To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill useyourhead 2009-10-06 17:38:07 The Great Public Option !!!!! President Obama has repeatedly told Americans that if they liked their current health insurance plan, they could keep it. The problem is that independent analyses of the House bill indicate that millions of Americans would lose their private insurance, particularly coverage offered by employers. Indeed, virtually all independent studies conclude that the public plan would undercut private health plans, and millions of Americans would be dumped into the public plan. Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV) offered an amendment, which would require members of Congress to enroll in the newly-created public health insurance plan. They would thereby have to forfeit their private coverage, currently offered through the successful Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). Even though members of Congress often say that they should follow the same rules that they impose on everybody else, the rhetoric is belied by the House Ways and Means Committee action. The second Heller amendment failed, with 21 Democrats voting no. Good enough for us but not for Congress ? Why not?
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill useyourhead 2009-10-06 18:23:21 1 question Who Has the Highest Medical Claim Rejection Rate? If you can't find the answer, I have it for you.
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill brutus 2009-10-06 18:50:09 Do you even bother reading your own link? Obama did not lie, he was using information he was given by those involved. And I'm sure as smart as you are you would know there are HIPPA laws so they couldn;t check medical records. But if you would have read your own link you would have seen this was a tragic story for both. But as cold hearted as you are I'm sure you don't care. And 45,000 instead of 2. And who really gives a rat's arse what Congress has. We care about what we have. We don't care what the rich have, we care about what we have. Stay on topic. You are not even credible in your own info. And the info you have for Medicare at 6.85% was for 2007-08. Why don't you use 2008-09 when it was 4%? Cherry picking again.
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill useyourhead 2009-10-06 19:13:43 brutus, take the blinders off. Clinton lied, GWB lied, Obama lied. Yes, your hero Obama lies. If you don't think so or don't see that, then you have more issues than even you know. 4% is still higher than private insurance. I used the 2 to make a point. Apparently you you aren't intelligent enough to understand that. Why is the "public option" not good enough for congress? Stay on topic? Everything I wrote about is about health care. What topic are you speaking of?
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill brutus 2009-10-06 19:17:12 Did you even bother to look at the complete Metrics even for 2007-08 let alone for 2008-09? Once again you and the rest of the wingnuts start running without the ball. Read about what you are going to post before you post it. By the way to everyone else this was the right wingnut's big discovery today. They assumed the little wingnuts either couldn't read the Metrics at the AMA site or would not bother like our own here.
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill brutus 2009-10-06 19:54:22 Instead of making your smirky arrogant comments and "discoveries" just lay it on the line. You could give a S$#t less about people who don't have healthcare. You are only concerned with yourself and to H&ll with everyone else. At least then you would be honest and wouldn't have to play your games of look what I found.

Dave Riseborough diane hathaway 2009-10-07 06:29:29 Rose Riseborough is known to me through previous employment at First Federal State Bank, Bowling Green and then Sky Bank through merger/buyout. She was part of a loving family environment and always talking about the trips she and Dave would take to England. May I extend my sincere condolences to Rose and her family at this time of loss. There are never the right words or the right time to express them. May God be with you as you take the journey through recovery. Dave is with God and will continue to live on in your hearts. God bless you all. Diane

Portage mayor behind on taxes Larry Mahnken 2009-10-07 07:48:01 Hey, man, what if I, like, paid my taxes off with dreams, man? Whoa, I just realized that, like, I'm the MAYOR, man. That's like, far out, man. Whoa, things just got a little too real, I need to chill out.
To the Editor: Writer should read health care bill Don't Feed the Trolls 2009-10-07 08:11:00 In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response[1] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. This is a definition I found from another poster. You both should read it!
To the Editor: Doesn't want government in control of health care patriot 2009-10-07 08:32:38 I see an administration that is trying to make things better for the middle class--trying to fix what the past 8 years has done to this country. Your comments are all about cars and not about healthcare. It's time for a change. Maybe you'd be happier with a different government/country.
To the Editor: Canada has better health care gbat 2009-10-07 08:55:00 Dr. Anne Doig, the incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association, said her country's health care system is "sick" and "imploding", the Canadian Press reported. "We know there must be change, Doig said in a recent interview." "We're all running flat out, we're all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands." Canada's universal health care system is not giving patients optimal care, Doig added. When her colleagues from across the country gather at the CMA conference in Saskatoon Sunday, they will discuss changes that need to be made, she said. "We all agree the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," she said. Current president of the CMA, Dr. Robert Ouellet, will make a presentation at the conference about his findings when he toured Europe in January, and met with health groups in several countries. Ouellet has said that "competition should be welcomed, not feared," meaning private health insurance should have a role in the public health system. Doig said she isn't sure what kind of changes will be proposed when the conference wraps up, but she does know that changes have to come – and fast. She said she understands that universal health care, while good in some ways, has not always been helpful for sick people or their families. "(Canadians) have to understand that the system that we have right now — if it keeps on going without change — is not sustainable," Doig said.

