Santa Monica, California Landmarks Commission Recognizes Historic Events at Hotel Shangri-la at The Ocean


Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

Following a six month review, the Santa Monica Landmarks Commission approved supplemental language this week that acknowledged the historic role Hotel Shangri-la played in 1940 when local dentist Dr. Jack H. Taylor and Lt. Col. William H. Donovan held meetings there which led to the eventual formation of key elements of the Office of Security Services (OSS), precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency.

According to the Landmarks Commission, Prior to and during the years of the Second World War, the Hotel Shangri-la had a strong association with events that were of national importance relative to the United States involvement in this conflict.

Following a 1940 mission to England by Donovan for President Roosevelt to assess that nations defense capabilities, he met Taylor at the Hotel Shangri-la. They discussed Americas lack of military preparedness to enter World War II and how the United States military posture must quickly change. Donovans concern for the countrys physical well-being resonated deeply with Taylor and he invited him to the beach by the Hotel Shangri-la for a demonstration of his watermen/lifeguard/swimmers nautical diving skills in the Pacific Ocean.

Relying on oral history interviews conducted by Santa Monica historian Erick Simmel with members of the OSS Maritime Unit (which became the U.S. Navy Seals program in 1962), the Landmarks Commission recognized the covert meetings at the Hotel Shangri-la between Donovan, the first chief of the OSS and Jack Taylor, widely recognized as the first Navy Seal.

Simmels research revealed that Donovan first met Taylor when he escorted his aspiring actress daughter Patricia to the dentists office on Second Street in late 1939, and he and Taylor remained in contact.

Deeply impressed, Donovan returned to Washington D.C. and eventually incorporated what he saw as part of Americas soon-to-be covert military toolbox. In addition to serving as a launching platform for the OSS Maritime Unit, the Shangrila Apartment Hotel (as it was known then), along with five other hotels in Santa Monica, was taken over by the U.S. military during the later stages of World War II to host soldiers returning home from the Pacific theatre.

On May 1st, Hotel Shangri-la will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its inaugural opening. The property will host a series of events during the year to honor its rich history and Diamond Jubilee anniversary.

Puppies Rescued from Suspicious House Fire in Miami Dade Find Hope for Fresh Start in Brevard County


Titusville, Florida (PRWEB) May 04, 2015

On Wednesday, a mother pit bull and her three four-week-old puppies were saved from one of three homes in a Miami-Dade County neighborhood that had been riddled with bullets and then set ablaze by a Molotov Cocktail. Miami-Dade Animal Services confiscated the dogs, which left their fate uncertain in one of the largest municipal animal shelters in the country.

As soon as I heard this tiny little familys story, I knew we had to help, said SPCA of Brevard Associate Director, Angie Friers. We immediately reached out to my rescue contacts in South Florida, who sprang into action.

It turns out that there was also another sweet shepherd-mix dog that came into MDAS as a stray, and she had a litter of puppies in the shelter twelve days ago. We all know that a cold shelter floor is no place for a mom to raise babies, so I asked our dog intake team if we could find room to bring this family in also and get them into a foster home. Since I work with the most compassionate set of animal lovers ever, we arranged to pick up that family, too, exclaimed Friers. As luck would have it, there were also additional puppies without a mom that needed rescue, so two additional three-month old puppies hitched a ride aboard the Rescue Wagon to the SPCA of Brevard on Saturday afternoon.

On Monday, the SPCAs vet will provide a thorough check-up on all the moms and puppies, and once given the green-light, they will be placed into foster care until the puppies can be weaned, spayed or neutered and then adopted into loving homes. A YouCaring page has been established to accept donations that will be used to care for the fifteen lives saved. Follow this rescue story on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/spcabrevard.

American Textile Recycling Service Sets New Record for Running Gear Collected at Rock n Roll Marathon Arizona


Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 20, 2015

American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS) and the Rock n Roll Marathon Series set a new record at the P.F. Changs Rock n Roll Arizona Half Marathon this past weekend. The ROCK RUN RECYCLE partnership between the Phoenix based textile recycler and the nations largest marathon series inspired more runners than ever before to shed warm-up layers at the Start Line and along the course for recycling.

Approximately 5,000 lbs. of unwanted clothing, shoes and race swag were picked up from the half marathon course and dropped off by runners at the Health & Fitness Expo. The result was a 40% increase from last years race, despite warmer than average weather on race day.

Volunteers, friends and family dressed in the companys signature ATRS RECYCLE HERE tees and green fairy gear lined the corals early on race morning to greet runners and collect warm-up apparel as the event kicked off. Every pound was bagged and weighed for reuse, redistribution or recycling. Local charity Weldon House directly benefits from the program and will receive much-needed funds from the collections.

“Despite a higher than expected temperature we had our best collection year yet, that’s a real testament to people knowing we are here to recycle running gear,” Says Robby Milner Market Team Manager in Arizona for ATRS Recycling, “Our Green Fairies and the Weldon House volunteers all pitched in to make this Rock Run Recycle Campaign the best year yet! A huge thank you to all our volunteers for helping us keep Arizona clean and green!”

The team also collected several palettes of water, snacks, bananas and other perishables from the Finish Line, which were immediately delivered to The Weldon House and a local homeless shelter to support day-to-day meal programs.

ATRS Clothing & Shoe Recyclers are located throughout the State of Arizona and provide year round drop-off points for gently used, outgrown and unwanted clothing, shoes, toys and household textiles. Each recycler provides an ongoing monthly stream of revenue for local charities like Weldon House, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Childrens Miracle Network. To find a recycler near you, call the 24-Hour Hotline 866.900-9308 or visit http://www.atrscorp.com/rockrunrecycle.

Now in its third year, the campaign is sponsored by ATRS and the Rock n Roll Marathon Series to promote fun, earth-friendly recycling practices at each race.
