Welcome to Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day!
Coming on the heels of National Doughnut Day, Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day celebrates this specific type of doughnut. The jelly-filled doughnut is popular in the United States and Canada, but there are many variations of this treat throughout the world including: the Berliner from Germany; krapfen from Austria; krafne from Eastern Europe; bomboloni from Italy; pączki from Poland; anpan from Japan; sufganiyot from Israel; and jam doughnuts from Australia, England, and Nigeria. Originally these doughnuts were not filled with jelly, but with meat and vegetables. The falling of the price of sugar because of Caribbean sugar plantations in the 16th century helped spur sweets in Europe. By the 17th century, jelly doughnuts were invented, although the the word “doughnut” was not used to describe them at the time.

Fox Syracuse, Spectrum owners reach deal to end 4-month cable TV dispute (PS; Herbert)
The Fox broadcast network is finally returning to Spectrum's cable TV lineup in Syracuse after a contract dispute that lasted more than four months.
Brian Brady, President/CEO of Northwest Broadcasting announced Thursday evening that an agreement has been reached with Charter Communications, the parent company of Spectrum Cable.
"We're pleased to have reached a fair agreement with Northwest Broadcasting," a rep for Charter told syracuse.com in a statement. "We're working to restore signals, and expect to have programming back on for customers by tomorrow."
Fox Syracuse GM Don O'Connor said Fox and other affected TV channels should be available to Spectrum customers in Central New York by noon Friday, June 8.
Northwest owns Bristlecone Broadcasting, which owns Fox Syracuse stations WSYT Fox 68 (channels 8 and 1206) and WNYS My43 (MyNet channels 7 SD and 507 HD). The channels had been blacked out for Spectrum subscribers in CNY since Feb. 2.
