John Calvert had a mild stroke on Tuesday, April 28, at the home of Ray and Ann Goulet. He received immediate treatment and has amazed doctors with his positive attitude and quick recovery. He is currently in rehab and expects to be back to normal very soon. Mr. Calvert's wife, Tammy, reported that he kept the hospital's medical staff entertained and while talking to his doctor did a watch steal on the attending nurse!
