Appreciates care

To the Editor: My husband was recently in Navarro Regional Hospital...

We were both a little worried. No need.

He went in through the Emergency Room. Within 15 minutes of arrival, he was put in a treatment room. Less than an hour later, he had already had a CT scan, chest  x-ray,  central line IV and cath on board. He was admitted and moved to a room within three hours of arrival.

The ER staff was really great. Same goes for all the staff on second floor. He was in for six days, and the treatment he received never wavered. He was treated with respect dignity and compassion.  

I just want to let you all know, they were awesome.  

Thank you to all the staff, you are appreciated. Bless you all for our minds and his pain.

Proud of Scholten

To the Editor: Corsicana can be proud of her native daughter, Ashley Scholten, who is currently serving as President of the Student Government Association for Junior Colleges.  

Her address on the capitol steps was well thought out and touches on many issues that affect our college students today.  

She is to be congratulated for being our ambassador from Corsicana. It is not often that a local citizen can make a state-wide impact on issues and Ashley has certainly done that.

  • Deanna Kirk Water Park woes

    I’ve come to the realization that vacations are not a luxury, they’re a necessity.

       Dissection of notes found in the pocket of an old suit isn’t easy. Maybe they were scrawled during the lull in a wedding ceremony, or to jog my memory of a joke for later use.

  • Dick Platt 2014.jpg Spam french fries

    I saw a relatively disturbing video and article on Yahoo which touted making Spam French fires to go alongside your big old ground chuck burger. I just can’t imagine a basket full of these deep-fried cholesterol-loaded sticks, but there they were, bigger than Texas.

  • Janet Jacobs Dumb and dumber in the blotter

    When it comes to dumb criminals, nothing beats the would-be gang of car burglars who tried to break into a car in Tampa, Florida, this past week.

  • Belcher, Bob.jpg ‘Change’ — old "buzz word" shows up in our town

    If you pay much attention when you’re driving around town lately (and I really hope that you do — pay attention, that is) you can’t help but admit we’ve seen some “change” as of late. And, contrary to the political connotations that word will forever carry with it now, that “change” we’re seeing is good.

  • Bill Tinsley Germany present and past

    Last Sunday evening my wife and I stood on the balcony of our apartment in Nuremberg and watched as fireworks lit up the sky.

    In 1949, when Stilwell, Oklahoma’s “Strawberry Festival” was just one year old, crooners were applauded when they cut loose with Dear Hearts and Gentle People.

  • Dick Platt 2014.jpg My TV is held hostage

    Give me back my TV! The Sunday sports fare today is just pitiful as far as I am concerned. Over the past weeks, my normal sports programs has been rudely preempted by endless hours of Wimbledon tennis, the Tour de France, assorted motor sports, and the nauseating mega-million signing sagas of LeBron James and Carmello Anthony

  • Janet Jacobs Thoughts from abroad

    So, with the generosity of Mastercard and warm encouragement of my friends who went with me, I went to Italy on vacation. Not Italy, Texas, the one in Europe.
