From my College Friend, Sue Cuny Roberts: “Last year on 9/11 I posted about the caring and kindness that I witnessed on the streets of NYC in the days that followed such tragedy. The unity that I witnessed made me so proud to be an American. With so much of our country dealing with the devastation of Harvey and Irma, I am once again reminded of our amazing ability as Americans and as human beings to come together to love, to support and to care. In honor of all those lost on 9/11 and in honor of our first responders, let’s all give love, peace and kindness and then let’s find it in ourselves to give just a little more. #neverforget“
Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

Have you ever had the experience where your child pulls out a notice from their school nurse, informing you that there’s been a lice outbreak in their class or school? If it left you feeling worried, grossed out, or even a little itchy, you’re not alone. Many parents have similar reactions.
Dealing with an infestation of head lice can be unpleasant. It’s important to recognize that head lice aren’t a sign of uncleanliness or poor hygiene. Anyone who comes into close contact with someone who has head lice, or their personal belongings, can potentially get it.
If your child or another family member gets head lice, take steps to treat it quickly. Over-the-counter medications may cure the problem. If not consider prescription medications (Slice and Ovide Permethrin Cream) that are strong enough to kill most cases of lice and nits. Stop in or call Canandaigua The Medicine Shoppe to see how we help you.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
The new "Finger Lakes" walk of fame in Geneva honors 19 people, 14 of whom have ties primarily to Rochester, which is not in the Finger Lakes. Which of these real Finger Lakes people do you think is most deserving?
