If it weren’t for the services of Opening Doors in Dubuque, a women by the name of “Q” most likely would have taken longer to get her life back on a positive path. “Opening Doors offers hospitality and opportunity to homeless women, alone or with children, who need emergency, transitional or permanent housing and related...

You think you might have achieved your final goal — like getting engaged or married, or getting a coveted new job or losing 25 pounds...
Unfortunately, too many of us know someone — a family member, friend or colleague — who is affected by breast cancer. In fact, breast cancer accounts for nearly one in three cancers diagnosed in U.S. women, according to the American Cancer Society. Since there is no cure for breast cancer, more needs to be done...

Since 2012, Marina O’Rourke has had a legacy to carry forth in the foundation her late mother began building more than 40 years ago. It has been no easy task. But if there was ever a person to honor the discipline of dance, the development of young dancers, the evolution of the art form while...
