Some Assisted Living misconceptions

Dear Editor,

If it walks like a duck

NVH staff is incredible

Dear Editor,

I would like to extend my thanks to the staff of your local Hospital (N.V.H) for their actions this past Christmas eve. A passenger aboard the Canadian tour bus I was driving to Spokane, was stricken with an acute medical condition as I approached Tonasket.
