To the Editor: BG man takes offense to letter brutus 2009-08-27 10:37:51 And the world is flat, the earth only been around 6000 years, the sun revolves around the earth. Did I leave out anything?
To the Editor: How many times must we take it on the chin? brutus 2009-08-27 10:46:35 Hey I agree with you about the thought of hard work brings rewards. 40,000 closed factories, 8 million jobs lost brought a lot of rewards for the CEO's who sent these jobs overseas. The insurance company execs get plenty of rewards for working hard not to pay claims. The bean counters get plenty of rewards for eliminating jobs. Ah yes corporate capitalism.
To the Editor: BG man takes offense to letter DLF 2009-08-27 11:03:14 It never takes long for the residents of Rightwing Crazytown to start in with the name-calling. They accuse their political opponents of being Marxists, communists, Nazis, and worse because it's easier to yell out insults than it is to form a reasoned argument. It's time for the playground bullies to leave the debate and let the adults have an intelligent discussion. By the way, I'm still waiting to find out what a "uniformed healed liberal" is.

Justin Taylor Kristen Leimbach Kelly 2009-08-27 13:40:02 I worked with Justin when he was a cook at the BG Mall Quarters and Restaurant. I was shocked and saddened to hear about his passing. Justin was such a sweet guy and will deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
To the Editor: How many times must we take it on the chin? disturbing 2009-08-27 14:52:18 I'm sure brutus would be all for giving the "corporate capitalists" more bail out monies.
Team up to make homes affordable areyoukiddingme 2009-08-27 14:59:47 This is absolutely stupid! A starter home is a home that you can AFFORD! There are plenty of homes in this city for under 150k that are a heck of a lot nicer than my "starter home". These types of programs do nothing but put undeserving people into brand new homes when they are more than able to purchase an older one. Too many homes and not enough buyers = people having to lower prices on current homes to sell them. Isn't this type of logic what got us all into the housing crisis in the first place? Meaning: putting people into homes that they normally couldn't afford. I have a great idea, lets work hard, buy what we can AFFORD and stop whining about not having what we want!
To the Editor: Health care bill concerns voiced Brad Anderson 2009-08-27 15:17:19 Right now, Medicaid and Medicare patients have dominion over thier health care (unless a power of attorney is signed). The fear is with national health care, they wouldn't have this anymore. My previous comment stated that they already have, to use your word, "consultations". The fear is that we will "let" people die to save money. Mr. Kennedy fought to save his life. Under national health care, how many 77 year olds with brain cancer will get every option to fight it and live? HR 3200 will affect "reproductive rights of women". How will this not effect Hyde? It has to the way it is written. Now, I'm not going to get into a discussion regarding abortion, but I have heard "reproductive rights" thrown around in discussions regarding abortion. brutus, we can agree to disagree on all of this. That's fine by me. My issue with you is your arrogance and condescending attitude with those that don't think exactly like you. Your world isn't gray either.
To the Editor: Health care bill concerns voiced brutus 2009-08-27 15:42:06 Brad did you look at what you write? It is always "the fear is". You have no basis and no facts. How can I have an intelligent conversation with you when your basis is fear? You know we could probably reduce the amount of abortions if people who call themselves "Christians" wouldn't ostracize young girls who are pregnant. The Christian religion has been hijacked by the do as I say not as I do Evangelicals. To many think they are God and pass judgement on people. God will be our judge, not you, not me. And women who have abortions will be judged by God, not you or others like you. And it is still not in H.R. 3200 no matter what you believe, it is not there period.

To the Editor: Health care bill concerns voiced brutus 2009-08-27 19:34:37 Oh one more thing. It is funny how you reference Sen. Kennedy and his brain tumor. Why didn't you reference Bob Novak who was diagnosed with a brain tumor about the same time as Teddy and died a few weeks ago? Brad, people do die. Brad, 2 guys with virtually unlimited resources and they still died. Can you guys really see beyond your fear and hate? Go towards the light.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care noonespecial 2009-08-27 19:57:24 Brutus, how about the military? I assume that you are attempting to use the military as an example of our governments ability to effectivly run an industry. If that is the case you need to research your arguments a little better I am a military member and come from a military family so please understand that I back our military members more fervently than most. That being said, the military is neither efficient nor profitable. Furthermore, the military is essentially a socialist regime within our nation. And speaking from first hand experience of the military socialist medical model, its horrible.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care brutus 2009-08-27 21:13:12 I too come from a family with a military history. My dad was a WWII vet and frequented the VA hospital in Ann Arbor and was very pleased with his treatment and care. The Rand Corp. a conservative research group rated the VA as best in care and efficentcy among all healthcare in the US. Lets see do I Believe you, who has an agenda, or a research group who actually has facts. Let me see. noonespecial, I do my research now do yours! And your arrogance shows when you say things like you back our military more fervently than most. And one more thing, don't ever question my or anyone elses support for the military!
