The gold that glittered … Many special agents volunteering for the Art Museum of Southeast Texas Go for the Gold fundraiser this year — complete with Goldfinger theme — did an outstanding job selling almost all of the 450 tickets available. Last Thursday evening, March 10, agents, guests and maybe even some spies descended upon the museum for the reverse drawing toward $10,000 in gold coins.

An old thought from my childhood crossed my mind last night, and I have given it considerable mulling over time since it did. I have now reached the age when I can think about something for as long as I want, often without interruption or change of course, since my children are grown and gone from home, and I am not working full time. I like this newfound ability very much.

Without question, the ability to prescribe controlled substances electronically is a major step forward in healthcare quality and safety. Yet, only 5 percent of physicians in the United States currently can perform this function; all can do it legally but only 5 percent are taking advantage of the ability.

You have GOT to go there this weekend. I’m talking about the Beaumont Farmers Market at the athletic complex on College Street in Beaumont. The BFM is a locally run, seasonal, open-air market that runs roughly February through December. The hours are 8-11 a.m. but the crowd usually gets there early for the best “pickings.”
