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.


Coastal Voices: Critical Access is better than losing entire hospital

The people of Del Norte and Curry counties have been expressing a broad range of views regarding several issues surrounding Sutter Coast Hospital.


Would enemy drop bomb on Crescent City?

Civil defense in Del Norte County shifted into high gear this week. William Parker, County Chairman, outlined a strenuous program for March and named two of his three city chairmen.

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).


E & P: Special sections are due, including ’64 flashback

The birthing process is under way at the Triplicate for a couple of special sections that will be in readers’ hands by the end of the month.

The semi-annual Coast Vacation Guide will sport a new name and a new design when it appears March 29. Soon after that, Go Wild Rivers Coast will have a companion when the Triplicate and the Curry Coastal Pilot launch a mobile apps platform carrying the same name. It’ll be brimming with regional information for travelers and locals alike.

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.


Better track facilities than the old days

With the start of spring sports at Del Norte High School, I couldn’t help looking back at how they were when I was a
Warrior.

Now when I go to a Warrior track meet I see a large group of boys and girls running on a beautiful all-weather track or high jumping or pole vaulting with great foam- and air-filled pads to land on. This is a great change.

Church Notebook: Church of Christ to begin 31-week series

It may be inconvenient at times, but it’s sure good to see the rain return. Perhaps those requests sent heavenward were delivered right on time!

I can hardly wait to start planting things again, after not being able to do much of it at all last year. My new hip is like a new lease on life, though the other one has decided to “ join the club” and will also be replaced in a few months. If it heals as fast as this one, who knows? Maybe even a small garden this summer will be a  real possibility.


Grist for the mill: Food literacy: Back to future

I recently received an e-mail containing a collection of definitions for the term “food literacy.”

I read through them with interest because I’d been thinking about that phrase ever since taking a food literacy quiz and getting three of the answers wrong. I like to think I’m pretty food literate, so my ego might have been slightly bruised.
