Nice to talk to you on the phone
"How does the Superior Court Judge enforce a Grand Jury Report?"
and gathered from our conversation that it can't be.
And I do indeed see upon the letterhead that starts with words:
"Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara" (that seeks
volunteers for the Civil Grand Jury); not the seal of our County but
"The Great Seal of the State of California".
And appreciated learning that the County does not finance the Superior
Court. And that it comes from the State.
I know it's possible that the rest of what I am about to tell you will sound crazy. So I've been taking notes for the last 3 days trying to find out. That reside upon the upper layer of my desk overflowing with a mass of still unwritten letters yet to be sent.
First, let me explain that I have a paper I was given with a telephone number at the top: 885-5147.
So last Tuesday (3/13/07) I called this number and heard a recording and began taking notes. Reviewing these notes I see I wrote down:
"885-3862 .. IDS Status"
"for one's own records .. 885-3764"
"Attorney's office: mail request to Medical Records Department.."
A fax #.
Upon my Tuesday notes I see a name and a number. He was cheerful and very helpful.
The question someone will have is "how many pages are there?". To know how much it will cost. To know if they are sane. And see: "$5 cover, 25 cents a page"
And " .. 885-6041". And believe it was ... who gave me her name and number. 885-6041 was responsive but didn't seem to know what the forms were or what was on them or how many of them there were.
I see the name ".... ....." and "not there".
I see "Supervisor: 885-5144"
Notes of more phone numbers:
I don't have notes of the conversations of all the numbers I called ending in "voice mail". There was no conversation to note. I tried to call all of the numbers I could (save about two) until I learned that everyone leaves at 4pm. And gave up.
"Becky doesn't know"
Then Arina: really busy and couldn't answer my questions. Something about "patients coming in" .. "this is the ER" .. can't talk to me now.
I believe Arina then transferred me to ... . Whose name I see next in my notes.
He was very helpful but was new and has only been there since last November. And didn't seem to know much about Michael Meade or how long he's been there. In fact, I don't think he's ever talked to Michael at all. Anyway ... tried to guess as best he could what the forms were and what might be on them and gave me ..... .......'s number: 885-6048 which I called and got voice mail.
I called ... back (as I recall from my notes) and asked him to transfer me to Michael Meade's office. Where I got Susan who transferred me back to Becky who was "too busy" and transferred me to "Lisette" (spelling?). I asked Lisette for the names of all the forms and what was on them. For which I gather there is only one form that says what it's name is upon it:
So I asked for her last name and what department she was in.
I gather the department is called "really busy"
and her last name is "don't have time". Or maybe it was "could you
I tried to inquire further but heard nothing more and waited and waited.
And then heard a ringing that was answered by voice mail:
"Nurse Supervisor's Office" and learned of a telephone number for the
"Nurse Pager" 308-8307 which I called and got more voice mail.
