Heed the warnings of hypertension

I took care of a young man in his 30's who had uncontrolled high blood pressures that overwhelmed his kidneys. It caused two heart attacks and a mini stroke. He was very saddened (as am I) by the fact that this could have been prevented. He encouraged me to share "what you need to know."

Literary Las Vegas: Eddie Lee

Thomas Larkin was more than a friend, he was a brother to Chicago private investigator Adrian Cain. It was Larkin, a gifted psychologist, who helped Cain face the demons lurking in his mind, remnants of his time as a Marine in Afghanistan. One of those demons, a ghost Cain thought he'd sent to a well-deserved hell himself, returns with a dark agenda in Las Vegas author Eddie Lee's sci-fi thriller "Nemesis." Lee is scheduled to speak as part of the Desert Author Series from 2:30 to 3:20 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Sahara West Library, 9600 W. Sahara Ave. Lee also plans to sign copies of his science fiction thriller "Nemesis" at 1 p.m. Sept. 19 at the 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd. Barnes & Noble.
