COOKE COUNTY – Key Note
Speaker for this year’s Cooke County United Way Power of Purse event
to be held on Thursday, August
11th at the Gainesville Civic Center is Retired Major General Mary
L. Saunders, USAF.
Major General Mary Saunders
is the current Executive Director
of the Leadership Institute at Texas
Woman’s University. The program
was established to prepare students
to succeed in an increasingly global community. She was the Vice
Director for the Defense Logistics
Agency, Ft. Belvoir VA, with a
workforce of over 22,000 military
and civilian personnel located both
overseas and in 48 states in the
United States. The organization
contracted for food, fuel, uniforms,
medical supplies, and 95% of spare
parts for all military services including airplanes, ships, tanks, and missile systems. The contracting result
was over $28 billion in sales.
Two years earlier, she served in
Washington D.C. at the Pentagon
where she was the second female
African American in the Air Force
selected to the rank of general, and
as the first female general officer
selected as the Director of Transportation for the Air Force. In this
capacity she provided guidance for
32,000 active duty and civilian personnel and was responsible for a
fleet of 115,000 vehicles valued at
$3.8 billion.
Maj. Gen. Saunders is a native
Texan, born in Nacogdoches and
educated in Houston. She earned
her Bachelor of Science degree in
Social Work from Texas Woman’s
University in Denton, Texas and
her Master of Arts in Guidance and
Counseling from Rider University
in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Maj.
General Saunders attended the Air
War College at Maxwell Air Force
Base in Alabama. She completed
the National Security Leadership
Course at John Hopkins University
in Baltimore, Maryland and the
Leadership Development Program
at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Maj. Gen. Saunders is a member of the following professional
associations: the American Association of University Women, the
Air Force Association, and the Air
Force Logistics Officer Association. General Saunders was named
a Distinguished Alumni of Texas
Woman’s University, and currently
serves on the Advisory Board for
the Dallas Women’s Foundation.
In 2012, Maj. Gen. Saunders was
inducted into the Texas Women’s
Hall of Fame. On April 30, 2015,
Maj. Gen. Saunders was one of six
recipients of the Maura Women
Helping Women award from the
Dallas Women’s Foundation. The
award honors women who have improved the lives of women and girls
in North Texas. In addition, Major
General Saunders accepted an appointment as an Executive Board
member of the Circle Ten Council
of the Boy Scouts of America. Two
leadership awards have been named
in Maj. Gen. Saunders’ honor and
Cooke County Deputies Receive Lifesaving Award – On Thursday, July 14, Sheriff Terry Gilbert
presented several of his law enforcement officers with a Lifesaving Award for their part in rescuing a
woman and her 10-month old baby from rushing flood waters on June 2, 2016. Pictured above from
left to right: Sheriff Terry Gilbert, Deputy David Walters, Corporal Justin Stamps, Deputy Marc Parsons with his K9 Lara, and Cooke County Fire Marshal Ray Fletcher. (The Weekly News Photos)
are presented annually. The “Excellence in Leadership Award Scholarship” is presented to a Federal Civil
Servant Employee, and the “Air
Force Logistics Officers Association Chapter Distinguished Service
Award.”
“Cooke County United Way is
honored to present Major General
Mary L. Saunders as our keynote
speaker. This announcement has
already generated excitement and
a great deal of anticipation about
this year’s event. She is an inspiring speaker which fits our theme
of ‘enCOURAGE’perfectly”, notes
Kristi Rigsby Power of the Purse
committee member. United Way
presented its first Power of the Purse
program as a luncheon in September of 2012 with guest speaker Adrienne Bankert, who at the time, was
the CBS Channel 11 co-anchor of
the DFW Morning Show and who
is now with ABC in Los Angeles.
Due to overwhelming attendance,
the event had to be changed to a
dinner and a larger venue. It has
grown over the last four years into a
sell-out event. Power of the Purse
provides a collaborative forum for
women of all ages who want to
significantly improve the quality of
life in Cooke County through leadership giving, advocacy and volunteering. It’s about joining with likeminded women to be a strong voice
and make a difference in meeting
needs in the community.
