Church Notebook: It all added up to a lot of shoeboxes for kids

It may not be Christmas season, but we’ve certainly had some days cold enough. I’m very glad not to be living on the other side of the country right now. After all, a good part of my reasoning in moving back to Crescent City was to get away from all that stuff.

If you’ve never had to drive to or from work at midnight in the midst of a blizzard, you can’t imagine what it’s like.


Letters to the Editor Jan. 25, 2014

We benefit more from Calif. than we contribute

I am so proud of our Board of Supervisors and its intelligent decision to really look at the pros and cons before jumping on the bandwagon of the idea of a state of Jefferson (“Supervisors defer issue of new state,” Jan. 16).


Coastal Voices: Coming soon: a column that is in need of a name

For the last 10 years or so, I have been writing articles for this newspaper under the banner of “Coastal Voices.”

The basic theme of these articles has been how state and federal legislation affects, you, the local Del Norter.


House Calls: Blood clots: Here are ways to prevent them

House Calls runs monthly. Today’s column is written by Doris Fitch, a registered nurse at Sutter Coast Hospital and trainer at College of the Redwoods.

Hospital care often involves prevention of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli.


Church Notebook: Bible studies provide another path for worship

How many of your church friends do you see every week on days other than Sunday (or Saturday, if that is your day of worship)?

For lots of folks, that one weekly service seems to be sufficient. And for them, I wonder — do they know what they are missing?


Coastal Voices: It's time to bring affordability, accountability to the hospital

Many people have been asking about Sutter Health’s plans for the communities of Crescent City and Brookings now that the Sutter Coast Hospital (SCH) Board in Crescent City has voted to downsize the only hospital in our region to a Critical Access facility in order to qualify for higher Medicare payments. 

I had stopped writing newsletters after the SCH Board, acting on the advice of Sutter Health attorney and Regional Vice President Michael Duncheon, voted to censure me for allegedly breaching Sutter’s confidentiality rules. In my roles as hospital chief of staff, and a member of the hospital Board of Directors, I felt the public had a right to be aware of, and included in, important changes at our region’s only hospital — changes which will affect all of us.


Coastal Voices: Even with Critical Access, full-service hospital remains intact

The new year brings a change of physician leadership at Sutter Coast Hospital. Dr. Nikki Schwartz was recently elected by the medical staff to serve as chief of staff.

She is a board-certified family physician and works for Sound Inpatient Physicians as the co-medical director of the inpatient hospital medicine group at Sutter Coast Hospital. She has previously served as the hospital’s chair of medicine.


Coastal Voices: Internet redundancy: Perseverance pays off

With the recent completion of the Grants Pass to Crescent City broadband redundant infrastructure project, I feel compelled to make the public aware of one of our most recent success stories.

This project is a part of the “HAS199.Com” project list (“Harbor, Airport, Sewer, Highway 199 and Internet”) and will serve our community for years to come and set the foundation for Del Norte County being the “hub” for broadband infrastructure on the North Coast.


Church Notebook: Many churches enjoy game nights

I never thought I’d say this, but I think I miss the rain!

That driving blast of water coming at me sideways that taught me when I first came here that using an umbrella was a lesson in futility. The rain isn’t really so bad, but I sure don’t like the wind.


California Focus: California’s silly season: Two plans going nowhere

The end of December and early January is usually a downtime in the co-dependent businesses of government and news, replete with vacation breaks for many. This can often net flaky ideas and words far more coverage than they deserve.

So it was when ex-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called state legislators a bunch of “girlie men,” early in his term, only to have those same folks later best him at every turn. And when ex-Gov. Gray Davis first suggested the same lawmakers exist to “implement my vision.”
