‘How do I get a grant for that?’

Friday, June 7, 2019 by The Press in Opinion

One of the best parts of being an administrator for the Northampton County Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) is being able to make positive change and that positive change is often made through grants. Grants are money that governments give to organizations to do something specific to benefit the community: install new picnic tables at a public park, preserve farmland, make a sidewalk handicapped accessible, etc.

Cards anyone?

If you are in need of a deck of cards, contact Washington state Sen. Maureen Walsh. She has received hundreds of decks of cards in response to comments she made about nurses April 16.

While debating a bill proposing uninterrupted meal and rest breaks for nurses, as well as further protections against mandatory overtime, Walsh said nurses in Critical Access Hospitals with relatively few patients “probably do get breaks” and “probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day.”

This from a woman whose mother was a registered nurse.