Susan Hughes, Power of the
Purse 2016 Chair comments “It
is an inspiring event created to
‘enCOURAGE’ women to unite
to make a difference! The Cooke
County United Way Board of Directors, upon recommendation
of the event planning committee,
as approved the designation of all
event proceeds to support Education initiatives. With years of experience, our United Way knows
how to host an amazing dinner accessorized with all things ladies love
– fabulous food, delectable dessert,
a sensational speaker … and of
course, purses!” Ms. Hughes continues “we are currently confirming
our table designers and event sponsors so anyone interested should
contact the Cooke County United
Way offices as soon as possible. The
tickets are now on sale and I would
like to emphasize that we have sold
out for the past two years, so get
your tickets now!” Contact Cooke
County United Way at 940-6651793.
Gainesville Police Host
ALERRT Training at GHS
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville
Police Department, in conjunction with the Gainesville Independent School District, is hosting an
Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT)
Level I Train-the-Trainer Course
that is scheduled to begin Monday,
July 18, 2016 at the Gainesville
High School. Law enforcement
personnel from around North Texas will be attending the course. In
addition to the Train-the Trainer
course, we will also be conducting two ALERRT Level I courses
the following week. This training
is being provided at no cost to the
participants due to a Bureau of
Justice Assistance (BJA) grant.
The Advanced Law Enforcement
Rapid Response Training Center at
Texas State University
ALERRT provides the best, research-based active shooter training in the nation. From the 1966
Tower shooting at the University of
Texas, to the coordinated terrorist
attacks in Mumbai, India in 2008,
to the Sandy Hook school shootings in 2012, and the Paris tragedies in 2015, the most important
lesson learned is to be prepared.
While we hope that such active
shooter events will never happen
in our backyards, the ALERRT
staff at Texas State has developed
a new, research based standard in
active shooter response. Law enforcement professionals across the
nation are carrying this standard
forward.
It is important to note that this
is not SWAT training, but more
importantly, tactical training
skills for first responding officers
to effectively stop active shooter
events. The goal of first responder
active shooter training, specifically the ALERRT training model, is
not to make every officer a SWAT
officer but to provide these first
responders with proven tactics to
effectively resolve these violent
episodes. The training includes
basic active shooter response,
breaching techniques, law enforcement medical training, plain
clothes and off-duty response, low
light training, and working/integrating with multiple law enforcement agencies, as well as with fire
and EMS responders.
Currently, nine courses make up
the ALERRT catalog: Basic Active
Shooter Response Level I (“Stop
the Killing”); Train the Trainer
-Level I; Medical Response for
Law Enforcement Level II (“Stop
the Dying”); First Responder
Breaching; Low Light; Exterior Response to Active Shooter
Events (ERASE); Plain Clothes
Response to Violent Encounters
(PCRVE); Civilian Response to
Active Shooter Events (CRASE)
Train the Trainer Course, and Active Threat Integrated Response
Course (ATIRC).
The ALERRT Center is the only
national training program whose
primary mission is responding to
the active shooter threat. While
much of the training is delivered
on-site in communities around the
country, ALERRT also has a multimillion-dollar training facility in
San Marcos for advanced active
shooter response training.
Since 2002, The ALERRT
Center at Texas State University
has delivered vital active shooter
response training to more than
85,000 law enforcement officers
across the nation, through over
$44 million in federal and state
funding. Due to a dramatic increase in funding, ALERRT anticipates delivering training to an
additional 30,000 police officers
in the next 18 months.

Gainesville’s Week for Dogs and Cats
GAINESVILLE – The
week of July 17 will be filled
with barks, woofs and meows as two events take the
local spotlight. On Thursday, July 21 at 6:00 p.m.,
the long awaited opening
of The Dog Depot at Heritage Park will take place.
The off-leash dog park will
provide recreational areas
for both small and large
dogs and is the first of its
kind in Gainesville and the
only dog park in Cooke
County. The Dog depot is
sponsored and promoted
by The Gainesville Canine
Training Club which focuses on obedience training with a special focus on
Therapy dog training.
Committee Chairman
Frank Mahnich said” The
process of working with
the City has been extraordinary. Their support
throughout the 18 months
since the ideas conception
has been a key factor in its
success. The committee
has worked day and night
to make this project a success.”
Mahnich
continued,
“This park has been built
without any city funding.
