Bingo activity at Briar Hill’s Assisted Living facility….

On Saturday January 10, 2015 the North Baltimore Gleaner Arbor hosted a “4th of July in January” bingo activity at Briar Hill’s Assisted Living facility.

Prior to the residents arriving, the dining hall was decorated for the 4th of July.

As the residents arrived Gleaner members placed red, white and blue beaded necklaces around their neck.  The residents thought it was a nice touch.

Teddy bears with patriotic bows around their necks were the most popular bingo prizes.  Some of the residents expressed their desire to share them with a family member.

House Passes Pro-Jobs, Pro-Growth Bills During First Week of 114th Congress

H.R. 24, the Hire More Heroes Act, which passed with unanimous support, incentivizes small businesses to hire more of our nation’s veterans…….

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last week marked the beginning of the 114th Congress, and Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in passing three pieces of legislation that will proactively address issues with Obamacare and finally approve the Keystone XL Pipeline.

H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act, will help increase hours and wages by eliminating the 30-hour definition of full time employee in the President’s health care law and restoring the 40-hour work week.

“Repealing the 30-hour penalty under Obamacare – a rule that especially hurts low income workers and women – will ensure that hardworking Americans don’t see their paychecks cut because of the President’s poorly thought out law,” said Latta. “When many are still struggling to make ends meet, this legislation puts Americans’ priorities first and ensures workers can take full advantage of opportunities to provide for their families. This bipartisan bill underscores the House’s commitment to the people who elected them to serve, and I encourage the President to rethink his opposition to this legislation and join us in creating real solutions for the American people.”

In addition, H.R. 24, the Hire More Heroes Act, which passed with unanimous support, incentivizes small businesses to hire more of our nation’s veterans by exempting veterans who already receive health insurance through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or TRICARE from being counted toward the 50-employee mandate under Obamacare.

“An integral part of veterans’ assimilation to civilian life is their ability to find jobs and provide for their families,” said Latta. “The Hire More Heroes Act is a commonsense, bipartisan solution that encourages small businesses to hire more of our nation’s heroes by exempting veterans from the employer mandate if they already receive health insurance through the VA or TRICARE. I am proud to join my colleagues in the House in unanimous support of this legislation that both supports our veterans and promotes small businesses’ ability to grow and prosper.”

Finally, H.R. 3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, approves construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would create more than 40,000 good paying jobs and help make the United States more North American energy independent by moving 830,000 barrels of oil per day. This is the tenth time the House has approved legislation to approve the pipeline, and the President has threatened to veto the bill due to ongoing litigation in Nebraska. However, the Nebraska Supreme Court removed this major legal obstacle today with its ruling.

“We have waited more than six years for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline to be approved – valuable time that could have gone to creating the tens of thousands of jobs and energy security and independence this project will bring,” said Latta. “The President is out of excuses. Delaying this project any further is not an option. It is time for the President to stop playing politics with America’s energy future and start putting our interests first by approving the Keystone XL Pipeline.”

Chowline: Trim costs while buying more produce

According to a 2014 Economic Research Service report, American consumers throw away 90 billion pounds of food per year, including 9.5 billion pounds of fresh fruit and 12.8 billion pounds of fresh vegetables.

Two of my New Year’s resolutions are to eat more fruits and vegetables and to spend less at the grocery store. Other than watching for sales on produce, what are some ideas to help? 

Those are two great resolutions. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend that adults get two to three cups of vegetables and 1.5 to two cups of fruit a day. Keep in mind that it’s important to get a wide variety. Apples and green beans are fine, but you’ll want to spread your wings a bit and eat other types of produce to get the benefits you’re looking for from fruits and vegetables.

And you don’t have to assume that eating more healthfully will be more expensive. A 2012 study by the Economic Research Service, “Are Healthy Foods Really More Expensive?” found that healthy foods, including fruits and vegetables, are often less expensive per serving than foods that are higher in saturated fat, added sugar or sodium or that contribute little to meeting the dietary recommendations. So, if you’re smart about buying fruits and vegetables and at the same time buy fewer less-healthy foods, your grocery bill could easily go down.

Here are some ideas to help you achieve your goals:

  • For fresh fruits and vegetables, become familiar with what’s in season. You’re more likely to find good prices on in-season produce, but you first need to know what to look for. For an extensive list, visit the “Fruits and Veggies: More Matters” website at fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org and click on “What’s in season?”
  • Don’t forget the canned and frozen sections of the grocery store. As long as you have the pantry and freezer space, here’s where sales can really help trim costs. Store brands are normally the most economical, but sometimes price reductions on name brands will surprise you, especially if you have a coupon. For health, look for low-sodium canned goods and frozen produce without added sugar or sauces.
  • If you have options on where to shop, check them out. Many people head to the nearest grocery store out of convenience, but better deals could be just down the road. Just be cautious about impulse purchases: Shopping at additional stores provides more opportunities to spend money you didn’t plan on. And don’t be tempted to drive so far that the cost of gas undermines your grocery savings.
  • Be sure to eat what you have on hand before it goes bad. According to a 2014 Economic Research Service report, American consumers throw away 90 billion pounds of food per year, including 9.5 billion pounds of fresh fruit and 12.8 billion pounds of fresh vegetables. That’s not only wasted food, but money down the drain. To reduce waste, plan meals and snacks, and purchase only what your family can eat while it’s fresh. And keep fresh produce as visible as possible — in a bowl on the kitchen counter (if it doesn’t have to be kept cool) or at the front of the refrigerator.
