(NAPSI)—Here’s what we know: more than 29 million Americans have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010. We also know that one in four people with diabetes is unaware that he or she has the disease. If left undiagnosed or un treated, diabetes can lead to serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. That’s why the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), a joint program of the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wants people with diabetes to understand that having diabetes increases their chances for heart disease.

I hope I’m correct in assuming most southern Arizonans, specifically voters in Pima and Cochise Counties don’t read The Republic or give much credence to its opinions or recommendations. My suspicion of The Republic is heightened by its untrue, i.e., false, statement regarding Col. Retired McSally’s USAF career. At “26 years as an Air Force officer” is quite simply not true, as even McSally has admitted to me. She served 22 years as an officer after having obtained her undergraduate degree in the normal 4 years at the USAF Academy. During those 4 years she wore a cadet’s uniform but was not a member, much less a commissioned officer, of the USAF. Granted, McSally, no stickler for the whole truth, is wont to mention her 26 years of service, perhaps figuring that the actual 22 don’t give her sufficient gravitas. What I’d like to know is: why did she retire as a bird colonel at 44, without an obvious career path to which to turn? Would it have been the realization that she’d never trade the eagle for a general’s star(s)?

Summer has officially begun. The calendar might not say so, but I know it’s true because not two days after school let out my seven-year-old son came to me and uttered those three dreaded words: “Mom, I’m bored.” My threat of additional chores to resolve the boredom was only a temporary fix; I also devised a summer bucket list. Our summer bucket list suggests 50 things to do before school resumes. I thought I’d share it here for those of you who are looking for ways to avoid hearing those same three words uttered by your own child(ren). Good luck!