The community support
has been overwhelming
with over one hundred donors, both individuals and
businesses. The result is
a beautiful park that will
serve the residents and visitors alike for a long time to
come. We invite everyone
to join us at the dedication
on Thursday.” The park
includes benches, “Doggy
Doo” stations, animal watering stations and a pavilion.
To continue with the pet
theme of the week, Noah’s
Ark is holding its second
annual “Clear the Shelter”
event on Saturday, July
23 starting at 10:00am
through 5:00pm. Noah’s
Ark is Gainesville’s only
animal shelter and this
event is not just for adoption of dogs but for cats
as well. Adoptions will be
provided with all adoption
fees waived to help these
pets new love homes.
Under the leadership
of Dr. Shelly Gomulak,
Noah’s Ark S.P.C.A. was
organized. And with the
support from the City of
Gainesville and donations
from the community,
Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter opened in February of
2006.
Noah’s Ark S.P.C.A. is
dedicated to providing
humane treatment for unwanted and abandoned
pets in the Gainesville
area. The Shelter facility operates in cooperation
with the City of Gainesville to accommodate

in return for a small donation. All adoptable animals
are temperament tested,

A Steppingstone to Oblivion
By Mark Shields
The first very first “presidential” test in public for every nominee for the White
House is the selection of a
vice presidential running
mate. Right after the 1968
Miami Beach convention
where he had won the Republican nomination, Richard M. Nixon explained
why he chose his running
mate: “There is a mysticism
about men. There is a quiet
confidence. You look a man
in the eye and you know he’s
got it -- brains. This guy has
got it. If he doesn’t, Nixon
has made a bum choice.”
Thus did Nixon explain
his unfortunate choice of
the man who would become
the only U.S. vice president
in history to be forced, in
order to escape certain criminal conviction and incarceration, to resign the office
-- Spiro T. Agnew.
In spite of the immediate
celebrity, the media attention and the Secret Service
protection it brings, the
honor of a vice presidential
nomination often turns out
to be a steppingstone to political oblivion. Think about
recent VP candidates who,
encouraged by the inflated
poll numbers attributable in
part to their elevated name
recognition, tried to run in
the next cycle for the White
House and failed even to
compete for their party’s
nomination -- Democrats
John Edwards in 2008 and
Joe Lieberman in 2004.
Earlier, the 1968 Democratic VP nominee, Sen. Edmund Muskie, had been the
front-runner for the 1972
nomination and lost. The
1972 VP candidate, former
U.S. Ambassador to France
Sargent Shriver, ran unsuccessfully for the 1976 Democratic presidential nomination. Republican Sen. Bob
Dole, the losing 1976 VP
nominee, failed badly in his
bid for the 1980 GOP nomination. (Although, Dole,
who humorously described
the VP job as “indoor work
with no heavy lifting,” after
another failed run for the
Republican nomination in
1988, did eventually capture his party’s nod in 1996,
some 20 years after his VP
run.)
In fact, only one American in history has ever won
the presidency after having
lost the race for vice president, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
In 1920, the Democratic
ticket of Ohio Gov. James
M. Cox and the assistant
secretary of the Navy, FDR,
lost to the Republican team
of Sen. Warren G. Harding
of Ohio and Massachusetts
Gov. Calvin Coolidge by
the widest differential in any
presidential election since
1820, 26.2 percent. Twelve
years later, after two terms
as New York governor, FDR
was elected president.
Still, it can be really exciting to be the vice presidential nominee. In 1984, when
President Ronald Reagan
won re-election in a 49-state
landslide over Democrat
Walter Mondale (a former
vice president), Richard
Wirthlin, Reagan’s trusted
pollster, told me that their
campaign, which polled
nightly, showed Reagan behind only one time all year.
That was when Mondale
made history and got a boost
by making Rep. Geraldine
Ferraro the first woman on
a major-party presidential
ticket.
Mostly forgotten today
is that after the 2008 Republican convention in St.
Paul, Minnesota, where he
selected, to mostly positive reviews, Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin as his running
mate, Republican Sen.
John McCain actually took
the national lead over the
Democratic ticket of Barack
Obama and Joe Biden in
polls by Gallup and CBS
News. But by Election Day,
67 percent of voters believed
that Biden possessed “the
personality and leadership
qualities a president needs,”
whereas 63 percent of voters
judged that Palin did not.
