The Newtown Grant Annual Garage sale is
not to be missed this year!!!  
Saturday, September 16th, the Recreation
Center parking lot will be turned into a
shoppers delight of slightly used furniture,
toys, clothes, household items and helpful
Boy Scouts selling coffee and hot dogs.  
Parking attendants will direct you to the softball field for parking between
8 am and 1 pm, for a nominal donation to Troop 99.  Should you decide to
park on Eagle Road, please remember that if you are inside the road line
even the slightest, you will be ticketed. The rain date is the next day.  

The speed limit in Newtown Grant is 25 mph. Often, drivers are seen going
twice as fast as that.
Management is in receipt of complaints at South Drive, North Drive, and
Please remember the school buses are running again.
Requests for an undercover police officer presence has been made.
Hi, I'm Jessica Rivera. The new recreation manager working with David Mensah. I am
excited to be starting this new adventure with Newtown Grant and First Service and hope to
be able to fulfill my duties and assist all residents as well as my coworkers in any way I can.
Here's a little bit about me, I was born and raised in New Jersey but I've been living in
Pennsylvania for almost 2 years. I graduated in 2001 from Trenton Central High School and
attended Mercer County Community College and Bucks County Community College. I love
family and kids and if there's any way I could spend my free time, it would be with them. I
love to read but I was just recently introduced to audiobooks and I'm hooked.
I love dogs. I have 2 of my own ( a chihuahua and a bulldog). I like to try new foods and new recipes but on
the opposite of that I try to stay active by walking or running several times a week.
So, what is the big deal with leash laws anyway? If your dog has wonderful recall and you can trust him to stay by your
side in any situation, why should you cramp his freedom? Hopefully the following scenarios will convince you that the
best thing you can do to keep your pet safe is to keep him leashed. A leash gives you both control and protection over
your furry loved one.
 you are out for a stroll and a fox runs out of the bushes next to you.
Fortunately, you pull sweet Buster away because you have him on a close lead. Picture that
scenario without the leash. Buster springs into action and tries to protect both of you from the
wild beast. All of a sudden you, Buster, and the fox are all rumbling on the ground. The end
result (best case scenario) – an expensive vet bill and a trip to the emergency room to receive a
series of multiple injections of human rabies immune globulin and rabies vaccination.
Also, Buster will now require an in-home quarantine. If you have been diligent with your vet visits and Buster is current
on rabies vaccination, this quarantine will last 90 days. If life got busy and Buster is overdue or unvaccinated for rabies,
then you are looking at a 6-month quarantine. During this time, Buster may not leave your property and you may receive
periodic visits from animal control to ensure you are compliant. Quite a downer on Busters summer that he has to refrain
from neighborhood walks for the next 6 months!
 You are out for a walk and Buster gets scared by a group of unruly
screaming children. Fortunately, you have him on a leash, so you quickly cross the street to
the other side and go along with your walk. Now picture that scenario without the leash. One
of the children steps on Busters tail and he responds by biting the boys ankle. End result – a
boy that is afraid of dogs for the rest of his life, a neighbor who presses charges for medical
bills and emotional damages, and an animal control officer knocking on your door to ensure
compliance with an in-home quarantine of 10 days. If Buster doesnt have a current rabies
vaccination and county dog license, you could also be looking at a $300 fine.
Note with both of these scenarios: it is always advisable to seek both human and pet medical care after an incident, no
matter how small the wound may appear, as delaying may result in infection or more substantial injury.
Its easy to see how a simple tool like a leash can greatly change the outcome of many potentially bad situations. A quick
word of advice on leashes – dont use a retractable one. These give you so little control over your pet that you could still
end up rumbling with the fox, dealing with a dog bite lawsuit, or trying to pull your dog out of traffic. They wrap around
peoples legs creating brush burns, they break if your dog runs to the end at a fast clip, and they are basically the worst
thing ever invented. End of retractable leash public service announcement.
If your dog doesnt do well on a leash and you are concerned about possible
aggression towards people or other dogs, here are a few simple tips. Walk early in the
morning, late at night, or during a light rain as this will minimize the amount of other
people and pets you will encounter. Invest in a special harness with a clasp at the
front of the chest or a gentle leader which has an additional strap around the muzzle
to give added control. When approaching dogs and people, cross to the other side of
the street to give yourself plenty of distance to avoid confrontation. Advise other
walkers not to approach your dog, because unfortunately not everyone understands
that your dog does not want to meettheir dog. There are also plenty of wonderful
trainers out there to help. Feel free to call my office for recommendations.

What are you doing Thursday, September 14th, 2017? I simply need to
inquire? What about attending Zumba class at the Newtown Club House
starting at 7:30pm for another 8-week session.
Zumba is both a movement class and a wellness class. Beside its heart-
medical advantages, Zumba give an exercise to the entire body. From head
and shoulder rolls that extricate up the neck and warm up the abdominal
area, to footwork that reinforces and extends calves and lower legs, this
wellness strategy addresses about each muscle and joint.
Indeed, even the individuals who are simply taking in the move steps will wind up awakening the day after a
Zumba class with a conclusive post-exercise feeling. Hips and abs get specific consideration in the Latin
movement style, and as with many movement practice classes, thighs and butts frequently wind up being sore
the day after class. Adaptability is not disregarded in a Zumba class either, with warm-ups and cool-downs a
normal piece of Zumba programming.
