today’s news and information gleanings from here and there! 

Quote for today“A library book … is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, is their only capital.” – Thomas Jefferson

  • Wonder which “organizations” really are legally registered as “non-profit?” Check back here tomorrow.
  • An Easter Bunny breakfast! “A pancake breakfast with the Easter Bunny will be held 7:30-10 a.m. Saturday, April 7, at St. John’s Community Church, 239 E. Market St., Marietta. Cost is $3 for adults and $1.50 for children ages 5-12. Easter egg coloring will be held at 10 a.m.” – Lancaster Sunday News
  • “In the appropriations bill for 2012, funding for the Women, Infants and Children Farmers Market Nutrition Program (WIC FMNP) was cut by approximately 30 percent. WIC’s FMNP helps provide underserved families across the country with fresh produce, and is not only a critical subsidy for families that might not otherwise have sufficient access to high-quality, nutritious food, but also for the small and mid-scale farmers and farmers markets that operate in low-income communities and rely on WIC’s FMNP dollars as a major source of revenue. By some estimates the 30 percent cut will decrease benefits for 300,000 families.” – New York Times blog
