What all the stuff going on at the senior bldg? Why is police there every week? Why if Charlie Caghill can not get elected from the people as magistrate is he serving on the senior citizen? Why did they move the old people to church? Why dont they move court over to the senior building? Because all the officials are there more than the court house anymore This place blows my mind. Isnt the place for Meade co not Jefferson, Hardin, Breck, Greyson? So if the paper is right why are them people in charge? Why are they fighting? I hope I don't act like this in another ten years. I was hopeing to go there when I retire but I am afraid of that place now. I just hate that my tax money goes to people that ain't from meade co to sit there and fight. Maybe I should just build one here in my yard in Flaherty that everyone could come to and have fun & not fight.

Senior facilities are built to enrich the golden years for senior citizens. There are and have always been people on the board who have put their hearts into making it a place where people look forward to coming to. However, it has been my observation that there are a few individuals (not from Meade County) who are serving on the board of directors who should pack their bags and go home. It's time for someone with good leadership skills from Meade County to step forward and steer this asset for Meade County in a positive direction. It's very sad to hear and read about what is occurring. Obviously, these so-called leaders have no conscience or they wouldn't be acting so foolishly. I am not a resident of Meade County, but I want to see it be successful. My son offered many years of good and wholesome fun with his band on Friday nights. We made many friends there and have memories that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. I could see and feel the tension that was brewing before he closed his successful music business. How sad.

Charles Coghill is the problem. Always has been
always will be. He was that way when he was on Fiscal Court. Check his record. If he can not
do any better he needs to go back to Rock haven and stay.

Well the police was back. Every time someone passes gas in that place, they call 911. Will, people from anywhere any age can go there. The problem lies in that it's Meade Co Senior Citizens Center, therefore the board of directors should be from Meade Co. I have gone for years on Tues and Fri nights. They both have dwindled but I myself hate to go and be a part of an organization like that and that's something for someone who joined there in 1998. I've been pretty regular all the time. What happened to the good days of Tom Bayrd and Bill Bassett? This problem will never be solved now. A house divided can not stand. And boy are we divided. I'm sure I'll be there Tuesday for entertainment but it's not the same. A handful of trouble makers have ruined it for us old people. I just hope I can go this weekend and not have the police called on me. I never have in 82 years and would hate to think it would start now. I say get rid of the whole bunch, regroup and start over. I think it's the only answer.

Lets just say ,if this were teens acting this way they would have shut that place down. I think thats what should happen there. A lot of tax dollars go there and I dont approve of my money being spent for old farts to put on a side show of acting the way they are. Seems as if the police are called on a weekly basis. I thought that the elderly acted like my grandmother, but I know now that all grandmothers are not sweeties. Somebody step up and shut them down.

I hear there is a court case with part of the board anainst the others. Hope everone knows who is to blame. It is that Burroughs woman and Vane and Wheeler who have brought all this on. Burroughs is to blame because she has talked the other two into all this mess. She has to have her way about everthing or she just keeps stirring in it. Cant let nothing go. Her ass needs to run out of Meade Co. along with her live-in lover Wheeler. Vance should tuck his head and go back to Jefferson Co. I have been connected to this building since the eighties and never have i seen such a disfunctional board. What a shame it has come to this and what a shame that a hand full of fool ruin it for everone else. Get rid of these three, the Cotes and Blankenship and watch things get back to the norm.gotowork

Why can't we leave these poor people alone? Mary is a very good woman, I know. She is so kind and generous and doing things for others. She is always doing nice things for others wether it be in her church, her community or her state. She is a retired school teacher and I'm sure that she could easily go somewhere that pays for expertise in her many fields rather than donate her many hours of hard dedicated labor that she does for the senior citizens. I don't know her live in partner, nor the Burgess' but if they are friends of Mary's they are no doubt good honest Christian people. I just hope she doesn't think Charlie Coghill is a Christian, because HE'S NOT....he's not even a good man!

