The History and Growth of United Senior Services

Pt. 1 by Maureen Fagans, USS Executive Director

According to the National Council on Aging, older adults who participate in senior center programs experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being.

With that understanding and with the knowledge that many senior citizens in our community were increasingly isolated from their support systems as they aged, Betty B. Pitzer founded Elderly United, now United Senior Services (USS) in 1968. Since then, USS has grown into a comprehensive center for information and resources that support activity and involvement in the Clark County community and a social services agency that provides in home services to support living independently.

Portion Of Proceeds Goes To BCU Food Pantry

Nearly 80 people participated in Bethel Churches United’s Community Crop Walk on Sunday, September 21, garnering a record number of corporate sponsorships while helping the organization meet its goal of raising $10,000 for hunger-related charities.

Larry Fry said 48 corporate sponsors donated to this year’s event, and at the end of the walk, organizers tallied up $9,067 that they had raised, but expected that they would easily meet their $10,000 goal once everything was factored in.

New Carlisle’s Community Crop Walk began in the early 1970s, but Pastor Linda Mattila said similar events have been going on consistently in New Carlisle since the 1950s, when Wilmer Funderburg initiated fundraising events for those without enough to eat.

The Crop Walk program officially began in 1947 by Church World Services, which acted as a sort of liaison between Midwestern American farmers with excess grain and the starving masses in post-World War II’s

Club Sahari Evicted From Shopping Center PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maggie Yowler

The owner of the Park Layne bar Club Sahari was told by property owners and managers to move everything out of the establishment by tomorrow, September 25.

Sandy Harris, owner of Club Sahari, said she was given an eviction notice last Thursday, September 18, but was told today that everything must be packed up and moved from the bar by tomorrow at the latest.

The property manager of the shopping center said she could not comment on the situation, but the sudden eviction likely stems from the recent negative media attention given to the bar.

Several Park Layne residents attended the meeting of the Bethel Township Trustees last night to voice their concerns about Club Sahari, saying its patrons were likely contributing to the declining commerce in the shopping center due to fights in the parking lot and foul language.

The trustees told the concerned residents that they could not do anything about the situation until the bar's liquor license came up for review again in June, but said that based on the number of complaints and calls to the sheriff, that they would likely oppose the renewal of the license in June. One business owner in the center said their customer numbers had declined so much recently that they did not know whether their business would still be open in June.

*editors note:  We did not want to run the news release of the accident out of respect for Ms. Fisher & her family.  However; this release from Mr. Hobby focuses on the positives that occurred after the tragic event.*

On Saturday afternoon about 3:30, Jessica Fisher, a member of the Northwestern High School women's soccer team, was involved in a single car accident in which she sustained a compound fracture of her leg and some cuts and bruises after her vehicle rolled 4 times on Penny Pike, less than 1 mile from her house...no other internal injuries. Jessica was transported to Dayton Children's Hospital by care flight. She was heading to school to catch a bus with her teammates as they were going to Huber Heights Wayne High School to take on the Warriors. As a result of the accident, an agreement was made with Jay Minton, the Athletic Director at Wayne, to cancel the game as the Northwestern team was very emotional after the accident.

Flu activity has begun in Clark County. The Clark County Combined Health District (CCCHD) encourages Clark County residents to get their influenza vaccine.

So far this flu season, two influenza A-associated hospitalizations have been reported to CCCHD.

“Prevention continues to be the name of the game”, said Charles Patterson, Health Commissioner. “We encourage residents to get immunizations at their Doctor, Pharmacy, or at their local Health District”.

Symptoms of influenza can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. All residents should take time to get a flu vaccine as it is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. There are also everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of flu:

You can’t take too many steps in any direction these days without seeing the CROP Hunger Walk posters and signs: a foot print with the legend “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.” It is just about time for the annual 5K walk held every year here in New Carlisle, and heading out as usual from the starting point of New Carlisle Church of the Brethren on Main Street. The site of dedicated walkers (and sometimes runners, bikers and roller skaters!) is an annual event, but this year we are adding a new element.

Well, a new one…and an “old” one. For the first time locally, the Bethel Churches United organizers are adding a new
