Teacher Says “Don’t Put Off Screening”
Kathleen Metter knew when she turned 50 that she should schedule a routine colonoscopy.

For children who are learning to read, the English language is full of tough challenges. Many words contain tricky silent letters. Other letters are pronounced differently depending on the word, requiring students to learn context clues to get the right sound. There are also homonyms — words that sound the same but are spelled differently. And that’s just a few of the pitfalls.

So as her students practiced their reading, sounding out the words aloud, Carol Milhollin listened very closely. 

April Employee of the Month: "I can see that we make a difference."

Bruce Smith says, “A hospital building operates differently. There are a lot of things you have to take care of.”
