Tuesday was a "stretch day" for emergency services in Calhoun, with at least two local residents suffering medical emergencies and dying, a 71-year-old Sand Ridge man and a 65-year-old Big Bend woman.

The list of Tuesday's medical emergencies required two visits by HealthNet.

There is good news.

Local DHHR Director Jim Morford is recovering well after his four-wheeler collided with a truck on Pine Creek Road and ten-year-old Nathan Peck of Russett, is mending after being thrown from a horse.

Young Peck was visiting his uncle John Peck and family on Walker Road, off State Rt. 16 Tuesday evening, when he fell from the horse.

He was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center by Calhoun EMS, where he was admitted overnight.

Nathan suffered a pretty severe fractured arm, which required surgery Wednesday morning. He hopes to return to school today.
