Bits of Business | Home Instead Senior Care hiring

A State College area senior care company announced earlier this spring that it aims to add more than 100 new employees within the year.

A report from Home Instead Senior Care said this addition is in response to the growing senior population and need for senior caregivers.

“We’re looking for compassionate and caring individuals who enjoy helping others,” said owner Ron Krasnansky. “Working to improve lives of families in our communities can be very satisfying.”

Local filmmaker’s work

now online

A State College man turned his interest in the “Buffalo wing” into a documentary that is now available on iTunes, Hulu, Amazon, Google, Xbox Video, PlayStation and Vudu.

Eric Brouse’s documentary, “The Great Chicken Wing Hunt,” tells the story of where the tasty snack originated in the chicken wing’s 50th anniversary and follows a group of wing enthusiasts.

According to a press release, Brouse and his film crew traveled to western New York and visited the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y., which claims the title of the hot-wing originator in March 1964.

In total, the crew also stopped at 72 bars and restaurants, traveled 2,627 miles and tried 270 types of wings in 16 days.

“Working on this film gave me a chance to learn about a subculture I never knew existed — hot wing fanatics,” Brouse said. “The history of the Buffalo wing is pretty amazing.”

The documentary was released in select theaters in January.

Brouse, 27, is a State College Area High School graduate and studied film at Penn State.
