A woman called this week after following a debate about the rising costs of health care on an open line radio show.

“If you go to a doctor, they seem to only want to handle one problem at a time. If you have more than one health issue, they insist you make another appointment,” she said.

“I went to a doctor about pain I was having in one of my heels. I mentioned that the other heel was giving me some trouble too and the doctor told me to make another appointment for that heel.

“That’s not the way it used to be,” she said.

“Someone in authority should be looking into this. I’m not sure the government knows the way things go on here.”


A reader says he’s amazed at the coverage CBC News is giving to — on a “provincial” newcast — the St. John’s IceCaps during their run to win the Calder Cup in the American Hockey League.

“They are camped out at Mile One Stadium covering everything that moves ... and some things that don’t.

“There may be some fans in the rest of the province who give a flying fig about the IceCaps ... but I suspect they are few and far between. After all, they chose to call them the “St. John’s” IceCaps ... ignoring potential fans in the rest of the province,” he said.

“Personally, I can’t bring myself to cheer for any team from the capital with the name “Caps” in it.

“Rivalries linger for some of us old senior hockey fans.”


A Corner Brook driver says he’s appreciative of the patching work and resurfacing that has been done on streets all over the city.

He says he’s also happy that the work was done before the middle of the summer like usually happens.

“One thing I would add though for those in charge at city hall, please get some lines painted on city streets.

“I’ve lived here most of my life and I can’t figure out where I should be driving at some intersections around town,” he said.
