Engineering a better candy cane

Make text smaller Make text larger


At Wednesday’s brief first regular Pike County commissioners' meeting of the year, there was time for joking. Pike County Extension’s Educator and 4-H coordinator Angie Smith (pictured) addressed the commissioners about the sweets they distributed for the holidays: “Your candy cane broke, you need to evaluate your engineering design process for next year." Smith also said the Extension’s office at 514 Broad St. in Milford will become a collection center for the Pike County Humane Society. She noted that on Saturday, Jan. 13, a live animal demonstration will take place in Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center organized by the 4-H Club, and open to ages 7 to 18. (Photo by Anya Tikka)
