+ A4 May 12, 2011 VALLEY FORUM REGISTER It's far from all bad in Quincy 'V e have cer- tainly had our share of negative headlines and news in the paper the past few weeks. And, while I think we have done a good job of reporting some of the worst things that have happened in our com- munity, I do hope that our readers also saw the many words and photos devoted to good things that are happening in Quincy, especially with our young people. The loud headlines that shout at us about gangs and violence are hard to ignore, but please, let's all remember that for all of the negative things happening in Quincy, there are hundreds of positive things. All we have to do is look around and we'll see them. Just the other day, I' was sitting in a city council meeting and four wonderful young people who are Ramble on Chuck Allen making great positive choices with their lives were honored for being role models for other youths. I was sitting in a school board meeting and about 20 mem- bers of the Quincy High School graduat- ing class of 2011 each told the board about their plans to attend colleges and universities. Everywhere we look we'll see young people conducting them- selves in a manner that would make all of us proud. Do we have some problems here with a few individuals? Yes, we do, but I am hopeful that we will see positive changes here in Quincy as long as we see the majority of youngsters choosing to be good sons and daughters, good students and good citizens. Their positive choices can be made easier if we will provide re- inforcement and encouragement for what they are doing. That can come through newspaper articles and .photos, it can come through awards and presentations, but it can also come through hand- shakes and kind words. If you see a youngster acting in a positive manner, why not say something to him or her? A kind word said in the right manner at the right time can go a long way. Just looking back on my life, some of the things that I appreci- ated the most were not the trophies and medals I received, The things I appreciated the most were words of encouragement or acknowledge- ment that came to me when I wasn't expecting them. While we certainly shouldn't ignore the bad things happening in our community, let's not become so narrow in our scope that we lose sight of the good, because there is much good that happens here in Quincy. l CORRESPONDENCE May is a month for veterans May is an interesting month. At the end Of it, we will celebrate Memorial Day, a day we remember for those who perished in service to this nation. Also on May 21 is Armed Forces Day. This is the day on which we have the welcome opportunity to pay special trib- ute to the men and women of the Armed Forces -- to all the individuals who are or were in the service of our country all over the world. Armed Forces Day won't be a matter of parades and receptions for a good many of them. They will be serv- ing in the line of duty and some of them may give their lives in that day. This day reminds me of the Quincy Valley Veterans Memorial Wall. An ap- preciation and thanks to all along with the educating of community of those who served. This includes all active duty and reserve service. This letter is to jog the memory of those who have not yet signed on for themselves or for family that now is the time to begin. The applications are at the Quincy Valley Chamber of Commerce. They in .truth need to be completed and returned no later than the Fourth of July so the plaques can be engraved in time to be placed on the wall. Placement is done the morning of FCAD weekend. Again, veterans, families, children and friends of our veterans, please help in continuing the expansion and awareness of those who dedicated time and effort for our great community by getting the applications• If you know of a member of our community who has served,please encourage them to participate or help them in this special opportunity. -- Phil Anderson, chair Quincy Valley Veterans Memorial Wall Cornu-Labat on his suspension This ruling by DOH following the hearing that took place on April 1 st and that was intended to accuse me of unpro- fessional conduct for refusing to comply with an unwarranted order is an injustice and an abuse of power steered exclusively towards punishing and intimidating me and consequently in every sense wear ingme down for having denounced serious irregularities and negligence in QVMC for which 1 was unlawfully and in bad faith fired from said facility. I also denounced the same DOH for not having noticed and addressed these irregularities as part of the development of their function as the regulating agency. Added to all this I also denounced DOH for having acted against me in an unprofessional and unethical way and with a marked and consistent bad faith, consequently greatly harming me after having I gone to them to denounce these irregularities the QVMC administration generated and allowed to take place. DOH must be there to heal and help people and under no circumstances be there to harm them and generate fear, as they are doing in cases such as this. Both QVMC and DOH have had the motive and opportunities to act against me and in conjunction they have done so, abusing their power and misusing the law shielding themselves behind what- ever technicality they have been able to distortedly apply against me constituting through these actions the gross conflict of interest DOH faces being to this point my judge, jury and executioner. Being true to my principles and to the education I received from my family and was fortunate to receive from my Alma Mater whose motto is "Certa Bo- num Certamen - Fight the Good Fight", throughout these long and painful 20 months 1 have been fighting against all this; doing it because from the beginning, I have known that what has happened to me and my family is not an isolated case but what usually happens to every good physician and good person who legitimately questions and consequently comes across the interests of the health care system and any other system with large economic interests. -- Gaston Cornu-Labat CALENDAR THURSDAY, MAY 12 Quincy Rotary Club - noon at the Quincy Senior Center, 522 F St. SE.
