CAROLYN LONGWORTH--LIBRARY DIRECTOR Carolyn has worked at the Millicent Library since 1977 which is very hard to believe since she looks like a woman of no more than 35 years, if that. She became head librarian in 1985 and has held that post ever since. The state requires that a head librarian have a Master of Library Science and that's not an easy degree to earn. A native of Acushnet, she loves bird- ing and traveling. She's traveled to many countries and met many people, among them a friend of mine who has made her home in Zimbabwe. Sister Doris Russell used to have family here in Fairhaven whom she visited at least once a year, and it was on one of those visits that she came to the High School and asked if there were any sample books she could take back to the High School in Zimbabwe where she taught. That started a friendship between us which resulted in their high school having a library full of books from Fairhaven, because when I retired, Carolyn took over and sent them many discontinued books, and finally visited there herself. It's disturbing to us now that we have not heard from Sister Doris for a few years, especially realizing the unrest in that African country. The library was built by Henry Huttleston Rogers who owned a major share of the Mattapoisett and Fairhaven water supply which he made the basis of the support of the Millicent Library. Carolyn said that in 1930 Fair- haven started separate department, and the library is now a non-profit organization but greatly supported by the town through a formula for its financial upkeep. Carolyn is the caretaker of some pretty valuable things; for instance, there are letters from Mark Twain to Henry Rogers, a painting by Bierstadt of Martha Simon, and the most impressive of all, a page from the original Guten- berg Bible dating from about 1500. Then there's all the fine artwork and artifacts from our sister city in Japan. The library has many treasures available for visitors to see and admire as well as being a treasure itself. Low-sighted people will find a number of ways to "read". There are new recordings on machines that fit into one's pocket, with tiny headphones for those who like to walk and listen, there's an in-house magnifier for those who'd like to be a part of this quiet, peaceful atmosphere for awhile, etc. This seems to be more about the library than about Carolyn, but she's the centrifugal figure of this place. She wants to keep up with the latest technology and says, "contrary to some rumors, books are here to stay." She ended our interview with the observation that being there was like "floating in a dish of happiness." If you'd like to know what that means, and learn more what a library means to our town, be at the Senior Center to hear her on Wednesday, August 19th. She'll be here from 11:00 to 11:30. Florence C.

By evaluating your own personal needs and making an emergency plan, you can be better prepared for any situation. A commitment to planning today will help you prepare for any emergency situation. Preparing makes sense. Get ready now. • Consider how a disaster might affect your individual needs. • Plan to make it on your own, at least for a period of time. It's possible that you will not have access to a medical facility or even a drugstore. • Identify what kind of resources you use on a daily basis and what you might do if they are limited or not available. Get an emergency supply kit. • If you must evacuate, take your pets with you, if possible. However, if you are going to a public shelter, it is impor- tant to understand that animals may not be allowed inside. Plan in advance for shelter alternatives that will work for both you and your pets; consider loved ones or friends outside of your immediate area who would be willing to host you and your pets in an emergency. Create a Support Network • If you anticipate needing assistance during a disaster talk to family, friends and others who will be part of your per- sonal support network. • Write down and share each aspect of your emergency plan with everyone in your support network. • Make sure everyone knows how you plan to evacuate your home or workplace and where you will go in case of a disaster. • Make sure that someone in your local network has an extra key to your home and knows where you keep your emergency supplies. • Teach those who will help you how to use any lifesaving equipment, administer medicine in case of an emergency. Practice your plan with those who have agreed to be part of your network.

Eating out is supposed to be a social, relaxing experience, but for many people, going to a restaurant can create stress and disaster for their diet. With so many choices on the menu, it can take away from a positive dining experience. As the rate of obesity rises, many restaurants are jumping on the bandwagon to provide “healthy”, “low fat”, options. Restaurants are also more willing to substitute items or sides with healthier choices. Let’s look at some other simple ways to control the calories, sodium and fat when dining out. Before Your Meal: 1. Always begin your meal with water and sip on it throughout the meal. This will save you from hidden beverage calories and will fill you up. If you must order a drink, stick to 1 diet soda, glass of wine, or light beer. 2. Ask the waiter not to bring the breadbasket or request a smaller portion. Order a basic salad to fill up on low-calorie veggies before your meal comes, and ask for low-fat dressing on the side. Ordering Your Meal: 1. Don't be afraid to make substitutions. Instead of crispy, breaded or fried chicken, ask for grilled. Ask for steamed vegetables instead of cole slaw, baked potato instead of French fries. 2. Beware of hidden fats. These mouth watering words are typically loaded with extra calories: creamy, stuffed, bat- tered, parmesan, alfredo, au gratin, au fromage, special sauce. Take half of your meal home for a second meal. After Your Meal….Dessert? 1. Still hungry? No? Then stop eating! Listen to your body and if you are full… skip dessert this time! If dessert is a must, then share or opt for sorbet or low-fat ice cream. Remember, don’t deprive yourself of the foods you love, but be sensible. Bon appétit! EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Continued from page 2 Additional Supplies and Documents: Medications and Medical Supplies If you take medicine or use a medical treatment on a daily basis, be sure you have what you need to make it on your own for at least a week, maybe longer. • Make a list of prescription medicines including dosage, treatment and allergy information. • Talk to your pharmacist or doctor about what else you need to prepare. • If you undergo routine treatments administered by a clinic or hospital or if you receive regular services such as home health care, treatment or transportation, talk to your service provider about their emergency plans. Work with them to identify back-up service providers and incorporate them into your personal support network. Consider other personal needs such as eyeglasses, hearing aids and hearing aid batteries, wheelchair batteries, and oxy- gen. Emergency Documents Include copies of important documents in your emergency supply kits such as family records, medical records, wills, deeds, social security number, charge and bank accounts information and tax records. • Have copies of your medical insurance and Medicare cards readily available. • Keep a list of the style and serial number of medical devices or other life-sustaining devices. Include operating in- formation and instructions. • Make sure that a friend or family member has copies of these documents. • Include the names and contact information of your support network, as well as your medical providers. • If you have a communication disability, make sure your emergency information notes the best way to communicate with you. Keep these documents in a water proof container for quick and easy access. More Information For more information, see http://www.mass.gov/czm/hurricanes.htm, and the Red Cross website. SEE HEALTH AND EDUCATION PG. 7 FOR EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS There is an EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FORM available at the Fairhaven Senior Center and the Fire Department to help the town preparedness personnel be aware of your immediate support services, how emer- gency prepared you may be, who to contact in case of an emergency, and any health issues that may need at- tention. For more information, or to obtain an EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FORM, please come to the Fairhaven Senior Center at 229 Huttleston Avenue, or call 508-979-4029. LAND, AIR AND WATER - From Attorney General Martha Coakley’s Office Massachusetts residents can help preserve our natural resources by taking steps to safeguard our land, air and water and by reporting environmental violations to the appropriate agency. Land. Avoid the use of pesticides; learn about nonchemical alternatives. Keep items out of landfills by recycling, reduc- ing or reusing the items you have. Air. Plant a garden or a tree which will convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Take public transportation instead of using a car. Water. Replace lawns with other ground covers that use less water. Shower instead of taking a bath – a 40% savings in water use. Install low-flow shower heads. For hazardous emergencies, contact your local fire department and call the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s 24-hour Emergency Response section at 1-888-304-1133.
