  • Loretto Community denounces suspension of DACA

    The Loretto Community is deeply disappointed and angered by the decision of the Trump administration to suspend the DACA Executive Order and break our nation’s promise to 800,000 young Dreamers. Loretto urges congressional passage of the bi-partisan DREAM Act, which would convert DACA – the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Executive Order, issued by President Obama and yesterday suspended by the Trump administration – into federal law.

    Family is forever
    At the Village of Lebanon Assisted Living we are one big family. When moving a loved one into an assisted living community, one important word that comes to mind is “trust.“ You want the peace of mind that your loved one will receive the utmost care by professionals who will treat them like their own family.

  • ‘The regulars’

    Five out of seven days a week, my alarm sounds at 4 a.m.
    Yes, 4 a.m.
    No, I don’t have cows to milk or livestock to feed.
    I willingly choose to get up really early, put on my gym clothes, take the dogs out to do their business, and then drive to Fitness One in Lebanon.

    I can always expect “the regulars” to be there.

  • We will fix the state’s pension problems

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed

    The independent consulting group, PFM, commissioned by the state to examine our pension problems, released their long-awaited report on Aug. 28. In the midst of much news reporting and information being pushed, it is important to note that the report only lists PFM’s proposals, and any legislative action will not mirror the full recommendations.

  • How 2-1-1 helps address our workforce supply crisis

    By Megan Stith

    We’ve all had a day when something upset our pre-work routine. It could have been a flat tire, a child with a sudden fever and, hence, no daycare option, or a power outage that knocked out your alarm clock and every appliance in the kitchen. Those are bad days, to say the least, even for those of us who have flexibility and solid support systems.
