“I think I’m in the best position to do it. I’m a compassionate advocate, I’m a mother, I’m a small business owner, I’ve faced tough elections,” said Tenney. Former Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, has her eyes on regaining the seat once again after she was defeated by incumbent and democrat, Anthony Brindisi, in 2018. Meanwhile, she faces Seton Catholic Central and SUNY Broome history teacher, George Phillips, in the race after beating him in the 2018 primary election. “I’m the only one who can beat Anthony Brindisi,” said Phillips. “Tenney lost to the district that the president won by 15 points. It’s a big republican district and I’m the only one that can beat Brindisi in this election in the fall.” In response, Tenney says, “The only people that are going to rebuild this are the people who built the economy in the first place and that’s President Trump and the republicans, so people like me who understand small business.” (WBNG) — As the race for New York’s 22nd Congressional District seat heats up, both republican candidates express their goals before the primary. The candidates say they want to focus on the financial comeback for the 22nd district from the pandemic crisis. In response to the crisis, Phillips says, “I’ve laid out a plan on the economic issues that are so important here… I’m the only one with true conservative values.” Both candidates say they are the best ones to beat Anthony Brindisi in the general election come November. Phillips saying he is the better pick because he represents the Southern Tier as someone who is a strong member of the community. Tenney says she is the better pick because of her experience with elections and politics as well as being an owner of a small business.

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Some call it the most wonderful time of the year, but for more people than you’d think, the winter months and holiday season can bring about feelings of depression and anxiety.“The demands that many place on themselves to attend to and meet the expectations of others may contribute to anxiety and stress,” says Northern Health Clinical Educator Damen DeLeenheer.“On top of all of this, the shorter days and longer nights can lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder, making the holiday season even more difficult to enjoy.”- Advertisement -He says family traditions, festivities and financial problems can be big contributors to those adverse feelings.“If maintaining a tradition isn’t making anyone happy, consider letting it go and creating a new one,” he adds. “This is your holiday, and not the Griswold’s.”In regards to finances, he says the expenses of the holidays can bring on stress, especially when the billed are tallied in the New Year.Advertisement “Setting a budget and tracking how closely you are keeping it can help reduce stress associated with finances.”If you think you may have Seasonal Affective Disorder, or someone you know may have it, DeLeenheer suggests you ask yourself the following questions: ‘Over the past two weeks, have you experienced little interest in doing things? Have you been feeling down, depressed or hopeless?’ If the answer is yes for more than half of the days, he urges considering some support.Northern Health also suggests a healthy diet, staying active, and spending more time outdoors in the sunlight to help combat seasonal affective disorder during the dark, cold winter months.
