Care and concern

Dear Editor:

I’d like to thank the two wonderful women (one an EMT) who came to my aid when I took a nasty spill at a local restaurant last Sunday. I missed a small step and fell backward, hitting my head on the stone floor. The two women sprang into action, one getting me an ice pack for my head, and the EMT checking me for possible serious injury and also warning me about what to look out for in the next few hours, such as dilated pupils, severe headache and nausea, and to get to the ER if any of these symptoms should occur.

The concern and caring from these two women was amazing, especially considering I ruined their brunch. Bless you both.

Oh, by the way, I’m fine.

Sue Johnson

A consortium of state and commercial water entities announced Monday that in late June or early July, construction crews will begin excavating dirt from land adjacent to U.S. Highway 40, to fill in part of the existing reservoir and dredge a new path for the Colorado River to flow around it.
