contribute's picture

Starting Wednesday June 6,2012, Front Street will be closed for the culvert repair. The street closing will effect Front St. at South Mill St. as well as, Ash St. during the hours of 7 AM to 7 PM. Our intentions are to complete the work in one day. Due to the nature of the repairs, it may require working longer than 7 PM but, we will do everything to avoid that. Detour signs will be in place and detail police officers will be there to assist motorists around the site.

Thank you,

The human body has an uncanny ability to heal itself, but sometimes it can go astray, or malfunction, really. That’s essentially what happens with systemic lupus, a disease of the immune system.

“Lupus is a condition where your immune system attacks your body.” says Martin Kafina, M.D. “Your immune system is supposed to be your friend and clean out your blood from viruses, germs and cellular debris, but instead your immune system gets irritated and confused and reacts against yourself. It can cause quite an amount of distress and sickness.”
