at Senior Center
Chris Darling from Crone's Drugstore, and also the pharmacist for the new Darlings Pharmacy in the Tidioute Medical and Dental Center, presented a program on how to dispose of your old prescriptions according to the federal guidelines.
- Do Not flush prescription drugs down the toilet or drain, unless the label instructs you to do so.
- If they cannot be flushed you can take advantage of the community drug take-back programs. Consult your pharmacist for this information.
- If a drug take back program is not available:
- Take drugs out of original container, mix with an undesirable substance-such as cat litter or used coffee grounds., put mixture into a disposable container with a lid such as an empty margarine tub or into a ziplock bag. Conceal or remove any personal information including Rx number on the empty containers by covering it with black permanent marker or duct tape or by scratching it off. Place the sealed container with the mixture and the empty drug containers in the trash.
Darling also took blood pressure and told of plans he has for the pharmacy in Tidioute.

Visit tall ships
Last Friday, the U.S. Brig Niagara returned to Erie from a summer-long voyage with five other sailing ships. Each of theirs ships shares in the educational mission of taking people to sea to learn lessons valuable throughout their lives. The Ship staff highlighted the historical significance of the ships.
All of Tidioute Community Charter School's 4th and 5th grade students had the opportunity to board two of the six ships. They had dockside presentations of three other ships while at the event.
The six ships at the event were the US Brig Niagara; the fourth incarnation of the wooden ship built in Erie that fought in the War of 1812.
The Roald Amundson, a steel German-built vessel, takes on volunteer crew for an apprenticeship wherein volunteers from different countries all learn not only to be part of a crew but part of an International Community.
Pride of Baltimore II is a modern interpretation of a design known as the Baltimore Clipper, whose chief characteristic was high speed and was often employed as privateer during the War of 1812.
The Lynx is a recently built vessel is another Baltimore Clipper Privateer schooner. The original ship was used as a private war ship in the War of 1812.
The Unicorn was built in the tradition of a small European cargo vessel at the end of the 19th century. The Unicorn sails primarily with female trainees, instilling lessons of empowerment for young women gained by acceptance of challenge.
The sixth ship was the Bounty. It was built for the 1964 movie version of Mutiny on the Bounty. This wooden ship is a representative of a mid-eighteenth century cargo vessel capable of sailing all over the globe.
The field trip was a spectacular change for the students to see and learn about history. The presentations were very interesting and the students enjoyed the small group presentations. This field trip was made possible by TCCS's Student Activities Committee.
