    Obesity has proven to be an issue on a wide enough scale as in to say the national level, but the issue seems more sever when it is seen closer towards home. According to Open Data Networks and Data USA Clarion County has a population of approximately 39,437. About 33.40% is considered to be overweight. Now narrowing to the town of Clarion with a population of roughly 5,000 people. About 19.5% of the 5000 people living in Clarion are considered to be overweight.

It had been a hard year after breaking my arm and having to attend physical therapy. There was not a lot that I could do after that. The doctor said no driving, no jumping, no heavy lifting, and of course not a lot of cheerleading. I sat in silence as I watched my spot in the routine get replaced, it…

If there is any competition locally, the Clarion Free Library can compete based on what materials, services, and databases are offered as the town’s public library. Other…