That's part of the problem"... YOU KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS? BRUCE SHEPHERD! HE IS THE ONE IN CHARGE OF THE NUMBERS! PORTAGE WAS DOING JUST FINE UNTIL THAT MAN (WHO VOWED TO BRING DOWN THE TOWN OF PORTAGE) WENT INTO OFFICE!! I THINK CITIZENS OF PORTAGE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO GET THAT MAN OUT BEFORE HE EMBEZZLES EVEN MORE MONEY AND PAYS HIMSELF MORE THEN HE DESERVES!!!!
Oil wells a hazard brutus 2009-10-07 09:16:50 It should not be up to the public to take care of this. Go after the people or their ancestors who benefited from the wells to clean up and plug their mess. I'm tired of the public having to clean up after business and people who made money off something and leave a mess for the rest of us to clean up. C'mon Congressman Latta protect the public.
To the Editor: Doesn't want government in control of health care brutus 2009-10-07 09:38:07 Well Jill you need to get your facts straight. Of course you won't get much in the way of facts by watching Faux news all the time. The dealers have all been reimbursed with few exceptions. Of course Faux won't tell you that. And the dealers who were whining and crying did not do so until their lots were empty. Hmmmm Political Ploy. And 1st you were whining and crying about the Gov giving taxpayer money for the C for C program and now you are whining and crying that they have to pay some back. Which is it? And you finally get to the Medical part of your rant. Let me say Medicare, Medicaid and VA, all of which have much less paperwork than private insurers. So you trust a fatcat CEO who is out to make as much profit as he can for the shareholders than you do people you elect. Fascist.
To the Editor: Canada has better health care brutus 2009-10-07 09:53:05 Get real gbat, the CMA is just like the AMA a right wing political organization that does not represent real doctors. She even done something no other head up there did and that was to appoint her brother head of Alberta's medical association. A little nepotism there? Political organization thats all.
Oil wells a hazard ghoutz 2009-10-07 10:59:20 If there is oil seeping out of the ground...isn't this a good thing...seems to me there is money to be had and possibly an economy boost for Wood County. Stop spending money, and start creating revenue with Oil!Black GOLD! Right here in Wood county...have people forgotten? There is still an oil industry out there looking to drill in our most precious protected nature areas. If the oil wells are already here, why not reinvestigate if they are producing once again and help our Wood county economy? Hello who is listening out there? Does anyone see the potential here? (Not claiming to be a guru on oil production or re-use of old oil wells,just throwing out suggestions to boost the economy and use the resources we already have!!!Put your thinking caps on folks.)

We have oil seeping thru the ground and you write a story on how bad it is for the environment- WE NEED OIL_OUR OWN OIL IS BETER THAN SAUDI OIL! Lets go get it. The EPA is filled with unelected people making regulations, we the people haventy voted on. Oil is not a pollutant-its a commodity. Dont plug them. OPEN THEM UP!

Portage mayor behind on taxes Ben S. Shaw 2009-10-07 14:04:57 There is too much corruption in politics and perhaps someone should be impeached. Imagine if everyone in the village had the same attitude about paying their 1 percent tax the next year. The Mayor had the 1 percent tax initiated without a vote. It sounds like taxation without representation to me!!

To the Editor: Doesn't want government in control of health care Jill 2009-10-07 19:57:16 Hi Russ: I realized that it was a state tax rather than a federal tax after I had submitted the letter (I submitted it nearly six weeks ago). I have already written another letter to the Sentinel tonight pointing out that I had made a mistake in my original letter. Not sure whether they will post it or not.

