 St. Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City has announced that it will close its nursing home in the next two months.

The decision came last week in a meeting of the Community Hospital Board, which is chaired by Matt Shirtcliff, who also is Baker County district attorney.

“For the board, it had to do with timing and can people’s needs be met,” Shirtcliff said. “We’ve had several people leave in the last month or so and the state is pushing for people to be in a more home-based environment.

For the Baker City Herald

About 20 volunteers braved a chilly wind and gray skies Saturday morning to help plant 22 new trees at Quail Ridge Golf Course.

“No one asked them — they just heard we were planting and showed up,” said Bill Tiedemann, general manager.

He and Jeff Stahman, superintendent of the city-owned course at 2801 Indiana Ave., are thankful for the countless hours logged by volunteers on projects — filling divots, removing weeds, planting flowers and more — throughout the 140-acre, 18-hole course.
