Tactic has resident more than ‘disgusted’

February 24, 2013

By MINDY KAUFMAN To say I’m disgusted over the possibility of our county government trying to change a law to suit themselves would be an understatement....

"We didn't get what we wanted, so let's change the rules!"

Reminds me of a spoiled brat who's losing a game and takes his ball and goes home...

Machinehead..It's sad that you are lacking in the brain department. You abviously DON'T have a clue or know what you are talking about. You are a sad example of knowing who allies are and who your enemies are!

caregiver...Im embarrassed of nothing I say or write....Most of the people that work at the Home are afraid to say anything,and thats sad...My facts and information and accusations are spot on!.Dont blame me for hurting the Home,blame yourself and the rest that hide under the blankets and remain silent,especially the past Union president who did jack shiite!...Ask Joe Carrus if hes embarrassed....Thats right Im nuts and I take meds....Dont like what I write dont read it!.Dont make me laugh you flipping fruitcake!.

Machinehead, personally I think you're nuts. Your accusations against others, which by the way, you have no proof of either, do nothing to help the Home. you're only hurting the people that live there and work there. Perhaps that's what you want in the long run anyway. While I understand your anger towards some of these people I feel you take it to an extreme that's embarrassing not only to you but to the Home as well

caregiver....Prove there was a sign..Who is the mole at the Home that lays in bed with Mr.Tranum....Mr.Tranum stirred the pot last week by calling area businesses saying there was a boycott sign posted at the Home....So what if there was,if a sign said jump off a cliff,would you do it?.They are all in it together,the Dunkirk newspaper,Mr.Tranums Chamber of Commerce and Greg Edwards....Stooping low and dirty game playing?.The gloves are off,no holds bar its time to stop the BS now!.

Mindy, I've been thinking the same thing. The rules didn't work for me, so change them? This is descending to the lowest order, and should be stopped at all costs.

MachineHead, there actually was a sign posted but when employees found out about it, it was immediately removed. The majority of us know that just because Mr. Tranum is for the sale that does not mean that everybody in the chamber is for the sale. We would not stoop to the level of boycotting a business because they don't support the county home. We'll leave the dirty game playing to the politicians.

There was a sign posted at the County Home that had a list of all the names of the Chamber of commerce businesses to boycott. That was not a lie !! It was removed and the businesses stated they were not in agreement with their spokesperson on the selling of the County home.

When are the people of this county going to say enough? We have a bunch of back door snakes running our Government.Weather your for or against the sale of the county home you should be concerned with the back door politics we are seeing here.Everyone needs to remember this at election time and vote.

Did you all know Todd Tranum started some BS last week that there was a sign posted at the County Home telling everyone not to shop at any business that supported Greg Edwards?....There was and is no such sign!....Mr.Tranum is a snake,just like Edwards and his band of banditos!.

The gas well was aborted the minute Greg Edwards found out any profit from the well was going directly to the County Home and not the General Fund.That is fact!.

The first CGR report was commissioned over 3 yrs ago, and Edwards ignored those cost-saving recommendations. Edwards authorized the expenditure of $400K to drill the gas well, only to suddenly abort the project w/o explanation. The latest CGR report (at a cost of $80K) contained many of the same recommendations issued in the previous report, yet Edwards still refuses to implement any of these cost-saving measures?

I honestly believe Edwards and CCH Admin Hellwig deliberately operated the home in the most costly and ineffecient manner in order to gain support to sell it.

As Coughlin said: "somethin stinks," especially when this facility is worth so much more, yet it suspiciously only attracted 1 interested investor, who by no small coincidence, just so happens to have done business in the past w/the same marketing firm that Edwards hired.

I certainly hope that people realize this change of law doesn't just affect the Home!! I had heard a while back that the legislature and the county exec were going to do this so the writer of this article is right about him knowing all along that he could've done this!! but yet he sat back and complained of all the money being lost there. Something's not right with this whole thing.

AGREE!!!

I too am disgusted that our legislation would attempt to change the law just because they lost the vote.

Things don't go your way..no worry we will just change the rules.
