dkwaldo 4 years ago on Church of Destiny to give away van on Mother’s Day

"giving away a 1993 Mercury Villager minivan to a deserving family."

"The winner must be present in order to win, Terry said."

Guess they're not deserving if they don't attend your service?


dkwaldo 5 years, 5 months ago on VFW: Veterans Park not up for sale to City of Craig

There's always two sides to every story. If the council offered more than the appraised value, they would be accused of irresponsible spending. I wonder what the VFW was expecting in an offer. Maybe they should get more than one appraisal.

I spent a lot of time at the park growing up. It seems like it should be worth more than 25k; however, the council has a fiduciary responsibility to spend money wisely. It seems their hands are tied with an appraisal of 25k in hand.


dkwaldo 8 years, 4 months ago on Matthew R. Cassidy: TMH staff are rude

I lived in Craig from 1977 to 1984. It seems that nothing has changed at TMH. ED staff were rude, insensitive, and impatient then (personal experience). I have no doubt that the staff has changed many times over the years since then. This must be an acceptable culture at TMH.

I have been a career firefighter near Seattle for 17 years now. The vast majority of our responses are for Emergency Medical care. Being rude and insensitive to patients is never acceptable behavior. It doesn't matter how trivial their "emergency" may be, or how many runs you've been on that shift, patients are to be treated with dignity and respect, PERIOD! No excuses!

The medical community has a culture of arrogance. They are treated that way during their training as doctors and nurses, so they think it's okay to treat others that way. Customer service in the medical field should be approached the same way as any other business. Poor service results in a poor reputation. People will let their feet do the talking. We preferred driving to Steamboat as I'm sure others do now.
