DECORATING DECODED – THE PERFECT PORCH
The front porch is iconic to American culture. It can be on a Victorian mansion, a Texas ranch or a country cottage. It can make or break your home’s curb appeal.
Whether you have multiple porches or a small portico, you can create an inviting entry using 3 basic decorating principles that anyone can do. Think of your porch as an extension of your living space and decorate it as you would any other room inside your home. You need to define its purpose, pick a theme and then a focal point.
As always, defining the purpose of a space is critical to beginning any design. For a porch, it can be as simple as being the entry to the house if you have a small portico, or to host al fresco dinner parties if the space allows.
Once you have determined how you will use your porch, you need to choose a theme with which to decorate it. This can be done by choosing a color scheme and/or a particular style.
PROTECTING YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH
Symptoms are the body’s natural response to help remove the causes of disease, and lessen their damage. Symptoms are often mistaken for the illness itself. For example, when we get food poisoning, diarrhea is a beneficial response to eliminate the offending microbes. Attempting to stop the diarrhea with medication is potentially harmful, as it may allow dangerous bacteria to proliferate and gain entry into the bloodstream. In acute illnesses, such as colds and flu, the symptom such as fever, mucous production, and cough are the body’s defenses to get rid of the virus. A fever promotes interferon production in the brain, which then further activates white blood cells to destroy the virus. Coughing aids in expelling mucous, carrying away dead cells and preventing them from settling within the lungs.
DUNHAM’S CORNER – EARTH DAY
Today on Wellsboro Home Page we present the latest edition of Dunham’s Corner with Ann Dunham Rawson. This is always an interesting and informative feature. Ann is so much fun to watch as she keeps us up to date with the latest products and sales being offered at Dunham’s Department Store. We just hope that the Shopping Channel doesn’t try to steal her away.
On today’s broadcast, Ann is focused on Earth Day. Dunham’s Department Store celebrates Earth Day every year with special products and savings just for you. She also highlights products that are eco-friendly and made in the USA. (Items made in America are held to higher EPA standards and cut down on shipping and transportation, therefore decreasing harmful emissions.)
COMMUNITY TALENT SHOW 2015

BACK TO BASICS – ORDER
“When life hands you lemons, make _______________.” Could you finish the sentence? Like most Americans, you’ve probably learned the art of turning lemons into lemonade. Sure, your life might feel like a series of bad circumstances, but you’ve somehow managed to navigate through them, one by one.
Learning to make the best of every situation is great, but it’s possible that your “can do” attitude is leading you deeper into trouble. The problem arises when we begin searching for solutions outside of the order that God has established. As the Author of all things, God has lovingly provided boundaries for all of creation. The best part? When we submit to His order, we discover that it is both for our good and His glory!
In John 8:31-32, Jesus said these words: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32 ESV)
As you continue to make your way through the circumstances of life, remember that it is not your best effort, but the Truth that sets you free.
