Can a person cure him or herself just by being happy?

According to Dr. C. G. Rasool, D.O Ph.D., it sure does help.

Dr. Rasool, long-time general practitioner at Gundersen Palmer Lutheran Hospital and Clinics in West Union, is so sure that happiness can make everyone better, he wrote a book about it; “Happiness: A State of Mind.” 

“It doesn’t matter what we (doctors) do, if a person is not happy, the outcome is not good,” said Dr. Rasool.

The doctor would appear to know of what he speaks. Involved in the medical field for 50 years, he has been on the research end of the profession as well as the physical end, seeing up close and personal how the research plays out.

“I’ve spent 50 years in the field of medicine but for all that time in the back of my mind I was thinking there’s something missing big time,” Dr. Rasool pointed out.

Canadian Pacific announced its official schedule and lineup for its 2019 CP Holiday Train program and for the first time ever, among the stops on the festive tour is Ossian.

The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support."

Kicker – SW puts up 66 unanswered

Warriors start slow, finish strong against Panthers

By Zakary Kriener

It was a good thing the Warriors had their shovels on hand Friday night against Central Springs because they had quite the hole to dig themselves out of after the first several minutes of play.

“We put ourselves in a hole early with poor execution on offense and special teams,” said coach Jason Ohrt, referring to the 14-0 deficit that South Winn faced midway through the opening quarter.

Luckily, the Warriors got it straightened out to the tune of 66 unanswered points as they went on to pick up a big district win over the Panthers.
