Happy Thanksgiving, 2018

I miss these Thanksgivings in Jo-anne’s garage, and the people who have since moved away…I am thankful for you all and count my blessings that you are in my life. I am thankful for all the friends I have met through this blog for the last 10 years, and for what we have shared together – happy and painful. We have a wonderful community of Big Surians now spread over a great distance from Thailand to Switzerland and beyond. We are family.

New Big Sur Fire Chief

New Big Sur Fire Chief.

Dear Friends,

As the Big Sur Fire Board of Directors has decided to implement their succession plan please join me in welcoming Deputy Chief Matt Harris when he assumes the position of Chief on January 1, 2019.

I have so appreciated all of your help, friendship and support over the years, in particular after the devastating Pfeiffer Fire.

I know you all will be equally supportive of Matt going forward and he will make an excellent Chief!

After 42 years in EMS, 14 with the American Red Cross Big Sur Ambulance and almost 28 with Big Sur Fire, wearing a pager and being on call 24/7, I will now see how “normal” people live.  You may no longer even recognize me without driving my white Big Sur Fire truck, and yes Nadine, I will now wear another color besides blue!

Sincerely,

Martha Karstens

Chief
