House Calls: Babies really do come with instructions

Editor’s note: House Calls runs every other Thursday. Today’s column is written by Christina Seed, a doctor of osteopathic medicine at Sutter Coast Community Clinic.

“Congratulations and good luck!” said the nurse at Sutter Coast Hospital as we snapped our newborn’s car seat into its place and buckled ourselves in for the short drive home.

As we were leaving the parking lot, we hit the first speed bump, and reality hit as well.

Although I had crossed this particular speed bump dozens of times before, it suddenly seemed much bigger.  “Go slowly!” I advised my husband, frightened that our son would be catapulted out of the car.


Memories of the 1964 flood

Editor’s note: Chuck Blackburn’s column appears on the third Thursday of every month.

Rural America is who we are and where we live. It is so beautiful but sometimes very harsh. We seem to thrive on our ability to adapt from the good times to those times that are tragic.

Recent community challenges bring back the memories of events that occurred in 1964. The Good Friday tsunami of that year really tested this community in its ability to recover.  Bill Stamps, Mr. KPOD Radio, set the tone with “Comeback Town U.S.A.” Every day he drove home his message to us all from his perch in good old KPOD.

I’m sure that none of us were thinking about the upcoming rainy season of 1964–65. The late fall started with cool, rainy weather in late November and early December. Snow at the higher levels was real common and quite deep. We hade a series of storms in the middle of December and the temperatures started to warm.


Catching up with former Warrior tight end Nick Baker

One of my favorite pastimes as a former Warrior coach is to look back at past players position-by-position and try to pick my dream team.

When I look at the tight end position one name always pops up and that is Nick Baker.
