  • 911 tapes: Docs did nothing to help vet

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Newly released 911 tapes indicate a table of doctors did nothing as a Vietnam veteran died in the Albuquerque Veterans Affairs Hospital cafeteria.
    The Albuquerque Journal Friday reports two calls came in after veteran Jim Napolitano Garcia collapsed on June 30 in a building 500 yards from the emergency room.
    During the second call, a woman told the dispatcher the man was being hooked up to an emergency defibrillator.
    Told that paramedics were on their way, the caller responded, that there was a table of doctors sitting right next to him, and none of them were doing anything to help.
    The hospital says its response to the man’s death remains under investigation. On Thursday, New Mexico’s congressional delegation sent a letter to the acting VA director saying they have serious concerns about the handling of a patient’s death.

  • Bible Answers: Sin is a part of the human condition

    “From where does sin come and how does it affect us?”

  • Man uses mentoring as way of giving back

    When Chris McLaughlin was 5 years old, he underwent surgery to address partial hearing loss from an ear infection and resultant scar-tissue tumors.
    When he was 9, he lost most of his hearing after another surgery. Chris had been a “cool” kid with lots of friends and involved in sports, but when he showed up at school wearing hearing aids that in the technology-of-the-day resembled large music headphones, he felt different and was treated differently. Sports weren’t fun wearing a large headset with a speaker box, and he couldn’t hear without it. At first kids thought he was a rebel for wearing “music headphones” in school. Chris quickly adopted that persona. And then he began isolating himself.
    When Chris was 11, his father passed away. His mother mourned alone in her room and shortly afterward turned her attention to dating. Chris coped with his father’s loss alone. And still dealing with being different, he took to keeping a book in his hand at school, or went to the library so that he didn’t have to socialize.

  • Crawlix, nittles and quimps, oh my...

    One of my favorite scenes in “Doc Hollywood” is when Dr. Benjamin Stone (Michael J. Fox) gets frustrated and used the f-word. The deputy says, “Watch your language, Doc! You’re in the buckle of the Bible belt here. Try saying fudge or something.”
    Stone replies, “Fiddlesticks too strong?”
    Now, what does define a word as being “too strong” of a curse? If you stub your toe in Mississippi and scream “Fudge!” would anyone within earshot not know what you’re really saying?
    If you say one thing and mean another, you really just outsourcing the vulgarity. Like yelling “Sugar!” when you’re late for work and as you are getting into your car, you see that you have a flat tire.
    People use “sugar” as a term of endearment to their sweetheart. So how do you really know what your honey is saying to you when he calls you that?
    Holy fudge! Can you believe that sugar? What a dagnabbit snickerdoodle!
    Let’s face it, profanity is engrained in our culture. That’s a really sugary thought when you think about it.
    Euphemisms aside, one of the worst offenders of potty-mouth syndrome is the movie industry. Even films geared towards children contain “a little vulgarity.”
