Why do you people keep bringing the sheriff onto this? This post/thread/conversation is about the hospital! If you have something against Jesse, hiw about starting your own thread ... Or better yet take it to Jesse!
As far as the commissioners and board of directors go ... Get em out!
As for the doctors ... If you don't like em, don't go to em!
JMO just like you have your own opinion, I am not being rude to you. But oh well, Like I said, I have no beef with anyone. No need to take anything to Jesse!!! I just think we need to clean up Latimer County and that includes all!!

Read all the post and then you will figure out how his name got brought into this. There are much more than just a few doctors at fault here. It's the result of a good old boy system of running things that has brought down our hospital. I'm not sure if you know it or not but our hospital it ran by a board. The board is appointed by the commissioners who work together with the entourage of county elected officials to spend our tax dollars. In case you haven't noticed, our commissioners and a few others always seem to get "their person" in these elected positions. They also have a history of misusing and wasting tax dollars.

I agree that the only way to stop this is to vote out the entire crew and start from scratch.

Obviously I have an understanding of how this all works but you all seem to be lacking the understanding that you are wrong!
The county commissioners appoint who they want to the board of directors, the board is supposed to answer to the county commissioners, yet until all of this current crap has happened, that wasnt happening!
If it were happening - the hospital would not be in the mess they are in now!
The board appointed the two administrators that caused "problems", and had they been paying attention as board of directors should, they would have seen the money coming up missing, the letters from Medicare stating they owed $2.6 million in fines/penalties... BUT THE BOARD DID NOT REPORT THIS TO THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS!!!!!!

Y'all think ALL elected officials are behind this, and you are wrong! Sorry to say it so bluntly but how else do I explain it?
I've seen the board meetings occur, I've seen only board members, Dr. Rana, the DON and sometimes a nurse or two be the only ones present ... Don't you think the county commissioners should have been present during these meetings? Instead if getting half truths AFTER the fact?

Use your brains .. Please!

We are using our brains. Listen to yourself. The commissioners appoint the board and the board reports to them. It is the commissioners responsibility to provide over site of the board and clearly they didn't. As you said, they haven't even attended meetings.
As for the inclusion of all county elected officials. This is just one of many examples of misuse and abide of tax dollars. As Stated before, all elected officials are responsible for over site of county finds equally. All of the current elected officials were hand picked by the commissioners. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be that the commissioners want to make sure they all go along with their plans of how and where to spend money?
The only way to assure that the good old boys are weeded out is to get rid of all of them and bring in new blood. They will all do whatever they can to make sure it never happens. I can only image the cover ups and illegal things a new group of elected officials would find once in office.

I'm pretty sure that some of our elected officials are coming up for re-election next year. It's time for others to step up and take their place. Dennis Deela needs to be the first to go. Has anyone heard of anyone good that's going to run? I sure hope that the local politic machine doesn't prevail in keeping that minor impregnating slime ball in office.

Anyone heard what's the latest on the hospital? Earl Jeffries said in the paper that the hospital is bankrupt. Heard more people are quitting.

Mike Elder and Jeremy Bullard are running for Dennis Deelas commissioner seat. Don't be surprised if Dennis doesn't run again...he says he isn't but he's said that before.
Lmao

I bet he don't. Mike Elder is his little puppet. A vote for Mike is a vote for Dennis.

I'm also willing to bet that the people of Latimer County are stupid enough to vote lil ol Mikie poo in. We could have Fat @$$ Jesse James as sheriff and Fat @$$ Mile Elder as commissioner. What a screwed up county.

I can bet you this is not true! He is running due to his Grandfather and Dennis use to be friends. When Dennis had to lay off people his Grandfather was one of them. I hear they are no longer friends because of this. So no a vote for Mike Elder is NOT a Dennis vote. Also Dennis no longer resides in District #1. HE CANNOT RUN AGAIN!

Well, is the hospital going to close? Anyone heard anything other than what's being put out by the newspaper (which isn't telling the whole story).

Last week there was a letter hung in various places of the hospital by someone on the staff requesting that the board members and administration finally give them some honest,truthful answers about the finacial situation of the hospital. Those letters were taken down shortly after they were hung up. I am not a hospital employee but I am family member and I feel these employees and their familys deserve some answers. The Board Members and the Administration of LCGH have forgotten that the employees livelys hoods are being effected here and they deserve to know how to continue to provide for themselves and their families.

Ask Dennis Deela what he thinks of Mike Elder. You won't get the answer LMAO is telling. They never really did get along. Jeremy Bullard is backed and supported all the way by Dennis Deela.

I see someone speaking the truth about the Board members needing to fess up to their mistakes to the community and their employees. By not answering questions and speaking in circles they are turning their backs on the very people who have tried to stand by the hospital and support it. And yes maybe I do feel entitled to some answers seeing as how my husband is an employee and provides for our family. If his employer is unable to pay him or continue to provide him with a job I feel it is only right and legal that they discuss this with him not just leave him guessing from week to week.
