As we begin to age, self-care becomes even more important than ever before.  Unhealthy behaviors at a younger age, such as not eating right, come back to haunt us when we begin to age.

How can we slow down the aging process?  Where can we find the Fountain of Youth? 

Angie O’Pry, owner of Fiesta Nutrition Center in Monroe, believes that the Fountain of Youth “is right in the palms of your own hands.”  She explained that it is “all about our mind creating a situation where we feel young, and if we feel it, then we can BE it.”

KEDM Public Radio began the 2017 “Give the Joy of Learning” campaign with a book drive at Lexington Elementary School.

Students, parents and the community can bring new or “like new” books to Lexington or the United Way by December 8. The books will be distributed in December to students in schools in the City of Monroe as well as Ouachita, Lincoln and Union parishes as part of the year-end “Give the Joy of Learning” fundraising campaign for KEDM.
