In the News: healthy kids, anti-casino, amputee expenses

Hockomock YMCA slates Healthy Kids Day on Saturday

The Hockomock Area YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event that encourages kids to be active and provides families with options and methods for living healthier.

Towns to form anti-casino coalition

Facing a classic David versus Goliath scenario, several small towns opposed to having a casino in the neighborhood are seeking strength in numbers – about 58,000 residents worth.

Amputees from Patriots Day attacks facing wide range of expenses
Cost of amputating a leg? At least $20,000. Cost of an artificial leg? More than $50,000 for the most high-tech models. Cost of an amputee's rehab? Often tens of thousands of dollars more. These are just a fraction of the medical expenses victims of the Boston Marathon bombing will face.
