Monday's story ideas

Brand loyalty. Is it a thing of the past with grocery prices skyrocketing? Is the "store brand" now the most popular?

What is WiMAX? (A Wi-Fi hot spot that can enable an entire city.) Government could use it for things like reading electrical meters without any employees. And is it coming to your market?

Cell phone dead spots. Why are there still so many, and what are companies doing about them?

How has offshore drilling impacted communities in areas that it's been around for awhile?

Summer food safety. With more people eating outside this time of year, what steps are important to make sure you don't get sick?

New York State has passed legislation that will track incidents of cancer in order to determine if there is an environmental cause. Would that be useful in your market?

Sunscreen. Explain UVA, UVB, SPF, and any other sun related abbreviations. (Meanwhile, does anyone go to a tanning parlor anymore?

Fishing is more popular this summer. It's fun, and it puts food on the table. (How many sports can make that claim?)
