Rotarians and guests were treated to an outstanding program Wednesday with four members of Palo Pinto County Municipal Water District No. 1 providing information and an update on Turkey Peak Reservoir, the planned second water reservoir adjacent to Lake Palo Pinto that will nearly double the district's impounded water capacity and supply to its service areas in Palo Pinto and Parker counties, serving more than 31,000 people.
 
Pictured, from left, are district members Kelli Tunnell Huseman, Kenneth Martin, Corey Shockley and Dr. David Turk, and Rotary President Tonya Folmar Gary.
 
Rotary meets every Wednesday at Southside Church of Christ, with lunches catered by Sadie’s Eats.
 
Eating better and healthier, learning to grow your own food and supporting local producers are the goals of the new "Let's Grow Crazy" Farmer's Market. Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Wednesday welcomed, pictured from left, Michele Burns, Amy Ringo Lane and Tai Silva to talk about the new market and its long-term plans.
 
Located at 500 S.W. 2nd Avenue downtown, south of the Baker Hotel's front steps, the not-for-profit market is a true farmer's market featuring natural and locally grown food with a goal of building community and creating an education center. The current Leadership of Mineral Wells Class 26 is taking on that goal as a class project.
 
The market is in its early stages. It opened June 5, drawing a lot of people who shopped the vendors, purchasing locally grown and produced vegetables, fruits, meats, breads, salsa and more. The market will be open the first and third Saturdays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Mineral Wells ISD Head Librarian Cathy Hammond, pictured center, attended Wednesday's meeting to ceremoniously accept this club year's donation of books to the district's campus libraries. Each week, the guest speaker is presented a book provided by the club to sign. That book is designated for one of the libraries. Also pictured are club President Tonya Folmar Gary, left, and Connie Ball, who heads up the club's literacy project.
 
 
Millions of Americans suffer from acute or chronic pain, commonly in the lower back, a knee, or knees, in the head, hips and neck. Typically, these are caused by injuries – recent or from years ago – or medical conditions such arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, sciatica and more.
 
Too often, some people will try and cope with their pain by simply using prescription pain killers. While that can provide temporary relief, it doesn’t identify and treat the source of the pain. As we know, use of narcotics can lead to more problems.
 
This is where pain treatment specialists like Dr. Roger Wang D.O. (pronounced Wong) come in. A Midwest native, Dr. Wang (pictured above left with program chair Shane Coleman) came to Mineral Wells and Palo Pinto General Hospital last fall and offices in the Professional Health Services Building at the corner of U.S. Highway 180 West and S.W. 25th Avenue, just north of PPGH. He was Wednesday's guest speaker.
 
 

Mineral Wells Fire Chief Ryan Dunn was this week's featured speaker, talking to Mineral Wells Rotary Club members about the changes, upgrades and improvements the department has undertaken in the last several years designed to improve fire and EMS service and coverage and lower the city's ISO rating. He is pictured above with club President Tonya Gary.

As assistant chief, Ryan was very involved in daily fire and EMS operations and was key to finding and securing grants and funds to acquire and update vehicles, equipment and apparatus and expand the department's personnel to meet staffing needs and standards. He was recently promoted to chief following the retirement of previous chief Mike Pool.

 

When water gets in your home and business, we often think we got it all dried and cleaned up but damage typically occurs in not what you can see, but what you can't see – under the flooring and behind walls.

That is where Kristy Beck-Miller comes in. She can identify all kinds of indoor air quality issues and provide solutions and remedies that can save property owners hundreds or thousands of dollars while creating healthy indoor environments.

Kristy, pictured left, spoke to Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Wednesday about her Adaptive Environmental Consulting company. She was the guest of this week's program chair Lyn Butcher.
