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.

Coastal Voices: Same services offered under Critical Access

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of recognizing our staff at The Sutter Coast Hospital Annual Awards Ceremony.

We recognized Clinical Ladder recipients (nurses taking on special projects for the betterment of our patients), employees of the month and employee of the year and our long-tenured employees.

Coastal Voices: Healthcare District working to prevent hospital takeover

As a lifelong resident of Del Norte County, local healthcare provider, and chair of the Del Norte Healthcare District Board, I write to inform readers on the history of Sutter Health in our region, and how your Healthcare District Board is working to preserve and expand your access to affordable health care.

Coastal Voices: Look to future, not a catastrophic past

“Want to vacation in the tsunami capital of the U.S.?”

That’s an unlikely sentence to read, isn’t it? Can you imagine anyone saying it out loud and actually getting a positive response? Who are we appealing to?

Church Notebook: Good Friday, Easter, Passover next month

I don’t know what’s mixed with our recent rains, but I don’t think it’s just water.

Usually a good rain does a great wash job on my truck (it’s white), but lately whatever the stuff is, it’s sticking pretty good. Perhaps it’s pollen, though it’s brown rather than yellow.

Coastal Voices: Is there really no law north of the Klamath?

It was an overcast, windy afternoon outside Newark, N.J. The forecast storm overhead was replaced by the one that always attended the phrase, “Wait until your father gets home.”

On this occasion, I had back-talked a teacher in my eighth-grade math class. I was grounded for a month and ordered to personally apologize to Mr. Ortiz.

Did you know? Supermajority: Sing kumbaya!

Have you noticed how quiet and peaceful the political climate is in Sacramento these days? Not one political fight has broken out between Democrats and Republicans. Every single piece of legislation easily passes through the committee process then on to the full Senate and Assembly and then is signed by the governor. You could almost call it a love fest. Let’s all sing kumbaya?

It certainly is a significant change from the old days just several years ago when state budgets were bitterly fought over. Increasing taxes was a big issue between the two parties and the state budget would even be days, if not weeks, late. But not today.

Church Notebook: Spring is here, with Easter and Passover services near

Thursday was pretty nice for the first day of spring. The sun was bright even if it wasn’t too warm.

I’m looking forward to days when I can sit on the back porch with my coffee in the morning, soaking up the sun and admiring the special things that are growing in the backyard. A friend at the hospital gave me two rhubarb roots a couple weeks ago, and they are doing nicely — maybe some strawberry rhubarb pie next year; they’ll need this year to settle in to their new “home.”

The race is officially on between me and the masked bandits — my apple trees are in full bloom.

Coastal Voices: New-state plan vague, dangerous to Del Norte

Given the small amount of information provided, and having had a discussion with the proponents of the state of Jefferson advisory measure for the June 3 ballot, the Executive Board of the Del Norte County Employees Association SEIU 1021, representing the miscellaneous and mid-management/professional employees of the County of Del Norte, cannot in good faith support this advisory measure.  

We have grave concerns on the impact the proposed state of Jefferson will have on the dedicated employees of the County of Del Norte as well as the negative repercussions on the general public who we serve.

Coast Guard may leave Klamath

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1958.

The future of the Klamath River’s three-man Coast Guard rescue boat crew was shaded with doubt this week as Klamath Chamber of Commerce President Pat Caldwell told members of the local chamber that for budget reasons Rear Admiral Wood had expressed the opinion that this service not be continued.