Portage mayor behind on taxes concernedcitizen 2009-10-07 20:09:52 i am so glad that you people are perfect. council brought the 1% tax in not the mayor and it was IN on the advise of the clerk/treasurer. if only half you people would check your resources you would put the correct info in your comments. as to the mayors record is that any of our business? i know my record is not perfect can you all say yours is. i checked and yes he has some speed, some seat belt, some dogs running large, he is a REAL criminal. look at the real criminal in the clerks office. bills are still not getting paid on time add up a years worth of late fees and you would be suprised how much money that is. bruce said at the council meeting monday that the mower payments were all caught up, but call the lease company, we still owe over $100.00 in late fees. so he lied again. how long is the council going to let this go on and what about us town people do we continue to put up with the council letting this kind of stuff happen? THINK ABOUT IT!

To the Editor: Doesn't want government in control of health care AugustWest 2009-10-08 10:41:41 All I want is for you to present the links or facts that you state in your argument. It isn't difficult to copy and paste the links that you get your news or facts from. Like I said in previous posts I enjoy both points of view so just back them up, I have called brutus out for trolling too. And just to get back in the spirit of things: It is spelled HYPOCRITE.

Sorry for the typo. As long as we are in the "spirit of things". There should be a comma after posts and a period after back them up.
Perrysburg challenges collective bargaining not surprised 2009-10-08 12:36:59 The City of Perrysburg and the International Association of Firefighters Local 3331 engaged in negotiations. I'm sure both parties were clear on the process if an agreement couldn't be reached. I wonder if the City of Perrysburg would of had an issue with the current law if the arbitrator favored the city? The law has been in place since 1984. Perrysburg has had ample time to pursue a change with the law governing the collective bargaining process. I would be curious if Perrysburg was on the other end at anytime since 1984.
Portage existence depends on levy Tom Butters 2009-10-08 12:50:00 The person who is afraid to list a user name at the end of a comment really doesn't say much. The entire focus appears to be on Bruce, your Clerk. If you are not happy with the job your Clrek does run against him and get yourself elected. The problem with the town is your Mayor. The Mayor controls everything that happens. But considering the Mayor has difficulty in running his own life, maybe that is why your town is in the toilet. Considering all the purchases that town has made, it doesn't surprise me you are broke. Let me give you a quick list: A $50,000 truck (with plow), town hall roof, shed roof, phone system, high speed internet, computers, hired a company to plow (last year), hired a company to mow (last year), and the "Topper" gave your Police Chief 40 hours per week. I know, I know, but he protects us. Well guess what if you can't afford him to give him the hours. Besides, you could have given a regular patrolmen the hours with less pay. But common sense is not for Portage !
To the Editor: 'Clunkers' rebate is not taxable at federal level brutus 2009-10-08 13:17:31 Jill, Can we expect a retraction on the other non factual things you wrote?

Portage existence depends on levy Ben S. Shaw 2009-10-08 14:30:32 Tom hit the nail on the head. You make ALL these MAJOR purchases AND STILL YOU CONTRACT OTHER COMPANIES TO DO A JOB WITH THEIR EQUIPMENT THAT YOU HAD BOUGHT EQUIPMENT FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE. I had to use caps, so people will see. The council has to vote on these items; not the clerk!! They need to eliminate everyone from the Mayor, to the council, to the Chief and start over from scratch. Getbruceshepherdout sounds very close to the situation...HHmmmmm... I wonder how close they are to the Mayor!! I guess I don't need to say more about that!! I think everyone knows!!
Portage existence depends on levy sickandtired 2009-10-08 16:23:15 It is to late. Whats done is done. The finger pointing and blaming is doing nothing more than making Portage look even worse than what the mayor has already done. How sad that a little town such as Portage has to go down in the history books as the town that had the speed trap and the loser mayor who wouldn't even pay his own property and income taxes to save the town. The people who have done wrong know who they are but are too dumb to admit it. They would rather shift blame or spend their time on the news or in the paper instead of getting down to business and taking care of what is wrong. Shame on you all!

