Taking a look at that calendar the school sent out, it looks like our high schoolers are pretty busy. There is a game of some sort every week night and even on a few Saturdays, either junior varsity or var- sity, football or volleyball. Ifyouwant a night out and enjoywatching kids play a good game, check out the calendar and see who is playing where and lend some support to our very own stu- dents. Sometimes I think we see a higher level of skill and sportsmanship there than we do on the big screen, where athletes make more per game than what our house and car cost com- bined. The Lewiston Garden Club is not done yet providing with us something to check out. They will be at the Farmer's Market in our downtown for a plant exchange on Saturday, Sept. 28. Theywill have perennials, cuttings and seeds to choose from, and you can bringyour to trade as well. Theywill be there from 9 a.m. until noon or until they run out. It is great way to share what you need to thin out and also have an opportunity to try something in your own garden without having to purchase something that may not be happy in your yard. • Sundayfrom noon until5 p.m. will be ' a pasta dinner, along with raffles, a silent auction and a bake sale to ben- efit Michelle Carnago. She recently underwent surgery at U of M hospital for a brain aneurysm and now has enormous medical bills to contend with. Bill Mangrum will be providing musical entertainment. Various res- taurants in town will be providing their favorite pasta dishes for your enjoy- ment. Donation is by a flee-will offer- Medicaid expansion bill Continued from page 1 quence of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold the health care law in 2012. Snyder maintains he opposes the underlying law, but he also argues the budgetary benefits and potential to provide health coverage to residents makes broadening Medicaid a good deal for the state. The state's Senators and Representatives, however, are far from united on the issue of Medicaid expansion, and Republicans in the Senate denied immediate effect of the bill, meaning implementation cannot begin until late March or April. Rep. Greg MacMaster, (R) Dist. 105, initially voted in favor of Medicaid expansion but later changed his vote. "I didn't want to vote on it until we had a better idea of the impact," MacMaster said. He has concerns, he said, because there are no safe- guards in place for those who can't afford health insur- ance after three or four years. "Once that money dries up and we have to be respon- sible for taking that over, I don't know where it's going to go," MacMaster explained. He said he's also not in favor of the Governor's plan to put the state's savings from the new law into roads in- stead of back into health care. MacMaster said a policy along the lines of a health savings account would be a better option. Such a bill has been introduced, but MacMaster said changing the law before it goes into effect next year would take the involvement of leadership considering other options. "All options are on the table. We need to look at every- thing and not be closed-minded," MacMaster said. The federal government is currently awaiting ap- 3roval from Congress to borrow money for its cur- rent obligations. The Re- publican-led House has voted in favor of funding the government as long as Obamacare is defunded. The Senate has yet €o re- spond, and President Barack Obama has indi- cated he will veto the vote of the House if need be.

September is Hunger Action Month In recognition of Hunger Action Month, the Mont- morency County Commission on Aging staff will be wearing orange in support of the "Orange You Aren't Hungry" campaign. MCCOA will be hosting a food drive on Thursday, September 26 from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the MCCOA office, Atlanta and Hillman Senior Centers, and the Lewiston 50+ Club. Non-perishable food donations that are collected will be re-distributed to the senior citizens of Montmorency County that are in critical need of nutritional support. 2011 food insecurity data obtained through the Feed- ing America organization indicates that Montmorency County has 17.5% population, or 1,720 food insecure people in our county that do not have adequate food available to them. The nationwide average is 16.4%. 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. Executive Director Anna Rogers would like to encour- age the community to support the food drive in anyway they can, either in product donation or financial dona- tion toward the purchase of food for our residents. Please remember, hunger could be with a friend, family mem- ber, neighbor or someone you know. As many Michigan residents are finding out, it may affect you at any given time. Thank you for your generous support. Together we can solve hunger. TBTA is lm)ud to be tn'ovklhlg public wanstx)ltfion options to Montmorency Cotlnty tbr over 25 years.