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care noonespeciel 2009-08-28 06:31:00 Brutus, I did not intend to question your support of the military, so please excuse any unintended insult. However, if your father managed to obtain descent care from a VA hospital then I am very happy for him. Unfortunately that is the exception rather than the rule. May I ask when the last time you visited a VA hospital was? BY any chance was it within the past two years? Additionally, VA hospitals are the civilian side of the medical services provided to military members. Base hospitals are far worse. I have no agenda against allowing everyone healthcare. I don't particularly care for paying $390.00 a month out of pocket for individual health insurance, but if that personal expense ensures me better care than I have experienced courtesy of the federal government then I am happy to pay.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care brutus 2009-08-28 09:23:33 Just for a moment, if what you say is true about base hospitals and VA hospitals, which it is not, when an indepedant group tells us they are the best in care and effientcy, what does that tell you about private care? And It is not the exception. Just because you believe something doesn't make it so.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care wow 2009-08-28 11:19:24 brutus, you should change your name to never wrong and will argue about anything and everything. Oh and I know it all as well, and I believe everything I read. That would be more accurate. 3 of the base hospitals that I have been to, their health care is less than attiquite. Im sure brutus is going to tell me Im wrong though. How is life in your ivory tower? Hey brutus, I have a challange for you. Find one thing wrong with our current government. haha
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care brutus 2009-08-28 11:53:56 One thing that is wrong is that they have not arrested the right wing nuts who make threats against our President. You would agree that they should be arrested right? Giving tax payer money to faith based orginizations. I can give you more.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care brutus 2009-08-28 12:10:27 And as I have told others on here this is not about me being right. It is about people who spread lies, fear and distortions. Don't spread this stuff and I won't have to correct it with facts and references. Don't want to see me comment, Tell The Truth, simple as that.
To the Editor: People, not government, key to health care noonespecial 2009-08-28 13:12:58 I do believe everyone should have adequate healthcare. I do not believe that any of the capricious cowards (right or left) in office are providing effective or efficient solutions. I support government measures to legislate healthcare providers, but not to provide the service itself.
Boy and his heifer make fair history Sherry Richards 2009-08-28 14:38:11 What a great story about such a wonderful young man. Landon is my grandson, and we are all very proud of him. He always tries to do his very best, be it school, sports, or his most important activity , raising and showing champion beef. His brother Levi has steered (excuse the pun)him in the right direction toward being a champion. Levi also has many trophies under his belt . Congratulations to the whole family on their success
Committee makes county park pay recommendations sivicman 2009-08-28 14:43:08 Everyone needs to quit crying about these pay increases and pay the piper. People you need to wake-up and quit voting for ANY levy. Every time there's a levy on the ballot the politicians lie to you as to what the money is going to be used for. As the saying goes "You Can't Fix Stupid".

The lessons of butterflies - Teacher talks about life in the garden, in the classroom Mary McGowan 2009-08-29 08:43:22 What a nice article. For the past two summers I've noticed hundreds of tiny butterflies when I walk in my flower garden; they fly all around me and make me feel like I'm in my own private butterfly garden. How wonderful that Ms. Garn shares her knowledge of the butterflies with young children.
Committee makes county park pay recommendations phil caron 2009-08-29 09:11:25 There is no more precident for wage increase the main reason the US auto industry has priced themselves out of the market. Of course the last to come to the table are anyone relying on our tax money including the park district, school districts, and other governmental agencies. The reality are businesses who tell their employees you will take a 25% reduction but not the inflation proof group described herein. The age old practice is finding some fancy pants consultant who follows the script - find a way to compare and justify increase - we don't care how far fetched. It continues to defy todays economic situation while the tax payers have no say in the decisions. Please advertise the current wages for new applications and you will find all the talent you need without any increases. Give the current employees an opportunity to experience no job, no benefits, and they would likely suggest a reduction in their pay to keep their jobs. It is not schools and park districts as usual. Quit patronizing these situations while violins play - join the real World. Phil Caron

Hope fades for compromise on health bill brutus 2009-08-30 12:20:04 It is time for the Democrats to do what they need to do and get real health insurance reform without the Repubs. It is also time for people to realize that if it doesn't have something to do with making the rich richer, Repubs want nothing to do with it.
