Senior News

“O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!” were the only words I knew to this holiday song as I sang to my six month old grandson, Judd. His eyes filled with wonder and excitement watching the lights on the tree, grabbing at the branches. He was not worried about the words. Such delight in the eyes of a child. What a wonderful season of joy and hope.

Maybe we are all finding a little more joy at this time of year. It is certainly present at the Senior Center. It is a great place to come and spread some cheer and share lunch with friends or family. It is good to hear happy conversations and laughter.

Christmas gift ideas for kids to stimulate learning

Holiday gift giving can be a good opportunity to encourage a child’s interest in science, technology, engineering and math – the STEM fields.

“Good toys have staying power: They engage,” said Dr. Iolani Connolly, director of the Science and Engineering Education Center (SEEC) at The University of Texas at Dallas. “A good toy does not offer answers; it stimulates questions and presents problems for solving.”

Through its Contact Science Lending Library and exhibits, SEEC provides educational materials to more than 135,000 learners in grades K-12 annually, with the aim of encouraging science and math exploration through free play.

Where are they now?...Cory Dear

Cory Dear is the All-American Boy. In fact, Jim and DeAnn Dear raised a couple of outstanding kids. Folks may remember the article about his successful sibling a few months ago. Cory gives up nothing to his brother Cuyler.

Dear graduated from Perryton High School in 1999. He was an athletic and academic standlout. There seemed to be nothing that he could not do to perfection. The Dear brothers were the kind of kids that all of us as young parents dreamed our kids would emulate. The task was almost impossible.

After graduating from PHS, Dear attended the “mecca of higher education” and earned a degree in architecture from Texas A&M University. He then attended the University of Texas for graduate school. The graduate program sent him on an internship to Lisbon, Portugal. Dear was highly recruited coming out of the University of Texas graduate program.
