    A pathologist said a 93-year-old Bay City man froze to death inside his home - his body found days after city workers said they limited electricity flowing to the house. Marvin E. Schur suffered "a slow, painful death" inside his home at 1600 S. Chilson St. on Bay City's southwest side, said Dr. Kanu Virani, who performed an autopsy on the body. "Hypothermia shuts the whole system down, slowly," Virani said. "It's not easy to die from hypothermia without first realizing your fingers and toes feel like they're burning." Funeral services for Schur, a retired pattern-maker who lived alone, are...

    McDougall: Thank you for visiting me in my office in Santa Rosa, California under these supernatural circumstances. I am so sorry about your untimely death from a heart attack on June 13, 2008.

    Subway -- the multi-national fast-food sub-shop giant -- has shot themselves in the foot. Again. The goal of their latest promotion was to win the loyalty of parents of grade school-aged kids -- to increase market share, revenue and profits.

    The truest hero does not think of himself as one, never advertises himself as such and does not perform the acts that make him a hero for either fame or fortune. He does not wait for government to act if he senses an opportunity to fix a problem himself. On July 27, 2006 in the quiet countryside of Maidenhead, England, we spent several hours with a true hero: Sir Nicholas Winton. His friends call him "Nicky."

    MARQUETTE - A Marenisco man was happy to be alive this morning after a tornado that crossed Lake Gogebic Sunday night lifted back into the sky just before hitting his home. "It was sunny. I just went to turn on The Weather Channel and my wife screamed, 'Look what's coming,'" said Bill Richards. "It was on us instantly. It lifted the boat, the dock and the lake all at once. I could see the bottom of the lake."
