Shop Small Campaign Focuses on Local Business
Published on 11/24/2017 under News While a number of shoppers are battling crowds for Black Friday, a growing promotion focused on local businesses is in store for tomorrow. That campaign is known as Shop Small Saturday; the national event began in 2010 and continues to expand. Here in Tomahawk, businesses combine their shop local campaigns with the Christmas holiday kickoff known as Winter Wonderland. Coming up tomorrow shops along the business corridor will be offering a series of unique sales and promotions. Participating businesses will have Shop Small Saturday displays and logos. Amy Dickerall with Tomahawk Main Street joined the morning forum last week to talk about several downtown events. She noted it important it is to keep money in your community, and also emphasized how much those businesses, in turn, help the community. Dickerall was also on to promote the Tomahawk Main Street Win the Window promotion which launched last week. More than 80 businesses are participating in that contest, where a specific purchase or donation will fill a bingo-like card for a chance to win one of six prizes.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month
Published on 11/24/2017 under News November marks Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and we recently heard from officials at the James Beck Cancer Center about the disease that kills 1.6 million people around the globe each year. Tammery Perry is a nurse practitioner at James Beck. She noted that lung cancer causes more deaths than colon, breast, and prostate cancer combined. She passed along some additional facts from the American Lung Association. First up, anyone can get lung cancer. While we're familiar with tobacco smoke, other exposures that can increase lung cancer risks include: radon, pollution and industrial compounds like dust and fumes can also play a role. Second, symptoms vary. The American Lung Association says that many people don't experience symptoms until the disease is in later stages. Those symptoms can include chest pain, persistent cough, hoarseness, shortness of breath and frequent lung infections. Third, while it is difficult to detect in early stages, that is also when lung cancer can be treated more successfully. That is why they say screenings, especially for higher risk patients is so important.
