GOSHEN -- Hungry for pancakes?

Goshen's Salvation Army will be serving thousands of them today at their all-you-can-eat 47th annual Pancake and Sausage Day.

"This is one of our primary fundraisers," said Maj. Carrie Pollom, who helps with the event. "We actually make more here than with the Christmas Kettles."

Pollom said they hope to raise $50,000 at this year's pancake feast. Last year, they raised a little less than $44,000 and served around 2,000 people. The money raised from the day will go to the Salvation Army's general assistance fund where it will help the community, disaster relief efforts and other needs.

"It is vitally important for us and those who come to us," she said.

Pollom said that many of their supplies for the pancake day are donated or purchased ahead of time with donated funds.

"But the fun part is serving the pancakes," she said.

More than 200 people volunteer to help serve those pancakes and sausages, clean and organize the event. Along with members of the Salvation Army, members from local clubs, including Goshen Rotary, Goshen Kiwanis and the Goshen VFW, help out during the day.

"It's an army of volunteers," she said.

The highest courts in Arizona and the nation have cleared the way for the state to carry out its third execution in the last year on Wednesday, following a closely watched First Amendment fight over the secrecy surrounding lethal injection drugs.  Wood was sentenced to death for killing Debra Dietz and her father, Eugene Dietz, in 1989 at the family's automotive shop in Tucson.  (AP Photo)

Arizona's highest court on Wednesday temporarily halted the execution of the condemned inmate so it could consider a last-minute appeal. The Arizona Supreme Court said it would consider whether he received inadequate legal representation at his sentencing. The appeal also challenges the secrecy of the lethal injection process and the drugs that are used. (AP Photo)
