Letters to editor: Hospital staff thanked for exemplary service

Hospital staff thanked for exemplary service

Big thanks to Desert View Hospital – five stars!

Thanks to Dr. Hirsh, Dr. Hockenberry, ER Dr. Anderson and the whole staff at this hospital.

All the doctors are knowledgeable and can think out of the box. They all went over and above to help my husband Wayne. They all work long hours and are dedicated to helping their patients.

The staff, from the cleaning lady, to blood, respiration, RN, CNA, and a special thanks to Gia. Wow, could she stick a needle! All were so sweet and kind to my husband and I thank them all for their wonderful service.

Dr. Hirsh called our lung doctor and told him the extra test he wanted done and all the things he needed to do, and set up an appointment ASAP. The records department got me the ER record in four hours. The nice girl at the front desk helped me. To Barbara from records – a big thanks. We are so lucky to have them all.

My husband was in the hospital for seven days. If he had seen a doctor instead of a P.A. for four years in Vegas, we could have solved some of the problems ahead of time. We all know we need more equipment in Pahrump so we don’t have to go to Vegas 60 miles away.

Thanks to everybody, God bless.

P.S. They also have a pastor that sounds and looks like Morgan Freeman. He is a plus – tall and a voice from heaven.

Wayne and Arlene Capasso

DAN SCHINHOFEN: Let’s talk about the peaceful transition of power

For nearly 250 years the United States of America has had a peaceful transition of power in our government. Of course after Lincoln was elected the Democrats seceded from the Union, but other than that, when one party lost power in the House or Senate or the executive, the position of president or speaker of the house has been handed over without bloodshed or rancor.

TIM BURKE: My favorite season is fall, but not this year

The change from the summer to the fall season is always one of my favorite times of the year. In a normal, non-COVID-19 world, children would head off to school, our youth would be participating in fall sports, and many local events would be held for our community to attend.

The coronavirus debate is about much more than masks.

DEBRA J. SAUNDERS: Mike Pence’s calm conservatism

With his no-drama demeanor during the vice presidential debate Wednesday, Pence showed America how Trump would look if he acted like a politician: like a president.

Is this ‘cartoon existence’ really living?

As I was binge watching the last season of “The Blacklist”, I was surprised it only had 19 episodes. What was stranger was a few minutes into the 19th episode they cut in with cast and crew telling us that they were in the middle of filming when COVID-19 restrictions kicked in. After making sure to tell us to be safe and other platitudes, they then went back to the show, but half of it was cartoon and the other half live action.
