New sewer and water rates not fair to many customers

With regard to the new sewer and water bill, it does not take an Einstein to figure out what is being done to all ratepayers.

The City Council members make me think of the old time carpetbaggers, someone not paying their fair share.

Sutter Coast seems to have spending problem

Great article by Curtis Boewer (“Sutter’s financial records don’t support its claims,” Dec. 27) in the Triplicate Coastal Voices section. The facts pertaining to our hospital situation ferreted out and presented by Mr. Boewer are interesting and informative, stuff that everyone in our community needs to know. Of course there is a lot of other stuff we need to know about the workings of the Sutter Health Corporation, but because of the secret ways of the people running the outfit, we are probably stuck with a fairly large amount of ignorance.

Car club’s donation much appreciated

I would like to thank the Northern Knights Car Club for their generous donation to the Major Project Fund of the Crescent City Elks Lodge #1689. 

The monies donated to this fund help California-Hawaii Elks Major Project Inc. fund 32 paid therapists and preschool vision screeners hired by CHEMPI to help disabled children when no other organizations can or will. These CHEMPI professional therapists and preschool vision screeners travel, sometimes great distances, to help children get care they need.

Public pay phones should be available for those who can’t afford a cell phone

Last month my husband had an appointment in Brookings with a cardiologist. He’d previously seen the doctor in years past.

Upon arriving in Brookings at what had previously been the cardiologist’s office, we were informed that his location had moved and they did not know where.

Patients will feel extra cost of Sutter changes

I’m writing to let readers know that if the Board of Directors of Sutter Coast Hospital follows through with their plans to downsize our hospital to meet federal Critical Access requirements, there will be an additional cost to Medicare.

According to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services, converting to Critical Access will allow the hospital to bill Medicare more than triple the amount the hospital now receives from Medicare under the hospital’s current designation as a non-Critical Access Hospital.

County workers honored for another year’s service

The final Board of Supervisors meeting for 2014 was an occasion of proclamations of gratitude for work well done on our behalf. Department heads who are retiring from county service were commended for their accomplishments. Sheriff Wilson thanked the board for its support and reported that he was leaving the department in better condition than when he came aboard. Dawn Langston was thanked for her years as treasurer-tax collector and reminded everyone that the next day was tax day. Louise Wilson, retiring assessor, introduced her staff with comments about each one and thanked her predecessor, Jerry Cochran. Supervisor Michael Sullivan gave a heartfelt good-bye and thanks for the support of the board as he leaves his position. Chairman Finnegan remarked that being an elected official means sacrifice of time and energy.

Sutter’s focus on money sends patient to Oregon

I would like to tell my fellow citizens that my doctor has moved to Brookings, Ore., and I have followed her even though I continue to live in Del Norte County.

I’m a retired nurse and was more than satisfied with her practice, along with being very dissatisfied with practices I saw at Sutter Coast Hospital ruled by Sutter Health actions and policies.

Rare moonlight rainbow highlights nature’s beauty

It started out as another typical duck hunting day, getting up early to head out to the Lake Earl Wildlife Area.  As I headed through Pacific Shores toward Lake Tolowa and the Pacific Ocean, a very bright full moon hung halfway up the western sky illuminating the landscape and road. Out on the ocean the glow of high-intensity lights from crabbers spread across the low westerly view. In the eastern sky a cloud bank hung low over northern Crescent City and Fort Dick.

Handicapped and disabled in county rely on having ‘real’ hospital in town

Despite my unpleasant view of our local hospital, I do not want it to change from what it is now to a smaller version.

Tragic reminder that life jackets save lives

My husband, Kevin, was the bystander who pulled Jay Jackson from the Smith River last Saturday. 

The two of us, along with another bystander, performed CPR for at least 20 minutes on the shore until help arrived. There were several other bystanders who offered assistance in one way or another, from blowing a whistle  to hiking up the trail to the road to help first responders find us. Given the remote location and rough terrain, the first responders had understandable difficulty in getting to the scene quickly.
