  • Poll Finds That County Residents Are Optimistic About The Economy

    For more than 30 years, the Center for the Study of Local Issues has polled county residents on a wide range of issues. Using students from a variety of courses, the spring 2015 survey was completed on April 2. That poll included several questions that tapped residents’ views of the economy.

  • Drink Up On World Kidney Day, March 12Exclusive

    March 12 is World Kidney Day, and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is asking Americans to drink a glass of water to celebrate their kidneys. Consuming plenty of fluid helps the kidneys clear waste and toxins from the body. Studies have also shown that increasing fluid intake is one of the best ways to prevent the formation of painful kidney stones.
    The right level of fluid intake for any individual depends on many factors, including gender, exercise, climate, health conditions, pregnancy and breastfeeding. In addition, those with advanced kidney disease or kidney failure often have to restrict their fluid intake. In general, drinking 1.5 to 2 liters (3 to 4 pints) of water per day is...
