  • Focus on matters of the heart

    Heart disease seems to be full of stealth. Like a predator approaching its prey, cardiovascular diseases can creep unnoticed and silent until they spring into a brutal attack.

    The council is hosting its annual community seminar at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the First Baptist Church, located at 2200 Diamond Drive.
