We had lots of people come out and help us sort out the donations and get everything up on hangers to be put away and ready, so when kids come into foster care and foster parents or case workers need items we can get to them super fast. This is probably one of the hardest parts, sorting through donations and getting them into the right spots, and putting them on hangers. So this is a blessing if anybody has time to come out and help us sort we appreciate that,” McGee said.The Foster Closet recently received a donation by the DaVita Alpena Dialysis Center, and the Northern Collision and Auto Repair.There will be another sorting day on Saturday, February 11th from 10 am until 3 pm.If you would like to help that weekend, the Foster Closet is located right beside Thunder Bowl Lanes.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Foster Closet, Foster Closet of Michigan Alpena Branch, Sorting Day, Volunteer, Volunteer ServiceContinue ReadingPrevious Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary Awarded Major GrantNext Ladies Across the State of Michigan Compete in the Miss Sunrise Side and Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen Pageant

RUMSON – “I wanted to express my deep and sincere appreciation for sending all of the care packages … particularly given how difficult the last couple of months have been for all of you with Hurricane Sandy. Care Packages help so much to keep that connection with our friends, family, and communities back home and remind us of how selfless our neighbors are.”That was the sentiment expressed in a letter written by Lt. Cdmr. Brendan Piccolo of the U.S. Navy and addressed to Rumson-Fair Haven High School and the Long Branch Housing Authority. Piccolo, stationed at Bagram Airfield in Northeastern Afghanistan, is one of the officers who received much-needed items and distributed them to troops as the result of a recent Care Package Drive.The Character Education Club at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School has been organizing the Care Package Drive for the past few years. This year the students wanted to “raise the bar” and send a record-high number of items to U.S. troops in Afghanistan. They accomplished this goal by partnering with students from the Evolve Education Program of the Long Branch Housing Authority.Their efforts began in October when the RFH group asked fellow students and community members to donate troop-requested items such as energy drinks, instant coffee, gum, candy, DVDs, magazines, books, and more. Toys also were dropped off for distribution to children in the region.Once collection was complete, the RFH club teamed up with students from Evolve in Long Branch to sort, pack and ship the items. They worked under the guidance of RFH Character Education Advisor Jason Lippart and Evolve Director Theodore Drakeford. The collaborative effort, the first of its kind between the two groups, resulted in the delivery of 56 packages containing the comforts of home.In the letter Piccolo expressed his surprise. “I may have set a record for the number of packages received in one day, and have dutifully shared with the staff in this headquarters,” he said. “I speak for all of them when I say thank you so much for thinking of us.”A military reservist, Piccolo will return to his civilian job in Maryland when he arrives home in mid-January to his wife Amy and their two daughters, ages 2 and 4. Although he resides in Washington, D.C., he has strong ties to the shore area with family members residing in Belmar, Sea Girt and Spring Lake.“I was truly inspired by the hard work and generosity displayed by the students and community members who helped make the Care Package Drive so successful,” noted Lippart. “The willingness of people to pull together for a common cause, even in times of personal strife and hardship, really helps kick the holiday spirit into overdrive.”

Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Thursday said days are not far off when it will be possible to unfurl the tricolour in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). “I have faith that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the way New India’s caravan is progressing ahead, that day is not far off when it will be possible to unfurl that tricolour or ‘Nishan’ for which Shyama Prasad Mukherj sacrificed his life in Pakistan occupied Kashmir,” Mr. Singh said at an event to rename Chenani-Nashri Tunnel in Jammu & Kashmir.Mr. Singh, credited Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari for accepting the proposal of renaming the tunnel after Shyama Prasad Mukherjee without wasting time. In 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had dedicated to the nation this 9 km-long tunnel that reduces the distance between Jammu and Srinagar by 31 km but due to “some compulsions” this could not be named after Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, he said. He further noted that 66 years ago on May 11, 1953, Mukherjee was arrested from Lakhanpur in an illegal manner without any FIR, chargesheet or warning and was taken to Srinagar through this Chenani-Nashri road. After Mukherjee’s death on June 23, 1953 his mother wrote to then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to hold an enquiry into his death. “For some reasons then Prime Minister Nehru did not pay heed to that letter, no enquiry was done. It is a new era now. It was Nehru government then, today it is Modi government… That probe or lapse can not be compensated but this tribute for coming generation will preserve his heritage and memory. “The lapse on part of Nehru government has been atoned by Modi government,” he said. The decision to rename the tunnel comes over two months after abrogation of the provisions of Article 370. The ‘Chenani-Nashri Tunnel’ was built at the cost of ₹2,600 crore. The tunnel, bypassing snow-bound upper reaches, reduces the journey time by two hours and provide a safe, all-weather route to commuters travelling from Jammu and Udhampur to Ramban, Banihal and Srinagar. The key features of the tunnel are — it is a single-tube bi-directional tunnel, with a 9.35-metre carriageway, and a vertical clearance of 5 metres. There is also a parallel escape tunnel, with ‘Cross Passages’ connecting to the main tunnel at intervals of 300 metres. It also has smart features such as an integrated traffic control system; surveillance, ventilation and broadcast systems; fire fighting system; and SOS call-boxes at every 150 metres.