Joeann Rectenwald Juanita Ropp 2009-08-30 14:34:10 Fre, herry and Joe I am so sorry to hear of Joeann's passing, I wrked with her at American Lincoln. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Joeann was so much fun to work with,she will surely be missed.Keep all the good memories close to your hearts. Hugs and Prayers, Juanita Ropp

To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions brutus 2009-08-31 10:36:15 Great letter Judy! Good points and information.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse Free Bird 2009-08-31 11:33:52 If her life is in such a disarray then she not only put her kids at risk but patients.
To the Editor: Rides to fair parking lot appreciated Hmmm 2009-08-31 11:45:44 I do agree that it was nice to see people that needed a ride get one, however it seems we pay our sheriff alot of money to do a job and it should not include being a shuttle driver. If Sheriff Wasylyshyn wants to campaign he should do it on his own time!
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances DLF 2009-08-31 12:10:06 Gay people have, and deserve, all the same rights and protections as the rest of the citizens of this country. There. I said it. It is indeed unfortunate that communities have to pass ordinances to protect those rights, but homophobes like Mr. Fries make such laws necessary. In my view, the willful embrace of bigotry is itself much more of a "deviant lifestyle" than anything Mr. Fries decries in his letter.
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances Roy Biggins 2009-08-31 13:11:21 DLF, Mr Fries put his name to his words, why won't you?
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions useyourhead 2009-08-31 13:21:08 You bash politicians and talk show hosts for their one sided or missinformation about the proposed health care system and yet you write a one sided letter about it. Hipocrate ?
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions brutus 2009-08-31 16:46:26 I am being serious here useyourhead, what is one sided about her letter? And who did she bash? Really, I'm serious I don't see it.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse don woods 2009-08-31 18:34:21 Some of you are judging her unfairly. You are saying she's guilty before a judge and jury have said so. What if it were you that did this???? Think twice.
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances Marlene 2009-08-31 19:10:49 I'd like to remind Mr. Fries that heterosexuality IS a sexual orientation, darling... I'd like to know the moment you woke up in the morning and decided to like girls instead of guys? As to sexuality being a "choice" and laws protecting on said "choice" shouldn't be allowed, then in that vein every law protecting religiour persecution and discrimination should be stricken from the Constitution too! After all, religion is NOT genetic, there is no "Christian" gene, or "Jewish" gene, is there? As to the slur of "recruitment, darling, what do you call all of the religious types who troll BG's streets knocking on doors *but* recruitment?
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances Roy Biggins 2009-08-31 20:44:16 Marlene, calling someone "darling" ?? Hmmmm, sure that is a good choice of words for your cause? Hard to practice what you preach. Hipocrate?
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions useyourhead 2009-08-31 20:46:49 Of course you don't brutus. I have a pretty good idea where you head is. And I'm being serious too.
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances brutus 2009-09-01 06:32:15 What is a Hipocrate?
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances User 2009-09-01 08:33:20 maybe a hipocrate is a uniformed healed liberal?
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions brutus 2009-09-01 10:37:00 OK, my turn. One of your leaders, Glenn Beck, actually spoke the truth when he called himself a dirtbag and low life. LOL. Why did it take so long? Now the other convicted felon, Rush, needs to come clean. Wooo Hooo.
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances brutus 2009-09-01 10:46:21 Hey i understand you Republicant's have a hard time when there is more than 2 words in a sentence. Just because you can't comprehend doesn't mean we Liberals can't read and be informed.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse JJFriend 2009-09-01 10:49:52 The sad thing is that this stuff was out in the open. The good thing is that the house sitter was concerned enough about the children in the home to do something about it and not just let it go. Hats off to that person.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse BB 2009-09-01 11:36:01 The evidence is clear otherwise her attorney would not be trying to have the case thrown out due to her fourth amendment rights being violated. Just watch, this case will be made to “go away” just because of her last name. Typical BG.
