Losing friends

FREE

This past week I was saddened to hear the loss of not one, but two friends of mine. Patrick Carmack, a 1988 graduate of PHS, died of a sudden heart attack last Tuesday.

Broken record resolutions? Let’s be a bit kinder this year

FREE

Each year I tend to make resolutions that quickly fall by the wayside. They usually include: eat less, exercise more. Rest more, get out more and spend less are among those things that I resolve to add/delete from my life. This year, I resolve to be better. I won ‘t be perfect. I will fail. I will succeed.
