In response to the article “Ground breaks in Mt. Sterling,” published in the Aug. 26 issue of the Madison Press.
It is wonderful that a new medical facility is being built in Mount Sterling. Continued medical care for the greater community can thus be assured.
I know it was not intentional at all, for I was there for the ceremonious groundbreaking, for our mayor, Charlie Neff, to “express a need for a (not another) physician in town.” Nor was it the intention of Lisa Schwartz to say, “I’ve lived here 22 years and I’m excited to have a (not another) doctor in town.
I am sure Bob Arbogast, whose family is funding the near $700,000 project, meant finance — not physician — when he said, “We have to be filling the void.”
My father and I have “the” physician in Mount Sterling for the last 68 years. I am still here and going strong. In fact, a nurse practicioner will be joining me in December to extend my practice even longer.
So, any mention of a physician for Mount Sterling should respectfully say another physician.
