Blonde On The Prairie: The Blonde’s Favorite Things

December 14, 2012

I know I’m not Oprah. I’m just me. A humble mis-fit of a gal just trying to get by the best she can with what she has. This week, out of the blue I was forced into a situation that had me either wanting to jump (not for joy but off a cliff.) I felt like I had been stung by a billion bees when the news hit. I felt like my insides were being bitten by a pack of angry dogs. “That doesn’t sound like you Jodi Rae,” you’re saying to yourself.

Heart Attacks More Common in Winter

December 13, 2012

Having a healthy heart and knowing the signs of heart attack are always important, but more so during the holiday season.

Dr. JoEllen Kohlman-Petrick, an interventional cardiologist at the Sanford Heart Center in Fargo, warned that she sees more heart attacks during the fall and winter. Anytime people are under more stress, like during Christmas when people stress over money and preparations, they are more susceptible to heart attacks.

Also, increased activity such as shoveling snow or deer hunting in a person who may be otherwise sedentary, can cause stress on the heart.

An article and headline in Wednesday's edition of the Times-Record incorrectly stated that the Maple Valley boys basketball team is trying to win their third straight Barnes County Tournament title, when the team is trying to win its fourth.
Maple Valley won the tournament twice in 2010, when the boys and girls tournaments switched months, and also won in 2011.
