I have had the opportunity to hire and employ many people in my career. Having said that, I would be crazy to hire someone that looks like they just came from the shooting range where it looks like someone used their body as the target. Sure, it might be fun, or even cute; however, it is inappropriate in a work environment.
The first thing I look for in an interview is that they are on time to the interview. The second thing I look for is their image. If someone shows up to the interview wearing baggy jeans, a tank top, and piercings all over their body (visible; because I don’t care about what I can’t see), I will not hire them. If they do not have the decency to dress appropriately to an interview, why should I put them on my payroll? Image is everything. So, for all of you out there that have purple or blue hair, 10 holes in each ear, or their lip pierced, there is a good chance you might not get hired. You can be unique, and have your own style; however, have it on your time, not mine.
Why does a positive article written in the paper always contain negative comments by you. Why is the CDP Forum a place for you to continue to air your personal hatred towards the hospital, and other areas of the city? Have you tried to talk to the management at the hospital about the problems you have? If the were one of the patients that you discussed in your post, talk to their Executive team? If you were not the patient discussed in your post, then it is nothing more than hearsay, and not “Notthefacts”. I think that it is good that the hospital is busy. I know that every time I go up to the hospital, I see a more positive and helpful attitude from the staff. If you feel that the Board is mismanaged, then maybe you should put in your interest to be on the Board the next time it has a vacancy. Have you ever attended one of the Board meetings? I know that the meetings are open to the public. The hospital website says that the meetings are held the last Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
Okay, so I usually don't make comments; however, here it goes. This article was written on 3/9/10, it is now the 22nd, and we are still talking about this. I don't know Rich, Nancy, or their children. Nancy wrote a letter to the editor, and the only thing that anyone should have commented on is whether you feel that the child should have received a ticket or not. Beyond that, this is all just crap back and forth. Therefore, we should not discuss them in regards to this letter. If you want to create your own blog and complain about someone, then go ahead. However, this forum is to discuss and share your opinions on articles and letters written in the CDP.
P.S. To give my 2-cents; the officer did his job. He was within his rights to give the young man a ticket. Maybe it would have been nicer for the officer to give him a warning; but that was his call to make. Finally, I think that this discussion thread should be closed because we are no longer discussing the original topic.
I feel that your comments are deleted because they are derogatory, and might contain vulgar language. The website can be accessed by anyone of any age and some of your comments are not suitable for all ages. Again; your negative comments on another CDP article. Do you have anything better to do than sit online and bash all of the articles that pertain to Law Enforcement. Perhaps you have been arrested, and harbor some ill feelings; I am not sure. Have you tried outdoor sports as a past time? I have heard that running around a track, or doing pushups can help relieve anger.
Most of us in this community pay taxes, and your 2-cents is always worth putting in. However, why do you have to make such negative comments about good things that happen in the city? This officer saved a life, and maybe one day will have to save your life. If you have a problem with the law enforcement, bring yourself down there and make an appointment to speak with the Sheriff Tim Jantz or the Chief Walt Vanatta. The personal attack you have on people in the city is crazy. We all have our own opinions; however, most of us will express our criticism constructively, and don’t create a public bashing session regarding the people that are here to protect and serve us.
I think that the biggest reason only 11% of the citizens turn out is that they feel their vote does not matter. People have problems going out to vote when they do not have options. They have the option to pick the only name listed or don't have to submit their vote. It does not matter if they vote or not, that 1 person will get into office. We need more people that want to make a difference in our community to run for office. We don’t need career politicians; we need everyday citizens that want to see change, and that are willing to help make it happen. When the citizens see there are choices and that their vote does count and does matter, maybe they will be more apt to coming out to vote.
Unless Tom Williams publicly says that he used the money raised for his own personal use, we cannot accuse (libel-written or slander-spoken) him of misuse. Maybe Tom would like to show us where he donated the $6,000 to the cause. If he is not willing to present the documents, maybe the citizens of Craig will come forward and tell the CDP how much they donated to Tom Williams and this cause.
While I think we should talk about who should run for office, I really think the focus should be on the conduct of our elected officials. I understand that they are citizens just like the rest of us; however, I feel that they should set the example of how everyone in the city should act.
