The need to help a 2-year-old boy struck in the head by a falling tree limb continues with fundraisers to be held Friday and Saturday in Winder.

They will also be accepting items for the silent auction at the Cribs to Crayon Daycare on Friday from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The daycare is located at 116 West May Street in Winder.

      If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
