POMEROY, Wash. – It is autumn in this small town along Pataha Creek, tucked into the rolling hills south of the Snake River. The downtown is populated with a handful of shoppers, pickups and minivans. It boasts nine churches and two bars. This wheat farming town also has the distinction of being the seat of Garfield County – with 2,400 people, the state’s least populous. These aren’t heady times for Pomeroy. The price of wheat is down, big-box stores in larger towns lure away local dollars, and the recession has delivered a wallop. Yet there’s a bit of rejoicing about the arrival of the town’s newest resident. After two years of searching, Pomeroy has a local doctor again.
