Three Followups: Brius/Redwood Healthcare, Palo Alto and Tragedy at the Grocery Outlet

 I ran into an employee  of one of the facilities involved in DA Gallegos’ lawsuit against Skilled Healthcare as described in this blog a couple of days ago.  That person informed me that the employees at those facilities are still very concerned about understaffing. Sure enough , the morning’s Times-Standard confirmed that the situation is so bad the facilities are not taking new patients. A very bad situation.

On a happier note,  the good people of Palo Alto may be returniing to their liberal traditions.  Two Santa Clara County supervisors, Joe Simitian and Dave Cortese, are proposing a measure to buy the mobile home park, Palo Alto’s only low or moderately priced housing, so that the 400 residents won’t have to move.  Good for them, and we hope they succeed.

Finally, I should have known better but I had my heart broken again when the Grocery Outlet stopped carrying those wonderful little avocados they were selling for two bucks a bag. They were just right for a single serving or any time you didn’t need beautiful uniform slices. O you Grocery Outlet~  you get us hooked, then you pull back! That’s the way it goes at an outlet store. Hope you bring  those little avos back real soon.

Have a great weekend. Eat lots of oysters!
