Bus perfect vaccine against high car costs for nurse

Cathy TuttleSpecial to the Post Independent

For the month of March we would like to congratulate Sara Harter, Garfield County public health nurse. Sandra Barnett, nurse manager for Garfield County Public Health, nominated Sara. The following is an excerpt from Sandra’s nomination letter for Sara.”Sara Harter constantly reminds her co-workers how great it is to ride the bus. She started riding the bus (Grand Hogback) in October 2002. Sara is a public health nurse who lives in Rifle and works in Glenwood. “She is also studying for a master’s in community nursing and as a graduate student is on a tight budget. Sara’s original impetus to be a bus rider was to avoid buying new snow tires for her car. “Riding the bus is allowing Sara to save money and find some extra time for studying. We suspect that what she especially enjoys are those catnaps between Rifle and Glenwood Springs. Whatever the reason, Sara is a steady rider of three to four times a week.””I enjoy putting the driving in the trusty drivers’ hands,” replied Sara regarding her Riding Hero award.For being March’s Riding Hero, Sara received a free lunch from the Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub, $40 worth of Grand Hogback bus punches and congratulations from all of us on making a difference in our community.Send in your nomination now for the next Riding Heroes!Chosen entran will receive a $25 gift certificate to one of Glenwood’s fine eateries and $40 worth of Grand Hogback or Ride Glenwood bus punches.Once a month in this column, we will introduce to you an individual who takes advantage of the bus service in this community or an individual who drives one of these large multi-passenger vehicles.In 100 words or less, please describe why this person should be recognized.
