DORY'S DIARY: A movie that keeps you up all night

Most of the time I live a rather sedate and uneventful life.

Once in a while I do something on the spur of the moment or a little out of the ordinary, maybe because of the Daphne in me.


HEALTH MATTERS: How healthy is your heart?

February is American Heart month so let’s look at that heart of yours. 


HEALTH CARE HAPPENINGS: Elgin Dental Clinic open for business and taking patients

The Elgin Dental Clinic is now open for business.

The clinic, which is operated by Dr. Eli Mayes, hosted an open house Monday at the Elgin Health Clinic at 1400 Division St.

The clinic is fully equipped with two chairs and state-of-the-art equipment to offer full spectrum dentistry services, including extractions, oral surgeries, X-rays, root canals, periodontal surgeries and care, dentures, crown and bridge work, general fillings and sealants for children. 

To make an appointment with either Mayes or the hygenist, call the Elgin Health Clinic at 541-437-6321.

Proper nutrition for the elderly can nourish the brain and even help to ward off dementia 

Lunch is often the largest meal of the day for the elderly, and so it is a great opportunity to introduce foods that nourish the brain and even help a person avoid dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, according to Expressions Director Kaylena Townsend of Wildflower Lodge.

ELGIN — Amanda Welch is the busy director of the Elgin Community Center, booking the meeting room and overseeing all summer pool activities and swimming lessons.

But during the pool’s off-season, she’s just as busy brainstorming her next big project for the new year. 


GARDEN GUIDE: Before you head out, get indoor plants ready

Before we put the spring growing season into full gear, this is a good time to take stock of your indoor plants.  

February is the month when you need to begin the addition of fertilizer to all your potted plants, but at half strength only. For cacti and succulents a good recommendation is one quarter strength but make sure you use only fertilizer specifically for these types of plants. Normal houseplant fertilizer contains too much nitrogen for your succulents. Even diluted, the chemistry won’t yield proper succulent growth.

DORY'S DIARY: Thanking someone who asks for nothing

Folks have asked me how I find something to write about each week, so I’ve given some thought to it but found no real answers.

Sometimes an idea comes that needs developing; sometimes I’ve been pleased or provoked by something happening in my life; sometimes I’m just sitting remembering anything that comes to mind; and, sometimes I consider something happening around me.


HEALTH CARE HAPPENINGS: GRH physical therapists earn specialty certification

Elizabeth Zastrow and Jeff Whinery, physical therapists in the Rehabilitation Therapy Department at Grande Ronde Hospital, have recently been certified as orthopedic specialists.

Hospital officials: Medicare rule impedes medicine, adds stress

While much of the nation has eyed mishaps with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Grande Ronde Hospital officials say there’s another rule that has them concerned.


DORY'S DIARY: One story leads to another

It’s funny how life goes along.  So much of it seems like coincidence...or is it some great plan.

What I’m referring to is the column I wrote for the La Grande Observer/Baker City Herald for Jan. 20 about George’s and my sons in their building an igloo in our yard many years ago.


What is macular degeneration?

Macular degeneration is a potentially blinding disease of the retina, the light-detecting tissue within the eye.

Compassionate care trademark of hospital’s home health service

Home health care has become a standard service through most hospitals. Home health care agencies deliver comprehensive and supportive care to the patient right in the home, either by a skilled professional who provides medical care or by caregivers or aids who are trained to help the patient with daily activities.


REAL PEOPLE: You're never too old to start program

DORY'S DIARY: Gazing at old photos causes tears to flow
