Midlothian welcomes
new nursing facility
Justin Tubbs
[email protected]
Ellis County seniors have a new place
to go to receive skilled nursing treatment.
On Thursday, the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce welcomed Midlothian
Healthcare Center to town with a grand
opening ribbon cutting.
The facility, which will hold 120 residents, has three living there now, and
specializes in nursing and rehabilitation.
The building, which began construction
nearly a year ago, will welcome more
residents if it passes routine state inspections.
Terence Boyd, the owner of MHC said
the company is family owned and operated. His brother and business partner,
Greg Loudermilk, a Midlothian resident,
will work as administrator. MHC is the
third nursing and rehabilitation center
Boyd has opened. He owns one in Fort
Worth and one in Houston.
The services offered to residents vary,
and MHC says that rehab programs are
customized to fit the specific needs of
each person.
“We are different from an assisted living center in that we have nurses working 24 hours,” Loudermilk said. “We have
some residents that will come and will
never be able to leave.”
Those people include diabetics that
aren’t able to take care of themselves and
people with injuries and health-related
issues they won’t recover from.
The facilities at MHC include a physical therapy room, state-of-the-art bedrooms for residents, a large dining room,
three day rooms for lounging and an outdoor area with shade cover and a fountain. One employee said there will be a
grilling area outside soon, as well. Part
of the dining facilities is a private dining
room for parties or visiting families.
Boyd said there will be many people
from Midlothian taking residence in the
new home, but he welcomes everybody.
“We will definitely take anyone God
gives us,” he said.
Lifestyle amenities include a beauty
and barber shop, an activity room and
a number of activities uncluding crafts,
cooking and baking, musical presentations and field trips.
Physician services include dental,
podiatry, audiology and optometry, and
nurses offer full services.
“The people we intend to serve are the
senior citizen population,” Loudermilk
said. “We look forward to having more
Boyd, who lives in Flower Mound, will
be moving to Midlothian.
“We love it here in Midlothian. My
family will be moving here. We have fallen in love with the area,” he said.
WAXAHACHIE – Ellis County Human Resources Director Ann Price
conducted a workshop on Thursday
regarding how the Affordable Care
Act may affect Ellis
medical coverage.
She also gave an
overview of the
record-keeping requirements for department heads attending the session,
which was held at
the county courtPerry
According to Paul Perry, county
commissioner, the one-hour workshop, which was attended by nearly 50
people, contained critical information
about the ACA, as it will be required
of all county employees.
“We are about to begin applying
ObamaCare and we are trying to be
compliant with the requirements,” he
“The workshop went well,” he
added. “There wasn’t any contention.
It wasn’t about whether or not you
agree with the Affordable Care Act. It
was informative and was a productive
He said Price led the session in a
lecture format and allowed for questions. Price is also a Texas Association of Counties Employee Benefits
“All department heads and anyone
who handles reporting for the county would benefit from attending the
workshop,” said Perry.
“It’s important that the county, as a
large employer, stay abreast of changes in federal healthcare laws which
might have an impact on our operations and our bottom line,” said Carol
Bush, county judge. “A failure to be in
compliance could result in penalties.
As such, we requested that the Texas
Association of Counties send a representative to update us on the relevant
The Affordable Care Act will require the county to offer medical benefits to employees who work an average
of 30 or more hours per week. A measurement period will be established as

its reach.
In addition to Azusa Street’s
role in modern Pentecostalism,
noted Towns, it’s also important
to remember that the movement
weakened many racial barriers.
A century later, Pentecostalism
remains one of Christianity’s
most powerful forces promoting
diversity in worship and leadership.
There isn’t much room for diversity “in what we call ‘one-cell’
churches, with about 85 members
or less,” he noted. “However, it’s
much easier for believers of different races to blend together in a
large, growing church. ... That’s a
trend we will need to keep watching in the future.”
Terry Mattingly is the director
of the Washington Journalism
Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and
leads the project to
study religion and the news.

by Bernice Bede Osol
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 19) -- You will be center stage today. Your intelligence will dazzle everyone,
and your energy and quick
wit will win approval. Let
your animated spirit lead
to positive attention from a
new admirer.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- A peaceful, relaxing
day will help to reduce the
stress you have been feeling. This is not a day for decision-making. Pampering
yourself will help free your
mind of conflict and worry.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -- Don’t be reluctant to
ask for help. You can’t do
everything yourself, and
your health will be jeopardized if you try. As much as
you want to help others, you
must draw a line.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -- Do what’s necessary to
protect your position. Someone you considered an ally
will turn out to be after your
job or another asset. Attention to detail and the ability
to multitask will keep you
on top.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) -- Stay in shape. Physical
and mental challenges will
stimulate your intellect and
energy. Too much idle time
will make you feel sluggish
and lethargic.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) -- Your emotions could be
quite ragged today. Heated
arguments are likely if you
are quick to take offense to
innocent remarks. Think before you speak.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- A joint venture will be a
good platform to help you
expand on your ideas. An
alliance with a trusted individual will bring the finan-
cial stability that you have
been trying to establish.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) -- If you are dissatisfied
with your current situation,
make a change. Waiting for
someone else to step up is
unrealistic and counter- productive. You know what your
strengths are, so take action.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -- Neglecting your responsibilities will turn out
to be quite costly. Do your
share without complaining.
Your reputation will suffer
if you don’t keep your promises.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -- There will be some necessary adjustments required
in order for you to get back
on track. Your progress will
slow if you are distracted by
what others are doing.
23-Dec. 21) -- A casual
conversation will lead to a
promising partnership. Be
clear about your expectations and limitations. Exaggerating now will backfire,
leaving you in an awkward
position when you can’t deliver.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- You can get your
desired results with diplomacy and tact. Heavy-handed tactics or ultimatums will
generate discord and disruption. Cooperation will be key
in forming a beneficial partnership.

