CHARLESTON — West Virginia Music Hall of Fame inductee Homer Bailes passed away on Tuesday.
Q: My 5-year-old son is an only child whom I homeschool. He talks back, argues and generally wears me down. I need help getting to him to realize that no is no, that I mean what I say. I know I'm the problem. Help!
Walk-a-thons are major fundraisers for many charities, and breast cancer research and development is one of the top beneficiaries of this popular and increasingly star-studded activity. Just ask breast cancer survivors and fundraising veterans Sheryl Crow, Edie Falco, Cynthia Nixon and Robin Roberts, who have helped various breast cancer organizations raise millions of dollars. From 2003 to 2011, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer raised more than $420 million. But the (non-trans-fat) icing on the (carrot) cake is that the act of walking itself actually reduces your risk of developing breast cancer.
