Dear Editor: I can't be quiet any longer. Can't we as citizens of the United States do something about these gas prices? I mean this is getting ridiculous! I am a mother of two, a wife trying her best to get my life back together and my family back together after a multitude of problems, money being one of them. After losing my job because my son was ill, I'm looking for a decent-paying job, one with benefits, which I lost with my job, and one with hours that might allow me to be a mother and a wife.

When Carlos Serna, executive director of Homeplace Support Services, hired Carey Tinsley about a year ago, he didn't realize he was getting a two-fer. Serrna knew he was getting an experienced registered nurse to serve as nurse for the program and also operations manager. But not long after the Liberty woman moved into her office at the Homeplace complex off of South Second Street, he noticed he also was getting a dog that would become a favorite of the staff as well as the mentally and physically disabled patients that Homeplace serves.

Dear Editor: It may seem to the patient that the drug reps take up time the doctor could be spending with the patient but I would like to clarify just what happens when they come from the waiting room into the office. The rep comes in, asks the nurse if samples are needed, and if so they package them, log them in and then stand to wait for a physician's signature. When the doctor gets a spare minute in between patients, he will step up and sign for the sample drugs and go on to the next patient.

Boy, have I got news for you! You probably won't believe it, and all I can say is to just try it! For years I have truly suffered from leg cramps/twitching. The only time it happens is in bed when I'm lying down, trying to sleep. I can be dog tired and literally cannot wait to lie down my weary body, close my eyes and drift away to dream land. Maybe I'll read a little, then, with utter delight, I will put my book aside, turn out the light, arrange myself in just the right position and finally end the day. I won't be there two minutes when - BOOM - my legs become fully awake and begin dancing a jig. That moment is, without a doubt, one of life's biggest disappointments.

“See ya tomorrow,” the young lady said with a smile as she walked out of the doctor’s waiting room and headed toward the Mayo Clinic elevators. I noticed her before she even spoke because she was so fit, so healthy looking, and seemed so familiar with the space and the nurses. After she left the area, I walked (hobbled on my crutches) to the nurse behind the schedule desk. Since we've been going to Mayo to “stay as together as long as possible,” we’ve become friends with many of the nurses and the doctors and feel free to openly talk about most anything to them.
