Letters to the Editor for May 16, 2012


Let’s celebrate real food May 19

To the editor:

Best selling author Michael Pollan writes: “We need to stop flattering nutritionally worthless foodlike substances by calling them “junk food” and instead make clear that such products are not in fact food of any kind.”   

Join us at a celebration of real food:  Food Revolution Day on May 19.  This event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Baker High School Commons. Come and see the biggest display of produce in the Northwest!  There will be raffles, giveaways, samples, cooking and gardening instruction and much more. Most importantly, there will be real food!

No luck with Airlink refund

To the editor:

Regarding the May 11 article regarding AirLink Service:

I went personally to Baker Fire Dept. to inquire about the May 31 deadline coverage from AirLink (in Bend) which I have belonged to. Baker Fire Dept is changing to LifeFlight, so in order to have identical coverage, I’ll need to join that network.

 I paid by check Oct. 20, 2011, to AirLink, $108 for ground /air coverage for a year. Now I’m told they will no longer cover after May 31. 

My membership card has toll free number, which I used, anticipating a 6-month refund. I was told by the woman on the line, “it is non-refundable.”

So now, in order to be covered through Baker City Fire Med Plus, I’ll be required to pay another $110 (with no refund from AirLink to help with expense). Good luck to anyone else who approaches AirLink in Bend for a refund. I was unsuccessful. Phone information is on page 6A, Baker City Herald, May 11 issue. Or write to AirLink: Attention: Audra, 2500 NE Neff Road, Bend OR 97701 and airlink@stcharleshealthcare.
