‘Masks 4 MontcoPA’ Volunteers Help Residents Stay Safe, Healthy

NORRISTOWN, PA — It takes a village to protect a county, and few know that better than the volunteers at Masks 4 MontcoPA, a cohort of residents freely offering their time and supplies to make homemade face masks for residents in need.

The work of Masks 4 MontcoPA is coordinated by Tammy Tarloski, Community Information Content Manager for the Department of Health and Human Services in Montgomery County.

Tarloski said the idea for the group was born early in the coronavirus pandemic from discussions within county government of how people can obtain masks. She said she created the Masks 4 MontcoPA Facebook group, but its growth has been largely spurred organically and through collaboration.

Tarloski said she originally created spreadsheets directing “sewists” — a combination of sewing and artist — to requests from those in need of masks, but the approach proved unnecessary thanks to the commitment sewists have to

A look inside one of America’s most racially divided suburbs

In the series Our Nation, Yahoo Life’s Brittany Jones-Cooper visits cities around America to examine how their histories of racial segregation and discrimination are affecting those same communities today.

I can’t be the only one asking myself, “How did we get here?” 

Instead of domestic tranquility, our nation is so divided that issues like equality and wearing a mask during a pandemic are heated debates. We are in unprecedented times, no doubt about that, and in order to move forward together, I believe we must examine the past. 

At a time when many in the United States are recognizing its systemic racism, I wanted to unpack the complicated histories of cities just like yours. Cities with sometimes shameful pasts that must be confronted, if an honest path forward is ever to be made. The first place I decided to visit was Long Island, N.Y., a sprawling suburb located just outside

Is Kyler Murray ready to take the leap?

The Yahoo Fantasy analysts will preview all 32 NFL teams between now and the eventual start of the 2020 draft season. Here, we’ll tackle pressing fantasy questions, #FantasyHotTaeks, and team win totals. Next up, the Arizona Cardinals.

Kyler Murray was the seventh-highest scoring fantasy QB as a rookie. He’s being selected as the fifth QB this year. Is his upside worth proactively drafting or are you waiting on a QB in the classic analyst move?

Matt: Kyle Murray doesn’t really have holes in his outlook. He plays for a progressive offensive mind who was flexible enough to adjust when injuries struck his receiver corps last year. The team added a true alpha No. 1 wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins. Not only will the former Texan provide a major boost to Murray as a passer, but he’s also a true coverage-dictating wide receiver who will boost the efficiency of the entire
