    Don’t take our dedicated EMTs for granted
    Editor:
    On July 4, 2011, I suffered a near-fatal fall down a steep flight of stairs, resulting in eight broken ribs (many with multiple breaks) and a lacerated spleen.

    Editor:

    Data don’t support well-test waiver
    Editor:
    Replying to Mr. Cerillo’s letter in the June 22 Canyon Courier: Mr. Cerillo is not neutral, being a consultant paid by the developer/applicant. I was not at the hearing, but I have read the case file, and I agree with the county staff.

    EAA’s new downtown gallery emblematic of Evergreen’s potential
    Editor:
    That valiant ex-Green Beret Paul Koentges just staged a stunning victory in downtown Evergreen. Koentges, now in his second run as president of the Evergreen Artists Association, has established the EAAs first “home” since its founding a half-century back with a highly visible member-owned gallery on Main Street.
