Wyoming couple visits fair

Rudy and Rose French of Alpine, Wyoming were in our vicinity during the Emo Fair working on their property they have purchased–a retirement spot in Canada.
They were former residents in the Off Lake area before moving to the United States, where the boys Jim and Joe were attending a Christian college.
The couple had at first attended Off Lake Covenant. When the boys attended Emmanuel Christian Academy at the First Baptist Church in International Falls, they attended that church there. The parents were involved in the school activities, Rudy was Athletic Director in the sports program.
Rudy and Rose visited with friends here and had the opportunity to visit the annual Emo Fair. I’ll be hearing from the couple in the very near future. Rudy pastors a church in Alpine.

We should get an internal medicine specialist in the following areas: cardiology, strokes, geriatrics (for older people), diabetics, and cancer. Although I know there are programs available, there are no human resource–this has to be sought outside our area. We have plenty family doctors, but this is no excuse to not have the above mentioned people in place. How about the CEO Wayne Woods and the board looking into this matter. You got “Care Close to Home program” in place, but there is more to health care than that, so let’s get a move on.
