In this episode of Inside the Path to Success, we had an awesome conversation Nic & Steve Servis, owners of Servis Events. This was a ton of fun, and we got into everything from food, to business, to farm life, and everything in-between. We hope you enjoy!"Servis Events is made up of identical twin brothers Nicolas and Stephen Servis. They have been cooking in the Bucks County area for over ten years now, and after being forced to leave their restaurant jobs due to COVID, they came up with this private dining service. Their education started at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology where we were both enrolled in the Culinary Arts program. After completion, they went on to get our associates degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Bucks County Community College. The rest was taught in the kitchen. They both truly became deeply interested in the farm-to-table world when holding chef de partie positions at The Mainland Inn. Yes, they have worked in a lot of the same restaurants! They did full animal butchery, gardening, growing under lights, tapping maple trees for syrup, raising bees and spinning the honey, making our own hot sauces & vinegars, foraging for garnish and such. They were in our own little heaven of a restaurant. When volunteering at Quarry Hill Farm, Stephen was told about the WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) program. A pitch that said you could travel for free, as long as you offer your work to the farmers in exchange for housing and meals. Well, five years later, the time was just right and they spent 2 months on Flying Pond Farm in Vienna, Maine in the summer of 2020. Thats where this whole idea became just a distant reality. After countless conversations with the farmer and his family (Harold and the Grams), we had somewhat of a plan of attack for when we returned home to start cooking these private events. After a little bit of revising, they had our vision!"

For just under two decades, residents in Bucks County, Penn., a suburb of Philadelphia, were served by the Bucks County Herald, a weekly publication started by Bridget Wingert and her late husband, Joseph T. Wingert. In 2020, as a global pandemic ravaged its advertising base, the family ownership, now including Bridget's son and Publisher Joseph Wingert, had to face the possibility of ceasing publication, which so many other community news publishers did, leaving voids in local cities across the nation. However, the community support for having a local voice was so strong that in the fall of 2020, the Wingerts donated their ownership to a new charitable entity which formed the Bucks County Herald Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which through private and business donations along with advertising revenue has produced a sustainable business model that serves over 200,000 readers each week. Recently, the foundation produced a compelling video, viewed by thousands, entitled "Miracle in Bucks County," which even features a testimonial from CNN and SiriusXM host Michael Smerconish. In this 171st episode of E&P Reports, we reveal the story of the re-birth of suburban Philly weekly, The Bucks County Herald, which rose from the ashes of the global pandemic through a transformation from a family-owned to a non-profit foundation-run local news enterprise. E&P Publisher Mike Blinder question Bridget Wingert, founding editor, and her son Joe Winegert, publisher, on how they formed the new entity, what the community support is like and is this business model one that others can easily replicate.

After dealing with the effects of tick-borne Lyme disease for years, Bucks County native James Calcagni was inspired to help others battling their own health struggles. In February, the Temple University grad founded Liquid Limbs, a prosthetic device company designed to improve mobility for those with lower leg amputations. Dubbed the “Navigator,” Liquid Limbs' patent-pending prototype consists of a nonslip foot, side handle and shin plate. The goal of the product is to offer stability for people walking or showering without their everyday prosthetic, which often cannot get wet because of the metal materials in them. So far Liquid Limbs has secured $21,000 in winnings from pitch competitions, including a second-place finish in Temple's Be Your Own Boss Bowl in April. The CEO of the early stage startup was recently named one of the top innovators in Philadelphia under the age of 25 by Philadelphia Business Journal, and is now looking to secure additional funding to help with the manufacturing and launch costs of the company's flagship product.

Dom Giordano, WPHT host and former teacher, has dedicated much of his daily show toward parents who are taking it into their own hands to push back against school boards that have a negative impact on their children. This has culminated in a weekly podcast on education, Readin', Writin', and Reason, which has allowed wonderful relationships to develop between Giordano, educators, and parents throughout the country who are speaking out against overbearing school boards. Every year on the Dom Giordano Program on Philadelphia's 1210WPHT, Dom awards his Local and National 'Person of the Year' to a regular guest for what they've done within the past year. This year, Dom will announce a Readin' Writin' Reason Person of the Year as well, a guest from our podcast who listeners deem the best guest from the last year. We will have three podcasts announcing two nominees each, with listeners voting for who should move on each week, narrowing down to a final three by the end of the year. First, Dom nominates Megan Brock, a mother from Bucks County who, after becoming involved in holding local elected officials accountable, launched ParentsHaveTheRightToKnow.com. In today's nominating interview, Dom welcomes back Megan Brock, a mom from out in Bucks County, who along with other parents continues their crusade to understand what's being done inside schools, particularly centered on Coronavirus lockdowns. Today, Brock presented in Harrisburg to State Senate a new bill for parental rights along with State Senator and Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Mastriano. Brock tells about the new bill presented by the State Senator, stressing the necessity for transparency from both the State government and local school boards when determining decisions on curriculum and lockdowns. Then, Dom speaks with Dr. Elana Fishbein, another local mother who founded No Left Turn in Education, which seeks to reduce the politicization of school curricula, now featuring over 100 chapters nationwide. In today's sample interview, Dom welcomes Dr. Elana back onto the Dom Giordano Program to discuss a situation she's uncovered during a October 25th West Chester, PA school board meeting, in which Superintendent Dr. Bob Sokolowski admitted that, while he was serving as a Principal, helped hide a student's gender transition from parents. This comes after months of pushback by liberals about conservatives creating boogeymen in schools that this kind of stuff is not happening. Fishbein explains the situation in schools, and why she and other mothers with school-aged children have bonded together to form No Left Turn, to push back against overbearing school boards creating solutions for problems that don't exist.

