From one Gold Award winner to another: Bravo, Amanda! Not many your age can say they have been aRead More Girl Scout for 12 years - and even fewer earn that pinnacle award. Congratulations on your leadership, commitment, and achievement!

Thank you for all the support of this campaign so far! I am thrilled that people are hearing theRead More message. The ribbons are also throughout some of the parks and around the library. At the library, you can also pick up a card that lists the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Pay attention to your body, be vigilant and know the symptoms! If something seems amiss, don't wait. Have it checked out and BE PERSISTENT. Advocate for yourself and make the doctors listen. It could save your life!

I lost my mother 4 years ago to ovarian cancer. I live in Cuyahoga falls but will certainly haveRead More some teal on my front door!

Hi Annal, thanks for jumping in answering Donovan's question.

My wife and I registered with Be The Match about two months ago. The process is quick and easy, andRead More free to the donor. It's a great cause - you can find out more about Be The Match at http://marrow.org.

great video! Shows that everyone Relays for a different reason, yet we all want the same thing: anRead More end to cancer.
Kathy Bowling March 26, 2012 at 05:23 pm
Thanks to Bob Pontius for getting the ball rolling on the cash mob. I was unable to attend, butRead More look forward to the next (sparkly) one! Hopefully, if we can all share the mob-info with those we know, the next cash mob will draw even more people to our local businesses.
Amanda Harnocz March 26, 2012 at 06:49 pm
I agree, I think these can only get more successful. Hope to see you at the next one Kathy!
Becky Slam March 27, 2012 at 06:38 pm
It's a good idea for local businesses. For some reason...(yum)...I'd be interesting inRead More participating in a cash mob at Bittersweets chocolates. Seems to me like the business might be struggling and their candy is simply delightful. I'd be sad to see this chocolate shop fail.
Amanda Harnocz March 24, 2012 at 09:43 pm
Wait 'til you see the video, employees said they saw it on the site this morning. :)
K. Rider March 26, 2012 at 01:46 am
Great Idea but would love a more advance notice! I love supporting local Stow businesses!
Amanda Harnocz March 26, 2012 at 04:17 am
I think that's one of the "rules?" I think it is announced the night before. Just anotherRead More reason to check Patch daily :) Hope to see you at the next one K. Rider: If I can inform everyone sooner, I will!

I did not see one comment from Susan G Komen that they stopped funding because of abortion! I giveRead More them two thumbs up for making sure the moneys they donate are being put the best use and that they track the money to make sure of that. So if planned Parenthood would do the tests themselves then they would get the funding back. But because they outsource it SGK has no way of knowing if it is being efficiently used. Makes sense to me.
Terry February 9, 2012 at 05:02 pm
Organizations will ALWAYS follow the money. Unfortunaely, our culture today does not support anRead More organization for sticking to a decision based on principle. For SGK it was a win/win situation. They came out originally with a gutsy stand, learned that they would suffer financially as a result and in the end will benefit in the form of increased monetary support for backing down. Look at Mr. Obama's recent flip on accepting super PAC money. There was a pledge from him not to accept it and now his campaign is diving feet first into the trough. American media only supports this type of behavior by highlighting the emotional aspects of these decisions. There is no hard analysis or background on the degrading effect it has on our culture and its slowly eroding bedrock principles. Terry Bedell

What a WONDERFUL person!!!

Calling all Stow women: do you think you could do this? I donate my hair to locks of love ... but IRead More don't shave my head, I just cut off 10 inches of hair. I don't know if I have the guts to do something like this! Kudos to Nancy!
MaryfromIL October 20, 2011 at 01:15 am
Kudos to Great Harvest, love their bread! Sounds like they have all the bases covered to deal withRead More the environment in Haiti. Amazing helpfulness by the other businesses involved in this as well. I moved and didn't know where the Great harvest was in my new town. I just looked it up, and will be supporting your business here. Turns out it's pretty close to my new place. Love to frequent businesses that put their money where their heart is!
raf October 20, 2011 at 03:28 am
How many small Haitian farmers and distributors did they put out of business with thisRead More "kind" act? Please, know the territory before you end up doing more harm than good.
Amanda Harnocz October 20, 2011 at 12:09 pm
Please take a look at our main story: "Because there is a 90 percent unemployment rate inRead More Ouanaminthe, Rick said he does not want to hurt the business of the already existing bakeries throughout the village. Instead, they want to help them by providing high-protein white flour and teach them how to bake it properly." http://stow.patch.com/articles/stow-couple-donating-bakery-to-haiti

I get at least two pumpkins from First Christian every fall. Where do you get your pumpkins from inRead More or around Stow?
Ed Kent October 19, 2011 at 05:51 pm
What this couple is doing is very needed in Haiti. A missionary I support just returned from HaitiRead More again and reported the large numbers still living in the tent cities since the earthquake. What they need are people like Mr. & Mrs. Sands who can teach them. This is an excellent idea.
jan Iannetta October 19, 2011 at 09:39 pm
This is a huge needed blessing for Ouanaminthe Haiti! Thanks Rick and Debbie for listening to yourRead More heart! I HOPE EVERYONE WILL GET INVOLVED!, You with the Lords help will change lives! God Bless you!!!!!

I just ordered a beach bag from Autumn. I can't wait to use it!
Chelsea Simpson September 20, 2011 at 10:55 pm
The beach bag is one of my favorites but she made me a small backpack and I absolutely love it! IRead More use it at school all the tome! :)
Nancy Smith September 21, 2011 at 09:39 pm
Great "colorful" job, youngest granddaughter. I get sooo many compliments on my hand bagsRead More and coin purses, and the girls at church still enjoy their coin purses from our UMW Mother/Child Banquet. I'll be using the pretty orange purse right in time for "Autumn." SMILE. Proud of YOU and your donating to a very worthwhile mission project. Keep up the good work. Blessings.