Richard Nixon knew firsthand from being one of
only two Americans (along
with FDR) to be nominated
five times for national office
that “the vice president (in
a national campaign) can’t
help you; he can only hurt
you.” More often than not,
running for VP remains a
steppingstone to political
oblivion.

Patrick J. Buchanan
Who Gave Us Justice Ginsburg?
By Patrick J. Buchanan
“Her mind is shot.”
That was the crisp diag-
nosis of Donald Trump on
hearing the opinion of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
on the possibility he might
become president.
It all began with an interview last week when the
justice was asked for her
thoughts on a Trump presidency. Ginsburg went on a
tear.
“I can’t imagine what this
place (the Supreme Court)
would be -- I can’t imagine
what the country would be
-- with Donald Trump as
our president. For the country, it could be four years.
Letter to
the Editor...
Editor’s note – Letters to
the Editor reflect only the
opinion of the author and
not that of The Weekly News
of Cooke County. Facts contained in Letters to the Editor are claims of the author
only. The (...) denotes areas
that have been edited.
To the Editor,
North Texas Medical
Center: The CEO has all
but closed your local hospital. Where is the outrage,
the disgust, the questions
of the board? Second CEO
they have paid off. He got
rid of all locals, brought
in outsiders and the board
went along. Lost how much
this year alone, 5 and a half
million dollars of your money? GMH was a loved local
hospital with Cooke county
employees who took care of
you!! More serious were sent
to larger facilities but the
came back to GMH. Now
they don’t want to bother
with actually having patients
just ship them out!! Local
physicians gave up and send
their patients to specialist
in other cities. So sorry for
Cooke County that you let
the NTMC board do this
to your hospital which had
such potential. Beautiful
building you paid for there.
Stella Manning
Gainesville
For the court, it could be -- I
don’t even want to contemplate that.”
Yet she had contemplated
the horror of it all, as she
quoted her late husband as
saying of such a catastrophe,
“It’s time for us to move to
New Zealand.”
This week, Ginsburg doubled down.
“Trump is a faker,” she
vented in chambers on Monday, “He has no consistency
about him. He says whatever comes into his head. ...
He really has an ego. ... How
has he gotten away with not
turning over his tax returns?
The press seems to be very
gentle with him on that.”
Sounding like Democratic Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Ginsburg
attacked the Senate for not
voting on Judge Merrick
Garland to fill the seat of the
late Justice Antonin Scalia.
“That’s their job. There’s
nothing in the Constitution
that says the president stops
being president in his last
year.”
True, your honor, but
there is also nothing in the
Constitution that says the
Senate must vote expeditiously, or at all.
Ginsburg hailed Justice
Anthony Kennedy as “the
great hero of this term” for
his votes upholding abortion rights and affirmative
action.
“Think what would have
happened had Justice Scalia remained with us,” she
added, which comes close
to saying the death of the
great jurist was not entirely
unwelcome to the leading
liberal on the court.
“I’d love to see Citizens
United overruled,” Gins-
burg volunteered, which
gives us a pretty good idea
how she will vote when that
question comes before the
court again.
As the Wall Street Journal
notes, under Section 28 US
Code 455, “(a)ny justice,
judge or magistrate judge
of the United States must
disqualify himself in any
proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably
be questioned.” Since “himself ” and “his” refer to men,
perhaps Ginsburg does not
think the rules apply to her.
The federal code of judicial conduct for U.S. judges,
says the Chicago Tribune,
states that a “judge should
not ... publicly endorse a
candidate for public office.”
But does not Ginsburg’s
relentless trashing of Trump
constitute a political attack
on him, to help his opponent Hillary Clinton?
Ginsburg “should resign
from the Court before she
does the reputation of the
judiciary more harm,” says
the Journal.
There is a precedent. Justice Abe Fortas resigned in
1969 in a scandal when his
ties to a convicted swindler
became known.
But a dissent here. Why
should Ginsburg resign?
Did anyone doubt she held
these views? Did she hide
her radical liberalism from
the Senate that confirmed
her 96-3 in 1993, with only
three Republicans dissenting, led by the venerable
Jesse Helms?
