From the desk of the publisher: A Community in Prayer

For those that know me, know that I am not a religious person – more spiritual. However, back in January my mother became ill and was admitted to Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento. The diagnosis and prognosis were unclear – yet the doctors were hopeful and were going to do their best to get her on the road to recovery.

After a few days, it was hard to keep hope. I needed some extra help. So I called upon many friends and family members to begin praying, sending positive and healing thoughts, and some lit lanterns.

Within a few days all seemed to be working – there was improvement in my mother’s health and secured my faith.

I was amazed at the number of people who were putting my mom in their daily prayers – to whom many did not know. Colusa County is a unique group of communities, and our prevailing trait is our availability to those who are in need of help – even in prayer.

Unfortunately the battle my mother faced was just too much for her body, and she passed on February 10.

Throughout this troublesome time, I continued to publish each edition. I worked on limited hours, as I tried to be with my mother at the hospital and be there for my father through this difficult time. With that said, some of the content in our publication has lacked, and some stories became unwritten.

It is without saying that I apologize to our readers for the lack of attention; however, I am hopeful that you will understand the circumstances. It is quite difficult when faced with family emergencies and tragedy, and I am the sole individual responsible for all aspects of the publication.

Please have no doubt, or ill thoughts, the Williams Pioneer Review’s coverage of our beautiful community will resume the month of March with each edition publishing every week. Be on the lookout, I’ll be adding some great feature stories too.

Furthermore, I would like to thank the Arbuckle Fire Department for their assistance with my mother during her time of need, and many thanks to the medical team at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento. I cannot say enough about the amount of professionalism and care they gave my mother. From the team of skilled doctors to the nurses who aided my mom daily, I thank you greatly for not only giving my mom the best care possible, but keeping us informed throughout the entire process.

Thank you, Colusa County, I am proud to have always called you home.
