One woman's crusade against a healthcare district

By Bakosphere

Many people with serious concerns with government or business may vent for a short time, then move on.

Not Laura Hart.

Hart is the author of the KVHD Under Fire blog, whose sole focus is to put a spotlight on activities at the Kern Valley Hospital District. Her blog description captures that focus: 

"Attorney general Jerry Brown opens can of worms! Bogus indictments of doctor and pharmacist. Bad investigation. Crimes of certain board members gone unchecked. The public healthcare district that tried to hide its treachery. Not anymore.

Hart is persistent in chronicling the ordeal of former CEO Pamela Ott, who faces a variety of elder-abuse charges. She has logged more than 100 posts over the past year, on topics ranging from board meeting coverage (including video segments) and posting of hospital documents and reviews of local-media coverage of hospital issues. 

It's not reading for the faint of heart, but it's an example of dogged coverage on a vary narrow topic.
