Rush in custody through illness

A hearing in Del Norte Superior Court for alleged con-woman Shirley Rush, 65, was postponed Monday after another last-minute medical event sent the suspect to the emergency room.

Shortly before 10 a.m. on March 28, Rush’s defense attorney Rebecca Linkous told Judge Darren McElfresh her client could not appear for her court appearance that day as she had been transported from Del Norte County Jail to Sutter Coast Hospital earlier in the morning.

McElfresh confirmed with Linkous that Rush was still in custody of the Del Norte Sheriff’s Office while being treated at the hospital and agreed to postpone her setting until the following day.

Editor's note: We asked Father Gregory Villaescusa of St. Joseph Catholic Church to share his Easter sermon with Triplicate readers.

This is the first question the Mah Nistana of the Haggadah, required of the youngest child to be asked at a Passover. The Avadim Hayinu response summarizes the entire reason for the meal:

Slaves were we to Pharaoh in Egypt,

and (or but) the Lord our God brought us out

from there with a mighty hand

Caltrans minimizes harm of 101 collapse

Last Chance Grade failure wouldn't cut off DN from south for long, official says

Even if Del Norters’ worst fears regarding Last Chance Grade were realized, Caltrans’ Sebastian Cohen assured them Crescent City wouldn’t be cut off from Klamath for long.

Cohen, project manager for Last Chance Grade, told Del Norte County residents at a town hall meeting Wednesday that a large and a moderate-scale slip out of the slide-prone stretch of U.S. Highway 101 has not happened, but if it does, the agency would “put whatever road we needed to to get traffic through.”

“This area is not going to be cut off long term from access,” Cohen said. “It could be that it’s a couple weeks, it could be a month, who knows, there will always be something there that we can cut back to and get it open.”

Library outlines scenarios to replace building

As the Library Board continues to carefully watch their finances and schedule upcoming fundraisers, plans continue to move forward on the Building Replacement Project.

At the board’s meeting Thursday, Trustee Mechelle Webb said she met with a commercial contractor at the Library last week and asked him to write up proposals on the following scenarios:

Remodel the current building. Add a second story with expansive southern views, an elevator, a coffee shop with a pavilion addition on the west side of the existing building. Use the donated empty lot as outdoor recreation space and parking. The upstairs would have more books, elevator access and the bottom floor would have meeting/conference rooms and media space.

State mandates drive higher cost of care in Del Norte vs. Oregon

Medical bills for the same procedures can come with very different price tags, and some may appear excessive or unfair.

A hospital in Medford, Oregon charged $3,335 for a colonoscopy that Sutter Coast Hospital in Crescent City charges more than $9,124 for, according to Virginia Bostwick, a former nurse at Sea Side and Sutter Coast Hospital who provided the Triplicate with a copy of hospital billings from February of this year.

Upon closer inspection, there are reasons for the differences, indicating it pays to educate one’s self about available health care choices.
