Appreciates PVH emergency room staff
EDITOR: I want to thank the Petaluma Valley Hospital emergency room staff for going above and beyond for my mother recently. I was not able to make it to the emergency room after the dreaded call we all don't want to hear. The staff was so understanding and compassionate, and put me on a speaker phone so I could talk with my mother in her last moments.
The nurses held her hand lovingly, as if she was one of their own. The chaplain even stayed with her until my brother could arrive.
All the folks I have talked to since said they have never heard of such heroics from a hospital staff. These doctors, nurses and chaplain deserve a round of applause.
I want to formally thank this great team of professionals.

Celebrating the spirit of Petaluma
EDITOR: If I ask you to name an event in Petaluma that best celebrates our great community, you may come up with the Butter and Egg Days parade, the first pitch of the season at one of our three little league fields, the East Side Band Concert, the Petaluma People's Choice Awards or a few dozen more events that happen every spring.
Although I love each and every one of these annual events and I'm sure most of you have participated in at least one, I feel that the Petaluma Community Awards of Excellence event, to be held March 27, really is the best way this community celebrates itself.
