And now for some good news

Doug McGregor passes along good news about his granddaughter, Jezika Freeman, who was seriously injured in a recent automobile accident that killed her husband.

“Friday she told the therapist that the therapy was ‘hard’ so they told her she would get to rest on Sunday as there wouldn’t be any therapy on Sunday,” McGregor wrote in an e-mail.

“Jezika replied, ‘Well that is what the Bible says.’

“Her recovery is slow, however the doctors are saying they don’t see any reason that she can’t recover completely. It will take time … could be as long as two to four years.”

U.S. Rep Tom Udall, D-N.M., wants to bestow Bataan Death March veterans with the Congressional Gold Medal.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW), 2.3 million members strong, has endorsed the plan, according to a news release from Udall’s office.

“The coalescing support around this long-overdue tribute to the veterans who endured unimaginable hardships in Bataan is very heartening,” said Udall. “I hope the VFW’s endorsement of my legislation to finally honor these soldiers will translate into more Congressional support for the measure.”

Gayla Brumfield is Clovis’ new mayor. Here’s what Raymond Atchley is expecting:

“Please take may analogy in the right way,” he wrote in an e-mail in response to an editor’s question, “but I want my mayor to work very much like my water heater. I always have plenty of hot water, it makes me feel better, and yet I never think about where such bliss comes from or the whole process involved before I get it.

“I want my mayor to do such a great job I rarely think of the hard work to produce the benefit.”