Oil wells a hazard Penny L Kidd Musgrave 2009-10-08 18:27:51 When Bowling Green decided to expand outside their city limits into the country, oil producers were forced to cap their wells. Don't blame the people who are passed on or their ancestors. Your commissioners and bankers who are long gone, probably profited from the sale of land. Houses have been built on farmground and oil wells of not too long ago. When you start changing the landscape and the underlay of the ground, don't be surprised what you come up with. For example, Findlay is flooding and can't figure out why. Ah,,,,,,, isn't progress grand?

Perrysburg challenges collective bargaining perrysburg resident 2009-10-08 22:01:56 I wonder what Perrysburg City Council's position would be if the arbitrator ruled in their favor. Would they be asking the Ohio General Assembly to take another look at ORC 4117? Would they be in arguing against the unions if the unions wanted ORC 4117 changed if they had lost? It appears to this lifelong resident that Perrysburg wants to be the Dublin of Toledo as Dublin is to Columbus without paying the obvious money that it took to make Dublin what it is today. City Council will waste money fighting this 4117 just like their wasting taxpayer money by trying to expand their rights outside city boundaries by requiring certain zoning codes prior to giving city services. Someone has to put Mr. Olmstead and Ms. Ermie back in their hole and I hope the Ohio Generally Assembly does that by refusing to respond to their request.
To the Editor: Questions asked about Issue 2 Marlene 2009-10-09 06:20:33 The Wood County Democratic Party has voted to endorse a NO vote on Issue 2. This issue is being touted as Mom, family, and apple pie, when in fact it's paid for, protects, and denies culpability of the CAFOs! If you see a 'Yes on 2' sign, please send the truth to the family farmers who've been duped to put the sign in their yard.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option Rocket 1 2009-10-09 07:47:41 Where in the Constitution of the United States of America is health care listed as a Right?
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option Tired 2009-10-09 09:04:40 We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Since when has everybody become an expert on the constitution? Promote the general welfare? What does that mean Rocket 1 since you deemed yourself a scholar of the constitution and it's meanings.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-09 09:12:29 It amazes me that people think the public option is the only way to fix the healthcare system. If anyone believes that their party has the best interest of the people in mind, you are sadly mistaken. Either side is unwilling to compromise to come up with a plan that will actually work. Deregulation is not the cause of the financial collapse. The U.S. economy is enormously complicated. Screwing it up takes a great deal of cooperation. Claiming that a single piece of legislation was responsible for (or could have averted) the crisis is just political grandstanding. There are many people that will complain about the company's that have moved out of the county to reduce their costs. These same people are still buying their products. Before you buy a product, find out where it is made and where customer service is located. I do. It is time for people to start taking responsibility for their own actions!! If you can't afford to buy something, don't buy it. An example. Over 82% of people own a cell phone. I have seen kids in elementary schools with cell phones when one or both of their parents no longer have a job. There was a family living in their basement for a year at Stone Ridge because they couldn't afford to finish building the rest of the house. People need reprioritize what is needed in their life, not what is wanted.

To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-09 09:30:05 Excellent letter Emily! Way to spell things out. But I have found you can put the facts in front of these wingnuts all day and they still can't comprehend. Single Payer would be the best solution both medically and financially but some of the conservadems and all the Repugs do not what to upset the rich. Once again nice job.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option AugustWest 2009-10-09 09:34:32 See useyourhead I totally agree with you. When the average American is in debt nearly $10,000 on their credit cards we have an issue. I don't know what the answer is on Health Care but there should be an affordable option for everybody.
To the Editor: Health care system should value people over profits brutus 2009-10-09 09:35:58 All the people can do who are against Healthcare reform is manufacture lies. Like the new lie of the week on Medicare cuts. Such lies and no ideas. Big, big money behind these lies.
To the Editor: 'Clunkers' rebate is not taxable at federal level brutus 2009-10-09 09:59:46 Other than name calling what is your opinion on Healthcare? Or are you just one of those who sits back and cry's stop it can't we all just get along. Sorry to important of an issue. Don't like it don't read the comments.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-09 10:27:30 brutus, thank you for making my point.
To the Editor: Health care system should value people over profits useyourhead 2009-10-09 10:37:16 Heather, you said "If profit is the motive in providing health care, it will always lead to denying needed services." Are you saying that all private insurance companies should be elimintated? There are exaggerated messages againts health care reform. There has also been exaggerated messages for health care reform as well. Don't you agree?

