Remembering Dr. Jack Scott

My husband, Jack D. Scott, M.D., was a practicing pediatrician who took a year off for post doctoral work at Stanford University. When he returned to Fresno, he was the first in the nation to create a neonatal unit separate from a medical school. He developed Valley Children’s neonatal intensive care unit and set the pattern of excellence that continues.

My plan to end homelessness

Do we want and accept a permanent underclass? If this is the case, then no amount of tax dollars will fix the problem. Therefore, we must decide that a permanent underclass is unacceptable. That requires developing and implementing a plan for full employment.

It’s about all of us

Stop the polarizing thinking that separates “us” from “them.” It is all of us. We are in this together. Let us all reach out to one another in a manner of peaceful caring, with a willingness to solve problems, not in a rage of destruction.

Blessed to be Americans

We must believe that all lives count; this applies regardless of race, religion, clothing and skin color. All men count, all women count, all children count, all babies count, born and unborn.
