    If they, either the Finders Keepers or the FBI, didn't find anything - the FBI wouldn't have brought all the manpower or equipment that they did, and there wouldn't be such a hush about things.

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    From Brandi- To my PCA Force patients, friends and family.... It was a difficult decision to make but this will be my last week at PCA Force. For those of you who I didn’t get to say goodbye to, I want you to know, it has been an honor and privilege serving you as your nurse. You’ve all become family to me and I love you, I will miss you all. Working with Dr. Albanese has been the greatest experience of my life, aside from being Faith’s mom 😉. She has been a great teacher, educator and friend. I also want you all to know that Baby Faith is ok it’s just that she needs my 100% devotion so that we may continue to watch her grow and she can continue to Defy the Odds and Prove that there is Power in Prayer! On the bright side, Pic of the Day shall recommence!

    Ohio Published 10 hours ago Ohio domestic violence victim’s daughter called 911 for ‘pizza,’ signaling they needed help: police By Bradford Betz | Fox News close Video Fox News Flash top headlines for Nov. 21 Fox News Flash top headlines for Nov. 21 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com The daughter of a domestic abuse victim in Ohio helped police put the suspected abuser in handcuffs by calling 911 and pretending to order a pizza, police said Tuesday. The mother’s boyfriend, 56-year-old Simon Lopez, had arrived at the family’s Oregon, Ohio, apartment and began arguing with her, police said. She told police he screamed and allegedly punched her in the arm, causing her to hit a wall. Police say a woman called 911 on an alleged domestic abuser and pretending to be ordering a pizza. (Facebook/@OregonOhioPolice) Keeping the alleged abuser in the dark, the woman’s 38-year-old daughter called the cops. On a recording of the call obtained by WTVG, she is heard telling the dispatcher, “I would like to order a pizza.” “You called 911 to order a pizza?” the dispatcher asks. “Uh, yeah,” she says. “This is the wrong number to call for a pizza,” the dispatcher replies. FLORIDA SHERIFF CALLS WOMAN’S DOMESTIC ABUSE MURDER WORST HE’S EVER SEEN, CALLS FOR LAWS TO CHANGE The daughter tells him “you’re not understanding me,” at which point the dispatcher appears to catch on. He asks her the apartment number and inquires about whether she needs medical assistance. “No,” she says. “With pepperoni.” The dispatcher can then be heard advising responding officers to turn off their lights and sirens as they approach the location. Officers arrived at the apartment and arrested the suspect, WTVG reported. He is charged with domestic violence. Oregon Chief of Police Michael Navarre praised the response of the dispatcher, noting that others “may have hung up.” “He handled the call beautifully and it had a happy ending,” Navarre said. https://www.foxnews.com/us/ohio-domestic-violence-victims-daughter-called-911-for-pizza

    There are a lot of college grads that are not working in their area of study and/or are not directly using their degree. Many of the skills learned required to obtain a degree are readily transferable to seemingly unrelated fields. Research, writing, presentation, analytical, and organizational skills are core skills to many fields. The much maligned Egyptologist, depending on her focus, may have had courses of study in math, chemistry, geology, and biology, among many others. Combining all these knowledge bases and skills could lead to a lucrative career in something not even related to Egypt. She might have to search some and extend her net of job searches, but it can and does happen. There are a lot of careers that require a very diverse set of skills that would never even be considered a major at any college. If you dig around Indeed or other job sites, you will find many job descriptions that make you wonder if anyone on the planet would even come close to having the required skills.

    I'm all for education, whether its 2-year, 4-years and beyond, or apprenticeship programs. It truly is important that folks pursue what they love because they will be working most of their adult lives. At my house, my hubby and I both graduated from 2 year specialized degree programs. Our children have and will have 4-year bachelors degrees. I think its great how a lot of businesses are offering apprenticeship programs. Many jobs today need the specialized skills that can be taught on the job. There are a lot of talented folks who don't need or don't want to attend College.

    "3 figures"? Like a $100? I assume you mean, 6 figures. College, trade school, military, or straight into workforce...different strokes for different folks. I learned that it comes down to having proper direction at a young age and educating yourself on each of the options. Also, I think parents allowing teenagers to avoid getting a job stunts their future. I learned very quickly what I didn't want to become.

    Oh well. Just think of the stories that the kids will tell when they're older. The one I tell is the Halloween of 93, my final year of ToT, it snowed so hard. I slide halfway down Pollock Hill dressed as Freddy Kruger. I got the most candy ever because folks felt bad for us and gave us a few more pieces for the effort.

    I don't disagree with much in your post, but I would point out that it is truly up to the individual what he/she can live on and/or how that individual chooses to live. My magic number for income necessary to live the life I want may be drastically different from yours. Does that make my number not enough or not good? Nope. Success is measured differently. Sacrifices necessary for success are also different from individual to individual. We, as a society, need to stop using our personal measurements as a barometer for our neighbor's.

