Salvation Army Celebrity Fundraiser
The Salvation Army of East Stroudsburg is hosting its Celebrity fundraising dinner at the Citadel Headquarters on Tuesday March 21, 2017 beginning at 5:30 pm.
The five-course feast will be prepared by renowned chefs Nicola Mersini of Momento Pizzeria & Restaurant, Andrew Moore from The Stone Bar Inn and Tom Farda from Peppe’s Bistro. There will also be a live pasta demonstration with pasta to purchase. Seats are $75 per person.
Major James Gingrich, Commanding Officer of the East Stroudsburg Corps comments, “This is the sixth year for this event which was created to help raise awareness of hunger in Monroe County. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Corps and will directly be used to feed County residents. We are fortunate to have these three very accomplished Chefs willing to donate their time and talent for this event.”
The Salvation Army, and its many partners, work tirelessly to feed the hungry throughout Monroe County. The Salvation Army offers local programs such as food baskets, hot meals, nights of shelter, rental assistance, and clothing, Christmas toys for children, nursing home visitation, and disaster service response.
These programs are directly funded by community support and giving through donations and events. Gingrich said, “We are more determined than ever to help our neighbors bridge the gap between their resources and the cost of acquiring basic human needs.
This event is one way we can raise money to achieve that goal.” He concludes, “This is a great event that features the exceptional culinary talents of three renowned chefs and provides attendees the opportunity to see the Citadel.” To sign up for the dinner call The Salvation Army at (570) 421-3050.

Live Eagle Nest Cam
By clicking on the photo you can see and hear activity at an eagle nest - live.
Season three began December 28 at the Hanover nest. The cameras and audio equipment installed for the 2016 season continue to provide excellent views and audio of this eagle family.
The live stream began December 17, 2016 shortly after the installation of two new cameras and audio equipment. Eggs were laid on February 18 and 21. March 28 one of the eggs hatched; the nestling died two days later, perhaps injured by a branch being moved in the nest. The other egg never hatched and remained n the nest until May 23 when one of the adults removed the remnants from the nest.
Hanover is located in south-central PA about five miles from the Mason-Dixon line.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY - March 15
Johnson calls for equal voting rights - 1965
On this day in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson addressed a joint session of Congress to urge the passage of legislation guaranteeing voting rights for all.Using the phrase “we shall overcome,” borrowed from African-American leaders struggling for equal rights, Johnson declared that “every American citizen must have an equal right to vote.” Johnson reminded the nation that the Fifteenth Amendment, which was passed after the Civil War, gave all citizens the right to vote regardless of race or color. But states had defied the Constitution and erected barriers. Discrimination had taken the form of literacy, knowledge or character tests administered solely to African-Americans to keep them from registering to vote.
On August 6, 1965, Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, which made it illegal to impose restrictions on federal, state and local elections that were designed to deny the vote to blacks.
While state and local enforcement of the act was initially weak, mainly in the South, the Voting Rights Act gave African-American voters the legal means to challenge voting restrictions and vastly improved voter turnout. In Mississippi alone, voter turnout among blacks increased from 6 percent in 1964 to 59 percent in 1969.
In 1970, President Richard Nixon extended the provisions of the Voting Rights Act and lowered the eligible voting age for all voters to 18.

More than 500 Chinese family members gather for photo
(UPI) -- More than 500 people with the same ancestors gathered together in China for a massive family photo. The group made up of members of the Ren family gathered at Shishe village in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang to celebrate the completion of the family tree.
The photo was taken with a drone during the Lunar New Year period after elders updated family tree records and located 2,000 living relatives.
"It took us two and a half years to complete the new family tree," Village Chief Ren Tuanjie said. "During the Spring Festival, we like to bring all the family members together so as to let our ancestors know where they are."
Members of the family from multiple generations traveled from Beijing, Shanghai, Xinjiang and Taiwan to take part in the giant reunion.
"One reason was to understand where our descendants have spread to, where they have ended up and where they live, to account to our ancestors," Tuanjie said. "And another reason was also to let descendants all over the country know their roots, so that wherever they go they will not forget where they come from."
5 reasons ride-sharing is on the rise
(BPT) - The rideshare industry has exploded in popularity over the past several years, with companies devoted to making transportation safe, reliable and enjoyable. At the swipe of a finger and tap of a button, you can hail a car through your smartphone. Within minutes, you are picked up at your desired location and whisked off to your final destination, whether it's the grocery store, movie theater or the hottest restaurant in town.
Here are five reasons why millions of Americans are requesting a ride every day:
1. Owning and maintaining a car is expensive. At more than $9,000 per year, per household, a car is the second most expensive purchase Americans make, yet the average car in the U.S. gets only 4 percent utilization per day. The rideshare industry was born from the idea that by pairing drivers and passengers headed in the same general direction, not only is traffic significantly reduced, but car ownership ultimately becomes optional when you know you have a ride you can rely on.
