Medford Mayor Gary Wheeler is recovering from a heart attack that he suffered over the weekend. After participating in Pear Blossom events on Saturday, he began to feel pressure in his chest while having dinner with his wife later that evening. Wheeler checked himself into Rogue Regency Medical Center where he underwent surgery to insert two stents to open an artery. Doctors discovered that one of the main arteries to his heart was almost completely closed. Wheeler was released from the hospital on Tuesday.
