  • COVID-19 relief

    Supervisor Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated Jun 16, 2021

    Last week, the Board of Supervisors voted to allocate over $600 million from the American Rescue Plan Act. These dollars, which have been distributed by the federal government, are intended for COVID-19 relief.

  • Kicking It while caring for my mouth

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal, Special to The Village News|Updated Jun 16, 2021

    A couple of things I notice when meeting someone is their eyes and their smile. Those two features pretty much dictate how a person is feeling. Quoted in Matthew 6:22-24: “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” Centuries later, William Shakespeare wrote, “To thee I do commend my watchful soul, ere I let fall the window of mine eyes,” in Richard III. This century we just say, “the eyes are the window to the soul.” Th...

    Providing relief and dignity to terminally ill patients suffering from extreme pain can run into legal and bureaucratic roadblocks.

He wanted to spend his remaining time with his 9-year-old son a...
