Mosby named officer of month

Nancy Mosby has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month for November at the Reeves County Detention Center.

Mosby has been employed at the Reeves County Detention Center since April 5, 1999. She is married to Linvel Mosby and is the proud mother of three children.

"Mrs. Mosby has demonstrated exceptional proficiency in the performance of her duties as a correctional officer," said RCDC Warden Rudy Franco. "She has excellent communication skills when dealing with inmate," he said.

Mosby supervises inmates in the living units, enforcing all the rules of the institution at the same time maintaining a professional attitude, according to Franco.

Mosby has performed in many of the responsible positions at the RCDC and continues to be an inspiration to our newer staff, he added.

"Nancy uses good judgement and is a hard worker. She is dependable and punctual, and is a very responsible employee," said Franco.

"We are proud to have selected Mrs. Mosby as Correctional Officer of the Month and wish her continued success in her career with the Reeves County Detention Center," he said.

Plan holidays slowly, carefully

Realistic expectations can help you avoid a holiday letdown.

"Running from a party to a recital, to the mall to wrap up holiday shopping and then home can cause a great deal of stress," said Dr. Michael Cox, a clinical psychologist with Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

It's important to plan time to relax, exercise, and socialize with those you love, especially young children. Simple activities like watching a holiday video, throwing the football, or baking cookies can create lasting memories.

The holidays are not a time to settle family differences. Try to avoid confrontations by not bringing up topics that will cause tension around the dinner table or when everyone gathers to open gifts. Also, keep the length of visits to a minimum. Overstaying your welcome to the point of imposing on family members can cause hurt feelings.

Cox also notes that spending enormous amounts of money on holiday items opens the door for marital spats. It's important for couples to sit down before the holiday season and map out a budget, detailing how much they can afford to spend then stick to the budget.
