  • Veteran vents in personal poetry

    RADCLIFF — While focus and concentrated thinking can be difficult for the schizophrenic mind, Samuel R. Himes is able to express his thoughts and experience through poetry in his latest book, “103 Shadows Set Free.”

    The book is a follow-up to his first published piece, “102 Shades of Blue,” which Himes describes as more of an anthology. His most recent book is strictly poems.

    “In this book, I’m allowing the reader to see a little bit more of me this time,” Himes said. “It’s more personal.”

  • Inner sanctum


    rvillanueva@thenewsenterprise.com BONNIEVILLE — Kim Gentry hopes Speleofest 2008 will offer cavers and non-cavers alike the opportunity to explore. Not only caves, but other interests as well.

    “We’re hoping this year to have three different bands,” Gentry, Speleofest chairwoman, said.


    For some people, “exercise” is a dirty word. The fact remains, however, that almost everyone can improve their health through physical activity.

    Regular physical activity can substantially reduce the risk of developing or dying from heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and high blood pressure. Research also has linked regular physical activity to the prevention of breast cancer, stroke and osteoporosis. It strengthens bones, builds muscles, improves circulation and helps maintain a healthy weight.

  • Ask ECTC

     Q: I am getting ready to take my finals and want to sell my books back to the bookstore. What do I need to know to sell them?

     A: Your ECTC Bookstore buys books all year long, but the best time to sell your books is when finals start. We will pay you 50 percent of the book’s selling price if your professors have assigned it for the next term and the bookstore is not overstocked.
