  • A good man lost

    I had planned to write about Jerry Sloan this week until I learned of the death of Dr. Rick Arnold. I will still comment about Sloan but not to the degree that I would have had Dr. Arnold not passed away.
    I do not know the cause of death or anything, and for my article it doesn’t really make any difference.
    Dr. Rick Arnold’s death leaves a huge gap in our community. Anytime a small town loses a general practice doctor, it is hard for that community.
