I am honored to celebrate a true unsung hero who was born in Bay Ridge and devoted her entire life in service to others. Sister Margaret Forsyth is a Notre Dame nun, who had served as a school principal, and returned to Bay Ridge 25 years ago to help her mother.Sister Forsyth was later appointed director of education and youth services at the Fort Hamilton Army Base. She worked with Bay Ridge youth groups and cared for hundreds of children at Fort Hamilton.Still going strong, she has refused to retire. Instead, she volunteers her services at a home for single mothers in Queens. She also volunteers at St. Anselms, since that parish is operated by the Sisters of Notre Dame. Sister Margie is truly my spiritual inspiration.COMMUNITY NEWSA folk remedy for hearing loss due to aging is to drink Fenugreek tea. Use one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds and simmer for five minutes. Let it cool, strain and drink the liquid on an empty stomach. It is said that hearing slowly returns, but after two months, the difference in hearing will be noticeable.
