    Twenty-five years ago this month, President Ronald Reagan told the nation he’d been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. “I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life,” he wrote in a letter addressed to his “Fellow Americans,” dated November 5, 1994. Reagan wrote that he and his wife, Nancy, decided to disclose his condition in hopes it would increase attention for the disease that slowly, but surely, robs the mind of its memories. “In opening our hearts, we hope this might promote greater awareness of this condition,” he wrote. “Perhaps it will encourage a clearer...

    Some news just in from Senator Flake's office this afternoon regarding the Army's Force Structure decisions and how they affect Fort Huachuca. The delegation briefing notice from the Pentagon's Army Readiness Liaison reported that Fort Huachuca will have a loss of only 31 'slots' or 'spaces' by 2019 as a result of the military's reduction in size. The notice indicated the number of solders on the Fort in 2012 was 2590 and will be reduced to 2559 by the year 2019. Very little additional information was contained in the notice. I'm sure over the next day or so more details...