Ginsburg was an ACLU
lawyer and feminist-activist
when she was named to the
appellate court by Jimmy
Carter. Her views were no
secret to anyone when the
Current U.S. Debt
$19,393,206,727,528.73
Debt
watch
The estimated population of the United States is 323,376,067
so each citizen’s share of this debt is $59,971.06. The National
Debt has continued to increase an average of $2.40 billion per
day since September 30, 2012!*
U.S. Debt, July 12, 2004

* Information obtained from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Population figures from the U.S. Bureau of the Census’ Population Clock. Figures as of July 4, 2016.
Senate confirmed her.
Let us not pretend we did
not know. Thus, why should
she step down for airing political and ideological views
everyone knew she held?
Liberal angst is understandable. Ginsburg is giving away the game.
How can liberals credibly
uphold the pretense that
Supreme Court decisions,
where the left is the majority, represent judgments
based on the Constitution,
when Ginsburg, the leading
leftist, has revealed herself
to be a rabid partisan who
can’t wait to use her judicial
power to impose her ideology upon the United States?
Ginsburg detests Trump.
She wants to kill super
PACs. She thinks discrimination against white males is
fine if it advances diversity.
She thinks Republican Senators are blockheads who do
not know their duties.
She thinks the death penalty is barbaric, and that
abortion on demand and
same-sex marriage are progressive. She is waiting for
a case to come before her so
she can restrict gun rights.
In a democratic republic,
she has a right to hold and
air these views.
But a democratic republic no longer exists when
justices of the mindset of
Ginsburg, who have never
been elected, but serve for
life, can impose these views,
anti-democratically, upon
the country.
Since the Earl Warren
era, the Supreme Court has
usurped the legislative power and imposed social policies, and Congress, which
has the power under Article III to shackle the Ruth
Bader Ginsburgs and restrict
the court’s jurisdiction, has
lacked the courage to do so.
This is the problem, not
Ginsburg. She does what
leftist ideologues do. The
problem is elsewhere.
Pogo said it best, “We
have met the enemy -- and
he is us.”

Family Camp At Camp King
Dragonfly Set for Aug. 6 Around
Town
SHERMAN – Home Hospice of Grayson, Cooke &
Fannin Counties is offering
families in our community a
new bereavement opportunity. Family Camp at Camp
Dragonfly is a day camp, led
by professional clinicians
and trained staff, for families with children of all ages
who have suffered the loss of
a loved one. All activities at
Family Camp are designed
to help families heal and
live successfully after loss.
Campers will have the opportunity to attend a separate group session for adults
and children with those 14
years old and older, going to
the adult session and children 6 to 13 attending the
children’s session. Childcare
will be provided for children
up to 5years old.
“Campers learn ways to
process feelings and treasure memories. Camp is not
about forgetting, it is about
healing. We use exercises to
help families learn to process
grief and then fun activities
to practice the coping skills
they are learning,” said Jerryd Wallace, Bereavement
Coordinator and Camp Director.
Children dealing with
grief often feel isolated and
that no one understands.
Families may struggle to
support each other through
the grieving process. One of
the goals of Family Camp is
to give the campers a chance
to be with others who can relate to their feelings of grief
and sadness while equipping
families with new resources
for coping with grief. “My
child very much enjoyed
camp, she has always felt different from other children
and camp seemed to make
her feel like she belonged,”
said a parent whose daugh-
ter attended. “The grief
counselor I talked to was
awesome! She was very honest and straightforward with
me. She even asked how I
was handling everything.”
Family members will gain
insight as to how children
grieve. “Our goal is to help
the parents understand that
a child experiences grief differently and help parents
recognize and help cope
with those behaviors,” says
Wallace.
Family Camp at Camp
Dragonfly is scheduled for
August 6 from 10:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m. at All Saints Camp
on Lake Texoma, 418 Stanton Way, in Pottsboro, Texas.
Snacks, lunch and bottled
water will be provided. If
you’d like more information
or to register, please contact
Jerryd Wallace by calling
903-868-9315. Registration
is required by July 29.
City’s Emergency Managers
Receive Highest Level FEMA
Professional Certification
GAINESVILLE – Emergency Managers for the
City of Gainesville are responsible for preparing
the city for emergencies
and disasters. Wally Cox,
Emergency Management
Coordinator, and Tamara
Sieger, Emergency Management Officer, recently
earned Advanced Professional Certification, the
highest level of emergency
management professional certification through
FEMA.
