In praise of all doctors do

On the occasion of National Doctors Day, March 30, I wanted to let you know on behalf of all of us here on the Doctors Hospital of Manteca team how much we truly appreciate having you on our Medical Staff. Doctors Day also marks the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. This is significant symbology because, as a profession, Medical Doctors are not "passive". That is; throughout history, physicians have been much more than treaters of disease – they have been scientists consistently advancing the cause of greater society through research, innovation, and action.

Six mayors & being a SHARP in Manteca

The morning teaser ... How many Manteca ex mayors are still living? Well let's see, there's Mark Oliver, Bill Phillips, Rick Wentworth, Frank Warren, Carlon Perry and yours truly ... Three of the above members belong to the Rotary Club ... One was a member of the Lions Club ... Mark Oliver is considered by some to be "Mr. Manteca Rotary" ... Of course the title of "Mr. Manteca Historian" belongs to Ken Hafer ... Aldo Brocchini will be missed from our community. He was highly respected and that was apparent by the who's who list in attendance at his services.

Most 20-Somethings avoiding shortcuts, taking proven paths

There's been a lot of ink spilled in the national press about how 20-Somethings take the attitude they have to have the latest high-tech gizmo, how their work ethic is flighty and how they live in the moment and don't plan for the future.

Nixing banquet would have sent wrong signal

Why Relay for Life is so important

Compassion is commonly defined as a profound human emotion prompted by the pain of others. More vigorous than empathy, the feeling commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another's suffering. The Buddha says, "compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others."

Prouty: Woman of courage, great storyteller

Years ago, a woman so distraught over the passing of her husband, scaled the chain link fence of the East Union Cemetery under cover of darkness to spend the night next to her departed beloved's grave. Strange as that story may sound, she was the second one to do just that. That's just two of the many interesting – for lack of a better term – stories coming out of the pioneer cemetery since its establishment in 1872.

PG&E? Lie? Now that’s a real shocker

uPG&E did not pay any taxes between 2008 and 2010 despite scoring $4.1 billion in profits. During that same time they received $1 billion in tax rebates. It was all thanks to a $79 million lobbying effort of politicians by the firm that last summer spent $10 million on a "we lost our way" advertising campaign to improve their public image.

He trudged out of the water, his shirt soaked and pulled tight around his skin, glasses and hat hanging from head. He towed a pathetic pink raft behind him, completing the look of a man who had been beaten and embarrassed by the elements.
