Merritt earns law degree

Center in Houston, Mollie Elizabeth Merritt received a Doctor of Jurisprudence
degree from South Texas College of Law.
Miss Merritt is the daughter of Bill Merritt, a 1965 graduate of Pecos
High School, and Debbie Merritt. They currently reside in Plano.
She is the granddaughter of Woody W. Merritt of Pecos.
Also in attendance at the ceremony was her sister, Melinda Merritt of
Austin, grandparents Mr. and Mrs. W.F. Nutting of Dallas, her aunt, Elizabeth
Fleming of Baton Rouge, and her cousin, Hillary Hinson of College Station.
Water exercises help seniors
One of the hottest trends for seniors is "all wet." Water-based exercise
is a great way for older people to experience the benefits of working out
without the impact associated with activities such as jogging or tennis.
Sports medicine experts at Baylor College of Medicine say the water
provides a safe, effective medium for conditioning and toning. The types
of exercise range from swimming and aerobics to strength and flexibility
training. Whether the goal is to improve your health or simply add some
activity to your life, the pool is a great place to start.
