Lest we forget, I just want to voice my feelings since having read that on June 3 less than half of the voters turned out to vote.
I’m trying to figure that out. Let’s step back into history. The colonists took whatever weapons they had, some only strong enough to voice the need for what was right and good, others more enabled. In one way or another, they fought for independence and won. We formed rules and regulations, and one by one did all that could be done to be heard and to hold dear all that caused the creation of those rules. We made a constitution, and in 1791 amendments were ratified that came to become a part of that constitution as well.
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.
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).
Dear graduates, with your graduation you are about leave the comfort of your youth to embark on a new and wonderful portion of your life. Now is the time to grow beyond the security of your youth, your high school years and create new experiences.
Is it really true that I am urging you not to vote? Yes, it’s partly true. Quite possibly you have an interest in several of the local races and may feel passionately about one or more races. It could be Measure A or any of the three local countywide races for office.
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).
