Sutter a fake charity enriching executives

This is in response to the Dec. 2 Coastal Voices editorial written by Mr. (Mitch) Hanna, who has attacked someone who opposes Sutter corporation plan.

Mrs. (Beverly) Hussey is a kindhearted elderly lady. who fought bravely to honor the wishes of her late husband, who donated the land for Sutter Coast to build a locally owned hospital.

Fetal tissue, mercury and more in our shots

Let me get this straight. Obama lets every Tom, Dick and Harry over our southern border without a health check, no ID check, no nothing. Then he loads them up in buses and distributes them all across the country.

No one really knows how many because they ran the press off and blackened the windows on the buses, and it’s Americans’ fault that there are 26 cases of measles. Oh please.

Our only recourse is to press Sutter to be open

Now that the Hussey vs. Sutter Coast Hospital lawsuit has settled, we can no longer rely on Mrs. Hussey to stop Sutter from downsizing and taking hospital ownership out of Del Norte County. If we want better local healthcare, at a more reasonable price, we need to keep asking Sutter to come forward, open its books and meeting records, and start being open and honest with our community.

Compassion for others beats self-pity any day; life is good

Wanted to say that last Sunday after church, I stopped to check mail at the post office.  There on the floor at the far left corner was waking up, a homeless man, having slept a while there.  It just happened I had been thinking on a Christmas story where I had written about what seemed a homeless man visiting a home just as Christmas Day arrived, and how he got to come in and “visit” as he warmed up from the cold.

Sewer rate changes just another way to get more money from citizens

I see where a new water/sewer rate structure is being proposed with larger charges based upon the amount of water each household uses during each billing period. At first glance that may seem fair, at least until you realize that you are being billed extra for water that never goes down the sewer.

Water used for cooking, drinking, gardening, decorative bird baths and ponds, childrens toys, even car washing, never goes into the sewer, yet you would pay extra for that water and the sewer.

Union: DHSS staff dedicated, hard-working, compassionate

This is in response to the Dec. 7 article “Homeless’ Breakfast Club 2.5 Months Strong.”

Besides being an employee of Del Norte County Health & Human Services (DHHS), I am also president of the Miscellaneous/Professional employee’s union, DNCEA SEIU 1021. It is as union representative that I write in support of DHSS employees.

Unfortunately your article and DHHS director, Ms. Pierson, painted a negative view of DHHS workers, one that the union disagrees with.

U.S. border security has been in tatters for years

By now it is abundantly clear to me that America’s citizens must rely on their own devices for their and their family’s security.

With the southern border in tatters for over a decade while immigration officers have been doing a balancing act and local ranchers have been fighting a losing battle against the trespassing, destructive hordes, the U.S. has seemingly lost its southern demarcation. Under the Obama administration it even appears to have been carpeted in preparation for the gun show their ATF put on.

The Cartels have moved much of their operation closer to their clientele while the open door beckons to the erstwhile maniac with a penchant for the blood of unarmed Americans of all ages . The slaughter of innocent party goers in San Bernardino by two well armed jihadis has a number of lessons for those of us who will learn from it.

Two Boys Scouts helped me when I was in need

I would like to send a personal thank you to two boy scouts who were at the craft fair Dec. 5, selling mistletoe to raise money to help others. I am sorry I do not know their names.

While being a volunteer gift wrapper in a side section of the craft fair, I underwent an emergency situation, that could well have turned into a 9-1-1 call.

Actual wording of Constitution

I want to thank Evelyn Cook for her comments on Christmas in last Saturday’s paper (Christmas under fire, follow Jesus’ teachings).

It amazes me what people really think the Constitution says. “Separation of Church and State” is a statement in writings among several constitutional authors.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Fight continues against Sutter Coast’s greed

First, I would like to thank the Triplicate for assigning reporter David Anderson to cover the Healthcare District Board meetings. There are many in the community who believe that the fight against Sutter Health is lost. Be assured that four of your Healthcare District board members are working diligently to take action that will bring a full service hospital back to our community.

As reported in the Triplicate, board member Clarke Moore has managed to obstruct the board from moving forward.
