It is truly sad when one person can dictate whne other person can dictate when people can be healthy or not. I am a local doctor whi has sent many of my patients to the SWCC weight room to get in better health due to high blood pressure or whatever physical education needs they must have. Just today I learned that the SWCC weight room wull be close for over 10 days. This really upsets me as a doctor. They have the best equiptment in the area and could help so many people that need the gym to allow them to live to live a long and healthy life. Why would they close on days when workers are willing to work? I just don't get the current president. Why would he harm the elderly to such an extinct? They have paid there dues to bothe society and the college. Why would he want to chance their physical well being just to prove a point? 10 days is just too much! He has elserly staff that works out. Why would he allow them this kind of sad treatment? Does he not care about their lives or family? Being healthy and working out does not mean you are a redneck it means you wanna live longer so you can be with your family. Shame on you Dr. Mark Estepp for putting biased opinions ahead of healthy family members who live to be old.

Hey Doctor Jekyll of Dumfries you forgot about something! You forgot to identify yourself as a doctor when you posted these 2 messages on the questions for the powers that be thread...

.Sounds like to me that must have struck a nerve. Everyone this might even be Dr. Estepp himslef. Let's not forget he is devout christian and feels the need to use his office to push his relgious agends on all who are at the college. I don't think using words like bitch are very good christian example there mark. Trust me we all understand that you feel some what beneath Dr King, as you should with this horrible job performance, but if you want to talk about the good ol boys club then let's. Now you would never show any type of favortism now would you? Like aloowing art and music students to come and go as they please at all hours of the day and night. So I wonder if they will be allowed to use the facilities during the break? For your sake I hope not because it will be published in all the local papers. Discrimination does not look good for a man of your position. Also considering the new info regarding your wonderful salary of 165,000 a year makes me wonder how there is no funding available to make sure all aspects and departments are taken care of? There are more programs than just nursing. Although everyone I'm sure has heard of the tongue lashing you got for blasting another college for starting a nursing program. Now that wasn't very nice, you would think a man such as yourself would want to promote education everywhere not just at SWCC. Regardless I think you may want to take a step back and look at your problems cause I'm pretty sure you is at the end of its rope. Maybe you could call Dr. King, I'm sure he could give you some advice to turn this ship around and save your ass. Let's not be prideful now

To me it really don't matter whether that person is a dcotor or not. The point they are trying to make is accurate. It really don't matter who you are or how much you work out. Missing ten days in a row is horrible. Just ask any doctor. It is very reasonable to close on thanksgiving or even Christmas eve and Christmas. But every other day is insane. Its sad that the president would make an assumptiion on people that work out just because some idiot cussed him out. Regardless of how many idiots are rude, does not mean we are all the same. For the most part qnyone who works out at the SWCC gym are willing to pay for respectful hours. What more xould you ask for?

i agree, so what is it? was dr estepp whippd by a buff bully in grade school so now u make it your mission to shut down a gym? whats next? u get a splinter from your woodworking and u burn down your shop? i agree with these others,to a person who is desperately trying to get in shape the loss of 5 or even 10 days is a disaster.It sets u back 2 days of training for every one that you miss in the beginning stages.I am not saying the gym should be everyones personal playground and favors should be done.I am saying it is ridiculous that a community funded and built community center is used for everything but the intended purposes and shut down to the community at every whim of a man that our taxes pay to run the place.i have heard heavy talk that there are people gettin organized and politicians being contacted and if the ship doesnt get turnd around as a whole, the captain might be removed.when u shut out the community and run off the students and are left with an empty campus what purpose do you serve? none! time to put egos and vendetta aside and listen to those that ran the place with great success before you! i would call and beg the old professors and dr king to give you a clue how to do your job before you are gone! and that day might be sooner than you think.I guess we are just 'refrigerators with heads" I think you called us so maybe we arent smart enough to get anything done but we will sure as hell try.

In my OPINION the weight room should be closed permanent to the public not just for 10 days. As a tax payer and a business person in the community I do not want my tax dollars funding a weight room for the public. I have NO ISSUE with you working out, go find a gym, or the Y, and pay your monthly dues. The SVCC weight room is taking business away from the gyms in the area that employee people and pay taxes.

I couldn't agree more, if they wanna keep the weight room open it should be to factuly and staff only not the public. Its not as if they have great equipment anyway thats why I stopped going and starting going to that place in Tazewell much better, nicer people working there too. Not just a group of fowl mouthed kids getting into fights with their women.
