MaryAnn Digman's guest Jackie Powers Roskosky is a retired infection preventionist and one who is recovering, along with her family, from COVID 19. Her experiences with the virus, managing her symptoms as well as her husband’s and daughter’s infection course, were challenging. She described the fever, aches and extreme fatigue as being worse for her husband even though very significant for her. Jackie and her family are still having symptoms after one month even though they are no longer considered infectious. Jackie’s message was, “if you get COVID 19, don’t panic. Use a pulse oximeter and a thermometer to evaluate these vital signs. You can recover.” Jackie also reiterated that we all need to wear a mask, wash our hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer and keep our hands away from our face.

All About Books: Lydia Udero-Vaughan
Eighth-grade English language arts teacher Lydia Udero-Vaughan chatted with Lynn Moorer about her debut book of fiction, As I Battle Your Demons: Book One: The Chosen, a young adult novel that traces the trials, tribulations, and paranormal experiences of Lee DelRay who, when thirteen years old, begins to endure terrifying nightmares that leave her physically wounded and her parents, who deny abuse or mistreatment, baffled. After she is committed to a mental hospital, Lee initially experiences hell on earth through overmedication and mistreatment while she fights demons in horrifying nightmares. After an angel comes to her and tells her she’s God’s warrior, she asks God for victory in battling demons and her life begins to improve. When she leaves the hospital after reaching age eighteen and having experienced a loving relationship with a kindly doctor and his family, she begins to build a happy life with new friends while also fighting demons encountered when awake. When traveling in Italy with a friend, then meeting an older brother she hasn’t seen for years, and finding a new love interest, an angel gives Lee a life-altering choice: join the battle against Lucifer and his army or live a normal life.

This is why we can’t have nice things.
That was essentially the claim made by local developer Randy McMillan after plans fell through for a special tax district to fund a planned upscale project on the old Las Cruces Country Club property off Main Street. McMillan, who was working with Nebraska developer Zachary Weigert on the project, said it was city staff who first came to them with the idea of using a Tax Increment Development District to help finance the project.
Then, 18 months into planning, city leaders began making insulting accusations, causing Weigert to reconsider plans to develop here, McMillan said.
“There are communities that are business friendly and embrace people like Zach, and that’s where he will go,” McMillan said during a recent radio interview. “And frankly, it’s that attitude that is why this state is 49th or 50th in every good category and first or second in every bad category.”
