‘Macheads’ rejoice: 10 years for local group

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of the Redwood Coast Mac Users Group, formed back in October of 2003, to help out isolated Mac users in Del Norte and Curry counties on the Redwood Coast. 

We met in all sorts of places and had members come and go and come back again over the years. As Apple changed its line-up of devices by introducing the iPod in 2001, the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad in 2010, the emphasis on just being a Mac Users Group (MUG) changed to include all of Apple’s creations as more people bought those instead of Macs. 

But we survived as other MUGs have faded away due to easy access to information on the Internet, instant help with a Google search and sometimes to just plain old disinterest.

We have prevailed and will keep meeting every month because it’s good to just talk with friends and people with the same interests that we Macheads have. 


Thanks Oct. 15, 2013

Doctor is Lebanon-bound

As most of my patients already know, soon I will be leaving my practice in Crescent City to pursue an opportunity in my home country of Lebanon. My decision to depart after more than four years of practice in Del Norte County was difficult, but my new job will allow me to spend more time with my family, especially my young children.

I would especially like to thank Sutter Health for all of the support that I have received from both the local hospital and the larger organization. I came here only because they recruited me aggressively and at significant expense. Additionally, over the past years, they have spent tens of thousands of dollars on new equipment and additional training for me, which has allowed me to expand services and bring new procedures to the women of the area.

I have worked in a number of other hospitals around the country, and I have found that Sutter treats physicians better than virtually any other place I have practiced.

I am proud of our obstetrics and gynecology service at Sutter Coast Hospital, and feel that we practice at the highest standards. There are certainly services that we are unable to provide here, simply due to our small size, but for the things that we are about to do, we are as good as any hospital anywhere, large or small.

Cleanup set for Sunday

On Sunday, citizens and neighbors will be conducting a roadside trash pick-up the length of Parkway Drive. All citizens are invited to participate in this community cleanup from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers will meet at the All Tribes Church on Parkway Drive at 10 a.m.  

This cleanup is being coordinated by the Dundas Neighborhood Watch and was the idea of a 10-year-old member of the group who became concerned about the trash she saw while walking along Parkway Drive with her parents. 

“When someone as young as 10 recognizes that there is a problem with trash, it sort of brings it front and center,” said neighbor Shelly Presler.
