Started life-saving discussions
Thank you for helping your readers understand the complexities of eating disorders [Eating Disorders: A quiet mental-health crisis by Andria Frankfort, February 2018] and for referring your readers to the National Eating Disorders Association. Eating disorders are the No. 1 killer of any mental illness, yet most of us don’t know the warning signs or who to turn to for help. Feb. 26-March 4 is National Eating Disorders Awareness week, so your article was certainly timely. I hope your readers will share this important article with family and friends. I know that it already opened life-saving dialogue for some of your readers.
One of best stories on subject
This is one of the best, most comprehensive articles I have read on this topic [Shaking the Family Tree: New ways to research your roots, by Cheryl Ursin, February 2018]. Excellent job! We will be sharing this with all the legislators next session. I hope you will write more on this niche, but very important, issue.

All ready for Asheville now
A is for Arts, Architecture and Americana in Authentic Asheville [Travel Buzz, by Tracy L. Barnett, March 2018] – at the top of my “must see” list! What a fantastic story about this gem of a town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’m ready to pack my bags. Equally stunning is the cover photo [West University Buzz, March 2018] of our friends, Mark and Martha Hablinski. Well done, Buzz peeps!
Editor’s note: Thank you, Claire. We’re ready to pack our bags for Asheville, too, after reading Tracy’s travel story.
Tackling human trafficking
Thank you, The Buzz Magazines, for hosting Crime Stoppers and for featuring a subject that is not always discussed so candidly and honestly [Courageous Conversations: Human Trafficking in Houston, Buzzworthy blog, February 2018]. I've always been a fan of The Buzz, but now I'm an over-wowed fan of your heart and commitment to our city and our citizens!
Editor’s note: Thank you, Tracy, for attending our Courageous Conversations luncheon co-hosted with Crime Stoppers of Houston in February and for your kind words. A powerful panel of speakers discussed human trafficking in Houston.
Ready for the photo contest
My daughter enjoys entering your photo contest every year.
