Tips for Keeping Your Busy Family Organized

When it comes to busy families, things have a habit of becoming scattered quickly. Here are five ways to keep everything and everyone organized, all the time. 1. Centralize Information. Hang an erasable calendar or family to-do list in a high-traffic area of the home where everyone can see it, so that everyone can add appointments, practices, vacations, school plays and other events. Be sure to hang it at a height appropriate for all members of the family, big and small. 2. Planned Meal Prep. Pick one day a week to plan meals and snacks for the days ahead....

Take the races for Delaware County Council and row offices, for example.

On any given day, many, if not most, of the GOP contenders are seriously engaged in retail politics; pressing the flesh, meeting voter-constituents and listening to the people’s concerns. Go to any of the 49 municipalities in the county and you will find people who know these candidates both by name and reputation because they always show up and contribute to the cause or community, even when they aren’t running for office. They are engaged in true community service, whether fighting the drug scourge, protecting the interests of the elderly, or simply rooting for young athletes and encouraging good citizenship.

For Elizabeth Newman, a 57-year old Chicago native, chronic pain is a way of life and a challenge she shares with more than 100 million Americans.
