“In giving up on preventive care, I’m just taking this line of thinking a step further: Not only do I reject the torment of a medicalized death, but I refuse to accept a medicalized life, and my determination only deepens with age. As the time that remains to me shrinks, each month and day becomes too precious to spend in windowless waiting rooms and under the cold scrutiny of machines. Being old enough to die is an achievement, not a defeat, and the freedom it brings is worth celebrating.”
–From Barbara Ehrenreich’s “Natural Causes,” 2018..

Flagler firefighter deploys to Oklahoma: Flagler County Firefighter Ronald Titus drove across the country on Independence Day to help fight wildfires in Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado. “It was short notice this time,” Titus, 33, said on Tuesday shortly after getting word of deployment. “I have to leave about 4 a.m. (on the Fourth of July).” Titus traveled with a crew of at least 20 from the Florida Forest Service and other agencies. It is his sixth consecutive deployment. “Firefighters continually train to be ready for these situations,” Flagler County Fire Rescue Chief Don Petito said. “Ronald Titus is very motivated, and enjoys being part of these specialized teams.” Deployments are typically 17 to 21 days. Flagler County hired Titus in January 2011. “He exemplifies the dedication of our firefighters,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “They serve are committed to helping people regardless of where they live.”
