they need to replace Patricia Clark, she allows picks a chooses favorites.... workers and children. treats some better than others. Lets some workers get by with everything and breathes down other employees necks. her children get there from school and she lets them eat up all the kids food in the kitchen. They dont have a very good menu for kids.... i dont believe most 2 yr olds like chili and they make it with sugar. try switchin up the menu, Patty sucks as a director!

Paula Deen puts sugar in her chili so I don't see what the promblem is with that recipe! Just look how her boys turned out! I don't see why you're complaining.

I know some people who put sugar in their chili but I like it better without sugar. Just my personal opinion. As far as Ms. Clark I cant say anything don't know her very well.

For some one to say this about Patti has lost there mind. If you stepped in her shoes for probably 1 hour you would pull all your hair out. I know Patti very well and I think the person who wrote this is clueless. The immature person that has time to criticize someone on topix pretty much does not have a life. Putting brown sugar in a kids chili is not a crime. I think maybe they should replace there child care staff because i have heard a lot of things about them! So over all Patti is a great worker. Love you Mrs. Patti.

Patti is a great child care director! She is great with the kids and really cares about her job. If you have complaints, go talk to Tonya Wenz, Patti's boss. I am sure they will help you if you really have concerns. You are probably an ex employee who did something wrong.

So whoever wrote that first message is seriously ignorant & pathetic. I think you should get a life and do your own job. If you think you're so much better than Patti, prove it. Oh wait, that's right; you have a lower position than her- darn.. You must feel pretty low about yourself if you have the time to get on topix and criticize someone about what they do. Get a life and find something else to occupy you're time. It's obvious that you have nothing better to do. You're a childish individual who makes fun of someone else just to make yourself feel better. What a low life.

My dues have gone up, I'm told it is cheaper to join the RAC, YMCA staff is unfriendly, and just opened my locker that was crawling with cockroaches. Time for me to cancel my membershp

I come on topix most of the time to find and help people find good homes for the animals they can’t keep…BUT…I am a daycare owner and state licensed for 14 years. I really get tired hearing people put us down…Our chosen profession takes a special person, granted there are a few that shouldn’t call their self a “provider”, but most of us love our job. There are bad apples in each bunch…but try taken care of 10 to 12 kids ranging from birth to 4 and 5 years old everyday of the year…but I open my door every day with a smile, and I love my kids…yes I said my kids. Because when I care and provider for them 8 to 16 hrs per day, they are my kids during that time and I would give my life for them if needed, and I’d kill if anyone tried to hurt them…so do me a hard working woman, mother, provider, cook, nurse, teacher, etc…a favor and go dog a different profession for a while….Happy Holidays to All

Deb White is a breath of fresh air. A real improvement. Been at the Y since it opened in the 80's. Much more professional, a great attitude & if you mention something it is corrected by the next day. Could not be more pleased.

Not necessarily.....I follow the rules and I make my children follow the rules but keep getting dirty looks and snotty attitudes from the lifeguards and recently my child was reprimanded for jumping in the pool after three other children jumped in and nothing was said to them.....
