The Livingston County Community Foundation has announced a $5,000 grant to the Livingston County Health Center. The grant is part of a $30,000 project by the Health Center to fund a playground for senior citizens at Danner Park in Chillicothe. The playground will include a Senior Motion Wellness System from a company called Xccent Fitness. The design of the Motion Wellness System is to improve an individual's confidence, balance and strength needed to reduce falls and improve everyday life activities such as navigating stairs, reaching for items in a cupboard, or simply getting up out of a chair. The unit would take up a 30' square area at the park, surface mounted on a concrete pad, and will include shading to protect users from damaging UV rays. For more information about the Foundation, contact Ron Wilder at 660-646-0502.

A proposal declaring July 7th as Missouri Sliced Bread Day received overwhelming support by the Missouri House of Representatives recently. Upon its 128-16 vote approval, the bill was forwarded to the Missouri Senate and had its first reading. In his introductory remarks on the House floor, Rep. Rusty Black (R-Chillicothe), the bill's sponsor, provided information about the earliest records of bread up through the introduction of the world's first automatic bread slicing machine which was first used in 
Chillicothe, MO, on July 7, 1928. The proposal passed through the house with 128 "yes" votes and 16 "no" votes. This July 7th marks the 90th anniversary of sliced bread.
