  • Sleep for the stubborn

    I noticed that the Sleep Center is having a ribbon cutting [today]. Without exaggerating, I honestly believe Dr. Assar El-Atfy and his team of sleep technicians saved my life.

    I had not rested for decades. I can remember first having trouble falling asleep in class as a fourth grader. By high school, I slept a little in practically every class. I never felt rested. My eyes usually burned with the urge to sleep. I was never safe to drive out of town because of my constant sleepiness. This pattern grew worse over a 25-year period.

  • When you don't snooze, you lose

    Here at the newspaper, we get news releases on an hourly basis from various groups and organizations across the country. Most probably don't realize we're a community paper and, that if it doesn't affect Taylor County or its residents, then we're probably not too interested.

    But every now and then, one comes across my desk - or into my e-mail's inbox - and it catches my attention. I opened one such e-mail the other day, and the first thought that passed through my mind was, "Well, duh ..."

    A hallway becomes a fencepost. A window transforms into a rose garden. Countless plastic bags become a tote bag.
