  4. What has "happened" is the influence of the media that affects the way you think about them...…..the vast, vast, majority of priests are still all those things, unless you dwell on the stuff that is thrown at you in the various media...…...I, for one, do not stereotype.....
  5. Dressbarn is going out of business, will shut down all 650 stores No timeline was provided as the women's retailer starts a "wind-down of its retail operations," the company said in a statement. May 21, 2019, 8:27 AM EDT / Source: TODAY By Eun Kyung Kim The Dressbarn clothing chain will wind down operations as part of a larger plan to close all of its stores, the company has announced. No timeline was given for the closure of its approximately 650 locations, but the women’s retailer will remain open for business for the time being, along with its website, the company said in a statement. There will be no changes to the company’s return, refund, or gift-card policies or its loyalty-rewards programs. Dressbarn stores have failed to operate "at an acceptable level of profitability in today's retail environment," the company said in a statement.Getty Images “This decision was difficult, but necessary, as the Dressbarn chain has not been operating at an acceptable level of profitability in today’s retail environment,” Steven Taylor, the company’s chief financial officer, said in the statement. “During the wind down process, we will continue to provide our customers with the same great experience both in-store and online, offering them even better deals and value,” he continued. “We will work to assist our associates through the transition and maintain existing relationships with our vendors, suppliers, and other key stakeholders through this process. Ascena Retail Group, Dressbarn’s parent company, said the decision to shut down operations will have no impact on the operations of its other brands, which include Ann Taylor, Lane Bryant, Catherines and Justice. “Dressbarn’s wind down is another significant step taken to advance Ascena’s ongoing transformation,” it said in a separate statement. “This move is in line with the Company’s commitment to comprehensively assess and optimize its portfolio by focusing resources on its most profitable brands to position the business for long-term growth and enhance shareholder value.” Video Will Begin In... 3 Payless to close all 2,100 stores Feb. 16, 201900:3O Dressbarn’s news is the latest among a string of closures announced this year for brick-and-mortar stores that used to be shopping mall staples. In February, Payless ShoeSource said it had started its liquidation process in anticipation of closing all 2,100 of its U.S. stores. The news came shortly after Charlotte Russe, a clothing store aimed at teens and young adults, announced it would shutter all of its 500 locations. And while not closing shop, Victoria’s Secret’s parent company, L Brands Inc., said earlier this year it would close 53 of its 1,143 Victoria’s Secret and Pink stores. The downsizing reflects an era when physical store outlets find themselves scrambling to compete against internet sales and big-box stores such as Target and Walmart. https://www.today.com/style/dressbarn-going-out-business-will-shut-down-all-650-stores-t154519
  6. Awww....(literally & figuratively) so sweet! Congrats to them on 79 years together!
  7. Couple credits love of chocolate as the secret to their 79-year marriage After nearly 80 years together, Curtis and Virginia Peters are still very much in love ... with each other and with chocolate. May 21, 2019, 4:53 PM EDT / Source: TODAY By Erica Chayes Wida It's hard to say exactly what keeps two people happily married for decades. But for one couple, their own sweet secret might just boil (or melt) down to chocolate. For as long as Susan Peters Cathoir can remember, her parents, Curtis and Virginia Peters, have loved Hershey's chocolate, especially the bars. As the fourth-born of the Peters' five children (now aged 77 through 65), Cathoir still remembers how the classic candy was always a staple in their home because her parents simply couldn't get enough. "They love the Hershey's. It melts in their mouth just the way want it," Cathoir told TODAY Food. Curtis and Virginia Peters married in 1940. On Saturday, now 100 and 103, they celebrated their 79th wedding anniversary.Susan Peters Cathoir Curtis, 100, and Virginia, 103, first met at the University of Northern Iowa (then Iowa State Teachers College) during World War II. In 1940, they married, began having children, and ran a printing shop together. The shop, a truly family-owned business, was even connected to their home in Waterloo, Iowa. The couple, according to Cathoir, always shared everything — and that included the Hershey's chocolate bars they enjoyed almost every day. Throughout their lives, the couple always kept plenty of Hershey's chocolate in the house. Cathoir recalled there were Kisses in candy bowls and plenty of bars in the kitchen. Her parents would even melt Hershey's bars for everyone to dip their ice