Its sad that Mr.Edwards gloats about himself being the main reason for the Homes neglect.And he is recommended for State Governor?.You got to be County Home has been neglected for years since Mr.Edwards took over,and its not just him,its his sheep legislators also.Implement the g-damn recommendations that were made years ago and are still recommended today!.Get that gas well hooked up for free by Mr Cotton!.Negotiate in good faith with the Union,not have a vendetta against it.Stop wasting our tax money on your folly Mr.Edwards you are not performing your job duties in the best interest to the taxpayer.There are ways to keep the Home on even keel,with not much burden on the taxpayer.Expand the rehab unit!.Thats private insurance,not Medicare/Medicaid,a no brainer!.

The Home should not be sold period to anyone!.If you people only knew what is happening as far as the guarantee that when applying for admittance to a private facility a person is automatically accepted..There is no guarantee,if a person isn't a money maker,chances are a person will be denied,and chances are a person will end up miles away from their loved ones.How do I know this?.Because It has happened to me and my family twice already with a loved one.Once with my mother,placed out of state 180 miles away,and now with a dear Aunt not from this area but from this State,who sits in a Hospital Pysch unit,because no nursing home in her area will accept her,because even though she has Dementia from a stroke,she is still ambulatory,plus we were told it would be too costly for facility to admit her.She will likely be placed out of State also.Real nice huh!?.Thats whats going on with private facilties.The County Home accepts everybody!.It needs to left as is,its for all of us!.

Now, now Captain, when have bothersome facts and data ever had more value than 1950s ideology and antiquated supply side economic principles?

If Edwards' leadership is the main problem -- and not the financial viability of the Home -- then get rid of Edwards, but not by cowardly means at the expense of our most vulnerable citizens.

Very well said! I applaud Mr Whitney for voting with his conscious, instead of following Edwards and his sheep who were willing to "dump" CCH for a fraction of what it's worth to an owner/operator who has a terrible reputation within the industry.

What's equally alarming is the high number of people on this site who are aware of these facts, yet still voice their approval. If this is how the majority feel, it's a shameful testament to the moral character of county residents.
