0 C E A N T R A V E L Rosanne Pack photo In a daring raid on a Harbor Healthcare Center hide.out, peace officers (l-r) Sheriff Joyce Eisner and her deputies, Gwyneth Moyer and Florence Maloney apprehend some bawdy babes from the old west, (l-r) Maggie Tice and Olive Ward. Harbor Healthcare Center goes very wild and west By Rosanne Pack The jails were full and the sher- iff's deputies had itchy fingers in the usually sedate and calm Har- bor Healthcare Center. The obser- vance of National Nursing Home Week caused the residents and staff to "Go West" as they turned their facility into Dodge City. All week, May 11-17, staff and residents of Harbor "Dodge City" Heaithcare recognized and cele- brated the many contributions made to the community by health care facilities all over the country. In keeping with the wild west theme, locations throughout the facility were renamed to create the feeling of the old west. Wide brimmed cowboy hats and scuffed up western boots had re- placed uniforms and street clothes. The Duke had been on duty in the director's office, and a Native American Indian erected a teepee in the front lobby to watch the fun. And, certain nefarious deeds caused several staff members to be designated "bad guys," com- plete with wanted posters stuck up around the halls and meeting rooms. Although the bandits and rustlers tried to disguise them- selves with eye glasses and some suspiciously fake facial hair, most citizens of Dodge City picked out such characters as Olive Ward, Maggie Tice and Sandy Dole. The citizenry of Harbor "Dodge City" Healthcare were protected by the capable team of Sheriff Joyce Eisner and her deputies, Gwyneth Moyer and Florence Maloney. The sheriff and deputies were on steady patrol in the halls, and several desperadoes were thrown in the hoosgow throughout the week. Eisner said that her deputies were quick to capture and truss up any who were on the wrong side of the law. The deputieswere out- fitted with pop-guns and badges, and each had her own steed of the stick breed. When not behind bars, Dole said that the staged western events included meals and activities in all areas of the center. Mail was delivered by Pony Ex- press, and meals rolled up to rooms via the chuck wagon or were served at the OK Corral. Al- though meals were peaceful most of the week, there were rumors that a shoot-out on the order of the infamous gunfight might breakout later at the OK Corral. A local blacksmith and a troupe of square dancers were included in the week's festivities. Although details were sketchy, a cow patty pitching contest al- legedly took place early in the  week.
