Attention Dairy Farmers

If you were asked the following questions, how accurately could you answer them? What does it cost your dairy farm to produce 100 pounds of milk? When you see the current Class III price for milk, what is your prediction for your mailbox (take home) milk price? What is the difference between a milk futures contract, a put option, and a call? Is crop insurance for me?

An upcoming two-day Penn State Cooperative Extension program will help dairy farmers answer these and other questions related to the uncertainty regarding planted crops and milk prices.

The dates, location, and times are: March 30 and April 6 – Edgewood Restaurant, Troy, PA from 10:00-2:30 p.m. each day ; March 31 and April 7 – Endless Mountains Health Building (EMHS), 78 Grow Ave., next to Tom Kerr Chevy, Montrose, PA from 10:00-2:30 p.m. each day.

Space is limited to the first 20 dairy farmer participants who register. Please register by calling the Bradford County Extension Office at (570) 265-2896 or the Tioga County Cooperative Extension Office at (570) 724-9120 by Wednesday, March 24.

There is no cost for the two-day program. Lunch will be provided each day.

Drug, Alcohol Abuse Among The Elderly

If an older person were ill or needed help, most people would do everything they could to help. But when that same older person shows signs of having a problem with alcohol or prescription drugs, it’s hard for most people to know what to do or say.

During April, Alcohol Awareness month, the B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging PrimeTime Health program will sponsor a program called Responsibility of Friendship: How to talk to an older person who has a problem with alcohol or medications. This program will be held in the Susquehanna County Senior Community Centers, and will be presented by staff of TreHab’s Drug and Alcohol Education unit.

Alcoholism and the misuse of prescription drugs are becoming a life-threatening epidemic in older people. It is estimated that 70% of all hospitalized older persons have alcohol-related problems. Among older people there is reason for concern about mixing alcohol and drugs. Combining prescriptions with alcohol can be deadly at any age, and especially so among the older age groups.

This program will be held at the following Senior Community Centers: Susquehanna/Lanesboro – April 5, 12:30 p.m.; Lawton – April 19, 11:30 p.m.; Montrose – April 20, 1:30 p.m.; Lenoxville – April 22,10:30 a.m.

For more information contact the Area Agency on Aging at 1-800-982-4346. Senior Community Centers in Susquehanna County are operated by Barnes-Kasson Senior Services through a contract with the Area Agency on Aging.

Library Hobby Day/Auction Night Set

Mark Saturday, April 24 on your calendar for an exciting annual event: an afternoon of hobbies at the Montrose Library, from 3 p.m. -5 p.m., followed by a reception and auction at the Fire Hall.

This is the thirteenth year that the Susquehanna County Historical Society & Free Library Association has invited a dozen hobbyists and crafters to show their work and answer questions. Presenters for Hobby Day, a free program that's fun for all ages, are still being lined up – there will be a good mix of old and new, appealing to all!

It's the sixth year for the Auction, which benefits the Association, and it's an especially important year because of the severely reduced state funding to libraries. Organizers are collecting a wonderful variety of special items. More donations for the Auction are needed, and businesses are invited to advertise in the program (an attractive booklet).

Tickets will be available at the door of the Montrose Fire Hall. The doors open at 5 and the festivities start at 5:30 with a buffet reception. The Auction begins at 6 p.m. Entertaining auctioneer Dave Coddington makes this a delightful, laughter-filled event. For more information on Hobby Day or Auction Night, call (570) 278-1881.
