Thank You to All Who Served

Thank You to All Who Served

Last week we at FEF were proud to celebrate the hard work that our graduates have done for the last 13 years.

We hope to never be, as FDR said, “Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy [who] forget in time that men have died to win them.”

“IRVING HARRIGAN” Made KLIF Radio “OUR” Station!

Believe me when I say that Gordon McLendon’s “KLIF-AM, 1190 on your radio dial,” was “the station” to which all my friends listened, except a few “holdouts” for KBOX-AM, 1480, which later became a “country station,” when most of us country kids in Forney listened to “pop radio.” O.

BASS CAN’T RESIST FROGS, ESPECIALLY MECHANICAL ONES!

Is there anything more exciting while fishing than watching a big bass attack a top water bait, strike it hard, miss getting hooked and come back and nail it again?

Not jerking the bait out of the strike zone is easier said than done when adrenaline is pumping!

Burn Awareness and Treatment Options

Burns do not discriminate and can affect men, women, children, and seniors. The Miami Burn Center advises that burn injuries are the nation’s third largest cause of accidental death, resulting in 6,000 fatalities each year and annually causing 300,000 serious injuries. Because burns are largely preventable, it is important to understand how they’re caused and how to prevent them. Understanding the treatment options available to get on the road to recovery can help burn victims and their families, too.
