  •  NEW YORK – Those tempted to kick off summer by getting a “base tan” should be aware that there is no such thing as a safe, healthy or protective tan.

    The misconception that a base tan will protect the skin is dangerous; even for those who never burn, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can lead to skin aging (including wrinkles, lines and age spots) as well as skin cancer. In fact, about 65 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with sun exposure.

  •  Waunakee, WI - Nothing says "welcome to summer" like an undeserved traffic ticket - especially when you're traveling in another state.

And most municipalities don't want to publicize their ticket-happy ways for fear of being labeled speed traps.
