Many of his projects were featured in the SPJ with cover stories, one of which was shown on the front cover. Roland searched far and wide, without success, to find a handbook covering many of the topics covered in his book. That further inspired him to create one that could possibly help independent pharmacists make better choices.

We interview - Danny Vela owner of Lee’s Pharmacy in McAllen, TX and member of the Rio Grande Valley Independent Pharmacy Association, who explains the situation in Texas (& throughout the country) that pharmacies have been facing when the state began its transition to managed care for Medicaid. Pharmacy benefit management (PBM) companies were brought in to oversee the state’s prescription drug program.
Vela’s observation about the situation: “States that have tried this in the past, are now going back to the way they used to do things before. States that are going back, are using the [old] Texas vendor drug program model to go back to. So logic tells you that we had a great program in place. Why did we mess with it?”

Passionate, Intimate, and Life Changing is the best way to describe the virtuous and dynamic spirit of Kristin Rader. With a life full of charisma and passion to worship, she only knew one way to fully serve God, with her voice.
With years of experience and vocal training, Kristin has given her life to perfect her instrument. After High School she knew she wanted to pursue higher education and that no other path would leave her more fulfilled than training herself in her passion. Kristin went on to earn a collegiate vocal scholarship and was given the opportunity to sing in multiple countries around the world such as Ireland, England, Wales, Bahamas, and Mexico. After graduating from Lee University, she had the privilege of being apart of of the prestigious Chattanooga Symphony Opera Chorus.
As a teenager, Kristin found herself struck in the midst of tragedy. Her life was turned upside down with news that her father was diagnosed with Cancer. He was taken to be with the Lord three weeks later. Before he left her however, he imparted wisdom that will forever be engraved in her heart. After this tragedy, Kristin's mother went through a period of deep dark depression. She was now left with the emptiness of loosing her father, and dealing with the effects of her mothers struggles.
Attempting to cope with the devastation of her fathers death and mothers trials, she had no other place to turn other than God. Through the wisdom of her father, and the strength of her Heavenly Father, Kristin used this tragedy to strengthen her faith and hope in the Lord.
Through these trials, Kristin was given an amazing opportunity. She now has the ability to use her story as a means of expression to show triumph and victory over dark circumstances.
With life focused on music, she had one dream, to use her gifts to reach believers and unbelievers. “I want my music to be an outlet of encouragement to everyone who hears it.
