Beaten at the finish line

March 3, 2013

Pssst ... I’ve got a hot tip for County Executive Greg Edwards and his year-long crusade to sell the Chautauqua County Home in Dunkirk. Give it up already. Cease and desist....

You left yourself wide open for that one MaryAnn. I will be interested to see what article you write when Edwards gets the last laugh and the Home goes bankrupt. As an Observer employee I think you should be neutral and keep your personal feelings to yourself.

The county home will be sold. When the elections come, all south county legislators who voted against the sale will be voted out of office. Even Keith Ahlstrom said he was voting to keep the home not because he thought it was the correct thing to do, but because the people he represents want him to vote that way.

doesn't say much about the people in this county then does it fredoniafred. If the county finds a good buyer and the home is sold then so be it. But, I think the fact that many people in this county, politicians included, are willing to sell the Home without any forsight into what will happen to all of us, because we will get old someday, is foolish to say the very least. Somebody at the last meeting got up to speak about the cost of long-term care insurance and I was shocked at the price so I did my own research. Unfortunately they were correct! If you can afford it then i think that's great, but all too many will not be able to afford it. Especially if you're older and on a fixed income. What may be a quick fix now, I fear, will become one of the biggest mistakes in this County.

Regardless of what anybody thinks about either selling or not selling the home, they should at least be able to objectively state their opinions as to why they think selling is either right or wrong. . This article sounds like something written by a union activist gone wild, with an 4th grade education. There is no basis whatsoever for the writer’s opinion other than she had a relative at the facility for a very short time. Very poorly written and articulated. Grade school prose, at best and a total embarrassment for the Observer.
