  • Once upon a time in a fairy-tale world, as seen in the original Walt Disney animated films, there lived a lovely young girl who was friends with the animals and birds, and they served her every wish. She knew that one day she would meet her prince, and they would live happily ever after.

    As in most fairy tales, there is a bad, bad person. This is Narissa, the wicked queen, stepmother to her prince. If the prince gets married, the queen would lose all her powers. So she plots to keep them apart with the help of Nathaniel, traitor to the prince.

  • “Spunk” dramatizes the brief tales of three African-American women who have courage, one tale leads to death but freedom, another is a jocular tale of spiteful revenge, and the other is a love triangle which ends happily. As the program states, the time is “Round about long ’go;” the place is “O, way down nearby.” The narrators are Blues Speak Woman and Guitar Man. Sometimes they interact with the scenes; other times they become a Greek chorus who comment on the action, or pronounce judgments.

  • News reports of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) outbreaks in otherwise healthy schoolchildren have parents and teachers concerned. Twenty years ago, MRSA was usually confined to weakened patients in long-term care facilities and hospitals, according to Ricky Reiter, R.N., Flaget Memorial Hospital Director of Infection Control.
