To the editor:
From 2000 to 2002, I wrote many updates from Belize, Central America, after living in and raising my family in Craig for 23 years. As many of you know, my "empty nest" phase included an epiphany that brought me to the southern jungles of Belize to open a women's health clinic, which I ran for 5 1/2 years. I turned it over to Belize Family Life Association in March 2005, and it continues to provide services to the poorest of the poor in Belize. The clinic was funded initially by the generous folks of Moffat County, and I can't thank you enough for all that you've done for the 1,000 families I enrolled in our clinic.
Now, I'd like to ruminate about other things ...
1. First Congregational Church donated several things for hurricane victims in 2003. Since we've been blessed with no hurricanes the past few years, I've given those packages to families in need.
2. I recently went to Honduras. Please tell T. Wright Dickinson and John Wellman that in Honduras, when they put in fence posts, the posts grow into trees and then the ranchers have ready-made firewood!
3. I see that Allan Reishus has been elected as chief of staff at The Memorial Hospital. I believe that Allan will do a wonderful job in that position. With his experience, relationships with the medical staff and the TMH board, I know that positive things can be done. Congrats to Allan and The Memorial Hospital!
If anyone wants to e-mail me, it's firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from Craig!
