Natalie Sfeir, a sophomore speech/language pathology major from Beaumont, envisions a future where people with dementia are no longer ostracized for their disease.

“My ultimate goal is to help prevent institutionalization of those with dementia. I want to play a role in providing a better life for them — a life where they can go about doing normal activities, a life where they can remain, to some degree, independent,” she said.

Nissan’s redesigned Armada

With the introduction of the all-new second-generation Armada full-size SUV, the last piece of Nissan’s transformation of its SUV and crossover lineup falls into place. The 2017 Armada is the largest and most powerful vehicle in the Nissan portfolio, earning it flagship status. Unlike the original Armada, which was based on the Nissan Titan full-size pickup, the new-generation design traces back to Nissan’s popular global vehicle, the Patrol.

Q. I would like to know if the property manager of an apartment project can refuse to give the tenant the owner’s name if the tenant requests it.

A. According to the Texas Property Code, the landlord or property manager must disclose the name and address of the holder of record title after you request it. If the information is not disclosed, you could be entitled to $100 plus one month’s rent in damages, as well as attorney’s fees and court costs. I suggest you send your request by certified mail.

Hello, friends. My name is Two. Yes, just like the number. My owner passed away, and I’m sad but hopeful that I will find a new home. I’m a very loving and gentle cat who is 5 years old. I’m up to date on all of my vaccinations, neutered and litter-box trained. I have a laid-back and lovable disposition. The perfect day for me would involve a couple hours of sun bathing, playing with my favorite mouse toy and getting loved on by my human. I used to live in a home with other cats and was previously an indoor/outdoor cat. Please come and visit me at the shelter!
