News from the Deer Creek Coffeehouse
On Saturday, November 22 at 7:30 pm Deer Creek Coffeehouse welcomes back fan favorite, Tom Prasada-Rao. Tom is a musician’s musician – an unassuming presence on the folk scene since the early nineties. His voice belies his musicianship and his extraordinary songs. From Rishi’s Garden with it’s homage to Ravi Shankar to the groove of Sleeping Beauty. Tom’s music is melodic, ambitious, and reverent. A multi-instrumentalist, you may see him play guitar, piano, sitar, violin, ukulele or mandolin on any given night.
In addition to producing, he took a job teaching music at White Rock Montessori in Dallas – TPR was formerly the songwriting teacher at The University of Virginia’s Young Writer’s Workshops – where he created the songwriting curriculum and taught for eight years. From headlining major festivals 15 years ago, to the relative obscurity of his recording studio – Tom has continued to mature as an artist. That work has blossomed into an impressive resume of producing credits as well as cuts (his songs covered by other artists). Tom is a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Winner, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Most Wanted, WAMA (Washington Area Musician’s

INFORMATION ABOUT HEALTH INSURANCE OPTIONS
Bel Air, MD – October 16, 2014 – As the Affordable Care Act continues to roll out across the country, Seedco and the Harford County Health Department are partnering to offer opportunities to learn more about what health insurance options are available locally.
On Saturday, November 15th, certified Navigators also will be on-hand at the Bel Air branch of the Harford County Public Library, located at 100 E. Pennsylvania Avenue in Bel Air from 1:00 to 4:00pm to host a program entitled, “Learn the Ins and Outs’ of Health Insurance.” Enrollment options and the enrollment process will be discussed there, as well, and staff will entertain questions.
More information is available by calling the toll-free Seedco Hotline at 866-492-6057, by contacting the Health Department’s Division of Care Coordination at 410-273-5626 and asking about the Maryland Health Connection or by visiting www.harfordcountyhealth.com.
EBOLA EDUCATION AND PREPARATION IS A TOP PRIORITY IN HARFORD COUNTY
Bel Air, MD – October 24, 2014 – Wednesday, Emergency Management called together over 100 county partners at the County Council Chambers to listen to the Health Department’s Ebola information presentation and learn about the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health’s preparations for the possible care of an Ebola patient.
The health department has a dedicated section on its website www.harfordcountyhealth.com about Ebola. However the most important messages are: 1) The Ebola virus is hard to catch. 2) A person can only catch Ebola by coming in contact with the blood or body fluid of someone who has received a diagnosis of Ebola. 3) A person is not contagious unless they show symptoms. 4) A person is not tested for Ebola unless they have traveled to an area with Ebola such as Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea AND the person is showing symptoms. 5) Ebola is NOT spread through air or water.
The Health Officer, Susan Kelly, stated, “County residents are much more likely to get the flu, which is spread through the air, than Ebola and therefore it is very important for everyone to get the flu vaccine this year.”

In this dramatic follow-up to the widely acclaimed UNDER OUR SKIN, EMERGENCE takes the viewer on a journey from horror to hope. We witness the emerging epidemic of Lyme disease as infection and education spread globally. We watch as the truth emerges about the disease’s persistence and reach, about promising new research, and about medical collusion and conflicts of interest that continue to impede progress. We revisit the characters from UNDER OUR SKIN as they emerge into better health, reclaiming their lives and dignity, and offering hope to the legions now suffering. As Lyme disease surges, EMERGENCE shines a probing light on the issue and becomes a beacon in the dark.
