During the weeklong Toshiba Classic golf tournament in Newport Beach Sue Rietzel works six- to 10-hour days, which wouldn’t be out of the ordinary if she were a paid staff member, but she’s a volunteer. And the retired Huntington Beach woman’s work starts long before the tournament comes to town. As the person responsible for coordinating a staff of about 1,000 volunteers, Rietzel begins looking for volunteers in September. Even a bout with breast cancer in 2007 didn’t stop her from giving her time and energy to the tournament, which benefits Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian.

Charles Jasmine, 52, was spotted by lifeguards about 25 yards offshore near B Street hanging onto a buoy at about 3:30 p.m. Monday. When they swam out to rescue him, they found he had lost consciousness and pulled him onto the shore, Newport Beach Fire Department officials said.

Among the biggest reasons those living in Newport-Mesa can call themselves fortunate is about to get even bigger. Literally. Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian is about to open its new seven-story Sue and Bill Gross Women's Pavilion, and it's a marvel. Architecturally, it's a first-of-a-kind earthquake-resistant structure. (It's why the building can have so many windows. Compare it with Hoag's other tower or just about any multi-story building around.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Molly Lawson speaks her mind and always has. After successfully raising her daughter as a single mother, the 87-year-old Huntington Beach resident went on to speak up for other single mothers by raising money to help them go to school when she moved to California from New York. Once living in Huntington, she also helped raise money for pediatric cancer and the Huntington Beach Children's Library, as well as other philanthropic efforts. And now she helps spread the word about a facility that's become very near and dear to her heart — Adult Day Services of Orange County in Huntington Beach.

Recent nursing grad and new registered nurse Janay Petruna waited two years to get in the nursing program at Golden West College. She never dreamed of working anywhere other than Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian when she graduated. Her wait is not unique. The nation is experiencing a major nursing shortage, with California ranking at the bottom in the fight for new nurses. "It's embarrassing and … disappointing" that the state is ranked 50th in the number of registered nurses per 100,000 people, said Rick Martin, Hoag's senior vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer.

I was disappointed to see the letters in your mailbag section all held the same opinion - that Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian was wrong to ban abortions at its facility. I hope you will publish other opinions as well about this matter. I, for one, applaud Hoag for its decision. If abortion supporters are worried about where they or their daughters can get their next abortion, they need only look in the yellow pages for any number of providers. I must say that the fact that one writer called abortion “a service” is unconscionable.
