Maybe a post-dated, certified check or bank draft would have solved the problem. Life is a learning process.

Sorry to disagree rumblefish but public or private you will still pay for care as your taxes go to Medicaid and Medicare. Selling the home won't change that. The reimbursment rate will be higher for private home so you will pay more in taxes. It is just a matter of which tax you pay, not that you won't pay.

we know of cases where the families are from out of state, set a residency here(6 months) transfer all real money and property that mom or pop have, so they get or have a bed and the family keeps the property and funds, we also know of county residents being admitted to the home, but their property can not or have not been taken and sold because family is still living in the home, bottom line is the taxpayer pays the cost, selling takes the taxpayer off the hook for this tactic

Bulldog you are the most uncaring poster I have ever seen. Do you know no one who ever got sick through no fault if their own? Do you know no one with dementia? Do you have any idea what the cost of a nursing home is? Even after selling all their assets most people cannot cover a home for years. Your total lack of empathy for others is sad because it says so much about you.

Platscheck should've offered $20M for the home, wrote a check for $30M, and then tell Edwards to send back the balance. I'm sure some of the posters on here who favor selling the home at ANY cost would've bit.

Great news!!!! According to Edwards in an article in Business First(****bizjournals****/buffalo/news/2013/08/21/chautauqua-nursing-home-sale-not-a.html) the home is now only losing about $7,000 a day. We made up $2,000a day. And if you remember way back when someone said it would only take $18.00 from each taxpayer a year to keep the home, now that could even be less. The laywers for Platschek tells a different story than Edwards. They claim the were ready to pay and Edwards told them they should restructor the signed deal. WHY? Didn't Edwards say it was a great deal? Article also explains that Platschek is part of a downstate investment group working to take over the other three homes. They are operating them, but the sale is not done.

Bulldog10 the gas well was drilled and capped. They have never taken any gas out of it or allowed it to be hooked up to the county home. It just sits there.

machinehead, do you know whether the gaa well is producing gas and if so how much. Like I said in another article on the same subject, I would be more then willing to look at the purchase of that wells rights. It is a real asset and the county should be trying to sell it IF it is not producing money for the county right now. Will you check into it for me?

Once again.The earnest money was being held by the law firm of Wright,Wright and Hampton of Jamestown NY.One of the Wrights is the husband of the Finance Director at the County Home.A conflict of interest and a shady deal.Now the earnest money was never put in??.Edwards and the Homes finance director need to be called on the carpet!.Edwards approved the nearly $500,000 gas well funded with taxpayer money and it still sits there unused?.Gross incompetence and failure of job duties,grounds for removal!.Lies beget lies beget lies!.The lies have caught up with Edwards.When will everyone see what kind of phoney this man really is!.

How many young people today could care less, just want to party, don't want to work. Are we to support them all with welfare benefits and then when they get run down and out at 50 plug them into the county home. People have to make good and smart decisions in life, if you pick not to work and not to get long term care, decide not to take care of yourself or your family MAYBE you deserve what you get. Nothing. Why is it always the taxpayers who have to pick up the tab for those who refuse to help themselves in the greatest country ever? If you can't make it happen here in the USA what would your life be like in a 3rd world country?

we are all going to be old someday, it is what you do before you get old to support your family and yourself. It is not the taxpayer's fault to support you because you were a failure in life.

Of all the entitlements that this county hands out, a percentage of it fraudulent why can't they figure out a way to save the home and financially operate it for the taxpaying citizens of this county?

I would imagine that a majority of the county's taxpayers either currently has or has had or will have in the future a need for the county home for themselves or their loved ones.

It seems that our elderly are being forgotten when talking about selling the home. If it gets privatized, what happens to those that can no longer afford it?

Eliminating what some of you have called a "money pit" will hardly save the taxpayers a single dime. It will simply give newly realized tax revenues to the county officials to approve for the "less fortunate" entitlement programs. Eliminate some of this outrageous spending and divert it to the county home.

It's a shame the way that we treat our elderly, and one day you will be one of them!!

DKexpat I would have expected that sort of remark from others but not you! Maybe "notalways" should understand what is and is not misleading. How can anyone post that which he did and believe it to be factual?

They need to rename the County Home to Shady Home -- as there have been nothing but shady characters, shady stories and shady deals going on with the place.

I can't wait for the next shady installment of this soap opera...

our suggestion to the is as follows "if at first you don't succeed, than by all means try-try again", you owe the over strapped taxpayers, the sooner this money pit is sold the better

Once again mislead by Edwards!!! On 8/8 the article said ...with a 1.65 million good faith deposit to the county. On8/14 ...Horrigan noted Platscheks put 1.65 million in escrow. On 8/11 ....Platschek has offered a 1.65 million good faith deposit to the county. These are all articles that mislead the readers to believe that this already happened which was the reason we had to have a quick decision. Remember our good friends M & M found this buyer!
