Coastal Voices: There’s no sugar-coating in-patient bed reduction

“Grandma,what big teeth you have!” Why does that childhood  story come to my mind as I read Linda Horn’s latest attempt (“Same services offered under Critical Care,” Coastal Voices, April 3) to assuage community trepidations over Sutter Health Corporation’s decisions to convert Sutter Coast Hospital  to Critical Access and the possibility of moving its governing board hundreds of miles away from the community?

Maybe it was the wolf’s cloaking of his evil intentions as well as his ravenous appetite that sparked the comparison. It may also have been the vulnerability of Little Red Riding Hood as she began to realize that appearances can be deceiving, which is seemingly what emerges within our community with each sugar-coated apologetic  presented to the community by Ms. Horn.

Send a message to Obama, Dems in Nov.

Let’s be clear as we approach the November elections. Not a single Republican voted in favor of Obamacare in 2010. The Democrats had control over the House and the Senate the first two years of the Obama administration but it still took them two years to pass Obamacare in December 2010.

Did you know? Fighting technology will not save jobs

What are your friends up to? The first place I look is on Facebook. Even though I hardly ever post anything there, I do enjoy seeing what everyone else is doing, saying and learning.

So, as I was enjoying breakfast at Fisherman's Restaurant recently with my trusty Ipad for company, I came across Greg Forsht’s post.

Watch groups, not sheriff, responsible for crime drop

I’m Mike Marler founder of the Bertsch Tract Neighborhood Watch.

I noticed Sheriff Dean Wilson’s ad taking credit for the crime rate going down since he has been in office. I just want to point out that several Neighborhood Watch groups started up since he has been in office, and I would like to give them the credit for the crime rate dropping, not Dean Wilson.

E&P: New wave to catch; an election to cover

This isn’t what I’d intended.

The plan was to finish my career at the Triplicate, then someday retire right here between the redwoods and the sea where the housing is affordable, the traffic almost nonexistent and the hiking trails unpopulated.

Instead, Laura and I are moving to a place where the housing is overpriced, the traffic is congested and the hiking trails are … popular.

Isn’t life strange?

Questions about Sutter's finances still unanswered

Recently I had a procedure done at the short stay section of Sutter Coast Hospital, and it was a wonderful experience. Then I attended a meeting at the Flynn Center where nearly 90 people were there to discuss the hospital, but no answers were given to the questions asked.

There have been recent articles in the Triplicate, but again, questions about Sutter Health’s real financial status and other questions have not been answered. How about a short history of our hospital? Who owns it? What has changed? Didn’t we have a local person donate the property on which it was built? Wasn’t that a wonderful thing?
