Interesting question. Why DOES Quanah have an airport? We have no policital townhall meetings. None of our elite citizenry that I am aware of have planes or pilots' licenses. We have no FedEx or UPS hub.

So, other than housing a rodeo complex that gets used 2x a year and neglected the rest of the time, what is the purpose?

don't know but that can't be with all the money going out on everything else. That would be so sad. At least for us tax payers.

The hospital is not paying their vendors or note payments. I wonder if this means Mr. Nail's consulting company is not getting a regular check. Just a thought. Yes Ms Darling is leaving but I am not sure about the lay-offs. Talk is that the hospital is in terrible trouble and that the board will be liable for the decisions that have been made. Hope everything that I have heard is not true.

It will sure be interesting how things play out in the days and weeks ahead. Perhaps the little dictator has made some decisions that are going to rear their ugly heads. Do not understand how we are purchasing some many new properties when the other bills are not being paid. The members of the hospital board who have given this man absolutly no limits will be faced with some pretty signicant problems. The sly little schrew Scott Nail will exit this town under the same cloak of darkness that Edgar Fox did and no one will know how to find him to hold him accountable for the spending he has done. Taxpayers beware..........

Finally, proof. He just admitted taking money under the paragraph regarding 401k. If as of Friday, May 13th they were brought up to date through April, where had the money been prior to the 13th? Using contribution money deducted directly from an individuals paycheck is a federal offense.

Mr. Bird, that is enough to prosecute!

Hmmm, I wonder.........

Amanda Darling is leaving (why)? I have heard that the hospital has exhausted its line of credit to make payroll. I have asked for the financials through the first quarter of this year -- as of October 2010 they had posted losses of $1.3M (M as in million).

Hmmm..........

It is election time people. Get out there and vote for someone who will put a rein on the spending and make that board accountable to their community. I will be voting for Vickie Smith as she has no direct ties to the hospital (no relatives working there), and has the backbone to say no to unnecessary and unbridled spending.

Yes, we need a hosptial, one that is proportionate to the community it serves. Dallas we ain't, folks! So time to pull it in and manage it properly.

I wonder if this puts a stop to the new Nursing Home?What will become of Leslie Manor?Will the board members be held accountable?Will the hospital wind up like the one in Bowie?Any person with half a brain knows you must never borrow more than you can pay for.I guess our local leaders now qualify for a job in the U S government. lol

I heard that the old board is still in and that they refused to let Vickie Davis into the courthouse after the election was over, but Scott Nail was in there. HUM. Seems kind of funny. When I ran for office, everyone was there afterwards to see the results and no one was turned away. Also, a daughter and sister of one of the candidates was in there counting. If I were running, I would demand a recount.

Report it to the Attorney General. All of this hospital 'stuff' smells from miles away. Why hasn't someone retained counsel?

Something to ponder: The hospital is not paying their vendors. Mr. Nail is no longer an employee because he has his little 3T Solutions (or whatever it is called). Does this not make him a vendor and thus should be waiting on his payment just like the rest of the vendors? Wish someone could get the scoop on this. The Board damn sure doesn't know. I bet they can't even tell u what he pulls in annually from the hospital. The Board consists of Smilin Jack, Mr. Personality, Terrible Tony, Miss Stewardess, Miss Bankruptcy, Miss Squinty Eyes, and Mrs Western Store and none of these folks are capable of reading a financial statement, much less understanding one.

Mr Nail has dipped into the employees' 401 K to make payroll. Sounds a little illegal to me. I wish Vickie would have got on there because she would have "give him hell" and made him accountable. She knows how to operate a business or entity conservatively.

I believe ther were some shady dealings at the city election too. Saw some things that did not make much sense then or now. maybe both elections should be recounted.

you don't think that 3T Solutions is one of the vendors not getting paid do you? I hadlry think that Mr Nail is going to give up $17,000 a month in wages -- mabye that is why the others are not being paid timeley?

I have seen a sneak peek of the hospital financials for April 2011. Bottom line is year to date LOSS of 845588.77. The loss for April alone was 127539.82. The budgeted amount for April was a profit of 176768.34. Looks like someone doesn't know how to calculate a budget very well. Also, Mr Nail sent an email to employees on the evening of Saturday May 14th (election day) that rumors concerning the 401K benefits and hospital financial woes was not true. LOL! He is too stupid to know that his employees are not quite as dense as he wants his board to be.

Well once again we have a new edition of the Quanah Tribune Chief this has nothing but glowing articles on Nail Memorial hospital. Mr Nail has done everything that he can to provide jobs/positions to people who are not going to question what they are being told to do. The board members have their heads in the sand. The sad thing is their responsibility is to the tax payers that elected them and the board in turn SUPERVISES Mr. Nail and not blindly nod their heads and say YES, YES, YES. Why are there never any explanations or answers proveded to the community. It has also been my experience that when someone is vehmently denying an allegation there is often some underlying truth. There has got to be some accountability for Mr Nail. WE know he can spend like crazy and he has talked a good talk ( at least to the board)the rest of us know he is devious sly fox and we are residing in the henhouse. I have been grateful that there have been opponents running for the hospital board the previous two elections and I am saddened that neither very intelligent and qualified candidates were not elected. Have some serious concerns about one of the candidates had multiple family members who worked the election in various capasities. Why is this not a conflict of interest? This is another manipulation by scott Nail, he has one board members family member that is employed in the business office of the hospital,and he needs for that ally to stay in place.
