Dr. Rebecca Jankowski: Don't let slow healing wounds go untreated

These problems are very serious and growing daily. Our stats show that from 2000 to 2050 we will see an increase of diabetic patients grow 165 percent. We also know that 30 percent of untreated wounds result in amputation. 50 percent of those amputated patients will die within 5 years. Lake Pointe serves a community population of 546,858 people. 51,405 of those people are diabetic. Roughly about 10 percent of those diabetic citizens need wound services.

Do you support legalizing liquor sales for off-premise consumption in Rowlett?

After a successful petition drive in the fall by Rowlett FIR$T, working with Texas Petition Strategies Inc., a local option election for legalizing packaged liquor sales was placed on the ballot for May 9. If it passes, supporters say, large stores such as Total Wine & More or Specs would open in Rowlett before its neighbors can legalize such sales, potentially increasing tax revenues here by $500,000.
