TaiChi offered at Elmore Senior Center

It focuses on improving functional ability such as balance and physical function, to reduce fall-related risks and frequency. It has been demonstrated to reduce falls and improves fitness for older adults.

Tip Jars

Tip Jars come out for Summer. It rather amazes me as to the growing Port Clinton/Marblehead area ‘tip jars’ at restuarants, services venues, or a tip jar for buying a ferry ticket? and such. Why a tip jar for carry out? Or further, a jar next to the cash register, as if you didn’t leave enough at the table. I consider it indicative of the community, ‘squeeze the buck while you can!” We, local people, know very well how prices go up in Summer.
