Talk to Bill & he will tell you the truth about why he left. He liked his job and it was a hard decision but a man can only take so much.

From what I know Bill left because when he went there he was promised a raise after a year. That didn't happen. I liked him. They (hugh) took advantage of him by dangling the carrot on the stick in front of him. I'm glad he's moved on to a better employer. I don't really know the new guy. He seems nice, and we can't blame him for taking the job. This is a problem with the executive of the Y mixing Family into the business. Nepotism is something you should always avoid when you're the one running a business.

Okay, I have had enough of some people claiming we don't have facts on Hughie. Well here is one no one, including the board wants you to know. In June the board approved Hughie hiring his mother as the evening cleaning person. No one sees her but she is on the payroll. She works 3 nights a week and gets full time pay. That's bull and needs to end

I'm shocked to hear he is hiring family. That explains why his daughter and her boyfriend are there all the time as well I guess. Nice job board!

The Director of the Y will have his contract renewed,period.No he isn't a nice person and from what I've been told much of what has been stated on Topix is probably true.The Y Trustees are like all other Board Members in this town,they get on a Board to make their ego grow even bigger.Board members of any organization are big only on themselves.Hugh will keep his job.I also beleive he has done good things for the Y in some areas.Kocab is human,having good and bad attributes.It's time to put this topic to rest.By the way,I'm a 5Th generation Van Wertian.I'm smart enough to know that things will never change in Van Wert.We are home to more complainers,backstabers,and crybabies the world has probably ever seen gathered in one tiny spot.All of you have had your temper tantrum now on both sides of the issue.That includes me.Let's all move on.

Good picture of Larry Bowersock in his Cougar days in "You Might Be From Van Wert If" on facebook. He earned outstanding back for the Cougars. Im sure he spent many days at the Y while growing up.

So long as he's tight with Shad (by the way, who names their kid that) he'll be sticking around.

If you want to be on the board you have to donate at least 1500 a year and donate time (cough) which doesn't usually happen. The money part yes. Not the time. These people are catered to first. So that means the cardio room, cycling room, and all the equipment that goes into the morning fitness class in the gym.

He is good at begging people for money. I could do his job on day to day level but I just don't like being fake and kissing someone ass to get a nickel out of them. So I do commend him for that.
