Daale says nutritional information will be available at the health fair, and we all know that an apple a day helps keep the doctor away, so local grocery and supermarkets will help in that cause.

(LeMars) --  Floyd Valley Hospital will unveil a new marketing/advertising campaign.  The Board of Trustees heard a proposal during last evening's monthly meeting.  The new campaign will feature several different aspects of the hospital such as care, compassion, technology, and experience, with the catch phrase  "...lives here."  The new tagline will be "Your community, Your Hospital, Your Life." Hospital officials believe the new campaign will help increase awareness and broaden their marketing share.

(Des Moines) -- Iowa farmers have been able to take advantage of the drier conditions by accelerating their harvest.  Soybean harvest is now 70 percent complete, and the corn harvest is 27 percent finished.  However, the dry and windy conditions have also meant an increase in the number of field fires, and farmers are urged to take extra care when harvesting.

(Des Moines) -- October is breast cancer awareness month, and in recent years there has been a decline in breast cancer deaths, but the drop has not been uniform across the female population.  The fall has been faster among affluent women than lower-income women.  Chuck Reed, spokesman for the Iowa Cancer Society says the reason is because the lower income women often do not have health insurance coverage and they are not able to get the proper screenings, or the proper medical treatment.
