DOTHAN, Ala. -- An organization in an Alabama town is offering Jewish families as much as $50,000 to relocate its Bible Belt community.
Larry Blumberg is chairman of an organization wanting Jewish families to move to Dothan, an overwhelmingly Christian town of 58,000 that calls itself the Peanut Capital of the World. Get involved at Temple Emanu-El and stay at least five years, the group's leaders say, and the money doesn't have to be repaid.

Vitamin 'may prevent memory loss'
Many people are deficient in vitamin B12
A vitamin found in meat, fish and milk may help stave off memory loss in old age, a study has suggested.
Older people with lower than average vitamin B12 levels were more than six times more likely to experience brain shrinkage, researchers concluded.
The University of Oxford study, published in the journal Neurology, tested the 107 apparently healthy volunteers over a five-year period.
Some studies suggest two out of five people are deficient in the vitamin.