Portage $196,411 short by end of year cynthia 2009-09-01 12:54:35 Get rid of the police department !!!
Portage $196,411 short by end of year sean 2009-09-01 13:19:49 get rid of the lazy police department. is it really a coincidence that when 2 police officers stopped writing as many tickets as usual the whole village is in a financial crisis? this situation would have happened many years ago w/out the work of these 2 officers. the police department brought in a lot of money. why didn't they ever get a new cruiser? bad management and bad chiefs!
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances useyourhead 2009-09-01 14:01:33 Nice to pick a part a misspelled word and avoid what was said. Maturity at it's best. I guess it's easier to put someone down than to address the topic.
Portage $196,411 short by end of year coanator 2009-09-01 14:06:39 And this is why I am moving out of Portage.
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions useyourhead 2009-09-01 14:19:17 Like I said brutus. I had a pretty good idea where your head is, and with your last comment, you proved it. Neither Beck or Rush, are my "leaders". Not sure where that came from. Are you having conversations in your head?
To the Editor: Health care outrage based on misconceptions brutus 2009-09-01 15:18:47 Come on what is the other side? You have had ample opportunity to state what you call the other side. Do it then.
To the Editor: BG resident opposes votes on ordinances brutus 2009-09-01 15:21:30 Lighten up and state your case instead of calling names. Whose not mature?
BGSU hockey gets a second chance bgres 2009-09-01 17:56:59 Players and coaches want to play in a nice, updated facility; look at Miami of Ohio's facility(where did they end up last year?..yah) Raise the money, build a new facility next to the new basketball arena and the talent will flock to BG. You can't blame the current players for lack of motivation when their own university doesn't even stand behind them...typical Dr. Cartwright. Maybe she can give her raise that she took back and turn it into a scholarship for a deserving student.
In training bgres 2009-09-01 18:02:21 Stay strong Marine! I appreciate and thank you for your service. Come home safe to your friends and family. Good luck to you.
Portage $196,411 short by end of year PortageCitizen 2009-09-01 18:57:35 Or... keep the police department and learn how to manage it a little better. Maybe just keep the chief full time and have only one other officer. Then there are less employees and expenses that come with them. They should also consider scheduling their hours around the usual rush hours. The Police department is by no means lazy, it's just lacking proper management. Did anyone realize that in the month of July alone, the chief's hours were cut, then reinstated, two officers left the department, and one was on extended leave? And maybe Portage is having a little financial difficulties because council SAID YES TO PURCHASING AN $18,000 MOWER THAT WILL END UP COSTING NEARLY $28,000+ instead of purchasing a new (and needed!) used police cruiser for say, around $10,000? I am not saying its not the police department's falt, because they are held slightly responsible, but what about the council? Go to a meeting, see how they "think" and vote on things... bet you'll get one heck of a laugh out of it too! The Police are needed. There is nothing to debate there. Could they and should they manage the department a little better? Yes. And if you are not from Portage and have not attended the meetings, PLEASE don't make rude and judgemental comments about Portage, please take into condiseration what we as citizens have had to go through due to councils' poor judgements and lack of thinking. Oh, and Coanator, I highly doubt that is the only reason you are leaving Portage....
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse Concerned Patient 2009-09-01 20:25:44 Allowing illegal drugs in her home, is not only against the law, it endangers her children, and it clearly violates (what should be) her moral, ethical,& professional values as a holistic (body healing the body)Doctor. BG Childrens Services did a tremendous disservice to her children, by forcing them back into her care (or lack of). I am completely shocked that she is allowed to practice with such a huge lack of not only common sense, but judgement! If she does not have the basic concern for the well being of her own flesh & blood how can anyone be convinced she will even concider doing right by them??? Looking for a new Chiropractor

To the Editor: Urges signing petition against BG ordinance brutus 2009-09-02 09:08:29 Dr. Miller you ommited a group from your list. That group being Racist, Homophobic old white men. This group has done more to harm our society and enviroment than any other. Any other!
To the Editor: Weston man opposes 'Obamacare' brutus 2009-09-02 09:20:11 Healthcare used to be non profit back in the 70's. Then the HMO's and for profit insurance took over and here we are. Outrageous premiums, denial of care, high co-pays, high deductables and fat cat CEO's making millions by dening coverage. The private companies had their chance and greed won out over healthcare. Private companies won't do what is best for the people so the people, that is what Government is people, have to. Government is the the people and the people should have the power to choose.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse Ex Patient 2009-09-02 10:13:47 I implore Judge Reddin to do the right thing in this case. To throw this matter out would have far reaching consequences. Not only is she a danger to her children but to her patients.
