Publicize requirements of Critical Access

Now that Sutter Coast Hospital has proposed converting to a Critical Access facility, I understand there are rules and regulations it has to follow. I feel these requirements should be publicized so I know what to expect or not expect should I become an inpatient.

Policy amounts to censorship

I was appalled to read the editor’s new policy of not printing letters regarding our hospital in the paper any longer (only the few he hand-picks).

Sutter Health operating with selfish motives

Critical Access was funded in order to improve health-care access by subsidizing tiny hospitals. By cutting beds to qualify, Sutter Health is using the program to reduce access to care in order to increase its payments from Medicare.

No thought to thought experiment on marriage

In response to Bob Berkowitz’s Feb. 22 Did You Know? column, “Wondering how far our ‘civil rights’ can be taken,” Bob, I had to explain to your cat that you were just writing about a thought experiment when you conjectured about making her a domestic partner. She’ll come out from under the couch now.

Problem with ditching tsunami sirens in favor of cell phones

This is regarding the Feb. 18 article, “Counties weigh siren cost.”

My question is, who would pay for the cost of furnishing cell phones and the monthly costs associated with them for every household in Del Norte County that doesn’t have a cell phone?

Valued pelican statue stolen from driveway

For 25 years a concrete statue of a pelican stood in my driveway in front of my garage. It was a gift from my late husband and had great sentimental value to me.

Clarke Moore taking both sides of issue

Will the real Clarke Moore please stand up?

I was intrigued by an ad in the Feb 6 Triplicate submitted by the Del Norte County Healthcare District in which it is stated that the board voted unanimously in its Jan. 28 meeting that Sutter Coast Hospital should remain a locally owned acute care hospital.

Execs paid millions as Sutter claims hardship

I would like to add my name to the thousands of local residents who are opposing the recent decision by Sutter Health and the Sutter Coast Hospital Board of Directors to downsize the hospital in order to qualify for higher Medicare payments under the federal Critical Access program. If Sutter Coast is permitted to downsize, there will only be 25 acute care hospital beds for the communities of Crescent City and Brookings.

Government must analyze state of Jefferson proposal

I am writing in response to Sue Sullivan’s letter (“Jefferson backers should provide needed info,” Feb. 13) in which she calls for “an independent fiscal analysis being provided by the group that supports the state of Jefferson.”

Would Ms. Sullivan actually accept such an analysis by the Jefferson proponents as “independent”? Of course not.

Thanks to police officer who made week better

The other night at about 9 p.m., I went to McDonald’s on my bike. I ordered five burgers and five fries and on the way home my bag broke. I had five burgers and one order of fries scattered on the ground.
