Taxpayer 1 year, 11 months ago on Leona Hemmerich: The rule of nepotism

Commissioners need to be transparent with taxpayer funds and should always refrain from voting on anything that would darken the perception of their integrity.This would include council members who sit on way too many boards and then do not abstain from discussion and votes. Thanks for being specific and reminding the community of the importance of more transparency and a lot less of nepotism.

Taxpayer 1 year, 11 months ago on Rose White: Change needed at TMH

After reading this letter in its entirety, I am so surprised that I am the first person to make a comment. What is the problem with those recliners? Why has the hospital not replaced or exchanged those recliners? Who is responsible for making sure those recliners are safe for patients and visitors? Has this been reported to the Hospital Board? Are there wiring problems, switches not wired correctly? This is a 105 Million Dollar Hospital, over the life of the loan, -- and who is responsible for making sure our Hospital is safe to be operating. What else is wrong at the hospital kept from the community? And where are our County Commissioners, who are suppose ot oversee this Hospital and what is the Hospital Board doing to make sure things are properly run?

Taxpayer 1 year, 12 months ago on Al Cashion: This is OUR Hospital

It appears Al Cashion was correct that we would all be surprised at what is going on at OUR hospital. Several letters to the editor have validated Al Cashion article. Al Cashion dodged that pie thrown at him too! ;-)

Taxpayer 1 year, 12 months ago on Commissioners remove 2 from MCTA board

Just think of the numbers that would have been at the meeting if it was at night --- could have probably used the Fairgrounds, so we could easily muck it out later from all the BS from a couple of County Commissioners -- I would hope that the new Commissioners rethink what was done, and overturn it. Also, we should all review the dishonesty, lack of integrity, and failure to perform their elected employee status in a satisfactory manner and decide what actions must be taken. As their Bosses, appears we need to give them a review of their performance. WE also need to raise our level of expectations, and stop using the phrase “it’s only Moffat County, you can’t expect too much”. What a sham!

This appears to be an inside job, and someone will know who did this and they need to get that information to the Craig Police Department.

Taxpayer 2 years, 2 months ago on Moffat County health care officials repond to questions about physician retention

I have and will continue to attend a lot of meetings for Council, BOCC, and numerous boards -- but what offends me the most is the lack of dialogue or discussion on topics prior to decisions being made. It appears that "we" like to chat rather than have open discussions or perhaps "we" would rather complain after the fact rather than working to be being part of the solution. But being part of the process takes time, and also bringing up or exposing any type of a problem can make "we" the easy target. Just a pondering of life in Craig America and Moffat County.

Taxpayer 2 years, 3 months ago on Moffat County health care officials repond to questions about physician retention

So Mr. Truthful -- what part isn't truthful - womb to tomb employment, or changing employment? Or seeing problems and be willing to be part of the solution by starting a dialogue to make change? Or seeing a waste of money to make a legacy for a few?

I am confident that people asking questions of various boards, City Council, and BOCC help keep decisions a lot more transparent, and hopefully above board. Or perhaps, it might be a good dose of fear that keeps some of these folks honest. I believe that people leave Craig for other employment for a lot of reasons, and will continue to do so in the future. In a community where employment is womb to tomb in some of our higher paying industries, people changing employment after a few years is new to us and will probably be the wave of the future. It is when your Doctor leaves Craig and you must build trust with a new Doctor, and that trust building takes quite a while. Thanks Al Cashion.
