01/05/2019 - Demo on Creating Living Art in Bonsai
San Andreas, CA...Vince Owyoung has been growing, designing and styling bonsai trees for more than 50 years. Over that time, he has developed his own creative skills and talents in transforming simple plants into works of living art. In addition to leading workshops at various area clubs and at California Shohin Society seminars, he is also a member of four Northern California bonsai clubs.


Mother Lode Bonsai Club’s free public presentation will be conducted by Owyoung on Saturday, January 5 at the San Andreas Central Library, 1299 Gold Hunter Road (off Mountain Ranch Road) in San Andreas. His demonstration that immediately follows the 9:00 a.m. monthly meeting will be on a Juniper prostrata, which will be raffled afterwards.

In addition, club mentors will hold a hands-on workshop. There is no charge but participants must provide their own soil, pots, tools and a table covering. It is an opportunity for assistance with repotting and developing bonsai trees.

Regardless of levels of experience, all are invited to learn more about this popular hobby. Mother Lode Bonsai Club members come from Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties, as well as the central valley. For more information, contact Richard McKinstry at  (209) 288-2330 or go online to www.motherlodebonsai.org.

10/21/2018 - Before I Die Forum is Sunday, October 21st from 1 - 5pm in San Andreas
San Andreas, CA...“Our culture simply does not know what to think about death,” says noted author on death and dying issues, Rob Moll. “Through medicine and science, we know more about death and how to forestall it than ever before. Yet, we know very little about caring for a dying person. We don’t know what to expect or how to prepare for our own death. And we’re often awkward at best when trying to comfort a friend in grief.”



In the photo, the giant chalk board is Candy Chang’s idea. The “Before I Die” caption invites the participant to write a response. Pictured left to right are: Sarah Lunsford, Glenn Moore, Tammy Beilstein, Krista Sutton, and Tim Johnson.

The San Andreas Memorial Chapel is offering a ground-breaking, upbeat, free-to-the-public forum on death and dying. The goal is to ease the “stigma” of a very real event that will one day happen to everyone. An afternoon of art, music, food, and presentations are being planned.

Presentations include legal matters with attorney Steven Airola and arrangement options with long time industry professional, Glenn Moore. Fire Chaplain Dick Brown and Hospice Chaplains George Stathos and Hilde Brooks, along with several others will be present to help address spiritual concerns. Members from local hospice agencies will be on a panel to discuss caring for a dying loved one.

Krista Sutton of San Andreas Memorial Chapel will host an open house to a beautiful display of jewelry, urns, and caskets. The prep room/autopsy room will also be open for guests to see and ask questions. In addition, there will be up to a dozen booths outside reflecting art, music, and delicious treats!

At dusk, an optional walking or driving historical tour of People’s Cemetery will be led by event coordinator Tim Johnson and Cemetery Manager, Tom Duckett.

The “Before I Die” movement began shortly after a “TED talk” was given by national speaker, Candy Chang in 2012. Ms. Chang is an artist who creates art that prompts people to think about their secrets, wishes and hopes – and then share them. Before I Die “Festivals” originated in the United Kingdom in 2013. The first Before I Die Festival in the United States was held in Louisville, Kentucky in 2016.

11/01/2018 - Prevent Flu this Season by Getting a Flu Shot
San Andreas, CA...Dean Kelaita, Health Officer, is urging Calaveras County residents to get vaccinated against influenza (the flu) this season as soon as possible. In California, flu usually begins to increase in late November or December. It takes a couple of weeks after vaccination for the body to respond fully, so now is the time to get vaccinated to have the best protection as the flu season begins. “Deaths related to flu are tragic reminders that the flu virus needs to be taken very seriously,” said Dr. Kelaita. “A yearly flu shot is the best way to protect against infection and prevent others from coming down with the flu.” A person with flu may be contagious and infect others before they even feel sick. This season your health care provider may be offering several different kinds of injectable influenza vaccines, such as the regular version or high dose version for those over 65. Calaveras County Public Health expects there to be enough injectable vaccine to meet the expected demand. Each year, flu causes millions of illnesses, hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and, sometimes, tens of thousands of deaths in the United States.


To reduce this threat, an annual flu shot is recommended for everyone six months of age and older, including pregnant women. Flu shots are needed every year to maintain the greatest protection, because the vaccine changes each season to match the viruses that are circulating.

Common symptoms of the flu include fever or feeling feverish, a cough and/or sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, chills, fatigue and body aches. Children may also have nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. To stop the spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses, you should also:  Stay home when you are sick and limit your contact with others  Cover your coughs or sneezes with your sleeve or a disposable tissue  Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer  Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth Calaveras County residents are urged to contact their health care provider, physician’s office, clinic or pharmacy about obtaining the flu vaccine.

Flu vaccine is available at Calaveras County Public Health on Mondays 3pm-4:30pm. There will be drive-thru flu vaccine clinic on Nov. 1, 2018, 11am – 2pm. For more information call (209)754-6460.

About the District
Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD)
Healthcare Districts are public entities that provide community-based health care services to residents throughout the state.

They respond to the needs in their District by providing a range of services, which may include a hospital, clinic, skilled nursing facility or emergency medical services; as well as education and wellness programs.

Each of California’s Healthcare Districts is governed by a locally elected Board of Trustees who are directly accountable to the communities they serve.

History of Mark Twain Health Care District
The Mark Twain Hospital District, a public agency, was formed by a vote of the people of Calaveras County in a special election held August 27th, 1946.

The vote of the people was 1,702 in favor of formation and 111 voting against its formation.

The political boundaries of the Mark Twain Hospital District comprised the entire County of Calaveras.

Hospital Districts were a product of the Health and Safety Code 32000, the “Local Hospital District Law.”

In 1994 the State Legislature broadened the scope of activity of a Hospital District and renamed the statute to its current reference, Health Care District Law.

The focus of today’s health care district is to provide direct support and education for the health care needs of the communities served by the district.

The Mark Twain Health Care District, as a public agency, is subject to the Brown Act and the Public Records Act.

In August 1951 The Mark Twain District hospital located in San Andreas was dedicated.

Mark Twain Medical Center
Discussions with the St Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton began in February 1986.

An Affiliation Study Summary was developed in August 1986.

The Sierra St. Joseph’s HealthCare Corporation Board of Trustees was formed and the first meeting was on March 11, 1987.

The above name was changed to Mark Twain St. Joseph’s HealthCare Corporation and the first Articles of Incorporation were filed on March 18, 1987.

The Mark Twain Health Care District leases the land and buildings to the Mark Twin St. Joseph’s HealthCare Corporation. This lease was effective January 1, 1990.

The Mark Twain St. Joseph’s HealthCare Corporation entered into a Management Agreement with Catholic Healthcare West effective September 20, 2001.

Catholic Healthcare West changed its corporate name to Dignity Health in 2012. This management agreement expires December 31, 2019.

Mark Twain St Joseph’s Hospital Corporation changed its name to Mark Twain Medical Center in January 2013.
