James reminds us that life is nothing more than a vapor, here one minute and gone the next.Â We make big plans, talk of big activities, and schedule a lot of appointments only to realize that those appointments are â€śtentative.â€ťÂ The plans we make are only temporary and for the most part uncertain.Â Life is very unpredictable, and little is sure.Â It has been said that the best laid plans of mice and men are never for certain.Â

A special-called meeting of the Nolan County Commissioners was held on Tuesday, in which approval was given toward the purchase of a financial package software upgrade for the county auditor and county treasurer.
The current system has been in place since 1985, thus becoming outdated and no longer having the ability for significant upgrades. After reviewing up to five different software options, the software provided by STW, Inc. was selected.
Future hospital facility plans were discussed during the August meeting of the Nolan County Hospital District board of directors.
Among the items, a follow-up report on the Cardiac Rehab project was given by David White of McKinstry, the company overseeing the construction. After receiving feedback from the board, around $83,000 was cut on the project, bringing the total cost of the building to just over $1.7 million.
