Central Pennsylvania to find great merchandise for every person on your gift list.

and entrepreneurs have set up online stores.

Food Truck Takeover

The standard fast-food restaurants may not be fast enough anymore compared to the convenience of walking up to a food truck and getting your meal made-to-order. And the freshness and originality of these trucks are sure to beat out your typical double cheeseburger and fries from a dollar menu at a drive through.

When the work day is over, most of us turn off the part of our brains that handle our daily work tasks and don’t think about it again until the next morning. For chefs, this is not the case since food is a constant in all of our lives. So what do the exhausted head chefs of some of the midstate’s favorite eateries cook at home? Do they cook at all outside of the restaurant? How did they get their start in the culinary industry, what is their favorite food memory and do the chefs have a sweet tooth?

The phrase can mean many things to many people, but to this year’s Savvy, Active, Growing, Enlightened honorees, it means seeing a need and addressing it.

Knowing the Person, Not the Disease

t’s not easy watching a loved one grow older, but that process is exacerbated when that family member has dementia. There are often misconceptions about dementia and its close relative, Alzheimer’s disease. Knowing the facts facilitates the transition into an assisted-living facility, such as Brookdale Senior Living of Harrisburg. It allows family members to still be a part of a loved one’s life, without the pressure of caregiving alone.

Despite a torrent of articles in popular magazines like Money and innumerable financial websites and even entire networks like CNBC devoted to money matters, Americans’ knowledge of the subject remains abysmal. In a 2016 survey reported on Fortune’s website, nearly two-thirds of more than 27,000 respondents surveyed couldn’t produce at least four correct answers on a simple five question test of financial literacy.

Nearly everyone is familiar with the celebrated Hollywood Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Los Angeles. Populated with seemingly countless stars imprinted in the sidewalk representing the famous, and sometimes infamous, those sidewalks are a testament to celebrity.

One team rarely has made such a structural change during its storied history. The other has embraced change as a constant, although that change neither has been good on the field nor profitable at the box office.
