Meet the Thornes

Brad and Colleen Thorne live in Peach Bottom, Lancaster County, but they feel most at home when traveling in their RV—a billboard on wheels for Plastic Pennies, a statewide mission they created to collect used gift cards, recycle them and donate any leftover balance on the card to local nonprofits (see related story on page 8).

Are You a Love Optimist?

Research shows that couples who blissfully stay together for a lifetime have an uncanny ability to downplay the negative and highlight the positive in their mates and their relationships. When you are with your friends, do you talk up your mate’s overall helpfulness or do you prefer to tell a juicy story about the one incredibly thoughtless...
