The Family Project: ER scrutiny

Friday, March 8, 2019 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

Q. My son fell off his bike and broke his arm. When we took him to the hospital Emergency Room (ER), they asked him and us a lot of questions that made me feel like they suspected us of abusing him (we didn’t). Does this happen to all parents who bring injured children for treatment?

The panel agreed that the experience of the parent asking the question is an outgrowth of contemporary society.

“I think in this day and age, doctors are doing a lot of covering their bets,” panelist Mike Daniels said, “so there are going to be lots of questions.”

Respectfully Yours: Monologuing

Friday, March 8, 2019 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn, I don’t want to hurt my cousin’s feelings, but she says the same thing at least three times but in different ways. I think she wants to keep the conversation going but I find it annoying. She will tell me that someone cut her off while she was driving and then she will tell me again, but in a different way. She does not suffer from memory loss. How can I politely change the subject?

Movie Review: ‘Dragon’ the line

Friday, March 8, 2019 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Disney Pixar is the gold standard for feature animation films.

Disney Pixar feature animation films include “Toy Story,” “Up,” “Cars,” “Frozen,” “Finding Nemo,” “Wall-E” and “Coco.”

Disney Pixar’s feature animation film supremacy is challeged with DreamWorks Animation’s “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.”

“How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” is stunningly-beautiful, with a positive storyline that emphasizes values that shouldn’t offend any family that chooses to see it.
