A lifetime of faith, caring and a calling

By Victoria Walker
 "My motivation in caring for people has everything to do with my faith. I try to care for people holistically because I believe God cares deeply for each person. I think it is kind of a basic calling. It's why I'm doing what I'm doing. It is the reason I came here, and it is the reason I'm staying here. It's a thread that goes throughout my whole practice. It has kept me focused," says Dr. Burr Field. "I have never ever had someone refuse when I offer to pray with them. It's my way of caring for the whole person, not just their medical issues."  Dr. Fields has worked as a medical doctor in Prosser for over 30 years.

Washington drivers are reminded to remove studded tires by March 31

Olympia As spring approaches across the region, the Washington State Department of Transportation reminds drivers to remove their studded tires by midnight Sunday, March 31.
Under state law, driving with studded tires after March 31, is a traffic infraction and could result in a $124 ticket.
In addition, studs can wear down pavement, so removing them promptly helps extend the lifetime of state roadways. Tire removal services can get crowded as the deadline approaches, so please plan accordingly.
