Supervisor Knabe issues proclamation commemorating Islander's 100th anniversary Supervisors join celebation of Islander's milestone BY JIM WATSON The Catalina Island newspa- per was recently the recipient of a new proclamation from the office of Supervisor Don Knabe. The proclamation was issued in observance of the newspaper's 100th anniversary, which it is celebrating this year. With gilded lettering and stamped with the official seal of the County of Los Angeles, the proclamation starts with "The Caialina Islander, 100th Birthday, 1914-2014." Continuing below that, the document reads, "With sincere congratulations and best wishes, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Los Angeles does hereby join in your celebration" The proclamation is signed by Don Knabe, who oversees the County's Fourth District. The district includes Catalina Island. Since its founding in the late 1800s, the town of Avalon has seen the rise of numerous small publications, ranging from the Catalina Wireless to the Catalina Jew fish and many others.

Rural communities are wonder- ful places to live and work, which is why nearly 62 million people-- nearly "one in five" Americans-- call them "home." Small towns, farming communities and remote areas (like Catalina Island ) are places where neighbors know each other, listen to each other, respect each other and work together for the benefit of the community. Rural settings also have unique healthcare needs. Today more than ever, rural communities must address accessibility issues, a lack of healthcare providers, the needs of an aging population suffering from a greater number of chronic conditions, and larger percentages Of un-insured and medically under served citizens. And rural hos- pitals, often the economic foun- dation of their communities and primary providers of healthcare struggle financially as declining reimbursement rates and dispro- portionate funding levels make it challenging to provide valuable programs and new equipment serve their residents. That is why the 'National Organiz iti0n of State RuralI Offices has set aside Nov. 20 to celebrate National Rural Health Day.
