Never mind the mollusks—here’s the Park Service! When a high-ranking elected ofﬁcial has the moral courage to stand up and voice their opinion on any important issue in today’s fractious and partisan landscape, let me be the ﬁrst to congratulate them. That’s why I am bringing your attention to none other than our illustrious Sen. Dianne Feinstein. So what, you ask yourself, has me singing her praises? Is it her stand on the recent debate to raise the debt ceiling? Or maybe changes to our national healthcare? How about the interminable partisan bickering in our gridlocked Congress? Perhaps the two wars we are ﬁghting in Afghanistan and Iraq? No, no. While I am sure she has some private thoughts on all of these issues (and I will vigorously defend her right to keep them to herself), I’m talking about an even bigger threat to our way of life. Need a hint? This is about an enemy hiding in plain sight. One that often carries guns, lurks endlessly in the bushes, and is not even on the Homeland Security watch list. Give up? Hah! It’s our very

own National Park Service! You know, those people that care more about bears and wolves than they do about lowering taxes on the wealthy. To her credit, Sen. Feinstein has uncovered a plot by the Point Reyes National Park Service to allow a perfectly successful commercial non-native oyster operation in Drakes Estero (a nationally exploitable public treasure) to become the exclusive playground (substitute entitlement) for thousands of marine mammals, migratory waterfowl and stringy eelgrass (whatever that is). Is this what Congress intended back in the ’60s when they decided to confer full wilderness status to this estero in 2012? I for one doubt it. How can we trust any decisions made in the ’60s anyway? Wasn’t that when we got the Endangered Species and Clean Air acts? How the senator found time to digest and denounce the Park Service’s 430 page Draft Environmental Impact Statement in less time than it takes for the ink to dry, speaks volumes itself on her commitment to expose this wasteful extravagance and save us the time of reading it ourselves. I say, why let facts confuse the issue when, after all, we have a political scientist on our side. Admit it, don’t we have enough wildernesses already? Between the Matterhorn at Disneyland and all the endless corn mazes sprouting up each Halloween, what’s the point of adding more? I haven’t even had time to go visit the Grand Canyon in a helicopter! I’m with the senator on this one. Let her know you want to help get the “wild” out of wilderness now and give our “non-native” species the chance

Out of sight, out of our minds The biggest post-9/11 “blindspot” everyone seems to ignore, including your paper [“Don’t Look Now,” Sept. 9], is the number of innocent men, women and children killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Iraq a minimum of 107,000-110,000 civilians have been killed. In Afghanistan a minimum of 20,000-40,000 innocent civilians have been killed. Several estimates are much higher. It seems that we don’t care about anyone being killed unless there are Americans. Unfortunately, most of these people were nice who had families and all wanted the same things that we want. And our country went crazy and decided to invade their countries and caused their deaths. James Whittlesey, Fairfax
What a long, strange tryptophan.... Thanks to Amy Alkon for her well-cited advice to Medicated [Advice Goddess, Oct. 28] in the Paciﬁc Sun, regarding the beneﬁts and disadvantages of using the birth-control pill to control severe mood swings. Here is another non-drug alternative for balancing mood swings caused by serotonin deﬁciency, which you may like to share with your readers. L-tryptophan is an amino acid that is required for adequate production of serotonin. Use of this supplement is safer and often more effective than SSRIs in raising serotonin, with none of the common and serious side effects of the pharmaceutical antidepressants. Made from the griffonia bean, 5-HTP can also be utilized for more immediate effect across the blood-brain barrier. A good holistic nutrition professional can help identify which nutrient is right for whom, how much and when to take it, as well as advising a person about diet and lifestyle practices which support proper mood balance. An appropriate course of 5-HTP or L-tryptophan along with supportive diet can raise serotonin levels in a sustainable way, such that the remedy need not be a lifetime sentence of drug use or slavery to manic mood swings. By utilizing these supplements for a few short months, many woman recover from insomnia, experience ease of or complete relief from raging, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, impaired or sluggish digestion and/or cravings for sugar, chocolate and caffeine. In my practice I see men and women become free of addiction to foods and drugs including prescription SSRIs and benzodiazepines through supplementation with neuronutrients such as L-tryptophan and 5-HTP, and dietary modiﬁcation. These are potent alternatives worth investigating. For fur-

