Be Cool By Evan Ratner MD

A quick reminder about the extreme heat that is forecast for this weekend. Hydration is an all day pursuit, it is important to start drinking before you are outside, while you are outside, and after you go back inside. It is almost impossible to keep up if you are hydrating only while outside.  If you have to be outside, than  take frequent breaks to go into a cooled environment. Even 20 minutes at a stretch can help to keep your core temperature from getting too high.

Concussion Testing

Recent advances in the recognition and management of head injuries and concussions in student athletes are dramatic.  There is plenty of media coverage communicating the importance that the scientific evidence supports in regards to the necessity for better screening and management of concussions in our young athletes.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC), recommends that all athletes receive a baseline test prior to participating in any high risk athletic activity.

Rotary promotes the love of reading

If you are like me, you grew up with parents that read to you. I remember as a child, my dad reading Dr. Seuss with me on the family couch.

Truthfully, my father did not enjoy reading. Yet, he knew its value. Through his simple appreciation of the value of literacy, he passed onto me the joy of reading.

Come ask Councilwoman Chan your District 9 Questions.

Matt Scherer

If you live in District 9, you have probably seen the handiwork of Elisa Chan, our city council woman.

As someone who lives in Stone Oak, I can attest that her efforts to fix traffic issues has made me want to thank her for that attention to detail.  Several years ago, a drive out of my neighborhood was a good 20 to 30 minutes with the influx of parents who drive their children to school.  In short, it was a mess to leave my house unless I left before 6:45 a.m. or after 9 a.m.

What's the Buzz? Tell me what's happening.

Dear Panthers…. We have had quite an eventful beginning of the semester. I guess the biggest news locally is the announcement of Dr. Middleton’s retirement after 21 years as superintendent. Serving as superintendent that many years is unheard of in most cases. The average tenure of a superintendent in Texas is roughly 2 years. I for one am proud to have served as Principal with him.
