I have an idea. Get a JOB and stop living off of the government.

We have to keep in mind two things about the new owners. First, they are FOR PROFIT, second, they are a Tennessee based company where unions are virtually unheard of. Don't expect any concession they don't absolutely have to make. CHS is in healthcare to make a profit, and they don't bend to union demands.
Call it greedy if you must, but CHS is keeping this place going. And they must be doing something right if the hospital is financially solvent. Welcome to the new world of healthcare.

Why would the restaurant have shut down afterwards? They are a business, and they don't make money if they are closed. It's not the restaurant's fault a drug addict decided to OD in their bathroom.

I used to lifeguard at North Side pool back in the mid 90s. It was the old round pool, and most of the kids walked to it. I had a great time working there. I remember that one summer there were actually three pools open: North Side, Borts, and the pool on the east side (the name of that one escapes me). The biggest problem then was lack of lifeguards. The lifeguards were afraid to guard at the city pools because of reputations for violence. North Side never had a problem, but I recall one of the biggest problems at Borts were the neighbors who didn't want the pool open. One summer they threw broken glass into the pool one week before the end of the season. Undeterred, McRae had the pool cleaned and reopened for the last few days.
The city should have pools open for neighborhood kids to walk to. We complain about youth violence, yet we don't want to provide fun, safe places for them to go.

Stan does not work and lives off of the government. Then he has the tenacity to complain about everyone else. Stan, get a job and you won't have so much time to sit around and complain.

Yes, drop means drop, but we don't know the whole story. Was the man threatening someone with the knife, or just standing there holding it? If it was the latter, the police should not have shot him. That is what tasers are for. Just because someone doesn't follow police orders does not mean that person should receive a death sentence.

Let's see here...gas prices are high now, and they were high in 2008. Right now a Democrat is in office and the Republicans carry the House, and the opposite was true in 2008. So if it is the Dems fault now, whose fault was it in 2008? Because I clearly remember how everyone blamed the high gas prices in 2008 on the Democrat-led Congress.

So what are you saying Stan? She shouldn't go to jail? After 17 arrests she obviously needs jail time. She should have gotten jail before now. And those arrests don't even count the times she wasn't caught.

So are you saying Bush didn't rake in billions in profits for big oil and banks? During the Bush era big oil had record profits, and his deregulation of banks helped them to record profits by giving mortgages to anyone who could breathe. But or course that's okay because it's a free market, right?

So the 18 year-olds fighting at Chaney got 10 day school suspensions. They are adults. What about some time behind bars in a real jail? While we're at it, let's get rid of the wrist-slapping juvenile court and hand these juvenile delinquents some real sentences. Maybe some hard jail time will teach these thugs that high school isn't so bad. And if they don't learn keep them in the slammer, because that is where they will eventually end up, anyways.
