Re-energized
EUREKA, Nev. - There are many layers to exhaustion. In the dictionary exhaustion is defined as extreme fatigue. That could be cured by a good night's sleep. But real exhaustion, the kind that means; if I have to pick up one more thing off the floor; if I have to suck up one more dust bunny from its' hidey hole under the bed where it l hardly ever have the need to go because why ask for more work; if I have to scrape stuck on stuff off the clean dishes that come out of my dishwasher after the super cycle one more time; in short if I have to do or re-do much more, to the point that I literally cannot lift a finger to save a puppy from a stray tom cat, now that is exhaustion which cannot be cured with 8 hours of sleep. No that exhaustion needs more. It needs re-energization.

Farewell to Stanley Monroe, 'Mister Imlay'
LINDEN, Texas - When they moved in across the street from us in 1942, I already knew all about the new kid on the block, Stanley Monroe. He was the cousin of my little friend, Alta Mae Wright. She and her family had recently moved to Imlay from Sparks, then shortly after, the Monroe's arrived. Stanley was a tall skinny kid of about ten or eleven, and the only child. His father was also long and lean, and the other railroaders had a nickname for him. (The other railroaders had a nickname for every other railroader)

Living in a desert oasis
Quite often here we have bright, white puffy clouds drifting beneath a deep blue sky. Sometimes you notice what looks like a thunderhead developing within them and you think it's going to rain but it does not. Even when dark, grey clouds fill the sky, you figure the rain is here at last, but it isn't. Sometimes we get a few drops but it's just a tease. Then, on very rare occasions, when the rain does come, it never lasts very long. Guess that is why this place is a desert and remains so.

Food as a weapon
We can only guess how the decision was made for Russia to ban food imports from most of the Western world, but perhaps it went something like this: President Vladimir Putin was sitting with some of his old pals from his KGB days. Putin was desperate for a way to retaliate against the West for its economic sanctions leveled against Russia for intervening to help the rebels in Ukraine. He asked for suggestions.

Getting help with your Medicare costs when money is tight
Medicare provides vital health insurance for 50 million seniors and people with disabilities. But even when you have Medicare, health care is not free. People with Medicare pay premiums and have other costs that they pay out of pocket, like deductibles and co-insurance. For lower-income people, these costs can be overwhelming.

Life springs
Life springs out of the most amazing barren places. From the highest mountains to the bottom of the deep blue sea, you will see life in one form or another make it's presence known. It should be no surprise therefore, that flowers bloom in the desert. I know it's true for we have our own desert rose here in Lovelock. She is Rosaline Mateas, affectionately known by all as "Rosie".

Champions of Change for Agriculture set a high bar
WASHINGTON - "Ordinary people doing extraordinary things." This fitting phrase was offered by President Barack Obama to describe the 15 men and women who were recently named by the White House as "Champions of Change" for Agriculture. These champions include farmers, business leaders, lawyers, scientists and FFA members from across the nation whose innovation and dedication is building a bridge to the next generation of farming and ranching.

What Medicare does (and doesn't) cover
Medicare helps pay for a wide variety of medical services and goods in hospitals, doctor's offices, and other healthcare settings. But it doesn't cover everything, and it's useful to know what is and isn't included.

Education's 'big data' problem - and how to fix it
Every year, American public schools spend $2.2 billion replacing teachers who drop out of the profession.

But the true cost to the system is even bigger. When teachers stick with their jobs, they build up valuable experience and improve their instructional techniques. When they leave, that valuable experience vanishes.

No one holds a candle to Joel
Near the beach where I grew up in South Jersey, there lived a guy named Joel Fogel. He was a legend. Those who didn't know him, knew of him.

Lovelock Row
One of my favorite writers of all time has to be John Steinbeck. One of the books he wrote was titled "Cannery Row." If you think back quite a few years ago you may well have read it. It was full of amusing twists of fate, colorful characters and the ups and downs of day to day life. The reason I bring up this book is, the characters and plot are so much like modern day life in Lovelock, Nev. You could almost call our little town "Lovelock Row."
