Skin cancer screening


The Columbiana County Health Department, 7360 state Route 45, is offering skin cancer screening from 1 to 3 p.m. next Tuesday. There is no charge for general health district residents, and a $5 charge for anyone outside the health district or Columbiana County.

Skin cancer, the most common type of cancer, is easy to detect, and most types can be cured when detected early. Residents with a suspicious lesion, such as a sore that will not heal, a mole or wart that has changed, a change in color pigment of the skin, or any skin abnormality, may be seen at this clinic. To schedule an appointment, call 330-424-0272 ext. 114.

Walmart, Sam’s Club help the hungry


One in eight Americans struggle with hunger, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including 86,000 people in the Mahoning Valley. To raise awareness and combat the issue, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America Æ and Second Harvest Food Bank are engaged in their sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” (FHSC) campaign, which runs through May 20.

In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, Walmart and Sam’s Club invite Mahoning Valley shoppers to help fight hunger in their local communities by purchasing a participating item in-store or online, donating in-store or donating on Feeding America’s website.

For every participating product purchased at U.S. Walmart stores, Sam’s Clubs or on during the campaign, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.