2. It's a safe way to get around. While pairing drivers and passengers who don't know each other might seem unorthodox, thanks to stringent background checks, car safety checks and real-time ride tracking, hopping in an on-demand ride has become commonplace for people across the country. In fact, Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare service, currently covers 55 percent of the U.S. population, meaning 177 million people are able to request a safe, reliable ride every day. By the end of 2017, that number will increase to 231 million, or 72 percent of the country.
3. Ridesharing promotes community and economic growth. Not only is it an efficient way to get from point A to point B, ridesharing connects both people and communities. In 2016 alone, more than 162.5 million Lyft rides were taken. This opens the door for people who wouldn't normally cross paths to share a car together. Drivers get to drop off passengers in neighborhoods they might not regularly venture to, and business owners serve customers that previously didn't have easy access to their location. Ridesharing is a powerful driver of economic growth, encouraging local spending and pumping money back into the enrichment of neighborhoods.
4. As a driver, ridesharing provides an excellent source of income. Be it primary or supplementary, driving provides flexibility and allows people to own their schedules, clocking in and out when they want, where they want. From coast to coast, teachers, retirees, aspiring musicians and everyone in between is using ridesharing as a source of income. Lyft is the only platform that allows passengers to tip, with more than $150 million dollars going directly into the pockets of their drivers.
5. On-demand transportation is proven to reduce drunk driving. According to a recent study, 88 percent of passengers say they are more likely to avoid driving while impaired because of Lyft, and 53 percent of passengers use the platform to safely get friends and family home who are intoxicated. One tap of a button ultimately leads to saving lives by reducing the number of intoxicated drivers on the road.
Whether you're a passenger or driver, ridesharing seeks to get you where you want to go, be it a final destination or a financial goal. Local communities deserve friendly, safe transportation they can rely on, and the rideshare industry is close to making that a reality for all people.
Tackle your DIY project with these 3 multipurpose tools
(BPT) - DIY projects are surging in popularity right now and it’s easy to see why. A successful DIY project can fix a problem or make a much-needed improvement to your home, while also providing you with the satisfaction of a job well done. Best of all, it allows you to save money over hiring a professional contractor to do the work.
But is it possible to conquer several DIY projects in a short period of time? Sure, you just need the right multipurpose tools for the job. Below are three tools you can pick up at any hardware store, and each will allow you to tackle a slew of projects with just one purchase, making each tool the perfect project time saver.
Add these three multipurpose tools to your lineup today:
Multipurpose tool 1: Stain
A staining project is an easy, cost-effective way to completely recreate a look in your home. You may purchase one color of stain or several, depending on how many staining projects you plan to do and the proximity of your projects in your home. When you purchase your stain, you can use it to:
* Stain your front door. Your front door is a focal point in your home and staining it gives the face of your home a completely new look.
* Stain your wood floors. Darker floors are growing in popularity and a fresh coat of stain can give your home that look without an expensive replacement.
* Stain a table or other piece of furniture. Whether you want it to be an accent piece in your room or you'd like it to match your new décor, a fresh coat of stain saves you from having to replace a cherished piece.
Multipurpose tool 2: GREAT STUFF(TM) Multipurpose Black Insulating Foam Sealant
Sealing the gaps and cracks around your home will save you money by making your home more energy efficient, while also increasing your home’s comfort. In fact, one can of GREAT STUFF(TM) has a multitude of uses in and around the home, including:
* Seal gaps and cracks around attic doors. This will prevent your home’s heat from escaping during the winter and will better control the temperature in your home.
* Seal areas around vents and duct work. In addition to helping better regulate the temperature in your home, these projects can also ward off pests and vermin that are looking for warmer temperatures inside.
* Tackle other jobs as well. The capabilities of GREAT STUFF™ Multipurpose Black Insulating Foam Sealant apply to projects outside the home as well, so whether you have a project in mind or one arises along your journey, it’s always handy to have a can on hand.
Multipurpose tool 3: Degreaser
If you have a heavy duty cleaning project to tackle in your home, a good degreaser can help. Degreasers dissolve water-insoluble substances and they can help you:
* Clean stainless steel and appliances. Grease and oil collect naturally in any kitchen and their particles can linger on kitchen equipment. Applying degreaser can remove them quickly and cleanly.
* Remove adhesives. Whether the sticker was supposed to go there, it was an accident or the subject of child’s whim, applying degreaser can clean the spot good as new.
* Eliminate heavy buildup around bike chains and engine parts. Buildup is a natural product of use, but it also jeopardizes efficiency. Apply degreaser to these areas to have your favorite objects running like new.
Your mind is already full of DIY projects you’d love to tackle, you just need to find the time to do them. Efficiency is key and the more projects you can tackle with one tool the better. Add these tools to your next home goods trip and you’ll have your DIY project start off on the right foot. To find more projects you can tackle with GREAT STUFF(TM) Multipurpose Black Insulating Foam Sealant, visit greatstuff.dow.com.
