They Call Me Ranger Ray

We have been invited by the History Department to a presentation by Ramiro "Ray" Martínez .

Martínez was a young officer with the Austin Police Department in August 1966 when he, another officer and a civilian made their way to the observation deck of the University Texas Tower and ended the carnage by infamous sniper Charles J. Whitman. Martínez continued his career in law enforcement and became a Texas Ranger. After retiring from the Rangers, he served as a Comal County justice of the peace. He now lives in New Braunfels.

Immunizations - Age Well, Live Well!

Connie Assiff from the Harris County Public Health Department gave a introduction to many of the activities the department performs. For us as seniors, she and Dr. Haynie, concentrated on how we can benefit from immunizations. Whether it's for travel reasons or being around the grandchildren, there is a need to be vaccinated. We all should get a flu shot every year.

You can see Connie's presentation here.

Holocaust Museum - Pinochet's Chile

Michelle Tovar from Holocaust Museum Houston gave us a great presentation on Pinochet's Chile; from Pinochet's rise to power and those that helped him to the atrocities his government committed on his own people. To think, all of this just happened in the 1970s, not so long ago.
