ALPINE ---- Sometimes there just aren’t enough words to describe a really nice guy.
George Wood was a father, grandfather and almost a great-grandfather beloved by his family when he died of cancer on March 30.
Kind, helpful, honest, generous, hard worker, successful businessman, active, pleasant, fun-loving ---- those are some of Wood’s many qualities, according to family, friends and acquaintances.
Alpine has long been known for the restorative value of its climate—especially for those suffering from asthma. For years there was a sign in the community that touted: Welcome to Alpine - Best Climate in the USA, by Government Report.
On April 5, 2013 the Alpine Sheriff Station hosted “Kidzwatch” a program to help explain safety to children. Before starting the one-day safety course the children were sworn in as ‘Junior Deputies’ and took a quick tour of the station. They got to see the offices Alpine Law Enforcement work in, the holding cells, where criminals are processed and even the kitchen! Thanks to our local sheriff station, these children are ready and know how to act in a: fire, gun, animal, bullying, and various emergency situations.
