  • If Bryan Smith had taken the advice of some of his high school teachers, he might have gone to trade or vocational school.

  • The Centers for Disease Control recommends a three-step approach to fighting flu.

    The first and most important step is to get a flu vaccination each year.

    But if you get the flu, there are prescription antiviral drugs that can treat your illness. Early treatment especially is important for the elderly, the very young, people with certain chronic health conditions and pregnant women.

    Finally, everyday preventive actions can slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory — nose, throat and lungs — illnesses such as flu.

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now we can really start concentrating on Christmas. We have our decorations up outside and the lights are on. I am still working on decorating inside. I have decided this year I am going to make sure all of my nieces and nephews know the true meaning of Christmas. I hope all of you will share the story of the birth of Jesus with your children and grandchildren this Christmas season as well.
