Make The Decision For A Healthier New Year

Allentown - January 1 is a time when many smokers make a New Year Resolution to quit tobacco use for a healthier and happier life. This year make the resolution easier and successful with help from a professional tobacco treatment program and counselor.

Over 75% of tobacco users have made one or more quit attempts only to return to tobacco use within a short period of time because they tried to quit on their own. Quitters are twice as successful when they use a counseling program with pharmaceuticals to reduce withdrawal cravings rather than the old “cold turkey.”

To contact a local free and FDA approved method treatment program, visit and click on “Want to Quit Smoking” or call 1-866-974-QUIT. Make the decision now for a healthier New Year!

PA Farm Show Photo Contest

Harrisburg - Pennsylvania Farm Show visitors are invited to put their photographic skills to the test by entering their best pictures in the 2010 photo contest, said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding.

“The Farm Show has a different significance for everyone, whether an exhibitor or fans of the displays and exhibits or the food court,” said Redding. “The photo contest is the perfect way to capture those special moments that Pennsylvania’s diverse agricultural industry offers.”

Anyone visiting the show is eligible to enter, and the top three entries will be featured in the 2011 Souvenir Book. The first place winner will receive $100 and a VIP parking space at the 2011 show. The second place winner will receive a $75 cash prize and the third place winner will take home $50.

Contest guidelines are as follows: the photograph must be taken at the 2010 Farm Show; the photograph must be in color; the photograph must be 4 x 6 inches in size; if a digital camera is used, the resolution must be at least 300 dpi; entries are limited to one per person and must be submitted by March 31, 2010; contact information (name, address, phone number, email address) and caption must be included with entry; all photo entries become the property of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture; the judging will be done by the Department of Agriculture; employees of the Department of Agriculture are not eligible; and the contest is open only to non-professional entries.

Last year’s winner was Jodie Dietrich of Newville, Cumberland County. Second place honors went to Larry Litman of Washington, Washington County; Rebekah Fair of Coudersport, Potter County, was the third place winner.

Digital photos and entry form information must be mailed to by March 31, 2010. Print photos should be mailed with entry form to April Orwig at the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, 2301 N. Cameron St., Harrisburg, PA 17110.

The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the largest indoor agricultural event in the nation, featuring nearly 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 270 commercial exhibitors. The eight-day show is January 9-16, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg. For more information, visit

Clifford Address Signs Arrive

In early December, the Susquehanna 911 Center in conjunction with the US Post Office and Clifford Township Supervisors released the new addresses for Clifford Township. This release is truly a milestone for the emergency services that protect your life and property. Although there will be additional work on the residents behalf changing your address with the appropriate agencies, the new 911 addressing throughout the County will greatly enhance the ability for emergency services to find your home or location of your emergency.

One vital step for residents to complete is properly signing your residence so Clifford Fire, Rescue and Ambulance can quickly locate your home. It is very important to have uniformity to the signage within the Township and County. Susquehanna County has approached this by encouraging the use of a blue reflective sign 6” x 18” with white reflective letters. The sign is to be located at the end of your driveway or if your house is within 50’ of the roadway, attached appropriately to the street side of the residence. These signs will be available for purchase at the Clifford Fire station. The signs will be available for sale on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. beginning January 4. If this is not possible due to your schedule, please call the fire station at 570-222-3741.

The signage is the final step in this project and one of the most important to make it successful.
