Church Notebook: Ladies Christian Fellowship mulls 2014 mission

It’s all over and done for another year.

My biggest regret is that we have to pack away all that beautiful music! And, of course, all those lights and decorations that are so pretty — but it’s the music that stays with me. But as fast as time seems to fly anymore, before we know it Christmas will be back again!

In the meantime, I’ll get back to writing, and hopefully, my book will become a reality. Two chapters isn’t much, but it is a beginning. Funny, though, how despite my outline, the story seems to take on a life of it’s own, changing direction, and the importance of various characters. I think this is going to be a very interesting journey!


Coastal Voices: Time to face reality, work with Sutter Health

I would like to take this opportunity to clarify my understanding of the current hospital situation and the framework within which my decision making occurs:

• Seaside Hospital; 1972-87; nurse’s aide, LVN (C/R Del Norte, 1977-78), respiratory therapy technician, registered respiratory therapist, Cardio-Pulmonary Department manager.


California Focus: Allowing anti-Semitism sets dangerous precedent

Less than two years ago, Palestinian students and sympathizers on the University of California’s flagship Berkeley campus dressed up in combat fatigues, “armed” themselves with genuine-looking mock firearms and set up “checkpoints” where they demanded that students attempting to pass tell them if they were Jewish.

There was no immediate outcry on campus, nor any response from administrators or campus police, as there surely would have been if students set up similar “checkpoints” to determine whether students with tan complexions are really African-Americans or whether students conversing in Spanish are undocumented immigrants.


Church Notebook: New Year’s Eve services slated at several churches

Valentine’s Day candies on display! I could hardly believe it.

Christmas was just Wednesday, and we still have New Year’s Eve to go! While all these days can be enjoyable, we just don’t seem to catch a breath in between anymore before there are more things they want us to buy for the next event!


Coastal Voices: Some tips for giving before year’s end

During the holiday season many Del Norte and Curry County residents, from all walks of life, support causes they care about with financial contributions, large and small.

For many nonprofits, a high percentage of donations are made in December (often in the last days or even hours of the year), which allows donors an opportunity to deduct their charitable contributions on their upcoming tax returns.


Coastal Voices: Crucial partnership between state, tribe

As the holidays near, many Americans start planning how and where they will travel to meet up with family all around the U.S.  It is a foreign concept to me.

As an indigenous person, I cannot separate myself and my family from the lifeline of our redwood forests, the Pacific Ocean and the Smith River; we are from and of the land and waters of Northern California. I am a part of the Tolowa Dee-ni’, of the Smith River Rancheria. We have fished and gathered and lived among the redwoods and on the shores of the Pacific since our genesis, and our stewardship of ocean resources like seals, salmon and seaweed resulted in the abundance Europeans found when they came to our land.


Artisan Cuisine: Candied citrus peels a nice holiday treat

Artisan Cuisine is published monthly.

I love taking something normally thrown away like orange peels and turning it into a gourmet treat.

Yeah, instead of the compost bin, you can keep those citrus peels and make them candied and dipped in chocolate. Or, they can be added to holiday cookies for an extra zesty punch of flavor. 


House Calls: Flying out patients common

House Calls runs monthly. Today’s column is written by Wayne Bunn, a case manager at Sutter Coast Hospital.

There is so much talk in the community and through the media about the concerns of patients being transferred out of Sutter Coast Hospital.

This is not a new concern for our hospital. We regularly transport patients out of the area for specialty services or higher level of acuity needs. We also transfer patients for services that can be provided locally because not all medical specialty services have 24-hour call coverage.


Church Notebook: Plenty of local holiday services are coming soon

It’s almost Christmas.

So often, the real reason for Christmas is overlooked  as we go about our myriad chores getting ready for it. I think you all know by now that I like to use plants, pets, family situations — anything we encounter to highlight the importance of faith when I write this.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ, a miracle of birth.


Church Notebook: Complete Grace Lutheran holiday services scheduled

Times have changed!

In the early days of my nursing career, I was reprimanded more than once for making my patients laugh!

It seemed to me that some cheer would help folks who were in the hospital — but some of my supervisors did not agree.

Tuesday, I had my right hip replaced at Three Rivers Hospital in Grants Pass. I came home Thursday, a much shorter stay than that procedure used to take.