For years, FEMA’s certificate has been used to train
professionals in emergency
management, emphasizing
advanced skills in disaster management and including the four phases of
emergency management:
disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and
recovery.
“In emergency management and response, planning and training is key.
The city has experienced
many federally declared
and non-declared disasters.
We have received critical
on the job training along
with classroom training,
which makes our city even
more prepared”, said Tamara Sieger, Emergency
Management Officer.
“The city has conducted
training exercises in a wide
variety of potential disaster
scenarios that could affect
the city. Many of the exercises have included participation by Gainesville
Independent School District, North Texas Medical Center, BurlingtonNorthern Santa Fe Railway
and other government and
business entities in the city.
These are in addition to the
actual occurrences of large
and small incidents that
have required activation
of the emergency management function. Emergency Management is ever
evolving as new practices
and technology change not
only the way disasters are
handled, but the types of
disasters, as well. Emergency management staff
plan and train for disasters
not from the standpoint
of ‘it could happen here’
but ‘it will happen here,’”
said Fire Chief/Emergency
Management Coordinator
Wally Cox.
“Having the City’s Emergency Managers receive
this level of certification
is quite an accomplishment. This demonstrates
the professionalism of the
staff who have worked
and trained in Emergency
Management for more
than two decades,” said
Barry Sullivan, City Manager.
The FEMA certification
program was implemented
in 2001 following the 9/11
Terrorist Attacks.

NTMC Operating Rooms
Undergo Remodeling
GAINESVILLE - The operating rooms at North Texas
Medical Center recently underwent a remodel to update
all three operating rooms to
high-tech integrated technology suites, referred to as
iSuites. The emergence of
new technologies and an increasing demand for operating room efficiency was the
main driver of this remodel.
Integrated
operating
rooms were conceptualized
in the late 1960’s but have
evolved with the rapid advancement of new technology. The essential idea is
that the operating room will
have all the necessary equipment needed for a surgeon
in an ergonomic environment. Modern integrated
operating rooms are built
with state-of-the-art technology that aims to maximize efficiency.
There are currently just
over sixty thousand integrated operating rooms in
the U.S., a number that will
continue to steadily grow.
Integrated operating rooms
are typically profit centers
for hospitals, which has become the impetus around
installing these types of
rooms.
Today, integrated operating rooms are pre-planned
and ergonomically designed, and must consist
of a few main components:
audio-visual communication equipment with HD
monitors, a touch-screen
command center, a digital
recording device, and the
ability to send and receive
diagnostic images. Having
these facilities will not only
reduce surgery time and improve surgery success rates,
but will also attract medical
practitioners to our facility
and drive growth.
“Providing state-of-theart equipment to our surgeons allows for exceptional
patient care to be delivered
in an environment that facilitates efficient utilization
of space”, says Michelle Leverette, Director of Surgical
Services at NTMC. Further, “the operating room
staff has increased efficiency
of work due to the equipment upgrades and the operating room staff has voiced
excitement after acquiring
the experience of working
with the new equipment”,
adds Leverette.
Stryker
Corporation
along with NTMC’s engineering department did the
install on all three operating
rooms. Stryker is a Fortune
500 medical technologies
firm out of Kalamazoo,
Michigan and is one of
the world’s leading medical technology companies
driven to make healthcare
better. The Company offers
a diverse array of innovative
products and services in Orthopedics, Medical and Surgical, and Neurotechnology
and Spine that help improve
patient and hospital outcomes. Stryker is active in
over 100 countries around
the world.
NTMC is equipped with
many physicians and surgeons and can do a number
of procedures locally including: laparoscopic surgery on
the gallbladder, appendix,
hernias, colon and small
intestine, stomach, arthroscopic surgeries, sports
injuries, cosmetic surgeries
Glasses, Contact Lenses, Low Vision
Emergency Eyecare, Cataract & Lid Surgery

Britt, M.D. states “I am very

video equipment in the OR
contributes to the safest and
most effective operations
and allows for more complex procedures to be done
in a minimally invasive fashion.”
