Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall and the county’s Dial-a-Ride service have been inseparable for a number of weeks, ever since he slipped and fell on a grassy hillside off Bayshore Drive. Dial-a-Ride has been the only way he could get around town, “and a wonderful service it has been. It’s been a real life-saver for me.” Wife Carole has been a part-time personal driver for her husband but she also has her own private business to run which keeps her in the store a lot.
Well, those inconveniences are about to end. Hall told News Lincoln County today that he has been given his doctor’s clearance to resume driving as long as he doesn’t put too much weight on his left leg which he thoroughly broke in the fall. Hall had nothing but praise for Dial-a-Ride that he can call (well ahead of time) to be picked up and dropped off at various times of the day.
So starting tomorrow Hall will be relying on a walker to get him from point “A to B” on the ground, but his own vehicle for longer commutes. Hall said it’ll be quite a bit longer before the cast comes off.
