  • Fighting frozen toes

    This winter opened with bitter cold for much of the nation, including parts of the country not used to snow and ice. Here in the northern tier states we are at least equipped to respond to winter storms, but they always pose a challenge.

    At a very human level, cold temperatures often show up first as the experience of cold hands and cold feet. Even with good socks and sturdy boots, when I’m outside there are temperatures below which I cannot keep my toes warm (this is more common the older I get, a trend I don’t appreciate).

  • Bernanke outlines plan for pulling in stimulus aid

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke began Wednesday to outline the central bank's strategy for reeling in stimulus money once the economic recovery is more firmly rooted.
