Bon-Ton Stores help raise $107,350 for American Heart Month
MILWAUKEE – The Bon-Ton Stores exceeded its goal of raising $100,000 for the American Heart Association during February by $7,350. As part of the campaign, up to $20,000 of the goal came through texting and social media interaction and the rest was generated through the sales of Community Days coupon books online and at all the company’s retail stores.

The term "Arctic Freeze" conjures up uninviting images of blowing snow and biting cold temperatures.

There are 400,000 new cases diagnosed in the United States every year.

Each received a transplanted heart after his own was irreparably damaged by a viral infection.

Beer with benefits
Surprise! Savoring a beer might be just what’s needed as part of one’s health regime. But, the caveat emphasizes, it’s a tactic only in moderation.
The first 24
One day last March, Blake returned from his daily six-mile walk feeling a little sick. "I was going to have dinner, but I wasn’t really hungry. That should’ve been the tip-off to me that something was wrong," he says. "I felt like I had a bad case of heartburn, so I went to lie down. That didn’t help, and when I stood up, I felt light-headed and faint."
