While there are many health screenings relevant to both men and women, there are also tests specific to each gender. Two of the more important routine screenings women should be aware of are regular mammograms and pap tests, which can both diagnose risk factors for certain types of cancer.

Prenatal care important

Prenatal care:
Why it matters
You’ve checked and double checked — and then checked again just to be sure. And all the home pregnancy tests agree: You’re pregnant! Now it’s time for a flurry of phone calls to share the news with family and friends.
Just be sure at least one of those calls is to The Women’s Clinic — it’s time to make an appointment for your first prenatal checkup.

UTIs a problem for many

Urinary tract infections are a common bacterial infection that women can experience. Some women have frequent UTIs, which doctors may characterize as chronic. When UTIs occur repeatedly, they can be a cause of stress and embarrassment.
Recurrent urinary tract infections are defined as having at least two infections in six months or three infections in one year. Statistics indicate that once a woman has had two UTIs, she is 30 percent more likely than another woman to experience a third or fourth. Eighty percent of women who have had multiple UTIs will have recurrent episodes.

Irby, Marna.jpg

It’s Mother’s Day! A time for celebration and remembering.
William Ross Wallace, in the 1800s, wrote a poem, “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Rules the World.” Is there anyone who has not been influenced by their mother, if they knew her?
My mother still has a say in how I live my life. I always felt she was the strength behind my father’s ministry. When his human side tried to drag him down, she was there to remind him of the awesome God he served. In all my days, I never knew anyone whose faith was unshakable in the most trying times, and our family did have those, as every family does.

LPSB OKs RHS bid

Residents will likely begin seeing work done on the two Ruston High School projects that were approved and funded with a 10-year millage extension in April 2011.
The board approved plans to tear down the existing agriculture building at Ruston High School, build a new one and then build a new building for the New Tech @ Ruston program last year.
In March, the bid for the two projects came back with $4,054,000 from Don M. Barron Contractor, Inc. as the low bidder. This number was much higher than the proposed budget of $3,415,000. Board members at that time asked Architect Mike Walpole to revise the plans in such a way as to bring the cost down.
