Letters to the editor are understandably a well-read part of any newspaper. After all, they represent the direct voices of readers, unfiltered except by judicious editing if the newspaper is doing its job.
I recently reviewed the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that Sutter Coast Hospital is required to do.
It is very informative and I hope members of the community, the current Sutter Coast Hospital local Board members and the members of the recently disbanded Steering Committee who voted for Critical access and Regionalization take a good look at it.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. As a college student at the time, I was heavily involved in the free speech movement on the campus at San Francisco State University while many of my friends had volunteered to participate in the civil rights struggles in Mississippi.
We were fighting racial and ethnic discrimination that was practiced against minorities. We were the innocent children of the ’50s who became the activists of the ’60s.

He had said he was “ready to go home” some time ago as his health deteriorated.
He had retired as pastor of Oceanview Baptist Church several years ago and moved to Stockton to be near his daughter, frequently coming back to Crescent City to visit those of us who had been members of his church.
The Jan. 28 edition of The Triplicate contained two letters, raising some points again about the future of the hospital and expressing the desire to see Asante or some other hospital company here to guarantee “full service.”
As readers may recall, I was one of three physicians who joined the steering committee for the Camden Group study. The Camden Group went to great lengths to explore the proposal of transferring affiliation of the hospital to a different corporation.
I’m replying to an article written by Jessica Cejnar, entitled “Supervisors defer issue of new state,” that appeared in the Triplicate on Jan. 16.
She paraphrased comments made by Supervisor Martha McClure at a meeting of the Board of Supervisors, where McClure “spoke out against a survey the Big Rock CSD (Hiouchi) sent to its customers” regarding the Jefferson state initiative.
I guess you can say I am a new mom. I had my daughter last August but have helped raise my step-daughter since she was just a few days old and that was December 2010.
I have always heard the love of a mother was a rare one and now I understand. I knew right away the moment I looked into my baby’s beautiful brown eyes that I was the luckiest mom in the whole world. And because of this new found love I have a new appreciation for every day, every holiday.
Someone on TV was saying the other day that even if it rained every day from now to the first of May, we still would not be able to “catch up” to our normal amount of rainfall for the year.
I hope that person was wrong. While it may be making things wet and sloppy, and soaking us as we run from house to car to work and back, it is bringing much-needed moisture. It continually amazes me to see plants that looked absolutely hopelessly lost spring back after a night of rain.
