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.