To the Editor: Can we afford this Otsego project? Otsego-Parent 2009-09-02 10:55:00 My comment is to Lisa Hatfield – as you made your comment about the rebel rousers and the smug look on our faces as we legitimately questioned the board…well I will like to see your face when this falls flat and your friends and neighbors realize what you the board has done. The sorry thing is that the kids are the ones that will truly suffer. Signed, Pulled my kids out of Otsego and sent the to BG.

To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much brutus 2009-09-02 11:12:54 It is funny Karl, actually it isn't, that you were not concerned when Bush went to the Camp David retreat for 487 days, or when he went to the Texas ranch for 490 days for vacations. Gee that was 1/3 of his Presidentcy spent traveling to vacation spotson Air Force 1. Nobody was "minding" the store when 9-11 happened. Kind of hard to be transparent if you hide in your office all day like Dick Cheney did. Bush-Cheney had 8 years to help the middle and lower class and didn't do squat. It has not even been 8 months for President Obama. Oh thats right, he is a black man and has different standards according to you and others like you.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse Shorty 2009-09-02 11:41:14 Ex Patient: The good ol’ boy regime is alive and well just with a new generation. WCH Ready works is known for soley referring to Huntinton, maybe Dr. Wojo should rethink this choice.
To the Editor: Can we afford this Otsego project? OTres 2009-09-02 12:05:38 Mr. Dawson, Thank you, you are one of the few that understand the total obligations that must be met for the so called free money. I believe the school board does not realize the full obligations, and if they do then they are gambling on the fact that their feet will not be held to the fire to meet the obligations of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The board has not deliberated or discussed any of the mentioned obligations. As a matter of fact this board has not had a dissenting vote in the last 10 months of board meetings and work sessions. Simply amazing, a total and absolute disregard of all the taxpayers, voters and parents. Just wait until the new school is built, and residents of Grand Rapids and Haskins hears this tremendous sucking sound of their children leaving town everyday on their way to the central campus. By the way, maybe Tontogany will provide all local town baseball,softball,cub scouts,boy scouts and girl scout programs since the board has decided they all belong together in one location. And now that our permanent improvement millage is no longer, our new schools will not be maintained as the current buildings never were. It is truly unfortunate that the board has used its position to run over the voting public, and to my amazement they haven't figured a way to keep their positions with out us voting. I believe we are feeding a sick and dying horse.
Cricket alive and well in BG brian 2009-09-02 12:35:04 Although I've never really played, I think cricket is a great game. I need to go over someday and see if I can play with them.
To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much useyourhead 2009-09-02 12:42:42 brutus, is Obama a black man or african american? You keep changing the way you say it. You seem to be the only one bringing up the race issue. I see you choose to talk about the past again and not address what is being said. If Bush did all of that, then that was wrong. Now, what do you have to say about Obama doing it ? Love the generic "you and others like you statements" lol. brutus, you are good for a laugh, thanks.
To the Editor: Gay-to-straight therapy should be an option jeffinohio 2009-09-02 12:44:22 Uh, pastor? If 4 out of 129 disagree, then 125 of 129 agree. That's nearly 97% agreement that "no solid evidence exists that such change is likely."
To the Editor: 5th graders should attend camp camp supporter 2009-09-02 12:53:22 The May levy failed and the school board took it personally. It was poorly written. That's why it failed. They cancelled 5th grade camp as a punishment for the levy failing. Fund raising was done to pay for the camp and for what I understand, the pto's have enough monies and are willing to pay for the rest of the expenses. The school board would not allow that. Why ? I have no idea. Sounds like they are going to " take their ball and go home".
To the Editor: Urges signing petition against BG ordinance bg voter 2009-09-02 13:20:52 Dr Miller, where is the petition ? I know a lot of people that will sign it. I'm neither racist, homophobic or old. What they passed is simply wrong. One of the new groups named in the ordinance is creed. You have got to be kidding me!! Here is the definition of creed. 1 : a brief authoritative formula of religious belief 2 : a set of fundamental beliefs; also : a guiding principle If it is my fundamental belief as a survivalist, to wear camo and carry a gun and I apply for a job at Dunn's Kiddie Kare and get turned down, then I can claim discrimination?