They are joined by a mom who has been a fearless warrior for Pennsylvania students since 2020. "She did something during covid that no other parent did," Chris said. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Megan Brock said she was a "regular mom." That quickly changed when Megan saw politics taking over the public school system in her state. Schools were shutting down with no science to back up the closures. From her vantage point, kids were being used as political pawns. Meanwhile, juvenile crime rates in Philadelphia were increasing and math and science scores were rapidly dropping. Megan decided to speak up and demand answers, filing numerous Right-To-Know requests with state and local officials in Bucks County. These requests were quickly met with lawsuits, which Megan has been able to fight with the help from Judicial Watch. You can stay in touch with Megan on Twitter and learn more about your rights as parents by visiting her website. If you enjoyed this episode of Making the Leap, leave a 5-star rating and let us know what you liked about the show on your favorite podcast app. You can also comment on any of our social pages; Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Cosmo DiNardo seemed to have every opportunity in life.  He came from a wealthy family, was athletic and well liked and had aspirations to become an orthodontist. “Cosmo DiNardo is the kind of kid who would always say hello, and he would grab your groceries out of your hand and walk you to your car,” a neighbor said about him. Cosmo suffered several concussions while playing football, and he also sustained a head injury in an ATV accident.   Cosmo changed.  He became violent, paranoid and delusional.  He would sleep with a Bible on his chest in an attempt to ward off evil.  His mother said at one point, he would even foam at the mouth. Despite all this, Cosmo's doctor believed that treatment was working and that his bipolar was in remission.  The doctor removed Cosmo from all of his medication.  And then Cosmo went on a killing spree. Along with his cousin Sean Kratz, the two murdered four men in July 2017. In this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast, we discuss the murderous rampage of Cosmo DiNardo and Sean Kratz.

Full Hour | Today, Dom led off the Dom Giordano Program by asking what will happen in the City of Philadelphia if the Philadelphia Phillies win the World Series, telling of a rumor he's heard that other local Police Departments may be hesitant to provide manpower due to effects on their departments because of Philadelphia's policies in dealing with crime. Then, Giordano plays back a clip from a Bucks County commissioner who suggested that there is nothing illegal about dropping multiple ballots into a drop box, which runs counter to a recent Supreme Court ruling. Then, Dom spends the remainder of the first half hour discussing the impact of inflation on the Election, playing back clips from multiple Democrats who suggest that ‘the threat to Democracy' should be top of mind for all voters. Then, Dom welcomes Megan Brock of ParentsHaveTheRightToKnow.com back onto the Dom Giordano Program, after she sent over a clip of Bucks County Commissioner Bob Harvie saying that it is indeed legal for voters to drop multiple ballots in drop boxes. Dom gets some clarification from Brock about the law, telling that the law is written in a way that can be interpreted multiple ways, but reads that voters are allowed to make drops for residents within their ‘designated household.' Brock argues, that in a situation like a nursing home, a ‘household' should be, for example, a husband and wife or roommates sharing a room. While the law is not clear, her interpretation points toward ‘households' does not involve, in effect, a nurse dropping multiple ballots as a representative of an entire nursing home. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

And how can the government be "neutral" in the classroom? To give a real-life example, I look at Policy 321 that is being proposed in the Central Bucks School District in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. That policy attempts to keep the classroom neutral. At a recent board meeting, one of the liberal board members argued that there is no such thing as neutrality within the classroom. Is that really true?

In 2022, book bans in United States schools and libraries are at their highest since the ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom started collecting data. Bans are happening around the country, in every state, and disproportionately affecting books by and about LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC people. What's more, challenges are likely underreported, because librarians who are resisting them are facing unprecedented workplace retribution and in some cases physical danger.Book Bans are on the ballot on November 8th, in every state and local election, up and down the ticket. State legislatures, local town councils, county leadership and school boards are being overrun with candidates supported by conservative activists looking to limit access to books and ideas that offer identity, empathy, awareness, and power to young people around the country. We're concerned, so today, we're releasing a special episode of Fated Mates focused on book bans across the country.
