THIS DAY IN HISTORY - April 7
Civil war erupts in Rwanda - 1994
On this day in 1994, Rwandan armed forces kill 10 Belgian peacekeeping officers in a successful effort to discourage international intervention in the genocide that had begun only hours earlier. In approximately three months, the Hutu extremists who controlled Rwanda brutally murdered an estimated 500,000 to 1 million innocent civilian Tutsis and moderate Hutus in the worst episode of ethnic genocide since World War II.
The immediate roots of the 1994 genocide dated back to the early 1990s, when President Juvenal Habyarimana, a Hutu, began using anti-Tutsi rhetoric to consolidate his power among the Hutus. Beginning in October 1990, there were several massacres of hundreds of Tutsis. Although the two ethnic groups were very similar, sharing the same language and culture for centuries, the law required registration based on ethnicity. The government and army began to assemble the Interahamwe (meaning “those who attack together”) and prepared for the elimination of the Tutsis by arming Hutus with guns and machetes. In January 1994, the United Nations forces in Rwanda warned that larger massacres were imminent.
By the summer, the RPF had defeated the Hutu forces and driven them out of the country and into several neighboring nations. However, by that time, an estimated 75 percent of the Tutsis living in Rwanda had been murdered.

Recently In Monroe Daily......
St. Louis moves 122-year-old home seven-tenths of a mile
(UPI) -- The city of St. Louis, Mo., moved a 122-year-old house about seven-tenths of a mile to make room for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's new campus.The home of Charlesetta Taylor, 81, was loaded onto a truck Sunday morning and slowly driven through the city's streets to its new location.
Taylor had been a vocal opponent of the St. Louis Development Corp.'s plan to give the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency a 96-acre sits for its new $1.75 billion campus, leading officials to promise Taylor they would move her home to a new location of her choosing outside the area of the eminent domain project.
"This is making good on a promise that we made," Mayor Francis Slay said in a statement provided to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The process of moving the home, which was built in 1895 and purchased by Taylor's family in 1945, began at 7 a.m. Sunday and the house arrived at its destination about 1:30 p.m.
John Matyiko, owner of Expert House Movers, which was contracted for the move, said the house weighs nearly 370 tons.
"To put it in proportion, we moved the original airport terminal in Newark, New Jersey, and that was 7,000 tons," he told St. Louis Public Radio. "And the tallest building we moved was 21 stories."
Food and Entertaining...
The smart advice that makes clean eating an attainable lifestyle choice
(BPT) - Healthy eating trends come and go. Sometimes the fads are extreme, over-the-top and hard to maintain, but others offer simple, attainable changes that make them well worth incorporating into your lifestyle. Clean eating, actively seeking out foods that are minimally processed with simple, natural ingredients, is a relatively recent food trend that's well on its way to becoming a popular lifestyle choice for many people. Over the past several years, more Americans have begun seeking out foods with simple, familiar ingredient lists. The clean eating trend incorporates some very healthful practices, such as eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean, wholesome proteins.
Although some interpret the idea of "clean eating" as eliminating entire food groups, such as dairy or anything that contains gluten, the true essence of clean eating is to eat a wide variety of nutritious, wholesome foods that are minimally processed.
If you're thinking of incorporating clean eating into your lifestyle this year, here are some tips to get you started:
* Read labels. Foods that align with the "clean eating" trend will have fewer ingredients, and ingredients will be easily recognizable as food rather than additives or preservatives. For example, JENNIE-O(R) All Natural Turkey Sausage and JENNIE-O(R) Hot All Natural Turkey Sausage contain only turkey, salt, spices, sugar and rosemary extract. Both varieties are flavorful and satisfying with reduced sodium content and only 110 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving.
* Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. That's where you'll find the least processed foods, including the produce section, dairy and egg cases. You can even find minimally processed foods, such as frozen fruit and veggies, in the freezer section.
* Rely on water to quench your thirst. Plain water is the most natural, healthful beverage you can drink.
The best way to approach clean eating is to think in terms of what you will eat, rather than what you might eliminate. Choose lean protein sources like all-natural turkey, nutritious whole grains, fruits and vegetables and you'll find eating clean can be delicious, easy and rewarding.
Start your clean eating lifestyle today by trying this breakfast recipe from Jennie-O:
Southwestern Turkey-Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (1-pound) package JENNIE-O(R) All Natural Turkey Sausage
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced
1 teaspoon ground chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt, if desired
6 medium eggs, if desired
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat oven to 400 F.
In large cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook turkey sausage as specified on the package. Cook to well-done - 165 F as measured by a meat thermometer - and crumble. Add onion and sweet potato and cook five minutes. Stir in bell peppers, jalapeno, chili powder, cumin, paprika and salt, if desired. Make six wells and pour eggs into wells, if desired. Remove from heat.
Bake 20 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolk is cooked to desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle with cilantro. Makes six servings.

Talking about money can enhance a relationship
(BPT) - Thinking about combining finances with your significant other? Whether you're getting married or just thinking about getting serious, talking about money can help couples understand each other and avoid unhappy surprises down the road. Here are five reasons why talking about money can enhance a relationship.
It makes couples happier.
Talking about things like spending, saving and debt may sound business-like and unromantic, but financial experts agree that money is a frequent topic of arguments in many relationships. In fact, according to a survey by the American Psychological Association, almost a third of adults with partners reported that money is a major source of conflict in their relationship.
"What I see when talking with couples is that learning how to resolve money disagreements - and there will be disagreements - helps build important relationship skills," says Daniel Prebish, director of Life Event Services with Wells Fargo Advisors. "Those skills will be valuable both at the beginning of a relationship and likely for a couple's entire time together."
It helps couples connect by understanding what's going on.
Couples should discuss pros and cons of combining finances versus keeping finances separate. According to research by Wells Fargo & Company, about half of couples choose to combine accounts, while the other half prefers separate accounts. Regardless of where you and your significant other fall in this spectrum, both people in a relationship should understand how their financial habits impact - positively or negatively - the life they are building together.
It helps couples track their short and long term financial goals.
Be open with your significant other about your full financial picture. Questions that can help open the door to meaningful conversations include:
1. Are we paying ourselves first?
2. Do we have a safety net?
3. Are we paying all our bills on time, every time?
4. Have we reviewed our insurance needs in the last year?
5. Do we track our spending to know where our money is going every month?
6. Are we paying down high-interest-rate debt first?
7. Do we know where our credit stands?
8. Are we saving for retirement?
It helps couples afford the "extras" that make life fun.
Building a solid financial future shouldn't mean forsaking enjoying life. When couples have a common understanding of how they'll prioritize and manage their day-to-day finances like housing costs, grocery and utility bills, it's easier to figure out where splurges fit in.
It helps avoid financial surprises.
Hearing your friends shout, "happy birthday" is a welcome surprise. What's not welcome is suddenly discovering you can't afford to pay this month's bills or that retirement is farther away than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Being up front about money issues and sharing complete financial information with your significant other helps avoid financial surprises that can add unnecessary stress to a relationship.
While discussing money may not feel romantic, it certainly is emotional. So how do you get started? Here are tips:
1. Admit the conversation can feel awkward, but commit to having it anyway.
2. Pick a mutually agreeable time. Your candle-lit Valentine's dinner may not be the right setting. Pre-arranging the conversation will help ensure both people are mentally prepared.
3. Be open with your significant other. Share your values and opinions about spending and savings habits and goals you would like to achieve together.
4. Work at it. Commit to an annual meeting to talk about money, credit and whether you're on track to achieve your financial goals.
By opening the lines of communication, you can get on the same financial page before joining financial forces.