To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-09 15:35:26 useyourhead, glad to see you are on board with Single Payer. It took awhile but Welcome aboard!
To the Editor: Health care system should value people over profits useyourhead 2009-10-09 15:36:39 brutus are you heather? I guess you are under the impression that everything revolves around you. I will answer you though since I am a nice person. I didn't say that any of the messages were acceptable. Some messages were more exaggerated than others. Are you ok with any of the messages from either side that are exaggerated ? You referenced the ones from the republicans but not from the democrates. Thought you were all about the facts? I guess I was wrong about that.
To the Editor: Health care system should value people over profits brutus 2009-10-09 16:31:55 useyourhead said: "There are exaggerated messages against health care reform. There has also been exaggerated messages for health care reform as well". All those words you had in response, I did not see any examples. I could not find any that ranked with those, that is why I wanted you to enlighten us.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-09 16:34:44 brutus, sorry if you didn't understand what I wrote. I am not for that plan. I am not sure why anyone would be. That's alright though. You have a right to your own opinion, just not a right to your own facts. Obama: I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future. Period. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has found that Democratic plans in the House and Senate both would add hundreds of billions of dollars to the federal deficit over the coming decade. I am not for that. Are you?
To the Editor: Health care system should value people over profits useyourhead 2009-10-09 16:43:37 I am not aware of a ranking system for exaggerated messages on the issue of health care. None of the messages are acceptable. You obviously have, or are aware of, some sort of ranking system. I'm not sure how I can be more clear. ALL exaggerated messages are wrong.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option AugustWest 2009-10-09 16:57:35 What's a couple hundred billion among friends?? We might as well jack it up, let my kids pay for it.... ;)
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-09 18:13:21 You keep talking about these plans. Need I remind you, again, there is no final bill in the house nor the Senate. Once again you are cherry picking the Senate finance committee's plan and I am assuming H.R. 3200. I'll repeat it 1 more time, there is no final bill in the Senate nor the House period. So stop arguing hypotheticals.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-09 18:34:56 brutus, you are correct. There isn't a "final" bill in the house or the senate. If you want to get technical. I guess the possibility to change the current "proposed" plan to reduce the amount by hunders of billions of dollars is still possible. As much a possiblity as you being a republican. haha factcheck.org was my reference for those interested.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-09 19:05:24 On a positive note you and I agree the senate finance bill sucks. You for financial reasons and me because it is a giveaway to the insurance industry. Yippee we agree.
Portage mayor behind on taxes Larry Butts 2009-10-09 22:15:15 The village of Portage deserves a clown like this. One good thing about the guy though, he stepped up and took the mayor job when nobody else would (and still won't...). How's the speed trap going??
To the Editor: Perrysburg man criticizes board phil caron 2009-10-10 05:17:42 What a great article and just when the superintendent is out crying about the space problem. More good information to consider: The DeJong report projected a total of 5,399 students by 2004/05 712 more than today illustrating orchestrated miss information and levy lies. Smaller class sizes are a reward to the School Unions vote forcing you to hire more teachers while growing the bureaucracy. The Commodore Office Palace has the minimum potential of 12 additional class rooms. Move the admin offices to Jone's Trailer Park - problem solved. What could have been done with $3 million dollars solving real problems not parking lots. Gravel parking lots worked for many years. What was wrong with fixing lots not building waste of tax money monuments for architects. The education system have an entitlement attitude and think they are inflation proof. Yes Virginia, you can open your contract and be part of the solution not the main reason for the problem having 80% of the operating budget. We need 3 levies so people have the ability to support operations and not entitlement greed. #1 levy = improvements #2 levy = real operating cost #3 levy = wages.

