    Offering Treatment for Chronic Jaw Pain

    By Cyndi Braun

    The symptoms seem unrelated. You have a headache, your face feels tired in the morning, your ear aches a bit, and your neck is tight.

    By Sheriff Frank Reynolds

    Where were you on 9/11? I was in bed after having worked a night shift on patrol. My phone rang, and it was my mother, “Are you watching the news?”  

    I could tell in her voice something was not right. “Why, what’s going on?” I asked. She indicated two planes had struck the World Trade Center buildings. I told her I would call her back, and I went to the living room to turn on the television.

    The flight attendant walked down the aisle collecting our morning breakfast, as we made our final descent into Israeli airspace. It had been ten years since I flew to the Middle East, and I couldn’t help but think of my first flight into Baghdad, which was a spiraling corkscrew descent from twenty thousand feet, and the mission was completely different.

    I never knew if I’d have the opportunity to return to this part of the world, but as

    The Glass Is Always Half Full

    By Tina Morris

    Arguably the best at what he does, Thomas Arvid didn’t start in oil painting. Growing up in Michigan, Thomas always found an artistic way to complete his classwork, whether it was illustrating poetry for an English assignment or creating a mural for history class. He made airbrush T-shirts for friends and created stone sculptures for a landscape company. After graduating high school, Thomas went on to work in the printing and
