Autumn Johnson, director of Campus Recreation at Texas A&M-Commerce, says we should start using 30 spf suncreen during the spring and not wait until summer.  Autumn says we spend more time in the sun starting in the spring, and overexposure to the sun is possible even when the temperatures are still mild.

Steve Killian, superintendent of Cooper Lake State Park, says attendance is up this summer at the park compared to last year, despite ... or perhaps, because of ... the coronavirus situation.  In fact, Cooper Lake is among the top 10 state parks in attendance this summer. Steve says the park has various ways of helping families enjoy the park even though the organized programs led by park rangers are not taking place for the time being.
