Americans mark Thanksgiving with parades, turkey

NEW YORK (AP) — Turkey, stuffing and a helium-filled Thomas the Tank Engine are on the menu as friends and families gather across the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving. Oohing and ahhing spectators of all ages lined the route of the nationally televised Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which counted Thomas the Tank Engine, Paddington bear and the Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger among its six new giant balloons. Like bedazzled rock fans who land coveted stage-front spots, she and her cousins were lucky enough to score the front row of a 20-person-deep crowd. The honor of leading the parade went to the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band from Western Carolina University. The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade featured animals from the Central Park Zoo. Power outages from the first major snowstorm of the season could force some residents of the Northeast to celebrate Thanksgiving much like the pilgrims and Native Americans did almost 400 years ago — in the dark. Ian Rhodes, of Concord, New Hampshire, had planned to host his first Thanksgiving with his wife and two young children for a dozen people, but the power outage changed that. To the delight of some and consternation of others, it's increasingly become commonplace to see stores open on Thanksgiving, as retailers try to entice shoppers inside and kick off the holiday shopping season a day earlier than the traditional Black Friday.

Plainview charity fights hunger

PLAINVIEW — Beverly Wall will never forget the moment she learned the impact of hunger in her community.
The Plainview activist delivered a supply of food to a client through Faith in Sharing House, a Christian-based charity program in which she serves as board secretary.
The client — an elderly woman with a limited support system — showed an abundance of gratitude for the gift. When she helped put the groceries away, Wall could see why — the woman’s refrigerator and kitchen cabinets were completely bare.
“Hunger is real,” Wall said.
