First - a huge congratualations to all - take a bow.

Doctors Cody and Maldonado - thank you for being so smart and steadfast in helping us though this crisis.

Pastor Baines - your work toward endng systemic racism and lifting up low-income people has mattered.

A question to Weekly staff - there seems to be a doubling up of the Professional Category, and no Volunteer Award mentioned. Explain please.

Hi felix -- Thanks for pointing out that error. I've corrected the article accordingly: Hal Mickelson and Roger Smith are receiving the outstanding *citizen volunteer* Tall Tree awards.
