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.

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."

Can’t defend Obama on Bergdahl

Not even I can defend this one. Since Barack Obama was elected President, he has misstepped many times. I have defended most of those because every step he takes a step he does so with an anchor in the form of the Republican Party pulling him back. The Republicans have attempted to marginalize him since before he took office.
