RPSO no better

Someone needs to ask a MBC member when was the last time the sheriff and his family attended church there? Looks like those good people got used. Everyone knows Mangham block votes. Its always been said if you could divide Mangham and carry either Rayville or Delhi, you can win any election.  (Feb 21, 2013 | post #20)

Richardson Medical Center in financial trouble.

Maybe the police jury should add some grounds for being replaced on the board. Getting arrested for any reason (drugs, alcohol, disorderly conduct in public, threating someone, domestic abuse to your spouse). If an employee of that hospital had acted in such a manner as that or been arrested for drugs, they would have automatically been dismissed.Also, they have to be at a certain # of meetings a year and can not miss more than 2 in a row. I heard that the physician thats on the board, doesnt show up for 3/4's of the meetings. How can you address concerns if you arent even there. I belive they drug test their employees so that must mean if anyone is found positive they would be repremanded or else why test. I dont want the hospital to close. We need RMC. Lets all pray for the new person and hope he can get things back on the right track and get us some new doctors in town.  (Nov 22, 2011 | post #36)

My fault with the board is that they have hired some real "winners " to be administrators. Mike Cooper was the last decent one that hospital had. David Kervin was ok, but he really wasnt involved in the day to day. Thats how Kathy Cooper got into her position of power. Kervin not paying attention. Then they hired Bill Klamfoth. He started out ok, but brought a CFO from yankeeville who thought she was at a huge metropolitan hospital. From what I heard, she plugged the books to say what she wanted them to say. Then they had a management firm come in. That was a cluster mess. Then came the last guy, who was on nothing more than a power trip and hired and molded a bunch of "yes" people. This new guy may not be from Richland Parish, but atleast hes not from Wisconsin. People may not want to use Richardson doctors, but if a physician wants you to have lab, X-rays, Cat Scans, MRI's or Ultrasound ~~ Richardson can do it, no matter who your physican is. We need to keep this place open, so if you have to have any of the above services, go to Richardson.  (Nov 20, 2011 | post #16)

Sheriff's race

I hate election time, it brings out the worse in people. Friends turn on friends, family against family. You people cant have everything. If hes friendly, hes part of the good ole boy club. If hes a little shy, hes a snob. If he doesnt work for the sheriffs office, if elected he is going to fire everyone, if hes with the sheriffs office now, he isnt going to change anything. Maybe just maybe, if Gary gets elected he will do the right thing and run the office like he wants to instead of more same ole same ole. If Lee is elected maybe he will keep the hard working employees and let the "you owe me" employees go. They both have good qualities. Lee is more qualified, thats plain as can be, but sometimes whats on paper isnt the right person for a particular job. Cast your vote your way and I will cast mine my way. Then after its over ~~~ work to make Richland parish a better place. No one wants to move to and invest money in a community thats divided. Formal education isnt everything, but did either graduate anywhere besides policy acadamey?  (Nov 15, 2011 | post #245)

Acutally, he (the administrator) told the board he wouldnt renew his contract unless he got a $20,000.00 a year raise, the board would not come to the hospital and talk to the employees and he got a bonus check. When the board told him they would not go along with that. They discussed back and forth and then he got up and said "thanks for your support" and left. I have some friends who work at the hospital and thats what they heard (from a very reliable source). I didnt know this guy personally, so I dont know what type of fellow he is on a personal level, but from all accounts he was pretty power hungry and didnt like anyone questioning his decisions.  (Jun 1, 2011 | post #3)

Who would be the worst sheriff in the 2011 election

I am sorry if any thought I was implying that these gentlemen went to MBC for votes. Infact, I was trying to state the opposite. I believe they are running because they each want the job and you are right MBC is a great place to worship. No matter who is running, they all have to know that every part of their life will be under a mircroscope. Maybe thats why so many qualified people dont run for office, they dont have think enought skin. Good luck to all the candidates.  (May 31, 2011 | post #26)

Who would be the worst sheriff in the 2011 election

I havent decided who I am going to vote on yet, but Lee, Linne and Gary all go to Mangham Baptist Church. I think we all deserve second chances ~~~so Lennie and his past infidelity probably shouldnt play a part, but that does say something about his character. Gary has not really been in law inforcement that long and I am afraid he wouldnt be able to stand up to the political pressure of busting your friends children and possibly your running buddies Lee and Claude know law inforcement,but Claude really hasnt been out in the public for years. I dont even know where he lives. Lee and his family have been going to Mangham Baptist for almost ten years (if not ten) and didnt just come there because of possible votes. Dont have a clue why, probably because someone invited them and they have a pretty good pastor and church family. I dont like the fact that sme of the deputies are lying about who Lee will be hiring and firing. Just waiting to see how it plays out in the months to come.  (May 30, 2011 | post #23)

rayville hospital

If you use a facility long enough, you will have a bad experience. There are so many factors that have to be considered. My family has used the hospital in Rayvile since 1974 and overall we have been very satisfied with the service. We have been inpatient services, X-Rays, CT Scans, Labs, out patient surgery, echos, holters ~~~ just about everything. Also inpatients surgery ~~~ several gallbladders, appendectomy, wisdom teeth, hysterectomy ~~~hummm I may have left something out. Rayville hospital has an open MRI, not everyone has that. I once heard someone say "that doctor in Rayville read so and so's x-ray wrong. He didnt know what he was doing". Well Rayville doesnt have a radiologist. Their X-Rays read by the same doctors that read the ones in Monroe. I for one like to go to a place where I am greeted by someone I know. Most people who fuss about the hospital are about the emergency room and thats a staffing company because none of the physicians in Mangham, Start or Rayville will take their turn in the ER.  (Feb 2, 2011 | post #7)

Who is going to be the next sherrif of richland parish?

Why should a little gossip, slander and hurtfull comments on this site be a surprise? Its what makes Mangham what it is. I can say this because I have lived here most of my life. Went to school here, lived here, infact my children went to school here. Which would explain why they moved as soon as they could. Nothing ever changes ~~~~~ except the names lol. If you are a member of the "ins" then you can do it all without so much as a slap on the wrist. BUT if you are an "out" then everyone spreads any little half truth or poor judgement you have ever made. Do you think this girl is the only one in Richland Parish who stole money from an organization or place of business? No but she is an outsider and maybe she made some people mad because their child didnt cheer as much as one of the others, or she had to stand in the second row instead of the front. (what a joke). What she did was wrong and she should be charged, but what about all the others. The "ins" get to make restitution with not so much as a one line mention in the Riverfield Gazette (Beacon)or a visit from KNOE or the sheriffs dept. Its small town politics ~~~ always been here and it aint going anywhere.  (Jan 27, 2011 | post #182)
