Henry Mayo’s services must be expanded

Mary Ann and I have lived in this valley for more than 40 years and in the last 10 years have relied heavily on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for our health services. It is not an overstatement that our hospital saved my life at least once and arguably twice.

November 28, 2008 | By Steve and Mary Ann Colf Newhall | Letters to the Editor


Hospital expansion must fit Valencia dream

The issue of the expansion of the Henry Mayo (Newhall Memorial) Hospital campus and its "master plan" will soon be presented for City Council approval. There are serious questions as to the impartiality of certain council members with regard to this action. I have always believed in the integrity of the individuals that are elected to represent the best interests of their constituents, but I recognize that often misinformation, misrepresentation and misguided values can also blind common sense.

Tired of the GOP Party

Reading Steve Lunetta's Uncle Earl column ("Uncle Earl's view on the election," Nov. 20) summed up what is wrong with the Republican Party: a loss of ideals, finger-pointing, idle gossip, fear-mongering and a considerable state of denial.

Do the math

What if you walked into a store to purchase something and you saw a sign over the item you want that read, "This item is marked UP 18 percent or 20 percent or 28 percent or more"?

Health insurance is so hard to find

Trying to obtain health insurance for a family is a joke! I recently quit my job with the county to take care of five teenagers and help my husband with his business.

Let’s talk turkeys this holiday season

Now that Proposition 2 has passed and will help lessen the suffering of millions of chickens, pigs and calves, my thoughts are on turkeys.

I'm so glad John Boston's back

The Signal has taken a huge step forward by including the Sunday columns of John Boston. The first column (Nov. 16) had to do with politics (and I am so over politics now, right or left) and I couldn't really enjoy it.

Every day is Veterans Day for me

Veterans Day may already be over, but I think we should remember our veterans every day, not just Nov. 11.

How can Steve Lunetta sleep at night?

There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").

A little respect, please

Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.

During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.
