CRESCO — It’s one of the first places you see while driving into Cresco in Monroe County — The Theo B. Price General Store.
The place has everything from hardware supplies to knick-knacks to collectibles.
The business has been run by the same family for more than 109 years, but now, owner Mickey Miller is saying goodbye to his second home.
“Oh, some days I feel real good but today I am not in the best of mood because it’s kind of nostalgic because we are moving out all these things that are around here and things my wife had collected and she is no longer with us so it’s been hard,” said Warren “Mickey” Miller, Theo B. Price owner.
The flaw in Rosemary Brown's thinking is creating more laws, more regulations, will help things. Bicycles are already federally required to be sold with reflectors. Adding an overlapping law will not keep cyclists safe. It would only ensure that the politicians and attorneys remain in business.
Recently, Donald made a splash by addressing this issue head-on:
Trump wants to scrap two regulations for each new one adopted
Questions - To Rosemary Brown:
Where do we draw the line with bicycle safety?
Should we force cyclists to obtain a permit or license?
Should we require them to have insurance?
Annual bicycle safety inspections?
Letter to the Editor:
The High Acres Park Committee would like to extend our thanks and acknowledgement to all those that participated in or supported the Memorial Day Ceremony 2017 held at the High Acres Park Memorial Garden and lead by Rollin J. Ronemus, Commander of American Legion Evans-Blitz Post #922.
Township supervisors provided posters and programs designed by Pam Gardsy. The Village View was so generous with a front page announcement of the event in their May issue. The various online and social media sites in Barrett that posted an announcement played an important part as did the Pocono Record.
The wreath and stand were donated by The Flower Shop at Village Crafts, Cresco, PA. Our volunteer fire company provided folding chairs. Girl Scouts greeted guests and handed out programs while Boy Scouts helped with setting up chairs.
At the Supervisor's Meeting on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, it was announced that the appeal was decided in favor of the supervisors. Stay tuned for further updates.
At the Supervisor's Meeting on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, it was announced that the supervisors have appealed the zoning board's decision. Stay tuned for further updates.

On May 19th Pam Gardsy led a Barrett Township Marketing Meeting at which definite plans and target dates were established for 4 beautification planting sites to be started shortly after Memorial Day. The first planting site will be located below the Barrett Township welcome sign (on the southern approach via Route 390) and three other locations are to be determined. About ten residents were in attendance including two candidates for Supervisor — Grant Hilfiger and Patti O’Keefe, and the spirit of all who attended was that of enthusiastic support.

A green economy is not an end in itself. Rather, […] it is a means towards a shared and lasting prosperity. But what exactly does prosperity mean? We propose a definition of prosperity in terms of the capabilities that people have to flourish on a finite planet. It is clear that a part of our prosperity depends on material goods and services. Living well clearly means achieving basic levels of material security. But prosperity also has important social and psychological components. Our ability to participate in the life of society is vital. Meaningful employment, satisfying leisure, and a healthy environment also matter. […] Thriving communities are the basis of shared prosperity. — Tim Jackson and Peter A. Victor (2013: 6)
In 2009, Professor Tim Jackson catalysed a step-change in the conversation about the ‘growth imperative’ that is structurally built into our economic system. In a report for the UK Sustainable Development Commission, Jackson dared to name the elephant in the room by asking whether “prosperity without growth” was a possibility, stating clearly why ‘business as usual’ was no longer an option (Jackson, 2009a).
