Scavenger hunt at Ice Lake

Brodhead Watershed Association offers an adventure to young people wanting to get outside for a while: a scavenger hunt at Ice Lake in Monroe County.

Ice Lake is a little jewel of a preserve in Barrett Township made up of more than 70 acres —perfect for outdoor fun for families.

Armed with a checklist of natural features to find (see brodheadwatershed.org/gopoconos for a printable list), kids can “collect” the scavenger items by snapping a picture. The hunt will include a huge old oak tree, hay-scented fern, lichen, a baby hemlock tree, wintergreen, barberry, witch hazel, and a very notable boulder.

I've written and shared my own experience with Lyme disease before (and Spooky2 / biofeedback) and I found this really good video about COVID and the similarities w/ Lyme:

As many of you know, I am a strong advocate for Lyme Disease and Tick-BorneIllness awareness throughout the Commonwealth. I have sponsored multiplepieces of legislation addressing this health concern and have spearheaded the PA free tick testing program.

Original Article:

The announcement earlier this month that the last remaining area Kmart store (in Walnutport) will be closing came as no surprise to the retail community.

The company has been on a steep downward trajectory for decades, and its acquisition of Sears Inc. and two major recessions, including the one triggered by COVID-19, have pretty much sealed its fate.

What many of our readers may not know is that Kmart’s origins go back to the company’s patriarch, Sebastian Sperling Kresge (S.S. Kresge), who spent most of his formative years in the West End of Monroe County.

I usually don't post news alerts for other municipalities but this relates to Barrett because a liquor license is transferring out of the immediate area.  This is more of an FYI -
