Dear Annie:

My granddaughter, “Melanie,” thinks that she has a half-sister 24 years younger.

Melanie believes that her father, long divorced from her mother, was asked by his former unattached girlfriend with whom he remained friendly, to “help” her have a child before it becomes biologically too late.

As most healthcare providers were preparing to celebrate the Declaration of Independence on July 4, Southeast Texas Medical Associates (SETMA) had a surprise laboratory inspection by the Joint Commission. Formerly known as the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), the Joint Commission founded in 1949 is the oldest healthcare organization in the world.

Writing recently about what our faces say about us led me to another topic. My daughter DeAnna, who works for an airline, has always been funny by nature. She could be a standup comedian if she wanted. Because of her personality and length of experience, she is often brought passengers with problems or questions and has diffused many serious situations. One I will never forget occurred at Jack Brooks Regional in Beaumont.
