Health Watch – Moving From Episodic Care To Disease Management Mode

While the Washington politicians may continue to debate the pros and cons of health care reform, those of us in the health care industry cannot afford to adopt a wait and see attitude. We have to move forward in some areas we know need to change regardless of political or legislative decisions.

Rich In Thought - My Bernese, My Life Coach

I'm new to the newsroom and for the last seven-or-so weeks when I'm there, I've followed the Old English Proverb, "Keep your mouth shut, and your ears open." I've been a sponge. Absorbing all around me to learn the journalism business, very careful what I say or do, trying to make a good impression. These mannerisms are difficult for someone who's been known as "outspoken" or "opinionated" (the kinder terms) and for the type of person who, when showing light on a situation, is known to use a heat lamp.

Cop Corner - Vehicle Occupant Safety

Driving a vehicle is a constant responsibility, which rests with not only the driver, but also with any passengers. Driving a car is an activity that takes constant attention to all your surroundings, such as weather, road conditions and other traffic. Believe it or not a passenger sets the attitude of the driver. Of course all the occupants will talk to each other and that includes the driver. Conversation can cause the driver to take their attention off the road and that can lead to a severe accident, an accident that could have been otherwise avoided.

Health Watch – Finding Your Medical Home

Let's face it. The most asked question about the recently passed health care legislation is "who is going to pay for what and how?" Until regulations are completed, none of us can answer that question yet.

However, the question uppermost in my mind is "how will this legislation affect the quality of care a hospital provides?"

Back To School Safety

I always remembered being late on the first day of the new school year.My day would usually start by sleeping through the alarm clock and being awakened by my parents pounding on my door. I would jump out of bed and quickly rummage through my closet for something to wear. If I were lucky I would have enough time to eat a piece of toast, before I was pushed out of the house. I would rush across the street with my backpack in hand, mindless of all the traffic around me, hoping to be in time to catch the ...

What Is A City Manager?

Recent media scrutiny of city managers - or, more specifically, their compensation - has reached a fever pitch in California and across the country. The city management and governmental compensation abuses uncovered last month in the small Los Angeles suburb of Bell are deplorable and warrant a full investigation. Such trespasses are rare in a profession known for transparency and populated by talented and dedicated individuals.

For Your Information - Do Your Retirement Plans Need Retooling?

Where does your retirement plan stand? Although this phase in everyone's life looms in the future, many people fail to set aside the money they will need to fund a healthy and happy retirement.

For Your Information – Home Remodeling Can Make Financial Sense

My wife and I survived two major home remodeling projects and we've got the battle scars to prove it. Like most people feeling cramped for space - thanks to two growing children in our case - we weighed the plusses and minuses of remodeling versus moving to a larger home. Because we live in a great neighborhood with strong local schools, we ultimately decided to stay put and remodel, but everyone's case is different.

Guest Opinion - California Dairies Meet Our Needs


The month of June is set aside as a celebration of all things dairy. In California it also is a celebration of Real California Milk and the hardworking dairy families who bring this nutritious food to the table.

California milk and dairy foods are high-quality, economical food sources that come in an endless array of flavors and formats to satisfy every palate. We want high quality and we want value; we want healthy options and we want to indulge; we want choice and we want to know where our food comes from. Dairy delivers in all of these areas.
