     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.

  • Remember Mothers every day of the year, not just on special day

     My name is Robert Huff. I will always remember my mother, not only on “Mother’s Day” but every day. She was a wonderful mother, wife to my dad, a friend to all people she came in contact with. She was always there to give help to anyone who needed help. My mother and dad were God-fearing people. When the church doors opened they were there and I might add that we children went to church together and were baptized.
