To the Editor: Hospital neighbor wants input on expansion plans

As a neighbor of the Wood County Hospital, I would like to make sure the rest of the hospital's neighbors understand the ramifications of the proposed zoning change from S-3 Planned Institutional to I-1. The main effect is that it removes the requirement for public comment on any proposed hospital expansions. This means that the neighbors would have no ability to make comment to the planning commission or council about hospital plans that will influence their quality of life and property values. It looks to me as if the current hospital administration simply wants to remove its pesky neighbors from the process.
The problem is that the hospital is the oddity here. It is one institution in the middle of a residential area, and as such, it should be subject to at least a little extra scrutiny. There are many quality of life and property value issues that hospital expansion can and does affect.

Our bird streets area has some senior citizens and people with disabilities, who have a hard time in the winter especially in this snow and subzero temperatures.
But we have good-hearted neighbors. They always feel the need, and they always come and clean the sidewalks and driveways. These angels are Joe Tracy, Tim Hammersmith and Doug Capelle. Many thanks for every one of them, for the wonderful work they do for their neighbors.

To the Editor: BG woman critical of care at Wood County Hospital

On Dec. 20 at 1:30 in the afternoon, I suffered a series of epileptic seizures. The ambulance was called but en route managed to not get the IV in the vein which collapsed the vein. At the hospital, I was convulsing for four hours and all they did was not admit me, but let me lie and then send me home unresolved.
Is this what we can expect of health care in Wood County? I have insurance. I am fed up with an inept, nincompoop and incompetent medical system in Wood County?
One solution would be to go back to the way we used to have our doctors do our doctoring. Forget the fancy gadgets, have them use their five senses to diagnose us. Also, really understand why there is medical illness, don't push us around like we're nobodies.

To the Editor: What about victim's rights in execution saga?
Written by Jim Copley

In our local paper, on page A9 of Friday's edition was an article entitled "Killer's execution is almost 25 minutes long." The article was mostly about Dennis McGuire's execution and how it violated his constitutional rights. Quoted in the article was this, "All citizens have a right to expect that they will not be treated or punished in a cruel and unusual way." Dayton defense lawyer, Jon Paul Rion was quoted as saying, "Today's actions violated that constitutional expectation."
Just in case you may have missed the article; McGuire was being executed for the 1989 rape and stabbing death of Joy Stewart, a pregnant newlywed. Nothing was said about her constitutional rights or those of her unborn child. Nothing was said about their constitutional rights how long it took them to die after being stabbed? What kind of noises they may have made before they died. It is my opinion that he took away their constitutional rights and in so
doing relinquished his!
This is another quote from the article, "An attorney for the McGuire's family said it plans to sue the state over what happened." They best pray that I am not called to serve on that jury!
