The Powerball Jackpot for tonight's drawing is $550 million dollars. What would you do with a half billion dollars? Tickets are selling for $2 each, and even those of us who don't regularly buy tickets are saying "Why not?" This is the largest Powerball jackpot ever. The odds of a single ticket winning are 1 in 175 million. The cash option is $360.2 million.

Powerball numbers
5 - 16 - 22 - 23 - 29 - PB: 6

Drag Queens will add some flair to the Mummers Parade in Philadelphia this year on New Year’s Day. Ten veteran drag queen performers will join the Drag Brigade and lead the string bands from Washington Avenue to City Hall. Each drag queen will be outfitted to match her assigned Fancy Brigade and perform before the competition at the Convention Center.

A recent rash of burglaries in Delaware County has homeowners becoming more vigilant. Eight burglaries have been reported in Nether Providence Township since August. At a Town Hall meeting last night, police urged homeowners to take steps to minimize the likelihood of being targeted.

General Recommendations for Improved Residential Security:
1) A home should appear occupied day or night.
2) The interior should be checked before leaving.
3) Small valuables and cash should be stored in inconspicuous or camouflaged hiding places throughout the house. Burglars first check bedrooms, dining areas, kitchens and refrigerators. Valuable objects should not be displayed in plain view of windows.
4) Keep complete list of valuable items in a safe place (include make, model, serial numbers and colored photos).
5) Always lock the home using heavy duty dead bolt locks. Protect the keys, only lending to trusted friends or relatives. Never hide a key outside. Replace the lock or re-key if a key is stolen.
6) Close and lock windows, screens and storm windows. Arrange window shades in normal positions as if the house was occupied.
7) Set electrical timers to turn lights on/off during the evening hours to duplicate normal patterns. A radio, tuned to a talk station, can be controlled by a timer during the day giving the house an occupied sound.
8) If you have an alarm system. Make sure to set up when you leave the house.
9) As one exits the residence, the exterior should be viewed as a potential burglar might see it.
10) The garage door and any connecting door to the house should be locked, both using heavy duty locks.
11) House and garden equipment, lawn furniture, ladders, garbage cans should not be left outside where they could be used to gain access to a high window or ledge.
12) Install a mail box large enough to conceal magazines and small packages, delivered while the house is unoccupied. Arrange receptacles or procedures with cooperating neighbors for newspapers and packaged deliveries which may arrive.
13) Don’t post messages which indicate an empty house or time of return.
14) If possible, leave a locked car parked in the driveway blocking access to the garage.
15) Prepare window glass, door and window locks without delay.
IF going on vacation, the following additional precautions should be taken:
16) Transfer valuables and cash to a safe deposit box or bank account.
17) Notify the police department (610-892-2875) about departure times and return dates. Supply a local name and phone number to be reached in the event of an emergency.
18) Stop mail deliveries or have a neighbor pick it up daily and hold for your return.
19) Leave an itinerary or an emergency phone number where you can be reached with a trusted neighbor or friend.
20) Stop newspaper delivery or arrange with a neighbor to remove papers, circulars and unexpected packages left in your absence.
21) Schedule the grass to be cut to keep its normal appearance. Prune shrubbery and plants so that they will not be overgrown and hide the view of your home from neighbor’s observation. In winter, arrange for snow shoveling or “we’re at home” tracks in the snow.
22) Ask a neighbor to place some of their garbage out for pick up at your home to maintain a “normal” routine.
23) Turn off any automatic lawn sprinkling system.”
