Lew Oliver Recovering

By Daniel Van Riper

This past February Save the Pine Bush’s intrepid lawyer, Lew
Oliver, was robbed and shot in the leg by bandits while he was
attempting to take a much-needed vacation on the Caribbean island of
St. Kitts. Lew was attacked while walking through a forest preserve
on the island and rescued by the St. Kitts army. He was quickly
transported back to Albany, and spent several weeks at Albany Med,
where he was listed in fair condition. Apparently the wound is in
the upper part of his leg, and will take a while to heal.

At last report he has been transferred to St. Peter’s Hospital and
is going through rehab. He has not been too keen on receiving
visitors and has refused to talk to reporters, but it seems he is
already getting back to work.

All of us volunteers at Save the Pine Bush wish Lew the best of
health and a speedy recovery.
