Another anonymous letter went out to the BOD. Keep the letters going. If they receive enough of them they'll have to respond. Also, include those in the community......the City manager, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, Times-WV, Mike Caputo, Butch Osborne(who tried to help), FSU (students need to know there may not be a local hospital), Alan Mollahan (no longer has a political interest in it), and any other community leaders and businesses who have an interest in keeping the hospital here for their own financial gain. Most people don't know what's going on or they haven't been FORCED to take part because no one has pulled them into it. Make sure to list on there all those that received the letter so they can't pretend they didn't! Pull together a large group of workers to stand outside the board room before, during, and after the next meeting. You don't have to say anything...just make your presense known. Send the letter to the mayors of Mannington, Rivesville, Barackville, etc. The outlying communities have A LOT to lose if the hospital closes! Think outside the hospital box. Get more citizens involved. Not only are there safety in numbers, there are more people demanding answers! Just some suggestions. I hope it helps. I do believe one or two brave people speaking up won't do much. But if you can organize and then involve more of the area's leaders and citizens, the more success you'll have. Good luck. You're not just fighting for YOUR jobs, you're fighting for ALL of Marion County citizens. And they need to know what is happening.
Why anonymous? Put your name on things you send to the hospital if you want to get someones attention...

Pension

Sorry old timers. So much for that one...

For the public that may not know:
Half the hospital staff had their pension contributions frozen(without their permission/vote), the other half voted to have theirs frozen, majority won, to help the hospital save some $$ and tread the waters for a little longer...

If you are going to inform the public about what is going on, at least tell the whole story. There are 2 different unions, and non-union employees. They all have different types of pensions. Union 550 and the non-union employees were not permitted to vote due to some sort of federal law that encompasses their pension. However, 1199 was permitted to vote because of the type of pension they have, The way you say "without their permission/vote" makes it sound like the hospital is to blame. The hospital can not over rule federal law. 550 was given the opportunity to make a decision. Granted, the individual employees could not vote, but the representitives made the decision to defer.
Also, there are stipulations for the hospital. Everyone will get paid back WITH 10% intrest. So dont act like the hospital is just there taking our money.

@Agree: For the record the EKG staff DID NOT come out of this situation BETTER OFF!! Only one person kept a fulltime job one had to go from part-time to a CASUAL status and the other 2 no longer have jobs. PLEASE get your facts straight before commenting on something you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about!!!!!!

You honestly think it'll be paid back! As already stated, don't hold your breath.

By the way, they are reimbursing at 10 percent. We normally get 6. Therefore there is only an additional 4 percent to make up for the 6 we are losing now. IF we see that money again, it will be minus 2 percent. Learn simple math before you try to tear me down...

They are ADDING 10% to what we already get. You should attend a meeting and ask questions. We should be sticking togething instead of knocking each other down on this site. We are all in this together. Yes, some have suffered and lost more than others, but if you dont like what is happening on the boat, then jump ship. Otherwise, stay on board, attend some meetings, ask questions, and be an asset to the hospital.

Just found this discussion list and it is fascinating.

Regarding the comment from late September about the 4 or 5 properties being knocked down at Fairmont Avenue and 7th St, the following may be of interest (10 minutes research):

Previous owners =
Tax roll ID 3-3-220,221,222 (Pitrolo-Williams Realty and adjacent)
JHEK Enterprises (JoHelen and Edgar Williams & K??)
Sold September 15, 2011 to Medmark Development LLC for
$176,000
Tax roll ID 3-3-223 (house)
Wesley Staud
Sold September 15, 2011 to Medmark Development LLC for
$45,000
Tax roll ID 3-3-224 (carpet store)
Jonathan and Hiriko Cummings
Sold September 15, 2011 to Medmark Development LLC for
$137,500

Medmark Development LLC is chartered effective July 26, 2011 and owned by Glenmark Holdings LLC, Canyon Rd Morgantown (Exit 7 of I-68) with other officer being EMH Holdings LLC, Kingwood. Glenmark has been involved since 1984 in health care facilities management.

If they spent $350,000 on just the land, there is no telling how much they'll put into the building, which sure looks like it will be designed to compete with FGHI. At least that's what people seem to think when you ask.

There is nothing more erotic than looking into a microscope all day such a turn on. What else do you expect to do after hours.

From the sounds of it, things are not happening after hours. Can you imagine the things they see under those microscopes? GROSS