To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much brutus 2009-09-02 13:25:31 Once again useyourhead you fail to use your head. You just can't comprehend things. I said he would have an arguement if he complained about Bush like he is complaining about Obama. Are you following so far? I will pause for a moment. Bush was wasting money flying around going on vacation, Obama is doing what he said he was going to do and keep in touch with the people. He said this before the election. Still got it? And the sooner people like you admit that is about a black man, because you never complained about the white man, the sooner we can have a rational discussion about the country.
To the Editor: Weston man opposes 'Obamacare' hmmm 2009-09-02 13:35:46 If their is a government health plan, who pays for it? Tax payers? I am a tax payer. So I would be paying for my insurance from work and the government plan?
To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much useyourhead 2009-09-02 14:05:13 I can't believe it took me this long to realize what an idiot you really are brutus. You never said "he would have an arguement if he complained about Bush like he is complaining about Obama". Now the race thing. I have read many of your comments when YOU have brought up the race issue. Not a single Letter to the Editor was about the race of the President. That is all you. I am no longer going to reply to your comments. Time is better spent talking to walls than you. Good day.

To the Editor: Weston man opposes 'Obamacare' brutus 2009-09-02 14:46:08 The people who opt to go into the Government insurance plan would pay for it. Or you can keep paying high premiums with your private insurer and take all of the other things I mentioned above and continue to get ripped off. I am not sure why you think it is free? And besides all those people who go the ER now and can't pay who do you think is paying? And the ER costs about 10 times what a doctor visit would cost. Doesn't this make sense to you?
To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much brutus 2009-09-02 14:48:23 Actually you just made my point about race. Couldn't have done better myself. Thanks, useyourhead.
To the Editor: N.B. man: Obama travels too much Marlene 2009-09-02 14:51:55 I'm going to tag team with Brutus once again on this one! Shrub was an absentee President for his entire reign. It galls me to see the blatant hypocracy of the reicht, complaining about Obama blew up the deficit, Obama's waisting money on the "Clunkers for Cash", Obama's on vacation -- whine whine whine! It's time the GOP sat down, kept quiet and let the Democrats pull the country's ass out of the fire -- again!
To the Editor: Urges signing petition against BG ordinance Marlene 2009-09-02 14:54:34 Gee, Dr. Miller... I wonder if you would sign a petition to remove religion as a protected class?
To the Editor: He has more confidence in Canadian health care brutus 2009-09-02 14:55:32 I had a similar experience at a local hospital where the ER doc was insistant that I had bronchitis. Good thing my family was there to monitor my heart on the heart monitor and insist there was a heart problem causing me to cough. It ended up being a defective heart valve which needed immediate attention. Hope you are doing better.
Fair board looking at finances 4H parent 2009-09-02 14:55:44 Hmmm...perhaps they shouldn't have spent $5,000 on the "boomless" fireworks. I love how that was advertised as "boomless" but the campers and animals sure thought differently. I also did not see a mass rush of fairgoers hearding to the campground to watch the fireworks. I believe the campers (4H members & parents) would have rather had that $5,000 on barn improvements!!
To the Editor: Country needs single-pay insurance plan brutus 2009-09-02 15:05:27 I too am for single payer because that is the sure way to bring down costs. A strong public option would also serve to bring down costs by bringing competition to the insurancee industry. Mr Latta like most Republicant's have to have a controlled audience. He only wants to here from people who agree with him.
To the Editor: Gay-to-straight therapy should be an option Marlene 2009-09-02 15:18:38 It's been a proven *fact* that the so-called, self-appointed "experts" who tout the fraudulent "ex-gay therapy" have a vensted interest in the clinics, not to mention have been vehemently denounced from every professional organization in the country! "Ex-gay therapy" has literally killed TLBGs in this country, and tales of TLBG youth forcibly admitted to these "clinics" are rampant. Furthermore, did you know that the two gay men who founded Exodus eventually left the group, calling it a massive fraud? Did you know that one of the ministers who helped finance Exodus was Rev. Mel White, who now leads Soulforce, one of the country's largest ministries focusing on TLBGs? Rev. Boggs, homosexuality was removed as a mental illness in the 1970s. It's time you left the past and joined the 21st century.

