Kudos & Kindness
April 4, 2005
To the editor:
On March 30, 35 agencies and 200 individuals from government, private businesses, service clubs, and fabulous volunteers came together for the benefit of our children. The Drug Store Project, an anti-drug reality event, sent the message to 360 seventh-grade students that the choices they make (independent of parents, teachers, and friends), will affect them directly and their futures. They have the responsibility to themselves to do what will be physically, mentally, and ethically right for their lives. “Choices, What are Yours?” was the theme for the day.
I’d like to take the time to thank the following who made this possible: AK Entertainment, Barton Health Care, Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, Department of Justice / Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, California National Guard / Drug Demand Reduction Unit, CASA El Dorado, California Highway Patrol, Douglas County Sheriff, El Dorado Co. Mental Health, El Dorado Co. Probation, El Dorado Co. Public Health, El Dorado Sheriffs, El Dorado Co. Superior Court, Embassy Suites Hotel, Kiwanis, Lake Tahoe Community College, Lake Tahoe Unified School District, Lake Valley Fire District, Mortuary, Optimist, Pro-Leisure, Rotary, Sierra Recovery Center, South Lake Tahoe Fire Department, South Lake Tahoe Police Department, Soroptimist, South Tahoe Youth Council, South Tahoe Middle School’s Leadership class and the class of Ms. Stephenson, Tahoe Community Church, Tahoe Douglas Fire District, and Tahoe Youth and Family Services.
Many hands not only make light work, but many hands make meaningful work, too. Thank you for your time, your effort, and for again rising to the occasion to put our community’s children first.

To the Barton hospital staff
To the editor:
We would like to thank sincerely the doctor, nurses and technicians in the Barton Hospital EKG and nuclear lab for their courteous and professional care.
As busy as these employees were, they displayed a kindness and consideration which made the testing procedure a pleasant rather than a difficult experience.
