Seems to me they would have already shown proof they have the capitol to run it...that being,if they have the funds.

I've said since it closed that it'll never reopen and I still believe that. Jeff Tibbals and the county commissioners don't want it to reopen.

The county commissioners do not care about this hospial opening back up. In the beginning there was mention of a grant, opening a emergency care clinic until a hospital could be operational there, letting another group take a shot at operating the hosptial, etc. Instead of listening to the public they listened to Dr. Kathy Martin and those that think they know everything that worked at the hospital previously and look where we are now. NO HOSPITAL. You have no one to thank but the wonderful Scott County Board of Commissioners and Mayor Jeff Tibbals for once again listening to the GOOD OLD BOY system. It is time people wake up. They are taxing us to death and giving away our county. WE have nothing to show for all the excessive tax dollars we pay. NOTHING!

I believe the county has more reasons for working their wonderful ideas of taxes and no hospital than what we know.(More taxes for better roads to come. What they really mean is better roads for Brimstone Recreation). One thing I'm sure of, it is not in the peoples best interest.

Jeff Tibbals went into office because he is a Tibbals and everyone thought he would do good to HELP this county. Instead he has done NOTHING but SPEND MORE MONEY and COSTUS TAXPAYERS MORE AND MORE. I am very disappointed.
