Granny, More confusing information that keeps emerging. The county home IS NOT going to close so this information does not apply. The CCH is going to be sold, not closed.

This is directly from another report conducted by the CGR on the future of public nursing homes in NY state..

"The typical county home estimates that between 75 and 100 current residents (about 20% to 25% of all residents) would not be served by other nursing homes if the county home were to close. "

This is a HUGE reason why I oppose the sale of the HOME. I care about those residents. They are my neighbors, my friends, and could be my family.

I am just so amazed reading the comments from Jamestown. Seriously, have any of you ever gone to the HOME? What better use of our tax dollars would you suggest if not to care for our most vulnerable citizens?

Oh, and I hope all of you took the time to read the report..that shows the HOME operates on a SURPLUS!!!

Yep, some are misleading us as to the costs. Get FACTS

" Feb-12-13 6:52 PM Agree | Disagree Also take notice of the posters that attack other posters. There are those of us who post on the subject matter and then there are those who post comments about other members.

Take notice who they are."

They are you sueanne. You are the biggest joke of all.

I agree brent, those against the sale don't care about improving the county home, don't care about getting tax dollars to local schools, don't care about improving care and services to the patients,

We need a better home for our seniors. Who is against these improvements.

I see posted many advantages to the local ecomony, schools, patients, taxpayers and employees when the home is sold but I dont see any advantages in keeping it.

The county charter is not going to be changed. This is a local law replacing an existing local law.

The voters will have their say, many points have been made by many posters, we will see what the people of Chautauqua County want.

I dont want my tax dollars spent on something that private business can operate much better for the patients and the taxpayers. I would like to see our home go to a multi star rating like William Rothners other homes.

The patients deserve a higher rated home than one star.

sueanne...what part of they are making those figures up do you not understand?

They are misleading the public.

Did any of you even bother to read the report that we paid for?

Oh..surplus..you mean like the one the county BORROWED from in prior years?

Why are you all so convinced that this home needs to be sold? What about the gas well that cost us $350,000...and was never connected? Where is your outrage about that?

Good grief...just what do you think should be the priorities for our tax dollars if not to care for our fellow citizens in their time of need?

I seriously do not think, from reading the comments, that any of you have bothered to visit the home, or read the report that we as taxpayers just paid for.

If you want a link to the study will gladly provide it. Read the report then make a comment. I for one am outraged that elected officials would MISLEAD me as to the cost of something just so they could push their agenda.

How can the "owners/legislators " of a one star facility say it would bad to sell to an operator of a five star facility. Do we really know why the facility is a one star? Maybe it is time that was made public.

Good post Granny. All the name calling and harassment won't accomplish anything. Same old same old crew spouting off about how dumb everyone is who has a difference of opinion. Changing the charter for this is opening the door for a lot of problems and it is a bad idea. What is draining the county are able bodied people who refuse to work. If you can't find a job here, move on to where you can. Welfare and Medicaid are for the truly needy.

Surplus, what does that mean? It means they haven't spent all of the 3 million of the taxpayers money and have a surplus of taxpayers money.

Just more deception, voters are smarter than that.

Forgot about that Fred, Whitney has not paid his property taxes in two years. Lets ask him about that when we call. 640-1099.

At least 50% of the people in Dunkirk/Fredonia are wise enough to see that the home needs to be sold. To keep peace, most of them are keeping quiet publicly but they are still out there.

Whitney is just as dumb as Cornell. Neither one of these people knows a thing about managing anything. Whitney can't even pay the taxes on his own house. How can he be trusted with anything involving the county.

Whitney and Cornell are NOT listening to the people they represent. The majority of people I have talked to from Jamestown want to see the home sold. Did they not listen to Mr Horrigan's report of William Rothner. I commend him for taking HIS time to do all the research. Wake up Cornell and Whitney. Maybe Cornell should abstain from voting this time since she has "ties" to the County Home. Sell it-save the tax payers of Chautauqua County thei tax dollars and stop the BS.

Good Grief...do you think the only people in this county that count are from Jamestown? Have none of you ventured out of the city to see the county home for yourself?

Have you not read the report..you know the one WE paid for..that clearly states the HOME operates on a SURPLUS and that we have been mislead by the figures given out in the media?

Have you not asked why after we paid for this report that none of the suggestions for cutting costs or increasing revenues have been implemented?

Oh..just keep on voting until you get the outcome that you want. Some democracy here huh?

Oh..and yes I am one who is PROUD that my taxes go to help care for our most vulnerable citizens. And you do understand that even if the HOME is sold, our taxes will NOT go down by one dime!!

madman...gosh have you said that to our Senate? They have been requiring a super majority on almost every bill that is presented. Glad to see you support the changes in the filibuster rules.

Wisechoice, i agree with your post.

when you have dishonest legislators like whitney and cornell, caught in their deception and lies are they fit to serve the people in any capacity. These people are what is so wrong with government.
