Time to get sloppy! I am finally sharing one of my all time favorite recipes from my favorite blogger, Lillie Eats and Tells. The Sloppy Joe Skillet has become a staple in my house. You would never guess it's loaded with veggies, uses ground turkey in place of beef, and takes your Sloppy Joe to the next level!

Donate to Senior Center

Mr. James Hartsfield, Area Agent, Small Farm Management, and Mr. Walter Adams, Agricultural & Natural Resources Technician II with Duplin County Extension Center collected and donated canned goods and other non-perishable items. These items were given to the senior center in support of "Small Farms Week".

Mr. Tom Hroza, Extension Agent, Agriculture/Horticulture provided some handouts, “You Are What You Eat” and the “The Fun of Food Gardening”. These materials will encourage and promote eating local foods which build healthy bodies and healthy communities.

The agency is very appreciative of the canned goods and non-perishable items given to the senior center.

Do you love peanut butter? If so… today is YOUR day! Peanut butter is such a versatile food. It can be served at any meal or snack time. Peanut butter on toast for breakfast. Peanut butter sandwiches for lunch. Turned into a peanut sauce for dinner. Spread on apple or banana slices for a snack. Sadly, with the high increase in dangerous peanut allergies over recent decades, lots of children have grown up without knowing the taste of peanut butter. HAPPY PEANUT BUTTER LOVER’S DAY!

This morning, we had a visit from Duplin County Senior Games Ambassador, Mr. Rudolph Becton. He came by to drop off his application for the Neuse River Senior Games competition scheduled April 17 – May 7, 2021. Mr. Becton is such a treasure and encourager for staff and seniors. Competition this year will look different, however, it still will happen in New Bern, N.C. The deadline to register is Friday, March 12, 2021. Mr. Becton asked that we share his words to our community. “I want our seniors to participate and represent Duplin County. We can beat this pandemic. Don’t sit at home as your health will only get worse. We can participate in select events safely”. For more information contact the senior center at 910-296-2140.

Wanting to up the veggies at breakfast? Try this Turkey Bacon and Spinach Quiche from the American Heart Association. The crust is made from grated sweet potatoes in place of pastry crust to slash the calories and adds a touch of subtle sweetness to the quiche. You may even want to have breakfast for dinner after you try this!

Thank you, Mrs. January Brown, Family Caregiver Specialist, Eastern Carolina Council Area Agency on Aging for the delivery this morning. The “fidget” squares are beautifully crafted and will be a “special” gift for our caregivers and their loved ones. The additional resource books and journals are an awesome way to record information for safe keeping and sharing with family members. If you would like to learn more about the family caregiver program, please call Frankie Hobbs at 910-296-2140.

What is your definition of “love”? Love is shown in kindness. Love is providing a meal. Love is service to others. Every day we are reminded of opportunities to show love and kindness. As we approach Valentine’s Day, let us remember to show even more love to others. This morning, love and kindness was shown to our staff. It is going to be a great day.

The seniors participating in the meal delivery or meal pick-ups will receive the paper copy survey. If you need assistance to complete the survey, you can call the senior center at 910-296-2140.

The Ombudsman Program developed a community survey to assist with the Area Agency on Aging’s community needs project. The survey asked questions related to long-term care, family caregiver support, evidence-based programs, and volunteerism. The survey was distributed region-wide to service providers, senior service recipients, and other stakeholders in the senior services community. The results of the survey will be used to show county leadership the services that may be lacking in their communities and to assist them with making informed programmatic decisions.

Okay, seriously, you are a government agency. YOUR EMPLOYEES NEED TO STOP VIOLATING THE ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION! HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU NEED TO BE TOLD? WHY do you insist on doing it? Once again I used the Transportation bus - for a Medicaid ride - and the driver was playing a religious radio station on the vehicle's radio, loudly enough that I could hear it all the way in the back. You have been contacted multiple times by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and informed that this needs to stop. I know this because they did it on my behalf. Well now I am telling you myself, despite the likelihood of being ostracized and/or treated differently. Are you even telling your drivers that they may not do so, and that it is against the law? Let me refresh everyone's memory here: "Amendment One Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." The United States Supreme Court decided that it applies to ALL levels and agencies of government, from federal to municipal, and this is backed up in two places. First, in the main body of the Constitution itself, is Article VI, Clause 2: "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." Second is with the Equal Protection Clause at the end of the 14th Amendment: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Your drivers are government employees, representatives of the government, and as such are extensions of the government, and so may not act in violation of any Federal and/or Constitutional law. I, along with every single other citizen, have the Constitutional right to NOT be subjected to religious materials by my government and its representatives. I should not have to be forced to ask for you to not violate my civil rights. You may not retaliate as if I am asking for special treatment; you may not retaliate at all, in fact. One, I am not doing so, and two, demanding that you not violate the United States Constitution cannot be described as "special treatment" by even the most obtuse observer. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE. I have been beyond patient in this matter. I have no wish to initiate legal action - not to mention that I shouldn't even have to - but another violation WILL result in more serious action than a mere complaint. The State's Attorney General WILL BE brought into the matter if the violations continue. To make it clear, when the drivers are ALONE in the vehicles, then they may listen to religious programs all they want. That is THEIR Constitutional right under the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. HOWEVER, once a passenger boards the vehicle, the driver assumes the role of government representative, and so their civil rights and liberties are secondary to the rights and liberties of the passengers, who are average citizens whose rights and liberties are protected by the United States Constitution. And NO, I am NOT looking for any punitive actions to be taken against the drivers. I just want you to remind them of their responsibilities and obligations.
I am looking for some assistance for an elder neighbor. Her water was cut off a week ago and she can't lay to have it turned back on. Where do we start? She also need good assistance.
