Knight & Miscellaneous
by Vern Perry, NSC President
Originally published on  February 14, 2013 - reprinted with permission

  Knight is at home recovering from a broken right hip.  On December 26th he fell while playing catch in his yard with some neighborhood kids.

  As we all know, injuries sometimes are easy to get but very hard to recover from.  

   He is at home and can now walk (with the aid of his new walker) two blocks or so but he still can't safely drive his stick-shift automobile.

   His right side is his preferred side to lay on while sleeping.  His doctor wrongly advised him that it would be okay to sleep on this, the injured side.  The morning after he did this he was in tremendous paid but the doctor felt great.

   He expects to be able to get around in a couple of months.  I am sure we all wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him attending the meetings as soon as possible.


  The problems we are having with the Las Vegas Constable and Assemblyman Brooks are ridiculous.  They are directly related to not voting smart.


  Are any of you having problems understanding the flashing yellow left turn signals?  Take the AARP 5 Alive Course.
