Earn a Discount at all Bon-Ton Stores Through Donations to Goodwill
The economy is showing signs of recovery, but a new survey from the National Association for Business Economics shows that job growth will likely be slow for the next couple of years. 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.

On the last day I visited him at the nursing home, Paul Lawson — a World War II combat veteran, a former newspaper reporter and my mentor in recovery — sent me on my way with his standard adieu: "Go carefully. And remember, my friend, the best any of us have ever done is today."
Put another way, Paul wanted to remind me that yesterday is gone. Tomorrow isn't here. So all that really matters — especially for those of us with histories of regrets and overambitious future aspirations to do better — is to live in the moment by living in today.
