  • As summer ends and the impending cooler months arrive, so does the season to consume alcohol. If we are aware of the seasonal influences then our consumption can be less risky. We are fond of football, fall festivals, and parades. Picking pumpkins, having hayrides, or watching football should remain family fun activities. The planners of these events should take care to assure that when alcohol is allowed, there are policies in place to prevent underage drinking and adult over consumption.

  • I love a good reunion story.
    A few years ago The New York Times ran a story about then-New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel and a young man named John Mathieson.
    Thirty-four years prior to Fassel and his wife Kitty meeting Mathieson they had been 19 and unmarried — and the parents of a baby boy whose birth and adoption they kept secret from all but their immediate families.
    And for 34 years, every April 5 the Fassels privately wished their baby boy a Happy Birthday, adding, “Wherever you are, we hope you’re OK.”