    With unions, apprenticeships, etc..., the job market is different up there, but I have found myself changing my philosophy on the hiring side of that decision in the last few years. You aren't allowed to discriminate based on age, but you're fooling yourself if you don't think a company looks at an applicant and wonders how many good years they have left in them. Fifteen years ago that tilted the odds in favor of the younger applicants. Now, though, experienced trade workers, especially mechanics, can demand top dollar no matter what their age. It's like an NFL team buying a marquee quarterback for a few years just to win a championship. He might not be around forever, but great things may happen while he's there. We can bring in an older, more experienced mechanic, operator, whatever, and in the 5-15 years they have left they can help train the younger guys we have on site. With the HR policies of some companies, a finite employment window isn't necessarily a bad thing, either. Say you hire a 20 or 30 something that does just barely enough to get by, you could replace them with someone much better, but they aren't so bad that HR will give you permission to let them go. I'd take a 57 year old with experience over that any day. That's why there is so much money in skilled trades now

    Speaking of regional dairys, who remembers back when Sani-Dairy in Johnstown was part of the Penn Traffic family of brands? Dean Dairy acquired Sani-Dairy and shut them down within a year or so. I wonder if there are people in Johnstown dancing in the streets now that Dean's is declaring bankruptcy?

    And awaaayyy we go

    I'm very surprised by PSU's performance this year. Honestly, I'm still surprised they've already recovered from, you know... It says a lot for the tradition of the University, that they are able to recruit good players just because they are Penn State. I certainly didn't expect them to be 8-0 at this point in the season, and even if they don't beat OSU this year, they are obviously building a durable program. That's good for college football as a whole. As big a fan as I am of the SEC, I want to see good competition out of conference and in the post season. That consistent competition is coming from the Big 10. Now y'all knock off OSU, we'll work on Bama

    All this candy talk with Halloween approaching reminds me of a cute story my niece told me over dinner awhile back. She brought home a bag of Snickers "Fun Size" to pass out on Halloween. She told her husband not to eat any since it was for the trick or treaters. About a week later her husband confessed to opening a small hole in the corner of the bag and was sneaking from it. My niece told him "No you didn't. I tore a hole in the corner and was taking some." They went over to the bag to find two holes in opposite corners of the bag where both were stealing treats. Sneaky Snickers seekers. Say that three times with a mouthful of caramel and nougat. I'll tell my wife to pretend it's Easter just before Halloween and hide the candy. I don't want to know it's in the house.

    Firefighter dad dies after rescuing baby and crew members from burning home A father of three, Jason Menard is being hailed a hero. Nov. 13, 2019, 1:47 PM EST / Source: TODAY By Rachel Paula Abrahamson Fire lieutenant Jason Menard and his family were looking forward to their vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth. Instead, tragedy struck. Menard, 39, was killed after he battled a four-alarm blaze in Worcester, Massachusetts, early Wednesday morning. The father of three and his wife, Tina, were scheduled to leave for Walt Disney World following his shift. "Jason and Tina had been together since high school," Menard's friend Mark Senior Jr. told TODAY Parents. "They were inseparable. Tina and the kids were Jason's whole life." Menard became trapped by heavy flames while searching for a woman and a baby in a three-story home, Worcester Fire Chief Michael Lavoie said. “Lt. Menard heroically and selflessly saved his crew, helping a probationary firefighter to the stairs and then returning to rescue another firefighter, assisting him out the window,” Lavoie told reporters on Wednesday. “Fire conditions overtook the third floor at this time and Lt. Menard was unable to escape.” Menard and three other firefighters were taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center.Two have been released and one remains in serious but stable condition. Lt. Jason Menard, a father of three from Worcester, Massachusetts, was killed as he battled a four-alarm fire.Christine Peterson / AP According to officials, the baby was unharmed, while the female resident was transported to the emergency room with serious injuries. Lavoie described Menard as a “passionate firefighter” with unwavering dedication to the community that he protected. Governor Charlie Baker extended his “deepest and sincerest” condolences to the Menard family. “You can’t say this enough, first responders wake up every morning, answer every call, never knowing what surprise may be in store them and knowing full well they might be putting their lives on the line for the sake of others,” Baker said. “It’s because of brave men and women like Lt. Menard and his team that we all rest easy at night. We must always be eternally grateful for their service and their sacrifice.” SEE VIDEO REPORT ; https://www.today.com/parents/firefighter-jason-menard-dies-after-rescuing-baby-crew-t167110?cid=referral_taboolafeed

    Advising anyone today on a career path would be extremely challenging. the general push for getting a college education is overwhelming and not always good for many people. Finding a career and preparing for it are things that we need to understand better for the future. The ease of automating jobs out of existence is far greater every year. Those moves by employers reduce the need for lower skilled worker to the point that those folks will struggle in dead end jobs unless they adapt to the changes quickly. It is easy to outsource many existing jobs to other place where the costs are significantly lower for production of goods. Today even services are outsourced. Try to get computer help from someone based in the US. Find a career that can't be outsourced or automated easily and you might have a 30-50 year career would be good advice. Whatever it takes to get that is a pathway to lifetime success in my opinion.
