WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE KIWANIS All About the Kids WEAU 13 News reported the Kiwanis Club of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, donated $25,000 to the library's Story Builder Campaign. Club President-elect Thomas Mihajlov says this is a great way to show how much the club cares for the community. "… with Kiwanis it's all about the kids, that's what we're really focused on," he said. Food Pantry Donations The quarterly "Feed Wilton" Ki- wanis Club food drive for the Wilton Social Services food pantry gener- ated $14,260, reported The Wilton Bulletin (Wilton, Connecticut). Since adapting to the pandemic with a focus on cash and gift cards, each successive effort has achieved a record-level response, the club said. Overall, contributions have resulted in more than $35,000 to benefit the food insecure. Big Smiles The Kiwanis Club of Brockport awarded Oak Orchard Community Health Center a donation with the goal of improving oral and dental care for young children, reported the Westside News & Greece News (Rochester, NY). In a joint effort be- tween Oak Orchard's pediatric and dental departments, this donation will help to provide dental supplies and education for the families of their one-year old patients. New Generosity Unmasked The Kiwanis Club of Greater Rox- bury, New Jersey, purchased and donated 1,400 masks to four area police departments in Roxbury, Wharton (Mine Hill), Mount Arling- ton and Dover, reported Tap Into Roxbury. "It is important for our club to keep our front-line heroes safe and healthy," the club said. Ki- wanis Club of Roxbury was officially formed on Dec. 7, 2020. Its first act was to distribute 100 food boxes containing 35 to 45 pounds of food to families in need due to the coro- navirus. The club said it is planning another distribution this month. Priority Number One Fox 47 WSYM (Lansing, Michi- gan) reported the Kiwanis Club and Foundation of Jackson, are contributing $40,000 to the YMCA's campaign for a new facility in downtown Jackson. "The mission of the YMCA is closely aligned to the mission of Kiwanis in making kids priority number one," said Kiwanis Club President Jim Philo. Question: It was a treat for CBS to release "Star Trek: Discovery" on their regular network. Do you think there is any chance those of us without CBS All Access will get to see Season 2? — Larry Matt Roush: Probably not, be- cause the Trek spinoffs (includ- ing "Picard" and others in the pipeline) are critical to the brand identity of ViacomCBS's stream- ing service, which in 2021 will be renamed Paramount+ to further distance it from the legacy linear network. You're right that the first season of Discovery got that primetime exposure because of pandemic production delays, but it was also an effective com- mercial to try to lure fans such as yourself to give the streamer a look. If that's not a possibility, your best bet to see future sea- sons will be the DVD route. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "e Mandalorian" for its Force-full finale. at was no Jedi mind trick, that really was Luke Skywalker (thanks to some CGI) who showed up in the last moments to take Baby Yoda off to his training. What that means for Season 3, we still have no idea, but Mando's goodbye to his lil pal will stick with us until then. Cheers to "Mr. Mayor's" na- tional treasure. We would like to kick off our campaign to get SNL alum Bobby Moynihan on the Emmy ballot for his unimpeach- ably hilarious work as Jayden, the awkward communications direc- tor trying his best to win over L.A.'s newly elected honcho (Ted Danson) on the NBC sitcom. Jeers to "e Stand" for jump- ing all over the place. Instead of following the linear narrative of Stephen King's novel, CBS All Ac- cess' adaptation, starring James Marsden and Whoopi Goldberg, bounces from pre-pandemic to post- apocalypse so much, it's hard to keep track of who is good, evil or even alive!
