LETTER: Concerned about outgoing board

On Nov. 6, we, the people of the community of Blythe, turned out in record numbers to have our voices heard loud and clear. The majority spoke and the incumbents were voted off the PVH Board. Their reign of poor financial decisions ends in just a few short days. What are they doing to help PVH in their last days of "power"? Well, you will be outraged when you go to the PVH website. Their last PVH Board meeting is scheduled for Nov. 28. The agenda reads like a retaliation campaign against the people of this community.

Item #11.B on the agenda shows that the Board will be reviewing the CEO's salary. Could they take a parting shot at this community by increasing this already exorbitant number? Next, #11.D speaks of a plan to vote to give the CEO the power to write exclusive contracts? A new surgeon was brought in; and Dr. Sahlolbei is helping to keep their surgeon here by sharing his office and office staff! If the CEO or any one person is given this type of power they will be able to legally bind this community to pay out money we don't have; and they will have the power to spend and spend without personal consequence. Is this Board trying to leave us unprotected?

The current Board consistently, tries to deflect their shortcomings by targeting, Dr. Sahlolbei. They say the answer to all of PVH's problems is bringing in new doctors. This is not realistic; these new doctors don't stay long and want more than our community has to offer. You don't have to personally like all the doctors who have come and stayed, but you should give them credit, where credit is due. They have become great friends to this community and they are extremely generous with their money and time.

Don't let the outgoing PVH Board members take away the power of your vote. Don't let their last attempt at bullying this community into destroying our hospital become final without raising up your voices once again. Please, go to their last Board meeting. Let them know why you voted them out!

- Jarrod Saude, Blythe

U know little if anything about the gun episode and are guilty of slander. The Dr. bought the gun new and was asked to see it.. He took the gun to show the requestors. It was legit and legal, no police, no arrest, no taking the gun. The Dr.give the gun to the other Dr's to sell. A former insurance agent offered to buy it at a board meeting. What happened is that another Dr hater like u saw a opportunity to slander and tried to make a issue of it.

No my problem with him is attitude.his demeanor.his bed side manners.I saw all of this at board meetings.and to take a weapon to a meeting in a paper sack and give to Lucero and brooks I am suppose to find that kind of behavior appropriate.And not only that he (deleted) .So no I don't like him at all.

Unfortunately for you majority does rule when it comes to elections. Obviously a large chunk of the town disagrees with you. Your side needs to wake up and realize that you LOST! You have not liked him since the first time he got into the hospital? Do you have a problem with his ethnicity or something?

Oh you are so impressed with the doctor all well and good.There are the other of us who are not so thrilled with him. .I for one have not cared for him from the first day he hit the hospital.I refuse to be treated by him..Any one that carries a weapon into a hospital can not be trusted.

Obviously you do not have any idea of what you are talking about! Where is Dr S talking about what all he does for the community? The author is just telling you a small amount of what he has seen the doc do here in town. Dr S does a lot more than just buy animals at the fair. He unlike others in this town does not call the newspaper every time he does or ask to have a banner put up advertising himself at events. Just because someone is not out in front garnering the spotlight does not mean they do not do things in the background. The people that stay in the background are the ones that truly do things out of kindness with no motive involved. If you really think getting rid of Dr. S will fix the ills of our hospital then you must be totally uninformed or have been fed a load by the haters in this town.

The only time the author speaks out is when his wife who works for Dr S may lose money. The author is in no way independent and depends on Dr S keeping the money coming in. It wouldn't matter if it was Dr P - he would be biased - can't base decisions on his input. Dr S has done so little for this community when you compare what other community members have contributed in the way of 4H etc. The community members who will not stand up and bragg like Dr S have spent 5 times the money and TIME that Dr S has - don't even tell us what all the good Dr does for us - NOTHING but (deleted) including bring the gun to the meeting - remember that? This author was praising this dr at that time too.Site Administrator's note: A portion of this comment has been removed because it violated our Terms of use Agreement.

If it wasn't so serious it would seem like a Bravo Chanel show. C'mon people, one way or another settle your differences and get this crap over with. Keep this crud up & sooner or later you'll have to answer to Honey Boo-Boo! Maybe ya'll should "Red-Neck-Ugg-Nize"!
