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

I'd like to thank the Manteca Bulletin for highlighting our Employee Banquet in Monday's paper. I'm sure our employees appreciated the recognition. I'd also like to respond to Tuesday's opinion column criticizing our decision to hold a banquet in these tough economic times.

Coming home to a place I had never been before

I had bonked the previous day on Sonora Pass on a 90-degree day. It was the sixth day of a fully loaded touring bicycling trip with two teen boys. I was carrying 80 pounds of gear and supplies on my touring bicycle. They were on racing bicycles with just handlebar bags. The object was to crisscross seven major Sierra passes in seven days. The previous day we had crested Tioga Pass and were headed to Topaz Lake via Sonora Pass before tackling Monitor Pass and heading home to Lincoln.
