The minimal charge is ﬁve dollars, and it takes a sizable income to match the $30 average doctor fee. Last month I visited brieﬂy with Christine Brown, R.N. at our local health department. She is our local public health nurse (and is also known as Tina Brown, R.N., school We talked for awhile about the health issues of Grand County kids. She said that the biggest health problem is dental decay. So she has put together the “Smile Factory,” a dental health kit which is available on loan to the community. Our local teachers often check out the giant teeth and brush to use in class. The second major health concern seems to be upper respiratory problems. The staff at the Health Department were terriﬁc—friendly, caring, and nurse). I was impressed with what she eager to help and still respect our and her ofﬁce have to offer us. choices.

These will be handled at the next meeting. NEW BUSINESS: Mynoa Williams suggested that when the well is put in on the town lot a hand pump be installed to be used by Castle Valley residents in emergency situations. It would make life easier for those with well problems also. This suggestion was very well supported by the meeting participants, and it will be pursued by the Town Lot Committee.
