October 4, 2017 -- Frederic Sackrider Remington was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the American Old West, specifically concentrating on scenes from the last quarter of the 19th century in the Western United States and featuring images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry, among other figures from Western culture.

“Left in the lurch” describes a French board game where players “suffered a lurch” if they were left in a hopeless position from which they couldn’t win. We had Health Matters see patients in our region who are left in the lurch, with declining health resources and a diminishing life expectancy. We document this, talk about insurance companies left in the lurch, Alzheimer’s families left in the lurch, and then we end on a proud note, with a Native American tribe receiving a patent for a billion-dollar drug.