The Lions expect to

The 2015 recruiting

“The athleticism of
this recruiting class is
the best we’ve had in
a while. They will increase our overall team
SAGU went 4-6 in 2014

‘Little Women’ charms at Ennis Public Theatre
J. Niswonger
Special to the EDN
Anyone who has read
Louisa May Alcott’s
“Little Women” will
appreciate the charm of Ennis
Public Theatre’s stage
adaptation. Running on
weekends through Feb.
15, Little Women presents a glimpse into 19th
century America and
the struggles, fears, sacrifices and hopes of four
sisters who are left for
a year without mother
and father.
Alcott’s novel addressed not only family life and coming
of age, but also dealt
with themes of social
expectations and gender roles. By carefully
crafting her characters,
Alcott adeptly presents
her own potentially
scandalous views of
womanhood in a manner that avoids the controversy that comes
with championing radical change. The talented
cast in EPT’s production effectively captures
this tension.
The beautifully rendered set enhances the
drama and draws the
audience into the action. Jordan Parks gives
a lively performance as
Jo, the strong and willful young tomboy who
has little use for social
conventions and seeks
to live life by her own
rules. The character of
Jo was patterned after
Alcott’s own life, and
represents many of
her iconoclastic views.
Jordan does an excellent job of inhabiting
Alcott’s feminist character.
In contrast to Jo, Meg
accepts the role that society places on her. As
the eldest of the four sisters, Meg already views
herself as a woman and
works to meet all preconceived expectations.
Krystal Strickland aptly
portrays Meg, who provides a necessary calm-
ing and motherly influence over Jo. Krystal’s
performance also compellingly conveys the
burden associated with
assuming the parental
role at such an early
The two youngest
sisters in Alcott’s story, Beth and Amy, are
played by Olivia Grayson and Cierra Chapman. Olivia does well as
the kind and sweet Beth,
presenting yet another
contrast to Jo’s brash
and sometimes hot-tempered demeanor. Cierra
portrays the youngest
sister, Amy, with great
aplomb, creating clever
comic effect in the presentation of her vain,
self-centered character.
Amy strives to excel,
but falls short with humorous blunders.
The rest of the allfemale cast also stay
true to Alcott’s characters and present the
audience with a warmhearted tableau of an or-

dinary family struggling
and triumphing over difficult times. The play is
suitable for all ages, and
provides the audience
with ample opportunity
to reflect on the vicissitudes of life and how one
might deal with them.
Show times are 7:30
Beauty is ‘Skin Deep’ in new play
Kelly Kovar
Special to the EDN
A romantic comedy,
“Skin Deep,” opens at
7:30 p.m., Friday, at Theatre Rocks at 505 N.W.
Main St.
The play is a lighthearted affair, with a
about society’s view
of beauty and worth.
It was written by playwright Jon Lonoff.
Leading the cast is
accomplished stage veteran Lisa Rosewell, who
has delighted audiences
by her work in Steel
Magnolias and The Lion
in Winter.
Maureen Mulligan, a
lonely woman, who is
nudged into giving romance one last chance
by her attractive sister, Sheila, played by
Debra Hinson. It seems
only natural that Sheila
would set up Maureen
on a blind date.
Years before, Maureen had sacrificed a

the lovely man to her
sister Sheila, who subsequently married him.
played by Larry LeMaster, is a keystone
character. His goldenboy looks led to Sheila’s
desperation to keep him
interested, and to Maureen’s wistful remembrances of “what might
have been.”
Enter blind date, Joe
Spinelli, who sets everyone on their heels. Joe
is a breath of fresh air
in Maureen’s life. But,
how much fresh air can
she take? Is she willing
to risk her staid existence and gamble on
love again?
“Skin Deep” will explore all the questions
raised, and the audience will be brought
along for the ride of romance, decisions, and
Film actor Michael
Hall won the part of
Joe. His most recent
project was The Merchant, a western horror,
feature-length film shot
on location in Gilmer,
Texas. He is represented by Linda McAlister
talent. Hall said he is excited to be back on stage
and making his debut at
Theatre Rocks.
The tone of “Skin
Deep” is pleasant and
the laughs plentiful.
