"Expanded Snowmobile Use in Yellowstone Halted" (Dec. 17) was the best Christmas present I could have received. I have worked with the Greater Yellowstone Coalition for years to phase out snowmobiles in the confines of the park. When President Clinton supported a policy to phase out the machines, we celebrated the protection of the park and its inhabitants. When President Bush ignored the public's demand for park protection and made the decision to allow snowmobiles back into the park in even larger numbers than before, many of us promised to work even harder to protect the park and its wildlife.

The trial for the man charged with killing eight people in a Seal Beach salon will split into two separate phases, with two different sets of jurors asked to decide the ultimate fate of the accused mass murderer, a judge ruled Monday. The first phase, the actual trial, would begin in June. If convicted, Scott Dekraai faces the death penalty for allegedly walking into Salon Meritage in October 2011 and opening fire, killing his ex-wife and seven others in the county's deadliest shooting.

Incredible! What happened to medical ethics and the Hippocratic Oath that we have doctors who handpick their patients with health problems that don't make them feel uncomfortable or embarrassed? It seems to me that if they feel squeamish about any phase of handling seriously ill patients, they don't belong in the profession. ELEANOR BRALVER Sylmar

Thank you for your coverage of the Greenock groin and Surfrider Foundation's concerns about Ventura's plan to build a 100-foot addition onto the existing structure. We'd like to point out that Surfrider Foundation, Ventura County chapter, has never categorically opposed the project. There are two phases to the project, and we strongly support Phase 1, which is the reconstruction and reinforcement of the existing groin. By doing so, we believe that beach erosion could be halted, homes in the area could be protected and currents at Marina Park would be reduced.

Ijust bought a new cookbook. It has beautiful pictures in it of tempting food. Someday, I hope to be eating food that looks just like the food in these pictures. But it won't be tonight, because right next to the new cookbook in the grocery cart I am pushing around this cavernous warehouse store are complete-in-this-package frozen fajitas, which we are having for dinner.

Leonard S. (Sam) Shoen, 70, founder of the U-Haul rental system and the man generally credited with creating the do-it-yourself moving industry, announced that he will retire from the company he launched more than 40 years ago. "We all reach the point where one phase of your life is complete and you need to go on with the next phase," Shoen said. "I am now going on with the rest of my life."

After three years of listening to county Library Service Agency's hierarchy and concerned citizen groups whine that the lack of money was causing libraries to cut hours of operation, we learn that not only can hours now be extended but the three threatened small branches can remain open by simply getting staff off their butts and out into the field. While this may not prove a complete dereliction of duty on the part of LSA leadership, it most certainly suggests the presence of incapable derelicts on duty.

Who is this marvelous Helena Ragan published in Speaking Out (July 26) "Memories of Family's Little House on the Hill." It is the sweetest, most interesting, poignant and beautifully written account of a phase of her life. It will haunt me for as long as I live. Weren't her children lucky to have her for a mother!
