June 15, 2010 — The local elections incorporated in the California State Primary on Tuesday, June 8 are over and except for the Board of Supervisors certifying the ballots, the people of Susanville and Lassen County have chosen some new leaders to take us into to the second decade of the 21st Century.
June 8, 2010 — It may seem like a simple thing and not the most glamorous way to recognize someone’s service to the community, but we agree with the Susanville City Council’s unanimous decision to rename Hospital Lane to Korver Lane.
Dr. Kenneth Korver is a name people quickly learn when they move to Susanville and if they read any health news in the Lassen County Times or the Westwood Pine Press. He is our Public Health Medical Director. Therefore, anything of concern facing the community such as E.coli breakouts, the H1N1 Flu scare, or other possible pandemics it is and has been Korver’s advice the emergency agencies, doctors, hospital, City Council and Board of Supervisors follow.
