For the record

IHA help find equipment for Greenwood health clinic, not a doctor. The mayor was quick to point out the city has a new doc lined up.

In last week’s Times, the Greenwood council article stated that Interior Health Authority had promised Greenwood Mayor Nipper Kettle that they would assist in finding a new doctor. Mayor Kettle phoned as soon as the paper hit the streets to request the following correction. “We have a doctor,” Kettle said. “The reason that we went there was to try and find some equipment that would help the doctor. We have the new doctor, and don’t want people to get the idea that we don’t have a doctor. We already have one. I don’t want to see us losing patients over it.”

The Oct. 2 print edition article about the Marshalls receiving an award for their woodlot work stated they have been woodlot licencees for the past two decades. In fact, they have had a woodlot for 29 years. It also stated they raised five children on their woodlot near Midway; that should have read two children. Fred’s three older children were grown up and moved away by the time the Marshalls moved to their Boundary woodlot.

A member of the Boundary Woodlot Association contacted the Times to request a correction on the West Boundary Community Forest article as well. The article referred to woodlots, but should have more accurately called them woodlands as woodlots are licensed and governed separately from community forests.