cream into. In the late 1950s, the couple even treated themselves — and their kids — to a dream vacation: they packed up the family and took a bus from Iowa to Hershey, Pennsylvania, to see where and how their favorite candy was made in Hersheypark. The Peters are still happily married after 79 years and share everything.Teresa (Cathoir) Hamann Curtis and Virginia, who moved from Iowa to a nursing home in Geneseo, Illinois, to be closer to Cathoir, are still enjoying their daily ritual of a shared chocolate bar. Knowing how much their parents loved Hershey's, their kids began bringing plenty of chocolate with them on their visits so Curtis and Virginia can enjoy a piece whenever they like. "I keep a pack in the freezer and go and give them one every day. I always leave chocolate in their drawer so in case I can't make it or I'm late, one of the [nurses] can make sure they still get it," Cathoir told TODAY. Curtis Peters, now 100-years-old, in the Army as a young man.Susan Peters Cathoir According to their daughter, Curtis will open the bar and break off a piece for his wife, or sometimes a nurse will feed a bite to each of them. "Hershey's chocolate just keeps him alive, and he keeps her alive," Cathoir added. "He shares it with her all the time — he shares everything with her and she with him. When he drinks something, he shares it." A joint fondness for Hershey's is one thing that's always kept the Peters together, but it's certainly not the only special bond they share. "They pray a lot and they love. It's just pretty special," Cathoir said, adding that her parents have always been affectionate towards each other. The Peters at their 79th Wedding Anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 18.Teresa (Cathoir) Hamann On Saturday, Curtis and Virginia celebrated their 79th wedding anniversary. They were surrounded by family and everyone enjoyed a couple Hershey's chocolate bars. "Mr. and Mrs. Peters are a true testament to living a life full of love and warmth, together, for nearly 80 years. We are honored to learn that they choose to share Hershey’s chocolate to have a heartwarming connection each and every day of their lives," Hershey's brand senior director Ian Norton told TODAY. A Hershey spokesperson said the company will soon be sending the Peters a "very special anniversary gift," full of their favorite goodies. Said Cathoir of her parents' sweet sharing ritual, "They just love each other very much. They always share, and they taught us [the children] to do the same." https://www.today.com/food/couple-credits-love-chocolate-secret-their-79-year-marriage-t154472
  8. Beers and Mollica take the win according to Clearfield County website.
  9. Other humans would never know for sure, but God will. Priests used to be synonymous with faith, duty and discipline, but look at what has happened. It's sad.
  10. My hubby said we are supposed to be getting a BK in St Mary's again and a Duncan Donuts. Thats just thru word of mouth but I hope BK is true.
  11. I really hope so! Maybe I was fed lies, hahah, who knows! Like you said though, I guess we will see. I hope I don't regret it!
  12. See, here you are, already making disparaging comments that you'll have to try to distance yourself from in the near future.
  13. Perhaps his views differ from previous family members. I guess we'll see.
  14. They are starting to come in now!
  15. From what I know about him he is pro things that I am for, so he for sure had my vote!
  16. My brother in Naples told me how the Protestant churches down there breathed a sigh of relief that the focus will be on the Cath. church, not them...….they have the same issues, but are much less a target....
  17. no deflection. Everyone talks big on morality, until they examine their OWN actions and speech...………...hypocrisy.
  18. most priests do not break their vows, so you will need to speak for yourself on that one...………….there is such a thing as faith , duty, discipline, etc....
  19. ...and for the networks----they'll make billions again with that clown in the WH...…...why do you think they helped him with all that free coverage during the campaign ?? The news networks, in public, admitted they were wrong to cover him so much and drown out HRC's message, but they said they could not resist the money.....
  20. I don't know about Mollica but, if you're looking to break the old-school thinking in Sandy Twp., you should be hoping for someone other than Beers. He's a legacy to the days and thinking that you're trying to get away from.
  21. They should start posting them shortly. I'm not sure what time they will have them up but this is the link for Clearfield County. http://www.clearfieldco.org/election-results/
  22. The boss is always getting on me about when I'm getting hearing aids. Too many years of construction, rock & roll, and race cars!
  23. Yesterday
  24. When will the election results start coming in? Fingers crossed and many prayers that Beers and Mollica get on board!
  25. That is exactly who my family, friends. and I voted for!