To the Editor: Gay-to-straight therapy should be an option Marcy St.John 2009-09-02 19:13:10 I've read the Bible through several times, and I continue to study it. Christians are supposed to do that. Like you, I have a "biblical worldview", but I do not find the sexual "norms" you found in the Bible. The Bible is God's word to us, as best we have been able to transcribe and translate it for 3000+ years. God is complete, but our understanding of God is incomplete. "Norms" used to include slavery, murder of non-virginal brides, physical abuse of children, kidnapping, incest, and negation of the human rights of women, for starters. What the Bible says about same-sex activity, in about a half-dozen verses out of over 30,000, does not condemn those in loving, consensual relationships. It condemns abuse and promiscuity, as rightly it should.
To the Editor: Urges signing petition against BG ordinance jeffinohio 2009-09-02 19:43:52 You don't have to like gay people. You don't have to hire them either. You just can't discriminate against them. Sounds fair to me, though obviously not to a gender bigot.
To the Editor: Rides to fair parking lot appreciated give me a break 2009-09-02 21:42:20 I think he took a page from the good ole boys club. I bet former sheriff Kohl would have done it at tractor pull and had a brewski with him... give it up BTW who's time is Latta/Carter/Brown spending when passing out magnets and notepads.....
To the Editor: Country needs single-pay insurance plan General Custar 2009-09-02 22:30:30 Sure the 'public option' would lower insurance rate because the imsurance companies would quit selling health insurance. They already know a company that needs to earn a profit or follow basic business practices cannot effectively compete with the government which has no need or desire to make a profit. Of course any savings garnered would need to be used to pay the higher taxes because even the government will eventually have to cover some of its costs. The government has no business competing with private industry, period.
Case closed: No charges will be filed against Zeigler lurker 2009-09-02 23:21:18 Is Wood County a tolerant place for adults seeking child relationships?
Mental health cuts deep Autistic adult 2009-09-02 23:40:27 Money is being wasted on misdiagnosing autism spectrum disorders as being types of mental illness due to out of date professionals who do not understand how autistic people react to outside influences. Ironically it may be a lack of money which causes the misdiagnosis and resulting waste on improper treatment, unless some doctors do not care and are only out to make a buck so they diagnosis you with their best guess.
Case closed: No charges will be filed against Zeigler Interesting 2009-09-03 02:24:27 If he did it he should be punished however, a jury of his peers found that there was a lack of evidence in the case to indict him. Either there indeed was a lack of evidence or the jury of county residents did not pay close enough attention (which is probably the case). People need to remember that real life is not like TV. There is no magical lamp that shows DNA. There are not finger prints and DNA on everything. There have been plenty of criminals set free in this county because of the "CSI effect" that are now able to commit further crimes in this county; against you. Think about that if you are selected to jury duty and maybe you will take it more seriously.
BG chiropractor in court on charge of allowing drug abuse Concerned 2009-09-03 08:12:43 The other side of this is Neil Potter! His ex-wife has a restraining order on him and is wise to live over 1300 miles away from him. He is abusive and controlling. Doors have been kicked in and door frames busted off the walls in the house. It would appear as those being abused and controlled were locked in for protection. It takes a real big man to be menacing over a 90 pounder and two children. Hopefully some real justice will be done here and Neil Potter will get jail time! Maybe all of this will bring the Dr. back to a life of normalcy and more importantly her children.
To the Editor: Country needs single-pay insurance plan brutus 2009-09-03 08:42:13 You say Government has no business competing with private industry. Even when the lives of our citizens are at stake? Insurance compamies should not make a profit by seeing how many people they can deny coverage to. Should insurance companies decide who lives and who doesn't?
To the Editor: Can we afford this Otsego project? TAXPAYER 2009-09-03 10:28:37 How is it that Mr. Dawson can see what's wrong with this plan and the board can't? We have a superintendent that this is his job, to informe the board of possable pros and cons. I think somebody is getting a kickback from all this FREE money. Anybody that thinks there is free money is smoking crack. For over $120,000 a year you would think we would get better advice.
To the Editor: Urges signing petition against BG ordinance bg voter 2009-09-03 12:39:41 jeffnohio, You may want to proof read what you write. If a gay apply's and doesnt get hired, they can claim discrimination. Even though that may not be the reason they didnt get hired. Sounds fair to me,though obviously not to a whiney the world isnt fair type of person.
