Get screened, save your life

September is Ovarian and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer is ranked fifth in cancer causing death among women and the ninth most common cancer. The risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is about 1 in 72. The risk of dying from ovarian cancer is about 1 in 100. The American Cancer Society estimates that 22,240 people will be diagnosed and 14,230 will die from ovarian cancer in 2013.

City of Ruston listens to the people

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

I’ll be the first to admit that in recent years I’ve become disillusioned with many forms of our government.
And I wasn’t shocked by the recent resignation of U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, who attributed his move to the fact that “Rather than producing tangible solutions to better this nation, partisan posturing has created a legislative standstill. Unfortunately, I do not foresee this environment to change anytime soon. I have decided not to seek re-election, so that another may put forth ideas on how to break through the gridlock and bring about positive change for our country.”

Our mother, Dorothy “Dot” Elaine (Calhoun) McRee passed away on September 7, 2013. Dorothy was born in Monroe on February 15, 1928 to Ida Eugenia Calhoun and James Daniel Calhoun. Mom grew up all over Louisiana, as her family followed her father in his work in sawmills. She graduated from Louisiana Tech with a degree in Biology, going on to work for the Bendel-Wright Clinic in Monroe. She spoke fondly of her time at the Clinic and of Drs. George Wright and William Bendel. It was Dr. Wright who would deliver Dorothy's first child, Briana.

Aug. 20 marked the opening day for the playground at North Village Plaza on U.S. Highway 33. Since the playground’s opening, there are always children playing on the equipment, especially after school and on the weekends. North Village Plaza has a 24-hour surveillance system to ensure the safety of the community Karl Malone, owner of North Village Plaza, said.
“The entire project is community-minded and was created, not for the benefit of the Malone family, but for all of Ruston,” Malone said. “Anyone visiting the North Village Plaza can see that it is made to be first class and on a grand scale.”

FARMERVILE — Union General Hospital may be in danger of closing after the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services released a report Aug. 15 re-examining funding for Critical Access Hospitals (CAH’s) deemed under the “Necessary Provider” (NP) provision.
The “necessary provider” provision has helped to subsidize Union General Hospital for several years under a reimbursement plan. Union General CEO Evalyn Ormond said if legislative action is taken, and the Center for Medicare Services decides to eradicate the provision, not only could the hospital be in danger of closing, but Union Parish residents could face serious health risks.
