Hanna, Sutter Coast’s credibility is all gone

“The hospital is owned by Sutter Health; Sutter Health is the sole corporate member of the hospital, let’s set that straight right now.” — thus spoke Sutter Hospital’s CEO  (the  shadow presence of Sutter Health Corporation) Mitch Hanna, addressing  Supervisor Roger Gitlin’s query regarding ownership of Sutter Coast Hospital at Tuesday’s meeting of the board. View this sequence on youtube.com/watch?v=Zf9A9KFfQFc, March 8, at the one hour mark.

Support Gitlin to build bypass in five years, term limits to clear out useless politicians

At the Tuesday March 8 (Del Norte County) Board of Supervisors meeting, I heard Supervisor Roger Gitlin ask his fellow supervisors to support him and ask Caltrans to research, select, finance, and build the Last Chance Grade bypass in five years.

Great concerts need better access

Dear Del Norte-Curry Community Concert Association:

Thank you for your wonderful concert series and grants to local schools and community music education programs performed at the Crescent Elk Auditorium.

The recent Russian international artist, Svetlana Smolina, was wonderful, what a talent.

Community needs best and brightest to come together to improve our healthcare

When reading in the Thursday Triplicate that we have stopped Sutter Health from downsizing our local hospital, and we have stopped Sutter’s plan to transfer ownership out of our community, we said kudos to all those who helped win this victory over Sutter Health.

There were thousands of us local citizens who signed the petition protesting Sutter’s plans, including some trusted, local independent doctors who lead the effort. Now that we’re on the right track, let’s band together to bring the hospital back to the outstanding care of yesteryear.

Support struggling fishermen at fish fry

The Community Assistance Network (CAN) would like to thank everyone who has donated to the emergency fund for out-of-work crab fishermen.

Please don’t forget to show your support this afternoon (Saturday, March 5) by attending the Commercial Fishermen’s Association fish fry at the fairgrounds.

Facts of America’s founding cannot be overlooked

I’m responding to Marlowe Thompson’s letter of Feb. 20 in which she exhorts America to return to her God’s side. She ignores, to borrow a phrase, the inconvenient truth that genocide, slavery, and holding women back were the founding father’s religious track.

I suggest reading Howard Zinn’s, “The People’s History of the United States” to understand what men guided by God have wrought. Would your Jesus celebrate or abhor such acts?

Sutter Coast can’t look down a throat?

As a long-term resident of Del Norte County, I write to share my concerns with Sutter Coast Hospital.

Fisherman’s Association helping during crab closure

As a member of the newly formed Crescent City Commercial Fishermen’s Association, formerly the Del Norte Fishermen’s Marketing Association, we feel that we were left out of the article on Feb. 18 “Crab season depends on whole state.”

Addie Meedom great with our loved ones

I am writing this letter for two reasons. First off, I am thankful our community has a facility such as Addie Meedom to care for our loved ones. I know first hand how well the elderly are being loved and cared for, due to the fact that I worked as part of the team for 16 years and under five administrators. I am now retired but continue my involvement with the current administration and staff.

I worked with the current Administrator Paul Silva for over two years and I do believe in his ability to oversee and run Addee Meedom. It takes a certain kind of person to work with the elderly. Paul and his staff take this job very seriously and have the residents’ care and safety as a top priority. Any time the families or residents had a complaint, Paul would always stop what he was doing to investigate and work with all involved to come up with a solution.

We are watching McClure’s every move

Recently the (Eureka) Times-Standard printed a succinct but scathing editorial re: the Coastal Commission’s ouster of Charles Lester. One of the “back room villains” it referred to was the North Coast’s very own Martha McClure, who not only voted to remove Lester, but also propelled the commission’s decision to hide the process behind closed doors.

When McClure stated her desire for her district to “update their coastal land use plans without more aid from the commission’s staff,” I had to laugh at her use of the word “aid” (translation: inconvenient oversight). Now that it’s quite clear she stands with the local Good Ol’ Boys Network, she should be prepared to feel a bit uncomfortable in her post, since we will be watching every move she makes as commissioner.
