Forsyth county: Senior Services has been awarded a $1 million dollar grant to help fund their ‘Memory Connections’, an Alzheimer’s Initiative Project.

The project has a goal of enhancing Alzheimer’s / dementia education, prevention and care throughout our community, specifically targeting people with dementia who live alone, plus increased support for family caregivers. 

Did you know: Summer’s heat is tougher on car batteries than winter’s chill.

The damage done during the hot summertime can weaken your vehicle’s battery causing it to ‘fail’ during the winter months. *Most batteries last between 3 to 5 years.

AAA: Not sure if you need a new battery? Pay attention to these signs:

Slow cranking engine at start up

Clicking or buzzing sound when you turn on the ignition

Dim headlights, especially when your car is idling

Corrosion, cracks, or bulges of your battery

ALERT: The FDA is warning about a rise in teens and youngsters trying ‘dangerous’ social media challenges. One recent challenge encouraged people to cook chicken in NyQuil and similar over-the-counter cough and cold medicines. ER visits are up. And attempting these challenges could be deadly.

Update: Hurricane Fiona is now a Category 4 storm with winds as high as 130 mph. Residents in Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic now face a prolonged recovery process, after devastating flooding and winds damaged critical water and power infrastructures.  Source: National Hurricane Center
