Now that Kooskia voters have refused to recall Mayor Charlotte Schilling, I hope that the spirit of cooperation and good will that used to exist between the ambulance volunteers and the city can return. I have good friends in both groups, and I know they are intelligent people who have the ability to sit down together and correct the differences that remain.
Recent letters in the Clearwater Progress from Albert Johnson and Paul Hemerick highlight some of the issues. I hope the city will read those letters and offer to find a compromise that can return us to the former "family" atmosphere that we had here for the past 30-plus years.
Please people, set egos aside and work this out.
