IN SPECIAL MEMORY

This past Saturday, during the ‘Let’s Talk’ event put on by the Lamb County District Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the Littlefield EMS, event organizers remembered Ashley Perea, a victim of domestic violence by sharing her story. Lori Zinn, Lamb County’s Victim Advocate, said the blue balloons signified Perea’s favorite color, blue; and the yellow balloons were for hope. Before the balloon release, a prayer was said for Perea, her family and anybody else, who has been lost to domestic violence. Along with domestic violence, the event covered drinking and driving, sexting, human trafficking and featured a free self-defense class taught by Kristi Wuensche, a former Lubbock Police Officer who has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Krav Maga defensive tactics and Jay Fox, who began studying martial arts in 1993. Fox has backgrounds in many different styles including Wing Chun Kung Fu, Aikido, Krav Maga and others.

Doctor Lauren Swartz joins LHC Family Medicine staff

By JOE GONZALES

Doctor Lauren Swartz, the newest doctor at LHC Family Medicine Clinic is happy to be here, because this is something she’s always wanted to do.

“I’ve always wanted to practice rural medicine,” said Dr. Swartz.

“I grew up in Lubbock, so I’m a West Texas native. And I grew up around the agriculture community.

So being able to live and work in a rural setting has always appealed to me.”

Swartz said that’s why rural clinics were on her list when looking somewhere to practice family medicine, plus woman’s health and obstetrics.

“I was looking for a place where I could do that...and Littlefield was the best fit for me,” she said.
