Texas paramedic looks back on 41 years in EMS -

Monday, June 19, 2017

EMSSoon afterward, Gandy and his pals heard about a new course called "Emergency Medical Technician," with 10 times the training of basic first aid. Gandy got certified, then joined the faculty of Paris (Texas) Junior College’s EMT program, where he embraced the commitment needed to teach EMS effectively.Gene Gandy. (Courtesy photo)Related articlesRelated content sponsored by"You have to master the curriculum," Gandy says. "You have to know the information backwards and forwards, in much greater depth than you thought you’d ever need as an EMS provider. That means you have to do an awful lot of supplemental reading."If you use one textbook to teach from, I don’t care how good it is, it’s still just one book. If you said you were going to get through medical school or even nursing school with one textbook, people would laugh at you, yet that’s how we teach our EMTs, AEMTs and paramedics."A good instructor has to go way above that. You need to look at the educational standards and make yourself an expert on every single point. Then you have to practice teaching. Hook onto somebody who can be a mentor who’ll let you break in gradually."From litigator to educatorIn 1981, Gandy became a paramedic – the only one in Honey Grove – and continued to volunteer. "I was basically on call all the time," he says. As EMS occupied more and more of his life, Gandy knew he was headed for a career change."I decided to become a full-time medic in 1989," he recalls. "I’d been very involved in EMS at the state level: writing regulations and exam questions, serving on the Governor’s committee – things like that."I just didn’t like practicing law anymore. It’s a high-stress business. I was fortunate to have done well enough not to have to worry about income so I figured, what the hell, I’m going to do what I like to do."Gandy didn’t have to wait long for the right EMS opportunity. "I got a call that same year from the regional guy in the state EMS office. He said Tyler (Junior College) was looking to start a two-year paramedic program, and thought I ought to apply."Well, they picked me, and we built that program into something quite succ

2 brews ready for toasting church's history - Daily Times Herald - Carroll Daily Times Herald

Monday, June 19, 2017

March 13, 2017JeffersonAccording to legend in Cedar Township, the parishioners of St. Patrick Catholic Church were explicitly told in the days after a fire on June 15, 1919, not to rebuild.Not with St. Columbkille Catholic Church a mere 4 miles away in Churdan.Then again, the Irish are notoriously stubborn.The church was promptly rebuilt.The Irish are so stubborn, in fact, that now more than 20 years after the Catholic diocese closed St. Patrick’s as an active worship site, it’s still a hub of activity in northern Greene County.That’s worth drinking to — and for this St. Patrick’s Day, one of the parish’s own has crafted two styles of beer to celebrate the church’s rich history.“It’s a great cause, and I love the history of St. Patrick’s,” said Greg Carey, a native of Cedar Township who brewed 288 bottles of his own beer for the church to sell during March 17 festivities. “It was a great run through history trying to come up with names.”Revelers at a fish fry following Mass that evening will be able to buy two brews Carey has bottled for the occasion

Church offers counselling to children affected by Grenfell Tower fire - Catholic Herald Online

Monday, June 19, 2017

Fr Gerard Skinner, the parish priest, was so inundated with donations that within hours there was no storage space remaining.He left a message on his telephone to tell well-wishers that the church was “at capacity.” He said he was also overwhelmed by offers of practical assistance.The fire in Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, in the west of the capital, is believed to have started in the early hours of the morning.It spread rapidly because it ignited the flammable cladding that encased the tower block, and many trapped tenants jumped from the building to escape the flames and smoke.About 80 people are being treated in hospital and about 17 of them are described as being in “critical” condition.

Lowell funeral home places obituary to honor 129 dead in Paris - Lowell Sun

Monday, June 19, 2017

LOWELL -- The names of the recently deceased appeared above their obituaries on page 12 of Sunday's edition of The Sun, along with a single headline that didn't contain a name. "Paris," the headline simply stated. The obituary contained below was for at least 129 adults and children slain in a series of terror attacks in the City of Lights on Friday night. At least 350 others were injured. The obituary was written, submitted and paid for by the McKenna-Ouellette Funeral Home, which spent about $400 to honor those lost in France. "We serve a lot of families with French heritage," Funeral Director Ron D'Amato said. "But also, this story affected everyone, so we said, 'We need to do something to honor and remember the victims and their families.'" D'Amato said the funeral home initially posted the obituary on its Facebook page and elsewhere on social media, but decided to pay for an obituary in print in The Sun because many people they serve don't use social media. "We remind the world that each and every person that died in these senseless acts of terror individually and universally light a luminous candle that will remain where their beautiful souls h
