Thanks for

support in my race for judge

To the Editor:

I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to all my friends and supporters for your support during the election for the position of West Linn Municipal Court Judge.

I truly appreciate the encouragement and help you have provided throughout this process.

I wish to congratulate Judge Heather Karabeika on her election to the position.

West Linn is a wonderful city and I look forward to continued community involvement.

Thank you to the good people at TVF and R

To the Editor:

I'd like to express my deepest gratitude to the four wonderful Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue employees whose professional expertise and availability at the Bolton Firehouse on the afternoon of March 12, transformed my personal medical emergency from what could have been an extremely serious incident into a three-hour scare.

When an unexpected allergic reaction started, at home, I decided to drive to a local emergency room.

Finding myself stuck behind several school buses at the Elliot light, getting to the hospital by myself suddenly seemed a very bad idea.

With the fire station just a block away, I drove there, parked in front and went in, asking for an EMT.

Before you could say angioedema, four sympathetic folks had me IVd and on oxygen, had called the ambulance and made arrangements for my quick trip to the back door of the Oregon City ER.

Perhaps I should have called 911, but in retrospect it all worked out well thanks to the proximity of my neighborhood fire station. I can't thank those four firefighters enough, and I urge others to remember the firehouse as a resource in situations like mine, which was caused simply by taking an unfamiliar antibiotic.

Thank you again to the men and woman who worked to help me and keep me calm.

Join cities across the globe in

turning lights off

To the Editor:

One Hour. Big Change.

On March 29, cities around the world will join together to literally turn off the lights for one hour to offer leadership and symbolize their commitment to finding climate change solutions.

Individuals, local businesses and corporations will also be asked to turn off their lights. Will you join in?

It is my sincere hope that this information will be placed (front page) in both the Tidings and the Review.

I received this in the mail last week (I support the World Wildlife Fund) and feel it is very important to announce this to our communities. This is to be a worldwide event! The newspapers sure could play a part in this!

Thanks.
