If you can't stand the heat, manufacture a hate-crime epidemic.
After years of covering racial hoaxes on college campuses and victim sob stories in the public arena, I've encountered countless opportunists who live by that demented mindset. At best, the fakers are desperately seeking 15 minutes of infamy. At worst, their aim is the criminalization of political dissent.

As a culture, we're wistful about our tallest buildings.
Cities love to show off grand buildings as testaments to human endeavor. Illuminated skyscrapers are a region's trophies, towering evidence of its greatness. For many, the drama of an illuminated and looming edifice rivals the magic of the North Star, guiding travelers over long distances and seducing those of us who cherish the illusion of fraternizing with God.

Earn a Discount at all Bon-Ton Stores Through Donations to Goodwill

People who are already dealing with long bouts of unemployment need help to find jobs and take care of their families. By donating clean, gently used clothing and textiles during the semi-annual Goodwill Sale at the Bon-Ton Stores— Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Bergner’s, Carson Pirie Scott, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Younkers or Parisian, donors can help those individuals obtain job training and employment and receive a discount on new merchandise at the same time.

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Offers Free Screenings on April 14th in recognition of Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week
Just because you can’t feel it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Ask the more than 35,000 Americans who were diagnosed with cancers of the head and neck last year. Unfortunately, many Americans do not recognize the symptoms of these life-threatening diseases, which include cancers of the oral cavity, larynx and pharynx, and by the time they are diagnosed, for some, it’s too late. In recognition of Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (www.englewoodhospital.com
) will offer free screenings on April 14th from 4 – 7 pm. Registration is required for this free event.
