AUBURN _ Many people began the New Year with intentions of incorporating a healthier way of living into their lives. In the United States alone, 44 percent of Americans (the same percentage as 2014) made resolutions to make a change to their current lifestyle, according to a poll by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, in Poughkeepsie, New York.

In many ways, technology improves our lives every day. We can pay bills with the tap of our fingers and a slide of the thumb. We make reservations for dinner, gather shopping lists, and stay connected with family and friends both near and far. Technology has impacted our lives in everything we do. If we leave the lights on, there is an app for turning them off remotely. We forget a birthday, a meeting, or to let the cat out and we can ask Siri to “Remind me every day at 9 p.m. to let Mr. Snuggles out.” In a fast-paced world, technology can keep us connected and on task.

AUBURN _ The need for coats, hats, and mittens for those less fortunate continues to grow each year, and it truly takes a community to make a marked difference.
South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT), an organization with deep roots in the Central Massachusetts community, has not lost sight of those in need. Through the goodness of its team, SCPT has inspired an annual Hat and Mitten Drive that will enter its second year this season. According to SCPT staff member Mary Haglund, the event began rather informally in 2011 with staff members donating hats and mittens to a few local social service organizations serving those less fortunate.
AUBURN _ In 2012, the staff at South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT) in Auburn began quietly collecting non-perishable food for the non-profit, Auburn Youth and Family Services, Inc.
