Elementary school dedication remembered Jayne Ann Miller
lubbockonline.com / Mon, 02 Mar 2015 01:56:32 +0000

Reading out loud from a journal of letters he wrote to his wife after her death, David Miller said Sunday was 30 months from the day she died.

His wife probably would have thought she wasn’t worthy of a school being named for her, and probably wouldn’t want him to read his personal thoughts, Miller said at the dedication of the Jayne Ann Miller Elementary School on Sunday afternoon in the school cafeteria.

Chemistry of cold: Snow, ice to stay through Monday after weather poses challenge
lubbockonline.com / Mon, 02 Mar 2015 00:56:10 +0000

Lubbock area roads should shed their layers of snow and ice by Monday as conditions warm up ahead of another round of winter weather this week.

The chemistry of cold hadn’t been in Lubbock street crews’ favor for much of the weekend as they tried to keep area roads free of ice and snow from last week’s winter storm.

Slightly warmer temperatures Sunday — hovering right at the freezing mark for the high — helped thaw area roads.

And city crews spent much of the weekend driving in gutters trying to break built up ice and snow.

Lubbock resident Laurel Martinez loves watching short, to-the-point lectures that make her think, including TED talks.

So, when she found out Texas Tech would be hosting a conference, she made sure to buy a ticket as soon as they were available.

“I’ve seen (TED talks) online all the time,” Martinez said. “But this is the first live one I’ve been to. I do love the TED talks online, so I figured it’d be even better to see in person.”

Victim of success? Data shows vaccine exemptions rising in region
lubbockonline.com / Sun, 01 Mar 2015 06:31:28 +0000

 

For Carla Thrash, whether to exempt children from vaccinations is a question of safety vs. personal choice that can affect her children's health.

Giving children immunizations, as it stands, is left to parents' discretion — though failing to do so can, under certain circumstances, limit a child's access to school.

Despite the potential risks of not vaccinating children, an increasing number of children exempt from vaccinations are going to area schools.

Passion guides Lubbock doctor to lead cancer advocacy
lubbockonline.com / Sun, 01 Mar 2015 06:22:14 +0000

Every cancer has a story.

There’s a first name, last name, mom, dad, siblings, grandparents and an address, said Dr. Davor Vugrin.

Not every cancer has a cure or a prevention recommendation, he said, but his passion stems from the desire to educate people about those that do.

Margaret Vugrin, his wife of 44 years, said she remembers the day in early 2000 when her husband walked into their home after a work day and told her he’d seen goals set by the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and encourage people to get screened for colon cancer.

Man helps boys after plunge into frigid Lubbock lake
lubbockonline.com / Sun, 01 Mar 2015 04:07:21 +0000

When Doug Davis left his home for the afternoon, he drove past a Lubbock park and noticed four middle school-aged boys playing near a lake.

Davis told his wife, “That looks like a bad idea.”

But, the couple continued driving until Davis, who is sensitive to light, realized despite the hazy and cold weather he needed his sunglasses.

When the couple drove back toward their home about 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning, Davis looked at the lake once again.

This time, two of the boys were in the water, struggling to get out of the lake at Charles A. Guy Park.

Cold chemistry: Why some Lubbock area roads are still treacherous
lubbockonline.com / Sat, 28 Feb 2015 21:08:30 +0000

The worst of the most recent winter storm may be over, but some area roads are still under the weather and could get worse.

And the chemistry of cold isn’t in Lubbock street crews’ favor in trying to keep area roads free of ice and snow.

“Crews spent time today driving in the gutters, trying to break up ice and snow that has built up there,” said Lubbock spokesman Jeff McKito, adding ice and snow buildup in the gutters keeps freezable water from leaving the streets. “Driving over that helps break it up and allow the water to stay off the street and into the gutter.”

Lubbock doctors encourage colon cancer screening
lubbockonline.com / Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:59:10 +0000

Every cancer has a story.

If you catch it early, it may not develop.

Local doctors say the idea of a colonoscopy may seem uncomfortable, but the procedure could save your life.

“So colon cancer is a malignancy of the large intestine," said Dr. Timothy Miller, a gastroenterologist for Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates.

It often affects the last four feet of the gastrointestinal tract.

“It’s a very common type of cancer in men and women,” Miller said.

It’s also among the more deadly.