It’s also the story of Utah, which might get in the mix to host a Winter Olympics in 2026 or 2030.The chairman of the LA bid was in Park City on Tuesday for the U.S. Olympic Committee media summit to discuss Los Angeles’ recent victory; many of the questions he fielded, though, involved whether a U.S. bid for an upcoming Winter Games might make sense, too.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Twenty-six is complicated, obviously,” Casey Wasserman said. “Obviously, there are real challenges from a timing perspective, two years before us. But I think our approach has been, the Olympic Games, whether summer or winter, are good for American athletes. Our intent is to be a good partner to the USOC and American athletes.”The USOC board will meet next month to discuss the possibility. The same country hasn’t hosted back-to-back Olympics since before World War II, though when the International Olympic Committee scrapped its traditional rules and awarded 2024 (Paris) and 2028 (LA) at the same time, it indicated it was certainly open to new ideas. Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002, and what remains there and in Park City pretty much adheres to Agenda 2020, the blueprint that IOC President Thomas Bach set for future Olympics, which calls for less spending on new venues and infrastructure.Through a legacy foundation, the area has maintained an Olympic speedskating oval and a Nordic skiing course, each of which have drawn local athletes to their respective sports and could be used as part of an upcoming bid. The Utah Olympic Park remains an active training ground for action sports, for both U.S. athletes and those from other countries who are invited to work out there.Meanwhile, Utah likes the Olympics: NBC says Salt Lake City has ranked as either No. 1 or 2 among U.S. TV markets over the last three Winter Games.Leaders of the movement to bring the games back to Utah have largely stayed quiet, not wanting to take the limelight from Los Angeles, which helped the U.S. put a stop to a long string of embarrassing losses on the Olympic bid front. But a handful have told The Associated Press that there is enthusiasm for a potential bid if the USOC will sign on.“There’s fantastic momentum to have the Games come back. I think we could do it for a very affordable price compared to the rest of the world,” said Ted Morris, the executive director of U.S. Speedskating, which is based in the Salt Lake City area. “In my opinion, looking at ’26 is probably not realistic, but ’30 seems like an opportunity.”ADVERTISEMENT Read Next LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients The most complicating factor for either year would be a reworking of an agreement between LA and the USOC that transfers the USOC’s marketing rights to the city’s organizing committee over an eight-year span. Adding another American Olympics to that mix would force some major renegotiations.There’s also the issue of the IOC bid process. Bach has redrawn the rules for 2026, creating friendlier deadlines for cities to commit to a bid. But he has not committed to a potential double award for 2026 and 2030, the way he did with 2024 and 2028.Also, the USOC will have to consider Denver and Reno, Nevada, which also have expressed interest in hosting a Winter Games but would be behind the curve compared with Salt Lake City.“Thomas Bach has publicly stated he’d like to see the Winter Games return to a more traditional location, and to me, that’s code for Europe or North America,” said USOC chairman Larry Probst, speaking to the fact that the hosts for 2014, 2018 and 2022 are Russia, South Korea and China. “We’ve got to look at that, then develop a strategy about whether we’re going to bid for the (2026) Winter Games or beyond that.” MOST READ FILE – In this Feb. 9, 2002, file photo, Georg Hackl, of Germany, speeds past an Olympic logo during a practice run for the men’s singles luge at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in Park City, Utah.
