A pot of mashed potatoes steamed on the stove, a tray of meatballs sat on the kitchen counter next to a vat of beef stock, but Charlie Fore was still hard at work.

Scores of wine glasses and water goblets gleamed behind the concrete bar. Prints of vintage paintings and original artwork mingled with postcards and ads depicting Crescent City’s early days.

Lawsuit targets Critical Access

Beverly Hussey contends hospital violated contract 

A lawsuit against Sutter Coast Hospital has been filed by the widow of the donor of the land where it was built, saying that plans to convert the facility to a Critical Access Hospital violates the donation contract stating Sutter must maintain an acute care hospital.

The lawsuit filed by Beverly Hussey also claims that three hospital board members who are also employees of Sutter Health violated the obligations of a charitable trust by not recusing themselves from votes to convert to Critical Access and to “regionalize” (merge the local hospital with a Bay Area-based Sutter corporation).  By voting, the board members were acting in their own interest and not the community’s, according to the suit.

Hensel, a fisherman based in Crescent City for 30 years, is offering a five-week subscription of two pounds of rockcod each week starting May 1.
