Kudos letters: April 3, 2010

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the nurses at nurses’ station No. 2 North at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, especially Erin, for the loving care given to my husband the last few days of his life. You truly are “Angels of Mercy” and made his journey much easier for him.

After having said that, I would like to warn all who do not use ladders as a profession to please stay off of them. My husband would still be with me if he had not fallen from one.

A big thanks goes out to Greg and Rona Cook, the owners of Friar Tuck’s Restaurant & Bar, who hosted an “Evening Out” to benefit United Way of Nevada County recently. It was a great success as many people came in from the cold to enjoy a delicious meal in a cozy atmosphere and help their community at the same time. The owners generously donated 10 percent of all proceeds from the evening to UWNC and its 20 partner agencies. Thank you, again!

Congratulations to Joe Fish, Deputy Air Pollution Control Officer, Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District, for his excellent presentation on “Air Pollution” at the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County monthly community meeting. His depth of knowledge and ease of delivery was well received by gathered members and concerned citizens. We invite the community to visit our Web site: http://www.lwvwnc.org for League calendar of events; timely election information; Candidate forums; Pros and Cons of ballot initiatives and much more.

A huge thank-you to Chicago Park School community members Mark Fetzer, Trina and Lee Matthews and Dave Jefferis.

Mark donated materials plus his time and talents to make a stunning garden arbor for the entranceway to our school. Trina planted two flowering bushes that will be trained to weave through the arbor. Dave used his backhoe and Lee brought concrete as they worked together to install the arbor.

As a result, the front of Chicago Park School will forever be enhanced by an incredible piece of landscape art for all to enjoy.

I would like to give kudos to the following businesses for their assistance with gathering books for Scooter’s Pals. Ames Bookstore, Neal St.; Serenity of the Senses, Main St.; Curves, Brunswick; Java Gardens, Alta Sierra; Animal Clinic of Penn Valley; Nevada City Postal, Commercial St.; Dr. Sabrina Simms, Coyote St.; and Pine Creek Vets, New Mohawk. All money received for the sale of these books goes to pay vet bills for the dogs the group rescues.

Thanks to the caring support of the following local businesses who donated items for our raffle last Saturday, March 6, Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release had a very successful “Annual Recruitment Event.”

Wild Birds Unlimited, Aikido’Ka, Sierra EEG, Lea Hume Massage Therapist, Sierra Cinema, New Moon, Dr. Sara Woerner, Pleasant Valley, Local Audubon Group & gracious WR&R members!

We owe kudos to The Union, KNCO and KVMR who accommodated us and helped in getting the word out.

The monies raised that day will unquestionably contribute to the well-being of hundreds of wild animals this year. Thank you so much for your generosity in these trying times when resources are limited, as it really shows how committed you are to helping our amazing wildlife.

Kudos to Twin Cities Concert Association for bringing the Vienna Boys Choir to Grass Valley! I just returned from a visit to my parents, where I was fortunate enough to see and hear (up-close-and-personal!) this remarkable group of boys. Your community is not only beautiful, but is blessed with the talented and dedicated people of TCCA, who bring incredibly gifted artists to your many music lovers. This small board did an excellent job of planning and executing the recent performance in a venue that had been sold out since last November! Many thanks!
