Timothy Herron, Sandusky, Ohio, writes that he is thriving despite the challenges he faces as a solo-practice neurologist in the current healthcare environment. Fortunately, Tim has ventured into medical legal work as a speaker for Forest and Teva Pharmaceuticals, and as of January 2011, as an examiner for traumatic brain injury veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. These areas support Tim's clinical practice and charitable work. Give Tim a "shout-out" when you're in Sandusky! Karen Gardner Wedge, Atlanta, Georgia, reports that her son Robert began his first year in the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs last summer, starting with an intense six weeks of basic cadet training. He was nominated for this ap­pointment by both of the Wedges' senators and their congressman. Karen thinks her Kenyon educa­tion paid off in her mothering, which has been her full-time position for the last eighteen years. Several of Rob's classmates from his high school in Atlanta, The Westminister School, were freshmen at Kenyon last fall! Karen says perhaps her younger son, Kevin, will choose Kenyon. Karen was sad to miss the thirtieth reunion and trusts that much fun was had by all.
