Census Bureau Says Return Your Form

Friday, 02 April 2010 00:00

The 2010 Census is under way and those working on it urge residents to return their forms as soon as possible. The bureau hopes to receive as many back in the mail as possible prior to April 12. For those who do not mail back the form, a Census enumerator will begin knocking on doors after to record the information personally.

Those working on the Census stress its importance as the number of residents in a community can determine the amount of governmental aid a community will receive as well determine a community’s need when it comes to factors such as transportation and medical facilities. According to the Census Bureau, Census data “helps to determine how more than $400 billion of federal funding is spent on infrastructure and services.” In addition, the data will be used to redraw Congressional districts.

Years ago, former Plainview resident Ellen Pober Rittberg gave birth to three children all within a three-year time span. Such an experience gave her a unique perspective on parenting. Rittberg decided to parlay that into a book, 35 Things Your Teen Won’t Tell You, So I Will.

The book, published by Turner Publishing Company, is described as a “light-hearted, mini-manifesto of pragmatic parenting advice that teaches readers how to dig deep, survive and perhaps even crack the psyche of a hormonal, temperamental and ever-changing teen.” Rittberg’s three children—-Jay, Matt, and Kim—-were raised in Plainview.
