Digital mammography at Sanford
THUMBS UP: Breast cancer detection is about to be enhanced in an area city, as Sanford Canby will soon put into use new digital mammography. Sanford currently uses a mobile digital machine that it employs once a week. But come this spring, the campus will have an on-site digital mammography machine installed, meaning more convenience for patients who won't have to schedule specific appointments for mammograms on a certain day during the week.

MnSCU?chooses passion over experience
THUMBS UP: MnSCU trustees say Steven Rosenstone's passion outweighed the experience Utah commissioner of higher education William Sederburg would bring to the table in choosing their next chancellor. They believed in that passion so much so that the final vote wasn't even close - 14-1 in favor of Rosenstone. That's quite a margin when it comes to choosing between two qualified finalists. Time will tell how this will play out, and it wouldn't be fair to judge the decision so soon, but it appears Rosenstone really made an impact on the Board of Trustees.
