Cortez deployed to Iraq war zone

He is the son of Eliosa and Armando Cortez of Pecos and has two sisters, Sandra and Irma Cortez.

Youth sports injuries higher

Sports may be hazardous to the health of our youth.

"Of the 30 million young people involved in organized sports, 10 percent of them will suffer a sports-related injury," said Dr. Albert Hergenroeder, professor of adolescent and sports medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

According to Hergenroeder, many new injuries occur because past injuries are not properly rehabilitated. Athletes often suffer loss of strength, flexibility and endurance when injuries are ignored. Watch out for "star" athletes who are more likely to return to competition before being fully recovered.
