As an AARP volunteer and member, I have had the privilege of being educated on how my insurance can help me prevent illness and avoid being sick.

Many people associate health care with something they rely on when they become sick and need to go to the doctor, but health care can also be used when you're healthy to stop sickness from happening.

<![CDATA[Letter to the Editor: Support of the Willow Street Project]]> Dear Editor,

I was encouraged to write this letter in support of the Willow Street development project after reading Nancy Unger's letter that appeared in the Patriot two weeks ago.

Nancy's argument makes perfect sense to me and to other senior citizens of the borough and surrounding area who must consider "down-sizing" in the near future.

<![CDATA[Letter to The Editor: Bicentennial celebration should include an evaluation of well being of our 'Most Agreeable Town']]> Dear Editor,

As we prepare for the Borough of Kutztown's bicentennial celebration, we all look forward to celebrating the hard work and commitment of the many men and women who built our town and who nurtured the growth of a self-sufficient family-centered rural community.

But, part of our celebration should include an evaluation of how well we are caring for what we have been given.

<![CDATA[Letter to the Editor: Silk Mill Project - Another Point Of View]]> Dear Editor,

I am very much in favor of the Silk Project that is being proposed for Willow Street in Kutztown.

First let me say that I am NOT related to, married to, or in any other way associated with the group that has formulated this Project. I have researched the group, though, and studied the facilities that they have already had built - not only here in Kutztown, but in other places.
