I wish to express my appreciation to everyone involved in the July 8th rescue operation resulting from the Columbia River boating incident.  Thank you to the Carys for being observant, notifying the sheriff's department and then tracking and reporting my position as I swam toward shore.  Thank you to Undersheriff Steve Marshall and to Deputy Sheriff Bill Tawater, not only for picking up a cold and exhausted sailor and delivering me to the EMS ambulance waiting at the Cathlamet Town Dock, but also for returning to the disabled sailboat and towing it back to the Elochoman Slough Marina.  Finally, thank you to the EMS ambulance crew for being there for me and for all of us needing your care and medical expertise anytime of the day or night.
To the Sheriff's Department, the Fire Department and the EMS ambulance crews, thank you all for the time you spend each year training so that you are prepared to provide such vital services to those of us in this community.  It is comforting to know that within this community there are such brave, caring, talented and dedicated individuals.  You are all a big part of the reason this area is so special.
Thank you.  Life is good.
