On October 24th, our old horse Colonel could not get up after trying several times.
We live near the Battle Mountain Humane Society (BMHS) north of Hot Springs, and I had previously talked to Michelle Brock with BMHS about how Colonel was getting old. Michelle mentioned that if I ever needed help with him to let her know. That day came this week, so I asked for her help.
I called her and it was five minutes and she was at our place. She took care of everything. She just did that. She made a resting place for Colonel and took care of all the necessary things.
We tried so hard to get a vet here, but all of the ones in our area were busy at the time. The only one we could get was from Fall River Veterinary Clinic, but not until 5:30 p.m. Michelle stayed with me until they came.
I just want to say that Michelle made a bad situation for us, a much better one because of her kindness. She is a very caring person, and by knowing that, I know she is taking very good care of all the animals at the Humane Society.

I was in Hot Springs last month and during my visit, I had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Andrea Powers, executive director of the Southern Hills Economic Development Corporation (SHEDCO). She took me on an excellent tour around town – I was so pleased to see how nicely kept and clean this community is. Your residents definitely show pride in their hometown!
Hot Springs is clearly an engaged community – one that finds opportunities around every corner – in particular, opportunities that exploit natural resources like the natural hot water in Hot Springs. There’s huge potential with this natural resource, and I strongly encourage community leaders to continue pursuing those possibilities.
Hot Springs is a beautiful, historical community! Keep up the good work and best wishes for continued success!
