Health clinic soon to be reality

It has been a long road from dream to reality for the Howard County Health Clinic.

The clinic, which has suffered more stops and starts than metropolitan rush hour traffic, will soon become reality, thanks to an outpouring of private and public support.

The latest push the clinic received came when it received $150,000 from the Big Spring Economic Development Corp. to help with renovation of the clinic's future home at 1300 Gregg. Clinic officials and BSEDC representatives put their signatures on the formal agreement Friday morning.

If all goes well, the clinic should be open to the public around May 1, said Ann Farley, clinic manager.
