The Lincoln County 4-H Rifle Club in Caliente recently completed their community service project, repainting the helicopter pad in front of the hospital. The pad was originally constructed as an Eagle Scout project by Lawrence Smith of Caliente and had not been repainted since it was first completed in 2000.

The 4-H Club met by the hospital at 8 a.m. and had the project completed by 9:30 a.m. Dr. William Katschke purchased the necessary paint and supplies.
