Today is National Doughnut Day, a special occasion for those with a sweet tooth. But this day is more than just a marketing scheme invented by coffee shops.

This "food holiday" dates all the way back to 1938. A branch of the Salvation Army in Chicago began making doughnuts to send overseas to soldiers serving in World War I as a way to boost morale and let them know there were people at home thinking of them.

The tradition was picked up again during World War II, and was so popular that it spawned the slogan, "donuts will win the war!"

So perhaps today, as you're sinking your teeth into one of these delicious treats, you

The Mount Manresa complex, the former Jesuit Retreat located in Fort Wadsworth, was constructed in the 1920s. Recently, the site has suffered partial demolition, causing unsafe conditions for island residents. Apparently, the demolition company who began the process initially submitted fraudulent reports. What they failed to make clear is that this old structure contains Asbestos, and further destruction will cause air pollution and put residents at risk for exposure. So far, at least 8 nearby residents have complained of health problems due to the

The American Bald Eagle is the national animal of the United States. The extent of its majestic presence can only be understood by those who have seen one soar before their eyes.

In the early 90’s, the bird was at risk for extinction, prompting environmentalists to ban DDT, a harmful chemical in pesticides that was stunting the population. Since 2007, the birds have been removed from the “protected” list and have even been seen on Staten Island!

Local bird watchers recently spoke with the Staten Island Advance and recalled the areas in which the Bald Eagles were
