After a very complete make-over, our local paper, which I contribute a column on HIV monthly, has now made my column available online.  I want to remind those of you who do not know the background on this, I was invited to write a monthly column, by the Mormon Family that owns the paper.  I of course accepted, and have been doing so since February.  I have copies of the columns from the past, but will not place them here, but maybe in my Blog.  They are probably not very interesting to anyone here, as they are applicible to this very conservative Republican territory, near the Mexican Border.  Can you say Tombstone Vigilantes?

The link to todays edition is http://www.svherald.com/articles/2006/06/28/local_news/features_and_opinions/columnists/columnist2.txt

I just made an attempt to bring up the rest of the columns, but this is the first one to appear online.  I will be posting this each month on the last Wednesday of the month.  Thursday, for you wonderful neighbors down under. I hope you look around the paper, as on the front page, you have loads of nice things to look at around where I live.  There is one very nice guide to Cochise County I know you will love.  Beautiful Photography!


In Love.

Sierra Vista is very scenic with the mountains so close and the large number of hummingbirds that live there. I was married in the army in Germany and upon my return to the USA we stopped in Sierra Vista to visit with my wife's parents. During our stay I helped fight a mountain forest fire.

Congratulations on your appointment and your column Tim. I'm looking forward to some very informative reading.


P.S. Hope all is well with you.

Moffie: I read your article. I write to say that you inspire me in two ways. First, to continue with HIV research studies in which I'm involved as a participant, and to be on the look out for new ones. Second, to be grateful for every day my immune system works with me and to do everything I can to assist it. I've read many of your posts and have appreciated the wisdom you've shared with the brave, and, the scared. Having read your account of your body rejecting its regimen, I am moved---simply,energetically, moved. Em

To all of you, thanks very much.

Yes, Sierra Vista is a beautiful place, and I love living here, even though we are in the news on a regular basis about the US/Mexico border situation.  Since Texas has increased its surveillance of the border in that state, and the same in California, we are experiencing a huge influx of people coming north across the border here, and so there are loads of law enforcement, military, and National security forces here.  All in all, not a very receptive audience for issues around HIV/AIDS. 

One note of interest, I received a call last night from someone interested in talking about their daughter who is HIV+ and wanting to move here to take care of aging parents, so at 9am, I am going for coffee with her and discuss the needs the daughter might have. 

See, it does help to come out and speak of our needs as HIV+'s.

In Love, and Gratefulness for this wonderful assemblage of people.

Excellent,thanks for sharing the link to your story.  I wonder if my sister in Bernalillo is familiar with your article.  She is a nurse and I heard from her recently and she is changing jobs and is joining an integrative medicine practice where they offer alternative perspectives and treatments.

Will watch for your weekly updates
