Letter: Driver stunned by lack of caring while stranded on US 301

Posted on November 29, 2017 1:01 am by Robert Joseph Baker

Monday morning, Nov. 27, I was a little surprised at the lack of concern for a fellow motorist. I stood beside my daughters’ car with a flat tire (on U.S. 301) and watched person after person drive by. Many people were just texting or on their phones!
But I made eye contact with some people, and they didn’t think twice about a woman standing in the cold. I even recognized some people, but I won’t call you out.
I watched trucks with more than one person in (them).
There were people in service trucks, people that work at the nearby … Read the rest

Letter: Put ‘Christmas’ back in name of Parade

Posted on November 28, 2017 8:08 am by Submitted by Reader

So, something I wanted to get off my chest after Sunday.

Last I checked, we still live in a Bible-carrying, God-fearing area of the country. So they think its OK now to take Christ out of the parade and now call it a Parade of Lights.
Stop please. Christ is the reason for the season, not the lights.
So, go back to calling it a Christmas parade.

Posted on November 28, 2017 4:04 am by The Associated Press

Being in pain is never fun no matter what the reason behind it. It can be acute, such as following surgery or a chronic condition that is causing the pain.
Often, narcotic painkillers are recommended for several types of pain because they really reduce the patient’s pain levels so that they can help return to normal functioning.
Every medication has side effects and no medication is 100% safe, but there are ways to manage the side effects of narcotic painkillers.

Opioid-induced constipation (OIC) is a very common side effect from taking opioids. To help combat this side effect:
