Maggie Armatys from the Lazy Girls Kitchen on YouTube stopped by the Woonsocket Harris Public Library and taught everyone from preschoolers to high schoolers how to make delightfully spooky brownies with a variety of candy toppings. This is a great idea if you have a Halloween Party or family gathering and can adapt it for your family activity. This was so much fun. Don't worry we will have her back for more foodie fun at the library very soon. Until then enjoy the video.

Bennet is concerned about how the Chinese company behind TikTok collects Americans' data.       California lawmakers are looking to strengthen concealed carry laws after two recent mass shootings. State Senator Anthony Portantino has proposed legislation that would set standards on getting a concealed carry weapon permit, such as a minimum age of 21-years-old. This comes after the deadly shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay.       Hunter Biden is finally admitting the infamous laptop is his.