To the Editor: Decides to vote against Issue 2 brutus 2009-10-10 07:59:44 I also will be voting against Issue 2. Time to stop turning control of our Government over the Corporations.
Portage mayor behind on taxes Xavier Baldonado 2009-10-10 10:49:51 O.k folks let's wake up and smell the roses. All those complaining about the mayor should have ran for mayor. Mark ran unopposed. That should tell you something. Mark cares for the town. Why would he run if he did not care. If you don't live in Portage than you should have any comments. Pick up that stone and toss it if you are without sin my friend. Don't forget you will be judged someday as well but not on earth. Now let's concentrate on what portage needs and stop complaining.
Donation of classroom material is 'A Day Made Better' for teachers Andrew Dickey 2009-10-10 11:58:21 As a teacher who has the pleasure of working with Deb Towns I agree that she is a remarkable teacher who deserved this generous gift from Office Max.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-10 14:30:46 Just thought I would throw in this little tidbit someone (useyourhead) about people questioning Bob Latta and refusing to do what the people want: "Michael, you make a request to Bob, then you insult and threaten him with God and to vote him out of office? Not very tactful. There is seperation of church and state. He was voted in by the people for what he stands for". President Obama was voted in by people who wanted Healthcare change among other things. People who wanted a Single Payer system but will settle for a strong Public Option. It is gonna happen!
Owens loses nursing accreditation braindead 2009-10-10 18:40:22 ITS NOT OWENS ANYMORE ITS SLOWENS LOL
To the Editor: Perrysburg man criticizes board phil caron 2009-10-11 05:46:24 Two Tremendous overviews! The one factor not mentioned by the Superintendent is regarding why students are coming back to public schools. It is not be choice - it is because families are losing their jobs and benefits not like the inflation proof school employees who expect their entitlements. Another major point not mentioned is each student arrives with about $5,000 to fatten their budgets. But NO it is always the poor school district - to heck with the rest of the World.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-11 06:34:32 I agree that he was voted in by people that wanted Healthcare change among other things. I am pretty sure the vast majority of the people would love to see a change in the healthcare system. What I have issues with is the way it is being done. Asking for bipartisan between the 2 parties, then saying any plan he will sign MUST contain a public option is just one issue I have. When the people voted, there wasn't any details of a plan. Now that it is getting more clear, there are a lot of things I disagree with. Neither party, or Obama, is doing what is best for the people. If anyone can't see that, then they have blinders on.
Portage mayor behind on taxes Ben S. Shaw 2009-10-11 14:06:39 Actually, Wolford got the Mayor job. because your other useless Mayor (you know... the one that wouldn't comb his hair)quit. Wolford was the President!! What's with you and your Mayor's hair?!
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option brutus 2009-10-11 14:21:18 Excuse me while I take my blinders off. Actually he did talk about a plan before the election. He just did not call it the Public Option. The name Public Option did not crop up until the WH decided not to back single payer. The President was asking for bi-partisanship, not those who voted for him. We wanted him to jam it down the right wing's throat, you know, just how Bush-Cheney use to do with us. We had plenty of issues with what they did and what was Cheney's answer? So.
To the Editor: Health care reform needs public option useyourhead 2009-10-11 18:18:34 Yes he did talk about health care before the election. He stated before the election, he would not propose a single payer system. I appreciate the honesty. Revenge over whats best for the people. More worried about jamming it down a parties throat than dealing with an issue. That should work. hahaha The past is the past right or wrong. It's time to let it go and deal with the present and the future.

Owens loses nursing accreditation RN student 2009-10-12 00:52:35 I find it troubling how Owens is trying to down play the seriousness of losing the accredidation. It seems they have done an exceptional job at keeping quite a secret for the last couple of years if the whole accredidation thing is being over rated. However, they have always been quick to promote the accredidation while they had it! In my opinion this is was fraud committed by an institute of higher education and they are just as guilty as Maddoff and should repay all of the students who are registered in the program. I also find it trouble some that the person trying to fix this problem has only been in this position for 3 weeks! Obviously, someone paid the consequence for this mistake, but it doesnt repair all of the time many students have wasted in the program thinking they are working for something they will now have to search and pay even more money to recieve!

Insurers mount attack against health reform brutus 2009-10-12 09:34:52 Imagine that. Insurance companies against insurance reform. They are really getting nervous about the Public option. The party is over for them.
To the Editor: Public option needed useyourhead 2009-10-12 10:14:57 Yeah. It's my money, everyone should be entitled to it.
To the Editor: Public option needed brutus 2009-10-12 10:43:18 useyourhead, read the AP headlines on what your beloved insurance companies want to do with your money. And you have no say as to what they can do with your money.
