February 6, 2013 LETTERS FROM PAGE 5 the Planning and Zoning commision and the council. The Town council then tried to fire the whole commission. Then found out by their attorney that they could not. So on it goes. Business as usual. John Kelly, Quartzsite Urgent Care available For many years we have dry camped in Quartzsite in our motorhome. Fortunately, I'm in fairly good health but yesterday I came down with a horrible case of acute bronchitis. Needless to say, I was coughing all night and got no sleep (even my dog wanted me outside). I can't remember when I've been so sick. I live in Big Bear Lake, CA and departing for home was not an option. I Googled urgent care facilities and the closet one was in Parker, AZ. My wife drove me to La Paz Regional Hospital, ER and Urgent Care center this morning. I had no idea what to expect so far from home and being on Medicare (AARP supplement). Was I surprised and delighted with the service and the people who run it! My caregiver was Crystal Carmack, FNP, and she was fantastic along with the other staff. I didn't need a x-ray and the whole visit took only about 2 hours. If you're visiting Quartzsite or the river, and need urgent care help, this is the place to go.
