ARTHRITIS affects one in 7 people in America. Glucosamine, chondroitins and MSM are the most common natural remedies used to manage pain and to supply building materials for joint repair.

My fiancée and my soon-to-be stepdaughter just got over a bout with the flu recently. They had both been at my house while they were sick, but thankfully Brooke and I avoided getting it.

I am tempted to “wax Churchillian” in describing Jim Hogan. He’s a man who raised eyebrows in Texas with his strong—albeit unconventional—campaign that resulted in a strong runner-up finish in the recent Commissioner of Agriculture election. Old Winston, in a 1939 radio address, said Russia was “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” If modified, it also fits Hogan--a Johnson County “good old boy” who defied political strategies of campaign experts far and wide in ...

School. The place to get an education. Especially at lunch time. We learn to barter and trade. Your ham-and-cheese for my tuna sandwich. I’ll take your apple if you’ll take my banana. We also learn to buy and sell. Give you a quarter for those cookies. I’ll take 50 cents for this cupcake. Sometimes we even share. Some days we bring our lunch. Made with love by Mom. Everything tucked nicely in lunchboxes. Or made by your grumpy sister. And tossed in a brown paper sack. Some ...
