Coastal Voices: Medical Society against regionalization

As chairman of the Del Norte District of the Humboldt-Del Norte Medical Society, past trustee of the California Medical Association and the local urologist in Crescent City for the past 21 years, it is my responsibility to share with you the Medical Society’s policy statement on Sutter Health’s activities in our community.


Coastal Voices: Does Del Norte have an emperor?

I write this piece in response to the arrogant behavior by Board of Supervisors Chairman David Finigan. At a Board of Supervisors meeting, Chairman Finigan spoke and acted like he was the emperor of Del Norte County. I urge all residents of this County to watch the video of the Board meeting for May 27 (31:30-01:08:00).

Did You Know?: We do not have to vote on everything

Coastal Voices: Correction: ‘Good news out of Sacramento’

My good friend Bob Berkowitz must have gotten a dose of bad data in his “Did You Know?” column (“Good news, bad news out of Sacramento,” May 20).


Coastal Voices: No loss of services under Critical Access

On behalf of my fellow Board members and our Medical Executive Committee of the medical staff of Sutter Coast Hospital, I would like to share what differences you can expect to see as a patient or consumer of health services if Sutter Coast Hospital is granted approval to become a Critical Access Hospital (CAH).


Coastal Voices: Is bringing bigger trucks on highway worth risk?

Looking at the beautiful computer-generated picture of the proposed new Middle Fork Smith River Bridge on Highway 199 on the front page of the May 7 edition of the Triplicate, one might wonder why anyone would be opposed to the creation of such an impressive structure. What is not shown or told, which misleads the public on the real impact of this Caltrans project, are the 16,000 cubic yards of earth that are to be removed to widen a curve, exposing a huge cut creating soil erosion into our pristine Smith River. The current bridge has not been condemned from old age. The new bridge is primarily proposed to allow the largest STAA trucks to travel this narrow winding highway, creating increasingly unsafe industrial driving conditions for the common motorist on our Smith River scenic roadway.
