Female cancer patients have the opportunity to ‘Look Good…Feel Better’® at Mile Bluff - Juneau County



The healthcare professionals at Mile Bluff have teamed up with area cosmetologists to offer a program to ladies who are undergoing cancer treatments.  On Monday, November 3, Mile Bluff will hold its next ‘Look Good…Feel Better’® group training session.

The event is a two-hour, hands-on workshop with a ‘Look Good…Feel Better’® volunteer beauty professional.  During the meeting, participants are taught nail care techniques and a 12-step skin care/make-up application process.  Ladies will also learn about available options for dealing with hair loss - including wigs, scarves and accessories.

‘Look Good…Feel Better’® is a free, non-medical, brand-neutral public service program.  It was created to help women with cancer look good, improve their self-esteem and ultimately manage their treatment and recovery with confidence.  Through its group meetings, self-help materials, websites and brochures, ‘Look Good…Feel Better’® offers women advice for coping with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments.

If you are a lady who is receiving cancer treatments, and would like to ‘Look Good…Feel Better’®, come to Mile Bluff Medical Center in Mauston on Monday, November 3 from 1 to 3 pm.  As a participant, you will take home free make-up kits, program information and a rebuilt self-esteem to face your treatments with added confidence.  The session is free and open to any woman currently going through cancer treatments at any healthcare facility.  Registration is required.  Call 608-847-9877 for information and to reserve your spot.

Trick-or-Treating is Friday, October 31 from 4-7 PM in the City of Adams and Village of Friendship.




With Trick-or-Treating right around the corner, the Adams County Sheriff's Office has some safety tips for you.  

Please leave a front porch light on if you wish to be visited by trick-or-treaters.  

Following are a few safety tips for trick-or-treaters.
General Safety
  • Plan your route with your family ahead of time. Pick streets that are well lit and in your own neighborhood. Parents should provide a watch and indicate a time children should return home.
  • Trick-or-Treat with a parent, older sibling, or with a group of children if someone older can't go with you.
  • Children should go only to houses where the porch lights are on, and never go into a house. Children should walk from house to house - NEVER RUN!
  • Children should carry a flashlight after dark.
Costume Safety
  • Wear a costume that fits and makes it easy for you to walk. Strips of reflective tape or light-colored costumes will make you more visible.
  • Parents should attach name, address and phone number to sleeves of young children in case they become lost or separated from their group.
  • A face mask may keep you from seeing well. Why not use face makeup instead? If you must wear a face mask, take it off before you cross a street.
Traffic Safety
  • If a child has to cross the street, they should cross at a crosswalk or corner, not mid-block and never between parked cars. Look both ways before crossing and be alert for cars turning at intersections.
  • Children should stay on the sidewalks. If there are no sidewalks, they should walk with the road on their right.
  • If someone drives when you trick-or-treat, buckle up every time you get into the car - even if it is only a few blocks.
Treat Safety
  • Children should not eat treats until they return home and the treats are inspected by parents.
  • Fruit should be cut and washed before it is eaten.
  • Candy wrappers should be checked for tampering. Do not eat anything that is not wrapped or appears to be tampered with. If in doubt, throw it away.
  • Report any evidence of tampering to the Sheriff's Office 608-339-3304.