I think the people posting on here need to remember that this center was opened for the seniors in the community to use, whether for dances OR the senior nutrition program. However, after reading these posts and listening to many people who attend the center, what strikes me is how disenfranchised and upset everyone seems to be from the new board. Not that the board members are bad people, but that perhaps they are not working in the best interest of the people who need this center in the lives most of all. It was never intended to be a "for profit" center nor was the nutrition program expected to pay rent to use the facilities. To expect the nutrition program to pay for using the center when they can stay at the church for free, is simply ridiculous. Who would pay rent on their house if they were offered the chance to live there for free?? No one, so why would they think they can lure the program back with nonsense like that? I think the winds of change need to blow in another direction....and soon before everyone says "to Hell with this" and stops coming to senior center for good. Stop sniping about people in a personal way and work together to fix the problems!~

Very sad when people understand one side and not the other .Peopla from all aroUND MEADE COUNTY have the freedon of joining the senior citizens.Members from other counties can donate their time and effort to making a center what it is suppose to be,a place for the seniors to go and have fun and not be dominated by just meade countians.They pay their dues spend their money to come there and for some odd reason are told to pack their bags and go home.

As a member of the senior citizen center I find it hard to believe so many are so misinformed about their rights are as paid members.Our building is for our use,notfor the federal or state to force their way in with the help of some self serving members and local authorities to take away the rights of the citizens and to force us to pay them for being there.The hard working seniors who strive to keep it going while the (Do nothings Spresd hate and discontent to futher their agenda of state and federal dollars.(FORCE OPEN MEETINGS AND PAY ATTENTION)

The senior citizens does not recieve tax dollars.It is a private orgination funded by the volunteers fund raising and the renting of space to renters of a varity of programs ((GET A CLUE )) before posting.

It has been said by the members that they like it the way it is now they dont want it to change. why ??because it is being run the way it is suppose to be run.For the senior not the food program.Why should the seniors pay for a food program when they get paid by he state.They should pay rent just like the rest of the renters.It brings in money needed to pay for the utilities so you can sit there and enjoy the dance and visits with your friends and make a fool out of your self for complaining about all that you think is wrong.

The board was doing things the way it should be done.(For the benifit of all members)until charles coghill got on the board and started his selfserving campaign along with three other members on the board.Vance burgess and david wheeler was barred form the center for 6 months with out cause by the four board members Look out you could be next (WITH OUT CAUSE )

I find it strange that so many people do not understand that the food program wants to come back to the senior citizens 5 days a week which would take the tuesdays from the seniors day to make the money needed to pay the bills.The seniors own the building so why are they within their rights to charge rent to the food program.They run up the utilities,dirty uo the place.And the senior volunteers work hard to pay the bills,keep it clean so you seniors can have a place to got for your intertainment. Get it together people its your senior citizens building to enjoy not the food programs.

No senior should have to pay,period... Thisplace was built for seniors, and now we are in a fued as to who can use it. SOME OF OUR SENIORS THAT ARE LONG GONE WORKED SO HARD TO GET THIS PLACE BUILT FOR THE PEOPLE OF TODAY TO USE, AND YOU ARE SHOWING SUCH DEGRADING RESPECT... You have made the papers, drug in the lawyers and court system,that is only down grading what could be one of the nicest place in Meade Co. If you cant go there and have a good time without causing a disturbance then you should be kicked out..So I think Wheeler, Burgess and Vance have all created their own right to be expelled. You can either play or pay...

To my knowledge there is (N0) senior paying anything to use the senior citizens building.The food program is a state and federally funded program they recieve money to operate.Therefore thay should pay rent to help to sustain the utilities and etc. Get the facts about the lawsuit.It might make a difference about a more positive decision about who stays and who goes

It's you who does not understand. The nutrition program does not have a choice. It's required that they serve food 5 days a week, they cannot only serve 3 days as the board members want. The state was giving the senior center money each month for the nutrition program to be served out of the senior building. Now that the nutrition program was moved, the center has lost that guranteed income and has to work harder getting rentals just to cover the loss on revenue. The food program does NOT want to come back to the center, its the center that is trying to get the food program to come back! So I stand by my comment "why would you pay rent to use building when you have one you can use for free?"
Too many people do not understand what this is all about and it looks like you are one of them. The senior center is a not for profit center, so it's not expected to have a large bank account... which brings me to another point: What's the point of having all that money in the bank if people are so unhappy and have stopped attending?
