Inter- Fatal wreck victim identified A man killed in a fiery head-on collision near Pateros April 20 has been identified as Isaac Medel-Medel, 24, of Pateros. Medel-Medel was driving north on SR 97 at about 11:30 p.m., according to information released by the Washington State Patrol. About four miles south of Brewster, his 1983 Mazda pickup drifted off the road and hit the guardrail, spinning around and coming to rest in the northbound lane, facing in the southbound direction. A 1993 Freightliner semi-trailer also was traveling north; it hit the car head- on. Both vehicles caught fire and were fully engulfed. Medei-Medel was dead at the scene. The truck driver, Johnny Hensley, 59, ZiUah, suffered minor injuries. Dr. Jim Larsen con't from page 2 community-based clinic; practicing medicinethere"tends to be more challenging." His first exposure to them was as a medical resident in Pueblo, Colorado. A Pocatello, Idaho native, he returned to his home state to take a job at a community clinic in Nampa. Nampa is in the middle of a farming region. It is also close to the state capitol of Boise, one of the fastest growing cities in the West. The doctors at the Nampa clinic saw people from Nampa and Caldwell and Parma, but they also worked at a clinic for the homeless in Boise. Larsen was its supervising physician; he also worked at a Nampa- based clinic for victims of sexual abuse. It was a stressful job. After four years Larsen and his wife Grace left the clinic and started taking short term jobs across the Pacific Northwest. For 18 months they worked in Alaska, Idaho and other places, doing what Larsen called "some exploring" of different communities and practices settings. One of those jobs was a two-month stay in Brewster. The Larsens liked what they found. One of the things Larsen said he learned during that "almost sabbatical-type" 18 months to balance work and life. "Brewster has that balance." The patients who have consulted him in Brewster have a different attitude than his patients in Nampa, he said; they work harder and take more responsibility for themselves and their lives.
