls. None of this would be possible without our talented providers and support staff who provide the highest level of care every day — even during these unprecedented times.

Ensuring excellence amid chaos Emergency departments are fast-paced, often-stressful and usually chaotic environments. It takes a unique skill set and temperament to thrive as an emergency nurse (or triage nurse, as they’re often called.) It takes someone like Dean Huwes, a self-admitted adrenaline junkie who first realized his passion for emergency medicine when he was a paramedic in Erie. “I’ve always been drawn to public service,” he said. He served in the army right out of high school, then took an EMS course and fell in love with being an EMT. Soon after that, he went to nursing school to become an LPN, then an RN, and now he’s working in our Emergency Department, doing what he does best: helping people when they need it most. “It’s exciting. It’s where I feel I can really make a difference. We see people who are having the worst day of their lives and we help turn it around with the person-to-person contact, education, and assurance we’re able to provide. And not just for the patient — the whole family.” he said. “It never feels like a job to me. I love solving problems, finding solutions, getting people back on their feet and back to their lives.”

Remember: Work your landscape and your landscape will work for you.” Two backyarding personality types in particular—the Expert Landscaper and the Work from Home Pro—can really shine this fall. Here’s why:

Work From Home Pro As a work from home professional, you have been living for fall when the temperatures are perfect for taking your office outside. All you need is a strong Wi-Fi connection, your nicest leisure wear and a jacket for chilly morning meetings and you’re ready for work in your backyard. Nature is your video call backdrop and you have set up your outdoor office for success by using shrubs and patio planters to distinguish your outdoor office space from other backyard activity zones. What do these personality types know to do this fall? No matter your backyarding personality type, you can have a fabulous family yard this fall and beyond with these simple steps: Remove leaves. Mulching leaves rather than raking and bagging them is good for your lawn and the environment. As shredded leaves decompose they feed your lawn, naturally. Mow at the right height. Cut grass until the first hard frost. Find the just-right length for your lawn’s species (typically between 2-3 inches) to keep your grass healthy when (Continued on following page.)

it turns cold. Overseed grass and don’t forget to aerate the lawn in fall to prevent soil from becoming compacted and covered with thatch—a thick layer of roots, stems and debris that blocks water, oxygen and nutrients from reaching the soil. Water wisely. If you’re not getting at least an inch of water each week, keep watering throughout the fall. Install watering solutions, such as smart controllers on irrigation systems, to conserve water. Plant bulbs and flowering shrubs that will give blooms in spring and summer to feed pollinators, such as birds, bees and butterflies, as well as provide beauty for those natural, video conference backdrops. Plant a tree for shade or cover. It may take a few years to grow to shade-producing height, but it’s an investment in your outdoor space.

READER ADVISORY: Reader Advisory: the National Trade Association we belong to has purchased the following classifieds. Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
