Penn State Wilkes-Barre recently presented a donation of $350 to Victim’s Resource Center of Carbon, Luzerne, and Wyoming Counties. Victims Resource Center provides a comprehensive range of services to meet the special needs of crime victims, to address issues of violence on an individual and community level and to increase the understanding of the impact of crime on victims to improve their quality of care including, but not limited to: advocacy, education programs, 24 hour hotlines, support groups, and crisis intervention. Victim’s Resource Center holds several educational outreach sessions on campus each year for students. Funds for the donation were raised through dress down Fridays held for Penn State Wilkes-Barre faculty and staff throughout the spring semester. Participants paid $2 to wear jeans and funds were voted upon for donation.

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
