U.S. Cellular Invites Wisconsin Residents to
Sign Up for Free Wireless AMBER Alerts™
 National AMBER Alert Day is Jan. 13

MILWAUKEE (Jan. 10, 2011) – As the 15th anniversary of  National AMBER Alert Awareness Day approaches Jan. 13, U.S. Cellular invites customers to sign up to receive free AMBER alerts via text message. Since its inception, the AMBER Alert program has led to the safe recovery of more than 500 children, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
            Statistics show that the first three hours following abduction are the most critical to the search. In 2005, the Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative enabled the public to receive alerts via text message on their wireless devices. Wireless AMBER Alerts have the potential to reach 96 percent of the public with more than 292 million cell phone subscribers in the United States.*
“Once customers sign up for this free service, AMBER Alerts are sent to their wireless devices, so they can be made aware of a missing child in their area immediately,” said Laurie Poellinger, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Wisconsin. “Signing up is quick, simple and may help in bringing home a lost or abducted child.”
            To sign up for wireless AMBER Alerts, visit the “About Us” section on,, or text the word “Amber” followed by a space and your 5-digit zip code to short code 26237. Customers may also sign up for wireless AMBER Alerts by visiting any U.S. Cellular retail store.

How wireless AMBER Alerts work:
1.      Sign up to receive AMBER Alerts in your area by selecting the location(s) you frequent most, such as where you live and work.
2.      Law enforcement issues an AMBER Alert and provides the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) with the information to include in the alert.
3.      NCMEC formats the AMBER Alert information, which is then relayed to U.S. Cellular.
4.      This information is sent as a free text message.
5.      U.S. Cellular customers will only receive AMBER Alerts by enrolling in the program.
6.      If you have information on a missing child, call the NCMEC toll-free Hotline at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) 24-hours a day.

Kick Start Your New Years: Exercise Day Ten: Seated Shoulder Press

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!
Day Ten Exercise:
Seated Shoulder Press

  • Use something around the house for weight, e.g. soup cans or milk jugs with water in them (more or less depending on your comfort).

  • From a seated or standing position, hold the weights just above your shoulders.

  • Push them up overhead slowly.

    This helps with that extra jiggle you have been building up in your arms as you age!  If you make a point to do these every day, within a couple of weeks you should see a noticeable difference.


    Day Ten:  Easy Exercise Tip:

    • Stretch to reach items in high places and squat to look at items at floor level.   I love doing squats to burn those leg muscles.  It's funny, I was at Kohl's the other day (I know, big surprise!) and I found something I liked on the bottom shelf, so I sat there doing squats to the music.  I laughed at the thought of someone watching me, I just hope no one did.  It was probably pretty funny!
