What’s going on at Teges is the same thing that’s going on a lot of places these days, a debate about what’s more important, getting as much coal out of the ground as quickly and as cheaply as possible, for electricity and a small number of temporary jobs, or preserving some of these hills and forests and rivers and creeks for future generations.

Temptations Boutique and Salon is setting aside two days in which a portion of proceeds from services will be donated to the American Cancer Society to help create a world with more birthdays and less cancer.
Temptations, a salon servicing many clients in Manchester and surrounding areas located at 474 Keavy Road, will make the donations from services done on Thursday, December 2 and Friday, December 3.
Hair can also be donated toward the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program that partners with the American Cancer Society to create wigs for men and women who have lost their hair due to their cancer treatments.
“We really want to let people know about this terrible disease and about how to stay well and get well and also help fight back against it. People who are interested in donating their hair will be helping in a huge way too, to create these wigs that can help cancer patients deal with this part of their struggle to beat cancer,” says Temptations Owner and hairstylist, Keith London. “It would be so wonderful to no longer hear the word ‘cancer’ because it won’t exist anymore.”
People may call Temptations Boutique and Salon at 606-862-9230 to set up an appointment for those days. For additional information on cancer, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 at anytime or visit online at cancer.org.

The American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well from cancer through educating people about healthy lifestyle choices like exercising, eating right, and quitting smoking, by helping people get well through programs such as Road to Recovery (transportation assistance) and Look Good... Feel Better (to help women deal with appearance-related side effects from the treatment).
The American Cancer Society also helps by finding cures through research into various cancers and by fighting back through advocacy and efforts like Relay for Life that rally communities together against fighting cancer.
