I have not attended any of your public meetings in regards to the plans for the hospital. However, I heard on the radio yesterday that you plan to have 25 patient rooms with only a handfull to be used as private rooms. I think you should look into doing as Steamboat has done and another hospital I had to use recently will be doing and that is to make the majority of your rooms for one person use. I think it would be easier on the patient if they had their own room and not share with another because of visitors, certain types of care needed and plus when a person doesn't feel good, they don't really want to share a room with someone else who doesn't feel good.
It's just a thougth, but one I think you should consider. Having a room to myself without having to pay for a private room means alot to me and that is one of a few reasons why I would prefer at the moment, to go to Steamboat if need be.

I agree Gardner. There are many talented people around here and alot of it is the simple things like you mentioned. I love to watch people cuz they do such amazing things when no one is “really” watching. Or they can take something simple and make some really cool stuff out if it. Like the guy over near 9th and Rose who has make a rooster or some kind of bird out of a shovel………minus the handle! I've always gotten a kick out of that thing.
Now this is on to something different. Has anyone looked out at the moon tonight. It is so amazing. I don't think I've ever seen it so orange like it is tonight. I just had to share that with someone…..anyone. Hubby is in bed already and the dogs just don't seem to really care what the moon looks like!! ;o}

Ok, I've been here a bit over 28 years. I've never heard of anything like this happening before and my husband has talked to many of the “lifers” around here and none of them can remember such a thing happening either. As for David Johnston, in 1985-1990 he would have been anywhere from 9 to 14 years old! Now I guess he could have jumped off them but some how I kind of don't think so! As for the tow truck driver, I just don't remember anythink like that happening either! But if I didn't know the man personally then chances are, I'd have forgotten.

Did you all read the letter to the Editor in todays paper? I feel terrible for Ms. Hill's loss of her brother in such a terrible way. However I can't help but wonder if she would be singing Bonnie's praise, if the DA's office weren't willing to look at re-openning her brothers case??Just my 2 cents worth.

Oh I agree with you on that one. But since my kids are out of school and I've not been employeed there for years, I'm not sure what goes on there anymore and were the cuts should take place. I know one thing for sure, what ever is cut, someone is going to be mad.

I use to work for the school lunch program and from what I understood they got very little money at that time from the district for the program. It was pretty much self-sufficient. Which I am sure is the reason for the higher amounts paid for the lunches now.I asked once when I heard they were buying hamburgers from McDonalds if that was cost effective and they said yes. We use to cook the bugers and had a lady who made the buns. In fact pretty much all the bread was made from scratch, except that which was used for sandwiches. As far as stuff being prepackaged, I'm not sure how you'd get a prepackaged grilled cheese, but I do remember that we use to use these little containers to put the sandwiches in that looked like some of the ones you use to buy at oh say Mini Mart. It was a way for us to make the sandwich and keep it somewhat fresh for a couple days. Again I can't say for sure but maybe they still do that and you think they are prepackaged??? Take for example the canned chili for the chili dogs. How much does it cost to buy a can of say hormel chili as opposed to making your own. The meat alone is going to cost more then a can of this stuff, so if you use that and compare the rest off the stuff that is prepackaged, maybe it is actually cheaper for the school to buy the ready made instead of paying someone to make it.I know seems crazy to me too, but I'm sure they've looked at the cost of doing it both ways. I'm not trying to actaully take their side in this matter, because I've seen and heard about some things that make me think there is money that is not being spent real well. But what it comes down to is if you've got concerns about what is being served and how they spend their money, go talk to them. Ask questions. Maybe the answers will surprise you or maybe you'll figure your right and there is alot of waste in the program and that things need to be changed.

I agree with slashdot, not having to go back and forth to read posts is nice but the rest is the pits. I think the blank messages is the papers way of giving us stuff to talk about! lollike they are saying this is ok to chat about and don't cross the line

Bobby Jo Mitchell was an older fellow. He was a Craig native, I believe. Sold real estate and I think he owned and operated a ready mix place that is no longer here. I'm gonna miss that guy.

Roadwarrior, your not that far off. I've seen stores here in Craig that have an English word and then a Spanish word right below it, like at Mini Mart on their doors! I've seen it somewhere else too, but at the moment I can't think where.
