A matter of trust

A little over a year ago, we wrote an editorial in this space entitled, “Why should we care?” “Why should we care about any further investigation of the money that disappeared from the Tony and Barbara Matulich Charitable Trust?” was the question we posed. After all,...

Center serves women at Hazel Hawkins

With the five-year anniversary of the Women’s Center at Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital, we would like to thank the community that supported Measure L that provided the bond money to build not only the Women’s Center, but the Emergency Department as well. Many thanks...

Opinion: Threats and promises

It's like someone got the turkey wishbone and pulled both ends wishing for business as usual. Nodes keep popping up like ducks in a carnival shooting gallery. It's time leaders faced reality: time to be creative, time to be thoughtful.
