I am a strong believer in the free market. There are many products and services that offer great advantages when done as a DIY or at a better cost. However, we all know there are some things better left to the educated professionals. Here are three dental DIYs I recommend a second thought before jumping in. The first dental DIY I recommend avoiding is over-the-counter night guards. It may seem simple enough to mold a guard to your teeth, but there are several complicating factors that can occur. One of the most important aspects of an occlusal or night guard is the occlusion or bite. Your ..read more

Did you know we have an estimated 583 children who are under the care of Child Protective Services in Denton County? And did you know 204 of those children are housed outside of our county due to lack of available local foster families where they can be placed. This situation seems to only worsen with the phenomenal growth our county is experiencing, so Child Protective Services in Denton County is currently undergoing significant changes in our region as privatization of the program begins. A new community-based care model, adopted by the Texas Legislature in 2017 in Senate Bill 11 (https://c ..read more

What is it to be a volunteer? Simply stated, it is someone who freely offers their own time for the benefit of others. Think about that for just a moment, and imagine how different our lives would be without volunteers.  Who would stand in our courts beside children facing difficult situations to serve on their behalf as advocates?  Who would answer a midnight call and then respond to help after a major storm causes calamity in a community?  Who would watch the skies, looking for signs of hail, high winds, and tornadoes amid a thunderstorm so we can be alerted in time to seek sa ..read more

Several years ago, mother and daughter Stephanie and Lauren Cook devised a plan to sponsor dogs that might otherwise spend the rest of their days in a local shelter and train them to be paired with veterans needing a little extra companionship. It was a brilliant idea in that veterans receive the support they need, gain a best friend along the way, and save a deserving dog from a horrible situation.  And for all intents and purposes, everything has come together quicker than they ever could have imagined. The Healing Hero Project is the latest to join the ranks of local 501(c)(3) organiza ..read more

Birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, holidays — one thing they often have in common is the consumption of alcohol. But for those unable or unwilling to drink alcohol, there hasn’t been much of a festive alternative. Non-alcoholic choices have been boring, flat, or tasteless.  Enter Starla, the beautifully branded, non-alcoholic wine created by wine lovers for wine lovers.  Marketed as “alcohol-removed wine,” Starla is sugar and carb-free and made by extracting the alcohol from fully fermented wine, so the flavor and experience remain when the alcohol is removed. Starla’s co-founders ..read more
