I was absolutely appalled while attending a parish picnic at Jim thorpe Memorial Park this Sunday, September 20th, 2009 to only DISCOVER a PET RABIES CLINIC BEING HELD INSIDE the Memorial Hall where weddings, food functions with a kitchen near by is held. There must have been at least 100 animals (basically dogs and cats) inside walking all over the hall floor and urinating and defacating on the floor while the owners of these animals simply picked up a paper towel and wiped it up and no further cleaning was done and then other people would walk through it and have all those germs carried throughout the entire hall floor....i would NEVER EVER have another function inside that building....as far as I am concerned the board of health from the the STATE will be notified due to this unacceptable behavior from the borough letting this be done.....i wonder how many other things like this have gone on in this building that i did not happen to witness and see for myself.

It is about time someone tells about the poop on the floor of memorial hall. No it is not the first time there has been poop on the floor. Last year when we came down to the hall to get help filing our taxes, we steped into the foyer and there were two big pile of poop on the carpet, no one was around to remove it. The people from the taxes told us the maintanence man was down staires and it was his dog that was running around. Heaven knows how long it laid there because friends of our came later and told us it was still there.

How about the so called person whose title is the margeting agent at the park, Linda who has not personally marketed one function to this day. I personnaly triped over her dog food she had kept in the cooler in the kitchen area and fed her dogs their also. when I asked her why there was dog food in our cooler, because we never had it there before I was told to mind my own business if I wanted to keep my job.

Looks like no one on council cares what goes on at memorial hall.

Could somebody please teach Toad how to use spell check or a dictionary.

Nice to see complaints about a rabies clinic that benefits the community. If you were a true animal lover you would be happy that such a program exists to help people get shots for their pets. A good portion of the people who go there because it is the only way they can afford to get the shots their animals need. A large percentage of the people who bring their pets there are seniors. Would it make you feel better to not have the clinic available to the community. If it was stopped because of your false comments would that make you happy? The best part of this is that you said you were attending a church picnic at the park. How can you attend a christian function, attend services every week and still have hate in your heart? Do you think that Jesus would approve of your comments or actions? You need to get over yourself get the hate out of your heart and live as the christian you claim to be. I was one of the people who benefited from taking my dog to the clinic I am a senior trying to make ends meet. I thank Carbon County Friends of Animals, the park manager and borough council for allowing this clinic, it is a needed service in the community.

No one is against having rabie shots given, you don't know what you are talking about or you don't care about health issues. Get your facts before you critize.

I have my facts straight, I was there with my dog. You need to get your information straight. The hall is an event facility, there are no health issues with having an event that allows dogs. There was no food being served or being cooked at the time and the shots were given outside of the kitchen. There are no health issues and you know it. What I find curious is if you were attending your parish picnic, then why did you go into the hall in the first place? If you did not have an animal with you that was getting a shot, then why did you even go into the hall? There were signs that clearly marked what was going on, I think you decided to just start trouble. People like you amaze me, how do you live with yourself? Do you sneak into other business and see what they are doing? You know as well as I do it is an acceptible event to have at the hall, that I as a senior benefited from. Would you sleep better at night if your comments made them end such future events at the hall? Would it make you happy if they were stopped and possibly a dog who whould have gotten a rabies shot but couldn't because the event was canceled because of your comments had to be put down because it encountered a wild animal with rabies, but did not have the shot himself that could have saved his life. When you look at yourself in the mirror are you happy with the person you see? Do you see yourself as a happy, giving, christian person? I bet thats what you tell yourself, but you know deep down in your heart that is not who you are. Anyone who would comment on a event that helps the community of animals such like you did is a sad human being with an evil heart. And you know it. I feel sorry for you. Its obvious from your comments that you were a former staff member of the hall. I think the key word is "former" its obvious you have issues with this. Give up the ghost and learn to take the time you give to being mean and vicious and turn it into something productive like volunteer work in the community, there are plenty of organizations in our area that would like volunteer help. Maybe then you will learn to be a better person and a better christian and next year at your parish picnic you can go and enjoy yourself rather that sneaking around the hall.
