United States Mint Launches 50th America the Beautiful Quarters® Program Coin

Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Quarter

SALMON, Idaho (PRWEB) November 06, 2019
The United States Mint (Mint) today officially launched the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coin honoring Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho. This is the fifth and final quarter of 2019, and the 50th coin overall in the program.
Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness comprises rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild whitewater rivers, including the Main Salmon River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The reverse (tails) design of the quarter representing this site depicts a piloted drift boat on a rushing river encompassed by the trees and rock formations of the wilderness.
During the ceremony, Mint Director David J. Ryder expressed his sentiments about the new quarter, saying it “serves as a reminder of the essence of the Wilderness—more than two million acres of prehistoric mountains, fertile conifers and commanding rivers but flourishing with stories of heritage and wonder.”
The live-streamed ceremony included guest speakers Mike Simpson, U.S. Representative of Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District; Larry LaRocco, former U.S. Representative of the 1st Congressional District; Kathryn Hitch, Regional Director for U.S. Senator Mike Crapo; Amy Taylor, Regional Director for U.S. Senator James Risch; Charles Mark, Supervisor of Salmon-Challis National Forest; and John Burns, former Forest Supervisor of Salmon National Forest, who served as master of ceremonies. The Mint’s customary coin exchange rounded out the event.
The Mint released collectible rolls and bags containing Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness quarters on November 4. These products are available for purchase through the Mint’s online catalog at catalog.usmint.gov/coin-programs/america-the-beautiful-quarters-program/ or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
The America the Beautiful Quarters® Program is a 12-year initiative that honors 56 national parks and other national sites authorized by Public Law 110-456. Each year until 2020, the public will see five new national sites depicted on the reverses (tails sides) of the America the Beautiful Quarters coins, with a final coin scheduled for release in 2021. The Mint is issuing these quarters in the order in which the national sites were officially established.

United Way of Frederick County and BGE HOME Continue Partnership on “A Gift of Warmth” to Help a Family in Need

FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) November 05, 2019
This holiday season, one family in need will receive a much welcomed gift – a new high-efficiency heating system – thanks to the “A Gift of Warmth” program sponsored by BGE HOME, and United Way of Frederick County (UWFC).
Nominations will be accepted from November 4 through December 1. If you know a deserving Frederick County resident that is in need of “A Gift of Warmth” this holiday season, visit http://www.unitedwayfrederick.org/agiftofwarmth to submit a nomination and tell us their story.
United Way of Frederick County and BGE HOME have partnered to bring “A Gift of Warmth” to one Frederick County individual or family in need since 2013.
The 2018 recipient, Mohamed Ismail, stood out to the panel of United Way volunteers due to struggling to heat his multigenerational home. His outdated system was causing his energy bill to skyrocket. When the BGE HOME volunteers arrived to install the new system for the Ismail family, they were surprised to see that the old system was almost completely frozen.
The ALICE Report for Maryland revealed that 39 percent of Frederick County households struggle to afford basic household necessities. With that in mind, United Way of Frederick County and BGE HOME are excited to work together to help a household in need reduce costs and stay safe and warm in their home for many winters to come.

What Are The Most Common Car Insurance Claims In The United States?

“Thefts and minor accidents are among the most common filed claims by policyholders. Policyholders that don’t want to have their premiums increased should avoid filing claims for minor damage”, said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) November 01, 2019
Compare-autoinsurance.org has launched a new blog post that presents the most common car insurance claims.

Many drivers can have questions regarding on what car insurance claims are more likely to be filed at the insurers. It is good to know in what car accidents where a driver is involved it is necessary to file a claim.
The following are the most common car insurance claims in the US:
Minor accidents. Accidents like fender benders, where the damage done to a vehicle is minimal and there are no injuries, are among the most common filed claims. Even if these types of claims are common and the insurers don’t have to pay too much, the premiums of the policyholders that file such claims will rise anyway, especially if multiple claims are filed in a short period of time. To avoid paying more on their premiums, drivers should support paying the minor damages done to their vehicles from their own pockets.
Windshield damage. It takes just a rock to kick up from another vehicle to smash a windshield. The windshield can also be shattered in an accident. Drivers that carry comprehensive coverage will be reimbursed with the costs to repair or replace the damaged windshield.
Vandalism. In some areas, vandalism can be quite common and drivers frequently find that their vehicles got smashed with a baseball bat, keyed, broken into, or vandalized in another way. Comprehensive coverage will reimburse acts of vandalism. However, drivers that file too many claims in a short period of time will have their premiums increased by their insurers.
Storm damage. The damage from hail and floods can be quite severe, and there are many cases where vehicles ended up being declared as totaled. Drivers that live in areas where dangerous storms are frequent should take some extra measures to protect their vehicles.
Single-vehicle collisions. Collisions with inanimate objects are among the most commonly filed claims. Many unlucky drivers suffered collisions with objects such as street lamps, fence posts, or mailboxes.
Whiplash. This type of injury occurs when the neck is jerked forward in a quick motion. It can happen during rear-end collisions or in any type of car accident. Depending on the severity of this injury, victims may require medical care.
Theft. Drivers that got their cars stolen will be reimbursed if they have comprehensive coverage. However, they will not get a check with the value of a brand-new vehicle. Instead, they will be reimbursed with the market value of the vehicle at the time it got stolen. If the stolen vehicle was financed, then the policyholder will have to pay the difference between the amount he owes to the bank and the amount the insurer will payout.
