Friday's story ideas

Haggling. People have done it for years with cars, now it is getting more popular with big ticket items like furniture and jewelry. As some businesses suffer, are they willing to wheel and deal?

Satellite radio merger. Will current radios become obsolete, and are people waiting for the merger before taking the plunge?

Studies show that old fashioned Vitamin D keeps your blood flow at an optimum level. Sunlight is a natural source of Vitamin D.

Why do some cities take the lead in recycling while their next door neighbors fail to offer any recycling to citizens? How much does it cost?

Gambling on the rise. When times are tough, the tough go to a casino. Check on the gambling establishments in your market.

Some food companies are taking high fructose corn syrup out of their products. In one case, Thomas' English muffins actually has a banner on the package that tells consumers they've removed this deadly ingredient. Will it become a trend, and do consumers care?

Gasoline credit card wars. It seems like every gas pump these days has an offer with some sort of gas rebate. Show consumers how they can take advantage of these.
