Clifton Health Department Offers Low Cost Women’s Cancer Screenings To Clifton And Little Falls Residents Only

In an effort to improve the health of the community, the Clifton Health Department invites women to attend the low cost women’s cancer screening on Friday, March 20, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.  This clinic is open to Clifton and Little Falls residents only. Appointments are required; call 973-470-5760 to schedule your appointment.  Dawn Ammirata, Advanced Practice Nurse, is attending in the women’s cancer screening clinic. This screening includes a Pap test, pelvic exam, physical breast exam, and blood pressure reading for a fee of $25; and colorectal cancer testing kits will be available for $10. Referrals for lower cost mammography are available upon request. Mammograms are not done on site. You can download a flyer with descriptive information here.

It is important for women age 21 and older to have Pap tests, along with pelvic exams, as part of their routine health care. However, women over age 70 do not need to be tested every year if they have had a number of normal Pap tests and have been told by their doctor they do not need to be tested anymore.

Clifton’s Public Health Nursing Supervisor, Leslie Leonard, BSN, RN, says, “A Pap test can find cancer of the cervix, a common cancer in women, before that disease moves to other parts of the body. If caught early, the chance of curing cervical cancer is very high. Pap tests also find infections and abnormal cervical cells that can turn into cancer cells. A Pap test can save a woman’s life!  Make a healthy choice and get tested!”

The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.

Little Falls to create Heritage Tourism Committee

“Little Falls Mayor Darlene Post announces the creation of the Heritage Tourism Committee which will be chaired by Renea Shappiro. The planned goals of this committee are to generate excitement while promoting economic development and to cultivate networks around heritage tourism in Little Falls by identifying attractions, restaurants, event groups, cultural groups and Township events. The Committee’s initial work will be to identify funding and address the need for a tourism website and branding.

“Additional information about the Heritage Tourism Committee will be presented during the upcoming year, during which time will be working closely with the County and the State who have also established similar initiatives.”




CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN: PSE&G OFFERS 12 WALLET-FRIENDLY WAYS TO SAVE ON YOUR ENERGY BILLS

(Newark, N.J. – Oct. 20, 2014) With cooler weather here, Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) offers some inexpensive (and sometimes free) ways that you can keep warm and save big on your gas and electric bills this winter.

Lower the thermostat. You can save 3 percent on your energy bill for every degree you lower the thermostat. Consider turning down your thermostat 5 to 10 degrees when you go to work, and when you go to bed.

Stop Drafts. Use weather stripping, caulk or foam to seal cracks and stop drafts in windows, doorframes and pipes running into your home. Special weather stripping is available for garage doors.

Use plastic film. On really drafty windows, install plastic film. You can buy a 10-window shrink film insulation kit for about $15.

Seal Ducts. Twenty to 30 percent of the air that moves through duct systems is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. Seal ducts using foil tape.

Close the damper. Your fireplace chimney can be the number one source of heat loss in a house. Leaving your flue open is like leaving a window wide open.

Change the filter. Clogged filters make it harder for your furnace to move air, which means it has to run longer to heat your house.

Use the sun. Open your curtains and blinds on sunny days to warm your home and close them at night to keep the warm air inside.

Wrap the water heater. Install a water heater insulation blanket. (Some cost as little as $20.) Turn down the temperature to the warm setting -- no more than 120°F.

Install new bulbs. Winter’s shorter days make it even more important to install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). They last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs -- and use 60 to 75 percent less electricity. 

Seal switches. Seal switches and electrical outlets with small foam gaskets available at hardware stores. Remove the cover plate, insert the gasket, and screw the cover plate back on.

Latch your windows. If windows are not fully closed and latched, warm air can escape.