We wonder what the NY Daily News’s caption for this would’ve been...
I’m writing regarding the headline kerfufﬂe created by letter-writer Karla J [“Tin Pun Alley,” Sept. 23]. I am reminded of the story—fact or ﬁction?—of the New York Daily News headline for a story about an inmate who escaped from a mental institution and, while free, had sexual intercourse with another person. The Daily News headline: Nut Bolts, Screws! Please do not use my name, especially if you don’t ﬁnd the above item entertaining. Thank you. (I enjoy your headlines.) B.D., Marin
Defense rests, doctor retires... The following letter is a press release that was submitted to us from the attorneys of Dr. Horace Newhard, the longtime Novato doc whose career came to a close last month after he surrendered his medical license to settle a state medical board case stemming from criminal accusations of a sexual nature made by a female patient [“Novato Doctor Hands in His Stethoscope,” Nov. 4]. Here’s the press release in its entirety: We are pleased with, and agree with, the DA’s decision to dismiss all remaining charges against Dr. Newhard. The court dismissed one charge, a second, the most signiﬁcant charge, resulted in a ﬁnding of not guilty at trial, and the remaining two charges resulted in a hung jury, nine to three in favor of Dr. Newhard. On interviewing the jurors, they said they did not feel the complaining witness was persuasive but the three who did not vote for acquittal had difﬁculty with an evidentiary issue relating to Dr. Newhard’s not remembering the speciﬁcs of the examination in question, his having conducted hundreds of such examinations in the year before he was made aware of the issue. The DA has obviously recognized the futility of pursuing the remaining charges further and defense counsel shares this view. It is indeed a sadness that a 62-year-old patient saw ﬁt to make a claim of impro-

Your soapbox is waiting at â€şâ€ş paciďŹ csun.com priety with respect to this single medical examination that was identical to any number of such examinations she had by Dr. Newhard over the 30 years she had been his patient. Dr. Newhard categorically denies any wrongdoing of any kind in the matter. Two eminent physicians, both professors at UCSF School of Medicine, one a past president of the San Francisco Medical Society, testiďŹ ed at the trial that the medicine practiced by Dr. Newhard, the examination he performed, was in all respects appropriate and, indeed, required by the medical standard of care given the patientâ€™s presentation. The patient also contended that Dr. Newhard was inappropriate in hugging and kissing her though he was in the habit of hugging and kissing patients at the time, particularly those of long duration. His patients welcomed this kind of affection from their family physician and the doctor had over two hundred patients come forward with letters of support in the course of the case saying how much they appreciated his services for themselves and their families over the years. In addition, he has received awards from patients and colleagues alike for outstanding medical service as a family practitioner. Times have now changed, however, and it is no longer acceptable for doctors to hug and kiss patients, and Dr. Newhard of course accepted this change during his last years of practice at Prima Medical Group. Dr. Newhard is now 81 years old and has been understandably exhausted by the process of defending against these charges while continuing his active practice to serve his patients, many of whom are elderly, over the last three years. This, coupled with health issues, have prompted him to now retire from the practice of medicine. The Medical Board of California ďŹ led an accusation against Dr. Newhard arising out of the criminal charges but, signiďŹ cantly, the Board did not see ďŹ t to allege any sexual wrongdoing, though it did allege that he hugged and kissed the patient. When he retired Dr. Newhard surrendered his medical license and this rendered the Medical Board Accusation moot. Dr. Newhard wishes to publicly thank all of the patients and other well-wishers who have expressed their support during
these difďŹ cult times. It has been hard for him and his family to endure the wrongful accusations, and the loyalty of friends has been most welcome. Dr. Newhard is grateful for the 55-year career he has enjoyed serving the Marin community and deeply appreciates the thousands of patients and their families who have entrusted him with their medical care.
