Hello to everyone! Consider this a partial return to work. I wanted to at least get something into print at this time with more to follow in the next two weeks when i am actually back to work.

Mainly, I would like to thank all of you that took the time to send me cards, write emails or leave voice mail, wishing me a speedy recovery. I will not try and reply to each of you individually, but I would like you to know how much your kindness was appreciated. I would like to thank you for all of your prayers, thoughts, energy, light and love. Every bit of it was put to good use during a very trying time over the past four weeks. I have been getting the best care possible from Wendy and am improving daily. By next week it will be back to the frantic pace that is the life of the regional director! Lots of issues are outstanding and need attention, but nothing has fallen off the map.

I would also like to thank my alternate director, Rob Mckerracher, for attending meetings for me while I was laid up. He also reported back to me on the meetings. I have been keeping in touch with the office on a few major topics and will report on everything that is happening next report, such as:

- The Quathiaski cove Village planning process
- The SRD strategic planning process
- The SRD climate action planning process
- The Quathiaski Cove sewer expansion plan
- The Heriot Bay sewer system process
- The Evans Bay Wharf divestiture (pending legal approval)
- and any other issues that are current at that time.

So, stay tuned and feel free to call me between the hours of 8:30 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday (not on weekends, folks!) at 285-3355, or you can fax me at 285-3533 or you can email me anytime at , or by mail at Box 278 in the Cove, V0P 1N0... Lots of choices.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Abram
Director, Discovery Islands - Mainland Inlets (Area C), SRD
