Ceding oversight not an answer

Let’s see if I have this right. Crescent City Council and the Board of Supervisors are looking at giving up more oversight of the DNSWMA, an agency that has been mired in controversy since it completed the tasks originally set for it. The rationale being the current commission is already made up of elected officials.

I hate to point this out to these two august bodies, but should this go forward with the current crop of commissioners only the city will be truly represented as three of the four commissioners represent people who live in Crescent City. If a public commissioner is seated and is also a resident of the city, how is it the bulk of the county is expected to have a say in the activities of the DNSWMA if the Board of Supervisors cede their oversight.

Don’t believe Sutter Coast, especially about Dr. Duncan

On March 9, my husband injured his arm and went to Sutter Coast Urgent Care Clinic. We requested a referral to Dr. Gregory Duncan, the only orthopedic surgeon living in our county.

Here is the problem: The clinic staff would not refer my husband to Dr. Duncan. First, the nurse said Dr. Duncan does not take worker’s compensation (not true). Next, the physician assistant stated Dr. Duncan would not see my husband (also not true, Dr. Duncan has done two surgeries on my husband). Then, the physician assistant told us Dr. Duncan is cutting his practice back (also not true and how would the physician assistant know anyway?).

Gitlin clear choice for community’s health

Our community will elect its leaders this year. Please vote with care. As a senior citizen and former volunteer at Sutter Coast Hospital, health care is my primary concern. Roger Gitlin is the clear choice when it comes to improving local health care.

Hospital ownership is latest of Sutter’s lies

The recent article by David Anderson in last Saturday’s Triplicate finally put to rest the question of who owns Sutter Coast Hospital. First, hospital CEO Mitch Hanna told the Board of Supervisors that Sutter Health owns Sutter Coast Hospital. Next, reporter David Anderson points out that Mr. Hanna’s statement is contradicted by a court filing, which states that Sutter Health does not own any hospitals. Finally, in the face of the truth, Mr. Hanna is forced to take back his prior comment. It turns out that all along, Sutter Coast Hospital, with its local board of directors, owns  Sutter Coast Hospital.

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.

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.

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?
