Angel Gates is a woman who works hard and plays hard. She's a woman driven by love for her family, giving back to her community and blasting her foes on the paintball field.
A stroke, a wheelchair, even seizures, couldn't change that.
Gates, of Rineyville, has been volunteering in some way or another for many years. She started volunteering with a migrant education program when her oldest son started school. She started volunteering with the American Red Cross 12 years ago.
If you are pregnant, recently had a baby, are breastfeeding or have a child younger than 5, you may be eligible for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program, said Roxanne O. True, M.S., L.D., R.D., Director of Nutrition Services and WIC for Lincoln Trail District Health Department.
The WIC Program was established by the United States Department of Agriculture more than 35 years ago to ensure pregnant women receive nutritious foods to promote growth and development of their babies and themselves.
With only having one car between myself and my husband at the moment, I wasn’t able to leave the house very much. I did try to take the kids outside as much as possible, but it wasn’t easy with the ridiculous amount of layers needed, and the inability to take a newborn out into the snow for very long. Everything had to be done around the littlest one’s schedule. And so we spent far too many hours inside staring out the window.
My favorite part of the "reduce, reuse, recycle" mantra is reuse. I feel clever and creative when I find new ways to use containers that hold the food and other items I buy at my grocery store. I also feel a little resourceful because I am not spending money on plastic containers from the home organization aisle. In my efforts to go green and save some dough, I have run across some very useful container repurposing ideas that will help you be a proud reuser.
For the last 10 years, Tom Durkin has been the voice of the Triple Crown on NBC. This year, he voluntarily chose to not renew his contract to announce the three most important horse races of the year. He is very open about the reason he gave up this very important announcing position. He is exhausted by the performance anxiety created by being the voice of such an important sporting event.
