Alford, Tedder to wed

By Donna Smith Ammons

My doctor is a rock star!!! 

For years I’ve heard about a rock band that was composed of five high school boys who formed a band. Since I didn’t attend high school in Many, so I could only depend on what others had told me. After moving to Many, we searched for a family doctor and entrusted our health to Dr. Richard Oosta. Needless to say, his oldest daughter and I became besties. Dr. O. was always there for me----like when Daddy was diagnosed with cancer. He let me sit in his office one afternoon and after explaining what was going to happen, he let me cry. Over the years he took good care of me…. and when I had my gall bladder out, Kathy insisted her assist in the surgery…..so he could save me if something went wrong!! When he retired, he suggested I go to a new doctor in town….. Dr. Jack Corley. So my health has been in the hands of this YOUNG doctor for years.
