CYBER ALERT: K-12 Distance Learning Education Being Targeted by Cyber Actors

Original release date: December 10, 2020 This Joint Cybersecurity Advisory was coauthored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).

Ronald Shurer Fifteen months after he stood at the White House to receive the nation's highest combat honor, he's squaring off in an all-consuming battle against life-threatening lung cancer that his doctors rate at stage 4, meaning it has metastasized or spread to other organs.

Susan P Burton, of Oaklyn, Accomplished Musician, Pianist

Home is where your treasure is. There, your heart will be also. Susan P. Burton (nee Watkins) was in fact a “homebody”. She was welcoming, compassionate and would talk with ya, but was opinionated.

American Legion provides over $1.1 million in grants to veteran families

The American Legion In January 2019, The American Legion’s Temporary Financial Assistance (TFA) program broke a single-month record in grant distribution – $1,030,163. Of the grants distributed, $1,000,500 assisted children of active duty Coast Guard servicemembers who were financially affected by the federal government shutdown. The government shutdown created a critical need of monetary assistance for active-duty U.S. Coast Guardsmen. And The American Legion answered their call for help by providing immediate financial support through the TFA program. But the financial need for veterans and their families across the country was still there long after the government reopened. Subject to an audit, so far 2019 numbers for TFA show that $1,143,000 was provided in cash grants that assisted over 3,000 children of nearly 1,700 veteran... Read more →

Unfortunately, there is another side to the holidays. The pressures of everyday life, relationships, difficult financial situations, even the change in seasons can lead people to dark places mentally. In some of the worst-case situations, people are overwhelmed and desperate and may have suicidal thoughts or even act on those thoughts. It’s important to understand the “why” of suicide, if we hope to prevent it. When people hear a tragic story of a person inflicting insult to themselves resulting in... Read more →
